Recommendations from Peggy for August 2014.

In order to bring some more variety to my blog, I have asked some of my bookish friends to tell about the books they have in the past month, and to give us a recommendation. Today’s post is made by Peggy from Belgium.


I have read 5 novella’s and 7 novels in the past month, and the 3 books I enjoyed the most are:

1. Must love fangs – Jessica Sims

The one I can recommend to all Aurian’s readers is:

Jessica Sims – Must love fangs

The third book in the "funny, sexy, and lively" (Publishers Weekly) romance series about a paranormal dating service called Midnight Liaisons.

My goal for this summer was to read a lot of books and… so far so good!!
I discovered a few novella’s from Jessica Sims that I didn’t know about (how this got happen, I still don’t understand!) and I discovered a new writer whose series I really love. So I’m having a great summer (even when the weather isn’t good here).

‘Must love fangs’ is the third (novel) book in the Midnight Liaisons series. (There are a few novella’s in between, so I discovered.) I really love this series. The series is about a paranormal dating agency called Midnight Liaisons.

This story is about Marie Bellavance (a human) who works for this special dating agency. She’s one of the few humans who knows about the existence of the supernatural creatures. But she has a secret of her own. She’s dying. She has the same incurable disease her mother died from. Marie knows she hasn’t much time left but there’s maybe a chance to survive it. Her plan? To find someone who can turn her into a supernatural creature! That will save her.

Only problem, the alpha’s of the shapeshifters have just forbidden the shapeshifters to turn humans into one. So the only option left for Marie is to find a vampire to turn her.
So now she’s on the hunt of finding a vampire who will turn her into one and she’s using the agency to find one.

Were-cougar Joshua Russell has had an eye for Marie for a very long time but she has always kept her distance and because she’s a human, she also off limits. But when he finds out she wants to date vampires, he propose her to help her with this. Seeing as he’s a vampire bodyguard he’s the perfect ‘man’ to help her find a vampire. And it’s also the perfect excuse for Joshua to spend a lot of time with Marie, so he can seduce her to date him instead of a vampire. But then he finds out the real reason for her searching for a vampire. And this places him for a dilemma, because how can he stop her? What do you do, when the woman that you love is dying and the only way to save her, is to help her find a vampire to turn her into one and by doing this you lose her forever or you turn her yourself into a were-cougar but then you lose the family that you love. How do you choose?

Like I said before, I really love Jessica Sims books and this was no exception. You have sexy were-cougars, a human woman with a lot of sass, funny situations and a love story. What more do you need? In this book we read a bit more about the vampires and how a human woman gets turned into….a supernatural (I won’t tell which).

Before ending this review, I just want to say that I also really loved ‘The Regenade series’ from Andria Large (a new writer for me). I think these books are perfect if you’re searching for a (short,) sweet, emotional story to read. Although emotional they weren’t too ‘heavy’ to read. Just a great love story.

I’m off…diving in my big pile of books to read (and find) some more great books. I hope you all are having a great summer too.

Aurian: Thanks for the recommendation Peggy! I really do want to read this series, it sounds like fun! Happy reading!

  2. OH that sounds fun. I don't think I've read any by her yet.

  3. Oh they're all new to me I confess, thanks for the discovery! They look good!

  4. I haven't read any of these titles yet, however Jessica Sims has been on my TBR pile for quite some time, so perhaps I'll start with Must Love Fangs seeing how Peggy enjoyed it so much.

  5. I haven't read any of these and I'm going to have to pick them up!
