Best Paranormal I've Read Yet

Now this is what paranormal should be! At last, some real suspense and plots that make sense. Sit up and take notice writers of paranormal. Just because we love vampires and ghosts and so forth doesn't mean we don't have a brain. Oh, and these stories are told from the ...
Now this is what paranormal should be! At last, some real suspense and plots that make sense. Sit up and take notice writers of paranormal. Just because we love vampires and ghosts and so forth doesn't mean we don't have a brain. Oh, and these stories are told from the sexual and somewhat twisted side of the paranormal world, so its for adults only! I loved every story and recommend it to lovers of erotica and of paranormal stories.

Okay, I really like and respect Nancy Madore. I think she's a brilliant writer that offers insightful modern stories that [at least in her previous works] are cleverly supported by the familiar framework of an old fairy tale. Truly enjoyable. Impressed by her style and her mission [to discover & publish stories that reflect the contemporary woman's most popular sexual fantasies] - I've eagerly jumped into any work with her name on it.

Well, this jump landed me in cold water without a life jacket. Her writing was solid; her creativity and originality still top notch; but the stories themselves were [in MHO] not erotic or romantic and honestly left me more baffled and/or horrified than intrigued or even entertained.

She abandoned the fairy tale structure but really, this was no sweat - she's still a fab writer, so I wasn't concerned. I should have been.

I honestly think I missed the marketing boat on this one - when the subtitle mentioned "supernatural" I thought we'd get our mundane unrequited love with a ghost, shapeshifter, werewolf, etc. I thought I'd read stories that, at worst, raised an eyebrow or at best, made me hot & bothered.

Instead, I got stories that truly left me scared or disturbed - not what I'm looking for in something marketed to me as a romantic/erotic novel. I didn't want to read about some weirdo who filed her canines down to become fangs so she could attack and drink the blood of a vampire [one of the happier stories, I assure you] and I sure didn't want to read about cannibalism.

This novel was a Halloween special and I unfortunately missed the clues. Perhaps in another genre, these stories deserve 5 stars [though from a technical point of view, the last story seemed rushed, was boring and had that familiar whiff of "filler to meet a deadline"], but for Romance/Erotic I'm going to give her 3.

In short, I was freaked out & unhappy. One story gave me a damned nightmare. I read romance for a reason people - I have a vivid imagination and prefer to let only "happy" things invade my dreams. If that's not you - then perhaps you can appreciate these stories as they are well written and creative. However, if you're looking for romance... run away from this novel or you'll wish you did.
