Review: Vexing the Viscount by Emily Bryan

Review by Jennifer Drake

Vexing the Viscount by Emily Bryan is a charming story about Daisy Drake and Lucian Beaumont, Viscount Rutland. Daisy, the niece of a pirate, has quite a spark and unique flare in how she lives life. She speaks both French and ancient Latin, but since she doesn’t know about the pleasures of the flesh is reading some risqué books in her great aunts library. (Luckily her great aunt’s a fantastic supporter of a woman’s right to learn about these things.) Our leading Viscount, whose family is in dire straights financially, is a little stubborn (as most great heroes are) but a bit lonely as well.

Emily: Sure. I was born in Missouri, grew up in Des Moines, and graduated from University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Music.

Review: "Cave of Terror" by Amber Dawn Bell

Review by Jennifer Drake

Cave of Terror by Amber Dawn Bell, is a paranormal story about a young woman who has just turned 16, and as a lovely gift she finds out she’s the rare and one and only slayer of evil. Her parents both turn out to be vampires, which again she finds out on her 16th birthday. (Don’t worry this gives nothing away it’s on the first page.) So aside from figuring out how being a “real life Buffy” will fit into her life, she has of course, the normal troubles of a teenage girl on top of everything else also.
