Tra le braccia della notte I discovered yesterday that I ownthan eight hundred romances Straightforward, luridly covered paperbacks from Messrs Harlequin Mills Boon and associated publications So I ve

covered paperbacks from Messrs Harlequin Mills Boon and associated publications So I ve decided that one of these days, when I m done with myimportant chores, like cleaning the toilet and reorganizing my groceries in alphabetical order, I will collate all of these romances, borrowing maybe a paragraph in total from each of these books, to achieve a manuscript approximately one hundred and eighty pages long This novel will be full of best selling sexplicit imagery, where she will slide her wet, warm heat along the length of his hard throbbing manhood while his silver eyes watched her with a strong and hawkish possessiveness that screamed Mine And of course, I will put in some fairies for the sex , some werewolves for the sex , some angels for the duh sex and some vampires to be the bad guys and also, for some sex I can almost see my name up there on the New York Times Bestseller list already.Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have discovered the secret to becoming a bestselling author It s quite simple, really, all you need is one Alpha alpha male that means hairy, chest thumping, caveman type alpha male , one liberated woman who secretly just wants to be possessed and dominated and told to keep to her place in the kitchen, a few million cliches and lots and lots of SEX Now don t go stealing my formula just cause I ve put it out there in the webosphere, you plagiaristic bitches I have no problems with lots and lots of sex I m fairly sure that at least fifty percent of my eight hundred strong collection of romances is built solely on the foundation of lots and lots of sex, and since I m not suddenly expecting Marquez to start writing for Mills Boon, I m not shocked that these books are formulaic, predictable and have no plotline whatsoever However, I expected better of Nalini Singh, yessir, I did Within her selected genre of paranormal romance, I think Singh has been doing a good job Much, much better than a lot of the tripe out there She s done some decent worldbuilding, especially with her Psy Changeling Universe, and the stories don t annoy me the way most romances do these days Aah, I long for my younger,uncritical days when the sameness of romantic fiction never palled Despite the arrant inequality displayed by the relationship in the Guild Hunter series, I still liked the first two books Probably because it had only a couple of sex scenes, max In the first book, it took until almost the end for the thousand year old archangel to stop trying to intimidate the puny human and seduce her instead In the second book, the puny human had become a puny angel from whom the overprotective archasshole withheld sex because she was too hmm, let me think yes, that s it Too puny But they sure made up for it by fucking like bunnies in the third book Seriously, at times I was tempted to tell Singh to stop trying to come up with a plotline and just describe their endless sexathons throughout the book That way, at least, I wouldn t have spent the last two days propping my eyelids open with matchsticks and flipping though at least eighty percent of the book in an attempt to avoid the meaty parts and get to the story This book had no point The mystery was thin and unappealing, like day old porridge gasp Was that a cliche Oh no and sandwiched between too many sex scenes to count Had a bad day, Elena Let s make it all better by having some sex Your daddy was mean to you, darling DOn t worry, you ll be much happier as soon as we have some sex Finishing sparring practice that s left you limp and sweaty and exhausted You ll be all sprightly again with just a little sex Having a shower Let s accompany that with some sex, shall we Oh, you re breathing That means we must have sex now And so on There s just so much throbbing cock and jutting nipples a person can take before you want to gag and start wondering if you ll ever have sex again And when they re not having sex, they re arguing about Raphael s need to cosset his puny angel And her desire to be conidered his equal And flashbacks to the same few scenes of her past that I have already revisited, SEVERAL TIMES, in the previous books All of the things that made the earlier books bearable, such as a storyline, and Elena s sassiness and humour, tight, fast paced writing, it s all just GONE Elena s so manic depressive in this book, and she s always running to Raphael to kiss her wounds better, and then she wonders why he s mollycoddling her all the time This book was such a huge disappointment Nalini Singh brought me back to reading romances after I had given up in disgust post the unending boredom of Pregnant Mistress, Playboy Prince type stories, and I expected better of her I just hope the next installment in the Psy Changeling series brings the romance back into her stories Literally This is a spoiler FREE review for book three, Archangel s Consort, but there are spoilers relating to the first two books in this series.Although Elena is now an angel, she is still very young in the immortal world With the help of her lover, archangel Raphael and his Seven, those that have vowed their loyalty to him, Elena is getting stronger and wise in the immortal ways every day She is able to fly now, although the vertical lift off and endurance still eludes her Now that she is stronger, This is a spoiler FREE review for book three, Archangel s Consort, but there are spoilers relating to the first two books in this series.Although Elena is now an angel, she is still very young in the immortal world With the help of her lover, archangel Raphael and his Seven, those that have vowed their loyalty to him, Elena is getting stronger and wise in the immortal ways every day She is able to fly now, although the vertical lift off and endurance still eludes her Now that she is stronger, she has left the refuge and is back in New York City Since she is the first made angel anyone has ever seen, she creates quite the spectacle.Although she is now an angel, she still has hunter blood in her, and has gone back to occasionally helping The Guild track rogue vampires She would be working their full time, but Raphael is scared to keep her out of his sights She is also still dealing with a father that disowned her many years ago, and giving up her normal hunter life She has moved in with Raphael, and although he accepts her and loves unconditionally, everything is still new and raw.Terrible storms and deadly weather events have been taking place all over the world Raphael knows this weather is no coincidence There is legend that talks of these extreme events when an ancient awakens and that ancient that is coming to, is his mother The archangel Caliane The rebirth of an archangel is on the horizon, and it is disrupting everything and everyone The awakening process can take up to a year, things slowly building until the unknown occurs When Caliane went under the Sleep, she was insane Has her sanity been restored Will this all power being cause mass destruction, or take her place among the angels again When a child is murdered by a vampire at the same school that Elena s half sisters attend, she knows the attack is aimed at her But soon they discover this is not the normal vampire that goes into bloodlust Someone else is pulling the strings As vampires rage, and Caliane slowly awakens, Elena and Raphael must turn to each other when family matters become overbearing, and the love they share for each other deepens even.I devoured Archangel s Consort and it only makes me love this serious , if that is even possible Where to start First, I loved the conflict in this one The idea of Raphael s mother, slowly waking possibly over a year is just an awesome concept As Raphael says, my mother is the monster that scares other monsters As she wakes, these tumultuous events occur all over the world, wreaking havoc Vampires rage, angels rage, and of course there are twists thrown in that make it all that muchfun in the end.Elena herself is still struggling Physically, she is getting stronger every day, mentally she is still playing games with Dmitri and the other angels trying to find her place I LOVE that Nalini Singh gives Elena such a hard road once she becomes an angel It is so interesting to read her about her immortality, because it is such a struggle Her wings are heavy and ache, she can t lift off vertically, which can be devastating during certain situations She must play these mind games with the other immortals, always fearful they may take their hatred towards her one step too far She also faces with off with Raphael onthan one occasion He is overprotective of his hunter, and she doesn t like to have babysitters In this one we get lots of good things with Dmitri, Illium, my favorite Blue Bell, and the dark, mysterious Jason I m dying for those three books their stories are so intriguing and I can not wait to learnabout them We also learnfrom vampire Venom and the angel Aodhan Nalini Singh s supporting characters are amazing in this series and add so much to these books.I saved the best for last oh Raphael One of the most intense alphas I have ever read about There is no cracking jokes there is no goofing off He is alpha, he is archangel, and he means business In and out of bed Oh yes Although Raphael is ancient, and extremely powerful, he needs his little hunter He needs her on a level that is so intimate I think that is a good word to describe their relationship The romance scenes between Raphael and Elena are powerful, raw, intense, dark and so intimate Nalini Singh writes their passion on another level.The way she writes the angels, their flying, landing, taking off, soaring in the skies it really sets up for a beautiful book To offset their exquisite beauty, the angels are so far from mortality that they are these creatures that are sometimes so abhorrent Mortals to many of them are just play things They can be so violent and cruel I love the contrast.This book comes out January 25th and if you have not picked up the first two books Angels Blood and Archangel s Kiss , I urge you to try this series All three books are about Raphael and Elena, although in book two and three you also get Raphael s point of view They are much darker and intense than her Psy Changeling books This is a paranormal series not to be missed Gosh, how I enjoy reading this series Especially about Elena and Raphael They truly are one of my all time fav couples They simply support each other so well and their love is unbreakable Even when it at times seems that one might be in a bad and cold place, the other doesn t give up and pulls till they see light again Their journey is amazing and this new adventure hits very close to Raphael s past and heart We also get to seeof China s archangel, who developed into something else t Gosh, how I enjoy reading this series Especially about Elena and Raphael They truly are one of my all time fav couples They simply support each other so well and their love is unbreakable Even when it at times seems that one might be in a bad and cold place, the other doesn t give up and pulls till they see light again Their journey is amazing and this new adventure hits very close to Raphael s past and heart We also get to seeof China s archangel, who developed into something else than what we d call a living creature Death is her friend and she will use it to get what she wants and in the end that is always going to bepower There are some hints about how the story will continue in the six book and I already know that the action is going to be epic Besides her, I loved Bluebell and the slight introduction to his mother, so touching Also we get to seeof Elena s past and family drama and what the Guild thinks of her new form of being I really loved the story and I cannot wait to get into the next story SEVEN REASONS WHY I LOVE SINGH S SEVEN 1 They are seven of the hottest vamps and angels out there Singh answered my call to heaven for a book about angels and vampires Sexy angels Sexy vampires enflamed panties Genius 2 They like to trash talk like thisSure you can handle me, pretty, pretty Bluebell Did I ever tell you about my snakeskin boots I do think I need some new feathers for my pillow 3 They dress like GQ models in black on black suits Venom, you smexy beast 4 Even

potent and alluring that even a woman in love like Elena falls prey to his lures It s like BREATHING SEX I cannot wait for his book Archangel s Blade, September 2011 6 They are as lethal as they are graceful Singh writes vivid and gory action scenes that juxtapose well against the beauty of the hunters, angels and vamps 7 And lastly, Dmitri, Illium, Aodhan, Venom, Galen, Naasir, and Jason would give their life for their Sire, Raphael and in turn, for his consort as well Their loyalty is a sign of friendship of the deepest level I love it when characters have strong bonds with others outside of their relationships.I ADORED THIS BOOK I wish I could live in this world soo badly I ve said this countless times, but Singh s worldbuilding is so spectacular How does she come up with this Elena is my favourite UF heroine ever My favourite scene is where she falls through the ceiling and sets her flamethrower on those bastard vamps BAD.ASS And even though she may not be in 100% hunter shape, she s still got her hunter born senses and can definitely spar with Venom, Galen or even Raphael any day She also has vulnerabilities that make her such an appealing heroine that I can t help but adore.Familiar faces show up and I loved reading about Sara, Deacon aka gorgeous manflesh , Zoe and Ransom Even Ash shows up briefly I adore them just as much as the Seven Well, maybe not as much But probably the most mind blowing thing about this book is Singh s writing Each line is quotable on its own and written with such heart My favourite parts are when she describes her characters This is a particularly good oneHis heart stopped beating as he watched her come toward him, an archangel of such piercing beauty that she spawned legends and caused empires to fall Her hair was a waterfall of ebony down her back, thick and wild with silken curls his father had loved to fist in his hands as he kissed her, her eyes a piercing hue that he saw in the mirror every single day of his life.Caliane had given him her eyes, her powerperhaps her madness Bottom line Guild Hunter is one of my top three favourite series of all time LOVED IT Buddy read with the UF lovers of Buddies Books and BaublesI m pretty behind on reviews so this one will be shorter.The series is picking up for me now in this third book There is an old power rising and it is affecting the Angels in ways they didn t predict

her Angel abilities over time and I see her being a good match to Raphael He is changing a little and I think she helps his ability to empathize There relationship is growing and even though they have sex like rabbits some is now fade to black soof the story is dominant in this installment.Still this is the last book focused on them for awhile so I forward to seeing what some of the others deep

nuts Raphael, the Archangel of New York and his newly made consort, the angel in training and hunter extraordinaire Elena, are still trying to figure out how a relationship of a very human and recently mortal hunter and a very powerful, over 1000 years old Archangel, son of two of the most powerful ancient Archangels and member of the Cadre, could possibly work and be fair and satisfying for both of them Their view and reference points are so different and far apart, that it seems as if they could create an insurmountable reef between them But they do not give up Knowing that what they have is very special and unique, that she has been given a chance to enter his world and become a part of it, that she is strong enough to hold her own in a world of predators, of beings so powerful and apart from humanity, that the lives of thousands mean nothing to them, and that he has a hunger and need inside of him which only she can fill, they are ready to learn to be what each other needs And Elena is going to try to stay strong, try to be there for her Archangel, the man who needsof her humanity in order to stay saneDeath holds no allure for me, Elena The power of him cut against his skin, a cold white fire Not when I have yet to sate my hunger for youHowever, despite their determination to make things work, it does seem that the world is set on doing everything possible in order to break them, change them, and put up all traps and barriers to make them fail in their attempts And the parents are being very unhelpful It is not enough that Elena s dad has been acting like her adversary ever since the death of her mother and sisters, but Raphael s crazy mommy dearest is beginning to awaken from her thousand year beauty sleep and she already is sending not so veiled threats to her son s lover, whom of course she finds completely inappropriate and far, far beneath him Ooooo, what wonder our families can be sometimesA lot of women have trouble with their mothers in law Raphael s look was priceless My mother is an insane archangelOooo, don t they sound like an average everyday family though Mmmmmeybe not On top of the daddy from hell and mommy nightmare, Elena finds out that one of her half sisters is dealing with issues close to her heart and it opens old wounds in her soul Insane and threatening creatures are in abundance and the two lovebirds, Raphael s Seven, and Elena s family and friends are all caught in the crossfire Action, blood, torture and intrigues ensue and we are once again compelled by the story not to put the book down until the end I got so caught up in it, that I forgot to post on the BR thread Sorry about that, guys I love this world and I have grown to truly appreciate Nalini s style, which is deceptively simple and unassuming I already am invested in the story, Love Elena, and am beginning to care for Raphael, if not for any other reason, then that he makes her very happy I loooooove Bluebell He is wonderful and I can not wait to find out everything about him and his storyRaphael, tell him you won t do anything to him if I get damaged That would be a lie, Elena I would tear out his throatSo, if you love Fantasy and like Paranormal Romance, this is for you A perfect read for the fans of the genre I wish you all Happy Reading and may the whimsy of Fantasy never leave you cold Per Elena Deveraux, tornare a New York non significa solo riprendere il lavoro di Cacciatrice, ma anche fare i conti coi Sette, i fedelissimi consiglieri di Raphael, un gruppo addestrato per proteggere l arcangelo da ogni possibile minaccia compresa Elena secondo loro, infatti, l a che Raphael prova per lei lo ha reso pi umano e, di conseguenza, pi debole Una debolezza che potrebbe costargli cara, soprattutto ora che la citt sconvolta da una serie di catastrofi naturali e un gruppo di vampiri rinnegati sta approfittando della confusione per seminare ulteriore panico tra la popolazione inerme Per questo, i Sette vorrebbero allontanare Elena, senza sapere che, in realt , lei l unica che pu salvare Raphael dalla terribile minaccia che grava di lui Perch i terremoti e le mareggiate che si sono verificati a New York sono i segni che preannunciano il risveglio di Caliane, il pi potente e pericoloso degli arcangeli dormienti, nonch madre di Raphael That she was loved it was wonder enough That she was loved by this man, it was beyond wonder.He would not hurt her, this hunter with a mortal heart who held his own in her hands Nalini Singh knows how to write relationships It is always beautiful the way she captures the magical feelings of falling in love She has a way of pulling you in and making you feel all of those wonderful moments I noticed it in the psy changling series, and in this one Along with writing the feelings of ne That she was loved it was wonder enough That she was loved by this man, it was beyond wonder.He would not hurt her, this hunter with a mortal heart who held his own in her hands Nalini Singh knows how to write relationships It is always beautiful the way she captures the magical feelings of falling in love She has a way of pulling you in and making you feel all of those wonderful moments I noticed it in the psy changling series, and in this one Along with writing the feelings of new love, she writes in all of those small touches and the body language of couples that are so natural that you don t even think about it She will write in how he is holding on to her waist, or she is leaning in to him as they are having a conversation Those are the things that couples do when they are near each other that they are compelled to do Even after 26 years together, I am automatically touching my husband in some way whenever we are next to each other It s the magnetism that brings couples together in the first place that continually draws them together whenever they are in the same space Singh captures this phenomenon beautifully.Elena and Raphael are an awesome couple I can be turned off by a male character who is so much and alpha that he is just a plain old dick, but I love Raphael and how he appreciates Elena s strength.When she sees a painting he had done of her for his apartment bedroom The painting was a full length portrait of her, knives in hand, wings spread, and feet planted in a combat ready stance as her hair few off her face in a playful wind The artist had captured her with her head tilted slightly to the side, a smile mingled challenge and desire on her face, laughter in her eyes Most men would choose a painting of a nude for the bedroom, she teased You chose a hunter with knives You are the only woman allowed in my bedroom, ElenaYeah, baby Elena also accepts that Raphael is not a mortal man and some of the things he does are tough for a mortal to understand He has power, and the huge responsibilities that go with it, that depends upon his ability to keep deadly and immortal creatures in line His justice can be brutal, but it s necessary.In this book, there are crazy things happening in the world like earthquakes, tsunamis, and strange weather There are also vampires suddenly going crazy and going off on killing rampages This can possibly mean that Raphael s mother, a powerful archangel who went crazy and then went to sleep a millennium ago, is waking up And, mommy dearest is a scary bitch who could kill the world Raphael and Elena have to decide what to do about Mom along with dealing with all of the murderous vampire rages happening It s just a typical day at the officeMy mother is the monster that scares other monstersGreat just greatAnd, of course, Mother in law from hell doesn t approve of Elena Mother in laws.always trying to kill you Am I right The supporting characters are also intriguing and I hope we get books that focus on them This series is worth reading if you like PNR 05 10 2016 Buddy read with my amazing friends over at BB BA consort wasthan a lover,than a

struggles with uncontrollable rage, it becomes clear that a terrifying immortal is risingThat she was lovedit was wonder enough That she was loved by this man, it was beyond wonder Elena is such a fantastic heroine She s still weaker than she used to be, having to strengthen her muscles and learning to use her wings, and it s so much fun seeing her train and growing stronger I love how she continues to stand up to Raphael when he becomes overbearing, and how hard she fought for him when things got bad for him in this book You hold me to the earth, ElenaRaphael is still the sexy and ruthless archangel that we ve come to know, but I love how much he s changed because of his love for Elena I loved seeing how romantic he could be, and how protective he is over her The evolvement of his powers are very interesting, and I wonder how much of it has to do with his bond with Elena I m not used to negotiating Most people gave him everything he demanded.A slow, slow smile that melted away the lingering tendrils of the cold rage within him I guess the next several hundred years are going to be an education then, huhI just love the romance between these two, and how their relationship continues to grow with every secret, every truth they share The sexy times were deliciously hot, especially that angel s dance sceneI am utterly captivated by Raphael s Seven They are so fascinating, each so broken that I just crave to know their stories I really hope they get their own books soon And we got to spend some time with Elena s wonderful friends Sara, Deacon, little Zoe and Ransom Oh, and the dog Slayer D My mother is the monster that scares other monsters In this instalment we learn a lotabout Elena s father and her half siblings I hate how Jeffrey continues to hurt Elena We also learn something about Elena s mother, which was very interesting.And then there s Raphael s mother, Caliane She was so loved before she went mad the way all old archangels doLijuan continues to grow in power, and what a terrifying thought that is I have no idea how they are going to defeat her, or even if they canThis is such a fantastic series, and with every book I read by this author I fallin love with her writing and her worlds Her spin on angels and vampires are unique and amazing Highly recommended. I strongly recommend not reading this review if you have not read the previous two books, Angels Blood and Archangel s Kiss It is impossible for me to write this review without including HUGE spoilers for the first book So, just know that the first two books were five stars for me and I recommend them This book takes us back to New York and all the family and friends that Elena hasn t seen since being Made I ve been eager to see the reaction to Elena s wings since the end of the first book, I strongly recommend not reading this review if you have not read the previous two books, Angels Blood and Archangel s Kiss It is impossible for me to write this review without including HUGE spoilers for the first book So, just know that the first two books were five stars for me and I recommend them This book takes us back to New York and all the family and friends that Elena hasn t seen since being Made I ve been eager to see the reaction to Elena s wings since the end of the first book, so this was pretty exciting for me Unfortunately for her, not everything goes smoothly, despite her new prestige Her family hasn t improved although we do see glimmers of possible better relations and not all her old acquaintances are pleased with her new status.I m very glad that the author hasn t made Elena s journey easy She doesn t automatically gain status because she s the consort of an Archangel If anything, she s scorned evenfor it She struggles to learn the rules of her new life and to find acceptance, even with Raphael s Seven Nothing comes easily for her She s used to being the baddest Hunter on the block, but now she finds herself back to square one She also struggles to master flying tricks and works to build muscle so she won t be so easily fatigued Seeing Elena work step by step to adjust to her new life makes any achievements all the sweeter for me.Elena continues to jockey with Raphael for cooperation and control Neither of them are really used to a partnership, and trust comes hard for them The love is there, but there are plenty of bumps along the path to happiness Elena and Raphael both slowly open themselves to each other and it s lovely watching them strengthen as a couple Raphael still has a hard time trusting himself with Elena when he s in a mood and trusting Elena to protect herself well enough to ensure nothing will happen to her But Elena values their relationship enough to keep working at it.We get some nice details about various members of the Seven here Before rereading the first two books right before I started this one I wasn t that interested in Venom I don t know what happened, but all of a sudden he drew my attention like a lodestone I really liked watching his fighting techniques and hope that we getof him soon Illium was someone I ve been interested in from the start I like his flirty, fun loving attitude, but it s also nice to see a littledepth too.I had heard that the next book focused on Dmitri before I reread the first two I paid particular attention to him looking for clues and thought that I had spotted his future love interest, but then I heard Singh had leaked that we hadn t met her yet So I suppose I spotted clues where there were none.Even though I enjoyed this book I didn t like it as much as the first two I had to take a while to let it stew after reading it to figure out why I wasn t as happy with it I m still not sure I ve totally figured it out Honestly, if I had read this book first I wouldn t have become obsessed with the series like I am now The relationship is still good, but it doesn t have the compelling factor going for it that I m used to seeing.I think one of the biggest problems with this book was the pacing It all felt a bit slow to me There was a lot of focus on Raphael and Elena which I definitely do want but it didn t feel like the quality time I was craving It just felt like they were rehashing things when I wanted new development That s not to say that it was unsatisfying though I still enjoyed them together, I just wish there had beenof a spark.The end fight was a pretty big letdown for me I wasn t displeased with the final resolution because I saw it coming early on but I did expectexcitement.Before ending this I do have to mention one thing We finally get to see Raphael teach Elena how Angels dance It definitely wasn t what I was expecting, but I liked it all the better for it.While this was my least favorite of the series I still think it was pretty good It also didn t hurt that there was an excerpt of Kiss of Snow at the end of it Read that at your own risk though, because I couldn t resist reading it and then I got bummed and crabby when I ran out of pages.Favorite Quote For the first time in forever, he was stunned to silence Not by her words, but by the tenderness in her hands, the worry in her eyes He was an archangel He d been wounded far, far worse and shrugged it off But then, there had been no woman with sun kissed by the sunset and eyes of storm gray to tear into him for daring to get himself hurt.Review originally posted at Fiction Vixen
