The Addicts Best of 2010 list


This year has come to an end my dears and though Paranormal Romance Addict has only seen a few weeks in 2010 this Addict has been reading paranormal romance for quiet some time! So I have developed a list to share with you all of my PR favorites in 2010.

Favorite Series: Demonica Series by Larissa Ione
This is a five loveys series!

Favorite Author: Jeanie Frost
Since the start of her Night Huntress series dears. 

Favorite Book: The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook
I know darling, not technically PR but it does have lots of romance and zombies!

Favorite Hero: Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
His Character just keeps getting deeper and deeper with each new novel.

Favorite Heroine: This was a hard one.
Kira from Jeaniene Frost's Eternal Kiss of Darkness

Joy Randall's Top 5 Tips for Vampire Hunters:

  1. Location, location, location. Vampires won't be caught dead (ha!) in places like discos, ten-minute lube shops, or Switzerland. Remember, if you wouldn't be there, neither would a bloodsucker.
  2. Trust your eyes. You know the handsome, annoyingly arrogant, self-assured man in the shadows with long hair and a cleft in his chin? He's your vampire.
  3. No matter how tempting it might be, do not "accidentally" acquire a paper cut on your finger and suggest your vampire kiss it to make it better.
  4. Play it cool. Don't offer to accompany your prince of the night on the talk-show circuit, and whatever you do, don't offer him your heart!
  5. Most of all, remember: being a vampire is nothing to laugh about.

His Darkest Embrace by Juliana Stone

Jaguar Warriors #2
by Juliana Stone

A solitary hunter with no regard for the human world, Jagger Castille is a shifter living on the edge. A woman who calls him enemy will give him reason to live . . .
Jagger is a creature of the night—Skye Knightly soars in the sun. Natural adversaries, they are now joined in a mission entrusted to Skye's family centuries ago: nothing less than the salvation of the Earth.
Wounded and bitter, Jagger sought escape in the solitude of the jungle, driven by a need to disappear forever . . . until a mysterious shifter who calls to his soul and feeds a yearning long forgotten pulls him from his dark path. A courageous warrior, Skye's passion is equal to Jagger's—but can she trust a man whose secrets are as devastating as her own?
Each is the other's sole hope for survival. But a dark and twisted truth is leading them toward the ultimate sacrifice for a love they may never live to claim.

4 Loveys

His Darkest Embrace follows a few months after where His Darkest Hunger left off and is a great read with the youngest Castille brother. Jagger is a dark and intense shifter wanting to escape the horrors of the real world and delve into his jaguar soul until he meets the proud and secretive Skye . They have a instant and powerful physical attraction but a difficult chemistry. Jagger is suspicious of Skye but refuses to let her go and will track her to the ends of the jungle. Skye has important responsibilities to her clan and the world, being with the enemy jaguar is not part of her plan. 
The story-line is well paced, a definite page turner, and ends with a bit of a cliff hanger so that I'm itching for Julian's book up next. Chuck full of suspense, mystery, action, deceit and steamy love scenes in the wilds of the jungle this is a good continuation in the Jaguar Warriors series.

His Darkest Hunger by Juliana Stone

Jaguar Warriors
by Juliana Stone

Jaxon Castille: jaguar shifter, warrior, assassin. He has long hungered for the chance to make his former lover, Libby Jamieson, pay for her deadly betrayal. After three long years he's finally found her. The hunt is over . . .
But the Libby that he finds is not what he expected. She has no memory of their tumultuous affair, of her treachery, of anything beyond her own name. A shadowy and deadly clan has marked them both for death, and in an instant, he game changes: the hunter has become the hunted.
On the run, with the ghosts of their past between them and a dark, desperate hunger quickly reclaiming their bodies and souls, Libby and Jaxon must discover the truth behind the dark forces working against them. Together, they must grab hold of a destiny that has the power to either heal them or destroy them.
But the truth is far more shattering than anyone could imagine . . .

5 Loveys

Juliana Stone's debut into the paranormal world of shifters, vampires, warlocks and exceptional humans is an exciting ride from start to finish, you will literally be hungering for more after finishing this exceptional novel. Dark & sexy, total alpha Jaxon's encounters with the strong and independent Libby will have you panting for sure. Deception, revenge, mystery, action and forgiveness are the perfect spices to add to this phenomenal paranormal romance. And you can't forget the animal heat and magnetism, delish!

Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione

Demonica Series, book 3
By Larissa Ione

Forbidden Temptations…
Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter—and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she’s been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn’t all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she’s finally met the one man she cannot resist.
Fatal Desires…
Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe—her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions, and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: he’s falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.
5 Loveys
The sensational drama continues in this third instalment of the Demonica series. I can't get enough of these seminus brothers from the UGH but bad boy Wraith is definitely a favorite. Depth and emotional is etched into his character in this novel and you can't help but fall for the half demon half vampire with the hard exterior and chenille soft heart. And his leading lady is just as likable, you'll root for her from the sidelines and envy her steamy encounters with Wraith. Throw in some betrayal, intrigue, charmed chastity and an epic battle of good versus evil and you have yourself a new addiction right here.

Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

Demonica Book 2 (formerly titled SHADOW LOVER)
By Larissa Ione
Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts—or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.
5 Loveys
Desire Unchained continues with Larissa Ione's heart pounding Demonica series and is just as good as her debut in it. An emotional roller coaster that you will want to ride again and again, this novel is raw and addictive. A fast moving plot with gut wrenching twists and scorching love scenes I am looking forward to many more novels in this series.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

Demonica series #1
by Larissa Ione

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . ..
She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul...

5 Loveys
A dark and sexy novel that stands apart from all the others in the paranormal romance field. I was instantly drawn in by the characters and captivated by the world built around them. This has everything I love in a paranormal romance; sexy alpha males, kick-ass heroines, smokin' love scenes and action & suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Looking forward to the rest of the series!
