Nyla is the Queen of Paqualette and she is expected to dedicate her life to the realm.  No husband or human lover means a very lonely existence for her. Until her guard catch a pack of werewolves on her lands. She is allowed a Were as her sex slave, so she goes to the dungeons to inspect the pack and see if one would suit her needs. There she finds Mace. Even under the filth he is something to behold. But is he more than she can handle?

An interesting mix of fantasy and paranormal seasoned with erotica this is one delicious story. I wasn’t very impressed with Nyla at first and I think she’s the weakest character in the story, but she kinda grew on me. The rest of the characters are great though and while the story isn't long enough to really have a chance to develop there is enough here to sink my teeth into.  Oh, and mustn’t forget the steamy bits. Very nom! Especially the ménage. I was skeptical of that scene because of how very Alpha Mace is, but it was well done. I would love to know more about this world and the people who inhabit it, but in the meantime I’ll replay some of those scenes in my head and smile a naughty smile.

Smella Rosepetal’s baby needs an expensive heart transplant, so Smella heads to Pitchforks, Texas where her father lives in the hopes of roping a millionaire husband. She meets up with her childhood friend Snake Long and meets the weird yet rich Deadward Forest. Deadward has money and Snake doesn’t so guess who Smella falls in love with? While trying to get Deadward to come up to scratch Smella has to deal with a serial killer, vampires, Flabio and other weird inhabitants of Pitchforks. Will she get the money in time? Will she get whacked by a serial killer? Will Deadward’s Smart Car fail an emissions test? Stay tuned!

I really don’t read enough parodies. I know I’m going against the majority, but I hate the Twilight series. So when an opportunity to review a Twilight parody came along I was more than happy to read it. It’s ridiculous and thus highly amusing. I think a person has to have the right sense of humor to appreciate a good parody. This one produces a bit too much eye rolling from me, but it’s still funny and Smella is such a twat. Funny how she and Bella are so similar and yet Smella seems like she has more gumption. If you want a couple hours of entertainment and don’t mind a book poking a very large pointy stick at Twilight then be sure to pick this one up.


  1. OMG I'm lmao at that second cover! I actually loved Twilight (which is probably against the majority in the book world) but I see its flaws and am not above poking fun :)

    1. This cover is much funnier than the original. LOL I seriously need to work more parodies into my reading schedule. They're so much fun. :D

  2. Smella ?!!! LMAO !!! And that cover, priceless !

    1. Ikr! LOL It poked at Twilight, but it also poked at romance a bit, too. It was funny. :D

  3. Oh, I happen to have Wereslave in my archives. I may have to pull it up and read it. :D

    1. Ooooh! Do so! :D I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
