Blog Tour: Paranormal Pleasures II by Roxanne Rhoads

I received a copy of Paranormal Pleasures II in exchange for my review. Paranormal Pleasures II is a collection of 10 supernatural and erotic stories, 4 of which have never previously been published, the other 6 have been newly edited for the collection.

Stories:
- Scent of a Vampire
- Immortal Flame
- An Unexpected Evening
- Underneath the Fangs
- Cemetery Seduction
- No Place I'd Rather Be
- Blood, Lust and Shadows
- Complete Circle
- A Package Deal
- My Demon Valentine

Firstly, I would like note that three of the stories in this collection have been previously read and reviewed (An Unexpected Evening, No Place I'd Rather Be and Complete Circle). Reading through the stories I remembered No Place I'd Rather Be and Complete Circle straight off, though that was not the case with An Unexpected Evening which I think I enjoyed more the second time around.

One of the things that I particularly liked about An Unexpected Evening was how it linked with two of the other stories in the collection, Underneath the Fangs dealt with the same characters and added much more depth to their story, even going as far as introducing a third character in a none sexual situation. That third character was also the link to My Demon Valentine, which also developed further on the plot line than the sex between the two leads. I must admit, I am particularly intrigued by the town of Flint.

As I just mentioned, I particularly enjoyed the links between the stories, and this was also the case between all of the stories in a way. Rhoads paranormal worlds all seem to be the 'same', and what I mean by that is that the paranormal characters in each story have to adhere to the same paranormal rules (i.e. how vampires have to drink, who witches can marry, etc.). This means that each story adds a little onto the lore surrounding her universe.

I thought that it was very interesting to see how 'halfs' were perceived in Rhoads story. In this collection there was a half succubus/half vampire (Blood, Lust and Shadows) and a half witch/half vampire (Cemetery Seduction). Again this added to the world that Rhoads created.

Though Paranormal Pleasures II is a collection of 10 short stories, the links between them really build up a picture of the universe in which the characters live (and love!). If you're looking for some short and erotic paranormal stories then you should check this out!

Immortal Flame

An off duty fire fighter encounters a sexy vampire in what he thought was an abandoned house.

The flames that ignite will leave them both scorched…and aching for more.

An Unexpected Evening

Samuel is a centuries-old vampire who prefers to be a recluse. He is always afraid of losing control and becoming the monster he once was. Falling in love with a young witch has pushed his boundaries and pulled him out of his comfort zone.

Katerina always encourages Samuel to be more open, to let loose, and to really "live" instead of only existing in the shadows.

One night, he finally grants her wish . . . in ways she never imagined.

Underneath the Fangs

Samuel is being framed for murder. Katerina knows he is not guilty but she has to convince Samuel that he is not a monster and that he is worthy of her love.

Cemetery Seduction

Abby, a half witch, half vampire whose powers go awry in a club, has to run, afraid that the Others, who are policing all human/magick interaction, might put her in jail. She ends up in a cemetery, jumps behind a bush and lands right on top of a very sexy ghost hunter.

No Place I'd Rather Be

Sonora is torn between a human and a vampire. How can she choose between the man who makes her feel safe and the vampire that makes her blood race? Sonora prays to the Goddess for guidance while harboring secret desires that her broody vampire, Brom, and her brawny human, Avery, can get past their jealousy and be willing to do more than just share the witch in the middle.

Can the Goddess grant Sonora's wish, or will she be stuck making an impossible choice?

Contains m/f/m and m/m

Blood, Lust and Shadows

Vampire/succubus hybrid Allana is on the prowl looking for a bloody snack and a sexy energy boost. While strutting her stuff in a dark parking lot she encounters a yummy Latino who makes a lovely meal. She also encounters something else that puts her senses into overdrive.

Complete Circle

Lissette is a vampire who has lived with her succubus girlfriend, Cassandra, for a long time. She swore off relationships with men after being viciously raped by the vampire hunters who killed the love of her life and left her for dead.

Lissette and Cassandra only use men to get what they need, blood for Lissette and sexual energy for Cassandra. They are completely satisfied with their lives- until a mysterious stranger comes along.

For the first time in centuries Lissette wants a man. Why is she so drawn to him? What is he?

Much more than a mere mortal, Gabriel has been searching for Lissette and Cassandra for a very long time. They have what he needs, what no one else can give him.

But will they be willing to share?
