Round 1: Funny Authors went to Molly Harper and her trapped naked man. In my opinion, those are the best kind of naked men. <g>

Goddess Dani, in defense of Katie MacAlister’s In the Company of Vampires
In the Company of Vampires is the latest of Katie MacAlister’s Dark Ones novels and she continues to deliver a sweet and easy-to-relate-to love story hidden beneath a hysterical plot. This particular book finds our heroine grappling with how to fall madly in love while retaining her own identity. Granted, she’s falling for a vampire, she’s the only one who can return his soul to him, and she’ll be bound to him for all eternity, but these are minor details right? Okay, so maybe not so easy to relate to…
But never fear! Our girl has support in the form of three very poorly-dressed vikings on furlough from Valhalla, who are not only there to help her vanquish a god, but to give advice on love and sex — loudly. Bless their hearts, the vikings are like human Golden Retrievers. Cute, fun to play with, and loyal, but not very bright and if let off their leash they’re likely to hump everything they come into contact with. Did I mention there’s a god to be vanquished and our girl Friday is the only one who can do it? Her mother is also missing, except she’s the only one who seems to think so. Add all these ingredients, stir, and viola! you have the perfect recipe for hijinx. Yeah I said it. Hijinx. Consider investing in some Poise pads before reading cause this book will have you peeing yourself with laughter.
Shirley, in defense of Angie Fox’s Last of the Demon Slayers
Hang on for another wild ride with Lizzie, the newbie demon slayer.
All Lizzie wants is a normal date with Dimitri, her hunky, loving griffin. But, as usual, fate throws obstacles in her path, from a dye-job gone wrong to a long-lost dad in danger of turning demon. Once again, Lizzie is determined to save those she loves and learns a lot about herself while doing it.
With a cast of crazy, but loving, characters, plus the darkest demon and his dregs, this story runs full throttle from start to finish. After all the fun and antics, there are serious moments that add a touch of reality not found in the earlier books.
Hot Griffin shifters, smart mouthed talking dogs, sassy and snarky witches with a penchant for blowing things up and a sexy and smart heroine who has had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at her….. who could ask for more?
Angie Fox’s Demon Slayer series just gets better and better. The Last of the Demon Slayers, the characters, the fun, the love – all grow with each new adventure. Be sure you do not miss any of it. Go pick up the whole set and be sure to read them in order.
