is great this book was no xception we great This book was no xception We to see all the previously mentioned characters draw together to fight the ultimate battle against the Heirs It was really nice getting to see the previous heroes and heroines and reaffirm that they are happy togetherCatullus is the one constant character through all the books in this series He is a brilliant particular man that caught my interest from the very first meet I ve been really looking forward to his book and am glad that I finally got to get a closer look at his personality I only wish that I had gotten to see of the person he was described as being dedicated inventor with a hard time staying interested in people before his mind wandered back to an invention instead of just being told about it He really seemed stunningly normal here when you look at his actions and ignore what we re told about him I don t know what changed between the first two books and the last two books but something did The first two books were xcellent but the last two books were increasingly Less Interesting For Me I interesting for me I had to take a couple week break in the middle of this one in the hopes that absence would make the heart grow fonder Luckily it did so it nded up being average instead of a complete disappointmentOne thing that has really bothered me is the way the supernatural part developed I absolutely loved it in the first two books but then the third book confused me by branching out into shapeshifters And then this one completely blew me out of the water by including the mythical Arthur and the Fae It just got too weird for me It s not my series so obviously the author can do what she wants but as the reader I got a certain impression of what this series would be like in terms of magic from the first two books and I had a hard time adjusting when that changed I don t know why some magic was believable for me and some wasn t but I really had a hard time Nighttime Sweethearts enjoying the direction this book tookAdded to my lack of interest in the plot this time around I really had a hard time caring about Catullus and Gemma once they got together I don t reuire a tempestuous relationship by any means but they were both a little too sweet and pleasant to keep my attention One of my friends used the term Disneysue to describe part of the relationship in the last book and that seems apt here too They were just too sweet and too good and too accepting of Maternity Bride (Silhouette Desire each other for me to care at all I didn t dislike them but I didn t find them interesting at allThe author s skill with detail and plotting was still there but without a story I cared about it was really hard for me to work my way through this book Injoyed seeing the Heirs finally confronted on a large scale and loved seeing previous characters that I Safe in My Arms enjoyed but I was rather disappointed on the whole I also was incredibly irritated by the convenient way view spoilerGemma was able to share magic with Catullus hide spoiler Overall I thought it wasnjoyable but I did start to struggle at around the halfway mark I d give it a 35 to 4 stars I really missed the balance of reality vs paranormal that the other books had This one was pure over the top fantasy world like Alice in Wonderland or something along the lines of an acid trip ie16 feet tall imaginary historical characters coming to life Nothing felt real T conspirators she's sensing a scoop Especially when he mentions there's magic involved Of course getting him on the record would be Presunta colpevole easier if he hadn't caught heravesdroppingLighting His FuseCatullus Graves knows what it's like to be shut out his ancestors were slaves And he's a genius inventor with appropriately Poisoned Secrets (Murder and Mayhem eccentric habits soven. ,

Bout this story so it wasn t what I was Once Upon a Seduction (Its All About Attitude expecting or hoping Also didn t really love the relationship between Catullus and Gemma A bit too syrupy sweet And for three books now we hear all about his great inventions skill so you would think we would see a lot of that in his book But not much A battle scenearly in the book implies his ingenuity but we don t see much lse Still the series rocked as a whole and I am a solid fan of Zoe
Archer This one was a little disappointing to me after the fabulous This one was a little disappointing to me after the fabulous books before it Having said that there were some things I really really liked about it and I appreciate that the last in a series is sometimes very difficult to writeSome things I really liked about this one The hero and heroine are both great really great All the heroes and heroines in this series have been xcellent and these two are no different Neither of them is one dimensional and the hero in particular is complex than most of the other heroes in the series He s a scientist an inventor and an introvert He s not used to blowing his own trumpet and I get the impression that he feels a bit past it at 41 The heroine is a journalist from Chicago of ItalianIrish ancestry and used to fighting for what she wants I liked the progression of the hero and heroine s relationship from total lust to deep love It just seems so real and although it happens uickly it feels right I loved the way the story leapt straight on from the previous book seamlessly I loved the length Although the pace dropped off in the middle for me the length allows the story to be given justice and the writing to really flowSome things I didn
#t like so #like so The magic bit in the middle just didn t work well for me There were too many pixies My Guilty Pleasure (Harlequin Blaze etc and it made me think of bad set moments from The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland NOT my favorite movie I would have preferred for something much darker unnerving and scary It felt a bit like a wasted opportunity The involvement of the Heirs was minimal I would have preferred something all the previous books in the series were stamped heavily with the Heirs as really nasty villains and it felt in this one that the whole story was missing thatlement a bit It was all a bit on the nice side Although the heroine s career was touched on I felt that the author could have taken this a bit further It is a fascinating theme the first woman in a tough career in a tough citySo in all not the best of these series but still very Fatal Secrets (Protecting the Witnesses enjoyable35 stars but I bumped it up because Catullus is so great There is a heroine in this novel Her name is Gemma That is all I m going to say about her Not that she s not a nice person but really who really cares about her when Cattulus Graves is around I mean reallyI don t get it when my on line book buddies start talking about how much they love this hero or that hero I think they need to get a freakin life Once I hit my later teens I was never one to go gaga over movie stars music stars or the like maybe because I knew it was all a fa ade If I was going to be in love I wanted to know the real person So I was above that groupie mentality When I see the ladies on line talking about books boyfriends I roll myyes and move on A Wanted Man (Silhouette Intimate Moments, especially when I read the book and discover that the hero that they re going gaga over acts like a total boneheadThen I met Cattulus Graves Even though he s been around since the fi.
