Who reads a book set on her new Nook in two days? This bitch.

So, it seems like forever ago that I got a really good deal on the Vampire Wardens box set from Lisa Renee Jones and then my Nook died. Well, it didn't die, die, but it needs a new battery and when I looked at the price I laughed a maniacal laugh and decided I would sell Matt's kidney if I had to so I could get a new  Nook.

And then as it turns out, Matt got me a new Nook HD tablet for Christmas and he still has both kidneys so yay! I can use a kidney for something else. But I immediately got into these books because they sounded good, looked like short reads, and I'm all about that right now.


So, I have only read the Vampire Wardens set, and I'll start the Werewolf Society one later. Oh, who am I kidding? I'll probably start it tonight. But here are my mini reviews for the first set.

Hot Vampire Kiss: The werewolf population is entrenched in a century long civil war, and now they are plagued by a virus that is turning wolves into killers. The Brooks brothers pursue one such rogue werewolf to Temple, Texas. It is in Temple that Evan encounters a beautiful nurse named Marissa who instantly melts the hundred years of ice running through his veins. When she is brutally attacked by the wolf, he breaks the rules of the Vampire Council and uses his blood to save her. Now, if he doesn’t kill the wolf by the next full moon, Marissa will become a killer wolf, and he will be sentenced to death.

Hot Vampire Seduction: The underground vampire population of Austin, Texas has taken to hosting orgies with human women who’ve been forced to indulge in a new aphrodisiac.The drug, Blood Red, is a mixture of a rare type of werewolf blood and that of a vampire. Blood Red creates an insatiable desire for sex in the user to the point of pain in the absence of pleasure. Sometimes that pain leads to death.
Vampire Warden, Aiden Brooks, has spent more than a hundred years enforcing the laws of his race, and life has taught him that anyone that he allows into his world ends up dead. Despite knowing this all too well, having painfully loved and lost in his past, when his search for the creator of Blood Red places coroner Kelly Riggs directly in both his path, and that of a dangerous clan of vampires, his desire for her goes well beyond offering her protection. He’s drawn to her bravery, seduced by her feisty spirit and beauty, but he is determined to resist her, fearing he will put her in harms way. But Kelly is already on the radar of the enemy, and when she gets too close to the evil vampire clan’s secrets, she is given Blood Red. Now Aiden’s hunger for her might be the only thing that can keep her alive but who will save her from him?

Hot Vampire Touch: In blood they will find destiny and the eternal bond of passion…
A Vampire Warden betrayed by a werewolf he loved, turned into something not Vampire or Wolf. The woman – the wolf – who will heal him…if he doesn't destroy them both first.

OK, so each book centers around one of three brothers who were turned into vampires against their will but have become vampire wardens. Evan, Aiden, and Troy (in order). I should also tell you that each book stands alone, you don't have to read them in order, but I really think it's better if you do. Every story kind of rolls into the next and the larger story forms and you really get into them. They are fast reads and they are all super good romance stories with the paranormal aspect to them that you know I like. All three of them have suspense and each book gives you hints on what to expect in the next one and that will keep you reading through the night while your husband snores next to you. 

I have read a few books by Lisa Renee Jones now and I really like her. You can rely on her to give you an intriguing story with a little suspense, but really great romance and sex scenes. The sex scene towards the end of Hot Vampire Seduction is hands down, the most peculiar circumstances around a scene that I have ever read. Seriously. You should read it just to see what I'm talking about. 

Overall I really liked them. I liked all three main characters with their flaws and warped guy thinking and the women that ultimately change them. I liked all of the characters and you know I'm picky about my characters. So if you are looking for a good ebook set for your new reader, pick this one up. They are fast reads that will keep you entertained.
