The Raven Prince

The Raven Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt
I enjoyed this book and thought it was a fun historical to read. I am not a huge historical fan, I usually read them for a change of pace and this one was a nice change.

Edward de Raaf, the Earl of Swartingham unknoingly hires local village widow Anna Wren to be his secretary after all his secretaries seem to leave abuptly after being in his service only a short time. He is a demanding person, but Anna takes it in stride. He is attracted to her, but is trying to deny that attraction.

Jacob: The NightwalkersJacob (Book 1 of The Nightwalkers) by Jacquelyn Frank

This was an interesting change for the paranormals, the hero is a demon and so now we get a look into her demon culture instead of the typical vamps or weres. The book was pretty good, I enjoyed reading it. The heroine got on my nerves a couple of times, but I stuck it out and enjoyed it on the whole. The world Ms Frank has created is an interesting one and one that has a lot of potential for more stories.

Jacob is the Demon Enforcer for his people. That means that he keeps his people from harming humans. Demons are tossed into a wierd madness at the time of the full moon that tempts them to mate with humans and that is forbidden. Then Jacob saves Isabella one night and cannot let her go. She is a human and it is forbidden, but Jacob has an insatiable need to be with her. So Isabella (librarian by profession) does a little digging and finds out some interesting stuff about their history.

I really liked Jacob, too. The twist on "demons" was great, IMO. The heroine did have a few TSTL moments, but I found myself enjoying it as a whole.
