Murder On Mysteria Lane by Angie Fox

When a werewolf trophy wife is found dead in Vampire County, Heather McPhee goes undercover to investigate. Heather’s never been a mascara-and-manicures sort of girl, but she’s willing to learn. Especially with sexy vampire detective Lucien Mead posing as her husband. . .

What’s Yours Is Mine by Jess Haines

Still Waters is like many other exclusive gated communities–except that it’s home to one of the largest werewolf packs in the state. But Tiffany Winters isn’t frightened of her big, bad new neighbors. In fact, she intends to take her place among the pack. . .

Werewolves In Chic Clothing by Tami Dane

This book has four anthologies in it. It’s theme is The Stepford Wives or Wives of Orange County, which is a bunch of rich women who think they are all that and that they must have the latest fashion.

As for The Real Werewives of Vampire County, to me it is not worth buying. I suggest borrowing from the library if you want to try it out. I only picked this one up for Alexandra Ivy’s novella, since I’m enjoy her Guardians of Eternity series. I did try to read the others and you can see my individual reviews below.

Where Darkness Lives (Guardians of Eternity #8.5) By Alexandra Ivy

~ 3 Stars ~

This one was about Sophia, the mother to the four werewolf daughters in the series. Sophia, I have never been a fan of. She is a total bitch and drop dead gorgeous, though the author did try to give her a more softer side and explain why she is such a bitch. Luc, is a purebred werewolf as well, drop dead sexy, and alpha to the core. These two have an instant attraction and with the werewolf magic coming back and mates being found it works. They don’t give in, but fight the attraction until they both combust with some intense sexual encounters. Their is also a mystery and I did not see who the bad guy was until it happened. 

Where Darkness Lives is a good read.

Murder on Mysteria Lane By Angie Fox

~ 3 Stars ~

I was a little confused at the begging on what was happening, but soon figured it out. We get a verity of supernatural creatures from vampires to a verity of shifters. This one is a murder mystery with a werewolf who does not fit in with her pack, but has a very rear ability that is needed. She ends up having to team up with a Vampire to find the murder and they uncover something deeper and more sinister going on. It’s got the Wives of Orange County thing going. The relationship was interesting and we get a few hot and heavy scenes. 

Murder on Mysteria Lane was a good read. 

Werewolves in Chic Clothing By Tami Dane

~ DNF ~

I ended up DNF this one at Chapter 4. I could not figure out what was going on nor could I get into the story. Felt no connection to the characters or plot. 

What’s Yours Is Mine By Jess Haines

~ 2 Stars ~

This one is more urban fantasy and has no romance. It’s a women with a past looking to secure an advantage for her future, but it does not turn out as she hoped. We get rich and catty house wives, who are werewolves. I really should have DNF this one too. It just did not work for me.

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!
