Her relationships with the men in this story were dark, tangled, and unsettling.
Now Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, and Lori Handeland -- four of the very best writers currently exploring the dangerous seduction of the supernatural -- offer up dating disasters (and unexpected delights) of a completely different sort: dark, wicked, paranormally sensual assignations with werewolves, demon lovers, and the romantically challenged undead.
Phoebe works as a psychic at a hotel to help others and make money for Prue's birthday present, the ghost of a recently murdered man who needs help finds she can see him there.
Kim Harrison is one heck of a writer and she pulls you into the stories that she spins. Four stars for the quality of the story, even though this one disturbed me.
I'm not into dark and sexual so much, and this story has that edge to it, hence I was a bit turned off. Attempt #2 Went much better as I finished the Lynsay Sands story.
She's on a mundane date (but on the lookout for anything unusual) and she ends up catching jewel-thief and somewhat rogue werewolf, Karl.
