Review for Bitten by Paranormal Romance Enjoyable Paranormal Romance Read Mermen fascinate me and when I found out this was about mermen I had to read it The story was great the romance was sweet even though I wish the author would have had some erotica in there but the author s writing made up for it with her easy to read descriptions of the surroundings and the action that made you feel as though you were right there among the characters.Jenny human Fae and Perrin merman met once when th Review for Bitten by Paranormal Romance Enjoyable Paranormal Romance Read Mermen fascinate me and when I found out this was about mermen I had to read it The story was great the romance was sweet even though I wish the author would have had some erotica in there but the author s writing made up for it with her easy to read descriptions of the surroundings and the action that made you feel as though you were right there among the characters.Jenny human Fae and Perrin merman met once when they were 12 years old for a few moments on the beach and within those few moments, a d...

  4. 3.5 stars It s been way too long since the last Dirk Steele I love this series so I may have come into In the Dark of Dreams with overly inflated expectations Both of the leads, oceanologist Jenny and exiled merman Perrin, with their tragic pasts are appealing And I liked the idea of the psychic bond between them that developed when 1st they met on a beach as children, a bond which grew as they shared dreams for eight years before that dream connection was brutally severed But we 3.5 stars It s been way too long since the last Dirk Steele I love this series so I may have come into In the Dark...

  6. In the Dark of Dreams is the tenth book in the Dirk Steele series of paranormal romances by Marjorie M Liu Thankfully for this reviewer, who had not picked up a book in the series previously, it could be read standalone with very little difficulty I m sure some of the nuances and inside jokes and comments were lost on me because I didn t read the previous nine novels, but overall it didn t cramp my enjoyment one bit.There is a lot of subtext and hints at past books, but Liu kept the boo In the Dark of Dreams is the tenth book in the Dirk Steele series of paranormal romances by Marjorie M Liu Thankfully for this reviewer, who had not picked up a book in the serie...

  7. I m a big fan of this series which uses non traditional magical creatures By that I mean not the European tradition of vampires, werewolves and fae These are full of shapeshifters from other cultures, people with odd ball pyschic abilities, and in this one mer people.These two met in the prologue on a beach in Maine when they were about 12 years old They communicate through dreams for the next 8 years He is then exiled from the ocean and they can no longer contact each other in dreams She s I m a big fan of this series which uses non traditional magical creatures By that I mean not the European tradition of vampires, werewolves and fae These are full of shapeshifters from other cultures, people with odd ball pyschic abilities, and in this one mer people.These two met in the prologue on a beach in Maine when they were about 12 years old They communicate through dreams for the next 8 years He is then exiled from the ocean and they can no longer contact each other in dreams She spends her time looking for him mer people in the ocean while he is on land.This book was full of angst and romance He thinks he will be killed for going back to the ocean to save her when he inexplicably hears her again and she is in trouble He basically says words to the effect that if he can just live long enough to save her, his life will not have been in vain He is very self sacrificing The only part o...

  8. I just love the Dirk Steele novels No two novels are alike, as different characters are featured There are so many different supernatural people in these stories The main characters are a young woman, Jenny, who had found a young merboy on the beach of her family s home in Maine when she was only 12 and had never told anyone and Perrin, now grown, scarred and wounded, and exiled from the sea There was something that happened when the 2 met, even though they were separated, they starte I just love...
