Recommended Reads: BANSHEE CHARMER

It’s a cold, blustery weekend here in Virginia with yet another round of wintry weather predicted for Monday. For those worried about being stuck at home with nothing to do, allow me to offer another Recommended Read. Today’s RR is one of my good friends, Tiffany Allee:

BANSHEE CHARMER

Mama mia, that's one sexy building in the background!
Mama mia, that’s one sexy building in the background!

The Basics: BANSHEE CHARMER, the first book of Tiffany’s Other World Enforcement Agency series, centers around Kiera “Mac” McLoughlin. A tough, savvy lady, Mac is called to investigate a murder where all evidence points to an Incubus. Since the species is supposedly extinct, this causes shockwaves throughout the paranormal community to the point where studly OWEA agent Aidan Byrnes gets involved. With Mac looking to work outside the law and Aidan carrying secrets of his own, tension (both sexual and plot-wise) builds to an explosive end.

Why You Should Read It: For starters, BANSHEE CHARMER is a great read. It’s fast and fun with a pair of excellent main characters. Mac is spicy and blunt while Aidan smooth and mysterious. What’s satisfying about the book, however, is that it introduces you to a very complex and rich world. One that Tiffany explores with each of her following novels. It’s especially enjoyable because, similar to Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshoot series, each book in the OWEA Files focuses on a “side character” from a previous one. The various points of view throughout the series provides a broad, deep trip through a unique universe.

BANSHEE CHARMER, and the rest of Tiffany’s works, is available on Amazon, B&N, and every other online book retailer.

Recommended Reading: KAT AND MOUSE, GUNS FOR HIRE

Sick of snow and need a mental holiday? Then allow me to recommend some great reads from my authorly friends. Today’s recommendation is for one of my author interviewees, Abner Senires:

KAT AND MOUSE: GUNS FOR HIRE.

KAT AND MOUSE
Pretty sexy cover, no?

The Basics: Kat and Mouse are a team of “independent contractors” working in a futuristic world where guns and money talk. Kat is quick on the trigger while Mouse is all about her pointy toys. This is the first “season” of Abner’s online series, so the chapters are formatted as episodes with an over-arching story arc weaved within them.

Why you should read it: I said it on the Amazon review and I’ll say it again here: this is Cyberpunk at its best. The characters are engaging and the action fast. Think of it as John Woo stuffed between two slices of Michael Bay, all of which is wrapped in hand-grenade-flavored bacon. It’s an easy, enjoyable read that leaves you wanting to know more about the girls, their cohorts, and the insane world Abner has built. Lucky for you, follow-on seasons are available on his website: http://www.katandmouseserial.com/p/previously-on-kat-and-mouse-guns-for.html.

KAT AND MOUSE: GUNS FOR HIRE is available at Amazon, B&N, and all other online book retailers.
