Genre: Paranormal Romance
Tara Walker dreams of more excitement than slinging plates of seafood for Cape Cod tourists, but as she learns when she is attacked and forced to fight for her life, fate sometimes has a funny way of giving you exactly what you wish for. Faced with strange new powers and embroiled in a murder investigation, Tara must now race to uncover the secrets of the ancient Fury that has woken inside of her – and of the evil that stalks her.
As if Tara’s life hasn’t gotten complicated enough, she is forced to ally herself with Jackson Byrne, witness to her assault and uncle to a pint-sized oracle whose fate is intertwined with hers. Skeptical, stubborn, and oh-so-sexy, Jackson wrestles with demons of his own. He is determined to ignore the attraction rising between them even faster than the body count, but like it or not, he and Tara need each other if they are to unravel the mysteries that surround them.
What I liked about this book was that it strayed from the norm when it comes to paranormal. Usually you hear about vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters. This one is steeped in Greek mythology. And it is so different! Not an expert on Greek mythology? That’s ok, this book will that you n explain everything to you that you need to know. The secondary characters are a huge part of the story.Everyone is intricately woven together somehow. Especially Jackson. Oh Jackson!
Tara as a whole is an interesting character. At times I was thinking, why, oh why, but then I remembered, she IS only 22. Her Fury, LOVED! Nicola did an excellent job at separating Tara from her Fury. Ruby was one of my favorites. I knew there was something to her the moment she entered the story. The banter between Tara and her two friends was hilarious at times. Nilcola captured their relationship very well.
Overall I give Fury’s Kiss 4 kisses. If you love paranormal but are looking for something a bit different this is your book. A good solid start to what I really think is going to be a series that sets itself apart in the paranormal subgenre.
Nicola R. White is no stranger to the fantastic. Although there are no Furies in her family tree (that she knows of), she comes from a small city on the east coast of Canada where ghost stories and superstitions abound. She has worked on movie sets, as a bartender, in a lighthouse, and as a lawyer, and though she’s never been an exotic dancer like her character, Alex Hughes, she does know how to pole dance.
She has always been fascinated by the strange and morbid, and often stays up too late reading books that give her nightmares. She believes truth is stranger than fiction, and just a few of her heroes are Buffy, Dana Scully, and Xena.
Nicola is a member of Romance Writers of America and Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, and is an active member and supporter of the award-winning Romance Divas website and online forum.
