Book #101 was Night Pleasures, the 2nd of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter novels. The back of the book reads:
Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power? That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minutes of it. Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. Or in Amanda’s case, one buttoned all the way up to her chin. She’s smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal–in other words, me. My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist. Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there’s any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he’s not sure it will ever beat again.

Iâ€™m generally not much for romance, but I like the mythological/paranormal twist in these. Theyâ€™re pure fluff, and very formulaic (when you read a few in a row, itâ€™s easy to see that all the men and women act the same), but theyâ€™re fun enough to keep me reading.
(Yes, I did just use the same review for 3 books.)
