A Tale of Two Goblins Book Cover

A Dreamstalker— a creature that stalks and kills its victims in sleep.
A fairy in law enforcement determined to stop him.
A potions smuggler who possesses something she wants.
A vampire with his own agenda.
And a partner who couldn’t possibly be sexier or more frustrating.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy working in law enforcement for the Netherworld. When Knight Vander approaches her with a case regarding comatose victims, she agrees to help him, imagining the most difficult part will be combatting her attraction to him.

But, what Dulcie isn’t betting on is the fact that the case becomes personal when she learns all the victims are somehow linked to her.

When her best friend falls victim to the Dreamstalker, Dulcie must do everything in her power to ensure her friend’s survival, including associating with criminals and accepting the fact that desperate times do definitely call for desperate measures.

My Review:

This is the second in Mallory's Dulcie O'Neil series with vampires, werewolves, goblins, loki, witches, fairies, elves populating the streets of Splendor, CA along with the humans and a new threat causing people from Dulcie's past and present to fall into a coma for days before dying.

The chemistry between Dulcie and the three males who want her is off the charts. Bram, Knight, Sam, Trey are back helping Dulcie with this latest case. Quill even makes an appearance.

Bram is celebrating his 300th birthday as a vampire and is even more gorgeous than even and more enamored with Dulcie.

Knight, still his uber sexy and delicious self, is back to drag Dulcie into an ANC case and torment her with all his flirtations.

Quill, still his paranormal romance book cover sensual self, comes to Dulcie's rescue when she needs some not so legal help and when he thinks she needs assistance in a fight.

Enter Dia, a sleep goblin and Chief of nearby Moon ANC precinct to lend her help with the case as well.

Once again, even though the sexual tension is high, there is more talk than action in that area. In my humble opinion, Dulcie needs to give in and get her a little sumthin' sumthin' with at least one, if not all, of these three hunks she has panting after her.

Okay, so this is not strictly a paranormal romance anymore since, according to the authors who participated in the Is it Paranormal Romance or Urban Fantasy event here last month since it doesn't meet the requirement of a couple getting together and staying together in a single book. However, it has lots of humor, sexual chemistry, romance (in its way), studly gorgeous males and who cares if Dulcie hasn't made up her mind yet and we need to read more fun to find out? We get more of the characters this way.

This was another fun read. Can't wait for the next book in the series.



  1. Wild about bones- Yep! urban fantasy in my book LOL..

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
