Now, I think this book has taken on a completely new theme. How many men can Mona Lisa sleep with in each book?

I am saying this woman is open like a 7/11, coming from the same woman who preached humanity with “I was raised human soooooo… I can only have one lover”. Girl you preaching to the wrong church. A quick run down, this series is about the Monere children. A world filled with inhuman beings who gather strength from the light of the moon, and they are very matriarchal society. The female run things in this series. So Mona Lisa aka (Mona Loose Legs) was raised human only to later find out she is a queen of the monere and one of the strongest of her people. She gets two lovers, has some run in with an evil bitch and the beat goes on. In this book, our Mona Lisa has come a long way, her life is still in upheaval and she mourning the death of a lover and my fave character. She has brand new beau who she desires and fears. It seems that they share a past, a very scary one. So that makes it guy number 175 (not the actual amount just my exaggerated estimate). She is mated to the Prince of hell, a man I personally want to get naked with. Just a whole bunch of things, which I hardly cared about. Yet, I did enjoy reading the book; maybe it’s my morbid fascination to see who will next enter the Mona Lisa passage of love. Where as I loved the first book, this one just seemed like half the unique essence that was book one flew away. I really do think that this book offers up a unique concept in the PNR genre, it’s erotic and sexy. Just seems Mona needs to close those legs up a bit, its getting somewhat old. I have the next book in the series, and I hope it brings back the excitement that the two previous books offered.

    Mona Lisa returns to her people from her high council meeting with new discoveries of herself and what she is becoming. After finally starting to come to terms with that, she, in true Mona Lisa form, finds more trouble...or, should I say, trouble finds her. This is where Dante is introduced into the story. Apparently, they have a past that she isn't able to remember. But it's a disturbing one that leads to more drama, and love, and pain, and hope. Mona Lisa Craving is my unexpected shocker of the Mona Lisa returns to her people from her high council meeting with new discoveries of herself and what she is becoming.

Apparently, they have a past that she isn't able to remember. But it's a disturbing one that leads to more drama, and love, and pain, and hope. Mona Lisa Craving is my unexpected shocker of the year. It took me completely by surprise. I picked it up thinking that it was going to be the final straw in this series, where I finally give up on it and move on. WRONG! This one seems to be Sunny's redemption in my eyes. Even though I was already addicted to this series, I was beginning to doubt the reasoning behind my addiction. Until this book. I never thought that I would give 5 stars to one of the books in this series. I absolutely ADORE Dante! At some parts I hated him, but it only added to the multiple facets of his character. Stand back Halcyon! There's a new warrior in town! And he's amazing! Also, she added a little more dimension to the story. Yes, it had the Sunny trademark "pearl- sheath- budding flower-and-turgic stalk" sex scenes. But it went beyond just the sex this time. I actually cared what happened, which is a rapid turn-around from the last book. Mona Lisa Darkening is sitting on my bookshelf. And I'm hoping, beyond all hope, that she can keep this up. Because it's been bumped up on my TBR pile.

    I was pulled to this series because it was dark and erotic. But I feel that it has become too much. The darkness has taken over and there is no joy. Just one sex scene followed by more violence, then another sex scene. Or another kidnapping. I have lost count of how many time Mona Lisa has been takken against her will. I was so sad after Mona Lisa's lover was killed in Mona Lisa Blossoming, that I took a break from the series.

I understand the series is dark, but there is only so much I can take. I have the next 2 books in hand and am not interested in reading them. I feel it is wrong to complain about the one thing that I was compelled by in book one. But you know what they say about too much of the same thing. I hope that Mona Lisa can find some happiness, but I'm not sure if Sunny is capable of giving it to her.

    This third book was much more exciting than the previous two, because of one thing: Dante. Once he came on the scene (which was early on, thankfully), things really heated up and got interesting. Mona Lisa was a bit annoying in this one, because I cared about her decisions more and she wasn't making good ones. Her character got sidelined, in a way - with a strong, Alpha male (as Laura would say) around, she seemed to become a bit more vulnerable and less resourceful.

    This was another winner in the Novel of the Monere series. We are introduced to another character, Dante, and I wasn't sure about him but...can't say more...Mona Lisa is just as remarkable as in the previous books...this one won't disappoint...go for it...I know you'll it. I love this series so much that I go to bed thinking about Mona Lisa and waking up thinking about her and men. Highly recommend. This was another winner in the Novel of the Monere series.

    A quick read but still drew me in immediately and I was sad to see how fast it was all over. I wanted more immediately. This series, while different, is definitely a fun raunchy read that keeps you interested in not just the sex but the story.

    Felt a bit like drudging through most of the book because the protagonist and her main conflict's personalities began to annoy me. The end managed to catch me off guard though, so it was redeemed somewhat.

    This book bored me. I've had the same problem with other series. It's a problem with the constant leveling up of the main character until finally she's too powerful to be believed so she becomes boring because only her own stupidity is a challenge. I also don't like the constant theme of rape turning sexy. I have one more book to read (I paid for it already!) but I'm really not holding out much hope. This book bored me.

    Well that was unexpected. First of all I must have missed some reading material cause I totally missed the backstage with Dontaine at the beginning. I really like the Prince. Dante on the other hand has absolutely no reason to behave like the caveman he is. I get his rage at the end, but before that, history or not, past lives or not, at the moment he's just a 20year old kid. Well that was unexpected.

    Love this series! It's just too bad that the author has discontinued being a writer, so the series was left hanging. I was rather upset that one of the male love interest got killed. Good thing he didn't stay dead for long, though! The last arch of the series was fantastic! Note: I read all 5 books in one go. Love this series!

    Okay, I wasn't going to read anymore of this series *lowers head in shame*, but kept wondering what happened and curiosity got the better of me. This is actually my favorite book of this series.

This is actually my favorite book of this series. Mona Lisa did get captured again but at least she wasn't chained naked anywhere. I still don't recommend this for someone who loves a true romance. This lady has multiple partners, although not all at the same time(but has several at any given period of time). Was worried where the story line was going with her brother, but luckily everything was pretty tame there. Hardly mentioned him. So this deals with the Monere's which are a race originally from another planet that was destroyed. Mona Lisa is 1/4 human and a Queen, hence the Mona part of her name. All queens prefix their given name with Mona. In this society woman, I should clarify, Queens rule. Power is passed between Queens and their consorts when coupling takes place. Hence, when Mona Lisa's brother looks to be the first man in the history of the race to hold the same Power as a Queen (Queens somehow convert the moon's power to their people at certain phases of the Moon's cycle and they are the only ones who can exchange powers between themselves and their consorts) I got a little nervous about what the author had planned for him. Some of the powers include walking out in the sun, which the race usually can't, healing, summoning weapons to oneself, etc. Also, some of the people have the ability to transform into animals (tigers, eagles, etc). There is a plot and story line to this series, but I think the main thought on this series was "Wouldn't it be fun if a woman truly had to have more than one partner to further her race and help people and no one would think less of her? It would be considered her duty and she would be highly esteemed for doing so." The story sort of centers around that main idea. If that doesn't sound like your kind of story line then definitely stay away from this series otherwise have at it.

Initially it appears that Halcyon is going to feature prominently in this book, which made me very excited. Unfortunately he is quickly dropped to the background. Amber is also scarce in this book. The man who dominates this book is called Dante, he is a rogue whom Mona Lisa meets when she is kidnapped. Having the characters past lives affect their actions was interesting. Unfortunately given the path of events in this book I am not really sure what the point of this book was. I thought things were being set up for some very interesting events to occur in future books, then all of that setup was dashed to bits at the end of the book. There was a lot of sex again, although I do feel that this book had more action than some of the previous books. Normally I would like the additional action scenes, but for some reason they didn't add much to the story. I didn't really like any of the new character additions either. I did like the inclusion of demon nature into Mona Lisa's character. Hopefully that will be expanded on in the next book. As I said, this wasn't a horrible book, just not great. Once again it was a very quick read, only took me a few hours to read it. Hopefully the next book will have a more cohesive plot and delve into some more interesting things about Mona Lisa's demon part.

In the last book one of her lovers dies but is replaced with a character you thought may take his place. Each of her relationships are built on respect which supports her challenge as being considered second rate citizen and strong belief that women should not be forced into subservence and rape by men. This book take a strong turn in another direction. Suddenly she takes on two more men as "lovers." One could be understood as someone who is totally devoted to her and life is getting complicated. The second lover has too many layers that I have issues with: first there is no respect between them to the point that he killed her in another life yet she has no fear of him. Then they have sex and she instantly knows she is pregnant - which is just weird. Then - as a person who is worked in reproductive health - I was screaming when the author confuses Plan B with a medication abortion. The irritation takes an extreme turn when she is kidnapped and arguably raped by this man that thinks he owns her and the baby - and somehow she just gives in. Finally, on the run this man hurts the people trying to save her - which are arguably her family. At this point, she is literally going on picnics with him and her guards are leaving them alone...I think the only thing that would explain this is if someone she is the opposite twin of the original character otherwise she seems just a bastardized version of herself...ugh

    This book was a hard one to rate. I was going back between a 3 and 4, so I am going to say it was a 3.5 The story continues on with Mona Lisa still lingering over the loss of her first love Grphyon. However, it seems if you do not read the anthologies in between the books there are some gaps. However, the one constant that Sunny has in her writing is reiteration. (And boy does she reiterate, sometimes I feel the book is more remembering what happen in the first few books versus the storyline.) On This book was a hard one to rate.

(And boy does she reiterate, sometimes I feel the book is more remembering what happen in the first few books versus the storyline.) Once again Mona Lisa is faced as being held captive, a lot of action packed scenes take place in this story and of course the hot love making of a new lover that she acquires. In this story we meet Dante, a man who was in pain, misery and agony when he first meets Mona Lisa. Of course there is an instant attraction from his side and he has the fierce need to protect the Queen. However, as much as Mona Lisa wants to be compelled by Dante and his rough, masculinity she isn't. She just cant ignore the feeling that she knows him and that she should be deathly afraid of him. Later, the two find out they share a past, a evil past that could effect their future. Mona Lisa is faced to choose a path of trying to love Dante or run in fear of him. Another great story line from Sunny. The only downsides are that she reiterates in DETAIL (which I am having a hard time with because I am reading these books back to back) and her writing style seems to be choppy and confusing at times. But otherwise another enjoyable read.

I was so hoping this series would turn around and I may have gotten my wish with craving. I still am not a fan of mona lisa whose first pov sounds third persony. thats a real turn off for me. not only that but in the few months she's been queen there has been more than enough unoriginal sex, plots that dont take off till half way or 3/4 the way thru and enough rape and kidnap and captivity that I feel like I should be adding these books to my caotive kidnapped shelves of another genre. its been an absolutely migraine of a ride hoping these books end up at the potential that I hoped for when I started them. I dout I will ever like mona lisa especially when dante comes back and she does this I want u dont want u tears and fighting crap again. I have never seen a woman who morns the fact that she has SEVERAL hot awesome men who want to be with her. she makes horrible decisions and im tired of reading 5 page long sex scenes that ive read 100 times already. dante dante dante....this book should have been called mona lisa awakens cause this is where the series takes off. hoping the last couple of books continue in this direction.

Next to Halcyon i love him best mated to Mona Lisa!!

I will continue with the series and i would love to see some of the other charcters get a bk with a HEA as well like Amber, Tersa, Cham and Thaddeus. On to the next Book!!!:)

    The third book in the Monere series, and definitely a steamy one. I like the characters, but I feel sometimes my least favorite character is Mona Lisa. I want her more fleshed out. I also wish she could commit to someone or at least the same few someones. Are we just going to keep seeing her discover new men she wants, only to discard the previous ones?

It also seems like Amber is becoming less of a character and getting pushed further out. He seems very 2D when he does make an appearance. One particular thing I found quite annoying, was the way things were summarized from previous books. Every time something needed to be clarified it felt forced. Like, here, let's stop the story so we can tell you what happened, and now back to the story. There was no flow at all in that regard. I understand the need to try to make it a stand alone book, but it was done very poorly. Overall, I did enjoy the book, I read it very quickly, but I did feel something lacking with the story and the characters. I am curious what will happen with Dante in the future. Will he be continued as an important man in her life, good or bad? Or will he get tossed to the side of the story like the rest have been? We shall see in 2009 I suppose.

    The book was my least favorite in the series and that includes the Over the Moon excerpt with Dontaine which I found utterly ridiculous. There was way too much going on in this book. The main character is all over the place. I still LOVE Amber (wish he wasn't in Mississippi) and see that love story but Halcyon and Dontaine….really.

I should have known that would be ruined as it was providing possible stability for our over sexed Queen. It really takes away from the story to have her be so unpaired (or multi-paired?). The only constant is Amber but we barely see him. We should have really hung on to Dante. She couldn’t forgive him but didn’t she kill everyone he cared about too. That made no sense to me. She couldn’t forgive him but she was a killer too. Dante was her equal and he complimented her without overshadowing her (very much like Amber). There was a lot of twist and turns that could have come from that pairing for books to come. Missed opportunity unless…Let’s hope book 4 does Dante justice.

    I actually managed to like this book of the Monere series. As this particular part of Mona Lisa's story gives us a more in-depth look at who she is as a character. Her past life and her present are actually discussed and carefully revealed to her and her men when she is kidnapped and brought to a young man that is afflicted with Lunar madness do to not having ever taken in the moon's light before. Whom she and the rest of her men discover is the same man in her previous life that had killed her. I actually managed to like this book of the Monere series.

So this leads to Mona Lisa dealing with conflicting emotions from that past life and that of her present fears. That get all the more complicated when she winds up pregnant with Dante's (Lunar madness guy/guy from past life) child. Which should be good news as the Monere are more than appreciative of their Queens having children. But in Mona Lisa's case she is unsure about keeping the child or not do to being part demon. So with all of that said, I will totally recommend this book. Shows some major character growth on Mona Lisa's part and hopefully leads to more interesting developments to come.

    Fantastic! A new dark and tortured soul. Admissions of affection. Steamy moments and great terrifying moments that left me breathless. I read this entirely too quickly.

Her ancient past catches up with her as she is, again, kidnapped although this time the cause is noble. To save a life. The life she saves has an awful secret to hide. His name is Dante. In a past life he obliterated those she loved and protected. A curse was thrust upon him before her past self was murdered. In the present she fights fear and longing towards Dante. A new life sparks inside her and greater fear is very real. Will the baby be cursed as she is with the lust for blood? Will it break a curse? Can she bare Dante's presence or does she want him to leave? Will her new found healer stay? Can she master herself? Will loving Halcyon and being his mate make her more feared, or respected, or just a greater target? There are quite a few serious questions. Yet in the end you'll only be asking one. . . Why?

    My least favorite of the series so far. I hadn't read Lucinda, Darkly before reading this book and it felt like I had missed episodes, which I had, since Mona Lisa's story apparently continues there. Maybe that was why I found her a bit more annoying than usual in this story and couldn't justify her attitude as much as in the previous books. Apart from that, Mona Lisa's past life has come to haunt her, along with a new and exciting man named Dante. A lot of things have changed about her and the wa My least favorite of the series so far.

Apart from that, Mona Lisa's past life has come to haunt her, along with a new and exciting man named Dante. A lot of things have changed about her and the way she thinks and her actions were sometimes not optimal in the situations she found herself in, managing to make things worse for both herself and those around her. I'm going to read Lucinda next, to fill in the gaps, before the next book of the series, Mona Lisa Darkening.

    Well this book was a bit over the top..... There was an actual story line to follow and of course there is the usual: lust, sex, fighting, kidnapping, killing, lust, sex, fighting, killing.... But Mona Lisa is now a pregnant "Living Demon", Mixed-Blood Monere Queen, mate of the Halcyon Demon Prince of Hell. She is pregnant from a Monere Warrior from a previous life who murdered her in cold blood (but not before she cursed him for eternity)...and now that she is pregnant by him, she is out to bre Well this book was a bit over the top.....

She is pregnant from a Monere Warrior from a previous life who murdered her in cold blood (but not before she cursed him for eternity)...and now that she is pregnant by him, she is out to break the curse...... It was all a bit much....I'd ask: What more could possibly happen to her? But, then something more unbelievable would be written. Here's the thing, the basic premise that began the series was good...but the author added too many far-out, totally ridiculous, unbelievable traits to the heroine. It's as if Mona Lisa is suffering from multiple personality disorder (schizophrenia). The more lunacy (pun intended) the worse the books get for me. All in all, it was a better story than the last one.
