Book Description:
Meet Dina Demille, a nice Texas gal who runs a seemingly ordinary, quaint B&B.  But Dina’s inn is a magic, thinking entity; her fluffy Shih-tzu, Beast really is a beast; and her guests are the kind that no one on earth is supposed to know about:  guests like a dethroned galactic tyrant with a massive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced—and superhot—alpha-strain werewolf.  

So don’t expect a normal stay…and don’t stand too close, or you may be collateral damage….

In Clean Sweep, Dina—with the unwanted assistance of newcomer (and alpha werewolf) Sean Evans and Arland, a cosmic vampire soldier—takes on an extraterrestrial killing machine that could destroy her Inn, her neighbors, and everything she holds dear.

Sweep in Peace, finds Dina hosting an anything-but peace summit between three warring intergalactic species; Space Vampires, the Hope-Crushing Horde, and the devious Merchants of Baha-char.  


One Fell Sweep sends Dina to the galaxy’s worst penal colony to rescue her sister; and back home to fend off a clan of assassins in pursuit, all while saving a guest’s civilization from annihilation…and searching for her missing parents.







Anyone that knows the writing greatness that is the duo Ilona Andrews knows that when you open up on of their stories you are in for a treat. 

I am so glad I read these three books as a whole because it would have been so hard to wait until each new one was released and of course, after finishing the third, I'm already anxious for the fourth. 

Andrews gave us a treat in this series. It is a bit of something different, something other, a bit of something dangerous, and a bit of something completely all its own and I just couldn't get enough of it.

I loved the play on the “traditional” versions of supernatural species with a whole new twist and spin and then the whole sci fi aspect, which admittedly doesn't usually work for me, but so did in this series. I truly had so much fun with it and I want more.

  3. I thought there were only three books to this series! Well, I'm glad that I waited at least the three volumes have been collected. I didn't have the patience to read them as episodes.

  4. I really need to get on the Ilona Andrews bandwagon. I'm glad you were able to read them in one go because there's nothing more annoying than waiting for each installments!

  5. I listened to the first one last year, I started it right before I had to go home to Idaho and finished when I came home. I liked it but wasn't over the moon, it likely was because of what I was going through. I want to give the other two a go on audio. Glad you enjoyed them.

  9. I grabbed this too. I had been waiting for there to be several out before stating the series, and they conveniently put them together in one volume. Lucky me. lol

  17. I am so loving this series, too! I waited to read the 3rd book until the audio version was done, because I love Rene Raudman's narration! I can't wait for the 4th, as well! :)

    1. I hope you love it but I think you will, the last one was my favorite. Hopefully book four won't take too long to get here.
