Upcoming May Releases

The Forgotten Girl By Jessica Sorensen



Publication Date: 5/13/2014


Official Blurb:

Twenty-one year-old Maddie Asherford is haunted by a past she can’t remember. When she was fifteen years old, there was a tragic accident and she was left with amnesia.

In the aftermath, Maddie’s left struggling with who she is—the forgotten girl she was six years ago or the Maddie she is now. Sometimes it even feels like she might be two different people completely—the good Maddie and the bad one.

Good Maddie goes to therapy, spends time with her family, and works on healing herself. Bad Maddie rebels and has dark thoughts of hurting people and sometimes even killing them.

Maddie manages to keep her twisted thoughts hidden for the most part. That is until she starts having blackouts. Each time she wakes up from one, she’s near a murder scene with no recollection of what happened the night before and this helpless feeling like she’s losing control of her life. Maddie doesn’t want to believe she’s a killer, but she begins to question who she really was in her past. If she was bad Maddie all along and that maybe she was a killer.

 

Probability of Violet and Luke by Jessica Sorensen



 Publication Date: 5/14/2014


 

Official Blurb:

Luke Price and Violet Hayes haven’t seen each other in a month, not since they found out about Luke’s mother being involved in Violet’s parent’s murders. But when Luke gets into some gambling trouble, the only person he can turn to for help is Violet.

Violet is torn on whether she should help Luke, especially because she has her own problems to worry about. But it’s hard to say no to the only person she’s ever had feelings for.

 

Tamed by Rebecca Zanetti



 Publication Date: 5/15/2014



Official Blurb:


Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. At heart he's a conqueror, his appetites far more carnal than spiritual. He's not inclined to repress his passions and surrender to fate. After all, that's what cost him Lily—three centuries ago. She married another, because it was ordained. Now that he's in the same benighted calling—and forced into proximity with her—all the old desires are roaring back to life. . .

After widowhood and centuries of celibacy, Lily is eager to explore the wild side of life, except now she's vulnerable to another forced relationship, with an enemy. But this time she's determined to choose her own path. And if hot, furious Caleb comes charging to the rescue, it might just change both their destinies. . .

Love is about to start conquering. . .

 

 

Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones



Publication Date: 5/20/2014


 

Official Blurb:

Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it's time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn't come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she's used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow

Full Cover Reveal and First Two Chapters of The Witch With No Name by Kim Harrison

 



As much as I was excited about “The Witch With No Name” being released in September, today’s full cover reveal and chapters had me anxiously counting down until 12:00PM EST when the reveal took  place. I fell in love with this series in 2012 while recovering from spinal surgery. It pains me to think that after this book is released my love affair with all things Rachel and Trent will end. I hope that I as well as many other readers of this series will get the HEA we all think Rachel and Trent deserve.

Cover Reveal and Chapter Reaction:




In true Kim Harrison fashion, the cover for the WWNN resembles a Clint Eastwood Film Poster.  For those of you who don’t know, The Hollows series book titles are all references to Client Eastwood Movies. The man standing in the background has been confirmed to me Trent, yet, it makes me wonder. Are Trent and Rachel in a standoff or is Trent waiting on her. Guess that question will remain unanswered until September.

http://www.kimharrison.net/BookPages/WWNN/WWNN2.html

I…LOVED… the first two chapters. This book seems to hit the ground running with action and suspense. The cliffhanger on Ivy’s survival at the end of Chapter two had me stunned. I can’t fathom the killing off of such an important character to the story so soon so I have to deep down hope that Bis can find them and transport them to Trent’s medical suite. I would have liked to see Trent make an appearance in the first couple of chapters, but I’m assuming he’ll make his grand entrance in Chapter 3, which will be released in May. The first two chapters give us Hollows fans just a little taste of whats to come. I have a feeling this book will be jammed pack with action, love, and sacrifice. Let the countdown begin....

Rating: 5 STARS!!

Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

Official Blurb:

ONSTANT DANGER

On the run from a mental institution and her vindictive half-brother, it's safe to say that Sarah Pringle's happy life as a schoolteacher is on hold. Too bad that as far as self-defense goes, "run and hide" is the best she's got. And with the monsters that started her escape hot on her heels, that's not going to cut it for long...

INSTANT LUST
That is, unless Sarah has a bigger, badder, hotter monster on her side. Max Petrovsky is right at the top of the list of alpha male ass-kickers. And he knows exactly what Sarah's up against. Good thing, because the minute he sees her something primal kicks in, turning everyday attraction into red-hot desire. As long as they're cooperating, why not mix some pleasure with business? Of course, Max should probably tell Sarah he's a vampire himself...

Review: Tempt the Stars by Karen Chance



Series: Cassie Palmer #6
Published: 10/1/2013
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12528745-tempt-the-stars
Review Rating: 3 stars

Official Blurb:

Being a goddess is a lot less fun than you might think. Especially when you’re only a half goddess, and you only found out about it recently, and you still don’t know what you’re doing half the time. And when you’ve just used your not-so-reliable powers to burglarize the booby-trapped office of a vampire mob boss.
Yeah, that part sucks.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg for Cassandra Palmer, aka the Pythia, the freshly minted chief seer of the supernatural world. After all, Cassie still has to save a friend from a fate worse than death, deal with an increasingly possessive master vampire, and prevent a party of her own acolytes from unleashing a storm of fury upon the world. Totally just your average day at the office, right?

Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series


In honor of the first season finale of Bitten, and hopefully not the last!!!!!, I'd like to post a recommendation to read this series.

This book series compromises of 13 books. The women of the otherworld series follows multiple female character. In the first two books, the lead character, Elena Michaels, is the only female werewolf. Elena and her pack are the center of the show Bitten. But, this series isn't just about the werewolves. There's witches, ghosts, demons, vampires, sorcerers, and necromancers as well. If you want a book series that encompasses love, vengeance, suspense, etc then you love this series!!!!

Book Quotes

After starting and finishing the current books in Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series this week, I have been thinking a lot about my favorite book quotes. In Jones’ series, each Chapter begins with a phrase or saying of some kind. Over the years of reading paranormal romance books, there are quotes from books that still come to mind in every day life. I have compiled a list of my favorites. Feel free to add yours in the comments!!!

“How would you like your eggs?" I tried. I really did. But I glanced at his crotch and it came out anyway. "Fertilized?” ― Darynda JonesFifth Grave Past the Light

“I was just passing by. Saw the commotion. Figured you were involved.” ― Darynda JonesFifth Grave Past the Light

“Merit: “I am yours until you ban bacon, or otherwise as long as I can put up with you.” ― Chloe NeillBiting Cold

 “Give me something to go on, here. What kind of black magic are we talking? Elphaba,Wicked Witch of the West-type stuff or Slytherin-type stuff?” ― Chloe NeillHard Bitten

 “Death waits for no vampire. – Ethan Sullivan.  I like Bacon  - Merit” ― Chloe Neill, House Rules

Published: 04/01/2014
My Review Rating:  3.5 Stars
Goodreads Website: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17703290-the-king

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

Spoiler Alert:
