It’s June! Summer, sunshine, and a lot of reading :). And, I am back with my monthly book round up of anticipated releases. It is a bit sparse this month, but it will be PACKED in July ( and even more so in August),
Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh
Step into New York Times bestseller Nalini Singh’s explosive and shockingly passionate Psy-Changeling world…
A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.
A woman whose very existence has been erased.
A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.
A deadly price that must be paid.
The day of reckoning is here.
From “the alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) comes the most highly anticipated novel of her career—one that blurs the line between madness and genius, between subjugation and liberation, between the living and the dead.
If you haven’t read it yet, you are in for a treat! It wasn’t perfect, but it was really, really good.
His past could end their future
Vampire Dragos Ibanescu, Mayor of Maggie’s Grove, is about to lose his mind. His mate, the dryad queen Mina Chainey, refuses to have anything to do with him after her ordeal at the hands of an evil witch. If he doesn’t mate with her soon, he may lose control of the beast within him—a force far more dangerous than anyone in town knows…
Mina’s nightmares of her time with the witch haunt her. The Queen of the Forest can’t muster the strength needed to fight her terror. Unable to leave the Throne, she vows she will not accept Dragos until she can stand at his side as an equal. But the nightmares are only growing in strength, and soon she realizes that there’s more to her pain than simple fear.
Dark forces are converging on Maggie’s Grove, and a horde of hunters stalk
supernaturals from the shadows. Only by uniting in body and mind will Mina and Dragos find the strength to defend their home.
Dana Marie Bell is one of my autobuy authors, and I loved the first book jn this series. Maybe my problems with this one stems from the fact that I have been anticipating it too much? Not sure. But it is a good book, even if itsn’t one of her best.
Lanie Heron isn’t looking for love—no surprise considering her last serious relationship nearly got her killed. So when Lanie propositions Hop Kincaid, all she wants is one wild night with the hot-as-hell biker. After one night in paradise, Hop realizes Lanie is the best thing that’s ever happened to him—in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.
I squeed when Hachette made this able for Read Now at Netgalley, and downloaded it on the spot. It is next up in the review que.
When Ellie Watt returns to the desert town of Palm Valley, she’s counting on Camden McQueen to still be in love with her. What she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she can’t refuse. But her freedom comes with a price—and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.
I bought this when Mandi at Smexybooks raved about Karina Halle awhile ago ( February, I think), but I haven’t read it. This was picked up by Hachette, and is released today.
