I’m with Tori over at her blog…with guests! And prizes!
Visit us! Come try and win stuff!
Now… I’m kinda tired of my friday flashbacks and my brain is a mess. Finished a book this week and trying to get my brain in gear for the next phase of this project (don’t ask)… so instead, we’ll TALK books.
Yep, another Friday…yay! So, that means it’s time for another round of Friday 56. Grab the closest (doesn’t have to be what you’re reading, just what you happen to have nearby). Turn to page 56, and give us the 5th sentence…or more if you’d like. Mine this week:
“And the slight imperfection of his nose–which looked like it had once been broken–gave him just enough character to save him from being pretty.”
I love these series… I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings. But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. … Continue reading →
They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him.
Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can’t-or won’t-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman’s safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet. For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost: Cara’s life.
Be warned…today and tomorrow, I talk about awesome books.
Of course, it’s a fricking awesome series. I love the Archangel books. They are amazing. This one is due out tomorrow… I read it a couple months ago and it’s so amazing.
An ancient and malevolent female immortal is rising in Manhattan to reclaim her son, the archangel Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena Deveraux, a vampire-hunter-and Raphael’s lover.
Now that blurb doesn’t even touch on this book. But whoa… it’s good. If you haven’t read the first of the Archangel books? Like urban fantasy/romance and action/awesome stuff? You must read. Start with Angel’s Blood. Read more about them at her site here.
Okay… I had a pointed reminder that some people were wanting to hear from me on the last and finalllllll *sob…sniffle… noooooo* Stardoc book.
Dream Called Time.
What can I say about this book? Other than wailing over the fact that it ended…well, I guess I can say that I think SL Viehl ended it beautifully. Now, bear in mind, she took some serious fricking risks here. But oh…how she ended the series? It left me with a smile. It left me happy. It left me thinking that this was a fitting end to this series… these characters that I loved so much, Duncan, Marel & Cherijo, who had been through so much would have exactly what they needed to be happy…each other.
Maya gave me a copy at a signing a little over a week ago and I gobbled it down. It’s due out next Tuesday. You should read it.
Sam Kelly was her first love.
The last person Sam Kelly expected to pull wounded from the lake was Sophie Lundgren. Once they shared a brief, intense affair while Sam was undercover and then she vanished. She’s spent the last months on the run, knowing that any mistake would cost her life and that of her unborn child—Sam’s child. Now she’s resurfaced with a warning for Sam: this time, he’s the one in danger.
Now he’s her last chance.
Sam has too many questions to let her slip away again—like why she disappeared in the first place. This time he vows not to be seduced. But one look in her eyes, and the passion burns again, and Sam knows he’ll do anything to keep her and his child safe. However, Sophie’s dark past is more dangerous than he imagines, and the only way for either to survive it is to outrun it.
I’m on a Maya Banks glom-fest…Just finished her book Sweet Seduction and she was so awesome-sent me KGI #3, Hidden Away that I’ll be reading soon…I’m really loving the Kelly books.
Yep, it’s #2 in the series, can work just fine as a standalone, IMO.
I read this short story last week, and loved it. It’s an altogether lovely story.

A love as rare—and precious—as a desert rain.
Marrin Levy needs a man. Not to have children. Her husband gave her three before he died—along with a failing homestead and crushing debt. What she needs is a strong back to help her wrest a living from the harsh, desert planet of Lujawed.
She’s sent away for a field-husband to take over the hard labor, nothing more. She never expected the devastatingly handsome, forever-young Seveeran, Keane Delacore, would fit so easily into her family’s life.
Keane’s heart is as strong as his back, bringing Marrin more than just help in the fields. He offers her love she never thought she’d feel again…if she has the courage to reach out and take it.
This book has been previously published.
Warning: Contains three-alarm love scenes and a three-hankie love story. Read it and weep—in a good way!
