Spirited Away (The Psychic Detectives, 3) – Angela Campbell

Who knew pet-sitting could be so dangerous…or so sexy?!

Socially awkward Emma “Spider” Fisher prefers her laptop to people, so she’s more than happy to oblige her boss when he asks her to pet- and housesit while he honeymoons in London.

But it doesn’t take long for accident-prone Spider to lose a dog, get locked out of the house, and set off the house alarm!

Thankfully, her hot new neighbor is more than happy to come to her rescue. But Noah West is a mystery to Spider—and one she intends to solve.

A  Cursed Bloodline (Weird Girls, 4) – Cecy Robson

The Weird Girls return in another edge-of-your-seat novel from Cecy Robson! Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.

Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric—or Anara will kill everyone she loves.

From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.

Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.

Tainted Blook (Generation V, 3) – M.L. Brennan

In the third Generation V novel, Fortitude Scott proves that working with family can be deadly…

Former film student Fortitude Scott is finally gainfully employed. Unfortunately, said employment happens to be with a group of sociopathic vampires—his family. And as much as Fort is loath to get too deep into the family business, when his brother, Chivalry, is temporarily unable to run the territory, it’s up to Fort to keep things under control.

So when the leader of a powerful faction of shifters turns up murdered, Fort finds himself tracking down a killer while navigating dangerous rivalries, longtime grudges, and hidden agendas. Even with the help of his foxy kitsune sidekick, Suzume, he’ll need to pull out all the stops to hunt for the paranormal assassin.

But as he calls on fairies, witches, and ghouls for help, he discovers that the problem is much bigger than a single dead werebear. The supernatural community is preparing for a massive shift in power within the Scott family leadership—and Fort has landed right in the middle of the gathering storm.…

Hors de la Tombe (Chasseuse de la Nuit, 7) – Jeaniene Frost

Le dernier tome explosif de la saga !
Ces derniers mois ont été d’un calme inhabituel pour les vampires Cat Crawfield et son mari Bones. Mais ils ont eu tort de baisser leur garde.
Les magouilles écoeurantes d’un ancien agent de la CIA menacent de faire exploser les tensions entre humains et morts-vivants. Cat et Bones doivent reprendre du service pour éviter une guerre sans précédent. Une course contre la montre où la moindre erreur peut les condamner à un sort pire que la mort…

 

Cher Mr. Darcy – Amanda Grange
Pemberley et Longbourn sont décrits à travers le point de vue des différents personnages, mais plus particulièrement à travers celui de l’énigmatique Mr Darcy.
Une série de lettres nous dévoile comment ce dernier surmonte son deuil après la mort de son père bien-aimé ; comment il va gérer la relation le liant au scandaleux Mr Wickham et surtout comment il va succomber aux charmes de la spirituelle Elizabeth Bennet, malgré ce que lui dicte son rang.

 

Ce que veulent les Gentlemen (Reece Family Trilogy, 1) – Caroline Linden
Marcus, duc d’Essex, a passé la majeure partie de sa vie à tirer son jumeau du pétrin. Mais cette fois, son frère a été trop loin : il a imité sa signature sur un certificat de mariage, confiant à ses bons soins une femme au caractère bien trempé qu’il n’a aucunement l’intention d’épouser. Quand Hannah découvre la supercherie, elle accepte de se faire passer pour l’épouse de Marcus, mais sa fureur est sans bornes… tout comme le désir inavouable qu’elle éprouve, malgré elle, pour son nouveau mari.




For my birthday, thanks to Carien :

Disappearing Nightly (Esther Diamond, 1) – Laura Resnick

I’m not a heroine — I just play one.

Also psychotics, vamps, orphans, hookers, housewives and — on one memorable occasion — a singing rutabaga. It was never my ambition to utilize my extensive dramatic training by playing a musical vegetable. However, as my agent is fond of pointing out, there are more actors in New York than there are people in most other cities. Translation: Beggars can’t be choosers.

This explains how I wound up painting my body green and prancing around stage half-naked the night Golly Gee, the female lead in the off-broadway show « Sorcerer! » disappeared into thin air. Literally.

Now other performers are also vanishing, and a mysterious stranger is warning me: There is evil among us. But the producers want me to take over Golly’s part.

Looks like I’m going to need a little magical help if I want to keep my starring role . . .

Dark Descendant (Nikki Glass, 1) – Jenna Black

From the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist books comes the gripping first novel in a new series about a private eye who discovers, to her surprise, that she’s an immortal huntress.

Nikki Glass can track down any man. But when her latest client turns out to be a true descendant of Hades, Nikki now discovers she can’t die. . . .

Crazy as it sounds, Nikki’s manhunting skills are literally god-given. She’s a living, breathing descendant of Artemis who has stepped right into a trap set by the children of the gods. Nikki’s new “friends” include a descendant of Eros, who uses sex as a weapon; a descendant of Loki, whose tricks are no laughing matter; and a half-mad descendant of Kali who thinks she’s a spy.

But most powerful of all are the Olympians, a rival clan of immortals seeking to destroy all Descendants who refuse to bow down to them. In the eternal battle of good god/bad god, Nikki would make a divine weapon. But if they think she’ll surrender without a fight, the gods must be crazy. . . .

  1. I bought the first Cecy Robson book in the series thinking it sounded like urban fantasy. Looking at the cover and description of book four here, it looks like I made a mistake! I’m not into sex filled PNR so I think it might be going unread into the trade pile tonight! Happy reading!

  2. OOOh GREAT haul!! Looove Jeaniene Frost! Deadly Descendant was also really good! A different twist with Greek mythology! And can’t wait to read A Cursed Bloodline either! Got that this week myself as well!

    Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Cher Monsieur Darcy me fait TELLEMENT de l’œil! Je meurs d’envie de découvrir tous les livres que je vois passer sur la blogo, traitant d’une manière ou d’une autre d’Orgueil et Préjugés. J’avais vu également un livre du point de vue de Charlotte, ça m’a rendue très curieuse!
    Mais bon, entre Darcy et Charlotte, soyons honnêtes, le choix est vite fait! 😀
