Enemy Games (Enemy, 2) – Marcella Burnard
Kidnapped while combating a devastating plague, Jayleia Durante fights to resist the attractive Major Damen Sindrivik, an officer from a rival government’s spy corps. But with her spymaster father missing, and mercenaries hot on her trail, Jayleia must join forces with the magnetic, charming and manipulative spy. She must see past her desire and remember that his single-minded agenda is for the protection of the empire – not her or her people.Damen knows a shadowy network of traitors has allied with the violent Chekydran, and that Jayleia’s father holds the key to dismantling that web. She becomes his only lead in a circuitous round of hide and seek and despite their opposing sides, he can’t resist her. Too bad his instincts tell him Jayleia is lying to him.Now Jayleia and Damen must find the love to match their passion and end the war or they’ll become the prey of the traitors they stalk, and one species’ civil war will consume the galaxy.
The Stepsister Scheme (Princess, 1) – Jim C. Hines
What would happen if an author went back to the darker themes of the original fairy tales for his plots, and then crossed the Disney princesses with “Charlie’s Angels?” Hines delivers a new take on what happened to Cinderella and her prince after the wedding. Original.==You know how all those old fairy tales take you through lots of scary adventures till you finally reach that inevitable line: “And they lived happily ever after…” Guess what? It’s not true. Life in never-never land isn’t all sweetness and light. Cinderella – whose real name is Danielle Whiteshore (nee Danielle de Glas) – does marry Prince Armand. And (if you can ignore the pigeon incident) their wedding is a dream-come-true.But not long after the “happily ever after,” Danielle is attacked by her stepsister Charlotte, who suddenly has all sorts of magic to call upon. And though Talia – otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty – comes to the rescue (she’s a martial arts master, and all those fairy blessings make her almost unbeatable), Charlotte gets away.
That’s when Danielle discovers a number of disturbing facts: Armand has been kidnapped and taken to the realm of the Fairies; Danielle is pregnant with his child; and the Queen has her very own Secret Service that consists of Talia and Snow (White, of course). Snow is an expert at mirror magic and heavy-duty flirting.
Can three princesses track down Armand and extract both the prince and themselves from the clutches of some of fantasyland’s most nefarious villains?
I hope you’ll like them 🙂
I totally want the Hines book, sounds so cool
Both books sound great! Enjoy 🙂

Hahaha, D! You are way ahead of me on both books Enemy Games is on my wishlist and so is The Stepsister’s Scheme – both I’ve been dying to read. I think I’ll have to pester you to read A Soldier’s Duty by Jean Johnson now if you enjoyed Enemy Within – it’s a phenomenal series. Enjoy both, sweetheart!
Both of your books are new to me. i hadn’t heard of either of them. Good job. Come visit me as well.
I just went hunting for the Jim Hines book. I had to put in an ILL request at the library since they don’t have it. It looks awesome!
I’ve been looking for something by Jim Hines that starts a series instead of being in the middle. This looks awesome. And FUN!
This is the first that I’ve heard of both of these, so thanks for bringing them to my attention! I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
