The Drafter (The Peri Reed Chronicles, 1) – Kim Harrison

Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her to use her body as a weapon, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run.

Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.

When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.

Dark Ascension (Generation V, 4) – M. L. Brennan

As the “wickedly clever” (Publishers Weekly) series continues, reluctant, slacker vampire Fortitude Scott learns that nothing is more important than family—or more deadly….

After a lifetime of avoiding his family, Fort has discovered that working for them isn’t half bad—even if his mother, Madeline, is a terrifying, murderous vampire. His newfound career has given him a purpose and a paycheck and has even helped him get his partner, foxy kitsune Suzume, to agree to be his girlfriend. All in all, things are looking up.

Only, just as Fort is getting comfortable managing a supernatural empire that stretches from New Jersey to Ontario, Madeline’s health starts failing, throwing Fort into the middle of an uncomfortable and dangerous battle for succession. His older sister, Prudence, is determined to take over the territory. But Fort isn’t the only one wary of her sociopathic tendencies, and allies, old and new, are turning to him to keep Prudence from gaining power.

Now, as Fort fights against his impending transition into vampire adulthood, he must also battle to keep Prudence from destroying their mother’s kingdom—before she takes him down with it….

What to do with a Duke (Spinter House, 1) – Sally MacKenzie

Welcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love…

Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town’s infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart—the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and the only man who’s ever impressed her in the least…

With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can’t help but be stirred by Cat. It’s terribly unfortunate he’s not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir’s birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken—in true fairy-tale fashion—by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin…

Here is the first time that best-selling fantasy, YA, and crime author Kelley Armstrong has had her stories collected from Otherworld and beyond.

Le Scénario Parfait – Camille Adler

De rupture en râteau, la vie amoureuse de Lily est désespérante. Pourquoi la réalité n’a-t-elle rien à voir avec les comédies romantiques dont la jeune femme raffole ? Jusqu’au jour où Lily entre en possession d’un stylo étrange : si elle appuie sur le bouchon, le monde qui l’entoure se transforme en film à l’eau de rose. Nantie de ce pouvoir, Lily peut tourner la tête à de parfaits inconnus ou encore gagner le coeur de Vincent, son séduisant patron. Mais quel scénario veut-elle vraiment écrire ?

Afin d’échapper à une famille qu’elle abhorre, elle rêve de partir pour les Indes. Malheureusement, sa mère a d’autres projets pour elle et l’oblige à conclure un marché : elle pourra y aller si elle parvient à refuser trois demandes en mariage.
Kate se rend alors au manoir de Blackmoore où elle retrouve son cher ami d’enfance, Henry Delafield. Au coeur des landes sauvages, Kate doit faire face à la vérité qui a, depuis toujours, maintenu son coeur captif. La troisième demande en mariage la libérera-t-elle vraiment ?

Alors qu’il approche de l’âge d’homme et que s’éveillent en lui des désirs de plus en plus vifs, Imriel en vient à partager leurs craintes et se trouve piégé au coeur d’une trame de meurtres et de manipulations où il devra faire face au plus grand des défis : découvrir sa véritable nature.

  1. Kim Harrison est dans une nouvelle série, je pense que les éditeurs français vont se barrer pour la trad. A moins que Milady est toujours le monopole. Sally Mackenzie aussi. ça je passe mon tour car j’aime beaucoup moins. Le tome de de sa série Mis à nu à été un calvaire. J’attends avec impatience Le scénario Parfait. Je pense que je ne pourrais pas m’empêcher de le livre une fois dans les mains. Je veux vraiment voir dans quoi elle va nous embarquer. J’attends avec impatience la sortie poche de Blackmoore. Bisous.

  2. Sympathique liste ! Ils distribuaient The Drafter au bookcon, mais comme une idiote j’ai oublié de le prendre ^^ Sinon il faut toujours que je commence l’autre série de Sally McKenzie dont tu m’as parlé, mais je suivrais ta lecture de celle là avec attention, je suis toujours à la rechercher de petites romances bien sympathiques.

  3. So many great books this week. 🙂 A few that I want to get or get to the series of. 🙂

    Hope you have a lovely week!
