April BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerBy what can only be described as a monster margin, you chose J.R. Ward‘s The King as April’s book of the month. I know a lot of people are not fans of the hardcovers, so lets work it like this. If you would like to enter the giveaway, just leave a comment in the comment section. Mention if you would like the hardcover version, or the Kindle edition. I am not quite sure how “gifting” works through Amazon, so if you can hold my hand through the procedure and tell me what to do I will give the e-book format thing a shot (scary). We can see how that goes. If you wish to chose one of the OTHER books from the book of the month poll, that is ok, too.

Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random through random.org. Let’s shut this puppy down, say, Wednesday at midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them.

There were 20 entrants for this giveaway, and the randomly chosen winner (through Random.org) is #19…

March BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerWell, by quite a decent margin, you have chosen Anne Bishop‘s Murder of Crows as March’s book of the month. The early reviews I have started seeing around for this one are very, very positive, and that makes me even more excited to get back into The Other world.

If you would like to win a copy of Murder of Crows, just drop a line in the comments section. Let’s wrap this one up quickly and say that the giveaway ends Sunday night, Midnight (Atlantic time). Giveaway open to all, winner to be chosen at random. Good luck!

a murder of crowsSynopsis…

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others—where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules…

After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

February BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerI have to say, I was surprised by the choice for February’s book of the month. I figured that it would be pretty close, but that Lora Leigh‘s Rule Breaker would squeak by with a victory.

Nope.

It looks like the book of the month instead comes from Chloe Neill and her Chicagoland Vampires world. Wild Things is book number nine of the series, and it has a release date of February 4th.

If you would like to win a print copy of Wild Things, just drop a line in the comments section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random. Let’s have this one end on Sunday night, Midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

wild thingsSynopsis…

Since Merit was turned into a vampire, and the protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House, it’s been a wild ride. She and Master vampire Ethan Sullivan have helped make Cadogan’s vampires the strongest in North America, and forged ties with paranormal folk of all breeds and creeds, living or dead…or both.

But now those alliances are about to be tested. A strange and twisted magic has ripped through the North American Central Pack, and Merit’s closest friends are caught in the crosshairs. Gabriel Keene, the Pack Apex, looks to Merit and Ethan for help. But who—or what—could possibly be powerful enough to out-magic a shifter?

Merit is about to go toe to toe, and cold steel to cold heart, to find out.

Up From the Grave Giveaway Winner…

winner bannerIt is hard to believe that the final book in Jeanine Frost‘s Night Huntress series, Up From the Grave, will be out in a matter of a few days, but all good things must come to an end (and make room for Ian’s story. Hint hint).

There were 28 entrants for the giveaway, and the winner as chosen through Random.org was #19…

Congratulations, Shelly. I will contact you shortly for your info.

January BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerI hope everyone had a great New Year’s holiday. To I am sure no one’s surprise, the very first book of the month for 2014 is the final book in Jeaniene Frost‘s epic Night Huntress series, Up From the Grave. While I am sorry to see it go, I am glad for it to end on a high note, and I still have major hopes for Ian’s story (not to mention the third Night Prince book, which should be out sometime this year. I hope).

If you would like to win a print copy of Up From the Grave, just drop a line in the comments section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random. Let’s have this one end on Friday night, Midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

up from the graveSynopsis…

The Grave Ends Here.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones.  They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights.  Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.  And if they fail, their lives–and those of everyone they hold dear– will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

Well, I am still not rabidly waiting for any books this month, but there are some solid releases heading our way. I wasn’t surprised to see Larissa Ione’s Reaver chosen as Book of the Month, but I did think that there would be a little more competition for it. Anyways, on to the giveaway part of the post.

If you would like to win a print copy of Larissa Ione‘s fifth Lords of Deliverance book, Reaver, just drop a line in the comments section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random. Let’s have this one end on Tuesday night, midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

reaverSynopsis…

WARRIOR OF HEAVEN

Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he’s agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before…to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.

ANGEL OF HELL

Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she’s been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan’s lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld’s darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel’s blood…
