winner bannerThis rolled around fast, but I wanted to get the winner for Kim Harrison‘s The Witch With No Name done well before the release date of September 9th so that the lucky entrant wouldn’t pre-order it. There were 25 entrants for this month’s giveaway, and the randomly chosen winner (through Random.org) was #10…

September’s BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway banner

This is the first month where the winner of the book of the month title came as a surprise to me. Even though it is a month that is packed with great new releases, I figured either Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s Son of No One or Christine Feehan‘s Dark Blood would come in on top. Nope, instead it is the final book in the Rachel Morgan/The Hollows series from Kim Harrison, The Witch With No Name.

If you would like to win a hardcover copy of The Witch With No Name when it is released on September 9th, just drop a line in the comments section.

Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random through random.org. Let’s end this Tuesday night at midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

At long last… The final book in the New York Times bestselling Hollows series by Kim Harrison!

Rachel Morgan’s come a long way from the clutzy runner of Dead Witch Walking. She’s faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witchs, and soul-eating demons. She’s crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She’s lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price. That time is now.

To save Ivy’s soul and the rest of the living vampires, to keep the demonic ever after and our own world from destruction, Rachel Morgan will risk everything.

Are you sad to see this one wrapping up, or are you glad it is ending on a high note?

Dark Skye Winner…

winner bannerI have to say, my excitement for Dark Skye is growing after a bit of a slow start, and I still can’t quite put my finger on what was holding me back. Thronos and Lanthe have been my must-read couple since the beginning, so not sure what is going on. Well, enough about moi.

There were 37 entrants for the latest Kresley Cole book, and the randomly chosen winner (through Random.org) was #26…

Eternal Obsession

As a boy, Thronos, Lord of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

Endless Yearning

Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?

With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

 

Magic Breaks Winner…

Sorry about the delay for posting, but dear Hurricane Arthur knocked our power out for the last 15 hours or so (and I am way, way luckier than most). This is really rare for where I live…I think the longest we have ever gone without power is something like an hour, maybe two. Anyways, back to business.

There were 39 entrants for the Ilona Andrews Magic Breaks giveaway, and the randomly chosen winner (through Random.org) was #21…

July’s Book of the Month and Giveaway…

I am pretty sure no one is too shocked but July’s book of the month is Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews. I am finishing up the re-read of the entire series for the character guide, and to say that I expect big things from this one is a huge understatement. Surprisingly, though, I have found myself more focused on Burn for Me (the new Avon series) than this one, but the excitement is building now. And hardcover! Yay! (My inner nerd just broke free).

If you are interested in winning a copy when it is released on July 29th, just leave a comment in the section below.

Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random through random.org. Let’s end this Friday night at midnight (Atlantic time). Good luck!

No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…

shield of winterSynopsis…

Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.

For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…

Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she’ll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

sixth graveSynopsis…

Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it’s time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn’t come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she’s used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.
