Another Monday, another couple of new series to highlight. Or, rather, a couple new series, and one return to the beginning. October 1st sees the start of the print run for Sara Humphreys‘ Amoveo Legacy with the release of Unleashed.
A fresh, exciting take on shape-shifters, which is one of the hottest areas of paranormal romance, this debut was originally self-published in a limited edition and was a word-of-mouth sensation for booksellers in a major national book chain.
The acclaimed and highly original world-building of Sara Taney Humphreys introduces the Amoveo race– beautiful, strong shape-shifters who live secretly among humans and are threatened by outside forces as well as enemies from within. After endless searching, Malcolm has found his mate, Samantha, but she doesn’t know who she really is and won’t believe it when he tells her…
It will be followed by Untouched on April 1st.
New series number two is a nice change from the weres and vamps. The Goblin King is the first book from Shona Husk‘s Goblin series, starting on October 1st.
Cursed by a Druid millennia ago, Roan lives a bleak existence in the Shadowlands, desperately trying to retain his soul and not succumb to the goblin horde. When a beautiful human summons him to grant a wish, he sees a glimmer of hope. But will she ever agree to be his queen?
There will be at least two more books – Kiss of the Goblin Prince, and For the Love of a Goblin Warrior.
Been waiting to get my hands on this one for a while. A Touch of Crimson is the new one from Sylvia Day, featuring a whole crew of powerful, deadly Renegade Angels.
Adrian Mitchell is an angel of immense power and insatiable desire. Leading an elite Special Ops unit of the Seraphim, his task is to punish the Fallen—angels who have become vampires—and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.
But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals—losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her—Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body with no memory of him. Only this time he won’t let her go.
With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson only knows she can’t help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught in the middle between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There’s more at stake than her love and her life—this time she could lose her very soul…
Look for the follow-up, A Hunger So Wild, early next year.
And finally, J.R. Ward‘s early Black Dagger Brotherhood books are in the process of being re-released in hardcover Collector’s Edition format, starting with the book that started it all, Dark Lover. I was so hoping for this to happen, so this makes me a happy, happy girl.
In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing their enemies-the lessers-more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed, leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate, Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.
