Wow, what a crap weekend in terms of finding anything new to post. Didn’t seem to be much going on, but hopefully that will change soon. But at least it is time again for another new series alert, this time featuring one new adult and one new young adult release. This first one has already been featured in a giveaway here at Wicked Scribes, but this is finally the release week for the first book of Kresley Cole‘s IAD spin-off series, The Dacians. Shadow’s Claim promises to be a biggie (and the excerpt I read a few days ago definitely backed that idea up).
He won’t be denied.
Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has spent his life serving his people, striking in the night, quietly executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman has never desired anything for himself—until he beholds Bettina, the sheltered ward of two of the Lore’s most fearsome villains.
She’s bound to another.
Desperate to earn her guardians’ approval after a life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry whichever suitor prevails—even though she’s lost her heart to another. Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.
A battle for her body and soul.
Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina’s heart is yet to come. And unleashing a millennium’s worth of savage need will either frighten his Bride away—or stoke Bettina’s own desires to a fever-pitch….

And this second one is from author Corrine Jackson. Touched is the title of the first book in the Sense Thieves series.
Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.
Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll becoming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

*Sigh* And there it is. You know you are sad when you make a post and talk yourself into buying another book. Touched went right under my radar, until I read the synopsis above…and now I have to go order. Sad. So very, very sad.
