Hey all, just a quick cover lover post for tonight’s entertainment. Let’s start off with a couple from the authors I feature here with their own pages. Midnight Marked is something like the second last book in Chloe Neill‘s Chicagoland Vampires series, and it is due out on March 3rd.
Faith Hunter‘s Blood in Her Veins is a collection of 19 Jane Yellowrock novellas, and it is due out on February 2nd.
In this must-have collection of stories, experience nineteen thrilling adventures from the world of vampire-hunter Jane Yellowrock, including many fan favorites and two all-new novellas. Read about the first time Jane put the pedal to the metal in “The Early Years,” and the last thing a werewolf will ever see as Jane delivers justice in “Beneath a Bloody Moon.” Get a searing look into the pasts of some of the series’ best-loved characters: Beast in “WeSa and the Lumber King,” Rick LaFleur in “Cat Tats,” and Molly Everhart Trueblood in “Haints.”
In the brand-new “Cat Fight,” the witches and vampires of Bayou, Oiseau, are at war over a magical talisman—and Jane must figure out how to keep the mysterious artifact out of the covetous hands of the Master of New Orleans. And in the never-before-published “Bound No More,” Jane welcomes a visit from Molly and her daughter, Angie, who is about to prove she’s the most powerful witch in Everhart history….
From the Big Easy to the bad bayou, from the open road to a vampire’s lair—with Jane Yellowrock, it’s always a given: have stakes, will travel.
Up next is Invision, the 7th book of the Chronicles of Nick series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Look for it on April 8th.
Think there’s a lot of pressure on your shoulders? Nick Gautier was born to bring about the end of the world . . . it’s not easy being the heir of a demon overlord.
But Nick is determined to thwart his destiny and get into a good college. To be more than his genetics and prophecy foretell. No one is ever going to tell this stubborn Cajun who and what he really is. Or how to live his life.
Not even the Fates of the Universe. But now that he and his team of ancient gods and demons have claimed the Eye of Ananke and he sees the missteps of the future, he has to battle the demons within that are far deadlier and more treacherous than any he’s battled before. All the while his arch nemesis is back and determined to reclaim his place as the harbinger for Armageddon. Even if it means killing Nick and barbecuing everyone he loves to do so.
Next up is Smoldering Hunger from Donna Grant, which is the 8th book in her Dark Kings series. It will be released on December 29th.
Darius is back. Edinburg thought it had seen the last of this seductive Dragon King, but that was before Darius had a change of heart. He just can’t stay away from the impossibly beautiful Dr. Sophie Martin-even though he knows that a passion this strong could prove detrimental…for them both.
Sophie tried to forget her encounter with smoking-hot Darius-and once hoped they’d never even meet again. But now that she’s in possession of a desperate secret, Sophie finds herself in mortal danger. . .and Darius, who has vowed to protect her, appears to be her only hope. But can she trust the notorious dragon shapeshifter? The only thing she knows for sure is that she cannot resist him…
And wrapping things up for this little batch is Lucy March‘s For Love or Magic, which is the third book in her Nodaway Falls series. It has a release date of December 1st.
As if being married to him wasn’t hard enough! Nodaway Falls turns out to be a town with more than a little magic in the air. Eliot swore off using her own powers sixteen years ago, thanks to one catastrophic day when she lost the only people who ever mattered to her, and ran away from her spellbinding father and his reckless enchantments. Now, when a chance encounter with quiet, handsome Desmond Lamb results in a magical explosion that rocks Eliot to the core, she can’t help but wonder: Has her heart fallen under some sort of spell? Or is this what true love really feels like? The real question, of course, is whether her husband will stop haunting her . . . and let Desmond give her a chance at happily ever after?
This batch of covers comes with some baggage. I am not a rabid Chicagoland Vampires series fan, but I will still be sorry to see it wrap up. I wouldn’t mind a bit more from this world, maybe a spin-off series would work. It also reminds me that I have to get my ass in gear to get the Jane Yellowrock series caught up before its spin-off series starts in the fall, and that I am a few books behind on my Chronicles of Nick TBR collection. These covers are giving me grief across the board.
