New Series Alerts

As I was browsing through Amazon.com to check what e-books have been sort-of last-minute additions to March’s release schedule, I found something that looks interesting. There is a new set of books called Mating Fever, which actually covers a few different series by different authors. Basically, there is a new book being released every couple of days, and the first book of the Dragon Horde collection from author Ronin Winters comes out this week, and it is called Mica.

No one looked more out of place in her tea shop than the big, bearded, muscled and tattooed man, but his daily visits were the highlight of Sophie’s day. If she had the occasional naughty thoughts about the sexy stranger while she was baking scones or organizing the monthly book club, well, indulging in a little fantasy never hurt anyone. Anyway, it’s not like there was a chance of it coming true…

From the first moment he saw the curvy shop proprietor, Mica’s been panting after the gorgeous brunette, and his dragon is going crazy with the need to claim her. Her stunning smile and infectious laugh lightens his heart – and her sweet-as-sin body has a more earthy effect on him. It might take some time to break through her shyness, but Mica can imagine no greater treasure than finally claiming Sophie as his mate.

I have to be honest and admit that I am very excited to get my hands on this next one, which is one of the very, very few exceptions to my new anti-YA stance. Lady Midnight is the first book of The Dark Artifices series from Cassandra Clare, which is the thrid series set in the Shadowhunter world. Can. Not. Wait.

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.

The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.

This is an epic week, what with Lady Midnight, Fire Touched, and Marked in Flesh all coming out. Hard to squeeze that much awesome into so little time, but March is always a terrific month.

    Before this round of “Mating Fever”, there was “Mating Season.” I know Eliza Gayle wrote a set under that, uh, grouping?, but I never picked them up (I always had too many others in my TBR pile/folder, which still continues to grow no matter what I do!)

    In this round of “Mating Fever”, Saranna DeWylde contributes a set, the Drago Knights MC. Her books are usually hilarious — I started with the “How to…” series, and quickly continued with the “Ambrosia Lane,” a.k.a. Desperate Housewives of Olympus/Avalon/et cetera. Maybe if those are can’t-put-down books I’ll give some of the others a try…

      Ah, I didn’t know that. That is what makes me nuts about that type of e-book release – so many of them just slip by me and I never get them added to the new releases. Argh.

        I know what you mean. I kind of see these like the Silhouette and Harlequin of the Paranormal — there’s just so many of them, who can keep track? (And yes, I actually read A LOT of those back in high school and college — blame my grandmother!)

        I have enough trouble keeping up with the authors I try to religiously follow, adding these in would drive me nuts! But seriously, the Saranna DeWylde books are great, so I am really thinking of trying those.

    Hey, I just got my daily email from BookGorilla.com (have you tried them yet? I just signed up, and it’s interesting to see what’s available as cheap/free based on my “preferences” — quotes because I still am not sure how some of the books are making the list, but I am getting off track). One of them today was Craved Wolves of the Sun #4 by Kenzie Cox. The reason I mention it is because this is a Mating Season novella (about 70 pgs it says) from last year. As it’s a freebie, I thought I’d pass it along in case you want to give it a try — if you can, I don’t know how the differences from the US & CAN versions of Amazon’s pages work in reference to these things.
