Cover Lover – 6 New Titles

Time once again to see what some of our upcoming releases will look like. Hm, let’s start with the next Christine Feehan Ghostwalker book, Power Game, which will be released in hardcover (uh, yay? Maybe?) on January 24th. At least this female lead doesn’t sound like the “yes, honey” type. I hope.

And this second one is from Faith Hunter. Cold Reign is the 11th book in the Jane Yellowrock series, and it will be released on May 2nd. It is my goal to be caught up on the series by then, too.

cold reignSynopsis…

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most. Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official enforcer to Leo Pellisier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.

But there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.

Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless of cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

Coming in at number three is the new one from the Belador series by Dianna Love. Dragon King of Treoir is the 8th book of the series that started as a collab with Sherrilyn Kenyon.

I used to read Cecy Robson‘s Weird Girls books before they made the jump to self-pubbed, but for some reason I though the series had already wrapped up. This next one is called Of Flame and Light, and it will be released this October 16th.

of flame and lightSynopsis…

Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightning. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran’s insecurities have driven them apart.

Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative.

The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don’t come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered.

Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . .

Paige Tyler continues her X-Ops series with the release of Her True Match, which is due out on March 7th.

her true matchSynopsis…

After a long game of cat-and-mouse

Feline shifter Dreya Clark picks the wrong penthouse to rob and ends up arrested by sexy detective Braden Hayes. But Braden isn’t the only one who’s been watching the cat burglar. Agents from the Department of Covert Operations swoop in to offer her a deal. If she wants to stay out of jail, she’ll have to work with them—and pair up with the hot cop. Great.

Danger throws this unlikely pair together

Braden isn’t thrilled about the DCO meddling in his investigation. He’s been chasing Dreya for years. Thrown together on a dangerous covert mission, fur flies and temperatures flare. But when danger closes in on them, their game of cat and mouse turns deadly-serious, and they’ll have to rely on each other to make it out alive.

This final one is from Jennifer Ashley. Red Wolf is the 10th book in the Shifters Unbound series, and it will be released next May 2nd.

red wolfSynopsis…

Lupine Shifter Dimitri has always had to defend himself to other Shifters. As a red wolf, he’s not considered a “pure” wolf, and the battles have honed him into a tough fighter, a champion of the fight clubs. Jaycee Bordeaux, a leopard Shifter, is Dimitri’s staunchest defender and oldest friend. Dimitri is determined to turn that friendship into a mate bond.

Jaycee loves that idea, but she knows that a mate bond can’t be forced. And when Dimitri and Jaycee are called on to go undercover to protect collared Shifters, she knows the dangers ahead will make or break their future together.

That is it for this batch. Not sure how I am feeling about the Ghostwalker jump to hardcover, honestly. If you had asked me before the recent Feehan change in writing style (and a couple of disappointing Ghostwalker books), I would’ve been all over it like the fan-girl I have always been. Now? Not so sure it will be worth it, and that is painful to say.

    I’m a little behind now on Shifters Unbound, but that blurb sounds promising… like the covert Shifter Freedom operations are making progress again instead of stagnating… at 10 books I’d like to see things happening…

    Wird Sisters is a series that sounded interesting to me, but the love triangle(s?) pushed me away… I read the prequel novella tho a long time ago now…

    • kaleigha says:

      Yeah, they haven’t moved forward much on the overarching storyline in the Shifters Unbound series, and as much as I enjoy them the characters are starting to blend together for me.

      The “triangle” thing in Weird Girls isn’t really a triangle – more like the love interest and another guy. I kept up with the print releases, but by the end I was getting tired of the female lead constantly cooing over her “inner golden tigress”. That got old, fast.

      • Iain says:

        Thats the difference between Shifters Unbound and Psy-Changeling… even when I dont like a Changeling book, I can see where overarching progress is being made… Shifters not so much… altho, Sherrilyn Kenyon says the same thing, but at this point I usually think the progress being made is in the wrong direction or off on a tangent… so not all progress is good…

        Lack of Progress is also why I’m glad Chicagoland Vampires is wrapping up… I almost always enjoyed those books… but the city turmoil was slow to progress… all the stuff with the anti-Supe mayor and the evil liaison just dragged on and on

    The weird girls is an awesome series. I’m a huge fan. Read them all. There really isn’t a triangle. Celia has a close friendship with someone that pisses off her love interest at times. That’s not a triangle folks. And there is mega action and humor in these books. Books 2,4 and 5 are my favorites.–really awesome. The series is quite epic as a whole. And I’m glad the author is keeping it fresh by now moving in a new direction with a different sister’s POV, Taran. It picks up after the end of Celia’s last book, A Curse Unbroken. Of Flame and Light looks really good and I think Cecy Robson will deliver. Can’t wait!

    • kaleigha says:

      I was always surprised that the sisters didn’t get their stories earlier, actually. There were some great side characters that could’ve held their own book, too.

      • Iain says:

        Yea, back when there were only 2 books I was surprised it was more of the first sister and not the others… the title made you think the sisters would all get books… whereas I had the opposite problem with Baba Yaga… I thought they would all be about Barbara at first… not that a trilogy about all 3 was bad…

        I think I might have to give Wird Sisters another go… misunderstood the blurbs on the love triangle thing I guess… might try audio if they exist…

        • kaleigha says:

          I am looking forward to the Baba Yaga spin-off, but I am a bit torn. I am not a huge fan of a pregnant female lead, but we will how it goes.

          • Iain says:

            The sneak peak at the end of Wickedly Powerful seemed interesting… hopefully the POVs are pared down again… the Baba Yaga trilogy really ballooned by that last one…

            • kaleigha says:

              Yeah, there was a lot going on in it. I do wish it didn’t have the pregnant lead, but still going to check it out. If I hadn’t read the first three, that alone would make me not interested, but now I have to keep up.
