March’s BotM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerSurprising probably no one, March’s book of the month as chosen by you was Anne Bishop‘s Vision in Silver. Aaand, as a result, it is going to be up for my next giveaway. There were still a couple of surprises for me, though, since I thought that Chloe Neill’s Dark Debt would get a few more votes – but to be fair, there were so many great books to chose from this month was brutal.

If you would like to win a hardcover copy of Vision in Silver, just leave a comment in the comment section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random through Random.org. Let’s end this Wednesday night at Midnight, Atlantic time. Good luck!

The Others freed the  cassandra sangue  to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.

Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.

For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

Absolutely a Not-New Series Alert and Giveaway

Monday is always the day I try and spotlight any new series that are starting up. There weren’t any for this week, so I thought I would give a shout-out to the very opposite of a new series instead. There are a few long-running series around, including Lora Leigh‘s Breeds and Christine Feehan‘s Carpathians, but I think the crown goes to J.D. Robb‘s In Death. Tuesday is the release day for Obsession in Death, which is book #40, yes FORTY, featuring Eve and Roarke. And the funny thing is, I haven’t heard anyone say they are tired of it yet.

giveaway bannerSo, I thought to celebrate that milestone, we could go way, way back to the beginning and do a throwback giveaway. If you would like to win a paperback copy of the very first In Death book, Naked in Death, just leave a comment in the section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random on Wednesday at Midnight (Atlantic time).

In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line–between seductive passion and scandalous murder…Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she’s seen it all–and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she’s going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire–and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it’s up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about–except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

Are you an In Death fan? How far do you see the series going before things wind down?

The Ruby Circle Giveaway Winner…

winner bannerYep, the final book of the Bloodlines series. I must be getting old, because it doesn’t seem possible that there have already been six books released.

February’s BoTM and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerThis book of the month turned out differently than any other one I remember. I think it is the first time that a young adult title has been chosen (it was also my pick), and it is the month where the “Other” category came in fourth…only ten votes behind the winner. Either way, Richelle Mead‘s sixth and final Bloodlines book, The Ruby Circle, got the nod for February. And I am still expecting an announcement of a Jill/Eddie series, maybe not six books but at least three. Or that could be my wishful thinking.

If you would like to win a hardcover copy of The Ruby Circle, just leave a comment in the comment section below. Contest open to all, winner to be chosen at random through Random.org. Let’s end this Wednesday night at Midnight, Atlantic time. Good luck!

Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.

Double Giveaway…an Old Favorite and a New

giveaway bannerWell, I am in the mood for another giveaway. Let’s try a double one this time, with an old favorite and a new book that has been getting quite good reviews. There were three biggies for me this month, but my most anticipated has to be Christine Feehan‘s Viper Game. The Ghostwalkers has been one of my favorites since way back when, and the two and a half year wait between installments makes me want this one even more (Seriously? Two and a half YEARS?). The second one is Hungry Like the Wolf, the first book of the new SWAT series by Paige Tyler. So, are you interested in enhanced soldiers and shifter cops? If so, leave a comment in the comments section…

GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she’s desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.

The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret . . . they’re a pack of wolf shifters.

The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn’t sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something . . . and she’s determined to find out what.

Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She’s smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she’s getting dangerously close to the truth—and perilously close to his heart…

Let’s shut this one down on…Friday night, Midnight (Atlantic Time). Ha! I remembered to add a closing date this time. Beauty. Good luck.

Bound by Flames Giveaway Winner…

winner bannerOnce again, I blanked out and forgot to put a cut-off to enter the giveaway, so I figure now is as good a time as any, since there haven’t been any new entrants since yesterday.

2015’s First Book of the Month and Giveaway…

giveaway bannerFirst off, Happy New Years to everyone. I have had a crazy December work wise, so hopefully I can get back to some posting routine now that the insanity is kaput for another year.

I have to admit, I was a bit surprised that Jeaniene Frost‘s Bound by Flames was chosen as January’s first book of the month. It isn’t because I don’t love Vlad as much as the next girl, but I figured that more might lean towards Burned or Viper Game, since it has been so very, very long since the last book for both of those series. But if you are interested in winning a print copy of Burned by Flames when it is released on January 27th, just leave a note in the comments section. Winner to be chosen at random, contest open to all. Good luck!

Play with fire, pay the price.

Leila’s years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin…

Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does…for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him—and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both…
