New Series Alert

Since another Monday has rolled around, it is time to take a look at what new series are starting up this week. There is only one, and it comes from author Kelly Meding. Stray Magic is the first book of the Strays series.

stray magicSynopsis…

Shiloh Harrison was hoping for a few days off to recover from a particularly nasty assignment, preferably with the help of the talented hands (and, well, the rest of his body too) of her sexy boyfriend, Vincent. But when a group of vampires takes an entire trailer park hostage, there’s nothing to do but make her apologies and get to the scene.

Such is the life of a Federal Marshal in the Paranormal Investigators Unit.

Yet this isn’t like her typical track-and-nab case: something is going on that has vampires scared, and it takes all her strength not to imagine what could frighten such powerful creatures. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have that option. Her boss is MIA, someone is snatching vampires, and there’s a ticking clock that can only end one way: a bloodbath.

Unless she can stop it.

I am on a bit of a new-to-me author kick, and this sounds like something that I could get into. Just might have to break down and pick this one up, too. Will you be checking this new one out from Kelly Meding?

New Series Alert

Happy June, everyone, which is the weirdest thing to type. I can’t believe how fast this year is chugging along so far. We have one new series starting up this week, and it comes from Alexis Morgan. In Darkness Transformed is the first book of the Paladin Strike Team series.

in darkness transformedSynopsis…

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Paladin series returns with this sexy, original title featuring a man discovering the paranormal world of the paladins.

Dying hurts…but not as much as living.

Eli is lucky to survive the helicopter crash that killed the rest of the passengers. But when he notices his wounds healing before his eyes, it seems like his survival may have come from more than luck.

Safara knows what Eli does not—Eli is a paladin, a mortal enemy of someone like Safara, someone from Kalithia.

Still, after Eli saves Safara’s life, and Safara introduces Eli to a whole new world, they just can’t seem to treat each as enemies.

It is nice to see Alexis Morgan return to paranormal romance, since her last release was way back in 2015. Are you a fan of her Paladins series? Are you glad to see this spin-off

New Series Alert

Well, happy Monday. Let’s take a look at a new series starting up this week – Jenn Stark‘s Demon Enforcers. The first book is called Demon Unbound, and it will be released tomorrow.

demon unboundSynopsis…

None of us is without Sin…

After serving untold millennia as the leader of a demon special ops team with a brutal reputation for efficiency, Warrick of the Syx has seen it all, done it all, killed it all. Penance for his own damnation? Sure. But with the world running black with blood and magic, his skills are definitely in high demand.

This time, though…there’s a catch. And her name is Maria Santos. Beautiful, badass, and out for blood, Maria’s wrestling with her own dark secrets. The kind of secrets that call to Warrick’s twisted soul. A call he knows better than to answer.

Unfortunately, the dangerously tempting undercover cop is Warrick’s only ticket into the lockdown hellhole where a particularly vicious demon faction is boiling over, ready to unleash a new Armageddon on earth. If he wants to get at them, he’s going to have to take Maria with him.

But the second she gets caught in the crossfire between Warrick and the scum of eternity, well…

Hell hath no fury like a Demon Unbound.

I hunted around a while back to see if there were any early reviews floating around for this one, but I never did find any. I did check out the author’s website, though, and found that there are at least five more books due in the series…three of which will be coming by this fall.

Will you be checking out the Demon Enforcers? Did anyone try her Immortal Vegas series, and if you did, what did you think?

New Series Alerts

Howdy, all. Seems like my posting has been pretty scarce lately, but there are a few new covers and whatnot to highlight, a few blurbs to look at, and some new release dates to discuss, but that will all have to wait until after we look at the new series starting up this week.

The first one comes from Lara Adrian, and it from her Midnight Breed spin-off series, Hunter Legacy. Book one is called Born of Darkness.

born of darknessSynopsis…

As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman’s laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence.

Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Ash is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are lethal. But when a beautiful, secretive young woman on the run from dangerous enemies crosses his path in the middle of a dark night in the desert outside Las Vegas, Ash is drawn into a deadly game where trust can be an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.

And the second one comes from Shelly Laurenston. Hot and Badgered is the first book of her new Honey Badgers series, and I for one can’t wait. I loved the badgers in their few previous appearances in The Pride series, so this should be good. It is also my pick of the week, just because.

35534548Synopsis…

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.

Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up.

New Series Alert

After a pretty epic book hangover from last week, this week is a little easier to manage (still finishing up the last of my “big three” from last week, and they were all awesome). But debuting tomorrow is the first book of a new series from Rhenna Morgan, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on Guardian’s Bond as an ARC. This one caught my eye when I first saw the listing for it a few months back, and I am happy to say that I quite enjoyed it. I will definitely be picking up the next one (whenever that might be released).

guardian's bondSynopsis…

For decades, he’s been alone.
Now, she’s here. His fated mate.
His to win. To protect.
To provide for and pleasure.

Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.

Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.

Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions, and with his body.

Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.

Will you be giving this new series a shot? Have you read any of Rhenna Morgan’s other works, and if so, what did you think?

New Series Alert

Well, if any of you are like me, you are half excited for and half dreading tomorrow. Also known as my yearly “too many great books day”. I mean, really? Must three of my top series all have their once-a-year (or two) releases on the same day? Really? Anyways, there is more than just the big three coming out tomorrow, and one of them is from Ashlyn Chase. Hooked on a Phoenix is the first book of her new Phoenix Brothers series.

hooked on a phoenixSynopsis…

Misty Carlisle works as a bank teller in Boston’s financial district. She’s had more rotten luck in her life than most, except when her childhood crush shows up to cash his paycheck. Then her heart races and her mouth goes dry.

Gabe Fierro is a firefighter―and a phoenix. Like his brothers, his biggest challenge is finding a woman open-minded enough to accept a shapeshifter into her life. When his boyhood friend asks him to watch over his little sister Misty, he reluctantly agrees. But when the bank where she works gets held up, Gabe does everything he can to protect her. The two of them end up locked in the bank’s vault…where things get steamier than either of them ever imagined.

This one sounds like it could be fun. You know, after the “big three”. Ugh.

New Series Alerts

My days are all mixed up for some reason, and I almost forgot to make a new series alert post. Must be getting old. There are two to take a look at this week, and the first one comes from Shannon Mayer. Witch’s Reign is the first book of the Desert Cursed series.

witch's reignSynopsis…

I am cursed by the desert I was born in, and now I wander the space between the Walls meant to hold my kind-the supernatural kind- in.

If I can find a way out, if I can find a way to escape, perhaps I can outrun this curse. But that means passing through the Ice Witch’s realm-something no one has returned from.

But life has a funny way of changing directions on you. A freak accident. A child in danger. And a damn Warlock named Merlin who thinks he can manipulate me.

It looks like I’m about to start a journey I never planned on, to face a Witch who has never been challenged, in an attempt to survive a storm of magic, danger, and trickery.

And the second newbie is one I have mentioned before. Maria Vale starts her new Legend of All Wolves series tomorrow with the release of The Last Wolf.

the last wolfSynopsis…

For three days out of thirty, when the moon is full and her law is iron, the Great North Pack must be wild. Silver Nilsdottir is a lone runt with a crippled leg, facing a life of endless submission in the Pack.

Then Tiberius Leveraux stumbles wounded into their territory with a plea for protection. If Silver is to make a real place for herself, she must fight for Tiberius—her only chance at ever having a mate. And in the end, she is forced to shield all of them—the Pack, the land, and the man she loves—from ancient enemies.

Will you be picking up either of these? I have The Last Wolf on preorder, but Shannon Mayer is still on my “one day” list. The long, long one day list.

New Series Alerts

Well, I have been looking forward to this one for a while now. Of all of Christine Feehan‘s series, the books set in Sea Haven have become my favorites over the years (even though they have been getting progressively more tortured hero/heroine as they have gone on). That makes Judgment Road my pick of the week.

9780451488510_JudgmentRoad_FCO_mech.inddSynopsis…

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He’s a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can’t afford–until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin…

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper’s imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya’s touch is everything Reaper doesn’t want–and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club–his heart and his soul.

line

I haven’t really read much in the way of motorcycle series, so this will be new for me. Now I just have to try and remember who is who in the monster cast, which could be fun.

 

New Series Alerts

Just a quick note to start to mention a couple of scheduling changes. First off, Alyssa Day‘s January in Atlantis has been pushed back a couple of weeks from tomorrow’s original release date to January 30th. And Magic Triumphs from Ilona Andrews will also be a bit later than originally planned. Originally scheduled for a May 8th release, it will now be available on August 28th.

On to the new series starting up this week, which comes from author Thea Atkinson. Rune Thief is the first book of the Isabella Hush series.

rune thiefSynopsis…

What she steals may be priceless, but what she can’t see will cost her.

Isabella Hush may be a talented thief, but her past is about to creep up on her.

In need of quick funds to escape a nasty ex and his henchmen, she takes a chance on a rumored cache of Incan gold. But the heist goes terribly wrong and she ends up inebriated in a dark alley with a strange man dying at her feet.

Against her better judgement, she pauses to help, and out of habit, picks his pockets. Then the man disappears without a trace, leaving nothing behind but filthy cobblestones, and she begins to think she imagined it all.

That is, until the next morning when she finds the pilfered items in her apartment and a strange mark on her arm. Before long, she discovers there’s a supernatural realm seething unknown beneath her feet. And she just might long for the simple days of a heist gone bad…

Because now she’s not just being hunted by dangerous men, she’s being hunted by dangerous immortals.

 

New Series Alerts

Happy Monday, everyone. It is time to take a look at the new series starting up this week (which, surprisingly, are also the only new series I have listed for the whole month of December). This first one is actually a young adult release from Jennifer Estep. Spartan Heart is the first book of the Mythos Academy spin-off called Mythos Academy: Colorado.

spartan heartSynopsis…

New school year, same old problems . . .

At Mythos Academy, everyone knows exactly who I am: Rory Forseti, Spartan girl and the daughter of Reapers.

Even though I fought alongside my cousin Gwen Frost to save the mythological world from Loki and his evil Reapers of Chaos, I’m still the most hated girl at the academy because of all the horrible things my parents did. I had hoped that this school year would be different, but the other kids just won’t let me forget about my parents.

But something strange is going on at the Colorado Academy. First, I run into a Viking guy who dislikes me more than most. Then I notice some odd artifacts in the Library of Antiquities. And worst of all, I start hearing rumors about a new group of Reapers who can summon mythological monsters.

I might be the most hated girl at Mythos Academy, but I’m also the only one who can save it.

line

And the second newbie is from Nora Roberts. Year One is the first book of her Chronicles of the One series, which from what I understand isn’t so much a romance as a post-apocalyptic dystopia.

year oneSynopsis…

It began on New Year’s Eve.

The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.

Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.

As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.

In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.

The end has come. The beginning comes next.

I did enjoy the original Mythos Academy books, but I gave them up in an early book purge. Year One keeps calling to me, but if it isn’t much on the romance side then it might not be my thing. I guess I will have to keep an eye on the reviews to see what others think of it. Which of these will you be picking up? Any takers?
