Picks of the Week

Pick of the Week…

My pick of the week this week comes from Deborah Blake and her Baba Yaga series. Wickedly Powerful is the third book of a trilogy about the mysterious witches of Russian lore, and it will be followed by a spin-off trilogy starting later this year.

The only thing more fiery than Bella Young’s red hair is her temper. She knows that a Baba Yaga’s power without strict control can leave the people she cares about burned, so to protect her heart—and everyone around her—the only company she keeps is her dragon-turned-Norwegian-Forest-cat, Koshka.

But when Bella is tasked with discovering who’s setting magical fires throughout Wyoming’s Black Hills, she finds herself working closely with former hotshots firefighter Sam Corbett—and falling hard for his quiet strength and charm.

Sam may bear the scars of his past, but Bella can see beyond them and would do anything to help him heal. Only before she can rescue her Prince Charming, she’ll have to overcome the mysterious foe setting the forest fires—a truly wicked witch who wields as much power and even more anger than Bella…

I am about half-way through the first book, and I am liking it so far. The prequel e-novella was a good set up for the series, but not completely necessary to get into the world-building.

Pick of the Week…

Well, people. Here’s hoping. Today is the day that the latest Ghostwalkers book from Christine Feehan comes out. This series is a long-time favorite of mine, as I have always said, but the change in tone and style in the last threw me off a little. I didn’t dislike it, but it was just…different. Anyways, I am hoping that Spider Game is a return to the old style. But good Lord, that cover still makes me cringe/snicker.

The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

So, are you ready for a new Ghostwalkers book? If it isn’t your pick of the week, which book is?
