Well, maybe I should say two new releases and a mass market paperback re-release, but that makes the post title too darn long. Oh, and neither of them are for Munro. Just saying.
First on to some site business. I did a scan of what was coming out in May, and I came across a huge pile of new releases to add. I think I might’ve put something like 20 more books on the list for next month, so if you are looking for some preorders you can head over HERE and see if anything catches your eye.
Oh! And thanks to Redbutterfly, who caught me up on the next Fever book from Karen Marie Moning. Kingdom of Light and Shadow will be a Spring 2020 release. I had started to think that maybe she was done with this series, honestly, so it was a surprise to find out about this one. Another surprise was that it is about Mac. Again. Hm, thought that arc was done already – a couple of times. But I guess things have really changed for her since the last Mac and Barrons book, so it should be a wild ride.
Anyhow, I have three new covers to show for today. This first one is for the mass market paperback version of J.R. Ward‘s The Savior. It keeps the same tone and coloring as the hardcover, but gives us a different shot. The paperback re-release will be out on September 24th.
In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.
Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.
As Murhder and Sarah’s destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers… or resume his lonely existence forevermore?
And these next two covers are from G.A. Aiken/Shelly Laurenston. The first one is for The Blacksmith Queen, the first book in The Scarred Earth Saga, which will be released on August 27th.
The Old King Is Dead
With the demise of the Old King, there’s a prophesy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills. Bad news for the king’s sons, who are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers. But for blacksmith Keeley Smythe, war is great for business. Until it looks like the chosen queen will be Beatrix, her younger sister. Now it’s all Keeley can do to protect her family from the enraged royals.
Luckily, Keeley doesn’t have to fight alone. Because thundering to her aid comes a clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amichai. Not the most socially adept group, but soldiers have never bothered Keeley, and rough, gruff Caid, actually seems to respect her. A good thing because the fierce warrior will be by her side for a much longer ride than any prophesy ever envisioned …
And this last one is from Shelly Laurenston‘s Honey Badgers series. Badger to the Bone is the third book in the series, and it will be released on March 31st, 2020.
She’s the woman he’s been hired to kidnap. But ZeZé Vargas has other ideas . . . like getting them both out of this nightmare alive. Just one problem. She’s crazy. Certifiably. Because while he’s plotting their escape, the petite Asian beauty is plotting something much more deadly…
Max “Kill It Again” MacKilligan has no idea what one of her own is doing with all these criminal humans until she realizes that Zé has no idea who or what he is. Or exactly how much power he truly has.
But Max is more than happy to bring this handsome jaguar shifter into her world and show him everything he’s been missing out on. A move that might be the dumbest thing she’s ever done once she realizes how far her enemies will go to wipe her out. Too bad for them Zé is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her alive . . . and honey badgers are just so damn hard to kill!
I just had a weird, random thought. Did anyone else notice that the Honey Badger books are about the MacKilligan sisters…but it all dudes on the cover? Huh. Strange.
