Release Day Euphoria: Born of Silence by Sherrilyn Kenyon

at 1/29/2013 05:00:00 AM 0 comments

I know it's been awhile peeps, but I have midterms this week so I gotta keep this short and sweet. It's release day for the talented Sherrilyn Kenyon's book, Born of Silence. This book is number 5 of her The League series. I am a big fan of her Dark Hunter series as well as this series. I have read the first 2 books, but I have yet to start the 3rd and 4th. I hope I get to them first before starting the 5th. So here's a little description of what this book is about....

Death Stalks Them All... 

Kere is the second most infamous member of the shadow organization known as Sentella. An explosive engineer who strikes terror into the hearts of the League, the bounty on his head is truly staggering. No one knows his true identity. 

The daughter of a traitor, Zarya Starska grew up hard on the back streets of hell- her family hunted to the brink of extinction. But Zarya dreams of a different life and a different world. A world where the harsh hand of the Caronese emperor doesn’t destroy his subjects. As a Resistance leader, her goal is to topple the government that needlessly ruined the lives of her family and comrades-in-arms. In this deadly quest, the only person she can trust is a mysterious man known only as Kere. 

By The Light Of Day... 

Kere has a dark secret and a brutal past. As he aids the Resistance, he’s actually working to bring down his own family- the Cruels- so named for the viciousness in their blood that runs so deep, no other name would do. Born and bred from one of the oldest and noblest families in the United Systems, Kere’s real name is Darling Cruel. And the one thing he wants most is to see his uncle, who stole the crown by murdering his father, pay for his crimes. 

If You Tell A Lie Long Enough, It Becomes The Truth... 

In order to protect his mother from execution, Darling’s entire life has been built on a lie that he dare not breathe a contrary word about. His hands tied by his uncle’s cruelty. No one has ever seen the real him. No one except Zarya. She’s the only person he’s ever fully trusted with the truth. But when she betrays him by allowing a weapon he designed solely for her to be used against him, all bets are off. 

The Hero Is Now The Monster... 

Betrayed to the deepest level, Darling becomes an enemy even worse than his uncle. His goal is not only to reign, but to kill every Resistance member he can find. He won’t rest until all of them are dead and that includes Zarya. 

The Twisted Hand Of Fate... 

Zarya is the only hope to reach the heart of the man her people once considered their ally. A man who hates her with a fury so great that she knows it’s just a matter of time before he kills her. But if she can find the part of him that once trusted her, the part of him that once loved her, she might be able to save not only her own life, but those of her people. 

It’s an impossible mission. 

Too bad she doesn’t play the odds.

Doesn't that description give you the chills? I hope you get yourself a copy and tell me all about it. I will, of course, post my own review when I get my copy in the mail. Bye for now, peeps! >3<

Release Day Euphoria: The Temptation of Your Touch by Teresa Medeiros

I know it's been awhile peeps, but I have midterms this week so I gotta keep this short and sweet. It's release day for The Temptation of Your Touch by Teresa Medeiros. I think this book is a stand-alone book since there is nothing to link it to a previous series. So here's a little description of what this book is about....

Maximillian Burke has always prided himself on being the man every mother would want her daughter to marry. But after his scoundrel of a brother makes off with Max’s bride, Max discovers it’s more satisfying to be a rogue than the perfect gentleman. Forced to flee London after a duel gone wrong, he seeks refuge at Cadgwyck Manor on the lonely coast of Cornwall, a place as wild and savage as his current temper. The tumbledown manor comes complete with its own ghost, but oddly enough, it’s not the White Lady of Cadgwyck who haunts Max’s heated dreams—but his no-nonsense housekeeper.

The last thing housekeeper Anne Spencer needs is a new master, especially one as brooding and gorgeous as the Earl of Dravenwood. Even as she schemes to be rid of her new employer, she finds herself irresistibly drawn into his strong, muscular arms. When Max vows to solve the mystery of Cadgwyck’s ghost, he doesn’t realize it will put both of their hearts at risk and tempt them to surrender to a pleasure as delicious as it is dangerous.

I hope you get yourself a copy and tell me all about it. I will, of course, post my own review when I get my copy in the mail.

I know it's been awhile peeps, but I have midterms this week so I gotta keep this short and sweet. It's release day for the fabulous Victoria Alexander's book, The Importance of Being Wicked. It's a new book in what I hope is a new budding series. I have no doubt that it's a going to be good read. So here's a little description of what this book is about....

In this dazzling new novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander welcomes you to Millworth Manor, a delightful English country estate where love is always perfectly at home…
For Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, finding a prospective bride always seemed easy. Perhaps too easy. With three broken engagements to his name, Win is the subject of endless gossip. Yet his current mission is quite noble: to hire a company to repair his family’s fire-damaged country house. Nothing disreputable in that—until the firm’s representative turns out to be a very desirable widow. 

Lady Miranda Garrett expected a man of Win’s reputation to be flirtatious, even charming. But the awkward truth is that she finds him thoroughly irresistible. While Miranda resides at Millworth to oversee the work, Win occupies her days, her dreams…and soon, her bed. For the first time, the wicked Win has fallen in love. And what began as a scandalous proposition may yet become a very different proposal…

Also, please be advised that this book shares the same title as Miranda Neville's  own The Importance of Being Wicked. I hope you get yourself a copy and tell me all about it. I will, of course, post my own review when I get my copy in the mail.

Blog Tour Post: Ember's Curse by Gena D. Lutz

at 1/20/2013 11:00:00 PM 1 comments

Hello Peeps! I got a special blog tour post for you today. Today’s special spot is for Ember’s Curse by Gena D. Lutz. I read the first chapter of this book and I’m super excited to get my copy in the mail. So here's a post to promote this awesome book. :D

Book Synopsis:

For Prime-Werewolf Ember Stilwell, life has been far from normal. Decades ago, a vengeful Witch cursed her Pack, leaving the women of her line incapable of feeling love. When an organized group of immortal killers begin to stalk and capture wolves from her pack, she sets out on a path fraught with danger. Just when it seems the world as she knows it will be changed forever, she meets Collin, an Alpha Werewolf with a body built for sin. As her heart begins to heal, she comes to find that the demons of her past are not nearly as dangerous as the nightmares she will be forced to face in her future. Can finding her true love conquer all? Or will the ability to feel for the first time be overshadowed by losing everything else she holds dear?

~*~*~*Ember’s Curse Excerpt*~*~*~

"Feed from me," he urged.

I shook my head against him and groaned. I didn't want to hurt him. I had never done this before, so I had no clue how much control I would have over my vampire self. What if I lost it and accidentally drained him?

"I want to do this for you. Let me be the one to ease your pain," he said, pulling my face closer. My lips pressed up against him and I could feel a thumping pulse flutter underneath his skin. My tongue flicked out, tasting the salt and sweetness of him. It made me want to bite down hard; to take every bit of him into me that I possibly could. Somehow, I just knew that he would be the perfect filler of my needs. My ambrosia.

I guess one little sip couldn't hurt, said a voice inside my head. The voice sounded strangely like my own. My fangs began to pulse and ache, and before I could stop myself, they sank deep into Collin’s neck. He grabbed hold of the back of my head with a groan. I wrapped my leg around his waist and pressed myself up against his hard length, pinning him under me. It fulfilled my sexual hunger for him and the need to keep him still while I drank. 

With his free hand, he pushed my ass down against him. Heat exploded from between my legs and built up with every one of his delicious thrusts. "My God, that feels so good," Collin said, still holding my mouth to his open wound. "Suck harder."

Author’s Bio:

So I guess this is where I am suppose to put a little something about myself. I could go on and on about major accomplishments...or...I can simply say...I am a wife and mother. It's as easy as that. Now...I know what you’re thinking "This person sounds boring"...am I right? Well this is where things get a bit more interesting. I also like to create worlds, and in those worlds, I morph into the ultimate Puppet Master. I meticulously pull the strings on dozens of fantasized characters. I make them dance for me...love for me...and when I am in a particularly feisty mood, I even make one or two of them kill for me. Then, after play time is over...I emerge from my land of make believe just in time...to do the dishes.
