Nalini Singh - Rock Addiction

Woe is me.... yet ANOTHER Singh series that makes me crazy waiting for the next one.  And this one, I really, really, REALLY tried to resist... I lasted about a month...

Zachary Fox is a rock star in the hottest new band on the block - The Schoolboy Choir.  But he is not your average rock star.  He is intelligent and deep and though his love of control is evident in his position as lead singer, he isn't what most people would expect him to be.  He guards his personal life and does his best to stay off the paparazzi's radar.  But there is only so much one of the most recognizable faces in the world can do to hide in plain sight.  So the WORST thing he could imagine is to fall head over heels in love with a woman whose tragic past makes it her worst nightmare to EVER be in the public eye.  Molly Webster may be the one he has been waiting for, but the reality of his life may make it impossible for him to get the time to convince her of his sincerity.

Jessa Slade - Seduced by Shadows

Sometimes a series has all the right things and still just doesn't seem to work for me.  Since I had heard very good things about Jessa Slade and the Marked Souls series, I felt I needed to give it a try.

As Ferris Archer watches the sky, he realizes that another demon plans to possess a human.  The only question is, is it a good demon (or at least one trying for redemption) or a bad demon bent on destruction?  The only way to tell which it will be is to first be sure that Sera Littlejohn survives the possession and then kill her if the demon turns out to be bad.  Over the years, this has been one of the jobs that Ferris Archer has been forced to do.  He is also charged with saving humanity from the bad demons when they succeed in possessing humans and have to fight the demons and their destruction.  Since in the end, HE will never be redeemed, his immortality in this job has become something of a nuisance.

Rebecca Zanetti - Shadowed

In general, when a series loses steam, it gets upsetting.  But when a series gets better with each book, you don't want it to ever end! :)  When you KNOW a series has an end book, that can make things even worse!

Light hearted Jase was the most fun loving of the Karys brothers.  Until he was held prisoner and tortured by demons.  That time away from his family - as the prisoner of their most hated enemy - left him shattered.  But when he discovers that he could save his brother's sister-in-law by mating her, he sees a purpose in his life again.  He may not be able to help himself, but at least he could help someone else.   What he doesn't expect of the forced mating is the same sort of relationship that his brothers have with their mates - a passionate love affair.  But fate and surprises are still in store for Jase.

Title:  The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy
Author:  Julia Quinn
Series:  Smythe-Smith Quartet
Publisher: Avon
Release Date:  January 27

Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can't be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family's infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She's the type of girl you don't notice until the second—or third—look, but there's something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she's the one.

Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can't quite believe it's all true. When his proposal of marriage turns into a compromising position that forces the issue, she can't help thinking that he's hiding something . . . even as her heart tells her to say yes.

Tate Grafton has a tough exterior, but underneath she's kind, caring, and fiercely loyal.

When the mysterious woman disappears the next morning, Tate doesn't even know her name.

But when the closeted Laura romances an employee of the coffee shop her company is shutting down, things get suddenly complicated. Now, the lies she's told for years are beginning to unravel, and her biggest secret is about to be exposed.

Title: Saving Grace
Author: Jane Green
Publisher:  St. Martin's Press
Release Date: December 30


 Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect literary power couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, stylish, carefree, and a wonderful homemaker. But what no one sees, what is churning under the surface, is Ted’s rages. His mood swings. And the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon. When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, the house of cards begins to crumble and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until the perfect new assistant shows up out of the blue.  To the rescue comes Beth, a competent young woman who can handle Ted and has the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household. Soon, though, it’s clear to Grace that Beth might be too good to be true. This new interloper might be the biggest threat of all, one that could cost Grace her marriage, her reputation, and even her sanity.  With everything at stake and no one to confide in, Grace must find a way to save herself before it is too late.

Powerful and riveting, Jane Green's Saving Grace will have you on the edge of your seat as you follow Grace on her harrowing journey to rock bottom and back.

Elisabeth Naughton - Enraptured

There really is nothing better than finding a new series that really catches your interest!  That thrill of reading one book after another really is my favorite thing - because I hate having to wait!

Orpheus is an interesting character in the Eternal Guardians series.  The brother of Eternal Guardian Gryphon, Orpheus hasn't been a guardian.  Only one of the descendants of the heroes gets the tats and becomes a guardian.  But with Gryphon....out of the picture, Orpheus has inherited his tats and the role is now his whether he wants it or not.  He is not your typical guardian.  He uses magic and has some questionable associations in his family tree.  But one thing he has is that he wants to save his brother from the Underworld where he is being held.  Whether Orpheus realizes it or not, his hero mentality is strong and his honor in wanting to save his brother is proof of that in spades.  But Orpheus never could have predicted just where that quest would lead him - nor the woman from his past he would find along the way.

Lynn Kurland - Dreamer's Daughter

There is something to be said about a series that - as soon as the most recent book has been read, I immediately go back to the beginning and read the whole series again.  For me, the Nine Kingdoms series is one of those!

Runach is the Elven prince with a tragic past.  Having survived an experience that left his family in pieces and his own soul lost, he hoped for a life of obscurity.  Until he meets the ethereal Aisling and joins her on a quest to save her country.  Now, as the quest continues, Runach has regained much since his harrowing experience at the well.  His family is not as decimated as he once thought and his magic - a part of his very soul - is returned to him.  But to him, his magic is good for only one thing - protecting Aisling who has won his heart through her strength and her courage.   Though Runach cares, minimally, for the safety of the Nine Kingdoms, it is Aisling that he is concerned about the most.  Destiny has seemed to heap a lot on her fragile shoulders and what she needs most is a powerful ally to navigate the rivers of evil that run through the Nine Kingdoms.

Larissa Ione - Revenant (Audio)

Audio Corner - The last Friday of each month, a new audio book will be reviewed.

This month:  Revenant by Larissa Ione

Revenant is the twin brother of the Radiant, Reaver.  Since there can never be two Radiants (basically all powerful angels) at one time, with Reaver as the Radiant, that leaves the position of Shadow Angel for Revenant.  And it gives him a choice.  To follow his instincts and side with Satan or to help out Heaven.  The problem is that Heaven has pretty much turned there backs on him for his 5,000 years of existence.  And while Satan hasn't been too kind, at least he is the "devil you know" for Revenant.  He has no expectations and knows how Satan works.  So while Revenant may want to return to Heaven, he is a realist and knows that his future is probably in Sheoul.  Going along with that plan, he needs to be sure he has power there.  And to get power in Sheoul, he needs to be sure that Lucifer is not reborn - something his twin brother Reaver is working to do also, but for different reasons.

Title: Dreamer's Daughter
Author: Lynn Kurland
Series: Nine Kingdoms
Publisher: Berkley
Release date: January 6

The New York Times bestselling Nine Kingdoms Saga continues with the stirring conclusion to the epic journey of a weaver and an elven prince.

Aisling of Bruadair’s quest to restore her country’s rightful rulers to their throne has been long and difficult. Now, after a lifetime of lies, she’s confronted with an unexpected truth: Bruadair’s salvation may lie within her. But the path to harnessing her newly discovered magical gifts threatens to lead her back through a past that may well spell her death.

With his own magic restored, Rùnach of Ceangail has come to terms with the fact that the simple life he once coveted is no longer an option. Instead, he is determined to help Aisling fulfill her quest, even if his part of the bargain includes facing evil mages with power far greater than his own.

But once they reach Bruadair, Rùnach and Aisling discover that nothing is as it seems, and not only must they accept their past, they must also embrace their destiny—before the enemies drawing near succeed in extinguishing all the light in the world…

Revanant Blog Tour

We have TWO giveaways to go with this review and blog tour!  So be sure to enter the two Rafflecopters below!

I will admit.. I had  Revenant on my Kindle for about a week in October before I really settled down to read it.  Crazy, I know, right?  But the reason wasn't Ione or the Demonica series - I love them both.  The fact was that I just wasn't all that jazzed up for Revenant.  He had been a pretty big jerk in the final books of the Lords of Deliverance series and I just didn't care for him.  Sometimes, those become the BEST books.  The ones that you have very little expectations for because when they are good, they become great reads!

Revenant is the twin brother of the Radiant, Reaver.  Since there can never be two Radiants (basically all powerful angels) at one time, with Reaver as the Radiant, that leaves the position of Shadow Angel for Revenant.  And it gives him a choice.  To follow his instincts and side with Satan or to help out Heaven.  The problem is that Heaven has pretty much turned there backs on him for his 5,000 years of existence.  And while Satan hasn't been too kind, at least he is the "devil you know" for Revenant.  He has no expectations and knows how Satan works.  So while Revenant may want to return to Heaven, he is a realist and knows that his future is probably in Sheoul.  Going along with that plan, he needs to be sure he has power there.  And to get power in Sheoul, he needs to be sure that Lucifer is not reborn - something his twin brother Reaver is working to do also, but for different reasons.

 Excerpt:

“Sometimes,” Chace started, and his tone was cautious, “girls like her, girls like she used to be who turn into girls like she is now, get a guy’s attention, a good-lookin’ guy like that, and they can go—”
Deck cut him off. “Chace, you know Emme. You know that’s bullshit. She’s always known her own mind. And she’s always been cool. Even when she wasn’t a knockout, she wasn’t that kind of person.”

Synopsis 

It’s never too late to make the best impulsive decision of your life.

Jo Masters isn’t the party girl she used to be, but now that she’s a woman without obligations, she’s ready to recapture a little of her misspent youth. Her niece’s wedding, with its open bar and dark dance floor, proves to be the perfect opportunity to let loose.

Gregory Stark is just trying to make it through his son’s wedding day... and make some time with the gorgeous brunette on the bride’s side of the aisle. His kid’s wedding probably isn’t the best occasion to put the moves on the sexy woman, who introduces herself only as ‘Josie’, but his best friend is closing in on her too and he has to act fast. With a couple of tequila shots under his belt, Greg propositions Josie -- and neither wants to refuse.
