This Week’s Most Anticipated Release(s)
As a huge fan of Gena Showalter’s, I usually buy anything she releases. This is another one of those authors that never seem to write a bad book – they are all exceptional in their own way. This week sees the release of the second book in her Otherworld Assassin’s series, Black and Blue. The title is already being bandied about as one of the top reads of the year, so I definitely recommend picking up a copy! Releases October 22nd, so don’t forget to grab yours!…:)
About the series: The Otherworld Assassin’s series is a spin-off from the Alien Huntress novels, taking place in the same universe, just featuring the black ops section of AIR (Alien Investigation and Removal). Black and Blue is preceded by Last Kiss Goodnight.
Blurb for Black and Blue: HE IS EVERY WOMAN’S FANTASY . . .Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent . . . and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help—a woman with even more secrets than Blue.
SHE BECOMES HIS ONLY OBSESSION . . .Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breached her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe—even though he’d rather die than live without her. .
It has only been in the last week or so that htis author has been brought to my attention. Author of the Pendragon Gargoyle series, Sydney Somers has introduced creative paranormal series full of Authurian legend, gargoyle shape-shifters, along who knows what else…!…:) I have yet to readany of her books, but after attending her pre-release party on Facebook for the newest book, Primal Temptation, and reading a few excerpts – I can honestly say that I think I may have found a new author to add to my ‘favorites’ list! Primal Temptation is released on October 22nd.
About the series: Taking place around a family that owes it’s allegiance to King Arthur, they must recover six magical daggers and keep Excalibur from falling into the hands of Morgana. Primal Temptation is preceded by Primal Hunger, Primal Attraction, and Primal Pleasure.
Blurb for Primal Temptation: Condemned to darkness…tempted by passion. Enslaved by a vengeful goddess, forced to live on blood, Lucan can barely remember life as a knight of the Round Table. Yet when one woman’s touch awakens millennium-old feelings that tame the savage darkness within him, he has no choice but to deny their all-consuming passion—for her own protection. Cat shifter Briana Callaghan has watched all three of her brothers find their mates, but love isn’t in her future. Especially when her mate turns out to be a lethal mercenary…and the only man ever to break her heart. When she’s chosen to compete in the Gauntlet, an immortal death match, Briana realizes the prize—the sword Excalibur—is her only hope of severing the fierce bond that has the power to destroy her. Stunned to find themselves pitted against each other, Briana and Lucan quickly find that the only thing they’re fighting harder than their enemies is their sizzling, heartbreaking chemistry. But even if they survive the Gauntlet, claiming the woman he loves will be as impossible as letting her go. Warning: Contains adult language, skin-tingling sexual tension over a thousand years in the making, and a brutal warrior unable to resist the only woman to appeal to both the man and the monster within.
