This Week’s Most Anticipated
This week marks the release of Darkness Bound by J.T Geissinger. I first stumbled on this author about a year ago, and have nothing but impressed by all of her works I have read since then, and I’m sure this one will be no exception.
About the series: Deep within the primeval forests of southern England, a race of beautiful, savage shape-shifters lives hidden from the everyday world. The Ikati are bound together by ancient bloodlines and a ruthless code of secrecy that punishes traitors with death. Darkness Bound is preceded by Shadow’s Edge, Edge of Oblivion, and Rapture’s Edge, and Edge of Darkness.
Blurb for Darkness Bound: Tough, smart, and seriously ambitious, reporter Jacqueline “Jack” Dolan despises the secretive clan of shape-shifters known as the Ikati—and has become determined to destroy them. After she writes an editorial arguing for their extermination and turns public opinion against them, the Ikati vow to fight back. They plot to send one of their own to seduce the reporter, then blackmail her into writing a retraction. Women practically fall at the feet of hulking, handsome Hawk Luna, and Hawk relishes the idea of conquering and destroying the fiery redhead who’s caused so much trouble for his kind. The last thing he expects is to develop real feelings for her, but their liaison awakens a hunger in him that he cannot deny. He kidnaps Jack and brings her to his Amazon jungle colony, but the two lovers are soon embroiled in deadly colony politics and threatened by a looming global species war. As the danger around them grows closer, Jack and Hawk’s forbidden passion may build a bridge between two ancient enemies—or cost them both their lives.

Another release I am eagerly awaiting is Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton. After having read the first book in this series, Wallbanger, how could I not pick this one up? Wallbanger was a big hit with me, and I hope I feel the same on this one! Which looks promising since the couple of reviews that have already trickled in are all five stars!
About the series: A light, sexy, laugh-out-loud romance between Caroline and Simon – who meant thanks to his athletic prowess and nocturnal activities…and paper thin walls! Rusty Nailed is preceded by Wallbanger.
Blurb for Rusty Nailed: Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing—but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!
