The Project Rebellion Series: Perfect Mate/Blood Mate by Mina Carter

Perfect Mate Cover

This series has just caught my attention, and I am looking forward to getting started on it….There are two books out now, and one upcoming – all with an interesting twist….:)

Title: Perfect Mate (Project Rebellion Book #1) 

Blurb:  Monsters do exist…and they’re the good guys.  Lillian Rosewood leads an ordinary, boring life working as the manager of a psychiatric hospital. The highlights of her day, other than her skinny hot chocolate, are the hunky guards who work in the secure section. Until a late-night emergency is wheeled in.

Captain Jack Harper is insane, drop-dead gorgeous…and just had his abdomen shredded. Despite the fact they’re not an emergency room, Lillian can’t turn him away and risk a death on her hands. Unable to get the handsome soldier out of her mind, Lillian sneaks into the restricted area to check on him. What she finds is beyond belief. Somehow Jack has managed to heal himself from a near-fatal wound in mere hours.

When one of the doctors, Walker, attempts to rape her, things go from bad to worse. In the blink of an eye, Jack is loose and Walker is dead… and Lillian must accept a truth about her rescuer that will change her world forever. What if the patients aren’t insane? What if their stories of secret government experiments and monsters are true?

Warning: Contains blood, mayhem and nude werewolves operating heavy weaponry. Large amounts of sarcasm and smart-ass vampires may offend some readers. No civilian hospital staff were harmed in the making of this story.

Blood Mate CoverTitle:  Blood Mate  (Project Rebellion Book #2)

Blurb:  The only thing they have in common? Really…sharp…teeth.  Major Antonia Fielding has one goal: to escape the clutches of the Project. With the blood-virus infecting her system, though, a body bag is likely her only way out. Until her boss lets slip that he may just have a cure for her—if she brings in an escaped Lycan.

Can she trust him? Now there’s the million-dollar question. Then again, can she afford not to take that chance?

Darce Foster was a Special Forces soldier, until the Project got hold of him. Now he’s a Lycan, a lab-created werewolf, this close to escaping his creators—until another of the Project’s experiments stops him in his tracks. Not because she has the power to hold him, but because he instantly recognizes the impossible. The vampiress is his mate.

Allowing her to bring him in is his only choice—and possibly the last mistake of his life.

Enemies or lovers, it doesn’t matter. When they discover that the Project is hiding yet more secrets, they must work together to bring it down…or die in the attempt.

Warning: Contains a cocky wolf who won’t take no for an answer, an ice-queen losing her cool and a pack full of hunky werewolves bent on rescue. And zombie spidermen.

Not Dead Enough Cover

Title:  Not Dead Enough  (Project Rebellion SARA Book #1)

Release Date:  November 21, 2014

Blurb :  There is life after death, unfortunately for them, it’s the same one… Brett Perkins was a soldier, until the Project killed him. Now he’s finding that life after death isn’t so hot. With the Project base destroyed, he and his team have been tasked with running down and destroying a group of rogue Bloods. Unfortunately the vampires always seem to be one step ahead. Then they start kidnapping women…

Thanks to her soon-to-be ex-husband, Julia Collier is despised and reviled in the small town of Greenwood. His stories have painted her as everything from an air-headed gold-digger to a nymphomaniac serial killer. She can’t even shop in the local store without suffering abuse from her fellow townsfolk, and that’s before the late night calls or her ex’s bully-boys following her.

When her home is broken into, Julia assumes it’s her husband making good on his threats to ‘deal with her for good’. She never dreams that it will lead a descent into another, terrifying world. One inhabited by werewolves, vampires…and zombies. Or that zombies could be so damn hot. Espeically one certain example who makes her heart pound and all her common sense disappear over the horizon. After all, what woman in her right mind would fall for the undead?

Unless the undead aren’t dead at all, but something more than human, from a world she’ll need all her wits and new abilities to survive the battle between the undead…and the dead.

Project Rebellion: They’re not heroes, they’re something else… They’re SARAs and they’re about to kick ass.

This Week’s Most Anticipated

51cJbMJPwPLI’ve had this one on pre=order for weeks, and I can’t wait to read it!  Darkness by Laurann Dohner is out today, September 23rd – and is a definite must grab!

About the series:  The New Species are genetically altered beings that are part human and part animal.  Raised in labs, most of them have previously only been known by a number, instead of names – and experimented upon by the scientists that made them.  Slowly more and more of them are being freed, and creating their own “communities” away from the humans.  And when the mating instinct hits them, no other female will do!  Darkness is preceded by Fury, Slade, Valiant, Justice, Brawn, Wrath, Tiger, Obsidian, Shadow, Moon, and True.

Blurb from Darkness:  Kat’s boss wants dirt on the NSO. She is sent to Homeland undercover but everything goes wrong as soon as she enters the front gates. She is arrested by a big, powerful, sexy New Species but she is not frightened. He turns her on and things heat up fast between them. Now, she just hopes he doesn’t break her heart. 

Darkness admires Kat’s courage but he cannot trust anything she says. He hasn’t been with a female for years because he knows he is too damaged. He is not mate material, despite his desire to possess her in every way. Darkness fears losing control—the one thing that defines his life. He doesn’t think he can tear down the protective walls he’s built, even for her.

Inside Scoop: Kat never realized how much fun handcuffs and dominant males could be until she discovered her kinky side through Darkness’ need for control.

This Week’s Most Anticipated

9142guXCwxL._SL1500_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.

71hhltkIunL._SL1500_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!

This Week’s Most Anticipated Release(s)

I’m sure one of the books that I am looking forward to this week is on many of your lists as well!  Larissa Ione is one of my favorite authors, and I can’t wait to pick up my copy of Reaver, the next installment in her Demonica/Lord of Deliverance series – and the 10th book in the series.  If you are familiar with her series at all, I am sure you are looking forward to how she spins the tale of these two less-than-angelic angels!

reaver_125About the series:  In a dark battle between angels and demons, Ione take us into a world of battle and death, torture and….love?  Reaver is preceded by Pleasure Unbound, Desire Unchained, Passion Unleashed, Ecstasy Unveiled, Sin Undone, Eternal Rider, Immortal Rider, Lethal Rider, and Rogue Rider.

Blurb from Reaver:  WARRIOR OF HEAVEN…Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he’s agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before . . . to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.  ANGEL OF HELL…Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she’s doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan’s lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld’s darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel’s blood . . .
