Blurb From Goodreads:

In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy’s bond with the pack and her mate is broken, she’ll learn what it truly means to be alone…

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe…

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise…

My Review:

Well, that started off with a bang! There was maybe a page or two of mundane stuff at the start and then it was a roller-coaster ride of excitement. As usual, Ms. Briggs does not disappoint, and makes it worth the year long wait for the next installment. If I didn’t have a job or family, this book would’ve been read in one sitting. It was so hard to put down, especially since Mercy seems to always end up in some mess or another. What was fun about this adventure was that no one seemed to know the what’s, why’s, where’s, and who’s until the end. Definitely keeps you on your toes, and the edge of your seat, as the story unfolds. I don’t know how many times I thought “ooooh, and the plot thickens” or “OMG Mercy, how do you end up in these situations?” lol. Can’t wait for the next one, even though I have to.

Author Bio:

Head Shot of PattyPatricia is the #1 New York Times best selling author of the Mercy Thompson series and has written twenty four novels to date; she is currently writing novel number twenty five. She has short stories in several anthologies, as well as a series of comic books and graphic novels based on her Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series. Patty began her career writing traditional high fantasy novels in 1993, and shifted gears in 2006 to write urban fantasy. Moon Called was the first of her signature series about Mercy; the non-stop adventure left readers wanting more and word of this exciting new urban fantasy series about a shape-shifting mechanic spread quickly. The series has continued to grow in popularity with the release of each book. Patty also writes the Alpha and Omega series, which are set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson novels; what began as a novella expanded into a full new series, all of which debuted on the NY Times bestsellers list as well.

Patty was born in Butte, Montana, back in 1965. If you’re good at math, you’ll have deduced that she’s currently twenty-nine. In fact, she’s been twenty-nine for a while and has no intention of getting any older. Fiction authors don’t obey the laws of space and time, they invent them. Don’t argue, or she’ll make up a dragon right behind you . . .

Patricia was born book-privileged. Her mother was a school librarian, and she shared a room with an older sister who loved to read. Long after they had been put to bed, her sister would use the small night light to read Patty stories; her early favorites were fairy tales. Knights and castles, fair maidens, and monsters of every ilk became their nighttime companions.

Soon, Patty learned to read, and whole worlds were hers to explore. She rode on the Black Stallion, and flew the skies of Pern on a dragon. Sometime during that period she stumbled onto a treasure trove. Her older sister had begun collecting comic books; pristine originals were place in cellophane sleeves and organized in cardboard boxes. When her sister was away, they were removed by grubby fingers smeared with peanut butter and jelly for a clandestine read, returning with a faint smudges and wrinkled pages from reading under the covers. To this day, her sister periodically calls Patty and tells her how much more her original copies of the X-Men would have been worth if left pristine in their sleeves. The number keeps going up.

Patty is a prevarication professional. She lies for a living, telling whoppers and fibs so outrageous that people pay her to fib some more. Her only concession to honesty is that she tells people she’s lying to them, which is what separates a fiction author from a politician. She loves to play with her imaginary friends, and meeting with readers who know her imaginary friends is a treat. Her biggest complaint with writing is that she has far more ideas for stories than time to write them.

Patty and her family reside in Eastern Washington near Tri-Cities, home of Mercy Thompson; yes, it’s a real place! When not working on the next book, she can be found playing truant out in her horse pastures, playing with the newest babies.

My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.

I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

Still LOVE Damien and Nikki!! These little nuggets of their lives remind me why I adored their story so much. It’s so nice to visit old friends again, and I hope to be able to visit them often. This is one of those relationships that we all dream about; Damien is the ultimate book boyfriend (I call dibs lol) *dreamy sigh*.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Order. Attention to detail. Never leaving anything to chance. These are the qualities that make Riley Ness such a terrific federal agent . . . and a pain in the ass to everyone else. The only time Riley lets loose is when he’s hanging out with his closest pals. So when he’s thrown together with gorgeous, flighty Summer Sheridan, Riley’s brain tells him she’s a ticking time bomb—but his body doesn’t want to play by the rules.

Riley has to be the most irritating man Summer has ever met. The brooding hunk thinks he needs to teach her a few lessons about real life, while she’d rather show him how to enjoy it. But her BFF’s all but engaged to Riley’s best friend, and besides, their intense physical chemistry is all too real. Summer just needs Riley to try to meet her halfway and take a chance with the one thing that matters: his heart.

My Review:

I am loving the Naked Men! I can’t seem to get enough of them. Riley is a bit of a control freak, it’s based on safety but he’s wound just a bit too tight for me. Still can’t help but love him though. Summer is as carefree as the weather, spontaneous and unpredictable. I love how total opposite they are, but ultimately, it works. Still wish there was an actual blog for the guys that I could follow, but I’d probably never get anything done lol. It would be so much fun to hang out with this group of characters; they are more like a family than just friends. And the guys are just dreamy with awesome personalities. A must read for any romance lover!

My Review:

Ooooh, this was really good. Had no idea where it might go and I like that. I figured it was an HEA but at times I wasn’t sure. And I’m so glad to be back in this vampire world, I enjoyed the other books. Emily is a very strong character; she was willing to walk away from the man she’s loved for the past five years. All because he can’t get over the guilt he carries over his brother’s death. A very interesting story with the time travel, can’t wait to read more!!

Author Bio:

Author PhotoI confess I’ve had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I’ve been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King–and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire–one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire.

For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. My special vampire world, published by St. Martin’s Press, is introduced in the first book called, ASCENSION (12-28-2010). The second book, BURNING SKIES (May of 2011), opens up the world a little bit more. And even as I write this, I’m on the final draft of my third novel, WINGS OF FIRE (September of 2011). What a thrill it has been to live with my ascended vampires through the creation of this extraordinary, multi-dimensional world!

For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension.

With every hope you’ll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

A girl goes on trial for murder, but it’s the judge who committed the crime.

Johanna Kozak is not unaccustomed to the harshness of living in a Supernatural world. When her best friend is brutally murdered by the judge at her trial, Johanna must find solace in being a martyr for the only cause she has ever known. Her days are marked by visits from a mysterious servant boy, and visions of the past that haunts her. Meanwhile, her trial commences among the Council, and lines are being drawn. Her judge knows Johanna did not act alone, and if her co-conspirators aren’t careful, this prison break is about to land them all belly up in the heart of the beast.
Wrought with secrets, lies, heartbreak, and betrayal, will Johanna find peace in her ruling, or do the gallows await them all?

Blurb From Goodreads:

New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves…

After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders—a primitive and lethal form of the Others—the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man’s-land beyond their borders—and the darkness…

As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery’s shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.

With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end—with her standing beside a grave

My Review:

This is one of those series that just sticks with you. The world is so unique with characters that are just as unique, I just want to move in and never leave. I love the relationship between Meg and Simon, it’s mesmerizing. Simon is more wolf than man so he doesn’t understand how human relationships work, then throw in Meg with her naivety and innocence. So many cute moments between them as they both try and figure it out. Can’t help but love watching it happen, I laugh and melt. I think the best part is that their relationship really isn’t the focus, it’s what’s going on around them. It’s a love story but it’s not at the same time. Dreading the wait for the next book but can’t wait to get my hands on it!!

Author Bio:

Anne BishopOnce upon a time…

Have you heard this story before?

You have.

All right, then.

Oh, you want another story.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who liked to write stories. So she did. And she had fun.

Then, one day, a thought got stuck in her head that if she couldn’t write a really greatstory, there wasn’t much point in writing stories at all. So she stopped writing.

She was young and didn’t know any better.

The girl went out into the world to make a living and do some growing up. And this was fine and necessary.

Then, one day, several years later, a story poked its little head up out of the creative reservoir and said, “Hello?”

It was a little story, and it looked rather forlorn, so the girl shaped it with words as best she could so that it could go out into the world.

The story, who was very happy about this, went back to the creative reservoir to pack its bags for its adventure into the world and told all its friends about the girl.

Not long after that, another story poked its little head up out of the creative reservoir and said, “Hello?”

So the girl shaped it with words as best she could. And the story was very happy. So were the other stories that came after that one.

They were little stories. They were very polite.

During the years when the girl was shaping these stories, she began reading books and magazines about writing (and, later on, about organization and time management). As she worked and read, she became more skillful and could shape bigger stories.

Then came the day when something tapped her on the shoulder. When she turned around, it wasn’t a polite little story, looking forlorn and saying, “Hello?” It was a novel that kissed her hand, smiled at her, and said, “Hello. We’re going to be very good friends for quite some time.”

So that is the story of how the girl ended up sharing her living space with, among other things, an overabundance of paperwork and a great many characters.

You want mundane data too? In that case…

New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop is the winner of the RT Book Reviews 2013 Career Achievement Award in Sci-Fi/Fantasy. She is also the winner of the William L. Crawford Memorial Fantasy Award for the Black Jewels Trilogy. Her most recent novel is Marked in Flesh, the fourth book in Anne’s urban fantasy series set in a re-imagined Earth. When she’s not communing with the Others, Anne enjoys gardening, reading, and music.

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince’s murder.

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

Even after reading the last word there are so many questions that I can’t wait to get the answers to.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Sylvia Noe and Josiah Wakeham are a mated pair.
Totally embarrassing, right?
But kind of dreamy, too.

Too bad his werewolf hunter mother won’t stop trying to poison him with wolfsbane tea, or casting weird spells on him in her attempts to turn him back into a human. As if Valentine’s Day isn’t tricky enough—there’re roses and chocolates and jewelry and the big school dance to think about.

It’s the most romantic night of the year, but Sylvia and Josiah might have bigger things to worry about, like how to keep his mother from kidnapping him and sending him off to boarding school in Connecticut. Like, who does that? Even a silver plated axe isn’t enough motivation to make Josiah want to go.

Then there’s the weird fight happening between their best friends. Love should be in the air, but it looks like it’s filled mostly with silver crossbow bolts and misunderstandings. How lame is that?

C.M. StunichC.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.

She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.

Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
