Skin Dive by Ann Aguirre

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: 7/5/11

Pre-order Kindle

She can’t remember what home is like

Gillie is a fugitive. She has the scars to prove her long-term incarceration, but it’s the kind of story that would land her in another cell if she tried to present it to the authorities. Now that she’s free, she’s determined never to be bound again. She has a powerful healing gift—and a fierce resolve never to use it, unless it’s her choice.

 

He can’t remembering wanting anything more

Taye is keeping a powerful secret. He cannot remember everything about his past, but he knows he used to be homeless, one of the crazy-tinfoil-hat-wearing brigade. He knows his own family threw him away when he became too much trouble. He also knows he has a limited amount of time to make sure Gillie gets the life she’s always wanted. It just hurts because he can’t be a part of it. Because his ability is killing him, and there’s nothing he can do about it.

 

But he’s determined not to seduce her, and to do one thing right before he dies–save Gillie Flynn. But she’s busy making plans of her own…

There isn’t much these days that make me scream ohmygodohmygodohmygod I love this series. Buuuuut, hot damn, we like this series. Thea Harrison is going on my auto buy list.

Able to wield thunder and lightning, wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the wyr’s best weapons. And he’s the one sent to protect Tricks, heir to the Dark Fae throne, when she’s almost assassinated in Chicago.

Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Genre: Young Adult

Release Date: 7/26/11

Pre-Order Kindle

Move over Gin, there’s a new book in town. Can’t get enough of Estep’s Assassin’ series so I’m excited to get my hands on her latest young adult book. Yeah, I’ll even go pg-13 instead of my usual nc-17 for this author.

 

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad­emy — a school of myths, magic and war­rior whiz kids, where even the lowli­est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spar­tan guy in school, also hap­pens to be the deadliest.

 

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jas­mine Ash­ton was mur­dered in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties. Then, some­one stole the Bowl of Tears, a mag­i­cal arti­fact that can be used to bring about the sec­ond Chaos War. You know, death, destruc­tion and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m deter­mined to find out who killed Jas­mine and why – espe­cially since I should have been the one who died..

Skin Game by Cara McKenna – SHB Highly Recommends

in 4 Star Review, Erotic Romance 8 Comments

Kindle $9.29 (cheaper at Ellora’s Cave)

Genre: Exotica (Happy For Now)

Publisher Ellora’s Cave

Seven days, seven challenges. Twelve strangers. Eight thousand cameras. Only one winner.Welcome to The Ant Farm, a social study in the wilds of interior Alaska, documenting the dynamics between a dozen competitors as they take part in a series of physical and psychological face-offs. With five hundred grand up for grabs at the end of the battle royal, the stakes are high and the tension blazing.Could the seemingly mild-mannered nice guy win it all? The cutthroat alpha female? The strongest or the smartest, the idealist or the cynic? It’s anyone’s guess as teams are undercut by alliances, loyalties tendered and tested, and passions enflamed by both affection and animosity.In this contest where even knives and guns are fair game, sex may prove the most dangerous weapon of all.Reader Advisory: This book features the recreational use of illicit substances, and non-explicit references to childhood abuse and trauma. It also features an unlikely mix of romance, lust and hate-sex, plus a ton of way crazier crap that the author delights in not preparing you for

 

This author has been on my must buy list ever since Fiction  Vixen and Dear Author reviewed Willing Victim.  So, when I saw this mentioned on Smexybooks May Rec list I immediately pulled up Amazon on my work computer and hit my favorite button ‘But with 1 click’.

Skin Games is about 12 strangers that agree to a psychological experiment to win half a million dollars. Think Survivor but muy creepier.

 

Chole and Daisy – Cameras 3240,3249

Daisy looks up at her as Pike disappears. “Got anything else you need fillin’, Chole?

She rolls her eyes.” Not by you, redneck.”

“What if you had to bed me to win it?” He asks.

She stops and stares at him, a curious smile curling her wide lips. “I’d drink a handle of gin and f*ck that shit-eating grin right off your face. Then I’d take a decon shower and dance my ass all the way to the bank.”

Wow, I could not put this book down and I mean that literally – in the bathroom, at work sneaking reads on my Kindle app, and my mommy pump breaks. The way McKenna wove in each character point of view with the experiments/games really had me on the edge of my work chair.  The main characters out of the twelve are Daisy (southern bad boy, yes he is a dude), Mac (young girl with a huge crush on Daisy), Chole (the tough as nails photographer), Pike (half Korean military doctor), and Ian (Scottish bad boy aka chain smoker/master manipulator).  The story reveals, slowly, each person’s point of view so you ‘think’ you have a handle on each character.

If you are hoping for a romance you just aren’t going to get it here.  At times I thought I had figured out who would end up with who even until the end, which I was a wee disappointed, but hot damn if Cara Mckenna didn’t keep me on my reading toes.

My fav character was Ian. He was just so conniving but as each game commenced we learned more and more about whom each person was, especially the guess Who Did This Game.  I was extremely disappointed on some loose ends about him – I felt like we were left hanging on they why’s of some of his behaviors and I wanted some answers, damn it.

 

Although there isn’t as much sexy time as I would have expected in an Exotica book from Ellora’s Cave (wink wink), Skin Game even with some of my disappoints is by far one of my favorite reads this year – an intelligent psychological thriller-esk romance.

Dear Online Diary,

I, book addict that I am, have only read 5 books in the past month (sobs quietly in the corner).  I feel shame, really I do.

 

Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison

Kindle

#1 in Elder Races Series

There is not much that rocks our paranormal romance world these days but Dragon Bound managed to do just that.

How can I not heart a book where the main hero calls the heroine a little shit. Can’t wait for book 2 which is due out in August of 2011.

 

Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful – and passionate – of the Elder races.

 

As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they’ve ignited in each other.

 

Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave – although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul ..

 

 


Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan

Genre: Warlord Romance (yes, we made that up)

#1(Best in the Series IMO)

Kindle $6.99

This made our Warlord Lovin list a couple a weeks ago. Man, if you are addicted to Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones you NEED TO READ THIS ONE. It will have you running to Michael’s Craftstore to make your own token and pop a tent.  Ubber awesome warlord romance story.

 

Blurb:

SHE MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN HER PEOPLE AND HER FREEDOM…

Xylara is the Daughter of the Warrior King, Xyron. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to the warring Firelanders.

Before she was old enough for a marriage-of-alliance, Xylara was trained as a healer. She can’t usurp her brother or negotiate a peace–but she can heal the brave ones injured in battle.

But not only her countrymen are wounded, and Xylara’s conscience won’t let Firelander warriors die when she can do something to save them. She learns their language and their customs and tries to make them as comfortable as possible, despite their prisoner-of-war status.

 

She never expects that these deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire. Xylara knows must trade the life she has always known for the well-being of her people, and so she becomes…


Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

Kindle

#10 in Psy-Changeling Series

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Ok, we admit to maybe not liking the past 5 books in this series and…skimming, yes lots of skimming.  That being said since book 1 we have been waiting with waiting online breaths to get our hands on Hawke’s HEA.  Was it worth buying and skimming 9 books, heck yes!  There are a few scenes that’ll really tug on your heart-strings and make you want to pimp slap Hawke for being such an a-hole.

 

Blurb:

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would’ve been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other’s secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight…

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna’s darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home…and the alpha who is its heartbeat…

What’s been  your favorite May/June(ish) read?
