Burning Dawn – Review

Know what I did this past weekend, Peeps? Check out a UFC match? Nope. Hit up my favourite club with my besties? Nada. Meet a smokin’ hot stranger and get swept away? Sadly, no. All three? Uh uh. Something better – I read the latest installment of Gena Showalter’s Angels of the Dark series – Burning Dawn!

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Gena’s Angels of the Dark series, but absolutely love her Lords of the Underworld series, let me use this analogy for you… If the Lords are Sex-on-a-Stick, the AoD’s Sent Ones are Sex-on-Gilded-Wings…

Interested? I thought you might be!

Labyrinth of Stars – Review

I’ve been promising a review of Marjorie M. Liu’s Labyrinth of Stars for a while now and I’m happy to finally be able to share it with my readers.

The short version? You must read the Hunter Kiss series, Peeps! It has everything that I like in a series – lovable demons, sarcastic female protagonist, sexy love interest, bat-shit crazy secondary characters, pain-in-the-ass minor characters, and fast paced urban fantasy/sci-fi story line. What’s not to love?

I was hooked on Labyrinth from the very first line -

I’ll be honest: I can’t recommend having a demon as your obstetrician.

Fight with them, live with them, feed their hungry stomachs all the M&M’s, chain saws, and small artillery they can handle — but when it comes to taking pregnancy advice, avoid at all costs. Even if they’ve been delivering the babies in your family for the last ten thousand years.

Intrigued?

Read the full Review of Labyrinth of Stars here.

Laura Wright News

Author Laura Wright sent out her latest newsletter the other day and I’ve gotta say that she’s one busy lady! First Laura teams up with Alexandra Ivy with two back-to-back Bayou Heat books releasing this spring – Lian/Roch (April), and Hakan/Severin (May).

Shameless is another upcoming paranormal and it will be part of a new series called Masters of Seduction. Other participating authors include Lara Adrian, Donna Grant, and Alexandra Ivy. The boxed collection features Incubus alphas and it will be in stores this summer. * * Click the link below to Pre-order for just 99 cents! Save $4 on the collection when you order now! * *

 

 

This will be followed by Eternal Storm, the next Mark of the Vampire book, sometime later this year.

In addition to these paranormals, Laura also has a new Western series, The Cavanaugh Brothers, debuting in June (with the second book releasing in October), another Western titled Sinful in Spurs coming out as part of the Sinful Seconds group series. She is also working on Rebel Ink, the latest installment in her Wicked Ink Chronicles. Whew! That’s a whole lot to cram into one year and knowing Laura, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised to see her add on to this as the year progresses.

Labyrinth of Stars Winner!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Labyrinth of Stars quiz! I’ve really enjoyed promoting the world of Maxine Kiss and her ‘Boys’ over this past week and hope that my readers enjoyed it as much as I did. Hopefully I’ve been able to introduce a bunch of new readers to the work of Marjorie M. Liu as well.

Look for more tidbits about Labyrinth of Stars, the Hunter Kiss series, and Marjorie over the next little while. I’ll be posting a review of Labyrinth soon and I still hope to be able to get an interview or guest post from Marjorie after she returns to the States next month.

In the meantime, the winner of the “So You Think You Know Max” quiz is …

 

Diane Dimsey

 

Congratulations, Diane! You were the only person to score 100% on the quiz! I’ll be sending you an email shortly. You have the option of an unsigned copy of Labyrinth to be sent next week or an autographed copy to be sent in April once Marjorie has a chance to settle in and unpack after her travels.

Cover Reveal for Darynda Jones’ Seventh Grave and No Body

As I mentioned previously, we’re getting TWO Charley Davidson books from the awesome Darynda Jones this year. Sixth Grave on the Edge will be hitting bookstore shelves on May 20th and Seventh Grave and No Body is scheduled to be released on October 21st. (If only all of our favourite authors could produce two books in the same series in one year, I’d be in heaven! But I digress…)

The lucky gals over at Heroes and Heartbreakers had the pleasure of revealing the cover of Seventh Grave today and now I’m sharing it with you too.

 

Darynda Jones, Seventh Grave and No Body, Charley Davidson

 

I love the vibrant covers that artist Michael Storrings and St. Martin’s Press have come up with for this series. I’d recognize a Charley Davidson book even if the title was missing. Not many other authors are lucky enough to have such a distinctive look. Of course not many women are lucky enough to have such an awesome collection of skull themed accessories either!

Speaking of Charley’s skull accessories, how would you like to win the belt buckle featured on the cover of Seventh Grave? Head on over to HeroesandHeartbreakers.com to enter!
