Title:  Hunter's Need

Author:  Shiloh Walker

Publisher:  Berkley

4 stars

Duke is bitter. A shapeshifter betrayed by the psychic powers of Analise Morell, he cannot forgive her for putting him in the clutches of a feral vampire, but he also can’t shake his desire for her. And when she needs a Hunter, Duke must face his demons—and hers…
Desperate voices are battering Ana’s psychic shields. A serial killer with extraordinary powers is about to strike again, and the tormented souls of his previous victims are screaming for her help. But Ana can’t understand why they want her…
Their INSATIABLE desire
After what she did to him, Ana is sure Duke must be using her…but if he is, so be it. Ana can’t fight her longing for him, can’t fight the desire that’s haunted her for years. For Duke, every fiber of his soul—both the man and the cougar within—yearns to protect and possess her.…

Analise Morell is fighting to find her place in a world that she would love to blend into.  After living at Excelsior, a school for the gifted to train to be hunters, in order to gain control of her powers and herself she decides it is time to move on.  She has never felt like she fit in but has stayed to be with her brother, a powerful physic,  who she would do anything in her power to protect.  Now five years later Ana takes off for Alaska and a fresh start in order to put the past behind her.

Duke Lawson, a hunter for Excelsior, has constant reminders of the past and every time he sees Ana he is reminded of how close he came to death.  His mixed emotions over Ana drive him insane but when it comes down to it he can't even tolerate another man looking her way.  After Ana leaves for Alaska Duke takes off on one of his many excursions as a hunter for months but shows back up at Excelsior as if drawn to the only home he knows.  Unfortunately he is just as restless as he was when he was gone and frustrated that he can't seem to pinpoint why... At least until he ends up answering a phone call from Analise.

Now a year later, Analise has grown to love Alaska as her home.  The trouble is that she continues to feel that something just isn't right but can't seem to pinpoint what it is.  When she calls Excelsior to get help and Duke answers her call she feels the past rush over her again and the feelings that flood her don't come only from the fact that they share an unhappy past.  When Duke shows up as her help and not by his own choice things start off a bit rocky for them, but when they are faced with death and ghosts they quickly join forces to hunt down the evil that has made it's home in the Alaskan wilderness.

The characters from HUNTER'S NEED drew me in... read the rest of my review on FreshFiction.com

To Slay A Demon...

Title:  The Iron Hunt

Author:  Marjorie M. Liu
Publisher:  Ace

4 stars 

Demon hunter Maxine Kiss wears her armor as tattoos, which unwind from her body to take on forms of their own at night. They stand between her and her enemies, just as Maxine stands between humanity and the demons breaking out from behind the prison veils. It is a life lacking in love, reveling in death, until one moment—and one man— changes everything. 

Maxine Kiss lives in a world where being alone is not only the best but expected of her.  As the last of the mortal demon hunters she has trained her entire life to destroy the evil that threatens the world.  Her only friends the demons that protect her.  By day the demons, or "the boys", cover her body as intricate tattoos that they form to cover her as if being encased in steel.  By night, they are her personal body guards, doing everything in their power to help her fight the ones that threaten her and her world.

After losing her mother Maxine decides she wants more than the lonely existence her heritage has bestowed on her.  Grant, the only person who knows her for her true self, is the person Maxine does not want to give up.  Grant has a few tricks himself, like the ability to use music as a tool that can shape and mold the emotions and desires of those around him.  What Maxine sees in him is an amazing person who wants to change the lives around him for the best.

Now Maxine has come up against a situation that leaves her looking for answers in unsuspecting places.  The veil, or the layers and boundaries that have been in place for centuries to keep the demons out and the humans safe, is weakening.  With the help of Grant, "the boys" and a few bizarre alliances Maxine is on a mission to carry on her legacy and fight the battles as they come.

Marjorie M. Liu has a unique style of writing that unfolds the plot in a way that has you wanting more but keeps dangling just enough in front of you at a time so that it isn't an overwhelming amount of information at once.  The plot for THE IRON HUNT is filled with twists and turns and the world is nothing like anything else I have read thus far.  I am looking forward to picking up the next in The Hunter Kiss series, DARKNESS CALLS, and the upcoming release of the third book, A WILD LIGHT, coming out in July 2010.  I truly enjoyed the main character, Maxine, in seeing both her strengths and her vulnerabilities.  Her story is one that makes you want to cheer her on I know I will definitely be moving on to more of the series.

Goodreads Description 

They guard humanity against supernatural threats from the five gateways into the world. The Shadow Guardians: a vampire, a werewolf, a demon, a dragon and a fae are united in brotherhood - and war. Shadow Guardian Kenrick is an alpha werewolf forever in his prime. When Sybil, a beautiful apprentice witch, unknowingly opens a realm to the Otherworld, there is a sudden influx of demons - and it's up to Kenrick to help her stop them. Soon their passion flares and Kenrick desires Sybil as his mate. But to form their union, Sybil faces the ultimate test: She must bind herself to the Shadow Guardians by sharing herself with all five warriors.

Goodreads Description

When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the

Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird's soul has
shattered. With everything she's ever stood for falling apart, and a
broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey's
fading fast. It's seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able
pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the
world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must
find a way to get to her. But how? He will have to die to do so, the

home but also threatens to explode her whole world.

In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund
baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it). She's always been blessed
(if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but
now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess's own
voice, whether she wants it or not. Aphrodite's loyalty can swing a lot
of different ways, but right now Zoey's fate hangs in the balance.

On My Wishlist...

"On My Wishlist" is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City to share the books that we haven't bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured. Below are a couple of the books that I am looking forward to reading!

I really can't wait for either of these... and count down time has begun...

 Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire, is learning how to play well with others. Other supernaturals, that is. Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene—and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.

Merit must accept the assignment, even though she knows that she’ll probably regret it. And she’s not wrong. Someone is gunning for Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals—not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire. 

The triumvirate created by master vampire Jean-Claude, necromancer Anita Blake, and werewolf Richard Zeeman has made Jean-Claude one of the most powerful vampires in the U.S. He's consolidating power in himself and those loyal to him, doing in America what Belle Morte did in Europe when she was at her height of power. She almost owned Europe, and there are those who are determined that Jean-Claude won't do the same in America. Jean-Claude's motives may be kinder, but as any lawyer will tell you: motives matter, but you're just as dead.

Assassins are coming to St. Louis to kill them all. Anita knows they're coming, but even being forewarned doesn't mean you can win.

Sexy Notes and Hidden Desires...

Title:  Switch

Author:  Megan Hart

Publisher:  Spice

Don't think.

Don't question.

Just do.

The anonymous note wasn't for me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly— deliciously—it was not.

Before replacing the note—and the ones that followed— in its rightful slot, I devoured its contents: suggestions, instructions, commands. Each was more daring, more intricate and more arousing than the last… and I followed them all to the letter.

Before the notes, if a man had told me what to do, I'd have told him where to go. But submission is an art, and there's something oddly freeing about doing someone's bidding…especially when it feels so very, very good. But I find that the more I surrender, the more powerful I feel—so it's time to switch up roles.

We play by my rules now.
Let me start off by saying that this book was completely different from what I was expecting.  That being said, I absolutely loved it.  Megan Hart's writing completely changed the way I look at erotic romance.  There is a very real and emotional quality to her work that kept me turning the pages till the wee hours of the night.

In SWITCH, we follow Paige through a journey of self awareness and sexual discovery.  The emotional ups and downs that she goes through were something that really spoke to me as a reader.  Paige is in her mid twenties and branching out.  After completing her first stage of school she is now working as an administrative assistant and living in a new apartment in a better part of town than she has ever lived.  Paige has an obsession of sorts with fine paper and pens, stationary is something she truly loves, and we find her in a quaint store visiting with the owner, Miriam, on a couple of occasions. So when Paige finds an anonymous note in mailbox on beautiful paper she opens it before noticing that it is addressed to a different apartment.  This note and the ones that follow it begin a change in Paige and make her aware of desires that tend toward dominant and submissive roles.

Throughout the story we learn about Paige's past, her family life and what she wants from the new life she is creating for herself.  We meet her mother and younger brother, we meet her father and her have siblings from his other marriages and we meet the men of her life from high school till the present.  The struggles that she goes through as an adult finding her way after a divorce and learning to cope with new knowledge of the past is an emotional roller-coaster for her and the reader.  Paige finds herself following along with the notes' stipulations which has a way of changing her relationships with her ex-husband, her boss and the mystery person the notes were addressed to in the first place. 

This was the first book I've read from Megan Hart and I cannot wait to pick up another.  I love the way the story made me think and the way she has of making the emotions real enough that the reader feels right along with the characters.  I would highly suggest SWITCH to anyone who asks.

A Little Something Sexy...

 So this is a little something that I wrote... just thought it would be fun to post up... Hope you enjoy!
   <--- This is Adam
This is James-->

 As I walk into the dark club I immediately head to the bar. After ordering my usual, Grey Goose and Red Bull, I decide to sit back and check out the place. The beat of the music is pulsing through my body, the bass so loud that I can feel it thrumming. Looking across the room full of bodies, my eyes stop as if willed when I see Adam, the lead singer of Hellions. As he looks up, as if he felt me looking at him, a shiver goes down my spine. The feeling is so intense. I’ve never felt a reaction this strong before to anyone.

After a moment he crooks his finger at me and I immediately head in his direction. I’ve never been the type that just follows directions, but I can’t seem to help myself. Making my way through the packed dance floor is like walking through water. People shift and move around you, rubbing against you. The heat and friction combined with the loud thrum of the music is already making my body crave more.

As I approach Adam he looks me over and then those eyes are just staring into mine. It’s as if the music and people no longer exist. All I can think about is taking him by the collar and leading him upstairs. His eyes follow me as I move closer until I’m standing right in front of him. As they slide down to take in my lips then my neck it’s as if I can feel the hunger radiating off of him. As my pulse speeds with the thought of what he might need I notice his pupils start to dilate.

As I reach out to touch his cheek I notice another figure now standing in my way. As I glance up I realize this is James. He’s always with him. I notice him looking between Adam and myself trying to figure out what to make of the situation. Adam leans in close and whispers something in James’s ear. Not sure what to make of the interaction I start to turn away only to be stopped by a hand on my arm.

Looking up I find Adam leaning into me. Not sure what to make of the situation I raise an eyebrow in question. Leaning in a little closer so that he can be heard over the music he says “Mon Cheri, please join me in my private suite”. It takes me a minute to nod in acknowledgement. I can’t believe this is happening. He is so breathtaking. I manage a breathy “yes” before he leads me toward the side of the club.

Heading up the stairs on his heals I realize that we aren’t alone. I glance back over my shoulder to see James following us. Not sure what to make of it I just continue up the stairs. As we reach the end of the hall I realize we are about to enter a large room in the back. There is a king size bed in the center of the room with black satin sheets. Just the thought of the satin rubbing against my skin makes me wish I was already naked.

Just as I make it through the doorway I feel strong hands on my hips pushing me up against the wall. My breath catches in my throat as I realize Adam is pressing himself between my now spread legs. I can feel his erection against my thigh, straining to escape the confinement of those tight black leather pants. Then his lips are on mine and all thought outside of him and this room completely disappears.

As he pulls back I realize the door has been shut and that we’re not alone. James is still here with a look of heat in his expression. As I tilt my head to study him closer I feel lips against my neck. The soft line of kisses starting just below my jaw and ending at my collarbone. I can feel his hands as they slide under my tank top lifting it up to reveal my sheer black bra. As he pulls the top over my head in one quick move he latches his mouth over my nipple and I suck in a sharp breath. I close my eyes as he begins to trace slow circles around my nipple and I can feel it puckering up so tight it’s almost painful.

I start to run my hands down his chest, wanting to remove the cloth barrier of his shirt. He grabs my wrists and pins them above my head before I have the chance to touch his skin. Trying to pull free was pointless. He held my arms immobile as if he could do it all night. I suppose he probably could with all that unleashed power he had running through him.

As Adam glances over his shoulder at James, it’s as if they had an entire conversation in that one look. As he approaches us, I wonder what they had just shared. In one quick movement James pulls his shirt free of his pants and up over his head dropping it on the floor as moves in our direction. The next thing I know I’m being lifted off the floor and carried to the bed. I lay my head against James’s hard chest. As I look behind us Adam is removing his shirt. I can’t take my eyes off of him as he reveals his slender muscular frame.

When we reach the large bed, James sets me in the middle. As I start to move into a sitting position Adam reaches the side of the bed. One word “No” and I immediately lay back on the sheets. The next thing I know my hands are being held above my head by James and Adam is unbuttoning my jeans. As he pulls them down over my hips he reveals my black thong and the heat in his gaze nearly sends me over the edge.

It was such an intense feeling. Being undressed and held down, exposed completely. As he runs his hands lightly up my legs to the inside of my thighs, I can feel myself getting wet. As if he knows that what he is doing is driving me insane his nostrils flair and the pressure from his fingertips increases. I suck in a startled breath as his fangs are bared and he bites right through the thin material of my bra. As it slips open to reveal my breasts I feel the rush of cold air on my nipples. I hear a low rumble of excitement from behind me and realize James is watching as my nipples hardened into tight little peaks.

I can feel Adam’s gaze on my face and look back in his direction. Looking at me with such heat I almost don’t hear his question. “Will you let me do as I like?” Not sure I could say no at this point even if I wanted to, I look back at him and respond the only way I can. “Anything” I whisper, almost to low to be heard. The only response I get is a low growl in the back of his throat. As if he was touching me I feel my sex throb in response.

Straddling my thighs, he leans over me and takes my mouth with an aggressiveness that causes a moan to escape my lips. I feel his hands cup my breasts, thumb and forefinger clasping my nipples in a hard pinch. I groan and he squeezed harder. As my eyelids flutter down I feel him nibble my jaw line then down my neck to my collarbone. I open my eyes and glance down to meet his just as his mouth closes over one of my nipples and his fingers continues to pinch the other. I gasp at the pure pleasure from it and feel him bite down on my breast a little harder. Trying to stay conscious from the intense rush of sensation I make myself focus on him.

As he moves down to my abdomen, I feel his tongue circle and dip into my belly button. I can feel goose bumps all over my body as his tongue moves down to run over the sensitive flesh on the inside of my thigh. I feel his fingers slide under the thin strap of my thong as he slowly pulls them over my hips being careful not to touch me where I want him to most.

“Look at me.” Adam says, and I obey immediately. Only after meeting his eyes does he place his hands on the inside of my thighs and spread my legs wide. Sucking in a small gasp as I continue to get lost in the heat of his gaze I realize that I’ve never felt anything this intense. The only thought running through my mind is “More, I need more.”

As he settles himself between my legs all I can feel is heat spreading throughout my entire body. As he runs his hands up my thigh and then around and under me to cup my ass I can’t focus. I close my eyes and let my head fall back onto the pillow. When I finally feel his lips on me though, it’s almost too soft.

As I lift my pelvis off the bed trying to get more contact I feel a hand land on my abdomen. Opening my eyes and looking straight up I see James looking down at me. I realize he now has one hand holding my wrists in place and the other holding me flat on the bed. The intense way he’s staring at me sends a shiver down my spine.

I feel Adam lick the inside of my thigh and then bite down, sucking hard. The intense pain immediately turns into pleasure and places me on the edge of orgasm. In the same instant I feel soft lips against mine and realize James is kissing me, tasting me. The dual sensations cause the orgasm to hit without warning.

I can still feel the small aftershocks as Adam’s mouth closes over my swollen and extremely sensitive clit. I scream out and James absorbs the sound. I can feel Adam sucking on my clit as he slips a finger into my wet pussy. As my hips try to lift on their own due to the intense rush of feeling I feel the strong weight of James’s hand holding me motionless. Being held in place I can feel the pressure starting to grow again, my pussy getting even more wet than I thought possible. Just when I think I can’t take the pressure any more I feel James lower his mouth to my breast and bite down on my nipple. I scream, as the pleasure hits me and I orgasm harder than I ever have before.

As I open my eyes trying to regain my equilibrium, I look up to see Adam watching me. His eyes so intense I can’t take my gaze off of him. As he lowers himself over me I realize he’s stripped out of the rest of his clothes. Wow, I hadn’t even noticed him do that. As I feel his smooth skin across mine I let out a shuttering breath. This is what I’ve been waiting for, the feel of him against me, without barriers.

I realize James has moved to the side of the bed. No longer holding me in place. Just watching. I never realized what a turn on that could be, but I can’t help but get excited at the thought that we’re being watched. Talk about a night of discovery.

Looking back up at Adam, I realize he was waiting on me to refocus on him. After a couple of heartbeats that felt like an eternity, he lowers his mouth to mine. I can taste my own juices as he kisses me. Then he’s sweeping his tongue into my mouth in a possessive manner that makes my blood feel like it’s boiling.

The next moment I feel the head of his solid erection pushing against my opening. As he I feel the breath catch in my throat he shoves inside of me in one quick hard thrust. I feel myself stretch to accommodate him, reveling in the pleasure of him filling me up to the hilt.

Starting slowly and increasing in speed he pounds into me. Completely filling me with each thrust. I can feel him as he shudders above me. Then he starts slamming into me as fast and as hard as he can. I can barely catch my breath from thrust to the next. I feel my self begin to tighten around his hard length and I know he feels it too. As Adam lets out a low growl in my ear, he shoves into me so hard I feel the bed move with us. Then we’re both screaming out. I can feel the spasms run through his body and then I feel myself contract around him. Milking him.

With a deep sigh, Adam collapses on top of me. I love the feel of him on me, surrounding me. His arms slide around me and he rolls us onto our sides, cradling me next to his body. I lay still for a moment, enjoying the feel of him all around me.

The next thing I know, I feel a hand running down and over my hip. Startled I glance up at James. I had almost forgotten he was in the room. I roll over in Adam’s arms as James crawls across the bed towards us. As he lays down facing me, I can feel my body already responding and getting wet again.

I feel Adam kiss the sensitive skin between my shoulder blades. As he moves lower goose bumps rise all over my body again. I hadn’t realized what I was missing. Reaching a hand between our bodies, I can feel him completely aroused again. I wrap my hand around the base of his erection and squeeze. As I pull my hand up and then rub my thumb across the head of his penis, a drop of liquid escapes.

I begin to kiss my way down Adam’s body, stopping to pull each nipple into my mouth and gently bite down. I hear a low moan come from the back of his throat and glance up to see him watching me. I continue to kiss my way down his abdomen, stopping to trace the solid planes of muscle with my tongue. As I continue to stroke him I gently lower my mouth over his head and lick. When he bucks a little under my touch, I smile. I can’t help it. I like feeling the power it gives me to be in control now. I move my mouth over his hard length and take in as much of him as I can. Licking the vein on the underside of his cock I feel him shudder.

As I start to suck harder on the tip and run my hand up and down the hard length of him I feel a hand on my back. Glancing over my shoulder I see James coming up behind me. The thought of him entering me while I take Adam in my mouth has me clit throbbing and my pussy getting wet all over again.

I lean slightly back into James’s touch, an invitation to keep going. I can feel his hands running over my hips, my ass, up my back. Then I feel a finger enter me and I gasp around Adam’s cock. Mouth teeth lightly graze his erection and I feel him stiffen under me. Looking into his eyes all I see is intense pleasure at the slight pain.

I’m drawn back to James as the head of his rock hard erection starts to push against my opening. I spread my legs a little further as he grabs onto my shoulder with one hand and my hip with the other, holding me completely still. Shoving himself as far into me as he can in one strong movement I again gasp around Adam as James begins to slam into me hard and fast. I move my mouth over Adam’s rock hard cock, sucking him in as fully as possible then letting my teeth graze him as I slide up his shaft.

I feel a ripple of pleasure run through me as my body begins to tighten around James. I feel him shudder above me. Still holding me motionless he begins to go as fast as he can, causing the sound of skin slapping skin to echo in the room. With one last thrust I feel him let go, filling me, spilling into me. I tighten my mouth around Adam as I cum around James. I feel Adam take in a sharp breath and then feel him release in my mouth. I swallow hard, taking all of him in, the salty sweet taste.

I collapse on the bed sandwiched between these two men whom I barely knew before tonight. As I close my eyes, I smile. Sleep sucking at me, I relax, feeling safe and secure. Then nothing. Just total blackness as I let sleep drag me under.

Silver Borne Review and Moon Called Giveaway!!!

Title:  Silver Borne -  Mercy Thompson Series

Author:  Patricia Briggs

Publisher:  Ace Hardcover

Being a mechanic is hard work. Mercy Thompson, for instance, just spent the last couple of months trying to evade the murderous queen of the local vampire seethe, and now the leader of the werewolf pack - who's maybe-more-than-just-a-friend - has asked for her help. A book of fae secrets has come to light and they're all about to find out how implacable - and dangerous - the fae can be. OK, so maybe her troubles have nothing to do with the job. But she sure could use a holiday ...
Notes from Patty herself about the book!

In this next installment of the Mercy Thompson series I was definitely not let down!  Mercy has been one of my long standing favorites and I am already looking forward to RIVER MARKED #6 to be released in 2011.  I love that Mercy has the feel of someone I could see walking down the street, her character has such a rich quality that you feel that she is a friend that you would love to just hang out with.  Her down to earth personality and devotion to her loved ones makes her one of the most likable heroines that I have ever read.

In SILVER BORNE we get to see a new side to the relationship between Mercy, the coyote shifter auto mechanic, and her main squeeze, sexy alpha werewolf for the local pack, Adam Hauptman.  The dynamics of their relationship as they work through the obstacles of dealing with the pack being in on every part of their it causes strain and shows them that they have to work for the things they truly care about.  The pack has been through a rough couple of years and these new transitions cause a lot of conflict within the ranks as they learn who they can trust and how to make it work for everyone involved.

With Mercy being her usually self she takes on a lot of things by herself, not wanting to make things worse for those around her.  When she receives a mysterious message in regards to an old fae book that she has in her possession, she tries to return it to it's owner Phin, but no one seems to no where he's gone... or maybe they're just being evasive, as so many fae can be.  Mercy finds herself in an extremely difficult position as she tries to right whatever wrongs have been done in the search for a missing artifact that is the only bargaining chip she can use when up against some of the most powerful magic she has yet to encounter.  Her journey to save her friend and not disrupt the pack even more turns out to be more than she bargained for.

We also get to know more about Samuel, the Marrok's son and Mercy's current room mate.  As a powerful alpha werewolf living next door to Adam and under the same roof as Mercy the tension between the men in her life is thick enough to choke on at times.  Samuel is also someone very close to Mercy's heart and with him going through a difficult time she finds herself wanting to help and unable to find a clear way to do so.  Afraid of losing him without giving it everything she has she finds a way to keep the problems under wraps as much of possible but with the clock ticking down she doesn't know if she will have enough time to find the answers before it's too late to save him from destroying himself.

I loved this book!  The plot was exciting, the characters are enchanting and the romance between Mercy and Adam was a soft touch that just made me smile as I read.  Patricia Briggs has a masterful way of merging reality with fantasy that makes you want to believe in the unbelievable.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the pack dynamics and seeing Mercy progress as she learned how her bonds with the pack worked.  I have to say that I loved seeing a softer side to Adam where Mercy was concerned... and then at the end when he showed how animal he could be... wow!  Overall, still one of my favorite series!  If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this amazing series you need to start with MOON CALLED and find yourself immersed in a world that you will wish was real!

In The Mail...

 Totally Excited... received 3 books in the mail today!!!

THE TROUBLE WITH HEROES Antohology with a wonderful assortment of authors including one of my favs... Adrian Phoenix!!!  

These 22 all-new tales pay tribute to the true heroes—the people who enable and put up with heroes. From what it’s like to be Hercules’ wife (complete with an appearance by Hercules in drag) to the trials of H.P. Lovecraft’s housekeeper, from the perils of being King Kong’s girlfriend to the downside of dating a shapeshifter, this anthology turns heroism on its head, revealing the behind-the-scenes drama, as opposed to glorious rescues. From the Pied Piper’s power trip to David acting like a giant you-know-what after slaying Goliath, these stories show heroes in all their ignominy and shine a light on the unsung faithful standing in their shadows.

THREE DAYS TO DEAD by Kelly Meding which I have really been looking forward to reading!

They’ll never see her coming. . . .

When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.

Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance. . . .

HUNTER'S NEED by Shiloh Walker which sounds very very HOT!!!

In this dazzling follow-up to Hunter's Salvation, national best-selling author Shiloh Walker tells the story of another unique hero at the heart of a terrifying world...

His Challenge
Duke is bitter. A shape-shifter betrayed by the psychic powers of Analise Morell, he cannot forgive her for putting him in the clutches of a feral vampire, but he also can't shake his desire for her. And when she needs a Hunter, Duke must face his demons--and hers.

Her Mission
Desperate voices are battering Ana's psychic shields. A serial killer with extraordinary powers is about to strike again, and the tormented souls of his previous victims are screaming for her help. But Ana can't understand why they want her...

Their Insatiable Desire
After what she did to him, Ana is sure Duke must be using her...but so be it. Ana can't fight her longing for him or the desire that's haunted her for years. Every fiber of Duke's soul--both the man and the cougar within--yearns to protect and possess her... 

  I am looking at some fantastic reading for the rest of April...

Currently reading:
I have barely started Marjorie M Liu's book THE IRON HUNT and I am already loving it... it caught my attention from page one and I can't wait to see what will happen as the book progresses!
In Charlene Teglia's SATISFACTION GUARANTEED I can honestly say she has not disappointed so far... this is 3 stories in one with the characters being intertwined throughout and I can't wait to get to the 2nd story!
Currently Listening To:

About have way through UNCOVERED by Lori Foster... who I love to read... and can't wait to see where this sexy firefighter and his laid back neighbor end up!

Then up next is URBAN SHAMAN by CE Murphy which I have been wanting to check out for a while now... very much looking forward to this unabridged audio!

So... what are you reading or looking forward to for April???

Title:  Entwined by Fate

Author:  S.A. Price

Publisher:  Tease Publishing LLC

Thirty females of the Ophidian race have gone missing, most from the transient nest of Las Vegas, a rogue and unofficial nest run by the Saint, John Merrick. Believed to be dead by every Archon in the states, Merrick leads a quiet and unassuming life, saving those of his race that are lost and need it most. It's a solitary existence, one that he hates every day. He yearns for his mate, the woman he left over a decade before, and the woman who thinks him dead to this day. When Elise Rizdon gets the official invitation to the Archon meeting in Ohio by the leader of a new Midwestern nest, she never expected to see the love of her life at the woman's side, a man she was told was dead and buried. She lost him once upon a time, and she never fully recovered. Focusing on the issues, and not the man that has always made her body burn is not going to be easy. A disturbing event is on the horizon, one that threatens all Ophidian's and their way of life. In order to survive they will have to work together, give up old grudges and take chances on the things that matter most. Love, life and the continuation of their race. 

John Merrick lives as a Rouge to his own kind.  No one know he is still alive let alone building his own nest from those who are without a nest of their own.  He wasn't planning to make his whereabouts know, but when some of the girls who have found shelter in his nest start disappearing he is left with no choice but to expose his existence to everyone including those who would have him dead.

Elise doesn't know whether to be relieved or angry at the betrayal she feels when confronted with her mate she thought dead for over 10 years. Showing up in free territory with all of the Archons, leaders of the Weresnake nests, to find the love she thought she had lost is hard to cope with.  But she finds she must put her feelings for Merrick to the side as they work to find the missing girls and uncover the evil behind their loss.  

As Elise and Merrick work together with the help of their nests and the others they find the opportunity to reconnect but whether there is enough love between them to move past the time apart is left to be seen.

I thoroughly enjoyed the world and the characters that Stella and Audra Price have created with ENTWINED BY FATE.  It was refreshing to have a new take on shifters and the way they wrote of Weresnakes was sexy and intriguing.  I am very much looking forward to more from this new series.
