I just read this new book from Dorothy Garlock named A Week From Sunday and I thought it was awesome! Dorothy Garlock is a New York Times bestselling author and she is even quoted as "THE VOICE OF AMERICA'S HEARTLAND." Dorothy Garlock writings mostly in the time period of the 1920s and 1930s but she also writes in the time period of the 1980s. I personally love to read her books, which I stumbled on to while I was walking around Barnes & Noble one day searching for new books. Here is the book description from the back of the book and a picture:



A WEEK FROM SUNDAY $ 12.99 (372 Pages)








Adrianna Moore has just had a double shock: the death of her father and to discover that he had left his entire estate to his lawyer. A duplicitous social climber, the attorney promises to give her back her inheritance…if she agrees to marry him a week from Sunday. Repulsed by his proposal and desperate to escape, Adrianna knows there’s only one thing she can do—run! But in the pouring rain, her car collides with a truck driven by Quinn Baxter. A lumberjack and bar owner, this rugged giant of a man can make a whole new life possible for her…if she accepts the bargain he offers. Will it be enough to free her from the clutches of an enemy who has vowed to possess her at any cost?

I have been reading Joan Johnston for a while and I think she is pretty great. I have almost all of her books. I got the description of The Sisters of the Lone Star Series from her website:

PREQUEL to THE BITTER CREEK SERIES! These books cover the history of the Republic of Texas from 1836-1846. The three women featured in this series, Sloan, Bayleigh and Creighton Stewart, were raised by their father as though they were sons, which complicates their efforts to find happiness with a man. The hero in the first book is Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed; in the second, the hero is a half-breed Comanche, Walker Coburn; and in the third, the hero is Don Cruz Guerrero, a Castilian Spaniard.
I will be writing about the Bitter Creek Series books in another post but for now here is the description from the back of the books and pictures:





FRONTIER WOMAN $ 7.50 (Book 1)(453 Pages)








Captured by Comanches as a boy, Jarrett Creed grew to manhood torn between two worlds. But with the young republic under siege from ravaging Mexican armies and marauding Indian tribes alike, he made his choice. Now, as a secret government mission brings the Texas Ranger to lovely Cricket Stewart’s door, he must choose again.

The youngest daughter of a wealthy gentleman planter, Cricket lives life as she pleases and vows never to be a wife to any man. Until the day Jarrett Creed saves her from avenging Comanches…by claiming her as his bride.



The last thing either expects is to fall in love. But as a traitorous conspiracy and a secret tragedy test their new found union, a wild-spirited beauty and a Texas lawman will discover just how far they will go for their precious homeland…and for a love that could free them from the sorrows of the past….







COMANCHE WOMAN $ 7.50 (Book 2)(373 Pages)








Born to a white father and his Indian bride, Long Quiet believed his destiny lay with his Comanche brothers. But his heart secretly belonged to Bayleigh Stewart, daughter of the richest cotton planter in Texas, who’s been abducted by a marauding brave and sold to the highest bidder. For years he’d searched for the violet-eyed beauty, and now a strange twist of fate led him to her.



Called Shadow by her captors, Bay had almost given up hope of rescue, when a rugged stranger in buckskins appeared, risking his life to bring her home…and awakening a passion that burned hot and true. Bay knew her place was with her family. But Long Quiet hadn’t found her only to lose her again. He had to convince this woman—his woman—that her true home was with him…as together they would fight for a love strong enough to bridge two worlds….







TEXAS WOMAN $ 7.50 (Book 3)(370 Pages)






Cruz Guerrero wanted Sloan Stewart from the first moment he laid eyes on the headstrong beauty. But Sloan, eldest daughter of a wealthy cotton planter, belonged to another man—until the day she came to him, a woman in trouble on the lawless frontier…and he made her an offer she could not refuse. Now he is ready to claim what is rightfully his—even as a long-ago betrayal to tear her from his arms forever.


Sloan swore never to be used by a man again. Only sheer desperation made her strike a bargain with the with the aristocratic nobleman. Now he has come to collect on the vow they made together, seducing her with tender words, determined to make her want him as he wants her. Caught in the bitter cross fire of a traitorous enemy and an embattled Republic, a man bound by honor and a woman wounded by passion must dare to trust in a love that’s strong and wild and true….

I love Catherine Coulter. I've been reading her books since my mom's friend gave me her daughter's old books and Catherine Coulter's Warrior Song was in the mix with my first Nora Roberts book Three Fates. I have almost all of Catherine Coulter's books and I've read all of them. I'll probably post about other series that she has. Here are the descriptions of the books from the back and the pictures:


MIDSUMMER MAGIC $ 7.99 (Book 1)(412 Pages)






Dear Reader:

Midsummer Magic, the first novel in the Magic Trilogy, was published at the end of 1987. Now, eleven years later, we’re reissuing the trilogy with brand-new clothes. I haven’t done any rewriting, as this novel is just dandy the way it is.

Philip Hawksbury, the Earl of Rothermere, obeying his father’s dying wish, hies himself to Scotland to offer for one of the daughters of Alexander Kilbracken, the Earl of Ruthven. Frances Kilbracken, informed of the earl’s arrival and his mission, disguises herself as a bespectacled dowd so she won’t be the one selected by the young earl. But choose her he does, and for all the wrong reasons.

The newly married couple return to England, together but not at all happy. Philip dumps Frances at Desborough Hall, his ancestral estate, and heads back to his old life in London. Ah, but Desborough has a stud farm and racing stable, and Frances is magic with horses. When the earl returns to his home, driven by guilt, he discovers the woman he married has grossly deceived him. What follows is a battle of the sexes that will have you chuckling, maybe even howling with laughter.

Enjoy,

Catherine Coulter






CALYPSO MAGIC $ 7.99 (Book 2)(402 Pages)






Dear Reader:

Calypso Magic, the second novel in the Magic Trilogy, was published in 1988. I haven’t done any rewriting; the novel’s just wearing new clothes.

It is 1813 in London. The Earl of Saint Leven, Lyonel Ashton, doesn’t like women, and he’s got every reason not to. But fate, in the guise of Aunt Lucia, intervenes. She presents him with Diana Savarol, a young lady newly arrived from her family’s Caribbean island and very unhappy at being forced into frigid England and tossed headlong into the marriage market.

These two very strong willed individuals eye each other, then go for the gold in an insult competition. The earl calls Diana an eavesdropper; she says he looks pale and unhealthy. He says she has big feet; she says he suffers from “Charlotte’s Disease.”

When Diana insists upon returning home, she doesn’t expect to have the earl share her cabin aboard ship. Then there’s the ship’s captain, Rafael Carstairs, who isn’t just any ship captain sailing the seven seas. And on Savarol Island, there’s a mystery to solve and wrongs to right.

Enjoy,

Catherine Coulter






MOONSPUN MAGIC $ 7.99 (Book 3)(408 Pages)






Dear Reader:

Moonspun Magic is the last novel in the Regency Magic Trilogy, first published well over a decade ago. I haven’t rewritten the novel, it’s just dressed in fetching new clothes.

You’ve already met Rafael Carstairs the mysterious sea captain who worked against Napoleon in Calypso Magic. He’s a civilian now and traveling to see his twin brother, Damien Carstairs, Baron Dragon, in Cornwall. In the middle of a moonless night, Rafael rescues a young girl, Victoria Abermarle, from smugglers, only to find that’s she’s trying to escape his twin, who tried to rape her.

What’s a retired spy to do with a young girl whose nubile self and sizable fortune are both threatened by this own brother? He doesn’t he noble thing, finally. He marries her. And that’s just the beginning of their adventures….

Step into this whirlwind of intrigue, shattering secrets, and black-souled villains that set brother against brother and pits good against evil. Revisit all the characters from the three Magic novels and see what mischief they’ve been brewing since Midsummer Magic kicked things off in 1810 Scotland.

Enjoy,

I love the Buchanan family and Julie Garwood has both good contemporary and historical romances. They are all stubborn and smart but they all have one adventurious and dangerous journey that leads them to their life parnters. So far there is 6 books published in the series. Here are the book descriptions from the back of the books and the picture covers:






HEARTBREAKER $ 7.99 (Book 1)(520 Pages)

In the still of the shadows of the confessional, a madman tauntingly reveals his plan for a murder he is going to commit, pulling Father Thomas Madden into a twisted game by disclosing his next intending victim: Tom’s sister Laurant. In a frantic race to protect her, Tom calls upon his best friend, elite FBI agent Nick Buchanan, to track the predator who is closing in on Laurant. Now, as an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does the danger—and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.

KILLJOY $ 7.99 (Book 3)(441 Pages)







When it comes to gripping novels of unrelenting suspense, # 1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood is in a class by herself. As her legion of fans can attest, she has mastered the art of creating characters who live and breathe in compelling, page-turning stories. Now with Killjoy, Garwood has written her most electrifying thriller to date.

Her razor-sharp mind and ability to decipher evidence have made Avery Delaney an expert crime analyst for the FBI. Now she will have to use every one of her skills on a case that hits painfully close to home.



Avery’s beloved aunt Carolyn was on her ways to a posh spa in the Colorado Mountains. But she never arrived. Now, with a scant clues and fewer resources, Avery must track down Carolyn—and outmaneuver a brilliant killer named Monk who is part of an elaborate plot of madness and lethal vengeance.








MURDER LIST $ 7.99 (Book 4)(425 Pages)









There are few authors who can weave together nail-biting thrills, edge-of-your-seat drama, and romantic suspense as masterfully as Julie Garwood. Now she ratchets up the tension with Murder List, in which evil is on the hunt….

Hotel heiress Regan Hamilton Madison is flirting with danger. She agrees to help a journalist friend expose Dr. Lawrence Shields, a shady self-help guru who may have been responsible for the death of one of his vulnerable devotees. Hoping to find some damning evidence, Regan attends a Shields seminar, where the doctor has his guests make a list of the people who have hurt or angered them over the years and asks: Would your world be a better place if these people ceased to exist? Treating the exercise as a game, Regan plays along.



The experience is all but forgotten—until the first person on Regan’s list turns up dead. Shock turns to horror when another name from her list surfaces as a corpse. While brutal murders seem to stalk Regan’s every move, her attraction to detective assigned to protect her grows. As the menace intensifies and a serial killer circles, Regan must discover who has turned her private revenge fantasies into grisly reality.






SLOW BURN $ 7.99 (Book 5)(424 Pages)








Everything fire begins with a little heat—and in Slow Burn, # 1 New York Times bestselling author provides the spark, skillfully blending pulse-pounding action, intense emotion, and characters with grit and heart. The result is an electrifying novel of romantic suspense that will have readers burning through the pages.



An unpretentious beauty who radiates kindness, Kate MacKenna doesn’t have a bad bone in her body—or an enemy in the world. So why are bombs igniting everywhere she goes? The first explosion brings her face-to-face with a handsome Charleston police detective. The second one sends her into the arms of her best friend’s brother—a Boston cop who’s a little too reckless and way too charming for comfort. But Dylan Buchanan won’t let emotion prevent him from doing his job: Someone is trying to kill Kate, and Dylan is the only one standing between her and the monster who wants her dead.






SHADOW DANCE $ 25.95 (Book 6)(336 Pages)(also in mass market paperback $ 7.99)






Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair—for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch—until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there’s “bad blood” between the couples clans, stemming and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Jordan has always led a cautious life and has used her intelligence and reason to become a successful businesswoman. So she is intrigued but skeptical of the professor’s claims that the feud has been kept alive by the grave injustices the Buchanans have perpetrated over the centuries. But when Noah Clayborne, a close family friend and a man who has never let a good time or a pretty girl pass him by, accuse Jordan of being trapped in her comfort zone, she determines to prove him wrong and sets out on a spontaneous adventure to the small, dusty town of Serenity, Texas, to judge the professor’s research for herself.

Maneuvering through a close-knit community in which everyone knows everyone else’s business, Jordan never anticipates the danger and intrigue that lie in her path, nor the threat that will shadow her back to Boston, where even in familiar surroundings, her life is at risk.

A powerful thug who rules by fear, a man who harbors a simmering secret, and an unexpected romance that pierces all defenses—beloved author Julie Garwood weaves these dazzling elements into a brilliant novel of romantic suspense. Shadow Dance is a searing tango of passion and peril.

I just created a cool FORUM for my website yesterday! You know that there are some authors who have a forum where their readers can post about the books the authors written and where the members could post about themselves and post games and such. Well I decided to look for a place where I could get a FREE forum so I can do just like some of those authors. OMG I can't believe I actually made one and it's all thanks to my friend from the KMM forum known as MacKelterLover. I asked her advice on what she thought of me created this forum and she told me to go for it and I did. Now I just have to tell everyone I know what is going on so they can also join me in posting on this cool new forum. I can't wait to see how this whole thing will turn out. So whoever wants to join all you have to do is going to my website called Ivette's Place and click on the tab that says Ivette's Place Forum and there is the link that will lead you to the forum that I created. I have a lot of things that people can talk about such as themselves, writers and aspiring writers, movies, TV shows, books and authors, and so much more (I have special rooms for certain authors). So all I will say is ENJOY!

I think Katie MacAlister is a really good writer. I've read almost all of her books and I especially like the Aisling Grey series books. She has 4 books out in this series and I'll be posting their cover pictures and descriptions. I think that everyone needs to at least give these books a try because they are funny and romantic. Here are the descriptions of the book from the back of the covers and pictures:





YOU SLAY ME $ 6.99 (Book 1)(342 Pages)








I’m Aisling Grey, and I have the job from Hell….


Literally. My prior career as a courier began and ended when I traveled to Paris to deliver a six-hundred-year-old golden dragon statue and learned I was a Guardian. That’s a Keeper of the Gates to Hell to you mere mortals. This I found out from Drake Vireo, a scrumptiously sexy (in human form at least) real-life dragon. Then he stole my artifact out from under my nose—and from the dead body of the person I was supposed to deliver it to. After tracking Drake down to a local bar, I discovered I’m also a wyvern’s mate. And wouldn’t you know Drake is a wyvern? He couldn’t be just some underling—he had to be head dragon. But the fact that he’s the prime suspect behind the murders in Paris’s immortal underworld—murders I must solve in order to clear my suddenly soiled name—means it will take some convincing to get me to partake of the sensual pleasures he offers. Just because I’m naïve doesn’t mean I’m easy. Other than being a murder suspect, conjuring up a demon in the form of a shaggy Newfoundland, and fending off the advances of a horny dragon. I’m having a wonderful time in Paris. Wish you were here….





FIRE ME UP $ 6.99 (Book 2)(366 Pages)








I’m Aisling Grey, and apparently I’m irresistible….





Being quite the novice Guardian/Keeper of the Gates to Hell, I’ve decided to get in touch with my otherworldly self by attending a convention of supernatural beings in Budapest. For my other career as a courier (with a somewhat tarnished reputation), I have to deliver a priceless amulet to a hermit, much to the amusement of Jim, my wisecracking furry Newfoundland demon. He should be happy that I was able to squeak through customs with a talking dog…. And guess who just happens to be staying at the same hotel as I am? Drake. You remember him. The wyvern of the green dragons? My so-called “mate”? the man who literally fires me up and makes me act like a lovesick schoolgirl? That Drake. Meanwhile, mortal men are falling at my feet. I don’t know if it’s the Hungarian air or what, but it’s downright embarrassing. All I want to do is find a Guardian mentor to help me control my powers. Should be easy—expect that every Guardian I meet with winds up dead. I’m starting to get a complex….






LIGHT MY FIRE $ 6.99 (Book 3)(341 Pages)








I’m Aisling Grey, and multitasking is my middle name….




It’s not easy being a demon lord, a Guardian, and a wyvern’s mate all at once. Luckily, I just moved to London to study all things Guardian with my mentor. A new start is exactly what I need after being betrayed (again!) by Drake, wyvern of the green dragons. Though I’m supposedly immortal. I’m not so sure my heart can take another beating. But I’m still officially Drake’s mate—and my presence is required at a meeting of the green dragons. How I’m going to keep my distance from the fire-breathing hunk is beyond me. It doesn’t help that several annoying attempts have been made on my life. Or that I’m wanted by the entire otherworldly population of imps since Jim, my doggie demon sidekick, accidentally ate their ruler. Being an alpha dragon and all, Drake is sure to get protective of me—which might not be a bad thing when war breaks out and all hell breaks loose…literally.







HOLY SMOKE $ 7.99 (Book 4)(348 Pages)








I’m Aisling Grey, but you can call me “frustrated.”



The dragon of my dreams—übersexy Drake Vireo, wyvern of the green dragons—has finally decided to make an honest woman of me. That is, if we ever make it to the wedding at the same time! Being left at the altar may have cooled my jets, but not my passion…a good thing when Drake disappears and it’s up to me to find him.




Most brides just have in-laws to worry about. Me? I have warring dragons, ticked-off demon lords, eternal damnation, and a mage who wants to challenge me for an otherworldly position I don’t even want. At least Jim, my doggie demon, is always at my side. He’s never let me down…yet.

I loved reading the Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts. She used the vampire genre in a new and interesting way that is so her. When I first heard that this was going to involve vampires I thought it might not be very good because Nora Roberts has never written anything with vampires in it. But I was very wrong because the Circle Trilogy books were amazing to read. I couldn't wait to read the next book and I didn't put them down until I finished them all.

Cian was changed by Lilith centuries ago. But now, he stands with the circle. Without hesitation, he will kill others of his kind—and has earned the respect of sorcerer, witch, warrior and shape-shifter. But he wants more than respect from Moira—even though his desire for her makes him vulnerable. For how can a man with an eternity to live love a woman whose life is sure to end—if not by Lilith’s hand, then by the curse of time?

Well I love the IN DEATH series because they are a romantic suspense books set in the future. It started in 2058 but it has progressed to 2060 as the books grew in numbers, and for your information there is 25 books in the IN DEATH series so far and the 26th book comes out next month. The author of this series J.D. Robb started publishing these books in 1995 and since then we now know that J.D. Robb is Nora Roberts. I love Nora Roberts because she is such a talented romance writer and I enjoy all the books that I have read by her. Here is the description from the inside flaps of her book in the latest of her IN DEATH series as J.D. Robb:





Creation in Death by J.D. Robb $ 25.95 (Book 25)(337 pages)




The number-one New York Times-bestselling author of Innocent in Death and Born in Death delivers her explosive new novel. New York City, 2060: Lieutenant Eve Dallas never forgets a corpse. And her new case will resurrect the memories of women she couldn’t save—and the killers she couldn’t capture.

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the sign of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die—in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man whom the media tagged “The Groom” put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. Eve and her partner Feeney, her friends and mentor, couldn’t stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started.

When it turns out that The Groom most recent victim was employed by Eve’s billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case. A move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. With The Groom’s monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim.

But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career—an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he’s never known. Time is running out on another woman’s life…and for Eve.




J.D. Robb has a new book come out next month on Tuesday, February 19. Here is the description of the book that I found at the Barnes and Noble website:




Stranger in Death by J.D. Robb $ 25.95 (Book 26)




Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others—especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed—and strangled—with cords of black velvet.




It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders's scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public—and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders aren't so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas's billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders's sporting-goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access. Before long, she's knocking on doors—or barging through them—to look for the answers she needs.




But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion—or a carefully planned execution? It's up to Dallas to solve a sensational case where all involved guard secrets from one another—and strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways.

I was going through the J.R. Ward BDB forum and I went to the Mansion Library section and I found this author as a topic and her name is Lara Adrian. I read almost all of the post in this topic and I found good reviews on her books so I decided to see if she has a website I could visit. I found out that she did and I found that she has a series called Midnight Breed. I decided to investigate the this series a little further. I found out that she has 3 books out in this series and the 4th book in the series is coming out on Tueday, March 25. I got this from Lara Adrian's website about her Midnight Breed Series:

Prepare for seduction as Lara Adrian unleashes a dark new breed of vampire...


Part human, part otherworldly, the Breed has lived among humankind for thousands of years, maintaining a tentative peace built on secrecy, power, and the dark justice carried out by the formidable warriors of the Order.


But now, a blood war within the race is set to ignite. Vampires are going Rogue in startling numbers, feeding without discretion, killing humans in the streets. It is up to the Order to stop the spreading threat of Rogue domination—and in so doing, each of the warriors will be forced to confront private demons, darkest secrets, deepest fears. Some will know triumph, some will know loss, but each warrior can count on one thing: Love, when it finds him, will often come at the worst possible moment, with the least likely woman...and it will bring each of these powerful males to his knees.





I thought that was very interesting and I thought that I should post it here so that I could share it will the other contributors of this blog and the readers who love to visit it. Here are all 4 book descriptions from Lara Adrian's website:




Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian $ 6.99 (Book 1)






INSATIABLE DESIRE. ENDLESS SEDUCTION. ONE TOUCH IS JUST THE BEGINNING.


He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.



Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.


Here, in the arms of the Breed's formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all....

In a single erotically charged moment Tess is plunged into his world—a shifting, shadowed place where bands of Rogue vampires stalk the night, cutting a swath of terror.


Haunted by visions of a dark future, Dante lives and fights like there is no tomorrow. Tess is a complication he does not need—but now, with his brethren under attack, he must shield Tess from a growing threat that includes Dante himself. For with one reckless, irresistible kiss, she has become an inextricable part of his underworld realm...and his touch awakens her to hidden gifts, desires, and hungers she never knew she possessed. Bonded by blood, Dante and Tess must work together to thwart deadly enemies, even as they discover a passion that transcends the boundaries of life itself....





Midnight Awakening by Lara Adrian $ 6.99 (Book 3)







HE HAS RESISTED TEMPTATION FOR CENTURIES, A STONE-COLD WARRIOR WHOSE FROZEN HEART REFUSES TO THAW—UNTIL HER....

Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that the power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man—the deadliest of the Breed warriors, Tegan.


No stranger to loss, Tegan knows Elise's pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged—a bond that will link them by blood and vow—and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart....



Here is what I could find on her new book in the series from her website. It's not much but here it is:



Midnight Rising by Lara Adrian $ 6.99 (Book 4)(comes out on Tuesday, March 25)







IN A WORLD OF SHADOWS AND DARK, CONSUMING HUNGERS, DESIRE IS THE DEADLIEST WEAPON....

Fueled by pain and rage over a shattering betrayal, the warrior Rio has pledged his life to the war against the Rogues. He will let nothing stand in his way--least of all a mortal woman with the power to expose the entire vampire race. But now an ancient evil has been awakened, and a stunning darkness is on the rise.

For journalist Dylan Alexander, it began with the discovery of a hidden tomb. Suddenly she is at the center of a gathering storm of violence and secrets. But nothing is as dangerous as the scarred, lethally seductive man who rises from the shadows to plunge her into his world of dark desire and endless night. Here she is powerless to resist Rio's touch, even as she uncovers a shocking link to her own past. Now Dylan must choose: Leave Rio's midnight realm, or risk it all for the man who has shown her true passion and the infinite pleasures of the heart....
Lynsay Sands is a very talented author. She does historical romances and vampire romances. This book that I'm reading about is the 7th book in the Argeneau Family Series. Here is the description from the back of the cover:





The Accidental Vampire by Lynsay Sands $ 6.99 (Book 7)





FATE GAVE HER FANGS . . .

Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black’s been catching her z’s in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there’s more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can’t very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she’d meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman—dead or alive.

HE’LL SHOW HER HOW TO USE THEM . . .

Rich, powerful, and drop-dead gorgeous, Victor’s the perfect man for a novice neck-biter like Elvi. He’s willing to teach her everything he knows, but he’ll have to do it fast. Someone’s out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe–and satisfied–for all eternity.



*I really enjoyed the book, I found myself laughing a lot. This is only the 3rd book I've read by her but I will definitely be getting more, especially the rest in this series.

VAMPIRES DON’T EXIST...DO THEY?

Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck...but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she’d be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.

HE’S BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR A WOMAN LIKE HER...

Well, if not forever, at least two hundred years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he’s seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck...he just couldn’t resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long...





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IT WAS A CASE SHE COULD SINK HER TEETH INTO . . .

After seven hundred years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She’s training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal’s mother. It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she’s in way over her head.

Julius Notte wants to protect Marguerite, and not because someone just tried to take her head off. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s his lifemate and he’s determined to woo her. It’s been over five hundred years since he last courted a woman, but surely the techniques haven’t changed. Now if only he can keep her alive–so to speak–so they can have that happily-ever-after.

I started re-reading the Merry Gentry Series by Laurell K. Hamilton since I bought the new Merry Gentry book. So far there are 6 books in the series but there Laurell K. Hamilton has annouced on her website that the 7th book in the series will be called Sallowing Darkness and will come out late in 2008.




A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 7.99 (Book 1)(468 pages)












Meredith Gentry, princess of the high court of Faerie, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, working as a P.I. specializing in supernatural crime. But now the queen’s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her back—whether she likes it or not. Suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her aunt’s deadly game. The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world. The reward: the crown—and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty for failure: death.







A Caress of Twilight by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 7.99 (Book 2)(348 pages)









“I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne—if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.”



After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now while Meredith enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life with the warriors of her royal guard she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that’s just her day job….





Seduced by Moonlight by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 7.50 (Book 3)(409 pages)









“I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. Now there are those among my guards who whisper I am more.”





Meredith’s aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to her niece, hiding among humans in Los Angeles. The queen’s mission to get Meredith pregnant and beat her cousin Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though Meredith spends each night with the queen’s immortal guards, no child has come of their decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. Enemies are growing in number every day. Meredith’s magic surges through her like never before, transforming her in wild and unpredictable ways. And Meredith is just beginning to learn what incredible power she possesses….








A Stroke of Midnight by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 7.99 (Book 4)(385 pages)








“How much of my human side will I give up, and how much of the sinister side of Faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread most.”




In Los Angeles she is Meredith Gentry, private investigator. In the faraway world of Faerie she is Princess Meredith, heir to a dark throne. In this realm of peril and deception, adversaries watch her every move, while the enemies of her aunt, the queen, lay in wait to usurp power for the first time in history, human police will enter Faeries—and Meredith will need all her allies when fate leads her into the arms of Mistral, Master of Storms, the captain of the guard. Their passion will awaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the court—and as Meredith’s enemies gather, both courts of faerie will face dire threat.








Mistral's Kiss by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 23.95 (Book 5)(212 pages)(also in mass market paperback for $ 7.99)








I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne of Faerie. My day job, once upon a time, was a private detective in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, princess has now become a full-time occupation.

My aunt Queen Andais will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in faerie—trapped here with some of the realm’s most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards…and my lovers. For I am compelled to conceive a child: an heir to succeed me on the throne. Yet after months of amazing sex with my consorts, there is still no baby. And no baby means no throne. The only certainly is death at the hands of my cousin Cel, or his followers, if I fail to conceive.

Now Mistral, Queen Andais’s new captain of the guards, has come to my bed—defying her and risking her terrible wrath in doing so. But even she will hesitate to punish him in jealous rage, because our joining has reawakened old magic mystical power so ancient that no one stands against it and survives. Not even my strongest and most favored: my Darkness and my Killing Frost. Not even Mistral himself, my Storm Lord. But because Mistral has helped to bring this magic forth, he may life another day.



If I can reclaim control of the fey power that once was, there may be hope for me and my reign in faerie. I might yet quell the dark schemes and subterfuges surrounding me. Though shadows of obsession and conspiracy gather, I may survive.





A Like of Frost by Laurell K. Hamilton $ 24.95 (Book 6)(272 pages)





I am Meredith Gentry, princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of faerie, onetime private investigator in the mortal world. To be crowned queen, I must first continue the royal bloodline and give birth to an heir of my own. If I fail, my aunt, Queen Andais will be free to do what she most desires: install her twisted son, Cel, as monarch…and kill me.

My royal guards surround me, and my best loved—my Darkness and my Killing Frost—are always beside me, sworn to protect and make love to me. But still the treat grows greater. For despite all my carnal efforts I remain childless, while the machinations of my sinister, sadistic Queen and her confederates remain tireless. So my bodyguards and I have slipped back into Los Angeles, hoping to outrun the gathering shadows of court intrigue. But even exile isn’t enough to escape the grasp of those with dark designs.



Now King Taranis, powerful and vain-glorious ruler of faerie’s Seelie Court, has leveled accusations against my noble guards of a heinous crime—and has gone so far as to ask the mortal authorities to prosecute. If he succeeds, my men face extradition to faerie and the hideous penalties that await them there. But I know that Taranis’s charges are baseless, and I sense that his true target is me. He tried to kill me when I was a child. Now I fear his intentions are far more terrifying.

Phoebe Jordan
I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre.
 
I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books.

I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
