June 16: “Taken By Midnight” by Lara Adrian, book 8 in the Midnight Breed series, a paranormal romance at 370 pages. Blurb from book: In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes are taking place within her as she struggles to understand—and control—a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the
compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose very existence
is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps the most mysterious of them all is Brock, a
brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands hold the power to comfort, heal…and
arouse. As she recovers under Brock’s care, Jenna finds herself drawn to the
Order’s mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of assassins from
subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite of their resolve, a purely
physical relationship without strings soon binds Brock and Jenna together with
a desire fiercer than life and stronger than death itself—until a secret from
Brock’s past and Jenna’s own mortality challenge their forbidden love to the
ultimate trial by fire. If anyone looked at my stats (and they’re
posted somewhere, I’m sure), you’d wonder if I enjoyed reading this book
because it took me nearly two weeks to read. Yes. TWO. WEEKS. But sometimes
life (and work) just get in the way and the first thing to go is reading.
Doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the story because I did. Very much. Sure made it
hard on me to work, though (because I kept wanting to pick it up and read!).
But once I got down to 60 or so pages remaining (about 90 minutes worth of
reading), I pretty much said “forget it,” and finished it. I enjoyed reading
about Brock and Jenna and the continuing storyline is keeping me hooked (as is
the writing). I love this series. Boston
I’ve got a Goodreads giveaway starting today where you can enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of Bite Me, I’m Yours. I’ll eventually have something in the sidebar where you can click to enter, but you should be able to see the giveaway on the book page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22647199-bite-me-i-m-yours
I just thought it would be nice to give away a copy of this book to celebrate the release of A Vampire Wedding. I mean, it is the book that made the novella possible. Plus, I’m hoping it generates some interest (for both books). I’m still trying to find my audience (which is not an easy thing to do nowadays).
So… Got any vacation plans this summer? How about weekend trips? Hubby and I are going up to
Chicago (and ) for a weekend
trip next month (found a great rate on a hotel room). Planning on returning
with a trunk load of Kringles, too. Man, are we hooked on those things!
Hopefully Hubby won’t have any problems eating them by then (although he’s
doing pretty darn good at eating right now—yay!). Wisconsin
