Summer reads!

I can't believe it, but summer is almost here! I love summer reads. Here's a list of some of the books I'm looking forward to.

Live fast, fight hard and if you have to die then take as many of your enemies with you as you can. That is the Amazon credo and it was one Samia lived and died by. Now in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there’s a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she’s ever faced before.

Shapeshifter Dev Peltier has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years and in that time, he’s seen it all. Or so he thought. Now their enemies have discovered a new source of power- one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date.

The war is on and Dev and Sam are guarding ground zero. But in order to win, they will have to break the most cardinal of all rules and pray it doesn’t unravel the universe as we know it.

The Dark Hunter books will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been so curious about Dev for a while now and I can't wait to delve into his story. Kenyon's hunters are always on my must read list.
Releases August 3

Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she’s only imagined in her worst nightmares.

At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master Vampire who thought he’d seen it all. Then Kira appears—this fearless, beautiful…human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life, yet sending her away is unthinkable.

But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose between the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.

I just found Jeaniene Frost's books late last year and let me say, they were the BEST discovery I have found in a long, long time. She quickly shot up into one of my favorite authors of all time. This is the second book in the Night Huntress World and I'm sure I will love it just as much as the first. Though... I don't think anyone will ever take the place of Bones in my heart. He's from the Night Huntress series and if you haven't read them, YOU HAVE TO! LOL. My favorite series now. I can't get enough of her books!
Releases July 27

Welcome to Destiny, Ohio—where two families have been at odds as long as anyone in town can remember.

Rachel Farris returned to her childhood home with one mission in mind: get Mike Romo out of her family’s apple orchard business and out of their lives. But hard-nosed and totally hot Mike, who happens to be the law in Destiny, is convinced the Farris clan stole the land from his family fifty years ago and he’s not backing down. Even when shapely trouble shows up in a pair of designer blue jeans. However, neither the hunky cop nor the sexy prodigal hometown girl can anticipate the electricity that heats things up whenever they’re together—adding new sizzle to an ongoing feud that’s raged for generations, and soon putting both their hearts at risk.

If you like emotional, SEXY reads that Toni Blake is the author for you. I just love her stuff. She always knows how to tug at the heartstrings. This is the second book in her Destiny series and one I know will go on my keeper self. Added to that she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Can't lose with her books.

What summer reads are you looking forward to?

I'm really looking forward to Nalini Singh's Bonds of Justice that comes out in July. Shelly Laurenston's Beast Behaving Badly is coming out in June. And while it's borderline summer... Lara Adrian's Taken by Midnight comes out late September. There's a lot more but I figured those are the ones that most people would be aware of! LOL.

Sorry! One more book since I'm betting I'll be making a list here of reads to pick up. LOL. Lynsay Sand's Born to Bite comes out late August. I love that series.
