Lunar Shadows, TF Walsh

lunarshdecover

A powerful seer. A fight to stay alive.
A soulmate to protect.

Zana believes she can stop death. After all, why else would she receive prophetic dreams? Now she just has to actually save someone. But nothing prepares her for the Lunar Festival’s events; a tragic death, her vile ex acting all cave-man on her, and the sudden appearance of Shadow, a hunky and arrogant Guardian from the kingdom. Except, she’s done with men after what her last one did to her. But when her latest vision shows Shadow’s demise, she is determined to prove her gift is a blessing, not a curse.

Shadow is visiting his uncle for a small vacation. When he stumbles across a murdered family member, eliminating the threat is a must. Bumping into Zana at the crime scene, a beautiful vixen, smart and stubborn, has him questioning her involvement. But when she declares he’s in danger and will protect him, he’s not sure if he should be flattered or insulted.

As they close in on the killer, Shadow starts to believe the real danger might be losing Zana and the grip she has on his heart. Will Zana and Shadow survive a danger beyond their imagination?

My Torin, K Webster

front only

I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.

Until he shows up.

Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.

His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.

Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here.

What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.

It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.

What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.

Fallen Ashes, TF Walsh

fallen ashes

As the last of her kind, Fallen awakes in a holding cell, but being locked up is the least of her problems.

She’s been magically bound to a cocky Queen’s Guardian named Saber. Because Fallen is the last dragon shifter in Tapestry, she’s on everyone’s hit list… especially his… but she doesn’t have time to die by his hand. Fallen has to find her life mate in four weeks or else all of creation in her world will be destroyed.

Saber never asked to be brought to life. He certainly never wanted to be hexed and forced to transform into a mindless shadow assassin. Exiled from the Kingdom, he must rescue his stepfather from the Collector to prove his innocence. Otherwise he’ll be hunted and killed. But his plans are temporarily put on hold when he’s captured, imprisoned, and bound to a mysterious blond-haired vixen with a major fire addiction.

With time ticking away for Saber and Fallen, will the two be able to come together to defeat the Collector and save themselves, along with the rest of the world?

This Mortal Coil, Emily Suvada

mortal

Catarina Agatta is a hacker.

She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. and Cat happens to be a game-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Not Cat must decide who she can trust:
The soldier with secrets of his own?
The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs?
In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

Maverick Prince risked everything for Lo, but it was worth it to see her smile. Only now he’s painted a target on her back and he refuses to let that happen. The only way to protect her is to do what Princes do best — play the game and stick to the rules.

Ghosts and Grudges, Jasmine Walt + J.A. Cipriano

ghosts

A hidden world. An ancient power. A trio of hunky, dangerous shamans.

What could possibly go wrong?

When an ancient spirit awakens a hidden ability within Aika, grateful is the last word that comes to her mind. Being able to summon monsters and spirits to do your bidding might sound cool in comic books, but in real life it brings nothing but trouble. And between chasing after a medical degree, caring for her ailing mother, and running the family business, she’s got plenty to deal with.

Unfortunately, Aika doesn’t have the luxury of ignoring her new abilities. An ancient, powerful evil has taken her mother, and the only way to free her is for Aika to embrace her heritage. Luckily, a couple of hunky shamans have recently taken an interest in Aika, whose abilities are unique from others of her kind. They’re willing to train her, and even fight by her side.

But the more time Aika spends with her guys, the more she realizes that they might not be what they seem. The truth is just out of reach, and once Aika uncovers it, she’ll either find the key to saving their world…

… or destroy the best thing she’s ever had.


AUTHOR’S NOTE:
If you can’t stand the idea of a girl having relationships with multiple guys and who does NOT have to choose between them, this book is not for you. There’s also a sprinkling of swear words, some hot kissing and sexual tension, and plenty of action scenes. You have been warned!

Dear Reader,

Another book with Japanese lore! I absolutely love reading about Japanese myths and monsters because I used to be addicted to anime as a kid (current status shall never be revealed) so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that shamans were gonna be a big thing in this series. And it’s a Shaman Queen series! I’m so excited! Who else is getting Shaman King flashbacks? Think there’ll be a duel? *tee hee*

It started off well enough. Grounded college girl struggling to get her degree and take care of her cancer-ridden mother while running the family restaurant. I liked that she was sensible and had a sense of responsibility. Then when everything went to hell, I just kept laughing at her thinking, ‘This poor girl’. She did suck the fun out of it sometimes, but I couldn’t really blame her, considering she relied on her plan to make things work. Hot guys and killer ghosts were definitely not part of it.

As a reverse harem, I thought it did alright. Not nearly as convincing for this reader, because Aika had serious chemistry with Raiden while (what felt like) randomly craving Shota. I get that she knew Shota longer, but it just didn’t feel right. I think if she’d been more forthcoming with her emotions and inner thoughts, I wouldn’t have felt like it came out of nowhere. And don’t even get me started on Kai…

Drama-wise, it was way up there. Especially when Kai came into play. lol. A few times, it felt like things were being tried a little too hard, but it’s either because I’m technically reading a new author or because I just have these weirdly high expectations of books that deal with Japanese myths and flare. I’ve read some books that totally hit the nail, and I just assumed this would be like them.

Will I read the second book? Hell, yes. At first, I didn’t know how to enjoy this. Aika was stressing everyone out with her need to save okaasan and fight them every which way to be normal again, but then they started doing these adventures, and the light bulb went off in my head like, “Oh, take it like an adventure novel!” And then the story flowed a lot easier from there. The thing was fairly predictable, and Aika took some getting used to, but in the end, it was an overall entertaining read that made me happy to see some Asian myths again.

Happy Reading,

A Little Darling

Thirsty, Mia Hopkins

thirsy

My name is Salvador Rosas.

Back in the barrio, my past is written on the walls: ESHB. Short for East Side Hollenbeck, my father’s gang — my gang. Hell, it’s a family tradition, one that sent both my brothers away. They used to call me “Ghost” because I haunted people’s dreams. Now I’ve got nothing going for me except a hipster gringo mentoring me in a new career. An ex-con making craft beer?

No mames.

Still, people in this neighborhood look out for one another. That’s how I became Vanessa Velasco’s unwelcome tenant. Chiquita pero picosa. She’s little, but with curves so sweet they’re dangerous. I remember Vanessa from the old days, the straight-A student with big plans. Plans that were derailed by another kid stupid enough to think he was bulletproof. Now Vanessa knows better than to believe in empty promises. There’s fire in her… and if I touch her, I might get burned.

I’m trying everything I can to go straight. But when East Side Hollenbeck comes calling, I might have to risk it all to find out if there’s a future for Vanessa and me. Because she’s the only one who can quench my thirst for something real.
