Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on my post. Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book and on the last Saturday of the month post a review.
This month I’m trying to hop back on the wagon with My #2017HW. I did so well the first quarter, but second quarter was an F. I did not read my books in July, but I can try for a B still, right? All three of these are physical reads off my list that I particularly wanted to read. Help me pick!
August 2017 ChoicesDead Heat by Patricia Briggs
Series: Alpha & Omega #4
Published by Ace on March 3rd 2015
Genres: Urban Fantasy
I’ve been away from this series for far too long!
For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal--or at least it starts out that way...Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.
I can’t believe I’ve fallen so far behind on such a beloved series for me… 🙁
Surrender to the Devil by Lorraine Heath
Series: Scoundrels of St. James #3
Published by Avon on June 30th 2009
Genres: Historical, Romance
I know this author personally – she’s in my book club – and I’ve NEVER read her. And she wins awards all the time at RT, so I know she’s damn good. This is book 3, which I usually wouldn’t do, but it’s the only one I have and I’ve been told it works as a standalone.
A Devilish Duke on a Quest for Pleasure...
Frannie Darling was once a child of London's roughest streets, surrounded by petty thieves, pickpockets, and worse. But though she survived this harsh upbringing to become a woman of incomparable beauty, Frannie wants nothing to do with the men who lust for her, the rogues who frequent the gaming hall where she works. She can take care of herself and feels perfectly safe on her own—safe, that is, until he strides into her world, and once again it becomes a very dangerous place indeed.
To bed her but not wed her. That's what Sterling Mabry, the eighth Duke of Greystone, wants. But Frannie abhors arrogant aristocrats interested only in their own pleasure. So why then does the thought of an illicit tryst with the devilish duke leave her trembling with desire? Her willing body begs for release... and a wicked, wonderful surrender.
Written in Red by Anne Bishop
Series: The Others #1
Published by Roc on March 5th 2013
Genres: Urban Fantasy
I tried reading this years ago on audio and it did not work for me, but I think it was a combination of wrong time and not a book I’m meant to read on audio. So I really want to try it again!
No one creates realms like New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entities—vampires and shape-shifters among them—who rule the Earth and whose prey are humans.
As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others.
Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she’s keeping a secret, and second, she doesn’t smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she’s wanted by the government, he’ll have to decide if she’s worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.
Now Vote!! Which of my August 2017 choices do you think I should read?
