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 Choices

My TBR List August 2017 ChoicesDead Heat by Patricia Briggs
Series: Alpha & Omega #4
Published by Ace on March 3rd 2015
Genres: Urban Fantasy
Pages: 324
Format: Hardcover
Source: Purchased

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’ve been away from this series for far too long!
I can’t believe I’ve fallen so far behind on such a beloved series for me… 🙁

My TBR List August 2017 ChoicesSurrender to the Devil by Lorraine Heath
Series: Scoundrels of St. James #3
Published by Avon on June 30th 2009
Genres: Historical, Romance
Pages: 384
Format: Paperback
Source: Gift

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.

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.

My TBR List August 2017 ChoicesWritten in Red by Anne Bishop
Series: The Others #1
Published by Roc on March 5th 2013
Genres: Urban Fantasy
Pages: 433
Format: Hardcover

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.

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!

  1. I aw Dead Heat and thought that’s easy and then I saw Written in Red further down the page. Written in Red! NOW! I’ve read both and they are both really really amazing. Some of the best possible choices. You can’t go wrong with either of them. I don’t read historical romance so who knows about the middle one? Anne

    • Lol that’s why I’m making y’all vote! I think The Others is going to win, so I’m excited about starting it!

  2. No-brainer for me this month! Written in Red all the way! I read the whole series on audio and absolutely loved it. My husband and I actually listed to the series together and enjoyed it so much that he recently suggested doing a re-read. Can’t wait to see which book wins! 🙂

    • Thanks! I do love Patricia Briggs too, but I hear amazing things about Bishops series. I think I’ll be happy whatever wins 🙂
