Books That Caught My Eye

Interested in some possible unknown reads that should be on your future TBR radar?
.
Seducer by Kayla Gray (Kensington, February 2009)
**At least we see most of his face on this cover**


IT ONLY TAKES ONE KISS . . .
When infamous rogue pirate Captain Angel storms aboard the merchant ship Oxford, he discovers more than just valuable cargo. He learns that one of the ladies aboard is the fiancee of his most hated rival. Angel can see that Madelaine Hartwell is quite a prize. For bedding her will give him both sweet revenge and immense pleasure. . . .
TO SEAL THEIR FATE FOREVER . . .
If Madelaine Hartwell's true identity is discovered, she could hang for a crime she committed in self-defense. But Angel believes her to be a betrothed lady, and Madelaine hopes his mistake will ensure her safety. As the two clash, Madelaine can't deny the simmering attraction that's heating up--and she may have no choice but to surrender to the pirate's enticing touch. . . .

Kmont at Lurv A La Mode brought this book to my attention: Ravenous by Sharon Ashwood (Signet, February 2009)
**Don't we all enjoy wearing that type of top and long point knife?**

One kiss is all it takes to lose your soul…
Holly Carver is a small-time witch who busts ghosts for tuition money, but ends up wrangling a demon when a haunted house job goes bad.
Her Undead business associate, Alessandro Caravelli, suspects the demon is somebody's not-so-secret weapon. The supernatural community is at war, and Holly's unpredictable magic holds the key to hell's doorway. Soon Holly is on everyone's "must have" list, and not in a good way.
Alessandro wants her for more than magic. A lover with six centuries of experience, the vampire is walking seduction, but he's also a predator. Every moment he spends guarding Holly, every second he spends falling under her witch's spell, he becomes more and more of a threat himself. As Holly's sharp-tongued grandma warns her: vampires are like a box of rich chocolate—they seem so tempting, but over-indulgence is a killer…

Heather at The Galaxy Quest has a new debut author you should all check out: Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger (Berkely, August 2009)

**She also has a nifty blog called the Butterfly Blog.**

In a universe torn apart by civil war, a warrior and a slave must fight for their freedom, for their lives, and for a love that may destroy them both…
After five years behind enemy lines, Captain Cyani is ready to retire to her homeworld of Azra as one of the Elite — the celibate warrior sisterhood that rules the planet. But first she must complete one final mission to rescue her fellow Union soldiers. The last thing she expects to find is a prisoner, chained and beaten — but radiating feral power and an unbroken spirit…
Soren is a Byralen, an enigmatic people who possess a unique hormone that they use to bond with their mates — and that is sold as a sexual narcotic in the shadow trade. For years, he has endured torture at the hands of his captors as they leeched his very essence. The last thing he expects is to be freed from slavery by a beautiful warrior woman with radiant blue eyes.
Driven by her rigid sense of honor, Cyani frees Soren even though her life hinges upon the success of her mission. But after so many years in bondage, his hormones are so unbalanced that he will die if he does not bond with a woman. Can the lovely but distant warrior be the woman he needs to survive, or will the forbidden bond destroy them.

Amie: You prev! But now that I look closely... :P

kmont said...

ROFL at Amie's comment. I was a bit more...innocent. I thought they did that in lieu of having to do something historically accurate. Or, technically, I guess it is historically accurate if we look at Amie's comment again! *g*

Jess Granger's sounds good! Adding to the TBB list and thank youuuuuu!

Amie Stuart said...

I am a perv. Apparently so is the cover artist LOL

Look at his FACE and tell me he's not got a hand wrapped around his BFF?!?

All teasing aside, I think this is a great cover--very sexay! The dude reminds me of John Stamos!

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

He must have a long BFF because his arm is going past that point. Perhaps he is meditating?
*snort*

sula said...

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

Sula: The Masturbating Rogue Pirate, does have a nice ring to it :D

little alys said...

I'm totally excited about all three. Booookkkssss....

I'm sure we can all use an image of a rogue pirate masturbating.

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

Especially if it is Richard Armitage as a leather wearing pirate.

Kate Diamond said...

I know this is off-topic but it's good info for readers (and time is a factor). So...

I'm blogging about some free e-book downloads from Samhain! Check it out:

Love pirate books! Thanks for the heads up.

Heather said...

Thanks for the linkage, KB! I read Jess's excerpt and it's very exciting. So cool to see nanotechnology in a futuristic romance. And I drooled a bit over the man backy cover, I must say. But it really fits the story.
