Is It Release Day Yet?

Are you as excited about the release of Blade of Darkness as I am?? I love, love, love Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series. In my opinion, it has been too long since the last installment *wink*

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 6.48.21 PM

If you haven’t read any of her books, I highly recommend you do. Start with the first book in the series, Darkness Dawns. (The upcoming release is #7.)

The Immortal Guardians series is paranormal romance. Always lots of action and, of course, hunky heroes. As in, did you notice the cover of this release *wipes drool from chin*

Blade of Darkness will be released on September 19th. Woohoo! Make a note. You don’t want to miss it *grins*

Here’s the synopsis: 

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember. But she never saw Aidan coming. When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception… and passion. Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan’s arms and in his bed. Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

Immortal Guardian Aidan O’Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don’t trouble him. The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan’s brethren turning against him, so he can’t help but feel alarmed. While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

Here’s a tidbit from the novel (trust me, it’s not long enough. If you’re like me, you want more!):

Aidan and Dana, the hero and heroine:

“You think I’m a geek now, don’t you?” he jested.

She relaxed a little more. “No.”

“First I say fanny. Now this.”

She smiled. “Actually, I thought your fanny was cute.” Her eyes widened. “The fanny,” she corrected hastily. “I thought the fanny was cute. Your saying it, I mean.”

He winked. “I prefer the first one.”

She laughed. “I bet you do.”

Top Ten Tuesday: Fall PNR TBR

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve tweaked this week’s topic just a bit. The Broke and the Bookish sponsor the posts so be sure to stop by and check out what other bloggers will be reading.

Technically, this week’s topic is the Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR. I’m going to make my list a bit more specific…since I’m into reading Paranormal Romance/ Urban Fantasy of late (amongst my non-fiction reads), I’m going to focus on newly released (or to-be-released) PNR books.

Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Are you looking forward to reading any of the same books?

Top Ten Books on My Fall PNR TBR List

(these are in no particular order)

  1. Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels #8) by Ilona Andrews — I love me some Kate and Curran!
  2. Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy #1) by JR Ward — I know, after The Shadows, I said I was done with the BDB. However, I will probably still give this one a try *sigh*
  3. Born of Betrayal (The League #10) by Sherrilyn Kenyon — Love The League and so looking forward to Fain’s book.
  4. Bound to Darkness (Midnight Breed #13) by Lara Adrian — I’ve gotten behind in the Midnight Breed series and need to catch-up. I found I liked her books better once I got farther into the series.
  5. Rage/ Killian (Bayou Heat 17 & 18) by Alexandra Ivy & Laura Wright — some sexy pumas, hell yeah!
  6. Stolen & Forgiven (Branded Packs #1) by Alexandra Ivy & Carrie Ann Ryan — if I’m not mistaken, this is a new series. Can’t wait to check it out!

You’ll notice Chloe Neill and Patricia Briggs are missing. No new ones from them until 2016 *sad face*

Top Ten Tuesday: Wolf/ Shifter Romance Reads

This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie—the blogger gets to choose the topic. I’ve been reading a lot of PNR lately so I wanted something along those lines. I checked out some of the lists on Goodreads and got my idea.

I’m doing a Top Ten of the Best Wolf/ Shifter Books that I’ve read (most of these, if not all, are going to be romance).

toptentuesday

Be sure to stop by The Broke and the Bookish…see what others have chosen.

What are your thoughts? Have you read any of these?? (By the way, they are listed in no particular order.)

Top Ten Tuesday Wolf/ Shifter (Romance) Reads

  1. Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1)  by Patricia Briggs. Mercy shifts into a coyote in this series. There are also a host of paranormal characters, too.
  2. Bitten (Women of the Otherworld #1) by Kelley Armstrong. In this series, Elena Michaels is a werewolf.
  3. Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews. Can’t skip over Curran, the mighty lion shifter!
  4. Pride Mates (Shifters Unbound #1) by Jennifer Ashley. Liam’s the shifter in this book, and wouldn’t you know I don’t remember his animal?? Someone help me out here, please 🙂 I want to say cats, but I’m not sure.
  5. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf #1) by Molly Harper. This was very entertaining, and obviously, the title tells you the kind of shifter. LOL
  6. Nightshade (Nightshade #1) by Andrea Creamer. More wolves in this one.
  7. Bear Necessities (Halle Shifters #1) by Dana Marie Bell. If you guessed bears, you’d be right!
  8. Crux (Southern Arcana #1) by Moira Rogers. Magic and shifters abound in this one. Great series if you haven’t checked it out.
  9. The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) by Gena Showalter. Maddox isn’t technically a shifter, but he is filled with a demon. Hopefully that’s close enough to count!
  10. Scent of Darkness (Darkness Chosen #1) by Christina Dodd. Another wolf (I seem to like these!)
  11. Hotter after Midnight (Midnight #1) by Cynthia Eden. Colin’s a sexy wolf shifter.
  12. Moonlight (Moon #1) by Lisa Kessler. Adam’s one hot werewolf!
  13. Hakan/ Severin (Bayou Heat #11-12) by Alexandra Ivy. This whole series is hot…lots of puma shifters!
  14. Chosen by Fate (Para-Ops #2) by Virna DePaul. This has both vampires, wraiths, and werewolves.
  15. Claimed by the Wolf (Shadow Guardians #1) by Charlene Teglia. Lots of sups and shifters in this one.
  16. Megan’s Mark (Breeds #7) by Lora Leigh. Yummy cat shifters.

Awesome PNR Read: Shadows Strike

What is the measure of a good read? In my opinion, a book that sticks with you after you’ve finished it. This morning I Shadows_Strikefinished reading Shadows Strike (Immortal Guardians #6) by Dianne Duvall. The Immortal Guardian series is one of my absolute favorite PNR series. I always look forward to the next release (how soon is the next book coming out???). Shadows Strike is Ethan and Heather’s story. I have to say that I completely enjoyed it.

And, even though I finished the book, this afternoon I found myself thinking about the Immortal Guardians and their war against one Other in particular. I just loved how Ethan and Heather came together, and how Seth, David, Zach and the others battle huge numbers of vampires that were attacking military bases in an attempt to trigger World War III.

I wondered how the chicken dinner went with Heather’s father. She and Ethan dumped a lot of news on him in a short amount of time. I think he will truly welcome Ethan a son-in-law. Plus, I can’t wait for a demo from Heather *wink wink*

Blurb:

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes. Continue reading “Awesome PNR Read: Shadows Strike”
