Synopsis:

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

I could do this the whole day. LOL. But I can also say just check out my 2015 shelf on Goodreads ;).

Also I was feeling lazy, so I just linked to the books on Goodreads without a reason for loving them. I just did, what more to say?

TT #38 / FTPI #26

The Lilypad

I decided to combine the Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB from A Daily Rhythm, with the First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea.


Today I decided to feature Burn For Me by Ilona Andrews

Opening:

Prologue

“I can’t let you do this. I won’t. Kelly, the man is insane.”
Kelly Waller reached over and touched her husband’s hand, looking for reassurance. He took his hand off the wheel and squeezed her fingers. Strange how intimate a touch can be, she thought. That touch, fueled by twenty years of love, had served as her rock in the nightmarish storm of the past forty-eight hours. Without it, she would have been screaming.
“He won’t hurt me. We’re family.”
“You told me yourself he hates his family.”
“I have to try,” she said. “They’ll kill our boy.”

Teaser from 87%:

You know what? No: if he ever fell in love, it wouldn’t be a great romantic devotion. It would be an exercise in frustration and lust, and at the end of it his significant other would strangle him.

Book Haul #1 (Oktober 2014)

I saw this kind of post a while back at the blog of Sound Of A Voice and I was allowed to steal it, so thanks again 🙂

I won’t name the books I got for free or from NetGalley, only the once I actually spend money on.

Originally I wanted to put the cover and the blurb on this post, but that would have been to long. So if you like a cover, just click on it and you will forwarded to Goodreads.

And I decided to name tv shows, if I watched a bunch of episodes.

E-BOOKS:

Kiss of Frost von Jennifer Estep

Archangel’s Shadows von Nalini Singh

Immune von Shannon Mayer

 

Burn for me von Ilona Andrews

Deep in Death von Colleen Helme

Stone Cold Touch von Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

Paperbacks (all on discount):

Divine Misdemeanors von Laurell K. Hamilton

Auf den Schwinger der Nacht von Heather Terrell

London Road von Samantha Young

About a Girl von Lindsey Kelk


_________________________________________________________________________

Watched:

I watched all season that are available in Germany. So in total I watched season 1-6 or 95 episodes.

__________________________________________________________________________

Conclusion: I buy and read too much (and watch too much tv), but I publish not enough reviews. So next month I will post two reviews each week (I think…)

Teaser Tuesday #11

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book event, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

___________________________________________________________________________

Today I finally got three books I’m about to read, so I thought I post a quote from each book. It will be a teaser for me too and  it will make choosing which to read first even more difficult.

 
All the women were dressed in a style Ashwini had termed “vamp couture”. Leisel’s dress was heavy aqua silk bordered with lace of the same shade, the lush fabric and simple style throwing the rich hue of her skin into sharp relief.

“I don’t know if there’s a way to stop them from losing their souls and turning into wraiths. There could be more than the four we know of. Hundreds are … infected by it.”
– Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Kindle-position 1709, October 2014


 

Three cop cars, their sirens screaming, barreled down the opposite lane. Good. As far as I was concerned, Mad Rogan could deal with them and leave me the hell alone.
