Synopsis:

The “smoldering heat, epic romance, and awesome action” of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as two Arrows find themselves caught in a chilling conspiracy that spans all three races…

Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.

And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what.

This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.

“Waiting On” Wednesday #1

a12c9-new2bwow

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I haven’t done a post like this for a long time, but I felt like writing one today. Also I will start the count anew

So this week I’m waiting for not only one, but two books 😉 I’m really uncertain with which I will start first next week, because that’s a really tough choice :/

#1: A Sorceress Of His Own by Dianne Duvall

Publication Date: June 02

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Immortal Guardians series comes an enchanting new series full of romance, danger, and loyalty: The Gifted Ones

Since the day Lord Dillon earned his spurs, rumors of his savagery on the battlefield have preceded him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear. Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear, but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence. Perhaps because she garners the same fear in others that he does himself.

For seven years, Alyssa has been by Lord Dillon’s side, counseling him from the shadows, healing him with her hands, and staving off the worst of his loneliness while his fearsome reputation keeps others at bay. Blessed–or cursed–with gifts that label her a sorceress, she is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for him beneath umbral robes that lead Dillon and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.

All is revealed, however, and passions flare when an enemy threatens Dillon’s life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him. When Dillon discovers that the wisewoman is far from elderly, he is instantly entranced. And, as he and Alyssa work together to defeat an enemy bent on destroying them both, Dillon will risk anything–even the wrath of his king–to be with her.

Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer

I’m more like a mood reader, but I’m 100% positive I will read the following books in the summer.
(Click on the tiny covers to be guided to GoodReads)

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout
It’s the last in the Dark Elements series and I just need to know how it will all end and who Layla will choose. Let it be Roth, otherwise I’m going to hit something.

Shards Of Hope by Nalini Singh
I have to confess I’m not really prone of those Psy + Psy constellations, I want my Psy + changeling couples back, but I’m going to read this one anyway. Did you know this is probably the longest series I have ever read. With Shards Of Hope it reached 13 books.

Shadow Strikes by Dianne Duvall
I’m so going to devour this. I just loved every book of this series till now and I don’t see that streak breaking. F-U-N ! … Now the Spongebob song is stuck inside my head…

A Sorceress of His Own by Dianne Duvall
This is the first in a new series of Miss Duvall. I’m kind of wary when it comes to historicals, but I will give it a try, because I love her other series. And I’m always trying to find new genres for me, because just PNR and UF gets boring with some time.

Burned by Darkness by Alexandra Ivy
This is a brand-new series by Alexandra Ivy and it will feature dragons, so I’m delving into a kind-of-new supernatural theme for me. The only dragons I have ever read about are the ones from the Eragon series.

Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh
This book will be about Naasir and I really need to read this, because I must find out what Naasir is. Also that guy is adorable … in his be-careful-when-you-touch-him-otherwise-he-will-bite-of-your-hand kind of way. I’m wondering who will be his match.

Deal With the Devil by Cynthia Eden
A season list without a Cynthia Eden books wouldn’t be a list of mine, so here it is 😉 It’s the fourth book of the Purgatory series and I can’t wait to see who Eric Pate’s woman will be. I hope she lets him work a lot before she gives in.

Like I said I’m more like a mood reader, so I will stop here now. 🙂

I saw a lot of people do this meme, so I wanted to give a try too. This weeks theme is: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2015

This is for the most part like my TTT from two weeks ago. I kind of copy and pasted it for this post ;P

      1. Shards Of Hope (Psy/Changeling #14) by Nalini Singh: Even though I thought that Shield of Winter was lacking something, I still need this sequel. Like now.
      2. Untitled Immortal Guardians #6 by Dianne Duvall: I love this series and I’m sad that I have to wait a year between each installment. September, hurry up!
      3. Every Last Breath (Dark Elements #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Book #2 ended with a freaking cliffhanger, so I need this. Yesterday.
      4. Bound by Flames (Night Prince #3) by Jeaniene Frost: I’m waiting since a little bit under 2 years for this book. So I’m really happy that it will finally hit the stores in January 2015, after delaying the book for 3 times.
      5. Vision In Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop: I still need to get my own copy of book #2 Murder of Crows but I already read it, so I’m patiently waiting for this one.
      6. Untitled Guild Hunter #7 by Nalini Singh: If this book is again about Elena and Raphael then I will get mad. I need Naasir or Venom or Illium, I do not care which one, but please one of them!
      7. Cursed by Fire by Jacquelyn Frank: It’s a first in a new series and my first book of her since the end of the Nightwalker series, so we will see 🙂
      8. Confession by Cynthia Eden: It’s the first in a new romatic-suspense-series by her and I’m dying to read this.
      9. Of Silk And Steam by Bec McMaster: Okay, I said I wouldn’t read this book but I will probably still read it. I just can’t decide.
      10. Chase The Darkness by J.D.Tyler: I am way behind on this series, but I’m still waiting for this book and maybe by August I have read all the other ones in the series.

I did it! Yeay! Party Time 🙂

Next weeks theme will be: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014
