Something About You by Julie James - Oh my freaking God, somebody strap me down. I have mad fan-love for this author. I've heard this one is a bit different - more suspensy, more spicy - than her previous two, but that has diminished my anticipation not a jot. (Not even one little jot!) And now the day has arrived. The moment is here. The book releaseth. And I'm going to run right out and buy my copy. Will I read it right away? Probably not. I'll want to cuddle it and admire it on my nightstand, carry it around with me as a security blanket for a while first - so don't tell me spoilers! (Plugging my ears and singing "La la la la!" - cuz I'm all about the maturity.)
Blood & Destiny by Kaye Chambers - I got a sneak peek at this one, because I know the author and I am not above exploiting that friendship. Fair warning: I'm hella biased. But if you like early LKH & Patricia Briggs, Kaye Chambers has an offering you really ought to check out. Our shape-shifter PI heroine is tangled up in an off-again-on-again with a seductive vamp while trying to solve a missing persons case... just as the new cat in town starts poking his nose into her business. Oh what a tangled web...
Warrior Ascended by Addison Fox - Fellow Golden Heart finalist Addison Fox releases the first book of her Zodiac Warriors series today! I'm psyched because 1) I totally know her! 2) I'm a Leo! The hero is the Leo Warrior! and 3) I'm a total nerd for all things Egypt. Ancient paranormal strife? Gods a-meddling? Yes, please. I'll take a double helping.
Training the Receptionist by Juniper Bell - I love Juniper. She has a way of bringing emotional realism to some very naughty situations. I can only anticipate that Training the Receptionist will be no exception. I have a feeling this is a "check your pacemaker before starting" type read - which has my little toes curling in anticipation.
Oh, and did you know a new Kresley Cole, Pleasure of a Dark Prince, released just two weeks ago? Which answers the question: Why, yes, that was me making the little "eep! eep! eep!" noise of delirious glee in the stacks at Borders last night.
It's a good week to be a booklover, folks. A very good week.
