WoW [180] - Mind Magic

Title: Mind Magic
Author: Eileen Wilks
Series: World of the Lupi #12
Release Date: November 3rd 2015

FBI agent Lily Yu’s mind is a dangerous place to be in the latest Novel of the Lupi…

Thanks to the mindspeech lessons she’s receiving from the black dragon, Lily is temporarily benched from Unit Twelve—until her brain acclimates and the risk of total burnout passes. At least she has her new husband, lupi Rule Turner, to keep her occupied.

But when her mentor calls in a favor and sends Lily to a murder scene, she’s suddenly back on active status—despite the hallucinations she can’t keep at bay. With one touch, Lily knows the man was killed by magic, but her senses don’t warn her how far the conspiracy goes…

A shadowy force within the government wants to take Unit Twelve down, and they don’t mind killing to achieve their goal. With none of her usual resources, Lily is up against impossible odds–because with her mind in disarray, she can’t trust anything she sees.
Why I am waiting:
While this being book 12 in the series is slightly making me go eek since I haven't even read book 1 yet. I'm still interested to see this one come out. The series looks interesting. Let me know if you've read this series before!

Giveaway: Wicked Reads



We're entering my favorite time of year! I love Halloween, it's one of my favorite holidays AND it's generally the time Texas gets cooler weather. *happy dance* Every time Halloween rolls around it starts the feeling where I just want to cuddle under a blanket with some tea and a book.

I used to read scary books and the one that stands out in my mind is In the Dark by Richard Laymond. I probably remember it because there was a bit of romance tossed in!

In the Dark by Richard Laymond
Nothing much happens to Jane Kerry, a young librarian. Then one day Jane finds an envelope containing a fifty-dollar bill and a note instructing her to "Look homeward, angel." Jane pulls a copy of the Thomas Wolfe novel of that title off the shelf and finds a second envelope. This one contains a hundred-dollar bill and another clue. Both are signed, "MOG (Master of Games)." But this is no ordinary game. As it goes on, it requires more and more of Jane's ingenuity, and pushes her into actions that she knows are crazy, immoral or criminal--and it becomes continually more dangerous. More than once, Jane must fight for her life, and she soon learns that MOG won't let her quit this game. She'll have to play to the bitter end.

Giveaway:

WoW [179] / Cover Reveal - Sorceresses Don’t Cry by Anya Breton

Title: Sorceresses Don’t Cry
Author: Anya Breton
Series: Only Sorceress #4
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: October 23rd 2015
Buy Link: Amazon

Self-proclaimed sorceress Kora wishes she could concentrate on making her new-age business a success. But between a colony-wide strike of public works spearheaded by the disgruntled Were community and dear ol’ Mum Hecate’s “favors,” Kora will be lucky to get to work on time let alone maintain an unblemished immortal soul. Mom’s latest task has Kora running afoul of the magical community’s most powerful figures on their home turf. This time cleaning up after a rogue witch lands Kora in the furious clutches of beautiful, high priest Desmond. If that weren’t bad enough, past actions come back to haunt Kora, leaving her with much to answer for, one Hades of a common cold, and no one left on her side.

Why I am waiting:
YAY! I <3 Anya Breton's books, and I adore this series. Her paranormal stuff always blows me away, so this will be a must buy. This series is about a sorceress, which is a character you don't see often and I can't wait to see what happens next.


Excerpt:
“Viho.” Desmond paused until the Healer’s attention switched away from the departing witches. “I would be in your debt if you would kindly drive Ms. Walsh’s car to Wipuk Waters.”
No way was I getting in a car with him again. “I can drive it myself, Marino.”
“Hush, Walsh,” he said even as he fetched the keys out of my purse.
I stared, flabbergasted that he felt comfortable rummaging around in my purse. Who did the man think he was?
Once Desmond transferred the rental car key into Viho’s care, he took my left elbow in hand, and then forced me to the door. The manhandling was oddly complemented by my purse hanging from his other arm. I’d save the fighting until we were out of earshot. Saving face with the coalition was more important than setting Desmond straight.
He guided me into the corridor toward the heavy front door, and then on to the BMW parked in the first spot. I let him open the passenger side door and even failed to complain when he switched his grip from my left to my right elbow so he could put me into the seat. But that was as far as it went.
I had plenty of time to grow increasingly pissed off while he walked around the car, stopped to give Viho further instructions, and then finally got in to turn on the engine.
“I’m so furious with you right now,” I said as soon as he’d shifted the car into reverse.
Desmond laughed. “That would be more believable if you hadn’t just saved my life.”
“I saved your life because I didn’t want to spend another two months trying to win over whoever takes your place.”
“How lucky for me,” he said, drawling in what sounded an awful lot like amusement.
The dick was funning me!
My jaw set with an audible click. “You trapped me into joining your coven, Marino. I’m not a witch. I should never have been forced into your coven.”
“You need me, Walsh,” he said in a disgustingly arrogant tone. “You said it yourself. You needed either Maximo or myself to support you so you could stay.” Desmond maneuvered the car out of the parking lot. “After everything that has happened, the only way we could let you stay was to go full out.”
My voice went sour with several sharp punctuations. “Even though I saved six dozen people from dying in New Jersey and another who knows how many in Cary’s place, I’ve got to bow to your stupid customs?”
He faced me as we halted at a stop sign. “I thought you would be happy you were no longer on the fringe.”
I jerked in his direction. “Bullshit, Marino. Bullshit. You didn’t do this for me. I’m not as stupid as I look—”
“You don’t look stupid.” He resumed his forward position. The car rolled into the intersection a second later.
“You made me join your faction so you’d have complete control over me, so you could interrogate me whenever you like without needing the coalition’s authorization, and so you’d be the only vote if it came down to me needing to be punished.”
“How is my vote being the only one a bad thing?”
“Because Viho would have voted unconditionally in my favor! While you—”
“While I am someone you can’t manipulate.”
I folded my arms in front of my chest in a show of petulance.
He glanced over at me. “You think the coalition doesn’t realize that, too? How do you think I convinced them I was the best choice?”
“Because you manipulated them.”
Frustration rose up in him—easily sensed with as extreme as it was. “I didn’t have to manipulate them. They knew I was correct.”
I let out a harsh laugh. “I bet Alina thinks differently now.”
He huffed a sigh in through his nose. But the reminder of Alina must have diverted Desmond’s thoughts because when he spoke next it was in a low voice on a new topic. “How many more secrets are going to be revealed?”
Rather than lie to him, I stared out the windshield.
“I don’t want to make you tell me.” He was almost believable. Almost. “But I am your priest now. I need to know what I’ve taken absolute responsibility for.”
“Maybe you should have found out before you did.” It was an uncooperative, nasty statement I shouldn’t have said. Too late to take it back now.
“Kora,” he said in warning. “I will interrogate you if I have to.”
My entire body went cold and stiff from the memory of being in that spellweaved chair in the pitch-black. The answer I gave him shook out of my mouth. “Then you can kiss my ever saving you again goodbye, Marino, because I’d rather let you die a horrible death than let you put me in that chair again.”
“I don’t believe that,” he said softly.
“Believe it.”
Desmond’s voice took on hint of confidence. “I heard you, you know. If you truly hated me as you say you do, you wouldn’t have been pleading with me not to die.”
Hera, help me. He heard me blubbering over his ailing body. How embarrassing.
“If you’d died,” I said, “then I couldn’t torment you for what you did to me in that chair.”
The dick laughed at me. “You torment me, Walsh, every day.” He cleared his throat, and then adopted that low voice again. “What other secrets will blindside me?”
Miffed he thought everything was so damn funny, I said, “If I told you, then there’d be no blindsiding fun, now would there?”
“Kora.”
Zeus, the man didn’t let up!
I released a martyred sigh. “Remember when I said revealing the answers to some questions could mean my death? I meant it. Okay? So apart from the fact I know a ridiculous number of foreign languages and have visited at least as many countries as I know languages, you know everything I can tell you.”
He went silent. I could almost see the furious workings of his mind.
What I didn’t see was what prompted him to ask his next question. “Did you eat dinner last night?”
“What?”
Desmond chuckled. “I’ll make steak.”
Good grief. He was going to cook for me.

WoW [178] - The Single Undead Moms Club

Title: The Single Undead Moms Club
Author: Molly Harper
Series: Half-Moon Hollow #4
Release Date: October 27th 2015

In the next book in Molly Harper’s Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Libby (a widow-turned-vampire) struggles with her transition, and finds out it sucks to be the only vampire member of the PTA…

Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn’t the best idea she’s ever had, but she was desperate—she’s not about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.

On top of post-turning transition issues, like being ignored at PTA meetings and other mothers rejecting her son’s invitations for sleepovers, Libby must deal with her father-in-law’s attempts to declare her an unfit mother, her growing feelings for Wade—a tattooed redneck single dad she met while hiding in a closet at Back to School Night—and the return of her sire, who hasn’t stopped thinking about brave, snarky Libby since he turned her.
Why I am waiting:
Pretty much any MHarper book is going to be a must read for me. I love the way the author blends in humor with the whodunit with some romance tossed in too.

White Trash Zombie Gone Wild - Diana Rowland
Angel crawford has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gear--that is, until a murder-by-decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour. As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life she's built, and she's determined not to rest until she finds out who's behind it.

Soon she's neck-deep in lies, redneck intrigue, zombie hunters, and rot-sniffing cadaver dogs. It's up to her to unravel the truth and snuff out the conspiracy before the existence of zombies makes headline news and she's outed as a monster.

But Angel hasn't quite escaped the pill-popping ghosts of her past--not with an illicit zombie pharmaceutical at her fingertips. Good thing she's absolutely sure she can handle the drug's unpredictable side effects and still take down the bad guys...or maybe she's only one bad choice away from being dead meat--for real this time.

Angel knows a thing or two about kicking ass, but now the ass she needs to kick might be her own.
