Bad Blood - Jennifer Lynn Barnes
When Cassie Hobbes joined the FBI's Naturals program, she had one goal: uncover the truth about her mother's murder. But now, everything Cassie thought she knew about what happened that night has been called into question. Her mother is alive, and the people holding her captive are more powerful—and dangerous—than anything the Naturals have faced so far.

As Cassie and the team work to uncover the secrets of a group that has been killing in secret for generations, they find themselves racing a ticking clock.

New victims. New betrayals. New secrets.

When the bodies begin piling up, it soon becomes apparent that this time, the Naturals aren't just hunting serial killers.

WoW [232] - Archangel's Heart by Nalini Singh

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Archangel's Heart
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #9
Release Date: November 1st, 2016

One of the most vicious archangels in the world has disappeared. No one knows if Lijuan is dead or has chosen to Sleep the long sleep of an immortal. But with her lands falling into chaos under a rising tide of vampiric bloodlust, a mysterious and ancient order of angels known as the Luminata calls the entire Cadre together to discuss the fate of her territory.

Accompanying her archangelic lover Raphael to the Luminata compound, guild hunter-turned-angel Elena senses that all is not as it seems. Secrets echo from within the stone walls of the compound, and the deeper Elena goes, the uglier the darkness. But neither Raphael nor Elena is ready for the brutal truths hidden within—truths that will change everything Elena thinks she knows about who she is…

Nothing will ever be the same again.

Why I am waiting:
I'm so behind on this series, but I just keep seeing good things about these. I enjoyed the books I have read so can't wait to catch up. I think a binge listen/read is in order. Let me know if you're caught up on these and if you enjoyed them!

Submission is Not Enough - Lexi Blake
A fallen hero reborn

Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him.

A love worth fighting for

Erin Argent thought she’d lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture and conditioning at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald have done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her or the life they shared. Breaking through to him, and helping him rediscover all he lost, will be the toughest mission she’s ever faced. Luckily for Theo, Erin loves a good fight.

Their reunion under siege

Unfortunately, Hope is far from done with Theo Taggart. Obsession with her prize experiment, she will do anything to get him back. If the only way to finally break him of his past life is to kill Erin and his son, then she’s only too happy to oblige…

WoW [231] - Ostrich and the 'Roo by Eve Langlais

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Ostrich and the 'Roo
Author: Eve Langlais
Series: Furry United Coalition Book 6
Release Date: December 14th, 2016

FUC is going down under, so prepare for a wild ride with a ‘roo and the chick he rescues.

Ranger and crypto containment specialist Jaxon Jones has seen some interesting things, but a purported giant ostrich terrorizing suburbia is new, even for him. Especially when he finds the so-called menace, and she’s fast asleep, head buried in a bush. But since Jax was hired to bring the beautiful Mari home, he’ll endure her sass. Especially since it’s what draws him to her.

Newly rescued from a mad scientist’s lab, Mari isn’t the same. Sure she still suffers the embarrassment of dropping an egg every time she’s taken by surprise, but what really scares her is when her darkness takes over and she blacks out. Now, the gorgeous and frustrating Jax keeps stuffing her in cages and insists that he was hired by her dead father to bring her back to a place she’s never been. And he refuses to feed her meat. Mari doesn’t know what to do with the sexy kangaroo. Though she knows what she’d like to do with him…

Someone wants the darkness that prowls inside Mari. Badly. But Mari’s more worried about what she could do to Jax and their allies if she can’t control herself. Will this unlikely pair have their g’day, or will their foes and Mari’s inner demons prove too much? 

Why I am waiting:
I know some of yall have been loving this series and I always keep my eye on it. Still haven't read an Eve Langlais book but I'll be correcting that this year. She comes up with the most unique shifters haha. I'm still waiting to see a zebra shifter, maybe one day!

What book are you waiting on this week?

WoW [230] - Owl and the Electric Samurai by Kristi Charish

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Owl and the Electric Samurai
Author: Kristi Charish
Series: The Adventures of Owl #3
Release Date: October 31st, 2016 Looks like this got pushed back or inaccurate info was loaded, new release date is May 8th, 2017

The third exciting novel starring the unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world. From the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish (Owl and the Japanese Circus) and for fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

The International Archaeology Association (IAA) is responsible for keeping all things supernatural under wraps. They’re also responsible for ruining the promising archaeology career of Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl.

Needless to say, Owl’s still a little sore about that.

Just to keep Owl’s life lively, the IAA has opened a bounty on the two designers of World Quest, the online RPG that is much, much more than it seems. Owl needs to locate the notorious gaming duo before the other mercenaries do. But finding the gamers won’t be easy since every clue points to them hiding out in the legendary lost city of Shangri-La. Not to mention that the last time Owl and the game designers spoke, their conversation didn’t exactly end on the best note…

Meanwhile, undercurrents of supernatural politics are running amok in Tokyo, dragging Owl and her friends into a deadly game of wits with an opponent who calls himself the Electric Samurai. The cost of losing? All-out civil war between two powerful supernatural factions.

All in all, just another great day on the job.

Why I am waiting:
I've really been enjoying this series so this will be a must read for me! Owl is pretty awesome and I can't wait to see what shenanigans she gets into this time.

Midnight Untamed - Lara Adrian
The mission was supposed to be simple. Infiltrate an enemy's stronghold outside Rome and eliminate its leader. For a Breed warrior as lethal as Ettore Selvaggio, AKA "Savage", stealth assassinations are only one of his many cold-hearted specialties. But the last thing Savage expects to find behind enemy lines—in his target's bed—is a woman he once adored.

It's been years since Savage last saw beautiful Arabella Genova. Years he's strived to banish to his past, along with the fierce desire he once felt toward Bella . . . and the irresistible calling of her blood that stirs in him even now, despite the fact that she belongs to another male.

But when fate throws Savage and Bella together again in a race for their lives, will his long-lost love prove to be the one woman he can't live without, or the perfect weapon to destroy him?
