What's Hot This Week: April 29th - May 6th

Hello all my lovelies!  Here’s a few new releases for the week that caught my eye.  What new ones are you looking forward to?  Happy Reading!

Date: April 29th 2012
Title: Revelation Was Wrong
Genre: Fantasy
Author: Mark Rice

When a drunken prophet in Scotland's roughest town predicts a coming Apocalypse, no one takes much notice. After all, not one of the prophet's previous prognostications has come true. But five days later, events appear to be unfolding exactly as prophesied. A certain tonic wine, which is implicated in the majority of violent crimes committed in Scotland, plays a pivotal role in proceedings, as do two otherworldly visitors.

This short story is both a humorous piece of fiction and a social commentary on contemporary culture in the west of Scotland. Like the finest Scottish whiskies, it comes with a kick.

Genre: Erotica

Description: Jane was Robert's favorite and he would give her anything she wanted...

  “I’ve never done this before,” Jane admitted quietly. “I might do all the wrong things.”
  “You know how to pleasure yourself. You’ll know how to please me.”
  Jane nodded. She felt a nervous flutter in her belly, and her brain was stuck in overload, but her body screamed for release. Her pussy pulsed, begging for Noel’s tongue, and her palms itched to brush over Noel’s skin.

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong.

One thousand years to the day he was damned, Loki allows him a woman as reward for his good service and repentance of his crimes. Once Broder sees Jessamine Hamilton, he is overcome with need. But Jessa is no ordinary woman, and the truth of who—and what—she is could have dangerous consequences.

Series: The Ultimate Power #2
Genre: Paranormal Romance

My 5 star review of the first in the series Tegan's Blood

It’s been two years, but Tegan struggles on with the new lonely life she has built for herself. She might crave human companionship, but at least she’s still alive.

Series: Underworld Detection Agency #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Author: Hannah Jayne

She’s the new head of the Underworld Detection Agency’s strangest division. What a nightmare…

Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It’s also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone’s nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery — and Will’s unexpected vulnerability — in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike…

Author: Joey W Hill

Experience Joey W. Hill’s scintillating blend of modern-day witchcraft, ancient evil, and the magical tricks men and women play in the name of love…

All witch and part succubus, savvy businesswoman Raina has converted a Southern plantation house into an extremely profitable old-fashioned bordello. Because of her abilities as a witch, the demons under Raina’s protection can feed off the sexual energy of their clients without killing them—definitely a good thing for repeat business.

But when a rogue incubus shows up on Raina’s doorstep begging for asylum, the witch’s well-run business is put in jeopardy. The incubus has stolen an object of great power from Lucifer, and Underworld Dark Guardian Mikhael will do anything to get it back—even if it means incinerating the incubus on Raina’s porch to get the answers he seeks.

Not to be trifled with, Raina enters a dangerous match of wits with Mikhael to achieve their mutual goals—only to discover that the reluctant attraction between them is the most hazardous game of all.
