What's Hot This Week: June 11th - 17th

Hello all my lovelies! It’s a slow week for new releases, so what I’ll do is give you a list of a few of my favourite novels I’ve read so far this year and links to the review. 

Happy Reading!!

Release Date: June 12th 2012
Title: The Taken
Series: Celestial Blues #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Author: Vicki Pettersson

He’s a fallen angel. She’s a rockabilly reporter. Together they must solve a deadly string of murders plaguing the mortal and the immortal worlds.

Griffin Shaw used to be a PI, but that was over fifty years ago when gumshoes hoofed the streets . . . and he was still alive. Now he’s a Centurion, an angel who assists other murdered souls through their journey to the afterlife. But while Shaw might be an angel … he’s no saint. Haunted by the mysterious events surrounding his own death, he seizes a chance to wreak some vengeance when he witnesses a deadly attack on journalist Katherine “Kit” Craig.

Joining forces, the unlikely avengers take to the streets, hunting a killer whose trail of bodies stretches across Las Vegas and into an immortal netherworld. It is a dangerous trek that lead them into the darkest corners of Sin City and into the heart of an evil conspiracy extending beyond the lights of the Strip that could destory them both.

But destruction isn’t the only threat Griffin faces. The closer he gets to Kit, the more he finds himself bewitched by her mortal charms. Can he resist falling under her spell? And does he want to?

So here are a few of my favourites so far this year:

Title: Blood Lust Rising
Series: The Vampire Queen Trilogy, #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Erotica
Author: Fayth Devlin

I have to say this novel just flat out did it for me!  From the very start, the chemistry between Ella and Micah jumps off the page.  There is an intensity and completely impassioned feel to this novel.  A great love story and a solid engaging plot, this is a novel that any Paranormal Romance fan will not want to miss out on.

Title: Blood and Bullets
Series: Deacon Chalk series, #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Author: James R Tuck

My inner goddess now calls out for Deacon Chalk!  This fearless and brave Bad Boy Hero that protects humanity is now one of my favorites.  Confidence and power radiates from his very essence.  He’s scary and intimidating and the kind of man who will make you want to run and hide at first; but if you look a little closer, he’ll stir something deep inside that will no longer let you look away.  He’s a strong, hot, alpha male with a huge heart and not afraid to show it.

Title: Blood Possession
Series: Blood Curse series, #3
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance
Author: Tessa Dawn

I cannot recommend this novel enough. Tessa Dawn’s Blood Possession is a 6 star read. Gods, it’s even a 10 star read!! The backstory on the origins of Vampyrs is original and well thought out, the characters are beyond compelling and the overall pace and tone is perfect, and the way the events unfold is perfection.  There is no doubt in my mind that you will find this novel unforgettable and you will find a connection with at least one character. Marquis is mine though…just saying!

Title: Lothaire
Series: Immortal After Dark, #12
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Author: Kresley Cole

I read this one and immediately started reading it again.  I even delayed writing this review not wanting to remove myself from the world that is Immortals After Dark.  As with all of KC’s other novels in this series, the characters are compelling and wonderfully developed.  Lothaire is the epitome of bad boy and stays true to his character and Ellie is one of the strongest heroines I’ve encountered and able to go toe to toe with Lothaire.  The story is passionate and sexy with some of the hottest and provocative sex in the series so far.  The epilogue will leave you stunned and feel like you were hit with a thunderbolt! 

This is my favorite novel of the series thus far although each in Immortals After Dark is consistently brilliant.  Its one of those novels that you read like a speed demon, your heart racing with anticipation but then when its almost over, you slow down fearing it will end too soon.

Title:The Society of Sinners
Series: Sinners series, #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Author: Charity Parkerson

Incredible! This novel is like waking up Christmas morning to find that Santa brought you every single thing you wanted on your wish list!  This one is a compilation of five different short stories making it refreshingly unique in this genre.  Each one tells the story of a specific character; however, they are all interlaced by bringing characters in and out from the other stories as needed, and by keeping the overall plot the same. 

There is an overall intensity and impassioned feel to this novel.  Each short story is a heartfelt paranormal love story with lots of conflict and a healthy dose of sensuality that Charity Parkerson is famous for in her erotica novels.

Title: Deliverance
Series: The Mortal Path, #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Author: Dakota Banks

This one is another great adventure in Maliha’s quest for redemption.  In my opinion, Ms. Banks has created a second to none but far from perfect heroine in Maliha and she really makes us care about her and her friends.  This novel and the series are skillfully woven with mythology, intriguing plots and skillful characterization. This series is now one of my favorites and I found Deliverance to be the best novel in the series so far.  I’m anxiously waiting and desperate for the next one to come out! 

So, what are you looking forward to reading this week?
