I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend! I'm hoping to get in a bit of reading in addition to some writing.
If you haven't read Eve of Darkness yet, Book One of S.J. Day's Marked series, do pick it up. It's excellent. Eve is a fabulous heroine and Cain (yes of Cain and Able fame) is a wonderful bad boy hero. There's plenty of action, plenty of plot, and plenty of hot steamy sex. Although I will warn you - this is a series. When you get to the end of book one, if you're like me you'll let out a scream. Thankfully book 2 will be out soon and I'm a series junkie.
That brings me to my next recommendation. I haven't finished this yet, but it's off to a good start and I've decided to select it for my June Bookclub pick (I pick one book each month). Burning Aliveby Shannon K. Butcher. There's going to be some additional info on this one - which is book 1 in The Sentinel Wars series - in my June newsletter. I'll also be giving away a signed copy. If you aren't receiving my newsletter, you can sign up via the home page of my website: samanthasommersby [dot] com
Lastly, Michelle Pillow let me know of a new release. This one just came out today. I kept trying to include an excerpt, but the words kept melting and sliding right off of my monitor!
Divinity Warriors 2: Fighting Lady Jayne
By Michelle M. Pillow
Jayne Hart has earned her independence by becoming Divinity Corporation's inter-dimensional boxing champion. Life is great, until a dirty fighter knocks her unconscious. Now, abandoned by the corporation in a parallel world, Jayne will use every weapon she has to be free once more. Even if it means running from her sexy new "husband" and spending the rest of her life in a primitive forest.
Ronen of Firewall longs for a woman to warm his bed and his home, but he had no intention of choosing a bride. In an unprecedented move, one chooses him. Never in the history of the breeding ceremony has a woman dared to lay claim. How can he resist the alluring Lady Jayne? She's confident and sure in her decision to be with him—until their wedding night when she's nowhere to be found. But, Ronen is not one to shy from a battle. He will find Jayne and, when he does, he has one particular "weapon" in mind for taming his seductive, wayward wife.
So what are you reading?
