Sunday Snippet – Daylighters

Sunday Snippet – Daylighters  About the Book Daylighters Author:  Rachel Caine Publisher:   NAL Released:  November 5, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “It’s clear you don’t understand the slightest thing about what is happening in Morganville,” Amelie said.  “So I will forgive you for not comprehending how much danger you put Michael in by separating him from my protection.”  She nodded slightly, and on the other side of the atrium, Oliver stepped up.  He was holding Michael by the arm.  Michael broke free, and for just a heartbeat Claire saw him clearly in the dim light:  a shock of golden hair wild around his face, clear blue eyes fixed on Eve.  Of all of them, he looked the...

Sunday Snippet – Hero for Hire

Sunday Snippet – Hero for Hire  About the Book Hero for Hire Author:  Merissa McCain and Margaret Madigan Publisher:   Lyrical Press Released:  October 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet A tall man entered through the door behind the window.  He was well built, and his hair was backlit to a golden color by the evening sunlight.  He moved with a careless male swagger, confidently in charge.  I unfolded myself from the upholstered bench and strode to the glass, trying to ignore the multitude of aches moving brought on.  As stiff and sore as I felt today, his easy movement annoyed me.  I swallowed it down, reminding myself I needed these people, but they obviously didn’t need me. When he stepped up...

Sunday Snippet – Archangel’s Legion

Sunday Snippet – Archangel’s Legion  About the Book Archangel’s Legion Author:  Nalini Singh Publisher:   Jove Released:  October 29, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet Still not sure she was happy about the whole river-of-blood/strange-influx-of power situation, she landed on a rooftop not far from the river’s edge just as the snow stopped falling, the sun’s rays refracted off a city covered in a fine, feather light blanket of white.  The rooftop had a direct line of sight to the river, and she could see swarms of people on the piers, gesticulating wildly as they gathered around camera phones that had no doubt caught the weirdness. Blue feathers with glittering silver filaments filled her vision a second later, followed by the...

Sunday Snippet – Sins of the Lost

Sunday Snippet – Sins of the Lost  About the Book Sins of the Lost Author:  Linda Poitevin Publisher:   Intermix Released:  October 15, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet She found Michael seated by the window in the back of the crowded café.  Sliding into the chair opposite, she shook her head at the waitress’s offer of a menu and asked for coffee.  Michael declined to order anything.  With a huff of displeasure, the harried-looking woman stomped off to serve other, presumably higher-paying clients.  Michael cleared his throat. “You look well.” Alex raised a brow.  Small talk?  From an angel?  She reached past him for the sugar dispenser, taking in the stiff lines of his shoulders, his fists resting on the chipped tabletop....

Sunday Snippet – Targeted

Sunday Snippet – Targeted  About the Book Targeted Author:  Katie Reus Publisher:   Signet Released:  October 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “What is this place?” Sophie finally said as she slowly pulled out the pepper spray from her pocket.  He’d parked in between two unused warehouses he’d scouted out earlier.  Bayside Marketplace wasn’t that far from where they were – hell, he could actually see Port Boulevard Bridge jutting over Biscayne Bay – but for how quiet and desolate the area seemed, they might as well be a thousand miles away.  He glanced at her hand and shook his head. “You can keep that if it makes you feel better, but you don’t need it against me. ...

Sunday Snippet – Long Shot

Sunday Snippet – Long Shot        About the Book Long Shot Author:  Hanna Martine Publisher:   Berkley Released:  October, 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “Leith MacDougall, what a surprise!”  Evidently Sue McCurdy did know how to smile, and it was when the town’s celebrity was in touching distance.  Today’s Syracuse T-shirt was navy blue, and the age-inappropriate hairstyle was pigtails sticking out from just behind her ears.  The mayor stood in the open door of Town Hall, beaming right over Jen’s head at the big man at her back.  “To what do I owe this pleasure?”  Leith moved to Jen’s side, crowding her on the small front stoop, their arms touching briefly.  “Just dropping off...

Sunday Snippet – The Lotus Palace

Sunday Snippet – The Lotus Palace    About the Book The Lotus Palace Author:  Jeannie Lin Publisher:   Harlequin Released:   August 23, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet … Yue-ying went downstairs to fetch a plate of red bean cakes from the kitchen as it seemed the men would stay awhile.  When she returned, the old historian had turned the conversation back to the imperial court. “This is an opportunity to advise the Emperor that he must change course.  Heaven has given us a sign.  Earthquakes and floods have ben known to topple dynasties,” the historian pointed out sagely. Bai Huang was already shaking his head.  “A sign of what?  It sounds more like superstitious doomsaying,” he said with a...

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine Daylighters Author: Rachel Caine Reviewer: Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Wow…I am speechless over the final book in the Morganville Vampires series.  I started this series from reading a novella (how Eve came to be a member of the Glass House) and enjoyed the novella so much, I started the series with the first book.  Daylighters ties this series up with a big red bow it seems.  Although there is the option, if Ms. Caine decides, for us to be able to return to Morganville.  However, the story of Claire and her Glass House friends has come full circle, and I’m happy to say, the...

Sunday Snippet – Under a Spell

Sunday Snippet – Under a Spell    About the Book Under a Spell Author:  Hannah Jayne  Publisher:   Kensington Released:  August 6, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet I groaned and grabbed my door, flinging it open.  “Nina, what the hell is go–” “Shhhh!”  I was met by a chorus of angry hisses and then the business end of a megaphone as Nina yelled, “Cut!” directly into my face.  She pinched her icy, bony fingers around my elbow and yanked me into the kitchen, which had miraculously gone from cozy mess to break room chic: our mismatched collection of hand-me-down mugs with unappetizing statements — Carrie for Prom Queen, The Problem is Gonorrhea— had been replaced by an orderly heap of...

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond    About the Book Blood Bond Author:  Jeanne C. Stein Publisher:   ACE Released:  August 27, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet Next morning, Frey and I are the last to the breakfast table. I’m glad no one asks why.  It would be embarrassing.  Even an adult daughter doesn’t want to acknowledge that she’s late coming down because she and her fiancé were having sex.  Lots of sex.  Great sex.  Sex so good I didn’t want stop.  When I feel color start up the back of my neck, I decide what I’d better do is stop thinking about it. I slink into a chair at the table and reach for the coffeepot.  “Where are the...
