Sunday Snippets: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Sunday Snippets: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger  About the Book Immortal Hunter Author:  Kait Ballenger Publisher:   Harlequin Released:  April 1, 2014 Snippet WITHIN FIFTEEN MINUTES David reached the address.  Shutting off the ignition and setting the kickstand, he parked his bike on the street several houses away.  He quickly jogged toward the house, ignoring the shooting pain coursing through his leg. As he crept up the porch steps, the hairs on his arms and the back of his neck stood on end.  His senses heightened, he listened for the sound of screams or yelling from behind the door.  Nothing.  He breathed deep, preparing himself, then froze.  The smell of rotten eggs hit his nose, and then he...

Sunday Snippet: Lord of the Hunt by Shona Husk

Sunday Snippet: Lord of the Hunt by Shona Husk  About the Book Lord of the Hunt Author:  Shona Husk Publisher:   Sourcebooks Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet What was taking so long? Had the King coaxed her into a dance?  Was she now gladly in his arms thinking of ways to get her father’s pardon while the Queen watched? He curled his fingers as if remembering the warmth of her hand against his, the light in her eyes as she’d danced – she needed to learn how to hide what she was feeling better.  Too many people would see too much. The white dog came strolling cross the grass a moment before Verden saw Taryn emerging out of...

Slatton Publisher:   Telemachus Press Released:  July 12, 2011 REVIEW HERE Snippet “Let’s go back,” I suggested, before Arthur could kiss me.  He kissed me anyway. “Have you ever climbed a rock wall?” “No, and I don’t want to.” “Come on, I’ll show you how.  It’s fun.” “Fun?!” “Yes, fun.  It refers to enjoyable experiences that human beings are hardwired to have.  And not just in bed.” “That’s not fun, that’s duty.  I made a deal and I’m keeping my end of it,” I muttered.  Arthur laughed heartily. “That’s what you’re telling yourself, Emma?” “That’s the truth.” “Liar.  Come on.  We’re safe here. ...

Sunday Snippet: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff

Sunday Snippet: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff  About the Book Dark Craving  Author:  Veronica Wolff Publisher:   Self-published Released:  November 17, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I stalk from the bushes.  A shadow moves on the path.  I freeze.  I’d know the curve of those shoulders anywhere. “Bloody hell.”  I’ve only murmured under my breath, but I’m heard. Annelise stops, turns, steps closer. I tear into her the moment she’s within earshot and hiss into the darkness.  “What are you doing here?” Even in the shadows, I sense her recoil.  “Hi to you, too, Ronan.” I take my urumi into my left hand and grab her arm with my right, tugging her back onto the path. “How’d you get...

Sunday Snippet: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

Sunday Snippet: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson  About the Book A Cursed Moon  Author:  Cecy Robson Publisher:   Signet Released:  December 3, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I jumped out and ambled toward the blue Colonial.  Mrs. Mancuso, the girls’ elderly neighbor, was sweeping her front steps by the light of her lawn jockey’s lantern, a freak-ass little statue with bright red pants and a lazy eye.  Despite the late hour she brushed her little broom back and forth with quick precise motions, even through any sap could have eaten off of the wooden steps as they were.  She was probably bored, and lonely.  The Wird sisters seemed to be her only form of entertainment. She buttoned the top...

Review: Scarlet Devices by Delphine Dryden

Review: Scarlet Devices by Delphine Dryden Scarlet Devices Author: Delphine Dryden  Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: After reading Gossamer Wing, I was curious about who the next story would focus on.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that Scarlet Devices is the journey of Matthew and Eliza.  After the espionage and intrigue of Gossamer Wing, I wasn’t sure what to expect with Matthew and Eliza, but I thoroughly enjoyed this second novel in the Steam and Seduction series. Please note: this world is an alternate history; most notably this steam punk is based in a world where the revolutionary war never occurred.  If you are interested in reading this fascinating series, please...
