5 for Friday - October 5

Happy Friday everyone! And a happy birthday shout-out to Jennifer at the Book Nympho. You're almost as old as I am now, chica!

I survived the mini-vacation to Atlanta and I even got to read a little bit in the car. But this weekend, I have big plans to sit down and really catch up on the TBR.  No. Really. Please?

5. I have never read a Jaci Burton book.  You guys know I'm not big on contemporary romance. But her covers are to-freaking-die-for.  Every cover in the Play-by-Play series is drool worthy and the new one is no exception.

It's because of this series I know who Jed Hill is.  (*sigh*) Thank you Jaci Burton (or the art department for your publisher.) You make my days a little brighter.  One Sweet Ride is out in June 2013.

4.  Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series may be over, but it's not over-over.  In her newsletter this week, Kelley announced a new Jaime novella. Amityville Horrible will release through Subterranean Press later this year.  The Clay & Elena novella, Forbidden, releases in December.

In other Otherworld news (*giggle*) --remember that Bitten tv show I told you about earlier?

I wondered if the upcoming Canadian TV project would/ could make its way across the border to the US. Well, Kelley says the producers are working with a company to seek international distribution. Hooray!!

3. I love Kristen Callihan's Darkest London books.  Love.  This week she announced tidbits on book 4 in the series.  It's called Shadowdance. She said on her Facebook page that it will feature shifter Jack Talent and Ghost in the Machine Mary Chase. I saw this and was ready to pee my pants.  I am still anxiously awaiting Winterblaze, people.

I need this book now. Someone tell the calendar to jump ahead to February 13th.

2. Another cover reveal for you... this one for book three in Amanda Bonilla's Shaede Assassin series.

Nothing comes easy for Darian. Her heightened powers make her indispensable to the Shaede Nation, but dangerous missions have driven her lover, Tyler, to his breaking point. Darian must salvage their bond, but a new assignment to protect Anya—a fellow Shaede and the first of their kind to become pregnant in centuries—stands in their way.

It doesn’t help that the two Shaedes are longtime rivals and share nothing besides mutual hatred. But when it becomes clear that someone—or something—is bent on destroying the expectant mother and her unborn child, Darian must put her feelings aside and track down Anya’s would-be assassin.

As she probes into Anya’s past, Darian digs up long-buried secrets—and a connection between Tyler and the mission that could destroy everything between them.

It's gorgeous.  But Amanda Bonilla already knows there's gonna be trouble if she breaks up Darian and Tyler.  Big, big trouble.

Crave the Darkness, which I will henceforth refer to as The Book Where Tyler and Darian Reconcile, will be out March 5th. (Don't correct me if you know something I don't. Let me keep my dreams.)

1. And finally... Christine Feehan's Carpathian series is one of my great guilty pleasures. I can do no other but to keep reading them.  (Feehan fans will get that joke.)  Well, the book trailer came out for her new installment, Dark Storm.

This book released on Tuesday.  I must go buy.  (Anyone read it yet?)

That's it for now. Hope you guys are enjoying the Favorites From My Favorites feature!

I've been eying Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series on audio from my library. I think I will finally start it after the 1st of the year. I kind of like coming to series late, that way I don't have to wait for new releases. LOL TV show...if it happens and it's good SyFy channel might pick it up like they did Lost Girl.

I'm drawing a blank on Jack Talent and Ghost in the Machine Mary Chase. Help.

I have my fingers crossed that I'll win manda Bonilla's Shaede Assassin series through a giveaway I entered. If not I know what I'll use my B&N gift card for...

And yes Jaci Burton book covers are hot. I have books 1 & 2 maybe even 3 on my Nook. Yet another series I've not started yet. (sigh)

That's Paul Marron. I didn't even recognize him.

I love coming to a series late too! That way you can glut yourself on them all back-to-back. I read the Otherworld books the same way 2 or 3 years ago!

I will cross my fingers for you on the Bonilla giveaway. I'm excited that you'll be reading these! She's got a big giveaway going on at Heroes & Heartbreakers too.

I'll email you on Darkest London!

I'm not sure what I think about this latest Christine Feehan book. The book blurb didn't sound so hot to me, and now I don't know if the books will be too ultraviolent or not. I think I'll wait for you to read it first and give us all the low-down!

Now I HAVE to read it. For the team!

Da-namn, you are right about that Jaci Burton cover. Smokin! I haven't read much straight romance in a while, but I may have to give it a read. :)
