October Books I Can't Wait For!

Kev and Win totally stole the show in Mine till Midnight. Need I say more?

Here is a summary:
Win has been an invalid ever since she suffered a near-fatal case of scarlet fever. Merripen is a Romany Gypsy who was taken in by the Hathaway family when he was a boy. He has always kept his fierce passion for Win a secret, believing a romantic relationship would never be possible.
But Win goes to an exclusive clinic, far away from Merripen and the rest of her family, and makes a remarkable recovery. And when she returns two years later, a changed woman, the explosive passion between these long-denied lovers threatens their family, their future, and even their lives . . .

I have really enjoyed McKenna's books in the past. She is a guilty pleasure read for me. Ulitmate Weapon is Tamara's story. I wonder how Mckenna is going to pull this off, because Tamara is unlike any of her previous heroines. It should be interesting.

Here is the summary:
Tamara’s a bad girl with a dangerous difference. Enter a terrifying, sexually charged world of thrilling suspense where love is the riskiest game of all . . .


Covert operations are what Val Janos is all about. The man is mysterious and sinister, and lethally hot. Only Tamara can understand the strange intensity that drives him to win at all costs—and only she can match it.

Val has one weak spot : Imre, the frail old man who befriended him when he was a scared, hungry kid abandoned on the streets of Budapest. But Daddy Novak knows about Imre, and Imre’s head is on the block if Val doesn’t deliver Tam up to Novak’s tender mercies . . .

A white-hot passion explodes when Tam and Val get too close. They both have too much to be afraid of, too much to hide. And now, for the first time, too much to lose . . .

The Chosen Sin is the first book in a new vampire series by Anya Bast. I have read Anya Bast's Witch series and have really enjoyed them. I figured I may as well give her new series a try too. This book releases October 7th.

Here is the summary:
In this sensuous and lust-filled otherworld, the Chosen are vampires fighting for their very existence.

It is Daria’s destiny to become one of them…

Daria Morris is a special forces agent with one obsession: to wreak vengeance on the brutal vampire who nearly destroyed her. Now she’s finally about to get her chance, on one condition. She must become something she detests: a vampire.

Her fate rests upon one man’s lethal bite. His name is Alejandro Martinez, and he can help her infiltrate a highly guarded group of the Chosen. But Alejandro is also a distraction for Daria. Because thirteen years ago, they shared a scorching night of passion neither has forgotten.

Now, while Daria struggles against her newfound bloodlust, the two must slip into the shadows to bring a monster to justice—even as their desire threatens to consume them. But under the cover of night, they’ll discover that it’s the darkness within that may stand in the way of their hunger for retribution…

I have read the first two books in this romantic suspense series. I thought the first one No Regrets was fantastic and the second one No Control was average. I am anxious to see how No Escape rates.

Here is the summary:
Teacher Isabelle Carson is grief-stricken, angry, and scared. Three of her childhood friends have died. The police say they’re suicides, but Isabelle knows they would never, ever take their own lives. Her past binds her to every victim, and she knows it’s only a matter of time before the killer comes after her. Only one man can help her now, the only man she’s ever trusted, the man who saved her so long ago . . .

No Place to Hide

For Grant Kent, Delta Force vet, just being near Isabelle brings back old memories and desires, and stirs longings he’d rather deny. Yet he can’t deny the real terror in her eyes, or resist the thought of holding her again. But even as their friendship begins to blossom into a passionate affair, a killer continues his deadly rampage, and plots his next move, the “suicide” of Isabelle Carson.

I'm so with you on the Kleypas, McKenna and the Butcher. The Bast paranormal I could do without. I like her riting, but the paranormal is not my cuppa so much....

The other book I would add to that list is Mr Cavendish I Presume by Julia Quinn, and then a couple of historical fiction books - A Time for Singing by Elizabeth Chadwick and Devil's Brood by Sharon Kay Penman.

Lori, Three out of four ain't bad! So you don't like paranormals? Interesting... Is that just because there are so many and the market is flooded or you just don't like them in general?

Ames, It seems we have very similar tastes! Did you have any others to add?

Marg, I didn't add Mr. Cavendish because I haven't yet read The Lost Duke. I know, I know... I am working on it :) The other books I haven't heard of... hmmm

Kristie, I read your review today and I want it so badly!!!!

Nath, I just want to give you a heads up that in the Romantic Times magazine, they had The Chosen Sin classified as an erotic book. I wasn't sure if that would bother you or not. I have read her Witch series and there wasn't anything overly explicit, but I don't know how this new series will be.
