book news

Title:  Grave War
Author:  Kalayna Price
Series:  Alex Kraft #7
Published:  November 24, 2020
Description:  Grave witch Alex Craft is getting pulled back into deadly fae politics in the thrilling new novel in the USA Today bestselling series.

Grave witch Alex Craft has forged an uneasy truce with the world of Faerie, but she’s still been trying to maintain at least some semblance of a normal life in the human world. So it’s safe to say that stepping up as the lead investigator for the Fae Investigation Bureau was not a career path she ever anticipated taking.

When an explosion at the Eternal Bloom threatens to upend the fae who make their home in our world, Alex finds herself in charge of the most far reaching investigation she’s ever tackled. And it’s only her first week on the job. With the threats mounting and cut off from half her allies, Alex can’t wait on the sidelines and hope the fae’s conflicts stay contained within their borders.

Publisher’s Description: Welcome to The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. I’m Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd in charge. I run my business by one simple rule: Everyone needs a good book and a stiff drink, be they vampire, wicche, demon, or fae. No wolves, though. Ever. I have my reasons.

I serve the supernatural community of San Francisco. We’ve been having some problems lately. Okay, I’m the one with the problems. The broken body of a female werewolf washed up on my doorstep. What makes sweat pool at the base of my spine, though, is realizing the scars she bears are identical to the ones I conceal. After hiding for years, I’ve been found.

A protection I’ve been relying on is gone. While my wolf traits are strengthening steadily, the loss also left my mind vulnerable to attack. Someone is ensnaring me in horrifying visions intended to kill. Clive, the sexy vampire Master of the City, has figured out how to pull me out, designating himself by personal bodyguard. He’s grumpy about it, but that kiss is telling a different story. A change is taking place. It has to. The bookish bartender must become the fledgling badass.

I’m a survivor. I’ll fight fang and claw to protect myself and the ones I love. And let’s face it, they have it coming.

 

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

I wasn’t sure, at first, about this book.  The title had me wondering.  That didn’t stop me though, as I’ve been in many supernatural bars in my lifetime (through books), and I knew this would have to be interesting.

Interesting it was.  And violent.  Sam is knocked down, knocked around, and literally beaten not just once, but several times through this story.  All because someone wants to kill her.  She has no idea who she pissed off or why they could possibly be pissed off as she has kept her head down and out of sight for most of her life.  She also doesn’t know why the Master Vampire of the city stops in once a month for a drink at her bar.

The story is a tale of survival.  Getting beaten down and abandoned but still pulling herself up to do what she has to.  There is snark woven in and through this book as Sam has a sassy personality.  I had a tough time following along once or twice throughout the book, but Sam gets these horrible visions.  She may think it’s really happening, but it’s only happening in her mind.  I want to tell you that only because I got confused.

Clive Fitzwilliam.  Old vampire.  Master of the city.  Head of the Nocturne for San Francisco.  Rich and powerful and a force to be reckoned with.  Yep, he falls for the 24 year old werewolf.

Their combination has been done in other books, but I still like it.  Mostly, their relationship isn’t the forefront of the book.  It’s the mystery of who wants Sam wiped off the face of the Earth.  Whether it be bravery or stupidity, Sam takes things into her own hands and, again, does what she has to do to survive.

I like rooting for the underdog and Sam really got the party started.  I liked this book and I can hardly wait for the next book to be released.

I give it 4 stars.

book news

Title:  Return to Virgin River
Author: Robin Carr
Series:  Virgin River #19
Release date:  October 13, 2020
Description: Kaylee Sloan’s home in Southern California is full of wonderful memories of the woman who raised her. But the memories are prolonging her grief over her mother’s recent death. A successful author, Kaylee hoped she could pour herself into her work. Instead she has terrible writer’s block and a looming deadline.

Determined to escape distractions and avoid the holiday season, Kaylee borrows a cabin in Virgin River. She knows the isolation will help her writing, and as she drives north through the mountains and the majestic redwoods, she immediately feels inspired. Until she arrives at a building that has just gone up in flames. Devastated, she heads to Jack’s Bar to plan her next steps. The local watering hole is the heart of the town, and once she crosses the threshold, she’s surprised to be embraced by people who are more than willing to help a friend–or a stranger–in need.

Kaylee’s world is expanding in ways she never dreamed possible. And when she rescues a kitten followed by a dog with a litter of puppies, she finds her heart opening up to the animals who need her. And then there’s the dog trainer who knows exactly how to help her. As the holidays approach, Kaylee’s dread turns to wonder. Because there’s no better place to spend Christmas than Virgin River.

 

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 10/4/20

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

I think I need something different.  I’ve been having trouble getting into any stories lately, so I figure I might be in a rut.  I found this new to me author and series that looks good, so I thought I’d share.

Title:  Ace
Author: Jaime Lewis
Series: Trident #1
Release date: June 23, 2020
Description: Orphaned at a young age, Alex Hardesty was raised by her Navy SEAL uncle. As a military brat, she naturally gravitated to the military life.

Two years ago, as a former National Security agent, Alex nearly died in an explosion during a covert operation. Now, working in the private sector, she’s been assigned to track down hostages in a place to where she’d promised herself she’d never return: Afghanistan.

Thirsty for revenge against the deadly regime that has caused trauma-ridden flashbacks, Alex vows to eliminate the source of her nightmares once and for all.

But on her first day back in the field she has a collision with a blue-eyed, US Navy SEAL that kick starts her heart, adding more drama to the already dangerous situation. Though she’s surrounded by friends and colleagues who care about her and have sworn to protect her, Alex fears someone within the ranks lacks trust and loyalty.

US Navy SEAL, Lt. Commander, Marcus “Ace” Chambers knew from the moment he first saw Alex Hardesty that she was special. But this is no ordinary woman. While she is beautiful and intelligent; she has a target on her back, making her the most wanted woman in Afghanistan.

With danger lurking behind every corner can Ace and Alex balance the romance building between them while preventing further harm to themselves and their team before it’s too late?

But when her toxic ex-boyfriend shows back up and decides he wants to rekindle their relationship to further his shady business dealings things get a little dicey, not to mention dangerous. His violent and cruel heart forces her to distance herself not only from the man she loves but her friends and family as well. She desperately wants to tell her story, but fear holds her silent. With her broken heart and constant fear, she throws herself into her work by traveling to Ecuador on a humanitarian aid trip. She was not expecting someone to be waiting there for her to further complicate her life.

All that Rex “Potter” Richardson wanted to do was a live simple life alone outside of his career as a Navy SEAL. That was until a few months ago when the gorgeous and outgoing Tenley Cortez walked into his life and stole his heart. After a sudden and unexplained breakup, Potter is left with questions. The sudden distance Tenley puts between herself and her friends and family further adds to the mystery. When Potter and the team are called out for a mission to South America, he learns a shocking revelation about Tenley that threatens to unravel everything.

Together, can Potter and Tenley pick their way through the webs of deceit, blackmail, and violence to get their happily ever after?
