Publisher’s Description: For almost a century, Ildaria Garcia has been on the run, a trouble magnet with a knack for taking down bad guys. Lately, her vigilante tendencies have drawn unwelcome attention to her fellow Immortals. Forced to relocate, Ildaria is supposed to lay low in a new town. Instead, she quickly entangles herself with six and a half feet of muscular, tattooed trouble.

Joshua James Simpson Guiscard, aka G.G., knows a lot about Immortals—enough to make him wary. Yet from the moment Ildaria walks into his club, he feels desire stronger than anything he’s known. Accepting the fact that they might be life mates is disconcerting. But when her past catches up to them, G.G. faces a choice—confront his demons at last, or lose a passion that’s hot as hell.


Nervous Nellie says…

This book is part of a long standing series of romancing vampires. There is sex, some violence, swearing and a good ending.

Ildaria is a trouble magnet as the description says.  She grew up quickly after she was turned at age 14.  It was a horribly frightening event that has tortured her ever since.  She is under the protection of Lucian Argenaeu so she has to follow his rules.

This is the first book of a 31 book series that I have read so I am missing pieces.  Usually, I can figure out the players, and I did to an extent.  There are some missing info that I need to fill by reading the previous 30 books.

This was a welcome read and one that was hard to put down.  it was interesting to learn about another culture of vampires (each series has different vampire rules and culture standards).  For instance, these vampires can actually have children.  Rule is only one each 100 years.  They can only change one person in their lifetime.  Now that is tough since vampires live several human lifetimes.  If they meet and fall in love with a human that is not a life mate, they will have to watch that person age and die because they need to save there turning chip for their life mate.  I’m sure there is more to it, but since I’m a newbie to the series, that’s what I gleaned from the story.  If they do meet their life mate, oh, boy – get out of the way cuz they gonna need to get to the other.

I enjoyed the simplicity of the story.  There were no deep dark secrets that one part of the couple hid from the other.  It was a great straight forward romance.  Of course, there was some adventure, and the end?  Hmmm….let’s just say…it’s very interesting and no one dies.  I do believe I’ll be going back to read the first 30 in this series.

Books We’re Looking Forward To

Invested_Ivana_100Hello! How’s life treating you these days? I hope everyone is HEALTHY first and foremost and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. 🙂

Since we could all use something to look forward to right about now, I thought I’d share the list of upcoming books that I’m looking forward to.

Contemporary asshatTitle: A Contemporary Asshat at the Court of Henry VIII
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
US Pub Date: May 15, 2020

I stumbled upon this title when looking at audiobooks, and it looks fun. I’m a fan of Tudor England history, and MJD’s Queen Betsy series was highly amusing. So this play on An American Yankee in King Arthur’s Court looks to be a fun time.

 

AmericanDemonTitle: American Demon (The Hollows #14)
Author: Kim Harrison
US Pub Date: June 16, 2020

Whoop! Rachel Morgan is back! Harrison decided to return to the Hollows for one more tale, and I couldn’t be happier. What will Rachel, now married to her sometime enemy and ally, Trent Kalamack, and raising two daughters, have to deal with next?

 

AnyGivenDoomsdayTitle: The Phoenix Chronicles in Audio
Author: Lori Handeland
US Pub Date: Starting July 7, 2020

The four-book Phoenix Chronicles by Lori Handeland first came out in print in 2008. But the series was left incomplete after being dropped by the publisher. I think the publisher’s rights must have expired because I see Handeland has rereleased the ebooks and now is releasing audios! I’m super excited to see this series coming out again because I enjoyed it. I really hope that means we’ll get an end to the series now.

 

Peace talksTitle: Peace Talks (Dresden Files #16)
Author: Jim Butcher
US Pub Date: July 14, 2020

Finally! There is so much more to learn about the world of Dresden, and I can’t wait to get started. In preparation, Percy and I did a series reread, which I’ll write about very soon.

 

SpellsDeadTitle: Spells for the Dead (Soulwood #5)
Author: Faith Hunter
US Pub Date: July 28, 2020

Soulwood is set in the same world as Jane Yellowrock and follows a character named Nell who isn’t quite sure what kind of supernatural she is, other than she has a strong connection to Nature. It’s a great series, and I’m excited about a new installment.

 

InkSigilTitle: Ink & Sigil
Author: Kevin Hearne
US Pub Date: August 25, 2020

This is a new series by Kevin Hearn about a character that supposedly showed up in the Iron Druid Chronicles, Al MacBharrais, but whom neither my husband and I can recall, despite having reread the whole series not that long ago. But the description sounds good, and it’s set in a world I love written by an author I love, so I’m sure it will be fantastic.

 

KillingFrostTitle: A Killing Frost (October Daye #14)
Author: Seanan McGuire
US Pub Date: September 1, 2020

Another of my very favorite series. Toby’s story just keeps getting richer and richer, and each story connects to what has happened in the past. There’s no “monster of the week” here.

 

BattleGroundTitle: Battle Ground (Dresden Files #17)
Author: Jim Butcher
US Pub Date: September 29, 2020

I feel like my only comment about this book needs to be, “duh.” What urban fantasy fan ISN’T waiting for this installment? After a long drought without a new Dresden, we’re finally getting the firehose — two books in a row! Huzzah!

 

 

KittysMixTapeTitle: Kitty’s Mix Tape
Author: Carrie Vaughn
US Pub Date: October 16, 2020

I love the world of Kitty Norville. In fact, I just finished the Cormac/Amelia book and will be reviewing it soon, and I just picked up the book about Rick. So I can’t wait to see what the Mix Tape has in store.

 

fey_furiousTitle: Rivers of London Vol. 8: The Fey and the Furious
Author: Ben Aaronovitch
US Pub Date: November 10, 2020

I’ve really enjoyed these graphic novels in the world of Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London/Peter Grant series. Along with the novels, they help create a rich world, and they bring some fun humor to the stories as well.

 

ForgedTitle: Forged (Alex Verus #11)
Author: Benedict Jacka
US Pub Date: November 24, 2020

I have really enjoyed the Alex Verus series. Alex is trying to be a good guy, but circumstances are forcing him to descend into darkness. I’m anxious to see what choices he makes next.

 

Dirty DeedsTitle: Dirty Deeds
AuthorsR.J. Blain,  Diana Pharoh Francis, Faith Hunter, Devon Monk
US Pub Date: January 12, 2021

This anthology has a great line-up of authors! And the description promises stories from the worlds of Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock and Monk’s Ordinary Magic. Urban fantasy with humor sounds like a good time to me.

 

There are a few more titles I’m looking forward to but don’t have links for, such as Diana Gabaldon’s Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, the newest Outlander book, and both the next SPI Files and a new series coming from Lisa Shearin. And, of course, I always want The Next Book in any of my favorite series. 🙂

What’s on your upcoming book list that you’re excited about? Drop me a comment on this post. I’d love to see what else we all have to look forward to.

  #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Kathy Reichs to be Published by Scribner

JUNE 4, 2019 CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONSCORPORATE NEWS, SCRIBNER
NEW YORK, June 4

#1 New York Timesbestselling author Kathy Reichs, whose Temperance Brennan novels were the basis for the popular “Bones” television series, will publish her next two novels with Scribner, Simon & Schuster Canada, and Simon & Schuster UK. The deal marks the first time the bestselling author’s books will be published globally by one publisher. Simultaneous audio editions of the two novels will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio.

The first novel, A Conspiracy of Bones and Blood, to be published in March 2020, marks the return of Reichs’ popular heroine forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. In this chilling tale, Tempe must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and why the dead man had her cell phone number. A Conspiracy of Bones and Blood will be the 19th installment in the Temperance Brennan series.

“I’m excited that my new Tempe Brennan novels will be published around the world by the Simon & Schuster publishing group,” said Kathy Reichs. “And I am delighted to be returning to Scribner, my first and longtime publishing house.”

“We could not be more thrilled for the opportunity to publish Kathy Reichs at all our Simon & Schuster companies around the world,” said Carolyn Reidy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simon & Schuster, Inc. “We know that hers is a truly global audience, that there are Temperance Brennan fans in every corner of the world who eagerly await her next adventure, and that by putting a worldwide Simon & Schuster publishing effort behind her we will be able to help yet more readers discover the particular pleasures of reading Kathy Reichs.”

“The return to Scribner of Kathy Reichs and her inimitable Temperance Brennan is a glorious homecoming,” said Nan Graham, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Scribner. “We started publishing Kathy two decades ago with her #1 bestselling Deja Dead, years before the hit FOX series “Bones” was developed, and we are thrilled to be publishing her books again with A Conspiracy of Bones and Blood in spring 2020.”

A highly regarded forensic anthropologist, Kathy Reichs is one of only 100 forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of both the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She divides her time between Charlotte, North Carolina and Montreal, Québec.

World and audio rights were acquired by Nan Graham, Ian Chapman, CEO of Simon & Schuster UK and Commonwealth, and Kevin Hanson, President of Simon & Schuster Canada, from Deneen Howell of Williams & Connolly. Reichs is also enormously popular in translation, and Scribner will be handling foreign rights.

Book News and Author Announcements presents Hunt of the Gods!

One Book Two has some news! It’s the magic day for a cover reveal for Amy Braun’s new book to be released June 2019!!

book news

Title:  Hunt of the Gods
Author: Amy Braun
Series:  Areios Brothers #2
Release: June 4, 2019
Description: Power always demands a price.

Two months have passed since Derek Areios—war-scion and heir of Ares—and the band of rogue scions he’s aligned with recovered both the Thunderbolt of Zeus and the Heart of the Devourer and returned them to the Gods. During the battle, Derek discovered he could control not only the element of fire, as all war-scions can, but also the dark element “aether,” making him the only scion alive to wield two types of elemental magic.

Commanded by Zeus to retrieve the Trinity Weapons and the Shards of Cronus, Derek and the rogue scions are thwarted in their goal by a gang of water-scions with a grudge against one of the rogues—Thea, heir of Poseidon. Both groups travel to an uninhabited island to recover one of the Shards––the Eye that belonged to Cronus, King of the Titans. But what they encounter will lead them down a path of brutal betrayals, hard truths, painful memories, and desperate actions.

With angry and impatient gods breathing down his neck, a curse that allows Ares to control him, a prophecy he’s desperate to avoid, a magic spear corrupting his thoughts, and two forms of elemental magic, Derek has a lot of baggage—and a lot of power. Will the price of using that power to satisfy the Gods be too much for him to pay?

Mythological monsters, explosive magic, and devastating truths take center stage in the second novel of the action-packed AREIOS BROTHERS series from Amy Braun.
