Title:  Morrigan’s Blood
Author: Laura Bickle
Series: Crow’s Curse #1
Release date: September 25, 2020
Description: Garnet has the blood of the legendary Morrigan – and legions of vampires and witches will go to war to possess that power.

As a trauma surgeon, Garnet Conners has seen more than her fair share of blood. But when one of her patients walks off the operating table and disappears into the night, she finds herself caught in a war between legions of vampires and witches in her city.

Garnet has dreamed of bloody battlefields for years – and a mysterious lover who controls a kingdom. In her waking life, Garnet is shocked to meet that man in a club. Merrel knows her from another life, a life in which she was the legendary Morrigan, goddess of death and war.

Garnet rejects the notion of magical incarnations altogether. But she falls in with Sorin, a handsome warlock who’s determined to protect the former bootlegger city of Riverpointe from a secret society of vampires. Haunted by crows and faced with undeniable proof of magic, Garnet scrambles to protect her career and loved ones from magical violence.

Abducted by vampires who seek to turn her into a vampire against her will, can Garnet seize the power of the legendary Morrigan to forge her own path in her embattled city? Or will she be forced to serve as a fearsome weapon in a deadly nocturnal war?

 

  • This is not part of a book hunt, but I wanted to share a little mental health crisis.  I know a lot of book worms like me may have anxiety over this COVID-19 disaster.  What to do?  Well, take one step at a time and know when you need to call for help.  According to what I’ve learned, this is a new kind of bad place we are all in.  With the anxiety, depression, or whatever you are experiencing is grief.  This isolation is great for some of us that relish in the “being left alone” but even I have been having trouble with the isolation.
  • I want to share a blog post by an author that I respect immensely for is Harmony Black series.  I want all of you out there that are feeling “weird” or “uncomfortable in your own skin” understand that you aren’t alone.  This is not something to be ashamed of or feel a need to hide.  Take care of yourself and know when to ask for help.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt Draft 6/14/20

 

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

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

 

  • This is something new that looks very interesting!  Check it out!

Title: A Grimoire Dark: A Horror Thriller
AuthorD.S. Quinton
Release date:  October 21, 2019
Description: An Orphan Girl.

A Hellish Spirit.

A fight for more than just her life.

When Del Lareaux leaves the St. Augustine orphanage, she is desperate to build a normal life for herself and Jimmy, the mentally handicapped boy she spent years protecting.

But when a hellish spirit is raised from the dark swamps of Louisiana, abominations of unimaginable horror begin to prey on the lost souls of New Orleans, and Del’s soul is the most coveted.

When Del learns the truth of her secret heritage, she is faced with a choice: forego the gift she was born with for the normal life she dreams of, or embrace her birthright and the dark consequences that follow.

A Grimoire Dark explores the Voodoo mythos like never before. Threads of Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe weave a nightmare veil through which dark elements of a Lovecraftian horror tale are glimpsed; for to view them directly would be ones undoing.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Small glimpse into a new release in March of 2021

TitleWild Sign
AuthorPatricia Briggs
SeriesAlpha & Omega #6
Release date:  March 2021
Description:  This series is set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson Series, but on a slightly earlier time line. It begins with a novella titled Alpha and Omega published in the On the Prowl anthology. The decision to continue the story was made after the anthology had already been published, which has caused some confusion, since “book 1” is a actually a continuation of the short story. The series has plenty of action, but there’s more emphasis on the romantic attraction between the hero and heroine. On a romance-readers scale, this series is sweet rather than steamy.

 

 

  • A Charley Davidson Book

TitleThe Graveyard Shift
AuthorDarynda Jones
SeriesCharley Davidson #13.5
Release date:  June 9, 2020
DescriptionGuarding a precocious five-year-old who is half-human, half-god, and 100% destined to save the world is no easy feat.

Garrett Swopes was the ultimate skeptic until he met a certain hellion and her husband. They vanished after stopping a catastrophic event and left him, a mere mortal, in charge of protecting their gift to mankind. But when she disappears as well, he needs the help of another breed of hellion. One who can see past the veil of space and time. One who betrayed him.

She will get a truce in the deal, but she will never earn his forgiveness.

Marika Dubois’s son—a warrior in the coming war between heaven and hell—was foreseen long before his birth. But to create a child strong enough to endure the trials that lay ahead, she needed a descendant of powerful magics. She found that in Garrett Swopes and tricked him into fathering her son. A ploy he has never forgiven her for. But when he knocks on her door asking for her help, she sees the fierce attraction he tries to deny rise within him.

And Marika has to decide if she dares risk her heart a second time to help the only man she’s ever loved.

Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/31/20

 

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

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

 

Title:  Maliki
Author: Kris Michaels
Series: Guardian Defenders #2
Release date:  May 26, 2020
Description: Betrayal.

When it comes at the hands of family, betrayal destroys lives. His reputation destroyed and career as a surgeon shattered, Harrison M. Boswell, VI, vanishes, and the alter-ego of Dr. Maliki Blue arises. His employer, Guardian Security, knows who he had been—but they are the only ones. Too bad pasts don’t stay buried. A distress call from the one person he couldn’t ignore drags him back to a place and time he’d sworn to forget and embroils him in a tangled web of small-town drama and three deaths. With one foot out of the door, Mal is ready to leave and never return, when the deputy sheriff appeals to him for the kind of help only he, and Guardian can provide.

Desire.

Dr. Maliki Blue exploded into her world at the scene of what would have been a successful murder—had the good doctor not intervened so swiftly and effectively to save the life of the gunshot victim. As Senior Deputy Sheriff of Pleasant County, VA, Poet Campbell’s instinct told her Dr. Maliki Blue was more than who he said he was. Checking out the gorgeous, sexy doctor will be one of life’s unexpected pleasures. Then life—and a suspicious set of unrelated circumstances—complicates everything, including her attraction to the sexy doctor.

Destiny.

He didn’t want to acknowledge his past or examine the reasons he left, but fate forced that hand. Fate also dropped Poet Campbell onto his lap. However, other than for his access to Guardian, she doesn’t need him, although neither would deny the gravitational pull between them. Not a fertile field to grow a meaningful relationship no matter how insatiable their physical attraction. Add corrupt officials and a psychotic serial killer and a tragic ending is almost preordained—almost.

 

 

Title:  Fury of the Gods
Author:  Amy Braun
Series:  Areios Brothers #3
Release date:  May 26, 2020
Description: Fate brings consequence.

Separated from his brother by curses and lies, Derek Areios is forced into hiding. With rogue goddesses on his side, he begins his search for the Mind of Cronus. But his plans come to a screeching halt when the Olympians send nightmarish warriors to hunt him. Creatures even the gods themselves fear.

Liam Areios, lost without his brother and trapped in service for the Olympians, continues the hunt for the Mind of Cronus. The remaining gods refuse to trust him—or any human—and Liam begins to see just how mad power has made them. Becoming entangled in the schemes of mortals and immortals, Liam will have to fight or lose everyone he loves.

Deadly monsters, betrayal, and pulse-pounding action fill the pages of the third novel in the AREIOS BROTHERS series.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/24/20

 

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

Here’s a series that looks interesting.

  • Today I found a series that I think might be the ticket if you are just plain down in the dumps with all of the world’s news.  I stumbled on it  via an announcement of a new release.  At first, I thought it’d be a lot of fluff and then I reconsidered.  Maybe this light, fun romantic mystery would be just the thing to lighten the load we all have been carrying.  It’s free on Kindle Unlimited, so I’m going to give it a try.

Title:  Suds and Sam
Author: Stella Marie Alden
Release date: October 17, 2019
Description: “What the heck are you doing here? I could’ve killed you!”
“Sugar, I strolled on up, whistling. I figured you couldn’t miss me.”

A dick in Manhattan? You’ve got to be kidding me.

Don’t get me wrong. I respect she’s got plenty of attitude. I especially hold her Uncle Vinny, a mob boss, in high esteem. Both he and her police-chief father explain how I should book my own funeral if I mess with her.

Not much for authority, I thank them for their concern. However, she’s mine and I plan on keeping her.

When she goes missing, at first I figure she’s miffed. Yeah, I may not always take her career as seriously as she’d like. But hell, didn’t I help her solve the missing-cat-caper? That should count for something, right?

When she doesn’t answer my texts, I check with her family and my stupid heart stops.

Where the hell is she?

Suds and Sam will make you laugh and yet keep you turning one more page all night long.

Grab your copy now.

Note: Beware of healthy, passionate, panty-melting scenes. No cliffhangers. Happy ending guaranteed

 

Title:  Suds and Sam Christmas
Author: Stella Marie Alden
Release date: November 9, 2019
Description: The miraculous ‘Weeping Babe of Brooklyn’ goes missing, Sam gets a call, and my vacation goes straight to hell.

“Whoa, now little darlin’, you may have work but not having a day off all year makes a man want some downtime.”
“What about Sam and Suds?
“Say it slow, like this. Sal-mon suds. Fish? Detergent? Not good.”
“Samantha and Suds? Sam and Sebastian?”
“Not the same ring. Admit it, Suds and Sam is perfect.”
“Yeah, I suppose we are.”

Sam’s crazy Italian family is back and Suds takes them on with his usual southern charm as he navigates through the holiday season.
Will they find the nativiy infant in time for Christmas?

Warning: Heated scenes and loads of laughs as this detective duo makes the season bright.

Title:  Suds and Sam for Hire
Author: Stella Marie Alden
Release date: December 30, 2019
Description: I told her no stakeouts without me but did she listen?

Hell no. While I try to earn a few bucks on the west coast, she takes on Manhattan’s most notorius serial killer.

Now she’s stuck in a snowstorm in the middle of nowhere with her cell phone off. Her police chief father sent out an Amber Alert, her Uncle Vinny sent goons to break my legs, and her friend, Frankie-the-hitman left his cat in charge.

What could possibly go wrong?

Join Suds and Sam as they weather their first fight, bag the bad guys, and run the gauntlet better known as her family.

Heated Scenes, hilarious hijinks, and happily-ever-guaranteed!
