Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 6/16/19

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 a series that I’ve always wanted to read but have never taken the time.  Author Al K. Line has published book #11 in the Wildcat Wiazrd series.

Title: Sand Storm
Author: Al K. Line
Series: Wildcat Wizard
Release date: April 9, 2019
Description:   When the disembodied head of a dead Ethiopian wizard keeps freaking out your wife, there’s only one thing to do. Go get lost in the desert.

With sand in every crevice, and not enough sunscreen, I wasn’t in the best of moods before everything went to hell, which it inevitably did. Treasure hunts, evil wizards, death-defying stunts, it would have been a cool adventure if it hadn’t happened to me.

Hi, I’m Arthur “The Hat” Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. Praying for snow.

 

 

TitleViktor
Author: Teresa Gabelman
Series: The Protectors #11
Release date: April 27, 2019
Description: After having his life shattered by the woman who held his heart, Viktor Valentino put work before everything. Many years later, learning the truth behind his lover’s deceit, his anger shifts to the man responsible for not only her betrayal but her gruesome death. Viktor throws himself into finding him to not only appease his rage but to possibly save humanity.

Lacey Cruz has always wanted to be a writer, but she’s never had the chance to pursue her passion. After being fired from a company she was employed with since graduating high school, she now has plenty of time on her hands.

Lover of all things paranormal, Lacey sets out to do research in hopes that special something will fall in her lap. Something does in the guise of a powerful vampire warrior. What Lacey doesn’t realize is she may be the heroine in her own real-life novel.

 

TitleSEAL Forever
Author: Kris Michaels
Series: Silver SEALS #6
Release date:  May 21, 2019
DescriptionA career ending injury forced Creed Lachlan out of the Navy SEALs. Now he works as a freelance contractor for a highly classified sub-set of Homeland Security, the Bone Frog Division. His country calls when it needs his elite skills. His current mission is to identify the production site for emerging “dirty” bombs. If that dictate wasn’t enough, his team must locate the missing CIA agents who’d previously tracked the weapons, and that team’s last known location was Cuba. His contact in Cuba wasn’t the sixty-year-old man he’d been told to expect, but a sultry beauty hellbent on driving him insane.

Mariella Diaz’s uncle sat atop the largest black-market organization in Cuba. Outmaneuvering the corrupt communist regime to provide the people of her country with necessities was second nature. Even so, keeping the sexy American and his team out of danger would require extra diligence. In a game of cat and mouse played out in a deadly arena, Mariella faces a risk more perilous than capture, torture, and imprisonment. She risked losing her heart to Creed Lachlan.

Creed wanted Mariella. He wanted to ease the pain that peeked through her bravado, to love and protect the woman who defied and antagonized him at every turn. Creed’s only concern, could she love a SEAL, forever?

 

Title:  Hot SEAL, Savannah Nights
Author: Kris Michaels
Release Date:  June 4, 2019
Description:  Rio North wasn’t ready to leave the SEALs and his brothers in arms, but his destiny called him to Savannah. Born into wealth, he used his family’s fortune to help his teammates. While his friends in the military teased him about being a babe magnet, it took a little help from fate in the form of mistaken identity to connect him with the woman he wanted permanently in his life. If only she’d quit running from him.
Meghan Williams finally has her life under control and has sworn this was the last time she’d let her sister “fix her up” with a blind date… until she walked into the restaurant and saw him. Black slacks and blue shirt… yep. Fit the description. She’d never say a bad word about her sister again.
This charming, handsome man couldn’t be her date. In this case, it sucked to be right. Mistaken identity much? But even after realizing her error, he still wanted to see her again. Nope, nope, nope. He was gorgeous. He drove an expensive import; his family ran the biggest company in Georgia, and she was… everything he wasn’t. Even though her instincts said he was trustworthy, her life experience screamed run.
What’s a girl to do when a gorgeous former SEAL pursues her with the same degree of intensity he brought to his former profession?

Book Spotlight on Molly Harper’s new Audiobook!

One Book Two is spotlighting author Molly Harper and her new release in the Mystic Bayou series on Audible.

Okay, here’s the scoop.  If you are an Audible audiobook member (you know who you are), you know that included with your membership you get two Audible Original books for free each month.

Audible Originals are exclusive audio titles created by celebrated storytellers from worlds as diverse as theater, journalism, literature and more, all produced in the Audible studios.

Well, when it releases on June 6, 2019, Audible is going to list Molly Harper’s new Mystic Bayou series book called Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues as one of the Audible Originals.  Cool, right?

I have listened to the first two books in the series (here are the reviews):

How to Date Your Dragon by Molly Harper

These books are hilarious standalone books (though they are better if started from the beginning and listened to in order) brimming with otherworldly charm from the reigning queen of paranormal romantic comedy, Molly Harper.

Title: Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues
Author: Molly Harper
SeriesMystic Bayou #3
Release date:  June 6, 2019
Description: Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shapeshifters, vampires, witches and dragons live alongside humans.

Ingrid doesn’t ask for much. The solitary tree nymph just wants to live a quiet life running her ice-cream shop in peace. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to shake her new neighbor, Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department and so good looking it just isn’t fair.

If there’s one thing Ingrid doesn’t need, it’s someone poking around in her business. But the more she gets to know the hunky mathematician, the more she finds herself letting her guard down. Can she trust him with her secrets, or will her past destroy everything?

Book Spotlight on Jenn Stark’s new Wilde Justice addition!

One Book Two is spotlighting author Jenn Stark and her new release in the Wilde Justice series!

Jenn has been busy writing and she has released book #3 in the Wilde Justice series.

As the first Justice of the Arcana Council in two hundred years, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde is tasked with taking out the most dangerous magic-wielding criminals on the planet.

 

Title:  The Hallowed Knight
Author: Jenn Stark
SeriesWilde Justice #3
Release date:  May 29, 2019
Description: The world is full of magical things…

With a day job that requires her to hunt down psychics who use their metaphysical gifts as weapons, Tarot-reading Justice of the Arcana Council Sara Wilde has no time for fairy tales. So when her newest case pleads for her assistance against brownies, sprites, and pixie dust, she’s more than ready to file it under “not a chance.”

But these Neo-Celts mean business, with a boldly charismatic leader who vows to return the world to the iron-fisted rule of the ancient gods. That plan infuriates the fiercest member of the Arcana Council, Death, whose deep Irish roots hide more secrets than Sara ever realized, and draws the focus of the dark-eyed, seductive Magician, deftly weaving his ever more twisted schemes.

At the Council’s behest, Sara plunges headlong into Irish folklore, fantasy, and the very real, very frightening truth of the spaces between worlds, where the darkest memories go to hide… Memories that could upend everything Sara’s finally claimed as her own.

Travelers beware! The fairies will all come out to play when you chase The Hallowed Knight.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/26/19

 

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.

  • I don’t know either of these authors, but the cover caught me and so did the description.  The price of free sure didn’t hurt either.  Get it here.

Title: Infernal Assassin: Vampire Killer
Author: Melissa Hawke, Drake Mason
Series: Agent of Magic #1
Release date: May 24, 2019
Description: A bloody ritual left my sister in a coma. I’m going to get her back.
It’s been two years, seventeen days, and twelve hours since I discovered my sister’s body surrounded by witchcraft and black magic. She’s barely kept alive by machines – and if I can’t pay the bill this month, the mages at Fallen Oaks will pull the plug. So when my ex-employer shows up at my door with a possible cure, it’s tempting to slip back into my role as a killer for hire. One job, he tells me, and I could have the answers I need to save Cat for good.

The only problem is, I’ll be working for vampires – the same soulless creatures I used to hunt. According to them, my mark is about to release a modified version of the wolf plague that will decimate the supernatural races. They say I’ll be doing the world a favor. I don’t care about the politics, I’m just trying to save my sister. But when I arrive in Belize with my vampire entourage, the mark isn’t what she seems, and the man protecting her is my ex-boyfriend. The same one who testified against me when the Trust took away my magic.

Dominic freaking Finch. Wizard first class, ex-army badass, and a terrific kisser. And now, the only obstacle in the way of completing my mission. Thanks to him, I’m not allowed to use my arsenal of enchanted weapons, as decreed by the magical governing body we both used to work for. I’ve spent the last year at the bottom of a bottle, holed up with a baby dragon and a very grumpy faerie. But if I can prove who was really behind the ritual that destroyed my sister, I might just get my life back. For Cat to live, someone has to die. Luckily, I’m great at killing people.

Titles in the Agent of Magic series:
1 – Infernal Assassin: Vampire Killer
2 – Infernal Betrayal: Wolf Hunter
3 – Infernal Vengeance: Demon Slayer

Infernal Assassin: Vampire Killer is the first book in Agent of Magic, a thrilling urban fantasy series featuring a witchy heroine fighting a paranormal conspiracy. If you like sexy forbidden romance, deeply flawed characters and heart-pounding supernatural suspense, you’ll be spellbound by Melissa Hawke’s magical new series. Scroll up and one-click today!

Title:  Silenced by the Grave
Author: Lina Gardiner
Series: City of Bones # 2  Jess Vandermire #6 
Release date: April 15, 2019

Vampire hunters Jess Vandermire and John Brittain are supposed to be relaxing in the City of Lights while Jess’s brother, Regent, a Catholic priest, fulfills a three-month assignment. Only their time in Paris so far has been anything but a vacation…

Last month, they managed to put down a demon uprising, but that’s nothing compared to what’s going on now. There’s a serial killer on the loose, the vampires are on the verge of civil war, and behind it all, there’s a secret society pulling the strings. If that isn’t bad enough, Jess’s newfound twin sister is stirring up trouble everywhere she goes.

But Paris is a dark place, alive with shadows of the past. If Jess and Britt don’t find some answers soon, mankind could become enslaved forever….

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/12/19

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.

  • I have been a fan of Rob Blackwell for years. My favorite books of his are the Soren Chase series.  I have news that he’s starting a new series starting Jules Castle.  Read the description, check out the cover.  Both will catch you hook, line and sinker.

Title: Riders on the Storm
Author: Rob Blackwell
Series: Jules Castle #1
Release date: May 21, 2019
Description: Dakota Territory, 1883: A land of violence, lawlessness—and vicious monsters.

Jules Castle can outsmart, outgun, and outrun any bandit in the Old West. But will her legendary skills be enough to save her?
Three years ago, Jules’ outlaw father vanished during a mysterious mission. Since then, she’s kept up the family business, robbing banks and chasing clues to his whereabouts across the Territory. Unfortunately, his trail sets her right in the path of supernatural, hard-to-kill creatures known as Vipers, whose bite will transform anyone into one of their kind.
Jules is determined to save her father, no matter the peril or cost. With the help of a bounty hunter and her adopted sister Miranda, she will have to pull off an impossible rescue. Hounded by former members of her father’s gang, hunted by a U.S. Army posse, and pursued by Vipers, Jules’ chances are slim. Can she beat the odds one last time?
  • Here’s another awesome cover and description that hooked me.

Title Reaper Witch: Wolves and Zombies
Author: Chanda Stafford
Series: Urban Magic #1
Release date: May 10, 2019
Description: She spent years avoiding the dead. Now they’re coming after her.
Three years ago, Max Norton left home to open a tea leaves and tarot shop. It seemed like a good trade: escape the King of Hell and live a low-key life free from scrutiny and death threats. For a Scythe, a half-human paranormal entity who can open literal portals to Heaven and Hell, and who’s hounded by creatures both light and dark, it’s a dream come true. Until an annoyingly handsome ghost shows up and demands that Max help him solve his murder.

She wants nothing to do with it, but when zombies start attacking children and demons are sent to kill her, she knows this is one fight she can no longer avoid. Her ex-boyfriend, a charismatic wolf shifter, tells her about a dead zone in the forest where a necromancer is practicing black magic.

The only way to stop him is with the forbidden powers she ran away from; powers that will put a target on her back, because they mark her for a destined role in Hell she has no intention of fulfilling.

Saving the world from the zombie apocalypse may literally mean challenging the armies of Hell and facing the past she ran away from. With time running out, Max and Luke have to figure out who’s raising the dead and turning them into bloodthirsty monsters before they kill the few people left that she actually cares about. Hiding in the shadows, a mysterious enemy holds a secret that could change Max’s life forever…

Assuming she lives long enough to hear it.
