I am so excited for the reviews I’ll have coming out this month!
BLOOD RED KISS – Kresely Cole, Larissa Ione, Gena Showalter
RELEASE DATE: 9/20
Good things always come in threes—and this paranormal romance anthology featuring steamy stories from New York Times bestselling authors Kresley Cole, Larissa Ione, and Gena Showalter is no exception!
Get ready for a collection chock full of vamps, demons, aliens, and plenty of sizzle!
In Kresley Cole’s celebrated story “The Warlord Wants Forever,” the first in her scorching Immortals After Dark series, vampire warlord Nikolai Wroth will stop at nothing to claim his Bride, the one woman who can make his heart beat again. But can beautiful Myst the Coveted accept an enemy vampire as her own?
Tehya has spent the last twelve years as an accidental wolf, but is truly a vampire at heart. When she gets injured, Lobo sneaks her inside MoonBound’s headquarters and nurses her back to health…with potentially deadly consequences. Desire collides with danger in “Forsaken by Night,” a MoonBound Clan novella from Larissa Ione!
In Gena Showalter’s Otherworld Assassins novella, Dark Swan, Lilica Swan isn’t quite human or otherworlder; she is the best—and worst—of both. She is willing to do whatever proves necessary to save her sister from the seductive and deadly Alien Investigation and Removal agent, Dallas Gutierrez, even bond her life to his…effectively wedding him. But without consummation, the bond will fade. Can Dallas resist his insatiable desire for the powerful beauty? Or will she lead to his ultimate downfall?
SHADOW SILENCE – Yasmine Galenorn
RELEASE DATE: 9/27
New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn invites readers to Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living and the lake never gives up her dead…
Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater, and I’m a spirit shaman. It’s my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people—and secrets—don’t always stay buried.
My best friend Peggin finds herself under a curse after she is almost taken by the Lady of the Lake, and the Unliving are determined to drag her back to the hungry waters. As Bryan—my guardian and mate—and I work to break the hex, we uncover a dark and violent mystery from the past. One the Hounds of Cú Chulainn will do anything to guard—even if they must summon a legion of the dead to destroy Whisper Hollow.

Ladies and Gents, Maya Banks knocks it out AGAIN! With Every Breath is her latest in the Slow Burn Series and does it go down smooth.
Eliza Cummings has been one of the boys for years working for Devereaux Security Services and running from a past she knew would haunt her forever. With a secret no one knows, not even her most trusted partner, Eliza has closed herself off from love and letting the right person in to her heart. So why does her latest enemy seem to be working his way in to her closet of skeletons? Especially right when he past seems to be creeping in and threatening the life she’s built
Wade Sterling has never claimed to be anyone but himself and a feisty blonde is no match for his sarcastic tongue. He’s entertained Eliza and her fool hardiness for some time. But when she runs off on a suicide mission after saying goodbye to her brothers in arms, he knows there’s only one man can bring her back from the brink: the one who loves her.
As always, Maya Banks has made me fall in LOVE with her characters. Eliza is not only headstrong and stubborn, her team knows she can back it up and I love seeing that in a female character; especially one that has such a roller coaster of self-discovery as Eliza Cummings. Finally learning that her past is based in such misery made me understand why Eliza is so closed off. Having a man manipulate your mind at the age of 16 and warp you into confusing obsession and love with control and oppression would make any person want to swear off human connection.
Wade is strong enough to see the changes happening in Eliza even if their interactions up until now had been schoolyard bullying and sarcastic barbs thrown at one another. Both a deflection from how they felt about one another. Two strong, level-headed, and strong minded people would seem catastrophic in a relationship but Wade understands Eliza’s need to be iron-willed. Yes, he wants to protect her from the ugly past that she’s run back to erase, but he knows that taking that revenge or justice (however you see it) away from her would results in her safety, yes. But she’s also so determined to avenge the women who died (which she thinks is her fault) that she would weasel her way out and get back to her task, no matter what the ones that love her said if they tried to hold her back.
Eliza’s journey of abandonment to realization is braced by Wade’s own determination to show her that she means the world to him. So when she falls, stumbles, crashes under the weight of realizing that she truly has a family, brothers and sister, who love her, she can stand firm. Wade is one of the most strong-willed male characters I’ve read in a long time. He not only has the strength to be there for Eliza and step back when she needs to be the strong one, he never once crosses the boundary and seems to always know exactly what Eliza needs to survive.
I cannot WAIT for more the Slow Burn series (or any new Maya Banks material in general)!!
Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!
