In My Mailbox Monday

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme, and it is hosted by The Story Siren

This past weekend, I've got a few new books for my Nook.
(Descriptions from B&N)
.99 cents Nook
An Alpha's Path by Carrie Ann Ryan

Melanie is a twenty-five year old chemist who has spent all of her adult life slaving at school. With her PhD in hand, she's to start her dream job, but before she does, her friend persuades her to relax and try to live again. A blind date set up through her friends seems like the perfect solution. Melanie can take one night away from the lab and let her inner vixen out on a fixed blind date - a chance to get crazy with a perfect stranger. The gorgeous hunk she's to meet exceeds her wildest dreams – but he is more than what he appears and Melanie's analytical mind goes into overdrive.

Kade, a slightly older werewolf (at over one hundred years), needs a night way from the Pack. Too many responsibilities and one near miss with a potential mate made Kade hide in his work, the only peace he can find. His brother convinces him to meet the sexy woman for a one night of fun. What could it hurt? But when he finds this woman could be his mate, can he convince her to leave her orderly, sane world and be with him and his wolf-half, for life?

 Betrayal by Mayandree Michel
.99 cents Nook    
 At seventeen, Cordelia is an ordinary teen with an extraordinary and frightening secret. A secret that induces vivid dreams which she not only experiences true love, but crippling fear while barely escaping with her life each night.

After a life altering event, Cordelia has an unexpected encounter with Evan, the mysterious boy from her dreams, who reveals who and what she is – a descendant of the Greek gods. At that moment everything she knows of her world is a lie, and she must leave the present and go into the past to assume the role she was put on this earth for – safeguarding her ancient empire amidst evil forces that toil hastily to destroy it.

In a race against time, Cordelia must decide if she is truly a part of this dangerous world, or risk defying the gods, and ultimately lose the boy who has put a claim on her heart.

Mailbox Monday

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme, and it is hosted by The Story Siren

I love paperback books and The Vampire's Betrayal is the newest to my bookshelf and TBR list.

Description:

Jack risks his life by opening a portal to the underworld to rescue Connie. While in the land of the dead, he witnesses an awesome ceremony as a band of honest-to-God angels swear Connie in as the vampire slayer! Using the power of his love, Jack manages to bring Connie back to the land of the living even though she threatens the existence of him and his kind.

Connie has no memory of being anointed the vampire slayer, and her activation won't be complete until a mysterious sword materializes. William orders Jack to kill her for her own good before she discovers her deadly mission. After all, if she dies before she is activated, she will spend eternity in paradise with her baby son. But if she lives to become the slayer, she will be immortal, doomed to the existence of a half-vampire, half-human killer. But how can an anguished Jack kill the woman he loves?

Meanwhile, the bloodthirsty Old Lords work to harness elemental powers to raise the evil dead! Their wicked plan would free every twice-killed vampire from hell and turn them loose on the citizens of Savannah. William, weakened by a power he doesn't understand, must do battle with the Vampire Council before they can unleash their bloodthirsty minions. Will he be able to survive the double onslaught of the Old Lords and the vampire slayer?

Chat with me Wednesdays #3

Introducing a new feature to my blog - Chat with me Wednesdays
What is Chat with me Wednesdays?
Every other Wednesday I will post a video answering questions or responding to comments sent/posted by readers/viewers. I have received many emails in regards to the Rulers of Darkness series and I thought this would be a fun way to respond.
Feel free to post questions below and/or leave a comment. I will try to answer as many questions as I can in the scheduled time I have to complete the video. (Note: Be respectful)
Okay, let's get started.

I apologize for not posting videos the last two weeks. My husband and I moved and had issues with getting someone out here to set up our internet service. I never noticed how much web surfing I do until I couldn't. It feels great to be back and I hope you enjoy this video.

Question: Who will be the hero of Rulers of Darkness #3, Caressed by a Crimson Moon? Is it Gabriel, Gannon, Hadrian, or Sonya? Watch and find out.

Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2) - Night Owl Reviews Top Pick


"A delicious morsel of paranormal romance! [...] With a second release under her belt, Amanda J. Green shows true promise as a highly addictive author for the paranormal romance genre."

I'm so happy that Talina, the reviewer, enjoyed my first book, Caressed by Moonlight, and I'm ecstatic that she loved the second. To read her full review click here.

 
Description:

Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #6

18 and Over Blogger Follow Hop is hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines.This hop runs through the weekend. Have a blog that reviews and features mainly 18+ books and want to join? Head over to Reading Between the Wines.


Question of the week: Have you ever snuck a peek at the end of a book before reading it? 


Nope, I have never read the end of the book. I will not lie, I have been tempted, but I just can't bring myself to ruin the book by knowing what is going to happen. Now, there have been some books (very very few) that I have not finished. I agree with Crystal, it is like someone ruining a movie by telling you how it ends.


 Now, something...yummy to gander at for the heck of it lol Enjoy!

Review of Tempted by Blood (Sweetblood #3)

Amazon
Tempted by Blood (Sweetblood #3)
by Laurie London
4.5 of 5 Stars

Description:
Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two Vampire coalitions:Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors….He might be known for his effortless charm, but Guardian Jackson Foss is hiding a terrible secret. For months, he has battled the emergence of his dark nature—deadly urges that threaten to consume him. And those cravings only intensify when he meets Arianna Wells, the human he's been assigned to protect. Smart and perceptive, Arianna doesn't seem like a dangerous temptress. Yet she awakens in Jackson an unstoppable need that, if left unchecked, will brand him a traitor…a crime punishable by death.But soon their bond may be Arianna's only hope. For stalking her in the shadows is a merciless enemy—one who will stop at nothing to claim her completely….

Review:
AGAIN!!! I did it again. I started a series on the third book. I don't know why or how I manage to do this so often...I guess I like 3.  Let's get to my thoughts For beginning with the third book, it was not confusing. I really do love when authors write a series with books that can be independent of each other. 
Jackson Foss is a Guardian, sworn to protect the humans that the Dark Blood would drain of every last drop. He is a tortured, chiseled, handsome, male who is on edge of turning bad - my favorite type! 
Arianna Wells is an intelligent woman with a strong will and knows what she wants.

~ He pressed the head of his shaft against her entrance and growled with primal satisfaction, she was creamy with need for him. Every sane thought he had ever had, every fear, every worry vanished. There was only her body and his, and the ravishing need that consumed him. Dorian thrust hard and deep.~

Today is Teaser Tuesday!
This teaser comes from Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1)

~ Victoria was different. She was hot and cold, sweet and sour, and he loved it. Her lavender scent was refreshing, innocent, and seductive. Her eyes were mesmerizing, her lips inviting. He longed to feel her warm, soft body beneath his, her legs wrapped around his hips. His fangs sprang free as he imagined burying himself deep inside her over and over again as her sweet, spicy blood slipped down his throat.~

Caressed by Moonlight Giveaway!

Welcome to the Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1) Giveaway!

April 5th-10th

I've been giving away my second book, Caressed by Night, but there are a lot of interested readers who haven't read the first within the Rulers of Darkness series. So, I've decided to giveaway 1 print copy and 1 ebook (PDF) of Caressed by Moonlight. I will be giving away a few copies of Caressed by Night later in the month - perfect opportunity to win  & read the first and be prepared for the second.

Description:

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.

Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Prince Vlakhos.

After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian's dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive
Excerpt:

Dorian despised parties. He hated the young girls fighting for his attention and he hated the jealous men. But he could not serve his Clan if he wasn’t seen. He had to mingle with society if he was to draw the attention of the hunters away from his family.
