New Releases...

Today marks some wonderful goodness coming readers way in the form of new releases.

First up is the latest release, Demon Bound, in the Guardians series by Meljean Brook. From Meljean's website:

The seductive and dangerous world of the Guardians now yields a secret that threatens the soul of a woman and the fate of the universe, both Demon Bound…

Among the Guardians, Alice Grey is known as the Black Widow—a woman trapped in a web spun by the demon Teqon. To save her soul, she agreed to deliver to Teqon the heart of the oldest and most powerful Guardian of all, or else be damned for eternity. After more than a hundred years, Teqon is calling in his debt.

Jake Hawkins is a novice Guardian whose gift of teleportation could be invaluable to Alice in determining her next move. But in aligning himself with her he never expected to fall in love. Now, their passionate flight to escape Alice’s damnable bargain is threatening both their souls. For they’re about to discover a hellish secret about the Guardians—something that will change their universe forever.

So I think I'm the last one to read this series. What the heck I was waiting for? I don't know. I have read the short story Falling for Anthony in the Hot Spell anthology and I will definitely be reading more. If you'd like to read some reviews for Demon Bound, Meljean has posted some on her blog here. This is one series I'm looking forward to gloaming! You can find out more about the Guardians and their world at Meljean's site. Demon Bound is the seventh book, including the three anthologies, in the series.

Next up is Sherrilyn Kenyon's latest entry into her Dark Hunter series, Stryker's story One Silent Night.

Blurb from Amazon:

While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies—which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race. To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters. But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra. Just when he thought nothing could stop him, he’s now embroiled in a centuries old war with a shrew who gives new meaning to pain.

Yep, I'm still reading the Dark Hunters and am curious to see how Stryker will be redeemed, or if he will.

The next new release is a new series by an author that is new to me. The first book in Lisa Hendrix's paranormal series about Vikings, Immortal Warrior, is released today. It sounds absolutely wonderful. The series is about nine Viking warriors who are cursed to turn into animals during the day and are men at night. Each warrior is a different animal and their story takes place during a different century. I will certainly be adding this to my TBR pile.

He came to England in search of treasure. Two hundred years later, he’s found her…
Ivar Graycloak is a brave warrior, a man known for his strength and integrity. He is also a man with a terrible secret. Long ago he was part of a Viking crew cursed by an evil sorceress to live for eternity as were-creatures. An eagle by day and a man by night, Ivar has lived a solitary existence for over two centuries. Then the king orders him to marry.

Lady Alaida is everything a man could want in a bride—intelligent, spirited, and beautiful—and their wedding night is a balm to Ivar’s lonely spirit. Then a seer brings him word of a dark vision, one that makes Ivar vow to stay away from his lovely wife forever. But now that Ivar has sampled Alaida’s passion, her humor and warmth, he is enthralled. His traitorous body-his very heart-longs for that which hecan never possess.

Lady Alaida may surprise him yet, though, for she has a power of her own-a power that will either destroy everything they hold dear or ultimately set them free…

I'm sure I've missed quite a few new ones coming out but these were the ones that I could remember. So, what new releases are you looking forward to?


  1. Get Demon Bound! it's really worth it and a great book :P

  2. Believe me Nath after all the great reviews I've been reading I'm getting it. I'll be near Borders on Thursday so with some luck they will have it in. I did win Demon Night from Meljean's recent blog contests so now I just need to get the rest of them. : )

  3. LOL, what?!? You haven't read any of them yet? In that case, you definitively need to ead it in order.

  4. Leslie -- Thanks for featuring my book IMMORTAL WARRIOR on your blog.

    Looks like you have a terrific reading list. I'm especially fascinated by the books you've picked for the fall reading challenge. I've read about half, but I think I'm going to use your list to dig into my TBR stack after I finish writing the next Immortal Brotherhood book.

    Best wishes to you and your readers as we head into the holiday season.

  5. Nath ~ *hangs head in shame* I know. Like I said I think I'm the last person to read this series. lol I will get Demon Angel, Demon Moon and Demon Bound by this weekend. Promise! lol

  6. Lisa ~ Thanks for stopping by. I read your interview on Yankee Romance Reviewers and really liked what I read. IMMORTAL WARRIOR sounds wonderful. I like the whole premise of the series. You do have your work cut out for you with all the historical research.

    The ol' TBR pile. I have a love/hate relationship with mine. lol Lots of treasures to be found in there but I get very impatient and want to read everything at once.

    I haven't read anthing by Loretta Chase but have heard that LORD OF SCOUNDRELS is a favorite of many. The In Death series is one I've been meaning to start for a long time. And C. L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series is one of my favorites.

    Good luck with the writing. Thanks for the good wishes. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
