Weekly in Books

Every single week, I have books falling down on my lap. Maybe it's the librarian status I have, or was it being the Book reviewer status. Maybe it's just because I'm a bookworm to the extreme. I did say I have more books than I could have the time to read them, but hey... let me share some of the ones I have weekly.

Yup... This week too many eroticas hahaha

Title: Punished; Brynn Paulin
Publisher: Resplendence Publishing
Released Date: ?
Pages: Ebook

Prim Natalia Cooper lives life on the straight and narrow, never veering into naughty territory. But she wants to. One night, years ago, her boyfriend gave her a few swats on the rear as part of their sex play and she loved it. She wants more. But he’s long gone and she hasn’t been spanked since. When she learns of a club where she can get exactly what she needs—anonymously—she’s so turned on and ready she can hardly bear it.

For Ethan Tavish, The Dungeon has served as a place to exert his dominance without making lasting commitments. He can hardly believe his eyes when he enters the play area to find his secretary, Natalia, bent over the spanking bench in a schoolgirl uniform. They’re both masked, but he’d recognize her anywhere. In an instant, he has a plan to give them what they both want…and perhaps a whole lot more.



Hold Me Tight: Heartbreakers (Silhouette Desire)Title: Hold Me Tight: Heartbreakers; Cait London
Publisher: Silhouette Desire
Released Date: 2004
Pages: 192




The Sicilian's Bride (Harlequin Romance)Title: The Sicilian's Bride; Carol Grace
Publisher: Harlequin Romance; 2009
Pages: 192

Inheriting a Sicilian vineyard and tumbledown farmhouse is Isabel Morrison's chance to start again. A graduate of the school of hard knocks, she's determined to stand on her own two feet.


Local vintner Dario Montessori wants Isabel's land. It once belonged to his family and he blames himself for losing it. He'll do anything to claim his vineyard--and only a stubborn redhead stands in his way....

The Forest of Hands and Teeth Title: The Forest of Hands and Teeth (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 1); Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers; Feb 2010
Pages: 336

Mary knows little about the past and why the world now contains two types of people: those in her village and the undead outside the fence, who prey upon the flesh of the living. The Sisters protect their village and provide for the continuance of the human race. After her mother is bitten and joins the Unconsecrated, Mary is sent to the Sisters to be prepared for marriage to her friend Harry. But then the fences are breached and the life she has known is gone forever. Mary; Harry; Travis, whom Mary loves but who is betrothed to her best friend; her brother and his wife; and an orphaned boy set out into the unknown to search for safety, answers to their questions, and a reason to go on living. In this sci-fi/horror novel, the suspense that Ryan has created from the very first page on entices and tempts readers so that putting the book down is not an option. The author skillfully conceals and reveals just enough information to pique curiosity while also maintaining an atmosphere of creepiness that is expected in a zombie story. Some of the descriptions of death and mutilation of both the Unconsecrated and the living are graphic. The story is riveting, even though it leaves a lot of questions to be explained in the sequel.

The Dead-Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 2)Title: The Dead-Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 1); Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers; March 2010
Pages: 416

Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves.

Title: Mad, Bad & Dangerous (Almost Human 2); Cat Marsters
Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing, (?)
Pages: Ebook

Mad, Bad & Dangerous is a stand-alone sequel to Almost Human.

Baelvar is gorgeous, charming, insane, childish and mildly psychotic. He’s also mated to Kett, who’s brilliant, bitchy, violent and more than a little psychotic herself. It’s a match made in heaven, except for one tiny detail…

Kett doesn’t want to be mated to anyone.

The Curse of Kett has befallen everyone she’s ever cared about, but impressing this fact upon Bael is a little difficult, what with all the terrifically explosive sex getting in the way. Oh, and the repeated attempts on Kett’s life from persons unknown are a bit distracting too.

Still, if they can just stop shagging and fighting for their lives for two seconds, surely she can convince Bael they’re actually a match made in hell. Can’t she?


Title: Falling Fast; Cerise DeLand
Publisher: Resplendence Publishing, (?)
Pages: Ebook

When Shana Carpenter meets Kade Stapleton years after she ruined his bronc busting career, she wants to make amends to him by building his reputation as a rodeo manager. But her plans go haywire when she faces him and is stunned by her irresistible desire for him. Making love to him often every day, though, cannot erase her guilt. And when she realizes she loves him, she finds herself with a bigger problem. Can she ever forgive herself for what she did? Can he ever forgive her? And can he ever wholly love her?

Hourglass (Evernight Novels)Title: Hourglass (Evernight #3); Claudia Gray
Publisher: HarperTeen (March 2010)
Pages: 352

Bianca will risk everything to be with Lucas.

After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend—the vampire Balthazar—hiding is no longer an option.

Soon, Bianca and Lucas are on the run again, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they travel, Bianca can't escape her destiny.

Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything . . . but can it survive what's to come?


The Silent Sea (The Oregon Files)Title: The Silent Sea (The Oregon Files #7); Clive Cussler
Publisher: Putnam Adult (2010)
Pages: 416

Clive Cussler's tales of the Oregon and its crew-"the clever, indefatigable Juan Cabrillo and his merry band of tough, tech-savvy fighting men and women" (Publishers Weekly)-have made fans of hundreds of thousands of readers. But the Oregon's sixth adventure is its most remark­able one yet.


On December 7, 1941, five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington State make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, stumbles upon a shocking revelation of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition-and a curse that seems to have survived for more than five hundred years. If Cabrillo's team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not . . . the only reward is death.

Angelology: A NovelTitle: Angelology; Danielle Trussoni
Publisher: Viking Adult (2010)
Pages: 464

Through the door opened by The DaVinci Code comes Trussoni’s entry in the hugger-mugger religious-society suspense subgenre, its textured prose as seamless as the never-ending stream of prayers offered up by St. Rose Convent’s Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. In that institution, celebrated for its angelic texts, lives Sister Evangeline, who prays, tends to library matters, and has become “a creature of obedience and duty” since her father brought her there when she was 12, two years after her mother’s death. The scholar Verlaine seeks concrete evidence linking the convent to Abigail Rockefeller, and before you can say, “I found this letter,” the multilayered process of Evangeline’s transformation has begun. The story takes flight in eminently readable fashion, effortlessly folding in technical information about things angelic and the religious life. It’s hard not to enjoy the secrets unearthed and appreciate what wings are to the angels who secretly walk among us—“a symbol of their blood, their breeding, . . . their position in the community. Displaying them properly brought power and prestige.” Powerfully entertaining. --Whitney Scott 

A Marriageable Miss (Historical Romance)Title: A Marriageable Miss; Dorothy Elbury
Publisher: Mills & Boon (2010)
Pages: 304

When Miss Helena Wheatley's wealthy father decides she should marry nobility, only her ingenuity keeps her from being trapped in an unwelcome marriage! But with her father suddenly falling ill, she is forced to turn to one of her prospective suitors and beg for his help.


Richard Standish, the Earl of Markfield, honorably agrees to aid Helena. He'll squire her around Town until her father recovers. Though when they are caught alone together, their temporary agreement suddenly looks set to become a lot more permanent....

Title: Rhythm of Love (Dance of Desire #4); J. Hali Steele
Publisher: Ellora's Cave Publishing; (?)
Pages: Ebook

Carter Gates, amateur Latin ballroom dancer, is ready to make a move on his sexy new assistant. Bree intoxicates him and her lithe body makes it hard to keep his hands to himself. But Carter has one rule—hands off the staff. His body isn’t listening.


Bree’s no better off. She has a taste for her new boss, one she can’t quench. Hiding the fact she’s best friends with his dance partner, she slips into a revealing outfit and his arms…just for one night of sexy, hot competition and a highly erotic tango that gives new meaning to “going up in flames”.


Bree’s friend has other ideas—she wants to keep Carter for herself. However, after spending a passionate evening in Carter’s arms, and his bed, Bree wants more. And she’s determined to get it.

Pregnancy Of Revenge (Harlequin Presents)Title: Pregnancy of Revenge; Jacqueline Baird
Publisher: Harlequin (2005)
Pages: 192

A gold-digger, that was all Charlotte Summerville was, and she was going to get everything she deserved! Billionaire Jake d'Amato was determined to make the money-grabbing beauty pay. He'd take his revenge - in bed! But Charlie's intentions were purely innocent, just like her! Suddenly she was married to a man who wanted her but hated her . . . and she was pregnant with his child.

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake, Book 8)Title: The Vampire & the Virgin (love at Stake #8); Kerrelyn Sparks
Publisher: Avon; (2010)
Pages: 384

Olivia's packing list:


1. Sunscreen
2. Bathing suit
3. Flip-flops


FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?


Robby's packing list:


1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)


Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .

Battle of the Network Zombies (Amanda Feral, Book 3)Title: Battle of the Network Zombies (Amanda Feral, Book 3); Mark Henry
Publisher: Kensington (2010)
Pages: 288

Clever, fast-paced, and so delightfully trashy that it should have been printed on Hefty bags, Henry's third Amanda Feral novel (after 2009's Road Trip of the Living Dead) smartly skewers popular culture. Brilliant, bitchy undead diva Amanda is desperate for a fledgling reality show to succeed, because being paid to judge it is the only thing that can keep her financially afloat. When someone murders the show's host, a would-be playboy wood nymph, the show's contestants—a snooty Belgian ghoul, a werewolf drag queen, a pair of sirens, a down-home backwoods stripper, and a tentacled manicurist—are all suspects. Amanda's got to solve the case while attempting to rebuild a relationship with her werewolf boyfriend. Henry gleefully delivers a sharp-edged, snarky whodunit with some smart and funny twists.
