Ahhh....nothing says a cool early-autumn Saturday morning like a trip to the library! The smell of crisp, coloring leaves lingering in the air...neighbors out mowing their lawns, scenting the neighborhood with the enticing aroma of fresh cut grass...mmm, my favorite season of all! And after fall comes winter, and what better way to spend the winter then cuddled up on the couch with a blanket, cocoa, a cat or two (or three...sigh...) and a good book!
Today I'm happy to have possession of (if only for the next few weeks...)
ALL YOU DESIRE by Kirsten Miller - #2 in the Eternal Ones Series
Haven Moore and Iain Morrow have been living a blissful life in Rome, an ocean away from the Ouroboros Society and it's diabolical leader. But paradise is not to last. The mysterious disappearance of Haven's best friend, Beau, sends the pair running back to New York, where they encounter the Horae, an underground group of women who have spent centuries scheming to destroy Adam Rosier. Only they can help Haven uncover the secret to Beau's whereabouts in one of her past lives. But their help comes at a price: Haven must infiltrate the Ouroboros Society, charm Adam Rosier, and lure him into a trap. It's a plan the Horae believe will save the world - but Haven and Iain fear that it may destroy the happiness they've been chasing for two thousand years.
SIRENSONG by Jenna Black - #3 of the Faeriewalker Novels
When Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, it's no easy decision. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania claims not to be the one behind the death threats; and her son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he suggests Dana might be arrested for (supposedly) conspiring with her Aunt Grace to usurp the Seelie throne. So she and her father better do as they're told...
The journey through Faerie is long - and treacherous. Dana thought it would be a good idea to have her friends along, but her sort-of-boyfriend, Ethan, and her bodyguard's son, Keane, just can't seem to get along, and Kimber's crush on Keane isn't making things any easier. When a violent attack separates Dana from their caravan, the sexy Erlking saves her just in the nick of time...and makes it clear that he hasn't given up on making her his own.
Arriving at Titania's beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania's granddaughter, and is suddenly a fugitive, forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the forces of the Seelie Court - or, worse, the Erlking - catch up with her? And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?
