Publication date: 06/23/2015
Genres: New Adult, Steampunk, Fantasy Romance

 

Synopsis:
In 1868 England, the competition to control agriculture is fierce…

…and nobody says no to Derby’s industrial magnate.

Except Annmar Masterson. The nineteen-year-old rejects his improper advances and instead takes an advertising position on a farm. She discovers the isolated valley is home to gifted species—including animal and plant shifters—who hide their lives from the rest of England. The blue threads only she sees on their clockwork machinery prove her heritage is rooted with theirs, but their world is so different that Annmar doesn’t know if she’ll ever belong.

Shapeshifter Daeryn Darkcoat blames himself for the death of his mate and swears he won’t be responsible for another pack. But when the farm he loves falls victim to an endless run of strange pests eating the crops, he joins the hunt, taking charge of an unruly team of predator shifters. In the midst of the battle, Annmar stirs feelings he can’t resist.

As Annmar becomes entangled in the fight against the pests, and with Daeryn, she discovers her magic might help…if she can learn to use it properly. If not, she’ll be forced to leave the people she has come to care for and become what she fears most: nothing more than another cog in the magnate’s gears.

THE UNRAVELING is a full-length novel, approximately 350 pages, for readers 18+ (new adult and older).

Please note: This is volume 1 of a three-part serialized novel. Volumes 2 & 3 will be published in 2015 to complete THE LUMINATED THREADS, a steampunk fantasy romance.

Pre-Order from Amazon

*It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?* Last Wool and Testament (A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery #1) by Molly MacRae

Published May 25, 2015 by Ashley Montgomery

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

(Clicking on the picture of the book will take you to it’s Goodreads page.)

From Goodreads:

Kath Rutledge is about to learn the true meaning of TGIF—Thank Goodness It’s Fiber.…

That’s the name of the spunky group of fiber and needlework artists founded by Ivy McClellan, Kath’s beloved grandmother. Though Ivy has recently passed on, the members still meet regularly at her fiber and fabric shop, The Weaver’s Cat, which Kath has now inherited. But that’s only the first in a series of surprises when Kath returns to the small town of Blue Plum, Tennessee, to settle her grandmother’s affairs.

There’s been a murder, and it turns out her grandmother was the prime suspect. Before she can begin to clear Ivy’s name, Kath encounters a looming presence in the form of a gloomy ghost. It turns out the specter has just as much interest in solving the murder as Kath. So, with a little help from the members of TGIF—and a stubborn spirit from beyond—she sets out to unravel the clues and hook the real killer.…

#SaleAlert The Irresistible Bundle by Senayda Pierre

Irresistible Bundle CoverBook & Author Details:
The Irresistible Bundle by Senayda Pierre
Publication date: 12/2014
Genres: New Adult
Goodreads

 

 

Synopsis:
The Irresistible Bundle includes:

Attraction (Prequel Novella)
Irresistible (Book One)
Desirae and Devon scene
Chelsea scene
Temptation (Book Two)
Yearning (Marco’s Novella, 2.5)
Bikini Wars scene
Reverence (Book Three)
Remiss (Never before released: Valentino’s Novella, 3.5)

Attraction:

It only takes a moment to feel that spark of attraction…

From the moment Carina Lobos and Jaxon Wright lay eyes on each other they can’t deny the attraction between them.

Irresistible:

What happens when you can no longer resist the irresistible?

Carina Lobos is a freshman in college. She’s beautiful, sexy, and absolutely irresistible to many. Jaxon Wright is a junior, captain of the rowing team, and can have any girl he wants. Their chemistry is undeniable and explosive.

When a sexual encounter goes viral, things spiral out of control. Carina’s officially branded “Jaxon’s best” and for a man-whore that’s saying a lot. Girls sneer at Carina while guys now see her as an easy lay.

As Carina attempts to push Jaxon away, the magnificent owner of Club 69, Valentino DeLuca captures her attention… but Jaxon won’t be dissuaded. While Valentino provides a sexy distraction, Jaxon’s relentless pursuit finally wears her down and they tentatively begin a relationship. Jaxon works to convince Carina that he’s genuine and that he wants the relationship to work. Although he is Mr. Wright he’s all sorts of wrong for Carina.

As great as Jaxon is in bed, Carina isn’t easily willing to give her heart. Can he prove to be too irresistible and ultimately win Carina’s heart, regardless of the competition?

Temptation:

This is Jaxon Wright’s story. Popular senior in college. Math major. Rowing captain. And beloved man-whore… Temptation incarnate.

Jaxon Wright was the King of the Campus… that is until a certain Spanish beauty named Carina Lobos walks into his life and knocks Jaxon down a peg… or two.

A year later and a lot has changed. Carina is a prominent figure in Jaxon’ s life. Their relationship is on an entirely different level. Jaxon has lost his pack of hyenas and they aren’t taking it well. They’re looking to make Carina pay. They’ve been replaced by the Irresistible 8 and the men in their lives.

Can Jaxon avoid the temptation Carina presents? Will Jaxon be able to find happiness with someone who isn’t Carina or will the temptation of what could be sabotage any other possibilities?

Yearning:

From the moment I met Valentino DeLuca I yearned for a love I thought was unattainable.

Marco Soriano fell in love with his best friend.

I’ve lived with the constant ache in my chest. I really have no excuse why I let it fester. I don’t go into relationships seeing the white picket fence with 2.5 kids. I get in, have a good time, and move on. I yearn for something more with Valentino but I don’t allow it to consume me.

For years Marco watched his best friend have relationships with others longing for the day he’d get his chance.

Truth-be-told I was saving myself for the day Valentino finally noticed me as something more than just his closest friend.

But then she came along and changed everything. Marco wanted nothing to do with her and yet she was too tempting to resist. She threatened everything he cherished because Valentino was falling for her.

Reverence:

Diego Lobos is every mother’s dream. He’s handsome, smart, athletic, and well-mannered. Diego attended an Ivy League college and managed to keep a near perfect GPA. Mothers want him as their future son-in-law. Girls swoon at the mere mention of his name. Guys want him to be on their team. Everyone wants to be friends with Diego Lobos.

He’s the guy everyone loves… And rightly so. But is he right for me? Can Diego fill the voids within me? Those vacant spaces that have been dark and empty for so long that I’d forgotten they existed until he stepped into my life… Diego is charismatic, charming, and genuine. He’s sexy without being an arrogant ass.

What more can a girl ask for? In my dark world I need more. I have a need most can’t fill. I demand certain expectations that have guys cupping their balls and running in the other direction. Can Diego be a submissive? Sometimes I think so and other times he just confuses the hell out of me. This particular detail matters though. I can’t ever go back to that time. I can’t ever be under another man’s thumb. I refuse to bend. Yes, I’m broken but I refuse to part with the little bit that’s left of me.

Love me or hate me. I don’t care. But everybody loves Diego… So why would he work so hard to be with someone like me?

Remiss:

“I don’t deserve you but I’ll spend forever trying to prove it.”

Valentino DeLuca spent years trying to decipher his feelings for his best friend, Marco Soriano.

Valentino didn’t notice men. He wasn’t attracted to them. He loved women; specifically his Spanish beauty, Carina Lobos.

But all of that changed when Marco became his anomaly.

From Goodreads:

A hit gone wrong, an impossible contract, revenge and the ultimate kicker… falling in love.

Mercy Reid is a runner.
She found the perfect place to hide, until it wasn’t.
Xavier “X” Blood always gets what he wants.
He had the perfect arrangement, until it wasn’t.

X is the mysterious tough guy from Royal Blood MC who gets shit done. Cross the Club and you get a visit from X. Only one person walks away at the end of it…and it isn’t you.
Mercy is hiding something. Something big. Looking to get lost, she runs from one hopeless situation right into the clutches of a monster.
When X and Mercy meet, something more electrifying than sparks fly. Something dangerous, passionate and forbidden.

When you deal in death, there’s only one way things can end…
Or is there?

Warning: If you like sparkly unicorns and hearts, Royal Blood IS NOT for you. If you like dark twisty anti-heroes and heart stopping roller coasters, Royal Blood IS for you. If you like teddy bears and kittens with whiskers, Royal Blood IS NOT for you. If you like unapologetic alpha males that talk dirty, Royal Blood IS for you. You have been warned.

*It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?* Crash into Me (Heart of Stone #1) by K.M. Scott

Published May 18, 2015 by Ashley Montgomery

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

What I’m reading:

Crash Into Me

(Clicking on the picture of the book will take you to it’s Goodreads page.)

From Goodreads:

What would you give up for everything?

Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed.

He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price.

The world he gave me fulfilled my wildest dreams, but would that be enough when the past crashed into the present?
