Giveaway: Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep

Poison Promise
Elmental Assassin #11
By Jennifer Estep

I specialize in making death wishes come true.

Pop quiz. Which do you think is deadlier: Burn, the nastiest drug ever to hit the mean streets of Ashland, or me, Gin Blanco, the assassin known as the Spider?

Answer: Me--because I don't kill you slowly.

Normally, drug dealers aren't my department. But I'm turning up the heat on some relentless Burn-pushing thugs who won't leave my friends along. Pushers who have my cop sister beside herself with rage, so I'm stepping up to keep her from doing something stupid and getting herself killed.

Once I'm in, I'm in, and these folks have picked their poison: the Spider's venom. But even the bad guys have their good days, and sometimes even my Ice and Stone magic isn't enough.
For behind the drug is vicious vampire with a scientific eye for results. And behind him... trouble like I haven't seen since I took down my legendary nemesis, Mad Monroe.

[Audio Review]: Kalona's Fall by P.C. + Kristin Cast

Title: Kalona's Fall
Author: P.C. + Kristin Cast
Narrator: Caitlin Davies
Series: House of Night Novellas
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: July 29, 2014

I received this book from Macmillan Audio, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  The shadows in Kalona's past will finally come to light We will learn about the winged immortal's secret history and discover how he went from being the Goddess's Warrior and Guardian to her enemy and betrayer.

Did Darkness taint Kalona as it did Neferet, or has the powerful immortal always preferred power over honor, and control over faith?

This novella will be crucial to fans understanding of Kalona, before his role in the explosive final installment of the House of Night, REDEEMED coming in October 2014.

Thoughts: This latest House of Night novella tells the history/past of Kalona. I enjoyed this one. I actually like these novellas more than the full length novels. Kalona isn't my favorite character, but he is a character that is surrounded in mystery, it was intriguing to see his past unfold. Definitely don't miss this one, especially if you've been with the series since the beginning.

Like the previous audiobooks in this series, Kalona's Fall is also narrated by Caitlin Davies.

Score: 3 Stars

Series Spotlight: Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper

This month's Series Spotlight is Molly Harper's Naked Werewolf series. It's one of my favorites. Actually Ms. Harper has become a fast favorite of mine these last few years. If you love humor and sexy werewolves, this is a series not to miss.

How to Flirt with A Naked Werewolf

Northern Exposure

Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.

For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .

The Art of Seducing A Naked Werewolf

 Baring It All

Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him.

Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous. . . .

How to Run with A Naked Werewolf
 
Down, Boy

Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger only to discover he’s really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don’t faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she’s known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham—that’s a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

The problem is—Caleb employs his lupine tracking abilities as a not quite- legal bounty hunter, and Anna is suspicious of both him and his profession. On the run from her past, with old problems closing in, she’d like to stay far, far away from anybody with connections to the law. Caleb, however, seems determined to keep her close. Are his intentions noble, or is he working a more predatory angle?

Anna’s been dreaming of returning to a semi-normal life, but now she’s experiencing a strange new urge . . . to join Caleb in running with the wolves.
