Sunday Sweets

This post follows The Story Sirens meme, In my Mailbox. Check it out here.

This week I kept my buying down, seeing as a went a little out of control last week.

Shift (Shifters, #5)
Being the first female werecat enforcer isn't easy. Scars accumulate, but I'm stronger in so many ways.

As for my personal life? It's complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother's death and my father's impeachment, it's all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe.

With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option...

Mortal Sins (World of the Lupi, #5)
Welcome to Eileen Wilks’s world of the lupi, of “strange magic [and] fantastic realms,”* where some sins are so dark and unlikely, no one thought to forbid them…

FBI agent Lily Yu is in North Carolina with her lover and mate Rule Turner, lu nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan, where he is to take custody of his son from the boy’s grandmother. It’s a purely personal trip until Rule, in wolf form, finds three bodies in a shallow grave. They carry the stench of death magic, which makes the murders a federal crime. Lily takes charge of the investigation, and soon realizes that nothing adds up—not the motives, not even the accused killer, who’s behind bars when death strikes again.

But murder, however bizarre, is an everyday affair for Lily, who was a homicide cop before being recruited into the FBI’s Magical Crimes Division. A more personal shock arrives in the person of Rule’s son’s mother. Why is she challenging Rule’s long standing plan to bring his son to live among the Nokolai?

But family must take a back seat when the violence escalates, and there’s no rhyme or reason for the killer’s next strike—a killer who may not even be of this world…

I love the covers for both of these books! So primal! At this point, I just have no excuse for only being on book one for both series. So many books, so little time. Can't wait to see what goodies everyone else has selected.

Roadkill is the fifth book in Rob Thurman's wonderful series, Cal Leandros. The first book is Nightlife, and I LOVE IT!!!! Waiting for the second book in the series was torture, but before I read it I thought, “Then I have to wait like this for each additional book.” So to help with the pain of waiting I decided I would collect the books as they came out. Then on book five I would finally binge read!! Too, much info? But you asked and I have to share. This book release has been killing me!! Check it out, I love Rob Thurman's books, she is one heck of a writer. The world she has created is sooooo good, and defiantly unique!

Ahem. Thank you for the award, I was wondering how these worked. It's so great to know other people enjoy my blog!! Thank you.
