Wednesday Wishes Happening on Thursday

My travels have not brought me to our destination yet, but the Super 8 that we decided to splurge on has wi/fi! So forgive my tardiness!

This post follows Book Chick City's weekly meme, My Wishlist.

Anywho, there are some great finds this week, not all of them have covers avalible yet.

Stolen

Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back? The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don't exist - almost.

Hunting Memories (Vampire Memories, #2) by Barb Hendee
The co-author of the bestselling Noble Dead novels continues her "exhilarating"(SF Revu) new vampire series.

Eleisha Clevon has begun a correspondence with fellow vampire Rose de Spenser. Both reluctant predators, they venture outside only when the hunger becomes unbearable, trying not to draw attention to themselves-and feel guilty when ending human lives.

She wants to share this knowledge with like-minded vampires and create a haven where they can exist together-and forge a united front against Julian Ashton, a vampire who has been hunting down and destroying his own kind...
Memories of Envy: A Vampire Memories Novel

Memories of Envy: A Vampire Memories Novel by Barb Hendee
For a vampire, killing is easy. She makes it fun...

A reluctant predator, Eleisha Clevon has made home for herself and other vampires like her in Portland. And, in spite of the risks, she is determined to locate all vampires still existing in isolation, so she might offer them sanctuary — and more importantly, so she can teach them to feed without killing.

To Eleisha's shock, she learns that a lost vampire may be living as close as Denver, Colorado... but she has to approach this one more carefully than ever before.

Simone Stratford is a beautiful, delicate-looking creature from the roaring twenties who enjoys playing elaborate games with mortals, stoking their passion for her before finally draining them of their blood.

When Eleisha and her protector, Philip Branté, go to Denver in search of Simone, what they find is far worse — and more seductive — than either one bargained for. Philip’s love for Eleisha and his ability to fit into her world are pushed to the breaking point, as is Eleisha’s fierce belief in her own mission.
