Face Off by Brenda Novak

Face-Off-500x791I’m reading this series and I love Brenda’s easy flowing writing style. I also had the great opportunity to have dinner with her at the St. Martin’s dinner in Denver at the Romance Writers of America’s party.


Tortured and left for dead at sixteen, Evelyn Talbot turned her personal nightmare into her life’s work―studying the disturbing psychopathy of some of the world’s most vicious serial killers. Now a leading psychiatrist at Hanover House in a small Alaskan town, she tries to believe the past will never come back to haunt her―until a woman goes missing from a cabin nearby, and every clue points to the man who once brutalized her…

As her boyfriend, who is the area’s only police, begins to investigate―and finds not one but two bodies―Evelyn can’t forget that her would-be killer, Jasper Moore, was never caught. But there are no new faces in tiny Hilltop, no one who seems suspicious or potentially violent. In this twisted game of cat and mouse, Evelyn is certain of only one thing―Jasper must be hiding in plain sight. And if she can’t find him before he comes for her, she won’t be lucky enough to survive twice…

Tough Luck Cowboy by A. J. Pine

Cowboy0Now y’all know I have a thing for cowboys, so this book was the perfect read for me. Luke and Lily are adorable together! It’s also releasing today.

From this “fabulous storyteller” (Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author) comes a sweet western romance between a rodeo cowboy and his best friend’s ex-wife. 

What’s the saying, bad luck comes in threes? If so, Lily Green is due for something good. First, her divorce is finalized—on her birthday, no less. Then the first job she lands for her catering company turns out to be for her ex-husband’s wedding. To top it off, she’s stuck working the event with Luke Everett, the sexy-as-hell best man who’s never been able to stand her. When can a girl catch a break?

For years, Luke has kept his feelings for Lily safely hidden. Hitting on his best friend’s ex-wife would definitely break the cowboy code of honor. But ever since an injury sidelined his rodeo riding, the two of them keep getting thrown together. It’s only a matter of time until his true feelings come to light. When that happens, it will either be the biggest mistake of his life, or a sign that his luck is about to change.

“Pine makes it easy to care about the Everett brothers and the women they love.”–Publishers Weekly

Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter by Katie MacAlister

DragonLooking for an adventure with a hot dragon hunter and a novice hunter that has no clue what she’s doing? You’ll be laughing out loud and sighing over Ian Iskander. It releases today as well.

Dragon Hunter Wanted: Sword supplied. No experience necessary.

One moment, I was a normal (if somewhat germaphobic) math teacher getting ready for summer vacation. Then my sister died in a pile of black ash, leaving me with a sword… and her destiny as dragon hunter. It turns out there’s a whole other world out there filled with demons, dragons, and spirits. Now my job is to protect mortals – and I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing.

Then there’s tattooed hotness Ian Iskander. Part dragon hunter and part demon, Ian’s got some seriously creepy business associates and keeps trying to steal my sword. So why do we keep getting lost in hungry, crazy-hot kisses? Ian is the only person who can help me figure out who – and what – I am. But trusting a half-demon is dangerous… because when you play with dragon fire, someone always gets burned.

“Bursting with the author’s trademark zany humor and spicy romance… this quick tale will delight paranormal romance fans.”–Publishers Weekly

  1. Christie, I can’t see anything objectionable. I like the trailer. Makes me want to read it. The audiobook DON’T CLOSE YOUR EYES is next on my list.

  2. I have no idea why fb would mark that as inappropriate. Cray fb! I like the trailer and I loved the book!! It was a “can’t put down” book for sure. A friend and I were just talking about Brenda Novak’s book, Face Off. She’s a head of me and in on the book before this one. I haven’t got past the first one yet but they are on my wish list! lol

  3. This is so nice of you the books all sound so unique and interesting I want to read them all. Face Off is one I need I read the first three books leading to this one. I’m interested in all of them. Thank you for the chance.
