Release Day and Make-Up Monday

Happy Release Day to a lot of fabulous authors today!




I'm going to have to plan a trip to the book store this week! I'm also going to be running out to check the mail everyday. Don't you just love when you're waiting for something in the mail that isn't a bill? I'm like a kid waiting to go to the toy store. I ordered a signed copy of Lara Adrian's Taken by Midnight so am jumping up and down waiting for that to get here. 
I'm looking forward to Carlos', a panther shifter, story in Eat Prey Love. And seeing how his story develops with Caitlyn Whelan, Shanna's sister. It promises to be a humorous romantic read. And Torment especially since I was left with a lot of questions at the end of Fallen. Hopefully some of them will be answered. Bespelling Jane Austen is a compilation of four best selling authors that put a paranormal twist on Austen's work. I am looking forward to Colleen Gleason's Northanger Castle in that one. And The Heir of the Night looks to be a promising debut to Lowe's four book series. 



I read a great series over the weekend by Virginia Kantra, The Children of the Sea. If you are looking for a more adult version of The Little Mermaid look no further! 
The first book in the series is Sea WitchIt is about Margred, a selkie, who goes to shore for one night to slake her desires but finds herself unable to forget the passion and connection she found with the human male, Police Cheif Caleb Hunter. Caleb came back to World's End to find some peace and enjoy the simple island life in his small hometown. But after going out to investigate a routine call his quiet world is turned upside down by the dark and alluring Maggie and a murder investigation.  
A well told story that flows smoothly with captivating characters and a fantastical, but believable, world above and below the sea. 
The series continues with Sea Fever, Sea Lord and Immortal Sea with Forgotten Sea being released in June 2011. The first three books in the series follow the Hunter siblings while books 4 and 5 follow other popular, once secondary, characters from the series.



Forgot the mancandy for Beefcake Monday last week on our FB page so to make up for it I'll post it here as well. Hopefully you'll find it as delicious as I do. I do love me some tattoos.
