It’s Monday again and I found a new series…..

A weekly event hosted by Sheila - Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Books I completed last week are:

Leiland Dale - [Heart of the Mountain 2]- A Loving Hart

Kate Roman - Man and Wolf

Marie Rochelle - Beneath the Surface

T.A. Chase - Wishing for a Home

L.B. Gregg - Men Of Smithfield 04 - In And Out

Linda Lael Miller - [McKettricks of Texas 10] - Garrett

Dr Campbell’s Secret Son – Anne Fraser

Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman

 

This is the cover that made me look twice this week…

I have been off paranormal books for awhile now, and while I still have a look around the paranormal sites and love to see the cover works, I am not reading more than one or two a month.

I found this cover a few weeks ago and it’s the first of Marie Treanor – Awakened By Blood trilogy. Something about it  makes me perk up and added it to my list.. I am hoping I love this new series..

Blood on Silk, An Awakened by Blood Novel,
Marie Treanor

Release : September 7th - 2010

Publisher: NAL Signet Eclipse

Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is spending the summer in Romania researching historical superstitions for her PhD. While she is tracing local foktales, one subject in particular sparks her imagination. His name is Saloman, legend's most powerful vampire, a seductive prince staked centuries ago. Now, in the ruins of a castle crypt, Elizabeth discovers the legends are real. Her blood has awakened him. Her innocence has aroused him. But Elizabeth unleashes more than Saloman's hunger.
An army of vampire hunters has amassed to send Saloman back to hell. Sworn to help - yet fearing Saloman's deadly blood lust - Elizabeth seeks to entrap him, offering her body as bait. But something stronger than dread, more powerful than revenge, is uniting Elizabeth to her prey. Caught between desire and rage, Elizabeth must decide

where her loyalties lie...and what the limits are to a yearning she can no longer control.

Up next on the reading deck

Root of all evil – Mary  Eason

Cross the Line – Wendy Ely

Wow, that cover art for "Blood On Silk" is simply gorgeous and the story sounds equally enticing.

I just bought the T.A. Chase book. It might be my read for the night.

Smokinhotbooks on 8 June 2010 at 02:21 said...

I was eyeballing T.A. Chase - Wishing for a Home last week but I ended up buying Duncan's World instead.

Amanda on 8 June 2010 at 02:25 said...

Blood on Silk does look enticing - but I guess the cover's got 'come get me' written all over it! I will have to look out for it in September.

I like your blog header - is it where you live- like mine is?

Thanks for coming over and visiting Desert Book Chick, BTW. I appreciate it.

I enjoyed Neverwhere, both the book and the miniseries (book's better). I see by your side bar you're reading Like a Corset Undone. I've read the companion book Like Clockwork and enjoyed most of the stories. Enjoy your reading week.

Crystal (I totally paused!) on 8 June 2010 at 03:55 said...

Blood on Silk both sounds and looks good! I hope you like it when you get to it :)

Have a great week!

MarthaE on 8 June 2010 at 04:41 said...

Looks like you had a good week! How did you like Neverwhere? I have been wanting to read Gaiman.

Blood on Silk is a lovely (as in awesome, not sweet!) looking cover. Sounds interesting too. I'll be interested in your thoughts on it.

Have a good week!

You are right, that cover Blood on Silk is very alluring. I will have to go get that one. And the story does sound very interesting.
I hope all is well honey!
