I'm Trying!

Really, I am. This is my 2nd post in the last week. I think that's an improvement over a month, don't you? I'm going to try something a little different today. I'm going to do Part 2 of my e-book focus. There are so many wonderful e-books hanging out in e-book land that I don't think most people have even heard of. I feel it's my duty...nay, my obligation to bring these books to your attention. :)

Here are the books in no particular order (ah, who am I kidding? They're in alphabetical order):

Blade's Edge by Val Roberts (Samhain Publishing): It's a fantasy, sci-fi, futuristic hodgepodge of insanity. Great writing, fun action and a great storyline. I really, really enjoyed it.

Dare to Believe by Dana Marie Bell (Samhain Publishing): I love Ms. Bell's Halle Puma series and her book Very Much Alive, but this one's my favorite so far. It's her take on the Fae and it's a good one. This one is your standard m/f, but the next is a menage and I can't wait! It should be fabulous! :)

Hunting Season by Shelley Laurenston (Samhain Publishing): I first got into Ms. Laurenston with her Pack series. This is a totally different look at Gods and such. I really liked it. The sex is beyond smokin' hot, the interplay between the h/h is great as is the interplay between their 2 kinds. I won't go into anymore detail, but trust's lovely.

Pack Alpha & Pack Enforcer both by Crissy Smith (TotalE-Bound): These weren't too bad. The first one was rec'd by Tracy. I don't care for the website all that much, but the stories were pretty good.

Primal Hunger by Sydney Sommers (Samhain Publishing): An interesting look at Gargoyles, though I don't think her idea and my idea of gargoyles mesh. lol. Still, a hot story with a couple of interesting twists.

Silent Blade by Ilona Andrews (Samhain Publishing): It's Ilona. 'Nuff said.

And now for a couple of complaints. Here's the thing; I hate it when an author writes a great book with obvious sequel bait and either doesn't deliver OR there's such a long delay in waiting for the next book that you kind of lose interest. Case in point? Evangeline Anderson. I read her book Wishful Thinking when it first came out with Samhain. LOVED IT. Super sweet romance, sexy beyond belief and you know the other 2 sisters are going to/should get their own books. It's been almost 2 years since that book came out. I'm waiting, but not very patiently. What is up with that? :(

Anyhoodles, I hope I've brought your attention to some great books. I've got a lot on my plate right now, but am going to try to do much better in keeping up to date over here.

Also, don't forget that I'm giving away a book. It's in the previous entry. Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Thanks for the ebook recs!
I've been meaning to get Shelley Laurenston for a while.
The Dana Marie Bell also looks good. Will have to hop over to Samhain! :-)

Funny, I was just looking at that Halle Puma series this past week and thinking about buying it. Good to know you liked it.

Have you tried the Dragon Kin series by GA Aiken? She's the same author as Shelley Laurenston. If you liked the Pack series I think you'll like the Dragon series.

Oh I forgot about Pack Enforcer - I'll have to go get that one. Thanks for the reminder. :)

I haven't read Wishful Thinking - good, huh?
