Books I Want

These two books are in my to read pile….they were just released!

Any of you going to read these?

Immortal Enforcer Valerian just wants to relax. His last assignment had been more grueling than he’d care to admit, and golf has always helped him unwind. If golf course owner Natalie thinks it’s a little odd for him to tee off at sunset every evening, she’s keeping it to herself. The single mom is sexy as hell, and her little daughter Mia only adds to his delight. He knows Natalie is wary of a relationship of any kind…what will she think when she discovers he’s an Immortal? His best course of action is to woo her the old-fashioned way.

But the course of true love never did run smooth—especially for a vampire and a mortal. And when danger stalks Natalie, Valerian realizes he’s playing a game of life and death and if he loses this round, he risks losing her forever.

Two curses.
One prophecy.
A reckoning all have feared.
And a love more powerful than fate. All hail the king and queen of Hell.
Emilia is reeling from a shocking discovery about her sister, Vittoria. But before she faces the demons of her past, Emilia yearns to claim her king, the seductive Prince of Wrath, in the flesh. She doesn’t just desire his body; she wants his heart and soul—but that’s something the enigmatic demon can’t promise her.
When a high-ranking member of House Greed is assassinated, damning evidence somehow points to Vittoria as the murderer. Now, Emilia will do anything to get to the bottom of these accusations against the sister she thought she knew.
Together, Emilia and Wrath play a sin-fueled game of deception to solve the murder and stop the unrest that’s brewing between witches, demons, shape-shifters, and the most treacherous foes of all: the Feared. Emilia was warned that when it came to the Wicked, nothing was as it seemed. But have the true villains been much closer all along?

Okay I know I’m slacking on blogging and even my reading mojo has been messed up. A thing called stress is what I have been battling with. Stress is not fun. I think I’m getting back to normal so that’s good, right? One day at a time.

Reading status…..engage!

I am almost done with this book. Why didn’t I read these series earlier in life? I cannot put them down it is that good. I am sooooo going go finish this book this weekend and then the next one! Anyone else read these?

I just started this book, so far so good.
Retelling of a fairytale.

I will also dive into this one too!
I have read her previous books and can’t wait to see how this one goes.

Long time coming…

I know I have not updated this blog in a while..

Life has been a tad busy with work and being a mom!   I am trying to get back in the saddle to blog more about books!  Since it is October I decided to tell you that I have completed reading the entire set of Kerri Maniscalo  gothic series!   Well the last book of this series called “Capturing the Devil.”

I finished the book a few days ago and the whole story still lingers in my head.  I want more from Kerri!  Hopefully whatever she writes next will be fantastic!

Anyways, “Capturing the Devil”  had a few twists and turns.  I am not giving it all away because there may be other people out there reading!   I was not expecting for Kerri to take me down that path of being surprised and having those “aww” moments.  The one “aww” moment was during my lunch break at work so it had to be an internal quiet “aww” moment in my head.    A few other moments were late at night after the kids had fallen asleep.  I grabbed the book and read some more  of the story where I just craved the storyline.  The other moment I had was “Why is this happening to her??  Why?”    Kerri did not disappoint with an amazing storyline, fantastic characters and of course the stunning book cover!    I am going to treasure these books for a long time.

So if you like dark, horror storyline with snarky comments and flying sparks, then you want to pick these up today.
First book:  Stalking Jack the Ripper
Second book: Hunting Prince Dracula
Third book: Escaping from Houdini
Fourth book: Capturing the Devil
