Weekend Reading

Avon Romance has sent me so much awesomeness in my Avon Addicts packages, and I'm finally finding time to really dig in. 

I'm getting ready to start a new-to-me author that I've wanted to try out for a few years now, and just never got around to it. This weekend I'm going to read Ilona Andrews, as I begin the first book in their Hidden Legacy series, BURN FOR ME.


I'm so excited to read this book! Not only because I've heard so much fantastic praise for the husband and wife writing duo, but also because I love discovering a new author to glom onto.

Cover Reveal: FURIOUS FIRE: Grimm's Circle # 8 by Shiloh Walker

Coming November 2014
The Grimm are coming to an end…the second to last book

He is the love of all her lives…

FURIOUS FIRE: Grimm’s Circle, Book 8
Thomas Finn, troublemaker, gunslinger, guardian angel…loner. More than a hundred and fifty years ago, he was shot in the back then brought back to life just in time to watch a demon masquerading as his best friend kill the love of his life.
Now, as a Grimm, he satisfies his need for vengeance hunting down demons like the ones that took Rebecca from him. His mission: kill as many as he can, then, when the time comes, go down in a blaze of glory. But with each kill, he comes closer to a line no angel should cross.
Her name was Rebecca. Then it was Tilly. Then Ada. Now, Kallypso. She’s lived so many lives, she can’t even remember when or why it started. All she knows is, she’s always searching for a man with golden eyes that make her burn. And when she finds him—as she always does—she knows that spark of joy means she’s only seconds away from death…again.
This time will be no different…unless something breaks the cycle once and for all.
Warning: Contains the Groundhog Day of star-crossed lovers, a pissed-off guardian angel, a demon-hunter with an axe to grind, and the battle to end all battles. Be warned…there’s pain ahead in this book. Oh, and that HEA finally happens. For these two, anyway.
This will be the second to the last in the Grimm series…make sure you read it…want to see how it all comes down…
