I’ve read a ton of books this summer, but a few have stood out. Inez Kelley recently released a hilarious masterpiece. If you get a chance, download Turn It Up, but only if you are prepared to laugh! Another good laugh-out-loud book to get your hands on is Unbreakable Bond, co-authored by Gemma Halliday and Jennifer Fischetto. Gemma also has a huge backlist to choose from after you’re finished with that one. If you’re in the mood for something darker, I’d have to send you into the capable hands of Jennifer Leeland. Be warned, the writing is hot! Yes, just as hot as this weather. Wolf of Arundale is her latest release, but you can pretty much pull up her backlist, close your eyes, and point to pick a good read. I’ve read some other amazing books (Cassandra Curtis, Tru Night, Eden Bradley, Jax Cassidy, Kristen Painter…the list is truly long.), but I’d run out of room on this blog to name them all.
Of course, I would like to take a second and mention my own summer release. Secrets of the Sapphires is the first in a series based on a covert CIA group called the Paranormal Division. The agents in this unit are tasked at keeping all of us safe from everything that goes bump in the night. Here’s the cover blurb
Opposites do attract. Keeping them from killing each other is the real challenge. Nia Brooks entered the CIA to get to the bottom of her parents’ deaths. Joining the Paranormal Division, she learns to fend for herself after dealing with prejudice, not to mention the vampires and shifters. Paired with an egotistical agent, the bloodsuckers and hairy boys don’t seem so bad.
Garrett Van Deren has his own agenda behind joining the CIA. When his dead partner’s body disappears without a trace, Garrett knows the vampire underground is responsible and the Paranormal Division offers him answers. He slams head first into a roadblock when he meets his new partner. A hundred pounds soaking wet, he’ll be babysitting instead of tracking down the killer.
Tossed back in time by a mysterious white sapphire, two headstrong agents must learn to trust one another while they search for a way back to the Twenty-First Century and the people responsible for the rift in time.
Take a look and let me know what you think. Have a wonderful time with what’s left of this hot, hot, hot summer.
