My List: Tough chics who kick some butt -

Tangled Threads

Elemental Assassin Series

Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Expected publication: April 26th 2011

Goodreads Summary -

I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.

But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead. Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead

Kindling the Moon

Arcadia Bell Series

Mass Market Paperback, 352 pages

Goodreads Summary -

She's as tough as anything haunting Chicago's streets. But to deal with an inhuman power that won't stay buried, this FBI agent needs help that comes at an immortal price. . .

Jackie Rutledge has seen her share of supernatural killers. But her latest murder case is what recurring nightmares are made of. Brutally exsanguinated human victims, vanishing-into-the-ether evidence, and a city on the edge of panic mean that she and her psychic partner, Laurel, are going to need more than just backup . . .

So Jackie is fine with any help rugged P.I. Nick Anderson can give--even if that includes the impish ghost and sexy vampire who make up his team. But Nick is hiding secrets of his own. And Jackie's investigation has plunged them both into a vengeful game reaching back centuries--and up against a malevolent force hungry for more than just victory. . .

So, that's what's on my wishlist this week - what's on yours?


  1. I can't wait for "Tangled Threads" - the 4th Elemental Assassin audiobook!

    Also, it's coming out all the way in the future in June, but I can't wait for the release of "Kitty's Big Trouble."

  2. Oooh! I want all these books. They're all sound awesome. Thanks for following me! I'll be following right back! <3

  3. I recently got the first 3 books in the Elemental Assassin Series and cannot wait to read them. Hope you get to read all these soon :)

  4. These all look great. I have to admit, I'll read just about anything with a sexy woman in leather on the cover. Ha!


  5. Book Vixen, you are going to LOVE Gin Blanco! I think you'all are into regular texts, but if you do the audiobooks, the narrator's perfect with a vaguely southern accent.

  6. Here are ten more wishes. I add books to my list faster than I can either read them or blog about them!
