Cold-Hearted Rake

New Series????

by Lisa Kleypas

10 . 27 . 2015

From GoodReads: 

A twist of fate…

Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.

A clash of wills…

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?

 

Why I am waiting…

If this new series is anywhere near as good as the last few series Kleypas wrote — than I have a whole new list of books to add to my can’t wait to read pile!  Kleypas has some sassy heroines –they always make for great reading.  I tore through her other series and look forward to starting this one!

Closer to The Heart

Herald Spy #2

by Mercedes Lackey

10 . 06 . 2015

From GoodReads: 

Mags was a Herald of Valdemar. But he had once lived the brutal life of a child slave. When he was Chosen by his Companion Dallen, his young life was saved, and he slowly adjusted to being well fed, educated, and treasured as a trainee in the Herald’s Collegium at Haven. Singled out by the King’s Own Herald, Mags would thrive in his secret training as a spy. His unusually strong Gift—an ability to Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were Gifted—made him a perfect undercover agent for the king.

Sequel to Mercedes Lackey’s Closer to Home, this adventure continues Mags’s journey as Valdemar’s herald spy.

 

Why I am waiting…

Mercedes Lackey is one of my favorite authors.  I’ve reread her books so many times I have lost count.  I love that she writes all of her novels in the same universe — I hate saying goodbye to beloved characters, and this way, I don’t need to! I really enjoy that each of her main characters have slightly different gifts.  Not all of them are incredibly powerful (like Vanyel, or Mags) some (like Karal and Skiff) are just talented, compassionate, and smart.  She includes as much politics  and intrigue as adventure.  Its a great series!  October can’t come soon enough!

Queen of Shadows

Throne of Glass #4

by Sarah J. Maas

From Goodreads: 

Sarah J. Maas’s New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series reaches new heights in this sweeping fourth volume.

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.

Celaena’s epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

 

Why I am waiting…

I have been craving a new book like this.  I haven’t found any new ones recently that I have enjoyed as much as this series.  I wanted to read a good fantasy like this enough that I reread all of the Tamora Pierce novels, the Graceling books, and Cadet of Tildor.  I was holding off rereading this series until #4 was closer to being released.  It still is not quite close enough.  Seriously though.  I am super excited for this book!
