In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. Though the overnight guests are few and far between - occasional hunters and lake fishermen - Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing. But Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate’s luck is about to run out.

One morning, the B&B’s only guest inexplicably vanishes, leaving behind his personal effects. A few days later Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man’s belongings. Fearing for her children’s lives, Cate agrees to cooperate - until Calvin saves the day, forcing the intruders to scatter into the surrounding woods.

The nightmare, however, is just beginning. Cate, Calvin, and their entire community find themselves cut off and alone with no means to call for help as the threat gathers intensity and first blood is drawn.

With their fellow residents trapped and the entire town held hostage, Cate and Calvin have no choice but to take the fight to their enemies under the cover of night. While reticent Cal becomes a fearless protector, Cate makes the most daring move of her life…into the very heart of danger.

Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires... yeah. Just another day in her life.

Then she gets talked into adopting a cat she's allergic to. Her first thought is to neuter the cat. But when he turns out to be a gorgeous shapeshifting man who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer she thinks: not so fast. Next thought: seek professional help.

Susan doesn't know what to believe, but as she's drawn into a paranormal world, she comes to realize that the story that could bring her credibility is too unbelievable to expose. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers, it's a matter of saving lives and souls, and her only ally is a man she's allergic to. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, it's always dangerous. But never more so than when one very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is...will she? Dark Side of the Moon is full of Sherrilyn Kenyon's trademark sexy humor and breathtaking imagination.

Book Description
A delightful new comedy about witches, vampires, and the search for the perfect man.

Recovering witch Garnet Lacey manages Wisconsin's premier occult bookstore. And a fringe benefit of the job is getting customers like Sebastian Von Traum-piercing brown eyes, a sexy accent, and a killer body. The only thing missing is an aura. Which means he's dead. And that means trouble.

So what's a girl to do if she's hot for a dead man walking? Run like hell-and take full advantage of the nights

Book Description
From the USA Today bestselling author, a vampire-meets-girl story set in the city that never sleeps-except during daylight.

He's a bloodsucking freak of nature. But, unlike other politicians, Ethan Carrick is actually a nice guy. Not to mention a very hot, wealthy, casino-owning vampire. It's an election year for vampires, which means he'll first have to escape his opponent's hit men. Then he'll have to find a suitable First Lady, preferably here in Vegas.

Brittany Baldizzi fits the bill. She's smart, pretty- and sweeter than a glass of diabetic O-Negative. But her protective sister Alexis steps in with a message for Ethan: Bite me. It's then that he realizes it's the sexy, no-nonsense Alexis who raises his stake. And as much as she denies it, Alexis wouldn't mind a romp in the coffin with him. But can a mere mortal, even one who risks her life for him, make a centuries-old, womanizing vampire feel something entirely new?

  1. Three of these, for me, are "must haves".

    This year is shaping up to be a banner year of extraordinary reading.

    You have great taste, Stacy~!
    again.


  2. Stacy--

    I have 4 of those books on my want list too and in fact have the Kennyon book per-ordered. It should ship soon after release.


  3. Chomping at the bit for DSOTM. Still waiting for Howards last one to come out in paperback. I love her but it's really hard for me to plunk down $30 for a book. They make more money with HC books, but it blows my budget. I may cave for the Dark-Hunter though.


  4. What a great list of wants !!!

    ....the novels sound excellent !!!

    I pre-ordered Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Dark Side of the Moon"...as well !!!

    Anything Ms. Kenyon writes...I read !!!

    ...and she's so nice...!!!!

    I couldn't make her book signing just recently in Burbank on April 1, but I called the store and asked if they would send me a signed book and next thing I know...

    Ms. Kenyon is on the phone and talking with me !!!

    I was so shocked...

    ...all I could do was just keep repeating...

    "I love your novels, they are so beautiful" !!!

    ..over and over...like a mantra...

    She's an Angel !!!

  5. Thanx ladies. I am just so amazed that I have people stopping by here - LOL. I'm so used to talking to myself, even in blogland.

    I'm still holding out on some of the books, especially in hardcover. But I love LH, so I'm kinda waivering.

    Hmm, Sunny, let me think. Do you like contemps or historicals? Personally, you can't go wrong with Erin McCarthy for sexy and funny books. Or Lucy Monroe's mercenary series (Ready, Willing, And Able - the trilogy) For historicals, I love Lisa Kleypas' books. Let me know some of your fave authors and I'll let you know.


  6. Stacy, you're very cool and your website is awesome !!!

    You shouldn't be amazed with everyone responding, at all !!!

    But Stacy...

    You're really testing me...

    I swear I'm going to lick the screen !!!

    Mr. Kamp is too fricken gorgeous !!!

    My control is weakening...and
    all my good-catholic-girl training is going right out the window !!!!

    Ok..with that vented...I feel slighty better...slighty...sorta...

    As far as book choices, if you can please help me out...

    (I wrote this on Michelle's blog):

    I love novels that are romantic, sensual and visually beautiful...

    ...something that appeals to my senses...a caress that touches my soul....

    ...so when I place the book away...

    ...not only the characters, but the images linger long in my mind....

    I love Emma Holly's short stories.

    They have a lovely exotic & sensual passion that is quite gorgeous and attractive to me.

    I also am a fan of Anais Nin, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan & Marguerite Duras.

    Do you have any favorites novels that you can recommend...

    ...historical, paranormal, erotica ???

    Thanks Again Stacy !!!

    Sunny
