    Sometimes a secret goes to the grave. Sometimes Secret puts you there.

    It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancĂ© Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out.

    After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps?

    Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies.

    Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests.

    Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.

     

     
    My Teaser: (Set up: Secret McQueen is on the phone with Bri, her vampire friend, and asking her to come over.)
    "Things are a bit weird."
    "Did you kill Lucas?"
    "I... What?"
    "Like, do I need to bring clothes I can get blood on? Or a shovel or something? I was watching Breaking Bad with Nolan, and you shouldn't try to dissolve him in the bathtub because that'll like, melt the tub or something. But it's gross, so don't do that."


    Sierra Dean does some of the funniest and wittiest dialog I know of. If you like urban fantasy with snarky heroines, these books are awesome!

    While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe.

    What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people.


    My Teaser
    I didn't want to feel angry or cheated or tricked, but I did. I spent the rest of the long flight mourning the loss of the boy I'd foolishly allowed myself to envision for years on end. By the time we arrived in Ireland I'd said good-bye to the dream, and let him go. It was time to move on and face reality. Life was too short to wallow.
    To short. Ugh.

    Our heroine has just found out she's engaged to a wee man, a Leprechaun. Yes, that's correct, a Leprechaun. And I absolutely adored this book, like I do all Wendy Higgins' books. It's a great price, so if you're looking for a fun paranormal young adult, this is a great choice.

Or will she turn away the one man who owns her heart and soul?

    Her secret will change his life.

    Powerful, and lethal, Kal is a vampire warrior, sworn to protect humans from demons. Loving Katherine too much to pull her into his dangerous world, Kal deserted her, believing his decision was best for them both. But not even time could assuage his yearning for the woman who has captured his heart. As fate tosses them together once again, Kal must fight to win Katherine’s trust and forgiveness before evil separates them forever. But is he ready to become the man she needs him to be? Or will he lose the one woman he can’t live without?

     
    My Teaser
    His taste, his scent, the feel of his hard body pressed against hers, tossed her around on the sea of desire. And she welcomed it. Ten years was far too long to abstain from sex. And she sorely needed more than the empty orgasms she gave herself.

    Brenda Dyer writes sexy-as-hell love scenes, so if you enjoyed that teaser, be sure to check out The Prophecy Series.

    An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

    Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.

    The Rosie Project is a moving and hilarious novel for anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of overwhelming challenges.

     

    My Teaser
       "The city lights. The view's amazing."
       "Unfortunately it's static. Once you've examined it, there's no reason to look again. Like paintings."
       "But it changes all the time. What about in the early morning? Or when it rains? What about coming up here just to sit?"
       I had no answer that was likely to satisfy her. I had seen the view when I bought the apartment. It did not change much in different conditions. And the only times I just sat were when I was waiting for an appointment or if I was reflecting on a problem, in which case interesting surroundings would be a distraction.
     

    This novel is unlike anything I've ever read before. Imagine a book in the point-of-view of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. That's what it's like reading this. And I loved every minute of it.
