June 2009

KISSING MIDNIGHT, Emma Holly A new book by Emma Holly is always a luscious treat, and KISSING MIDNIGHT is the fabulous start to a new trilogy that will be published in consecutive months. Featuring a unique setting (1930′s England) and the return of Emma’s vampire creation, the upyr, KISSING MIDNIGHT has it all–terrific characters, compelling plot and white hot sensuality as only Emma can write it. Plus, it has a killer ending that will make reading the next book, BREAKING MIDNIGHT, a must. It’s a good thing then that readers only have to wait to July for BREAKING MIDNIGHT and August for SAVING MIDNIGHT!

ATLANTIS UNLEASHED, Alyssa Day I fell in love with Alyssa’s Warriors of Poseidon’s with her first two books, and I know I’m not the only one who’s been chomping at the bit for more books. The wait is finally over, and in a big way–ATLANTIS UNLEASHED is out in June, and ATLANTIS UNMASKED will be out in July. And boy, is it worth the wait–ATLANTIS UNLEASHED packs a wallop emotionally with the story of Justice, who is as damaged and tortured a hero as you can imagine. How he finds love and healing with Keely is something you won’t want to miss. Add heart-stopping action, memorable secondary characters and plot twists galore, and you have a recipe for an unforgettable read.

July 2009

BRANDED BY FIRE, Nalini Singh Who hasn’t been impatiently awaiting Nalini’s new Psy-Changeling novel? And it’s also the first time the focus is on two changelings. Mercy and Riley have been striking sparks off each other and generally stealing each scene from their first appearance, and boy, the sexual tension between these two characters is unbelievable. This is one romance you need to read with the air conditioning cranked up to maximum!

SAPPHIRE DREAMS, Pamela Montgomerie One of the joys of being an editor is discovering new voices, and Pamela Montgomerie is one of those voices you won’t soon forget. For readers who love time travel as well as pirates, this is the book for you. When Brenna Cameron returns to Castle Stour on the coast of Scotland seeking answers about her past, she can’t imagine that she’ll be transported to a seventeenth-century pirate ship and a crew of dangerous scallywags who haven’t seen a woman in far too long. Nor could she have dreamed of her desires for the captain who comes to her rescue…

August 2009

SHOOT TO THRILL, Nina Bruhns Nina Bruhns has been delighting category romance fans for years. Now, romantic suspense fans can enjoy for themselves the thrill ride Nina has crafted. The first in a new trilogy about black ops operatives, SHOOT TO THRILL is a sexy, edgy roller-coaster of a book. A disillusioned black-ops hero is kidnapped by his ruthless former employers and forced to go on a suicide mission back to the scene of his worst betrayal-but an innocent woman is caught in the trap and sent with him, forcing him to choose: her life, or his vengeance.

HAUNTING BEAUTY, Erin Quinn Erin Quinn is another new author, and the title of her book, HAUNTING BEAUTY, is a perfect description of her novel–her writing will haunt you with it’s beauty long after you finish. A mystical, magical tale that’s both contemporary and yet timeless, the book has all the magic of it’s Irish setting and traditions combined with a fresh, original plot. Danni Jones believed everything about her past-that she was an unwanted child abandoned by her mother. That she was an outcast set apart by her clairvoyance. That she was alone. Then came the stranger. Dangerously seductive Sean Ballagh appears out of nowhere with a startling story that will challenge everything Danni thought was true.

He claims that Danni’s family has been searching for her ever since she disappeared twenty years ago. He’s come to bring her home to Ireland. But Danni fears there’s more to his story than he dares to reveal. And the only way to find out is by following Sean back in time, to a forgotten past, to a world where nothing is what it seems.

    I’m absolutely so excited about the new Harmony book by Jayne Castle and some more dust bunnies! I’m also looking forward to the last of the Drake sister’s book by Christine Feehan. Oh course, I’m excited about the new Singh as well! Love the changelings.

    However, my top two would be the Castle and Feehan.

  2. Nadia
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 00:53:05

    The book I want now is KISSING MIDNIGHT by Emma Holly. The one I’m most excited about is HAUNTING BEAUTY by Erin Quinn. Sounds very intriguing & I love discovering new authors.

  3. HeatherK
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 01:33:06

    Oh, I’m so excited about the upcoming release of Christine Feehan’s Hidden Currents, even if I am a bit sad over it, too, since it’s the last int he series. And out of all the covers, I must say that the one for the Nalini Singh book really stands out.

    Having to only pick two, I’ll have to go with Christine Feehan and the awesome looking Nalini Singh book. Can’t wait for the new releases to be out.

  4. NaomiD
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 01:50:14

    Ooh, choices! Difficult to pick, as always.

    However, the book I want now is most definitely Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I’m addicted to her Psy/Changeling series. The book I’m probably most excited about is the new Jayne Castle release, Obsidian Prey.

  5. Carol
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 01:58:17

    Two books I really want are Nalini Singh Branded by Fire…love the excerpt and can’t wait to get my hands on this one. The second one is Elizabeth Thornton, The Scot and I.

    The one I’m most looking forward to in August is Emma Holly’s Saving Midnight, cannot wait to start this series!!!

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 02:47:40

    Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day! Can't wait!

    And then there’s the anticipation while waiting for the next psy/changeling book, BRANDED BY FIRE by Nalini Singh, which has been an excruciating wait but from the excerpt, and with most books by Nalini, the wait is always worth it!!! It is eagerly awaited and will be highly celebrated and each time I swear I will savor the read, but I always end up devouring her books in one sitting! So, yeah, I'd have to say Branded by Fire is the book I am most excited book!!! ;-)

  11. Eva S
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 02:56:11

    Right now I want Branded by Fire and The Scot and I.

    The book I’m most excited about in August is Bengal’s Heart. I love Lora Leigh’s Breeds!

  13. Willa
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 03:06:17

    Ooh – Branded By Fire by Nalini Singh and Alyssa Day’s Atlantis Unmasked, both titles I can’t wait to get my hot sticky mitts on . . . along with everyone else *grin*

    And Erin Quinn’s Haunting Beauty intrigues me . . . August release.

  14. catie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 03:19:17

    I’m so looking forward to BRANDED BY FIRE (already pre-ordered my copy), WITCH FURY, DEMON’S MISTRESS, TOUCHED BY LIGHT, KISS & HELL, SHOOT TO THRILL, HAUNTING BEAUTY, COLONEL BRANDON’S DIARY, and BEYOND THE RAIN.

    The one I’d take right now? Hmmm…toss up between COLONEL BRANDON’S DIARY and SHOOT TO THRILL, but S.T.T. would win because I’m more likely to buy the former first. :)

  15. ms bookjunkie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 03:49:57

    Should I win, I’ll take Obsidian Prey and Atlantis Unmasked. Or whatever you want to send me.

    The book I’ve been anticipating since last August is Obsidian Prey. Can’t wait!

  16. maered
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 03:58:00

    Right now, I would love Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh (immensely popular, I know) and Dirty, Sexy Knitting by Chritie Ridgway. Branded by Fire just sounds amazing.

    And I am most excited about the release of Must Love Hellhounds, an anthology with some of my favourite authors – Singh, Brooks, Andrews.

  17. Kathy426
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:00:00

    The books I most want now are Branded by Fire and Hidden Currents with Branded by Fire as being the most desired. I’m also looking forward to Bengal Heart.

  18. adh
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:20:57

    So hard to decide! I’d say the books I’d most like to have are Branded By Fire, Atlantis Unleased, and Haunting Beauty.

    But the books I’m most looking forward to include Nalini Singh’s new one, Lora Leigh’s Bengal’s Heart, and Emma Holly’s trilogy. Just can’t wait for these!!

  19. Chez
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:31:14

    I would have to jump on the Nalini Singh and Christine Feehan wagon as numbers 1 and 2. Changelings and witchies, what’s not to like.

    Certainly also looking forward to the Emma Holly trilogy, new Alyssa Day paranormals and the next biggie for me would be Lora Leigh’s Bengal’s Heart.

  20. Katharina
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:33:27

    I should be thrilled by the new Grange release as I adore everything Jane Austen, but I discovered long ago that don’t do fan fic, oh but the covers *sigh*. The two books I would like to have most from this list are Barbara Bretton’s Laced with Magic and Nina Bruhn’s Shoot to Thrill (I really like her category titles). The book I am most looking forward? Hmm, difficult choice, probably the new Emma Holly :-)

  21. Tiffany
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:37:23

    Two book crack extraordinaire writers: Emma Holly (I’ve been counting down to this release, it’s been so long since she had a release) and… Lora Leigh, I’m so addicted to her breed books. Bengal’s Heart is going to be awesome!

  22. Chivone
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:46:46

    Two books that I am eagerly awaiting are Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh. Each year so many great books come out between June and October. These are so popular I’d also like to add myself to the Hidden Currents list! I sould go on, but I’m at work. Hee!

  23. Cheryl McInnis
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:54:43

    There are so many great books releasing this fall, it’s hard to say which one I’m most excited for. I guess I’d say Hot For The Holidays, the anthology out in September-what a line up of authors! The two books pictured here I’d like to win are
    Atlantis Unmasked and Undead and Unwelcome.

  24. Cassie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:56:12

    The books I am most looking forward to are Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh, and the new Midnight series from Emma Holly. Ohhh, to have any of those in my hot little hands…that would be grand :)

  25. Leslee
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 04:58:05

    The two books that I would love to get is of course Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton.

    I adore the Psy/Changling series but if I had to choose I would say that I am really excited byt Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton. I loved Casting Spells and so I would love to see what is happening with all the characters! The only problem is I wanted desperately to knit something after reading it and I don’t know how!!!

  26. Sarah Beth
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:01:36

    For me it would be Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and The second one is Elizabeth Thornton, The Scot and I for the two that I would most like to have and the book that I am looking forward to be released in Aug/Sep/Oct is Emma Holly's Saving Midnight!!

  27. Lou
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:05:58

    The two books I would like now are:

    The Scot and I by Elizabeth Thornton
    Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day

    I would have to admit, Haunting Beauty has caught my eye for the August release. :)

  28. Tina
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:15:30

    Two books I would love to have are BRANDED BY FIRE and ATLANTIS UNLEASHED… (I’m having dreams about Riley and Justice!) My most eagerly anticipated book? Hmmm…so far, only HAUNTING BEAUTY sounds interesting. I’ll have to preorder it soon.

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:28:35

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:46:55

    Nice contest. Not sure I am doing this right.

    The 2 I would like are Dirty Sexy Knitting and Undead and Unwelcome.

    As for the arcs for Aug Sept and Oct I could only find 2 listed – where would I find more? So I would choose for the arcs AS they do look good – Seduced to Thrill and Haunting Beauty.

    Do I list both sets of choice here in this post?

    Thanks.

  33. Keri M
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:48:20

  34. Kristen
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:51:30

  35. Heike M
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 05:54:17

    I can’t wait for Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh – I’m addicted to the series, so this is definitely one of the books I want now, the other is Colonel Brandon’s Diary by Amanda Grange.

    The August/September/October Berkley Jove book I’m most excited about is – again – Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh.

  38. Sally
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 06:10:26

    Wow! So many good books that it is hard to choose. I’m really looking forward to Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. Love is a Four Legged Word by Kandy Shepard looks interesting. I like discovering new authors.

  39. JenniferMc
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 06:13:05

    Wow, that’s really heavy stuff you’re giving away here! I can’t choose, I want them all (in whining voice)!
    Ok, if I really have to choose 2, I’d pick Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan.
    I also look forward to reading Bengal’s Heart, the next book in Lora Leigh’s Breed Series.
    For all the authors, I just want to thank you for the amazing books you’re writing and ask you to keep doing it!

  42. Jewls
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 06:18:05

    (Second comment on who and what to read) — With thinking of these as being ARCs and trying authors new to me and not just reading those I already enjoy (even if it would mean reading one of them earlier!), but anyhoo, I'd like the sounds of Haunting Beauty by Erin Quin as a new author to try… and Love is a four-legged word by Kandy Shepherd sounds a lot of fun too!

  43. Tabitha
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 06:18:12

    The two books I want now are Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Kissing Midnight by Emma Holly.

    The book I am most excited about to be released in August is Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh.

    I am really excited about Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh coming out in July, I've read all of the Psy-Changelings books so far, and really enjoy this series. Branded by Fire is going to be awesome!!! Also anticipating Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh, I just started this series and I don't know why I took so long to start reading it.

  46. Missy Ann
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 06:21:10

    I’m extremely excited about Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day (I’ve already gotten Atlantis Unleashed!) and Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh right now; I’ve been waiting for those books for so long!

    I’m very intrigued by the synopsis for Shoot to Thrill so that’s the August/September/October book I’m most looking forward to.

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:03:53

    I’m so happy about the newest Harmony book Obsidian Prey by Jayne Castle and
    Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh.

    And who knew? I obviously buy a lot from the Berkley/Jove line. They have Shiloh and Nora and Lora Leigh and a whole boat load of my fav authors. huh. I didn’t know I was purchasing from a certain publisher so it probably doesn’t count as a suck-up.

    Want, want, want: Finally another Alpha & Omega story from Patricia Briggs: Hunting Ground.

    Thanks so much for the contest!

  55. Lisa J
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:11:01

    Nalini Singh’s Branded by Fire is tops on the list of books I want now. Mercy’s story looks awesome.

    Alyssa Day’s Warriors of Poseidon series is also great and I am looking forward to Emma Holly’s Upyr series continuing.

    After that, I’m anxiously awaiting “Must Love Hellhounds” with stories by Ilona Andrews (:D), Nalini Singh (YAY!), Charlaine Harris, and Meljean Brook.

    Thanks for the contest!

  58. Lori
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:22:56

    Obsidian Prey … oh yay!! I adore Jayne Castle and this series. Sapphire Dreams sounds fabulous. I’m suddenly aware however that I’m most interested with those mentioning gemstones.

    A girl in Seattle named Lori
    Was looking for a brand new story
    Named after gems
    She said “please thems”
    The plot sounds hot and won’t bore me.

    (Lousy limerick but Sapphire Dreams looks delish and I love new authors. I’m excited!)

  59. Prue
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:23:39

    I would love love love Alyssa Day’s Atlantis Unmasked and Bengal’s heart by Lora Leigh.

  64. Holly
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:30:38

    Narrowing it down to two – that’s hard…

    I’m I would have to say Undead and Unwed by Mary Janice Davidson and Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan simply because I want to know what happens next, but The Scot and I by Elizabeth Thornton (as well as several others) also caught my eye.

  65. Ashley V
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:43:09

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 07:49:33

    Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn would be wonderful to read this summer. The other one would be Love is a Four legged Word. Most looking forward to is Bunco Babes. Thanks for this great giveaway.

    Now, I definitely want BRANDED BY FIRE. So badly. It looks fantastic.

    And the cover of Haunting Beauty looks so beautiful I’m willing to give it a try.

    Thanks Berkeley/Jove!

    Emma Holly. WANT. WANT. WANT.

    And joanne’s comment tipped me off — if there’ s new Patricia Briggs book coming out I definitely want it!

  73. Bonnie Ferguson
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 08:04:47

    My picks would be Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day and Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh.

    And for the August, September, October release I’m looking forward to, the Must Love Hellhounds anthology (Sept. 2009) really intrigues me.

    Two books I want: I’d like to try some new to me authors

    1.Undead and Unwelcome by Mary Janice Davidson

    2.Laced With Magic by Barbara Bretton

    The one I’m most looking forward to- Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh

  75. Kym
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 08:17:54

    I’m most interested in Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh, bc I’m addicted to her Psy Changeling novels, and Kissing Midnight by Emma Holly, since I’ve never read her, but heard good things. I’m most excited about Branded by Fire, I’ve been waiting forever for Mercy’s book.

  76. Jo
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 08:23:48

    Oh yeah..bring it on. Summer by the pool or breach with a fab book, nice cocktail and perhaps even a cabana boy to take care of my every need… oh wait, that was the book, not reality! Oh well.

    I’m really excited about KISSING MIDNIGHT by Emma Holly. Vampires (my fav supernatural creatures) England (home) and 1930′s…super sexy! And Emma Holly’s work enthralls me…perfect for a summer read :O)

  77. Kris
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 08:31:04

    The two books I want now are Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh (Just. Cannot. Wait.) and Hidden Current by Christine Feehan. The one I’m most looking forward to in August/Septemer/October is Bengal’s Hear by Lora Leigh.

    It’s so hard to choose 2! I’d love to get a hold of Singh’s Branded by Fire (love this series) as well as Castle’s Obsidian Prey. I’d also love to get a copy of Leigh’s Bengal’s Heart and Feehan’s Hidden Currents. I can’t wait to pick up Briggs’ Hunting Ground in August. I’m looking forward to seeing how this series works out.

  83. Shannon McKelden
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 08:54:31

    Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh, hands down! Also Bunco Babes Tell All by Maria Geraci looks like great fun!

    Looking forward to Must Love Hellhounds also. Great line up of writers!

  84. Susan G
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 09:04:43

    The right now titles for me would have to be ATLANTIS UNLEASHED because I have been hearing a bit of positive buzz about it and SAPPHIRE DREAMS by Pamela Montgomerie because – time travel and pirates? Sign me up!! The future release I am intrigued by is HAUNTING BEAUTY by Erin Quinn. That sounds right up my alley, reading-wise.

    Thanks!

  85. liz...
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 09:05:22

  86. May B.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 09:05:29

    The book I want now is definitely Branded by fire by Nalini Singh. I can’t wait for the next installment in the most captivating paranormal series I’d ever read. I really want to know what more is going to happen.

    The book I’m most exciting about is Shoot to thrill by Nina Bruhns. I read Ms. Bruhns’ category for year and look forward to her venture into single title.

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 09:52:28

    Branded By Fire by Nalini Singh. My book group made me glom her last year and I ran out of books way too fast. Wish she would write faster. The heroine in this sounds totally alpha which ROCKS. :)

    The Kandy Shepherd book looks interesting too. Love is a Four Letter word. New author, new voice, awesome.

    Looking forward to Alyssa Days, new book and Christine Feehans.

    Thanks.

    I am most excited about BRANDED BY FIRE by Nalini Singh, but I’m also really looking forward to DIRTY SEXY KNITTING by Christie Ridgway. Of the books not listed above, I’m probably most looking forward to Darkness Calls by Marjorie Liu (but I can’t remember if that comes out in summer or fall).

  99. flip
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 10:06:19

But right NOW – how about Erin Quinn’s book, Haunting Beauty – doesn’t that write-up look good? Gonna have to settle in with that one!

  103. azteclady

  104. Shinigamioni
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 10:36:30

    Hi Jane!

    Thanks for making this give away contest. As to my answer, the book that I most want right now is Jayne Castle’s “Obsidian Prey“. The reason I want this book is that Jayne Anne Krentz does not often write as Jayne Castle, and as such her works as Jayne Castle is much sought after.

    I first encountered her in her story “After Dark”, which in my opinion one of the best original futuristic/paranormal romances ever written. Since then I’ve tried to look for her work in second hand bookstores, but no such luck. Don’t get me wrong I’ve seen her books in major bookstores but it cost way beyond my means. (To be honest, I like looking for books I like rather than getting it straight form the store, besides it cost half it’s original price. : ))

    The other book I want to have right now would be either one the Emma Holly’s books;”Breaking Midnight” or “Saving Midnight“. To be honest I can’t decide which of the 2 I want most since I’ve already read her book “Courting Midnight” and from this I can tell that her stories are a worth while read.

    Finally the book that I am most excited to be realease is my 1st choice Jayne Castle’s “Obsidian Prey“.

    I know you only asked for a simple reply but I couldn’t resist putting my 2 cents in. Anyway, thanks again for making this wonderful give away and I wish you luck on choosing the winner. I hope to hear from you.

    Lots of love,
    Shinigamioni

  105. Jenny Schwartzberg
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 10:37:27

    The books I want right now are Branded by Fire and Atlantis Unleashed. I’m really looking forward to the new Jayne Castle, and I know I will get so many of the other books, Lora Leigh, Nora Roberts and probably Emma Holly, etc. etc. The book I’m most excited about is Branded by Fire. Sigh……

  106. Michelle (MG) Braden
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 10:38:37

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:00:29

    The book I want now is Branded by Fire.

    I am most anxious for Bengal’s Heart. Who doesn’t read the Breeds?

  116. SonomaLass
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:14:37

    The book I want NOW is Colonel Brandon’s Diary by Amanda Grange. Sapphire Dreams looks good, too, so I’ll say that second.

    As for later releases, the only one I know that I’m excited about is Erin Quinn’s Haunting Beauty in August. The fantasy elements look wonderful.

    Great contest, Jane! Thanks.

  117. Has
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:15:01

    I am really really looking forward to Branded by Fire and Atlantis Unmasked. I am so happy that we will be getting two Atlantis books this year and makes up for the delay of Atlantis Unleashed.
    However I would like to choose Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn and Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger as those would be the books I would pick up as they have perked my interest especially Beyond the Rain!

  118. Elise
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:21:42

    The book I want most right now is Branded by Fire… yay Mercy and Riley! Haunting Beauty also looks really interesting. I’m really looking forward to Must Love Hellhounds in Sept.

    These contests are really great for expanding my TBR pile.

  119. FanLit
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:25:01

    The books I want to read are The Scot and I by Elizabeth Thornton and Colonel Brandon’s Diary by Amanda Grange.

    The books I look forward to in the fall are: Kindred in Death by J.D. Robb and Servent the Kindred by L.L. Foster. Then, even though it’s a December release and you didn’t ask for a third pick, I can’t wait for Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts

  120. Jody F.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:31:35

    The two books I’d love are both of the Emma Holly releases, Kissing Midnight and Breaking Midnight. I love her writing style and her upyr world is fascinating.

    The future book I’m giddy about is, of course, Emma Holly’s Saving Midnight.

  121. ASable
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:32:45

    As I tell my husband all the time, sometimes the line between want and need is almost invisible. Like when I call him from work and say I want to drown myself inside a tub of Ben & Jerry’s Karamel Sutra ice cream what I really mean is Honey, I need you to meet me at the front door with a cold drink and the name of the restaurant that’s going to be providing dinner for us tonight.

    Picking from these books presents the same dilemma–I want all of them but if I really have to narrow down my choices, I guess I need to read a good contemporary, so how about Christie Ridgway’s Dirty Sexy Knitting to get my fix?

    As for upcoming releases, I know I’m going to need to dive into Jill Shalvis’ Double Play (because how can I resist love AND baseball?) and Kandy Shepherd’s Love is a Four-Legged Word (because she had me laughing at the “millionaire dog”).

  122. Jen Kimball
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:34:07

    Oops, I posted on the wrong comment thread!

    I am SO ANXIOUS for Branded with Fire. I want to read it now and then again!! The Psy/Changling series is my FAVORITE series. I have been reading the excerpts on Ms. Singh’s website over and over until I get my hands on the book. That can’t happen soon enough for me. Then in the future I am looking foward to Blaze of Memory! Woo-hoo!

  123. Karen I
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:42:32

    Such a great list of books makes it hard to decide. But I think Obsidian Prey and Bengal’s Heart would have to be my choices. By the way, love your site.

  124. Tammy S
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:44:25

    Picking just two books is like eating just one potato chip – nearly impossible!

    That said and after a coin toss or three – my choices would be
    Nalini Singh – Branded By Fire
    and
    Jayne Castle – Obsidian Prey

    :::sniffling while looking at what didn’t make it – Christine Feehan – Hiddem Current, Lora Leigh – Bengal’s Heart:::

  125. Donna O
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 11:52:09

    I am thrilled and anxiously awaiting Branded By Fire and Atlantis Unleashed. However, I would be excited to win anything, I haven’t read all the series and/or authors listed so it would give me a fabulous excuse to read them. Thank you very much for the contest opportunity!!

  138. cursingmama
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 13:11:08

    Right Now – Dirty Sexy Knitting by Christie Ridgeway; I’m really looking forward to the conclusion of this trilogy OR Bunco Babes tell all by Maria Geraci; sounds like a lot of fun.

    I’m intrigued by Erin McCarthy’s new series starting this fall – My Immortal could be the book that takes me to the dark & paranormal reading genre.

  139. Cathy M
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 13:21:10

    Would love to read Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh now, and Caleb by Sara McCarty in the fall.

  140. Jessica
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 13:24:37

    my top two choices would be branded by fire by: nalini singh, and Kissing midnight by: Emma holly.

    however I’m also looking forward to christine feehans drake sisters book and Dirty sexy knitting as well, but pretty much every book sounds like it is going to be awesome!
    I think it so great that you are holding this contest and allowing us a chance to win and experience new books!

    I’m really excited about Branded by Fire coming out soon, it’s one of my “must-have-now” series. Davidson’s Undead books are a lot of fun, too, but I’m still catching up with the older titles in the series.

    In the want immediately category would be:

    Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger (otherwise I might forget)
    Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh (July is such a long way away)

    For now I want Kissing Midnight by Emma Holly and Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I am also curious about the Colonel Brandon’s Diary by Amanda Grange.

    I'm very excited about Pleasure and Purpose by Megan Hart (in September).

  164. Rose G.

    Never really posted before, but thought I'd give it a try. I really LOVE Nalini Singh and Christine Feehan. I’ve been counting down the days for the release of both Branded By Fire and Hidden Currents. These two would definitely be on my NOW list.

    Two I can’t wait for now are Hidden Currents by Feehan and of course Nalini Singh’s Branded by Fire.

  173. DanceChica
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 18:19:30

    The book I want right now is Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I cannot wait for this book! Especially after reading the excerpt Singh posted on her website.

    I can hardly wait for Feehan’s Hidden Currents. I’m so looking forward to Elle and Jackson’s story. I’m sad to see the Drake sisters stories end, but I have no doubt that Ms. Feehan will have other great things for us in the future. I’d also love to read Branded by Fire. Eagerly awaited…Lora Leigh’s newest Breed title, Bengal’s Heart. It’s gonna be a great summer! :)

  176. krystal
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 18:23:23

  177. Donna
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 18:24:08

    I haven’t read books from most of these authors. What a perfect time to try! Right now anything by Emma Holly is awesome.

    Later Maryjanice Davidson. I want to quit her but I don’t know how.

  178. peyton
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 18:28:39

    Jun 04, 2009 @ 18:57:47

    The waiting is killing me for Altlantis Unleashed and Branded By Fire. I’m a huge Alyssa Day and Nalini Singh fangirl. As for in the Fall I’m itching to get my hands on the new Robin D Owens book from her ‘Heart’ series.

  180. Connie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:14:21

    I can’t wait for Branded by Fire and Hidden Currents. I love all the books by Nalini Singh and Christine Feehan.

    Wow, so many lovely books to choose from. Out of all of them my two most wanted are:

    For this month Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I love her Psy/Changeling series.

    Out of the later releases I would like Obsidian Prey by Jayne Castle. I own all of hers and was very excited when she decided to write more Harmony novels.

    Thanks for the giveaways :)

  185. Kelly Maher
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:28:07

    The B/J books (ha!) I’d really like right now are:

    Hidden Currents by Feehan
    Black Hills by NR
    and
    Witch Fury by Anya Bast

    The August/September/October books I’m having trouble waiting for are:
    Obsidian Prey by JAK/Castle
    Dark Slayer by Feehan
    and
    Bengal’s Heart by Leigh

    There’s a whole *bunch* in November/December I’m looking forward to, also.

  186. Amy S.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:29:28

    I’m dying to read Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh and I have been wanting to get Sweet Persuasion by Maya Banks. Thanks for the chance to win!

  189. Lisa F.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:44:33

    I want to read Branded By Fire by Nalini Singh and Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh.

  190. Collette
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:46:16

    Oh man, lots of choices. Of the books you’ve listed, the ones I’d most like now are: Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh; Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day; and Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan. And of course, anything by Emma Holly is always lovely. (Well, by lovely I mean hot.) The book in August that looks great is Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn.

    And thank you for that link! I had no idea that Faith Hunter was starting a new series with Skinwalker. I seriously, seriously heart her. I’d stalk her if I knew where she lived. (Not really, I don’t have time but such is the strength of my devotion.)

  191. Katie S.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:49:11

    I can only pick one? Holy Cow!

    I’ll have to pick Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. Although, Kissing Midnight by Emma Holly is a really close second. So, I’d take that one too… =) Let’s be honest. I’d take any free book!

    I’m really looking forward to Bengal’s Heart by Lora Leigh. I cannot get enough of the Breeds series.

  192. Stephanie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 19:54:31

    Now: Atlantis Unleashed sounds interesting, and the author seems to have a sense of humor . . .

    Later: You got me with the Haunting Beauty description.

  193. Jan
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:06:09

    Of the books listed Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Colonel Brandon’s Diary by Amanda Grange are my choices.

    For the August, September, October time frame I would choose Obsidian Prey by Jayne Castle.

    Thanks for these giveaways!

  194. Sam
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:22:36

    I am probably most excited by The Belly Dancer in the new release pages at the Berkley website. The plot line is intriguing and much different from much of the other fare.

    The two that I’d be most interested in now would have to be Love is a Four-legged Word because it has cooking and a dog and I adore both, and Haunting Beauty because although I don’t go for most paranormal, I do happen to love ghost stories.

  195. Monica Kaye
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:23:59

    I just bought KISSING MIDNIGHT so I’m looking forward to SAVING MIDNIGHT, also BENGAL’S HEART (Lora Leigh is my girl crush!), BRANDED BY FIRE because Nalini Singh is awesome!, and HIDDEN CURRENTS because I can’t wait to see how the series ends.

  196. MeganS
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:45:25

    I’d love to give Love is a Four Legged Word and Haunting Beauty a try. And I think I’m most looking forward to Haunting Beauty, now that I know about it. :) It sounds great!

  197. Amy
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:46:34

    Like everyone else, the book I most want right now is Branded by Fire. I am having serious trouble waiting for this book. I can’t believe its been so long since the last Psy/Changling book.

    I’m also looking forward to Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton. I really enjoy the contemporaries she has written especially Girls of Summer. I didn’t realize she had gone into light paranormal romance actually so now I have another book by her to check out.

  198. Lacey
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:48:39

    Books I want now:
    Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh
    Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan

    August Book that I also want:
    Bengals Heart by Lora Leigh

    I am actually really excited about June/July/August book releases. There are some really good books coming out this summer, which is why if I could help my wallet out by winning some books it would probably be a good thing.
    Thanks for having these giveaways.

  199. cmndrs
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 20:55:47

  201. Kyesha
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 21:12:37

    I absolutely can not wait for Nalini Singh’s Branded By Fire, it sounds like a thrill ride waiting to happen. And I am also extremely intrigued by Nina Bruhns’s Shoot to Thrill. Both these books look like hotbeds for conflict and I can’t wait to get lost in thier worlds.

  202. BrookeReviews
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 21:16:45

    Definitely want Branded by Fire, love Nalini Singh! She rocks! Looking forward to Skin Walker by Faith Hunter :)

  204. Cari Quinn
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 21:41:21

    Now: Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day…because I’ve been itching to start reading some of her work.

    August Book I’m most excited about: Shoot To Thrill by Nina Bruhns

  205. Shelly @ Bewitched
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 21:55:21

    This is an awesome contest! Thanks, Ja(y)ne! The books I would love to be reading right now… Haunting Beauty (I can’t pass up anything to do with Ireland!) and Shoot to Thrill — as I haven’t tried a Nina Bruhns book.

    What I am most eagerly awaiting??? Atlantis Unleashed and Unmasked and Emma Holly’s Midnight trilogy!

  206. Josie
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 22:00:11

    Desperately wanting Branded by Fire NOW (how good is the extract!)

    And most looking forward to Emma Holly’s triology (I tend to buy them all at once rather than wait for each one to be released) and I’m a bit interested in checking out Sapphire Dreams – there just isn’t enough time-travel / pirate books being released for my liking!

  207. Zhan
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 22:12:46

    I am most looking forward to Nalini Singh’s Branded By Fire…just waiting in anticipation for this. The two books I would like are Branded By Fire (Nalini Singh) and Bengal’s Heart (Lora Leigh).

  208. Kaetrin
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 22:12:49

    Count me in for Nalini Singh’s Branded by Fire and one of the Emma Holly books please (either Breaking Midnight or Saving Midnight).

    I’m most looking forward to the new Nalini Singh book.

  209. Sheila L.
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 22:18:59

    Two books I would like to read now are HIDDEN CURRENTS by Christine Feehan and BRANDED BY FIRE by Nalini Singh.

    One future book I’m interested in is Shoot to Thrill by Nina Bruhns. I’ve enjoyed her category romances and Nikita Black stories.

  212. Michaela Basham
    Jun 04, 2009 @ 23:10:39

    Since I just came home from the bookstore yesterday with 13 new books, I have everything I want right now – except for more time to read!

    It’s hard to pick just two from the list of upcoming releases. I’ll have to say Alyssa Day’s Atlantis Unmasked, because I’ll be at the beach and can fantasize about hunky Atlanteans coming out of the waters! hehe
    I definitely also want Nalini Sing’s Branded by Fire. The Psy/Changeling series is such an interesting concept. Who else would’ve thought you could write a romance series with a race that outlawed emotions?

    Those are my TOP two, but I’d also love Chris Feehan’s Hidden Currents. If my Gram was reading this blog, she’d just want two of that book and nothing else, haha!

    I’m also a fan of Emma Holly’s Upyr series, but I haven’t started the Fitz Claire Chronicles yet (it’s in my TBR).

  213. Pam S
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 00:12:41

    Kissing Midnight by Emma Holly and Atlantis Unleashed are two that I am really looking forward to that just released.

    I am also looking forward to Shoot to Thrill by Nina Bruhns that releases in August

  214. Beth
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 03:20:47

    The book I want now is definitely Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh, I love her series and have been waiting for this one.
    I am also looking forward to Jayne Castle’s new release, Obsidian Prey, I have loved the fun nature of this series so far.

  215. jessw
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 03:36:48

    Most looking forward to Branded by Fire. Loved the Psy series and looking forward to her new world.
    i would like to have Branded by Fire and Shoot to Thrill.

    thank you.

  216. Chivone
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 04:03:54

    Two books that I am eagerly awaiting are Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh and Bengal's Heart by Lora Leigh. Each year so many great books come out between June and October. These are so popular I'd also like to add myself to the Hidden Currents list! I sould go on, but I'm at work. Hee!

    I forgot to add that I am most looking forward to Branded by Fire!

  217. Maureen
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 04:28:40

    Right now I would love to read Dirty Sexy Knitting by Christie Ridway and I’m looking forward to Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn. I had read her books when she was writing under a different name and enjoyed them very much.

  218. Ayesha
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 04:38:17

  219. Nifty
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 05:16:30

    I crave BRANDED BY FIRE by Nalini Singh. I’ve been loving this series, and I’m waiting on BBF to bust a 2-month long romance-reading dry spell. Bring on the Mercy and Riley! (And any little mention or hint of Hawke I can get my hands on!)

  220. Steff
    Jun 05, 2009 @ 07:31:35

    I’d love to win Christie Ridgeway’s Dirty Sexy Knitting and Nina Bruhn’s Shoot To Thrill.
