______________________

Six bestselling authors who know how to bring the heat and the darkness present six vampire romances with BITE.

900 pages of sexy vampire goodness.

The Wolf Within by New York Times Bestselling author Cynthia Eden – FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days–and his nights–tracking real-life monsters. After a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change…and soon he becomes one of the very beasts that he has hunted. Dr. Holly Young is supposed to help Duncan during his transition. It’s her job to keep him sane. But the growing desire between them could be a very dangerous thing…because when a vampire and a werewolf mate…their dark need may become an obsession that could destroy them both.

The Vampire Affair by New York Times Bestselling author Vivi Anna – Mak, an unconventional journalist, risks everything including her job to get the goods on billionaire businessman Jonathan Devane, a man who enthralled her for a single passionate kiss months prior, a man who makes her blood race, a man with dark secrets…

The Dark’s Mistress by Michele Hauf – Beguiled by the devil Himself, her only hope was the vampire who could not love her dark and tainted heart.

Blu and Creed’s daughter, Kambriel has come to Paris to ‘find herself’ and finds more than she bargained for when the man who seduces her with extravagant gifts and fine things reveals his true nature. Now she is desperate for freedom.

Johnny Santiago falls for the beautiful vampiress singing at Club l’Enfer, yet he doesn’t expect his rival to be the devil Himself. Can he rescue Kam from the dark prince before she loses her soul and forgets everything and everyone she has ever cared for?

A Taste for Passion by Patrice Michelle – Rana Sterling finally meets the man of her dreams and boy does he know how to push all the right buttons. Only, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Too-Good-to-Be-True turns out to be just that–he’s beyond her world.

After searching seventy years for his reincarnated fiancé, Lucian Trevane finally finds his mate in Rana, but with time working against him and a vengeful vampire determined to destroy the one ray of happiness he’s found, Lucian will have to call upon all his vampire skills and beyond in order to protect Rana and draw her fully into his world.

Captured by Erica Stevens – Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. Aria’s world is turned upside down when the vampire prince Braith steps forward to claim her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Paris After Dark by Jordan Summers – NY homicide detective, Rachel Chang is on a forced leave in Paris grieving over the loss of her partner, when she comes upon a violent attack outside the walls of Cimetiere du Montparnasse. A simple domestic dispute quickly turns into something far more sinister, when Rachel ends up on the wrong side of some very sharp fangs.

It should be noted that these are largely novellas and that they are starts of a series in many cases although I think each story has its own resolution. I actually think we might see a rise of paranormal romance although maybe not vampires but some other kind.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann BrasharesThe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. $ 2.99

From the Jacket Copy:

Some friends just fit together.

Once there was a pair of pants. Just an ordinary pair of jeans. But these pants, the Traveling Pants, went on to do great things. This is the story of the four friends—Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen—who made it possible.

PW “Their bonds, combined with a realistic portrayal of teen emotions (Tibby is embarrassed by the smock she has to wear to work at Wallman’s, while Carmen boils with rage when the seamstress fitting her bridesmaid dress disparages her curvy figure), make for an outstanding and vivid book that will stay with readers for a long time. Readers will hope that Brashares chronicles the sisterhood for volumes to come. “

The Paris Affair by Teresa GrantThe Paris Affair by Teresa Grant. $ 2.99

From the Jacket Copy:

From the ashes of war rise the secrets of its darkest hearts. . .

In the wake of the Battle of Waterloo, Paris is a house divided. The triumphant Bourbons flaunt their victory with lavish parties, while Bonapartists seek revenge only to be captured and executed. Amid the turmoil, British attaché and Intelligence Agent Malcolm Rannoch and his wife, Suzanne, discover that his murdered half-sister, Princess Tatiana Kirsanova, may have born a child–a secret she took to the grave. And Malcolm suspects there was more than mere impropriety behind her silence. . .

As Malcolm and Suzanne begin searching for answers, they learn that the child was just one of many secrets Tatiana had been keeping. The princess was the toast of Paris when she arrived in the glamorous city, flirting her way into the arms of more than a few men–perhaps even those of Napoleon himself–and the father must be among them. But in the melee of the Napoleonic Wars, she was caught up in a deadly game, and now Malcolm and Suzanne must race against time to save the child from a similar fate. . .

This is the third in a series featuring Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch. I remember enjoying Daughter of the Game, a highly regarded historical romance she penned under the name of Tracy Grant. The story is undoubtedly well researched and the reviews say it is a page turner.

The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope: A Novel by Rhonda RileyThe Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley. $ 1.99.

From the Jacket Copy:

The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope is an unconventional and passionately romantic love story that is as breathtaking and wondrous as The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

During WWII, teenager Evelyn Roe is sent to manage the family farm in rural North Carolina, where she finds what she takes to be a badly burned soldier on their property. She rescues him, and it quickly becomes clear he is not a man…and not one of us. The rescued body recovers at an unnatural speed, and just as fast, Evelyn and Adam fall deeply in love.

In The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope, Rhonda Riley reveals the exhilarating, terrifying mystery inherent in all relationships: No matter how deeply we love someone, and no matter how much we will sacrifice for them, we can only know them so well…

Library Journal writes “First-time novelist Riley’s exquisite language draws the reader into this improbable, beautifully rendered, somewhat biblical love story with a wildly imaginative premise that is irresistible, tender, and provocative.” and Kirkus says that it is a romance with ET trimmings (the hero is some kind of alien) Also beware that the reviews speak of a tragic ending.

    Heidi Cullinan has a new, free novella available on her website – it’s the wedding bw Mitch and Sam from Special Delivery. I haven’t read it yet but it’s 73 pages on my Nook, which is substantial for a free story.

    I’m really interested in the Teresa Grant but when I went to poke about on Amazon, it appears the novella where the pair are married and the first book in the series aren’t available to me for sale. But book 2 and 3 are. What is UP with that?? Grrrrr.
