What kind of assassin works pro bono?

It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most. To the public, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker-‘Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists. At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer . . . who is about to save her life.

But the gambler in him can’t resist when beguiling Annabel Lake proposes a wager. If she wins their card game, he must help save her family’s foundering brewery. But if he wins, she must spend a night in his bed. The outcome sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy all his plans . . . and unveils the secret Annabel has held for so long.

New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enthralls with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, powers beyond imagining, and a seductive vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. . . .

Growing up poor on New Chicago’s meanest streets, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator or be the prey. No contest. Now, working for Alien Investigation and Removal, she’s been ordered to capture the biggest, baddest warrior of all-‘a vampire too beautiful to be real, with the abilityto manipulate time. Once the leader of the entire vampire army, McKell has been deemed savage and unstable, spurned even by his own kind.

To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance. Yet the petite, golden-skinned Ava is a fascinating contradiction-‘vicious yet witty, strong yet vulnerable, lethal but fiercely loyal. Against his better judgment, McKell craves that loyalty, and much more. When the chase leads to seduction, McKell and Ava will race to discover the truth about his past. But the answers will come at a price, even for a woman who thought she had nothing left to lose. . . .

In 1792, the village of Hadley Green executed a man for stealing the Countess of Ashwood’s historic jewels. Fifteen years later, questions still linger. Was it a crime of greed-‘or of passion?

When Declan O’Connor, Earl of Donnelly, arrives at Hadley Green to meet with Lily Boudine, the new countess of Ashwood, he knows instantly that the lovely woman who welcomes him is not who she pretends to be. In an attempt to avoid an unwanted marriage, Keira Hannigan has assumed her cousin’s identity and is staying at the estate while Lily is abroad. When Declan threatens to expose her, Keira convinces him to guard her secret, then enlists him in her investigation of the missing jewels, for she now believes an innocent man was hanged.

Unable to deny the beautiful, exasperating Keira-‘or their simmering passion-‘Declan reluctantly agrees. But neither is prepared for the dangerous stranger who threatens to reveal Keira’s lies . . . and Declan knows he must protect Keira at all costs, for she is the woman who now owns his heart.

    Sep 22, 2010 @ 20:21:04

    Have quite a few, most have been mentioned numerous times like Nora Roberts, IIona Andrews, JR Ward, Lora Leigh. But I think I will add Gena Showalter to the list, I have seen her books but never picked one up–have no idea why, just never have–but after reading the excerpt I will be making a trip out tomorrow to get some of her books. This is why I love this website, always find new authors to read:)

  70. vickyvak
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 07:06:54

    I can’t wait to read Alpha by Rachel Vincent!!!

  71. Cynthia N
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 07:23:05

    Without a doubt it would have to be Shayla Black’s Entice Me At Twilight, her
    Doomsday Brethren Series, Book 4; ah yes,
    Duke's story.

    That is Number One among many. Of course, today is the first full day of fall, so, let the new reading season begin!

  72. Host
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 08:35:45

  77. Patricia Conroy
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 09:52:08

    Sabrina Jeffries and Julia London two of my favorites. Can`t wait for Hellion in Her Bed looks to be an excellent read! Sabrina always is!

  78. Hillary
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 10:00:32

    I will absolutly be reading Ecstasy in Darkness and Blod Trinity this fall counting down the days!!!

  79. willaful
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 10:46:34

    I will read, with some fear, Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold. And you should too, because if she does what she’s been saying she’ll do, it’s going to break a major romance rule. Which of course she can do, because it’s science fiction. And yet… (sob)… I don’t want it to happen!

  80. Peggy Q
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 10:56:18

    I look forward to reading Wicked Delights of a Bridal bed by Tracy Ann Warren

  81. DianeN
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 11:04:58

    To my own surprise I’m really looking forward to JR Ward’s Crave. I gave up on the BDB several books ago and I had no plans to read Covet, the first book in her new series, but I was curious to see if JR could surprise me with something new and different. Obviously she did, or I wouldn’t be “craving” this book now!

  82. Catherine
    Sep 23, 2010 @ 11:28:10

    l think I’ve got OCD because I keep databases of all the books I’ve read, & what’s due out/& when, to buy. Thank goodness for e-readers and space conservation.

    All the urban fantasy above are on my list , as well as An Artificial Night (October Daye, Book 3)by Seanan McGuire and Jennifer Rardin’s Bitten in Two (Jaz Parks, Book 7). Jennifer Rardin will be missed!

    So many I wish I could get, but nothing to do about that.
    Only one I really have budget for is Joey W. Hill’s Vampire Trinity. I have been lucky enough to win some great ones though.

    I’ll definitely be reading a Hellion in Her Bed! Tonight in fact! I loved the first book of the “hellions” and can’t wait for the second. You should read both!

    Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord by
    Sarah Maclean ! I enjoyed her first one a lot and can’t wait for her second.

    I can’t wait to read Inside Out by Lauren Dane and much like the person who left a comment right before me I also can’t wait for Ten Ways to be Adored When Landing a Lord. Unlike the Lauren Dane book which I have been waiting for each new book in this series after loving Laid Bare, Sarah MacLean was a complete surprise for me this year. I picked her up at the library and her Nine Rules to break has been my favorite historical romance so far this year!
