Stacking The Shelves # 5

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

(Pour une version française, voir La Bibliothèque de Lilie)

Bonjour à tous,

Trois semaines sans vous donner de nouvelles mais du coup un gros Stacking The Shelves qui retrace mes acquisitions durant cette période. Je vais d'ailleurs de ce pas rattraper mon retard sur vos blogs. Sur ce, enjoy!

Et c'est reparti pour un Stacking The Shelves de folie! Pourquoi? Parce que mon zhomme m'a fait un super cadeau d'anniversaire: le Kindle Touch!

Et voici donc ma première fournée de ebook!!! Hiiiiiiiiiii!

Obsidian, A Lux Novel #1, Jennifer L. Armentrout (Ebook)

Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.

Shadows, A Lux Novella #0.5, Jennifer L. Armentrout (Ebook)

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.
Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.
Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.
Captivated. Lured. Loved.
Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

Wolf Signs, Granite Lake Wolves #1, Vivian Arend (Ebook)

Robyn Maxwell doesn't care that her brother has to cancel out on their backcountry ski trip. She can do it alone. The fact she's deaf doesn't make her survival skills any weaker. The chance to get away from it all and relax in the Yukon wilderness is just what she's been craving. Meeting wilderness guide Keil at the cabin starts cravings of another kind. Keil's one hot hunk of ripped, tasty male. Now she has to deal with raging hormones as well as strange questions about wolves and mates and challenges to the death. Keil was trying for a nice reflective retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn't planning on meeting the woman destined to be his mate, or finding out she's not aware she has the genes of a wolf. Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week--and his bed--is suddenly full. Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind....

Wolf Flights, Granite Lake Wolves #2, Vivian Arend (Ebook)

Tad Maxwell’s workaholism serves to keep his bush-pilot company in the air, and his inner werewolf in check. In the two years since he discovered his heritage, he’s resisted the longing to test the power of his wolf side. It would mean compromising his human principles. 

Then Missy Leason re-enters his life. Ten years ago, their teenage attraction never went beyond hand-holding. Now their chemistry is off the charts, pushing him closer to the step he’s not sure it’s safe to take, especially with a human. 
But Missy is more like Tad than he realizes. She’s wolf too,and a wolf pack is a dangerous place to have secrets. Missy’s Alpha has sniffed out her carefully hidden Omega powers. Her first response: run from the corrupt Alpha’s plan to make her his mate. Step two: get to Tad, and hope like hell his untapped powers are strong enough to negate her own. 
Every touch with Missy is hot, hot, hot, but even finding out she’s pure wolf doesn’t solve Tad’s dilemma. Is she using him, or are they truly destined mates? Only one thing is certain. He will defend her to his last breath—on his terms. Even if it means losing his life. 

The Vincent Boys, Abbi Glines (Ebook)

Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah

Devil's Gate, Elder Races #4.6, Thea Harrison (Ebook)

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.
Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more...personal reasons, doesn't hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil's Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.
In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil's Gate alive.

Et il va s’avérer que ceux qui tirent les ficelles de cette retransmission clandestine sont membres d’un groupe d’extrémistes qui considèrent qu’un bon vampire est un vampire bien mort.  

Carbone Modifié, Richard Morgan

Dans un avenir pas si lointain, la mort n'est plus définitive : vous pouvez sauvegarder votre conscience et vos souvenirs et les réimplanter dans un nouveau corps.
De fait, pour Takeshi Kovacs, mourir n'est plus qu'un accident de parcours : il a déjà été tué plusieurs fois. C'étaient les risques du métier dans les Corps diplomatiques, les troupes d'élite du Protectorat des Nations unies expédiées à travers la galaxie.

Secret of the Wolf, Warriors of The Rift #2, Cynthia Garner

Changeling, MetaWars #2, Kelly Meding

The second in a new series by popular urban fantasy author Kelly Meding, about an X-Men-like group of young people with superpowers who must find a way to work together.
Five months ago, Dahlia Perkins was a struggling newspaper journalist whose biggest responsibility was paying her rent on time. After learning she has the ability to absorb and deflect massive amounts of heat and fire, Dahlia is struggling to find her place as the newest hero in an established team of former Rangers freelancing their abilities in post-Meta War Los Angeles.
The team’s first major case: two discarded human skins. One is a John Doe, the other was a janitor for Weatherfield R&D, a scientific research and development firm Dahlia once investigated—and she’s itching to investigate them again. The ability to use and shed another person’s skin isn’t a power any of them have encountered before, nor something any of their former Meta enemies possess. But when a third skin appears and one of Dahlia’s teammates is nearly killed by an assassin’s bullet, it’s clear someone else besides Weatherfield is targeting the Rangers—and their killer may not be Meta at all.  

Once Burned, Night Prince #1, Jeaniene Frost

He's the Prince of Night...

Vlad's ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him—a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

    1. C'est clair Melliane, trop bête que nous ne soyons pas plus près mais je surveille de près tes acquisitions..qui sait, peut-être que je pourrai te faire plaisir à mon tour fin Août! ;)
      En plus, tu lis tellement plus rapidement que moi, et moi je dégaine tellement vite dans mes acquisitions que je pourrais craquer et toi les lire avant moi! lol

    2. lol on est terrible moi je te dis!!! Là je viens de finir kiss the dead, ça y est, lu mon 21 eme d'Anita Blake. On se complète bien je trouve finalement.

    3. C'est même plutôt drôle! Bah...Montpellier, c'est un peu loin quand même... Quel dommage! :)En même temps, je crois que si tu me parlais en direct de tes lectures, je ferai banqueroute en moins d'une semaine!

    4. A qui le dis tu, si toi tu me disais tout ce que tu avais je suis sure que j'acheterais la moitié pour les lire aussi.

    5. JE te le dis: nous sommes irrécupérables!

  3. Massive haul! I love Thea Harrison, so I really need to get my hands on Devil's Gate...Once Burned is on my wish-list and Obsidian sounds pretty good. Have a great time reading these books! :)

    My Stacking The Shelves

    1. Thank you Mirjam! I love Thea Harrison. Dragon Bound is really on of my favourite books! I still have Serpent(s Kiss and Oracle's Moon in my TBR pile but I try no to read them too fast. I keep them like very good chocolates! ;)

  4. Grosse moisson :D
    J'espère que ce ne seront que de bonnes lectures ;)

    1. Merci Jamestine! Je pense qu'il y a quelques pépites parmi ces nouvelles acquisitions en effet! :)

  5. Bonjour! Great set! I really want to read Jennifer Armentrout's books. I've heard they're great.

    1. I've heard the same! Thanks a lot for stopping by my baby blog! I'm going to visit yours now! :D

  6. Mon doux tu n'as beaucoup cette semaine! Once Burned, Changeling, Shaedes of Gray...WOOOOOT!!!!! Des superbes choix!

    1. Lol. En fait Julie, ce Stacking The Shelves regroupe trois semaines d'acquisitions à cause d'une petite absence de ma part. Mais tu as raison, de superbes livres qui n'attendent que moi! :)

  7. Ah, tu as craqué pour la kindle? J'hésite parce que la collection est importante aussi. J'aime voir mes livres bien rangés. Alors que les e book, certe c'est moins cher et moins épais, mais... Je pense que je finirais par craquer.

    Bref, beaucoup d'achats durant ces 3 semaines :) J'ai aussi fait l'acquisition du "sang du rock" tome 2. Et je sais plus si je te l'ai dit, mais j'ai mon VO :)

    1. Je te confirme (et d'autres pourraient te le dire facilement), je n'arrêterai en aucun cas de céder à l'appel du livre mais je trouve que c'est un excellent complément pour lire notamment les nouvelles qui sont parfois publiées uniquement en format numérique.
      Et j'avoue avoir craqué pour des livres gratuits ou à prix mini (-1€) que je n'aurai pas acheté en version papier. J'ai d'ailleurs craqué comme tu l'as vu pour Go To Hell de Oxanna Hope et c'est vrai que je ne l'aurai sans doute pas acheté en version papier.
