Stacking The Shelves #6

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

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

Coucou tout le monde! Encore une fois, j'ai eu une semaine prolifique et comme d'hab, je suis ravie de partager mes nouveaux titres avec vous pour courir ensuite voir les vôtres! 

Alors commençons par les ebooks. En effet, n'étant pas encore habituée à l'utilisation de mon reader, j'ai tendance à oublier que si j'obtiens un nouveau fichier, c'est que j'ai un nouveau livre dans ma bibliothèque.

Gifts of the Blood, Gifted Blood #1, Vicki Keire

Caspia Chastain, art student and barista, is gifted (or plagued, if you ask her) with the ability to draw the future, usually at the worst possible times. Her parents are four years dead; everyday she watches her brother Logan fight his cancer diagnosis. Things get worse for Caspia the day she draws an angry stranger framed by planes of light and violent, bloody images. That exact same stranger walks up to her out of nowhere mere hours later knowing things he shouldn't, like her name, her brother's illness, and her strange ability. That's when Caspia discovers her hometown is a refuge for supernatural beings both Light and Dark, and she and her brother find themselves caught up in a war between the two that predates their very birth. In order to protect herself and her brother, she turns to the one who seems to have started it all: the man who walked out of her sketchbook calling himself Ethan.

But Ethan has his own agenda, Logan's getting sicker fast, and Caspia finds that drawing the future isn't the only strange thing she can do. Meanwhile, someone really wants all of them dead. In a town where Dark doesn't equal Evil and Light isn't always Good, Caspia and Ethan find themselves making strange alliances and even stranger sacrifices in order to protect those they love.

Darkness in the Blood, Gifted Blood #2, Vicki Keire

 Caspia Chastain finally has what she’s always wanted. She’s in a supportive relationship with a one-of-a kind guy. (Really. He’s the only one of his kind. Ever.) Her brother is so healthy it’s mildly terrifying. She hasn’t drawn the future in ages, her school schedule is creepy professor free, and her job as Whitfield’s only Coffee Goddess remains secure.

But someone is kidnapping Nephilim descendents and using them to build an army. An unpredictable new gift threatens to consume her. With it comes a persistent dream: a strange young man with gifted blood who may hold the key to her ancestry. Whitfield has enough buried secrets to protect its residents, though, even if that protection comes with a price.

Ethan has secrets, too. He’s never spoken of his long life before meeting Caspia. When his past catches up with him, it could tear their relationship and the Realms apart. Soon, Caspia and Ethan must discover if the light and life they’ve built together can withstand the gathering darkness.

The Vampire's Bride, Atlantis #4, Gena Showalter

Enter a world of dragons, demons and nymphs...enter a world of dark seduction and powerful magic...enter Atlantis...He is Layel, king of the vampires, a master seducer no woman can deny. But since a rogue horde of dragons killed his beloved over two centuries ago, Layel has existed only for vengeance...until he meets Delilah. Wary of love, the beautiful Amazon wants nothing to do with the tormented vampire. Yet there's no denying their consuming desire every time he nears her. Neither trusts the other - nor can they survive alone. For in an impossible game of the gods' devising, they've been trapped on an island, about to face the ultimate challenge: surrender to the passion that will bind them forever...or be doomed to an eternity apart.

Voici une bonne pioche d'ebooks à découvrir. Les deux premiers étaient gratuits au moment de ma commande (merci Sab), et le troisième à 0.99€ donc je ne me suis pas ruinée! ;)

Voici la fournée papier:


Tendrement, Lucky Harbor #2, Jill Shalvis

Dix-sept ans après un été mémorable passé à Lucky Harbor, Tara est de retour dans cette petite station balnéaire, où sa mère lui a légué, ainsi qu’à ses sœurs, un hôtel qu’elles ont décidé de retaper. Alors qu’elle tente de résister à son attirance pour le beau Ford Walker, son amour de jeunesse, les conséquences de ce qu’ils ont partagé tant d’années auparavant ressurgissent. Pour mieux les réunir ?  

L'Appel des Ombres, Démoniaque #2, Marjorie M. Liu

Nom : Kiss
Prénom : Maxine
Profession : Chasseuse de démon
Signe distinctif : Couverte d'une armure de tatouage protecteurs, transmis de mère en fille, et capables de prendre vie.
Mission : Découvrir qui a été assez malin et pervers pour tenter de m'assassiner au moment où je m'y attendais le moins.

Wicked Nights, Angels of the Dark #1,  Gena Showalter

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless--and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost...until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation--or her ultimate damnation?

My Lady Mage, Warriors of the Mist #1, Alexis Morgan 

It is whispered in Agathia that the legendary warriors of the mist—cursed by the gods—can be summoned only when a champion is needed and the cause is just. Gideon, their captain, knows this to be the one path that will lead his men to redemption—lest they face an eternity of damnation.

Years have passed since anyone has journeyed to the river's edge, but times are desperate. Oppressed by a cruel guardian whose dark magic threatens to destroy her people, the beautiful and courageous Merewen calls upon the bespelled warriors. In Gideon she finds more than a champion, and in his arms, more than protection. However, their enemies are fighting with a power darker than anything than they imagined, and should Gideon fail, she will lose everything she holds dear—including her heart.

A Hunger So Wild, Renegade Angels #2, Sylvia Day 

Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare Alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels.

Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty with a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash's death even as his passion demands her surrender.

Soon, their enmity erodes beneath an all-consuming desire. Elijah has never encountered a woman whose warrior spirit and fierce sexual appetite rivals his own, while Vash is faced with the one man strong enough to be her equal. But as war looms, each must decide where their loyalty lies--with their own kind or with the enemy lover they can no longer live without.

Voili voilou, et la semaine prochaine devrait aussi être pas mal! Hi hi. Je suis incorrigible. 

Et pour ce qui est de la couv de A Hunger So Wild, oui...je suis d'accord avec vous... MIAM!!
