Stacking The Shelves #10

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

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

Encore une semaine de dingue! Mais que voulez-vous, je pense que je vais éviter de vous faire le même laïus à chaque fois, je suis incorrigible!

Cette semaine, de très bons deals: j'ai eu 7 titres papiers pour moins de 20€ sur amazon (il m'a fallu quelques heures de recherches mais il semble qu'il y avait une sélection de titres en promo à +/- 3€ par romans!), j'ai reçu mes pré-commandes passées il y a longtemps sur The book depository.
Bref, au final, j'ai été raisonnable! ;)

Donc voici ce que j'ai obtenu cette semaine:

Pack Challenge, Magnus Pack #1, Shelly Laurenston

What's an Alpha Male to do when he meets the Alpha Female of his dreams? Step one, hide all sharp objects. All Zach Sheridan ever wanted was to become Alpha Male of his Pack and be left alone. What he definitely didn't need in his life was some needy female demanding his attention. What he never saw coming was the vicious, scarred female who not only demanded his attention but knew exactly how to get it. Sara Morrighan knew this was the best she could expect from her life. Good friends. A nice place to live. And a safe job. But when Zach rode into her small Texas town with his motorcycle club, Sara knew she wanted more. She knew she wanted him. But after one sexy encounter with her dream biker, everything is starting to change. Her body. Her strength. That new thing she's doing with the snarling. Even her best friends are starting to wonder what's going on with her. But this is only the beginning. Sara's about to find out her life was meant for so much more. And Zach's about to find true love with the one woman who makes him absolutely insane. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and strong violence.

Gunmetal Magic, Kate Daniels #5.5, Ilona Andrews

Some people have everything figured out — Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.

When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano — the male alpha of Clan Bouda and Andrea's former lover — die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate ... and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a backseat to saving the world ...

Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage, Highland Pleasures #2, Jennifer Ashley

Six years ago, eighteen-year-old Lady Isabella Scranton scandalized all of London by eloping the night of her come-out ball with the notorious rake, Lord Mac Mackenzie. After three turbulent years of marriage, she scandalized London once again—this time by leaving him.

Now Mac has resurfaced, every bit as charismatic, and with one goal: to seduce Isabella back into his life and his bed even if it means acting like a real gentleman. But when Isabella rises to the challenge of posing nude for Mac's erotic paintings, her pent-up hunger for the decadent rake is exposed as well, and she finds herself unable to resist the smooth strokes of an artist at work.

But someone's been watching them - dangerously close. This ingenious forger with designs on Mac's paintings also sets his sights on Isabella herself. Deciding to become Isabella's protector, Mac vows to never leave her side, whether his independent and proud lady likes it or not.

The Many Sins of Lord Cameron, Highland Pleasures #3, Jennifer Ashley

He is a man of simple tastes - and complex pleasures...
Cameron Mackenzie is a man who loves only horses and women - in that order - or so his mistresses say.

Ainsley Douglas is a woman with a strong sense of justice and the desire to help others - even if that means sneaking around a rakish man's bedchamber.

Which is exactly where Cam finds her - six years after he caught her the first time. Only then, she convinced Cam she was seeking a liaison, but couldn't go through with it because of her husband. Now a widow, she's on a mission to retrieve letters that could prove embarrassing to the queen. Cam has no interest in Ainsley's subterfuge, but he vows to finish what they started those many years ago. One game, one kiss at a time, he plans to seduce her. And what starts out as a lusty diversion may break Cam's own rules - and heal the scars of a dark and damaging past...

Dragon Warrior, Midnight Bay #2, Janet Chapman

The steamy second book in Janet Chapman’s dazzling Midnight Bay series seduces readers with an enticing tale of a fiery independent woman and an irresistible immortal warrior with a dragon’s courageous heart.

Maddy Kimble has no time for a suitor—not with caring for her spunky nursing home patients, her shy nine-year-old daughter, her widowed mother, and her rebellious teenage brother. William Kilkenny’s stunning lack of modern dating protocol doesn’t help. The man is uncouth and outrageous—a towering, drop-dead, breathtakingly hot warrior. Who refuses to give up.

William is secretly a ninth-century Irish nobleman formerly trapped in a dragon’s body. All Maddy knows is that lately, she can hardly resist the urge to lose herself in his powerful arms. But as their uncontrollable passion grows, eerie occurrences in her small coastal Maine town begin to rouse Maddy’s suspicions about her lover. He begs her to trust him, but how can she surrender—body and soul—when she fears the danger he poses to her yearning heart?

Evermore, Darkyn #5, Lynn Viehl

They are the only scars that mar Jayr's milky skin. Scars left by her Darkyn master, Byrne, when she gave her human life to save his. Made immortal, Jayr has served as Byrne's faithful seneschal -- and secretly loved him -- for centuries.

Every full moon, Jayr and Byrne renew their oath of loyalty by sharing each other's blood. Although the erotic ritual has become the only intimacy and pleasure they know, the price of immortality demands that they never be more than master and seneschal.

Unbeknownst to Jayr, Byrne decides to leave the Kyn and retreat to a life of isolation. And the sole purpose of the tournament he's holding is to find a new master for Jayr. As the Kyn fight for Byrne's realm, hidden passions and ancient grudges flare to life, threatening not only Byrne's sanity but Jayr's very existence....

Magic at the Gate, Allie Beckstrom #5, Devon Monk

Allie Beckstrom's lover, Zayvion Jones, is a Guardian of the Gate, imbued with both light and dark magic and responsible for ensuring that those energies don't mix. But Zayvion lies in a coma, his soul trapped in death's realm. And when Allie discovers that the only way to save Zayvion is to sacrifice her very own magical essence, she makes a decision that may have grave consequences for the entire world.

A Bloody Good Secret, Secret McQueen #2, Sierra Dean

After cheating death twice in one night, confessing her true nature to her werewolf soul mates and being asked to kill one of her closest friends, Secret took a much-needed vacation. By running away.

Now she’s back in town—dragged kicking and screaming—determined to clear Holden Chancery’s name. Right after she finds out what he’s accused of. It shouldn’t be hard—Holden has a habit of using their new and scintillating psychic bond to break into her thoughts and dreams at some very, shall we say, awkward moments.

Just a few things stand in her way: a secretive Tribunal leader, a group of would-be vampire slayers and two werewolf boyfriends who refuse to let her operate in her customary lone-wolf style. Even less amusing are the terrifying creatures that someone is using in an attempt to gain control of the council. Even for this out-of-the-ordinary bounty hunter, it’s a challenge with potentially deadly teeth.
Crimson Moon, Crimson Trilogy #1, J.A. Saare

An average morning is what Emma Johnson envisions when she visits Joe's Caf for a steaming cup of coffee. But the world isn't the place she imagined it to be, and neither is she... After Emma is rescued from a horde of bloodthirsty creatures, she discovers she is the daughter of a powerful Vampire from the House Deviard, her rescuer, Caleb, having been sent to see her safely home. For Caleb is also unique, a werewolf procured to protect the royal Vampiric bloodlines from harm - but nothing more. Soon, the undeniable connection Emma and Caleb share evolves beyond attraction into something unexpected. When she is forced to make a choice, what path will she take - vampire or wolf?

The Renfield Syndrome, Rhiannon's Law #2, J.A. Saare

Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she’s about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.

Unfortunately, time changes a lot of things; including those most trusted around her. When she’s faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she’ll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.

After all, when it’s all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul.

Losing Lila, Lila #2, Sarah Alderson

Alex and Lila are on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of the Unit, which somehow is managing to track their every move. Whilst Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila’s only thought is of finding a way back to California so that she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they’re being held.

Struggling to control both her growing power and her deepening feelings for Alex, Lila decides the time has finally come to stop running and start fighting. Together with Alex, Demos, and the people she’s come to think of as family, Lila plans not just to save her brother and mother, but to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for.

But the plan requires Lila to return alone to California, make friends with the enemy, and to risk losing everything - Alex, her family, and even her life.

Et voici pour la tournée numérique:

Blade Song, J. C. Daniels

Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

Forever Bound, Cynthia Eden

FOREVER BOUND includes the following four best-selling titles by Cynthia Eden:

    My Haul

    1. I know, a lot a lot of books! I think I have a problem! lol
      Thanks for stopping by, I gonna visit your blog now!

  5. Bonjour! Je parle francais, un petit peu, mais je ne suis pas bon. (: J'espere tu aimes tes livres!

    Je suis un "follower" nouveau! "Follow back," s'il vous plait? (: Here's my FF!

    1. Ne t'inquiète pas, ton français ne peut pas être pire que mon anglais! lol

      Merci d'avoir visité mon blog, je vais découvrir le votre maintenant. :D

  6. Eh ben, un bon deal à ce que je vois :) Que de l'anglais? :( Tu n'achètes plus de livres en français?

    Moi j'ai reçu d'un concours (love-of-book) La Tour des Illusions d'Anthelme Hauchecorne et c'est tout pour cette semaine xD

    1. Coucou Tetel!
      Non, ne t'inquiète pas, je n'achète pas qu'en anglais mais c'est vrai qu'en ce moment, il y a moins de titres en Vf qui me branchent et là, c'était surtout l'occasion de compléter quelques séries ou d'en découvrir à moindre prix.
      Septembre par contre, il y a 9 sorties en Vf qui m'attendent! :)

      Je ne connais pas du tout La Tour des Illusions mais je viens d'en lire le résumé et ça a l'air assez barré. j'ai hâte de savoir ce que tu en penses! ;)

    2. Oui je comprends. Moi aussi je suis moins en mode: il faut que j'aille en magazin, il y a de bonnes sorties. Malheureusement, je me contenterais du français. Je comprends. Quand j'ai acheté Men of the otherworld de Kelley Armstrong, j'ai pu constater que les prix étaient moins élévé qu'en France pour les VO. J'étais à deux doigts de prendre Hunger Game en VO et puis finalement je les ai trouvé en occaz.

      Ah oui? lesquelles? Dernièrement j'ai été déçu par La fille du Soleil Noir de M.L.N Hanover, du coup j'hésite un peu à reprendre des nouvelles séries. Par contre j'attends impatiemment le tome 2 de Caleb.

      Oui. Pour pouvoir gagner il fallait répondre à des questions sur l'auteur et du coup j'ai bien accroché autant à l'auteur qui est déjanté que son recueil de nouvelle. Au moins ça change :)

    3. Alors voyons voir, dans ma WL de Septembre en VF:
      Maeve Regan 2
      Les Aventures de tony foster #1 de Tanya huff
      L'école de laa nuit #2
      Alpha et Omega #3
      Le clan des nocturnes #1 et 2
      Danny Valentine #4
      Kaïken de Christophe Grangé

      Bref, aïe Aïe aïe le porte monnaie!

    4. J'en connais aucun à part Alpha et Omega ! *part chercher sur le net des infos sur le reste*

  7. Alala comment fais tu pour caser tout ça xD

    1. C'est le cauchemar de mon mari. Le plus drôle c'est qu'il a cru (alors que je l'avais prévenu) que le reader limiterait mes achats de livres papiers mais que nenni!
