Stacking The Shelves #13

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

Bon, je ne vais pas vous refaire le speech sur ma longue absence mais simplement vous dire que je suis contente de pouvoir reprendre un petit peu mon blog chéri. 
Je ne vais pas non plus vous mettre en détail l'ensemble des livres que j'ai acquis depuis deux mois (euh..à moins que vous vous ennuyez ferme?), vous le découvrirez au fur et à mesure de mes chroniques. 
En attendant, voici ce que j'ai reçu cette semaine:

Well, I won't tell you again about my so long absence but I'll only tell how much I'm glad to come back to my dear blog.
Also, I won't list all the books I received for the last two months (well...except if you're bored to death?), you'll discover it along with my reviews.
For now, here is what I received this week:

Et c'est parti, en format papier d'abord:

Here we go, in paperback first:

Lord's Fall, Elder Races #5, Thea Harrison

Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom. 

In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…

The Shattered Dark, Shadow Reader #2, Sandy Williams

McKenzie Lewis has a gift. It allows her access to a world few have seen, and even fewer can comprehend. It’s her secret. And it exists in the shadows… 

McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm. It’s a gift for which she has been called insane, one for which she has risked family and friends—and one that has now plunged her into a brutal civil war between the fae.

With the reign of the king and his vicious general at an end, McKenzie hoped to live a more normal life while exploring her new relationship with Aren, the rebel fae who has captured her heart. But when her best friend, Paige, disappears McKenzie knows her wish is, for now, just a dream. McKenzie is the only one who can rescue her friend, but if she’s not careful, her decisions could cost the lives of everyone she’s tried so hard to save.

Desperately Seeking Shapeshifter, Midnight Liaisons #2, Jessica Sims

Sarah Ward, the werewolf sister of Bathsheba from Beauty Dates the Beast, and co-owner of their paranormal online dating agency, Midnight Liaisons, is voluntarily traded to a wolf clan in exchange for a kidnapped female were-cougar. Fearful of what might happen to her while with the wolf clan, she and Ramsey, a were-bear who’s part of the were-cougar alliance, pretend to be engaged so he can stay with her for protection. The last thing either of them expect is for their pretend engagement to lead to a very real love affair…

Fatal Rendez-Vous, Chasseuses d'Aliens #1, Gena Showalter

Traqueuse d'aliens aux méthodes musclées, Mia Snow appartient à une brigade d'élite qui tente d'imposer la loi humaine aux hordes sauvages débarquées à New Chicago. Lors d'une enquête, son coéquipier est gravement blessé. Une seule personne peut le sauver: Kyrin, un Arcadien, la plus redoutable des races aliens. En échange, celui-ci exige d'elle qu'elle trahisse les siens.
Tiraillée entre son devoir et l'attraction irrésistible qui la lie au dangereux Kyrin, Mia fera-t-elle le bon choix ?

Sans Coeur, Le Protectorat de l'Ombrelle #4, Gail Garriger

Lady Alexia Maccon a de nouveau des problèmes.
Sauf que cette fois, elle n’y est vraiment pour rien. Un fantôme fou menace la reine ! Alexia mène l’enquête… jusque dans le passé de son époux. Pendant ce temps, sa soeur rejoint le mouvement des suffragettes, Madame Lefoux met au point sa dernière invention mécanique et des porcs-épics zombies envahissent Londres, le tout une nuit de pleine lune.
Alexia découvrira-t-elle qui tente d’assassiner la reine Victoria avant qu’il ne soit trop tard ? Loups-garous et vampires verront-ils le soleil se lever ? Et qui ou quoi, exactement, a élu résidence dans le deuxième dressing préféré de Lord Akeldama ?

La Tentation des Ombres, Sabina Kane #4, Jaye Wells

1) d’apprendre à jouer en équipe, 
2) de traquer un assassin, 
3) d’assurer l’avenir des créatures de la nuit. À présent que la menace d’une guerre entre races appartient au passé, Sabina Kane peut s’occuper de l’avenir : de sa relation avec le beau mage Adam, et de sa soeur Maisie qu’elle aide à surmonter le traumatisme de sa captivité à la Nouvelle Orléans. Même Giguhl se tient tranquille. Mais tout cela est trop beau pour être vrai, et les craintes de Sabina se confi rment quand une série de meurtres sadiques menace les négociations fragiles entre les mages et les vampires. Sabina doit arrêter le meurtrier. Mais plus elle s’approche de sa cible, plus elle comprend qu’il pourrait s’agir d’un ennemi qu’elle sera incapable de tuer.

A Hunter's Blade, Cera DuBois

Brigit Wolfe, a born werewolf, hasn't killed a human in over a hundred years, although now she wonders if the animal attacking people in Silver Creek, Colorado, isn't her. But she might have bigger problems when her cowboy neighbor, Austin Calhoun, ambles into her bar. Austin hasn't been a vampire for long, but he is determined to prove to himself that he's worthy of his hunter's dagger. Brigit's rare beauty and blade-sharp tongue enchant him. She ignites a passion he thought was dead, but is she the killer his master sent him to destroy? During Austin's investigation regarding Brigit's involvement in the deaths, an old crime surfaces connected to her human best friend. These two immortal enemies have to join forces to solve the mystery before someone else dies. But can they survive the heat of their own desire?

Fall From Grace, Mad World  #1, Christine Zolendz

I'm finally home after struggling through my brother's illness and death. But, home is definitely a bit different. My best friend (the only person alive now that knows my secret) has a new boyfriend; and he has a friend. Shane Maxton: bad boy, tattooed rock god, eye candy extraordinaire. He is also New York City's most arrogant, self-serving, son of a, well, a definite one-night stand kind of a guy.
But, it doesn't matter to me because I've spent my existence looking for the love of my life, my angel. And, there is nothing that Shane Maxton can do to change that. 

Saving Grace, Mad World #2, Christine Zolendz

After spending over 2,000 years being a lost soul looking for the angel I was forbidden to fall in love with, I finally found him. Lucky for me he has taken up residence inside the hot body of NYC’s local bad boy, tattooed rock star, Shane Maxton. Turns out, not only is he absolutely perfect, so is the whole Grace Taylor life that I’m stuck in. The only problem is Gabriel. An archangel who wants me all to himself so he kind of kidnaps me. Now I have to find my way back and hope everything works out…

  2. Merci Kay d'être passée par mon blog! J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance de la série de Gail Garriger mais pour tout te dire, je n'ai lu que le premier tome pour l'instant. Comme je sais que la série n'en compte que 5, je préférais les avoir sous la main pour ne pas souffrir de l'attente!
    Cependant, je te la recommande! :)
