I regret Nothing! What's On The Reading Radar #TBR #WishList

I had to make this confession to my husband the other day... "You know how if you have an ebook through Amazon they sometimes offer the audiobook for a discounted price? Yeah, well, it asked me if I wanted Amazon to search my purchases for such deals, and I thought, 'What the hell,' and I sort of went crazy."

Him: "How crazy? Do you even know how much you spent?"

Me: "I can sort of guess."

Him looking incredulous: "Guess?"

Me: "I wasn't really paying attention to how many I clicked on because, you know, $1.99 here $3.49 there."

So my unintentional excursion ate into my Black Friday money and I regret Nothing! ^_^

Now for the interesting finds while I was book browsing. Enjoy!--but perhaps not as much as I did. Those little purchases added up faster than I thought they would. LOL!

Rhys has spent his entire life in underground Winderport. He knows there’s a whole other world above his “sky,” but he isn’t interested—until the day he chases a killer to that mystical upper world and sees Kullian, all six-foot-something of perfection. So what if the man is a notorious and powerful Fey Baron? Rhys isn’t a typical law-abiding citizen himself. The very fact that Kullian is dangerous makes him that much more attractive and has Rhys wanting things he’s never even considered before.

Yet an injury causes Rhys to lose most of his memories, and his only clues to his identity are his gun and a camera with pictures of Kullian’s silver eyes looking right into the lens. But Rhys does have a couple vague remembrances—a very strong desire to be in the arms of the sexy Kullian, and the recollection that before his injury he was after a murderer, a killer who just might be Kullian himself...

She saved one life…now she could lose her own.

It takes more than an ominous warning to scare trauma surgeon Kate Marshall into hiding. The patient who just died on her table had connections to a crime lord with a vicious reputation for revenge. However, when a ghostly figure appears right before bullets start whizzing past her head, Kate is forced to admit she’s stumbled into a Twilight Zone of trouble.

Ex-army doctor Jason Nolan should have been on duty at the hospital, but ghosts from his past drove him to numb his burned-out soul in the back booth of a waterfront bar. When the tall, leggy, Grace Kelly lookalike tracks him down to give him a piece of her razor-sharp mind, he figures he deserves it.

But Kate doesn’t deserve to be stalked by a shadowy serial killer with a motive that extends all the way to the Louisiana bayou and ties to a past Nolan would like to forget. Only Nolan can help Kate navigate the terrifying path that lies ahead. A path riddled with voodoo, superstition and death.

Breaking her curse will cost him his heart…and possibly his life.

The Brothers Bernaux, Book 1

For the past five years, Elita Raisonne has been on the run from a curse that started with her grandmother, and gradually reached out evil tendrils to kill her mother and her aunts. Now, healing from another nasty accident, Elita can feel the curse coming for her like icy breath on the back of her neck.

Her only hope: trek deep into Louisiana’s Atchafayala Basin and ask the mysterious Bernaux brothers for help.

Pryor Bernaux takes one look at the black smudge clinging to Elita like a shroud, and recognizes the work of a powerful hex worker. Together, all three Bernaux brothers could easily break it—if Mercer and Wyatt weren’t away.

As the curse sinks deeper into Elita’s soul, Pryor realizes time is running out for the beautiful redhead who makes him want things he and his brothers swore they’d never have. He has no choice but to help her. But the magical backlash is torture. And without his brothers’ help, it could even be deadly.

Note: When reading some of the reviews I got the impression that this was part of a series but none of her books give a series name or sequence in which they need to be read. So I'm assuming this can be read as a standalone.

When wolf-shifter Kelsey Yates discovers that fourteen-year-old shape-shifter Danny Harding is living with a human adoptive mother, she is sent on a secret mission to protect the pup and get him away from the human.

Successful CEO Rue Harding has no idea that the private teacher she hires for her deaf son isn’t really there to teach him history and algebra—or that Danny and Kelsey are not what they seem to be.

But when Danny runs away from home and gets lost in New York City, Kelsey and Rue have to work together to find him before his first transformation sets in and reveals the shape-shifter’s secret existence to the world.

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
