What's on the Reading Radar? #wishlist #TBR

What am I up to? Cramming all the edits in that I can to get Constant to beta readers. I've let everything else fall by the wayside in order to get this finished. I wrote Constant in pieces and I have never done that before. It is a pain in the butt and I will never do it again. I might be just a tad nervous. This is the first book I've finished in more than a year. I'll see what the betas say, but first I have to finish this final rounds of edit!!

Title: Archangel's Assassin
Author(s): Barbara Elsborg
Length: 275 pages

Genre: Romance / Angels & Demons / Holiday / Gay /


Blurb: He wants to forget

West is an archangel’s assassin delivering justice to supernatural creatures who break the law. Not a straightforward job because he also has to absorb the memories of those he kills. Even worse, West is breaking the law himself in an attempt to free his brother from hell. If he doesn’t succeed before his archangel boss finds out, West will be joining his sibling.

He wants to remember

A young guy wakes in a London park with his memories gone. He has no idea who he is, or where he comes from. A bracelet engraved with the single word Tao is the only clue to his identity. With no sign of his memory returning, he drifts into a life on the streets. Begging is his only way to survive.

Two worlds collide

When Tao returns West’s stolen wallet, West offers to buy him a coffee. Tao delights in the chance to sit down with a good-looking guy until his instincts tell him to run away. Fast. West is surprised when Tao flees, considering how much he’d been mentally urging him to stay. Is he losing his touch or is Tao more than a scruffy young man down on his luck?

Only one way to find out.

Blurb: Kir doesn't want a relationship. Nor does he want to be dealing with magical attacks. Seems like he's in trouble on both counts.

Mage Kir Davies has sworn off romance -- until he runs into Zach Kassel at his local climbing wall. But when dangerous magical emanations are showing up across his patch of London, getting involved with a non-mage is surely just too risky.

Zach will admit that he was a little surprised to be attacked by semi-sentient mud on a first date, but for Kir, he's prepared to get over it. And to do his best to help — except for the bit where Kir seems to think that he's personally responsible for looking after everything and everyone all by himself. That's more than a little annoying.

As the magical attacks get worse, Kir must find out what's happening, and learn to accept help from those around him -- before whatever is rising underground takes out him, Zach, and half of London.

Title: Serpent's Touch
Series: (The Last Serpent Book 1)
Author(s): Tansey Morgan
Length: 168 pages
Publisher: Supernal Publishing (October 15, 2017)

Genre: Romance / Dark Fantasy / Reverse Harem / Paranormal / Urban Fantasy /


Blurb: The thing about fairy tales is, there's usually a catch. This one was no exception.

The day I, Lilith Palmer, stopped being the Hot Topic girl and became something else started as any other, but ended in the car of a devilishly handsome man whose net-worth was probably higher than the entire neighborhood I lived in; not my usual Tuesday night. That, however, was only the start of the weird path I was about to set off on; a path that would take me to a place where reality collides with magic, where I find out everything I knew about the world I lived in was a lie, and where I'm the only woman present.

There are five of them - five of the most interesting, sexy, and probably dangerous men I have ever met. They live in a mansion in the middle of rural Germany, a mansion protected by magic. And they tell me not only do they have supernatural abilities, but that I have them too, and they're here to help pull them out of me. Sounds like a dream, until that catch comes up.

Supernaturals are being hunted down for the energy they possess, myself especially, and if they don't act fast to bring me into the fold, a fate worse than death awaits all of us.

But triggering my supernatural side to come out won't be easy, not before I'm ready, and when the hunters step up their game and the window starts to close, it'll take everything I have in me just to stay alive; no matter how many men would put their lives on the line to protect me.

Serpent's Touch is the first book in a brand new paranormal REVERSE HAREM series by Tansey Morgan. If you love the paranormal romance and urban fantasy genres, and want to read something that not only straddles the line between both, but introduces not one, but five love interests, then this is the book for you.

And then there's De'vii's alluring charge.

Caliebb Renaveri is harmless and quiet, yet also manages to stir the wild in every dog in De'vii's pack. He can't afford to allow the wildness to take over, nor can he abandon the job. But Caliebb is more than he appears and stronger than he seems and by the time De'vii realizes just how dangerous Caliebb truly is he stands to lose everything he holds dear: his mind, his life and his pack.

The exciting beginning to The Wilds Duology.
