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

What am I doing? Well, work wise, I ended up spending this week on Assassin's Retirement. Other than that, not much else other than super cold weather and me wrenching my back. Sitting in the office for long periods of time isn't happening. Just hurts too much. LOL! Tough week all around. 

Title: Dark Sun Rising
Author: Skye Anderson
Length: 230 pages

Notes: I did find this under the LGBT romance section but blurb does not read like it is a romance.

Blurb: Phoenix could remember a time when his life was simple, although looking back on it, it didn't really feel like his life at all. It was far too happy and carefree, he had parents and friends and his life wasn't about running. That all changed when another Alien race, the Elarks, invaded their home planet, murdering almost every one of their kind and destroying their planet completely. Sending him and nine other special children, chosen by bodies of the universe and their mentors to Earth to hide, run and silently protecting their new home, never to see each other again. 

Now the Elarks had found their hiding space and have narrowed in on the group, killing them off one by one in an attempt to destroy everything they had come to love once more.

And it lies with Phoenix to stop them.

I Needed to Win.

They Needed to Die.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home.

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen's personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge.

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

Blurb: A Gay Paranormal Harem Romance

What do you get when you mix a dragon, a vampire, a griffin, a mage, and a human? Sawyer Smith’s life sounds like a punchline, but the mates he’s come to love are no joke. They’re fierce and wonderful, protecting him from the outside forces trying to destroy him. Add in a reluctant hippocamp and an egotistical fae prince, and Sawyer has his hands full in more ways than one.

Sawyer is closer than ever to fulfilling the ancient prophecy of the Chosen One, but the bonds between him and his newest guardians are giving him doubts. The rules are changing, and Sawyer has to adapt quickly if he’s going to keep up, especially after he’s whisked away to the land of the fae, a place with cryptic customs. One misstep could very well lead to his death.

Navigating the waters of his newest relationship is tricky enough without the encroaching dangers. Something terrifying is heading Sawyer’s way, threatening not only his life, but everything he’s built with the mates he loves. Despite their concerns, Sawyer is ready to make sacrifices, because there’s next to nothing he wouldn’t do to keep them safe.

Title: Shadowmancer
Series: Paladim Charm
Author: Devin Harnois
Publisher: October Night Publishing (March 5, 2019)

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Bisexual / Mage / 

Notes: I jumped the gun on this one. I didn't save this with the release date but it is up on preorder. It releases March 5th

Blurb: Marius Everhart is something even mages fear — a shadowmancer. His power marks him as cursed, a creature belonging to the Queen of Shadows. Marius escaped her realm with his memories corrupted and his sanity in tatters, managing to live a fragile, lonely existence at the edges of society.

Some might call Ayodele Sauveterre delusional. He prefers the term “optimistic”. With his homeland in danger from invasion, Ayodele will do anything to protect it, even recruit a shadowmancer. Marius’s incredible power and gentle nature make him a perfect addition to Paladin Charm, a new mage guild dedicated to helping rather than exploiting the non-magical populace. The fact that handsome Marius also warms Ayodele’s bed is a wonderful bonus.

With support from Ayodele and his new friends in the guild, Marius begins to heal. He’s also quickly falling for the alluring mage, but Ayodele struggles with what’s forming between them. Past experience left Ayodele flippant but guarded, and Marius’s open honesty unnerves him.

As they grow closer, Paladin Charm prepares for a battle with impossible odds. And in the darkness, the Queen of Shadows waits to reclaim Marius and drag him back into a nightmare.

What is that supposed to mean? Those are the words Lucas Daniels hears before stumbling through the brass doors of the elegant Club Dyavol, a club that seems to appear out of nowhere. The club is his last hope of getting a job to escape his predatory stepfather’s home.

Who would dare enter a vampire’s sanctuary uninvited?

Count Konstantin “the Wolf” Volk may be weakened by a curse, but he is still a primal predator. And when he sees a young man venture into his club, bypassing all of his magical and physical protections, more than just his curiosity is aroused.

Is there more to this meeting than simple chance?

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Bisexual / Poly / 


Blurb: Unlike most art students, Sara Obsidian doesn’t want to be a vampire. No, not even if they have recruiting booths on campus. She’s fine being human, thank you very much.

But she might change her mind when a dorky vampire with a mild action movie obsession suddenly sits next to her at a movie theater. To make matters even weirder, he asks if she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend, to hide the fact that he’s actually dating a vampire from another faction—which is a big no-no.

There’s no way she’s going to fall for him, or anything. And there’s even less way that she’ll fall for his boyfriend. And of course she’s not going to get interested in that guy she runs into on the street…

Sara Obsidian is a perfectly normal human.

**This boxset contains the first three books in The Rose Vampires, a medium-burn reverse harem romance set in a world where everyone knows about vampires—and groans about their constant art squabbles. Prepare for shenanigans, kink, and lots of hot guys with fangs.**

Book one: Crimson Bite
Despite her protests, Sara gets pulled into the orbit of two vampire boyfriends… and she may get more than she ever expected out of the deal they make.

Book two: Vermilion Kiss
When obstacles are put between Sara and what she wants most, her desires are only reaffirmed. And when she runs into Kestrel, a very different kind of vampire, she may find herself with an unexpected ally.

Book three: Ashen Escape
Dating one vampire is hard. Dating three vampires is a logistics nightmare. So when fall break comes up, Sara decides to rent a beach house for her and her guys—and she might just find out things about them that she didn’t expect.

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
