It's my favorite day of the week, Tuesday, and you all know what that means.....NEW RELEASE DAY!! This is the day that most bookstores put the new books out on the shelves, or finally allow us to download to our e-reader of choice. This Tuesday was kind of an extravaganza for me and has thrown my "oh, pretty shiny" problem into overdrive. I can't decide if I want to go to Budapest and hang out with the Lords from waaayyy down under, or take a trip back in time to hang with some really sexy highlanders, or how about a trip to New York and do shots of Blissky with the staff of McKay Security, heck I might want to head down to North Carolina and get me some BBQ.
Here is just a small sampling of the books that came out today:
The Sexiest Vampire Alive, Kerrelyn Sparks, Avon
The secret is out . . . Vampires do exist!
When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it’s up to “young” vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter.
Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father’s state dinners. She’s dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she’ll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world—with a vampire. Her Armani-clad escort may be Undead, but he still makes her heart race. And the greatest danger won’t be the predatory hordes lying in wait for them; it will be her undying desire for the Sexiest Vampire Alive.
The Darkest Surrender, Gena Showalter, Harlequin
Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own-steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter-the love neither had thought possible...
Spider's Revenge, Jennifer Estep, Pocket
Old habits die hard. And I plan on mur?der?ing some?one before the night is through.
Killing used to be my reg?u?lar gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spi?der, assassin-for-hire. And I was very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly mat?ters: Mab Mon?roe, the dan?ger?ous Fire ele?men?tal who mur?dered my fam?ily when I was thir?teen.
Oh, I don’t think the mis?sion will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more prob?lem?atic than expected. The bitch knows I’m com?ing for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters she hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keep?ing Bria safe is my first pri?or?ity. Tak?ing Mab out is a close sec?ond.
Good thing I’ve got my pow?er?ful Stone and Ice magic — and my irre?sistible lover Owen Grayson — to watch my back. This bat?tle has been years in the mak?ing, and there’s a chance I won’t sur?vive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s com?ing with me...no mat?ter what I have to do to make that happen.

A warrior is caught between family loyalty and forbidden love in book two of bestselling author Maya Banks’s sensual new trilogy featuring three indomitable Highlanders.

But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.
An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric’s keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh.
