Book Description

The wall between our world and that of vengeful spirits has protected humanity for more than 400 years. It’s about to come crashing down. Ellie Lancaster has lived her whole life by the site of the mysterious Lost Colony of Roanoke, the Virginia settlement that vanished without a trace around 1590. Only the descendants of the two men who banished the spirits of an enemy tribe from the material realm know what really happened to the colony. Ellie is one of those descendants—a Curse Keeper. Her father took pains to teach her what he knew of the curse and the responsibilities of its guardians. He taught her that if the two Curse Keepers ever meet, the curse will be lifted, the gate will open, and the raging Native American spirits will be unleashed to seek their revenge.

Despite her father’s seriousness, Ellie has always taken the legend for a harmless fairy tale. Until she meets the darkly handsome, but downright infuriating, Collin Dailey and realizes everything she was told is true. For when they meet, it’s like the air is sucked from the room. Collin’s presence is electrifying… and it’s not just attraction Ellie feels, but the inexorable pull toward her destiny. The prophecy is real, and now Ellie and Collin must battle supernatural forces and their loathing—and passion—for each other to set things right.

The Curse Keepers are all that stand between the world and its destruction.

After a three-century “time out,” legendary vampire Niccolo DiConti vows to fulfill an ancient prophecy and, along the way, defeat the demented queen of the damned.

On vacation in sultry Mexico, biologist Helena Strauss makes the discovery of a lifetime when she meets Niccolo-and finds herself caught in a world of supernatural secrets and dangerous delights. Even more shocking is that he seems to know everything about her and claims her as his true immortal companion. Sure, she can’t take her eyes-or mouth-off this gorgeous, perfect being. But can a hot-blooded gal like her really settle down with a cold-hearted vampire?

  1. Just my TBR is being fed this week…no actual purchases (at least not on release day)…that might help me catch up a little.

    • Enjoy it while it lasts because December is going to be a busy month for new releases but hopefully you can ask for a few of ‘em for Xmas.

  2. I got, World After – I highly recommend the first book, Angelfall if you haven’t had a chance to listen. I know is a YA title, but I think it’s dark enough that you might enjoy it..LOL

    • I’ll keep it in mind for when I’m picking my next YA read, thanks!

  3. My book budget is safe for another week. LOL

    • LOL You wouldn’t want to have to write another budget post about how miserably you failed. ;)

  4. I”m quite disappointed w/ CClare’s Bane Chronicles. I was expecting Bane’s series would be raunchy and more adult given his character. I only read the first 1 and it was boring as a spelling bee contest and very Juvenile/MG. I may be wrong, the succeeding ones might be better but book 1 left a bad taste in my mouth I won’t pick it up. Plus at $2.99 each (50 pages give or take), not worth my pennies.

    • $2.99 for 50 pages?? Ouch! Sorry to hear that it was a disappointment.
