In My Mailbox




"In My Mailbox" is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi The Story Siren. This meme features books that I have purchased or received in the mail this past week.



List (going in spiral order??!):
 
Do No Evil: An Artemis Agency NovelDo No Evil by Kymberly Goltermann & Ashley L. Goltermann
 
Life in small town Lair has never been so interesting...

Phineas Nobul just got fired. Again. Three years ago Phineas Nobul was at the top of her game as a defense attorney in Los Angeles. When the Lair, New York native returned home for the holidays she was surprised to find herself willing to give it all up for love. Now brokenhearted, nearly penniless, and rooming with a judgmental basset hound,

She has no idea how she's going to pay next month's rent...

Phoebe, the eldest and more mature and responsible Nobul daughter, envies her little sister's free spirit and loathes her unreliability. This is never more the case than when Phoebe finds herself dumped on her wedding day and her little sister nowhere to be found. When Phineas resurfaces and much wine has been consumed, a thought forms itself that will give both sisters the fresh start they so desperately need which involves the heinous idea of Phoebe quitting her successful career in publishing to team up as private investigators with Phineas. Phoebe rejects the idea at first but then sees this as a chance to reinvent her life as well as her strained relationship with her sister. With Phoebe's business background and Phineas' freaky talent of getting information from thin air, the Nobul sisters decide to open Lair's first private investigation service...

The Artemis Agency is barely opened when a corpse is left for the Nobul sisters accompanied with a foreboding warning that has the sisters bunking together. The only problem is that they are just as intrigued as they are terrified. As the bodies begin piling up, Phoebe and Phineas get caught up in a case of conspiracy and scandal that once haunted small-town Lair...

Enter the farthest thing from a White Knight that Lair P.D. has to offer: Officer Cooper Rudo AKA "Officer Yummy." The true-life version of tall, dark, and handsome isn't exactly chivalrous or honorable, but he makes one sister melt with a smile and ends up healing her broken heart. Whether or not he can hang on as he%u2019s thrown into the world of Phineas and Phoebe just might prove if true love does exist...

"Crazy" Grandma Becky also lends a hand to help the girls solve Lair's mysterious past. This trigger-happy, ex-Vegas showgirl who has ties to the mafia just might be the inspiration Phoebe and Phineas need to find out who is behind all the murder in their once-peaceful hometown...

Add in a hunky yet overprotective veterinarian, Greg Watson, who has his own opinions of how things should be done. Affectionate and loving on the outside, on the inside he does his best to control the situation, especially as his relationship with one sister draws him deeper into the mystery...

But this killer is gaining ground and the body count is rising. Mysterious vehicles, dark messages, and a past no one knows about just might prove that in Lair exists one hell of a mystery. 
 
Bloodlover (Power of the Blood)Bloodlover (Power of the Blood)  by Nancy Kilpatrick
Amazon has a different cover.

It's London, England, in the 1960s and anything goes.
 
Julien has been around for almost 500 years, and most of that time he's been alone. To Jeanette, in her shallow world, Julien is just another man to be manipulated. Two of the most popular characters in the vampire series "Power of the Blood" meet in this novel of passion and violence, intrigue and revenge. 
 
 
Amazon has a different cover.
 
In this collection of stories by Nancy Kilpatrick, Canada's Queen of the Undead, we are exposed to the secret world of vampires. 
 
These stories reflect the dark side of humanity including our desires for passion, longevity, power, creativity and control. Nancy Kilpatrick has been likened to Anne Rice and is enormously popular and widely published writer, one of the leaders in the genre.  



 
America In Conflict - His Own Blood Part 2 is an exciting sequel to His Own Blood This Time Is For The Son He Never Knew. 
 
It is a powerful story that has action, adventure, excitement and even an element of love, which makes this book a compelling work of fiction that will keep you enticed to the very last drop, and will hopefully want you to come back sometime in the future to read the anticipated 3rd story, titled: His Own Blood - One Time Too Many. Brief Synopsis: After America had her heart ripped out suffering extreme terrorist attacks, a legendary soldier has to reluctantly fly with a co-pilot from Unit Invincible to help regain his confidence after seeing his colleague die in extreme circumstances. After being shot down in the Korean jungle where his son and the President of America are already trying to escape from, his colleagues land quickly to pull him to safety, only for some of them to be captured shortly afterwards, resulting in, and after finding his daughter's crucifix to have to once more protect His Own Blood. Dedication taken from book: I would like to dedicate this book to the people that were sadly killed, injured or just happened to witness the atrocity of 9/11, 07/07 and our heroes that have served and are still serving in Afghanistan. We shall never forget! And then: One man: Remember the name. One character: Remember the soldier. One iconic actor: Remember the legend who is quite simply the best of the best and probably expendable.  

Assassin's Honor

Assassin's Honor by Monica Burns

A sexy new adventure-packed romance with a paranormal twist-from the award-winning author.

Archeologist Emma Zale sees the past when she touches relics. It's how she uncovered evidence of an ancient order of assassins-the Sicari. When a sinfully dark stranger shows up on her Chicago doorstep demanding an artifact she doesn't have, he drags her into a world where telekinesis and empaths-someone who can sense the emotions of others- are the norm. Now someone wants her dead, and her only hope of survival is an assassin who's every bit as dangerous to her body as he is to her heart. 

Moonshine: A Novel Moonshine: A Novel by Alaya Johnson

 Imagining vampires at the heart of the social struggles of 1920s, Moonshine blends a tempestuous romance with dramatic historical fiction, populated by a lively mythology inhabiting the gritty New York City streets 

Zephyr Hollis is an underfed, overzealous social activist who teaches night school to the underprivileged of the Lower East Side. Strapped for cash, Zephyr agrees to help a student, the mysterious Amir, who proposes she use her charity worker cover to bring down a notorious vampire mob boss. What he doesn’t tell her is why. Soon enough she’s tutoring a child criminal with an angelic voice, dodging vampires high on a new blood-based street drug, and trying to determine the real reason behind Amir’s request—not to mention attempting to resist his dark, inhuman charm.

The Omega PointThe Omega Point  by Whitley Strieber

 2012 came and went.  The world prepared itself for impending disaster--and nothing happened.  Or so it seemed.  

But by 2020, energy from a supernova is disrupting the sun. Solar storms ravage the globe with unprecedented ferocity, and debris in the form of comets and asteroids threaten to end life on earth.  The wealthy of the world hide in vast underground bunkers, but even they know that they cannot survive without a miracle.  

It all comes down to one man—a young psychiatrist named David Ford—who may hold the power to save the world.  Newly employed at the extravagant Acton Clinic, Ford encounters people who seem to understand what's happening… some may even possess an extraordinary knowledge of what’s to come.  One of them is the beautiful and enigmatic Caroline Light, who demands more from Ford than he could possibly give… another is cunning ex-CIA operative Mack Graham, a skilled killer with questionable loyalties…

December 21, 2012 was not the end.  

The end is The Omega Point: where time stops.
