In My Mailbox!


Books that have arrived "In My Mailbox" or that I just went to the store and bought.

This weeks haul wasn't that much, but one of these books had me dancing around like a fool. Can you guess which one?

Born of Night (The League, Book 1)

 
Awakened from a drugged sleep in a cold cell, the Princess Kiara finds herself a prisoner of the merciless marauders who threaten her father's planetary kingdom. Miraculously, a rescuer appears, but behind his fearsome mask is the handsome face of a dark avenger whose outlaw touch sets her very soul aflame.

They call him Nemesis. Once a renegade assassin, now a warrior-soldier sworn to protect the innocent from the ruthless mercenaries throughout the galaxies, he has many enemies. Besieged on every side, he knows he is a danger to the beauty he saves from certain death. But the lovely Kiara stirs a hungry longing in his battle-hardened heart, spurring him into a struggle that could restore his honor and heal the wounds of a beleaguered empire -- or tear Kiara from his arms forever....
 
Break: Angels and Demons Break: Angels and Demons by Tarra Blaize

Don-t bother looking for trouble. It-ll find you.
An Angels and Demons story.
Layla Roads- life is a laundry list of irony. Trailer trash. High school dropout. Beautiful liar. Highly skilled computer hacker. And one additional, extraordinary gift: the ability to see the demons and angels engaged in a ferocious battle on the urban streets at night.

When kidnappers hold her brother, Layla finds herself up to her neck in a plot to bring down a powerful blood demon. A crude, sexual, violent demon who kills without flinching, pushes her buttons, and looks at her with too-knowing eyes. What-s worse is she feels an answering tug of desire.

It doesn-t take Gethin long to figure out he has a pretty traitor on his hands-and that she-s being blackmailed. As a lone human female her quest to save her brother is hopeless-just like the attraction between them. For even if Gethin helps her save all she holds dear, she can never be his-
Warning: Includes a devilish demon, a heroine caught between a rock and a hard place, several magical battles, and the steamy backseat of a car.
 
LingerLinger by Maggie Stiefvater
 
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past...and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves...and is nonetheless drawn to Cole. At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love--the light and the dark, the warm and the cold--in a way you will never forget.

Urgh I'm so jealous of your Linger ARC! I loved Shiver :)

I hadn't heard of Born of Night before and it looks really good. You're really, really terrible for my book budget...
