Yeah, that’s right. This week is all about HOT SPELL (and a little about DEMON ANGEL). If you haven’t yet entered the contest to win a copy, now is a good time to do so. Or anytime between now and next Sunday.
But the book isn’t just about me! HOT SPELL includes a novella “The Countess’s Pleasure” by Emma Holly that is set in the same universe as THE DEMON’S DAUGHTER and her new release PRINCE OF ICE (which got an awesome review over at AAR). A steampunky universe — Victorian England meets a technologically advanced demon culture — and the result is pretty damn fantastic. And, did I mention, way hawt?
And then there’s Lora Leigh‘s “The Breed Next Door”, which is part of her uber-popular Breed series (available at Ellora’s Cave). Set a few decades in the future, these genetically engineered Breeds (HOT SPELL kicks off the start of the Lion Breeds) are fighting for their lives and their humanity. Tarek, the hero of “The Breed Next Door”, also shows up in Leigh’s single title follow-up, MEGAN’S MARK, which is available now. HARMONY’S WAY, the second single title in the series, releases this December.
And, for some sweet vamp/wolf luvin’, there’s Shiloh Walker‘s “The Blood Kiss”, a Romeo and Juliet story (but with, of course, a much happier ending.) Though not set in the same world as her popular Hunter’s series at various e-pubs, it’s a great introduction to her style — particularly if you haven’t read her yet. (Okay, really, who hasn’t that’s been ordering from e-pubs or buying EC’s print versions?) Walker’s paranormal Hunter’s series (shifters, vamps and witches) for Berkley kicked off this summer with HUNTING THE HUNTER, and in April, HUNTERS: HEART AND SOUL will be available from Berkley Heat.
