Stacking The Shelves #17

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews .

Encore une belle semaine côté livres. En plus, à l'approche de Noël, je commence à être gâtée! J'adore!

Once again, a beautiful week full of books. Moreover, with Christmas coming, I'm being spoiled! I love it!

One For The Money, Stephanie Plum #1, Janet Evanovich

One Fine Mess
Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer for a department store). Stephanie needs cash - fast - but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family...

One False Move
Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company. She's got no experience. But that doesn't matter. As does the fact that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop Joe Morelli. From the time he first looked up her dress to the time he first got into her pants, to the time Steph hit him with her father's Buick, M-o-r-e-l-l-i has spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e. And now the hot guy is in hot water-wanted for murder...

One for the Money
Abject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills, but being trained in the school of hard knocks by people like psycho prizefighter Benito Ramirez isn't. Still, if Stephanie can nab Morelli in a week, she'll make a cool ten grand. All she has to do is become an expert bounty hunter overnight - and keep herself from getting killed before she gets her man...

Two For The Dough, Stephanie Plum #2, Janet Evanovich

This one's double the fun!

Bounty hunter Stephanie Pum is still learning the ropes at her cousin Vinnie's bail bond office, so when she sets out on the trail of Kenny Mancuso - a suspiciously weatlhy, working class Trenton boy who has just shot his best friend - the stakes are higher than ever. That Mancuso is distantly related to vice cop Joe Morelli - who is trying to beat Stephanie to the punch - only makes the hunt more thrilling...

Taking pointers from her bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and using her pistol packing Grandma Mazur as a decoy, Stephanie is soon closing in on her mark. But Morelli and his libido are worthy foes. And a more sinister kind of enemy has made his first move... and his next move might be Stephanie's last.

Three To Get Deadly, Stephanie Plum #3, Janet Evanovich

A “saintly” old candy store owner is on the lam - and bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life. And with the help of eccentric friends and family, Steph must see to it that this case doesn't end up being her last....

Primal Bounds, Shifter Unbound #2, Jennifer Ashley

When half-Fae, half-Shifter Andrea Gray flees an abusive would-be mate, the only way she is allowed to relocate to the Austin Shiftertown is if a Shifter there claims her as mate. 

Sean Morrissey, the Guardian of his clan and all of Shiftertown, is mateless, lonely, and has a tough job--to send the souls of deceased Shifters into the afterworld. He volunteers to claim her, sight unseen, but doesn't realize that one look at the gray-eyed, dark-haired Andrea will stir the mating frenzy in him. Even though the mate-claim isn't finalized, official, or yet blessed, Sean will do anything to get Andrea into his life and keep her there, forever.

Wild Cat, Shifters Unbound #3, Jennifer Ashley

When Feline Shifter Cassidy Warden saves detective Diego Escobar from plunging to his death, the naked Shifter woman takes his breath away. But she'd been breaking all kinds of human laws, and Diego, to save her from termination, has to promise his department he'll watch over her. 

Diego finds the task harder than he thinks--Cassidy is trying to find out what kind of mysterious hunter killed her mate two years ago, a hunter that could bring danger to all Shifters. Plus Cassidy has scent-marked Diego--essentially telling all other Shifter females, "Hands off." 

Diego risks his personal and professional life getting involved with Cassidy, but he realizes he'll do anything, even confront the deadliest of assassins and his own inner demons, to keep her safe.

Eden en enfer, Chasseuses d'Aliens #2, Gena Showalter

J’avais fait capoter une mission de la plus haute importance. Des tas d’aliens étaient morts, et j’avais bien failli y passer moi aussi. Je n’avais pas réussi à éliminer cette racaille d’EunLi, un esclavagiste sans scrupule. Pire, je n’avais pas su localiser les « portails interdimensionnels » dont se servaient les extraterrestres pour envahir la planète. J’avais été nulle sur ce coup-là, mais ce n’était pas une raison pour que mon patron me force à faire équipe avec Lucius Adaire qui se croit plus malin que tout le monde. Il a beau ressembler à un titan, je le déteste ! Moi, Eden Black, de la race des Raka, je n’ai besoin de personne pour sauver le monde, et surtout pas d’un humain aussi séduisant..

L'Amant Vengeur, La Confrérie de la Dague Noire #7, J.R. Ward

Quand Vhengeance est approché pour tuer le roi des vampires, son mauvais côté meurt d’envie de sauter sur l’occasion. Mais son identité secrète de sympathe est menacée, et il va devoir se tourner vers l’unique lumière de son univers toujours plus sombre : une femelle vampire que la corruption n’a pas atteinte, l’unique chose qui se tienne entre lui et la destruction éternelle.

Troisième Tombe Tout Droit, Charley Davidson #3, Darynda Jones

Vous savez, ces mauvaises choses qui arrivent aux gens bien ? C’est moi.

Moi c’est Café… euh, Charley. Et il me faut plus de café. Le sommeil c’est l’angoisse : Reyes, le fils du Diable chaud comme l’enfer que j’ai emprisonné pour l’éternité, hante mes cauchemars. Je crois qu’il me hait. Mais est-ce que les criminels accepteraient de me laisser tranquille le temps que je règle ça ? Bien sûr que non. Un type veut que j’enquête sur sa femme disparue… sauf que je suis sûre que c’est lui qui a fait le coup. Si j’arrive à m’injecter le café en intraveineuse, je devrais pouvoir le prouver. Sauf si mon grincheux de père revient à la charge pour me faire changer de métier parce que détective privée c’est trop dangereux.
Bon d’accord, je manque de me faire tuer une fois par semaine, mais c’est pas une raison. Je suis super comme détective… et comme Faucheuse !
Café ?

Endgame, Sirantha Jax #6, Ann Aguirre

Regret nothing. 

Sirantha Jax has the J-gene, which permits her to “jump” faster-than-light ships through grimspace. She loves nothing more than that rush, but the star roads have to wait…

Her final mission takes her to La’heng, a planet subjugated during first contact. Since then, the La’hengrin homeworld has been occupied by foreign conquerors.

All that’s about to change.

Now, as part of a grassroots resistance, Jax means to liberate the La’hengrin. But political intrigue and guerrilla warfare are new to her, and this will be the most dangerous game she’s ever played—spies and conspiracies, a war of weapons and hearts, and not everyone is guaranteed to make it out alive...

Midnight,  Dark Age Dawning #2, Ellen Connor

Three years of wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland has stripped Dr. Chris Welsh of humanity and hope. He’s a dangerous man now, full of dark energy and yen for violence. A harrowing loss drove him from his home, and he hasn’t stopped moving since. Grim and sardonic, he never found anything worth sticking around for – until now.

Rosa Cortez runs Valle de Bravo, a haven of civilization amid the chaos of the Change. Soldiers take their orders directly from her–the iron hand within a velvet glove. The last thing she needs is a feral loner upsetting the town’s tentative balance. However, for the good of her people, she lets the sexy doctor stay. He evokes a delicious new longing, but she won’t submit to any man.

Tension rises as bloodthirsty raiders strike again and again, bent on possessing Valle and its resources. Together Chris and Rosa battle hellhounds and dust pirates while also fighting desperate attraction. To save them, love must overcome the pain of the past–and build a future in this brutal Dark Age…

Bodyguard, Shifters Unbound #2.5, Jennifer Ashley

Ronan, the Bear Shifter, takes her to Shiftertown, where she finds that mateless Ronan takes care of Shifters who have no families or clans of their own. Having grown up in foster care herself, Elizabeth can only admire how protective Ronan is, even while she chafes at the confinement. 

But Ronan will only let her leave the safety of Shiftertown if he becomes her 24/7 bodyguard. Elizabeth finally agrees. The trouble is, the sassy human Elizabeth is triggering Ronan's long-buried need to find himself a mate.

Hard Mated, Shifters Unbound #3.5, Jennifer Ashley

A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series. Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown, is stunned when Myka, the best friend of a dying human woman, announces that Spike has fathered a cub. What's more, the mother is giving the boy to Spike to protect and raise. 

Myka, who'd been raised by an abusive stepfather, is not sure that a wild fighter named Spike is the best man to bring up the cute little jaguar cub. She goes to Shiftertown to check out Spike, and finds that the man behind the name is a lonely Shifter who's lost most of his family and is a fierce caretaker to those he has left. 

Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader, and begs Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. He starts to like the sassy Myka, a horse trainer who's not afraid of working with animals, even if they're wildcats who turn into humans. 

When Spike's job puts his cub and Myka in danger, Spike is forced to choose between those to whom he's pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he's come to love.

The Wolf Within, Purgatory #1, Cynthia Eden

FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days--and his nights--tracking real-life monsters. Most humans aren't aware of the vampires and werewolves that walk among them. They don't realize the danger that they face, but Duncan knows about the horror that waits in the darkness. He hunts the monsters, and he protects the innocent. Duncan just never expects to become a monster. But after a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change...and soon he will be one of the very beasts that he has hunted.

Dr. Holly Young is supposed to help Duncan during his transition. It's her job to keep him sane so that Duncan can continue working with the FBI's Para Unit. But as Duncan's beast grows stronger, the passion that she and Duncan have held carefully in check pushes to the surface. The desire that is raging between them could be a very dangerous thing...because Holly isn't exactly human, not any longer. 

As the monsters circle in, determined to take out all of the agents working at the Para Unit, Holly and Duncan will have to use their own supernatural strengths in order to survive. But as they give up more of their humanity and embrace the beasts within them both, they realize that the passion between them isn't safe, it isn't controllable, and their dark need may just be an obsession that could destroy them both. 

The Better To Bite, Howl trilogy #1,  Cynthia Eden

Don’t go into the woods.

Sixteen-year-old Anna Lambert knows that the woods near her new home aren’t safe. She’s seen the wolves that stalk through that dark forest, but Anna doesn’t scare easily.

Anna is cursed–or gifted, depending on how you look at it–with the ability to find anyone or anything that is lost. So when folks start disappearing in the small town of Haven, Anna’s father, the sheriff, has to use her special skills as they begin to hunt for a killer.

But the killer isn’t exactly human. As Anna is pulled deeper into the secrets of Haven–a town that is truly cursed–she finds herself falling for two, equally mysterious boys. With the danger closing in, one of those boys may just turn out to be her savior. And the other? He could be a very big, very bad…beast.

Beware of beasts…and boys…with bite.

Voilà donc une semaine de folie! Et vous, quoi de neuf sur vos étagères?
