Friday, June 3, 2011


I know I sound like a broken record, but May was a crazy, crazy month:

My four-year-old graduated Pre-K.
My 10-year-old had her (belated) birthday party.
My birthday was May 11.
Mother's Day was three days before that.
I drove to Houston and back to meet Charlaine Harris.
My 17-year-old graduated from high school. YAY!!!
Then we had to go to the two-day orientation for college.
And to top it all off, my day job was craaaazy busy - lots of overtime this month.

What does all that mean for you?
It means I have a few May releases I didn't get to review:

From the author's website:
He's had centuries to dream of her... Mis-adventurous historian Bree Kirkland discovers a one hundred fifty year old warrior buried in a crypt behind her house. But Faelan, the warrior, isn’t dead. When this chauvinistic Scottish Warrior awakes, he has no choice but accept the help of this modern-day woman who’s rescued him, but she’s more fearsome than the demon trying to kill him.

From Goodreads:
Second in line, first in love
A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost.... Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it . . . and when it comes to passion, they refuse to accept second best.

Searching for hidden treasure, finding forbidden fantasy.
London's most sensual former courtesan, Viola Whedon, is incapable of being seduced-she does the seducing. Until she meets Leonidas Vaughn. Her salacious memoirs have made her the target of half the lords in England, and Vaughn is the only man she can turn to. When he promises to protect her-and to make her beg for his touch-the alluring beauty finds both offers impossible to refuse.

Leonidas Vaughn secretly believes Viola possesses a fortune given to his family by the King of France. So the strong and sexy Vaughn charms his way into Viola's life . . . and her bed. But when their arrangement is consummated, he'll experience pleasure far beyond his wildest fantasies-and realize his heart may need the most protection of all.

Face of Danger
~Roxanne St. Claire

Mass Market Paperback: 432 pages
Publisher: Forever
Publish Date: May 1, 2011
ISBN-10: 0446566578
ISBN-13: 978-0446566575
ASIN: B0047Y0EX8

From Goodreads:
Private investigator Vivi Angelino has never met a risk she wouldn't take-and her latest client, a starlet with a madman on her heels, gives Vivi the perfect opportunity to walk on the wild side. That is, as long as she can make sure a certain overprotective, overly gorgeous FBI agent stays out of her way-and out of her fantasies.

Special Agent in Charge Colt Lang is not about to stand back and watch Vivi dangle herself as bait for a serial killer. Yet trying to rein her in means throwing his well-worn rulebook-and his iron self-control-to the wind . . . and taking the chance that his heart will become collateral damage in an already perilous case. Because a woman who can't stop searching for the truth is impossible to resist-even when every discovery she makes brings them closer to a calculating murderer with nothing to lose.

  25. What a wonderfully eventful month. Happy belated birthday and congratulations on the milestones of your children; now for the envy - You Met Charlaine Harris - what a thrill, I have been following her since the A. Teagarten series originally came out. Maybe you can take a quick breath (I know summers here three children who am I kidding). Thank you for the opportunity to win this giveaway. I have not read any of these books and Face of Danger sounds especially ineresting, but I am more than happy with any or hey all - okay I admit it, I am greedy and addicted.
