Once blissfully in love . . .
Poppy Lane is keeping secrets. Her powerful gift has earned her membership in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, but she must keep both her ability and her alliance with the Society from her husband, Winston. Yet when Winston is brutally attacked by a werewolf, Poppy’s secrets are revealed, leaving Winston’s trust in her as broken as his body. Now Poppy will do anything to win back his affections . . .
Their relationship is now put to the ultimate test.
Winston Lane soon regains his physical strength but his face and heart still bear the scars of the vicious attack. Drawn into the darkest depths of London, Winston must fight an evil demon that wants to take away the last hope of reconciliation with his wife. As a former police inspector, Winston has intelligence and logic on his side. But it will take the strength of Poppy’s love for him to defeat the forces that threaten to tear them apart.

Yep….that’s one hell of a list this week, ladies and gents. Usually it would be pared down much more, but it was just so dang tough cutting things out. Lots of anticipated titles are being released this week–how does one choose? Alas, after #45, I decided to stop adding items. So enjoy! (And, sorry!)
This week’s mix of titles is a bit like a Rorschach test; everything is varied enough that you’ll notice the trended genres if you’re in tune with it. What jumped out at me was the offering of historical romances. From the more traditional to the paranormal to the extra spicy, there’s no shortage if that genre this week. On the other side there are some neat-looking contemporaries. A romance with a sports theme featuring bullfighting is a first….but that’s what you’ll find in Fierce Pride by Phoebe Conn.
A number of long awaited series titles are up this week: Black City (Black Wings, #5); Winterblaze (Darkest London, #3); Mountain Echoes (Walker Papers, #8); Edge of Dawn (Midnight Breed, #11); Immortal Ever After (Argeneau, #18); Calculated in Death (In Death, #5,674,813…you go, girl); and so on. There are a number of new series titles sprinkled in, but this is definitely the week of the tried-and-true series.
. . .
So, what’s your poison/pleasure this week (surely there’s something in the mix)? Are there any series that you’ve been reading for years (or, at least, several installments)?
