Title: How Beauty Saved the Beast
Series: (Tales of the Underlight, #2)

Author: Jax Garren
Genre: urban fantasy romance
Release date: February 11, 2013 by Carina Press


Jolie Benoit left her old life behind to become an agent of the Underlight. Training under Sergeant Wesley Haukon, she’s honing her combat skills, all the while coping with the intense sexual attraction she feels for Hauk. She keeps their friendship casual, but when his high school sweetheart transfers into their division, Jolie finds herself grappling with jealousy.

The Underlight gave Hauk a purpose, but he can’t escape his past completely. The physical and emotional scars from the fire that killed seven fellow Army Rangers will mark him forever. Jolie sends his protective instincts into overdrive, but he’s convinced he’ll never be worthy of her love.

Hauk is determined to keep Jolie from harm. But when the Order of Ananke ambushes them with a new weapon that neutralizes Hauk, making him vulnerable, it’s Jolie who must tap into her hidden strengths to rescue him—or risk losing him forever…

Ya ya ya! It’s definitely a YA week. Books in a wide range of subgenres are coming out, including a number of series titles (unsurprising, given the popularity of serialization in YA). Of note is Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons, the newest New Article 5 book; happy days for many people on account of Lauren DeStefano’s newest book in the Chemical Garden series, Sever

A few new releases that caught my eye included The Best of All Possible Worlds, a science fiction entry that has the literary stylings, apparently, of Ursula LeGuin; The Water Witch by Juliet Dark follows up the popular Demon Lover, (which I was told had a cliffhanger…hence the reason why I have a copy of the book sitting on my book shelf, awaiting the release of this very book); and Hailey Edwards’ latest fantasy romance, A Cast of Shadows. Looking forward to revisiting that world, although I think it’s probably time for a reread of the preceding books…

. . .

Find that new series installment that you’ve been waiting for? Do you ever reread backlist series titles when you get the latest book after an extended period of time?

    Um, yes. All the time. I am always re-reading. Sometimes just mu favorite scene – sometimes the whole book.

  • Jane February 12, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Yes, I do. I’m doing that with Julie James’ FBI/US Attorney series to prepare for the release of Love Irresistibly.

    Some gorgeous covers this week, but the books/storylines themselves are leaving me cold.

    As for your question: yes, I often reread.

    Nothing for my shelves this week, pfff. I do re-read books, but not because I am anticipating the new story.
