    Skin by Karin Tabke **April 2007**
    High-powered and beautiful Francesca Donatello is looking for the sexiest man on the planet to help launch her new magazine, Skin. Gorgeous undercover cop Reese Bronson needs to infiltrate the Donatello organized crime family and learn why Francesca’s mob boss father was assassinated, and this photo shoot is his ticket inside. While Reese sheds his clothes for the camera, he and Francesca share some close encounters of the very personal kind, until someone decides Francesca is the next target. On the run, they dodge bullets and dead bodies—but not each other. From San Francisco to the rugged plains of Wyoming, the two share secrets, shed clothing and inhibitions, and learn that in order to survive they must trust each other.

    Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta **May 2007**
    After living at Casa Dracula for a year, Milagro, who has been hoping for a ring from her vampire boyfriend Oswald Grant, learns that not all vampires are fairly benign. At a Grant family party, Milagro is deeply disturbed by a distant relative who is a member of a Neo-Vamp organization that promotes the fantasy of vampires rather than the reality. Later, when Oswald is out of town, the predatory vamp attacks Milagro, informing her he’s heard her blood is an orgasmic elixir. Milagro fears not only for her life but that she’s becoming a vampire.

    An independent film producer has bought one of her screenplays for a monster flick, so she flees Casa Dracula and joins the film crew. Butsomething supernatural appears to be afoot at the posh desert spa where the crew is living. Sure, health resorts provide their clientele with all kinds of rejuvenating treatments—but could this one be a front for vain vampires who rely on human blood to maintain the glow of youth? And when Milagro finds herself in danger, will Oswald and his bold band of bloodsuckers come through for her—or will she end up on the menu?


    I don't want funny vamps. Well except for Erin McCarthy and that is only because I am so her bitch and haven't read it yet to say I hate it or not. What can I say, I make for a bad bitch but I try! I had a point... oh I don't want funny vamps. I want blood and horror and really bad boys, with a love story.

    How to Abduct a Highland Lord by Karen Hawkins **Jan 2007**
    Determined to save her family from a bloody clan war, Fiona MacLean kidnaps and marries their greatest enemy, Black Jack Kincaid. After a night of debauchery, the unsuspecting rogue is stunned to wake up married to the woman he once loved and has never stopped desiring. With the tense peace between their clans resting on their unlikely union, will Jack redeem himself, rekindle their passion, and win Fiona’s heart—which he finally realizes he has always desired?


    I forgot Karen Hawkins left Avon. Is this her first pocket? I like the summary.

    Madame’s Deception by Renee Bernard **Feb 2007**
    When naïve bookworm and virgin Jocelyn Tolliver learns that her mother is the notorious madame of an elite London brothel she is stunned, but grants her mother’s dying wish and promises to take care of the brothel and its ladies. With the help of her mother’s loyal butler, she transforms herself, and becomes the beautiful but reclusive Madame DeBourcier.

    After an unexpected feud breaks out between the Crimson Belle and a rival brothel, Jocelyn needs a titled lover to gain political clout to protect her housemates so she befriends the handsome and wealthy Lord Colwick, who of course, views this as an invitation to seduce her…


    Will someone PLEASE help this woman get her website back online? oy... rival brothels... that makes me giggle. I think I like the cover, not that it matters since I am too stupid to save it to post.


    A Wicked Gentleman by Jane Feather
    Nell Dagenham and her sister-in-law Ellie, both widowed with young children, decide to spend a month in London after their friend Livia inherits a fabulous house in Cavendish Square. There they meet a determined prospective buyer, who turns out to be Lord Harry Bonham, a charming member of London’s aristocracy.

    An immediate attraction develops between Harry and Nell, but little does she know that Harry works as a code breaker for British Intelligence and his wild interest in her is due to an encryption device he believes is hidden in the house. Though his passion for Nell is real, he can’t reveal his secret life to her without putting her and her friends in danger.


    There is a note on the cover that says 'cover not final', which is good since it looks like the chick is masturbating with a walking cane.


    Tough Enough by Michele Albert
    Will Tiernay is an operative with Avalon, a topsecret, private army of mercenaries who specialize in recovering stolen art and antiquities. Tracking down an art forger, the trail leads Will directly to a former lover, Mia Schaeffer—and though he knows he shouldn’t get involved with a suspect, the sizzle is still as hot as ever. He knows their renewed affair will blow up when Mia discovers who he really is and why he’s suddenly back in her life—but Mia has changed in some surprising ways, too. Despite the danger and the doubts they manage to fall in love. But can they stay alive?


    I liked All Night Long and have Hide in Plain Sight tbr.


    If You Desire by Kresley Cole ***APRIL 2007***
    Highlander Hugh MacCarrick was reckless in his youth, especially since he fell in love in love with heartbreakingly beautiful, rich, and unattainable Jane Weyland, the daughter of his superior.

    Now, ten years later, Hugh is wealthy, an assassin in Her Majesty’s Service, and still secretly in love with Jane. When he receives a message that Jane’s life is in danger and is summoned to protect her, can he resist the overwhelming urge to make her his?


    It is such a good thing I haven't read If You Dare yet cuz damn that is a long time between books in a series. CRAP I didn't put the dates on here.

But upon arrival, she learns her uncle died and a distant relative, Rhodrick Glendower, the Prince of Powys and the Earl of Radnor, now controls her inheritance.

    A man rumored to have a dark past, the prince not only refuses to give Greer her inheritance, he locks her up in his castle. Although Greer is a prisoner, she is free to roam Rhodrick’s castle, and she finds a portrait of her deceased mother. Until Greer can put all the pieces together, she must fight the dangerously strong attraction that’s flared up between her and the rough and lonely prince.


    hmmm I didn't care much for The Hazards of Hunting a Duke but this sounds interesting

    When Paladin warrior Blake Trahern learns that his old friend Judge Nichols has been mysteriously killed, Blake vows to uncover the secrets surrounding his death. Investigating the murder brings him into contact with Nichols’s daughter Brenna, a beautiful and headstrong young woman whose innocent, passionate soul is irresistible to the weary warrior. Danger lurks in the form of traitors on the Paladins’ side of the eternal war against the dark forces of the world, and Blake is determined to protect Brenna, even if it costs him his life. But is he willing to risk his heart?


    I would be happier if she was writing as Pat Pritchard. No one asked me....


    Big, Bad & Barbaric by Jaid Black **March 2007***
    When Lord Mikael Aleksson learns of evidence that could expose the secret civilization of New Sweden to the world above, he leads a mission to the surface to seek out a picture-taking device that may have captured images of the neo-Vikings.

    Anti-government activist Holly Compton always has an eye out for trouble, and when her colleague Drake Simon mysteriously disappears, Holly’s certain that a government conspiracy is afoot. Tracking her friend to rural Alaska, Holly finds photographs of oddly clothed, heavily muscled men—the same men who are now after her! Struggling to
    stay one step ahead of her pursuers, Holly is determined to escape whatever fate befell Drake. But can she resist the passion that sparks in her hunter’s eyes?


    OMG at that title... hee


    The Marcelli Princess by Susan Mallery **Feb 2007**
    The beloved Marcelli family saga wouldn’t be complete without Mia’s story. Although she is the youngest of the family, her life is certainly not lacking in drama! When the father of Mia’s son—the man she believed died years ago— suddenly turns up in her bedroom claiming he’s someone else entirely, Mia’s in for an even bigger surprise. It turns out her son is the heir of the Crown Prince of Calandria and he’s come back to claim what’s his. But the bigger question is, does he also want to reclaim Mia’s heart?


    hmmm this sounds like it could be a Harlequin. Think she got mixed up? I have never read her pocket books.

    Who in the heck is buying all these movie tie in books and wrestling stuff? Star Trek - check, X-men - check, Spiderman - check, Hellboy - check, and more I forget. I had no clue they were so popular. Who knew...

    V.C. Andrews is one of the most famous and beloved authors of fiction today, and her popularity continues to soar. There are more than 100 million copies of her books in pring, and she has been translated into 22 foreign languages.

    Someone please tell pocket SHE IS DEAD. Thank you.

    1. I am tempted to buy Tabke's book just for the controversy that would arise if I didn't like it but I'll abstain.

      I hope Jane Feather starts writing about people who love each other instead of cold people who marginally like each other. Like a sucker, though, I'll be buying that one.

      I am a little interested in the second in the Dark Protector series but the first one kind of blew chunks, imo.

      The rest. . . well, we'll see.

    2. Soo...what does it say about me that I haven't even heard of most of these authors (with the exception of Tabke, who Jane introduced me to..hehehe)? Methinks I'm behind??

    3. The Susan Mallery book is a single title despite the odd harlequin presents sounding title. It's the fourth in a series. I didn't care for the last one The Marcelli Bride much so I don't plan on getting The Marcelli Princess.
      And Karen Hawkins left Avon???? OK then, I'll give it a try. (heh heh).
      As for Michelle Albert (Jerrott) you simply must try Absolute Trouble!!

    4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't know Karen Hawkins left Avon! I'm even more curious about that one now.

      The Marcelli Bride is languishing in my TBR and you aren't inspiring me to pick it up, Kristie. :o) Still, since I SO her sheik books, etc. I'll probably pick up the new one.

    5. So, Avon lost Kleypas and Hawkins and gained Loretta Chase. I have to give them props for LC but if she starts down the path of Lorraine Heath, I'll have to do something drastic and not a little illegal.

    6. I am actually interested in a historical that has no paranormal stuff! Renee Bernard's debut sounds really good--she's in a antho with a couple of big authors, if I remember right.

    7. milady: she is in Sabrina Jeffries antho for her series in Dec.

      Jane: I do so wish Heath would leave england. LoS is Avon so there is hope for Chase. Maybe...

      C2: do blog if you read it ;)

      kristie wasn't that Avon as well.

      Holly: You know I have blogged about most of these people at one time or another. bad holly, bad bad

      Jane: I so expect you to get it. You know you want to.
