Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won’t need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

  1. Patricia BriggsMercy Thompson series.night brokenBook Description
    Publication Date: March 11, 2014
    #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.

  1. Kat Richardson -Greywalker Novels.revenantBook Description
    Publication Date: August 5, 2014
    Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And these abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases….

Turmoil, sickness, and destruction are sweeping through Europe—and its effects are being felt all the way across the world in Seattle. Harper Blaine and her lover, Quinton, suspect that Quinton’s father, James Purlis—and his terrifying Ghost Division—are involved.

Following a dark trail of grotesque crimes and black magic across the Old World, the pair slowly draws closer to their quarry. But finding and dismantling the Ghost Division won’t be enough to stop the horror that Purlis has unwittingly set in motion.

An ancient and forgotten cult has allied with Quinton’s mad father. And their goals are far more nightmarish than Harper and Quinton—or even Purlis—could ever imagine.

The pursuit leads to Portugal, where the desecrated tomb of a sleeping king and a temple built of bones recall Harper’s very first paranormal case and hold clues to the cult’s true intentions. Harper and Quinton will need all the help they can get to avert a necromantic cataclysm that could lay waste to Europe and drag the rest of the world to the brink of war.

“Laugh-out-loud funny–I loved it!” –New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison
The trouble with humans is that they’re far too sensitive. Forget you put a woman in the local jail for a few months–and she takes it so personally! And yet she is the one trying to assassinate the queen. And now I’m trapped with Elina Shestakova of the Black Bear Riders of the Midnight…gods! That endless name!

But what am I to do? I am Celyn the Charming with direct orders from my queen to protect this unforgiving female.

Even more shocking, this unforgiving female is completely unimpressed by me. How is that even possible? But I know what I want and, for the moment, I want her. And I’m sure that she, like all females, will learn to adore me. How could she not when I am just so damn charming?

TELL ME, WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU READ MORE THAN THREE TIMES?

free_books_online3.jpg

This question is kinda hard for me, for I have read a few more than 3 times. Some of the books are a little old. So here they are.

 


Book Description
Publication Date: October 13, 2009
The Wolf

Noble Aislinn grieves as the Iron Wolf and his minions storm through her beloved Darkenwald. And she burns with malice for the handsome Norman savage who would enslave her. . .even as she aches to know the rapture of the conqueror′s kiss

The Dove

For the first time ever, mighty Wulfgar has been vanquished–and by a bold and beautiful princess of Saxon blood. He must have the chaste, sensuous enchantress who is sworn to his destruction.And he will risk life itself to nurture with tender passion a glorious union born in the blistering heat of hatred and war.

 

I actually read this one about 7 times along with FLAME AND THE FLOWER AND SHANNA.

Another book that I have read more than 3 times is :

 

 

“Eddings’ BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight.”
Piers Anthony
Long ago, the Storyteller claimed, in this first book of THE BELGARIAD, the evil god Torak drove men and Gods to war. But Belgarath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected men of the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe.
But Garion did not believe in such stories. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, how could he know that the Apostate planned to wake dread Torak, or that he would be led on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by those he loved–but did not know…?

I think I read this one 4 times.

Another book would be :

Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

This is one AWESOME book!! We all know that a lot happened in MAGIC RISES , and Aunt B died. Well the shit hits the fan again. Curran the Beast Lord has to go out-of-town to handle some Pack business, and Kate is left to take care of business with the Conclave between the People and the Pack. Kate and the People have almost closed up business with an amicable solution, when Hugh shows up. We all know that this is not going to be all cute puppies and roses with this meeting. Kate is basically shell-shocked, because she thinks that he died when the castle burned and he had a broken back; courtesy of Curran; that prevented him from escaping. He shows up with that smugness that you just want to beat out of him. He is only there just a few minutes when all hell breaks loose and Kate and the Pack are on the run for their life.

During all this Kate is worried about Curran, because she believes that it was a setup to get him out-of-town. After all the running Kate finally meets her Dad (Roland), and the battle begins. Kate finally lets down her barriers to keep her power contained, and we see an even more Bad-Ass Kate. MAGIC BREAKS  has non-stop action, laughter, and tear jerking drama. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.  I give MAGIC BREAKS 5/5 STARS. It is definitely worth reading.
