Comig sooin: Dark Taste of Rapture by Gena Showalter

Only a few days left until the release of Gena Showalter's Dark Taste of Rapture, which is the latest installment in the Alien Huntress series. Gena is one of my favourite authors and though I prefer the Lords of the Underworld series, I can't wait to read this book! And also, she's making a contest on her blog and two winner will get a signed copy of DToR, so take a look at the contest here!

Gena Showalter
Dark Taste of Rapture
Alien Huntress series

With one caress, he can give unforgettable pleasure…or unending pain...

Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped -- and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he’s determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable. For the first time, his stone-cold resistance is tested. But to be with her, he risks destroying her.

When a wealthy businessman is murdered in New Chicago’s seediest district, the two are partnered, and there’s no escaping what they both want: each other. Yet neither Hector nor Noelle knows what to fear more—the killer case, or their own lethal desires. . . .

You can read an excerpt on Gena's blog or you can pre-order your own copy of the book: AmazonBares and NoblesBook Depository

My three entries to a cover contest

I've just entered in a cover-creating contest on a Hungarian blog with these covers. The author, Hédi is publishing her first book soon and is doing this competition to get a cover for it. Fénylő Lelkek (Shining Souls) may be out with the winner cover and the winner will get a signed copy of it :] I know, I know, these three covers are totally - I mean, TOTALLY - different, but I haven't got a chance to read the whole story yet, so I wanted to make sure one of the covers will fit to the plot :)

But what I've read, I loved it. I can imagine how exciting she was about her first book :] I just wanted to share you my covers and I hope you'll like them!

Jeaniene Frost's Vlad & Leila book has a title!

Okay, officially it's my first book post and I'm so glad it's about Jeaniene Frost and her new book series. She's my favourite author ever and I can't wait to get my hands on Vlad and Leila's own book, which now has a title! We've known that the title of the their series will be Night Prince (because of Vlad, of course).

Once Burned

Yep, that's it. I don't know about you, but I LOVE it! And I was wondering whether this unknown Leila will be a "simple" mortal or a powerful immortal, but no... She will be a mortal with dark powers! Oh my God, I can't wait!

And now I'm counting the days until March 29, 2012... :)

Hi, guys!

This is my first post on the blog :) Reviews and posts are coming soon. I hope you will enjoy them :)
