Eagerly Anticipating: Is It May Yet?

It’s that time again, already. Time for another Eagerly Anticipating post. Who is looking forward to May?

*Scheduled for release May 1st*

Embrace of the Damned by Anya Bast
– I’ve only read one other book by this author, Midnight Enchantment, which made me interested in trying something else by her. Given that this is the start of a new series, I think I’ll take the opportunity to give her another try.

Heart of Brass by Kate Cross – I haven’t read this author before, but I’m intrigued by the plot summary. I always like when the hero and heroine are already married. Of course the hero doesn’t remember being married, but it still counts. :)

Kiss of the Goblin Prince by Shona Husk – I meant to try this series when the first book came out, but Mount TBR overwhelmed me. I think I might skip ahead and try this one when it comes out.

The Shifter by Jean Johnson – The blurb for this on Goodreads doesn’t say much, which is frustrating, but there are enough hints about the story to interest me. Anyone found a better blurb for this anywhere?

*Scheduled for release May 22nd*

Midnight’s Master by Donna Grant
– This is the first book in the Dark Warrior’s series. Anyone planning to grab this one? I like the thought of Highlanders and Druids. It reminds me of the romances that Karen Marie Moning used to write.

Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander
– This is another series started. I like the thought of a nurse discovering the existence of vampires and getting tangled up in their world, but I have to admit that the mention of the heroine “falling for a zombie” kind of creeps me out.

Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul – I have had mixed results with this series. I enjoyed the first book, Chosen By Blood, but didn’t enjoy the second book, Chosen By Fate. This one is going to be the deal breaker on whether or not I’m going to continue the series.

*Scheduled for release May 29th*

Darkness Becomes Her by Jaime Rush – The blurb says the the hero and heroine don’t play well with others, so that makes me think this might have fun banter and sniping. What can I say? I like frenemies. :)

Tangle of Need by Nalini Singh – Ah, another Psy-Changeling book. I’m not sure about this particular pairing, as I wasn’t impressed with the heroine in past books, but I always enjoy getting back into this world. Who else is planning to grab this one?

    Of course I’m anticipating my new Nalini Singh fix but I also found two man candy covers I likes a lot; the one of Darkness Becomes Her and The Shifter *rawr*

    So much to look forward to. I’m not even close to being caught up on the Singh series…must get on that soon. (I know, I say that all the time) 😛

      At least you don’t have to worry about waiting for the new releases in the series for a while. I always love that part of finding an already established series.

    NIghtshifted seems kinda like Demonica series. And of course I can’t wait for Tangle of Need. But dangit, its hardcover! :(

      Don’t even get me started on the hardcover thing! I find it irritating to have to wait another year to get the paperback version.

    Love the site. I’m viewing mobile and it looks great!

    I’m waiting for the anya bast love her. The Nalini Singh and Rachel Gibson! Cannot wait!

    Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul is not a part of her Para Ops series- it’s the beginning of a totally new series out through Harlequin and is a contemporary romance not a paranormal.

      Wow, color me completely wrong. I didn’t see a blurb when I first went looking for information, so I just assumed–wrongly, it seems. Thanks for pointing that out!
