Bears Are the New Black: Paranormal Best Bets for May 2015

Chaos and Moonlight by A.D. Marrow

Since we shouldn’t spend all summer watching The Bachelorette and flipping through Kim Kardashian’s selfie book, here are May’s paranormal romance offerings. 

Vampires!
Chaos and Moonlight by A.D. Marrow

The Nines, an elite group of vampires, was established to stand as protection for their race. Fractured by centuries of betrayal and loss, the group is now little more than myth, its remaining members scarred and shattered.

Taris, the oldest living vampire, is no stranger to loss and heartbreak. He is all that holds the Nines together as they struggle to save themselves from total extinction.

Enter the beautiful and brilliant Dr. Sarah Bridgeman, whose medical research has resulted in a breakthrough for both humans and vampires. Her work may be the salvation this weary band of guardians has been looking for.

Taris needs to reach Sarah and enlist her help—before those aligned against him can act. Can a vampire king convince a stunning young scientist to save a species that isn’t even supposed to exist?

For now, only one thing is certain: no science can explain the explosive chemistry between them.

Anyone thinking that vampire romance is a declining “trend” needs to dive into this endearingly quirky debut offering from A.D Marrow.  This is a gritty, vivid world where vampires face a dark threat; a genetic fertility crisis makes them unable to turn or birth new members of their species.  Warrior vampire Taris is determined to use human Sarah’s new medical breakthrough to save the day and find a vampy fertility cure.  Expect some serious chemistry both in and outside the lab here.  Sarah is one smart doc, more than a match for sexy Taris who has mastered that brooding vampire thing. Oh, and did I mention the bitch-tastic villain? Awesome. There’s a cool smorgasbord of secondary characters and there are some hints about vamps in search of love in future books. Black Dagger Brotherhood and Immortals After Dark fans in search of a fix should definitely check out the Nines.

Sarah Castille

Beyond the Cut by Sarah Castille

She’s holding on tight.
As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn's former life still has its hooks in her and she'll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Ryder” O'Connor, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…

Will he give her the ride of her life?
Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner's Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn's heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can't be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…

Get a sneak peek at  Sarah Castille's Beyond the Cut (available June 2, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

ONE

Fear is the enemy. I will master my fear before it masters me.

SINNER’S TRIBE CREED

Dawn Delgado had to hand it to Kitty’s Wig Emporium. They made damn good wigs. Well, except for the ill-fitting tribute to 1980s hair bands perched on her head.

She shoved yet another errant blond curl under the elastic. What the hell was going on? After twelve months of trial and error, Kitty’s wigs were usually a perfect fit.

First Look: Dianne Duvall’s A Sorceress of His Own (June 2, 2015)

A Sorceress of His Own Dianne Duvall

Dianne Duvall
A Sorceress of His Own (Gifted Ones #1)
Dianne Duvall / June 2, 2015 / $2.99 digital

From the New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Immortal Guardians series comes an enchanting new series full of romance, danger, and loyalty: The Gifted Ones

Since the day Lord Dillon earned his spurs, rumors of his savagery on the battlefield have preceded him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear. Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear, but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence. Perhaps because she garners the same fear in others that he does himself.

For seven years, Alyssa has been by Lord Dillon's side, counseling him from the shadows, healing him with her hands, and staving off the worst of his loneliness while his fearsome reputation keeps others at bay. Blessed—or cursed—with gifts that label her a sorceress, she is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for him beneath umbral robes that lead Dillon and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.

All is revealed, however, and passions flare when an enemy threatens Dillon's life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him. When Dillon discovers that the wisewoman is far from elderly, he is instantly entranced. And, as he and Alyssa work together to defeat an enemy bent on destroying them both, Dillon will risk anything_even the wrath of his king—to be with her.

What if the love of your life has been standing by your side for years but you never saw them?

First Look: Jessica Peterson’s The Undercover Scoundrel (June 2, 2015)

Jessica Peterson
The Undercover Scoundrel (Hope Diamond Trilogy #3) 
Berkley / June 2, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital

The author of The Millionaire Rogue returns to her dazzling series about a bygone era filled with romance, espionage, and one dangerously seductive diamond…

Mr. Henry Lake spent the past twelve years uncovering the most scandalous secrets of Europe’s wealthy and powerful, serving as one of His Majesty’s most decorated spies. But when a mission to find the legendary French Blue diamond brings him back to London, and face to face with a beautiful noblewoman he once loved, it’s his own hidden passions that are uncovered…

Lady Caroline, Countess of Berry, knows better than to lose her head over a man. After an embarrassing romantic entanglement forced her into a loveless marriage and early widowhood, she learned to never trust in desire, especially when it comes to the man who once broke her heart. Only, despite her good sense, she finds Henry impossible to resist—even when he once again places her in deathly danger…

In the third book of the Hope Diamond trilogy by Jessica Peterson, The Undercover Scoundrel, we discover the story behind Henry Lake and the newly widowed Lady Caroline, Dowager Countess of Berry.

Misunderstanding on Lady Caroline’s part and an inability to forgive oneself on Henry Lake’s part becomes a driving theme for this once married couple. You see, the day after their wedding, Lake disappears for over a decade. It becomes quickly apparent that working undercover for the crown makes it impossible for Henry to have a relationship with Caroline while simultaneously maintaining her safety. Hence, he does the only thing he can to protect her—he leaves. And he can never forgive himself for the pain he continues to cause her over the years in exchange for her safety.

How (NOT) to Act Around that Hot Guy in Your Office

At His Service by Suzanne Rock

Today we're thrilled to welcome Suzanne Rock to Heroes and Heartbreakers. The paperback edition of Suzanne's serial romance, At His Service, will be coming out June 2 and features one of our favorite tropes in the genre—boss-secretary deliciousness! Lots of people meet their significant others in the office, but anytime you get involved with someone you work with it can have certain pitfalls—and rewards! Suzanne is here today to talk about the dos and don'ts of pursuing an office romance. Thanks, Suzanne!

Anyone here hate their office job? I had one for over a decade and dreaded it every day. Not only do you have to commute through heavy traffic to and from work, but you have to deal with crazy rules, unruly coworkers, and office drama. It was enough to drive you crazy! Now I’m a self-employed writer, but I can still remember that daily grind and how tired I was at the end of the day. *shudder*

One of the things that created a lot of drama in my workplace was an office romance. I’m sure many of you have either been in one or have witnessed one in your department. So much drama can be created, that entire television series, such as The Office and Grey’s Anatomy, use office romances as central themes. In light of this, I thought it would be fun to create a list of dos and don’ts when a hot guy starts working in your office.

Fandemic: Exclusive Excerpt

Fandemic by Jennifer Estep

Piper Perez has always wanted to be a super­hero. Always wanted to wear a cool costume, have amazing abilities, and save the day. There’s just one problem—Piper doesn’t have any superpowers.

So she focuses on other things. Facts, figures, memorabilia. Piper knows and collects it all, about both the superheroes and the ubervillains who roam the streets of Bigtime, N.Y. Piper’s friends jokingly call her a fandemic—someone who is a superfan of all things superhero. The nickname is truer than anyone knows, especially since Piper can’t stop thinking about Swifte, the speedy hero who broke her heart months ago.

But someone has been killing off Bigtime’s heroes and villains. When one of Piper’s friends is murdered, she vows to do whatever she can to help bring the killer to justice, superpowers or not. All the clues and information she gathers lead her to believe that Swifte is the killer’s next target. Piper has always wanted to be a hero, and now she’ll have to use all of her fandemic knowledge to save the man she loves—or die trying….

Get a sneak peek at  Jennifer Estep's Fandemic (available June 2, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

A violent wind swept through the auditorium, hard enough to make my black hair fly around my face. The wind gusted again and again, sending all the comic books on the vendors’ tables swirling up into the air, rattling the pink candy conversation hearts in their glass dishes, and making the candy heart balloons attached to the bar whip back and forth like they were caught in the middle of a tornado. It was a tornado, all right—a superhero-fueled one.

First Look: Julie James’s Suddenly One Summer (June 2, 2015)

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

Julie James
Suddenly One Summer (Novel Series)
Penguin Publishing Group / June 2, 2015 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very hot...

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford.... 

Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for.  

Spring is the best time of the year—with the renewal of all things dormant—flowers blooming, trees putting on new leaves and growth, and gardens coming to life. The weather is perfect too. It’s not too cold or too hot. But the biggest reason to be excited about spring is a new Julie James’s book. 

James is taking a break from her FBI/U.S. Attorney series with Suddenly One Summer, but don’t worry, all her trademark characterization is still very much in evidence—competent, professional heroine who knows how to stand her ground, dealing with failure-is-not-an-option sexy hero. Plus her previous characters do make some cameos.

What’s the Funniest Dedication You’ve Ever Read?

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

Dedications are the chance for the author to call out a person or group that really made their book possible. Personally, I love reading them and seeing who the author thanks—I read the acknowledgements, too!

Most of the time, the dedication is sweet and meaningful between those two people, but every so often the dedication is memorable for its humor. Sometimes, it's to a celebrity, or to the boy who broke your heart in 7th grade, and sometimes, it's even to an inanimate object....

Do you read the dedication on books? What's the funniest one you've read?

First Look: Jessica Topper’s Courtship of the Cake (June 2, 2015)

Courtship of the Cake by Jessica Topper

Jessica Topper
Courtship of the Cake (Much “I Do” About Nothing #2)
Berkley / June 2, 2015 / $16.00 print, $7.99 digital

From the author of Dictatorship of the Dress comes a new novel about a woman who’s vowed to never walk down the aisle—and the two men who’ll do anything to get her to say “I do”…

“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” has suited Danica James just fine…until the mysterious man who crashed her sister’s wedding steals her heart, leaves a slice of groom’s cake under her pillow, and then disappears. 

Hoping to forget her unforgettable fling, Dani takes a job as a backstage masseuse for a rock music festival, not expecting the tour’s headlining bad boy to make an offer she can’t refuse. Nash Drama needs a fiancée—and fast… Mick Spencer is the best wedding cake designer in New Hope and the town’s most eligible bachelor. But despite the bevy of bridesmaids he’s sampled, Mick can’t get the evening he spent with Dani out of his mind.

So when she shows up for a cake tasting at the Night Kitchen—with his former best friend’s ring on her finger—Mick vows to charm the woman of his dreams into choosing a sweet and sinful ever after, with him…

Looking for a book filled with rock-n-roll, a couple of bad-boy- heart-throbs and a woman with a difficult decision in her future? Then look no further than to the new release, Courtship of the Cake by Jessica Topper.

If you read Dictatorship of the Dress, then you have already been introduced to Danica. She helped guide Laney Hudson, the heroine of that book, to her happy ending. But unfortunately, Danica doesn’t have the same perceptive talent in regards to her own love life. In fact it is almost the opposite. She is always running from one thing to another, searching for that elusive missing piece in her life. She thought she had found in with Mick, the guy she met at her sister’s wedding, but that proved to be a mistake. A mistake she isn’t able to forget:

First Look: A. Meredith Walters’s Follow Me Back (June 2, 2015)

Follow Me Back by A. Meredith Walters

A. Meredith Walters
Follow Me Back (Twisted Love #2)
Gallery / June 2, 2015 / $15.00 print, $7.99 digital

The sequel to Lead Me Not, this dangerously sexy second installment in the Twisted Love series continues Aubrey and Maxx’s love story, from New York Times bestselling author A. Meredith Walters—who “writes the most beautifully flawed characters that still have you swooning” (Sawyer Bennett, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Off series).

Aubrey Duncan has loved…and lost. Should she follow a heart that’s betrayed her or a head that tells her to let go?

Maxx Demelo’s addiction almost destroyed him. It ruined his life and, most importantly, his relationship with the only girl he ever loved.

He has vowed to become the man Aubrey Duncan deserves. Even if he has to tear himself apart to do it. So he enters rehab, trying to fix the parts of him that are shattered as he longs to be healthy and whole.

Aubrey lost everything because she chose to listen to her heart. Now she has sworn to put herself first, to heal in the only way that she can…far away from Maxx and his demons.

But just as Aubrey is starting over, Maxx is released from rehab and thrust back into her world, determined to prove how much they still need each other. And the chaos that had defined them threatens to unleash once again…

But a heart, no matter how broken, is impossible to ignore.

The follow up to A. Meredith Walters’s Lead Me Not, Follow Me Back picks up right where the first one ends. Maxx is in rehab and Aubrey is facing the ramifications of her actions after deciding to have a relationship with Maxx. And while Aubrey is adamant that she has ended her relationship with Maxx, we all know that her protestations are an exercise in futility. Because Aubrey and Maxx are that couple: the couple who is meant to be together because they make each other better. The only problem is that Maxx now has to figure out how to be solid on his own first, in order to win back Aubrey’s trust.

[Winning back trust is the hardest thing to do...]

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of May 2015

Sweet Agony by Charlotte Stein

Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for May 2015 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):

Rhyll Biest

The best read of May for me was Sweet Agony by Charlotte Stein. I just loved the hero so much, the way he's so snarky and desperate to push others away but can't resist the heroine's love of books and whimsical conversation.

Chelsea Mueller

The romance genre knows how to push boundaries, and Lilah Pace's Asking for It definitely does so. Instead of leveraging a taboo subject to sensationalize the novel, Pace has carefully crafted and elegant, emotional novel with will keep you talking for weeks. Brilliant book. It's the heady, boundary pushing big sister of Cara McKenna's Willing Victim. And that's saying quite a bit.

First Look: Lilah Pace’s Asking for It (June 2, 2015)

Asking For It by Lilah Pace

Lilah Pace
Asking for It (Asking for It #1)
Berkley / June 2, 2015 / TK Prices

“This is who I am. This is what I want. Now I need a man dangerous enough to give it to me.”

Graduate student Vivienne Charles is afraid of her own desires—ashamed to admit that she fantasizes about being taken by force, by a man who will claim her completely and without mercy. When the magnetic, mysterious Jonah Marks learns her secret, he makes an offer that stuns her: they will remain near-strangers to each other, and meet in secret so that he can fulfill her fantasy.

Their arrangement is twisted. The sex is incredible. And—despite their attempts to stay apart—soon their emotions are bound together as tightly as the rope around Vivienne’s wrists. But the secrets in their pasts threaten to turn their affair even darker...

Reader Advisory: Asking for It deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised. 

Lilah Pace’s Asking for It comes with a spoiler-y warning on the opening pages. This isn’t your standard sexy tease line about erotic romance having graphic scenes. No, this novel comes with a trigger warning. It even uses those terms. This romance—and the book firmly falls into that category—features consensual sex where the participants play out fantasies of a very non-consensual nature.

[It's edgy and utterly gripping...]

Throwback Thursday: Did You Ever Read Tanith Lee?

Prolific author Tanith Lee, whose contributions to fiction (particularly science fiction and fantasy) included more than 90 novels and 300 short stories and spanned more than 40 years. Our sister site, Tor.com, had a lovely tribute to her work. Lee once said while her stories were based in fantasy, her stock in trade was people and the human condition. What is more human than love? Many of her stories, including the one pictured here, featured love in its many phases—both the good and the bad.

First Look: Jessica Clare’s One Night with a Billionaire (June 2, 2015)

One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Jessica Clare
One Night with a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club #6)
Berkley / June 2, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital

The New York Times bestselling author of The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed delivers a delicious new novel about a secret society of six men who are incredibly wealthy—but not always so successful when it comes to love…

Kylie may be a makeup artist to the stars, but she knows what it feels like to be overshadowed. Especially by her famous boss, the pop star Daphne. That’s why she’s stunned—and delighted—when one night at a party, she attracts the attention of a gorgeous stranger. But when Daphne decides she wants the handsome billionaire for herself, Cade Archer is suddenly off-limits for Kylie…

Cade has known Daphne for years, and always wondered if she might be the right woman for him—even though she never gave him the time of day. But one sizzling night with Kylie has changed everything. So why is she suddenly avoiding him? Fortunately Cade is determined to get what he wants, and he’ll do anything to show Kylie she can get everything she wants too…

With Jessica Clare’s final installment of the Billionaire Boys Club, we finally get Cade Archer’s story! Book after book, I have watched him pine over rock star Daphne Petty, patiently waiting until Daphne is able to stay clean and sober. Book after each book, I kept praying to the book Gods, Please Please, Ms. Clare, don’t have Cade end up with Daphne. And somehow this information was transmitted to said author, rendering me in reader bliss. One Night with a Billionaire is, in my opinion, Clare’s best one of the series. And how fitting that she chose to save the best for last.
