Now I am also guessed it...books!

The Bad Boys Guide to the Galaxy by Karen Kelley.

This book won't be released until July!!


Take me to your leader. Come to think of it, just take me.

Planet Nerak was perfect-no disease, no darkness, no hunger-until an expedition to Earth brought back an unwanted guest. Enter one talented Nerakian named Lara, sent on a special fact-finding mission in the vast region called Texas. Fortunately, a warrior (he calls himself a "cop") named Sam Jones has offered to help. Unfortunately, Sam's skill at sex is quite distracting-as are plenty other earthly delights, like the dangerously addictive substance called chocolate. Temptations such as these could seriously compromise Lara's-ahem-research...

Crazy, that's what Sam is. What sane man would voluntarily isolate himself in the Texas woods with an alien, not to mention a female one with a superiority complex, legs that won't quit, and a penchant for walking around buck naked? Between bragging about her home planet and levitating, Lara wastes no time getting on Sam's last nerve...and even less time getting into his bed. Talk about going where no man has gone before. Of course, when you're from Texas, nothing-not even an entire planet-is going to stop you from getting what you want.

Willing by Lucy Monroe

Part two of the Ready Willing and Able series by the talent Miss Lucy!


They’re the good guys fighting the bad guys. They’ll get the job done -- if the price is right and so is the cause. Meet three sexy men who individually are READY, WILLING, and ABLE to go the distance -- and together, are unstoppable...

Josie McCall has been raised to be a soldier, and she could be the best -- if she wanted it. Instead, she left her dad’s mercenary school behind for a normal job in computers. But now that someone has torched the school and her dad is MIA from the hospital, Josie’s going to use every bit of her merc training to find him and hunt down the culprits who took him. Josie knows a lot about explosives, hand-to-hand combat, and tracking. What she doesn’t know about is sex. She has no idea what to do with the volcanic attraction she feels for her dad’s new partner, Daniel Black Eagle. And that feels more dangerous than any bomb...

Daniel knows exactly what he’d like to do about that attraction. The brooding explosives expert can’t get within five feet of Josie without wanting to touch, taste, and protect her -- even if he’s sure she would happily drop-kick him if she knew one sizzling moment of his fantasies. But he’ll save it for later. Right now, he’s got his hands full figuring out who set that bomb and took Josie’s dad. Daniel’s sure of one thing, though -- he’s not letting Josie McCall out of his sight for a single second. Convincing the cutest, most desirable trained soldier he’s ever met that she needs a bodyguard isn’t going to be easy. But if she’ll let him, he’ll show her he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her safe, and along the way, he’ll make her feel every inch a woman...

Hotter After Midnight by Cynthia Eden


Emily Drake’s patients tend to be a little unusual. Instead of the typical therapist’s caseload of midlife crises and mother fixations, Emily treats vampires with blood phobias and sex demons looking for meaningful relationships. But her gift for recognizing and healing the Other–those creatures of the night that most humans don’t even know exist–requires a few house rules. First: Never trust a shifter. Especially not one like Detective Colin Gyth, whose gold-flecked eyes and predatory air make Emily realize how much she’s been longing to lose control.

Colin can’t believe the doctor he’s been assigned to work with on the Night Butcher murder investigation is the one person who could expose his true identity as a wolf shifter. Smart, sexy, and stubborn as hell, Emily brings out the alpha male in Colin, unleashing a wild, heady desire that takes them both over the edge.

But in the shadows, the Night Butcher waits…eager to spill Emily’s blood and taste her terror. And he’ll use any means to destroy her, including the one person she has grown to trust…

Caffey said...

Oh so looking forward to Saturday! I shall put it on my calendar so I'm on!

SandDanz said...

Wow!!! Sounds like a ton of fun! I will try to pop by when I can but I will be tied up most of the day with my grandmother's 93rd b-day party so won't be able to take part too much, which sucks because the prizes look awesome!!! :(

SandDanz said...

P.S. Loved "singing karaoke" with you and the others in the hotel lounge at the Ohio meet-up a few weeks back Jacquelyn! It's a shame they made us stop! ;)

Laura K said...

Yeah, Sand, I hated it when "mom" told us to stop singing in Ohio. Wonder who was so uptight that they complained! I was on the quieter end of the table. Go figure....people in a bar, not having fun!

SandDanz said...

Tried to pop in before heading out to the b-day party but I couldn't get the chat to work on my laptop for some reason. :( I hope everyone had fun!
