What I’m reading /have-read plus selections from my massive TBR pile. Maybe you can read them and prioritize for me?

The Feels (topic shamelessly stolen from Liv Rancourt)

So the other day Liv Rancourt and I were doing the grown-up-author equivalent of a 12-year-old girl’s sleepover – we messaged each other on FB and gushed over our crushes (K.J. Charles and Sherry Thomas)

Then Liv, in clear violation of all pinky-swears, told the whole school. (She blogged about it).

It’s a good blog, too. You should read it.

But, the mention of Sherry Thomas and FEELS reminded me of something.

I’ve been a Sherry Thomas fan for a while. If anyone asks me why, I always answer with one phrase, “emotional intensity.” Sherry can grab me from page one, and she never lets go.  I’ve spent a fair amount of time wondering how she does it. It wasn’t until I read The Burning Sky that I finally got a clue…and it was because of what didn’t happen that I spotted it.

Book Spotlight: Alpha’s Truth by Rebecca Royce

I’m thrilled to feature this new release by my friend Rebecca Royce today! Alpha’s Truth is the second book in the Fallen Alpha’s series. I loved the first one, but I have to tell you, the teaser for Alpha’s Truth at the end of Alpha’s Strength really spoke to me. This book on my e-reader now, and I think I’m going to like it even better than the first. No matter what else happens, Rebecca always manages to surprise me with her plots. Digging in….!


 

Alpha's Truth by Rebecca RoyceAlpha’s Truth

Montana Alpha Beaux Nelson believes in living his life the way werewolves were meant to—as naturally and free as possible. He honors the moon with every hunt and breath in his body. When he discovers his true mate is the healer of another pack, he’s determined nothing will come between them—not even her kidnapping. Pursuing her across the continent, Beaux will take any risk to claim the woman meant for him…but surviving her rejection is another matter.

 

Lake Fennell has never thrived as a healer should, her gift acts out, she changes others without their permission and has failed to save those precious to her. When she discovers Beaux may very well be her true mate, she flees rather than face the possibility. In her haste, she falls into the arms of the True Believers. Months of torture later, she can barely believe it when she wakes to find herself with the one man she shouldn’t want and can never have. In order to save them both, she must leave her true mate, knowing she might not leave his heart in tact. But if she doesn’t do what she was born to do everything will be lost…including the world she’s fought the hardest for.

ExcerptAlpha's Truth - Paranormal Romance Book by Rebecca Royce

The moon shone over the land, illuminating the night-drenched terrain before him as though it were daylight instead of minutes past midnight. Beaux Nelson padded forward on four feet, his nose lifted to sample the winter air. In his wolf form, he tasted all the flavors on the breeze. The snow on the ground possessed a gentle sweetness, winter’s kiss not yet disrupted by the pollution of humans. Undoubtedly, they would soon spoil the purity of the season’s white blanket.
