Weekend Reading: MERCURY STRIKING by Rebecca Zannetti


I've selected my next book - MERCURY STRIKING by Rebecca Zannetti and will be reading it this weekend. Who wants to join me? We can discuss Monday.

“Thrilling post-apocalyptic romance at its dark, sizzling best!”—Lara Adrian

"Nothing is easy or black or white in Zanetti's grim new reality, but hope is key, and I hope she writes faster!” —New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione
With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…
Danger has never looked quite so delicious…

Beaux Rêve Coven, Book 1

Bryn Cavanaugh and her coven like that the community they live in is isolated thanks to a storm that destroyed the bridge between them and the outside world. Now the state wants the bridge rebuilt. When the construction crew checks into the inn, Bryn begins to suspect something about the crew’s boss isn’t quite…human.

Bridges are Ethan Thorne’s thing—after all, he’s a troll—so building a simple span over a remote canal in backwater Louisiana shouldn’t be this much of a problem. When he follows the pretty little innkeeper to a midnight
rendezvous, he discovers why his crew keeps running into trouble. Bryn and her coven are casting spells in the moonlight.  

As a troll, Ethan feels the sting of his low place in demon hierarchy. But finding an unprotected coven of witches in the middle of the bayou could lead to all sorts of adventure. And it’s better to keep your enemies close...

Warning: Contains a handsome troll (Hey, it can happen!) who’s skilled at building sexual tension with his hands—and several other body parts, as well—and a witch who’s determined to protect her home, but forgets to shield her heart.

Mate Claimed  by Jennifer Ashley

Eric Warden knows that half-Shifter wildcat Iona is passing for human, living without a Collar in the human world. He also knows that if she does not acknowledge her Shifter nature and her mating hunger, it could kill her. Iona finds the mysterious and dangerous Eric, a wildcat and leader of his Shiftertown, haunting her dreams, but she vows never to "come out" and take the Collar, fearing backlash against her mother and sister for hiding the fact that she's Shifter. But Eric is a compelling Shifter male, and Iona's hunger calls to him.



Read the Interview now! 

Hi, and thanks for inviting me to your blog. To celebrate the release of Mate Claimed, I’ll interview its hero, Eric Warden.


JA: Eric—tell me a little about yourself.


Eric: What’s to tell? I’m a Shifter. A Feline—my family tends toward snow leopard.


JA: Tends toward? You mean you’re not really a snow leopard? Or what?


Eric (with patience): Shifters were bred from the best of all big cats, centuries ago, by the Fae. But families and clans have more of one cat than the other. Wardens are snow leopards, the Morrissey family in Austin are lions, and one of their trackers, Spike, is a jaguar.


JA: What about Iona? What is she?


Eric: Iona is a panther—a black leopard in this case. Rare, even for Shifters.


JA: What else can you tell me about Iona Duncan? I can be discreet.


Eric: She’s entering her fertile years, and her mating hunger is getting out of control. I worry about what will happen to her if she gets too wild. She might hurt herself, or her family, without meaning to. I want to bring her in, to mate-claim her, to help her out.


JA: I imagine she won’t like that.


Eric: No, she doesn’t. But once she’s met my sister and my son, and understands more about Shifters, I think she’ll get it.


JA: No other reason you want to bring her in? Not like—you think she’s hot?


Eric (smiling): OK, so that’s the other reason. I’ve never met anyone like her. I never thought I’d fall for anyone after losing my mate, but Iona’s making me change my mind. Her eyes—her eyes are this light blue, her hair is black—like the beautiful Celtic women from the Outer Hebrides or Ireland.


I’ve thought about backing off and letting other Shifter males have a chance with her, but every time I see her. Nope. Can’t do it.


JA: She’s the One, then.

Eric (quietly): Yes, she is.


JA: How’s your son going to take that?


Eric: Jace is amazing. He’s all for me finding another mate. He’s so grown up now. I can’t remember that happening.


JA: What about your sister and her husband?


Eric: Cassidy and Diego? They like Iona. She’s a strong-willed woman, and Cassidy likes that. But, you know Cass.


JA: Anything else going on in your life, Eric? What are you going to do about the new Shifters that have been forced to join your Shiftertown? And Graham, their leader?


Eric: Graham’s a complicated person. I get that he’s worried about the wolves under his leadership, but his pack has been isolated too long. He’s not getting that we’re going to have to do this together. He wants to take over. I’m not going to let him.


JA: Sounds like you have your hands full.


Eric: Yeah. But, you know, we’ll get there.


JA: With Iona?


Eric: With Iona. Definitely with Iona. I’m not doing it without her.


JA: Well, I wish you the best of luck.

Eric: I don’t need luck. I need a plan. And I have one.


JA: Learn Iona’s side of the story in Mate Claimed, Shifters Unbound Book 4, which is out now. I hope you all enjoy it!

DIVE INTO...Patricia Briggs!

Are you already a fan of Patricia Briggs? Do you love paranormal romance? Boy, you are in for a treat if you haven't read this fabulous author yet. I recommend you start with her Alpha & Omega series - this has more romance than her other series and it is a great way to start. Her Alpha & Omega series started in an anthology series called ON THE PROWL. You can now buy this short story for your Kindle - Alpha & Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf. Check it out for only $2.99 (linnk to purchase on the right!)

Start there and then continue with the first in the series called CRY WOLF.


Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

If you start this series (or have read this series!) let me know what you think!

First book in a spellbinding new series of mortal sin- and immortal love

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about- his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that-until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart-and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.
