My To-Be Read List is a meme hosted by Because Reading is Better Than Real Life where at the beginning of the month visitors can choose which book I’ll be reading this month. On the first saturday of a month the poll will be up, then on the second saturday of the month I’ll announce the book that won and on the last saturday of the month I’ll post my review of the book.
For this month I decided to go with a sort of random theme. I picked three second books in the series for this month’s poll. And three different genres.
His wolf is out of control. She’s a wild thing that won’t be tamed.
Ex-Army Specialist Jace River has a lock on his bedroom door, but it’s not to keep anyone out; it’s to keep his nightmares from breaking loose. His wolf is an out-of-control killer, which means he can never risk shifting, never truly be part of his pack, and definitely never take a mate.
Piper Wilding works for the Army as a civilian, traveling the world for her work in counterintelligence and fighting the bad guys while bedding down the good ones. The best part? It keeps her far from her asshole father in Seattle, the rest of the Wilding pack, and the pressure to take a mate. Settling down isn’t her thing, and after what happened to her mother, Piper vowed she would never be tied down by magic or men again.
While Jace’s wolf keeps him Sleepless in Seattle, Piper returns home to find her missing kid brother. When she breaks into the River brothers’ safehouse, sparks fly and claws come out. Her sexy skills threaten to bring out Jace’s wolf, and Jace’s good-guy hotness reminds Piper how tempting shifter men can be. They’re like fire and gasoline, and as they race to find Piper’s brother, the heat threatens to burn down all their carefully constructed walls. But falling in love has never been so dangerous—and being together means taking risks that neither might survive.
The course of true love doesn’t run smoothly when your predicted soul mate is already dead.
Kate Hale isn’t excited to end her first month as an investigative actuary in Accidental Death Predications on probation. So, when her boss farms her out as a consultant to a private Love Predictions company to “give her a break,” Kate fears that her days at her dream job are numbered.
But the new case offers an interesting puzzle. Hundreds of customers hoping for the names of their true loves have been mistakenly paired with the recently deceased. It’s Kate’s chance to prove she can solve the unsolvable, but her client is more interested in preventing the problem from reoccurring than uncovering the mystery.
At least her new case doesn’t require Ian Becker’s assistance. She’s not interested in his type of rogue investigative work and the trouble it brings. When he’s not breaking and entering or ignoring procedure, he insists on discussing their unresolved private matter after she volunteered to be his temporary pack mate.
Except Becker manages to bring the trouble right to her doorstep anyway.
Fortunes, fineries, and foul play . . .
It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B&B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!
Now it’s time to vote!
