First, huge congratulations to Faith Hunter for her Audie Award nomination in the Paranormal category for BLOOD OF THE EARTH, the first in her Soulwood series, read by Kristine Hvam!

In other audio news, R.S. Belcher’s THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE WHEEL was named Fit for the Big Screen by Audible.com in their recent promotion. I couldn’t agree more.

While we’re on the big screen, Book Riot listed N.K. Jemisin’s THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS as one of their 5 Diverse Fantasies that Need Movie Adaptations!

 And now, I’m excited to present this week’s new releases – paranormal romance, and superheroes and secret identities!

Bound by blood, sealed in secrets 

A half-blood Rider, Timon has a duty to anyone under his protection, but his intense attraction to scientist Jamie McCullough is complicating his latest mission. In a moment of desperation, he makes a difficult choice. His bite heals her—and creates a bond that neither of them can resist.  

As she heads for a conclave convened to create new peace between humans and vampires, Jamie carries a secret that could secure peace everlasting. But before she has a chance to reveal it, she’s accused of bringing a vampire-killing virus to the negotiations. Though Timon is willing to pay the ultimate price to save her, can he first win the ultimate challenge of her trust?

THE THIRD CASE FOR THE SUPER CITY COPS!

Lieutenant Therese Zimmerman’s life is turned upside down when a badly injured Spectacular Man stumbles into her apartment and reveals himself to be her on-again, off-again boyfriend, philanthropist Marc McLean.

At the same time, Detectives Kristin Milewski and Jorge Alvarado investigate what seems to be a simple murder of four homeless people by a powerful supervillain. Unknown to them, the murders are connected to how Spectacular Man got hurt. Now Zimmerman must choose between the person she cares about and her duty as a cop.

ABOUT THIS SERIES

The great metropolis of Super City is the home of dozens of costumed heroes — the Terrific Trio, the Bruiser, the Superior Six, the Cowboy, and many more — who do battle against the super-villains who terrorize the citizenry.

These aren’t their stories …

When the heroes are done punching out the villains, it’s left to the stalwart men and women of the Super City Police Department to restrain them, arrest them, and hope that this time there’s enough evidence to actually convict them.

Just another day on the job for the Super City Cops.

No, no, no, it cannot be June already.  It’s not possible!  (Though my thermostat begs to differ.)

Due to vacation and other insanity, I’m a bit behind on my book birthdays, but I’m pleased to wish very happy releases to these wonderful May books!

Others in the Nightsiders series: DAYSIDER, NIGHTMASTER, SHADOWMASTER, NIGHT QUEST

TORN BETWEEN PEACE AND PASSION… 

Former serf Daniel had journeyed to Tanis in search of harmony between humans and vampires. Though the citadel’s facade promised peace, it wasn’t difficult to find the danger lurking in the shadows. Yet it was the Bloodlady known as Isis, an ancient, beautiful vampire, who proved the biggest threat to Daniel’s heart.

No human had ever excited Isis the way Daniel did. Though she desired him like no other, she knew he had been damaged, body and soul, by her own kind. Would his past forever stand between them? Or, worse, would the malicious forces who made Tanis their home destroy them both before they could explore their deepest hungers?

When the only surviving member of SG-7 brings Kali’s injured First Prime back to Stargate Command, Colonel O’Neill and his team are called on to investigate an attack by the Reetou on one of Kali’s homeworlds. But when a sabotaged Stargate leaves O’Neill, Carter and Daniel trapped off-world, Teal’c must team up with Kali’s First Prime, Jacob Carter, and Bra’tac to rescue his missing team. Meanwhile, the rest of SG-1 is presented with an offer they can’t refuse – to help Kali negotiate peace with the Reetou, or see thousands of her people massacred as punishment for their refusal. As time ticks down to the fateful meeting between Kali and the Reetou, SG-1 must escape before they fall victim to the Reetou’s deadly subterfuge …

Moving into June now, I’m so pleased to see Genevieve Cogman’s wonderful novel THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY on Amazon’s list of Best Books of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy.

Also, Wired Book Club has finished up their reading of THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin, and she’ll be chatting with them about it on June 4th. (Warning on the link to this: there will be spoilers, so don’t click here if you haven’t read.)

There are many more great reads ahead, so stay tuned!
