Received last Week:
For Review:
Full Blooded by Amanda Carlson (cover to come)
Goodreads Synopsis:
After living in hiding for the last twenty-six years, Jessica wakes up to find she's become a full-blooded werewolf -- claws, fangs, fur, everything. It was never supposed to happen: female werewolves don't exist. 

When a mercenary killer comes looking for her, her Pack finds themselves caught in the middle of a war. They must rise up to protect her, but no one knows if she's means the end of their race-or just a new beginning.

Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
Goodreads Synopsis:


Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans. 

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future. 

Henry's first wife, Persephone.

And I continue with my Billi's Back winning package! These are the erotica enovellas I won.  No erotica's not really my read, but a few of these kind of caught my attention before, and I'm curious to see how they are.
A young man hunts down an inventor, sure that it is his duty to kill him. However past and future collide in the laboratory. Steam and sparks ensue. Erotic Flights of Fantasy are a series of short stories which combine fantasy, horror or science fiction with erotica. Mysterious and magical, erotic and titillating stories for grownups. 

Puck is stuck in the 1980s, unable to return to the Fey realm, and slowly being robbed of his power. Then, in the most unlikely setting of an office Christmas party, he finds hope and strength.

In an alternative America, a superhero has a lesson in control taught to him by an old friend. Tables are turned, and villains overcome. Erotic Flights of Fantasy are a series of short stories which combine fantasy, horror or science fiction with erotica. Mysterious and magical, erotic and titillating stories for grownups. 

Fleur is in Nazi occupied Paris, but she isn't afraid of them as much as she is of the ghosts that hold her enthralled. As the city grows wilder and she realizes the danger she is in, can she escape them at all? Perhaps a young resistance fighter can give her the will to try? 

In every town there are people with jobs no one else wants. The Gatekeeper is one of those in Hyde, but Lila finds ways to make it more than a little exciting. In the hedonistic world of New York in the late 70s, four succubi go looking for the next meal. One of them how 

You’ve double booked yourself several times over, and your professor has just handed you an assignment you only have a few days to finish. What do you do? Sacrifice some fun, or perhaps mix up a potion? 

For my iPod, I've downloaded the first 10 episodes of Fables of the Flying City by Jared Axelrod.
So, I have a week that is busy with the kid, but I'm *hoping* to get a bunch of reading done too.  We shall see how that works out with squeezing in exercise as well.

Here's wishing you all a great week in words and pages.
