3 Books That Hit My Radar #24

Not that I need to buy more eBooks, but how can I not when they sound as good as these do? It’s a good thing I get paid on Friday, because if books are going to sound this good, I’m going to need a paycheck.

Vampires are making a comeback and I love it.

Blood Casinothis sounds really good. It seems like its going to have a darker, seductive atmosphere and I’m kind of in love already.

Anything high fantasy with Fae is going to be a win for me.

A Court of Honey and Ash (Honey and Ice Trilogy #1) – and let’s be real…the last line of this synopsis sold me “Hunted by the very man I loved once upon a time.”

And we already know how much of a sucker I am for Hades + Persephone retellings.

Abductedenemies-to-lovers and fated mates…it’s like this was written specifically for me.

I might have to see if any of these also have audiobooks, because then I would definitely have the time to read them right away. But regardless, these are getting added to my kindle, so that when I do have a free moment, I can dive right in.


Blood Casino (Vampires & Vices #1) – Nina Walker

Keep your cards close and your enemies closer.

At least that’s what my mom always told me. Becoming a vampire hunter was never in my cards, but it is now that she needs my help. A decade ago vampires seized control of the bars, casinos, and the dark underbelly of society. Now they deal in addiction and bargain with blood, and humans over twenty-five can’t fight back against their compulsion. It’s made my mother vulnerable––the only family I have left.

To save her, I’m forced to make a deal with the devil––one who lives above a casino, wears a crown, and wants to drink my blood. Andrianos Teresi may be dangerous and alluring but I’ve got a stake hidden up my sleeve. I’ll go all in and play his game, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

What I don’t expect? The heart that needs guarding is my own.


A Court of Honey and Ash (Honey and Ice Trilogy #1) – Shannon Mayer & Kelly St. Clare

Orphaned. Trained to fight. Raised to fear the power of Underhill. Secretly in love with a man who doesn’t want me.

I’m still just Alli, aka the half-human orphan fae, but my life is looking up for the first time. It only took me my whole 24 years.

But when Underhill—the ancestral home of the fae—shatters, making it impossible for any fae to enter, I’m the only one who knows who did it.

A secret that will be the death of me if I do nothing.

A brutal madness spreads through the fae as they lose their connection to Underhill, and to save my people, my only choice is to leave all I have fought for and go on the run.

Unless I figure out how the hell magic that has existed since the dawn of time was destroyed with a single touch, well, an entire life spent fighting to prove myself isn’t going to mean anything at all.

I must find the answer to the riddle of Underhill’s shattering.

Hunted by the very man I loved once upon a time.


Abducted – Bella Klaus

I had a one-night stand with the devil. Now he thinks I’m his wife.

I snuck into a masquerade ball and did something reckless with a man dressed as Hades. How was I supposed to know it wasn’t a costume?

When I ran off, I thought that was the end of it. But he’s abducted me to a beautiful palace in hell.

Hades claims we were once married. He wants me to help him win a civil war in hell and rule as his queen. But I’m just a gardener. I don’t have any magic and I know nothing about warfare or diplomacy.

I said no, but he’s given me three tasks to earn my freedom, each of them more sinful and impossible than the other. If I fail, I must stay with him forever.

The more time I spend in hell, the more difficult Hades becomes to resist, especially when he stands at my bedside at night and stares down at me with those penetrating eyes. His kisses set me alight, his touch awakens something within me thats hotter than hellfire.

If I succumb to his seductive ways, I might forget why I want to leave.
