July’21 & Aug’21 eBook Haul

I can’t tell you want happened, other than One-Clicking to purchase book is so damn dangerous. I just kind of went a little crazy? A little click happy? I don’t know.

I do know that my eyes are clearly bigger than my wallet, because I know for a fact that I won’t read most of these any time soon…like at all. Despite wanting to.

I really need to lay off the book buying…unless they’re audiobooks, since they’re all I seem to have time for anymore.

But anyways, let’s jump in and see what eBooks I’ve bought in the last two months.

26185583. sx318 Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) – Ruby Dixon

eBook / GR

As one of the few humans stranded on the ice planet, I should be happy that I have a new home. Human women are treasured here, and one alien in particular has made it clear that he wants me. It’s hard to push away the sexy, flirtatious Aehako, when all I want to do is grab him by his horns and insist he take me to his furs.

But I’ve got a terrible secret – the aliens who abducted me are back, and thanks to the translator in my ear, they can find me. My presence here endangers everyone… but can I give up my new life and the man I want more than anything?

26570784. sx318 Barbarian Mine (Ice Planet Barbarians #4) – Ruby Dixon

eBook / GR

The ice planet has given me a second lease on life, so I’m thrilled to be here. Sure, there’s no cheeseburgers, but I’m healthy and ready to be a productive member of the small tribe.

What I didn’t anticipate? That there’d be a savage stranger waiting nearby, watching me. And when he takes me captive, the unthinkable happens… I resonate to him.

Resonance means mating, and children… but I don’t know if this guy’s ever been around anyone before. He’s truly a barbarian in all ways, right down to clubbing me over the head and claiming me as his own.

So why is it that I crave his touch and hunger for more?

53544752. sy475 Den of Vipers – K.A. Knight

eBook / GR

Ryder, Garrett, Kenzo, and Diesel—The Vipers.

They run this town and everyone in it. Their deals are as sordid as their business, and their reputation is enough to bring a grown man to his knees, forcing him to beg for mercy. They are not people you mess with, yet my dad did. The old man ran up a debt with them and then sold me to cover his losses.

Yes, sold me.

They own me now.

I’m theirs in every sense of the word. But I’ve never been meek and compliant. These men, they look at me with longing. Their scarred, blood-stained hands holding me tight. They want everything I am, everything I have to give, and won’t stop until they get just that. They can own my body, but they will never have my heart.

The Vipers? I’m going to make them regret the day they took me.

This girl? She bites too.

52248954. sy475 Daughter of Hades Collection – Dani Hoots

eBook / GR

Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He’s afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld’s daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely.

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There’s no way that the gods will notice she’s there for only a couple of days…right?

58213447. sy475 Fortune Academy Underworld (Fortune Academy #5) – J.R. Thorn

eBook / GR

Lucifer’s here.
And he’s pissed.

Lucifer has descended on Fortune Academy Underworld a whole five days early—leave it to Cole to be a big fat liar about his timetable. He wasn’t lying about Lucifer’s secret weapon, though, and the truth will take us all for a ride.

Olivia is my best friend and she has a past almost as dark as mine, one even she’s not ready to remember and one Lucifer is ready to exploit.

I want to help her through all of this, but two of my newest Virtues are trapped in the pit, the lowest level of Hell and Lucifer’s territory. Getting to them will prove harder than we thought.

Lucifer’s weapon is bleeding through the realms and if he gets his way, Purgatory will be forever destroyed—and my Virtues with it.

The race starts now. 

57487458. sy475 Lucifer’s Curse (The Devil’s Deal #1) – Eliza Raine

eBook / GR

What’s worse than finding a dead girl in your boss’s office? Becoming suspect number one in her murder.

When my impossibly sexy boss, Mr. Nox, steps in and offers to help I’m initially relieved. But his help comes with a caveat. He wants something in return. Oh, and here’s the kicker. He claims he’s Lucifer. The devil. A God of Sin.

Things don’t go my way, and I’m forced to accept a deal with the devil. I know what he wants. I can see the burning desire dancing in his piercing blue eyes. He wants me. And the longer I spend in his company, the more I begin to crave his touch, his kiss, his fierce passion. But if I give myself to him, he may never let me go. He claims that he is cursed, and believes I may be his salvation. I’m starting to wonder if he could be mine.

53259838. sy475 Libra Ascending (Zodiac Guardians #1) – Tamar Sloan & Tricia Barr

eBook / GR

Twelve teens. One Task. Save the universe.

Brielle has never been normal – she sees things no-one else does. But as it looks like she’s about to be adopted after growing up in an orphanage, she’s the closest she’s ever come. All she has to do is act…well, normal.

The new guy in town, Tristan, is anything but that. On the first day she meets him, he starts talking to her of visions and aliens and a darkness so evil, it will take twelve Zodiac heirs to defeat it. Brielle knows she should run the other way, as fast as she possibly can.

If only she wasn’t so undeniably drawn to him…

When assassins attack and Brielle can no longer deny she has powers, she begins to wonder—is Tristan telling the truth? Are there others like her? Are her feelings so powerful because she and Tristan are soulmates?

And ultimately, will Brielle have to sacrifice everything she’s ever wanted so she can join a daunting fight to save the universe?

56461651. sy475 Abducted (Blood Fire Saga: Hades and Persephone #1) – Bella Klaus

eBook / GR

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.

57975714. sy475 Captive (Night Elves of Ardani #1) – Nina K. Westra

eBook / GR

Everyone knows that night elves would just as soon kill you as look at you. Novikke has never seen one in person, and she’s inclined to keep it that way.

As a member of the Ardanian army, Novikke has no love for night elves. Her people and theirs have been at odds for centuries thanks to the elves’ penchant for violence and hatred of humans. Every citizen of Ardani knows not to approach their land: a vast forest made of shadows and magic that eats outsiders alive.

So when she’s taken prisoner by Aruna, a night elf with too-perceptive eyes and a frightening, otherworldly visage, she has little hope of surviving.

But when he shows her unexpected compassion, Novikke begins to see her captor in a new light—and starts to question everything she thought she knew about his mysterious people. Beneath his quiet, cold exterior lies a wry wit and a surprising sense of honor—and she’s beginning to think that he feels the same troublesome attraction between them that she does.

Now, as a deadly magic and the threat of war loom over them both, Aruna is the only person standing between her and death at the hands of his bloodthirsty kin.

As the two of them grow closer, Novikke wonders: Would a night elf ever betray his own people to protect a human?

57455199. sy475 The Night King (Chronicle of Whynne #1) – B.A. Lovejoy

eBook / GR

It had been night far longer than anyone could remember…
I had never known the sun, nor had my parents or their parents before them. It had been stolen from us, blocked long ago by the spiteful fae king.
There is a glimmer of hope when the Night King announces to the country that his son will take a human bride. A contest is to be held to decide the future queen, one which draws in hundreds of entrants from across the country. But only nineteen will be chosen to go to the palace and meet the prince. I am thrown into the competition against my will, the first one chosen.
Unfortunately, I have no wish to marry a fae, let alone one like Prince Edwyn who by his own admission is incapable of love.
But once I am there I find I cannot leave, not that easily. I am tested by the bonds of friendship and devotion to my country. I can not let the kingdom of Whynne remain shrouded in darkness, not when I alone hold the key to lifting the veil of darkness.

49297943. sx318 sy475 Dark King (Court of the Sea Fae #1) – C.N. Crawford

eBook / GR

A snarky fae, a sexy king, and forbidden desire deep as the sea.

Once, I was a fae princess with sea-magic at my fingertips. Now? I’m a hunted supernatural in a squalid shop, stripped of my power. My only comforts are stale cookies, Elvis records, and my hula-hoop. Until a lethally sexy fae king arrives and rips even those away. 

After the brutal king throws me in prison, I strike a bargain with him: my freedom in exchange for helping him find a magic blade. What Lyr doesn’t know is that the blade might restore my stolen magic.

But as we journey, the gorgeous jerk is starting to make me feel things I’ve never felt. When Lyr touches me, desire ignites. I see raging passion in his eyes, too. If I give in, I risk losing my chance at reclaiming my power. Even worse… I could be forfeiting my life.

40748777. sy475 Flock (The Ravenhood #1) – Kate Stewart

eBook / GR

Can you keep a secret?

I grew up sick.
Let me clarify.

I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.
Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.

When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.
Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.

Secrets that cost us everything to keep.
That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.
Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.
And all were punished.

55504599. sy475 Hollow Heathens: Book of Blackwell (Tales of Weeping Hollow #1) – Nicole Florina & Surovi Bain

eBook / GR

A forbidden, timeless, and haunting love story.

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Fallon who was taken far away from home shortly after she was born. 
A home that held more than strange traditions and bizarre superstitions.
Twenty-four years later, she returned to Weeping Hollow, a town she’d only heard about in stories during restless nights under a marble moon, in the middle of the night to take care of her last living relative. 
They called the nosy mortician a freakshow–a ghastly thing.
They said I couldn’t go near her.
Still, there was this aching pull to Fallon Grimaldi that I couldn’t escape.
A nostalgic pull as if we’d been here before.

Once upon a time, there lived a mysterious boy named Julian with a curse as old as centuries wrapped around his soul. 
He was one of the four Hollow Heathens, the very dark creatures who caused the town’s people to live in fear. 
And the Blackwell name was stained with darkness and death.
They called him a monster. Cold and hollow.
They said I shouldn’t go near him.
Still, there was this aching pull to Julian Blackwell that I couldn’t escape.
A nostalgic pull as if we’d been here before. 

56883873. sy475 Sacrificed (The Rejected Mate #1) – Bella Klaus

eBook / GR

Fate made me an outcast. My true mate marked me for death.

As the daughter of my pack’s lame wolf, I’m an outcast, a social reject considered unsuitable for mating. My life is a daily grind of drudgery, humiliation, and abuse.

Then during a ceremony to our god, Fenris-Wulf, fate made me the alpha’s true mate.

My heart fills with hope. This could be the end of my problems, a happy life filled with acceptance, but when I shift, I become a monster.

Horrified at what I’ve become, the other wolves attack. They cast my broken and bleeding body on the altar as a sacrifice, leaving me to die.

But when Fenris-Wulf comes to claim my soul, he sees something in me that’s precious and takes me to his lair.

He offers me the power to get revenge, but in return, I must help him destroy the world…

28096224. sy475 Barbarian’s Prize (Ice Planet Barbarians #6) – Ruby Dixon

eBook / GR

It’s hard being the most popular girl on the ice planet. The alien men are falling all over themselves to impress me in the hopes that I’ll take them to my furs. But they don’t know my secrets – none of them do. And they don’t realize that behind my smile, I just wish they’d go away.

I don’t want any of them. I want someone else – someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. He’s the only one that knows the truth. Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the past…. but I’m pretty sure he wants more than just friendship.

He wants forever, and I’m not sure I can give it.

29623967. sy475 Barbarians Mate (Ice Planet Barbarians #7) – Ruby Dixon

Except that the soulmate chosen for me? My least favorite person on the darn ice planet. Haeden’s the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien… so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he’s not as awful as I think he is?

I hate him… don’t I?

30524238. sy475 Barbarian’s Touch (Ice Planet Barbarians #8) – Ruby Dixon

eBook / GR

When I wake up on the ice planet, I’m scared of everything: this place is cold, silent, and the locals look more like blue devils than aliens. To make matters worse, one of the strangers decides I’m going to be his girlfriend and kidnaps me away from my sister. I’m completely and utterly alone. What’s a girl to do?

Well, this girl escapes. 

Of course, that means I go from frying pan into the fire, and my situation gets even more dangerous. Just when I have no hope left, a new hero appears. Sure, he’s blue, horned, and has a tail. He’s also fierce, protective, makes me purr… and thinks I’m perfect.

But is what we have real or just a mating instinct? 

31818909. sy475 Barbarian’s Taming (Ice Planet Barbarians #9) – Ruby Dixon

eBook / GR

As a newcomer to the alien tribe, I’ve struggled to find my place. It might be because I’m a tad headstrong at times. And yes, I might have thrown a few things at people’s heads. But I had a good reason to pitch a fit – my shy sister was stolen away right under my nose. Of course, now she’s back and mated. Everyone’s happy… except me.

I need… affection.
Okay, I’m lonely. Really lonely.

Strangely enough, the only person that I think understands what I’m going through is the same blue-skinned brute that stole my sister. It’s wrong to hook up with him, even as a mindless fling.

Except… I’m not so good with the whole ‘rules’ thing.
And he’s not so great with the ‘fling’ thing.
