On My Wishlist #10





This is a fun weekly event hosted by
Carolyn at  Book Chick City,
 and runs every Saturday.
Each participating blogger features books 
s/he hasn't actually bought yet,
but desperately wants to read!!


These books can be either newly-published,
to be released in the near future,
or in print for several years.

If you'd like to know more, just click HERE.

In my particular case, any books I place
on my wish list are strictly the print versions,
since I do not read ebooks. 


Here are my choices for this week!

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Hardcover, 367 pages
Published by Thomas Nelson

Genres: Christianl Fiction, Paranormal Romance,

From the Goodreads Synopsis


It is a dangerous tale of times past. A torrid love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.

Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover.

With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.






Trade Paperback, 304 pages
Published by Kensington
September 1, 2006
Genres: Fantasy, Historical Fiction,
Paranormal Romance


From the Goodreads Synopsis


As identical twins, Bothan and Calum MacNachton share a bond stronger than most brothers, one forged by a terrible secret. Rumours and dark tales have been whispered about their clan for centuries. For they roam the Highlands at night, driven by a savage hunger that can never be sated. Their only hope lies in marriage to Outsiders, mortal women whose pure blood will weaken the hold of their eternal curse. Now, alone and on the hunt for their brides, Bothan and Calum are at the mercy of both the Outsiders and whatever new dangers love brings...



These all sound like truly fabulous reads!!

I have read other books
by Hannah Howell and Lynsay Sands,
and love them both!

I have never heard of Melissa Mayhue before,
but saw this book on another blog,
and immediately became enchanted with the story...

As for Ted Dekker, I have indeed heard of him,
but have never read any of his books.
He's supposed to be awesome, althouth
I must confess I don't think all of his novels
would appeal to me.
He does seem to write on the very edge of horror...

This particular novel, though, sounds like an
incredibly romantic read, and is
full of action and suspense, as well!
So I'm definitely going to for it!!

And....of course I love all three covers!!!




So, what books are all of you
wishing for this week?
