On My Wishlist #13

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!

Mass Market Paperback, 336 pages
Expected Release Date: January 3, 2012
Genre: Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

In a glittering community in the Colorado Rockies called the Etherlin, the descendants of the ancient muses live behind a wall that separates them from the world and the dangerous creatures who crave them.

Alissa North is inspiration made flesh, so she should never have met Merrick, a deadly half-vampire enforcer, but when they do meet, the connection is instantaneous, and an illicit flirtation is born. He sends her secret gifts. She writes him secret letters.

As both worlds close in on them, Alissa knows that getting caught with Merrick could cost her everything she’s ever cared about, but giving him up proves harder than she ever imagined…

I find this to be a very intriguing combination:
muses and vampires!
Very imaginative, indeed.
Since I love both Greek mythology and vampires
(the good ones, of course!)
I will simply have to get this novel 
pretty much....soon!! 

Hardcover, 448 pages
Simon & Schuster/Gallery Press
September 6, 2011
Genre: Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

On the midnight shift at a hospital in rural Maine, Dr. Luke Findley is expecting another quiet evening of frostbite and the occasional domestic dispute. But the minute Lanore McIlvrae—Lanny—walks into his ER, she changes his life forever. A mysterious woman with a past and plenty of dark secrets, Lanny is unlike anyone Luke has ever met. He is inexplicably drawn to her . . . despite the fact that she is a murder suspect with a police escort. And as she begins to tell her story, a story of enduring love and consummate betrayal that transcends time and mortality, Luke finds himself utterly captivated.

Part historical novel, part supernatural page-turner, The Taker is an unforgettable tale about the power of unrequited love not only to elevate and sustain, but also to blind and ultimately destroy, and how each of us is responsible for finding our own path to redemption.

This one has just the right ingredients --
a dark, mysterious past, immortality,
unrequited love with the promise of a true, requited one...
What's not to like?
It's now on my Amazon wish list!

Hardcover, 272 pages
July 21, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she's ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?

I have already placed a couple of
mermaid novels on my wish list,
and here's another one!
Although the heroine is labeled a 'siren',
in fantasy they're pretty much the same thing.
I like the sound of this one,
even though there's a love triangle
in the picture...

What wonderful books are you all
