On My Bookshelves #21

My Sunday book meme
highlights books that I own,
but have somehow never gotten to,
as well as those wonderful books
I would love to re-read!!

Here are my picks
for this week!

 (House of Comarré #1)
Mass Market Paperback, 418 pages
October 1, 2011
Genres: Paranormal Romnce, Urban Fantasy

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle’s body bears the telltale marks of a comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world…and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.

This is the first volume of a series
I've heard so much about!! 
So I went ahead and bought this one,
to see whether all the hype was justified!
If I don't like it, then I won't
be reading the other two, of course.
I might then hold a giveaway
for this book.
Hopefully, though, I'll love it!

(Vampire Trilogy #2)
Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Zebra Books
February 1, 2003
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Edward Ramsey has spent his life hunting vampires. Now he is one of them. Yet Edward's human conscience - and his heart- compel him to save beautiful Kelly Anderson, and soon their growing love is his reason for living. And as the ancient, stunning and merciless vampire Khira seeks supremacy among Los Angeles' undead, Edward and his former nemesis Grigori Chiavari must unite to stop her - before the city, and everything they cherish, are in her power...

(Vampire Trilogy #3)
Amanda Ashley
Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Zebra Books
February 1, 2006
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Vicki Cavendish knows she should be careful. After all, there's a killer loose in town - one who drains women of blood, women with red hair and green eyes just like her. She knows she should tell police about the dark, gorgeous man who comes into the diner every night, the one who makes her feel a longing she's never felt before. The last thing she should do is invite the beautiful stranger into her house...

After Stephenie Meyer, this writer is
my favorite vamp romance author!
Allthough the quality of her novels
is not always the same,
overall, I love her characters and
how she deals with the whole vampire
mythology, creating very believable worlds,
and vampires who struggle
against their dark nature in order to
protect those they love.

I have read the first volume in
this series,
which is titled Shades of Gray.
Even though that novel is not one of
my favorite Ashley books,
I do want to continue the series!!
