Spider’s Bite by J. Estep

25 January 2010 Jackie 3

A Fury & A Prince

25 January 2010 Jackie 1

Got to hand it to SciFiGuy, he always finds the most interesting novels and something tells me Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie will be interesting. After all, it’s not very often a Fury is the main heroine. Red Hot Fury releases June 29th and Doug has the blurb if the cover intrigues you.

Melissa Marr is putting together a Radiant Shadows roaming ARC review tour, where multiple bloggers get to share one ARC and help promote the book by getting reviews up. I’m not sure when she’s cutting off people on the tour or if she’s even going to limit the number, so if you want to get on the list, get over there now.

SciFiGuy has his amazing Weekend Report up yet again.
