This week I went on an adventure. I looked up used bookstores in my area and found a few. You see, I was on a mission to find a fist edition Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I love that book and currently own the first copy I read/borrowed from the library when the library put on their sale shelf, as well as the anniversary edition. Unfortunately I did not find a copy but I wound up walking away with a couple of books and a really cool wrist cuff that had me thinking of a certain character for a popular series.

Tough, smart, and seriously ambitious, reporter Jacqueline “Jack” Dolan despises the secretive clan of shape-shifters known as the Ikati—and has become determined to destroy them.

The last thing he expects is to develop real feelings for her, but their liaison awakens a hunger in him that he cannot deny. He kidnaps Jack and brings her to his Amazon jungle colony, but the two lovers are soon embroiled in deadly colony politics and threatened by a looming global species war.

Unleash the Night
By: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals – snow leopard and white tiger – Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.

Marguerite D’Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. senator who hates the socialite life she’s forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn’t understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.

In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It’s a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls…

No Mercy
By: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Live fast, fight hard and if you have to die then take as many of your enemies with you as you can. That is the Amazon credo and it was one Samia lived and died by. Now in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there’s a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she’s ever faced before.

Shapeshifter Dev Peltier has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years and in that time, he’s seen it all. Or so he thought. Now their enemies have discovered a new source of power- one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date.

The war is on and Dev and Sam are guarding ground zero. But in order to win, they will have to break the most cardinal of all rules and pray it doesn’t unravel the universe as we know it.

 
Goodies
cuff

I popped into a local boutique shop while book hunting and found this awesome bracelet. I’ve been looking at ones like this on Etsy but they all look crappy and cheaply made. The second I saw it I had to have it. I didn’t even care that it was a lot of money and that I’m not really a jewelry person. It was a wrist cuff that I’d been wanting and was absolutely perfect for this book nerd.
