While I was in New Orleans for the RT convention, I toured the Destrehan Plantation with a few of my friends. It was beautiful! Sadly, because of traffic, we missed the last guided tour of the day. It all worked out in the end, though. We let my friend, Debbie, a NO native, guide us around the plantation. She had been so often, she knew most of the history and was able to fill us in on the interesting bits.

AKissofVenom 432x648All’s fair in love and murder…

Araneae Nation, Book 3.5

Betrayed by her lover and exiled from her clan home, Nicolette has carved herself a new identity from the heart of her old life. Hardened by grief and desperate to survive, she hones a new skill set…and the daggers that go along with it.

Armand is heir to the wealthiest clan in the Araneae Nation. His entire life is as mapped as his heritage. Tradition dictates his every decision, and the one choice he ever made for himself cost him the woman he loved.

When Nicolette is offered a contract she can’t refuse, she returns to Erania with deadly intentions. Her secrets are safe behind the façade she created. Or they would be if Armand would stop chipping at the cracks in her veneer.

One kiss ignites an old flame, and suddenly their history is in danger of repeating. Armand falls for Nicolette’s charade, but she can’t let a second chance at happiness distract her from her mission. Someone in the Araneidae nest is marked for death, and Nicolette aims to deliver.

Warning: This story contains one heroine bent on revenge and one hero determined to atone for his sins. Also included are venom kisses, poison hangovers, pointy objects and questionable taste in condiments. Expect fireworks, near-death experiences and one surprise ten years in the making.

TimeofDying 432x648They just might survive…if they don’t kill each other first.

Araneae Nation, Book 3

Once the future Segestriidae maven, Kaidi lived a privileged life. Now she spends her nights haunting cities ravaged by the plague. Spade in hand, she stalks rows of freshly dug graves for corpses…and then she takes their heads.

Her new life is caked in blood and spattered with gore, but it’s hers. At least until—to her fury—she’s caught napping.

A plague survivor by the skin of his teeth, Murdoch risks his neck to solve the mysteries left in its wake. Bodies have gone missing. Guards have left their posts and never returned home.

When he rouses a female dozing among the dead, he’s unprepared for the violence of her response. Or his. Beneath the grime, she’s lovely. Too bad the blood under her fingernails belongs to his clansmen.

He has no choice but to follow this alluring creature deeper into her world of winged beasts and flesh-eating monsters. She holds the knowledge he craves, but the price is high—and they may both pay for it with their lives.

Product Warnings

This book contains one heroine in desperate need of a bath and one hero willing to wash away her sins. Expect threats, swears and general cursing. Love is a slippery slope, and these two are sliding.

molSeveral months ago I was searching the internet for witchy PNR books when I hit on Molly Harper’s Better Homes and Hauntings. The title alone made me chuckle, so I checked out her backlist and realized she was also the author who wrote the Naked Werewolf series one of my friends had been raving about for weeks. I burned through those (and most of the Jane Jameson series) and now I’m on to the Half Moon Hollow spinoff series.

My buddy Sasha told me about another series to check out last night. It’s Monster Haven from R. L. Naquin. The first books is Monster in my Closet. It looks like fun, and I love the premise.
