Waiting On Wednesday # 89 – Shield of Winter & Overwhelmed by You


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

Shield of Winter
Shield of Winter (Psy-Changeling, #13)Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Psy-Changeling #13
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Expected Publication: June 3rd 2014






Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.

For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…

Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

Overwhelmed by You
Overwhelmed by You (Tear Asunder, #2)Author: Nashoda Rose
Series: Tear Asunder #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: May 2014






Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.

KAT

I don’t beg.
I don’t cry.
And I don’t give second chances.

Ream, the lead guitarist of the rock band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot.
I hate him.

Until …

Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he was loud and obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy. Except me … I don’t beg—ever.
But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s steady confidence that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers.

Then…

Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.

REAM

Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it, but hated it—until her. She was unfuckinexpected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past. I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.

*Warning contains violence, sexual content, and coarse language. Some scenes may be triggers. Mature audiences 18+

    Not really books I'd read but I hope you enjoy them. I really like the cover for Overwhelmed by you. I thought maybe she was tossing off a pair of angel wings (you know like Victoria Secret kind) but on second glance realized it was a tattoo on a guy. Clever!

    Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier and sharing!

    I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Shield of Winter and I have
    it on my bookshelf facing me. It's right next to my The King book. My
    shelf has never looked so pretty :-)

    Oh, the Psy-Changling series is one I have yet to start...I know...I know... :) And of course, you know how I feel about Overwhelmed by You. *ha* BTW, I was turned down for it. *haha* Guess I better get some more reviews done for NG. I do have Torn from You so I'll get to that asap...I think you said I was supposed to read that one first, right?


    Hope you're having a great week, girl!

  33. I am having a great week. And I am keen to start Overwhelmed by You! And yes... you need to read a Nailini book!

    BDB is the only series I pre-order a signed copy from the author from. It was my first and his my favorite vampire series

  35. I am DYING here, the Psy-Changeling is up to 13 now?! I need to get to this series so bad, but 13 is a daunting number to add to the already huge TBR. I have a tendency to binge read new series so I will be in Psy-Changeling world for a long time when I start that one! LOL

  36. Oh great picks! I know a lot of people love SIngh's books and I do want to check them out one day!
