Launching Romance into the stars.

What I'm Reading - It's a MUST READ!

It's my day to post again, and I'm dealing with a sketchy internet connection. I'm trying to get this post up before it goes out again. Eek!

Anyways, I have two releases coming out at the end of this month. Satin Sheets in Space, which releases May 29 is my fourth 1Night Stand story. While it has a new heroine and heroes (Yes, I said heroes ;) ) there are characters mentioned in the story that made an appearance in my previous 1Night Stand stories. The second release is An Unexpected Return which is the second book to be released in Decadent Publishing's new science fiction romance line, Elatia.

But enough about them! I wanted to tell you about this awesome book that I'm reading. Some author friends of mine recommended the book Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout to me the last time I saw them. I'd seen the book many times, added it to my TBR list, but waited to buy it. I already had a bunch of short stories and books to read. So, knowing that I love alien stories, they said I'd love it. And I do. Seriously, I have it sitting beside me right now. I hate to put it down. The characters are fabulous, strong-willed, but not perfect, not even the hot alien. The story is completely believable and has sucked me right in.

Now, I am regretting not reading it sooner. It is YA, so not as much romance and explicitness as some of the stories I read, but it doesn't matter. This books simply rocks. And while I haven't finished the story yet, it's heading toward my favorite book ever. Definitely my favorite YA.

Here's the blurb:

Starting over sucks.When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.And then he opened his mouth.Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me.You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is.

So, what are you reading?
