In My Mailbox (#6)

Changing my IMM time to Sunday this year means today it’s time for “In My Mailbox"! This meme is brought to you by The Story Siren and the idea is to post about books you've bought, gotten from the library, received for review... books don't have to arrive via your mailbox.

As usual, I’ve been going crazy with Amazon’s free Kindle offers…

Still available for free – the titles lead you to the pages:

image Ice Man by KyAnn Waters, the first book in the Blood Slaves series.

Feeding and sex go hand in hand when you're a blood slave to a vampire. It's like a drug and Rowan is hooked. With the vampire Theron, Rowan has never wanted for more than his next fix. Until he meets Brett. Brett is hot, the sex is incredible and he's human.

Brett is looking for kinky sex when he goes to The Catacombs, an exclusive fetish club for men. Flair bartender Rowan, also known as Ice Man, is sexy and mysterious. Brett isn't ready to complicate his life with a lover outside The Catacombs and Rowan isn't interested in club-scene sex but coming together and giving in never felt so good.

Rowan's dark secret could destroy everything. He must never allow Brett to learn of his symbiotic relationship with the vampire. He has to choose-tell Brett the truth or remain a blood slave. He can only hope that Brett will trust in love enough to forgive him.

image Demon Hunter and Baby by Anna Elliott, first in a planned series 

Her boss is a fairy, her ex-lover is a Knight Templar, and she spends her days fighting the demons that plague London’s streets.  But what’s really complicating Aisling McKay’s life is being a single mother to a nine-month-old baby girl.

Ever since the End Times, magic has been leaking into our world.  Magic and demons, shadowy beings that possess humans’ bodies and destroy their souls.  The Monastic Order of the Knights Templar have revealed themselves to the world as guardians and defenders of the veil between the demon world and ours.  But the Templar Order is growing weaker, and the veil is starting to shred and tear.  Often all that stands between humans and complete demonic possession are professional demon fighters, Hunters like Aisling McKay.

Aisling already has enough to handle between her day job, her (very unplanned) baby daughter, Willow—and avoiding Kieran, Willow’s father and a Templar Knight.  But now a new danger is abroad in London—and facing it will set Aisling on a collision course with the past she thought she’d escaped for good.
