The weird sense of deja vu exploded into something else entirely. Something that shook her to the core. His eyes narrowed and he reached up, caught her chin in his, staring at her.
She was pale and Cullen thought she looked every bit as shaken as he felt. “The dreams,” he muttered. He caught her face in his hands and forced her to look at him, staring into her pale gray eyes. The ugly, dark bruise around her left eye made her iris seem that much paler and as he watched, the pupil flared, enlarging until just a sliver of gray of visible.
Taige tried to jerk away and he wouldn’t let her. “You had the dreams, too, didn’t you?” he demanded.
Her voice shook as she reached up with one hand to jerk on his wrist, trying to break his hold. “Let go of me.”
Slowly, he shook his head. “You have,” he whispered, dismay spreading through him.
Dismay–and something else. She’d always held herself apart from him in those dreams. But through those dreams, he’d gotten to know her, gotten to know the woman she had become. She was pulling away from him not because she was angry at him, or because she didn’t want anything to do with him.
She pulled back because she still loved him.
Shiloh Walker's new book sounds fabulous.

She never wanted to be a superhero. Too much danger. Too much spandex …
Bella Bulluci’s big passion is the arts. Her big pain is being born into a family of superheroes. Of course, Bella might feel differently if her own superpower was one she could control – or at least get some use out of. Instead, her power is one of capricious luck – supercharged telekinesis. In other words, static electricity. Bella knows that’s not a power – just a jinx.
During a gala fundraiser for the local art museum, Bella comes upon two things no Bigtime supergirl should be without: an ubervillain of her very own who plans to steal a priceless gem; and a dashing – if slightly shady – stranger named Debonair. He may have a reputation as a notorious playboy, but the real sparks are going to come from Bella, who’s finally going to learn just how well love and danger can go together …

Melissa Walker's Violet in Private releases on August 5th!
Violet Greenfield knows she's supposed to be a super-confident nineteen-year-old because she's done runway shows in New York and internationally. But now that she's finally headed to college, she's afraid she'll turn back into that girl who blended into the walls in high school. Vassar is just two hours away from New York City—her friends in fashion think she's crazy to stop modeling now. And her old friend Roger is there...but things have been weird ever since they kissed. The real question is if she's not going to be "Violet on the Runway" anymore...who is she?
Doesn't Melissa's new book sound wonderful? I think so.

Wild Hunt (Silhouette Nocturne)
Author- Lori Devoti
Back Cover Blurb
Alongside his hellhound brethren, Venge Leidolf was summoned to start the Wild Hunt anew. But in this dreaded pursuit of souls, Venge sought to free himself from his infernal bondage—by claiming the heart of a fierce Valkyrie.…
Geysa never questioned the alluring gifts that set her apart from the other Valkyries, or her hatred of hellhounds—until Venge fell under her spell. Drawing the alpha hellhound so close made Geysa doubt her every instinct. To stop the Hunt, the two blood-born enemies would need to cast aside old vows and allegiances. Only then could no one question the strength of their union….
Venge Leidolf is a hellhound who is consumed with finding the horn that the ErlKing had used to control the hellhounds. He is driven by revenge to find the horn and is determined to let nothing stand in his way. When he follows the call of the horn, he encounters Geysa, a Valkyrie and is immediately drawn to her. Geysa and her sister Valkyries are equally determined to find the horn and she instructed to get close to Venge in order to find the horn. The attraction between Venge and Geysa is undeniable and even though they are enemies they can’t resist giving into their passion. As they pursue the elusive horn, strong wills collide and in the end they must overcome many obstacles that stand in the way of their love.
Ms. Devoti does an excellent job of world building and provides a unique cast of characters that hold the interest of the reader. I was intrigued to know more about hellhounds, Valkyries and the Norn. I thoroughly enjoyed Venge and Geysa’s story and look forward to Ms. Devoti’s next books.
Wild Hunt is the third book in Lori Devoti’s Unbound series. Preceding books in the series are Unbound and Guardian’s Keep.

Okay, so cats don't always land on their feet
I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I've made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride, and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I'm working harder than ever , though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on and off duty.
But not all my mistakes are behind me. We're beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women, and that they can all be laid at my feet--two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear...
