Waiting on Wednesday/WWW Wednesday (5)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
 House of Immortal Pleasures by Katie Salidas
This is already out, but it is more of a budget thing that waiting for a release day.  I have a couple more books to get through before I can let myself buy another round of books.  But I won a copy of Katie's Immortalis Carpe Noctem and was really happy I got to read it.  So, I am excited to try more of her work.

Blindfolded and kidnapped, Daphne is whisked away to the famed, House of Immortal Pleasures, a Vampire-run Brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.

Sometimes the only way to mend a broken heart is to get back in the saddle. At least that is how Daphne’s friends see it. And since Daphne isn’t showing any signs of letting that happen, they take it into their own hands. With a few shots of liquid courage, a pat on the ass, and a donated gold card, Daphne is unwillingly sent into fantasy room 123 to meet her creature of the night, Connor.

It’s Connor’s job to seduce and entice Daphne to try all the expensive, sexual services on the menu. And he is prepared to do just that, until he peers into her mind and sees the damage done by her broken heart. After learning of her past pain, Connor’s plans change. No more is this a game of seduction to pad the pockets of the brothel owner. Connor decides to lavish Daphne with real attention and affection. Something she desperately needs. He will heal her heart the only way he can, by showing her she is beautiful, desirable, and sexy.
 Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
A Hush Hush Novel, book 2
Release Date: October 19, 2010

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home. 

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine? 

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Should Be Reading.

To play along, just answer the 3 questions...

*What are you currently reading?
  - Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

*What have you recently finish reading?
  - Succubus Shadows by Richelle Mead

*What do you think you'll read next?
  - I'm not really sure, as I read Hush Hush out of pure impulse.  Maybe the second book in the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning.

I still have Hush Hush to read, I actually bought it a while ago, but I haven't got the time to read it yet. But I must say the cover of Crescendo looks amazing and I am really looking forward o it after Hush Hush.

I'll probably read Crescendo to see if it's any better than Hush, Hush. Never heard of House of Immortal Pleasures but it sure sounds steamy! Hope you get through your TBR pile soon so you can read it!

T.V and Book Addict said...

Oh my goodness! I really want to read Cresendo. I hope it's better than Hush, Hush. Hush, Hush was really fun and I liked it but I didn't love it. I WANT to love this next book. :)
