Last week’s pick went so well that I decided to give it another try. I read a small excerpt in back of the last weeks book and found myself drawn to it. Much to my surprise, it was in my tbr pile. Here’s what I pulled out:
Here are the blurbs:
Into Thin Air~
A twelfth-century Welsh warrior turned Guardian who has protected his charges for nearly a thousand years, Gawan’s got less than twenty-four days left on duty until he can shed his wings and finally become mortal. But the higher-ups have different plans. The beautiful, soaking-wet woman Gawan finds by the side of the road near Castle Grimm is actually his soul mate, and it’s up to him to save her life.
What he doesn’t know is that Ellie is practically a ghost already. She doesn’t remember who she is, or how she got to the north of England, where her only chances to rejoin the living is this mouthwatering angel with a funny accent. Aided by the castle’s eccentric spirits, they set out to solve the mystery of her near death, but neither Ellie nor Gawan is prepared for the soul-searing passion they discover…or the sacrifices that may lead to an eternity of love.
Eli Conners expected hired mercenary Ray Vereker to be a tank of a guy with forty tattoos–not a gorgeous creature with considerable karate skills. While Eli certainly needs Ray’s help, he thinks she could use a little of what he’s offering…a down-and-dirty, body-scorching passion of the forever kind.
Ray’s as good as any man when it comes to storming enemy compounds and loading an AK-47, but Eli’s strong sensuality and gentle touch leave her shaken and stirred. And really, who could blame a girl for succumbing to mind-blowing temptation in the steamy jungle? But now it’s back to business. If only Ray wasn’t feeling hot, bothered, dizzy, and just a little bit, well, queasy.
The last thing either of these unlikely lovers expects is to be expecting. Suddenly, Ray’s precise, no-nonsense mission is veering wildly off course, derailed by raging hormones, out-of-control desire, and a delirious love that is completely unexpected…
Have you read either of these books? If not, what are you reading? I’m torn. Both of these sound great!
