BOOKISH Sunday #03

Ideata da Violet N. del blog SideraNoctis.
Rubrica della Domenica nella quale verranno elencati i libri che ho scoperto dopo una giornata di fancazzeggio su Amazon, Blog Vari, WebSite di Editori e Librerie.

E dopo la recensione de I sogni del Diavolo che trovate a questo LINK (raccolta di racconti che vi consiglio davvero di prendere in considerazione), passiamo al consueto Bookish Sunday che, purtroppo, la settimana scorsa è saltato ç_ç
Ma recuperiamo oggi, quindi non preoccupatevi!
Cosa ho trovato di... particolare questa settimana?
Eccovi alcuni titoli che sono finiti dritti dritti nella mia WISH LIST!

SINOSSI: He was sure those golden eyes would be the last thing he'd see. Paranormal writer Dakota Brooks can't stop fantasizing about the man he desires most – his sexy and mysterious older stepbrother, Dalton. Ever since his mother married Dalton's father when Dakota was a geeky teen, Dakota has been yearning to get close to him. He never pursued the hunky Dalton for fear of what it would do to the huge extended family he now has, but beneath the glow of the full moon, sparks begin to fly.
Dalton Summers can't trust himself around Dakota. He always thought his younger stepbrother was gorgeous and smart, the whole package, but he's strictly off-limits. Not only is Dakota his stepbrother – and he stubbornly ignores the fact that they barely know each other – but Dakota's human. He's always kept his distance to hide his feelings, but finally, fate intervenes at a family reunion.
When Dakota lands himself in trouble in the deep Maine woods, Dalton saves him and is forced to reveal what he truly is. One night of discovery isn't enough for either of them, but Dalton knows he still isn't free to pursue Dakota. Older and stronger forces are at work, upheaving their lives as they realize that being stepbrothers is the least of their problems.
Stepbrother Wolf is the first steamy paranormal gay romance novel in the ongoing "Stepmates" series.

SINOSSI: I have a clock for a heart…
And the man who put it there tried to take it out.
Time Collectors are modern day genies capable of exchanging wishes for time. Elizabeth Wicker lives within a steampunk world riddled with the supernatural. Among the stories of witches, Bacts and other monsters, Time Collectors remain as the greatest hushed secret among the noble families.
They are temptation's greatest tools. A contract with a Time Collector is a guaranteed death sentence, and for some the prize isn't worth the price.
But when Elizabeth is struck down by a fatal heart attack, she finds herself trapped beneath a Time Collector's blade. With no time left to offer, she makes a desperate sacrifice at a second chance of life.
If there's only one truth, it is a Time Collector will always come back to collect.

SINOSSI: Little Red Riding Hood is all grown up. And the wolf doesn’t scare her at all.
Rosalind is an outcast in her own town. Known as Ruby for the birthmark on her neck, it is believed she was touched by death during birth. But she doesn’t care. She’s led a happy life with the support and tutelage of the village wise woman and the loving attention of her stepbrother, Rafe.
Of course, now that she’s older, she is secretly and passionately drawn to Rafe in a not so sisterly way. And Rafe has secrets of his own.
For Rafe, the full moon means three nights as a wolf, a freedom and form he loves. However, as he accepts his desire to devour Ruby when he’s in his human form, he leaves to protect them both.
Now he’s back, and not only does he intend to change his relationship with Ruby, but a hunter is following him. Ruby and Rafe have to put an end to the threat that wants them both dead before they can live their happy ending.

SINOSSI: In the original Snow Queen story, the queen did much more damage than simply freezing a city.
Gia’s stepmother was cold and distant, a woman with very definite ideas of what was acceptable and not—especially for her son, Colin. Her cruelty hurt both children but was worse for Colin, making him blind to his talents and his passion.
Colin put as much distance as possible between his mother and himself as soon as he could, but the damage she inflicted was done. His art, something he once loved to do, now caused him pain. He had found success as an actuary and stayed in touch with Gia, but creating art was no longer a part of his life.
Gia, a high school teacher, knows Colin is not doing work he loves. He should be painting. She watched him draw in secret for years, his talent overwhelming. Deciding she’s the only one who can help him, Gia gets Colin to agree to let her stay with him for her summer vacation. She claims she needs time and space to write, but she has two other goals as well.
Her plan is to reintroduce art to his life and pose for him, hoping that this will change his life, and determine once and for all if his passion–and theirs–have a chance.

Ebbene sì, gli Stepbrother tornano a farla quasi da padrone <,,< pensavo di aver finalmente chiuso con il genere ma non sono riuscita a resistere a questi titoli, perdonatemi, sono un'inguaribile Sin addicted!

Tanto tanto tempo fa, circa 12/13 anni fa? Sì, qualcosa di simile, in ogni caso, tanti anni fa scovai, in una piccola libreria di Ravenna, stipato tra libri dalle copertine sgargianti, quasi dimenticato nel suo angolino polveroso, il primo volume di una saga che mi conquistò letteralmente!
Sto parlando di ANHARRA: il trono della follia (Anharra #01).
Dopo aver divorato questo primo volume durante la mia prima spedizione archeologica nel Sultanato dell'Oman, riuscii a trovare anche il secondo (che quasi non toccò il mio comodino!) ma, sfiga volle, che per il terzo la Mondadori decidesse di cambiare la collana di pubblicazione.
Così, senza una spiegazione, il terzo volume di Anharra venne spostato sulla collana Urania Millemondi e io ne persi traccia. Non vi dico quanto ho penato per riuscire a trovare questo ultimo terzo volume, ma tanto questa serie mi ha stregata che ogni qual volta mi torna alla mente, ne cerco traccia su internet e amazon, nella speranza che qualche anima pia abbia messo in vendita il terzo volume.
Ebbene... potete immaginare la mia gioia questa mattina quando, digitando su Amazon il titolo della serie (e devo ringraziare l'autore della serie Giulio Leoni - J. P. Rylan), quest'ultimo mi ha mostrato TUTTI E TRE I VOLUMI disponibili in kindle version a soli 0.99 euro!!
Ovvio, li ho comprati tutti, anche se prima ho controllato in giro per internet, sperando che non si trattasse di uno scherzo di cattivo gusto.
Quindi ecco, questa mattina l'acquisto compulsivo mi ha resa un po' più felice!
Grazie infinite Giulio Leoni, grazie per questo splendido regalo!


Una serie che credetemi... VA ASSOLUTAMENTE LETTA!
SINOSSI del primo volume: In un'epoca di grande violenza e di grande magia, il mondo conosciuto è diviso in quattro terre. La più misteriosa e pericolosa è il Vuoto, un deserto inesplorato, popolato di miraggi e strani popoli. Qui, secoli prima, Vemerin il Re Pazzo ha eretto la città di Anharra, dove ha regnato con il suo esercito composto di esseri umani e creature terribili. Ora Vemerin è morto, sepolto in una tomba custodita da sette statue colossali, di cui nessuno conosce l'esatta ubicazione. Anche dell'antica Anharra è rimasto solo il ricordo confuso, ma si racconta di tesori favolosi nascosti tra le sue rovine, tesori che l'impero che governa le terre conosciute ha deciso di conquistare.

Per oggi è tutto, quindi!
Vi auguro una buona Domenica e fatevi forza, domani è già Lunedì! Godetevi questa giornata!
