Book Club Thursday:Free Day!

Hi Readers! Welcome back to this weeks Book Club Thursday. Thanks for joining us. We are having our monthly Free Day where each of us here at BCT can write about anything about books. So what to pick? Sometimes it's easy, sometimes not. So...
     I decided to share titles of books that I am totally looking forward to reading this year.

First Pick: The Beast by J R Ward

Available April 5th

Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series “so popular, I don’t think there’s a reader today who hasn’t at least heard of [it]” (USA Today).

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…

For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…

And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from...

I still love this series and I don't mind revisits with the original characters. Rhage aka "Hollywood" has always been one of my favorites in the series. One month and counting!

Second Pick: The Visitor by Amanda Stevens

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm the Graveyard Queen.
Restoring lost and abandoned cemeteries is my profession, but I'm starting to believe that my true calling is deciphering the riddles of the dead. Legend has it that Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has ever been able to solve. For over half a century, the answer has remained hidden within the strange headstone inscriptions and intricate engravings. Because uncovering the mystery of that tiny, remote graveyard may come at a terrible price.

Years after their mass death, Ezra Kroll's disciples lie unquiet, their tormented souls trapped within the walls of Kroll Cemetery, waiting to be released by someone strong and clever enough to solve the puzzle. For whatever reason, I'm being summoned to that graveyard by both the living and the dead. Every lead I follow, every clue I unravel brings me closer to an unlikely killer and to a destiny that will threaten my sanity and a future with my love, John Devlin.

This is a different kind of paranormal series. Amelia restores old cemeteries for a living. Of course, she sees some of the residents there, both good and bad. I've been looking forward to book four for a while. Amanda Stevens also writes romantic suspense novels.

Third Pick: 'Til Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick

Available April 19th
Published by Berkley

Calista Langley operates an exclusive “introduction” agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now, a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning—a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.

Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn’t trust her. Scarred by his past, he’s learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve.

But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista’s own secret past—and that only her death will satisfy the stalker...

My final pick is a historical by one of my favorites- romantic suspense author Jayne Ann Krentz writing this book by her Amanda Quick name. She is a comfort read of mine and lately her stories have moved from Regency era to Victorian for a change of pace.
Thanks for stopping by this week. Join me and visit my fellow Book Club Thursday authors and see what they picked for their Free Day. And join us next week, March 17th. Until then, Happy Reading!
