Weekend Shop: Books part 1

Today I brought three new release book. Was surprise to see it already on shelf so early! I was too excited to discover that Roxanne St. Claire's Hunt Her Down and Julia London's Summer of Two Wishes was available and didn't hesitated to grab my copy of each books! I've already been a fan of their work for the longest time, since I discover them through friends many years ago. Although I read a lot of Julia London's contemporary more than I did with historical. I'm pretty much up to date with Roxanne St. Claire's Bullet Catcher series/trilogy books and is now going to start on the latest Bullet Catcher book, Hunt Her Down very soon. I'm looking forward to it!

Leslie Parrish, who also write under Leslie Kelly (Contemporary Romance), is a "new to me" author. Her first debut book from a dark, gritty Romantic Suspense, is available at every store. It is a new series book she writing. I recently just pick up her second book Pitch Black and well pick up the third book Black at Heart very soon!

Read the synopsis of each three books from these wonderful three authors, below. If you want to learn more about the authors, click their names. Hope it entice you to buy copies of each books :) Have a good weekend!

Pitch Black by Leslie Parrish

Former profiler Alec Lambert would give anything to catch the Professor, a serial killer who lure his victims with Internet scams. Now working with the Black CATs, Alec finally has his chance.

When two teen boys are lured to a cruel, icy death, Alec team up with reclusive scam expert Samantha Dalton, who may be able to find out where the madman will strike next. Despite Alec's intense attraction to Sam, he's fiercely determined to keep their relationship professional. As they draw ever closer to discovering the Professor's identity an stopping his murderous rampage, they realize Sam is the psychotic killer's new obsession. And possibly his next target...

Summer of Two Wishes by Julia London

Whose wife was she?

Macy Lockhart's life shattered in a moment with the news that her husband, Finn-serving in the military overseas-has been killed in the line of duty. Their ardent and devoted marriage is over, leaving Macy alone, empty, directionless. But while she tries to sustain herself with memories of Finn, the quiet, strong man who made her and their small Texas ranch the center of his life, it is wealthy Wyatt Clark who slowly brings joy back into her life. Her love for Wyatt may be less romantic than the breathless passion she'd once shared with Finn, but she vow to cherish him, and their marriage is happy and as solid as a rock. Until the day that Finn, miraculously spared from death, returns home to claim his bride...

How can a woman choose between the two man she loves? And how will she make the right choice-for herself and everyone involved? In a deeply moving, passionate novel, New York Times bestselling author Julia London illuminates the questions hidden in a woman's heart.

Furious at his past betrayal, Maggie refuses Dan's help, yet the passion between them still burns irresistibly hot. Then Ramon strikes terrifyingly hot. The Jimenez family will do anything to gain the key they believe Maggie holds to their hidden fortune, and the rejoined lovers are forced into a race against time, trying to unlock the secret before everything they hold most dear is destroyed....forever
