ARC

I have to squee: I got my very first physical ARC sent to me direct from a publisher! I feel s accomplished *preens* I was so excited I took a picture to mark the occassion. I clearly didn’t think about the placement of my thumb. It’s called Waterfell. Thank you, HarlequinTeen Australia!

Embedded image permalinkTHE GIRL WHO WOULD BE QUEEN
Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father’s betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa’s upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age.

Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa’s mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?

Fireblood

To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.

When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin.

Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince’s first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult.

When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out.

But Zara is uncertain about a future under the Rebels’ command and where the prince’s heart truly lies. She must decide who to trust, what to believe, and what she’s truly fighting for before the king destroys all of Karm, including her heart.

I picked this one up on Netgalley. I absolutely love it when you’ve added a book to your to-reads list then recognise the cover and have auto-approval! Also, did I mention PRINCESSES?

Dark Wolf Running (Bloodrunners, #5)

With his sharp gaze locked on the most magnificent female he’d ever seen, Wyatt Pallaton did his best to hold himself back. Of course, Elise Drake was hardly just any female. Fiery and cool, strong, yet at the same time achingly vulnerable, she’d turned his entire world on its head.

No matter how bloody difficult it proved to be, he was done letting her pretend he didn’t even exist. Done with letting her fight her own battles. Done driving himself slowly into this maddening state of frustrated desire. One way or another, things were about to change.

Come hell or high water, she was done running….

Sometimes I just feel like a grown-up book.

    Yay for your first physical ARC. I did a happy dance when I got my first too, although, I still squee when I get one! 😉
    I actually read Waterfell but didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to, but I hope you do. 🙂
    I also have Fireblood which I’m excited about!
    Enjoy! 🙂

      Thank you! I’ve been blogging for over a year, so it’s nice to get a little recognition and encouragement from publishers.
