C791 by Eve Langlais

I love SciFi romance, and this series is interesting. This is the first book and deals with the initial revolt of the cyborgs. It's steamy, but also delves into the man vs machine question. Book 5 is releasing this week and has been on pre-order for a while. I'm featuring it on my other blog if you want to hop over and take a peek. ~ DM

BOOK 1 of the Cyborgs: More Than Machines Series


Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost.

Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn’t find the answers he’s looking for, he does discover that affection and lust aren’t just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism—once a man—choose?

Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn’t done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs—and ignites a fury for vengeance.

THE WISH LIST by Gabi Stevens

I met Gabi at Bubicon in Albuquerque, NM last year, but only recently did this work come up on my reading list. I ended up reading these books back to back, and got more drunk on magic than her reluctant fairy godmothers. These stories are pure reading fun. ~ DM

Book 1 of the Time of Transition Trilogy

In the magical world a Time of Transition occurs every seventy years. Old Council members step down and new ones are chosen, but the biggest change is the appointment of the Fairy Godmothers. Unlike their role in storybooks, Fairy Godmothers protect the barrier between the magical and human world.

Only this time the transition won’t be smooth.

When Kristin Montgomery discovers her three aunts are fairy godmothers and she's next in line for the job, her uncomplicated life disappears like magic. No, not like magic; it is magic. Kristin not only has to deal with burgeoning magical powers, but also a reluctant arbiter, a selfish sprite, and a suave French sorcerer. When one of them turns out to be the bad guy, Kristin must learn to trust her heart and her instincts to keep herself and the ones she loves out of danger.

Set in contemporary San Diego, The Wish List combines fantasy with romance with and a touch of humor. ~ Gabi Stevens

BREATH OF FIRE by Liliana Hart

This is not your average dragon book and I've read a lot of them. The heroine is both the focus and the power of the story. I was hooked from my first glimpse of Rena Drake. . . and not just because Liliana is one of my overall favorite authors. ~ DM


Rena Drake is descended from a society that was created 500,000 years before Atlantis—the Drakán. Since their Banishment to the human world, Rena has become an Enforcer for her people, keeping the peace among her dragon brethren and making sure their identities stay a secret. 

When a group of rogue Drakán begins killing others of their race who refuse to join the army of The Destroyer—the man from Prophecy they believe will finally be the true king—Rena has no choice but to take action. Killing others of their kind is an automatic death sentence, and Rena’s job demands that she draw up a warrant of execution before they kill again. Every clue leads Rena to believe that Julian, leader of one of the five clans, is The Destroyer. But when Rena confronts Julian to kill him, she discovers that he is her lifemate, deemed so by the gods from the blue mating fire that engulfs them—a power thought lost since the Banishment.

Matters are further complicated by Noah Ford, a psychic who works for the FBI. Rena knows he’s keeping his true identity a secret from her, but she’s drawn to him just as she’s drawn to Julian. Noah vows to become her protector against The Destroyer, but it’s going to be difficult for Noah to keep his promise when her life force is tied to the man she’s destined to kill.
