I love Kenyon's Dark-hunter, Dream-hunter, and Were-hunter series. I read the excerpt for The Guardian and it blew me away. I really can't wait for it to come out! If you want to find out more about this book, go here.
November 1st seems like so far away!

Mr. Darcy's Bite can be purchased here.
Mr. Darcy's Bite
Mary Lydon Simonson
Mr. Darcy has seemingly been courting Elizabeth Bennett for months, but hasn't popped the question. Elizabeth wonders what Mr. Darcy's purpose could be, after all Jane and Bingley have been married for over six months. Darcy invites Elizabeth to Pemberley along with his sister and cousin, Anne, and promises to reveal a secret, which will affect Elizabeth's decision about him as a husband.
When I read the blurb for this book, I was intrigued. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book and werewolf/shapeshifter romances are my favorite genre. A combination of the two seemed like a dream come true, and Mr. Darcy's Bite doesn't disappoint. The only small quibble, that I had with the book was that the author's voice seemed a little to modern at times. However, this didn't detract much from the enjoyment of the book as a whole. Darcy and Elizabeth are the same great couple, that I expected, and I was happy to see Anne get a bigger role in this book.
All in all, Mr. Darcy's Bite is a great read, which I highly recommend.
NOTE: I was sent this book in return for an impartial review.

Ash couldn't remember, who she was and had been hospitalized in a mental institution for three years. The fact that Ash isn't human, is an added mystery for her. Searching for answers to her past, Ash runs into Nicholas St. Croix. Nicholas knows that Ash must be a demon, because she looks like his girlfriend, who was killed by a demon posing as his mother. Nicholas decides to use Ash to get to the demon posing as his mother. Meanwhile, Lucifer and the demon posing as Nicholas' mother, also, have nefarious plans for Ash.
Demon Marked is an intense, enjoyable paranormal romance with multi-faceted characters and plenty of action. Ash is learning and experiencing life, and, although she is part demon, her goodness shines through. Nicholas has cut himself off from his emotions, in an effort to combat the demon, who is posing as his mother. This has made him almost as bad as the demon, whom he seeks revenge upon. Slowly, almost against his will, Nicholas begins to care for Ash, and this love saves him in the end. Demon Marked is a great love story, and I can't wait for the next story in the series, Michael's story.
NOTE: I purchased this book and gave an impartial review.
