Advanced Copies & All That Jazz

A reminder that the Mine to Possess ARC contest closes Sunday, so if you haven't entered, hop to it.

Talking about ARCs, I'm sure you guys would threaten to lynch me if I told you what ARCs I have sitting here right now, calling to me. Since I value my life, I won't tell you the titles...yet *grin*

But, if you had super-ARC powers, which books would you want advanced copies of? (Aside from Mine to Possess of course!)

That's an easy one:

Colleen Gleason's The Bleeding Dusk
JR Ward's Lover Enshrined
Anything Nora Roberts is writing.

Goes without saying, Mine to Possess.

But what I'd really like to do is read whatever you're cooking up for Hawke. That's the book I really want to read! ;o)

Well I wouldn't mind Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon, JR ward's Lover Enshrined, Dawn's Awakening by Lora leigh, Evermore by Lynn Viehl, Predatory Game and Dark Curse by Christine Feehan, To Hell and Back by lilith Saintcrow and lots of others I can't think of off the top of my head. Sigh. Now I've got to go find all the excerpts I've found and reread them.

I wouldn't mind:
Majorie's Liu "The Last Twilight"
Christine Feehan's "Predatory Game" and "Dark Curse"
Anything by Nalini (would love to see Hostage to Pleasure, but know it is too soon.)

I'd like The Mage's Daughter by Lynn Kurland. The Salt Maiden by Colleen Thompson. Destiny’s Warrior & THE DEVIL’S POSSESSION both by Heather Waters.

Kat said...

Besides Mine to Possess and Hostage to Pleasure? :)

Okay, I have to say the ARC that tops the list is Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron. I've been waiting years for that book and I just know it's going to be absolutely fantastic. August 5, 2008 is a long time away, but at least the end is finally in sight.

Acheron is the book that by far tops the list, but other ARCs I'd really love to get my hands on are Lover Enshrined by J.R. Ward, Dark Needs at Night's Edge by Kresley Cole, Dawn's Awakening by Lora Leigh, Demon Moon by Meljean Brook, The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn, and Seduce Me At Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas.

And if we go really far out to books the authors haven't even written yet (*g*), I'm hoping Kenyon writes a book for Urian, Ward books for Blaylock and Qhuinn, Leigh for both Jonas and Cable, Brook for Michael, and Cole for Cara and Regin.

Demon Moon (Meljean Brook)
Lover Enshrined (JR Ward)
Wild Ride (Crusie/Mayer)
Grimspace (Ann Aguirre)
King of Sword and Sky (CL Wilson)
Anything by Patricia McKillip

Sweet said...

Ohhh that's such a good question :)

Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs
Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
Lover Enshrined by JR Ward
Mercury's War by Lora Leigh
Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews
Witch Blood by Anya Bast
Grimspace by Ann Aguirre
Good Touch by Ann Aguirre (to be retitled)
Evermore by Lynn Viehl
Twilight Fall by Lynn Viehl

and of course Mine to Possess, Hostage to Pleasure, and whatever you have coming up for Hawke. ( I WANT HAWKE MOST OF ALL) I'm also dying to get a sneak peak at your new series Nalini. It sounds like its going to be really good. Do you have a specific number of books planned for the new series?

Kaitlin said...

Colleen Gleason's Bleeding Dusk
The next book in the Hollows series by Kim Harrison
The next book in the 7 series by Nora Roberts (book 1 was good, but it was more about setting up the series than a fully established romance)
Etc.etc.etc.

Christine said...

I love this topic. It is always so much fun to see what everyone else is dying for! I will limit my list to my current ...errr... five books on my "To Die For" List... not counting MtP, of course! :)

1. Lover Enshrined by JR Ward
2. Demon Night by Meljean Brook
(I believe this is the Meljean release Kat and Kat O+ meant to referenece ;) )
3. The next two books in C.L. Wilson's Tairen Soul Series. (I consider that one book! lol)
4. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (YA)
5. Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Nalini Singh said...

Ooooh, great lists! "Archeron" is on my list, too. And Patricia Briggs. And...pretty much everything else LOL!

I do have some of the ARCs mentioned (hee, sorry, couldn't resist!)

Sweet, "Angels' Blood" was actually meant to be a stand-alone story at the start. Then I wrote the complete first draft, and it was like - I don't want to leave this world, and there's so much more to discover here. Which hopefully, will be what readers think too! "Angel's Kiss" comes next.

At the moment it's just those two, but I have a feeling I'll want to write more. It's quite a dark world, and the hero is amazing (I'm biased, but seriously, he's hot. He's got the whole scary/sexy thing going on.)

Kat said...

Nalini - the new series sounds so exciting. I love dark :)

Christine - yes, thank you - Demon Night. I get a pass on being a half-wit after my final today, right? I have the first two C.L. Wilson books you recommended too.

Pam P said...

Oh yes, Kenyon's Acheron and the next two books in C.L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series.

Dark Needs at Night's Edge - Kresley Cole
Dagger-Star by Elizabeth Vaughan
To Taste Temptation - Elizabeth Hoyt

Zhan said...

I'd love an ARC of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron, JR Ward's Lover Enshrined, and Lora Leigh's next seal book.

Courtney said...

I am hugely comforted by the fact that the reason we can't have ARCs of Lover Enshrined right now is that JR hasn't even finished the first draft yet. I want that book! I'm rabid for the next In Death book, Evermore, Dawn's Awakening (an ARC of it recently sold for over one hundred dollars on eBay), Acheron, Witch Blood by Anya Bast (good call, sweet), and Dark Deeds at Night's Edge. And anything Angela Knight is writing, too. Also, for books that might not have been written yet, Fang and Aimee's story by Kenyon, Midnight Rising by Lara Adrian, and whatever In Death book in which McNab finally pops the question to Peabody.

Sylvia said...

For me... hmmm
forgot the title, but Kim Harrisons up coming Rachel Mrogan novel. Yipee!
JR Ward, Lover Enshrined
Evermore, Lynn Viehl
Iron Kissed, Patricia Briggs
Acheron, Sherrilyn Kenyon

My mind shutting down on me but the list is very long, very, very, long. :)

Casee said...

Decisions, decisions. :)

I'd want:

Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Virtually Hers by Gennita Low
Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Judith McNaught
Dawn's Awakening by Lora Leigh

And those are just a few that comes to mind. I agree with MaryKate, anything you're writing for Hawke would be most welcome. *g*

Anonymous said...

Nobody's mentioned Anne Bishop's Tangled Webs

MaryKate said...

Somehow I missed the fact that Elizabeth Vaughan has a new one coming out. I simply adored her Warlords series. I can't wait to read whatever she's cooked up now.

Nalini Singh said...

Oh definitely on the Anne Bishop one! I'm so waiting for that.

MaryKate, I didn't know about the Vaughan either. Thanks for the heads up.

Also, the next JD Robb. ANY JD Robb!!

Shari C said...

Of course, 'Mine to Possess' and Sherrilyn Kenyon's 'Acheron'; also any of J R Ward's books, Jenna Black's and Christine Feehan's.

Darla said...

ALL...I want them all!

Lover Enshrined, JR Ward
Dark Curse, Predatory Game, Turbulent Seas by Christine Feehan
The rest of her blood brothers series by Nora Roberts
Lord of the Underworld Series, & Layell story by Gena Showalter
Shifter and Atlantis Unleashed by Aylssa Day
Mine to Possess by YOU!
Rogue by Rachel Vincent
and many many more!!!

Christina said...

I have to agree with the general consensus that I want Hawke's story! ^_^ MTP & HTP too, please

Hmm, anything by Nora Roberts, or PC Cast, Kresley Cole's Dark Needs at Nights edge (andDark Desires after Dusk), Robin D. Owen's Keeper of the Flame, . . .

I'm sure I wouldn't say no to any ARC, really : )

Christina said...

I keep seeing Christine Feehan's name, and it reminded me of Turbulent Seas which is Joley's book (in her Drake Sisters series). Can't wait for Joley & Ilya's story!

lisa scar said...

virtually hers by gennita low
Grimm's story (Horde Wars) by Sherri L. King
Dawn's Awakening by Lora Leigh
Predatory Game by Christine Feehan
and Hawk's story by Nalini Singh

Ann Aguirre said...
