I want to say Wolf Rain, but it's not out yet. So...I'm re-reading Heart of Obsidian.

About 12 days until Wolf Rain is out in the U.S. 😀

I enjoyed Amelia Autin's Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission #8) but my favorite of the series so far was The Bodyguard's Bride-To-Be (Man on a Mission #9). I'd been looking forward to this particular h/h's story since they were first introduced.

My favorite read this week was Robyn Bachar's End Transmission (The Galactic Cold War #3) and though it was the last book in the trilogy I have my fingers crossed we will somehow get more.

I also liked Veronica Scott's Camron (Sectors New Allies #8).

I had lots of quibbles with the suspense plot, but absolutely loved the romance in Nicole Helm's Wyoming Cowboy Sniper (Carsons & Delaneys #5/Carsons & Delaneys: Battle Tested).

Currently reading another old Avon Velvet Glove category, Carla Neggers' The Knotted Skein. I do miss the days of 80s and 90s category romances if only because there was such a wider variety of not only lines (since it wasn't only Harlequin publishing them), but settings as well.

Only 11 more days until Wolf Rain releases. Almost to the single digits. I have been fighting the urge to reread (since I did a complete series reread in December as well as a novellas-only reread earlier this month...not to mention a bunch of single book rereads this year already). But I may have to give in next week and reread just Allegiance of Honor, Silver Silence, and Ocean Light. That would be a constructive use of my time despite my massive TBR mountain, right?

Ive read a few good ebooks lately, all within the paranormal genre..

The Deal by S C Cunningham, a woman abducted as a child makes a deal with the angels to get her out and in exchange, upon her death, she'll help hunt down other bad people.
It's no fluffy angel story as it's pretty graphic in parts when relating scenes of depravity and intent to harm. There is a lighter side - thankfully - with humorous banter and trials of love etc. Novel length and well written with very few typos.

Funeral Singer - A song for Marielle by Lilian J Wolfe, a young woman who sings in a trio at weddings etc is asked by someone to sing at a funeral and discovers that as she sings she's transported into the otherworld to help the person's soul to cross over. After freaking out and refusing other similar requests, a series of further events, including hunting down a child killer, make her realise that, in fact, singing souls 'home' is her calling in life.

Shadows Wake by Aiki Flinthart, an ongoing read, an 18yo woman has known her whole life she's different, and dangerous. She and her mother have fled to new lives more than once over the years, and now she's been 'rescued' from the people hunting her by a man who turns out to be just like her, but seems to have an ulterior motive for the rescue....

I read the entire Unlikeable Demon Hunter series by Deborah Wilde. It was quite the binge but I enjoyed them very much. It's interesting because her "Unlikeable" traits are things that wouldn't be especially unlikeable in a male character, in my opinion. If you tend to like traditional heroines, maybe try a Kindle sample before you buy. If you're a little more open minded and like heroines who are sometimes (or most of the time) a hot mess, then this is a fun series full of excitement, some graphic violence, various sexual escapades and (eventually) a HEA.
I also read Mama and the Alien Warrior by Honey Phillips and Bex McLynn. This was a good story, if you enjoy alien abduction romance. It has an actual plot and multiple well built characters with strong world building. I hope there are more from these two!

I finished my re-read of 'Kiss of Snow' and am started on 'Tangle of Need'. Eagerly awaiting 'Wolf Rain'. I've restricted this re-read to stories set in SnowDancer, but may expand depending on how fast it goes. I'm not getting as much reading done lately.

Sound like great books Diana! I'll have to look them up! Not going to get to them any time soon. I'm not reading much lately, and I've got a stack of library books. (still, but most of them are new, requests that came in. I've ended up returning most of the others because I'm n ever going to get to them in time this time.)

Kim, my sympathies. I've been in that position. I requested 3 or 4 books and they all came in at once. Then I have to decide what to read first. I would probably have that problem with 'Wolf Rain' and 'Shadow Warrior', but I'll be buying 'Wolf Rain' so will probably have it at least a couple days before the library get Feehan's book ready for pickup. Nalini's Psy/Changeling books are the only books I buy when they come out. Usually I get them from the library and wait to get a used copy, or for the paperback version to come out. But this series I buy both the hardback and the paperback copy new. I like the paperback for easy reading, but I have been known to wear them out and need a new copy after a lot of re-reads.

I'm currently up to 'Heart of Obsidian' in my re-read.
