Hostage to Pleasure & Preorders

Good news! Hostage to Pleasure is now available for pre-order on Amazon (thanks to Bel for the heads-up!).

I thought we'd talk preorder lists today - what books are you all waiting for in the coming months?


Shaymless Aymless said...

I have Dagger Star by Elizabeth Vaughan and Lover Enshrined by JR Ward on pre-order. Of course I'll order Hostage to Pleasure soon. I can't wait to read it. I am also looking forward to Robin Owens latest Heartmate book, also out this Sept.

Shaymless Aymless said...

Oh! I forgot CL Wilson's books out in Oct and Nov that will finish the Lord of the Fading Lands series.

Ohhh...I'll play - I have a book list on my computer waiting for when they appear on the library catalogue :) It includes Cast in Fury (Michelle West), The Bleeding Dusk (Colleen Gleason), Ink Experience (Melissa Marr), Seduce Me At Sunrise (Lisa Kleypas), Stormed Fortress (Janny Wurts), the next two CL Wilson books and the latest Lee Child and PJ Tracy books. Yes, rather ecletic and it doesn't count the 45 library holds I already have and the fact I am borrowing the In Death books from Kerry as I go. OK...should I be worried?

Hostage to Pleasure (of course), Lover Enshrined and Cry Wolf (yes Patricia Briggs has become a 'must buy') I need to order from the lovely Barbara at some point as they are keepers.

Ohhh, aymless - Elizabeth Vaughan has a new book? I LOVED her Warprize series!

orannia *who is now slightly disturbed by her book list and TBR pile*

Shaymless Aymless said...

Orannia - I loved the Warprize series too. Dagger Star is about a female mercenary and is set in the same world as Warprize. Ms Vaughan has hinted that it may eventually connect to the Warprize stories since she has left some questions unanswered. It out early next month in the US.

My list is veeeeeeeeeeery long but my budget is hmm.... lets say, on the underdeveloped side of the scale. So I lust over many and get only a fraction.

Of course, all my fault. Theoretically I could use the library too...

... if it weren't because I keep something like 9 out 10 books I read. (Yes, you should see the bookcases, stacks, rows on the floor and boxes under the bed and inside the closets and behind doors and... )

Or perhaps you'd be better off not...

Yeah! I will add that to my wish list.

I plan to preorder the following:

- Hostage of Pleasure!!
- The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter (really the whole series)
- Sweet Talk by Susan Mallery (along with the rest of the series)
- Not Another Bad Date by Rachel Gibson
- Girl Most Likely To by Susan Donovan (whenever this gets released)
- Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day (I could've sworn this book was gonna be released around Aug-Oct, but it says on Amazon it's gonna be released 2025. lol)

*ROFL* Gosh i have tonnes of books to wait for!

1) Hostage for Pleasure is a definite! (btw, Nalini, will this book be out earlier than its announced date?)
2) Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan (to be released this July)
3) The Dragon Master by Allyson James (to be released this Nov)
4) Pet Shop of Horrors: Tokyo Vol. 2 (to be released this June)
5) A Gentleman's Kiss Vol. 1 & 2 (to be released this Aug and Nov)
6) Junjo Romantica Vol. 6 (to be released this June)
7) This book was actually out in 2006 but it's currently out of stock and I have made an order for it, Patrick Neate's Twelve Bar Blues. The Borders bookstore here assured me I'll be able to get by the end of next month! Hurray!

Aymless, thanks for the notice about Elizabeth Vaughan's Dagger Star! I'll definitely keep a lookout for it! Loved the Warprize series.

Ohhh, thank you aymless! I'll add that to my list! I do hope we get something on the characters from kind of feels like their should be another book, don't you think?

Azteclady - I am a completely library convert. I'm just lucky that my local library system has such an amazing range of books (I just LOVE the suggestion for purchase system, although the librarians are probably very sick of seeing me suggest yet ANOTHER book :)

Have a lovely Easter everyone!

Nalini Singh said...

I'm loving these lists. I have so many of the same books on my own list - and I actually have ARCs of a couple *grin*

Tracy - I haven't put up info since the release is a year away, and I didn't want to tease too much!There are bits and pieces of info scattered througout the blog, including a teeny-tiny excerpt.

Gail Leinweber said...

I too am a big fan of the my libraries suggestion for purchase program (and the inter-library loan program that accompanies it). A glance at my hold cue nets:
Blood Noir, Laurell Hamilton
Blue Smoke and Murder, Elizabeth Lowell
Blue-Eyed Devil, Lisa Kleypas
Death Angel, Linda Howard
Small Favor, Jim Butcher
Tangled Webs, Anne Bishop (this is out I just don't have it yet)
Tribute, Nora Roberts
Undead and Unworthy, Maryjanice Davidson

I'm waiting for trips to the bookstore that will include Hostage to Pleasure, Lover Enshrined, Cry Wolf, The Wild Road(Marjorie Lui), and C E Murphey's next two books The Queen's Bastard and Hands of Flame (plus the next Joanne Walker book whenever that comes out.
All this reminds me I need to go tell the library to order Shannon Hale's Repunzel's Revenge.
And thank you kavz30 for plugging Pet Shop of Horrors: Tokyo because I hadn't realized a second series was being done.

Hostage to Pleasure, of course, is on my get-the-day-of list (I go to barnes and noble since I hate waiting for them to come in the mail) ^_^

May is a great month, so many books coming out. The Hollow by Nora Roberts (second in the Sign of Seven series) as well as The Pagan Stone (Which isn't until December--if I can wait that long).

Kresley Cole's IAD books. Back to back releases!

Christine Feehan's next book in her Sister's series, Turbulent Seas and whenever Robin Owen's lates in the summoning series comes out I am getting it.

I know there is more, but those are the ones coming to mind at the moment

LesleyW said...

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Dagger-Star by Elizabeth Vaughan and have reviewed it on my blog. If anyone wants to have a look. :) No spoilers. I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to reading more about these new characters.

Other books I'm looking forward to (apart from Hostage to Pleasure :) ) over the coming months. I think most of mine have probably been mentioned by now.

Magic Burns - Ilona Andrews (April)

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong Aug. 2008. I don't usually read YA, but Kelley is such a great storyteller I'm making an exception.

The Devil you Know - Jenna Black (Aug 2008)

Bitten to Death - Jennifer Rardin (Jaz Parks 4)

Looks like August is the month for me. :)

Jackie (Literary Escapism) said...

Man, and I thought my list was long....and it's only going to get longer once I add the books I don't have on it.

Gail - isn't the suggestion for purchase option just the best?

ShelBell and Kat your lists are amazing! I'm so impressed!

Aymless - thank you so much for that titbit! I can't wait for the update!

Slightly OT - I'm currently reading Bet Me (by Jennifer Cruise) and loving it! It's hilarious!
