Books received for review:


Kiss Of The Goblin Prince

Trapped for centuries in the bleak Shadowlands, Dai clings to his humanity with a thirst for knowledge. But now he’s free of the goblin curse, and some would say he knows too much—he can make nature bend to his will, influence the minds of others, and command magic. Yet love eludes him. Then he meets Amanda, a single mother with a sick daughter whom he feels compelled to protect. But could she possibly place her trust in the kiss of a goblin prince?

 Romeo Redeemed

All will be revealed for fans who have breathlessly awaited the sizzling sequel to Juliet Immortal. This time Romeo takes center stage and gets one chance, and one chance only, to redeem himself.

Cursed to live out eternity in his rottedcorpse, Romeo, known for his ruthless, cutthroat ways, is given the chance to redeem himself by traveling back in time to save the life of Ariel Dragland. Unbeknownst to her, Ariel is important to both the evil Mercenaries and the love-promoting Ambassadors and holds the fate of the world in her hands. Romeo must win her heart and make her believe in love, turning her away from her darker potential before his work is discovered by the Mercenaries. While his seduction begins as yet another lie, it soon becomes his only truth. Romeo vows to protect Ariel from harm, and do whatever it takes to win her heart and soul. But when Ariel is led to believe his love is a deception, she becomes vulnerable to Mercenarymanipulation, and her own inner darkness may ultimately rip them apart.

Of Poseidon

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate withfish.

What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.

Books I won:


I won this book from Raimy @ Readaraptor! in her first Blogoversary giveaway! She rocks!! Thank you Raimy XOXO. I’m really excited to read this book because I’ve read fantastic reviews on it, and seriously is dark romance novel with a vampire. I prefer my books to be dark just like my chocolate. ♥


Books I purchased this week:

I purchased The Unbecoming of MaraDyer because my blogger buddy Alexa @ Pages of Forbidden Love has recommended this book to me because she knows its will appeal to my love for dark and gritty romance. Also while I have been forcing persuading her to read more of my favorite adult series she’s urging me to read a few of her young adult favorites! ♥Thank you for the recommendation Alexa xoxo

  5. Tanyaw1224 says:

    Good choices =) I was shocked by Cinder. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be good because I thought it mirrored on Cinderella. Boy was I wrong. Happy reading =)

    • MissVain says:

      You know what Tanya, I too was hesitant to read for the same reason. Shame on me because after reading all the rave reviews I regret my reluctance to read it!;)
      Thanks for visiting!

  6. Burgandy Ice says:

    Sweet!!!! You got Of Poseidon!! It’s like my fav cover, for some reason. Please read and let me know what you think!!! jajajajajaja

    I totally LOVED your long comment about falling asleep while commenting and wondering where you saw Dr Seuss’s b-day – hilarious. :-) Workin’ (or playin’?) too hard?! :-D

    Soooo many great books you have. Too fun. Enjoy!!!! -Burgandy Ice

    • MissVain says:

      How about a little bit of both, juggling it all with blogging!;) basically burning the candle at both ends! HA!;) Dr Seuss!! Lol

  7. Alexa says:

    Yay my evil plan on getting you to read books I love for a change is working! Although I must get on reading more adult books but I don’t know when the heck that is going to happen! I can’t freakin wait for Dragon Bound to come in the mail because so many people rave about that series and it must be good if you just bought the most recent book.

    I hope you enjoy all of the pretty books you got this week, can’t wait for the reviews.

    • MissVain says:

      Oh yours and my evil plan is working, corrupting you will my favorite adult series, one book at a time . muahahahaha

      Okay so last week B&N had a big sale and so I picked up Orracle’s Moon for only $3.99. So I own the first one but have yet to read them. :)

  8. Lots of great books this week! I got the Goblin Prince book too, and I ordered Eventide from the B&N sale, it should be here next week :) Happy reading! Book Savvy Babe’s IMM

    • MissVain says:

      I hope the Goblin Prince is good!! The cover alone leads me to believe it will be!;) Oh I picked up Evertide through the B&N sale as well. Wasn’t that a great sale?!! It ended too soon.:)

  9. You will love The Unbecoming of MaraDyer it’s such a great read! Also your the second person I saw with “Romeo Redeemed” I’m going to have to take a look at that book!

      Thanks for visiting Tiffany!

  12. Great IMM this week!! I can’t wait to read Of Poseidon!! The other books look awesome too (I still haven’t read Cinder!) – happy reading!!

    Check out my IMM for the week:

  13. Ahhh, it seems like EVERYONE got Romeo Redeemed and I can’t help but be SUPER jealous.


    And you totally got a ton of cool paranormal books in your haul too.

    Happy reading :-)

    My IMM

    • MissVain says:


      Romeo Redeemed is on netgalley!! Go request it, Stacey Jay is Awesome!!;)
      No need to be jealous, when you can get it too.:)

      Thanks for visiting my IMM post!!;)

  14. I love dark romances, too. Give me a BDB, LOTU, IAD and I’m guaranteed to be in heaven! I’ll have to check out When the Sea is Rising Red based on what you say ;) And Poseidon I had heard about before and thought it had potential. I’ve seen the Dark Ink chronicles on the shelves but I think I passed on them b/c I had too many other books in my arms at the time. And I’m sure Stormwalker is somewhere in my wishlist, too :)

    My My IMM. Have a great week!
    Kristin @myparahangover

    • MissVain says:

      Kristin, give me a BDB book anyday and I’m a happy happy girl!;) I do love Gena Showalter and Kressley Cole, it’s just that I’m a bit behind on those books. But in counting the days until Thors book!!!!;)

      Well B&N had a two day $3.99 mass market paperbacks sale on all adult PNR favorites so I couldn’t resist picking up these books!!;)

      Thanks for visiting!!;)

  15. Caitlin says:

    I got Mara Dyer this week too!! Hope we both enjoy it

    The Cait Files

  16. Is Oracle’s Moon out early or something??

    • MissVain says:

      Must have an early release date because I purchased it a couple days ago when all us blogger girls were on twitter going GaGa over the B&N discount PNR sale. I picked it up for only $3.99. Delivered at my doorstep Thursday or Friday!;)

  17. Jamie says:

    Love your IMM posts, Miss Vain ;-) I have a got a lot of the same books as you did this week. I didn’t post all of my B&N steals, but I did put up Oracle’s Moon ;-)

    Here’s what’s in our mailboxes!


    • MissVain says:

      Thanks Jamie:)

      Gotta love those PNR adult favorite sales!!! I was so sad because I went back to buy more online and the sale was off.:(

      • Cat Russell says:

        I completely missed it! I browsed through and told myself I would buy some stuff the next day and when I went back it was over. Just my luck.

        • MissVain says:

          I bought the mass market paperbacks, and then two days later I wanted to buy more, and of course they were already off sale…I’m kicking myself now, because you can’t beat half off! I’m sorry you missed out. :(
          Hey on a good note at least you have that cheesy HR to read LOL.

  18. Burgandy Ice says:

    AAck!! Ok… thx for the heads-up. I was trying to stay away from NetGalley JUST IN CASE something like Of Poseidon was on there, but knowing it is…. I had to request it!!!! Ha!!! Thx!!

    So, I’m reading Angelfall later this month… you want to read with me? I’ve got two others for sure and I just posted something (rather lamely, I might add, although the angel pic is cool) about a Readalong, which I think I made up, but I’m not sure. If you’re schedule’s not already jamb-packed, which mine is… but I want to read these angel books anyhooo… and some of ‘em are committed-to-review anyway.

    Ok… long answer back at ya! Ha! thx for the headsup. Have a great night!

  19. Mara Dyer was pretty good. A little something missing for me but I really think you will enjoy it. I also love the Charley Davidson series although I haven’t had a chance to finish Second Grave on the Right. I really want to read Cinder and The Sea is Rising Red. Those sound fantastic! I haven’t read Juliet Immortal but have heard a lot of people excited about Romeo Redeemed. Glad to finally realize that is the sequel lol I also received Of Poseidon that I am really excited about. Here’s My IMM if you have time :-)

  20. Dani C. says:

    Looks like you have a great haul! I will have to check out some of these books…

    Thanks for sharing!
