In My Mailbox #7

In my Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, that features books I’ve received for review, and purchased during the current week. In My Mailbox is a great way for bloggers and readers to socialize and network their blogs, and to share upcoming releases!

Books I received for review this past week:

Chase Me


Incubi, sirens, vampires, Valkyerie, faeries, and were-creatures live secretly alongside humanity in this gritty, sexy series.

In the second installment, Valkyrie archaeologist Lorin Schlessinger and werewolf geologist Garbriel Lupinsky are assigned to work together on a dig site. Gabriel’s methodical work practices and Lorin’s inexplicable attraction to him grate on the archaeologist’s nerves. But when she unlocks a cryptic box that sends a signal to intergalactic enemies, Lorin will have to set aside her feelings and work with Gabriel…or risk losing everything.

In Victorian London, where science skirts the line between magic and mechanics, one stubborn miss will face shadows from her past, demons from her desires, and choices that will forever shape who she is.

A brand-new, sexy series from Karina Cooper featuring fearless heroine Cherry St. Croix-debutante by day, bounty hunter by night-set in an alternate London where proper Victorian society sits above a seedy steampunk underworld teeming with dubious loyalties, advanced technology, and incredible magic

Then AmericameetsPrince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself- and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

  10. usagi says:

    Aside from the VERY BAD AUTHOR BEHAVIOR re: “The Selection”, it was actually a decent read. I hope you enjoy that and all of your other books this week. :)

    My IMM for this week!

    • MissVain says:

      Hi Usagi :)

      I apologize but I’m unfamiliar with the author bad behavior, so many scandals go on between authors and reviewers on GR, I try to stay out of it, but that’s unfortunate.

  11. Alexa says:

    Never heard of Chase Me but the series sounds really good so I hope you enjoy it.

    Ah The Selection, everyone is talking about that one with all of the drama behind the author and the book. I hope you enjoy it though, although I don’t htink I will personally ever read it.

    Of course I bougth Lover Reborn this week as well but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet because I’m in the middle of three books right now that I need to finish. :)

    OH btw you are mentioned in my IMM this week!

    • MissVain says:

      Hey Alexa :)

      I picked up the first book called Taste Me at the Borders going out of business sale for cheap, so I figured it would be a good pick.

      I hadn’t heard about The Selection drama?? I think there was an issue with the authors agent, but I hadn’t heard anything about the author…I heard the book was good though.

      Loved Lover Reborn! :) Thanks for visiting.

  12. Oooohhh! You got The Selection! I LOVED THAT ONE! Hope you do too! Btw, Chase me sounds pretty good! I’ll have to look into that one more! ;)

    • MissVain says:

      Since you loved The Selection, I figured I would too! I’m hoping Chase Me is as good as it sounds!!;) XO

  13. Mo says:
