(MYTHOS ACADEMY #4.5)
by Jennifer Estep
Expected Publication: June 25, 2013
Young Adult -- Paranormal/Fantasy
I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was — until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.
Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.
I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe. I can’t tell her, but this is my story …
WHY I'M WAITING: I freaking love this series and am super excited to see that we are getting novella in Logan's point of view! He is one of my book boyfriends and I want to know what is going on in his head especially after the events of Crimson Frost.
OFF HER GAME
(TEXAS HIGHLANDERS HOCKEY #1)
by Suzan Butler
Expected Publication: March 25, 2013
Penalty Number One: Men
Making time for men and relationships doesn’t fit into Valerie Chase’s game plan. This crisis-counselor-turned-cocktail-waitress knows the score—Men are a distraction. But when a certain hockey player tempts her wild side, part of her wants to indulge in a little harmless fun.
Penalty Number Two: Desire
As the star center for the Texas Highlanders, Darren Moran's good looks and deadly determination make him a fan favorite. But after the previous season’s disaster, the last thing he needs is to let some woman crawl under his skin. But… Valerie is different. She brings out the best in him—both on and off the ice—and he’s not about to lose her.
Penalty Number Three: Passion
When the game moves to the next level, Darren and Val have got to call timeout. An unplanned romance is a game-thrower, a sinful temptation that neither of them can afford. After all, there’s no way to have order in matters of the heart when the penalties tally up to an ejection from the game.
WHY I'M WAITING: Sports romances are one of my guilty pleasures especially ones with hockey players. Plus it is always fun to find new authors!
