Charming (Pax Arcana, #1) 

(PAX ARCANA #1) 
by Elliott James

Expected Publication: September 24, 2013
Urban Fantasy

John Charming isn't your average Prince...

He comes from a line of Charmings -- an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chainmail and crossbows to kevlar and shotguns, he was one of the best. That is-- until he became the abomination the Knights were sworn to hunt.

That was a lifetime ago. Now, he tends bar under an assumed name in rural Virginia and leads a peaceful, quiet life. One that shouldn't change just because a vampire and a blonde walked into his bar... Right?

Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1) 

(WILD CARDS #1)
by Simone Elkeles

Expected Publication: October 1, 2013
Young Adult -- Contemporary

Another year, another move—with a Dad in the military, starting a new school in the middle of the year doesn’t faze Derek. But moving with his new step-mother to live with the father and sister he hasn’t seen in seven years?  Awkward.  Even worse—his new step-aunt, Ashtyn, is seventeen, hot—and the kicker for the high school’s football team.  A football prodigy, Derek has stayed as far as possible from the field since his mom’s death—and not even an infuriatingly sexy housemate who talks stats and dreams of a Division I scholarship can change his mind.  
But when Ashtyn’s quarterback boyfriend backs out of their road trip to a prestigious summer football camp run by top recruiters, Derek and his car become Ashtyn’s only route to making her dreams of playing college ball come true.  Four nights.  Multiple state lines.  Football.  Secrets.  Sex.  This is one road trip neither of them will forget.

  1. I'm kind of curious about Wild Cards, too. I've only read one Elkeles book (Perfect Chemistry) and I did like it, but I wasn't in love. So I haven't read anything else.

    1. I really liked Perfect Chemistry and its sequel, Rules of Attraction. I haven't finished the trilogy yet, but this blurb intrigued me. Thanks for commenting!
