New August 2010 Releases I Can't Wait to Read!

Well, this has been one hot summer, the temperatures have been scorching and the hot new releases just keep coming. In July, I chose six new releases I couldn't wait to read and thankfully most of them were great reads! I did miss highlighting two must reads for me last month, Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley and A Kiss at Midnight by Eloisa James, both historical romances.

In August, there are six new releases I'm looking forward to reading. I've already read and enjoyed one of them, Sureblood by Susan Grant, a sci-fi romance, so that leaves five. Here are the summaries and release dates for all of them:

Sureblood by Susan Grant
Release Date: August 1, 2010

 (Review here)
Five years ago rival space pirate captains Val Blue and Dake Sureblood stole one incredible night together. But their brief, passionate history ended with the assassination of Val's father and the condemnation of Dake's clan. Now Val struggles to prove her mettle—to herself and to the dissenters amid her own people. Every successful raid is a boot heel ground into the burning memory of Dake Sureblood—and their secret son is a constant reminder of their shared past….

Ambushed and captured before he can clear his name, Dake Sureblood returns from a hell like no other to expose the true killer of Val's father. But as the identity of their enemy becomes chillingly clear, the former lovers must put aside their mistrust and join forces to protect their clans and their precious son.

Burning Up Anthology

Bring these four authors together and it's sure to ignite a spark...

Virginia Kantra continues the haunting tales of the Children of the Sea in her story of a wounded soldier rescued by an enigmatic young woman.

Meljean Brook launches a bold new steampunk series about a woman who strikes a provocative-and terrifying-bargain for freedom.

Lord of the White Hell by Ginn Hale
Release Date: August 15, 2010

Kiram Kir-Zaki may be considered a mechanist prodigy among his own people, but when he becomes the first Haldiim ever admitted to the prestigious Sagrada Academy, he is thrown into a world where power, superstition and swordplay outweigh even the most scholarly of achievements.

But when the intimidation from his Cadeleonian classmates turns bloody, Kiram unexpectedly finds himself befriended by Javier Tornesal, the leader of a group of cardsharps, duelists and lotharios who call themselves Hellions.

However Javier is a dangerous friend to have. Wielder of the White Hell and sole heir of a Dukedom, he is surrounded by rumors of forbidden seductions, murder and damnation. His enemies are many and any one of his secrets could not only end his life but Kiram's as well.

Demon from the Dark (Immortals After Dark Series,#8)by Kresley Cole
Release Date: August 24, 2010

Malkom Slaine: tormented by his sordid past and racked by vampiric hungers, he’s pushed to the brink by the green-eyed beauty under his guard.

Carrow Graie: hiding her own sorrows, she lives only for the next party or prank. Until she meets a tortured warrior worth saving.

In order for Malkom and Carrow to survive, he must unleash both the demon and vampire inside him. When Malkom becomes the nightmare his own people feared, will he lose the woman he craves body and soul?

Sin Undone (Demonica Series, #5) by Larissa Ione
Release Date: August 24, 2010

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.

Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.

Burning Up by Susan Andersen
Release Date: August 31, 2010

Though it's been years since the infamous Macy O'James stepped foot in Sugarville, Washington, everyone remembers what she supposedly did. The tiny town is still buzzing about her crime and lack of punishment.

Now back to lend her family a hand, Macy vows to hold her head high—especially at her high school reunion. But forget about the hottest man in Sugarville escorting her. Though she and fire chief Gabriel Donovan generate enough sparks to burn down the town, he's a law-abiding, line-toeing straight arrow. So not her type.

But maybe—just maybe—he can change her mind about that.


  1. I have four books I can't wait to get my hands on:

    Burning Up by Susan Andersen
    Last to Die by Kate Brady
    Shadows of Midnight by Elizabeth Jennings
    Love Me If You Dare by Carly Phillips

    I read the excerpt of Burning Up and it sounds really HOT. ^_^

  2. Tabitha, that's a great list! And there you go, I left one out again! I definitely have Love Me If You Date by Carly Phillips on my list of books too!... I can't believe I left that one out.. :( I'll have to do a solo post for that book. :D And hmm... yeah, Burning Up is gonna be a HOT one!

  3. Our new releases post is going up soon at BT, so you'll see what I'm looking forward to.

    The Ginn Hale, what genre is it? and you are going to get the Kresley Cole? Well in that case, let me know if it's good okay? :P I'm not getting it before reading reviews...

  4. Am so hanging out for both Burning Up (I've been 'suggesting' to Nalini that I so wanted to read Ria's story and so am thrilled it's almost out :) and Lord of the White Hell. I just wish Amazon would hurry up and add the second one to the catalogue so that I can order them both!

  5. The new Ginn Hale book is M/M Fantasy, Nath. She's the autho who wrote Wicked Gentlemen -- I loved that book and I'm looking forward to reading this one. :D I'm definitely getting the KC book, Nath... I'll let you know what I think as soon as I read it. :)

    Orannia, I'm really looking up to that Anthology too. I like all 4 authors, although I'm most excited about the first three listed. Yay on Ria! And yes! I can't wait to read Lord of the White Hell!

  6. I just got a heads up on that anthology on Breezing Through. I love Meljean & Nalini. :D

    I forgot about Larissa Ione's new release, too, but I still have to read ECSTASY UNVEILED!!

  7. Christine, this anthology just looks great, doesn't it? I can't wait to read Meljean's short story -- that new series sounds really interesting. Oh and I'm looking forward to Ione's new one -- Sin's characters really caught my attention in the last book. :)
