Stacking the Shelves (#26)

~ Stacking the Shelves is a weekly post hosted by: Tynga from Tynga's Reviews. Stacking the Shelves is where you share your recent book purchases, physical book buys, review books, borrowed books, or any books you have recently acquired. ~

Hello my awesome followers I'm really sorry for the bereft blog and lack of posts these last few months. I've had a few major giant obstacles thrown my way and I needed to make them my #1 priority. In Dec. I briefly mentioned my absence here about why I had to take some time away—my grandmother has been terribly ill. Things seem to be improving which is why I'm finally back in the blogging world - hurray! I've missed you all!!! Now, onto new books, I got an astounding amount from Avon and I'm basically drooling over them as I type. I got SOO many wonderful romance titles along with a few random but really cool reads. Since I don't want to make this too long I just want to say I'm very much looking forward to reading some older titles sent to me. These look fab: Sarah MacLean's Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, Shanna by: Johanna Lindsey, The Duke and I by: Julia Quinn, and Kiss An Angel by: Susan Elizabeth Phillips! The rest I'm just as equally hyped for but those are at the top!

If you're wondering how I got all these goodies it's thanks to the Avon Addicts program which is accepting new applications now for bloggers! I highly HIGHLY recommend applying, it has been one of the best blogging experiences for me yet and the perks are incredible! So apply now!! (you have till the end of April.)

Burn for Me (Cover Reveal)

*I'm incredibly excited to reveal the stunning cover of Burn for Me by author Ilona Andrews! It's the first novel in the writing pair's new Hidden Legacy series!*

Behind the Cover:

It is such a gorgeous, distinctive cover, melding together unique paranormal aspect of the world and the sizzle of the relationship between Mad Rogan and Nevada. It's rare when the cover captures a scene from the book exactly the way the author had imagined it. You learn to resign yourself to it. Covers aren't meant to be a literal representation of the narrative, but BURN FOR ME is.  It actually shows a pivotal scene, especially when combined with the aerial view splashback.  If you read the book, you'll know exactly what I mean. When I got the cover file, I sent it to a friend.  She emailed back in minutes.  The email said, "Who did you sacrifice to Cover Gods to get this?"
—Ilona Andrews on her reaction to the cover for BURN FOR ME

BURN FOR ME is a slight departure from Ilona Andrews’ other bestselling urban fantasy series. There’s still the trademark snappy dialogue/narrative and action-packed scenes, but there’s a stronger romance thread here that we wanted to get across right away with this cover.  Our hero Rogan is not just hot and sexy, but he’s powerful.  Like kill-you-with-a-stare powerful.  And Nevada is just as strong, only she doesn’t realize her full potential yet.  So I wanted to show off our couple, have that intimacy between them and not lose any kickass-ness (I know, not a real word, sorry).  The background with the exploding buildings around them…the idea was Ilona’s and the execution is just exquisite.

BURN FOR ME by Ilona Andrews
On-sale 10/28/2014 | ISBN: 9780062289230

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire…

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career-a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.
Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan-a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.
