In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Each week I will post books (or book-related things) that I've bought, won in contests, or received in the mail.

This week's mailbox has not been so filled, since I have lot of books purchased/received I still need and want to read, but anyway, here they are:

Books, I've won:

Raven's Kiss by Toni LoTempio
I won this ebook from Night Owl's contest and looking forward to reading it!
Summary from Goodreads:

Raven Grace was a college senior with ambitions of a career in law enforcement when she met the demon Aega, whose bite turned her from mortal to Shapeshifter. Now a member of the Recovery Organization, Raven keeps the peace between humans and errant Hellhounds, trolls, wizards and the like while trying to track down Aega and bring him to justice. After a particularly dicey encounter one night with a Hellhound, she goes to the aid of a girl who’s been attacked and near death—and is amazed to find Aega’s bite mark on the girl’s arm. Determined to get to the bottom of this, she revisits the victim’s apartment and there discovers her closet is a portal to a parallel universe, where people she knows lead vastly different lives. She also gets a glimpse of the Recovery Captain there—a six foot, redheaded Scotsman named Finn McPhee, whose sexy accent and even sexier bod sets her senses aflame. Seeking answers, Finn takes Raven to the magickal underworld, where an ancient fae informs them the demon’s quest is rooted in Scottish mythology and magick. As they delve deeper into legend, the truth comes to light—Aega is only a pawn, subservient to another, darker demon…a being who knows the truth about Raven’s heritage, and who orchestrated her return to this parallel universe for the ultimate showdown. Now, Finn and Raven find their passion for one another must take a backseat to Raven’s battle with a dark force who won’t be satisfied until he’s claimed her soul for his very own…

Books, I've purchased:

The Sapphire Talisman by Brenda Pandos
The Sapphire TalismanI finished Brenda's first book (review still "under construction") and can't wait to start her second book in series.
Summary from Goodreads:
With the local vampire coven decimated, Julia and Nicholas try to begin a somewhat normal life together. Bound by secrecy from a shape shifter determined to see Julia’s world-saving prediction come to fruition, Julia isn’t allowed to tell Nicholas the leader survived, ransacking her happiness with guilt. When Alora returns, bent on revenge, the reunion forces Nicholas and Julia to choose what they are willing to live and die for.
And that's it for this week! Besides these 2 books, I have 27 (yes, 27!!!) real books in my boookshelves which I've received during last couple of weeks waiting to be read, so I'd better go back to reading now!
Happy reading, everybody!
