Win It Wednesday: Enclave by Ann Aguirre

Win It Wednesday: Enclave by Ann Aguirre Win It Wednesday is back, because who doesn’t love awesome books for free? You might remember me gushing over Ann Aguirre’s Vanguard not too long ago. It was a companion novel to her post-apocalyptic young adult Razorland trilogy. While my Vanguard review focused on the relationship that made the book sing (and the best first kiss scene I’ve read in some time), I discovered many of you...

Win It Wednesday: Thunder Road by Sierra Dean

Win It Wednesday: Thunder Road by Sierra Dean Sierra Dean has a knack for snappy, sexy urban fantasy. Y’all know this is exactly in my wheelhouse (and not just because of Borrowed Souls—we could talk about oodles of sexy urban fantasy like the Fever series and the Broken Destiny books). My point is, when I tell you that you need to have Sierra Dean books on your shelves, I mean it. While we loved her Secret McQueen books, we know you want the...

Exclusive Excerpt from Hunted by Elisabeth Naughton
