Think of it as the Taste...

Excerpt from Karina Cooper’s Wicked Lies (& an Epic Giveaway)

Excerpt from Karina Cooper’s Wicked Lies (& an Epic Giveaway) Karina Cooper’s Dark Mission series is one of my favorites.

What’s harder though is picking the ten heroes from novels published this year to make my annual swoon-worthy list. Last year Eve Silver’s Lokan took top honors and the year before Stacia Kane’s Terrible was causing fevers all over the...
