Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes books bought (my wife would say I buy too many), borrowed (a rare occurrence), and received for review (which I’m trying to reign in).

New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures

Two partial shipments arrived this week, and a replacement for my long-overdue lost shipment is on the way.

Starbreaker is the second Nightchaser novel by Amanda Bouchet, romantic space opera with a kickass female protagonist. A Veil of Spears by Bradley P. Beaulieu is the third book in the Song of Shattered Sands, now available in a mass market paperback edition to make my reread a bit more enjoyable. With Blood Upon the Sand is part of that lost shipment I mentioned, so anxiously awaiting the replacement to fill that gap in the series.

Kock Rider of Khymeera & Sukkubus of Khymeera are part of the Saga of Karli Talbo, an erotic epic fantasy by Joanna Noor that I first sampled through the bundled Khymeera Kollection collection of novellas last year. While they have a definite Gor vibe to them, it is very much gender-swapped and deconstructed, almost tongue-in-cheek in places.

Review Titles

Two digital review titles this week, one a NetGalley request and the other courtesy of the author.

Scandalous Passions by Nicola Davidson [May 11] was a must-request with its wicked lusts Lady Janet Fraser, Scotland’s most notorious sinner; Sir Lachlan Ross, a beast who secretly wishes to submit to her dominance; and Lady Marjorie Hepburn, a convent-raised virgin with a desire to be taught all the sensual secrets of the marriage bed.

Luminosity and Other Interracial Erotic Vignettes by R M Miller follow the theme of black women taking the helm in their intimate relationships with white men in stories that range from softer-hued to harder-edged intrigued me.

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

A few digital discoveries this week…

When Women Were Warriors by Catherine M. Wilson comes from an author happily identified with all the male heroes in fantasy, but who longed for a story with a female protagonist . . . so decided to write it.

Scythian Dawn by P.K. Lentz sounds like an interesting blend of fantasy and science fiction, featuring an Iron Age post-apocalyptic alternate Earth, an alien ship bent on destruction, and the female leader of a war band who will resist them.

I’ll be honest, it was the title and cover that drew me to The Archaeologist’s Mistress by Jamie MacFrey, but I love the idea of a hard-boiled cyberpunk murder mystery with explicit and creative scenes of sex, gunplay, and detective work.

Astoria by Eric Stones joins last week’s pick-up of Vienna, featuring another Voluptuous Vixen who, when she’s not fighting monsters or intruders, is busy playing with herself.
