Wishlist Wednesday

 

Created by Pen to Paper
Each week we will share a book that has been recently added to our wishlist or has been on it for ages. A book I can't wait to add to my shelf. 
I've been working on my ebook wishlist. I have so many potential amazing books that I want to read. 

I'm kind of in love with the cover for this one it's dark and I like it. The synopsis sounds equally amazing. 

Hooked 
by Emily Mcintire
Add to (Goodreads) Shelf 

He wants revenge, but he wants her more.


Once Upon A Time, there was a little boy.

His belly full of laughter, his life full of joy.

Until one day, something changed; stripped his innocence away.

The hole inside making space for the devil to come and play.

His dreams gone forever, he grew up way too fast.

An endless night of crocodiles, and watches made of glass.

He grew into a villain, the taste of vengeance on his tongue.

Craving to make his enemies pay for the misdeeds they had done.

Instead he found a darling girl, and refused to let her go.

For what better way to make the man pay, than to steal his little shadow.


*Hooked is a full-length, complete standalone and the first in The Never After Series: A collection of fractured fairy tales where the villains get the happy ever after. This is a DARK Contemporary romance (not fantasy) featuring mature themes and content that may not be suitable for all audiences. Reader discretion is advised.*

Lurking in the shadows, another evil threatens Sariyah and her friends, making her quest even more complicated.


With her life suddenly in more danger than ever, can she escape from the darkness which is set to follow her?


One thing is for certain, her life is going to change forever.

ALL MY CHRISTMASES
BY AJ ALEXANDER
I don’t do Christmas. I’d even go as far as to say I hate it.

But when my baby sister asks me to walk her down the aisle on Christmas Eve, I can’t say no. So, instead of soaking up the sun on a remote island, I’m freezing my ass off, surrounded by mountains of snow.

What I didn’t expect was for my baby sister's best friend to turn into a curvy snow bunny. She’s too young, too innocent, and too good for the likes of me.

But no matter how hard I try, Noelle Eden has thawed my ice cold heart.

I didn’t come here looking for love, but I plan to ensure that the rest of my Christmases from now until forever are with her.

SLEIGH BELL BABY
BY DEE ELLIS
Bristol Ambrose bounced into town with a broken heart and a baby—just in time for a blue Christmas. Looking for a do-over on life, she thinks maybe this cute little town can be a fresh start for her—not as if she can go anywhere else with a snowstorm coming.

Burke Ives comes from a huge family with big hearts, big lives, and big bank accounts. City life and starting a family were never for him—that's why he stays on the fringe in the wilderness of Driftwood, Georgia. Until he spots a beautiful woman with an adorable baby—and knows they both need him.

Bristol makes the quite beast inside yearn to bed her, wed her, and breed her until the end of time.

For Christmas he knows just what to give her—his last name and another baby in her belly.

A MOUNTAINTOP CHRISTMAS
BY KHLOE SUMMERS
What will this reclusive mountain man do when a curvy postal worker threatens his solitude?

Sven

I've been alone on this Alaskan mountaintop so long that people refer to me as the Yeti,
And I have no regrets.

I need to let her know how I feel –she is a treasure.

My treasure.

MERRY LITTLE WEDDING
BY TARIN LEX

My bestie is ‘falling in love’ after date number two…
That means it’s bullsh!t, right?
That’s what I think until I meet the man of my dreams—
With said bestie in tow—
At my fake bachelorette party.
We’re just here for an innocent, fun time.
Okay, and the free drinks don’t hurt…
When the nightclub’s hot owner (aka “man of my dreams”) discovers our ruse, I fully expect him to kick us out.
Or at least make us pay for our drinks.
Instead he invites me to a real wedding.
And the one after that—I just know—is going to be ours.

When December gets cold—crank up the romance!
Aurora & Boone aren’t looking for “love or whatever.”
It finds them. ;)
But you can eighty-six the mistletoe, babe…
Cuz these two are headed straight for bed. <3
Kisses, Tarin

AUDIO RELEASE BLITZ - Some Call it Fate by Sarah Peis




Title: Some Call It Fate
Series: Sweet Dreams #3
Author: Sarah Peis
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Narrator: Avery Caris
Audio Release Date: December 10, 2021

BLURB
She doesn't believe in love, he thinks they're meant to be.

My whole life I dreamed about meeting my knight in shining armor, but it turned out he was just a loser covered in tinsel. After I picked up the pieces and put myself back together, I swore to never let anyone else break my heart again.

Call me a cynic, but after the mess I made of my life I didn’t think a happily-ever-after was what fate had in store for me.

At least that’s what I thought before I met Oliver, who thinks we're meant to be together and is determined to prove it to me, no matter the cost.

But Oliver has secrets of his own. And they are catching up to him. Now I just have to figure out if he is worth risking my heart again.

Note from the author: In order not to get kicked out of the good (okay goodish.... fine, sometimes good) girls club, I’d like to point out that this is a steamy romcom and my characters use bad language (sometimes) and like to get it on. There’s no cheating and all my books have a HEA.

PRE-ORDER BLITZ - Malicious Compliance by E.M. Lindsey




Title: Malicious Compliance
Series: Loose Lips Sink Ships Duet #1
Author: E.M. Lindsey
Genre: MM Romance
Release Date: November 14, 2022

BLURB
My life is good. I work from home, I answer to no one, and I pay my rent on time. In short, things are peaceful and solitary—exactly the way I like them. Yes, my apartment might be a dump with paper-thin walls and plumbing issues, but it’s mine all the same.

And then he moves in.

I didn’t ask for this new neighbor with all his furniture rearranging and obnoxious cello playing at all hours of the night. Who cares that he’s ridiculously hot and always has a smile on? That doesn’t mean he should get away with disturbing my peace.

All I want is for him to move out, but my landlord—who also happens to be my obnoxious older brother—tells me I have to play nice.

I suppose I can try. After all, there’s nothing wrong with a little malicious compliance.


Malicious Compliance is the first in a romantic MM duet featuring enemy neighbors to lovers, high heat, low angst, a stray cat who refuses to leave, a series of bad dates, and the steamiest of happily ever afters.
