Blood & Flowers


Three years ago, Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe. This motley band of mortals and fey, puppeteers and actors, becomes the loving family Persia never had, and soon Persia not only discovers a passion for theater but also falls in love with Nicholas, one of the other Outlaws. Life could not be more perfect.

Until an enemy with a grudge makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee the mortal world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows—with bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is not quite the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for. And they must decide what’s more important: protecting their right to perform or protecting themselves.

From critically acclaimed author Penny Blubaugh comes this mesmerizing tale of family, faeries, and finding a place to call home.
Betrayal (Haunting Emma)
(MARCH 1ST 2011)
Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive-one a snarky teen boy, the other a British scholar-Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good.

As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
 (I adored the first book in this series. I can't wait to read the sequel. You can read my review of Deception (Haunting Emma Book 1) here.

Eternal: More Love Stories with Bite

I love short story anthologies so I can't wait to read Eternal: Love Stories with a Bite. If you love vampire stories and haven't read The Eternal Kiss: 13 Tales of Blood & Desire, that one was fantastic! So far, I've pretty much torn through every YA paranormal romance anthology, and that one is my favorite.

White Cat (Curse Workers)Red Glove (Curse Workers, Book 2)

Ever have books mysteriously show up at your doorstep? These two showed up out of the blue this week and I was wondering if anyone has ever read them? I saw some mixed reviews on goodreads so I'm a little leery!
