From the Review Pile #3

, , No Comments
"From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity."
 Usually this is posted on Thursday but I put it up a day early this week, since I have other posts for tomorrow :) Should be back on schedule next week!
  The first book I've been wanting to read is Touched by A.J. Aalto. I received this book from the publisher a couple weeks ago and just haven't had time to get to it! Between working 12-14hrs night-shift a few days a week, and being a mom to 3 young kids and a big kid (Hubby lol), I haven't had much chance to read these.
 Also, it's currently free on Amazon, just double-check the price as I have no idea how long it will be free. It has excellent reviews there too, 5 Stars!
  The media has a nickname for Marnie Baranuik, though she’d rather they didn’t; they call her the Great White Shark, a rare dual-talented forensic psychic. Twice-Touched by the Blue Sense--which gives her the ability to feel the emotions of others, and read impressions left behind on objects--Marnie also has a doctorate in preternatural biology and a working knowledge of the dark arts. She is considered without peer in the psychic community.
  Then her first big FBI case ended with a bullet in one shoulder and a chip on the other, a queasy heart and a serial killer in the wind, leaving her a public flop and a private wreck. When the FBI’s preternatural crimes unit tracks her down at a remote mountain lodge for her insight on a local case, her quiet retirement is promptly besieged by a stab-happy starlet, a rampaging ghoul, and a vampire-hunting jackass in tight Wranglers. Marnie figures the only real mystery is which one will kill her first.
  Too mean to die young, backed up by friends in cold places, and running with a mouth as demure as a cannon’s blast, Marnie Baranuik is about to discover that there’s no such thing as quitting time when you’re Touched.
  The second book is A Killing Touch (Sensory Ops #4) by Nikki Duncan. I've had this ARC for a little while but haven't had the time to read it yet. Don't know if you know this or not, but I'm one of Nikki's NDecent Dames. So I'm shamelessly showcasing her book :) If you're a blogger or passionate reader and would like to join the Dames, I believe she is looking for more, go HERE for more info.
  A Killing Touch doesn't come out until March 5th, 2013 but you can pre-order it on Amazon now. And definitely look for the review in the next week or so!

  Journalist Lana Quinn has a way with hard-hitting news. The story she's uncovered has potential, but she needs the help of her best friend's FBI team. She's been rescued by them, worked with them, and partied with them, but convincing the second in command to believe her theory-that a killer's touch sets off a lethal allergic reaction-is a frustrating challenge.
  Especially since he excites her, body and mind. He's a danger she shouldn't indulge.
  Aidan Burgess is resistant to helping Lana, but not for the reason she thinks. She has a knack for landing herself in trouble, which means she needs protection. Protecting her means staying near her, a journalist, who like all journalists uses whatever-and whomever-it takes to get her story. It's a case he wants to refuse.
  Especially since she lights a fire in his blood. She's a danger he can't afford.
  As Lana follows up on lead after deadly lead, learning to trust and rely on each other becomes their only lifesaving hope. If their pride doesn't become their final pitfall.

Warning: This title contains a grudge-holding hero who gives "kiss my ass" new meaning, a heroine out to prove herself, and a danger that dares them to trust.

 So, what books are you really looking forward to right now?
