Shonah and I are both HUGE fans of BookCase Club. I absolutely love the idea of receiving a new book (or two) in the mail every month. BookCase club sets themselves apart from other book subscription boxes by offering 8 different book categories to choose from and by charging such a reasonable monthly fee…..two new books every month for only $9.99!
Here’s a look at the books I received this month…..Shonah will be posting her review shortly so stay tuned for that…..
Beauty’s Kingdom by Anne Rice
Mega-bestselling author Anne Rice, writing as A. N. Roquelaure, returns to the mysterious kingdom of Queen Eleanor in this new chapter of her Sleeping Beauty series. When the great queen is reported dead, Beauty and Laurent return to the kingdom they left twenty years before. Beauty agrees to take the throne, but she insists that all erotic servitude be voluntary. Countless eager princes, princesses, lords, ladies, and commoners journey to Beauty’s realm, where she and her husband usher in a new era of desire, longing, and ecstasy. Provocative and stirring, Rice’s imaginative retelling of the Sleeping Beauty myth will be adored by her longtime fans and new readers of erotica just discovering the novels.
Note: Book #4 in the Series
Crave the Night by Lara Adrian
Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order—an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires—Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan’s hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire—a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan’s elusive quarry.
Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing—until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.
Note: Book #12 in the Series (can be read as a standalone)
BookCase Club Review July 2017 – Final Thoughts
Both of my book selections this month fall under the romance category, but they also have a bit of a fantasy/fiction vibe going on, which I love. I really like the sound of Beauty’s Kingdom. It’s like a grown-up version of Sleeping Beauty, but sadly it is the fourth book in the series and I haven’t received/read the first three. The second book, Crave the Night, definitely appeals to me because I’m a sucker for vampire novels…..thanks to Twilight…..but it is also part of a series. Luckily with this one you aren’t require to read all the other books in the series as they can all be read as a standalone. I love both book selections this month, I just wish I would have received the first book in both series rather than the last.
