NANCY GIDEON CONTINUES HER COMPELLING, SENSUAL NEW SERIES
WITH A SEDUCTIVE TALE OF FORBIDDEN ALLEGIANCE AND
Susanna Duchamps came to New Orleans to
settle a debt and to temporarily escape the controlled
constraints of her life among the Chosen. What she finds is
an opportunity to make miraculous strides with her research
into Shifter genetics . . . and an unexpected, but never
forgotten, man from her complicated past.
Shifter club owner Jacques LaRoche is
fiercely protective of his freedom. Stripped of his memories
of a former life, he longs for the mate he lost . . . until
the enticingly familiar presence of a mysterious stranger
from the north ignites a primal, nearly uncontrollable need
to release the untamed beast inside him.
Susanna dares not tell Jacques
it was she who sacrificed his past and her future years ago,
to protect him and the secret she carried. But her arrival
in New Orleans comes with consequences. When a bloody
confrontation erupts between their enemy clans, will she
betray her lover once again—or throw her own life on the
line so they can finish what they started?

The Hunger Games. I just can't get past the pervasive violence and cruelty. It didn't make up for excellent writing.
(Kathleen Conner 10:33am May 30, 2012)
I have been waiting for this book forever can't to
get my hands on it
(Tasha Serrano 10:41am May 30, 2012)
J.D. Robb and Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series have me hooked from page 1.
Lovely Bones bored the tears out of me. The Twilight series was a snore and I finally DNF the last one. I read all of the Harry Potter books, but felt they could have been edited to about 400 pages each when they started getting ridiculously long. I know some fans loved every blessed word, but not me.
I have Shades of Grey, but I'm not actually looking forward to reading it, same with Dragon Tattoo. I'm sure I'll read them both...some day.
(Anne Muller 11:26am May 30, 2012)
Harry Potter a disappointment Hunger Games also Great giveaway
(Lynne Hankins 11:35am May 30, 2012)
Hmm... good question. I would have to go with Immortals After Dark. I read the first book and I couldn't figure out what everyone was going nuts about. Although the author going on tour with the cover model and having the cover painted on the side of their tour bus was pretty cool.
(Kristin Bingham 12:15pm May 30, 2012)
Interesting topic. I generally allow myself 100 pages in before putting the book in the DNF pile. The teaser you provided for Seeker of Shadows hooked me quickly...and makes me want to know what is going on and why she turned him in...
Thanks for offering the book as a prize!
(Jan Terry 12:26pm May 30, 2012)
added to my must read list
(Debbi Shaw 12:51pm May 30, 2012)
This sounds like a really interesting book and I look forward to reading it. I hope you have a great day.
(Chelsea Knestrick 1:43pm May 30, 2012)
I love books that keep my attention... they keep up with a nice flow, where I want to see what happens next and also makes me feel something... I have had my hands on a few books that had me questioning why I picked them up... I just could not get into them... and I have some that I keep looking at in my TBR pile and turning away from... just can not get myself to pick them up... just something keeps me away from them...
(Colleen Conklin 4:54pm May 30, 2012)
Your book caught my attention!! I can't wait to read it. As for other books that "always please", I have to say Nora Roberts.
(Robin McKay 5:20pm May 30, 2012)
I adore Chick Lit - each and every one of them. I've never read a "Stinker."
Unfortunately, that doesn't always carry over to some of those novels on the Best
Seller lists by authors who are always there. Rather than ditz an author at this
site as I think that would be rude, suffice to say I think many of you will know
who I'm talking about.
(Connie Fischer 5:22pm May 30, 2012)
I usually will know after reading 60 pages if it's going to be a DNF book. I've had only a few that were very boring, first books by new authors (wondering how they found publishers). I love books that keep my attention so greatly, that, I hate to put them down to take a break. I can't even remember the names of these books that I'd gotten from the library. If an author has written really good books, I don't forget the titles. The books that have kept me riveted to every word are "Violets of March" and "The Bungalow" both by Sarah Jio. She has a writing gift, and I can't wait to read her new book coming out in Sept., "Blackberry Winter". I have many fav authors and I am always on the prowl for new ones to discover. I am going to have to look for your books, as I'm intrigued now. Enjoyed the excerpt for your new book, and it sounds good. I enjoyed all the information you had to share...thanks!
(Linda Luinstra 5:26pm May 30, 2012)
I think I found my newest series to devour. : )
(Leanne Jacobson 6:04pm May 30, 2012)
Hannibal Rising was horrible. I didn't like the ending at all. But everyone else loved it.
(Stacie Deramo 6:18pm May 30, 2012)
I recently got "Bear Meets Girl" and could not even finish it! I was so sad as the sample I read was awesome but I am guessing that was the best part of the book. Anyway...I flipped thru it and read the sex scenes which were OK but even they didn't entice me to finish it.
(Angie Lilly 6:48pm May 30, 2012)
I remember the bookmobile :)
(Jill Hunter 7:21pm May 30, 2012)
this sounds so good i cant wait to read.thanks jen
(Jennifer Beck 7:54pm May 30, 2012)
I think a good read is anything that makes you FEEL something... even if it's frustration! But if it makes you laugh and cry and back to laughing again, that's my favorite!
I love a book that makes me close it with a smile on my face.
(Sonja Warmath 8:07pm May 30, 2012)
I know what you mean about hoping the story will get better. Adam is the last book I put down because it did not hold my interest. You did tease me with the excerpt. Can't wait to read it. Thanks
(Pat Freely 8:24pm May 30, 2012)
There is exactly one book in all of time that I absolutely DID NOT FINISH. I hate to say it but Surrender The Dark by L.A. Banks just didn't work for me. Boy did I try but yuck. As far as books I loved, they are plentiful but the one I suggest to everyone is Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey. I had to hold on through the first 70 pages because I couldn't stand what was happening to Phedre. I am SO GLAD I stuck with it. The book is amazing and I ended up reading through the whole series almost without break because I had to know. I HAD TO!
(Jennifer Beyer 8:37pm May 30, 2012)
Sounds interesting. I tend to like historicals mixed with mystery.
(Molly Wilsbacher 8:55pm May 30, 2012)
I'm teased & intrigued!
(Diane Sallans 9:06pm May 30, 2012)
Well, I've been disappointed by quite a few books and the thing they all had in common was they went way out there and some of the events were just too far gone.
The things that make me love a book are the play on emotions and interesting characters.
(Leni Kaye 9:33pm May 30, 2012)
I would love to read (win) this book.
I really like stories with lots of adventure and action.
I dislike stories that have unbelievable situations that are
pretending to be real.
(Mary Hay 9:47pm May 30, 2012)
there have been some books that were well hyped that didn't do it for me, but I sometimes think the hype gets the expectations so high that it's hard for them to be met. and sometimes what works for me doesn't match with what works for someone else -- just different tastes. congrats on your release :)
(d Kenney 10:22pm May 30, 2012)
As a rule, I'm the sort of reader that beats to a different drum. I'll read different books depending on my mood on a given day. It might be a romance one day, then I'll switch to something more of a paranormal type of book the next, then go on to something more humerous the next, if I'm in the need of something more uplifting. Very seldom will I ask for someone's opinion. One woman I know mentioned that I would enjoy reading books by Lisa See, since she knew that I was a big Amy Tan fan, and she was right. Another woman got me started reading Janet Evanovich, and I turned out being a big fan of her books. There have never been any that have been suggested to me that were absolute duds. I can find those on my own, but I will read those through to the end. I have to find out how the story ends for my own sanity. Your excerpt left me on the edge of my seat, and has me totally captivated!! I have to find out how the story ends!! This is one book that I will need to find out the story, from start to finish!! Thank you for a great blog today!! You've added another fan!!
(Peggy Roberson 10:31pm May 30, 2012)
I just finished reading a book that had me hating to take a break from reading it and at the same time hating to have the book end. It had humor, a wonderful hero, lots of action and didn't have me feeling that the book was written just to include sex scenes. The book was When Two Hearts Meet by Janelle Mowery. I throughly enjoyed reading this book. I hope to find more such books.
(Gladys Paradowski 1:42am May 31, 2012)
You have managed to intrigue me. It takes a good story, suspense friendship and love at least to make a good story, not just meet and...
(Diane Sadler 6:55am May 31, 2012)
Very interesting blog piece. Now, I'm sure this will bring on hisses and boos, but I never finished Anne of Green Gables. My class 'had' to read it in class when I started secondary school. I was eleven, the youngest girl. Every one of us girls was reading Agatha Christie, Georgette Heyer, Neville Shute and boarding school stories such as the Chalet School and the Abbey Girls. These were the books our parents had at home. I was also reading science fiction and anything with horses in it. Anne by comparison was childish and boring. We were familiar with the concept of poisoning someone's whiskey or insulin, and foreign travel on the Orient Express, so Anne getting tipsy on a cordial really didn't do it for us. If I had read the book at an earlier age - say seven - I might have liked it. But at seven I was reading Narnia, and anything with horses and dogs, and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, so probably Anne would always have bored me rigid.
Another particularly bad school choice, in my opinion, was Men Withering by Francis McManus. (I live in Ireland.) This is perhaps the only other book I never finished. I was maybe fourteen. This book was the third in a trilogy and we had no idea what came before it. By this time the narrator is an old man who is blind, deaf and who babbled. Travel is by foot or by cart and the man is going somewhere and getting pushed around and hearing steps on stones. That's about it. At home I was rereading The Lord of The Rings and The Silmarillion, also Dune, Anne McCaffrey - what a contrast.
For anyone who likes a botanical mystery I can recommend The Shy Tulip Murders by Rebecca Rothenberg. I started reading this at my usual breakneck speed and halfway through I slowed down, I was enjoying it so much.
(Clare O'Beara 6:59am May 31, 2012)
I read a much hyped book a while ago. It had won awards & had rave reviews. I will NOT name it. I found it so disjointed. I wondered if any of these people had actually read it.
(Mary Preston 8:18am May 31, 2012)
If a book does not hook me from the start I do not usually finish it or I skim through it. I hate ones that are so heard to get into - like wading through treacle.
(Barbara Hanson 8:24am May 31, 2012)
Peggy, I hear you. I read EVERYTHING, too. From men's thrillers to cozy mysteries to Chick Lit and books for my Grandson. I go through phases in different genres. Keeps life intersting and keeps my creativity from going stale.
Clare, I agree about some of those school must read classics. Just ewww!
(Nancy Gideon 9:23am May 31, 2012)
I picked up Girl with the Dragon Tattoo while waiting for an oil change once, and I"m so glad I did! Normally I wouldn't have read it, because I'm a wuss and don't like thrillers, but it was excellent.
(Rebecca Whitehead-Schwarz 11:03am May 31, 2012)
I consider myself a voracious reader. A good read to me is one that holds my
attention from the first and when I finish it I feel that I am returning from
another world or a deep sleep. I begin to notice thing going on around me
(Sandra Spilecki 11:21am May 31, 2012)
this book sounds great ! I am an avid reader to me a good read is when I get immersed it in from the begging and I cant put it down until I get to the end of the story
(Danielle McDonald 11:26am May 31, 2012)
Sounds like a great read, I hope I win but if I don't I will just have to go out and buy a copy!
(Ann Thaxton 10:45am June 2, 2012)
I remember the bookmobile coming every summer to a nearby school and the books beakoning to be read. Only when mslead by the cover or the blurb, so I get upset and choose to skim the book rather than read for pleasure.
