New Noodler Books Hitting The Shelves!

February is the month for romance, so it's only fitting we have some Noodler releases.

Out February 1st is Merrillee Whren's Four Little Blessings and my own book, Primal Instincts. But that's not all! On February 5th, Colleen Gleason's book, The Bleeding Dusk: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles, will be in stores!
Four Little Blessings by Merrillee Whren

The four little noisemakers who'd moved next door to Wade Dalton came with a bonus: their beautiful aunt. Raising the children herself due to some tough circumstances, Cassie Rankin impressed Wade with her selflessness and her beauty. But she was also at least a dozen years his junior--she was too young for him, wasn't she? Besides, Wade came with a secret that would only make life harder for Cassie and the children he'd come to adore, which meant keeping his distance. Something those four little blessings weren't about to let him do!

Primal Instincts by Jill Monroe

4.5 stars/Top Pick from Romantic Times!
"Sizzling-hot sex, compelling characters, humor and a dual plot make Primal Instincts (4.5), by Jill Monroe, a book you can't put down.

Who are they to argue with biology?

Subject A, photojournalist Ian Cole, is sent to ghostwrite a book on sex in various cultures. Instead of finding a white-haired professor, he is greeted by Subject B, anthropologist Ava Simms, wearing only a teeny loincloth and body paint….


Sexual energy between subjects increases exponentially. Note the male's quickened breathing and barely restrained urge to do lusty and inappropriate things.

The female, in turn, decides to demonstrate her extensive knowledge of seduction, play and ritual…claiming it's "research." The results? Neither Subject A nor B want the study to end….

The Bleeding Dusk: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles by Colleen Gleason

4.5 stars/Top Pick from Romantic Times!
"The sophistication and intelligence of [Gleason's] story-telling is evident on each page of the Gardella Vampire Chronicles."-- Romantic Times

The undead of Rome are racing to unravel an ancient mystery – and only one woman can stop them...

As Rome prepares for its Carnivale, the new leader of the city's vampire hunters – Lady Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy – must prove herself as never before. For, to gain access to the secrets of a legendary alchemist, Rome's vampires have allied themselves with creatures as evil and bloodthirsty as they are.

Reluctantly, Victoria must turn to the enigmatic Sebastian Vioget for help, just as Maximilian Pesaro arrives to assist his fellow slayers – no matter what the sacrifice. Desire puts her at the mercy of Sebastian, while loyalty binds her to Max, but can she trust either man? Especially when a seductive vampire begins luring her into the shadows...

Tell us what you plan to read this weekend!

Good morning, Noodlers!

I'll be busy reading the Stephanie Bond editing downloads (they look great so far!) and my copy of Our Tempestuous Day came yesterday, so I'll read it as well. And I'm craving more L. King, so I'll break out my worn copy of Beekeeper's Apprentice.

Your books all look fantastic! And I'll be enjoying Jill's soon (thank you!!!).

May I say, I'm so impressed, and a tad intimidated, by how effectively each of these blurbs describe the story and conveying the tone. At Nationals, my cp and I snatched up all the beautiful cover flats to study how back copy and tag lines were used.

I downloaded a couple of Stephanie's articles too.

I need to start reading more of these Noodler books. I can't keep up, but I'm going to try. I'm going to try to read more in 2008!

I have read some of the Stephanie Bond editing pieces before, but I need to go back and read them again. I have to agree with you, Gillian on the blurbs! Now I have to run out to Tammy's Book Basket tomorrow and snatch these puppies up. I have the new Karen Hawkins and the new Nicola Jordan on my bedside table for the weekend.

Jill, I saw your book in my local Publix supermarket earlier this week. They must have just stocked it because not all the copies faced front, as if they just pulled a stack out the box and stuck it up there. Don't worry. I fixed them.

Congrats to all the Noodlers with Feb releases.

Gillian - thanks for the comments on the blurbs, although I must give the credit to my editor. I never see the blurbs until they send me the book.

Thanks for taking care of me, Patricia!
