I have a spotlight for Diana Quincy’s Spy Fall, which looks like a fun read. The heroine jumps out of airplanes. She’s got to be nuts!
When a fiery French parachutist lands on a drunken Lord Cosmo Dunsmore, he surmises she’s an angel sent from above. But is she a spy after something far more sinister than his debauched soul?
A fearless parachutist is out of her depth … Read more
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Maya! Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Maya Banks] Introverted, cave-dweller, book-lover, LOVES-to-dish-romance!, SO grateful to my readers.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your book?
[Maya Banks] Keep Me Safe is a LONG awaited story for me. I’ve wanted to write this story and book 3 for SO long. I’ve had those two stories in my head for YEARS. But a concise peek (and I’m not very concise!) is that Ramie has psychic abilities, unique abilities, that enable her to track kidnapping victims by touching an object belonging to the victim. She makes a connection to them, but the downside is that she experiences every thing the victim does once she makes that connection. Everything. So it’s rather horrifying. She’s an empath who is only able to feel or detect the evil in people. Never the good. So her “gift” is more of a curse since she’s never able to feel the GOOD. Read more

I love zombie books, but I have to admit that boyfriend zombies are my least favorite trope. I just can’t get onboard with undead boyfriends. I mean, let’s think about it for a second. They are essentially decaying corpses with a craving for brains and raw flesh. Your flesh, or the flesh of your friends. It just doesn’t seem worth the risk to date a dead guy who could turn on you at any moment, going from Romeo to Hannibal Lector. Though, since raw meat is his preferred dish, even my humble cooking skills would wow a hungry zombie. Just head up to the local butcher shop, buy a tasty steak, and serve. No fuss, no muss, if you overlook the dripping blood. Read more

I don’t usually read romantic suspense because the heroine is usually put into a dire, life-threatening situation, and sometimes that just stresses me out. I ventured outside of my comfort zone because Irresistible Force features a K-9 dog. I wasn’t sure how big a part the dog would play in the story, but anything with the word “dog” pretty much gets my attention. I’m so glad I picked this up! While there are several uncomfortable scenes for our heroine, Shay, she thinks well under pressure and refuses to allow herself to be a victim. It helped that James, her police officer love interest, is brave, kind, and understanding, and oh, yeah, Bogart the dog puts all of his training to the test to save Shay from danger. Thank goodness!
