Here's my candidate for the week:

The Wickedest Lord Alive by Christina Brooke
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks (July 1, 2014)
Series: Westruthers, 3
Genre: Historical Romance

Can an Indecent Proposal

Eight years ago, a tall, handsome stranger entered Lady Alexandra’s bedchamber and consummated a marriage of the utmost necessity. The Marquis of Steyne had agreed to wed and bed Lord Brute’s admittedly lovely daughter to pay off his mother’s gambling debts. But once the deed was done, Steyne’s lawfully-wedded wife vanished into the night…

Lead to Everlasting Love?

Years later, Steyne has nearly forgotten about his runaway bride. But when he suddenly finds himself in need of an heir, he has no choice but to track her down. Living happily in a small village under an assumed name, Alexandra is surprised to see her husband—and to feel such a strong attraction to him. But she is downright shocked when he asks her to bear him a son. How can they possibly repeat the heated encounter of their ill-fated wedding night…without falling hopelessly in love?

Kame's Pick:

Wicked Waves by Sharon Kay
Publication Date: January 21st, 2014
Series: Solsti Prophecy, 2
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth. 

Kai's duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it. Females? They're drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.

Though the two of them mix like oil and water, Kai senses that beneath Brooke’s frosty exterior hides a vortex of simmering passion. He’s determined to thaw his ice princess.

Forced to work together in the immortal realm, they track a rogue Lash demon at the helm of a widespread kidnapping operation. All too soon, Kai’s dark past catches up to them. Time runs out as a second enemy, bent on revenge, vows to stop at nothing short of Brooke’s enslavement and Kai’s death. As they and their foes stalk each other in a demonic game of cat-and-mouse, will her evolving skills and their fledgling bond be enough to save them?

I actually haven't heard of this author before. I do love the cover of Brooke's book,,,mmm I want to lick him all over. Definitely adding this one to my list.

The_Book_Queen said...

I read one of her books a few years back, not part of this particular series though. I recall liking it; I think I gave it 4 stars, perhaps it was even 4.5? But yes, he is definitely lickable!

The_Book_Queen said...

Very, very true! :)

Red Iza said...

Love the top cover, I don't want to punish him but I could lick him ! Love the bottom cover also, he looks dangerous and the colors are good :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Lick, punish . . . sometimes it can be the same thing. :)

Wickedly Delicious said...

Both of you are not helping with my TBR list. I love how they both have "Wicked" in the title. Loving both yummy covers. Where the heck do you all find these interesting yummy reads?

Danielle - we both had historical this week as our picks love it. I want to jump on his ready for me laid back way.

Kame - there is something very sexy with a hero sporting just his back. Love that he has scars and holding his sword while in the water.

Sorry all I am late to playing this week.My L4C

Do you know, I only just now noticed that they do indeed both have "wicked" in the titles? LOL. Clearly it's been one of those weeks . . .
You can never be too late! :)
