Here's my candidate for the week:

Labyrinth of Stars by Marjorie M. Liu
Publisher: Ace (February 25, 2014)
Series: Hunter Kiss, 5
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Tattoos with hearts, minds, and dreams. Created to be the armor that protects my body, these obsidian shadows come alive at night—demons made flesh.

After the Aetar nearly kill Maxine’s unborn child, and a betrayal within her own ranks leaves Maxine’s husband, Grant, poisoned and dying, Maxine is forced to attack a race of beings that possesses almost unlimited power. Doing so will require she make a deal with the devil—the devil that lives inside her—risking both her sanity and her soul as she slowly transforms into something more than human.

But even that might not be enough to save Grant, because the very thing that Maxine is becoming is destined to destroy the world.

Isn't that cover gorgeous? Her strong pose, the beautiful symbols and the colors . . . Ah, I love it! 

I have not read this series, but I've had the books on my list for a while; maybe it's time to pick one up.

And, hey, there are tatts, but it's not on the guy this time! :)

Kame's Pick

Strike by Holly S. Roberts
Publisher: H. S. Roberts (January 16, 2014) 
Series: Completion, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Strike is the second book in the Completion Series. There is no connection to Play (book I) except the sports theme. Strike is a standalone HEA novel.

Nineteen-year-old Jaycee Shumway breaks into professional baseball player, Reed Tyler’s home, to steal the second most valuable set of balls he owns. Neither of them expect their striking attraction or battle of wills to lead them to a homerun.

Jaycee has more than herself to worry about. When Reed discovers she has a younger brother and sister, he’s quickly caught up in their world of need and heartbreak.

Baseball season begins and the separation puts Reed and Jaycee’s game on hold. With bases loaded and hearts on the line, will Reed convince Jaycee that she needs him to win or will Jaycee strike out and walk off the field forever?

This New Adult book is intended for mature audiences.
