San Antonio Living–Book Picks for August
Now, school’s almost here and we all need some good reads to celebrate the close of summer.
I’ve got some great ones here for all of you. We’ve got a bit of fantasy, a bit of a thrill, and a group of super soldiers.
Third generation Marine Dylan McCall has only one goal in mind: revenge. Armed with a new, scientific enhancement, he won’t rest until he destroys Cyrus Matheson’s plans.
Geneticist Teague Hamilton wants nothing more than a healthy baby of her own. Raised in a girls’ home, she knows Cyrus’s genetic engineering technology is her only chance at gaining the family she wants.
Dylan can’t get enough of D.I.R.E.’s confident, sexy-as-hell geneticist, even though his gut tells him she’s hiding something. He won’t rest until he tames her and brings her deception to light.
When Cyrus draws Teague out of D.I.R.E.’s protective custody and takes her to the past, she uncovers lies that prove she’s never controlled her own destiny, while Dylan travels back in time to save her before its too late.
Can Dylan rescue Teague in time, or will he lose the woman he loves forever?
Think that’s cool? Check out Joni’s other books in the series.
Blushing yet or are super heroes not your thing?
No worries, I have an amazing thriller for you by Marjorie Brody called Twisted.
Sarah Hausman must hide a secret–even from herself. If she acknowledges the truth, it will destroy everyone she loves.
Timid fourteen-year-old Sarah wants her controlling mother to stop prying into what happened the night of the freshman dance. Confess to the police? No way. Confide in her mother? Get real. The
woman is too busy, too proud, and too jealous of Sarah to really care if her life disintegrates. Besides, her mother will say Sarah is totally to blame for what the boys did–which Sarah believes is true. So she doubly needs to shield the truth. Not just from Momma. But from everyone. Including herself.
Beautiful, confident, eighteen-year-old Judith Murielle lives the ideal life. She has college plans, respect from family and friends, and a fiancé she adores. But as a mysterious connection pulls her toward Sarah, Judith’s perfect world unravels. Acting as Sarah’s sole confidante, Judith gains the power to expose her secret. Will the truth be worth the sacrifice? Or will Sarah stop at nothing to keep Judith quiet?
Finally, from Sasha Summers, I have a trio of books that take a “What If” approach to some of Greek Mythology’s well known stories.
First up, Apollo: (out August 16th)
Followed by Hades and Persephone:
And finally Medusa, a Love Story:
As always, enjoy the reads and be sure to write a review for those authors who work so hard to get the words to the page.
