Welcome all!  Time once again to gush about the new additions to our bookshelves!  This week I received two books for review.

Midnight on Julia Street
by Ciji Ware

Release Date:  August 1, 2011

SYNOPSIS

Ciji Ware's acclaimed time slip novel weaves together romance and history with the sultry and timeless flavor of two eras of New Orleans. 

TV reporter Corlis McCullough's investigation of a century-old mystery involving spectacular 19th-century buildings under the threat of the wrecker's ball brings her back into the orbit of her old college nemesis King Duvallon. But now they're mature and companionable, and King shows Corlis a fascinating, hidden side of New Orleans society. Then she begins to be pulled back into the past where corruption, violence, and greed mirror the events of the current day.

by C.C. Humphreys

Paperback Release Date:  May 1, 2011

SYNOPSIS

Dracula. A name of horror, depravity and the darkest sensuality. Yet the real Dracula was just as alluring, just as terrifying, his tale not one of a monster but of a man... and a contradiction.

His tale is told by those who knew him best. The only woman he ever loved...and whom he had to sacrifice. His closest comrade...and traitor. And his priest, betraying the secrets of the confessional to reveal the mind of the man history would forever remember as The Impaler. This is the story of the man behind the legend...as it has never been told before.

So that's my mailbox...tell us about yours!!!

  3. I'm really curious about the Vlad novel. He's always been an intriguing person to much and I suspect a lot of that comes from the country's colorful past! I will look forward to this one!

  10. I am very excited to see your review of C.C. Humphrey's book on Vlad. My husband and I have enjoyed his adventure historicals, thanks to learning of him through C.W. Gortner's blog years ago, and look forward to seeing how he handles this historical subject. I am happy to see him getting more attention plus it's nice to see books by male HF writers, a rarity indeed!
