In My Mailbox 29/1

Welcome to In My Mailbox! Goodness, that feels like a quick week. That's probably down to my croaky throat from last weekend getting worse, making me take a sick day during the week, but all better now :)

I didn't actually get anything new this week, but there are a few ebooks I got over the Christmas period that I didn't talk about last week, so they get their own post now.

First up is 'Hot As Hades' by Alisha Rae. This is a retelling of the Persephone/Hades myth, with a couple of twists and a lot of sexiness. (I can't find a cover image that would show up small, so... no cover.) It's published by Samhain.

Next, I got 'Captives of the Night' by Loretta Chase.
It's a historical romance, mostly set in London.

Then it's 'No Dress Required' by Cari Quinn:
This one was a fun short romance story that starts on New Years Eve, and ends with an HEA. I'm probably not going to review this one, but I would recommend fans of steamy romance check out Cari Quinn - she writes a good story. This one is published by Entangled.

Finally, I got a fun one for review last week:
I've read it, but it doesn't actually come out until April, so I'll be posting my review nearer to the time. It's from Sourcebooks, and is available for review on NetGalley at the moment.

So, what did you get in your mailboxes this week, people? What book were you most excited about? Let me know in the comments :)

Awesome books this week, Alisa! None of them really seem like my type of reads, but I hope you enjoy them. Happy reading! :)

You seem to be preparing for Valentines Day there - plenty of romance! Hope you enjoy them all. :)

Glad you're feeling better! I'm a YA book person, so I don't read the same type of stuff you do, but I hope you enjoy! :)

Lucia - thanks for visiting :)
