Next up on my review stack is Stone Cold Seduction by Jess Macallan. I am on the blog tour for this book. Check back tomorrow for my review and a guest post by the author. This is the start of an urban fantasy trilogy.

Here is the description:
When a regular night of Robin Hood-ery results in the manifestation of some, um, unusual paranormal abilities, perfume-maker Elleodora Fredricks realizes the normal world she lives in isn't quite... normal. And neither is she, thanks to her father, king of the shadow elves. Not only is he evil incarnate and the reason Elle moonlights as a burglar someone has to take care of all his victims he s stolen her memories.

And only reading her fate can fix that.

Good thing she s got a trio of hotties willing to help her find said fate, but only if she gives them something in return. Saving her oracle BFF's fiance, falling in love with the gargoyle, and making up for breaking the phoenix s heart ought to be a piece of cake for the princess of the shadow elves.
If only the king didn't want his daughter dead...
The worst day of my life began with a double mocha, extra whipped cream. I burned my tongue, spilled whipped cream on my black top, and then dumped the whole thing when I tripped while walking up the stairs to my second-floor apartment. It got worse.
Friday 56 (estimated on my Kindle):
"It did die out," MacLean replied. "No one has shown any sign of it for about sixty years, that we know of."


  1. Very intriguing!
    Thanks for participating!

  2. I like that it's the start of a trilogy. I hope you like it. I'll check back to see what you thought of it.

  3. Oh no - how can it get worse after that? What a start! I think I'd crawl back into bed after a morning like that!!

  4. what interesting characters! the gargoyle love interest catches my eye.
    here's mine (includes a giveaway)

  5. That's a really bad way to start a day! This sounds like an intriguing read with maybe a little bit of humor.
