Stacking the Shelves (Sept. 30, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews has a meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. Visit her site to check out the linky and see what everyone gets. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow.
I only bought one book this week but that didn't stop nine others from following me home and being added to my stack.
I bought Warrior by Zoe Archer for my Kindle after seeing it on someone else's Stacking the Shelves post. Here is the description that sucked me in:
The vicious attack Capt. Gabriel Huntley witnesses in a dark alley sparks a chain of events that will take him to the ends of the Earth and beyond - where what is real and what is imagined become terribly confused. And frankly, Huntley couldn't be more pleased. Intrigue, danger, and a beautiful woman in distress - just what he needs. Raised thousands of miles from England, Thalia Burgess is no typical Victorian lady. A good thing, because a proper lady would have no hope of recovering the priceless magical artifact Thalia is after. Huntley's assistance might come in handy, though she has to keep him in the dark. But this distractingly handsome soldier isn't easy to deceive...
My Amazon Vine newsletter came and I chose these three books for review:
I Do Solemnly Swear by D. M. Annechino sounded like an interesting thriller about the first woman president who has to deal with a recalcitrant Congress, rising international tension, and the possibility that her predecessor did not die of natural causes. Look for this book on October 16.

Dangerous Affairs by Diana Miller is a romantic suspense title that will be released on Oct. 30. I was drawn to this one because of the Minnesota setting. 

Dead Spots by Melissa F. Olson will also be released on Oct. 30 and is an urban fantasy. Here is the description:
Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

But one night Scarlett’s late arrival to a grisly murder scene reveals her agenda and ends with LAPD’s Jesse Cruz tracking her down to strike a deal: he’ll keep quiet about the undead underworld if she helps solve the case. Their pact doesn’t sit well with Dash, the city’s chief bloodsucker, who fears his whole vampire empire is at stake. And when clues start to point to Scarlett, it’ll take more than her unique powers to catch the real killer and clear her name.
I also took advantage of some free books for my Kindle. Here is what I picked for my "someday" file:
Too Darn Hot by Pamela Burford
Donovan's Angel by Peggy Web
Honor Bound by Brenda Novak
Heiress Without a Cause by Sara Ramsey
Wild for You by Sophia Knightly
Married by Mistake by Abby Gaines
