Wishlist Monday {3}

Hello friends, let's go for another series of "books I want to buy"?

The Shadow Keepers Series - J. K. Beck

Aparently a trilogy - couldn't find any information to having more there - but really, can we get enough of paranormal creatures? I can't. Vampires, hot, steamy and, geez, THAT cover *drools*... Where was I again? Oh yeah. I want them. All of them. 
**EDIT: According to the cool author who took time to visit this humble blog, there are 3 books as of now (sept/oct/nov launches), with another 3 scheduled. Now come to momma little bokies!**

Summary for When Blood Calls, by Goodreads:

Sara Constantine is one of the country’s most tenacious prosecuting attorneys—and she’s just secured a well-earned promotion. At first she’s thrilled. Then she finds out her new job involves prosecuting vampires and werewolves. And nothing prepares Sara for the shock she receives when she meets the first defendant she’ll be trying to put away: Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy. 

When Lucius Dragos kisses the beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he’s only hoping to blend into the crowd and avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he’s following…and planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss to secure his cover ignites into a fierce hunger that leads to an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows Sara will do whatever it takes to see him locked away—unless he can convince her that he’s not the monster she thinks he is. And that might mean making the greatest sacrifice a vampire can make.

Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa M. Klein

After reading Receive me Falling, this period and this story sort of filled an empty spot to me, in hopes this book ends differently and not as sad as Receive me Falling.

Summary from GoodReads:
The greatest unsolved mystery of American history--what happened to all the colonists who landed on Roanoke Island in 1587? This novel traces the fortunes and misfortunes of one Cate Archer, banished to Virginia by a jealous Queen Elizabeth because of her dalliance with Sir Walter Ralegh. What will be her fate in this dangerous New World?

Wicked Lovely Series by Melissa Marr

First time I read about Wicked Lovely Series, I just fell in love with it. It was a lovely Paranormal Romance, but with faeries. And evil ones! And I had just dreamt about it, which was kind of weird and definitly a sign ;)

Summary for Wicked Lovely, from Goodreads:

Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries. 

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty-especially if they learn of her Sight-and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens. 

Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries. 

Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer. 

Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention. 

But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King, who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. His is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost-regardless of her plans or desires. 

Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; everything. 

Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first-century faery tale. 

And you, people, any recommendations?
