On The ROOB Radar: All good things come in threes


All good things come in threes and I've discovered some new series that have at least three releases scheduled in 2011. I know, it's still a long way but before you know it you are shopping for Halloween, Thanksgiving and X-Mas!

I discovered Lisa Renee Jones via facebook and this cover caught my eye but the blurbs *thud* Me.Wants.Now!


Lisa Renee Jones - THE ZODIUS SERIES

THE LEGEND OF MICHAEL: SIN AND SATISFACTION

Sourcebooks Casablanca (May 2011)

The world will never be the same after a top secret government projects creates super soldiers with alien DNA injections and those soldiers divide between good and evil.

The Hero: Michael

He is sin and satisfaction, lust and damnation, a lethal weapon created from the greed of man. A human soldier injected with alien DNA, he is one of many, yet none are like him, a legend within this new race, split between good and evil. Untamable, he has walked on the dark side, returned to the light, but it matters not, for he is feared, misunderstood—lethal in all ways possible. Women desire him, lust for the mysterious warrior, hungry for the raw passion that touches his every breath. Men envy his stature, his power; they lust to control him. But there is no controlling a creature such as he, no taming the primal fires within him. He is the past, he is the future.

He is Michael.


ZODIUS #2: STERLING

Sourcebooks Casablanca (October 2011)

Adam, the leader of the evil Zodius soldiers has developed a street drug from his newborn’s DNA that is so addictive that he could easily created a worldwide dependency on him as the only source, as withdrawal kills the user. This drug will give Adam the power to rule the entire population if his plan for mass distribution is achieved. Sterling, and a brilliant, cancer stricken scientist, must stop Adam before it’s too late. But can Sterling trust this woman when he discovers this drug might be her only way of surviving cancer?. Is he in bed, and in love, with the enemy?

The Hero: Sterling

He was created, molded, formed from life, love, and misery…

Lethally daring. Ruthlessly passionate. He invites death to his door. Welcomes it with each breath he draws, each step he takes. And thus he is danger. A volatile storm that will sweep across the calm realms of humanity and shake it to the depths of its core. And that storm is…Sterling.


ZODIUS #3: DAMION

Sourcebooks Casablanca (Fall 2011)

General Powell from book 1 has returned and he’s developed a way to create and control a new generation of female GTECHs. He plans to use these women to bring both, the Renegades and the Zodius soldiers, back under his command. The world will be his. Now, Damion, a Renegade, who readers met in book two, will be pitted against one of those soldiers, a woman destined to be both his Lifebond and his enemy. Damion will become her only hope of salvation and their trust in each other the only chance they have to save the world from a madman.

Now when I read Delilah Marvelle's MISTRESS OF PLEASURE & LORD OF PLEASURE I had a great time reading them. But, that series didn't get a chance to continue so safe to say I was thrilled when I found the info on Delilah Marvelle's back-to-back releases from Harlequin and when i read the blurbs it promises to be an ab-fab time in historical land again with the SCANDAL series :)
 
 
Delilah Marvelle – the SCANDAL series
website ~ pre-order

LONDON & SOUTH AFRICA - 1829

Having been raised in the jungles of South Africa, assisting her father in the study of mammal copulation, Lady Justine Fedora Palmer sweeps back into London to embark upon her coming out. She quickly discovers animals are far more civilized than the men surrounding her.

When her father's observations are made public, proving buggery is natural to the animal kingdom, all of London is in a huffing outrage, including His Royal Majesty. Her father is imprisoned and slapped with outrageous penalty fees they simply cannot pay.

Lady Justine becomes more than willing to trade her good name and her place in London's gossip hungry society to secure her father's release. There is only one person she knows she can trust: her father's patron, the Duke of Bradford. A dashing libertine, yes, but one she passionately adores for his unwavering kindness, wit, humor, and a willingness to support her father's studies even as everyone else had laughed her father off.

To her astonishment, the Duke of Bradford is not the same man. His newly marred face hides a scandal that is about to test them both..

 
LONDON & VENICE - 1829

Lady Victoria Jane Emerson's girlish notions were left behind when she is deserted by her first love, Lord Remington, without a backward glance. Five years later, she is being forced to choose a husband by her father who is dying from an unspeakable disease that has obliterated the last of his mind. Though Victoria must marry out of duty, she has vowed to marry a man who will never break her heart.

Jonathan Pierce Thatcher, Viscount Remington, has returned home to London from Venice, free of all his family's debts but is unable to forget the incredible Victoria he was forced to abandon as a means of protecting her from a scandal that had destroyed his life.

To his astonishment, Victoria's dying father has chosen Jonathan and 2 others to vie for Victoria's hand.

Before Jonathan can convince Victoria he'd be a worthy husband, he has to convince himself he is no longer the man he left behind in Venice.

Victoria finds herself falling for the only man she will ever love...for a second time. But when she unearths the truth about the life Jonathan has been living in Venice, her heart is about to be tested. Again.

 
LONDON & ST. PETERSBURG - 1829

If there is anything Tristan Adam Hargrove, the fourth Marquis of Moreland has learned to avoid, it most certainly is scandal. The dark and dashing lord is a true gentleman of honor who would never seduce a woman for his own gain

or pleasure. But he plays the role of a gentleman for a reason, and it has nothing to do with respectablity.

When a raven haired beauty appears one night as his new neighbor, he knows better than to succumb to the desire he feels. He knows little about her: only that she is high born, a protege of the Crown, vain, overly forward, and completely unsuitable for the dark, base passions he hides from the world.

If only his bedchamber window wasn't aligned with HER bedchamber window. If only she would cease taunting him by leaving those damn curtains open just for him.

If only it were not already too late to save her and himself from the scandal he is about to unleash in the name of an untamed passion that has kept him from becoming involved with women for years...
So you see...I have two authors and their three books to add to my 2011 wishlist...and this is already starting in the early days of August. I shudder to think what my wishlist of 2011 will look like by the end of 2010...you think a winning lottery ticket will come attached to the wishlist? I certainly hope so!

What already on your 2011 wishlist?
