Vivi Anna’s Veiled Truth came out from Nocturne this week!!
Blurb: Five years ago, virginal Lyra Magice had fled powerful dhampir Theron LeNoir’s advances. But now an ancient text the dhampir possesses holds the key to solving murders that have plagued Necropolis. When another body is found and evidence points to the Mistress of the city, duty dictates that Lyra work with Theron—a man she regards as haughty, arrogant and immoral—to translate the symbols left at the crime scenes. But with their forced alliance comes darkly sensual dreams that leave her feeling wanton and achy….
Unwilling to reveal his dark past, the dhampir soon discovers that Lyra—a witch of great power—is to be the sacrificial virgin in a demonic scheme to open a portal to hell itself. Salvation will come only if Theron can win Lyra’s trust—and her heart.
Vivi Anna’s return to the world she created with Blood Secrets is my favorite so far. Lyra’s character has always held my interest, I’ve wanted to know more and with Veiled Secrets, Anna gives it to us.
I adored the chemistry between Lyra and Theron. Vivi gives such a great tense lead in with her nocturne books and the reader is SO ready for it when it finally happens. Her characters are so three dimensional and complex and the overall story isn’t shorted for the romance and vice versa.
Veiled Truth is a fabulous read and a great way to spend a few hours inside, curled up and enjoying the day.
Coming up next week we’ve also got Anya Bast’s The Chosen Sin!
Blurb: The Chosen are vampires fighting for their very existence. It is Daria Morris’s destiny to become one of them…
Daria is a special forces agent with one obsession: to wreak vengeance on the vampire who nearly destroyed her. But to succeed, she must become something she detests: a vampire. Her fate rests upon Alejandro Martinez, a sexy vampire with whom she once shared an unforgettable night of scorching passion.
Now, while Daria struggles against her newfound bloodlust, the two must slip into the shadows to bring a monster to justice—even as their desire threatens to consume them…
I have been hoping she sold this book for YEARS since I got a peek at the proposal back when it was called The Darkest Kiss. I was like, “You have to sell this so you finish it and I can read it.” Lucky me (and you all too) she did and it’s out October 7 although apparently there have been loads of in store sightings already.
Anya has created a super hot, really fascinating universe with this book and I can’t rec’ it highly enough. Fabulous worldbuilding, one of the hottest heroes I’ve read in a long time, a kick ass heroine that Anya writes so well and whoo, hot guh chemistry.
If you haven’t pre-ordered this one, do it!
