Okay so today I wanted to take a moment to give a shout-out to a fellow Paranormal Unbounder, here. I blog with amazing and talented ladies, and I have them all on my to-read list. I started with Anchored because I had a day when I wanted something quick, and I knew A.J. and I shared a love for beta heroes. Beta heroes do it better, people.
I also love the idea of taking something tried and true and making it new again, and I dug this particular twist on angels and vampires. The vampires were evil (I’m willing to let that one slide) and the angels kicked ass. Jason, the hero, had that funny, sexy good guy thing going on, and I totally enjoyed the tension between him and Susannah. I could picture him easily, and could envision being attracted to him if I met him somewhere in real life. Perfect mix of nice guy and bad boy.
This is the kind of book you can pick up when you haven’t got time to get immersed in a full-length novel, and come out at the end feeling satisfied. Oh, and beta heroes rock. 😉
About Anchored (get it at Amazon):
Fierce, powerful and nearly immortal, Susannah March is a guardian, a winged protector charged with keeping Biloxi and its citizens safe. For decades she’s resisted taking a partner, a healer who would complement her weaknesses. Then Jason Delacourt shows up.
Jason is everything Susannah isn’t: young, impulsive, and unconcerned with rules. Susannah expects him to flake out within a week, but when a nest of vampires threatens her control of the city, Jason proves he’s stronger than he seems. As she fights to take back her territory, Susannah can’t deny that the healer has his uses–in more ways than one. What started out as irritation turns to lust, and then to something stronger. Susannah is used to risking her life, but risking her heart may be more than she can bear, even with the fate of her city at stake.
With deadly angels, a charismatic thief, long-buried secrets and Southern charm, Golden Heart ® Finalist A. J. Larrieu has created a world you’ll want to get lost in.
About the Author:
A. J. Larrieu grew up in a small Louisiana town fifty miles west of New Orleans. She spent every summer knee-deep in mud exploring the swamps or nose-deep in a book exploring other worlds, so it’s no surprise she grew up to be a biologist moonlighting as an urban fantasy and paranormal romance novelist. She currently lives in San Francisco with her husband and son. Even though she’s been in the Bay Area for almost a decade, she still misses those pounding Gulf Coast thunderstorms.
A.J. is a member of Romance Writers of America and was an RWA Golden Heart ® finalist for her paranormal romance, TWISTED MIRACLES.
