Special to this week's Free Fridays: Smallville Season 11 #1 on NOOK Comics! The first issue of the celebrated series about Clark Kent and his superhero alter ego, Superman, is free today for NOOK users, featuring our beautiful graphic display with zoom view.
Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Marina recommends:
From its opening scene with breakneck action and raw sensuality, to its tender ending, Fated (Book One in the Dark Protectors series) had me from the get-go.
Talen Kayrs is a vampire sent to protect Cara Paulsen and her four-year-old daughter, Janie from a band of monsters known as the Kurjans. It turns out these Kurjans are mortal enemies of Talen’s ancient vampire tribe. However, uber-hot Talen is no ordinary vampire. He can go out in the sun, has eyes that glow a luminescent gold, only drinks blood during sex or a fight, and craves one woman: his predestined soul mate (which makes Fated the perfect title).
The Kurjans want Janie for her psychic abilities, and Cara for her power to block emotion, so when Cara learns she is Talen’s potential mate, the stakes skyrocket. Will the Kurjans want her more if she marries Talen? Will consummating their union protect Cara as much as Talen promises?
I marveled at how expertly Rebecca Zanetti fills every page with conflict and how masterfully she weaves sexual tension into each exchange between Cara and Talen. Being a mother, I naturally scrutinized the heroine’s relationship with her daughter, but I found it believable and heart-warming. All in all, Fated is ideal to curl up with on a rainy day—just be sure to buckle your seat belt for one hell of a roller coaster ride!
