Welcome to my fourth posting of Stacking the Shelves! I'm finding my feet on this and I'm actually remembering books that are on my kindle, waiting for me. So this is helping me curb my bookshopping problems. I already have books that need reading, let's read those! yeah, right. Anyways, let's get this show on the road! Enjoy the peek at my romance books and don't judge me!

When You Dare by Lori Foster
The tougher they are, the harder they fall… 
Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard-and-fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure. 
Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all…

I'm a romance novel addict and I make no apologies for it. 
The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks
It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.
His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he’s built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond… until he receives anonymous information claiming Rachel is alive.
To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise. And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.

I love Maya Banks' KGI series and I have plans to review the entire series, so be on the lookout for those. I bought the first three at a used bookstore maybe a decade ago and I was a goner for some guys named Kelly.

So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop–sided eater for all eternity.
Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either...After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...

Is it bad that I'm just noticing that the title isn't Billionaire with a 'B'? Like I've said time and time again, I am not a fan of vampires and read a select few vampire books. Kerrelyn Sparks is one author whose vampires don't make me want to 'pull a Buffy'. They're amazing vamps and I adore them. 
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party... and to feed.
Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining - and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.
A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead... or undead.

This series has been on my shelves since I was 14 years old. Glorious!

The Warlord
Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his Bride, the one woman who can “blood” him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his Bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body—and soul.

When my ankle got chewed on in a dog attack and was on a "limited mobility" order, my mum went out and bought the first 11 books of the series at Books a Million and I read through them while my ankle wasn't weight-bearing. The addiction to this series hasn't faded. Nucking Futs Nix is my queen.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione
In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . .

Larissa Ione is my dark goddess and she is a pretty cool lady. I had absolutely no idea how to pronounce Eidolon's name and I was so frustrated so I tweeted her and asked how to pronounce it and she took the time to tell me, back when Twitter was a baby and it sucked with notifications and we used carrier pigeons. This is not your Great American Novel, I won't pretend it is. It is smutty, it is paranormal romance, there is weird demonic ish abounding and I love it.


Okay, that's six books from way back on my shelves, virtual and physical. I have both. I've started and stopped like 30 different books since I said goodbye to Zeus and I don't even know. But I'm diving back into the past for some books I know I love to get me through and you'll be meeting them in the reviews soon. Until next time, have a happily ever after.
