To Be Read Tuesday

It's Tuesday again.  Although I am currently wrapped up in the Demonica series by Larissa Ione, as soon as I finish-I'm on book four-here are the books I'll be pulling off the bookshelf and pulling out my neglected Nook to read.  What will you be reading this week?

The Vampire Voss by Colleen Gleason
Regency London – a dizzying whirl of balls and young ladies pursued by charming men. 

But the Woodmore sisters are hunted by a more sinister breed: Lucifer's own. 

Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member the Dracule – a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls – the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral ... until Angelica. 

Angelica Woodmore possess the Sight, an ability invaluable to both sides of a looming war among the Dracule. Her very scent envelops Voss in a scarlet fog of hunger – for her body and her blood. But he is utterly unprepared for the new desire that overcomes him – to protect her. 

Now Voss must battle his very nature to be with Angelica ... but this vampire never backs down from a fight.

Griffin Rising by Darby Karchut  
"Sometimes, lad, it's hell being an angel." 

For centuries, rumors have abounded of a lowly caste of supernatural beings known as the Terrae Angeli. Armed with the power to control Earth, Fire, Wind and Water, these warriors secretly serve as guardians for mortals in danger. 

But for one young angel-in-training, Griffin, life is hell as a cruel master makes his apprenticeship a nightmare. On the verge of failing, a new mentor, Basil, enters his life and changes it forever. It is their father-and-son relationship, sometimes turbulent, often hilarious, always affectionate, that sings through the story like a pure note. 

Masquerading as the average teen next door, Griffin struggles to learn his trade, navigate the ups and downs of modern life among humans (including falling in love with the girl next door), and prepare for the ancient trial-by-combat every apprentice must pass at sixteen or be forced to become mortal.
