>News and New Releases in December.

>Tis the season! It’s Christmas time! That’s right Ladies and Gents in just a few short days it’ll be December and Paperback Dolls has a new look to celebrate the holidays! We had so much fun celebrating November and we look forward to having more in December! However, we do know how much time is spent with family and friends for the holidays and we would not want you to miss one single thing so we will not be having guests or our Passport feature this month. Though, don’t be so bummed. We do have an equally if not more exciting event happening here at Paperback Dolls. Along with Wick’d Reads and Vampirewear we’re having 13 days of Wick’d Bloody Kiss’mas with prizes galore!

You can see the awesome list of prizes Here.

Goddess of Legend by P. C. Cast

The new Goddess Summoning novel from the author of the multimillion- selling House of Night phenomenon.
After her car plummets off a bridge, Isabel, a world-weary photojournalist, struggles between life and death when she’s saved by the Water Goddess-with one tiny caveat: Isabel must travel to another time to seduce the legendary Lancelot du Lac away from Queen Guinevere.
The handsome knight is a dream for any woman in any century. But Isabel is the one who’s seduced by King Arthur. For Isabel, a deal is a deal. Now, the King watches as fate takes from him the mysterious beauty he has come to worship, knowing all too well that any interference on his part could destroy the kingdom he loves.

Right Hand Magic by Nancy A. Collins
[Golgotham 1]

Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal-even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets.
Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick…

Stranger by Zoe Archer
[The Blades of the Rose 4]

Gemma Murphy has a nose for a story – even if the boys in Chicago’s newsrooms would rather focus on her chest. So when she runs into a handsome man of mystery discussing how to save the world from fancy-pants Brit conspirators, she’s sensing a scoop. Especially when he mentions there’s magic involved. Of course, getting him on the record would be easier if he hadn’t caught her eavesdropping…Catullus Graves knows what it’s like to be shut out: his ancestors were slaves. And he’s a genius inventor with appropriately eccentric habits, so even people who love him find him a little odd. But after meeting a certain redheaded scribbler, he’s thinking of other types of science. Inconvenient, given that he needs to focus on preventing the end of the world as we know it. But with Gemma’s insatiable curiosity sparking Catullus’ inventive impulses, they might set off something explosive anyway…

Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey
[Drake Chronicles 3]

Hunter Wild is the youngest in a long line of elite vampire hunters, a
legacy that is both a blessing and a curse at the secret Helios-Ra
Academy, where she excels at just about everything. Thanks to her
friendship with Kieran Black, Hunter receives a special invitation to
attend the coronation of Helena Drake, and for the first time, she sees
the difference between vampires that must be hunted and vampires that
can become friends—or even more. When students at the academy fall
victim to a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack
from within. She will need someone she can trust to help her save the
future of Helios-Ra . . . help that shockingly comes in the form of
Quinn Drake, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire. Who said senior year would
be easy?

Arcane Circle by Linda Robertson
[Persephone Alcmede 4]

Even magic can’t solve everything. . . .

After facing down the forces of Fairy in mortal combat, Persephone Alcmedi still must deal with the aftermath. Not only does Seph now possess deadly secrets she must hide from the arcane and mundane world alike, but the dozens of magical creatures who’ve taken up residence behind her cornfield need food and shelter, and there’s still her foster daughter Beverly’s tenth birthday party to plan.

And that’s not all. . . . Seph’s boyfriend Johnny has revealed himself as the wærewolf Domn Lup, and the ruler of the wære world is en route from Romania to make sure Johnny really is the “king” he claims to be. But Johnny’s hiding a dangerous secret: his magic is locked in his mysterious tattoos. He and Seph must find a way for him to reclaim it—fast—despite those who have no intention of letting Johnny gain his full powers. Seph knows that, in the arcane world, strength is always a necessity and power must be constantly proven, but how far is she willing to go to succeed . . . and at what cost?

The Lady Most Likely by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway.
[Three part novel]

Three of the brightest stars of historical romance invite you to a party at the country home of the Honorable Marquess of Finchley

Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them— and a few other gentlemen—to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season.

Hugh will have time to woo whichever lady he most desires . . . Unless someone else snatches her first.

The invitation list includes:

* The horse-mad but irresistibly handsome Earl of Briarly
* The always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton
* The dashing war hero Captain Neill Oakes
* The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gwendolyn Passmore
* The terribly eligible new Earl of Charters
* The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever)

And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker who plans to find the lady most likely . . . to capture her brother’s untamed heart.

My Fair Succubi by Jill Myles
[The Succubus Diaries 3]


Living as a succubus has a bit of a learning curve, but with sexy fallen angel Noah to scratch her sensual Itch, Jackie Brighton is finally starting to feel ahead of the game. She almost doesn’t miss her gorgeous vampire master Zane—or his sinful, teasing mouth. She’s trying to convince herself of that, anyway.

But Jackie’s past mistakes catch up with her, spinning her life out of control once more. Just as her friend Remy’s inner demon comes out to play, Noah and Jackie are arrested by the angelic Serim Council. When Jackie seizes the chance to escape, she falls right into Zane’s waiting arms. As she’s pulled into a game of cat and mouse between vampires and angels, she finds she must also choose between the two men in her life. Can she decide between Noah and Zane, or will she lose everything she’s ever wanted? Because there’s more at stake than just her heart. . . .
