Wishlist Wednesday: River Marked and Blessed


For this Love Bites edition of Wishlist Wednesday, I thought I'd bring you an adult title and a YA title I'm wanting to get my greedy little paws on.  Both are more heavy on the paranormal than the romance, but I'm eager for them just the same!



Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.
An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...

This is topping my list of wishes right now.  No joke.  You can get all worked up over all the pretty-covered hot releases you want, I want more Mercy.  Like, now.
Can. Not. Wait.
*knocks on Patricia Briggs' door...



Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life -- or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents’ restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature -- and a flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it’s too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie’s soul?

This one... well, I'm a little torn on this one.  I really, really liked Tantalize, I thought it was a lot of fun, and I liked Quincie (and the foodie in me liked Sanguini's).  I was far less enthusiastic about Eternal.  It just didn't do it for me.  So I'm curious to see how this rounds out the series, and I'm hoping it brings my likeable Quincie back...
