I've Got My Eye On You (1)

I've been a wee bit more internet social this week and discovered some great blogs and lovely people. The downside of this is that I am seeing so many new to me books that I want right NOW. Seeing as my tbr pile is truly shameful, I'm going to try to stop myself from grabbing everything I see and trim it down to a few books that I don't think I can live without.

I saw a post over at Mailbox Monday that was encouraging readers to share their best finds of the week via their Books That Caught Our Eye posts. I love, love, love that idea so this is my warped version of it.

Here are my newest discoveries:

Bob over @ Beauty In Ruins lead me to some monsterporn/WTFery titles (thanks Bob, I think!). Two were free,woo hoo! The other I put on my wishlist.

Dangerous Urges Anthology by [Hartmann, Konrad]Dangerous Urges by Konrad Hartmann

There are twisted alleys and dark corners in the world, the sorts of places most people never go, much less go looking for sex. But some people have urges light just can’t satisfy. From the master of horror erotica, Konrad Hartmann, comes Dangerous Urges -- an anthology of seven stories about the kinds of people who can only get what they need from shadowy places.

Dangerous Urges starts with a modern tale of abuse, primal lusts, and recovery and ends with ancient Roman nobles with tastes more depraved than Caligula’s. In between these, you’ll encounter grave robbers, shark fanciers, mad patriarchs, eldritch abominations, and even a relatively ordinary necrophiliac. Follow Konrad Hartmann down a dark alley, and see what he has to show you back there. We promise you an unforgettable experience. Beyond that… You can’t say we didn’t warn you.

The Triad and the Innocent Maidens (Monster, Supernatural, Cuckolding, Voyeurism Erotica): A Fantasy Erotic Tale (The Adventures of the Triad Book 1) by [James, Reed]The Triad and the Innocent Maiden by Reed James

A young witch, a nubile thief, and a mighty paladin brave dangers to rescue the innocent maidens!
Fiona, a young witch with a destiny, is out on her first adventure with Aoifa and Seamus, her new spouses. The three have been sworn to protect the mountains against the kobolds, wargs, and other monsters. When Fiona learns that an evil warlock has gathered innocent maidens for a dark ritual, she vows to save them.

But only if she can drag her husband and wife from their naughty fun. Seamus and Aoifa are more interested reveling with the sexy and beautiful villagers they rescue. Seamus enjoys the intimate favors of hot wives and sultry barmaids. Aoifa is eager for whatever illicit fun with man, woman, or monster she can find!

Fiona will have to work hard to keep her spouses in line and focused on their mission!
Something Good, Something Bad, Something Dirty: Stories by [Ellis, Brian Alan]Something Good, Something Bad, Something Dirty by Brian Alan Ellis

A dude jumps out of a window; Halloween goes to Hell; a junk-sick redhead ransacks a wallet; a school teacher’s habit of leaving drawers open rattles her obsessive compulsive husband; a gory melodrama unfolds as a self-absorbed mother and her sadistic daughter vie for the love of a handsome con artist; two losers conjure bloodlust fantasies to pass the time; a severed body part resurrects to claim vengeance against a cunning, materialistic witch; a trailer park love triangle reaches its drunken precipice at a Sunday barbecue—just a few of the sometimes good, sometimes bad, and sometimes dirty attractions found in Brian Alan Ellis’s latest, aptly titled story collection, where bearded women, bloody tampons, online dating debacles, ornery waffle waitresses packing pistols, drunk Harry Dean Stanton look-a-likes dressed as Santa Claus, floating Mickey Mouse T-shirts, and lawn gnomes on fire all cast a harrowing glow!

Barb @ Bookertsfarm caught my eye with this one:

28671643Ring Rider by Jane George

A teenage, trailer-park runaway is offered a place to live and work in a struggling, one-ring circus. But nothing at Circus Lunastrata is what it seems, especially not the young circus cook, a guitar-playing, Edgar-Allan-Poe-quoting guy intriguing enough to be dangerous to her off-limits heart.
Soon, she’s risking not only her heart, but her life, as she dares to enter this magical and treacherous new world.

But it’s the only world she’s ever wanted to call home.

Warning: The book you will read is the product of many magical transformations. You may have seen it in its previous stages, most notably as The Mumbo Jumbo Circus. But while lovers of this book's former mysterious mayhem may recognize characters and scenes, Ring Rider most definitely contains enough new twists to keep magic circus lovers turning the pages. But those more faint at heart, who may cover their eyes at the sight of swearing, violence, and mild sexual situations, may want to find a tamer circus elsewhere.

And Scifi and Scary altered me to:

30849024Seed Me by Konn Lavery

If you’re reading this, then you did not take the above warning seriously. In that case, you’re probably as stupid as me. I’m Logan, by the way. I didn’t pay attention to any warning signs either. Being an unemployed deadbeat in Edmonton with no family and getting dumped by your girlfriend for her best friend can wear a guy down. All I had was my cokehead buddy, Skip, to cheer me up.

Surprisingly, my precautionary tale was not caused by either Skip or the drugs. Let’s just say a drunken make-out session with a pale girl by a dumpster, who was supposedly pronounced dead earlier in the evening, can leave you mentally jumbled up. A good motivator to figure this scenario out is having robed cultists stalk you, asking where the girl is.

Is this an ill twist of fate? Did I bring this on myself? Is there a reason behind my misfortune? Is the moral to not make out with spooky girls behind dumpsters? Hell if I know...

Thanks everyone! I'm excited to see what this week will bring.

What did find on your blog perusals this week?


  1. I am a bit curious about those last two on your list there. :)

  2. Oh my gosh blog visits are very dangerous to the tbr pile. I add them faster than I can read them. lol
