My most awaited of 2012

Hey, so we're one week into the new year and I've been thinking - what book releases am I most looking forward to this year? And you know what..the longer I thought about it, the longer the list got, so i'm I'm going to share my top few with you!

8. Time Untime - Sherrilyn Kenyon (Dark Hunter/Hellchaser series)
The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…
Long before recorded history, there was a warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.
The Time Untime approaches…Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind.
What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life.
Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has brought back the one person he can’t fight. The one person who once held the most sacred part of him.
His heart.
But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.
Will he be able to make it again?

I was very intreigued by Ren's character in Retribution so I'm glad he's up next...unfortunately we have to wait until 2nd AUGUST 2012. So long....

7. Darker after Midnight - Lara Adrian (Midnight Breed #10)
In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order--a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike--to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire at the centre of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.
At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, once a morally rigid enforcer of Breed law, now a warrior fallen from grace, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. With addiction beckoning him toward eternal darkness, Chase’s path to redemption has never seemed more out of reach--until he finds himself drawn to a beautiful young woman who may be something much more than she seems . . .

Looking forward to this immensely, I have been enjoying the Midnight Breed series, and I knew that he'd be paired with the politicians assistant, Tavia Fairchild. I'm not certain but I think it's the end of the Dragos storyline as well...but don't quote me on that. JANUARY 2012. Not long now!

6. Lothaire - Kresley Cole (Immortals after Dark #11)

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness—until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder—or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

Another JANUARY 2012 release! I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for this to be released and now it's almost here I'm so nervous. Lothaire has always intrigued me and I think his is going to be the most gripping story of the entire series. I can't wait.

5. Lethal Rider - Larissa Ione (Lords of Deliverance #3)
Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian, Regan Cooper, shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse-he's about to become a father.
Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted-a family.

Ready or not Death's about to come-a-knocking. Than is one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse - the deadliest, death incarnate. And this is his story. After the end of Immortal Rider I cannot wait for this book. I want to read it now! But I have to wait til MAY 2012 for the privilege.

4. Born of Silence - Sherrilyn Kenyon (League Series)
Death stalks the night…
Kere, the Caronese god of death, is the second most infamous member of the shadow organization called Sentella. As an explosives engineer who is known for striking terror into the hearts of all enemies and the League, the bounty on his head is truly staggering. No one outside the Sentella knows his real identity.
Zarya Starska grew up hard on the back streets of hell. Because of his political beliefs, her father was labeled a traitor and her family hunted to the brink of extinction. But Zarya dreams of a different life and a different world. A world where the harsh hand of the Caronese government doesn’t destroy the lives of its citizens. As a resistance leader, her goal is to topple to government that took her father’s life. Her right hand is a mysterious man known only as Kere.

Kere has a dark secret. As he aids the resistance, he’s actually working to bring down his own family- the Cruels. Born and bred from one of the oldest and noblest families in the United Systems, Kere’s real name is Darling Cruel. And the one thing he wants most is to see his uncle, who stole the crown from his father, to pay for his crimes.
If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth…
Darling’s entire life is a lie. No one has ever seen the real him. No one except Zarya. She’s the only person he’s ever fully trusted with the truth. But when she betrays him by allowing a weapon he designed just for her to be used against the members of his family that he would die to protect, all bets are off.
The hero is now the monster…
Betrayed to the deepest level, Darling becomes an even worse enemy than his uncle. His goal is not only to reign, but to kill every resistance member he can find. He won’t rest until all of them are dead and that includes Zarya.
The twisted hand of fate…
Zarya is the only hope to reach the heart of the man her people once considered their ally. A man who hates her with a fury so great that she knows it’s just a matter of time before he kills her. But if she can find the part of him that once trusted her, the part of him that once loved her, she might be able to save not only her own life, but those of her people. It’s an impossible mission.
Luckily, she doesn’t play the odds.

DARLING DARLING DARLING!!! Ok, I'm more than a bit excited about this but I have always adored Darling's character...can't wait til APRIL to read it!

3. The Darkest Seduction - Gena Showalter (Lords of the Underworld #9)

Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive—but his potent allure comes at a terrible price.  Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die.  And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he’d thought was forever beyond his reach…until now.
Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet, in Paris’s arms the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up. 
Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally– or tear them apart?

Finally Paris will have his story resolved. Fans of Gena Showalter (like me) have all been eagerly anticipating the climax of this storyline and it's taken 6 books to do it. I can't wait til FEBRUARY to get my hands on it!

2. Fury's Kiss - Karen Chance (Dorina Bararab Series)
I honestly don't know all that much about this book other than the fact we won't see it 'til OCTOBER 2012! Come on, that's an awful long time. I really want to know what's happening with Dory and Louis Caesar. Also will Dory actually begin to like Mircea, and will Cassie (from the other series) ever meet Dory? 

1. Lover Reborn

In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. The city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.Now back in the Brotherhood – and unrecognisable as the vampire leader he once was – Tohrment is physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair. When he begins to see his beloved in his dreams – trapped in a cold, isolating netherworld – Tohr turns to a self-serving fallen angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost.
When he’s told he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr knows they are all doomed…Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past, and a very hot, passion-filled future… but can his heart let go and set all of them free? 

Tohr! Enough said.
Fans of J.R. Ward will know what I mean, you can't help but love this damaged warrior and having to wait 'til MARCH will just kill us all.

*Much of the above information can be found on the authors websites, a couple even have fabulously tempting excerpts which I recommend if you're intrigued by these.
