This one sounds and looks…well…’wicked’
I actually really like the cover too. Thanks to @Leontine1976 for the recommendation, as I found this one on her blog.
Wicked As They Come
Delilah S. Dawson (Pocket)
Publication Date: March 2012
Genre: Urban Fantasy
First in a steampunk-tinged paranormal romance series in which a woman is transported to a world where vampires are common and she possesses psychic abilities. (Goodreads)
This sounds pretty good – I’m not sure if I like this cover or not…
Blood Law (Blood Moon Trilogy #1)
Karin Tabke (Berkley)
Publication Date: May 2011
Genre: Paranormal Romance
For all eternity, only one thing shall separate them—until the Blood Law is avenged…
The coming of the Blood Moon will lead two Lycan packs into war, spur two rival brothers into conflict, and spark an act of vengeance so evil that its effects will be felt for generations.
One woman stands at the center of it all.
As undisputed Alpha, Rafael must choose a life mate to preserve the dominance of his Lycan pack. He never suspected his mate would be a human, the same wounded, woman he seduces from the brink of death. Falon is a dangerous combination of Lycan and Slayer—beings bred to destroy his kind. Even more, she’s a mesmerizing beauty whose sensuality tempts the seasoned warrior to take unnecessary risks. The primal heat between them is irresistible, yet surrendering to it could destroy them both… for a vengeful foe stands ready in the shadows to fulfill what is rightfully his by Blood Law. (Goodreads)
This one is an interesting looking Dystopian, Science Fiction. I also love the retro feel to the book cover.

John Farrell is about to get “The Cure.”
Old age can never kill him now.
The only problem is, everything else still can…
Imagine a near future where a cure for aging is discovered and-after much political and moral debate-made available to people worldwide. Immortality, however, comes with its own unique problems-including evil green people, government euthanasia programs, a disturbing new religious cult, and other horrors. Witty, eerie, and full of humanity, The Postmortal is an unforgettable thriller that envisions a pre-apocalyptic world so real that it is completely terrifying. (Goodreads)
I’ve recently read and reviewed ‘Divine by Mistake
‘ which I really loved, so I really want to pick up the next one in the series!

After being mistaken for a goddess in the mythic world of Partholon, high school English teacher Shannon Parker settled in.

As she struggles to return to the world and the husband she loves, Shannon discovers she is not alone.
A great evil has followed her. Now more than just Shannon’s future is at stake, and she needs to somehow tap into our world’s dormant magic.
