Not Your Ordinary Book Group ~ November's Books

book jacket
Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he's the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the "everyday" world is actually full of strange and magical things--and most of them don't play too well with humans. That's where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a--well, whatever.  There's just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry's seeing dollar signs. But where there's magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name. And that's when things start to get... interesting.  Magic. It can get a guy killed. --Description from Amazon

book jacketShadow Game by Christine Feehan
(Paranormal Romance)

In Feehan's latest paranormal, sizzling sex scenes both physical and telepathic pave the road to true love for brilliant billionaire scientist Lily Whitney and Captain Ryland Miller, the leader of a squad of psionically gifted soldiers who have been imprisoned and separated from each other after receiving life-threatening enhancements. When Lily's father called her in to consult on a top-secret project he was working on for the government, he had no idea that he was signing his own death warrant or that his beloved daughter with her psychic talents would witness his murder and become a target for the traitors who were bending his project to their own evil purposes. Ryland lends his psychic strength to Lily and ignites a passion that brings him and his men into her high-security estate. Action, suspense, and smart characters make this erotically charged romance an entertaining read.  --Review from Amazon

  1. This goes out to all my fellow book group members. I'm on page 80 of Shadow Game and I think we need to up the chili pepper rating. WOW is this book spicy. It's been a while since I've read a Feehan.

  2. I started reading the Harry Dresden series after one of the wonderful librarians at BPL (who likes the same authors I do) recommended it to me. I got my mother hooked too. It's an addicting series! Harry Dresden, professional wizard for hire, is a present day knight in shining armor has he solves paranormal cases in modern day Chicago.
