Want it Wednesday [9]

Want it Wednesday is an idea inspired by Rex Robot Reviews in which I post three books from my ever expanding wish list. Feel free to comment on the titles or suggest some of your own! I'm always open to new suggestions about great books to read.


Dead City (Dead City #1)
by Joe McKinney

After the Gulf Coast is battered by three tremendous hurricanes, a deadly virus breaks out, turning the infected into mindless, blood-thirsty zombies.

Within hours, the plague has spread throughout most of Texas and shows no signs of slowing down.

San Antonio police officer Eddie Hudson finds himself in the middle of the outbreak, along with a few other survivors.

Eddie does his best to fight off the zombie horde and locate his wife and son, who he believes still are safe and haven’t been infected by the virus.

Devil Without a Cause (Devil's Bargain #1)
by Terri Garey

Idle hands are the Devil's workshop...


Temptation and seduction are the tricks of the Devil's trade, and when offered the chance to regain his wings by playing guardian angel, Sammy Divine is hell-bent on doing things his way...

Faith McFarland is in need of a miracle. So desperate to save her sick child, she's willing to make a deal with the Devil: steal a ring worn by Finn Payne, the bad boy rock star who long ago sold his soul for rock n' roll. Temptation and seduction become necessary evils, yet Faith's salvation means Finn's damnation... because the ring is all that stands between him and Hell. Falling in love was never part of the bargain, but now that they've tasted heaven in each others' arms, can they convince the Devil to give up his due?

Blood of the Wicked (Dark Mission #1)
by Karina Cooper

Jessie Leigh is an independent witch who has made an art out of deception. Just another faceless drudge in a city that teems with them, she has stayed three steps ahead of a society eager to punish her for a history she had nothing to do with. When a witch hunter comes looking for her missing brother, she’s going to have to re-evaluate everything she ever thought she knew. Or wanted.

Silas Smith is a missionary, a soldier who has never been good at anything else. Forced into a twisting maze of lies and half-truths, he must protect the woman he thinks is human, manipulate her into finding the brother who isn’t, and fight the attraction that binds them more firmly than any Church agenda before she ends up another dead notch on his battered soul.
