The sequel to Space Junque.
Her fate was to hold the world together. His destiny was to tear it apart.
As a child, Durga was chosen by the goddess to save the world from sterility and extinction. Now her eighteenth birthday approaches, and Durga must take her place among the chalices -- women made fertile by the goddess to ensure more souls for the universe. Durga's mission does not include love ... but Khai, the scion of Luxor, is unlike any man she's ever met.
Char Meadowlark once played a role in the goddess's plans. Now her lover, Jake Ardri, heads an emerging city-state whose enemies covet everything Jake has built. As Jake navigates the uneasy waters of political intrigue, his very existence is threatened. To save him, Char must share him with a chalice ... one trained to take him to the heights of sexual ecstasy.
In flagrante apocalypto: When the veil drops between life and oblivion, only love can save them from the abyss.
I admit it was the artwork that attracted me to this book and there is a book called Space Junque which is the first in this series I haven't read yet. Maybe I should add the first as well. However, wouldn't go with this weeks theme. ;)

I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings. But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead. Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling … or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead …
Ah, if you follow this blog you know I love this series. Looks like the next one after this will be called, Spider's Revenge. Oh and fans of the elemental assassin might also want to know she is going to write #6. More Gin and company! *squee!*
...and if you think I enjoy spiders... think again. Arachnophobia... I gots it. To prove my point... I give you the following commercial break:
So don't deceive and tell me what tangled web you now weave. In other words... what is on your wishlist this week? One book for all 8 arms? ;)
