Books I'm Yearning For #1

Here are a few books that I'm dying to get my hands on, whether they're already released are soon-to-be. 

BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN (Spellbound Book 1)
By Sherry Soule
June 29, 2011
Publisher: Moonlight Publishing
They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.
Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms.
Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?
It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken.
With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.

MOONLIGHT MAYHEM (Spellbound Book 2)
By Sherry Soule

Publisher: Moonlight Publishing

Shiloh Ravenwolf thought she was getting used to the supernatural events of Whispering Pines, but the full moon has brought a new wave of threats to her coastal town. Ferocious wolves, deadly necromancers, and skulking demons have descended upon the neighborhood, and Shiloh needs to gain control over her newfound magickal abilities—fast!
Whispering Pines is no stranger to the macabre. Buried beneath its charming fa├žade is a dangerous secret, kept for generations by the quirky townsfolk, all of whom have something to hide. Even the gorgeous football star Shiloh befriends seems to be hiding something. Shiloh’s also dealing with her crippling fear of the dark. And for a teen demon slayer this can be an epic problem.
When her classmates are attacked by a mysterious animal and her father is murdered, Shiloh vows vengeance. Forcing her phobias aside, she forms an unlikely coven of supernaturally gifted teens to help her eradicate this menace from her hometown, but Shiloh’s battling a different monster within herself. She’s struggling not to become the very thing she fights: evil.
But with demon blood inside her—anything can happen…

By Sherry Soule
Publisher: Moonlight Publishing

As an intelligent and sassy New Yorker, Skylar Thornton doesn’t believe in the supernatural until she moves into Summerwind Mansion and begins having nightmares about a young debutante murdered in the house. She suspects there’s something strange about this place and it’s not just the bad dreams.
Determined to unlock secrets that have remained hidden for centuries, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away. Not to mention, her uncontrollable attraction to the former owner, Dorian Knight. 
After meeting Dorian, all of her beliefs are tested. He seems so familiar, and as close to Mr. Darcy as she’ll ever get—but Jane Austen never wrote a hero like him—someone who both excites and frightens her. 
As the history of the Knight family begins to unravel, tensions heighten and old resentments turn deadly. Even though Dorian warns her about a terrible curse—she still doesn’t know who or what to believe. Now Skylar starts to wonder which she would rather hold onto—her sanity…or her life.

Something Strange and Deadly (Book 1)

By Susan Dennard
Publisher: Harper Teen
Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly #1)The years is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

There's definitely a lot more on my for list. What's on yours?
