My Book Haul/In My Mailbox

The Story Siren hosts a weekly meme where bloggers can share what goodies they've purchased/received this week. If you get a chance head over to The Story Siren and check out what everyone is up to! Just a small mailbox this week...

Fair Game (Alpha & Omega 3) - Patricia Briggs
Publisher: UK - Orbit
They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind. Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights...

Patricia Briggs is one of my automatic must buys and I always enjoy the partnership between Anna and Charles. I'm hoping I can read this sooner rather than later!

The Iron Duke (The Iron Seas 1) - Meljean Brook
Publisher: UK - Berkley (Published 14th April 2012)
After the Iron Duke freed England from Horde control, he instantly became a national hero. Now Rhys Trahaearn has built a merchant empire on the power-and fear-of his name. And when a dead body is dropped from an airship onto his doorstep, bringing Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth into his dangerous world, he intends to make her his next possession.
But when Mina uncovers the victim's identity, she stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens the lives of everyone in England. To save them, Mina and Rhys must race across zombie-infested wastelands and treacherous oceans-and Mina discovers the danger is not only to her countrymen, as she finds herself tempted to give up everything to the Iron Duke.

How cool does this book look? I recieved this from Berkley UK to review and even though I have the US version I just love the cover for the UK and I'm reminded of what a brilliantly sounding book it is. I'm hoping to start reading this week!

And that's it! Said it was a small mailbox this week. Did you get anything I need to drool over? :)
