My Book Haul/Showcase Sundays

I've decided to join Books, Biscuits and Tea's Showcase Sunday to share my lovely book hauls each week. Have a look back at Vicki's link up to see what everyone is up too!
So last week my book buying ended with my birthday! One of my lovely friends sent me an amazon voucher and I wasted no time picking up a few goodies!

Magic Dreams (Kate Daniels #4.5) - Ilona Andrews
Kindle Book
Alpha Pack leader Jim Shrapshire has always been the strong, silent type. But something has come over him--a magic force currently residing in one of the Pack's headquarters. Were-tigress Dali Harimau has always wished she could get Jim's attention--but now he needs her help. Stricken with a magic-sickness, Jim needs Dali's flair for magic. And to save him, she must challenge a powerful, dark being to a battle of wits.

Kate Daniels is one of my favourite series so I really wanted to get my hands on this novella - especially as Dali has always intrigued me!

Mina Wentworth and the Invisible City (The Iron Seas #1.5) - Meljean Brook
Kindle Book
After Mina is called in to investigate the murder of an aristocratic bounder, her husband Rhys—known to the world as the Iron Duke—must overcome his fear for his new bride before his need to protect her tears them apart. But when she invites him to join her at the murder scene, a search for a mysterious killing machine puts her in more danger than ever before…a danger that leads straight back to Rhys.

The Iron Duke has been one of my favourite reads in 2012 so this was another novella I wanted to get my hands on before I read Heart of Steel, which is at the top of my TBR pile!

Riveted (The Iron Seas #3) - Meljean Brook
Publisher: Berkley UK
A century after a devastating volcanic eruption forced Iceland’s inhabitants to abandon its shores, the island has become enshrouded in legend. But the truth behind the legends is mechanical, not magical—and the mystery of the island a matter of life and death for a community of women who once spilled noble blood to secure their freedom. 
Five years ago, Annika unwittingly endangered that secret, but her sister Källa took the blame and was exiled. Now Annika serves on an airship, searching for her sister and longing to return home. But that home is threatened when scientific expedition leader David Kentewess comes aboard, looking to expose Annika’s secrets. Then disaster strikes, leaving David and Annika stranded on a glacier and pursued by a madman, with their very survival depending on keeping the heat rising between them—and generating lots of steam.

And as my steampunk fascination continues I couldn't not get Riveted as soon as the book buying ban finished! :-)

So what have you picked up this week?
