In My Mailbox #30

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
*I received this ARC through Book It Forward tours.  I'm really enjoying it so far; if you are a fan of love triangles, you must read this book! It has a really crazy one.  One thing I am not a fan of is the cover....kinda cheesy. This book comes out on the 14th, so keep your eye out for my review!
Goodreads says, "Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions—for Hell—and she possesses a unique skill set that has the King of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he’s as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance.  Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn’t get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.  But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay…for all of them."

Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
*I downloaded this book to my Nook. I've heard such great things about it from many book bloggers, so I'm looking forward to reading it soon.  
Goodreads says, "New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there’s no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends... when you’re immortal. But this time is different: Nastasya knows that this new town must hold her salvation—or her death.  Nastasya was born into darkness, and has embraced it her whole life. Four hundred years ago, a tragedy robbed her of her birthright, and she’s been living a lie ever since. Now, four centuries of exploring the depths and limits of dark power has left Nastasya feeling sickened unto death. If she continues down this road, she will end up as a very dark, twisted, evil thing—with unthinkable power. Or she can begin the long, painful road toward light, and reclaim the destiny that others tried to destroy.  They’re rare. You may have never met one, never sat next to one on a plane, never eaten in the same restaurant at the same time. But the Immortals are there. Have always been there. Will always be there. Moving among humans, playing out their own cursed fate. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with huge, sweeping implications for mankind. But no one will ever know. Except you.

  4. Will note down the first one even though the cover is cheese-a-licious! I guess the plot is better than the look right ;)
