Happy Book Birthday to Jeaniene Frost! Shades of Wicked is Finally out. Yay! I loved this book. I know I am biased but I honestly think it’s one of her best. Kirkus agrees.
“A flawless blend of high-stakes romance and action-packed paranormal adventure…Sexy, breathtaking, not-to-be-missed paranormal romance.”KIRKUS, starred review.

In related news, I am happy to report that her vampire troubles seem to be at an end.
Memorandum of Understanding Between Ministry of Undead Persons and Jeaniene Frost, Author
In consideration of cordial relations existing between Undead Persons and the Living and in order to establish the premises for wellbeing of the persons belonging to both categories, the Ministry of Undead Persons and Jeaniene Frost, hereinafter referred to as the Author, agree to establish through this memorandum understanding of the following agreements.
The Ministry acknowledges that the Author’s Work in Question, SHADES OF WICKED, has literary merit and provides exciting entertainment value, while still torturing its principals hereinafter known as Hero and Heroine with a sufficient degree of cruelty to elicit sympathy from both Undead and the Living.
The Ministry acknowledges that pursuit of True Love is a worthy cause regardless of one’s immortality status.
The Author acknowledges that the Ministry’s concerns have merit and agrees to deliver an Advance Reader Copy of the sequel to SHADES OF WICKED AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE to be personally reviewed by Dromichaetes of Dacia, Master of the Dark Coven for evaluation. Any delay will render this agreement null and void.
Should this agreement be breached, the Ministry will take all necessary action included but not limited to travelling to Florida and introducing the Author to undeath to ensure prompt creation and delivery of sequels.
This memorandum of understanding is formalized between ourselves on this day of October 30, 2018.
No word on whether Jeaniene is going to sign or not.
Meanwhile, happy reading!
HAHAHAHHA Omg that letter had me in stitches. Hope you’re feeling a little better!
Also…why are there not 500 comments already? Lol. I went to read the other comments and its just… me. ?
Ahaha, sleeping and writing. I had a dreadful night and tried napping to restore my equilibrium and avoid a migraine. …I didn’t get a migraine? I haven’t been as productive as I need to be, either, and I have all these wonderful books to listen to, but deadlines loom, so it will be a late night.
The devouring book horde is either sleeping in or reading Shades of wicked (we ARE the dbh). My copy, alas, is still on it’s way. ETA today.
Still, feeling slightly lonely on this post…?
I forgot it was coming out today. Nalini Singh’s new Archangel book came out, too, so I started reading that at midnight. It wasn’t until I forced myself to close the book at 2am to go to sleep that I saw Jeanine’s book in the queue. I should be able to start that one tonight after I finish Nalini’s.
I was so excited this morning to see that both books were waiting in my queue!!
+1 to both pre-orders having hit my Kindle by the time I woke up. It’s a good Tuesday.
I am so tired today, but I’m sure I’ll do it again tonight, ha ha.
Mary Beth says
I just finished Nalini’s and I can’t believe how she ended it. I actually growled. (No spoilers!)
Figure I’ll jump into Jeanine Frost’s world to recoup composure.
I know a cliffhanger no less I hate those
Sara T says
I just finished Nalini’s book (and I read it veeerrrryyy slowly as I didn’t want it end).
I screamed at the end!!
We have to wait a WHOLE ENTIRE year for the next book?????????????????
Sara T says
I too started Nalini’s book first since it got delivered first 🙂
Nalini Singh’s new book also just released too, and there’s some overlap in the fandoms.
??Absolutely fabulous ??
+1, watching them go back and forth is great. I also assume that this means Ilona is feeling better
Omg!!! I love this! Can’t wait to see the reply! I have mine queued up for this afternoon’s ride home…can’t wait to read/listen
Hope you are feeling better
Sadly no. It took me three days to write this post. 🙁
Oh, Sweetie, too bad.
Hope you (both) feel better soon.
Offering no advice. You’ve probably seen everything out there already – twice.
Mary Beth says
Tomorrow is my 26th wedding anniversary (yes, married on Halloween).
Hubby and I will raise a glass and offer prayers for a speedy recovery.
Patricia Schlorke says
Yikes! No advice from me….I’m suffering from the crazy mold and ragweed counts. I know the only way the stuff will go away if we get cold and stay cold. 🙁
My allergy medicine is doing the work.
Well shoot. I was hoping that your writing it meant that you were better.
But you still wrote it… that’s a good friend. Can’t wait to see the response! She’ll do it just to make you smile when you feel crudy.
LOL!! AWESOME. 🙂 I have my copy, waiting to read until tonight. It’s been torture on this member of the living all day. But I know I’ll binge read and want to save it for when school pickups and soccer practices are done!
Happy book birthday to Jeanine Frost (also posted on her FB page!)
Hope the Ilona Andrews house is on the mend, with the sickness.
You are a fun best friend.
Courtney Mincy says
Now I’m wanting the adventures of Dromeo.
*snicker* and happy b-day to Jeanine
Erin Moore says
Thanks for letting us know that you live! That was hysterical.
Too funny. I can’t wait to read Shades of Wicked.
Roswita Hildebrandt says
It might be a good idea to introduce the author to undeath anyway, just to ensure there will be sequels for eternity. And maybe they should visit Ilona and Gordon, too. Just sayin’.
I second that! An eternity of good books sounds good to me (though it might be dreadfully boring for the authors!)
But then we would need it too so we’d be around to read their works, though I opt for eternal life!
Just got home and am checking mail and here to see if you have pneumonia (I really hope not). Next I get to wallow in the wickedness that is Ian. Please take care of yourself.
Kathryn Townsend says
I finished it this morning. I really, really liked it. Loved Ian. Loved Veritas/Ariel. But…not so crazy about the ending…sigh.
Ditto that this book is her best. I just finished it and I loved it!
Happy b-birthday to Jeaniene Frost. Will read book over the weekend. Want to read it slowly and not rush . Loved all her work so far and Ian seems to be a a new fun hero ?Crazy busy with work.
Hope you are feeling better.
And will also want to read Archangel’s prophecy before Diamond comes out next Tuesday . Finally.
I know that I will read fast .
And then we have epic battle on battle station to look forward to . What will happen? Will there be anyone getting married?
Will there be space cannons, lasers and anyone jettisoned into outer space? What rolls will the tachi and lees play? Just squee!!!
And we need music to go with the space battle.
Sorry, just getting carried away .
Just too many fun things to look forward too.
How about the 1812 Overture with cannons played loudly?
Patricia Schlorke says
Make sure it’s with real cannon sounds not the electronic ones. I heard a version of the 1812 overture without the real cannon sounds and cracked up throughout the overture. It sounded like someone sat on a whoopee cushion (or shot a fart gun). 😀
That’s hilarious! I have a version that starts off with a men’s choir with deep voices, there are real cannons and church bells… absolutely love it! Would have to find the cd to say who does it, etc. Near the end of the work day, it would be great to have that playing over the PA system!
Ride of the valkyries was the first to pop in to my head ?
Oct/Nov is rocking for books from all my fav authors….will read this wkend, alas I got whatever horrible nasty cold virus monster that is floating around – way her here in rainy Victoria – arghhhh
BWAHAHA, you two crack me up! Kinda hoping ‘the Author’ doesn’t sign off, as the consequences would no doubt be entertaining to read about!
Well worth the three days it took to write. Very funny. What will Jeaniene do??? Will she sign or will she go with undeath???
Nothing I can do or say to speed the recovery at Andrews’ house of unwellness, but hope you are all starting to feel better, if only a little and the worst is behind you. Fingers crossed.
Fan in California says
You feel like crap and you still gift us with a laugh out loud post. Thank you!!!!! And hope you feel much better very, VERY soon!
PS Hope your Dad’s departure/arrival home went smoothly.
d LM a says
Dromo is Hooked …
ARC’s cannot be intimidated from authors … poor planning, understandable but poor
This is great! I will really laugh if she signs it tomorrow on Halloween! ?
JF does a bloody finger-print and vampire licks it off – does that void the contract?
Bwahahahaha!!! +1000000000 for this comment!
You should be resting and getting better young lady.
“Shades of Dromeo”
by Andrews & Frost
Huh, I don’t even know how that happened. It’s not supposed to say anonymous.
If “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” isn’t on DVD, there is always the sound track. Hysterical show – Brit comedy musicals are always fun. Won the Tony in 2014, so fairly new show, albeit set in London in 1907.
Agree! I saw it a couple of years ago and LOVED IT!! It was in Charlotte for about three days only. A show I could see every year. Loved the costumes and the songs. Like to see musicals with a great male lead.
Excellent. Next book on my ‘to read’ list.
Haha, love it ! I’m a litlle bit sad that we won’t see letters from the Undead anymore ?
I’m tempted by this new book, but I’m trying to resist out of respect for my wallet ?
Sending healing and positive vibes ~~
Shades of Wicked was awesome! Lived up to expectations and more. Glad for the fun here …
*giggle snort* ….introduction to undeath to spur along sequels creation…. Gotta love that motivation (retribution) clause….. *more snickering*
Hope you and Gordon and anyone else in the family that is still ailing are on the road to recovery. Hope it doesn’t linger.
I had a flu shot Oct 4 and fell ill the following week. Just got back on sturdy legs this week. But I seriously medicated that first week so it wouldn’t get too far out of control…
