In a Fix
by Linda Grimes
Publisher: Tor/Forge
Publication date: September 4, 2012
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

Snagging a marriage proposal for her client while on an all-expenses-paid vacation should be a simple job for Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire. A kind of human chameleon, she’s able to take on her clients’ appearances and slip seamlessly into their lives, solving any sticky problems they don’t want to deal with themselves. No fuss, no muss. Big paycheck.
This particular assignment is pretty enjoyable... that is, until Ciel’s island resort bungalow is blown to smithereens and her client’s about-to-be-fiancé is snatched by modern-day Vikings. For some reason, Ciel begins to suspect that getting the ring is going to be a tad more difficult than originally anticipated.
Going from romance to rescue requires some serious gear-shifting, as well as a little backup. Her best friend, Billy, and Mark, the CIA agent she’s been crushing on for years—both skilled adaptors—step in to help, but their priority is, annoyingly, keeping her safe. Before long, Ciel is dedicating more energy to escaping their watchful eyes than she is to saving her client’s intended.

Suddenly, facing down a horde of Vikings feels like the least of her problems.(synopsis from Goodreads)

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of In a Fix, and will be sharing my review later this summer. The synopsis sounds so good that I had to share it's awesomeness with you now! Protagonist Ciel, sounds kick-@ss! A human chameleon whose an aura adaptor! Her friend's Billy and Mark have piqued my interest as well. If you like paranormal/ urban fantasy be sure and add this one to your list or pre-order a copy! 

What book has you drooling?

I love the sound of this one! Totally adding it. Confused why she is pretending to be a client to get proposed to? Why she is getting paid to get someone to propose. Sounds kind of weird but intriguing!

You know, I really need to stop visiting your WoWs. Everytime I do, I become obsessed with a new book, and it's apparently happening again, lol. I want to read this so bad! If you wake up one morning and your copy of it is gone, I have an alibi...
