It's a paranormal romance. The heroine has just discovered she's a witch, and she's being chased by government witch hunters. At her side is a warrior who has protected her through all of her reincarnations.

My nominees for February 2011 Books of the Month are as follows:

His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1) by Naomi Novik His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, Book 1) by Naomi Novik

Naomi Novik is one of my newest favorite authors. I inhaled all six books in the Temeraire series without coming up for air. This series is an alternative history of the Napoleonic wars . . . with dragons. If you love Horatio Hornblower, love dragons, love fantasy, you will adore this series. Will Laurence is charming, heroic, and honorable. Temeraire is a beast who is more humane than some of the humans with whom he and Will serve. Action-packed, 19th century social issues, compelling reading from cover to cover.

Skin Deep (Laura Blackstone, #1) by Mark Del Franco Skin Deep (Laura Blackstone, Book 1) by Mark Del Franco

Mark Del Franco is my other newest favorite author. For readers not familiar with the fantasy world of Mark Del Franco, the Seelie Court established the Fey Guild to represent Fairy High Queen Maeve of Tara, diplomatically, and to work as a police force to investigate local magic-related crimes committed by fey. Laura Blackstone is an undercover agent for the International Global Security Agency, or InterSec, which investigates magic-related international criminal activity. Laura, whose cover job is public relations director for the Fey Guild, can use her Druidic abilities to assume glamours, or magical disguises, for various personas including Janice Crawford, fey backup for the Washington, D.C., police SWAT team, and Mariel Tate, representative of fey intelligence to various D.C. human agencies. An exceptionally well-done urban fantasy with nail-biting edge of your seat action. Great characters, plots, subplots, and betrayals.
