Over the years, I’ve picked up many tips and tricks. Some I wish I’d known sooner and so I’m going to pass on the love. Bloggers, feel free to add your own additions in the comments below; the more the merrier! Authors are not your friends. This one is the hardest to deal with. Authors are business people and the majority of them will deal with you, the blogger, in a professional capacity. They will be lovely and friendly but please don’t read more into it. FTC regulations are not there for fun. I’m fucking deadly serious on this one. No, I don’t give a flying fuck if you are international you need to still do it if you are targetting US readership. Declare where you got the product you are reviewing, declare if you have any relationship with the company that produces them and you better damn declare if you receive any money for reviews. Picture copyright means you can’t just put any picture on your site… Keep Reading »

HELL HATH NO FURY . . . For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction. LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she’s the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there’s no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won’t find her . .

The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after. A new supersexy insta-love novella from USA TODAY bestselling author Jenika Snow that has a gruff lumberjack yelling T-I-M-B-E-R for the woman he’s been waiting for. The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood. I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself.

Well, as I’ve said, on a Tuesday, I will be posting book-related talk here on Scorching Book Reviews. This could be from me, an author, another blogger or a reader. If you want to get involved, DM/email me 🙂 Today, you get to read stuff from me!! 🙂 I want to start with something that has been bugging me of late about blogging. Now, I’ve been blogging for around 8 years (I am an old timer in this game) and the landscape has changed dramatically. Some things I really enjoyed being part of are gone and the one thing I’m going to focus on is blog-hop memes. Now, maybe I’m just missing them all but I can’t seem to find many outside of YA anymore and that saddens me. I love talking to fellow bloggers on twitter (I’m barred from FB as I’m not a real person :D) but it doesn’t necessarily mean I visit their site and see all the hard work they’ve put in. Blog Hop… Keep Reading »

Liv’s words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she’d known. The bulky football muscles had streamlined into a harder, leaner package and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence.

Liv Arias thought she’d never return to Long Acre—until a documentary brings her and the other survivors back home. Suddenly her old flame, Finn Dorsey, is closer than ever, and their attraction is still white-hot. When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges cop might be exactly what she needs..

A fangirl’s heart is so fickle. Mia Jones, the ultimate pop culture fangirl, is no exception. For a year she’s lived out of a suitcase as a travel podcaster, visiting one tourist trap and fan convention after another. Still healing from her last heartbreak, she’s not ready to slow down and really take in the view…until Kincaid Cameron. A Scottish veteran with a panty-melting smile and dark gaze becomes the best view she’s had in a while. A veteran’s heart is so ready for a home. The list of things Kincaid didn’t want to do after leaving the service could kill a rain forest if he wrote them down…until Mia. She surprises him when nothing else does. She’s dead sexy and appears as adventuress as her travels. As a former SBS member, he knows all too well how the truth can hide underneath the surface. He suspects he could easily become a casualty, another man forgotten as her next destination tempts her away. Their heated affair begins with seemingly innocent… Keep Reading »

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late. Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up… Keep Reading »

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard. When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do.

I’m starting a new feature here on the blog; Tuesday Talk! I want Tuesday Talk to be a feature where readers can read something different from their favourite authors by hearing their views on a topic of their choosing. It can be a piece on anything the author wants to talk about. So, what do I need? Well authors, I need you! If you are interested in writing something, drop me a line on twitter or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do I have any limits to what you write? I reserve the right to refuse to publish anything I find objectionable but most topics will be fine. It could be a thought provoking piece or something as simple as recipe sharing, there are no limits and it doesn’t have to take you an age to put together. Why would you want to take part? It’s good promo! Also, more and more people are choosing to buy books from authors with a social media presence; this is just a different format…. Keep Reading »
