Searching for my reading Mojo ….

Searching for my reading Mojo ….

I haven’t reviewed in weeks. It isn’t that I haven’t been reading (boy have I been reading….) but I can’t seem to get out of my re-read cycle! In the last two weeks I’ve reread Cat and Bones (One of my all time favourite UF series), some of the Penny Reid Dating in the City (not all. I really don’t like a few) and I’m on to the O’Kane series by Kit Rocha (I may be here a while guys because….   So what did it? What killed the best reading streak I’ve been on in years? It was a book. Not a bad book, just a meh book. The issue with following so many book bloggers on twitter is that you get caught up in the excitement. When you read tweet after tweet about a book and how much others love it, you get VERY excited to read it too and share the love. I went into said book thinking ….   I came out thinking …   I… Keep Reading »

Hot Cover Monday : Avoiding the Badge by Dorothy Shaw

Hot Cover Monday : Avoiding the Badge by Dorothy Shaw

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED   Rayna Michaels may be a veterinarian, but she knows a little something about the human heart—especially when it comes to worried pet owners. Law enforcement’s bonds with their K9 partners are legendary, and Derek Hansen is a perfect example—he’s had his dog Axle in more times than she can count in the last few months. And Derek’s sculpted muscles and heart-stopping smile would be truly irresistible, if only he wasn’t an officer of the law… Derek can’t get Rayna’s stunning face and no-nonsense smarts out of his mind. Any excuse to see her will do, until he works up the nerve to ask her out. He’s not sure where her resistance to cops comes from, though he’s more than willing to prove he’s one of the good ones. But when casual dating turns into explosive lovemaking, Derek knows he has to come clean about his past before the woman he loves finds out what he’s been hiding and turns tail to run…

Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

They fell in love fifteen years ago and never quite fell out again… Laura Burne arrives in Beesley-on-Sea searching for peace, happiness, and safety—not for the teenage sweetheart she left behind. And yet, one moonlit night on the beach, she finds him anyway. Samir may be a man now, but he’s still sexy as sin, still sweet as pie, and still determined to take care of her. The problem is, while he’s remained the same, Laura’s life is forever changed—and not just by the unborn child she carries. She’s on the run from her own personal monster. Her baby’s father. Her husband. There isn’t a man alive who’d take on those complications. So Laura has to remember that just because Samir protects her, and makes her smile, and watches her with something close to hunger in his eyes, it doesn’t mean he wants her… Which is a shame. Because, against all reason and all goddamn common sense, Laura just might want him. Damaged Goods is an interracial romance starring a… Keep Reading »

Hot Cover Monday : Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely

Hot Cover Monday : Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely

Hot Cover is a meme we have done every Monday for the last two years. We are changing things up as we will now be featuring the hottest cover from the week’s upcoming releases! This week … I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations. Our arrangement worked well enough… Keep Reading »

Tuesday Talk – What do you think makes a good author interview?

Tuesday Talk – What do you think makes a good author interview?

So, I’m in the middle of sorting out the Celebrating Romance Event. I’m pretty excited about it; We have some FABULOUS authors and posts planned. I’m also doing two posts as part of a cross-promotion event (you shall see … :D). Some authors have asked for interview questions. I love interview posts as you can learn some fab things about the secret life of authors. I don’t want this to be full of the same questions these authors had to answer before, so I’m asking for your views. Personally, I want to know why authors write what they write, what books they love to read or even what they hate about romance. I like to stick to book talk, but I don’t want to just know about their latest book.. I know, I’m a rarity! So, what about you readers? What do you think makes a good interview? What do you want to read about?
