Before the Press Review: An Immortal Legacy - By Ashley Harrison Blalock

I met Ashley through, Taking It One Book at a Time's Facebook page. After reading up on her book, I became very interested so she then sent me her manuscript to review, because her book is in the process of being published, and I can honestly say I was blown away!

Kylie Galen has had a lot of crap tossed in her lap lately. Her parents are getting a divorce for who the heck knows why. Her boyfriend broke up with her because she wouldn't put out. And her grandmother died because . . . well, older people do that. But now, Kylie's acquired a stalker and she hasn't a clue what he wants or how to get rid of him . . . and she really wants to get rid of him because apparently she's the only one who sees him. Thinking she may be losing it, her parents send her off to see a psychologist who gets Kylie sent to Shadow Falls Camp. Kylie and her parents think it's a camp for troubled teens.

Rage (Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Book #2) - By Jackie Morse Kessler

Release Date: 4/4/11
Purchase Info: Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Missy didn’t mean to cut so deep. But after the party where she was humiliated in front of practically everyone in school, who could blame her for wanting some comfort? Sure, most people don’t find comfort in the touch of a razor blade, but Missy always was . . . different.

That’s why she was chosen to become one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War. Now Missy wields a new kind of blade—a big, brutal sword that can cut down anyone and anything in her path. But it’s with this weapon in her hand that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own pain: control.

A unique approach to the topic of self-mutilation, Rage is the story of a young woman who discovers her own power and refuses to be defeated by the world.

I started Rage without reading the first book in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse series, Hunger. Something about the story, the cover, it just kind of screamed, "READ ME", and I'm glad that I did.

Rush of Darkness (Primal Instincts Book #7) - By Rhyannon Byrd

Release Date: 3/29/11
Publisher: HQN
Website: Rhyannon Byrd
Purchase Info: Amazon, Barnes & Nobles

Raine Spenser is on the brink. Held prisoner because of her abilities, Raine—a powerful psychic as well as vampire—desperately needed a savior. But the last one she expected was the green-eyed soldier who'd once hunted her kind. Since her rescue, she's tried to forget Seth McConnell, unable to cope with the strange, simmering attraction that draws her to the compelling human.

But their goals—find the Kraven who held Raine captive and destroy him—are the same. The ever-growing web of danger surrounding them draws these two unlikely allies closer together, and anger slowly turns into an explosive passion they're finding harder and harder to deny….

True Blood Season 4: Waiting Sucks (#1)

OK, so I am a True Blood junkie! I might not always agree with the direction that the show went in compared to the book, but I will agree that it's an amazing series!

So as you all know season 4 is RIGHT around the corner! Most everyone knows it'll debut Sunday, June 12th, but HBO is still not confirming that date. One thing that they have done is started airing their famous, "Waiting Sucks", clips! Below is the first one that they aired, shirtless Eric, yum!

So for those of you who have read the books and know how this book starts, do you think it'll be good?

It's Monday, that means one thing...Man Candy

With the lag that I'm feeling this morning, I'm blaming it all on daylight savings, ugh! So I need some cheering up, and what better way then with some steaminess :)

(though this just makes me wanna crawl back into bed)

She soon learns that Oliver is not ordinary, nor is the rest of his family, including a sister who openly hates her and a brother who will stop at nothing for revenge. As she fights for her life, and Oliver's love, Laney discovers that the fictional world of vampires isn't so fictional after all. Nobody is safe, especially Laney, Oliver's most important priority, and he will stop at nothing to protect her.

Hunger Aroused - By Dee Carney

Release Date: 11/8/2010
Publisher: Carina Press
Website: Dee Carney
Purchase Info: Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Jasmine is sick in bed when a sexy stranger breaks in and reveals she's suffering an irreversible case of vampirism. And because her turning wasn't approved by the Council, he must kill her once the transition is complete. In the meantime, the executioner offers to ease her torment with chocolate, hot peppers or sexual release. Fortunately for them both, Jasmine's kitchen is bare...
Corin's honor demands he do his duty, but he cannot execute the lovely woman while any part of her humanity remains. He must also find—and kill—her sire. Jasmine denies ever having contact with a vampire, causing Corin to question the justice of his orders. Sensing his hesitation, the Council dispatches another executioner, forcing the pair to make a run for it.
Every hour they spend together—every sensual encounter they share—finds them growing closer. Now Corin will have to choose: kill the woman he loves, or go against everything he believes to set her free.

Fresh Face Friday 3-4-11

A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door. . .

Looking For Trouble

Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, cause she's not looking for a man. Mama's wrong. Addy has looked. There's just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, breathtakingly well-built hunk of a warrior from--well, not from around here, that's for sure. Mama thinks he might be European or maybe even a Yankee. Brand says he's from another dimension.

Addy couldn't care less where he's from. He's gorgeous. Serious muscles. Disturbing green eyes. Brand really gets her going. Too bad he's a whack job. Says he's come to rescue her from a demon. Puh-lease. But right after Brand shows up, strange things start to happen. Dogs talk and reanimated corpses stalk the quite streets of Hannah. Her mortal enemy Meredith, otherwise known as the Death Starr, breaks out in a severe and inexplicable case of butt boils. Addy might not know what's going on, but she definitely wants a certain sexy demon hunter by her side when it all goes down . . .

After finishing law school, taking the bar exam (and I'm not talking seeing how many shots you can hold down in 15 minutes), and getting a job with a state agency, Lexi realized somewhere along the way that people are assholes and she needed a true escape from it all. So then came along, Demon Hunting in Dixie. Lexi George's debut novel that leads us down into the heart of the south. Where the main character seems sharp as a tack and won't take non-sense from NO ONE.

Inner Heroine Chronicles: Good Deeds, then explosions...(Part 1)

Today Moxie (that's what my heroine named herself) has decided that she needs to blow something up. She's just super pissed, for whatever reason, and destruction is her outlet of choice. So here I am trying to calm her down. Make her understand that combustibles are not the answer...

though it would be pretty cool to see her go and take out the utility company, they're on my shit list....but no.
