Cover Whore - International Duel Edition

Well after last weeks, Tale of Two Covers edition, I thought I'd bust out with a international edition since most authors provide different covers for US vs UK covers.

So here we goooooooooooooooooo!

#1: Bloodlines - By Richelle Mead
(UK left, US right)
Personally I like them both, but I'm leaning towards the UK version

Who: J.S. Bailey

What: The Land Beyond the Portal

As Laura placed her left foot on the floor, something clicked and a low, humming vibration filled the room. Suddenly, she was surrounded by an intense, blinding, white light, and she was gone.

It’s a dark, snowy night when Laura awakens at the bottom of a staircase with a horrible headache and no idea how she got there. To make matters worse, she is alone in the house, snowed in by a blizzard, and has no way to call for help. While exploring the house in a desperate attempt to trigger the return of her memory, she discovers a small room beneath the basement. She steps inside, and an unknown force instantly transports her to a mysterious, pastoral land.

She finds a quaint village that at first glance seems like a peaceful place; but Laura soon learns that peace is merely an illusion. Why are terrible rumors circulating about the village’s leader? Why do the villagers worship a sinister deity who bears no resemblance to her own powerful and loving God? Most importantly, will she ever remember who she is and find her way home? In her quest for answers, she uncovers a myriad of forbidden secrets that might keep her trapped in The Land Beyond the Portal.

A Strange Freedom: Blood and Fireworks - By Kiki Howell

Release Date: 5/27/11
Website: Kiki Howell
Purchase Info: Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Can a witch gain her freedom to live as she chooses between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July?  

A man was not exactly what Meranda was looking for when she went to her grandfather’s grave for a ritual of remembrance on Memorial Day.  However, what she thinks is a ghost in the heavy shadows of the night ends up a vampire. 

When Meranda’s grandfather lay dying on a bloody battlefield in WWII, Alexander promised the man he would take care of his family if he got out of the war alive.  Even though he returned to the states a night walker, he has done his best to honor that promise from a distance. 

When Meranda is hurt due to his negligence, Alexander valiantly fights his own desires for her blood to save her.  Only, once she is better, their lives clash.  But, using a little magic, she plans to win their war by the time the fireworks light up the sky on Independence Day.

Hot, hot, hot!

First we'll need lifeguards in case someone gets a cramp ;)

Scale of Hotness

So over the last year and a half that I've been truly reading, I have come across MANY different types of intimate scenes. I'm not just talking getting it on here people, I'm talking the work up to the big moment too!

So I thought that I had a pretty good idea of how hot "HOT" was.....yeah that was until I started this series called, The Black Dagger Brotherhood! I mean honestly, how the hell do you compete with that?!

So I have configured my own 1-5 Scale of Hotness, take a look:

Ruby Red Metallic - By Casey Sheridan

Release Date:
Publisher: Breathless Press
Purchase Info: Amazon

Alaina knows her cars and she doesn't view what she does for a living as stealing. Using all the physical attributes she has at her disposal, she merely acquires the high-end vehicles for a business partner.
Although the beautiful cars turn her on, she has her heart set on a particular gem. When she finds her jewel, Alaina is pleasantly surprised by its handsome owner, Scott.
Now she's faced with a dilemma. Does she choose the man or the gem?

You want sexual electricity, wrapped in erotica hotness? Well then you HAVE to pick up Ruby Red Metallic!

Alaina is a smart, sexy woman who's "go-get-um" reflex is triggered by the sight of an amazing car. Her drive for beautiful cars is unlike any I've ever seen, and believe me I've read about some seriously car-crazed males. It's not that Alaina is just wanting a ride in these cars, she's lifting them for clients, and using what god gave her to get what she wants always works! When she meets Scott she finds herself breaking the one rule she has always set for herself, NO SEX. But there's just something about him that makes her want to bend her limits, and I think that little something is Ruby Red Metallic.

This read was most definitely hot, steamy, and amazingly seductive. I only wish that it might have been a tiny bit longer. Alaina is so fierce & sexy, her and Scott made a fabulous pair. So perhaps in the future we'll see the second part to this duo's story? Until then make sure you pick up this hot read!

Monday....I hate you

This right here, is EXACTLY what I will be doing during lunch.....

nothing can help me today. I've had my Red Bull....nothing...I even had coffee (yuck!) and nothing!

So apparently the Sandman full on ran my ass over last night, put it in reverse and then did a burn out in my mind, because I am so lethargic that I can't even force myself to do a damn thing at work.

This serious case of zombie-ness is bringing my whole day down, and I feel like I'm just going thru the zombie motions.

Next stop, eating boss' brain and terrorizing the local neighborhood. I'll be back!

Pre-Weekend Man Candy (Army Edition)

So I figured this last stretch of work day could use a little pazza!

Where did his handcuffs go? They were just right here.....

Who: T. R. Graves

What: Warriors of the Cross

Allison La Crosse, beginning a challenging family medicine residency, leaves the protection of her family.  With the transfer, her worst nightmares come true.  Her closely guarded mystical talents – those which seldom appeared before the move – unleash themselves from her confinement and reveal their presence with very little provocation. 

Allison’s most terrifying power is her compulsion to cure the sick with her touch.  Given her career, this gift would be valuable if she were not drawn like a magnet to the ailing person's every symptom.  Some of which are fatal.

At the hospital and surrounded by life-and-death emergencies, Allison’s inability to manage her impulse turns deadly.  When it does, her mentor, Brody, rescues her from her own demise.  His resuscitation ignites an exciting and tempestuous bond between them.

Desperate for a cure, they join forces and embark upon a journey to uncover the origins of Allison’s lethal curse.  In the midst of their adventure, Allison exposes a secret pursued by many…known by few.  According to the discovery, she was not born into the family she adored.  Unbeknownst to her or the surrogate family, she was switched at birth.  With this knowledge, she learns there is a malevolent world her biological parents tried to keep from her.  In fact, her mother sacrificed herself to make sure Allison remained safe from its dangers and her enemies.

Wrap It Up - May

Ohhhhhhhhhh, what a month May was. Actually it was kind of a bitch, from the reviewing P.O.V, and that's simply because my brain refused to work.

But fear not, things are better now! See I actually finished a review today! Now I shall commence strutting around the office and patting my own back.

OK, OK, now adding to this amazing parade of self accomplishment, here's what I managed to read this last month!

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant—an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.
