Cover Whore Reveal:


Here it is peeps, K.A. Tucker's 3rd Casual Enchantments cover!!

Evangeline finally got what she longed for—the cursed pendant off her neck and Caden in her arms—only it came at a steep price. An unknown poison now courses through her body, slowly morphing her into something no one but the Fates can foresee. She has her suspicions, though...and if she is right, it will spell certain ruin for her and Caden. But she won’t last long enough to realize that, if Viggo and Mortimer uncover the treasonous secrets she keeps from them– that Veronique, no longer entombed, is now in the torturous clutches of the witches and the People’s Sentinel, or that she is protecting a Sentinel within their very midst. Always the naive human caught in the vampires’ web of deceit, Evangeline is now weaving her own dangerous web so she can keep her friend alive, rescue Veronique, and stop a seemingly inevitable war from erupting. But can her honor handle the depths of duplicity to which she must descend, in order to be in league with the vampires? Dark and gripping, riddled with angst, Allegiance will have readers anxiously turning pages to find out if Evangeline can survive, or if she’ll spiral into disaster.

Isn't it GORGEOUS!?

For me, I love it! Plus is goes along with rest of the covers in the series, SEE:

Review: Pack of Lies - By

Author: Sara Dailey & Staci Weber


Release Date: 4/8/2012

Purchase Info: Boroughs Publishing

The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams. Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago. Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate

 First Thought: Were's are FRECKIN' HOTT

From the beginning I could tell that I would really enjoy this book, I mean the opening scene is the principal breaking up a chick fight between our main character Allison & some bimbo. Initially I liked Allison, or Al as everyone seems to call her, simply because she is blunt and up front. Why is she getting into all these fights at school, why does every boy within a 20 foot radius feel the need to undress her with their eyes? She doesn’t know, but she makes it known that it’s pissing her off just as much as the guideance counselor at school. 

                So in the wake of all these weird instances her mom drops a BOMB SHELL, “Oh BTW Al, you and your brother Aiden are werewolves…..AND we’re moving back to my hometown to become part of my pack again”……..seriously…yeah she threw it on them pretty quick. Not only does Allison have to take all of this in, but being in a completely new town has new kids, new boys, new rules. 

                This is where you meet Kendall, she gives the literal meaning to the word bitch. With hatred  oozing from her pores, and stick-up radiating from her entire body, Al knows that this chick is bad news.  Kendall is one of those characters that you’re just hoping will get dismembered in a freak car accident, or will at least burn her face with her straight iron. *Yes I have some hatred going on*

                Ok, back on track…..Kendall’s a bitch, Al knows to stay away from her, and then there’s Cade. EPIC swoon! Alpha in training, hotness on a stick, and Kendall’s boyfriend <------ BOO

                Now you can guess where this all went?? The ever nail biting, l-o-v-e triangle. 

Cade: “Hmmmm, who do I pick?”

Beautiful, strong, loving female?       
   Chick who’s only concern is her status & color of her lip gloss?

Seems like a pretty easy choice, but this aren’t always as they seem.

Now for my all around thoughts on this book. I really enjoyed it, I haven’t read a good Were book in a while, so it was a really nice change of pace. For me there were just a few spots that I felt could have been developed just a tad, or maybe the emotional aspect of it needed to be matured slightly.  Aside from that little note the authors did a great job with truly bringing out the unique qualities in each person.  They also left a fabulously placed twist at the end of the book, so of course I will be picking up book #2, so I can see how this plays out.

Character Interview & Giveaway: See - By Jamie Magee

Hi peeps!

I get the extreme honor of interviewing  Draven, from Jamie Magee's new series, SEE!

Let's start out easy, since there is a lot of astrological signs mentioned in See, and you're a Taurus, if you could pick to be any other sign what would it be?
*He smiles boyishly, blushing slightly, before he gently clears his throat.* Well, I’ll admit that I do not know as much about the Zodiac as my Scorpio friend Madison does. *He furrows his eyebrows*...I’m not even entirely sure that I believe that this entire world can be classified into 12 signs, groups of people. The fact that I’m a twin, that me and my brother are both Taurus, yet I have a harder time controlling my temper, that my voice is stronger than his is a testimony of that. *His emerald green eyes laced in black glance around the room searching for a clear answer.* I guess...I guess if I could be like anyone else it would be Charlie, her sign is a Libra, and from what I gather about the traits of the people born under that sign is that they have balance, they see both sides to every argument, every situation. I would want to see the world that way, to not be angry when I hear an evil echo around me, to ask why, to find understanding, then finally a resolution - the way Charlie does.....if it wasn't for her, for the way she sees the world.....I’m sure we would have all considered ourselves insane at this point....cursed by the devil himself.
Being an artist, what sparks your creativity the most?
*His grin widens, enhancing every captivating feature of his addictive image, just as he leans back and begins to move his fingers across his knee as if he’s playing a mass of chords on his guitar.* All art, whether its music, painting, writing, sculpting - anything created from the soul does one thing. *He hesitates as his eyes drift to the place his mind goes when he writes his music.* It gently embraces emotion, something that in reality cannot be seen, touched, heard - something that none of our senses can grasp. In that embrace the artist molds their work into their expression, their interpretation of that emotion, and when it is complete the emotion is not imprisoned in that’s defined. Others can hear it, see it, read it and feel what the artist felt, and when they do that, they relate that emotion to something in their life. They understand that they are not alone, that every soul faces emotions that can either rip you into, or lift you to the heavens. As an artist I find inspiration by just breathing. I find it on a long drive, flight, I find it when I’m with my friends, I find it when I’m thinking of the girl I can’t seem to live without, I find it when I fight my demons. What I do create, the sound, the lyrics, can never truly express how deep my emotions run, opens the door for others, just enough for them to take what is going on in their life and relate, then find the courage to embraced every emotion, both good and bad.
Knowing how your love life turned out, who would you want to pair your brother with?
*He quietly laughs under his breath at the thought of his brother falling in love.* Well, I think what I’ve been through, the roller-coaster of emotions as terrified him. *His eyes grow serious as his smile fades slightly.* I kinda feel bad for Madison and Aden....being who we are, able to do what we can do is hard to deal with, even if you know you have family and friends that are dealing with the same can’t just let anyone in, date the way people our age do...its dangerous for them, and you, because you don’t want to lose your balance with what your enduring, and you don’t want to put anyone in danger....then there is the fear that the person you fall for may have you committed once you tell them what you can do.... *He grins slightly as a random thought crosses his mind.* Even though we are twins we are like night and day. Aden is a complicated, yet simple person. He expresses his passion for music in countless ways, he can play at least five instruments at a level that would turn anyone's head....but when he plays the drums he comes alive. All his anger, frustration, even his rhythm with life comes out. When he’s not playing, his nose is in a book, usually a philosophy book, Joseph Campbell, and Carl Jung are his heroes....he thinks deeply, and wants to understand life at its core. Whoever he ends up with would have to be someone who sees music as a life form, the way he does, someone who thinks for themselves, the way he does, someone that can give him the freedom to be who he is - someone that he can hold when the darkest moments are over.....he says he’s ready to leave with Austin, our friend from Chara, because he wants peace for all of us, but I know him....I know he’s wondering that if somewhere out there, there is a girl that can understand and love him...someone that will not be afraid of who we are.
Name your top 3 things you love most about Charlie:
I don’t know how anyone cannot become addicted to Charlie. She is.....she is a doesn’t matter how dark it is, what is happening....she finds balance. She listens, she lets you express every raging emotion, then finds a way to help you see the victory that lies ahead. Her soul is full of passion....she was born with a divine gift in music....when she plays I swear I can see her soul, her warm energy fill the room. When she smiles at me I feel as if God himself is telling me that life, no matter how complicated it is, is a gift....I find myself staring into her dark eyes, wondering what mystery she is trying to unravel, where her heart is leading her. I’m not sure how clearly I answered your question, basically Love is not a strong enough word to express the way I feel when I’m around Charlie, there is not a sound I could play that would mock how powerful she makes me feel by just breathing...
Now, without giving anything away, how do you foresee your future going?
The first time I performed in front of a crowd that was larger than 100 or so people I was sixteen. My father let us open for one of the major bands he was producing. Even though I love music, playing, singing from my soul....I was terrified. In my mind I’d imagined everything from the sound to forgetting the chords going wrong. I was literally sick with the thought of stepping into that spotlight. My father sat me and Aden down the morning before that show. He told us that if we weren’t afraid of that night, then that meant that we didn’t want it bad enough, that embracing who you are, and expressing it with every part of your being was part of life. He said life was not always bliss, if it was, we would all be rather bored. He coached us through how not to see the crowd, but to be a part of it. To become the music, to flow with the aggressive sound, to act like we were born to do what we were doing.....he said when that when it was over, we would become addicted to the emotions we felt as the crowd roared, that all at once we would feel everything, and nothing at the same time, that even if the world ended that night, we would die smiling, accomplished, invincible. He was right....that night did not make me and my brother taught us how to live. In a way it prepared us for everything we have seen, witnessed, endured...playing live for that many people - facing all your fears just so you could show the world that you deserved to do what you loved, to prove that the pain that may come with your dreams was shallow in comparison to your passion. I will never forget that lesson. I hear him in my thoughts when I think of what lies ahead for myself and the ones I love. I know my heart will pound in my chest at times, that my hands may tremble, that adrenaline will become a drug for me, for all of us, but I also know that once we get through what’s before us, once we understand the purpose in our dark gifts that the world will see that there is not one soul that does not deserve forgiveness, a second chance. I won’t lie, I feel the same way I did before that first concert...I’m terrified, and furious that I don’t know what’s coming at us, or how to overcome it, but I know that one way or the other....I will not leave this world in the same way that I found it...none of us will.

Now in my eyes I envision Draven as looking like this:
