Weekend Book Club--The Unyielding by Shelly Laurenston

This past week I read THE UNYIELDING by Shelly Laurenston. This is the third book in her amazing Call of Crows series. She takes Norse mythology and makes it her own in this exciting, action-packed, and funny romance series. She is one of my absolute favorite paranormal authors.

If you love hot Vikings, kickass heroines, and paranormal romance, you must try this series.

The first two books are The Unleashing and the Undoing. I can't wait to see what she does next in this series.

The Unyielding
Book 3 in the Call of Crows series

Stieg Engstrom, Angriest Viking Ever, has got big problems. The human Viking Clans of earth are in danger of being obliterated—along with the rest of the world—and the only one who may be able to save them is a super pain-in-the-ass Crow. Most people annoy Stieg, but this is the one woman he really can’t stand…

Erin Amsel loves being a Crow! Why wouldn’t she when the other Viking Clans are so hilariously arrogant and humorless? She’s not about to let all that come to an end! She just didn’t expect to be shoulder to shoulder in battle with Stieg. Then again, he’s so easy to torment—and also kind of cute.

With the future of the world riding on them, Stieg knows he’ll have to put aside his desperate need to kiss the smirk right off Erin’s face. Wait. What? He didn’t mean that—did he? No! They have one goal: To conquer the idiots. Because nothing bugs Stieg more than when idiots win. If only he can keep himself from suddenly acting like one…

Drakon's Promise ON SALE

DRAKON'S PROMISE is on sale for a limited time for only 99-cents USD! If you haven't tried the first book in my new paranormal shapeshifter series, now is the time to grab it!

Night Owl Reviews gives it a Top Pick and says, "This is another winner from this author. I highly recommend this first book in this series."
Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.

He's both.

He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.

When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.

Beauty and the Beast – US Official Final Trailer

Saw Beauty and the Beast yesterday. LOVED IT! It was everything you'd want from a live action version of the story.

Have you seen it?

It's Officially Spring!

Happy Equinox!

Welcome to spring!

The calendar may say it's officially spring but it still looks and feels like winter outside. But there is now hope for warmer weather and the first flowers of spring.

Weekend Book Club--Echoes in Death by J.D. Robb

I recently read ECHOES IN DEATH by J.D. Robb, the 44th book in the In Death series. It has it all--action, mystery, a kickass heroine and an incredible relationship between Eve and Roarke. This series just keeps getting better and better.


As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman―dazed, naked, and bloody―suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”...

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

The Dalakis Vampires are Back!

I am thrilled to announce that the Dalakis Passion vampire series is back, starting with Harker's Journey, the erotic novella that started it all.

This is a revised edition of a previous published book.

Harker's Journey
Dalakis Passion, Book 1

From the first moment Johanna Harker read Bram Stoker’s Dracula, her life changed forever. The book unleashed an obsession with vampires that was all the more compelling for the intensely erotic dreams that filled her nights. It wasn’t long before she was consumed with thoughts of the dark creature who returned to ravish her in her dreams again and again.

Abandoning any hope of finding a flesh-and-blood man who can fulfill her, Johanna resigns herself to pouring all her energies into her demanding job by day and her enthralling fantasies by night. But when her job takes her to the fabled Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania to meet her company’s largest client, she’s suddenly overcome by the thrilling sensual promise of the secretive and demanding Cristofor Dalakis, the very man who’s been haunting her dreams.

But Cristofor, the enigmatic and formidable patriarch of the Dalakis family, is harboring a dark family secret and makes it clear he will use his every skill to seduce and possess Johanna. And as Johanna realizes that her every fantasy may come true, she also makes the haunting discovery that it may come at a terrible price.

Weekend Book Club--Brighter Than the Sun by Maya Banks

I love the KGI (Kelly Group International) series by Maya Banks. This week I read BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN, book 11 of the series. It's everything you'd expect and love in a KGI book--action, suspense and, of course, romance. This is one series I can read again and again.


The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering.
Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t...

As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he’s assigned to, but when it comes to love, he’ll keep his distance. He’s content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated. 

Zoe’s had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she’s determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend, Rusty Kelly. But it’s the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again. And Joe will have to put everything on the line to save Zoe, when secrets of her past resurface—and threaten to tear them apart…

What are you reading this week?

Weekend Book Club--Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

This past week, I read DEVIL IN SPRING, the third book in The Ravenels series, by Lisa Kleypas.

I loved it.

The first two books are Cold-Hearted Rake and Marrying Winterborne. Honestly, Marrying Winterborne was one of the best, if not the best, historical romance I read last year.

If you love historical romances that are a bit different from the rest, try this series.


An eccentric wallflower  . . .

Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

A cynical rake  . . .

After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.

A perilous plot  . . .

After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven .
