About: Immortality bites- new from the author of Accidentally Dead and The Accidental Werewolf. Wanda Schwartz is raking in the dough selling Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics-and she’s a pro at recruiting new saleswomen. So, she’s shocked when a man comes to one of her in-home parties-a very hot man. Heath Jefferson is sure to put some extra spin into a lot of women’s color wheels. When Wanda is diagnosed with a terminal illness, it doesn’t have to be a death sentence. With a werewolf and a vampire for best friends, she has options that most ordinary people wouldn’t. As Wanda ponders what to do about her mortality, Heath reveals he has secrets, and one of them is that his former bloodlust has turned into an old-fashioned lust-for Wanda. And he’s already given up too much to lose the love of his lifetimes. What I Loved:  Almost everything about this book.  It made me laugh, cry, and want to tag along for the ride.  Wanda grew so much during this book that it was hard not to love her!  There is one scene between Wanda, Nina, and Marty that had me bawling like a baby. Dang you Dakota Cassidy! What I Liked:  I […]

I *heart* Romance! (Why I am going to RomCon)

I have always loved romance novels.  Historical and Paranormal are my favorites but I have also read Chick-Lit and Contemporary novels too.  I remember reading every single romance novel I could get my hands on as a teenager.  It was such a great escape and it let me travel to places that I never thought I would see.  The men were fantastic, the women were strong, and the evil villain always got it in the end.  It is and was a formula that I adore.  I want my hero and heroin to live Happily Ever After!  What can I say?  I want to believe it can happen! How could you resist the men on the covers?  I know some people think they are cheesy but I am just not one of those people.  I honestly miss the covers with the really cute guys on them.  Too many are going with the girl on front and while I understand, it still makes me wish for the older days (and yes I am old enough to say that LOL). So this weekend I will be celebrating the first genre that made me fall in love with reading.  I will enjoy every minute […]

About:  A vampire puts the bite on a dental assistant. It’s a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman when a patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. But for real drama she can’t beat the next evening. Nina wakes up with a set of razor-sharp fangs, bionic vision, supersonic hearing, and a taste for blood. But there’s a good explanation: It’s her patient, Long Island vampire Greg Statleon. Actually they’re perfect for each other—if Nina’s willing to commit to one man for eternity. What I Loved: Nina, Nina, Nina!  She is my favorite foul-mouthed, say it like it is character.  She really is someone who just doesn’t accept something till you whack her over the head with facts.  Normally these characters get on my nerves but Nina is so well written that about the time you get to the “ugh shut up” point, she grows on you.  Oh and I love Greg too!  He was the perfect HEA for her 🙂 What I Liked: Wanda, Marty, Lou, and Svetlanna!  What can I say, I think it is the friendship, family, and love that really gel these books together.  You can just tell […]

Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has “the memory”, the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he’s previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.Interwoven through Sophia and Daniel’s unfolding present day relationship are glimpses of their expansive history together. From 552 Asia Minor to 1918 England and 1972 Virginia, the two souls share a long and sometimes torturous path of seeking each other time and time again. But just when young Sophia (now “Lucy” in the present) finally begins to awaken to the secret of their shared past, to understand the true reason for the strength of their attraction, the mysterious force […]
