If you want a little adventure in your romance, then this series is for you! Let’s give a warm welcome to Zoe here!
The HEA Lover: Zoe can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Zoe: Ever since I learned how to read, I wanted to write. I went through different permutations as I got older, including wanting to become an illustrator a costume designer, and an academic, but writing always had my heart. In fact, I started a PhD program in 18th century literature, but left with an MA in order to get an MFA in Fiction. A friend of mine in …
Book Blurb:To the Yaguara, an ancient jaguar shape-shifting people living deep in the Amazon jungle, nothing matters more than strength. Iada is their champion; genetically pure, she has been trained since birth to fight. Her destiny is to become the next Queen of the Yaguara by winning the tournament of succession-a battle to the death. Her opponent is Gabriel, a half-blooded outcast whose mother was human. To everyone’s shock, he defeats Iada but does not strike the death blow-instead, he extends mercy, thereby claiming her as his mate. Despite their enmity, the attraction between them is powerful, and soon they are mates in more than name only. Their mutual distrust serves only to fuel …

The HEA Lover: Susanna can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Susanna: I was born in Atlanta, but raised in the rural south in “the states.” When I attended college, I returned to Atlanta and have been here ever since. For a several years I drifted about in corporate jobs doing Multimedia and web development. …
Amanda is on vacation and I took advantage of her absence to usurp her weekly spot to tell you about my YA Wishlist! ;-p I seldom read YA (the last YA novel I read was probably Twilight), but somehow September is full of YA releases I can’t wait to get my hands on! So if you love YA I bet you have already marked these releases on your calendar, but even if you are like me and don’t read that many YA novels, these are still worth checking out.
Release date: 14 September 2010

End of problem.
Or is it? In Midcity, a dashing police chief is fighting a unique breed of …
Warrior (The Blades of The Rose #1) by Zoe Archer
To most people, the realm of magic is the stuff of nursery rhymes and dusty libraries. But for Capt. Gabriel Huntley, it’s become quite real and quite dangerous…
IN HOT PURSUIT… The vicious attack Capt. Gabriel Huntley witnesses in a dark alley sparks a chain of events that will take him to the ends of the Earth and beyond—where what is real and what is imagined become terribly confused. And frankly, Huntley couldn’t be more pleased. Intrigue, danger, and a beautiful woman in distress—just what he needs.
IN HOTTER WATER… Raised thousands of miles from England, Thalia Burgess is no typical Victorian lady. A good thing, because a proper lady would have no hope of recovering the priceless magical artifact Thalia is after. Huntley’s assistance might come in handy, though …

He can save her planet, but only if she saves him first.
Cabrielle is glad her father never lived to see his defraction technology in the hands of the rebels. Now the only hope for her planet’s survival is Torr, the Zentarin who’s training Cortierra’s pilots.
Except Torr is suffering from an untimely case of lust fever—two years ahead of schedule. He must return home to mate with a Zentarin female, or die… Unless by some miracle a Cortierran female exists who might satisfy him.
Sleeping with the hunky offworlder isn’t exactly the way Cabbie planned to redeem the family name, but she’ll do anything to defend her home. Even use her body rather …
This week, I’m whisking you all off to Avebury, which looks very much like it’s in the heart of farming country in England. It is, in fact, only 32 kilometres away from the more famous stone circle, Stonehenge, though Avebury appears to be older (I got this information from the Wiki entry that I’ve linked below). What I also discovered while looking into Avebury is that there are solstice festivals celebrated there and it seems to still have ties to the old philosophies of witchcraft or pagan religions. For me, this is very cool. I went a little bit geeky researcher on this one because Stonehenge has always been on the top of my “places to visit” list, since reading a Hardy Boys mystery that featured these standing stones. It’s my current read of The Guardian of the Gate by Michelle …
