The HEA Lover: Linda can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Linda: Well, I’ve been a cashier, a gas station attendant, a retail associate, a restaurant hostess, a college student, a Marketing Director for a realty company, but fulfilling my dream of being a published author blows all that away! I like rock-n-roll, Star Trek, and Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout beer. Oh, and I doodle dragons when I’m bored.
The HEA Lover: Describe a typical day of writing? Are you a planner or pantser?
Linda: There is a ritual to go through before I start…I brew a cup of decaf Kahlua Crème coffee, add …

ENEMIES DON’T NEED TO BE ALIVE TO BE DEADLY.
For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

They’ll never see her coming. . . .
When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.
Now she’s a …

Book Blurb:Meghan Chase used to be an ordinary girl…until she discovered that she is really a faery princess. After escaping from the clutches of the deadly Iron fey, Meghan must follow through on her promise to return to the equally dangerous Winter Court with her forbidden love, Prince Ash. But first, Meghan has one request: that they visit Puck–Meghan’s best friend and servant of her father, King Oberon–who was gravely injured defending Meghan from the Iron Fey. Yet Meghan and Ash’s detour does not go unnoticed. They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter–a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat….
My Thoughts:First, I have to disclaim that I have already read The Iron Daughter (Iron …
We are really happy and excited to have Julie Kagawa here with us today, author of the Iron Fey series, which includes The Iron King, Winter’s Passage (read my review of it later today), and the upcoming The Iron Daughter. I was lucky enough to have already read The Iron Daughter which is going to be released July 27th, so most of the questions center around that…
The YA Lover: In The Iron Daughter, Meghan grows from what I can only call a meek, timid, shy girl willing to “go with the flow” to a strong ray of light, blinding and ever present in her resolve, love and determination; did you mirror her after anyone in your life or is she perhaps a melting pot of amazing qualities those around you possess? JK: Meghan was actually the hardest character …

Melbourne, 1929. The year starts off for glamorous private investigator Phryne Fisher with a rather trying heat wave and more mysteries than you could prod a parasol at. Simultaneously investigating the apparent suicide death of a man on St Kilda beach and trying to find a lost, illegitimate child who could be heir to a wealthy old woman’s fortune, Phryne needs all her wits about her, particularly when she has to tangle with a group of thoroughly unpleasant Bright Young Things. But Phryne Fisher is a force of nature, and takes in her elegant stride what might make others quail, including ghosts, Kif smokers, the threat of human …

Demon Blood (The Guardians #6) by Meljean BrookGenre: PNR
Long before she was transformed into a Guardian and trained to fight demons, Rosalia knew darkness all too well. Raised by a demon, Rosalia learned to guard her heart–and her soul–until she found a man worthy of her love. Once, she thought that man would be the powerful vampire, Deacon…until he betrayed the Guardians. After losing everything to the lies of a demon, Deacon lives only for revenge–and is taken aback when Rosalia offers to help. A vampire who has nothing–who is nothing–isn’t worthy of her attention. But Rosalia wants to do more than just look, and the explosive need between them can’t be held in check. And when Deacon’s vengeful quest creates a dangerous alliance of their enemies, she will be his only hope…
