Bookish Rants or Raves: My First Book Conference!


When I first started book blogging at the end of last year, I never thought I would have gotten as far as actually going overseas to attend a book conference.

Well, here I am, a Brazilian staying at a friend’s house in Upstate New York fresh out of the Authors After Dark Romance Unlimited Conference.

One of the first people I met online was author Stella Price. We became online buddies and she started talking about this conference she was organizing and right away my ears perked up and I felt like this was something I’d love to go to.

At the time I was living in Israel, but I had already started making plans. By April I had moved back to Brazil, but the plans kept on building and as fate would have it, it all turned out great.

Going to The …

All YA Love: I was a YA sceptic…but not anymore

Hey Everyone!

Not only should you be surprised that I am doing a YA post now, but that I will be advocating YA novels! Yes, me, who was admitting everywhere, high and low that Twilight must have been the last YA novel I have read as I’m not a big fan of teenage literature. And guess what? Seems I was proven wrong! I know, sounds pretty shocking, so hear me out.

I don’t/didn’t like YA books because I was irritated by all the teenage drama, the constant whining and drama queen antics, that every little problem means the end of the world and the lack of maturity and intelligence in the characters not only frustrated, but angered me. But recently, despite my misgivings I have read a few YA novels and believe me, I was the most shocked to discover that I loved them!

So it seems my prejudiced days against YA novels are …

New Releases: October 4 – 10, 2010

Undertow by Moira Rogers

Victor left behind a life of crime to focus on a new vision–helping his alpha build an island sanctuary for werewolves. Harsh experiences prepared him for the hardships involved, except when it comes to dealing with the young female refugees of the brutal Boston pack–especially Simone, who rouses his inner wolf like no other. A woman he must resist, or risk becoming just the latest man to make demands on her.

Born to wealth and privilege, Simone lost everything when she fell for the seductive whispers of the textile heir who turned her. Once adrift, now she is fired by a new sense of purpose–the chance to broker peace between werewolves and European wizards. Yet even as Europe beckons, her instincts–the same ones that led to trouble before–keep drawing her back to Victor.

During a sailing …

Explore This! Harrisburg, Pennsylvania


This week, we travel back to the United States to visit Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Harrisburg is the capital city of the state and lies on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Other claims to fame for the city include it playing large roles in the American Civil War and the Industrial Revolution. It is also only 10 miles away from Hershey, Pennsylvania, home of the chocolate makers…..yum!

How does it relate to books? Well, it’s a frequent haunt for the characters in Megan Hart’s novels, which I’m sure alot of you are aware of. I wasn’t, until The Geeky Lover suggested it. Now, I’ve started reading Megan Hart’s Dirty in an attempt to get some background information I will admit being disappointed to discover that The Slaughtered Lamb is not an actual pub in Harrisburg, though I found one in …

Guest Post by Author Courtney Milan + Giveaway


Today, I’m very happy to welcome Courtney Milan on Book Lovers Inc. Courtney is the author of fascinating historical romances, her latest book Trial By Desire was released in September. It was a 5 Stars read for me (my review here). Let’s give a warm welcome to Courtney who will be telling us everything  about HEAs.
If I were to pick a single defining characteristic for my books, I would say they’re emotionally serious mixed with a healthy dose of funny. (Which tells you that I’m a total cheater; that’s TWO defining characteristics, not one.)

For my first book, the funny was easy to find–my heroine told fortunes, and my hero was a scientist, and in the clash between right and wrong lent itself to some inherently amusing situations. In the case of Trial by Desire, the serious was …

Kiss of Midnight

By: Lara Adrian

INSATIABLE DESIRE. ENDLESS SEDUCTION. ONE TOUCH IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night–or this man–is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed–a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind–and the unwitting humans existing alongside them–from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle …
