For the five sexy rock gods of Sole Regret, finding love is easy, keeping it is hard.

Melanie has no desire to meet the members of the rock band, Sole Regret, but her groupie of a best friend gets them both backstage and then rushes off with the band’s lead singer. Left alone at an after party with a bunch of scary tattooed and pierced metal-heads, sheltered Melanie is relieved when the only normal-looking guy in the room insists on keeping her company.

By the time Melanie discovers that Gabe is the band’s drummer and not as normal as she assumed, she has already made a complete fool of herself. …

Bookish Rant or Raves: These books that pushed you out of your comfort zone

I admit, I rarely read books that would push me out of my comfort zone.  Well to be honest I even use guinea-pigs (Sweet Susi and Christine *g*) to read the books I’m too chicken to try first.  Then they tell me if I can safely read them. I think Susi even considered using a ‘Safe-For-Caro’ tag on Goodreads. Heh!

I’ve seen a LOT of reviews about books that left the readers broken and very disturbed.  The Siren by Tiffany Reisz for example  seems to leave most  readers in a state of shock and unease for weeks.  Megan Hart‘s books often have that effect on me, they haunt me for weeks and I still want more.

This week I discovered (thank to Mandy @ Smexy Books) a new series (serialized story) that pretty much rocked my world and really pushed my limits. Dark Soul  by Aleksandr Voinov is …

Guestpost:10 Reasons to Fall in Love with Ella Raines by Laura Kaye + Giveaway

Today we’re very happy to welcome Laura Kaye on Book Lovers Inc. Laura’s new Fantasy Romance, West Of Want came out earlier this month. This is the 2nd book in the Hearts of the Anemoi series.  Laura is here today to tell us all about her heroine Ella Raines.  Stay tuned and you could win a copy of the book. Let’s give a warm welcome to Laura!

I’m very excited to be celebrating the release of my new fantasy romance West of Want, the second book in my Greek-mythology-based Hearts of the Anemoi series! As much as I love the Greek gods in this series—their supernatural powers, the fraternal dynamics between them, their distinct hurts and wants and needs, their abs (look at that cover!)—I’ve really enjoyed writing the heroines, too. These women need to be equals to incredibly powerful, paranormal creatures. They need to be able to …

The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

Welcome back to  The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me? our bi-weekly cover discussion (<==criticizing-fest).

It’s been a while since we last take a look at what was coming out in Germany.  Susi found us quite a few gems to work with. So let’s remember it’s all just for fun and let the cover talk begin.*g*


 Caro: Honestly I hated the original cover for Shatter me but I really like the German cover. It’s simple but pretty. I like how her dress seems to melt into swirly things.  WAY better than the original.

Lara Adrian‘s cover is ‘nice’  but it’s the kind I would forget in 2 seconds. I like the sensual lips but otherwise it’s a it generic. All the covers in this series are made the same way, I know it’s to give the series the same look but in the end I just end up confusing them all.

The Frost cover just doesn’t …
