For Sophia Stevenson, there’s no going back to the life she knew. She never asked for the powers that make her a precious commodity to the secret society of Illuminists—and their archenemies.

Captain Bion Donkova would give anything to possess the powers that have fallen in Sophia’s lap. If only the beautiful, infuriating woman could stay out of trouble, he wouldn’t have to keep coming to her rescue…

Bion and Sophia have friction to spare—and nothing fuels a forbidden passion better than danger…

Bookish Rave: What Reader Species Are You?

Here at BLI, we often ask how one can differentiate between a Book Lover and mere Reader. It turns out we were thinking to small. Laura E. Kelley realized there is an entire taxonomy of Readers and Book Lovers out there, and set out to identify and distinguish each individual species.

As you do.

Today we acknowledge that our International Book Congress requires more than simple geographic and genre diversity to be fully representative of the needs of Book Lovers. We may need to bulk up our ranks. Diversity hires, if you will.

And so, without further ado we present The Linnaean Hierarchy of Readers.* (Seriously, we did not create this. It is amazing, but also requires a scientific devotion to detail and organization that we can only aspire towards.)

Take your time to properly classify yourself. The Book Lovers will self-identify below.

Jackie: I think I fit into a bunch of the …

Sunday Cravings

Hello Book Lovers! Anna’s not back yet, so I am doing my best to hold down the fort in her absence. Of course, I will be traveling for the next two weeks, so if I can’t find another Book Lover to fill in, we may be without Sunday Cravings for a bit.

But that isn’t anywhere near important as the fact that Winter Has Come to Alaska. I’m sure you are all rolling your eyes at me while wiping the dripping sweat off your collective brows – but it’s true. For the last few days, my car windows have been covered in frost in the morning. My roommate even turned her car on to heat it up before heading out today. WINTER IS HERE.

With that horrifying cheerful prospect to keep you all going, I present this week’s Sunday Cravings. It is, after all, important to stock up on your …

Interview with Macy Beckett + Giveaway

Today we are happy to have Macy Beckett, writer of the fun, sexy Sultry Springs series, visit us here at Book Lovers Inc.! Macy is stopping by to celebrate the release of the latest book in the series, Surrender to Sultry. So, let’s all give her a warm welcome! And remember to enter the giveaway at the end, too.

Macy: You bet—I’m thrilled to be here! In a nutshell, I’m a former teacher who left the classroom to write hot, humorous romantic comedies. Penning novels is a lot more fun than teaching grammar, so I never looked back.

Macy: I’m a hybrid, a plantser. I begin with a short synopsis, then I …

Book Blurb:

Crescent City, 1934

In Crescent City, the dead are always close.

At the point of death, people can choose to become Ghosts, tethered to the living. They can remain with their loved ones as invisible companions—or in the case of Crescent City’s ghostly mayor, remain in office forever.

Being a P.I. in Crescent City isn’t easy or glamorous. Luckily Lola Starke has an edge: her Ghost, Aubrey, who can gather valuable clues from other Ghosts in the Ether. When they accept a simple missing-persons case, they’re drawn into a complicated web of lies and double-crosses that involves the most …

Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect: The Potterverse

Time again for more Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect! Where Book Lovers from across the world stand in solidarity for the supporting cast. Those individuals that make the story and keep us coming back even when the protagonist needs a good smack (cough Harry Potter cough). Hear our anthem! Because everyone deserves top billing now and then.

As I just-so-happened to mention, certain protagonists tend to be extremely smackable, and all-around unlikeable. Which is exactly why we’re diving back into The Potterverse. Because really, who read Harry Potter for, well, Harry Potter? Nobody, that’s who.

Marlene: Have you started drinking early? Do you really want to dive into the Potterverse sober? I can, but it’s painful. Really. Let me start.

Jackie: Go ahead. That was too long ago for specifics for me.

Marlene: The butcher’s bill at the last battle was much too high. To begin with. …

Book Description:

Sometimes love is an accident.

This time, it’s a strategy.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly–so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don’t get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

But that is precisely what she gets.

Because Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont, is not fooled. When Minnie figures out what he’s up to, he realizes there is more to than her spectacles and her quiet ways. And he’s determined to lay her every secret bare before …

Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it’s her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her “typical” day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame who sneaked out of her bed two years ago, taking her heart and a handful of classified documents with him.

As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive—and still irresistibly attractive. Though her …
