My Wishlist: the Absolutely-Must-Have-Now Edition


Hey Everyone!

I’m here today to share with you some books which literally make me itch and bounce with impatience. I want them. Now.

You know that kind of excitement which makes you jittery and snappy because you start acting like an impatient 5 year-old who doesn’t get his/her ice cream immediately.

So it’s a good thing I only have to survive a couple more weeks before I can get my paws on them.

So let me show you some of those new releases which have me in such a state 🙂

Book Blurb:

Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact.

He’s far too beautiful to be a monster. Her attraction to him and his lack of violence has her walking a fine line on the edge of sanity.

My Thoughts:

Comfort Food was a powerful read, but it didn’t truly touch me in the ways I was expecting.

Emily is a captive of a …

Romance and Me: Is There Such a Thing as Too Much Sex in a Romance Novel?

Hey Everyone!

 

When talking/thinking about romance novels the topic of sex is bound to come up. Everyone has their own preference: whether they like it sweet and PG, or sensual and steamy, and some even don’t mind it being graphic, but everyone has their stand on the issue.As you well know Susi and I, we both want our romance novels to have some sweet smex, but recently I read a novel which made me wonder whether there is such a thing as too much sex…

You see this novel was marketed and shelved as a contemporary romance novel and I jumped in expecting a sexy romantic read, but instead got something else.Once again let me say not only I don’t mind reading sex scenes in my romance novels, to the contrary I enjoy and cherish them, but when I was reading this novel, I noticed that after a steamy scene there was no out-of-the-bedroom scene …

Explore This! Vail, Colorado

 Today, our travel inspiration comes from my reading of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. In the book, Calla and her wolf pack are in the Vail, Colorado area, with a new pack about to be created further up into the mountains.

And that’s basically what I think of, too. Mountains, snow, skiing, and drinking hot cocoa by a fireplace. In fact, it’s hard to think of this region without the accompanying snow….but there are the warmer months, when the wilder, greener side emerges. I’m personally not much for skiing, but would be more than happy to taken in the stunning views along with that fireplace scene.



Let’s pretend this is me. I’ve tried skiing but usually do it from more 
of a sitting position 😀
