Back Cover Text:
October “Toby” Daye is a changeling, the daughter of Amandine of the fae and a mortal man. Like her mother, she is gifted in blood magic, able to read what has happened to a person through a mere taste of blood.

Geekdom of Books: Bookshelves

The Equation Bookshelf is designed by Marcos Breder and is one of the most stylish geeky things I’ve ever seen. It plays with the mathematical methods of separation and organizes your books with them. You can put the important stuff in the (parentheses) or just sort them in your own system in the [square brackets] and {braces}. I found this one at Designspotter.

And OMG take a look at this one. I so adore it. It’s so funny. I just need a flat-panel TV. LOL But back to the bookshelf:
The Puckman bookcase is made of shining varnished wood. The Colour is yellow to remind you of the famous character of the 80’s classic video-game “Pac-Man”.

Unfortunately it has no prize. You have to request that and I think that is warning enough for my credit card. I found this here and you can visit the website of the designer …

Beyond The Highland Mist
Book 1 in the “Highlander” Series
By: Karen Moning


He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart—until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistibly challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm’s length—but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.


She had a perfect “no” on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite in her. Not even the …

Are enhanced versions of e-books the next best thing or a passing fad? 

I am not a huge fan of eBooks in general, but the convenience of them sometimes gets to me and I will download one or a…few. I own a Sony eReader, but hardly ever use it. Just yesterday though, I downloaded a book onto my iPod Touch…because the book was free that way. I guess my point is that for me it comes down to how convenient is it or how much effort is it? I prefer books I can hold in my hand, flip …

Blood Vice and the Sexy Lover’s Wishlist Winners!

Please accept our apologies for the delay in announcing the winners for the Keith Melton, Blood Vice Giveaway and for Veronica’s (The Sexy Lover) Wishlist Giveaway. We have a good excuse…our RSS feed was down and we weren’t receiving responses from winners because they weren’t receiving the posts telling them they had won. We didn’t realize the RSS feed wasn’t working and ended up drawing new winner, then lo and behold we find out that the RSS isn’t working. So we held off on announcing these winners until the issue could be resolved. Which it was last night! Woo-Hoo!!!

Now that we know the winners will find out they have won, it’s time to tell them who they are!

The winner of Blood Vice by Keith Melton (E-Book) is Joder!!!

Interview: Author, Shannon Baker with Giveaway!

Today, we are excited to have debut novelist, Shannon Baker here to discuss her mystery/thriller, Ashes of the Red Heifer. She is also generously offering one copy of the book as a giveaway to one of our readers!

As soon as I heard this book was coming out I contacted the author and said “I need to read this book and would love the opportunity to review it!” A few months later I had the book in my hand and although I am only about halfway through it I can honestly say that it was worth the wait. Within the first few pages the action and mystery start and so far haven’t stopped – the pacing is ideal for the content. Larissa (The Crazy Book Lover) and I will be doing a duel-review/discussion of Ashes of the Red Heifer …

All YA Love: Interview with Debut Author, Mara Purnhagen

Today, I’m excited to share with you an interview with Mara Purnhagen, author of Tagged. Her debut novel is set for release next week on March 1st through Harlequin, be sure to check it out!

BLI: Graffiti is not a common topic seen in books, where did the idea for this book come from?

Mara: When I wrote Tagged in 2007, I had just discovered the work of Banksy, a British graffiti artist. I highly recommend checking out his web site as well as his book, Wall and Piece.

BLI: I love the colorful cover! It shows graffiti with 2 ‘normal’ kids just hanging out yet when I think of graffiti, rough looking kids come to mind. What does this tell us about the book?

Mara: Thanks! I love the colors, too, and I hope the cover conveys that the main characters are very average kids.

BLI: Gorilla’s are found spray painted around …
