Five Things Never to do Aboard a Pirate Ship

Written by Pandora Wyatt from

TANGLED HEARTS by Heather McCollum

Hello! My name is Pandora or Dory (which I prefer as the latter refers to the infamous box). I was raised upon the pirate ship, Queen Siren, captained by my adopted father, Captain Bartholomew Wyatt. Before my mother died after giving birth to me aboard his ship, she pleaded with him not to take me back to England. Despite his roguish appearance, Captain Bart is a gentleman and was already in the habit of rescuing wee ones, so he honored her request.

Meet Willa from Compromising Willa by Diana Quincy and Giveaway!

This morning I have an interview with Lady Wilhelmina from Compromising Willa by Diana Quincy, as well as a few excerpts from the book and a giveaway for you to enter. Enjoy!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Lady Wilhelmina! Do you mind if I call you Willa? Can you describe yourself in five words or less.

[Willa] Good morning! It’s lovely to visit with you although I must confess I have no earthly idea what a Manga Maniac is! But, no matter, let’s have a cup of my special tea and I’ll happily answer your questions. Let’s see, five words to describe me? I’m a bit wary, I’m afraid, because I was badly used by a man I thought was a gentleman I could trust. Unfortunately, I was very wrong and my naiveté sort of ruined my reputation. I’m also curious because I’ve just come to London and there is so much to learn here. Now that I’ve decided to never marry, I’ll have plenty of time to explore everything the metropolis has to offer. Mother tells me I’m too intelligent for my own good, as if that’s possible. I’ve also been called stubborn and headstrong but, honestly, I don’t see it.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope?

Spotlight and Giveaway- A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey

Alyxandra Harvey’s latest release, A Breath of Frost, hit stores last week.  I loved the Drake Chronicles, so I’m geeked to give a copy away, thanks to Walker Books!

About the book:

In 1814, three cousins—Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope—discover their family lineage of witchcraft when a binding spell is broken, allowing their individual magical powers to manifest. Now, beyond the manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, an alluring underworld available only to those with power is revealed to the cousins. By claiming their power, the three cousins have accidentally opened the gates to the underworld. Now ghouls, hellhounds—and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters—are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders…because she keeps finding the bodies. Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed…or even worse, before their new gifts are stripped away?
