Review: Baby Maker by P Dangelico


May Contain Spoilers

After a trying week at work, I was looking for something light and funny to ease my stress levels. Baby Maker popped up on Netgalley, and though I originally thought it was NA (a romance category I try to avoid because I has such a hard time relating to the protagonists), I requested it anyway. The recently retired football player had me hooked, and after finishing Shot on Gold, I dove right into this story. I’m a sucker for athlete heroes.

Manga Review: The Royal Tutor V 1 & 2 by Higasa Akai @yenpress


May Contain Spoilers

I picked up this series because the first volume was three bucks on Amazon, and the cover is cute. I had no idea what The Royal Tutor was about, but after just a few pages of V1, I was charmed. This is an engaging slice of life manga about a passel of spoiled princes and their unlikely tutor.

Early Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole @avonbooks


May Contain Spoilers

I took one look at the cover for A Princess in Theory and I wanted to read it. Lusted after it, really.  I love the colors and the textures, but most especially I love look of adoration on the models’ faces.  I wish someone other than my dogs would look at me like that. Maybe Dean does when I suggest another trip to WDW, but those looks are few and far between (in fairness to him, I am SURE I am just not looking at him and therefore missing those gazes of pure adoration).

Win Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

Burn-Bright_Social-Image_v4

To celebrate the upcoming release of Burn Bright, I have a copy of Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs to give away, courtesy of the publisher. I am so excited for Burn Bright, and I’m super stoked to be able to give one of you a copy of the first book in the Alpha and Omega series. This is one of my favorite series, period, and if you haven’t started it yet, I highly recommend it.

Here’s some info for the giveaway:

Giveaway is for a mass market paperback, US addresses only.

About the book:

Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.
Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.
It is recommended you read the prequel “Alpha & Omega” before reading Cry Wolf.

This is to get you ready for Burn Bright, which releases March 6. I can hardly wait!

Here is the pre-order link for Burn Bright: Amazon

Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…
They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.
With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn..

Review & Excerpt: Shot on Gold by Jaci Burton @Berkleyromance


May Contain Spoilers

This is the first Play-by-Play novel that I’ve picked up, and I was interested in it because of the backdrop of the international games. Even I knew that the Winter Olympics were looming when I started reading this, and even though I haven’t watched much of the Games since I was in high school, I still remember with fondness sitting in the family room and cheering on the home team with the family (how we all saw the action on that little screen, I’ll never fully comprehend). Two of my favorite events are represented here – hockey and figure skating. What could go wrong?
