News & New Stuff

Now this is just plain unfair. It doesn't come out until the very end of June, but Christine Feehan already has the full trailer up for Safe Harbor. This is the Seven Sisters book I have been waiting for so eagerly. It's Hannah and Jonas' story. Jonas has been so mean to Hannah in all the other books I hope he gets his much deserved kick in the pants. Now, I have decided not to view the full trailer till closer to the time the book is due out. But, since Circle Of Seven did the trailer, I know it's gonna rock.

If you'd like to view the trailer, click on my link for Christine Feehan's website. I also have a link to Circle Of Seven's website, but I doubt they have the trailer up yet. They usually put up the trailers closer to the release dates for the books. I also just finished the audiobook version of Christine Feehan's Dark Legend. It was phenomonal. I purchased it directly from Books In Motion. I have a link to them as well.

And in other news, I found a totally awesome book publishing group. It's called Ellora's Cave. They publish romance books, novellas and ebooks in nearly every genre you can imagine. But I won't be putting up a link to them because they are definately not the kinds of books anyone under the age of 18 should be reading. Not only do they deal in some hardcore genres such as bondage, menage a trois's and gay and lesbianism, their descriptions of sex are much more direct and to the point than most other books. They describe sex and certain body parts like it is even using the more blunt terms.

But they have so many cool genre's and neat stories too. Fantasy, sci-fi-futuristic, paranormal, vampire, shapreshifters and twisted fairy tales to name a few. Now it's really hard to find a really good fantasy romance nowadays. Even Luna books, which is Harlequin's fantasy romance series doesn't go as far as it could. But these do. I just read an Ellora's Cave publishing called Captive Stallion by Kate Hill. It ROCKED! It's part of a series this particular author does about centaurs. I'll be getting more of these books as time goes on.

So, if you don't mind really hot yet blunt sex, I highly suggest checking out Ellora's Cave. And believe it or not, but some of your favorite romance authors also write more extreme romances for this publishing group. Authors like Cheyenne McCray, Shiloh Walker and Tielle St. Clare just to name a few.

Winter Reading Round-Up!

I know I know. I'm really late getting to the round-up for this past season and I apologize. I have been really sick lately and just haven't been up to it. But I'm feeling better and it's time to go over the best books I have read during the winter season. So here they are and in no particular order.

Hitting The Mark: This book by Jill Monroe is a laugh-riot. All the scheming and machinations that go on between the two main characters, especially Danni will leave you in stitches. I really enjoyed this book.

The Nymph King: Another hilarious read. This one, by Gena Showalter, is the next in her Atlantis series and is fantastic. Valerian is uber sexy and Shaye leads him, a man used to getting anyone he wants, a very merry chase. It was awesome.

Shadows Of Destiny: This is the final installment of Rachel Lee's Ilduin trilogy and it rocked. It totally lived up to its previous two books. I loved it and will re-read this series many times. It is exceptionally good.

Bite Me If You Can: This is the newest release in Lynsay Sands vampire series and is the best so far if you ask me. It's extremely funny. Lucien is a really neat guy with a bit of a complex in the bedroom. Trust me, this book totally rocks and I have already re-read it twice. I love it.

The entire Sookie Stackhouse series: This series, by Charlaine Harris is awesome. I had never read them before but my mom has and she had the whole series. I just got done reading them all and I love them. I am eagerly and impatiently waiting for the next one, All Together Dead, to be released in May. I can't wait.

Well that's my list for the winter series. I read many more but these were the absolute best. What's in your reading round-up?
