****SYNOPSIS**** When Vampires Go On Vacation . . .
Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men—a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you.

Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess . . .
Christian Notte has well known the power of finding a life mate. He's seen enough of his Argeneau relatives taken down for the count, but he never imagined he'd let himself fall in love—until he meets the enthralling, charmingly skittish, and oh-so-mortal Carolyn. But how will he reveal wha…

Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.
Until, that is, she receives a summons from Alexandria that cannot be ignored. With husband, child, and Tunstells in tow, Alexia boards a steamer to cross the Mediterranean. But Egypt may hold more mysteries than even the indomitable Lady Maccon can handle. What does the vampire Queen of the Alexandria Hive really want from her? Why is the God-Breaker …

****SYNOPSIS****
The most important tip to dating on social networks is to avoid making the mistake of “liking” you own status.

Because when you "like" your own Facebook status it's like when you're having sex and you slap your own ass.
---
A lot of girls like a guy who is a bad-ass. That’s why my conversations with women go like this:

GIRL: I like a man of danger.

ME: Come back to my place and we'll open the .exe attachments in my email!
---
Dear Shirtless Guy in his Profile Picture, you REALLY want to impress girls? Get a job and pose in front of your cubicle.
---
Dear Guy at the Dance Club, Please stop grinding random girls from behind like you are some kind of creepy penis-shaped bulldozer.

They say you can get a girl to like you, if you can make her jealous. So I make sure the girl sees me with a pretty expensive h…

FROM MTV'S HOLLYWOOD CRUSH...

YA Blockbuster 'Obsidian' Is Off To The Movies

Posted 41 mins ago by Kat Rosenfield in Movie News, Movies, Page Turners


If you're wondering where to find the next big thing in supernatural romance, here's a little tidbit of news that ought to pique your interest: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Armentrout's "Lux" series is off to Hollywood! Sierra Pictures has picked up the option on the majorly best-selling saga.

When she finds herself without a place to live, what else can possibly go wrong?

Or is it time for something to go right?




ABOUT THE AUTHOR Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish. She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below. Sensationalist spin?
She dabbles in photography so she can show some of the things she’s seen. Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world. Ocean’s Gift is her first novel, in a series of the same name. This blog was created to provide some of the…

****SYNOPSIS**** A favor for Jason, vampire hunter Anita Blake's werewolf lover, puts her in the center of a fullblown scandal that threatens master-vampire Jean- Claude's reign, and makes her a pawn in an ancient vampire queen's new rise to power.
*****MY REVIEW***** I liked this book, I like it when Anita gets of of St. Louis. I liked it that Jason was one of the main characters of this book. I also liked it that while there was still lots of sex in this book, there didn't seem to be as much as the few previous books from when the ardouer(sp) started. I'm wondering what's going on with Richard and the ardouer(sp), is that going to remove some of it from Anita? I'm quite intrigue with all the metaphysical stuff, and i'm quite intrigued on if Anita will ever fully shapeshift, would be interesting to see. I'm …

NEVERMIND!!!

OK I had said earlier that I was moving over to Wordpress, well I'm not! lol and here's why.  Blogger may have it's faults because of how Google views things, but Blogger is more user friendly... you can customize it without paying a yearly subscription. I know people love wordpress, and there are something I like about Wordpress, but i'm a person who likes to show their individuality and I cannot afford the yearly fee, for a WordPress Blog... however if Google does ever decide to close my blog down for whatever reason, though I am not violating TOS in any manner, then I do have my WP blog as a back up.

Wordpress Link

Here's my new blog... it's not much as of yet, it will take some time to get things fully back up. But my posts are there and pasts posts.... so Please stop on by and refollow me if you choose especially those who are on GFC. Hope to see yall there soon.

We're Moving!!!!

Ok, I am making the switch from Blogger to Wordpress. While Blogger may be easier to use and more user friendly they have become, a hindrance in their rules, and I keep hearing about  Blogs being shut down for spam cause they post their posts on Google+ and if you have yours set to Mature Audience, you could be in TOS violation for porn... I put my blog as the Mature preference because well, i'm an adult and while I will encourage children to read, and read alot. I don't want to have to censor things I say, or put on my blog that is not appropriate for children. Not because I'm advertising porn.  So therefore, I'm making the switch! I don't want to stay here and e in risk of losing my blog because I posted something on Google+ or because a book cover maybe to risque for Googles tastes.


I will make up another post for the new blog and will keep this one up for a week after I get my Wordpress one completed and running so my followers can switch over.

Thank you to all…

NIGHT VEIL
BY: Yasmine Galenorn
SERIES:Indigo Court #2
GENRE:Urban Fantasy
PUBLICATION:July 5th 2011 by Berkley (first published 2011)
AVERAGE RATING:4.08






****SYNOPSIS**** Cicely Waters had always through she was simply one of the magic-born-a witch who can control the wind-but recently she discovered she's also one of the shifting Fae. Now she must perfect her gift. Because Cicely and her friends may have escaped from Myst and her Shadow Hunters, but Myst has managed to capture the Fae Prince who holds Cicely's heart.
*****MY REVIEW***** Night Veil was a key book in the Indigo Court series. It sets you up for what's going to happen in the rest of the series. Alliances and enemies have been made. Families are torn apart while some are reunited. This book is definitely interesting to read, and it has captured my attention. If you are looking for something with a little bit of everything, and different, then the Indigo Court Series is a definite must read.
