Choosing Evil by Kristina Rienzi! + giftcard giveaway

Morning guys! We've got a little spotlight for Choosing Evil today. Kristina is such a sweetie and this is her debut release. Yall check out a little about the book below and the giveaway down at the bottom. Kristina is giving away some fab things!

Tall, Dark and Royal (The Renegade Royals #2.5) by Vanessa Kelly

Magnificent and stubborn. Fourteen years apart had not changed Chloe Steele, or Dominic’s love for her. He’d been a street urchin, a boy raised at court, and finally a magistrate, yet he’d never belonged anywhere—except by her side. Now Chloe devoted herself to girls threatened by scandal—like she had been. But she was in danger, and Dominic was determined to help—and hopefully make up for lost time…

Even in childhood, Dominic had made Chloe feel safe. Now she also felt thrillingly flustered by the powerful man he’d become, and by the longing he inspired. Because Dominic meant not only to protect her, but to untangle the lies that had separated them. Yet for Chloe, surrendering to temptation may be easier than risking a future that could ruin them both…

Type: Historical Romance, Novella
Heat: 3 out of 5--limited
Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Tall, Dark and Royal was one of those lovely little in-between reads when you just need an extra taste of a series while you wait for the next full length story. Fabulous characters, sweet romance, a tiny touch of danger...yups good times though one I think will be easier for those who have read the rest of the series.

Book Deals---New Releases, 99cent sales & Freebies!

So. We're trying something a little new today for the book listings. I'm trying to find something that works for yall and is a little easier for me to keep updated and such. 

So trying this widget. 
On the right side are the categories--New Releases, 99cent deals and Freebies. 
Just click that then scroll through. 
There may be a couple pages for each--I think only 9 books show per page. 

The thing I DO like about this is if you click on any of the covers it'll open up to show you the blurb and book info which I know some of yall like. Then just hit back and it'll take you back to the listing widget or click buy and it'll take you to Amazon.

Not sure if I'll do it this way long term but kinda wanted to try it out for this week :D So. Let me know what you think! And if you're so inclined please share the post! ~Anna

Eeps! I'm late, I'm late! Sorry about that guys. The laptop needed to charge and I was just going to nap a little while it did then put up my post and, well, 8 hours later... lol Anywho. Today's Quote-tastic...

Ahhhh Night Shift! This is a fantastic anthology. If you're a novella...pretty much you hope to grow up to be one of the ones in this antho. These ladies rocked it so hard. It was fantastic! So two quotes today. I Just couldn't pick. First is from Nalini Singh's story. I just loved Bastien's voice. Kirby's pretty dang freaked out--and rightfully so--both of what was happening to her in the story and how quick they bonded and I loved how he spoke to her.

Bucket List-- Trans-Siberian Orchestra and....a blogger break

A Bucket List with a herding cats twist. lol

Each month I'm going to pick out...something to do or try and then give myself the entire month to make it happen. It's not going to be the typical "bucket list" kinda things but still in that spirit.

They won't all be big things.
Some will be fun, some serious, some easy or a little more complex. 
Things I've wanted to see or do, projects around the house, things on the blog, etc.

Everyone is welcome to join in if they'd like!
Create a blog post or add what you're doing in the comments!
Sooooo! For November's list I went to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra! Woots!
I've wanted to go for years and was hoping to find a few people to go with me this year and I did. I ended up going with one of my local author friends who is in my book club., We had another going with us but afternoon before she was told nope not just a little cold but contagious and shouldn't go play. Boo! But Beth and I headed out and had a great time.

Designed for Love by Kelsey Browning Excerpt Tour-- Day 6!

Hey guys! Today we're taking part in an excerpt tour for Kelsey Browning who is just an awesome lady. I've got excerpt 6 :D If you'd like to check out the rest of them the links are below. Also! Kelsey is hosting a Thankful for Romance Facebook Party from Friday, November 21 – Monday, November 24 and will be featuring a whole bunch of authors. If you'd like to join in on that just click HERE. Okay! On with the excerpt! Enjoy yall!
That’s how Mac McLaughlin sees her, anyway. And now that he’s enduring a temporary self-imposed exile in tiny Shelbyville, Texas, he’s seeing her way too often. Mac only wants to succeed as the contractor for the Lily Lake development in order to rebuild his reputation and return to Dallas, pronto. A sexy distraction like Ashton was not in the plans.

Ashton kissed her trust fund goodbye and left her life as a society princess to prove she could make it on her own. Developing Lily Lake is her big chance, but it’s hard to stay focused working side-by-side with bossy, rough-around-the-edges Mac. Especially when he pulls off his shirt.
When the discovery of an endangered species derails the project, Mac can’t afford to stick around for a stalled job. His and Ashton’s explosive chemistry aside, he’s outta there…unless she can convince him that they just might be able to build something together.

This is excerpt 6 of the tour.
You can find the links for the previous excerpts at the bottom of the post.

Caribou's Gift (Kodiak Landing #3.5) by Eve Langlais

Damn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade.

No way was he wearing damned tinsel in his antlers.

Like hell was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh.

But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.

Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl.

If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games. As Crystal and Kyle butt heads—and lips—they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.

Type: Paranormal, Novella
Heat: 3 out of 5--limited
Rating: 3.5 out of 5


It's pretty much a given with one of Langlais's books that it's gonna be a hoot. And *squeals* Caribou's Gift...totally a cutie of a read! Full of fun, quirkiness and Christmas spirit as the town gears up for it's Christmas parade--something they go all out for--and finds itself short one Rudolf *flails* And everyone starts eyeing Kyle the Caribou and his mighty fine rack for the job.
