 Backlum Chaam, the God of Male Virility, wasn't always such a bad guy. Before his heart turned black and his biggest goal in life became destroying mankind, he was just like any god. Compassionate, loyal, and dedicated. So where did it all go wrong? Sometimes broken hearts don't heal...

Ahh yeah, I am so totally smitten with this series. Ellisson has a great voice and always tuns out well-written, entertaining stories with amazing, passionate and endearing characters. And Death's Servant, which is a look into the past on how the series characters met, really was no exception. She even managed to totally squick me out with one scene and put me off my cereal for a while. I freaking LOVE when an author can do that.

Early Review: What the Duke Desires (The Duke's Men) by Sabrina Jeffries


Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, accepted long ago that his kidnapped brother was dead. When a cryptic note from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claims otherwise, Max seeks out Tristan’s sister, Lisette—and is infuriated to learn that Tristan has also mysteriously vanished. Have the siblings perpetrated an elaborate hoax? Or is the fiercely protective beauty as innocent as she claims them to be?

Fearful that the powerful Duke will destroy Tristan’s career in his zeal for the truth, the clever Lisette convinces Max to accompany her to Paris in a joint search for their loved ones. But their journey takes a seductive twist when they pose as an ordinary husband and wife—not an English Duke with a tarnished family name and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount—and discover an exhilarating passion free from the damning secrets of the past. With the line between danger and desire enticingly blurred, they discover that some mysteries, like those of the heart, are answered tenfold in the bliss of a true and trusting love.

Ahhhh ladies we've got Gina L Maxwell joining us today. Love her! Such fun sexy books and damn alive yeah her favorite type of hero? So totally works for me. Whew! Yeah. So, come check out her guest post and leave her some love :) There's a giveaway if yall'd like to enter that but no worries if you just want to chat with her. That's always welcome!

I reviewed Rules of Entanglement a week or so ago if yall wanna check it out. I wanted to smack him around a little there at the start but whoa that is one sexy as man. Totally won me over. 



Seven days. And seven rules to break…
District Attorney Vanessa MacGregor firmly believes that structure and order are the stuff that dreams are made of. Happiness can be planned—and it starts with the seven rules she’s laid out for her future. But as she’s organizing her best friend’s wedding in Hawaii, all of Vanessa’s best-laid plans are about to meet their match in a wickedly hot MMA fighter…
Jackson “Jax” Maris is focused on surfing, training, and fighting. That is, until he opens up his big mouth, and finds himself having to pretend he’s engaged to his little sister’s best friend, Vanessa. When they’re forced to share a romantic bungalow, however, their little charade suddenly takes a turn for the seriously sexy. And while Jax is definitely not part of Vanessa’s long-term plan, he has seven days—and seven naughty nights—to turn her seven-rule plan upside down.

Oxford Blood (The Cavaliers #1) by Georgiana Derwent


A Tale of the Posh, the Privileged and the Paranormal...
The Cavaliers are the most elite society at Oxford University - rich, powerful, and beautiful. No one realises that they are no ordinary students, but a group of aristocratic vampires from the English Civil War. For four hundred years they have groomed the most promising students to run the government, police, and finance in the way the vampires wish, granting them eternal life in return for absolute obedience.

When Harriet French arrives at Oxford University from her working class northern state school, she’s prepared for a culture shock, but not to become embroiled in the Cavaliers’ scheming and bloodlust. Harriet thought she'd be busy enough juggling her demanding tutor, new friends, and the murky world of student politics. But now, she must find the rebel vampire who is killing off the members, stop the Cavaliers from orchestrating a massacre of the year’s most beautiful and successful students, and defy the Society to be with the man of her dreams.

Oxford Blood is a British, adult, paranormal romance. It's a tale with vampires that aren't afraid to kill and a heroine who's not afraid of sex or her own ambition.
Type: Paranormal Romance, New Adult, England
Heat: 2.5 out of 5 (it's there but not all that detailed/lengthy)
Rating: 3 out of 5
Ahhh, so, we've got a secret society of vampires that rules a major uni and has it's fingers in all the prominent spots in society from the police to politics and isn't shy about using a little force to get what they want... intriguing, right? Yeah, I was totally feeling the set up for Oxford Blood. It took me a good bit of time to actually get into the story and the style (very British in slang, etc) but once I was finally there I enjoyed watching things unfold for Harriet and the world she's just discovered exists.

Guest Post w/ Deb Marlow + giveaway

Morning dearlings! One of my favorite local authors is stopping by today with a guest post and a giveaway of her newest release. I've been reading on The Love List and really enjoying it. It's definitely a first subject wise for me and I just love that! So, please help me give Dab a warm welcome. Check out her guest post and leave her some love. Even if you're not entering the giveaway feel free to leave Deb any comments or questions you've got!   ~Anna

~~*~~*~~

The Harris List of Covent Garden Ladies, that wickedly witty annual register of the city's lightskirts, was once a London tradition.  Now, as all of Europe celebrates the end of the long wars, the scheming Lord Marstoke has revived it--and transformed it into a weapon.


A List no respectable lady wishes to be on . . . 


Miss Brynne Wilmott escaped the monstrous Marstoke once, with the inadvertent aide of Nathan Russell, the Duke of Aldmere, and the incredible generosity of Hestia Wright, the former courtesan pledged to help any woman in trouble.  But now Marstoke's Love List is threatening her new future--and forging her into a weapon made to destroy her friend.


The Request a certain Duke has no wish to hear . . . 


The Duke of Aldmere doesn't believe in meddling.  Fate has proved that interfering in personal matters only leads to bigger trouble.  He has no wish to involve himself in Brynne Wilmott's affairs, despite her spirited beauty and damned tempting mouth.  But she's discovered that his brother is mixed up in this business as well.  Reluctantly, they agree to work together.

Their search leads them through some of London's most dangerous haunts and it quickly becomes clear that Marstoke's plans are more twisted and treasonous than anyone has suspected. Yet the danger and intrique are as nothing compared to the effect than Nathan and Brynne have on each other . . .

Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lie behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.

Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.

 I don't do too many really weird things. Okay. So, yeah, maybe that's a lie but foodwise? I *think* I'm kinda normal. Ish. But I do have a few little combos that kinda wigg people out.

I really don't eat these too often anymore but had to make one special for this post and omg yum. I so missed these. Damn them not being healthier! lol

A Tiger's Claim (Ashwood Falls #1) by Lia Davis


As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating. Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid.

Travis Hunter’s main objective is to destroy the Onyx Pack—a group of drug using, murdering rogue shifters. His seek-and-destroy plans are put on hold when he rescues a female from a brutal attack. The beautifully exotic tiger shifter, Shayna, stirs a passion he thought died with his long-lost mate.

When Shay’s first heat cycle slams into her, Travis has no choice but to submit to her needs—and his own. But there is always a price to sleeping with the Pack princess. Not only will he have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will now have to deal with that fact that their mating is beyond a simple night and could have consequences more than either of them had thought. And when Travis finds out Shay wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.

Warning: One alpha female who doesn't take no for an answer, a wolf with more on the line than just his heart, and a combustible attraction that's sure to cause more than one sweaty night.

Type: Paranormal Romance, Shifters (wolves/felines), Novella
Heat: 3 out of 5 (though not terribly detailed)
Rating: 3.5 out of 5

I do love me some kitty shifters and this time it turned out the kitty was the heroine! I haven't read too many of those so I was enjoying this one right off the bat. Throw in a yummy wolf shifter and some danger and action? Oh, yeah. That's my kinda book ;)

I love when an author has a fresh take on the world of shifters and Davis did a great job making her shifters a bit different from the rest. Not only was the Pack a mix of both cats and wolves they had special powers like telepathy, empathy, fire starting, etc. That was so working for me. I also liked the take on half shifters. They're actually mutants stuck in half shift form and are deadly to full shifters. Different, right?

Sasha's Calling by TC Archer + giveaway


Spy for hire Sasha Smirnov has stolen classified data. One man stands in her way of escape: sexy diplomat Dirk Roscoepilot. A sizzling kiss burns him into her memory—and her body. She stows away on a spaceship, only to find Dirk is the pilot. She doesn’t count on the passion that explodes between them, or the choice that forces her into his bed. If she is to save her planet, Sasha must get as far away from Dirk as possible.

Type: Space Opera/Erotica
Heat: 3 out of 5
Rating: 3.5 out of 5

For a fun romp through space TC Archer is so the way to go. Their stories are always a little bit quirky, a little bit wild and adventurous, full of sexy and touched with danger. It's a great combo that makes for an entertaining read.

Rev It Up (Black Knights Inc #3) by Julie Ann Walker

He Never Misses A Target

Jake "the Snake" Sommers earned his SEAL code name by striking quickly and quietly-and with lethal force. That's also how he broke Michelle Carter's heart. It was the only way to keep her safe-from himself. Four long years later, Jake is determined to get a second chance. But to steal back into Michelle's loving arms, Jake is going to have to prove he can take things slow. Real slow...

She Aims To Make Him Beg

Michelle Carter has never forgiven Jake for being so cliché as to "love her and leave her." But when her brother, head of the Black Knights elite ops agency, ticks off the wrong mobster, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in Jake's hands. No matter what they call him, this man is far from cold-blooded. And once he's wrapped around her heat, he'll never let her go...

Type: Romantic Suspense
Heat: 3 out of 5
Rating: 3 out of 5


Ahhh. Julie Ann Walker always leaves me torn. I really enjoy her storylines... even if there's very little to guess at where the villains are concerned. They're a little different and can be exciting. And I like the emotional upheavel all of her characters have to work through to find their happily ever afters. And oh I LOVE that so far every couple has known each other for years so the insta-lust factor they all get hit with seems so much more believeable because they have a history and actually know the other person. 




But man alive there are parts of the actual writing that just are not my thing. Walker loves cliche sayings and name dropping and for me after a while that gets incredibly old and just leaves me a bit frustrated.

Spotlight: Shameless Desire by Tina Donahue + giveaway!

Morning lovelies. Doing a spotlight for Tina Donahue's newest release Shameless Desire today. There's a great giveaway down at the bottom too if you're interested but, as always, feel free to comment even if you aren't entering :) So this one's an erotic paranormal romance. So it's a steamy one. Yum! And it's a couple books in the series but I'm thinking that so won't be a problem. Hope you enjoy the excerpt!


Within Earth’s five dimensions, nothing is as it seems…and desire is never far away.

In E4’s jungle, Kuma’s the Alpha werewolf, bent on revenge against the hated guards. Swept with them from that dimension to E1, he prowls Seattle at night, stopping the thugs from abducting women for use as sex slaves in E4’s Pleasure Palace.

On her way home from her nursing job, Gwen senses danger in the night’s shadows. A stranger attacks. Clinging to consciousness, she watches the impossible, a wolf fighting him off…protecting her. She wakes in her own bed, convinced it must have been a dream until she sees Kuma in human form. Virile, intense. A man like no other.

Within his powerful embrace, Gwen experiences rapture she didn’t believe existed. His unrestrained lust and burning need ends her loneliness, though not the menace they face. The guards are a constant threat in their hunt for women and their determination to see Kuma dead. Together, he and Gwen must fight—for his life, her freedom, their future.

Warning: Out-of-this-world sex and a romance to die for. Features a hunk whose inner beast won’t be tamed, and the woman who craves his most shameless desire.

Join Cara and Travis on their journey to mesh their distinctive sexual tastes into a loving relationship with blow-your-mind kink.

Type: Erotica, Dark Romance, BDSM
Heat: 5 out of 5 (pretty much everything goes. ^ check the warning up there)
Rating: 4 out of 5

It takes some serious talent to make fisting romantic. Yeah, I'm just gonna let you absorb that one for a second. Goodness knows I never thought I'd start a review out like that! Safeword: Quinacridone was an experience and oh it made me feel so incredibly...vanilla when it comes to kinks. lol It's not for the faint of heart but for those of you that take the jump and give this one a chance...you'll find a wonderful romance and two very intriguing characters that are well worth the foray into unchartered kinky waters.

Real Men Don't Quit (Real Men #2) by Coleen Kwan

When famous author Luke Maguire decides to write his next novel in the small town of Burronga, Australia, he's sure he can ignore the fiery redhead next door. Not only has he just been burned from a high-profile breakup, but he's never been one to set down roots. No, he'll finish his novel and leave Burronga. And soon.

Tyler Jones just wants to run her business with her best friend, Ally, and take care of her three-year-old daughter, Chloe. She's never needed help from anyone, especially not a man, and the brooding, rugged writer next door can't tempt her. Not in the least.

Only Tyler and Luke can't stay away from each other. So they set rules. No staying overnight, no future plans, no sappy good-byes when Luke inevitably quits town. But the chemistry between them is too strong to contain in a rule book. Are Luke and Tyler ready to risk their lives of independence for something more?


Type: Contemporary Romance
Heat: 2 out of 5
Rating: 4 out of 5

What a fun, sweet, easy little read. I hadn't read Kwan before but I absolutely loved her style. Her writing flowed nicely, the characters were charming and likable and they fit well together and had excellent fire between them right from the start. 
Scowling, Luke stared after her, his blood pressure still thumping, hands fisted on his hips. The woman's long, smooth legs flashed as she motored away, the purple lace panties accentuating the rounded curves of her firm butt. He couldn't help staring after her. There wasn't an ounce of flirtation in her walk--quite the opposite, in face--but she had him riveted. 
Damn his stupid male hormones.

So, I was thinking just orange art today but then found so many other really neat little creations to share...

Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom…

Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly—and quite literally—swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.

Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jake Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball—and being every inch the shark lawyer—so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.

Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…

A to Z: Masters at Arms (Rescue Me #1) by Kallypso Masters


Masters at Arms begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become masters of them?

(Book One in the Rescue Me series about the men who own the Masters at Arms BDSM Club)

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is an introduction to the series, but does NOT have the Happily Ever After endings that will come in the next three romance novels in the series. Being the back-story that usually is not told in "real time," there are some intense themes in the book, including death of a spouse, incest, torture, a battle scene, and amputation.


Type: Erotica, BDSM
Heat: Eh, 2.5? (not really the focus of this one yet though there are sex scenes)
Rating: 4 out of 5

Ahhh I'm finally reading Kallypso Masters and omg the woman is going to do me in! Not even two pages into this novella and she had tears streaming down my face. I'm not usually one for intro novellas but oh man Masters did an excellent job with this one and I absolutely loved it.

A to Z: Late! and a little cowboy goodness :)


 Well, that pretty much sums up this lovely Saturday afternoon. Holy cow yall. 

Late with this post. And late with getting to work. Yeah my phone totally died in the middle of the night and I woke up 20 minutes AFTER I was supposed to get to work. Oy. I felt so bad since I was supposed to take over for someone. There was a mad dash through the house, letting the dog out and getting to work all in about 15 minutes. 

Thank goodness I work only half a mile from home!

I really hate being late. For anything. I was in band in high school and the ladies in charge were drill sergeants. Seriously. They were crazy about rules and pounded into us that if you early...you're on time, if you're on time...you're late and if you're late...you're in trouble. 

12 years later and I still have that rule tucked hard and fast into my mind. 
So. To make up for my lateness today... some cowboy yumminess for yall. 

Hope you're having a great weekend! Enjoy!

A to Z: Kilts



LOL Alright so a little kilt humor to start out the day ;) I love historical romances and have become completely smitten over the years with Highlanders...and kilts. So today I thought we'd do a little kilt lovin' and I'd share my favorites...

Spotlight: Screaming Spires (The Cavaliers #2) by Georgiana Derwent!


Morning dearlings. We're doing a release day spotlight for Screaming Spires today! Congrats to Georgiana on her newest release. It's book 2 of the series and a New Adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy series with Vampires. I think it looks kinda neat. We're actually doing a review on book one later on this month so be on the look out for that. 

Anywho. Check out the blurb and let me know what you think! Have you read book one?
