What Is Your Favorite Type of Romance To Read?...

Nov 17, 2008 by

My latest poll has closed and the results are in on the preferred favorite romance genre to read: Historical. It is all about the rake and virgin heroines 3 (11%)Paranormal. Give me some shift changing and undead love 10 (37%)WINNER: Contemporaries. I long for everyday HEA’s 11 (40%)Fantasy. Neverending Story Love 2 (7%)Sci-Fi. Shoot for the stars 1 (3%)Steampunk. The next big craze 2 (7%) It was quite close between Paranormal and Contemporary romance, but Contemporary won by only one vote. I was quite surprised that Contemporary Romance won, and thought it would come down to either Paranormal or Historical. The reason I read romance is because of the Historical genre. Gone With the Wind was the very first romance I read when I was thirteen, which introduced me to this wonderful world, and...

A Book To Keep Your Eye On

Nov 16, 2008 by

I am so very lucky to be able to receive advanced reading copies of books, and once such book I have will be one on everyone’s must be read list for 2009. Most of you know I have the honor of reviewing for a wonderful website called Romance Novel TV. I received my package of books to review from them yesterday and one such book inside was the February 2009 release from Carolyn Jewel called Scandal. This is a Berkley historical romance that takes place in the 18th century. I started reading late yesterday afternoon and didn’t finish till the wee hours of the morning. Scandal is one of the first books I have read for 2009 that I can’t stop raving about. My emails to various people over the last 24 hour period...

NaNoWriMo Week 2: Going the Distance...

Nov 15, 2008 by

It is now week two of NaNo and I am smack in the middle of writing Valli Nyx’s biography. Lately, she hasn’t been too pleased with me. She doesn’t bite my hands any more, but has this tendency to push me even when I don’t want to write. I guess in a way it is a good thing because without her bothering 24/7 I wouldn’t have the dedication to write. That doesn’t stop me from whining to Valli Nyx. “I want to read my book!”, “Look! HGTV has this great special I just need to watch about remodeling your house!” or “VH1 classic has the top 100 greatest songs of all time I must sit watch this marathon even though I have seen it 5 times already”. But Valli Nyx is a cold hard...

Less Than A Week To Go… Twilight Movie Madness...

Nov 14, 2008 by

A week from today the Twilight movie hits the theaters and it looks like it is going to be huge! Did you hear about what happened at the Stonetown Galleria in San Francisco, Ca? “Robert Pattinson, star of the film “Twilight,” appeared Monday evening at the Hot Topic store at the Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco; people began lining up at 3 a.m. in hopes of getting one of the 500 wristbands being sold for the event. When the crowd grew to 3,000 and began to get out of hand, police shut it down…” And perhaps you heard of plans for this: With Summit Entertainment preparing to release its big bet “Twilight,” the studio is moving potential future installments in the franchise into the development pipeline.The company has acquired rights to the next three...

The Price of Desire by Jo Goodman **Powerpuff Review**...

Nov 13, 2008 by

When Bubbles (Ana from Book Smugglers) recommended Jo Goodman’s latest, The Price of Desire as our next Power Puff review, Blossum was not too keen on this pick. (Buttercup (Thea) is still being sexed up by Batman, so she is too just too tired to join in) Her experience with Jo Goodman has not been a good one. The last one she read by Goodman was in 2003 when her Everything I Ever Wanted was released. This was one disturbing read. Blossum never has a fun time reading a book by Goodman especially when there is icky incest involved. She was not surprised that Everything I Ever Wanted had this wacky plot with the heroine’s brother lusting after her, while she trying to become an opera singer. Not only does insane, obsessed brother paints...

The Englor Affair by JL Langley **Review**...

Nov 12, 2008 by

I first found out about gay romance author, J.L. Langley, from Lisabea of Nose in a Book. She could not stop praising about Langley’s sci-fi regency male romance called My Fair Captain. Because of her recommendation, I read My Fair Captain, and was blown away. I have read gay romance in the past, but the majority of them were just ho-hum reads. J.L. Langley writes scorching hot and passionate love stories between two men that are just as good as the straight romances I read. When I heard she was writing a sequel to My Fair Captain, I could barely contain my excitement. If The Englor Affair would be as well written and romantic as My Fair Captain, then J.L. would be one author I could always count on for wonderful romance regardless of...
