“Spring Pools” by Robert Frost...

Apr 16, 2017 by

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect The total sky almost without defect, And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver, Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone, And yet not out by any brook or river, But up by roots to bring dark foliage on. The trees that have it in their pent-up buds To darken nature and be summer woods — Let them think twice before they use their powers To blot out and drink up and sweep away These flowery waters and these watery flowers From snow that melted only yesterday. “Spring Pools” by Robert Frost...

J.R. Ward and Jay Asher On Top This Week...

Apr 15, 2017 by

Some new books have charted this week, including some familiar buzzed about books. The power of television and movies can help books with their sales, especially those books that have been published more than a handful of years ago. So is the case with Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why. Because of the adaptation on Netflix, Thirteen Reasons Why is the biggest seller this week (Young Adult and Adult Fiction), with over 50,000 in sales (print and digital combined). James Patterson, Mary Higgins Clark and Liane Moriarty are all big winners this week with close to 50,000 in sales. In terms of romance, (GO ROMANCE) J.R. Ward’s The Chosen did better than her last release (The Beast) with over 14,000 in print (with digital, I would say near the 40,000 range, giving her the #1 spot on the NYT’s...

Book Spotlight: The Playboy Bachelor by Rachel Van Dyken *GIVEAWAY*...

Apr 14, 2017 by

   She’s no Sleeping Beauty. And he’s definitely no prince . . .   Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again—her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot’s whiskey-augmented grandmother “buys” Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he’s at her door. Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass. Bentley’s just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most. Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love—nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that “just friends” will never be enough. Now all he...

Guest Author Post: My Top Five Authors who combine fantasy and romance by Elizabeth Vaughan...

Apr 12, 2017 by

Elizabeth Vaughan’s Top 5 Authors Who Combine Fantasy and Romance….   Oh man, ask hard questions why didn’t you?  Please understand that these are not in any particular order. 1.  Mercedes Lackey:  The Last Herald Mage Trilogy.  Want to see me weep over a relationship, this is the one.  All the Valdemar stories have romantic elements, but these books?  I cry every damn time.  Because they are perfect.  Not a traditional romance, and yet it is, over the course of the three books. They also involve a relationship between two men, and they were first published in 1989.  Ground-breaking, innovative, fascinating.  Even more, I really admire how she handles one of the main character’s grief over certain events and the healing process.   2.  Dennis McKiernan: Not the Mithgar series, although they are wonderful...

Welcome to this week’s wacky WTFckery!   It’s not a true WTFckery until you have WTF books and their covers: Cover twinsies! Dragon vs. Bigfoot. Who wins?   Nipple eyes are keeping close watch:     Nothing says romance like a creepy hand and a dead woman floating in water:     2. Would you spend $15,000 to eat at one of Disneyland’s restaurants? From Eater:     “For the money that it would cost to buy a four-door hatchback — say, a Kia Rio or a Ford Fiesta — you could treat yourself and 11 friends to a meal at Disneyland’s extravagant new boîte, 21 Royal. The meal kicks off with cocktails in a courtyard lined with lanterns and firefly lights, followed by a seven-course dinner in the main dining room prepared by executive chef Andrew...
