Blog Tour: Guest Post-Ideas and Inspiration by AJ Warner + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Guest Post-Ideas and Inspiration by AJ Warner + Giveaway

Today’s our stop on Love Interrupted blog tour! A.J is talking about ideas and inspiration. You can also read an excerpt here. The giveaway is located at the bottom (good luck!). Ideas & Inspiration I would love to be able to say that all of my inspiration and ideas come from my own creative thought process. But then I would be lying. In truth, everything around me inspires me in some aspect. Whether it is a tree with absolutely no life left in it or a kid on the playground, running the show, I see a story unfolding in every situation. The easy thing would be to say that hearts, flowers and love inspire me. But love alone doesn’t really speak to me. For me, all the background substance truly… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Far + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Far + Giveaway

I know a few readers will be turned off when they read the synopsis about Lexie sleeping with her stepbrother. Most will view it as a taboo subject, but in reality it does happen. I knew a girl in high school who fell in love with hers although they didn’t grow up together. When I read the synopsis for Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Far, I was intrigued. When the opportunity came to review it for a blog tour, I couldn’t pass up the chance. Narration is first person via Lexie and we get to experience Rome through her. She’s a good narrator and I often felt as if I were in Rome with her experiencing the food, sights, and smells. If you’ve visited Rome, you’ll easy fall into place… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Christina Lee’s All of You + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Christina Lee’s All of You + Giveaway

When I first heard of Christina Lee’s All of You, I wasn’t sure what to think. Even after I read the synopsis, I wasn’t feeling the love or the urge to really read it. Virgin heroes in the past haven’t wowed me. Lee’s All of You came highly recommended by a friend and I decided to give it a try. If Avery Michaels had a personal motto, it would probably be: love ‘em and leave ‘em. Growing up with a mother who didn’t have the best relationships with men, Avery quickly learns to avoid the trouble relationships entail. Instead, she’s satisfied with having a friend with benefits and the occasional one night stand. The night she first spots Bennett, he’s all she wants, but he ignores her. She puts the… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Angela Carlie’s Jenny’s Blue Velvet + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Angela Carlie’s Jenny’s Blue Velvet + Giveaway

I’ll go ahead and admit it: I wanted to be part of the blog tour based on the cover alone! It’s gorgeous, but when I actually read the synopsis, I was intrigued and Angela Carlie doesn’t disappoint! Carlie’s Jenny’s Blue Velvet is a story within a story and by that I mean, we get Jenny’s story and a glimpse into the book she’s writing. Jenny is an author and dreams of publishing her book and it becoming a bestseller in order for her husband, Jason, to quit his job and spend more time with her and the girls. I really enjoyed Carlie’s writing and she knows how to throw a curve ball I didn’t see coming. The alternate text from the story Jenny was writing was engaging and at times,… Read more »

The gratifying feeling she gets from helping others intoxicates Ally; the glowing warmth within constantly simmers, incessant on bursting free. Ally was born to do this, but how much more damage can her body take? Theo finds himself getting close to the girl that continues to inflict pain on herself. When he discovers her secret, his overwhelming concern drives him to do everything in his power to prevent Ally from getting hurt, no matter how lovely her intentions… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Karen Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Karen Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair + Giveaway

I’ve always wanted to read Karen Ranney’s books, but I’ve never had the chance. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour, I couldn’t say no! Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair was a delightful read! I’m a big fan of reunited lovers and Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair doesn’t disappoint! Writing was engaging and I loved the banter between Macrath and Virginia. I most particularly enjoyed how Ranney introduced us to the couple and especially how their romance developed and how they were torn apart. Character development was strong, but I couldn’t feel much empathy for Virginia especially after she agrees to Enid, her mother-in-law’s plan. I know people do crazy things in desperate times, but I just wanted her to show some backbone. Even Enid… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review: Carolyn Turgeon’s The Fairest of Them All + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review: Carolyn Turgeon’s The Fairest of Them All + Giveaway

Fairy tale retellings are often difficult because the author has to step away from the original text and give it their own twist. Carolyn Turgeon’s The Fairest of Them All is a deliciously dark retelling of two beloved childhood stories, Snow White and Rapunzel. Growing up, I didn’t care much for Rapunzel and much preferred Snow White’s tale. When the opportunity came to review Turgeon’s The Fairest of Them All, I couldn’t pass it up! I mean Rapunzel as Snow White’s evil stepmother? Yes, please! Narration is first person and told via Rapunzel’s perspective. It is in essence, Rapunzel’s story and in many ways, it needed to be told via her narrative. As for the actual tale, it’s your typical Rapunzel story with a few key changes. Mathena raises Rapunzel,… Read more »

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Today’s our stop on The Seen Trilogy blog tour! Today Cynthia is talking about virgin heroines and their appeal. I reviewed the trilogy separately, but here’s the direct link to all three reviews. I liked the series and hopefully you’ll be inclined to check series or at least weigh in regarding virgins. Also the giveaway is located at the bottom (good luck!). The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine Anna, the heroine of He Watches Me, is a virgin. Virgin heroines are unusual in contemporary erotic romances but then, Anna is an unusual young woman. Due to her past, she doesn’t trust easily. She certainly doesn’t trust a man enough to let him inside her. She kisses with her mouth closed and her eyes open. She deliberately doesn’t put herself in… Read more »
