Isn’t it erotic… don’t you think?

Isn’t it erotic… don’t you think? No, it’s not like rain on your wedding day, it’s more like having hot, intense sex in the middle of a rain storm in front of your wedding guests… After enjoying romance books (paranormal) for over a year, I learned about “erotic romance” books. Why it took me so long to discover this sub-genre, I don’t know, but I didn’t realize it existed.  And I wondered What is erotic romance? Do they make paranormal erotic romance?   Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines “erotic” as: Main Entry: erot·ic Pronunciation: \i-ˈrä-tik\ Etymology: Greek erōtikos, from erōt-, erōs Date: 1651 1 : of, devoted to, or tending to arouse sexual love or desire...

To Spoil or Not To Spoil?

To Spoil or Not To Spoil? I read a tweet earlier today by my buddy Marq, @Love2Read4Fun, that said she was going to go home, open her new copy of Lover Mine by J. R. Ward, and read the end. *GASP* My next door neighbor does the same thing. She always will read the last chapter of a new book first.  Her reasoning is that not knowing how a book ends stresses her out and she cannot enjoy the book. So she finds out the ending and enjoys the ride getting to the final point.   I liken this method of reading a book to secretly opening your Christmas presents before Christmas morning. Then you...

Time Keeps on Slipping…

Time Keeps on Slipping… I have been struggling over what to write about for my blog. I had a steady stream of reviews to post, but now my reading has tapered off, and I’m in need of some blog material. Isn’t it ironic that I started a book blog and now the blogging eats away at my reading time, giving me less material to blog about?! I started thinking about my time management… First, let’s get sleeping out of the way. I generally sleep about 6 hours a night. Many nights it’s 4-5 hours, but for the sake of simplicity… I’ll go with 6 hours. I work in an office 2 days a...

Hear Twimom Roar…

Hear Twimom Roar… A little rant from Twimom… Readers of my blog know a couple of things about me. 1) I bought a Kindle earlier this year and I am in LOVE with it. 2) I am a huge fan of Lora Leigh’s Breed series and am excited for the release, tomorrow. Put those two things together and you can guess that I pre-ordered Lion’s Heat for my Kindle weeks ago! I received the following email from Amazon yesterday (Sunday): Hello from Amazon.com, We’re writing to let you know that we’ve canceled your order for Lion’s Heat because it will not be released by the publisher in Kindle format on Tuesday, April...

Confessions of a book-a-holic

Confessions of a book-a-holic Greetings from Philadelphia! I am here for work – arrived on Sunday and will leave on Wednesday. It’s my first solo trip from my family and I admit: I’m loving it! Sure I miss my babies and hubby, but really… It’s so nice to have a big bed all to myself! So what is everyone around me doing?? – They are going to dinners, drinkings, site-seeing (attending the conference, of course!). What do I want to do… sit in my quiet room all by myself and READ! It’s heaven! My first night here, I went to bed with my Kindle and read for 3 hours. I woke up and...

Born of the Big Screen 80’s Action Adventure…

Born of the Big Screen 80’s Action Adventure… I recently picked up Sherrilyn Kenyon’s League Series, which I highlighted a few weeks ago in my blog. Today, I’m reviewing the first book in this series, Born of Night. From Ms. Kenyon’s website: Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades was born and trained to slaughter. Refusing to be a pawn, he turned his back on the League and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him. Now his assignment is to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose father’s political alliance has made her a target. She wants nothing to do with politics, yet she is forced to submit to protection or die. And...

Kissed by an Angel

Kissed by an Angel       I want to start out by stating for the record: I *heart* Nalini Singh and her books! She is an amazing author. Her Psy/Changling series is in my Top 3 favorites and a must read/buy set. So just over a year ago when I saw that she was releasing a new series, I figured it had to be good. I was on vacation and found the closest bookstore. When I got there and the book wasn’t on the shelf, I made them pull Angels’ Blood from the back. I was NOT disappointed! I devoured the book in a day and from that point on was hooked!...

Not that there is anything wrong with that…

Not that there is anything wrong with that… Recently I won a free ebook from KC at SmokingHotBooks. She blogged over the first 2 weeks in February with the theme “14 days of man love.” Although I had never read any m/m (male/male) romance books, I figured I would enter the contest to win a free book. When KC notified me that I WON, I was so excited. But then I thought “What will I read?” She has been going on and on about all these great m/m books she reads, but to be honest, they didn’t sound all that appealing to me. Not to mention I am a HUGE paranormal fan – I just don’t read...
