Monthly Wrap-Up: October

Man Candy Monday: Sexy Monsters


I live for Mondays, do you? Of course you do. There's nothing like a bare chested man with a hint of peen to start you week. Since it's Halloween, I'll be showcasing some Sexy Monsters. Now, it took me a while to figure it out but I've got some vamps, werewolves and even an angel or two. What?! Angels can be monsters, helloooo Prince of Darkness!


Remember to join us on Twitter tonight (between running to the door and handing out candy) at 8PM CDT (6,7 and 9 for the rest of us). Look for the #ManCandyMonday hashtag and share your drool-worthy finds. Please for the love of coccyx, put a warning on the ones showing a little more than appropriate.

Now, less words, more pictures...

Monthly Mailbox: October Edition


Another month has flown by and the books keep piling up, threatening to topple over or bury me, Hoarders style. I blame my father for instilling the love of books at the tender age of 5. I've accumulated so many, I think I could open my own small bookstore or cover all four walls (floor to ceiling) of the soon to be spare bedroom in our next apartment.

This month has been good to me. Wonderful publishers have allowed me to join blog tours which in turn allow me at an early sneak peek at future releases. Fabulous authors have offered books for reviews of which I have been DYING to get my hands on. It's like Christmas has come early, which it sort of has with all the holiday themed books releasing within the next few months.

What I've added to my shelves since last month:

2012 E-Book Reading Challenge

Here are the rules:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.  Create a post about the challenge and link your challenge post up in the linky.

--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. 

2. There are four levels:
--The Mini E-Book Challenge – Read 5 E-Books. 
--The "Fun Size" E-Book Challenge – Read 10 E-Books.
--The Jumbo Size E-Book Challenge – Read 20 E-Books.
--The Mega Size E-Book Reading Challenge - Read 25+ E-Books.

3. No Audio or Print books. 

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. The Challenge starts on January 1, 2012 and goes until December 31, 2012.



New Author 2012 Reading Challenge


Here are the guidelines:
  1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.
  2. Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels.  Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.
  3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 new authors.  It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be. If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop.  Any new author you try can be added to Mr. Linky.  We all want to know about your new experience.
  4. After reading your new author, write your review and then go to Literary Escapism and add your link to Mr. Linky.  Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.
  5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome. You don’t have to have a site to participate. You can link up via Facebook, GoodReads or even Amazon if you’d like.
Once you reach your goal, you don’t have to stop.  Any new author you try, go ahead and head back here and add it to the list.  Introduce us all to whoever you find.  Afterall, there’s no reason to stop trying new authors, right?

Five Friday Favorites


Happy Friday!!! For me, this week has seen quite a bit of pirates. Yes. Those swashbuckling, totally suave yet sexy men wielding pistols, cutlasses, swigging rum and swiving wenches. But the pirates I'm talking about are one woman men and they're dangerously seductive. Also, the sun decided to come out after a jillion days of fog. At least on the coast. My favorite photographer/author is burning up the Time Travel charts on Amazon of which I'm doing a giveaway of her book. I've reached 200+ followers which might be a drop in the bucket in comparison to the established blogs but I'm also doing a giveaway for that too. Holiday books are showing up at my door, my local Michael's craft store has all holiday decorations 50% off and I bought a half naked man yesterday.

Now on to the good stuff. You can play along too, just leave a comment at the end of the post.

Here are this Friday's favorites:

Q&A with Gwyn Cready, Author of A NOVEL SEDUCTION

What can I say about Gwyn Cready? She's so nice and absolutely fabulous. She's got a thing for Colin Firth (don't we all?), she's a 2009 RITA Award recipient for paranormal romance, she writes time travel romances and Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER plays a part in her latest release, A NOVEL SEDUCTION. Would it be blasphemous to say that she's my Diana Gabaldon? I've been adding time travel romances to my wishlist. (Hey, the holidays are just around the corner anyway.)


MEET GWYN:
Gwyn Cready is the recipient of the 2009 RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance and the author of Tumbling Through Time,Seducing Mr. DarcyFlirting with ForeverAching for Always and A Novel Seduction. She has been called "the master of time travel romance." A Novel Seduction is her first foray into contemporary romance as well as men in kilts, and she found both eminently satisfying. She lives in Pittsburgh with her family. (picture: ©Garen DiBartolomeo)

Man Candy Monday: Vintage Hotties


Happy Monday friends! Don't forget that tonight is another edition of Man Candy Monday on Twitter (8PM CDT and 6,7,9 for the rest of us). Just look for the #mancandymonday hashtag, bring pictures of your favorite man candy, grab a drink and settle in for major ooglage. And if there's a NSFW picture, please for the love of naked men, put a warning.

This weeks theme: Vintage Hotties. I kind of had to ask around Twitter what that meant because vintage to me might not mean the same thing to someone else. I thought of boybands and stars from the early 90s. Then I went back a few more decades to James Dean, Jimmy Stewart and Rock Hudson. (What?! I grew up watching TCM and AMC.)

A NOVEL SEDUCTION by Gwyn Cready
FORMAT: Paperback
GENRE: Contemporary
MASS MARKET PAPERBACK: 373 pages
PUBLISHER: Pocket Star (October 25,2011)
ISBN: 9781451612646
When snobbish book critic Ellery Sharpe screws up at Vanity Place magazine, her boss assigns her the ultimate punishment: write an ode to romance novels, a genre she considers the literary equivalent of word-search puzzles. To make matters worse, he hires her sexy former party boy ex, Axel Mackenzie, to shoot the photos. Axel really want the project to succeed. For one, the magazine will double his fee if he convinces strong-willed Ellery to write a story no woman can resist. Besides, getting Ellery to fall for romance novels might be just the push she needs to believe people can change...even him. At his sister's advice, Axel gives Ellery a copy of Kiltlander, a much-adored romance whose warrior hero is utterly irresistable. To her dismay, Ellery finds herself falling in love with the story---and with Axel, who's drawing his own lessons from the book's compelling hero. With her carefully crafted image of herself crumbling and her dream job on the line, will Ellery risk it all to make the leap from tight-lipped literati to happily-ever-after heroine?

Blog Tour: Guest Post and Giveaway with Gina Gordon

WELCOME TO THE BOOK TOUR:
Hello wonderful readers! Today I've got Gina Gordon, author of BOUND IN LINGERIE, guest posting. You know how I love my book covers and well, I had to jump at the chance to host Gina after looking at her cover. Let's give Gina a big Texas "Howdy" and learn what seduction is all about.

HOWDY GINA!!!


MEET GINA:

At a young age, Gina knew she wanted to share her stories with the world. It wasn't until she picked up her first romance novel that she knew how those stories would take shape. Her characters demanded hot and steamy sex. Great sex! And lots of it!

Gina, a self proclaimed happily ever after junkie, loves spinning contemporary tales of knee-bending first kisses, unconditional love and super-hot love scenes.

When she isn't lost in her own world of romance, Gina spends her time reading, baking cupcakes or catching up on celebrity gossip. Gina lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and lovable dog.

GENRE: Contemporary Romance
MASS MARKET PAPERBACK: 336 pages
PUBLISHER: Harlequin- HQN (October 25,2011)
ISBN: 9780373776092

It was meant to be a one-night stand. One night of passion. Scorching hot. Then Beth Cantrell and Eric Donovan were supposed to go their separate ways. That’s the only reason he lied about his name, telling her he was really his wild younger brother. Hiding his own identity as the conservative Donovan. The “good” one.
But passion has its own logic, and Eric finds he cannot forget the sable-haired beauty with whom he shared one night of passion. When Beth discovers that Eric has lied, however, she knows he cannot be trusted. Her mind tells her to forget the blue-eyed charmer. If only every fiber of her being did not burn to call him back. (source)

Stock Up Saturday (2)


Are you looking for something to read during the many hours you are forced to endure college football? Or perhaps a little something to read while enjoying the nice weather outside? (I do apologize for taunting those of you who still have what I like to call Texas Heat aka 90+ degrees when it's already officially Fall.) I love a good deal and I bet you do to. 

Here's what I found for you this week, free Kindle reads and some of your favorite authors at a discounted price. I recommend the seductively sexy paranormal ones courtesy of the wonderful people at Pocket Books. It's that time of year: sexy vampires and things that go bump in the night. Why not treat yourself to something a little early? Or stock up for the night of trick-or-treaters, something to pass the time until another little costumed child comes along and rings the doorbell? 

Lords, scoundrels, highlanders, shifters, vampires, men in uniform, angels. There's something there for everyone. A few Gena Showalter books, an illustrated romance, the Lear sisters, a Black Cobra Quartet book by Stephanie Laurens, Bones and Cat, and my favorite: Delilah Marvelle's School of Gallantry books (if you want a scorcher, those are your books. Don't read while walking on the treadmill at the gym, people might think you're crazy because of the little gasping noises and funny "O" faces you'll be making. Trust me on that one.)

HAPPY READING!!!!
