How to Speak Outlander & Outlander book on Sale

Book one in one of my favorite all time series is on sale for $1.99 right now. If you haven't read and it's a wonderful series that is also being made into a series for Starz. I am SO excited that this is being made into a series and what is being shown so far is great! I can't recommend this series highly enough! Enjoy these snippets from YouTube. The photo is from the Outlander Facebook page. I'm giddy with anticipation!!

The Lovers and Liars Trilogy

This box set is not for the faint of heart or those with a short attention span. Each of the three books are long books which I normally enjoy, but the stories were not enjoyable for me. The shortest was Danger Zones and was about 491 pages. Beauman has created a complex world and they are well written, but I just couldn't get into them. I definitely couldn't marathon them all. The only one of the three stories that I was able to finish was the first in the set, Lovers and Liars. Gini and Pascal are both in messy places in their lives when they meet again after having had an affair years earlier that ended because of a lie told by Gini that could have easily ruined Pascal. Sextet and Danger Zones were harder for me to get through and I did not finish either. I simply did not enjoy the stories very much at all. I do not like books that even hint at incest and that is definitely a part of Danger Zones. That is a theme that I simply do not enjoy and wish that I had realized that incest in any form would be a part of the stories and I would not have wasted my time. Unfortunately, this is not a set that I would recommend.

I received a copy of this set from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Sneek Peak from When Day Breaks(KGI #9) By Maya Banks

This is the next book in the KGI series and is due to be released
June 2014, but Maya has released a little teaser on her Facebook page. Here's what she had to say:

Ah what the hell. I'll give y'all a TEENY snippet from Swanny's story as an early Christmas pressie  It's from a scene I'm currently writing so I'll just paste it here. AND since this is in the early stages yet, it is subject to change, be revised or even edited out. Who know! lol. Such is the writing process.


(From Swanny's point of view since no names are used and it's excerpted from a scene)

Without saying anything else, she moved her head to his shoulder, her hair tickling his ear. And her scent enveloped him. Man, if someone could bottle that scent, they’d make a fortune. Eden’s was a scent no red-blooded man could resist. He even had a name for the fragrance. “Hard-on in a bottle.” He almost snorted at that, but it was apropos.

Book Description:

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business. Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background. Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t… 

Eden is said to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her face has graced countless magazines and her body has sold millions of dollars of clothing. But her fame and beauty has earned her more than she ever imagined. Evil is stalking her, determined to extinguish the ethereal beauty forever.

Swanson or “Swanny” as his teammates call him is always up for the next mission. He came back from Afghanistan wounded and scarred. Hardly the kind of man who even belongs in the same room with Eden. And yet there’s something about the quiet beauty that stirs his blood and makes him dream of the impossible. Because Beauty loving the Beast only happens in fairy tales and KGI doesn’t deal in fairy tales. Ever.

Legal Heat series, Book 2: James and Lana
Samhain Publishing (December 3, 2013)

With passion at full throttle, there’s no turning back.

When private investigator Lana Parker follows a dangerous biker into an underground sex club, James Hunter is the last man she expects to see. But there he is, all dark looks and chiseled charms, ready to break her heart all over again.

Danger is the name of the game for an undercover cop. And the last thing James wants is for the fiery beauty to come anywhere near the notorious biker gang he’s trying to take down. Yet Lana has no intention of giving up her case, which means he’ll have to keep her close to keep her safe. A risky proposition—especially when their blazing sexual chemistry reignites an unforgettable passion.

But when a dark terror emerges from the past, Lana goes on the run…and James gives up everything to save her. Backed into a corner, Lana must face her fears, including the one thing that frightens her most…her overwhelming feelings for the man whose searing glance sparks her most hidden desires, the man she should not trust, but cannot resist.

Warning: The book contains violence, explicit sex, light bondage, heavy swearing, motorcycle sexytimes, bad-ass biker naughtytimes, and an exceptionally hot hero who will get down and dirty anywhere but under the covers.

Legal Heat series, Book 1
Samhain Publishing (April 23, 2013)

Passion this hot should be illegal.

Katy Sinclair made it to the brink of partnership at her high-powered law firm with hard work, dogged determination, and the ruthless self-discipline to cultivate a conservative public image. But when she follows an evasive witness into a sex club, she can’t deny herself a red-hot sexual encounter with the seductive bartender who sets her body on fire. She’s sure no one will ever know about her indiscretion —until she walks into the courtroom to find her dirty little secret is the opposing counsel in the most important case of her career.

As the managing partner in a struggling law firm, hot-shot attorney Mark Richards can’t afford any mistakes that might cost him his biggest client. Like getting involved with his beautiful, determined opponent—the mystery woman he hasn’t been able to forget. But when Katy’s quest for justice leads to death threats, Mark will sacrifice everything to protect her.

Now they’re risking their hearts…and their lives…in a race to catch a killer. Little do they know, the greatest danger lies closer to home.

Warning: This book contains explicit sex, light bondage, violence, murder, steamy shenanigans in the courtroom, naughty sexytimes in the boardroom, and an exceptionally hot hero with a versatile tie. Any objections will be overruled.

She obtained a Masters Degree in Law from the University of Edinburgh and then practiced at one of the world’s largest law firms in London, England during which time she traveled extensively, wrote moderately, and developed a taste for tea, European footwear and Greek cuisine.

She traded in her life of European glamor for the comforts of the frozen North and the excitement of home renovation, during which time she wrote extensively, never traveled, and developed a taste for beef jerky, Tim Horton’s coffee and Sorels.

After her first book, Legal Heat, won prizes in nine Romance Writers’ Association chapter contests, including the Grand Prize in the Valley of the Sun Hot Prospects Contest, Sarah decided to take a break from high heels and legal practice to write about red-hot alpha males and the women who tame them. Her second book, Against the Ropes, was named as one of Publishers Weekly’s Top Ten Picks for Romance & Erotica for fall 2013, and her third book, Unraveled, hit the New York Times Bestseller’s list. Sarah’s current release, Barely Undercover, was named as the “Must Read Erotic Romance of the Year” in the Sneak Peek Reader’s Choice Awards (2013). She hasn’t dusted off her briefcase yet!

The Book of Shade Blog Tour

The Book of Shade
Author: K.C. Finn
Release Date: 12/13/13
Book Description:

Lily Coltrane’s to-do list for starting university life is pretty simple:
1. Make friends
2. Meet a cute guy
3. Survive her first year in Modern History
In the little English town of Piketon this seems more than achievable, so much so that Lily even joins The Illustrious Minds Literary Society, an extra-curricular club that promises a truly unique social experience. What Lily doesn’t bank on are the Society’s monthly visits to the mysterious Theatre Imaginique at the edge of town, a dark venue that houses the most obscure cavalcade of carnival performers she has ever laid eyes on.
Stranger still is the emergence of the theatre’s enigmatic proprietor Lemarick Novel, a stupendous showman with a frosty wit who never seems to smile, and who raises a plethora of questions in Lily’s fearful mind. How does he levitate with no sign of wires or mirrors? How do the lightning bolts that shoot from his hands look so real? And why, of all the people in the theatre, do his pale eyes keep locking on hers?
The answers to this and more lie buried in heritage and blood. The Book of Shade is opening, and Lily Coltrane will read it, whether she wants to or not.


After that came the turn of the gypsy Michael had also spoken of, but there were no holograms of dead people tonight. The old Madame went by the name of Lady Eva and she took to the stage, working herself into a trance that she claimed would reveal the messages from the dead relatives of people in the audience that night. She was a round Hispanic woman with dark eyebrows that almost met in the middle who wailed like fury into the echoing theatre, calling on the ‘gitanos of the past’ to aid her, whatever they were. It was laughable, but nobody was laughing. In fact a lot of the older people in the audience were paying terribly close attention, waiting on her words in a silence that would have made a pin think twice about dropping.
Lady Eva passed messages that shocked some of the audience members into sudden tears, one older woman even rushed out of the exit door after the gypsy had given her a man’s name and a few simple words. The Madame stayed only ten minutes or so on the stage before her messages for the night were complete, but the whole atmosphere of the space had swiftly changed by the time Baptiste returned to the stage to announce the final act of the night, the headliner. After all that she had seen Lily could hardly remember what it was from the playbill.
“Ladies and gentlemen, your raucous applause, if you please, for the sensational Monsieur Novel!”
The audience obeyed the MC’s command, but when Baptiste had vacated, nobody came to the stage. It wasn’t until the last clap died some moments later that Lily heard footsteps clicking along the old theatre boards. The illusionist stepped from total blackness into the shadow at the edge of the stage, and even craning her head only afforded Lily the frame of a man in a long Victorian coat. The tense air in the dated theatre was sliceable, and every spectator breathed in their portion of that heavy air in anticipation of the moment when the odd Monsieur would step into the spotlight.
Novel did not disappoint them. A shock of lightning appeared from nowhere at all and in the split-second that it flashed he appeared for all to see. It seemed as though the patrons of the theatre gasped as a single being, even those who must have seen him before were transfixed in shock. His eyes were cast into black, shadowy sockets by the bright white spotlight pouring down from above. Skin pale as a spectre’s was exaggerated by the darkly drawn eyebrows arching into points above those gloomy hollows. His lips too were black as coal, a superb effort in stage makeup that reminded Lily of a haunting cross between a French mime and a black-and-white movie serial killer. She didn’t know which to be more afraid of.
Perhaps more astonishing still was Monsieur Novel’s hair. It was long enough to be combed behind his ears, though it did not grace his neck, and in the dusty spotlight it appeared to be totally white. The illusionist’s black mouth stretched into a serious sneer as he surveyed the awestruck crowd. He held out one pale hand with a slow and deliberate grace. Tiny blue sparks grew in his palm as he swept the hand from left to right in welcome.
“Good evening,” he purred in the darkest of tones.
And this time the lightning came straight from his palm when it struck.
