The Last Day of the Avon Affair

Image
Today is the last day of the Avon Affair . I can't say how much I enjoyed these last 14 days. I want to thank Jena at Pure Textuality for setting this whole thing up. Thanks Jena! Today instead of one review I'm just going to give a shout out to my favorite Avon Authors , or some of them. :) Thanks for going on this trip with me!  www.rachelgibson.com www.candisterry.com jenniferbernard.net I fell in love with Rachel Gibson and her writing a very long time ago. She's a fantastic author who puts a ton of humor in her books. Both Candis Terry and Jennifer Bernard are new authors for me and I fell in love with both. Are you feeling the love? All three authors are well worth the cost of their books. In fact they have a new one out that you can't beat the price. Crazy  Sweet Fine came out on March 26th . Get a little taste of these authors, I know you'll get hooked. www.pamelapalmer.net I've always loved books by Pamela Palmer . She writes

The Sexy Demon Trilogy Cover Reveal by Jaye Shields

The Sex Demon Trilogy By: Jaye Shields Confessions of a Sex Demon Zahra proves that sex demons do it better as she goes from captive to captivator. Sex Demon Zahra Aniron is a closet romantic. Too bad she spends her time having hot, kinky sex with paying strangers. But she needs the money to pay off her sister's debt to wizard thugs. There could be worse things than getting paid for pleasure, especially since a sex demon needs climax to survive. As a blacksmith, Lennox Aegros puts his fury to good use pounding steel into swords. When he arrives at a new town, his real cause for being there isn't to sell weaponry, it's for revenge. When he finds the succubus he's been searching for, her beauty means he can mix business with pleasure. But the joke's on Lennox, because as he succeeds in torturing his victim by repeatedly bringing her to the brink of orgasm and then denying her the release that she so desperately needs, he realizes that Zahra'

Next thing he knows, he's waking up alone, the sexy brunette has vanished, and his good luck charm is gone. More than a little curious about the wicked-hot cat burglar and determined to get his property back, Mark's going to track down the thief and make her pay—big time.

Wicked Lies by Karina Cooper Review & Release Day Tour

Image
I was lucky enough to be asked to review Wicked Lies by Karina Cooper . I'll start by telling you that this is a M/M book. Going into this book I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the M/M part of the story. I've read a few and enjoyed some, but not the others. I'm happy to say that Cooper did a great job of giving us both a wonderful romantic story and a look at a M/M relationship.   Happy reading! Wicked Lies Dark Mission Series #4.5 By: Karina Cooper Blurb Jonas Stone has been given his first independent operation: rescue the insurrection leader's imprisoned grandson from the Mission. Getting the job done means more than getting Danny Granger out-it means staying with him while he heals. Staying too close, for way too long. Danny is everything Jonas isn't: confident, optimistic, honest--a man to be reckoned with. If only it didn't mean going against everything Jonas has planned. He's kept his secrets for years, hid behind

Be Still My Vampire Heart by Kerrelyn Sparks

Today is day 9 of the Avon Affair book review and blog tour. I thought we could talk about a favorite author of mine, Kerrelyn Sparks . I love all her books but my favorite one of her's has to be, Be Still My Vampire Heart .   When a beautiful mortal starts slaying vampires in Central Park, the Vamps call on their most powerful warrior to stop her—the general of the Vamp Army, Angus MacKay! The war is on, but will it end in their destruction…or in total surrender to a passion for the ages? Chapter One, Scene 2 Emma Wallace stomped her feet silently in the grass. The chilly air felt good as long as she was walking, but whenever she crouched behind a tree for very long, her legs grew stiff. This part of Central Park was dead, even too dead for the Undead. Time to move on. She slung her canvas tote bag over her shoulder and enjoyed the comforting sound of wooden stakes clattering against one another. She slipped out of her hiding place and skidded down the sharp in

Slow Burn by Anne Marsh

www.herfallenangel.com Slow Burn is book 2 of the Smoke Jumpers & Hot Shots series. It's about Evan Donovan & Faye Duncan . Evan and his brothers are smoke jumpers in Strong California . Faye Duncan is a photographer who comes to town to take pictures of the fireman, and what they are doing in Strong . She runs into Evan at a bar her first day there. Evan's friend and Faye ex-husband asks him to keep a eye on her while she's in town. Soon he's doing more then keeping a eye on her. I enjoyed this book but had some issues with it. At times I felt the author got bogged down with the information on her fireman fighting fires, not that I don't enjoy learning something new, I just want to read about the characters first. For me sometimes it caused the story to mover slow. But as a whole, it was a good story. I really enjoyed the characters and want more of them. I'm always a sucker for brother's and the way they act with one another and you g

Kiss of Temptation by Sandra Hill

www.sandrahill.net It's day six of the Avon Affair book review blog. Not only am I reviewing for that, I'm also doing this review for Tasty Book Tours . I'm a busy girl. Kiss of Temptation is about Ivak Sigurdsson & Gabrielle Sonnier . Ivak is a Vangel, a "viking angel", who is working at Angola Prison as a "spiritual advisor". Gabrielle is a lawyer working to get her bother out of prison. She meets Ivak and asks him to help her with getting her brother out. She also goes to Tante Lulu seeking her help. With their help, and the whole LeDeux family, they work on getting her brother out. I have to say that when I first started Kiss of Temptation I didn't think I'd ever like Ivak . The man was a man-whore. But as I kept reading I learned that he had changed a lot during his long lifetime. He somethings would think things that he shouldn't, but in the long run he was a very good guy. I also loved visiting the LeDeux family. If
