What Beautiful Monday! 

They said it was supposed to be overcast today but so far it’s a gorgeous day here in Southern California. I did have a bit of a shock this morning on my way to work. After dropping the kids off in beautiful weather I drive down the street a couple of miles and found a wall of fog. Weird. (Not sure if you can see it)

Yesterday the girls and I went to the mall to buy a gift for one of their friends and my youngest found these glasses. I couldn’t believe the amount of “stache” stuff they had on hand! Funny. 

Since I’m sharing pictures I thought I’d add this one in of my oldest and my kitteh, Echo. So cute together. If anyone else in the family tried to do that to the cat she’d run like hell. lol (It’s a little grainy, sorry)

So I started off the week with Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs. I just LOVE the Mercy Thompson series so much (thanks again, Renee) and this one was no different. In this story Mercy is almost on her own as she searches for the entire pack after they’re kidnapped. She gets help from unlikely sources and of course kicks some ass. As a bonus in this story we got 2 whole chapters from Adam’s POV! Woohoo! Good stuff! 4.5 out of 5 

Next up was The Baby Bargain by Jennifer Apodaca. This story is about Adam who’s pretty messed up from his childhood and his horrible parents as well as another incident that is undisclosed. He is back in his hometown after being gone for years to sell his parents home with no plans to remain after the sale. That’s before he sees his old love, Megan, and the old feelings start to stir. Pile those feelings on top of the fact that he finds out he has a son and someone is framing Megan and Adam is suddenly feeling things he never thought he would, nor does he want to. This was a good category length story with a definite alpha hero. 3.75 out of 5 

Still Life with Shape-Shifter by Sharon Shinn was not the shapeshifting paranormal story I expected. It was 2 stories in one that eventually intersect for a very short time. I can’t possibly even give you a little without telling you a lot of the story. It’s somber and dark and has to do with loving and losing those you love and how you deal with those people in life and in death. My review will post on Thursday over at Book Binge if you’d like to read more about the story. 4 out of 5

No Turning Back by HelenKay Dimon was a contemporary read about three brothers who claim a house that their grandmother had left them. Their father was a con man and he once stole from the town. Now there are more than a few that want the brothers gone, including Mark Baron. Mark’s daughter, Leah, was raised to hate the Hanovers and it’s her job to get them out of town. She’s nicer than her father though and while she’s trying to move them out she’s falling in love with brother number 2, Declan. This was an angrier book than I expected. The brothers have their issues with the town, the townspeople are divided on their feelings toward the brothers, Mark Baron is a complete ass and treats his daughter like dirt. Yes, there was an HEA for the most part but lots of things were left open when the book ended. It just wasn’t a happy tale to me, at all. 3 out of 5  

Bite Me, Your Grace by Brooklyn Ann is the story of a woman who is caught in a compromising position (kind of) and ends up having to marry the Duke that lives nearby. He’s a vampire though and there are lots of things going on with her not wanting to marry him at first and with him trying to decide what to do with the little wifey in the future when she starts aging and he doesn’t. It was a decent read that was entertaining. 3.5 out of 5  

Last for the week was Steamroller by Mary Calmes. How do I describe this story? Carson is a star player on the college football team – famous really – and he wants Vince. Vince has no idea that Carson knows he exists but when Carson makes his move there’s nothing Vince can say to deter Carson from his chosen path. The love story in this book happened SO very quickly but it was so well done that I was totally rooting for the guys to stay together. Carson was the steamroller and I loved his confidence in himself as well as the confidence he had in Vince. Really good. 4 out of 5

Happy Monday!

Hope you’re all well. It was a quiet week this past week. My hubby did manage to get the Christmas lights on the house yesterday and we got the Christmas tree put up. We’re leaving it ornament free at the moment to see how Echo the cat takes to it. This is her first Christmas with us so who knows how she’ll be. She seemed fine yesterday but let’s see what happens today when there’s no one home and she gets bored. :0)

I have a lot of giveaways going on at the moment so be sure and check those out to see if you’re interested in any of them.

Historical Romance Giveaway: Print copies of To Dangerous to Desire by Cara Elliot & The Laird’s Choice to Amanda Scott – ends 12/15/12 at 7:00pm.

So….did anyone watch Christmas for Holly on ABC last night?  I guess it was a movie version of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas.  If you did watch it, what did you think?  I DVR’d it but haven’t watched it yet.  

On to what I read this week – overall a really good reading week:

I started off the week with a book that Holly suggested to me and that book was The Gamble by Kristen Ashley. The book involves an American woman who lives in England who has rented a house in Colorado so that she can take a time out from her life an from her fiancé. When she arrives at the house the owner is there and tells her there must have been a mix up and she has to go to a hotel. She tells him off and then promptly drives into a ditch. The man ends up taking care of her and they fall in love. Now a BOATLOAD of other stuff happens in this book other than them falling in love but that is the major part of the story. This guy is uber alpha male but the woman doesn’t put up with all his crap all the time. The book has major editing issues and whole parts that could have been left out, imho, and yet, I couldn’t put the damned thing down. Seriously. I just wanted to keep reading as I was so involved in it all and actually had a hard time not immediately picking up the next book in the series when I was done with this one. I will soon, that’s for sure. 4 out of 5

Next up was Losing It by Cora Carmack. This story is about a college senior that “almost” hooks up with one of her teachers – before she knows he’s her teacher. I’ll post my review of this one this week.

Next up was The Lady Most Willing: A Novel in Three Parts by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway. The story revolves around a nutty Scottish laird who is determined to get his nephews married so he kidnaps women and brings them to his keep and they have to stay there because of a snow storm and their rescuers can’t get through. The novel was really good and I loved it. 4 out of 5

Waking Up Married by Mira Lyn Kelly was a freebie on Amazon so I downloaded it. The story is about Megan and Connor who meet in Vegas one night and have a great time together. When Megan wakes up in the morning, however, she can hardly remember anything about the night, or Connor, and oops, they got married. Megan wants an immediate divorce but Connor talks her into giving the marriage a 3 month trial as he honestly believes that they would be good together. The problem is that Connor’s thoughts on marriage are really quite different from Megan’s and they end up being at odds with each other. I’m happy I downloaded it as it was a good book. Megan had her issues but so did Connor and I thought the author worked them out well. 4 out of 5

O Come All Ye Kinky edited by Sarah Frantz is anthology of m/m, f/f & m/mf stories that are a little bit kinky – some much more than others. I will post my review this week.

Honored Vow by Mary Calmes was my Tracy’s TBR Challenge read for the week. Ya know, I bought this book right when it came out and I would SWEAR I read it then but when I found it on my Kindle and started reading I realized I hadn’t read it. Duh. lol Anyway, Jin is dealing with the power of his Nekhene cat and Logan has to go through a challenge (of sorts) in order to become the semel-aten. It was a really good story but pretty bloody – just be warned. I still love Logan and Jin together and in this one we also got to see Domin and Yuri finding their mates. 4.25 out of 5

Five Golden Rings: A Christmas Collection is a historical romance anthology that has 5 different stories that varied from London to South Dakota to medieval times. I liked them all and will post my review this week.

Shades of Gray by Maya Banks is PJ’s story. After reading a little more than half of this story I’m sad to say that I just couldn’t finish it. PJ and her teammate Cole get together and then right after that PJ gets raped while on a mission. PJ quits KGI and goes rogue as she goes after the men who raped her. I really tried to give this one the old college try but no matter how loving Cole is to PJ I just can’t see her healing emotionally for years…not 6 months down the road. Maybe I’m skeptical but I’ve known too many rape victims to think it’s otherwise. I won’t even get into her turning assassin. DNF

What I Read Last Week

Posted December 5, 2011 by Tracy in Features | 8 Comments

I can’t believe it’s December already! Do I say that every month? (Not that it’s December but that it’s a new month?) Where has 2011 gone? I swear I keep trying to write August on my checks because I’m still back in summer! lol.
This week was pretty quiet on the home front. Not much going on – just status quo – which personally I like. 🙂
For a good laugh watch this video with Katherine Heigl about how she hates balls – too funny!
I did get quite a bit of reading done this week and here’s what I read:
I started off the week with Again by Mary Calmes. This is the story of Noah who is devastated by his husband breaking off their relationship of 4 years and telling him he’s in love with a woman and has been for years. Noah can hardly believe it as they had talked about having a child together and Noah had proof that it was about to happen in just a few months. Six years later and Noah is in Vegas with his daughter Grace when he runs into Dante’s brother – and then his parents – and then Dante. The break up ends up being a Big Mis and Dante and Noah still love each other. Dante will try anything to get Noah and his daughter back. I really liked the story despite not really liking Dante. I mean I liked his determination but he was like a bulldozer in getting what he wanted. I wondered where that determination was when the relationship was up in the air all those years ago. Despite that I thought the story was very good. 4 out of 5
Next was Muscling Through by JL Merrow. I have to say this was not what I expected when I picked up this book but I liked it so much. The story surrounds Al who’s a big lovable lug but not all that smart…at all, and his relationship with a Cambrigdge art professor, Larry. The story is told from Al’s pov and I just thought it was charming. The differences between the two men’s intelligence was great but they made it work and I loved reading about it. There was a misunderstanding in the story that felt just wouldn’t have happened but other than that I loved it. 4.5 out of 5
Next was Desired by Nicola Cornick. This story was about a scandalous woman who wants to be rid of her reputation to get unsavory characters off her back. She proposes marriage to a man she believes to be impotent because of a war wound – little does she know that he’s just fine and more than ready to get her into the bedroom. You can read my full review here. 3.5 out of 5
Next was On The List by LA Witt. This is the 3rd book in the Changing Plans series and it was really good. We see Elliott and Derek getting ready for their wedding with all the excitement that goes along with it. But Derek gets some astounding news from his family when he goes to see them and has to sit down and think seriously if marrying Elliott is really what he wants to do. I really liked this episode in Derek and Elliott’s lives. I think it was very down to earth and showed us a bit more into Derek than we’ve had in the past – especially since it was from his point of view. If you’ve read the first two in this series you definitely need to read this one. 4 out of 5
Daybreak by Ellen Connor was my next read. This is book 3 in the Dark Age Dawning series (comes out tomorrow) and it was a great conclusion. This book puts us back in contact with Penelope and Tru who we met in book one when they were just kids. This is 12 years after that book and Tru and Pen have grown up considerably – and also come into their own as far as magic goes. Pen is on a mission to take down the evil O’Malley and his minions to make a better life for everyone. Tru wants no part of it at first but then realizes that he doesn’t want to separate from Pen. They both have to learn and grow emotionally, physically & magically and not hurt themselves in the process. As I said, a great conclusion to the series. 4.25 out of 5
Galen and the Forest Lord by Eden Winters was just a fun book. Galen is outcast from his village when they find him with another man. He is sent off into the forest along with a baby to seek the Forest Lord. He knows he’s going to be eaten rather than taken in but discovers there’s a whole community living in the forest. Erik the Forest Lord is attracted to Galen and his wolf is telling him that Galen’s his mate. He’s fighting it and eventually Galen is too. This was a fun and funny book. Neither Galen nor Erik are the brightest bulbs in the box but their not stupid either. Eden does humor so well and really brought us a great story. 4 out of 5
Once Upon a Winter’s Eve by Tessa Dare is the second story in the Spindle Cove series and it was so damned good. It was a short novella but so worth the read. The story was about Violet who is in Spindle Cove trying to forget about the man she loves who she refers to as The Disappointment. When a man shows up in the Cove who kind of looks like The Disappointment Violet’s not quite sure what to do. You can read my mini review of this awesome novella here. 5 out of 5
Brazen is the second book in a duo by Margo Maguire. This has Captain Gavin Briggs looking for the second of the lost granddaughters of a Duke but he finds more than he bargains for. He coerced into helping the woman, Christina, with a blackmail problem before she’ll agree to head to her grandfather’s house. On the way to London the pair find they like each other more than they thought. You can read my review here. 4 out of 5
A Tracy’s TBR Challenge read for the week was Highland Vampire by Hannah Howell, Deborah Raleigh and Adrienne Basso. This was an anthology of 3 medieval stories each featuring a vampire. While they were all good reads none of them stood out to me. I have to say I don’t read many medieval romances that involve the paranormal so that was a nice change. 3 out of 5
Another Tracy’s TBR Challenge read was After Dark by Luisa Prieto. The story revolves around Andrew who is supposed to be mourning the death of his brother Tyler but he’s not because he’s the one who killed the evil bastard. Tyler killed Andrew’s first love and he fears for Tyler’s family and Andrews current love, Devon. When he gets a call from his nephew that tells him that his father, the late Tyler, is in his house he heads over. Tyler doesn’t succeed in getting to Andrew completely but enough that Andrew can now see that Devon is a werewolf. When Andrew looks at Devon without his glasses on he has fur and a tail! He doesn’t know why Devon doesn’t tell him and he comes to terms with what Devon is. I liked Andrew and understood his need to try and keep Devon safe but when you’re on the phone with your dead brother don’t you think you should say something? When you’re on your way to said dead brother’s house and you’re pretty sure that bad shit is coming down the pipe – don’t you say something? I couldn’t understand why Andrew was so intent on keeping it a secret until after he was attacked by Tyler and then he couldn’t stop telling people – it was bizarre. Then the story ended, imho, in the middle of scene with no real conclusion to anything. I have to say I’m glad that my kids were asleep because I came out with a pretty loud what the fuck! lol It was a good but incomplete book. If you plan on reading book 1 be sure to have book 2 there to delve into right away and book 1 leaves you hanging.  I would like to read book 2 – which I can find to purchase…nowhere. If anyone has a clue where I can buy book 2 please let me know. 3 out of 5

What I Read Last Week

Posted January 31, 2011 by Tracy in Features | 8 Comments

What a crazy, insane week!
At work it was not only monthly newsletter time but it was also time for the Annual Meeting and haranguing people to get their reports in, etc and then having to organize it all really isn’t my idea of a good time. Thank heavens it only happens once a year! lol
On top of that my oldest had a really rough week with her math teacher and so it was emotionally charged at home. *sigh* Even Calgon couldn’t take me away. 🙂 Hopefully this will be a better week for her.
Oh, and she went to spend the night at a friends house and came home with her hair 5 inches shorter! Now I’ve been wanting her to get her hair cut because it’s super thick and really heavy and gets into a tangled mess but she kept telling me NO! But even so, don’t you think the friend’s mom who cut it would have had my daughter ASK me before she took scissors to hair? I mean, really? I found that incredibly presumptuous. It looks adorable and was exactly what I wanted her to do – and I know my daughter, I’m sure she didn’t even think to call me because that’s just how she is…and she’s heard me tell her to get her hair cut – but still! I know I shouldn’t have an issue with it since she obviously accomplished what I could not but it just irks me. I know, I’m strange. lol
Ok –enough about me – how are you? What were you up to this past week?
So on to why we’re all here…here’s what I read this past week:
I started off my week with The Wicked Wickerly by Patricia Rice. I didn’t like the characters in this one and frankly the story was starting to grate on my nerves after only 30 pages. I’m not sure I can even call this a DNF because I only read 60 pages but I just couldn’t get any further than that but I’m gonna. DNF
My Tracy’s TBR challenge book for the week was A Brush Of Wings edited by Anne Regan. This is a Dreamspinner Press anthology and it was a good one. There were all different types of stories having to do with angels in some way – whether it’s a real angel, a guardian angel or just someone you think is an angel. Darned good. 4 out of 5
These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf was my next read. This was the story of 4 women whose live get interwoven by 1 small boys life and it’s not all fun and games, lemme tell ya. My review will post tomorrow. 3.75 out of 5
Werewolf Me by Amarinda Jones was a book that I read for the Book Binge. Well, I didn’t actually get all the way through it. 60 pages is apparently the magic number for when I stop reading a book – only this book was only 147 pages. I didn’t like the characters all that well. Everything seemed over-dramatized and when the guy said I Love You and he’d just learned the girls name I was done. You can read my DNF review here if you’d like. DNF.
The Lady Most Likely…: A Novel in Three Parts by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway. This was the story of an Earl who enlists his sister to make a list of eligible women who he can marry. He’s 28 but has decided that it’s time to have an heir. The sister decides to have a house party since it’s after the season and invites the women on her list as well as other women and eligible bachelors. The story covers the women on the list as their find their loves – but is it the earl? Just an adorable book. I really liked all three stories and thought they were connected quite well. 4 out of 5
The Tourist by Clare London was next. Clare was nice enough to send me this lovely book that comes out on Feb. 28th. The story is about a spirit, Ace, who jumps to different bodies in order to have fun and mostly, sex. But on one jump he jumps into a man, Dan, who is in a relationship with Ricky. Ricky has issues with his ex…who doesn’t really think of Ricky as an ex. Ace jumps from Dan to Ricky and for once stays and gets to know the men. I’ll be posting my review of this a little later this month. Great story. 4.25 out of 5
Next up was Dangerous Secrets by Katie Reus. This is the story of Izzy who is living in Florida and working as a bartender. She’s got the hots for Adam who works at the bar too but Adam is working there to watch over Izzy for her father who is a wealthy businessman. There’s a madman on the loose and Adam is determined to keep Izzy safe. A really great read – my review will post on The Book Binge on the 4th. 4.25 out of 5
I decided to read Trusted Bond by Mary Calmes but realized it’s been a little over a year since I read Change of Heart which is the first book in the storyline. I decided to re-read Change of Heart first and it was just as good a read this time as it was the last. Jin who is a werepather, but a very rare type, who was kicked out of his tribe for not only being a reah but also because he was gay. His best friend Crane left the tribe with him and they’ve been moving from town to town ever since. He ends up meeting Logan Church who ends up being his mate. Jin has a hard time dealing with the fact that Logan had not been gay before he met him and Jin has problems believing in their bond. Just a great story. 4 out of 5
Trusted Bond by Mary Calmes takes up with Jin and Logan 6 months later. Jin is having issues, again, with believing that Logan can love him as much as Jin loves Logan because of the fact that the mating bond chose them. He thinks that Logan wouldn’t have even noticed him if not for the mating bond. On top of those issues Jin gets kidnapped by an old flame that isn’t right in the head. Jin goes through some horrific things and is eventually purposely kept from Logan. It’s an action packed story and really good. 4.25 out of 5
After that I decided to catch up a bit with my yaoi manga reading. I’ve been a bad little yaoi swapper and not read the books that Kris gave me when she left LA….in Nov. I know, I know, I suck. I got a few read yesterday and will continue on this week so that the next person on the yaoi swap list can get a package from Santa. lol
First up was Your Love Sickness by Hayate Kuku started off telling the story of two foxes who guard a shrine. One is a white fox who is very high up in the fox class system and the other is a red fox who is the lowest of the low. But the white fox loves the red fox despite that. There were other stories in this book that were cute as well. 3 out of 5
Next up was Skyscrapers of Oz by Yoshino Somei. The story revolved around 2 men and 2 boys (seriously 1 looked incredibly young to me – like 12 but I think he was supposed to be older than that) whose lives are all interwoven. The two men run a business and get caught up in one of the boys lives after being given a job. I really liked the graphics in this one and the story was good as well. 4 out of 5
Next was 9th Sleep by Makoto Tateno. This is classified as yaoi manga but really there was no boy love involved. It was the story of 2 kings who are in a crazy cycle to either die and go into a sleep for 100 years while the other creates an heir who then inherits the previous kings memories. It’s pretty convoluted. But 1 king doesn’t want to either die or sleep so he keeps getting reborn into different women. The graphics were good but the story really left something to be desired imho. 2 out of 5
Last for the week was I Can’t Stop Loving You by Row Takakura. Kyouji is training as an exorcist but can’t actually see the ghosts. His boyfriend, Yu, sees the ghosts but can’t exorcise them. Yu has serious jealousy issues in this book – not helped by his cousin who keeps trying to get Kyouji for himself. It was cute and well drawn. 3 out of 5

What I Read Last Week

Posted December 28, 2010 by Tracy in Features | 8 Comments

Wow I’m really behind!  I swear the day has totally gotten away from me. I just played Mario Kart on the Wii with my youngest for about an hour and I swear the thumb on my right hand won’t stop twitching! lol

First of all I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas – if you celebrate it. If not, I hope you enjoyed having the day off! lol  It was fun around here.  The kids were very good so they got good stuff from Santa.  We went to my parents house about 1/2 hour away and met up with family there. We ate enough for a small country and then played games that were loud and raucous.  A good time was had by all.

My oldest daughter had a rough week after her fall but managed to muddle through (thank you all so much for your well wishes).  Her back is much better – hardly even a twinge any longer but she was down and out for a few days – then the poor thing got the flu and was throwing up profusely.  I swear, when it rains it pours – not a good week for her.  But it ended well with all the gifts!  And her 13th birthday is this Thursday so there’ll be more gifts!  (Yes, it’s hell on the pocketbook!)

So what did I read this past week?

I started with How to Marry A Duke by Vicky Dreiling.  I read this one for The Book Binge so I’ll let you know when my review posts.  The story was about a Duke who was finally ready to take a bride in order to get an heir but he had specific things he needed in a bride.  How did he know who to choose?  And if he courted a woman to find out if she fit the bill then the scandal sheets would think he’s going to marry her.  So he enlists the help of a matchmaker who basically starts an episode of The Bachelor.  It ended up being a good book.  4.25 out of 5 (releases 1/3/11)

Next up was Two is Twice as Nice by Emily Cale – another book for The Book Binge.  This one didn’t really work for me.  The woman meets a great guy.  She’s hesitant to start anything because she’s been scarred inside and out by an auto accident and her fiance dumping her.  He gets past her defenses though and it seems pretty good.  Then the man introduces her to his twin brother who she had had sex with already, unknowingly.  Her acceptance of the whole sitch just turned me off. 2 out of 5

Next was Kindling Fire with Snow by Kate McMurray.  This was the story of two men who were in love with each other when they were in high school and meet up again.  Due to a snow storm they stay together in one of the men’s apartments and the time they spend together help them see they belong together.  It was a really great book and one I’d recommend.  4 out of 5

Precious and Fragile Things by Megan Hart was next.  This was an intense book about a woman who is carjacked and when she has the opportunity to escape she doesn’t take it and allows herself to be kidnapped.  It was a really great book with Hart’s typical wonderful writing.  You can read my review here.  4.5 out of 5

Next was My Fair Succubi by Jill Myles.  This is book 3 in the Succubus Diaries and it’s a good one!  All the same players are in it, Jackie, Noah, uber-hottie Zane (love him!), Remy and a few other newer players as well.  Jackie is trying to save her friend Remy from being possessed while trying to help the angels and keep her love life from falling apart.  It’s crazy but it’s good!  I read this one for The Book Binge as well so I’ll keep you posted on the review. 4.25 out of 5 

I won Tooth and Nail by Mary Calmes from Stumbling Over Chaos (and I didn’t even have to provide sexual favors for Randy to win!).  This is book 2 in Calmes’s Warder series.  I didn’t read book 1, His Hearth, but didn’t feel like I was missing anything but not having read it.  Malic is a warder (demon hunter/fighter) but is taking unnecessary risks. His sentinel, the man in charge of him and he thinks that Malic wouldn’t take such risks if he found his Hearth, the one man or woman who holds his heart and he won’t hurt. You see when he has sex with someone they age. Yes, they eventually return to normal and feel like they’ve had a horrible flu but his hearth won’t be like that.  Malic, who’s 30, meets Dylan, who’s 19 and though Malic is very attracted to him he won’t do anything about it because Dylan is too young.  But Dylan isn’t about to give up on the man he immediately thought of as “his” when he first saw him.  A really great book that I just was a joy to read.  4 out of 5

Last up was Must Love Kilts by Allie Mackay.  Yet another book I read for The Book Binge – can you tell I’m trying to catch myself up again? lol  This was about a woman who loved Scotland and then got to time-travel to there only she lands in the 13th century. It was a good book but the romance wasn’t all that great, imho.  The cover of this one – I love. Big strapping kilted Scottish hottie?  Lemme at him! 3.5 out of 5 (releases 1/4/11)
