HAPPY BOOK CLUB THURSDAY!

Thanks for stopping by this week, where myself and my BFF's/  fellow bloggers are reviewing First to Burn.

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

A soldier with secrets. Immortal Viking Wulf Wardsen once battled alongside Beowulf, and now serves in Afghanistan.

Happy Pants Cafe By: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff Releasing July 2014

BLURB: 
Do YOU Believe in the Pants?
Each summer, thousands secretly flock to a tiny yet charming hole-in-the-wall known as The Happy Pants Café.  And what are they searching for?  It’s not coffee.  And it’s not pants. It’s true love, and they find it!
So what’s with the quirky name and what, exactly, is the café’s big secret? Harper Branton, a columnist for the San Francisco Tribune, who’d sooner believe in unicorns than in true love, is about to find out.  And it’s the perfect story to save her train wreck of a career.
Too bad she’s got competition. He’s sexy, he’s arrogant, and he thinks she’s crazy.(Perhaps  a little dangerous, too.) What kind of person doesn’t believe in love? And this coming from a dude!
When these two rivals go head to head, it's more like a WWF smackdown. A shared history binds them in wonderful, terrible ways quickly making their duel about more than just a news story. Will they tear each other apart for…

BOOK CLUB THURSDAYS- WHAT DOES READING MEAN TO YOU?

Image
WELCOME BACK!

It's another Book Club Thursday.... 

This week we are talking about what reading means to us.

I didn't really have many friends as a kid.  I actually had HUNDREDS. 

Okay, so I'm writing a bit of fiction here. LOL

My friends were books. 

I was bullied quite a bit and didn't fit in or have lots of school mates that I got close too. 

I was lucky enough that my mom instilled in me a great LOVE for the written word. In fact, I was reading at an advanced level in 6th grade (special reading books had to be obtained for myself and about four others and when those ran out our teacher didn't know what to do because we were actually ready for college level books at that point).  

I'm rarely without a book and often joke that I was born with a book in my hands which is kind of played into my blog title.  I also can't pass up looking at books- whether they are at the grocery store, gas station, book store OR on your book shelves! I own way more books than I will e…

REVIEW- FAST TRACK BY JULIE GARWOOD

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK:

Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy’s girl—her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother.
Cordelia can’t suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them. Hotel magnate Aiden Madison is Cordelia’s best friend’s older brother. He’s oblivious to the fact that she’s had a crush on him for years. When he gets railroaded into taking her along to Sydney on his company jet, he’s unwittingly drawn into a volatile family drama. Aiden wants to help Cordelia get answers about her mother, but threats from her wealthy, high-powered family are quickly becoming dangerous. Sparks are flying between Cordelia and Aiden, but after multiple …

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR- VEILED TARGET

Veiled Target Veilers #1 By: Robin Bielman Releasing July 22nd, 2014



Blurb
Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.
Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancé’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.
Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.
Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction. Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear …

BOOK CLUB THURSDAYS:OUT OF THIS WORLD

 MIKLEWI JURRA PIUTIPX!

That's alien for  Welcome Happy Readers! 

(and thanks to somelia at www.scratch.mit.edu the cool alien language generator!) 

This week we are talking about romances that are OUT OF THIS WORLD.

Or at least futuristic/sci-fi themed.

Although not as popular as paranormal romances, they are no way any less intense or sexy.  In fact, in my humble (two cents) opinion, they are just as good but far less appreciated.


So I'll get right down to it and just highlight some of the romances from this genre that I have loved: 

ABOUT THE BOOK:

In the year 2139, fearless Tedra De Arr sets out to rescue her beleaguered planet Kystran from the savage rule of the evil Crad Ce Moerr. 

Experienced in combat but not in love, the beautiful, untouched Amazon flies with Martha, her wise-cracking, free-thinking computer, to a world where warriors reigns supreme - and into the arms of the one man she can never hope to vanquish: the bronzed barbarian Challen Ly-San-Ter.

A magnificent creatur…
