Video of the Day–Dukes and Clowns Are the Same Thing, Right?

I went to my local library today (you don’t want to know how much I wanted to kill them when I got home) and picked up Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right by Kieran Kramer.  I’m a bit of a classic rock nut, so the title alone made me pick it up. …

My Favorite and Least Favorite Novel Tropes

During this last reading slump, I did a lot of thinking about the things that I like and the things that I don’t like when it comes to romance novels, and recently I posted about my hatred of all things vampire and were-related.  What I realized is that I am very picky when it comes …

Video of the Day–Sometimes All It Takes Is One Kiss

I know I haven’t posted anything is a week, but things have been a little bit crazy here since late last Thursday night and then I was working on my novel.  As a matter of fact, I have only read 1.5 books since last Thursday (the first two books in the Smythe-Smith Quartet by Julia …

Video of the Day–August 8th

I first saw RENT on Broadway two days before I graduated high school back in 2004–my dad took me to see it as a graduation present (my chorus performed Seasons of Love outside of Lincoln Center the month previously).  Your Eyes struck me as hauntingly beautiful.

Trying a New Author

Until recently, I pretty much stuck with the same authors, my bookshelves looking like an homage to Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and Karen Rose.  I was loathe to try anyone new, and honestly I’m not sure why.  I didn’t start out only wanting to read one author (boy would my reading have been limited–7 books until Casual …

Video of the Day for August 6th–A Love Spell

I started watching Buffy when I was in 8th grade during the show’s third season; I actually don’t even remember the first episode I saw.  I do remember watching Graduation Day Part II and explaining the characters to my mom (“What do you mean he’s a werewolf? lol). The day Once More with Feeling premiered, I …

The Wild One by Danelle Harmon “The bluest of blood, the boldest of hearts; the de Montforte brothers will take your breath away.” England, 1776: Lord Gareth de Montforte is known as an irresponsible rake with a heart of gold. …
