Tempt Me Tuesday with Mad Hatter Reads 3/24/2015

Tempt Me Tuesday  

Thanks to the fabulous Mad Hatter Reads for all these lovely goodies!!


Happy Tempt Me Tuesday!!! Take a peek at what I found for us this week. Is there anything that you just can’t do without? I know I’ve been dying for Molly Harper’s latest, but what about you?
 

Catalyst (Control, #2) by Lydia Kang

Catalyst (Control, #2)For fans of Uglies and The Maze Runner comes a complex, thrill-filled love story that will make you question exactly what it means to be human.
In the past year Zel lost her father, the boy she loves, her safety, and any future she might have imagined for herself. Now she, her sister, and the band of genetic outcasts they've come to call their family are forced on the run when their safe house is attacked by men with neural guns. But on the way to a rumored haven in Chicago, Zel hears something--a whisper from Cy, the boy who traded himself for her sister's safety. And when she veers off plan in order to search for him, what she finds is not what she expected. There's more to their genetic mutations than they ever imagined...aspects that make them wonder if they might be accepted by the outside world after all.
 

Diamond Moon (Black Hills Wolves, #12) by Celia Breslin

Diamond Moon (Black Hills Wolves, #12)Human-wolf hybrid Darci Diamond spends every full moon locked in auntie’s basement in Southern Oregon. Her excruciating shifts terrify her, the last one causing her heart to stop beating. Seeking a cure, she journeys to Los Lobos.
Ross Luparell returns to the struggling Tao pack, using his millions made in the tech industry to build homes for pack families in need. He never imagined he would also find his one true mate. But when a hybrid with the biggest green eyes he’s ever seen lands on his doorstep in the middle of a wicked summer storm, there’s no denying it. She’s the one.
She wants a normal human life, free from pain-filled shifts. He won’t give up on her Wolf, and will do whatever it takes to help her accept her true nature. But can he convince her to trust him with her heart?
 

In the Time of the Dragon Moon (Wilde Island Chronicles, #3) by Janet Lee Carey

In the Time of Dragon Moon (Wilde Island Chronicles, #3)An epic fantasy about dragons, dark secrets, Pendragons, and magic.
On the southernmost tip of Wilde Island--far from the Dragonswood sanctuary and the Pendragon Castle--live the native Euit people. Uma, who is half Euit and half English, and not fully accepted by her tribe, wants to become a healer like her Euit father. But the mad English queen in the north, desperate for another child, kidnaps Uma and her father and demands that he cure her barrenness. After her father dies, Uma must ensure that the queen is with child by the time of the Dragon Moon, or be burned at the stake.
Terrified and alone, Uma reaches out to her only possible ally: the king's nephew Jackrun, a fiery dragonrider with dragon, fairy, and human blood. Together, they must navigate through a sea of untold secrets, unveil a dark plot spawned long ago in Dragonswood, and find a way to accept all the elements--Euit, English, dragon, and fairy--that make them who they are.
 

Keeper of the Peace (Graveyard Guardians, #2) by Jennifer Malone Wright

Keeper of the Peace (Graveyard Guardians Book 2)The love of her life left her long ago, shattering her heart into a million pieces. It’s taken Hannah almost twelve years to push away the hurt and move on with life. That is, until the death of a Reaper brings Detective David Foster back to town and their paths cross once again.
With more and more of the soul-eating Reapers passing through town in search of the Chosen One, who happens to be her sister Lucy, the Estmond family has been busy enough. Now, they rally together in hopes of keeping Hannah out of prison.
With all the trouble lately, being a Keeper, a protector of souls, has never been more difficult for Hannah. Will she forgive David and rekindle their relationship? More importantly, will he find out she is the one responsible for the murder he is investigating?
Sparks fly in more ways than one in the second installment of the Graveyard Guardians.
 

The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire (Half-Moon Hollow, #3) by Molly Harper

The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire (Half-Moon Hollow, #3)In the next book in Molly Harper’s beloved Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Gigi starts her first job (at Vampire Headquarters), gets over her first love, and may even fall for her first vampire!
Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she’ll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants.
 



The Door in the Moon (Chronoptika, #3) by Catherine Fisher

The vast, intricate world, fascinating revelations, and unexpected turns in the final book of the Obsidian Mirror trilogy will appeal to readers of Cassandra Claire, and will satisfy existing fans fully.
   




The Midnight Witch by Paula Brackston

The Midnight Witch"The dead are seldom silent. All that is required for them to be heard is that someone be willing to listen. I have been listening to the dead all my life."
Lilith is the daughter of the sixth Duke of Radnor. She is one of the most beautiful young women in London and engaged to the city’s most eligible bachelor. She is also a witch.
When her father dies, her hapless brother Freddie takes the title. But it is Lilith, instructed in the art of necromancy, who inherits their father’s role as Head Witch of the Lazarus Coven. And it is Lilith who must face the threat of the Sentinels, a powerful group of sorcerers intent on reclaiming the Elixir from the coven’s guardianship for their own dark purposes. Lilith knows the Lazarus creed: secrecy and silence. To abandon either would put both the coven and all she holds dear in grave danger. She has spent her life honoring it, right down to her charming fiancé and fellow witch, Viscount Louis Harcourt.
Until the day she meets Bram, a talented artist who is neither a witch nor a member of her class. With him, she must not be secret and silent. Despite her loyalty to the coven and duty to her family, Lilith cannot keep her life as a witch hidden from the man she loves.
To tell him will risk everything.
Spanning the opulence of Edwardian London and the dark days of World War I, The Midnight Witch is the third novel from New York Times bestselling author Paula Brackston.
 

The Moon Tells Secrets by Savanna Welles

The Moon Tells Secrets"Don't trust nobody. Not family. Not friend. Don't let it get him like it got my son, not until he is ready to meet it. And remember that blood must pay for blood. A debt must be paid. Your boy can never forget. That is his destiny."
Raine is at her wits' end. Her eleven-year-old son, Davey, whom she has raised by herself, has the power to shapeshift into any animal—a "gift" from his dead father. As Raine struggles to control his abilities that are so clearly out of her realm, a darker threat moves closer—a skinwalker bent on killing Raine and Davey. But even if the skinwalker doesn't succeed, someone closer to Raine will become just as vicious…
Cade, still grieving the brutal murder of his wife, finds solace in Raine's companionship. But as the savage details of her death mirror the powers Davey is soon to have, Raine will have to fight to protect her son.

This bracelet is created using 38 of my earring sized mini journals. Each journal is handmade by me, measures approximately 12mm x 15mm and contains 48 pages of 67lb paper divided into four sections. Each section has been sewn directly to the cover using strong linen thread.

The journals are attached to a chain. There is a smaller chain attached to the main chain (as shown in the second picture) which allows this bracelet to be adjusted to fit a wide variety of wrists. It can be adjusted to 7.5 - 9.5 inches in length and is meant to hang loosely around the wrist so the books are free to move as you move. The bracelet uses a lobster clasp closure.

This is a fun piece of jewelry and a great conversation starter. It will definitely make people look twice (in a good way, of course!).

When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances - names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone's secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?

Coffee shop owner Pyper Rayne now sees dead people. After she purchases the perfect vintage dress, a sexy ghost from Pyper’s recent past is suddenly everywhere—at her café, crashing parties, and even lounging in her bedroom. But he’s not just any ghost. He’s a witch and able to appear in solid form…sometimes. If only he'd stop disappearing on her.
And he has a job for her. In between stolen kisses, Pyper will need to help him solve a ninety-year old murder if she wants to free him from an ancient curse…and maybe finally get that date he keeps promising her.
 

The Darkling Lord (Court of Annwyn, #4) by Shona Husk

The Darkling Lord (Court of Annwyn, #4)A darkling with a lust for power…
Henry Saint shouldn’t exist. Every year on his birthday, he kills someone and takes their soul so that he may live another year. He is a darkling, not fairy… but not human either. Yet he is bound by the laws of both worlds. With a new King on the throne of Annwyn and the mortal world trying to rebuild after plagues killed so many, Henry seizes the opportunity to carve out a place of his own. He wants Detroit.
A spy without a soul…
Darah was Felan’s spy before he became King of Annwyn. Now he has one last mission for her. He wants her to join the darkling’s Court and discover what Henry’s endgame is. No one trusts the Banished when they gather in great numbers. As Darah gets drawn into Henry’s world she realizes he can give her the one thing she could never find in Annwyn—love. But is love worth betraying her King?
 

The Scent (Bryn and Sinjin, #2) by H.P. Mallory

The Scent (Bryn and Sinjin #2)When Bryn’s loyalty to her own people is tested, the decision she makes will change the course of her life forever…
Truth be told, Bryn isn’t really sure where her loyalties lie. Of one thing she’s sure, though, is that her fraternal twin sister, Jolie, who also happens to be the Queen of the Underworld, should be her sworn enemy. But after spending months with Jolie, Bryn can’t deny the fact that she genuinely cares for her sister, much though she shouldn’t. If it weren’t maddening enough that her relationship with Jolie is anything but black and white, then there’s Sinjin.
Cool, calm and calculated, Sinjin Sinclair is everything Bryn imagines she should find reprehensible in a man. First of all, he’s a master vampire and all vampires, in Bryn’s mind, are nothing more than bloodsucking parasites. Secondly, his unflagging cockiness when paired with his boyish charm is enough to irritate any sensible woman. Mostly, though, it’s Sinjin’s unapologetic sexuality that Bryn finds extremely off-putting…and, well, somewhat entertaining and possibly even exhilarating.
After Bryn purposely botches her leader’s attack on Jolie, Bryn finds herself returned to her old life, a life she thought she’d wanted. But the old adage, “be careful what you wish for because you might get it,” will take on new meaning once she finds herself playing hostage to her own people.
 

The Witch of Painted Sorrows by M.J. Rose

The Witch of Painted SorrowsPossession. Power. Passion. New York Times bestselling novelist M. J. Rose creates her most provocative and magical spellbinder yet in this gothic novel set against the lavish spectacle of 1890s Belle Époque Paris.
Sandrine Salome flees New York for her grandmother’s Paris mansion to escape her dangerous husband, but what she finds there is even more menacing. The house, famous for its lavish art collection and elegant salons, is mysteriously closed up. Although her grandmother insists it’s dangerous for Sandrine to visit, she defies her and meets Julien Duplessi, a mesmerizing young architect. Together they explore the hidden night world of Paris, the forbidden occult underground and Sandrine’s deepest desires.
Among the bohemians and the demi-monde, Sandrine discovers her erotic nature as a lover and painter. Then darker influences threaten—her cold and cruel husband is tracking her down and something sinister is taking hold, changing Sandrine, altering her. She’s become possessed by La Lune: A witch, a legend, and a sixteenth-century courtesan, who opens up her life to a darkness that may become a gift or a curse.
This is Sandrine’s “wild night of the soul,” her odyssey in the magnificent city of Paris, of art, love, and witchery.

Book Review: Rock Hard (Rock Kiss Series, Bk #2) by Nalini Singh

Rock Hard 
(Rock Kiss Series, Bk #2) 
By Nalini Singh

Blurb: 
In New York Times Bestselling author Nalini Singh’s newest contemporary romance, passion ignites between a gorgeous, sinfully sexy man who built himself up from nothing and a shy woman who has a terrible secret in her past… 

Wealthy businessman Gabriel Bishop rules the boardroom with the same determination and ruthlessness that made him a rock star on the rugby field. He knows what he wants, and he’ll go after it no-holds-barred.

And what he wants is Charlotte Baird.

Charlotte knows she’s a mouse. Emotionally scarred and painfully shy, she just wants to do her job and remain as invisible as possible. But the new CEO—a brilliant, broad-shouldered T-Rex of a man who growls and storms through the office, leaving carnage in his wake—clearly has other plans. Plans that may be equal parts business and bedroom.

If Charlotte intends to survive this battle of wits and hearts, the mouse will have to learn to wrangle the T-Rex. Game on.




Available for purchase at 

         


Viviana's Review: 
After reading "Rock Courtship (Rock Kiss, #1.5)" I just had to read "Rock Hard". Also, did you see the cover? I mean, LOOK AT IT! Okay, eyes back here! LOL, Sorry, my fault! I haven't read Nalini's PNR series (gasp I know) but I have added it to my TBR Mountain as I have fallen for her writing style! She has a gift with words and creating characters that the reader can connect with and totally fall for.

If you picked up, I have read the novella of this series and not the first book. Sigh... too many books NOT enough time! My friend and fellow blogger Kelly from Books-n-Kisses LOVED this book (here is her review if you'd like to check it out) and says I MUST read the first one to get an idea why the nickname T-Rex fits Gabriel to a Tee. While I did promise I'd read it and I do WANT to read it, the good news is that you can pick up the series from here! "Rock Hard" can be read as a stand-a-lone and Nalini does a  great job of showing the reader why Charlotte gives him the nickname T-Rex.

Facebook Pages: LIKES Will Drop















To start with, lets NOT FREAK OUT!!

 Before we start yelling Bloody Murder or complaining that YET AGAIN Facebook is "THE BIG BAD" lets see what is going on here. Yes, there is a 'new' update to Facebook Pages that will be occurring within starting soon if not already. The new updates will affect the number of LIKES that pages have. How will the LIKES be affected? Are they REMOVING LIKES NOW? You mean, besides them limiting who sees our posts, they are now removing LIKES?!?!?!?!  Uhm... CHILL OUT! 

Let's start with correctly defining the differences between a FB PAGE and FB Profile. Why do I need to define the difference, you ask? Unfortunately, many use the term as one in the same or refer to their Profile as their page because its their AUTHOR/professional account. Here's the MAIN difference. PAGES have LIKES and Profiles have Friends. PAGES have UNLIMITED numbers of people that can follow (and by follow I mean LIKE your PAGE) while Profiles have a limit of 5,000 Friends. Once you reach your limit of 5,000 you can no longer add friends. PAGES should be used for Blogs, Business, Authors, etc and Profiles is the account you use in order to create the PAGE, its a user account. You can still use it from a networking perspective but know that it will have its limitations. I have both a PAGE and my Profile. I post all about Books, Blogging, Promoting, Marketing, Sales, etc., on my PAGE! Things like what movie I'm looking forward to or my "Owners of a Kentucky haunted hospital plan to make it a haunted hotel" article or pictures of my doggies on my Profile. My PAGE is also about ME so I do post some of those things there but I don't bombard my friends and family with Books and Marketing stuff. Do I have bloggers and authors "friending" me? YUP! Do they interact with me? Some but most don't. I will accept them as friends because I have become friends with SOME awesome bloggers and authors that started with a simple friend request.

The differences are big and important because having that separation between "business" and "personal" is important and when things like gaining new possible readers is part of your branding and marketing strategy, having a rafflecopter giveaway that includes LIKE A PAGE and then sends the possible new reader to a Profile... well, you could potentially loss HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of NEW READERS!!! YIKES!

Back to the new FB Updates!  

Now that you know the differences between a Profile and PAGES and that no longer are freaking out, here is what's going on with the drops in LIKES. All Facebook is doing is removing LIKES from DEACTIVATED accounts! Basically, if an account is inactive, meaning, an account user has liked your page but since then has cancelled/closed their account (is now deactivated), Facebook will remove that account from your "LIKE" count. The truth is, the removal of non-active accounts will give you an accurate number of how many people are actively engaged and interacting with you! 
Woohoo NO MORE INFLATED NUMBERS!!

From a business perspective, this is fantastic! 
We want to see accurate and true numbers!! Before you start with "Oh readers are not seeing my post" blah blah blah... I'm sorry! I get that many may not see your post, but the truth is that if a reader/follower of YOUR PAGE really wanted to know what you're posting, they are going to FIND YOU! They are going to add you to the "Interest List" and they will TYPE OUT YOUR PAGE'S NAME on that lovely search bar and CLICK on your name to see what is up with you! So this bitching and complaining about "oh, FB is limiting my views", just stop! Post unique content! Interact with people and accept that that there will be some days when people will drop by and say hi and others when they will not and its going to be okay. You will survive! But what's most important is why are you doing what you're doing? To be popular or to share your love of books and share your passion for this industry? Does it matter whether you have 10 LIKES, 100 LIKES or 1,000 LIKES? Quality not Quantity!!!


Many bloggers and authors will have giveaways to gain LIKES and that's fine, but then what? How many of those "LIKES" truly stay engaged because they want to? How many actually follow your blog or read your books? Do they write reviews and leave them on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.? Do they interact with other readers/followers on the page? Do they BUY your books? Do they SHARE your posts when you're posting something funny or about your latest upcoming release, basically something other than a giveaway entry that will get them something for free? 

If the answer to all or most of these questions are no, then what's the point of having 10K+ LIKES? 

I rather have what I have and have it be a small community of TRUE followers/LIKES that interact with me and instead of MILLIONS of sheep that only want to like my PAGE because of my next giveaway. That is just me, though. YOU do YOU! Do I periodically have giveaways that will have a "share" or "Like"? Sure! I want to make sure that the winner is a member of my PAGE. Do I include entries to LIKE my page or follow my other social media platforms when I organize an event? Yes, this provides me with a larger audience and visibility to help promote the authors I support and love! BUT I know many will like my PAGE (and follow my other sites) and NEVER visit me again! Does it SUCK? YES! But that's why I'm okay with Facebook getting rid of the deactivated accounts! I'd be happy if Twitter and the other social media platforms did something similar!


Don't fret, the GOOD NEWS is that if the deactivated account that was removed from your LIKE count becomes active again, the LIKE will be re-added to your page count. 
See Facebook isn't a complete monster! 



For more information, please visit the "Facebook for Business" link. 



Tell us what you think! Should Facebook be messing with the PAGE LIKE Count? Are you concerned with loosing LIKES on your FB PAGE?
