Bound (Night Prince, #3) by Flames by Jeaniene Frost

Bound by Flames (Night Prince, #3)Play with fire, pay the price.
Leila’s years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin…
Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does…for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him—and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both.

Eloise has traveled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.

So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board.

What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

While the war in Otherworld is expanding, so is my newly renamed PI business. And my next case is about to make life very interesting…
While waiting for Shadow Wing’s next move, I decide to revamp my ragtag PI agency into the Cat’s Eye Investigations firm. My first client turns out to be our cousin Daniel. During the grand reopening for the Wayfarer, he shows up while being chased by a rampaging ghost. Daniel has procured a rare and valuable sword, and a ring of ghostly warriors comes attached to it. Protectors of the soul trapped within it, the spirits are out to stop anybody who threatens the weapon. As my sisters and I unravel the history of the sword, we quickly realize that the entity locked within the blade is a dangerous king from times gone by—and he’s about to break free and try to recover his crown.
 

The Three Fates of Ryan Love (Beyond, #2) by Erin Quinn

The Three Fates of Ryan Love (Beyond, #2)Two star-crossed souls discover that their fates are intertwined—for better or worse—in the second book in the Beyond series of paranormal romances that began with The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love.
Step into a world of angels and demons, where there are fates worse than death and love larger than life.
Ryan Love’s life is about to go up in flames—literally—when a mystical being named Sabelle appears, claiming to be from the Beyond, the realm of heaven, hell, and mysteries both awesome and terrifying. As Ryan’s family business and home are destroyed in a freak explosion, Sabelle saves him just in time. So why does Ryan feel like she’s the one who needs saving?
Sabelle is a Spinner, or agent of fate, whose sole purpose is to guide Ryan through his life choices. But the time is coming when she must part with him forever and entrust her job to someone else—someone who cares much less about him. And she can’t bear the thought, because each time Ryan touches her she falls more in love with him…
But maybe there is a way to stop the ticking time bomb. She’s heard rumors, and no one knows for certain if it works. It’s forbidden, of course, and dangerous—undoubtedly. Sabelle must leave the Beyond and bind herself to Ryan forever. But how will Ryan react when he learns what she’s done? And are their destinies forever connected, or can Ryan still pave the path of his future?
 

The Tempting: Seducing the Nephilim by D.M. Pratt

The Tempting: Seducing the NephilimEve Dowling left Thibodaux Hospital and never looked back. She didn’t want to look back… ever. She and her son Philip moved into the west wing of the Gregiore Estate mansion with husband-to-be, Beau Le Masters and, by all appearances, they were already the perfect, happy family.
Was Eve's life a dream? Some days were harder than others when she could not shake the shadowy fear that seeped into her sleep and turned her dreams into nightmares. Nightmares of being ravaged by an exotic creature that she comes to believe is a Nephilim. The horrors were different from night to night and yet they were the same: broken images, flashes of events, people, places, pieces of a broken puzzle that didn’t fit together.
An emotional story of love threatened by creatures first described in ancient texts as the Nephilim or "fallen Sons of God." Could Beau Le Masters himself actually be a Nephilim? Will Eve have the strength to vanquish the evil that surrounds her and her son, Philip? Will true love be able to conquer pure evil? Can she resist the Nephilim? All is revealed in The Tempting!
 

Transmuted (The St. Croix Chronicles, #6) by Karina Cooper

Transmuted (The St. Croix Chronicles, #6)In this final installment of Cherry St. Croix's adventures, only one thing could compel the disgraced countess to return to Society—the threat of immortality. All is not peaceful in the wake of the Midnight Menagerie's ruin. Although the Karakash Veil has been forced to flee its stronghold, the mysterious head of the criminal organization is not content to fade away.
Above the foggy drift, a priceless diamond vanishes. In the dangerous Underground, a murderous rampage demands retribution. The hunt for the mastermind behind these misdeeds sends me back to Society—and into the unforgiving embrace of the world I'd left behind.
Nothing is what it seems. Enemies, allies—and a man who struggles with a nature even devotion cannot tame. Torn between the scars of the past and fragile new beginnings, I must create balance in the world I have chosen—and with the people I have come to love. The game has changed; should the Veil achieve the immortality it craves, I will have nowhere left to run.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.
Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.
The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature.

Viper Game (GhostWalkers, #11) by Christine Feehan

Viper Game (GhostWalkers, #11)

While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.
The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she’s desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.

Book Review: Heat Of The Moment By Robin Kaye

Heat Of The Moment
By Robin Kaye

Blurb:
Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.

Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.

But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.

Candie's Review: 

This book was short and sweet! At just over a hundred pages, you instantly fall in love with Cameron O’Leary.  The responsibility and care that he shows his daughter Janie is enough to make anyone melt. I enjoyed Erin’s character and thought that she was fun and quirky. My only complaint is that the book ended too soon! I wanted more of Cameron and Erin’s story. This is a must read for standalone book lovers.

Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It

Book Review: Canning The Center by Tara Lain

Canning The Center
(The Long Pass Chronicles Series, Bk #2)
By Tara Lain

Blurb:
Six foot seven inch, 300 pound Jamal Jones loves football, so when he finds out the ultra-conservative owner of his new pro football team fired their current center because he’s gay, bisexual Jamal decides to stay in the closet and hang with the females. Then, at a small drag show, he comes face-to-face with his sexual fantasy in the form of Trixie LaRue, a drag queen so exquisitely convincing she scrambles Jamal’s hormones -- and his resolve to nurse his straight side.

Trevor Landry, aka Trixie LaRue, hides more than his genitals. A mathematician so brilliant he can’t be measured, Trevor disguises his astronomical IQ and his quirk for women’s clothes behind his act as a gay activist undergrad at Southern California University.

To Trevor, Jamal is the answer to a dream -- a man who can love and accept both his personas. When he discovers Jamal’s future is threatened if he’s seen with a guy, Trevor becomes Trixie to let Jamal pass as straight. But Trevor risks his position every time he puts on a dress. Is there a closet big enough to hold a football pro and a drag queen?

Viviana's Review:

After reading the first installment of the The Long Pass Chronicles Series "Outing The Quarterback" I couldn't wait to get my hands on "Canning The Center"! It did not disappoint!!

Where to start? How about Jamal! YUM! He's sweet, loving, family oriented, will stand up for his friends but he has a secret he's carrying around and its getting heavier by the day! He's at a very good place in his life and things are going great! His football career is taking off! Too bad the owners of the team are not open minded at all! At least Jamal still has his BFF Will around!! Will and Noah from the first book make an appearance, they are the ones who take him to the drag show and introduce him to Trixie LaRue! Talk about "BAM" "Interest at first sight"! And both Will and Noah KNEW IT!! They new it would occur! I smiled when I read the reactions. That's one of the things I adore about Tara's writing, you're going through waves of emotions with the characters but you feel like you're part of it.

Enter Trixie! She's the entertainer many come for her beautiful voice! Jamal is mesmerized! Can't keep his eyes off her! Yet, he knows, Trixie is a he! This intrigues him more! Here is one of my favorite interactions between Trixie and Jamal because Trixie pulls no punches and Jamals knows exactly what he wants!



As we flip through the pages we learn that Trevor is also hiding who he truly is from basically everyone! Jamal is the only one he believes he can be his true self with and that scares him. Both need to learn to be themselves before the can be with each other but the can do that together.

They truly are perfect for each other. Trevor gets a man who loves him unconditionally and all of him, both for his smarts and his dresses! For Jamal, how enjoys the ladies as well, Trevor/Trixie is a dream come true! Both get the support they need to be able to be themselves.

I'm sure you're waiting to know all about their chemistry? The guys are HOT! STEAMY!!! Yet they have their sweet moments as well! To be honest, I knew Jamal was a sweet guy but I didn't know he was THAT sweet!

Overall, a great read that you won't want to put down until you've hit the last page. Then you'll want to know when the next book in the series will be released! Can't Wait!!!!


Rating: 4.5 - Really LOVED IT!

Social Media 101: New Social Media Platform - tsū


There is a new social media platform on the block called tsū. Around the second and third week of December both authors and bloggers swarmed and joined this new site that mirrors Facebook in many (okay in like 99.9%) ways. I had known about tsū for a little while before the masses jumped and joined and created an account but was not using it actively. Why get an account if you're not going to use it? To save your user name! Remember, BRANDING is major in marketing and you want to be able to use your name (author's or blog's) and have it be consistent with the other social media outlets/platforms you're on. Nothing worse than typing out your name and get the "That name is already in use"!

So what's the big deal about tsū? Honestly, the biggest draw right now is that it's not Facebook. Towards the end of 2014, EVERYONE was talking at one point or another about the newest "updates" FB pages were going to go through in 2015 and how it was a negative impact to authors, bloggers, reviewers and pages who supported authors by sharing information such as sales. This of course is second to the already hated "limited view" posts get. Enter tsū! 



As I said before, it mirrors FB and this includes how it started. Currently you are only able to create a profile and either friend or follow other people. If you're friends, you don't need to follow and vice versa. You don't want to do both as each has a limit on how many you can friend/follow. There is nothing similar to groups or pages, but I'm sure this is something that is being worked on.

Oh before I forget... this social media platforms differs from FB and all the others out there in that you potentially can earn money for the things you post about and having people share. You read correctly. You can get paid for doing what you're already doing. Now, hold on a minute, before you start thinking diamonds or if you're anything like me, book cases and new reading material, know that the royalties you earn are $0.01 - yup 1 CENT per post shared. THIS is the one main "negative" thing I've read about in all the research I did on tsū. Its been called a pyramid scam to a bunch of other scam. Though this isn't the first or only social media platform that pays people that post. They are just not as well known as FB or Twitter and now, tsū. However, with this being said, the majority of the authors and bloggers who flocked to tsū were not doing it for this reason. They want readers/followers/friends to see what they post and use the platform to expand their brand and product (i.e. their books/blogs). I know I joined, not for the potential $$$, but to stay connected and to try a new avenue for social media. Its part of my gig to stay on top of the latest and greatest. Since joining I've "earned" $0.60. It can stay in the bank. :) So if you're planning on joining to make lots of $$, go for it and best of luck! If you're joining to try a new social media platform and hope to network and meet new people, go for it and best of luck!!

Now you know the basics. Want to join me? Here's an invitation!

Don't worry about having to learn yet another new platform or having to figure things out. Remember, you know FB so you know tsū. Additionally, Parajunkee did a fantastic Tips & Tricks for Tsū that you should check out. She did a fantastic job of breaking things down and providing details about the platform. 

One thing I want to point out that is an awesome feature that tsū has that none of the other social media outlets have is the ability to edit images!! THIS is one of the reasons I'm using tsū! I can edit images directly on tsū vs. having to do it ahead of time using a program/software.  Granted, the editing is limited to affects and basic editing options (cropping, sharpness, red eye, etc.), but this is more than enough for personalizing/customizing an image :) What do you think of my example below?






















Why is being able to edit images such a big deal? Images are powerful on social media! Creating unique images for your posts allow your posts to stand out! Images grab your attention! This is important to know as its a major part of marketing your brand! With that said, I have to caution you -  presentation matters!! There is such a thing as "too much" or not a "good graphic". This includes fuzzy, pixelated and out-of-focused images or fonts that were to not easy to read because of style or font size. Additionally, the color contrasts as well. Keep in mind that tsū is available as a mobile app when creating those teasers - font size and style matter!! There will other posts regarding images and how to properly create one for marketing purposes.

Okay, now you have some information regarding tsū and I'm sure that you like the idea of having another venue to spread the word about your books or your blog, should you jump ship and leave Facebook? Oh HECK NO! Facebook is still the #1 social media platform out there and has the largest audiences. Continue to utilize FB as you have so far and start GROWING your audience on tsū. Include your tsū account on your website and share on your social media outlets. You can cross-post your tsū to Twitter and/or FB. By cross-posting on all three social media platforms, you reduce the work load on yourself. This is another perk of tsū!

Hashtags work the same way on tsū as they do on FB and Twitter. Hashtags are a great way to search for specific things like #freebooks or a #giveaway. When you use hashtags in your posts, it becomes more visible to others not only on the social media you're posting on, but on search engines (i.e. Google, Bing, Safari, etc.) as well. There's been a lot of inquiries and confussions on how to correctly use a hashtag for marketing and on social media and we'll be diving into that topic later on!

This is a new platform, have fun! Create unique posts by sharing information about your books and/or blog. Remember, sharing is caring! Teaser images are a great way to promote your books and gain new audiences as well. Also, interacting with your followers is a MUST!!! This is with any social media platform. Its why its called "social", you have to socialize! LOL.  Oh and i must take a minute to say this one thing.... people want to interact with YOU! Lately, there's been a growing trend where the "assistant" of the author has been doing over 75% (I really want to say almost 90%, but lets give it the benefit of the doubt) of the posting of the page. The "assistant" identifies themselves with "*insert name" and that's fine to keep the page moving, but I got to be honest... it gets old FAST! Especially, if the "assistant" is posting similar things on other author's pages she's working with as well. Its extremely important to foster the relationships you have with your readers, but when your "assistant" is the one posting instead of you, its rather difficult. Keep this mind when! Your readers/fans/friends/bloggers/etc. are there to engage with YOU!

I mentioned cross-posting earlier and while that is an awesome feature, I also want to point out that each platform (i.e. FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Tsū, etc.) all work slightly different and you'll also want to pay individual attention to each. You'll have people following you on multiple sites... do you really think they want to see THE EXACT SAME THING on all? "But FB hides my posts!" Yeah, yeah... want some cheese with that whine? YES, FB may be hiding your post, but the truth and reality is that the readers/fans/bloggers/friends (how ever you want to categorize them) that TRULY REALLY WANT to know what's going on with you will search FOR YOU. They won't just be happy with what's on their feed! So do some exclusive "FB Only" and some "Tsū Only", you get the idea. Let the exclusive be anything from graphic teasers, cover reveals (Sneak Peak - meaning first thing in the morning and then you can share everywhere else in the late am/early afternoon), excerpts, snippets and of course giveaways! Give me a reason to follow you on your multiple sites!!

Now that you know more about tsū and how it works, I hope you'll join and we can be friends! I truly think this is a great opportunity for all and can be a alternative to FB. As with any website that is growing, tsū will certaining be adding features similar to Pages or Groups and websites like Google and Wordpress (and others) will begin creating apps/widgets/patches to be able to autopost on tsū as well. Until then, GROW your AUDIENCE!!! Focus on how tsū differes from the other social media platforms and ENGAGE!!!

Here is the invitation for tsū again. See you there!  Great! Now that you know me over at tsū, how about you get to know some awesome authors and fabulous bloggers!!! Please letme know what you think of this post and if it helped. If you're a blogger, reviewer, author, and want to connect with others on tsū, leave your link in the comments! Don't forget to follow/friend those already listed below!

Book Review: Coming Home (The Surrender Trilogy #3) By Lydia Michaels

Coming Home 
(The Surrender Trilogy #3)
By Lydia Michaels

Blurb: 
The conclusion of the savage, sensual Surrender trilogy in which betrayal, pain, and vengeance threaten to destroy a passion between two damaged souls…

Evelyn “Scout” Keats thought she finally found her long-sought happiness in billionaire Lucian Patras. But even though Lucian has always treated her like a queen, she has discovered she is nothing more than a pawn in his own secret game.

Worse, her long-time friend and supposed shining knight, Parker Hughes has also used her for his own interests by playing a part in Lucian’s game. Everyone’s honor is suspect, and no one can be trusted. It is Scout’s worst nightmare come to life.

As she struggles to comprehend the cost of a broken heart and the value of love, she must choose, once and for all, how much her pride can endure—and how much she is willing to risk to be truly happy.

Candie's Review: 
So, so good! The ending to this trilogy was AWESOME. There was heartbreak, death and major revelations going on in this dark fairytale. Scout is seriously my hero! She was so prideful and determined to do things on her own! A remarkable heroine that finds her hero in hunky Lucian Patras. Once again, I read a Lydia Michaels book in one sitting. Her books just have that effect on me. Go out and get your copy today! You won’t be disappointed.
