Yo Ho Ho & GOT

September 19, 2017

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day to all me mateys!

After season 7 of Game of Thrones finished a few weeks ago, I rewatched all the previous seasons in a furious glomfest. It was cool picking up little bits of info that I’d either forgotten or not noticed before.

I’m now reading the books for the first time and I’ve finished A Game of Thrones and am a couple of days into A Clash of Kings. I’m loving them!

Recent Reads

I recently read and loved In Bed With a Highlander, Seduction of a Highland Lass, & Never Love a Highlander by Maya Banks. The three novels make up her McCabe Trilogy.

What books have you enjoyed lately?

Game of Thrones

April 4, 2013

Since I don’t have a cable package that gets HBO, I’ve listened to people talk about Game of Thrones for the past two seasons. It sounded fantastic and the few clips I saw only confirmed my initial impression. Well, Showcase, a channel I do get, is now playing the first season every Friday. I’m soooo loving it. And knowing some of the stuff that’s going to happen hasn’t diminished my enjoyment one iota.

Even cooler, my sister has read the books and watched the series from the beginning. I have so much fun emailing her after each episode to discuss what’s transpired and ask questions. It’s awesome.

When next I visit her I’ll be able to catch up too since she has the first two seasons on DVD and is DVRing the third. I’ve been informed that I’m to have a viewing marathon during my vacation.

Oh the hardship. }:)

I *Heart* These Books

April 29, 2009

Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series and Larissa Ione’s Demonica series are two of my new favorites. I’ve read two in the Immortals After Dark world now–there are presently seven books in the series–and I’m SO looking forward to reading more. After inhaling the first three books in the Demonica world–there are three at the moment, with more on the way–I can’t wait until book four comes out.

What are some of your new favorites?

Passion Unleashed

April 5, 2009

Passion Unleashed

Passion Unleashed is the third book in Larissa Ione’s Demonica series. Even though it’s the first Demonica book I’ve read, I had no trouble following the story. I SO want to read the first two. Wraith is a delectable hero who’s challenged by the fabulous Serena, a woman unlike any he’s ever known. With spectacular worldbuilding and a host of incredible characters, Passion Unleashed is a superb paranormal romance. I loved it so much that I know this series is destined to become one of my favorites.

Here’s the book description:


Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter-and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she’s been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn’t all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she’s finally met the one man she cannot resist.


Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe-her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: He’s falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.
