Misguided Angel
By Melissa de La Cruz

 After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence—with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the seven gates that guard earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silverbloods.

As the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads—and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires.

By Becca Fitzpatrick

 Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

 Hell on earth.
That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous.
What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

Beautiful Darkness
By Kami Garcia, By Margaret Stohl

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.
Sometimes life-ending.
Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town's tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

Tane is a Charon, sworn to hunt and kill rogue vampires. His new assignment seems like a waste of his talents - until he catches up with the jinn he's been sent to capture. Half human, half demon, Laylah has a vulnerable streak that strikes right through to Tane's cold heart. He should be furious when she uses her powers to bind them together, preventing him from dragging her before the Commission. Instead he welcomes any reason to stay close enough to touch, to taste, to seduce...Laylah doesn't know why she was chosen to protect a child who may be the catalyst in a war between good and evil. But the mysteries of her past pale compared to the dangers approaching. Tane is devastatingly strong, breathtakingly sensual. And Laylah will have to trust in every ounce of that strength, because her enemies are drawing near, eager to destroy them both...

A Knight's Vow
By Lindsay Townsend

Ever since she was fourteen, Alyson of Olverton dreamed of marrying a brave, charismatic young knight. His name was Guillelm de la Rochelle - and his marriage proposal satisfied her deepest yearnings. But her father forbade their union, prompting Guillelm to set out for the Holy Land, breaking Alyson's innocent heart. Seven years later, the valiant knight has defied rumours of his death and returned home, having no idea that nothing is the same as when he left...Back from fighting in the crusades, Guillelm is stunned to find Alyson entrenched in his father's ancestral castle - even worse she was betrothed to his father before he died. Despite this chilling fact, Guillelm finds himself struggling to resist the temptation to seduce her. Torn between intense jealousy and overwhelming desire, he shocks them both by proposing marriage a second time, justifying that it will be easier to keep her safe if she is his bride. Little do they know, however, that there is an enemy in their very midst - one who won't rest until he destroys their chance at everlasting love...

A defiant bride-to-be tries to stage her own disappearance when she's kidnapped, and her only chance at freedom is surrendering her heart to the one man who can save her. Taraca has waited years for the time she could choose a husband and learn the pleasure of love making. When her father binds her to a man twice her age, Taraca does the only thing she can--she runs away. Instead of her freedom, she finds capture at the hands of the Kellians. Yarrow has loved Taraca from afar for years. The only thing keeping him from taking her is his blood relation to the Kellians who are feared throughout Shadowhall. But when Taraca is taken by Kellian warriors, Yarrow will risk everything to free her. Publisher Note: This book is linked to 'Tempted' although it can be read as a stand alone story.

But her peace is shattered in a heartbeat when she awakes one morning to find a total stranger in her bed. Magnificently muscled and perfectly naked, he exudes a wildness that frightens her and a haunting fear that touches her. Yet when Alex responds to his pain, she doesn't realize that this handsome savage is a creature out of myth, a wolf transformed into a man.

Silver Moon
By: T.L. Mitchell

The inhabitants of the sleepy little town called Gladys could rest at night. Wake up in the morning and go to their jobs, living their lives as normal. The police would report another animal attack and look for some wild creature capable of doing such a terrible thing.

Over time the truth will fade and turn into myths. No one would ever believe a werewolf existed. It's just a myth-right?

The Year: 2050
Location: Food Service Area onboard the starship Copernicus
Characters: Charlotte, Jax, Garreth from Blink

(I first sit down at a table with the very intelligent Garreth, of the Daridian's)

JJBC~ Can you tell us a little bit about what working with the humans is like? Do you enjoy it? Dislike it? Why
Garreth~Working with the Earth people is challenging at every turn. They’re not as advanced in every way as my people and rely too much on snap decisions. This is why their civilization will most likely never last.


Lots of stuff coming tonight and a bunch of info !

Hi all my wonder peps! I have lots of info coming to you guys tonight! I know some of this stuff you guys have been waiting on for a while *puppy eyes* saaaawie. Things have been crazy hectic lately. But I am trying to get it all back up and running. So read on down below and MAKE SURE you come back tonight!

Published: Nov 05, 2010

ISBN # 9781456331108
Websites: Author , Eirelander Publishing , ,

 Which man is her destiny? Charlotte Jackson knows everything about her small portion of the galaxy but nothing about the secrets of her heart.

When her ship is attacked by the very beings Garreth wants to save them from, Charlotte and Jax will have to put their feelings for the blue-haired alien aside and focus on saving not only themselves but the entire galaxy. What the three find at the end could be the most valuable commodity of all.

Her life is as unstable as a supernova when her ship—the Copernicus—is visited by a blue-haired alien who calls himself Garreth. He tells her he’d like to build an alliance with Earth to improve the dire problems of both their planets. As if intergalactic space negotiations weren’t complicated enough, Charlotte finds herself more than a little attracted to the man who she should be thinking about in only the most professional terms. This does nothing to make her second-in-command—and would-be lover Jax—any more relaxed about the whole cooperation.

My Thoughts


Author Sandra Sookoo Week: Day 3 - Interview

Nov 10, 2010


JJBC~How did you get into writing?
SS~I got into writing when I was a kid and needed an escape from “real” life. Creating worlds and making characters became so fascinating, I kept up with it until I finally became a published author.

JJBC~Is writing your full time job?
SS~I do try to write full time. A few years ago I was laid off from the real estate industry and decided to give “serious” writing a go. I’m now getting ready to start my fourth year in the publishing industry and can’t wait to see what happens.

JJBC~What’s a typical writing day for you like?
SS~Usually in the morning I take care of busy work (usually promo stuff) then start writing in the afternoons or evenings. A couple days a week are set aside for errands or anything else not writing related. I generally try not to write on the weekends but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.

JJBC~Do you set a daily writing goal?

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match . . . dot com! An on-line dating service is not Michelle Snow’s idea of how to find love but when the Big 3-0 hits, Michelle decides she has nothing to lose since she hasn’t brought a date home in ten years, she’s professionally burned out, and her climb up the corporate ladder has come at the expense of abandoning her sweet dream: to own a boutique cupcakery.

Todd Bracken, early 30s and a successful technology consultant, isn’t exactly a player after being off the market for ten years, and pours himself into his dual passions of martial arts and home-sweet-home renovations. Only there’s no one to come home to so he decides to give a try. Todd isn’t so sure the Internet dating scene is his thing—until a message pops up in the wee hours on a weekend night: “I like your smile.” Todd likes—a lot—the whole package that glides into a French bistro in Washington, D.C.

Will love find its way in the digital age with a You’ve Got Mail courtship when video cam kisses just aren’t enough? And when Todd challenges Michelle to not only go for her dream but let him share it, will they be able to make it happen together despite obstacles more plentiful than a shower of rainbow sprinkles?

Harvest Moon

Cursed, abused, and desperate to know her future, Dancing Cat sneaks a glimpse inside her tribe’s Sacred Bundle, a powerful source of spirit magic. Instead of the future, she sees her most powerful ancestor, Small Tree and incurs her wrath. Small Tree strips Dancing Cat of everything —her home, her identity, even her gender – and drops her in the middle of enemy lands.

Injured, and in a strange, new body, she is befriended by Bearclaw who is on a spirit quest. He offers her assistance and asks for nothing in return; a kindness Dancing Cat had forgotten existed. She struggles to weave a path around the obstacles of friendship, identity, and longing in order to survive her eventual return home to face even further punishment.

Halloween Bash: Day 7 with Author Leanna Renee Hieber

Oct 30, 2010

Hello friends!

My favourite thing about Halloween is EVERYTHING. One year, when I was a professional actress in residence at the Commonweal Theatre of Minnesota, playing Mina in Dracula, I created a month-long Halloween celebration calendar that included many activities, readings, movie nights, decorating a Halloween tree, pumpkin carving, scarecrow making, and more. That year I was crowned the Queen of Halloween by the town, and an artisan even crafted an Edward Gorey crown for me.

Winning the costume contest at Authors After Dark was a particular honour. If any of you have seen me in person, you know I take costuming VERY seriously. Dressing up as Miss Percy definitely is my favourite costume of all time. Halloween infuses everything I love into one holiday; fun with the dark side of things, a celebration of all things that are strange and beautiful, costuming, historical tradition, parties with friends and communities coming together, spooky stories, all things pumpkin related (YUM), and best of all we Gothlings get to celebrate in high style- although for we Goth kids, as the Ministry song says: “Every day is Halloween”.


Halloween Bash: Day 6 with Author Joey W. Hill

Oct 29, 2010

Halloween Bash

It’s hard to narrow down my favorite part of Halloween, because, just like Stella, it’s my favorite holiday. For one thing, I’m Wiccan, and Samhain (the other name for All Hallow’s Eve) is our New Year’s Eve, so to speak. It’s the night the Veil is thinnest between the here and now and the worlds beyond – the afterlife, the Fae worlds, all the unknown dimensions. If you step out on a Halloween night and inhale deeply, you can sense it. There’s just something special about that night.

Another favorite part for me is the trick-or-treaters themselves. Each year of course, fewer and fewer of them come out, as churches, schools and other youth outlets offer kids “safe” places to go for organized Halloween activities. Pfffft (Me blowing raspberry). Mom, Dad – stop being such pussies and let them go out in packs to trick or treat at total strangers’ houses, just like we used to do. 99.9% of us survived it, after all (lol).
