Upcoming Events

Heart Book on DeskA ton has happened since I started this blog on February 6, 2012. In September alone I have attended a wedding and a funeral. Our lives just get busier and the days go by faster. I can’t believe it is almost October!

I can’t believe I have finished my first novel! I have edited it and finally submitted my novel! I’m hoping to hear back from the publisher sometime in October! We shall see 🙂

I’m a person who likes to do some planning ahead. Of course with my Master’s degree coming to a close I have been horrifically busy! But I wanted to blog today about NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month which takes place in November every year. For anyone who hasn’t heard of this event and you are a writer I highly suggest participating. It’s 50,000 words in 30 days. The main website is: http://www.nanowrimo.org/. There are also local chapters for many states and cities. I suggest hooking up with them to find out if there are writing day events in your local areas.

So start planning out those novels but no cheating, don’t start writing until November!

I may also be hosting my first author in November so keep an eye out for my first author hosting event!


Phoenix Rising by Theo Fenraven

Phoenix Rising Cover

Title: Phoenix Rising

Author: Theo Fenraven

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Copyright: 2012

ISBN: 978-1-61372-607-5

Format: eBook

Genre: M/M, Phoenix, Mystery/Suspense, Contemporary Fantasy

Rating: ✭✭✭✭

Romance Level: ♥♥♥

Description: New York City homicide detectives Artemis Gregory and Rachel Wayland are first on the murder scene of a beautiful young gay man, the third victim of a serial killer dubbed the Moon Killer by the department. Their investigation leads them to Talis Kehk, charismatic lead singer of the rock group Phoenix Rising. As the next full moon approaches, Artemis and his partner uncover clues that lead straight to Talis—even as Talis, exhibiting behavior Artemis finds strange indeed considering the circumstances, uses every means possible to keep Artemis close.

Artemis could never fall in love with a murderer, could he? Innocent or not, Talis has a secret… and it’s about to change Artemis’s world forever.

 

Review: Artemis is a hard-as-nails New York cop working with his partner, Rachel, to solve murders of young gay men around the city. Talis Kehk is a lead singer to the band Phoenix Rising but has to keep the secret that he is the real phoenix.

From previous posts you may know I'm not a huge fan of sex with others after the love interests have met. I like my monogamy. But in this book the sex with another is needed and justified, even if it wasn't my favorite part of the book.

Even with the book treading on one of my pet-peeves I still found myself enjoying the story and the writing immensely. As a powerful writer, Theo Fenraven instantly pulls us into the dark world of being a New York cop. But he also writes the lighter side of being a Phoenix even though Talis has to do terrible things to survive.

Artemis and Talis are so different that at one point I actually worried that the love story would be unbelievable. But this was not the case at all. The two maybe different but Talis' weakness is only strengthened through Artimis. I soon found myself cheering for the heroes as they start working together to find love.

I hope to see more paranormal stories from Theo Fenraven (hint hint). He had indepth knowledge of the mythology of the phoenix. I recommend reading Phoenix Rising if you like an edgy fantasy with two men who are destined to change the world.


Marked by Grief by Caitlin Ricci

Marked By Grief Cover

Title: Marked by Grief

Author: Caitlin Ricci

Publisher: Silver Publishing

Format: eBook

Genre: M/M, Contemporary, Light BDSM (Not Paranormal)

Rating: ✭✭✭✭✭

Description: Kit is struggling after his brother's tragic death and the man he loves hasn't spoken to him since the funeral. When a broken Kit comes back into Jason's life, will love be enough to heal them both?

Six months after Kit lost his big brother to a drunk driver, he's alone and feeling like everyone has left him behind. He struggles to get out of bed, to feed himself, to talk to his parents. Worst of all the man that he loves, his brother's best friend, hasn't spoken to him since the funeral.

Jason always assumed he'd have time to tell Kit his feelings someday, after the younger man had more experience and maturity. Bear's death changed all of that. He isolated himself, thinking he was giving Kit space to heal. He couldn't have imagined how wrong he was.

When a broken Kit comes back into Jason's life, will love be enough to heal them both?

 

Review: Kit is a broken man after his brother, Bear, dies in a terrible car accident and one that Kit doesn't think he should have survived. Kit slowly starts to fall down a rabbit hole he can't pull himself out of even to save his life.

Jason is just as broken up because Bear was his best friend. He decides to throw himself into his work as a tattoo artist. He wants nothing more than to help Kit but thinks that his best friend's brother just needs space despite the warnings that Kit needs help.

The story is dark from the beginning and Caitlin Ricci's writing is both haunting and moving throughout the entire book. Ricci's writing pulls you into the pain and doesn't let you go. The grief the two of them feel for the loss of Bear is heartbreaking from page one.

But through all of the pain comes the power of love. Kit and Jason work together to start the healing process and learn to live again.

This book was well written and very powerful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves two sexy men struggling with loss with a sprinkle of kinky sex.

Description: Nobody realizes better than Shane that he has no real future. As a Leopard, he's destined to live alone and be reviled by his fellow feline shifters. Instead of letting that hurt him, Shane just throws himself into his work as the coalition's top assassin. A job that his breeding makes him perfect for. He tells himself that he doesn't need anyone else–that he's fine living a solitary life. Then one, brief encounter with a bratty, Panther shifter named, Trevor, changes everything. Now all Shane can think about is the Panther and how to get the man back in his bed. The only problem is Trevor hasn't given Shane so much as a second glance since their one time together. A situation that frustrates and intrigues Shane even more. Trevor has always enjoyed playing the field. With so many sexy temptations at his disposal, he doesn't see why he should have to settle for the same warm body in his bed night after night. While the sex with Shane had been great, Trevor is determined to put the encounter behind him. A task that's not as easy as it would seem. Not when every night he continues to dream of the Leopard. Or how, whenever they're in the same room, Trevor can't stop himself from wanting to reach out and caress the Leopard. Trevor knows that there can never be anything between them and resolves to put his desires behind him. Then Shane needs help on one of his assignments and he turns to Trevor. The mission proves more dangerous than either one realizes. They soon find themselves fighting for their lives. Will they be able to learn to trust each other in time to save themselves, or will their past doubts destroy them?

 

Review: Shane is determined to be on his own knowing the lonely life of being a Leopard. Trevor has decided to try and forget his one quickie with the Leopard shifter and move on. But the two can't stop thinking about each other and are determined to have each other at least one more time.

Shane has been one of my favorite character throughout the series and I knew I would love his story when it finally came out. I was not disappointed, I loved this assassin's story! The best part is Shane still remains his dark self even as he learns to love and what it means to have a mate.

Stephani Hecht's writing has you pulled into her world of sexy shifters in the first sentence. Her writing has you turning the page again and again in hopes that the Shane and Trevor will finally be together. She paints a dark canvas of a broken assassin who wants nothing more than to claim his sexy Panther. Then she leaves us breathless with a pulse racing cliff hanger! Thankfully book 10 is out. 😉

Trevor and Shane's story is breathtaking and dark. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a dark assassin meeting a light heart.
