Locklear Library: The Prince by Sylvain Reynard

Morgan and I recently benefited from good book release timing.

Especially the innocent.
Blood will be spilled.

Made with Repix (

Who doesn’t love a guy who reads? I mean c’mon. That is sexy, stunning, appealing and a total turn on! ;) You wouldn’t like a guy who is just purely beautiful physically, no?

So here are some of my favorites, although I love everything posted on their page… and don’t miss the witty snarky captions that gives you all the feels. *wink*
