When the band hits it big, Kiera and Kellan must ask themselves: Can their love for each other survive the constant pressures of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together. Fame comes with a price-but will it cost Kiera and Kellan everything?
One of the many things I love about reading is finding new and up-and-coming authors. If you enjoy reading, I implore you to join Goodreads. It’s a great site to keep track of what you want to read, and recommend to your friends, as well as find great books to read. Hey, we are on there too. That’s how I found out about this wonderful book and author. Losing It by Cora Carmack. I provided the link to Amazon, where you will see that the Kindle version is available now. The paperback will be available 2/26.
Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black’s been catching her z’s in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there’s more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can’t very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she’d meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman, dead or alive.
Rich, powerful, and drop—dead gorgeous, Victor’s the perfect man for a novice neck—biter like Elvi. He’s willing to teach her everything he knows, but he’ll have to do it fast. Someone’s out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe and satisfied for all eternity.
This book is seventh in the Argeneau series, but Ms. Sands has been kind enough to write each book as a stand alone. There are reoccurring characters but you do not need to read entire series, or even in order, to get what’s going on. Of all of the books I read in this series, this one stood out for me. Find out why, after the jump.
Seven deadly sins. Seven souls that must be saved. One more no-holds- barred battle between a fallen angel with a hardened heart and a demon with everything to lose.

Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the soldier in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil.

But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charge with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin DiPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he’s good with that — until fate intervenes in the form of a tough- talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart—and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.

I will admit upfront, I was a bad fangirl. I love this series, but I will admit that I didn’t read the Insider’s Guide that included Father Mine until just recently. Now I’m kicking myself for not having read it earlier. For a short story, this one sure does pack an emotional punch. If you’ve read the other books in the series, you know that thems is big words….Ward is a brilliant marketer for Kleenex. I don’t think I’ve read one of her books and didn’t need a tissue at some point. This one had me reaching for a handful. Find out why, after the jump…

I was introduced to Jennifer Probst’s books when I read “The Marriage Bargain” ( if you’re interested you can find my review here) A novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. Heart of Steel was my second book by Probst and what a ride it was! A lovely romance made of passion, intrigue and discovery, a story where even a heart of steel can melt when it gets to experience the reality of unconditional love…
