Locklear Library: The Prince by Sylvain Reynard

Morgan and I recently benefited from good book release timing. As we were finishing up our year-long read of Dragonfly in Amber, we realized we would have the perfect opportunity to read the first novella in The Florentine Series before moving on to the next book in the Outlander saga. We read through The Prince in just a couple of evenings and found it an intriguing introduction to the underworld of Florence, Italy.

In case you haven’t read one of our Locklear Library posts before here is how it works. This will be a written conversation between us about our experiences and impressions of the book. We do our best not to disclose spoilers, but we will be talking about the story, and we have no idea what we’ll be asking each other about until now.

Jennifer will go first…

Locklear Library: Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon

It’s hard to believe but, it’s been a year since our last Locklear Library installment. We really enjoy this segment and have wanted to do much more with it than we have; but therein lies the problem. Those Outlander books are big!

We read books together, which is to say that Jennifer reads them aloud while Morgan plays stick figure golf on his phone. Dragonfly In Amber, the second book in the Outlander series, is big enough to be mistaken for a family bible and we also had our hands full with the editing and publishing or our own novel. Needless to say, it was a long year that went by in a short time but during that time we have made a ton of Outlander (and OutMANder) friends.

To refresh your memory (and ours), this post will be a written conversation between us about our experiences and impressions of the book. We do our best not to disclose spoilers, but we will be talking about the story, and we have no idea what we’ll be asking each other about until now.

Morgan will go first…

Blogiversary Blowout: Amelia and Tamie Interview Kristen Ashley

Today I’m very happy to welcome Kristen Ashley to Bookish Temptations. She’s one of my and Tamie’s favorite authors. Just FYI, this my first time interviewing an author so I’m really glad and excited that it’s Kristen fraking Ashley. She’s that author that can do no wrong for me. I love the crap out of  every freaking book she writes, as you guys may noticed when you read my reviews of her books (totally fangirling here). I hope you guys enjoy this interview as much as we do.

PS: I didn’t pass out when I got the news that I’m gonna interview Kristen Ashley. Just squee-ing and dancing. You know, like any normal fans.
