This was a Five Friday Favorites topic from a few weeks back that I didn’t participate in: Favorite Of Your Choice, and I’m choosing to share five of my favorite guest posts. It’s fun to look back in the vault sometimes 🙂
The synopsis: Suffering is worst when you’re doing it alone. But Emma’s taking Hell like an angel—even though her languishing began with having her seraph wings torn from her back. Now her worst enemy lords his body and his evil desires over her while she tries desperately to remember the words to her favorite prayer.
As Devil, Jack used to have Hell and its women humming like well-oiled machines. Too bad he’s nowhere near the place now. Stuck on Earth as a human, he must work with a ragtag team of exiled minions and half-breeds to save the angel who’s become all that matters.
Rescuing a seraph is the plan, but breaking into Hell means letting evil things out. Once they collide, minions and angels converge in the battle of the ages: good versus evil. But which side is which? Will Jack destroy the world as he fights to save Emma, his true and timeless love, from a damnation he designed?
An action-packed sequel to Crushed Seraphim, this tale reveals—time and again—what happens when the heart’s deepest desires break free. With a story both sizzling and sensual, emotional and enigmatic, Debra Anastasia invites readers to join a battle with nothing less than love on the line.
Today it’s my pleasure to share the story that Debra Anastasia wrote for the blogiversary celebration. It made me smile and laugh, and I’ll cherish it always. Thanks Debra for being such a wonderful friend as well as one of my favorite authors. I appreciate this more than I can say. Xo
I hope you all enjoyed the one year Crushed Seraphim Birthday Bash Celebration. I know I did.

O…and there’s a little teaser from the upcoming sequel…Bittersweet Seraphim…
Today I wanted to discuss and share a little of this and that…some quickie thoughts if u will. Altho I must confess I don’t normally advocate for quickies…sometimes a quickie is just what you need…for the moment 😉
Titles – When I first started doing reviews and other posts one of the hardest things for me to do was come up with a title. I knew I wanted it to be something catchy, and I wanted it to be something that would make people want to read whatever it was. Reviews don’t really lend themselves to that however, unless I want to make it so long it takes up 2 lines…Problem with that is I never liked how it looked at the top of the post. A secondary problem is that it makes the link sooooooooooooo long. I kind of gave up being creative on that, and pretty much just stick with the standard book blogger format, boring tho it may be.
It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about any of my fantasy book boyfriends…I know…shame on me! I feel incredibly fortunate that I keep discovering new ones to add to my list. See, that’s one of the many great things about fantasy boyfriends…you can have as many as you want…and I want many 😉
Lucky for you I’m the type of friend who’s willing to share my book boyfriends. I could be selfish and keep them all for myself…but that would just be wrong…right?!? Since I believe that friendship is a two way street it’s only fair that you share your discoveries with me as well. I’m a curious type of gurl so I’d love it if you left me a comment after the post and tell me who your top 3 book boyfriends are.
Today, I’m going to
drool talk about some one who has been on my radar for awhile now. He made my top 10 list for 2011, and I have no reason to think he won’t stay there. His sequel will be coming out this year *Hard Thud* and I can’t wait. Have I teased you long enough yet? Ok, ok…let’s talk about Satan_ Jack from Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia.
Jack has longish brown hair and heart melting brown eyes…le sigh…Tattoos, and muscles, and bulges…O.MY.
Tamie had changed her outfit four times. How do you dress for a date with the Devil? Jeans, a fancy dress, and a negligee all lay in a pile on her floor. It was a cloth grouping of failed disguises. She tried to remind herself that she’d asked for this. The dealer was an author named Debra Anastasia who was of questionable sanity. Satan Jack had seduced Tamie from afar. From pages. Even though his hand had never run down her cheek, her skin was branded as if it had.
Tamie was almost out of time, if he was on time that was. She slipped her negligee back on and pulled on her jeans. She tucked the flimsy satin into the pants. The resulting outfit was sexy and casual. Her doorbell rang.
Jack was early. If it was Jack. She thought briefly of calling Debra Anastasia and cancelling the whole thing. Her daydream had gone too far, here in her real world, she couldn’t entertain a man she barely knew.
She stumbled down the stairs and decidedly past the telephone. Her curiosity had her by the neck. Or breasts. Or anything. She looked at her front door. Smoke was seeping in the sides like an impatient cloud was waiting on the opposite side. Tamie glanced in the mirror above her fireplace. Her hair was wild from all her quick changes, but she refused to pat it down. It fit her actions, reckless and daring.
She strode confidently to the door, unlocked it, and swung it open.
WoW! Another week that’s jam packed with all kinds of goodies for you here at Bookish Temptations.
Might as well start the New Year off right… right?!?
I promised you big news…huge even…Ready?!?
Ya gotta make the #jump…
One of my favorite things to discuss here…other than my fantasy boyfriends are great quotes, scenes, and passages from my favorite books. I do this because I’m hoping for one of two reactions.
1) That I spur the interest of someone who hasn’t read the book they come from enough so that they’ll go read the book.
2nd) To bring back good memories for those who have read and enjoyed them.
Most of the books I choose to read nowadays don’t come from the big publishing houses. They are books not readily available in places like Barnes and Noble, or even from your local library. There is so much talent out there that needs your help and support. I really hope that you’ll take a look at the smaller publishing companies like Omnific and TWCS if you haven’t already.
When you find an author(s) you love make sure you spread the word. Recommend, review, list, tag, rate. You don’t have to have a blog to do any of those things. You can do it on Goodreads, Amazon, Twitter…
Do the authors appreciate it? YES! They do!
I promised you great passages didn’t I? Well what are you waiting for? Make the jump and read…O by the way…most of the ones I chose are …erm…spicy. Did you bring your fan with you?
