And, under what circumstance? Date? Drinks? Dinner? Shopping? Something else?

MUST READ and on Sale NOW!

My favorite series of 2014 was Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting, and if by chance you haven’t read it yet this is the perfect time to do so, because the first book is on sale right now for just 99 pennies!

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.

Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.

But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…

Thirsty Thursdays: Favorite Smut Writers

This weeks Thirsty Thursday topic is: Favorite Smut Writers. Now I have to confess to you that the term smut is not a favorite of mine. For me personally it has a negative connotation not a positive one. Even using the term erotica these days seems kind of weird if what you’re really meaning is just a book that has graphic sex scenes in it. I’m all for those by the way…as long as they’re well written and not overly repetitive.

Elena’s Picks: First Encounters… (#2)

Some of the scenes I enjoy the most in books are those ones where the two characters lay eyes on each other or get to talk for the first time. I love seeing their emotions, what goes through their mind when they stare at the other person or try not to do so, sometimes failing miserably. It’s also interesting to see how their relationship progresses, since that very first encounter…

Also, if the first meeting between the characters is well written, the interest of the reader is definitely piqued, and they’ll want to keep reading the story to see how things turn out…

In THIS post I shared with you some of this kind of scenes, taken from books I love. And here are more first encounters that I find absolutely intriguing and beautiful, especially considering what happens next… 😉
