Meeting My Favorite Author, J.R. Ward

Guys! Sometimes someone does something so unexpectedly, amazingly wonderful for you that it’s hard to believe. Even days later, it still doesn’t feel real. And that happened to me this past Saturday. Selfie of me and Jen on the teeny tiny plane to Cincinnati… I was attending the J.R. Ward Q&A event in Cincinnati with my girl Jennifer L. Armentrout. We were SUPER DUPER excited, because we were getting to see JR *and* we’d done an awesome signing and Q&A of our own the night before and we had a great turn-out and the readers who came out were total awesomesauce! Pics from our signing: And, then, a whole series of CRAZY AMAZING things happened once we got in the door of JR’s event: J.R. Ward’s assistant LeElla came running over to ask if I was Laura Kaye because she’d read Hard As It Gets after JRW did for the...

Review: Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands

Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands (Argeneau #20) Paranormal Romance February 18, 2014 Avon Reviewed by Helyce Divine has been on the run her whole adult life.  Having been kidnapped as a child, she’d been compelled by her abductors to believe certain things that ultimately were not true.  Things she never questioned.  When she was able to get away, she did-but had been forced to run believing that her true family would never take her back; her family being the very well known Argeneau clan. The head of the family, her Uncle Lucian, had never stopped looking for her.  Unfortunately, when she is caught on surveillance video helping a known rogue, it becomes a different kind of hunt. Marcus Notte has spent his life taking care of others.  He never minded, always took it seriously, and formed wonderful, long lasting relationships because of it.  But as his charges find their...

Laura Kaye Blog Blitz

Q&A WITH LAURA KAYE HARD AS YOU CAN is your second book in the "Hard Ink" series (after USA Today bestseller, HARD AS IT GETS). What can readers look forward to? Readers can look forward to tons of sexy alpha male goodness, awesome bromance between the Hard Ink men, more antics from the Hard Ink puppy, and another great love story between Shane and Crystal. But readers should also be ready for a book that is darker, more intense, and more emotional. This book pushed me to emotional places that were tough as a writer, and might be tough for readers, too. But I think that just makes the payoff at the end so much sweeter! Describe Shane and Crystal. What are their best traits? What are their weaknesses? Shane and Crystal are such an amazing couple to me. They’re each exactly what the other needs. Shane’s best traits are...

Highland Shift (Highland Destiny Series, #1)

Okay, firstly, this is a good book. It's got a good plot, and good characters and a good basis for a great story. It was the execution I have a problem with, which is making me so weary of self-published books on Amazon. The story lacks polish. It's rushed. Some details are left out or not explained very well, which leave you searching back through pages to find what you must have missed, only to discover that said details were never there. A good example of this is the end of the car scene when they're leaving the airport, and Elena's first kiss with Foalan. There's nothing explained after the kiss ends and he exits the car toward the hotel, walking away and disappearing. The next chapter begins immediately after, with the story of how she had gotten the house in Scotland in the first place, ending up with more...
