Guest Post with Donna Grant and Giveaway

Donna Grant is the bestselling, award winning author of more than twenty-five novels spanning multiple genres of romance.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold novels and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as Druids Glen, The Shields, Royal Chronicles, Sisters of Magic, Dark Sword, Dark Warriors, and her new series, Dark Kings.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, four cats, three fish, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who loves to read and travel as much as she does.

Guest Post with Author Zee Monodee and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to the blog Zee Monodee. Zee is currently on tour for her book Once Upon a Stormy Night and has stopped by the blog to chat. Before I give the floor over to Zee, lets get to know her some.

Zee is an author who grew up on a fence - on one side there was modernity and the global world, on the other there was culture and traditions. Putting up with the culture for half of her life, one day she decided she'd stand tall on her wall and dip toes every now and then into both sides of her non-conventional upbringing.

From this resolution spanned a world of adaptation and learning to live on said wall. The realization also came that many other young women of the world were on their own fence.

This particular position became her favorite when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing - her heroines all sit 'on a fence', whether cultural or societal, in today's world or in times past, and face dilemmas about life and love.

Hailing from the multicultural island of Mauritius, Zee is a degree holder in Communications Science. She is married, mum to a tween son, and stepmum to a teenage lad.

ARC Review: Anything You Want by Erin Nicholas

I have very mixed feelings about this book. On one hand I loved the hero. He was great. Witty, passionate and caring. On then on the other hand I couldn't stand the heroine. I mean it. I seriously loathed her. So when it comes to writing a review for this book I'm torn. While I was able to finish the book quite quickly, I did have a few moments where I had to put it down and walk away just out of sheer frustration.

Let me explain. Sabrina left home four years ago and hasn't looked back. She went off in pursuit of making it big in the music scene. Now broke and pregnant she wants to return home to raise her child but on the way her car breaks down and not having any other options decides to call Luke, her oldest friend and former fiance' to the rescue.

Marc and Luke have been best friends ever since Marc moved into town when they were twelve. After a terrible car accident kills all of Marc's family, Luke's family takes Marc in and raises him as Luke's brother. Marc will do anything for Luke and his family. So when he finds out Sabrina is calling for Luke he decides to intercept the call. No way is he going to let Luke fall back into the trap that is Sabrina. All she has ever done is hurt Luke by stringing him along. So you can imagine Sabrina's surprise when Marc shows up at the hotel instead of Luke.

Marc and Sabrina have a volatile relationship to say the least. Neither have really ever gotten along and when they are together they are constantly bickering. Though this time when they both see each other, the bickering somehow turns into something a bit more. Their heated words become filled with sexy innuendo's and double entendre's. Both can't deny this attraction they are feeling towards the other. But how can they act upon it when they know it will do nothing but hurts the one's they are closest with?

Once they are both home, the attraction hits them both in full force. Little touches here and there suddenly turns into sex against the wall. The chemistry between these two is electric and they both find it hard to stay away from the other. I loved their interactions with each other and I found when other parties weren't around I loved Sabrina and Marc together. I loved the witty banter back and forth. Things get heated between them quickly and I love that neither are able to deny their attraction.

What bothered me about this story was the way Sabrina was when Marc isn't around. As soon as she gets back into town the confident and independent Sabrina disappears. She once again starts stringing Luke around and I HATED that. I hated the fact that she doesn't love Luke and she knows that she doesn't and probably never will but she decides it's okay to marry him. Um what the hell. How is that even kosher? Really? Not only does she have feelings for Marc that could be turning into love but it's okay to marry someone that you don't love just because he can give your kid a home. I thought this made Sabrina seem like a total bitch and beyond selfish. And don't even get me started on Luke or her dad.

Really the only reason I found myself turning the pages is to see what Marc was up to. I instantly found a connection with him and he was just so adorable. He is battling his feelings for Sabrina because he knows how much Luke cares about her and he doesn't want to do anything that will jeopardize his and Luke's relationship. I felt so bad for Marc at times. He just wants to be happy but the one thing making him happy could potentially be the thing that ruins his whole life. Oh Marc.

All in all this book was an okay read for me. I was able to finish and I really liked Marc. The story itself was cute and sweet at times but it's still a little hard for me to get past Sabrina and the way she acted with everyone besides Marc.

Interview with Author Jennifer Malone Wright and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to the blog author Jennifer Malone Wright. Jennifer is currently on tour for her Vampire Hunter's Daughter series and has stopped by to answer a few burning questions. But before we get to the interview, lets get to know Jennifer a bit.

Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fifteen all the way down to one year, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.

When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”

In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last eleven years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.
