Just a few random thoughts and pictures

An open letter..

AKA – Something I think authors REALLY need to know.

It’s quite simple really. Readers have preferences, and those authors who choose to ignore this, WILL lose sales as a result. Apparently though, some haven’t gotten the message yet….

So, erm, is anyone there?

I haven’t posted anything in far too long, sorry folks.

I also haven’t done a book rec/review in an absolute age, but, if there’s anyone still interested in hearing about what I’ve recently read and my thoughts on it, here’s the latest instalment….

Note, all my reviews tend to contain at least minor spoilers, though I do try to keep them to a minimum…..

Book details (actually it’s a series this time): Blasphemy series by Laura Kaye (links below go to Amazon, but it is available elsewhere) This series isn’t clean, in fact a fan might be required, even if it’s snowing outside.
My Rating: Overall 5 stars. (though some books in the series might not appeal to individual tastes as each book covers a slightly different BDSM theme, and not all are simple M/F combinations)
Summary: The series centres around 12 Doms who got together to buy an old church, and after restoring it, now run a BDSM club there. As you’d expect each Dom has his own tastes/preferences so each book has a different “kink”…

I actually stumbled on this pretty much by accident, after grabbing a freebie box-set. It didn’t take long for me to go hunting for more though..

Spoilers ahead, though I’ve tried to keep them to a minimum…. Continue reading

Random DT, just because….

Well actually it’s mostly because I haven’t posted much of anything lately and I feel rather bad about that.

So, here’s some DT pics, to brighten up a rather cold day…. Continue reading

E-book offer….

Continuing my random e-book review/offer posts, this one is a very good deal, if you’re a fan of the alpha billionaires genre.

This time it’s an assorted authors box-set, featuring 12 books for less than the cost of just one of the books it contains…..

Men of the Zodiac Boxed Set
12 months. 12 men. 12 fantasies come true.

Success, power, and money…these men have it all. Whether you swoon for a crowned prince, melt for a real estate mogul, or get hot and bothered over a self-made powerhouse, the Men of Zodiac bundle will indulge all of your fantasies.

Impulse Control by Amanda Usen
The Millionaire’s Deception by Wendy Byrne
The Millionaire’s Forever by Sonya Weiss
Ten Days in Tuscany by Annie Seaton
The Millionaire Daddy Project by Roxanne Snopek
Revenge Best Served Hot by Jackie Braun
The Prince’s Runaway Lover by Robin Covington
The Colonel’s Daughter by Amy Andrews
One Night with the Billionaire by Sarah Ballance
The Greek Tycoon’s Tarnished Bride by Rachel Lyndhurst
Blurring the Lines by Marisa Cleveland
Her Sworn Enemy by Theresa Meyers

Each book is also available individually, though they’re currently priced at around three times what this box-set will cost you, so even if you only love one or two out of the 12 (and having read less than half of them so far I don’t see how that could happen, since I’m loving them) you’re still getting a bargain.

Current price on Amazon UK is £0.99, and it’s a similar price on Amazon US. Enjoy.

Free e-books….

It’s clear from the response to my occasional book reviews that some of you share my tastes at times, despite my tastes being rather varied. That being the case, I thought I’d pass along the details of a couple of free books, in case any of you fancy grabbing them….. Continue reading

Predictable and disappointing…

For those still interested in hearing about what I’ve recently read and my thoughts on it, here’s another instalment…and as you can no doubt tell from the title of this post, it definitely wasn’t a great book.

Note, all my reviews tend to contain at least minor spoilers, though I do try to keep them to a minimum…..

Book details: Caroline and the Captain: A Regency Novella by Maggi Andersen (link goes to Amazon UK, though it can of course be found elsewhere) This one isn’t exactly clean, though there’s no overt smut.
My Rating: 2 stars.
Summary: Captain Nicholas Bonham of Wellington’s Peninsular Regiment, the 52nd Light Infantry, returns from fighting the Napoleonic wars to see his brother laid to rest. A skilled rider, George’s death remains a mystery, as does the parlous state of his finances. Debenham Park must be sold unless Nicholas can find a swift solution.
George’s former fiancée, Miss Caroline Mirringham, harbors a secret. She has trusted no man except her father and George, and now considers her future to be a desolate one. When her father proposes that Caroline marry Nicholas, she is filled with dread. The captain is nothing like his amiable brother. He looks altogether too strong and harsh. He would demand far more from her than she could give. Continue reading
