Devil Speak Contest!

28 July 2009 Jackie 32

You know what….I’m tired of hearing about how “UF/PNR is unrespected due to their covers” bull that has been going on lately.  There are some GREAT stories behind these covers and people are not focusing on that.  And yes, there may be some Tramp Stampin’ going on with them, but […]

Spells & Kisses

28 July 2009 Jackie 4

Holy cow, is this not the most amazing cover ever! Seriously Nalini Singh must have bribed the right gods or something because the cover for Archangels’ Kiss is simply phenomenal. Nalini Singh posted it last night and I am not the only one who is going nuts over it.  This […]

One More Winner

28 July 2009 Jackie 4

It was brought to my attention that I didn’t announce the winner for a copy of The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes.  I seriously thought I had, that’s why it wasn’t done in the previous post, but let’s rectify that now.  The sinful winner of Lucy is…Adele, […]

Gothic Winter and So It Was

27 July 2009 Jackie 2

I love having some kind of image on each of my posts and since I don’t have any new covers to showcase, I went looking for some artwork.  My latest find this week is Asaenath and she has some pretty spectacular work.   The current piece showing is called Gothic Winter […]

Sunday Surprise!

26 July 2009 Jackie 4

Today’s Sunday Surprise is going to start a trend that’ll pop up occasionally (probably more than I originally intended).  I was originally thinking that I’ll only spotlight novels that are new to me or have recently arrived in the mail.  While I’ll still to that, I’m getting to the point […]

Carpe Corpus by R. Caine

24 July 2009 Jackie 1

The latest novel in Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series, Carpe Corpus is another great novel that completely sucked me in. In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace—until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book […]

The Demon King and I by C. Havens

24 July 2009 Jackie 5

Alright, I’ll be honest, after reading Rayna’s review, I went out and got my hands on a copy of The Demon King and I. The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient […]
