School’s In Contest Winners Revisited

20 October 2012 Jackie 2

I said the School’s In winners had 72 hours to contact me, and well, it’s been a couple of weeks. So everyone has had plenty of time to send me their info. So for those who haven’t, it’s time to draw some new names. As I said initially, with all […]

JRWard-Lover Unbound

Lover Unbound by J. R. Ward

19 October 2012 Casey 1

Have I claimed that each of the other brothers from the Black Dagger Brotherhood was my favorite brother of all? Well, I lied. V is, and always will be, my absolute favorite. Lover Unbound by JR Ward blew me away. It was dark and gritty yet emotional with all of the […]

OCunning-Double Time

Double Time by Olivia Cunning

18 October 2012 Jackie 5

The third novel in Olivia Cunning’s Sinners series has left me a little conflicted.  I loved finally seeing Trey being center staged in Double Time, but I will be honest (as I always am)…I was a little confused.  While Double Time was a fantastic read and kept me glued to […]

Contest: Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by Anne Rice

17 October 2012 Jackie 18

Thanks to the wonderful people at Penguin, I have a fabulous contest for everyone today. With all the buzz going on about Fifty Shades, the erotic genre has been getting some much deserved attention and new novels have been popping up everywhere. However, the genre has been around for awhile […]

Angel’s Ink by Jocelynn Drake

16 October 2012 Nicole 1

I LOVED Jocelynn Drake’s Dark Days series and was sad to see it end but was super excited when she announced her new series.  The first book in this new series is Angel’s Ink and it was fabulous.  Jocelynn’s writing keeps improving with each book and I loved that the concept for […]

Today, I would like to welcome Jocelynn Drake to Literary Escapism as we celebrate the release of Angel’s Ink, the first full length novel in her new Asylum Tales series. Buyer beware . . . Looking for a tattoo—and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop […]

APang-Trace of Moonlight

A Trace of Moonlight by Allison Pang

15 October 2012 Nicole 2

I so love Allison Pang’s Abby Sinclair series…and I am sure Jackie heard me squee all the way in Michigan when she told me she’d received the ARC for A Trace of Moonlight.  Even Allison would likely tell you that I’ve been begging, pleading and otherwise being obnoxious since I […]
