Friday the 13th

Hey Book Lovers

Today will cause a lot of stress and worry for a lot of superstitious people across the world. I often sway back to the con of Friday of the 13th then I sway to my life again.

When I was younger I use to avoid black cats, ladders, magpies and other bad Friday the 13th stuff. I use to wear all my lucky necklaces and bracelets to bring my good luck.

I soon realised how foolish I was being and stopped. I just treated Friday the 13th like every other day. But when it comes to assessments or exams I normally say I'll fail them so I don't jinx them. I normally pass my assessments or exams if I do that.

It's hard to break old habits like - smoking, drinking, superstition and insulting yourself.

So how about you? 
Do you have any wacky superstitions? 
Or do you find it all ridiculous?

Vampire Tuesday!

Hey Book Lovers!

It's Vampire Tuesday!

They've burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.

Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.

Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defences and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.

When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah's master keep them apart forever?

William Dark is a monster—a vampire who feeds on blood and fear. He is exactly what Savannah Daniels needs. A year ago, Savannah’s twin brother and his wife were brutally murdered. Savannah swore a vow of vengeance against the man, the beast, that killed him. A beast that is now after her. Savannah needs William's help in order to keep her vow. She must convince him to transform her, to give her the kiss of the vampire, so that she will be strong enough to defeat the killer that is on her trail. 

Savannah and William enter into an unholy alliance: He will transform her and see that she receives her justice. In return, she must be his companion, his mate, for eternity. But Savannah soon realizes that there is more at stake than just her life. Because once she tastes William’s kiss, she knows that she may be in jeopardy of losing her heart as well. 

And she will have to put all of her trust, all of her faith, into the hands of a man who lost his soul centuries ago…

So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop–sided eater for all eternity.

Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either...After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? 

And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...

That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert - he's the main course! Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sign of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Her mother thinks she has the perfect solution, and serves up the therapist on a silver platter (or at least a wrought iron bed). Of course it doesn't hurt that this psychologist has a delicious looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that? 

Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly - once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor find true love with a hemophobic vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite. 

I hope you have enjoyed Vampire Tuesday! :D

You can so tell that I'm very excited, right? lol

Shifter Monday

Hey Book Lovers!

It's Shifter Monday!!! :D

A heat wave isn’t the only thing making London too hot for lawyer Kim. She’s been spending each night with a man who sets her body and heart on fire. The problem? He’s a man that always sprouts black fur and purrs, and he’s only a dream. Walking into work on the hottest day of the year, the last thing she expects is to meet Erik, a man who sends her temperature soaring and who resembles her dream guy exactly.

A black panther shape-shifter, Erik Blackwell has been searching for his mate for twenty-seven years. The visions they share each night are getting hotter but finding her is proving impossible as he’s never seen her face. That is, until it turns out she’s working as his lawyer on his contract negotiations with his brother, Alistair.

Kim can’t deny her attraction to Erik. The heat she feels with him is intense and it’s only a matter of time before they surrender to their carnal desires.

When Kim discovers Erik's secret, will she turn her back on him, or will she complete the mating and become like him so they can be together forever?

Melanie is a twenty-five year old chemist who has spent all of her adult life slaving at school. With her PhD in hand, she's to start her dream job, but before she does, her friend persuades her to relax and try to live again. A blind date set up through her friends seems like the perfect solution. Melanie can take one night away from the lab and let her inner vixen out on a fixed blind date - a chance to get crazy with a perfect stranger. The gorgeous hunk she's to meet exceeds her wildest dreams – but he is more than what he appears and Melanie's analytical mind goes into overdrive.

Kade, a slightly older werewolf (at over one hundred years), needs a night way from the Pack. Too many responsibilities and one near miss with a potential mate made Kade hide in his work, the only peace he can find. His brother convinces him to meet the sexy woman for a one night of fun. What could it hurt? But when he finds this woman could be his mate, can he convince her to leave her orderly, sane world and be with him and his wolf-half, for life?

 A trip to Moscow brings Siberian werewolf, Dmitry Volkov, and his pack members out of hiding. He’s looking for answers to the pack’s breeding problems. But he never expected to find them in the delectable Violet Anderson. With rogue werewolves causing problems in the pack, can he bring a fragile human woman home as his mate?
Wildlife photographer Violet Anderson is stopping in Moscow, before she goes on assignment to shoot the elusive Russian Gray Wolf. When she meets Dmitry at a local hotspot, the sparks fly. The animal magnetism tells her she might have just met the man of her dreams. But Violet has a couple of secrets of her own, and following a wounded animal to its lair has never been a safe thing to do.

Nothing will stop a wolf once he's found his mate...not even her own doubts.

After her skulk abandoned her four years ago, Samantha knew she would never truly be wanted. When she accidentally stumbles into a wolf town and is asked by their premier to stay, she believes it's the novelty of an arctic fox motivating him. She knows she'll be on her own again once he tires of her.

Jason finds himself pulled to Samantha from the moment she faints in his arms. His wolf is calling to him, telling him he's found their mate and the heat he feels for Samantha is impossible to resist. But his little fox is loaded down with emotional baggage and doesn't believe she's worthy of love. Can he overcome her fears? Or will pack jealousies and the local foxes convince her she doesn't belong with him before he has a chance?

A Seductive Nighttime World. . .
Dr. Emily Drake's psychotherapy patients tend to be a little unusual. Instead of midlife crises and mother fixations, Emily treats vampires with blood phobias and sex-demons looking for meaningful relationships. But healing these powerful beings requires an important rule: Never trust a shifter. Especially not one like Detective Colin Gyth, whose gold-flecked eyes and predatory air make Emily realize how much she longs to lose control. . .

A Dark And Dangerous Hunger. . .
Colin can't believe the doctor he has to work with on the Night Butcher murder case is the one person who could expose his true identity as a wolf shifter. Smart and sexy, Emily brings out the alpha male in Colin, unleashing a wild desire that takes them both over the edge. . .. But in the shadows, the Night Butcher waits, eager to spill Emily's blood and taste her terror. And he'll use any means to destroy her, including the one person she has grown to trust. . .

Sexy Saturday!

Hey Book Lovers

Welcome to the first Sexy Saturday of April! So this month I thought I would do something a little different. Something more sexier but with a Scottish twist to it!

As you all know I'm from Scotland and every Scottish Lass loves a man in a kilt. There is nothing sexier than seeing your man in a kilt and wondering is he wearing underwear or is he a True Scots Man? I know what your all thinking right now, what is a True Scots man. Well A True Scots man is a guy who doesn't wear underwear under his Kilt, he just goes commando.

Everytime I got to a wedding or to a Pipe band day, I always guess if the men are True Scots Men or not. 6 times out of 10 I get told to stop preving up the men lol!

But my point is you can not stop yourself from checking them out! Have a guess yourself at the photos below and see if you can spot the True Scots Men or not :)

Here are two of my favourite Scottish actors of all time - John Barrowman and David Tennant. And they are BOTH in kilts! *drools then faints*

Sooooo I'm guessing a lot of you will be forcing your men into kilts tonight? *wiggles eyebrows*  Make sure they are True Scots men and also tell them it's not a skirt it's a kilt :) I hope I have converted most of you to the Scottish Side of the Force and if so then you get a cookie *giggles*

Happy Saturday all! :D

The Happy Birthday Bloghop

Hey Book Lovers! :D 

I love and hate birthdays! I love other peoples birthdays because I can spoil them rotten + I can go out drinking with them and have a great night. When it's my birthday, I hate it because I dislike the attention and because the people I love aren't there. But lately I've noticed no one comes to my birthday piss ups and it's annoying because I make the effort to go to their parties. 

When I turned 21 last year, I invited 35 of my friends for a piss up but only 4 "friends" turned up. I was so disappointed but I ended up having a great night.

Now that I will be turning 22 in May, I have arranged to go to Newcastle to see Under the Influence gig. I created a facebook group and invited all my friends and some cousins too - 22 folks. The only people that will be going is myself and my friend Sara.  And that just shows how loved I truly am. 

So the reason I am talking about birthdays is because I have joined Carrie Ann Ryan's Bloghop. This is my first Bloghop....and I hope I'm doing it right lol Well, each author is giving away a prize at their blog. AND we're giving away TWO grand prizes.

1) A Kindle Touch
2) A $60 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card

I will be giving away Toucan of Scotland Sterling Silver earrings to my winner for answering this very simple question.

What was your worst Birthday ever?
