Book BIN Tuesday - Burning Up

I'm a huge Susan Andersen fan, so I'm really looking forward to her newest book, Burning Up. It sounds great:

Though it's been years since the infamous Macy O'James stepped foot in Sugarville, Washington, everyone remembers what she supposedly did. The tiny town is still buzzing about her crime and lack of punishment.

Now back to lend her family a hand, Macy vows to hold her head high—especially at her high school reunion. But forget about the hottest man in Sugarville escorting her. Though she and fire chief Gabriel Donovan generate enough sparks to burn down the town, he's a law-abiding, line-toeing straight arrow. So not her type.

But maybe—just maybe—he can change her mind about that.


:) Gonna run right out and Buy It Now!

Book BIN Tuesday - Primal Pleasure

Ooh! This one looks good!

He will have his revenge—one wicked seduction at a time.

Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 3

Emma is used to getting dragged into her twin sister’s magical messes, but this time her predicament is more than a minor annoyance. She’s chained to a cat shifter that her sister encased in a curse of stone. Worse, the unfortunate gargoyle’s waking up. And her sister’s not there to take the heat.

After a century suspended in stone, Cian would do anything to get his hands on the sorceress who put him there. Strangely, his dreams of revenge turn into an animal hunger to put his hands all over her—in every delightfully wicked way imaginable.

Never as talented as her sister, Emma doesn’t trust her own magic. But for now she must let Cian believe she’s the culprit in order to strike a bargain: to permanently lift the curse in exchange for his tracking skills to find her missing sister. The longer she is near him, though, the closer she comes to surrendering much more than her body to the brutal warrior.

As their attraction catches fire, Emma dreads what could happen when he learns the truth. If he will sacrifice her to break the spell…or fight for a love that goes beyond animal instinct.

Product Warnings
This book contains adult language, violence, bone-melting explicit sex and a stubborn alpha male who likes his revenge served hot, wild and strong enough to bring him to his knees.


I just love the warnings on Samhain books, don't you? So why not run on over to My Bookstore and More and Buy It Now?

Book BIN Tuesday - A Little Bit Wild

Ooh! A new Victoria Dahl book is out now! Here are the deets:

He is not what she had in mind.

Jude Bertrand is not an excellent dancer. Nor does he wear the most fashionable coats. But when Marissa York's brother approaches him, desperate to preserve Marissa's tenuous reputation, Jude does prove heroic enough to offer to marry the girl. In fact, the union should more than make up for his lack of social graces - and his own scandalous past...

But minds change...

Marissa knows that betrothal to the son of a duke - even one as raw and masculine as Jude - will save her from ruin, but that doesn't mean she's happy about it. Soon, though, she finds that Jude has a surprisingly gentle touch - and plans to use it to persuade Marissa that their wedding day cannot come soon enough...

Sounds fabulous, no? I love Dahl's books, both contemporary and historical, and I can't wait to read this one. How about you? Why not head out and Buy It Now?

Inspiration Friday - Fanvid Edition

Today's episode of Inspiration Friday is dedicated to all the fans who tirelessly work to create new and fabulous videos in honor of their favorite shows/movies/etc. Yes, the fanvid artists!

I admit it, I love fanvids. Especially ones that are extra creative and well-made, with edits that are snappy and lyrics that match the action onscreen. I thought I'd share one that really works for me, based on a show I've barely watched. Sometimes you don't even have to watch the show to enjoy the fanvid!

Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and on a related note: I'm also blogging over on Nine Naughty Novelists, on the topic of fanfic. Gee, wonder what I've been thinking about lately? :) Drop by and say hello!

Book BIN Tuesday - Infamous

Squee! Suzanne Brockmann has a new book out!

This one isn't part of her Troubleshooters series - the next (and last for a while), Izzy's book, isn't out until 2011 - but it looks like a fabulous one as well.

Here are the deets:

When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly know that she would not only get a front row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus, but that she would innocently witness something that would put her life in danger. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie -- and her world -- completely upside down…

A.J. Gallagher didn’t crash the set in dusty Arizona to rub elbows with Hollywood’s elite. Unable to ignore ghosts from the past that refuse to stay buried, A.J. came to put an end to the false legend that has tarnished the reputation of his family. But when he confronts Alison, sparks fly. And when she becomes targeted by ruthless criminals, suddenly she and A.J. must face the intense attraction that threatens to consume them, in order to survive the danger that threatens their very lives.


Sounds great, doesn't it? So why not head on out to the bookstore and Buy It Now?
