GALEN

Lust.
My ultimate downfall,
And demise.
I’m shackled to a life I can’t escape.
A life I never asked for.

Now, I’m trapped–soulless,
Burdened by a Watcher lurking within.
He wants out, he wants her.
But I can’t let that happen,
Won’t let that happen.

She’s mine.

Somehow that doesn’t matter.
I can’t have what I crave.
What I want.
What I need.

As the Watcher fights me,
Battles for control,
I refuse to succumb.
It’s a power I’ll never relinquish.
I can’t unleash what lies beneath,
Without paying the ultimate price,
And losing her in the end.

TWO YEARS

Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

 

TWO DAYS 

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me. 

 

TWO HOURS

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession. 

 

TWO MINUTES

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

 

TWO SECONDS

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

 

TWO BREATHS 

For me to walk out the door.

 

TWO HEARTBEATS 

For it all to be over.

About the Author:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

A face in the crowd coverA Face in the Crowd

Christina Kirby

Alexis Hightower considers trust a four letter word, and she has no intention of getting serious with anyone. After all, her day job as a nurse is plenty serious enough. On one of her nights off, she attends a concert for her favorite band and ends up on stage. She never expected to meet the legendary singer in person or that he would be the one to make her question her way of life. But how do you learn to trust again when the one you want is desired by thousands?

Oliver Honeycutt has it all, success, fame, admirers, but when his family is faced with the unthinkable, none of it matters. Stranded in Atlanta, he meets Alexis who’s unlike any woman he’s known before. As his attraction grows, plans for the future change which leaves someone desperate to keep them apart. But Oliver won’t be easily discouraged. To have a future with Alexis he’ll do whatever it takes to make her see the man behind the image.

Highland Yearning Highland Yearning _505x825

Dawn Ireland

Caden Mackay would never bed a Sutherland, let alone marry one. Bloody hell, what had possessed his twin brother to propose to one of the she-devils? And what is Caden to do with the Sutherland beauty who appears, as if by magic, in his library? The defiant intruder is the enemy, but she is unlike any woman Caden’s ever known, and her tantalizing curves and wide green eyes could tempt a monk. He must devise a way to stop the wedding. But can he stop the desire that makes him long to make Ariel Sutherland his own? 

Ariel’s life had never gone the way she’d hoped, but ending up in eighteenth century Scotland was a stretch, even for her. If not for her dog, Scruffy, she might have thought she’d walked into a romantic daydream. Especially since the object of her desire appears to be entirely too virile. But can she find her way back to her time, before her too-handsome Highlander makes her believe that love can conquer in any century?

The Collector by Nora Roberts

The CollectorThe Collector by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Nora Roberts. She’s my spirit animal. This book was enjoyable but I did find myself reading slowly, taking breaks, and picking up other books in between chapters of The Collector. Her heroine was likable, relatable, and charming, while the hero was dominant and sure of what he wanted from the get-go. Overall, I liked the intrigue and the adventure that took center stage in this book.

A Journey Home by Angela Scavone

IMG_2044

I’m thrilled to have Angela Scavone on my blog today with her new release, A Journey Home.

Angela lives in Ontario, Canada sharing her home with her father and much-loved trio of pups (and one evil cat).  She currently works for the Board of Education behind the scenes supporting and analyzing student data, however, in her spare time, apart from her avid love of story telling, she likes to read, spend time with family and friends and concoct dairy free recipes from scratch. Sometimes she wins some and sometimes she loses some – tofu, banana and peanut butter pudding we are looking at you.
You’ll always be able to find her on her Facebook or Twitter pages.
Here’s a little bit about her book. Click on the cover art above to pick up a copy for yourself! I know I’m adding it to my Want-to-read list on Goodreads.
Stephanie Tyler’s sole job is to fly overseas to war torn areas of the world to retrieve and escort the bodies of fallen soldiers back home to the United States. It is a tough and emotional job but she is honored for the privilege. Her duty also helps her to escape her past and her failed marriage.                                                                
But those flights have become increasingly more dangerous and she is forced to have a partner accompany her. Much to Stephanie’s surprise and dismay, she is partnered up with her ex-husband, Captain “D.A.” Douglas Aston.              
From the moment Captain D.A. enters the scene, he irritates her. It could have something to do with the fact he slept with her best friend while they were married. As they go on several missions together, Stephanie is forced to be courteous and professional with D.A. even though the very sight of him irritates her beyond comprehension.         
Then, Stephanie’s cheating, husband stealing, ex-best friend is killed in Afghanistan and Stephanie and D.A. must escort her body home. While executing this difficult duty, a myriad of conflicting emotions makes Stephanie ponder how short life really is . . . and to question her own ability to forgive. 

What Makes a Book Timeless?

As I work on my second novel, I find myself wondering at the idea of timelessness. Is it really possible to create a book that is timeless? More to the point, is it important to do so? Writing, by nature, is a slave to the time period the piece is set in. If I am writing something set in Victorian England I’d better make sure it is accurate and true to the time. That aspect is a given. But what about using pop culture in a novel? As a reader I waffle on this subject. Sometimes I’ll be reading and a song I like will be referenced, or a popular show or movie might be part of a conversation the characters are having. Usually, when used sparingly, this kind of thing is fun and gives me a feeling of a shared secret with the character. But, having said that, there are times when a book uses songs as a constant substitute for dialog, or perhaps the references are just too different from my own tastes. That turns me off, no matter how good the story or characters, and I immediately start to think, “Wow, this book is going to be so dated in ten years.” So what is it that really makes a book timeless? My initial answer is, story and characters, but do pop culture references get in the way of those things? What do you think?
