Review: North of Need~Laura Kaye

This review is part of the Kiss & Tell Tour (Hosted by Bewitching Book Tours)






Book Blurb (From Goodreads):

While attempting to escape the agonizing memories she associates with Christmas, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband and collapses in tears against the snowman at the sight of what she'll never have. Called to life by the power of Megan's tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity. Megan is drawn to Owen's mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things, and her heart opens enough to believe he's a Christmas miracle. But this miracle comes with an expiration before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let …

Author Interview (Karyn Gerrard)

Hi All,

Please welcome today Author Karyn Gerrad, I'll be interviewing her on her book Black Lust
Book Blurb: Lucius Black lives a debauched and wild nightlife. Being a ‘Quarter’ (1/4 vampire), blood and sex are what he is. However, his existence wears thin after a century of hedonistic pleasure. Trevina Patterson lives a quiet, happy life running a hair salon in a village on the east coast of the United Kingdom. It was a perfect life and all she could ask for, until a chance encounter with Lucius Black. What was it about him that was so unsettling and yet so attractive? For Lucius, no woman had ever been enough, until Trevina. She awakened in him feelings he had not thought possible. Passions considered by him to be little more than vampiric mythology. She awakened his...black lust.
Living in a small town in a corner of Ontario, Canada, I wile away my spare time writing, reviewing and reading romance. As long as I can avoid being hit by a runaway moose here in this wilderness paradise, …

Hi All!

Please welcome Author Laura Bickle today as she talks about writing and her book Embers (Anya Kalinczyk #1)

Timeline of the Novel Affair
by Laura Bickle

Writing a book is a lot like being in love - good and bad. There is a predictable timeline and rhythm, I find. And it feels very familiar.

Initially, there's infatuation. The flush and excitement of a new idea. This is the easy part - words flow effortlessly. I can spend hours researching or daydreaming about how fabulous the idea is. I make notes, sketches, maps, cut clippings from magazines - I've met my characters, and am deliriously in love with everything they say. The project is, I believe, invincible.

It brings me flowers. I glow.

Then, somewhere around the 30,000 word mark, the infatuation fades. I begin to see the flaws, the inconsistencies, the cracks in the foundation of plot. I'm rolling over in the morning and staring at a book with bad breath that snores. It chews with its mouth open and forgets to say &quo…

Review: Embers (Anya Kalinczyk #1) by Laura Bickle

Not what I was expecting, but a very good story to read. This was my first time reading a story where the main character is a medium and I gotta say I enjoyed it immensely. I was immediately drawn into the story from the start of the very first line.

Anya is a fire arson investigator during the day and at night, she works for DAGR as a lantern. She works as a spiritual vacuum, drawing in lingering spirits that do not or cannot move on. She is the last one called in when there are no other options left. It 's also a job that she no longer wants to do.  Anya feels disconnected from those around her and keeps most everyone at bay, even the people she considers friends.

Things I liked
Anya's salamander Sparky. He reminded me of an actual dog. Loving and fiercely protective of Anya. Also thought Anya character was strong and independent. I liked how she was determined to solve the problems that came her way.

Things I didn't like were mainly how Anya kept her friends at bay. I und…
