After twelve years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave.

Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge—but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief, who all seem to have KILL THE DRUID at the top of their to-do lists

The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia’s savior doesn’t turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.

When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden—this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, h…

Vote For My Halloween Cover Remake!

Ahhh, yes! I's back again! lol. Not too long ago, I've entered in the cover contest over @ Confessions of a Bookaholic. All you had to do was take a book of your choosing and make it skeeeery! lol. So, of course, I was like... hell fucking yes! I'm entering! I always love challenging myself when it comes to designing and well, this definitely was a bit of a challenge. Simple, but challenging.
I originally wanted to do something vampish.. but that one ended up looking so.... blah? So, with the go ahead from Neyra (my partner in crime) I demonified a little girl. lmbo! You're all probably thinking I'm crazy. I'm not... yet. I went ahead and chose to remake Heather Gudenkaufs One Breath Away. In my defense, I am not the first person to demonify a little girl. And most likely, not the last.

Salacious Reads Blog News ~ RSS Feeds

Good Morning Guys,

I've decided not to use FeedCat anymore. Every time I ping, it would send 5-10 emails to my readers & I just can't have that. I don't like for my email to be spammed, so I can imagine my readers don't want to be either. Their contact us/help page leaves little to be desired, so I decided that at this time, I'm not going to have email subscription or an RSS feed until I can find something a little more reliable, easy to navigate & of course Free. I'll update you guys as soon as I do..until then you can catch my blog posts of course here, Twitter or my Facebook page.

Thanks for understanding & as always your patience.

Meet Alex & Tristan, modern star-crossed lovers of the supernatural variety.
Alex is running-on-empty, one year on from the death of her fiancé, and the only thing that keeps her going is her romance with the young vampire Tristan.

He's trying to persuade her to come over to the dark side but so far she's resisting his efforts.

So come and sing along to Tristan's band, The Dead Beats, the hottest group in London right now, and walk with Alex as she teeters between this life and the next. Because when you're around Tristan, you'll see, how much fun it is to be alive when you're dead....

Tess Jennings’ life is in chaos. Not only has her ghost lover, Kipp McGowen, crossed into the Netherworld, but she’s the newest member of a secret society. And they want her to start work immediately. Upon arriving in White Castle, Louisiana, she is presented with an offer she cannot refuse.

The Grand Master has been murdered and Tess must solve the crime by locating his ghost. The reward—a magical spell to save Kipp. But as Tess dives deeper into the case, the more danger surrounds her. Not everyone wants the murder solved, and she is caught in the crossfire.

Soon, Tess finds herself knee-deep in a hunt for a spell, a race to locate a killer, and a journey to the beyond. Will Kipp finally take a living breath, or will Tess take her last?

What do you think? I love it! I mean the ghost sex alone was just...whoa!

I love Tess & Kipp's story..Stacey left me …
