Tempest's Legacy (Jane True No.3) by Nicole Peeler

Title: Tempest's Legacy (Jane True No.3)
Author: Nicole Peeler
Pages: 368
Published: January 1, 2011 by Orbit
ISBN: 9780316056601
Summary: After a peaceful hiatus at home in Rockabill, Jane True thinks that her worst problem is that she still throws like a girl - at least while throwing fireballs. Her peace of mind ends, however, when Anyan arrives one night with terrible news . . . news that will rock Jane's world to its very core.

After demanding to help investigate a series of gruesome attacks on females -- supernatural, halfling, and human -- Jane quickly finds herself forced to confront her darkest nightmares as well as her deepest desires.

And she's not sure which she finds more frightening. (from NetGalley.com)

I have three words for you all...Oh. My. Gosh. Yes, profound, I know, but this book was absolutely, positively freaking Amazing with a capital "A". All my dear readers, you know my love and complete unadulterated obsession with my dearest Jane True. As you also know that includes her wonderful consorts *clears throat*....namely a sexy hell hound...and if you don't, then you should. (Or you can remind yourself by checking out my review of book one HERE and book two HERE) Because I'm telling you, there is nothing like the deliciousness of Jane True the half selkie!

Each book so far has had it's own beauty, it's own lovely developing version of the heroin, Jane True. In book one, we see her realize her worth, in book two, we see her realize she can take care of herself, and in book three....well...we see her realize her strengths. And, I don't think the fights between her libido and her virtue will ever get old. Maybe because I can relate. Especially while reading this book can I relate. Although, I think I side with her libido when I say, can I ride a motorcycle with the Barghest?!

Mmmmm, yummy, the smexy Anyan Barghest. I mean, I currently feel like licking my lips over an over just at the thought of him. *grrrruff* Oh yeah, that is one hot piece of hell hound. Seriously, just sitting here in this chair, recalling the deliciousness of his keister. I think he is currently my favorite fictional boyfriend. I can hear my libido and virtue now:

Libido: Come on Jen, just lick him a bit. A little bit down the abs, maybe he'll throw you against a wall...

Virtue: Jen, don't do it. Think, you're married and well....he exists in Kindle format only...

Damn my virtue!

On a more literary note though, I do think that Peeler has created brilliant characters and using her miraculous author skills, has developed them into a lovely cast of awesomeness. Plus, her plot content was absolutely amazing and pulled me right in to the craziness that is Jane True. I just love the way that Peeler can write the story like she does with all the uniqueness and beauty inserted and all the annoying kornyness kept out. She makes you feel like you are right there, in the action with all of the characters. Up close and personal and amazingly done.

This third book in the series, if you haven't figured it out yet, was absolutely marvelous and wonderful all contained in 368 pages of yumminess. And, with an absolutely friggin' amazing plot that will swerve and careen you into a world of fantasy that you will never want to leave what else can you do but pick up your very own copy. I mean, what could be better than furry brownies, science gone awry, mage balls run amuck and the sexiest damn man/hell hound alive, you just can't go wrong.

Rating: Photobucket

...He'd let my sleeping body know he was there to protect me, and my sleeping brain had thanked him by making him the star of one of the most explicit erotic dreams I'd ever had. And I'm someone who dreams dirty.
"Everything 'pony' is better. Especially pony-style."(Trill the Kelpie)

I laid my head back down, squeezing my eyes shut. "ohmigod, are you talking about pony sex? 'Cause if you are, I think you may have ruined me for life."
I stood in front of my closet, completely at a loss. What do you pack for a vengeance quest? I didn't have time to rewatch my Tarantino, and from what I remembered, Uma's wardrobe wasn't going to work on me. Imagine yellow pleather on a girl who was half-seal rather than pure Viking. Notpretty.

...From there, our team would "bring the pain"...and hopefully rescue the hostages held inside the lab.

"I was with you right up until you said, 'Bring the pain.' I've only ever brought cookies, or the occasional casserole."

Anyan's big nose twitched. "Well, for your first time, you can just bring a minor irritant."

..."Nothing's going to happen, Jules. Can I call you Jules?"

"Only if I can slap you each and every time you do.".... (Jillian - a guy)

..."Did you take your sassy pills tonight, Jules?"

"Seriously, Jane. I will cut a bitch."

"Where did you even learn that expression? Have you been watching RuPaul's Drag Race again?"

Quotes from The Ghost Hunter

From The Ghost Hunter
By: Lori Brighton
Published: Smashwords
E-Book 194 pages
Save a Tree – Read an e-book Button
E-Book Love <3

Today I thought I would try something a bit different.
This book was soo good.  
Yes, I finished it!

But instead of reviewing it today... That will come next week *wink*.
I'm going to provide with a handful of most amazing quotes.
Lori Brighton filled up a couple of pages in my trusty notebook.
It has been awhile since that has happened.
Today I will share my quote Treasures :)

It is only fair to start off with the First Line:
Considering the place was at least three hundred years old, she supposed it could have been worse.

How she wanted to take those damn golden curls and wrap them around her scrawny neck.

Hell, who was she kidding; not even Franksenstein would feel at home in this pub of horrors.

She was so tired of these odd replies that only brought up more questions.  It was like having a conversation with the Mad Hatter.

Ghosts, Witches, & Poltergeists? Oh my.

Death by high heels, how embarassing would that have been?

Cristian closed his eyes as he resisted the urge to turn, to step closer to her like a druggie looking for a fix.  His drug of choice?  Woman.

"Death to all," a voice growled.  "Well, that's just rude," she muttered, searching for the beast responsible, or at least some sort of weapon.

My favorite Quote:

Well, are you going to tell me or just sit there brooding like some romance novel hero?

Ok... I did not provide you with all of the quotes I wrote down but here is a fair amount of awesomness in Lori Brighton's form of goodness.

Thanks for Stopping by today!!

Y by Bonnie Rozanski - A Book Review

Title: Y
: Bonnie Rozanski
: 231 (e-book)
: August 29th, 2010
: November 21st, 2010
Synopsis: The year is 2011, the place, New York City. A mysterious microbe has begun to infect women of child-bearing age. Though the medical establishment writes it off as a simple flu, and the epidemic appears to be dying out, a young New York obstetrician confronts a conundrum. In the past year, the ratio of boys to girls born in her practice has declined precipitously. Dr. Deborah Kruger suspects the truth: that infected women are no longer able to give birth to male children. With the help of her husband Larry, a computer analyst, Deborah tracks the epicenter to New York City, from which the infection is already bursting forth. And, as years pass, despite hundreds of laboratories at work on it, the microbe continues to overrun borders and envelop the Earth. With Science unable to stop it, and the contagion rippling worldwide in an AIDS-like pandemic, how will society cope in an increasingly female world?(from Goodreads.com)
So this particular review will be a duet between me and the lovely Black Disaster Fairy. As you can see from the summary above, this is a science fiction novel of epic proportion. Because seriously, what could be more epic than the major loss of the male species. Yes, yes, I may complain about Hubby, but it would be terribly sad if they died
I mean, so much less to stare at *wink wink*

Luckily we do have authors who have a special knack for creating the most drool worthy fictional boyfriends for those of us who do not have a Hubby! LOL! However, it would be sad to lose the whole male species but I do quiet nicely without them. This book was amazing. It was like a science book on crack for me. I do love science and my wheels were turning around every problem that presented itself in the book. But I must say that the science aspect is broken down nicely so if you don't know anything about chromosomes or microbes then no worries!!

When I started this book, I really had no idea what to expect. I mean, yeah, I knew the background of the story, but I had never read anything by Bonnie Rozanski. And after the prologue, I was even more nervous. But, turns out that the first chapter starts off magnificently and the rest of the book lives up to it. The whole book was a lovely display of science in action and not only did it hold my attention, I kept thinking about it whenever I wasn't reading it. I mean, there was crazy ideas stuck in my head of cloning and the death of the male species and all sorts of other things, I even dreamed about it. (yeah, I may have issues).

My love Jen hits some very good points. I had no clue what this book was about. But I'm like that with most every book because if you know me I do not read the synopsis of a story before I decide to read. *gasps* Yeah I know, I do end up with some stinky ones.

The prologue was horrible. It made me want to turn off the e-book and knit! If it was a book I would of threw it a few times before starting chapter one. Even after finishing the book and rereading the prologue I still hated it!!

Take out the prologue the story was beautiful. It unfolded in the most wonderful way and the characters had this way of making the twists wrap and intertwine into beautiful circles. Sometimes you knew where the author was going and well, sometimes she shocked the Fairy right out of me.

Which brings us to our character portion of this review! This book follows several different families throughout the ordeal. My 2 favorite characters were Deborah and Larry who happen to also be husband and wife. Deborah is an OBGYN (for all those who don't know what that means, it's a woman's doctor) and Larry is a database analyst. Deborah was smart and strong and didn't give up on her ideas and Larry was like the ultimate genius who was also an awesome husband...even if he might have been stuck at his computer for days...*big grin* A little later on, we also have their son, Stephen.

Deborah was great, though that is my mothers name so no matter how she wrote her I pictured my mother through the whole book. Which surprisingly didn't turn me off but made me like her even more, especially with the idea that my mom knows anything about science. Yeah, right! Larry was great but he was too ideal of a man. Oh my!! I loved Sam... he was interesting and well he shocked the Fairy tremendously later on in the book. It was great to get that jolt of excitement. However, I cannot lie when I say he got what was coming to him or not.

Then there was Bill, what an a$$!! He is a man that will make you barf all over John the other a$$ of the book.

Agreed!!! Bill was so overly sexist, I wanted to murder him. John, the cheating slug, deserved to be kicked in the lower extremities. For me, there was also Victoria, John's spouse (*clears throat* X-Spouse) who was self-absorbed and vindictive, and in the end Willa. Although, Willa was a very complex character to me. I mean, I felt beyond bad for her and what she had to go through during her teen years (I think there was gagging involved on my part), but what happens at the end of the book had me up in arms. I'm not going to tell you, so if you want to know you'll read the book. *mwah ha ha ha*

Well, look at that you also do not approve of Bill and John! The Fairy is so not shocked about that. But what would be a book without characters we love and hate?? They work so well together making the story work in that crazy wonderful way.

I know exactly what you mean. What would a good book be without an exciting cast of the good, the bad and the ugly, a thrilling scientific plot of genes, cloning and the Y chromosome, a take over by woman everywhere in addition to crazy actresses, bombings and nature at it's best, you won't be disappointed with this book. So, all those who are looking for something that makes you think, pick up Bonnie Rozanski's "Y".

I loved this book so much! (minus that darn prologue). If you want to read about a world going to the female population and what happens to the people in it, the process of scientific research, & personal development then this book has it all. Really a Scientific Fiction novel smashed into a dystopian book makes the Fairy really happy.

She looked around her at the pulsing, coursing flow of people, and thought, it's like one giant bloodstream, all of us feeding the same organism, New York City. - pg 5

Anyway, figure out how many females the average male can reproduce with, - let's say 40 times... "40?" Steven repeated incredulously. - pg 214

Fire Burn & 
Cauldron Bubble

By: H.P. Mallory
Series:  Jolie Wilkins Series
Publisher:  Smashwords
Rating: 4.5
Book Art: Cute... 4
Genre:  Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Adult

First Line:  It's not every day you see a ghost.


Jolie finds out that she simply is not what she thought she was.  How do you go from being a fortune teller to a person with the ability to see ghosts?  Ok, perhaps that would be fun for a little while.  I mean so many of us HUMANS want to be something other then what we are now.  Crazy.  But for Jolie things get a bit crazier, not only does she see ghosts but she is able to make the dead come back to life!  Wow!  Now those are some crazy super powers.  Someone needs to call Batman and tell him to hang up his cape.  Seriously, I love Batman!  Don't really do that.

Soon a tall dark handsome man comes to her psychic shop to sweep her off her feet hire her to help find out who killed the ghost.  Rand is a warlock who helps show Jolie that she is truly a witch, and boy, a powerful grandmommy of them to boot!  He also shows her that she can never go back to being a plain ol' human.  I mean who would want to?  Not I, said the Fairy!  However, Rand has this one rule that makes you grin because you know there will be some rule breaking somewhere, it is a paranormal romance after all!  Rand does not think that a boss should not mix business with pleasure with his employee.
Save a Tree – Read an e-book Button
Well, I'll be darn... let the rule breaking begin!  Ok, I will spare you from all of the lusting yummy hotness because I know you want to read that for yourself.  (Which I recommend you do!)  Another witch tries to claim Jolie for herself.  Which I did not see coming but was a great plot twist because our handsome stud, Rand, battle for his right to keep Jolie as an employee.  Wait!  He just wants to keep his employee?  There must be some magical labor laws.  Hmm... There is more!  He is also battling his growing feelings for Jolie.  *Ahh*  I told you there would be some rule breaking!

I did not have a problem getting into the book.  Although, I must admit that I was hoping for a bit more of a clean ending.  Perhaps, just more BANG!  Fear not! This is just the first in the series, we will learn more later on.  Even with the wanting more at the end, I was never bored throughout the book.  It was highly addictive.  Like the Dark Chocolate the Fairy Loves so much!  I hope HP Mallory keeps the wit and interesting characters coming.  This story was just as fun to read as her other book and would be just too hard to pick out which one I liked the most.  

I am now a fan!

Pleasure Unbound (Demonica No.1) by Larissa Ione

Title: Pleasure Unbound (Demonica No.1)
Author: Larissa Ione
Pages: 389 pages
Published: June 20th, 2008
Read: October 16th, 2010
Synopsis: She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.

Could I just say that I was super depressed that I had to return this book to the library!! I wanted to go back and read it again just for all of its yummy goodness and steamy love scenes. *prrrr*

From the synopsis above we find out that this story is about a demon slayer and a demon all wrapped up into a cozy love/sex affair. Really, It's all quite juicy and delicious and it starts off with a bang (literally). Okay, maybe not in the very very beginning, but no matter, it is still quite delicious. It starts off in a demon hospital where a demon of any kind can go and get fairly treated. I know... interesting....

Now I always try to make my reviews spoiler free for all those who haven't read the book, so here it goes:

I absolutely loved and adored Eidolon who happens to be a Seminus demon which I guess is a form of a succubus. He just seems so sweet and kind and downright gruff. I picture him as being one of those guys who is bad but who can be good. Okay, that sounds funny, but I had this conversation with one of my sisters and he totally foots the bill there. Plus, he sounds sexy as hell so I wouldn't mind taking him up against a wall....a rough wall at that.
"I'll bet you can make a woman throw out all her toys." (Tayla to Eidolon)
Then we have Tayla. She is the main female lead and the demon slayer. It cracked me up that they keep referring to her as "The Buffy". I liked Tayla for the shear fact that she kicked ass and didn't take crap from anyone. However *clears throat *....that little problem she suffered through for most of her life....uuhhh...can we say THAT WOULD TOTALLY SUCK!!! (Those who have read this know what I mean... can we say pain for the V!)
"So,uh, where am I, exactly ? And what do you plan on doing with me ?"

"You're at Underworld General Hospital. As you can probably guess, we specialize in nonhuman medical care. Our location is secret, so don't ask."

"UGH ? Your hospital is called 'ugh' ? Oh, that's precious." (Tayla to Eidolon)

So, that is kinda the gist of it without going into further detail and ruining plot points. I will say this though, you can't go wrong with a crazy ass whipping, sweet fights, succubus' that cook and some interesting things going on making me really want my very own tail (that's right, I said that!!) you'll want to read this book as soon as possible!

Georgina Kincaid Series by Richelle Mead - A Series Review

Title: Georgina Kincaid Series
Author: Richelle Mead
Published: 2007-2010
September 14-23 2010

To see a synopsis for each book, click the cover and it will take you to it's page on Goodreads.com


So, I'd really like to apologize for our lack of reviews lately. It seems that I keep getting wrapped up in these excellent series and I just keep putting off my reviews. Again we're sorry, but at least some good book reading comes out of it *grins*.

One of my more recent series was the wonderful Georgina Kincaid Series by Richelle Mead. The basic story line is about a succubus who doesn't really want to be a succubus. Now if any of you are wondering what a succubus is, this happens to be my favorite part of this tale....it's a paranormal female (the male version is an incubus) who gets it's life energy by stealing that of human's. But, it's how they steal it that I love. They steal it through sex.

Okay, so I might be a demented soul, but still it's kind of funny to me in a totally jacked up sort of way.

Our main character Georgina Kincaid lives in Seattle and is surrounded with all sorts of other immortals including a couple vampires, an imp, an angel and a demon. Now, she also happens to have some high affection for humans which I guess isn't the norm for immortals. But Georgina isn't normal for a succubus.

Longing surged up within me. I wanted it. Oh God, I wanted it. I didn't want to hear Jerome chastise me for my "all lowlifes, all the time" seduction policy. I wanted to come home and tell someone about my day. I wanted to go out dancing on the weekends. I wanted to take vacations together. I wanted someone to hold me when I was upset, when the ups and downs of the world pushed me too far.
I wanted someone to love. (Georgina)

Now, I don't want to give too much about this series away, but I would say besides Georgina, who is like this strong, smart, sexy woman/immortal/sex goddess (who also provides us scenes of exhibitionism), my favorite characters are going to be Seth and Carter.

Now Seth is a mortal and happens to also be an author. Carter is an angel and although I didn't like him that much in the first book, I really ended up loving him in all the rest.

But, Seth, he is just such an amazing character if you think about it for awhile. I mean, his character is so wonderfully developed and he is so flawed that you can't help but love him for it. I mean, he just brings this reality to the books that makes the reader feel like they are really there experiencing everything with the characters. And Seth, I just love him. He seems super shmexy and at the same time smart and shy and kind. I love that about him.

"Well, that depends, I suppose. I heard someone once say that men dance the same way they have sex. So, if you want everyone here to think you're the kind of guy who just sits around and—"(Georgina)

He stood up. 'Let's dance." (Seth)

"I hope I redeemed myself with the whole dancing-sex comparison.” (Seth)

“I suppose there were a couple of notable similarities,” I observed, holding a straight face.

“A couple? What about attention to detail, heavy exertion, lots of sweat, and single-minded determinedness to get the job done and done well?”

“Mostly I was thinking you just don’t talk during sex.” Mean perhaps, but I couldn’t resist.

“Well, my mouth has better things to do.”

I swallowed, my own mouth dry. “Are we still talking about dancing?"

Heehee! Gotta love the man!

Anyway though, these books are just....FANTASTIC! I loved them and I just couldn't get enough of them. Mead has such a way with her characters and her story line. I just love the way it flows and how she makes me feel glorious things about her characters. I love how she can describe a scene perfectly without too many words and still get me to know exactly what I'm seeing. Anyone who hasn't read this series should give it a try, because with arch demons who look like John Cusack, hilarious games of Pictionary involving an angel, a metrosexual vampire and a story that crosses over centuries you will love it as much as I did!
"Wait,” he said. “That’s not a word.” (Seth)

I looked down to where, in a moment of desperation, I’d played zixic on a triple-word-score space.

“Uh, sure it is.”

“What’s it mean?”

“It’s sort of like…quixotic, but with more…”


I laughed out loud. I’d never heard him swear before.

“More zeal. Hence the z.”

“Uh-huh. Use it in a sentence.”

“Um…’You are a zixic writer.’“

“I don’t believe this.”

“That you’re zixic?”

“That you’re trying to cheat at Scrabble.” He leaned back against my couch, shaking his head. “I mean, I was ready to accept the whole evil thing, but this is kind of extreme."

Series Rating: Scorching Desire

The last book in this series Succubus Revealed will be released September 2011 so add it to your calendars!

Sexy Quotes


"I respect you," he murmured. "and your views. I think of you as an equal. I respect your brains, and all those big words you like to use. But I also want to rip your clothes off and have sex with you until you scream and cry and see God."
— Lisa Kleypas (Smooth Talking Stranger)


"I don't know the question, but sex is definitely the answer.
— Woody Allen

"Davy's kiss tasted like vodka and disaster, and even while she kissed him back, Tilda thought, I'm never going into a closet with this man again. He slipped his hand under her T-shirt, and she said, "You know," as his hand slid up to her breast, but the only thing left to say was, I'm not that kind of girl, and of course she was."
— Jennifer Crusie (Faking It)
