Nightclub dancer Chloe Lamoureaux just met the man of her dreams: Aidan Raines is charming, considerate, rich, and hot. Of course, he's a little mysterious about his age. And his favourite drink. And he's not much for sunlight. But he's asked her to marry him, and she's ready to do it. 

Her identical twin sister, Chuck, isn't so sure. Maybe being a tabloid reporter has skewed her judgment, but to Chuck, Aidan and his brother Sebastian look like honest-to-Dracula vampires. Especially Sebastian: beguiling, seductive, and just a hint of dangerous. Maybe she wouldn't mind him taking a little taste. But with Chloe's life in the balance, she has to know - do they want hot love or hot blood? Or maybe...a little of both?

Must Love Vampires was the perfect name for this book because you could not help but fall in love with Sebastian and Aidan Raines. These two HOT brothers make Vampires a must have. Heidi wrote a VERY HOT!!!! book that I had trouble putting down.

Chloe and Charlotte a.k.a. Chuck  Monroe are identical twin sisters. Though they share looks and a career surname of Lamorreaux their career paths have taken a completely different turn. Chloe is a Las Vegas Showgirl for the casino Inferno and Chuck is a reporter for the Sin City Tattler.

Sebastian and Aidan Raines are the hottest Vampire brothers to ever settle down in Sin City. Sebastian is the no non-sense brother who owns and operates the casino Inferno while Aidan is carefree and still trying to find his niche in life.

This book is broken up into two stories that start off relatively the same (as in starting point not the same and then come together near the end. First half follows Chuck on her quest to find out if Sebastian is an honest to goodness Vampire. While the second half follows Chloe and Aidan on their way to eloping. What follows is a great fast past very HOT story. I can't say anything more without spoiling the story for everyone.

I love how Heidi crafted both sides of the book. I love how the perfect couple actually had some secrets while the other pair where liberated from their normal selves. She takes all the dark elements we all love about Vampires and makes it all so alluring. On a scale from 1-10 I give Must Love Vampires a 10. I thought it was super hot and sexy with everything I could want in a fast pace Vampire romance. If you are looking for hot Vampires/hot twins, unexpected love, secrets, and just a good read then you need to pick up this book. I encourage everyone adult 18+ to pick up a copy of Must Love Vampires and find out if the house truly always wins.

An IED snuffed out Gabe Holliway's life, but couldn't destroy his love. Using his unique gift, Gabe struggles to help his young wife, Lily, rebuild her shattered future.

But when Gabe's ghost reaches out to her, Lily fears she's lost her last hold on sanity. Can she trust what she discovers and what her heart says? When she sees Gabe face-to-face, can she believe her eyes?

When love transcends death, the answers are found in Nopeming Shores.

Before I give you my review I must warn you. When reading Nopeming Shores make sure you have a box of tissue's handy. Trust me, you are going to need them. Margie weaves such a heart wrenching tale that you just can't walk away from. I too have lost someone near and dear to my heart and so I could totally relate to Lily's plight (could also be part of the reason I cried so much....^_^).

Lily Holliway is a widow grieving over the lose of her husband. Everywhere she turns she feels like she is drowning in a sea of despair. Her close friends Jana and Alex try all they can to help Lily through her pain but to no avail.

Shane Keefe  leaves his large veterinary service in Memphis to start over at his friend Alex's Leigha Acres Veterinary Service in Stevers. Shane has a successful practice but is unlucky in love. He is hoping the move to a new town will turn things around for him.

When Shane bumps into Lily at her job, Love's In Bloom, you can tell there is an unspoken attraction between the two of them but with Lily still grieving over her husband Gabriel, their timing is always off.

There is so much I have to leave out of this review otherwise it might not strike just the right note to tug at your heartstrings and make you cry your eyes Not to mention it would give away some things that might ruin the overall story for everyone. Margie knows how to tap into peoples emotions and make you feel her characters pain, as well as, their joy. This story truly amazed me and I am so thankful I got a chance to read it. On a scale from 1-10 I give Nopeming Shores a MIND BLOWING 20. This month I have read two other books that have caused my scale to jump to 20, but I must say, this story of love and loss really called to me. If you have lost a loved one, believe in getting a fresh start, enduring love, or just love a book that can make you cry then Nopeming Shores is a MUST READ. Everyone needs to run out and grab a copy of Margie's book and let Nopeming Shores rejuvenate you.

Review Of Demands Of The Heart By Brita Addams

Demands of the Heart
Demand Of The Heart By Brita Addams

ebook: 210 pages
Source: GoodReads
Published: February 20th 2012 by Noble Romance Publishing (link to purchase HERE)
Age: Adult 18+*

*I added the age restriction. The age restriction was not provided by GoodReads.Com.


In 1807, idealistic Richard Fanshaw and Victoria Bramhill are consumed with each other, their young love blooming amidst a series of carefree soirees and stolen moments.

But jealousy and greed turn what they have into something ugly and twisted. They're wrenched apart amid vile lies and deceit when Victoria's freedom is bought to pay her father's debts.

Six years later, Victoria is widowed and a cynical Richard has just returned to England after years in India. Having been given the impression that Victoria's marriage was a happy one, a chance meeting renews Richard's anger over Victoria's betrayal and sets in motion a plan for revenge.

One must answer the demands of the heart.

I have not read one Brita Addams book that I did not absolutely love and Demands Of The Heart is no exception. The way she weaves her storytelling web is beyond compare. This book literally sucked me into Richard and Victoria's world of love, pain, loss, and intrigue.

Richard Fanshaw, although his family has money, has always been a self made man. He worked and earned every dollar he ever had. Victoria Bramhill is a dutiful daughter of a father, who wishes merely to stuff his coffers, than his to see his daughters truly happy. Because her father feels he has been financially put out by launching his two daughters into society, Victoria feels she must wait til after the season is over to convince her father to accept Richard's suit of her, even though he has no title.

With less than a month to go before the season is to end, Victoria and Richard are torn apart by an unforeseen enemy and her greedy father. From there, the heartbreak and rage begin to simmer and boil for six years. When Richard and Victoria chance to meet again a new world of hurt and denial begin to unfold. So much goes on after Victoria and Richard's chance meeting but I don't want to spoil the story for anyone.

This book kept me on an emotional roller coaster from page one. I felt their pain and suffering like it was my own. I don't know how Brita is able to make her readers feel so much when you read her books. I have always been a HUGE fan of Historical Romances and Brita has such an amazing gift for details and settings that I can't help but feel I have been transported there through her descriptive details and creative writing. On a scale from 1-10 I give Demands Of The Heart an off the charts 20. My scale could not contain how awesome this story was. If you are looking for a phenomenal Historical Romance with first love, deceit, mistrust, and true love than Demands Of The Heart is the book for you. I employ everyone age 18+ to go grab a copy of Demands Of The Heart and judge for yourself whether Richard and Victoria should answer their Demands Of The Heart.

My time at Authors After Dark & Giveaway!

Hi GCReaders!

So I finally have sometime to share my experience at Authors After Dark with everyone! When I got home I literally just sat around all week. Then this week I attempted to catch up with e-mails, blog post etc. It's been a very crazy month for me LOL.

We arrived at AAD (Debbie and I) three days before the convention so that we could sight see and eat at almost every restaurant possible. Yeah, I gained about seven pounds off that trip LOL! Once the convention started it was no sleep for us. Not that I was sleeping very much before that anyway, but it was just pure excitement for four days straight.

The convention started with a Welcoming party. The welcoming party was a lot of fun and I finally got to put faces to a lot of bloggers that I talk to on Twitter and Facebook. I also got to meet some of my favorite authors like Cynthia Eden, Alexandra Ivy, and Kelly Gay/Keaton. They were super nice!(See Video Below)

I attended AADNOLA this year as a Featured Blogger, and because of this I got the chance to attend a Blogger ARC Party. When I got there, the room was filled with boxes of books, and at each table sat an author. It felt almost like speed dating. It was fun! I got to jump around and chat with Joey W. Hill, Melissa Schroeder, Alexandra Ivy, Leanna Renee Hieber, Suzanne Johnson, and about three other authors. We got lots of goodies and books!

There were lots of panels and one of my favorite panels that I enjoyed a lot and for some reason it sticks out the most in my head was the self-publishing panel. Authors Melissa Schroeder, Eliza Gayle, Cat Johnson, Tina Folsom were a part of this panel and I have to say, it was very informative. I learned a lot about self-publishing that I never knew before and now I have so much more respect for self pub authors.

Oh, and any panel that Dakota Cassidy was on, I enjoyed a lot. That woman needs to be my best friend! She is just so much fun to be around. That was one of the first things I told Debbie and my friends. Any panels with Dakota Cassidy on, you need to go too! You will laugh your little booty off! LOL!

I also went on authors Suzanne Johnson's Post-Katrina Royal Street Tour. This tour for me meant a lot. It wasn't a huge tour, in fact it was only Suzanne, me, and three other girls. AND WE GOT TO RIDE IN A CAR LOL! Avoiding the HEAT! The heat in NOLA is not a joke! I was warned by tons of people how hot it can be and thought Please, I hate the heat. So anything in the 80's in bad weather to me. Oh no, the heat down there was always in the 90's and SUPER humid! It was bad!

Anyway, this tour was a bit sad for me, but fun at the same time. And I say that because Suzanne Johnson took us to some parts where Katrina hit and where it hit the worse. It was very sad hearing the stories. If you don't know, Suzanne Johnson actually lived in NOLA when Katrina hit. Luckily she manged to evacuate, but she was a resident there at the time. She also took us to parts that are in her book , Royal Street, and showed us DJ's (her main character) house.

Sorry if I am jumping here, but I am trying not to make this post so SUPER DUPER long. There is just so much to share. Debbie will be sharing her time at AAD as well, so be in the look out for her post.

I will let the photos/videos do the rest of the talking ;-)

Author Kelly Gay/Keaton and me having dinner at JAX'S Brewery. I swear, that is Apple Juice I am drinking ;-).

This was our view from our hotel room.

Sam (my partner in crime for the night) and Me (Ari) See that corset, when I first put it on, I put it on UPSIDE DOWN! LOL! Author PJ Schnyder actually pointed this out and helped me with my crisis. Thank you!!

PJ Schnyder, Lia Habel and Girl, whose identity will forever be a mystery to me, in their awesome costumes. I have no idea who was under that mask LOL!

 Some more awesome costumes!

All videos were shot using my iPhone.

After the ball some of the authors and us went walking the streets of NOLA in costume!

Review: Seven Day Loan By Tiffany Reisz

Seven Day Loan
By Tiffany Reisz
Kindle Edition
Published (first published November 16th 2010)

A trained submissive, Eleanor will do whatever her master commands...even spend a week with a stranger. Daniel has been a recluse since his wife's death, and Eleanor's lover thinks spending time with her will be therapeutic--especially since Daniel is also a Dom.

Despite her defiant streak, Eleanor can't resist giving in to Daniel's erotic demands. But while she'll let him have her body, she's determined to keep a guard around her heart. Even if Daniel wants to make Eleanor his permanently....

This was a prequel to the Siren. After reading the Siren we know what becomes of Nora, and how much she has grown. This short story gives you a glimpse of who Nora was before the Siren. I loved getting to see the more submissive and innocent side of Nora.

Daniel is so broken and lost after losing his wife, I really felt bad for him and hoped he could heal with Nora's help. The connection between both Nora and Daniel is so strong. I loved the sex scenes and intense moments between them. As the story goes on you fall in love with Daniel and realize what a good man he is. Knowing who Nora's real master is and what a sadist he is, I was hoping Daniel could convince her to stay with him and leave Soren. Unfortunately that time was not mow.

The more I read Tiffany Reisz the more I want to read by her. She has such a talent for pulling you into the world she writes about, whether it is a short story or a long novel you never feel like your just reading a book. I love her ideas and style, not to mention her shock value at who some of these people are. If you have never read anything by Ms. Reisz you are missing out!

5 out of 5 stars

BDSM Giveaway Blog Hop!

BDSM Blog Hop 

Hi Sinfully Tasty Readers! Welcome the the BDSM Blog Hop hosted by Scorching Book Reviews. This is my favorite genre of books and I hope you enjoy them as well.

My personal giveaway will be a copy of The Siren by Tiffany Reisz.

This is a dark twisted world where the wolves are out is sheep’s clothing. A tale of seduction and lust among the characters but never really love at least not how most view it. I found this book mesmerizing and painful, but I could not stop reading. Some shocking things along the way made me view the world a bit darker. Is anyone really safe? Can love be so painful and still be ok? I was left wanting so much more and never wanted this book to end. I loved Nora’s world as crazy as it was. The ending had me crying and breathless for Nora and for the hope she can be happy and in love with herself someday.

I could just go on and on about this book I loved it that much. I recommend this to anyone who wants a really good book about a woman’s insights and her coming to terms with who she is and where she belongs even if it is wrong. Not your typical love story but yet a dark underground love story it is. I hope you enjoy  this book as much as I did!

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

To enter MY giveaway (A copy of The Siren) you must follow this blog and leave a comment below letting us know you follow us. Be sure to leave your Name & Email address so we may contact you if you should win.

Winner will have choice of paperback or ebook version the The Siren.
