Her Dark Knight

Madelaine Alexander is on a mission. When her boss sends her to the hottest nightclub in town to meet with the owner, she won't be deterred, even if that means standing in line for fifty-eight minutes in torturous heels while she'd rather be home in her pj's with a bowl of popcorn.
A Knight of the Templar, Christien Chevalier was given immortality along with the responsibility of protecting the treasure of the Templars. He's been unwavering in his task for centuries until his one true love—who died seven hundred years ago—shows up in his club, demanding his attention.
Christien couldn't protect Madelaine when they first fell in love. She was married to a lord and he was simply a knight. Now, through some unknown miracle, she stands before him again and they have a second chance. But Christien fears that Madelaine is being used as a pawn in a dangerous game, a game of good versus evil that could affect all of mankind...

Ahhhh yes......I must say one of the most unique romance books I've read this year.
Usually I have no problem saying I really loved it, liked it , or put it nicely that I thought it was just ok. However, this one has me on edge. I enjoyed reading it, but it's back story was freaking SAD!!! Not sad like in the author can't write worth a bean, but sad as in OMG, I want to jump in the book and smack some stupid men!
The love between Christien and Madelaine was unbelievable! I mean to surpass everything and still have a bond so strong...just WOW!
I can totally say I have no love lost on Giselle or Lucien...Really what Immortal SLIME (at least for the time being...LOL)
Truly a different kind of romance book.
Usually you think lots of romance, some fighting, happily ever after....but
the end was rather unexpected, but I guess it all worked out for the best.
Our Author took us on a whirl wind of an I'd say this book is a....  
Definite a read!!!

Light Fixtures

It’s 1963 and everything is moving fast for 14-year-old Aurora. Her often-manic thoughts and actions can cause those around her to shake their heads in bafflement, especially when her spirits nosedive. But it’s no puzzle for the mystical Mr. Hematite and his tiny assistant, Mr. Dragonfly. Together, they guide her in understanding the onset of bipolar moods, and show her that as Light Fixtures, everyone – even a bipolar teenager - has the potential to shine with balance and brilliance.

When I first started reading this I wondered where the blurb from the back of the book even came from?
After finishing the book I totally understood.

Although the book took a bit to get going, which was totally understood (the story had to be set for the day to day of how Aurora lived her life for the full effect). Once she met Mr. Dragonfly and actually followed him, it really started to be more than just a story of life. It became the story of who she was and how to understand what is happening to her. 
Mr. Dragonfly took her to a small cabin  where she met Mr. Hematite....
He was such an interesting character, truly unique. Definitely a great help to Aurora in the beginning and in the end. 
I honestly don't have a clue what would have happen to Aurora without the Iron box. 
I must say my favorite part, although sad as all heck, was when Mr. Dragonfly died....Only  because of the poem Mr. Hematite recited:
Leave yourself open and you shall see that the Light of your day is upon thee.
Keep your heart firm and you will know that that the path of which you walk is that of secure.
Understand your trust and you will find the rose of your day and thorns of your mind.

If you are looking for a story with a bit of wonder then I would definitely pick this book up.
It's available for:
Kindle     Nook  

I bet you're wondering why the book is called Light Fixtures????
You know I wondered that same thing, but I read the book and got an AMAZING answer!!!!!!

A Shot In The Dark

Coming November 7, 2011

Carter is one of the hottest men ever to walk into Paige Long's coffee shop. The attraction is mutual, and when Carter reveals himself to be a Dom, the submissive in Paige is aroused. Yet she brushes him off-her last relationship was abusive and she's unwilling to get involved with another Dom.
But when Carter returns the next day-in his firefighter uniform-Paige's fantasies really heat up. She can't resist his offer to get to know him over a drink at Mavericks, a local sex club. Their conversation quickly escalates to a session in one of the private rooms, and Paige is both thoroughly satisfied by Carter's skills in domination, and impressed with his selflessness as a lover.
Paige is ready to move on with her life. But can she trust in herself and submit to happiness?

Book 2 of the Long Shot Series, Only 30,000 words.
Personally, I found it a real easy read, enjoyable and fun. It started out strong and kept going.
Of course the idea of a hot fireman as a Dom kinda added to the whole sizzle of the story.
Paige is such a wonderfully written character.....she is so relate-able, always taking care of her siblings first....scorned from a last relationship...etc!
She really needed to take a break for herself and get her life back on track.
Carter....OMG!!!!! The above blurb said it all..."Selflessness as a lover"
He never did ask for more than a cup of coffee :)
Yet, very creative...loved the peas.....LOL
All in All a great read for any of my ADULT followers.
