(London Steampunk #5)
Author: Bec McMaster
Publishing Date: March 3, 2015
Genre: Steampunk PNR
ENEMIES. ALLIES. LOVERS.
When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When Mina obtains evidence proving that Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son, a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.
A woman of mystery, Mina’s long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows she’s hiding something, and he’s determined to unravel her layer by silken layer. He just doesn’t expect the beautiful liar to be the key to overthrowing the corrupt prince consort…or to saving his own carefully walled-off heart.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

1. Tell us five things about yourself that readers may not know about you.
I have twin girls (one blonde, one brunette) who love stealing toys from their big brother’s room when they’re supposed to be in bed, going to sleep (nightly occurrence)
My kids will all get “I survived my Mommy” t-shirts when they hit 18. Let’s just say I’m a klutz and that extends to holding my children even when I’m trying to be super careful.
My grandmother was the first female State Farm agent in California.
I used to have a working/playing knowledge of six instruments, my favorite of them being the bassoon.
I try very hard to include snarky comments referencing a certain series of books about sparkling vampires in almost every book (or series) I write.
2. What does a typical writing day look for you?
Well, that’s hard to say because despite my best attempts, I don’t manage to be as regular as I should be (hmmm, that could be misinterpreted). Anyway, my goal usually is to write for 30-45 minutes before work, then work on my project during my lunch hour for another 30-45 minutes, with a session in the evening as well after all three of my children are in bed.
3. Tell us a little bit about Locked in Stone and why readers should check it out? Continue reading
It’s March 1st officially, so how about another Celebration Giveaway. It’s kinda late for celebration since Book Lovin’ Mamas turned ‘3’ last month, but this Book Lovin’ Mama has little to no down time at all now days. My job has lots of projects coming up. In the Technology field, we are always upgrading to bigger and better things…which is why I’m addicted to the technology workforce. I LOVE how technology changes constantly. Believe me it’s never boring.
Psst…my company is implementing Apple Pay soon….which is friggin’ AWESOME!! That’s just a hint on what is happening at my company. More is coming down the way and that is why I’m rarely online. My life revolves around work, being a mom & wife, and sneaking in some reading/blogging time when I can.
So….Let’s get on with the other giveaways. Continue reading

Despite surviving silver poisoning, Vivian isn’t out of the fire yet. Rolando is still alive, as is his desire to eliminate all manipulator vampires like her. The streets of Buenos Aires prove to be a tricky hunting ground for Vivian and her husband Rafe, especially when a paranormal serial killer starts leaving bodies behind.
Overwhelmed amidst the city’s chaos, they seek help from Jon, Vivian's werewolf servant and the couple’s right-hand man. As the deaths continue, a local alpha under scrutiny for the crimes threatens to blame Jon and reveal his master’s daytime location—if they don’t find the real culprit.
It’s a race for the trio to stop the killings, uncover the truth, and catch the vampire responsible for Vivian’s torture—before the supernatural locals pick up their proverbial pitchforks and stop them all, for good.
Warning: This book contains adult content (violence, blood, and sex) and is intended for readers over 18.

1. Describe yourself using only 5 words.
Gemini-esque rule-bending hall monitor
2. What does a typical writing day look like for you?
I work as a therapist in private practice until 7:00 PM, so typically I put the earphones in and write in the evenings from 8:30 until 11:00 PM.
3. Tell us a little bit about One Percenter and why readers should definitely check it out?
One Percenter is a book about what it is like to grow up loving the people the rest of the world is terrified of. To break some of the stereotypes and preconceived notions, I approach the world of bikers and one percenters from the view of their family members and delve into a universal psychological and emotional experience that we can all relate to. I also aspire to create some of the best book boyfriends possible, so there’s that too.
4. What was either the easiest or hardest scene to write in One Percenter? (without giving too much away of course) =) Continue reading
