A few days recuperation back in his hometown will give him the perspective he needs. The added bonus is it’ll give him time to convince his ex-wife to come back to him, despite his life of risk. But when Marcy experiences a slew of unexplained accidents, JB realizes he brought the danger to her doorstep.  With a killer after them, Marcy and JB run for their lives, escaping to a lakeside cabin.

Lusting for Covers (1)


Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.
This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ’s Book Palace.

(FranJessca) BLM’s pick for this week is

The Fallen

(Sons of Wrath #0.5)

Author: Keri Lake

Expected Release: 4/17/14

Genre: Urban Fantasy


**Not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence, sex and strong language.

To catch the Fallen, you have to become the very evil you were bred to slay.

Show loyalty. Be willing to go deep into the gritty underbelly of the world, where the vilest acts of human carnage thrive and seep into your mind like a black poison, consuming every part of you that was once good. Ignore your dark cravings and keep to the most important rule of all: never save the mortals.

This is the life of a Sentinel.

Some call us the toughest angels in the heavens. Unbreakable. But even the strong can break in the face of temptation.

Human females have always been the forbidden fruit for our kind—an enticement I’ve resisted for centuries, until she came along.

Karinna lusts for vengeance.

She wants inside the darkness, where the Fallen own the corrupted streets of Detroit—the perfect bait to take down the biggest crime ring the city has ever known.

I want her. To have her, though, I’ll have to break the rules.

For one taste of the forbidden, I’ll have to commit the most heinous sin of all …

Why FranJessca chose this cover?
I have loved every single one of these covers to this series. Keri Lake does an amazing job on finding models that actually portray the characters pretty well to put on her covers. She even does a cover model contest for some of her books.  She held a cover model contest for Soul Resurrected and recently did it for Soul Enslaved too.  She allows the readers to decide who gets to dawn the cover of her books that would look the part of the main character telling the story.  Let’s just say Keri Lake delivers sexy covers that you need to buy the paperback instead of Kindle/Nook version, so you can look at it  every day and drool over it.  The Fallen doesn’t disappoint because well…look at the model’s back?  HOTNESS!  It also helps that the fact I have been curious about Xander and this cover reflects him pretty well.  I’m so glad that Keri decided to write his story and as a prequel.  =)

Liz Everly’s “Like Honey” Blog Tour (Interview) + #Giveaway

TOUR BUTTON_Like Honey Tour_LizEverly

Welcome to BLM’s virtual stop on Liz Everly’s Like Honey Blog Tour brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.


Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas! We are so glad to have you here today!

-21Thank YOU so much for having me! ;-)

1.  Tell us 3 things about yourself that readers may not be able find out about you on the web.

  1. I am a coffee fiend. Can’t get started without TWO cups of java in the morning.
  2. I’m a mini-van mom without the mini-van. We’ve finally gotten rid of the actual van, but I still chauffeur kids around.
  3. I’m happily married. Been married to the same guy for almost 24 years.

2.  What does a typical writing day look for you? 

I’m very disciplined. I write between 1,000 and 2,000 words a day on my WIP, usually in the morning. Then I take care of business—I work as a freelance writer. Then if I have time later in the day, I work on blog posts and proposals.  Sometimes other books, besides my WIP.

3.  When you’re not writing, what are your hobbies/interests?

I love to scrapbook, cook, bake, garden. I run, do Zumba and Yoga.

Alpha Male Madness #Giveaway Hop

Alpha Male Madness Hop
Welcome to BLM’s stop on the Alpha Male Madness Giveaway Hop hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup .

Alpha Males….we ALL love’ em!  
At least I know I do.
I’m happily married to an Alpha Male and I sure love reading about them in books.  =)
One Author who knows how to write Alpha Males is J.R. Ward.  She is one of my ALL-time Favorite Authors and I want to share one of my favorite alpha male characters from her BDB series.

Rehvenge from Lover Avenged 


He’s not the nice guy in the BDB series, in fact he’s a drug lord and he actually was approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King. (Wrath he’s another favorite…which made me almost want to smack Rehvenge for even wanting to hurt Wrath)
 Rehvenge’s a tortured bad boy though, which makes me adore him no matter his serious faults because believe me he has them.
J.R. Ward opened up Rehvenge in Lover Avenged and he became my favorite alpha male character in BDB (at least one of them).  In fact…I’m going to re-read his book soon. I have missed him.  *sigh*
So…for the hop…I’m giving away a paperback copy of one of the previous BDB books (not The King since it’s not in paperback yet) to one lucky winner.   



BLM’s Giveaway

Giveaway is OPEN to U.S. Residents ONLY.

Winner will win a paperback copy of one of the BDB books.  (the only one not offered for the giveaway is The King since it is not in paperback yet)
Winner will be announced at the end of the blog hop.
Make sure to read BLM’s giveaway policy and then Enter the Rafflecopter below.
