A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrates his prison and unintentionally starts a riot. It’s easy enough to quell an uprising, but for the first time, Hades is torn between delivering justice — bestowing or mercy — on the beautiful female who could be his salvation…or his undoing.

Thanks to her unwitting participation in another angel’s plot to start Armageddon, Cataclysm was kicked out of Heaven and is now a fallen angel in service of Hades’s boss, Azagoth. All she wants is to redeem herself and get back where she belongs. But when she gets trapped in Hades’s prison domain with only the cocky but irresistible Hades to help her, Cat finds that where she belongs might be in the place she least expected…

In this emotional and sexy New Adult debut from Brighton Walsh, the only thing more frightening than commitment is hope…...

Aspiring chef Cade Maxwell is immediately, viscerally attracted to Winter Jacobson. But it’s not her mouthwatering curves he’s drawn to—it’s the strange emptiness in her eyes. When Cade saves her from a drunken customer with grabby hands, he’s shocked at her response…...

Winter doesn’t need Cade’s help. After a lifetime of getting by on her own, she’s happy to rely on herself. She’s exactly seventy-six days away from graduating college, and if she can hold it together that long, she’ll finally be able to rise above the crappy hand she was dealt.

But now, every time she turns around, Cade is there, ready to push her, smile at her, distract her from her plans. Winter knows she can’t afford to open up—especially to a man she’s terrified to actually want….

We’re back from our short hiatus….

We’re back from our short hiatus.  Sorry we didn’t announce it before we left, but it was a spur of the moment trip.  We were supposed to go to Maryland, but due to Lil’ Sidekick getting sick and hubs getting over his sickness we didn’t get to go.  This Book Lovin’ Mama didn’t get to be apart of her Commencement Ceremony, but that is A-OK….because I had already received my degree last summer.  =)

The hubs and I decided 14.5 hours to and from would’ve drove us all crazy for just to spend one full day in Maryland.  Well…instead we packed our belongings and went to a Cabin for 3 nights.  Let’s just say it was less stressful and as you can tell from the photo below of Rambunctious Preschooler….she had a blast at the cabin.  She didn’t want to leave.  This Book Lovin’ Mama got a chance to sit back and read. I even got into the pool with her girls to swim.   Continue reading

Mini Interview with Jade Lee + #Giveaway

Today we excited to welcome Jade Lee to the blog! Jade’s latest title, 50 Ways to Ruin a Rake, is out May 5th and marks the beginning of her hilarious new Rakes & Rogues series. To celebrate her new release, Jade is here for a “mini-interview” and has answered a set of three questions for us!


1.  If you could live inside any book, which one would you choose?

I like my electronic devices, so that leaves out any historicals. And any place without decent lattes isn’t someplace I want to live. But honestly, I love what I do. I write the stories I love, have a wonderful family, a soft loving cat, and I get to kick ass at racquetball. Why would I want to be anyone else?

2.  If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring three items, what would you bring? Continue reading
