Interview with Jennifer Bernard + giveaway!

One Fine Fireman: A Bachelor Firemen Novella  by Jennifer BernardThere is something almost irresistible about a fireman (or woman 😛 )  And Jennifer Bernard writes sexy hot, emotionally charged contemporary romances that star fire fighters! They will definitely warm you up this winter 🙂 I fell in love with the Firemen of San Gabriel series this past summer when I picked up The Fireman Who Loved Me on the recommendation of Dawn from Daydrmzzz Book Reviews. I connected with Jen’s writing, her sense of humor, the emotional depth in the relationships and yes, 😉 the steamy love scenes.

I vlogged about The Fireman Who Loved Me too Click HERE

I just finished reading One Fine Fireman and it’s a delicious treat as we wait for the 3rd full length novel Sex and the Single Fireman out the end of January!

Grab a virtual oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and settle in for my chat with Jennifer.

Oh! I’m giving one lucky commentor a kindle copy of the new novella One Fine Fireman. Comment with a sexy/silly/sweet fireman title idea to enter. 😉

La Revenant’s review of Ironskin

Ironskin  by Tina ConnollyI bought Ironskin, a new Young Adult book, a few weeks ago. It went on my want list when I added it to my New Release, October 2nd . But… I’ve been running like a hamster on a wheel and have not had a chance to read it yet. 🙁 I took a stack of books with me to visit La Revenant.

One of my favorite classics is Jane Eyre and Le Reve says it reminded her a bit of that. I need the book back… But I think she might be holding it hostage so I’ll come visit her sooner. 😛

Take a look at Ironskin and say hi to La Revenant please. 😉

La Revenant’s Review of


by Tina Connolly 

Ironskin, is an enchantingly delightful story suitable for young adults and on to the adult who are young at heart. I devoured it in one sitting, coming to know Jane and the other characters quite well. Relationships were built, intrigues pursued, and fights ensued throughout this story. One of the reviews of Ironskin stated the story was a “steampunk Beauty and the Beast tale…” I definitely felt the story had more in common with Jane Eyre than Beauty and the Beast. I even had a passing thought of Phantom of the Opera while reading Ironskin but I think that mostly had to due with the mask on Jane’s face. I’m eagerly waiting fall 2013 so that I can read the sequel to this story! I highly recommend reading this book if you enjoy magical tales that are set in an almost familiar world, a world as it might exist in an alternate stream of time.   Continue reading “La Revenant’s review of Ironskin”

Good Books!

Karen Stivali approached me in September and told me about Holding On and it’s book birthday November 25th and asked if I would like to read it. The synopsis grabbed me and I am delighted to say I loved this story! I might not have picked it up on my own and that would have been a shame. Karen is on my radar now 😛 And I’ll be watching for what she does next.

The Queen of Tarts review of Holding On

Holding OnQueen of Tarts Review of

Holding On

by Karen Stivali

 Holding On is a beautifully told story of two people who love each other and all the rich and varied details that make a life. I feel like I would recognize Marienne and Daniel if we could meet because they feel so very real. The author immerses you into their lives and weaves a colorful tapestry of their daily joys and challenges they experience and their choice to hold onto the life they are building together.  I loved this book.

Interview with J.A. Huss + Contest!!!

Clutch By J. A. HussI ♥ Junco

I love science fiction and I’m a bit of a geek. <g> I stumbled upon the I Am Just Junco books about 2 months ago and I am so glad I did. It’s an addicting series and I’m hooked on Junco and her adventures. I’m going to be stalking the author, J.A. Huss, until spring when the 4th book comes out.

I adore J.A. almost as much as I love her characters 😛 She lives in Colorado too and we need to get together for real, live, (non-virtual) hot chocolate soon. The reason we haven’t yet is Colorado is a big state! ok? lol

She rocks. She’s creative and funny and supportive and just plain nice! I am so happy that she’s visiting The Book Tart this week and I can pick her brain a bit about the future of Junco and ask her silly questions.

She is very generously offering one lucky commenter a signed set of all three of her books plus swag! Make sure you enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post. I’m tossing in a digital set, cause I love this series and so the contest is open to International entries too.

Grab yourself some hot chocolate (don’t forget the marshmallows!) and settle in for a fun chat. 😀
