The Book Tart heroes Forever Now (Spice Rack)










My Saving The Book Tart event is wrapping up this weekend but I’ll never forget all the support and encouragement I’ve received from the book community. My ceiling has been replaced and my wood floors will be fixed, my damaged personal belongings (including only a few books) will be taken care of by the insurance company (hopefully!)… But through all this nightmare craziness I’ve been blown away by everyone’s kindness. 🙂 Continue reading “Saving The Book Tart – Guest Post by Karen Booth + Contest!”

Guest Post

In light of the Book Tart’s stress, I thought I’d share some stress relieving tips. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t experience some level of stress at one time or another and some of us experience stress more often than not. Ugh, blerf!


  • Exercise. One of the best things I’ve found to combat stress or anxiety is to get off my butt and exercise. It doesn’t even have to be full-out-balls-to-the-wall exercise (although that’s great too). Simply doing twenty to thirty minutes of yoga stretches can help.


  • Limit alcohol intake: What? Yep, whereas getting loaded can definitely help with stress in the short term, when the buzz wears off, it can aggravate stress and anxiety. I don’t think a glass of wine or two or a beer or two will hurt, but try not to get sloshed. Ha


  • Put your stress in perspective. Is it really as bad as you think? Yeah, it feels bad. Yes, it’s frustrating. Yes, you might feel like crawling in a corner and crying, but is anyone going to die? If so, obviously you’ll disregard this one. But if not, you can overcome whatever it is.


  • Find humor. Laughing is a fantastic stress reliever. Take time out of your day to watch a movie or TV show that cracks you up, something that makes you snort-laugh like a freak. You’ll feel much better.




Thanks so much for having me here!





About Sempire Seductions:

The series revolves around Sempires–a species of demon who have some odd but sexy nutritional requirements.


Heroines: Araya is sweet and innocent. Valia is brazen and quirky. Navine is, well, kind of a bitch.

Heroes: Kean is a cocky playboy. Rydin is insanely alpha. Fin is a nice guy–er–demon.


Each story in the series features a unique hero and heroine, fun side characters, hot sex, and a little humor on the way to a happily-ever-after. If that sounds good to you, I hope you’ll check it out.

Even though she believes her captor to be crazy, she feels a connection to him she’s never experienced before.

When Rydin senses the Sempire who locked him up, fed on him and used him as a sex slave many years ago, he knows his wait for revenge is finally over. Burning with the need to punish her, he imprisons her in the demon realm, where she is at his mercy. But as much as he tries to ignore it, a connection sparks between them every time they touch.

Navine is suffering Incubus addiction–a death sentence for any Sempire. When the search for a cure turns up only one rumor, Navine is horrified to learn the mutant Fin might be her only chance to live. Fearing the taint of the mutant more than fearing death, she continues to push him away as she tries to deny how his touch inflames her.

Fin is captivated by Navine the first moment their gazes lock, but when she realized what he was–a male Sempire, an abomination–she rejected him. Fin is burning with the need to touch her, taste her and he’ll do almost anything to save her.

With time running out, passion must overcome prejudice to save Navine’s life and to grant Fin’s fantasy.
