Paperbacks that I've purchased:





Blurb:

WIFE WANTED…

Italian billionaire seeks faux fiancée. Willing to agree to anything in return...

In order for his sister to marry, Italian billionaire Michael Conte has to find himself a bride – and fast! When he learns that photographer Maggie Ryan is going to be in Milan, Michael hatches a plan to introduce her to his family as his “fiancée.” Never mind that Maggie is confident, independent, and a control freak. Never mind that she’s everything he doesn’t want in a wife… and everything he wants in his bed!


Convinced that Michael is in love with her married gal pal, Maggie agrees to keep up the ruse if he’ll keep away from her friend. Besides, she’s not attracted to charming, ridiculously hot billionaires who drive her nuts. Once they’re in Italy, however, everything changes – and the sexual tension between Maggie and Michael goes from simmer to naked nuclear meltdown!

But have they found the perfect arrangement… or are they trapped in a make-believe marriage?










Blurb:

When her father died, Honor Tate inherited the alpha position for a pack of werewolves based in New England. But why her? Honor would have rather just lived a “normal” life, with the occasional run through the woods in her furry suit. Still, Honor was raised to put the welfare of the pack first…and now it’s time to make a formal request that the alpha of the Silverback clan—the pack to which all locals owe fealty—recognize her as alpha of the White Paw. But instead of sending his support, the Silverbacks send Logan Hunter.

Logan Hunter would do anything to protect the Silverbacks—but his devotion comes with a price. For years he has been fighting his alpha instincts and the need for his own pack. But all that changes when Logan is sent on a mission to find out whether the new White Paw alpha really has what it takes to carry on her father’s legacy. Powerful, spirited, and downright gorgeous Honor exceeds his expectations…and leaves him howling for more. Could it be that he’s finally found his alpha mate? Or will old enemies, dueling loyalties, and an appetite for destruction stop him dead in his tracks?








This is the 5th book in this series. I still have to read the 4th book. I'm so behind. :(

Blurb: 

He’s a lone wolf—for now.

In Polecat, Alaska, Rachel Miller and Jake Hunter have a mutual admiration for each other—from across a lake. There’s nothing Rachel likes more than spying on the very fit wilderness guide when he skinny-dips each night. And Jake has always been curious about his reclusive artist neighbor. He even bought Rachel’s first wood carving: a wolf who looks suspiciously like him...

Jake is a werewolf, but not just any werewolf. He’s the founder of WARM (Werewolves Against Random Mating). And that means a human like Rachel is off-limits, no matter how attractive he finds her.

But when Rachel is threatened by a bear, and Jake shifts to save her, their lives collide with an intense passion, one that could change everything they’ve ever felt about themselves—and each other...









Blurb:

Some bedtime stories are told to protect the future... Brooke Silver's comfortable life, nestled in historic Greenville, South Carolina, is completely shattered when her childhood friend comes up missing. Looking for answers, Brooke becomes entangled in a perilous investigation. As Brooke chooses to use herself as bait to capture the ominous evil that has taken her friend, she must place all her trust in one man, Keegan Brennan. They must find a way to work together or face a nightmare that will destroy the packs forever.








Blurb:

Kiley Bryn wants what every girl wants. True love and a happily ever after. Too bad for her, that'll never happen. She's met "the one", it didn't last, and unlike with mortals, Werewolves mate for life. No exceptions. That is until she meets the very human Bryson Cormac. But when her ex decides he wants her back, can she manage to keep Bryce alive long enough to figure out her own heart?

With a newly turned werewolf as her partner, an overly possessive pack leader, and an ex that wants to destroy everything she's ever cared for, life just seems to be tumbling deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. The past won't take no for an answer, and neither will the present. All she's got to do is decide which one she wants for her future, and that's only made harder by the most important fact of all: both guys are playing for keeps.

    1. I like Vicki Thompson's series a good bit but it isn't my favorite. Hence the reason I haven't read the last two books yet.

      There are just too many good books and not enough time. lol!

      Delete
    2. I have a few of hers. My aunt really likes them. The few I've read from her were funny. I really like Christine Warren. I've only read a couple of her but I thought they were good.

      Delete
    3. Oh and Miki I'm ordering the Escaping love from amazon tonite. Im going for the pb. I'll get the 1st too but I know that just an ebook, its only like 65 pages or something really tiny. I'll let you know how it is once I read it.

      Delete
    4. I just saw that you said you bought it! LOL Great minds think alike? :D

      Delete
    5. Yes. Christine Warren's books are great. Very hot too. ;-) There have been a few that I didn't like as well and a few that I prefer but either way they are worth reading!

      Delete
    6. Its like that with alot of authors though. Overall I really like her. :)

      Delete
    7. i will try to see , if i go to sales, if they have the first of Vicki lewis thompson ( they don't need to be read in order also i was told but i still prefer to do so^^), just in case i was a funny read

      Delete
    8. I know I didnt read them in order. (ive only read a few) but generally I do prefer reading them in order.

      Delete
    9. i'm glad you are confirming this^^ i do hope to start by book one but if they have some ( which is not sure at all) it's no guaranty they have all the number and then if i want to see what it's in sale the chances are dropping even more^^ ( now i do have other i want to get first so if i have to wait it's bnothing, i'm just curious about what i will find if i do manage to go)

      Delete
    10. Good luck! Im sure you'll find some good stuff. Maybe not what you originally went for but something good. :)

      Delete
    11. i do hope.. oki to start i really hope i will go because today it was cancelled again... now finding something will be an adventure ( i will tell you if i do) because we are generally years late so i'm sure you could see book you have read and loved and i will see some i never heard about^^

      Delete
    12. Yes but you may have some for us too. :) I hope you find lots of goodies! Even if they may be old its new for you so thats all that matters! :)

      Delete
    13. you hoped for nothing ç_ç..; NOTHING!!!! so sadly i have nothing to share today

      Delete
    14. Im sorry hun! Thats awful. :( Hopefully you will win some goodies or something to make up for it.

      Delete
    15. perhaps bt if it doesn't happen it's nothing there are time like that

      Delete
    16. Yes it still just seems a bummer. You've been looking forward to going for awhile, only to find nothing. :(

      Delete
    17. i was waiting for a month ^^ but nothing happen without reason so no need to get too depressed or too frustrated ( and at least now i know i must patiently wait until the deals on bookdepo^^ and i can save for that and for the gift i want to make to some people;)

      Delete
    18. aw.. :D Dont be surprised if you get an email in the near future of me asking for you address too. And maybe its a blessing in disguise and you'll find some great deal on book depo or something?

      Delete
    19. yes perhaps, êrhaps there will have a new operation with 10%off of everything on the bookdepo who knows^^

      you really have time^^ you have a convention to save for ^^ ( arf you could even use that as a reason to go on a books buying ban and make a big dent in your TBR pile)^^

      now you will receive a message because i need a little more info for my new idea ( still only a project but better to know what i need to search for)

      Delete
    20. That would be nice. :)
      and I plan on it. Only using giftcards or if theres a really special deal going on. Actually my mom last night wanted to go to the bookstore since ther was a coupon for 30% of your entire order. So we got quite a few then but saved a ton of money. She actually bought them for me which was uber nice. :)
      and your message didnt come through. :( emails acting up so I just sent you one.

      Delete
    21. answered and 30% on your order yes that's a deals and a book buying ban can be put on hold for such a bargain^^ totally admissible^^

      it was really kind of her yes and you will have a list to give us in teh next book haul post then^^

      Delete
    22. LOL I knew you would agree with my thinking! :) I will definitely let you know what I got. And by then I may have won some more or something?

      Delete
    23. sure ^^ it would be wonderful and i wish you to

      Delete
    24. ^^ you have won more already ^^ ( i sent you an email^^)

      Delete
    25. :) I saw that. It made my day! :)

      Delete
    26. ^^ that's a fabulous news^^ i hoped it would enlight it ^^, now you will have to choose^^

      Delete
    27. I know Im still debating! :)

      Delete
    28. ^^ that hard? don't forget to tell me if you do receive it ( and what you did choose at the end)

      Delete
    29. Just got it. :) I picked the first in her series.

      Delete
    30. ^^ i hope you will enjoy it and that way you will be free to buy teh extended version in print it will have been done

      Delete
    31. That would be nice. I have the 2nd in print so it would be good to have the 1st too

      Delete
    32. when she answered my comment and greed to admit book 1 was a littel too rushed feeling incomplet and i was so glad not to have hurt her so when she told me she had project for the exten,ded version i was really happy

      Delete
    33. You were being honest not trying to hurt her so she totally understood that. I was going to buy book 1 but that when I saw 80 pages so I figured wait or get it in ebook. Im glad that shes going to do an extended version. That will be really nice. :)

      Delete
  2. lol! I just realized that all but one of the books are werewolf books. lol!

    1. it didn't skip my eyes^^ i guess you are in a werewolves mood not just shifter^^ at leats for a few days

      Delete
    2. haha i noticed that! I dont think shes ever not in a were mood! LOL

      Delete
    3. i happened, if you remember during a few days month ago she was full on contemporary ^^ ( perhaps because of review she had to do and such but she didn't have time for shifters and she even complained about it^^)

      also she told us she had a "vampire" moment^^ so shifter are a first love but it can be put aside sometime s( and if it like me then i go back even more when it's finished because i missed them too much)

      Delete
    4. I know I always seem to go to them and I have to stop myself sometimes and go no you have other books you have to read! :) I've been known to go on vampire kicks too so I cant complain. Im always happy to see reviews for either.

      Delete
    5. i love it toobut i'm still more shifter than vampires even if i do love a good book with them too

      Delete
    6. I do get in book moods. lol! Sometimes I prefer one or the other but I always seem to have shifters at the top of the list and I can't seem to stay away from them for very long.

      Delete
    7. that's something i love^^ i know i won't have to starve from shifters recmmendation for long.... i do read others but when i'm feeling down or not in the books, nothing is better than a shifters book to put me back on track

      Delete
    8. I'm the same way. I can't imagine not having shifter books waiting for me to read.

      Delete
    9. I always have to have at least one as a backup! LOL

      Delete
    10. It sucks right now cause im helping out another author on her blog with review requests and Im trying to review those and none of the picks I got were shifters. :( granted there still really good but Im not getting my fix! which can make for a cranky Amber! LOL

      Delete
    11. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes there aren't any shifter books that are touring and I'll sign up to review other books and I enjoy them but I really start getting testy until I can read a shifter book or two.

      Delete
    12. ^^ and if you look closely shifters books are generally release at the same time too so either we get a lot of tour with shifters books during a time or none ^^ so yes the solution it to always have one ready to jump on it when we need our fix
      ( since you are also reviewing i will think of some place where you can get book for reviews amber^^ perhaps shifters would be in them and you will get lucky)

      Delete
    13. aw thanks Miki! :D She gets alot but theres like 7 of us doing reviews for her. Its on the TheSmuttyKitty.com so its kinda first come first pick. I've liked the ones I've done so far.

      Delete
    14. I just read Lick by Kylie Scott and LOVED it! It was one of those wake up in vegas married but it was really good. I still have to write the review for it though. Im so bad at that. :( I always have trouble finding the right thing to say.

      Delete
    15. it happens to all of us^^ still i need to remember to give those special link when i come across them^^

      Delete
  3. Im trying to think what I got this week.. Oh I won A cursed Embrace by Cecy Robson, its like the 2nd or 3rh in the series so I need to get the others. Also won Take Me Under by Rhyannon Byrd. I was really excited too cuz I got a $25 Amazon GC in the mail that I won from a contest I didnt remember entering. So a good week on that front. I bought Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris and found the hc of Nalini Singhs Kiss of Snow at goodwill. I think thats all for this week? I know I got a few freebies on the kindle but I cant remember which ones.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. a really good week for you then, i'm happy for you. A cursed embrace is book 2 ( just release so you are that far behind) i have book 1 but i haven't read it yet

      Delete
    2. ok thats good! :) I ordered the 1st one from amazon last night. So hopefully early next week I'll get it. It sounds like a really good series.

      Delete
    3. I also totally went on a book buying binge today, I swear. I bought like 6 books. I got a new Terry Spear one and 2 anthologies, and one from Mary Roach. I read her non-fic book Stiff and LOVED it! I ended up finding one hers on bargain. I cant remember the others. So I think I met my buying quota for the week! LOL Or at least until I get paid again! :D

      Delete
    4. if i could have a buying quota per week that would be fabulous^^, it's more for month and if i get 2 i'm happy^^.

      which are the anthologies you picked?

      Delete
    5. um.. Hot Summer Nights and He's the One. I really like some of the authors in them so I figured why not. :)

      Delete
    6. LOL I dont really have a "quota" its more just when I see something I like and then ask if i can afford it. I could spend all my money literally on books.

      Delete
    7. You sound like me. I'd be in trouble if I didn't have my kids and hubby. I would spend way too much on books. Even now I go through spurts where I spend more than I should.

      Delete
    8. problem identical for all books lovers i think but it's better spent than on drug, shoes or something like that

      Delete
    9. That's what I always say when people ask me about my book addiction.

      Delete
    10. ^^ great minds think alike^^

      Delete
    11. Thats what I always tell my dad when he says I have to many books! I tell him at least Im not spending my money on drugs!!! Then I promptly stick my tongue out at him and go back to reading! LOL

      Delete
    12. and Holy cow Miki! I just glanced at the widget and your over 200!! yay!!! :D

      Delete
    13. lol! yay! I knew Miki would do it!

      Delete
    14. wasnt that her goal? So awesome! and holy cow I am too! how'd that happen? Now for us to stay there. LOL

      Delete
    15. Yes it was. Staying there is a goal but if I know her, she'll be trying for three hundred next. :p

      Delete
    16. first 250 dear, i try to be reasoonable no need to put a too high goal that i won't be able to reach in a timely manner it would just start to get depressing but 250 is feasable then we will see to jump higher and higher and at the end of the year we will be surprised^^

      so yes 200 step reached now to stay there ( since i already lost 10 posts since yesterday) and then climb and climb

      Delete
    17. lol! I've no doubt that you'll manage. It's so funny that you and Amber are so high up and everyone else is so low.

      Delete
    18. it's also due to the fact that the numbers dimish regularly so if someone doesn't come during a few days his number just drop and going back it's a little harder. now we are commenting each day so if you do post more than 300 post until the end of the year it's possible you manage but we also go back check answer on later post and perhaps others just go on recent one ( now if we do the giveaway post they would perhaps be interested to check backwards too^^)

      Delete
    19. Oh come on Miki you'll make 500 ;) LOL Its hard coming back from even missing a day!

      Delete
    20. We do do alot of backtracking. Im always back and forth between all the posts. Most people dont go back and see if they have people respond to them.

      Delete
    21. I think that is because a lot of people don't seem to consistantly respond. Also, some of the people only respond to enter giveaways. They don't really care if anyone responds so they don't bother to check. :-(

      Delete
    22. perhaps but we will perhaps tempt them to make it starting now ^^ don't worry
      ( and amber ^^ perhaps that putting several answers successively in th same post is a little cheating too, no? )anyway it just for ce me to be better at commenting?

      i guess it's also beacuse people are not used to get answer so they forget to come back and check ( i'm sure it happen to us even on some others blog), i admit it's one thing i appreciate with disq, i receive the answer to comment xithout having to go back to the blog( but i prefer blogger)

      Delete
    23. Sorry! :( I always forget something. (and dont worry Miki you still win!) LOL :( I like seeing what people respond.

      Delete
    24. don't worry it can happen dear it's just that seeing two at each post i had difficulties to answer all points/topic too^^

      Delete
    25. ^^ oki 250 done now up to 300 and trying to stay up 250^^
      courage amber you aren't far either!!

      Delete
    26. Im trying to keep up! If you dont make it this month you totally will next month! :)

      Delete
    27. 300 will be for next month i think if i comment on each new post ( one per day)=10+ the answer to olders post it would be hard to make 50 useful and interesting one^^ but as long as i reach that before the end of the year^^

      Delete
    28. Im positive that you will. At this rate with whats its averaging out to be Im sure you'll make it within the next month or 2

      Delete
    29. you did it already so yes july will see us both above 300 then you can see the next step for august^^

      Delete
    30. Huh so I did. LOL I didnt even look at what it was. It always bounces back and forth. So 350 for August?

      Delete
    31. not sure before end of september yes because yes now we have to stay above 300 and when we love more than 7 comments a day it's getting difficult to keep up^^ but we will manage

      Delete
    32. I think we will. But yea theres no one else but us so its just the 2 of us having a conversations.

      Delete
    33. other will start to be interested i'm sure^^

      Delete
    34. perhaps we are intimidating others... ( by teh way 350 should be possible early august if not before but then we will have to stay above that new level)

      Delete
    35. LOL I thought that too. They may be to scared to jump into our conversations. I hope that they do though!

      Delete
    36. we have always welcomed those who did so i hope they will dare to join us( arf the level was once again dropped ... i hate loosing comment^^)

      Delete
    37. I dont know how we are? We comment constantly!

      Delete
    38. iguess that after a few days/weeks they are not counted anymore so we comment so we manage sometimes to write as much as we lost ( sometime sno) but if you don't write for amoment you see how fast it drops..

      Delete
    39. I didnt think of it that way. But were still up there so I think we'll manage. :)

      Delete
    40. Look Miki! ~> were over 400!!

      Delete
    41. yes but i keep doing yoyo i was at 406 back to 401 back to 406... and i will have to stop for now because it's really past bedtime and i'm not in anyshape ready to spend a night awake^^ ( we had to go to an administration with my other, we went on foit it took us hours to wait in line and then for the person to do what she had too and after yesterday it's simply too much for me ( but they said it was going to be 37°c tomorrow and going worse after so i couldn't postpone it... ( still i will have to go out under that for my medical appointment friday and i'm not motivated at all)

      Delete
    42. Those are never fun! You get some rest. And I hope everything goes ok for you at your appt. Just get past this week and everything should get better.

      Delete
    43. i'm positive that's the essential but yes for the next 2 day i will stauy inside and be really really slow^^

      Delete
    44. yes just relax. and stay cool. Or if its storming there and cold then warm. :)

      Delete
    45. ^^ yesterday there was a storm but even then it was more than 20°c so staying safe will resume teh situation^^

      Delete
    46. i was nearly at 450 at midday but this eveneing it dropped under 440 still i think we could manage to reach at leats 480 before september^^

      Delete
    47. Remember when we were just trying to get to 100. LOL I think we can make it.

      Delete
    48. ^^not so far ago for sure^^

      Delete
    49. Its crazy how much we've gone up in these few short months.

      Delete
    50. yes and imagine how much we would be if we weren't loosing some regulary ( yesterday i was commenting and it kept going down i was at 450 then 428...so if w never lost our comment perhaps we would already reach 700)

      Delete
    51. LOL we'd probably be higher than that by now. :) if only i could lose weight this easy! :)

      Delete
    52. ^^ loosing weight that easier or quickly wouldn't be safe!! at teh moment i'm wondering because it looks like the comments i gain you loose and vice versa... which i don't understand because i checked the widget website and they said that it show the last 1000 comment, when i hadd them all we are just a little under 900 so ( yes we won't be able to reach 1000 or at least 500 but we could get both 450 min to leave some comment for others^^)

      Delete
    53. No it wouldnt! But a girl can still dream. :) We keep reaching it but then it drops again. :( though right now im really low since I havent been around to much the past 2 day. I have been going through books again and reorganizing stuff. Lots of heavy lifting. I did find some more doubles.
      I still have to see about mailing you stuff, cause then I may send you a list and see which ones you would like? Might as well go to a good home. :) I have to email Brenda too.

      Delete
    54. i checked ... it count only 900comment max for the whole top 10 ( you can add the number we havbe in it it never go above 900) so as soon as someone put a new comment another one loose one so reacher 500 wouldn't be possible and that also explain whil there is such a big gaps between us and the others they simply can't have 400 comment if we both have them already

      Delete
    55. oups and before i forget i still need to tell you about some rugulations and you are saving for you convention remember^^
      Did you finish reorganising your books or only part of them? ( that's true i'm curious)

      Delete
