This week I chose:

"The Name of the Star"
by Maureen Johnson
Release Date: Sep 29, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago.

Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

Oooh, love this time period, it's soooo creepy!! And it's by Maureen Johnson!! What's not to love!?

Review Goddess With A Blade by Lauren Dane

Title: Goddness with a Blade
Author: Lauren Dane
Source: Netgalley
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Authors website

Armed with a blessed blade and blood from a goddess, Rowan Summerwaite’s got a divine mission. Embodying a Vampire’s worst nightmare is a big job, but someone’s got to do it.

Freshly returned from a political firestorm that erupted after she’d executed the last Scion, Rowan hopes for a period of peace and quiet with the new replacement.

But before long, human women are being found in and around Las Vegas and it’s clear to her the killer is a Vampire. Clive Stewart rules his Vampires with an iron fist in the wake of a spectacular failure on the part of his predecessor. He doesn’t make the mistake of underestimating The Hunter. He knows she’s a predator just like him so he agrees to help her investigation. Within limits.

But nothing between Clive and Rowan stays within the lines and before long, things are tangled and dangerous both personally and professionally



It’s been a while since I hit a book that I didn’t like, I knew it was coming. Goddess with a Blade is pure Urban Fantasy and one I didn’t care for. I got this book off of netgalley under romance (they so need a category for UF) and as most of you know romance is what I love, so I figured since I loved Lauren Dane’s Chase brothers this one would be alright, so not, I should have looked on Lauren website before I requested this one ugh. The majority of the book is written in Rownas POV and the romance is so not there, but you do get a couple of sex scenes. I have to hand it to Lauren she can go from romance to urban fantasy very easy. If you’re a UF reader you’d love I because it has your typical bad lady lead that loves fast cars, and let me tell you she has the mouth action that goes along with the kick butt action. The villain is very dangers and creepy, so this bring me to let you know this is not for the faint of heart. If you’re a romance reader looking for a paranormal love story you may want to wait for some more reviews before going out and buying it. 

Time Travel Tuesdays - Dr. Wertham Speaks Out on Romance Comics!

Crime and horror comics bore the brunt of Dr. Fredric Wertham's attack, but did you know that he wasn't too keen on romance comics either? Below are a few of my favorite quotations on the love genre from Dr. Wertham's infamous book, Seduction of the Innocent!*


The experts had said that what the children need is aggression, not affection -- crime, not love. But suddenly the industry converted from blood to kisses. They tooled up the industry for a kind of comic book that hardly existed before, the love-confession type. They began to turn them out quickly and plentifully before their own experts had time to retool for the new production line and write scientific papers proving that what children really needed and wanted -- what their psychological development really called for -- was after all not murder, but love! (p. 37)


In many of them, in complete contrast to the previous teen-age group, sexual relations are assumed to have taken place in the background. Just as the crime-comics formula requires a violent ending, so the love-comics formula demands that the story end
with reconciliation. (p. 38)


Studying these love-confession books is even more tedious than studying the usual crime comic books. You have to wade through all the mushiness, the false sentiments, the social hypocrisy, the titillation, the cheapness. (p. 38)

"Trail to Romance"
Cowboy Love #10
(June 1950)


It is a mistake to think that love comics are read only by adolescent and older children. They are read by very young children as well. An eight-year-old girl living in a very comfortable environment on Long Island said, "I have lots of friends and we buy about one comic book a week and then we exchange. I can read about ten a day. I like to read the comic books about love because when I go to sleep at night I love to dream about love." (p. 39)


Flooding the market with love-confession comics was so successful in diverting attention from crime comic books that it has been entirely overlooked that many of them really are crime comic books, with a seasoning of love added. Unless the love comics are sprinkled with some crime they do not sell. Apparently love does not pay. (p. 40)

Love Experiences #18
(April 1953)


False stereotypes of race prejudice exist also in the "love comics." Children can usually pick the unsatisfactory lover just by his looks. (p. 105)


Love comics do harm in the sphere of taste, esthetics, ethics and human relations. The plots are stereotyped, banal, cheap. Whereas in crime comics the situation is boy meets girl, boy beats girl; in love comics it is boy meets girl, boy cheats girl -- or vice versa. (p. 185)

"Quicksand Romance"
My Secret Life #25
(January 1950)


I wonder if Dr. Wertham ever read any post-Code romance comics? I think he would have rather liked their wholesome nature!

Character interview with Felicity Heaton character Lealandra

Interview with a sassy witch

Thank you to the lovely Laurie for inviting me to come here today and chat with everyone as part of my Paranormal Pandemonium 2011 Blog Tour for my eight book releases this year.

I guess that I should probably introduce myself so you all know who I am. I’m Felicity Heaton and I have written over forty paranormal romance and science fiction romance stories. I write as Felicity Heaton for the most part, but I also write my Vampires Realm series as F E Heaton. Most of the time I’m writing paranormal romances about vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters or dark angels, but sometimes I write about witches and demons too, and that’s where my new book comes in.

Ascension is the first book in my new Shadow & Light Trilogy series. It’s a passionate and action-packed urban fantasy romance featuring a powerful kick-ass witch heroine, Lealandra, and a snarky kick-ass dark half-demon hero, Taig.

Today, I have had a chance to interview Lealandra and catch up about her life and the series.

FH: I have Lealandra here with me today to talk about her book, Ascension. Firstly, can you tell us a little about yourself?

Lealandra: Sure thing. I’m a witch, and I come from a long line of witches. My family is old enough that we attract strong magic, the sort that has needs and desires. As long as we fulfil the needs of the magic that we host in our bodies, all is good. Since my magic found me, I’ve studied with it, learning to control it and to use the power it grants me. I’ve been with two covens in my time, one in the New York State countryside and one in New York City. They were both very different places and, looking back, I’m not sure that I made the right decision in moving to the city coven. Some people might think it’s crazy that I’m saying that I’m a witch, but it’s true. We keep out of the limelight as much as possible so normal people don’t find out about us, but sometimes it’s difficult, especially because of the war between demons and witches. We’re fighting over territory and I don’t think anyone knows why anymore. It’s a hatred that’s bred into us from generations past, and I’m a firm believer that it’s something that we now need to overcome so we don’t drag humans into our conflict.

FH: Can you tell us about what happened in your story?

Lealandra: I don’t like to think too much about it because it was a hard time for me. It was frightening enough discovering that I had started the ascension, let alone coming under attack from someone who wanted to kill me. The ascension is a time when the magic inside a witch grows to reach the pinnacle of the power it can achieve with a mortal body as its host. Most witches don’t go through the ascension. They’re rare, and it’s even rarer to survive one. My mother went through one and she almost killed me and my father when the final stage happened. My father was very brave and managed to save her. She hasn’t been the same since though. I was always afraid that I was going to end up the same way if I went through the ascension and survived. When someone killed Charlie, I didn’t know what to do. Charlie was my counter-balance. That’s a fancy term for someone who can take a little of my power, like siphoning it off, so it doesn’t get beyond my control. When he was shot, I thought it was over, I wasn’t going to survive. I had needed him to take part of my power during the final stage of the ascension or it would kill me. Then other things happened, and I fled my coven, and eventually I found the courage to seek help. It’s not easy walking back into the life of someone whose heart you broke, especially when that man is also an incredibly powerful half-demon and hunter with a bit of a temper. I was lucky that Taig was in a good mood night that and that he agreed to help me, even if his price was rather high.

FH: In Ascension, you meet Taig again after a period of six years apart. How was it seeing him again after all that time and was it frightening to walk back into his life after you had been the one to leave him?

Lealandra: I couldn’t breathe at first. Walking into that grim smoky bar and seeing him sitting there, nursing a drink, looking just as I remembered him in my dreams and in my heart, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can be stubborn as hell on a good day, and I’m not one to admit defeat, but I knew what needed to be done if I was going to survive my ascension and the madman who was after me. I needed someone who could not only find and defeat the person after me, but who could help me through my ascension and help me control my power. Taig could do that for me. When he noticed me, I almost bolted, but my feet wouldn’t move. I loved him so much all those years ago, and I still loved him. He’s the only man I’ve ever truly loved, even if he wanted to deny that feeling existed in me. I deserved his anger in payment for the pain I caused him. I walked in there knowing that, but I hadn’t expected him to kiss me back when those demons walked in and I panicked and kissed him to hide myself. When he kissed me, it was game over. I needed him all over again.

FH: Your relationship with Taig is complicated and forbidden to say the very least. Was it difficult at first when you started working together again? Taig can be quite stubborn and troublesome, so was it hard to crack his tough exterior and piece his heart back together?

Lealandra: Taig is impossible. One moment he’s the nicest guy in the world, open and loving, passionate and protective, and the next he’s hell-bent on making me pay for the hurt I caused him by leaving him to be with my counter-balance and the coven. Witches and demons don’t mix. Most people see a relationship between the two species as sacrilegious and disgusting, something worthy of punishment. When I fell for Taig, I wasn’t really thinking about what people say we should feel for each other because of what we are. I fell for a crazy, stubborn, gorgeous guy. I never realised just how much I missed him, and how much I hurt him, until we met again. Or how much he missed me. It was hard to move past what had happened between us, and even harder to make him believe in my feelings for him, but I’m not one to back down from a fight.

FH: How has life been since the events that happened and brought you together?

Lealandra: It’s been so peaceful. Taig took me to England and his family home, and I’ve learned so much about my magic. I’m growing more in touch with it and I’m learning a lot from some ancient witches that Taig knows. As for our relationship, we still have our ups and downs. Nothing is ever smooth sailing between us. We’re both so stubborn that we’ll fight tooth and nail to get our own way about some things, like hunting marks and the coven. Taig is dead set on me keeping away from covens from now on. He thinks I can learn all I need from the local witches, and in a way he’s right, but witches have a tendency to flock together. We have visitors quite often from my old covens and that gives me some company, and it’s enough for now. Taig is going through a lot at the moment and really needs me with him, and I don’t intend to leave him again. Not now, and not ever.

FH: Your story, Ascension, is a book in a series. In my interview with Taig, he mentioned that you’re the stars of the series and there there’ll be three books about you. What can you tell us about those books?

Lealandra: Well, I’m not sure how much I should say. Did he mention that they were going to be as action-packed as the first novel? *FH nods* Hmm, I guess I could say that I’m going to get my wish and we’re going to end up finding out what happened to Taig’s parents, and that it isn’t going to be an easy journey. The next story is as fraught with danger as the first, if not more so. It’s certainly going to be one hell of a read. Taig has only just started to understand the barest threads of his power, and I’m delving deeper into mine. There’s no telling where this is going to lead us.

FH: Describe yourself in one word?

Lealandra: Determined.

FH: That certainly suits you. Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting. Is there anything else that you’d like to add?

Lealandra: Only a brief thank you to you for interviewing me, and a tip-off to the readers that they really should check out my story, if only so they can fall in love with Taig just as I did.

If anyone has any questions they want to pose to Lealandra, or to myself as the author, I’d be happy to answer them if you leave a comment on this blog post.

If you’re a reader looking for an action-packed, magical and passionate urban fantasy romance with a difference, then head on over to my website and check out the excerpt of Ascension: http://www.felicityheaton.co.uk

Ascension is available now in e-book format direct from my site, on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBookstore and other retailers, and is also available in paperback from Amazon.

Felicity Heaton
A witch on the verge of achieving phenomenal power, Lealandra must turn to her half-breed demon ex-lover Taig for protection from the dark force that is after her and also from her own magic.

With her Counter-Balance dead and her coven against her, Taig’s blood and power is the only thing that can help her control her magic and survive the ascension and gain the strength to defeat her enemy.

Old feelings come flooding back as Taig allows her into his world and Lealandra finds herself fighting not only for survival but to win his broken heart again and heal the pain in their past. Can he forgive her for walking out on him all those years ago and will he ever believe her when she tells him that he’s not a monster but the man that she loves?

Felicity Heaton is a romance author writing as both Felicity Heaton and F E Heaton. She is passionate about penning paranormal tales full of vampires, witches, werewolves, angels and shape-shifters, and has been interested in all things preternatural and fantastical since she was just a child. Her other passion is science-fiction and she likes nothing more than to immerse herself in a whole new universe and the amazing species therein. She used to while away days at school and college dreaming of vampires, werewolves and witches, or being lost in space, and used to while away evenings watching movies about them or reading gothic horror stories, science-fiction and romances.

Having tried her hand at various romance genres, it was only natural for her to turn her focus back to the paranormal, fantasy and science-fiction worlds she enjoys so much. She loves to write seductive, sexy and strong vampires, werewolves, witches, angels and alien species. The worlds she often dreams up for them are vicious, dark and dangerous, reflecting aspects of the heroines and heroes, but her characters also love deeply, laugh, cry and feel every emotion as keenly as anyone does. She makes no excuses for the darkness surrounding them, especially the paranormal creatures, and says that this is their world. She’s just honoured to write down their adventures.

The Sims 3 Generations, are you read for it?

I have to admit at first I wasn't really looking forward to this expansion pack. Until I seen that the Sims can woohoo in the shower *Oh, yeah now were taking*. I have always wondered why that didn't have that feature. Now that they have, you guys know what I will be doing when I get it and start playing;-)LOL

Arc review Lady of Seduction by Laurel McKee

Title: Lady Of Seduction (The Daughters of Erin #3)
Author: Laurel McKee
Source: Requested review
Format: Mass paperback
Release date May 31, 2011
Authors website

It's a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn't expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands . . . and with it, her heart.
Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered nor will he ever forgive himself. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland-or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he dream of ever letting her go?



My first Laurel McKee book and I really enjoyed it. I loved the setting, the storyline was fantastic and so is the writing style of the author. I know I will be going back to read the first two books because I do believe I missed out on some things in the story. You get suspense, danger, secrets, and some smoking hot sex because these to go at it right of the bat. I believe the author done her homework research in writing this book it shows out nicely.

 I recommend anyone to start at book one because like I said I felt like I was missing the connection between these two and I wanted to know what it was really bad. What I disliked most was it read like Grant went to this island to get away from Caroline, but when she arrives he just forgets he shouldn’t be with her and goes at it right off the bat and never stops, although he would mention at times that he needed to leave her. Caroline is quite clanging to Grant and she stays there with no fuss whatsoever. Let’s say it left me scratching my head at times in wonder why there wasn’t more tension between these two. I did like reading both characters Grant has a mystery about him and Caroline is tuff as nails and that’s what Grant likes the most.

Memorial Day Romance - "Love Lies Deep and Cold" Time for Love #16 (May 1970)

I hope you all are having a lovely extended Memorial Day weekend. This federal holiday isn't just about cook-outs and the start of summer vacation; it is a day for honoring those who have died during military service.

In recognition of this day of remembrance, I have for you a story called "Love Lies Deep and Cold" from Charlton's Time for Love #16 (May 1970). Story art is by Luis Avila.

In this moving splash page, we learn that newlywed Leah has just lost her husband, Ken. One of the unlucky ones, he was killed while serving in Vietnam.

Ken is given a full military burial. After the funeral, Leah goes back to the home they shared -- almost expecting for Ken to come bursting through the door as if nothing had happened at all.

One morning, Leah's neighbor Ben Tibbs comes to the door looking for bandages for his mangled hand. He fought in Vietnam too, but made it home alive. Tragically, when Ben came home from war, he was notified his fiancée had been killed in an accident. That night after meeting Ben and while lying in bed, Leah thinks about Ben's tragedy and is deeply saddened. Clearly she is suffering from depression as she thinks to herself, "What a rotten life... I wish I were dead!"

Finally, she decides she cannot fall asleep and ruminates between taking sleeping pills or going for a walk. She decides to go on a walk to avoid having her usual nightmares. She goes by the river and leans over the edge of the bridge and contemplates jumping. She is stopped from acting on her impulses by the sudden appearance of Ben Tibbs, her neighbor. Having taken a vow that she would never date again, Leah tells him to leave her alone and stop interfering with her life. Ben retreats, until out of nowhere a couple of strange men emerge from the shadows and start to attack her. Ben Tibbs hears her screams and comes to her aid.

After beating up the attackers together (yup, Leah clunks one on the back of the head with her shoe), Leah feels a little better about spending time with Ben. Soon, he starts running errands for her and she starts cooking meals for him. Before long, they even attend a movie together. Leah appreciates his company, but decides it is best to keep her distance for fear of falling in love with him. Leah successfully ignores Ben, until one night she smells smoke in their apartment complex.

Leah scrambles to notify Ben. Once both are safe from the smoke and flames, they admit their love for one another and Ben asks Leah to marry him. In spite of her vow to never love again, she says yes.

Despite her best efforts to run from love, Leah surrenders to it -- obviously moved by Ben's own tragic past. Kind of a bittersweet story, but I appreciate the unexpected grooviness of Avila's artwork and Charlton's acknowledgement of the hardships of war.

My Review -

This is a short, sweet read about Tehran, a young woman who feels alone and unloved on the world and Sebastian, a vampire who in his 400 plus years of "living" has never known what it is to love a woman until now.

Tehran literally crashes in Sebastian one night as she tries to escape a mob of men who want to plunder her body. What occurs next for the two of them is an unknown force that draws them together despite the fact that they have just met. However, because of a sense of betrayal Tehran resists what her heart tells her and flees from Sebastian while he struggles to win her heart.

I truly enjoyed this book as I feel the deep passion that Sebastian felt for Tehran. There is one scene in particular where Sebastian is on his front porch and he willing endures the sun's rays to in order to follow Tehran. That scene broke my heart and made my heart ache for his pain. The way the author describes Sebastian (mouth-watering) and that scene will make the reader want to scream at Tehran and smack her for being such a fool.

While I would have preferred the sex scenes to be more descriptive, the author did a marvelous job creating some very passionate and hot scenes.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a paranormal romance story with a passionate, brooding vampire who knows how to make you melt with his undead love.

New blood book blogger on the block interview

This month I have with us  Madame D's Boudoir . So, please give her a warm welcome and check out her review blog. It may become your next favorite blog.

Tell us a little about yourself?

Hmm... I'm 27, married to the first man I ever went out with, we have a four year old son, and live in a small town called Derry in Northern Ireland. I LOVE to read, and have recently tried my hand at writing my own saucy tales. When not having my nose stuck in a book, or my mind in the gutter, I work in the local Psych ward - believe it or not I'm a psychiatric nurse, very responsible. I met my best friend on-line and love her very much - she's as crazy as I am. LOL. Isn't that right Sue? *wink*

How long have you been reading? What’s your favorite genre?

I didn't take an interest in reading until I was about 15. I got a free book, The Secret Vampire by L.J Smith, in one of my magazines and fell in love with the characters in it. But my obsession with reading didn't start until about three years ago when I discovered the amazing Felicity Heaton and fell in love with her Nicholas from Eternal Kiss. I love her Vampires Realm series and I'm totally head-over-heels about her Winter - or should I say MY Winter. LOL. So as you can guess I'm a fan of Paranormal Romance. I'm also a huge fan of Historical Romance, all those Warriors of Old, Highlander in particular. I mean, who can resist a sword wielding hunk in a skirt. I for one can not. Mmm... just thinking about muscly man-thighs makes me melt *cough* Sorry!! LOL.

When and why did you start doing book reviews?

I only started up my blog in November last year, and started reviewing books around the same time. A friend of mine introduced me to Goodreads that September, and as I reviewed my books and started to get positive feedback she encouraged me to start up the blog. And that was that. I started making friends with some amazing women and they gave me their books to read and review, and now I'm addicted. But it's all for fun.

How long have you been reviewing books?

Like I was saying, I only started in November time last year and I'm totally addicted now. LOL. Hopefully mes petits cheris enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. *wink*
Do you take notes for your reviews while you read?
Of course!! I have a head like a damn sieve. If I don’t take notes I'll forget all the important stuff that will lure my followers in and get them to read all these amazing books. LOL.

Why did you start a book blog?

A friend of mine had one and I thought it was pretty cool. She encouraged me start my own and introduced me to several of her author friends, ladies who I love and stalk relentlessly now. LOL. I didn't really want to do it at first, but once I got hooked on the reading and people took an interest in my reviews I thought why not. And like I said before, I'm addicted now.

How long does it usually take you to read and write a review for your blog?

Ohh... it all depends on the book I'm reading. Usually I'll have a book finished in a day, but at times if the book is a little slow it can take me two or three days to read it. I read a book a while back and it took me nearly a week to finish it. But regardless of how long it takes me to read it I always have the review posted the day after. Unless it's an ARC and the author asks me to wait closer to the release date to post it.

What’s the hardest thing you had to do in setting up your blog?

Hmm... It took me a while to get used to everything - organizing the layout, posting things properly, thinking of ways to gain followers and have people love me. LOL. Since then I have started doing a few bookish memes, getting involved in blog hops and tours, doing author interviews and giveaways ect... so things are easier for me now. All I have to do now is make people love me. *wink* LOL.

What’s the most exciting thing that has happened to you since your started your blog?

Being asked to do this interview. *blushes* I'm so used to seeing author interviews on other blogs that when you asked me to participate I felt all special. Aww... LOL. But I do get excited every time I asked an author I love or one of my Girl Crushes - they know who they are - to do an interview or giveaway and they agree without hesitation. It makes my day. I love it that they take time out participate, makes me love them all the more.

What’s your favorite thing to do on your blog?

Author interviews, I love chatting to all those amazing women. An more recently the hunky male models who we see on the covers of our favorite sexy books. I have an interview with one such hunk coming up this month, so stay tuned. *wink*

Any tips, for a new upcoming book blogger?

Just have fun!! Don't stress out trying to create the perfect blog, just give it time and it will take shape eventually. Great things weren't built in a day and all that. Just enjoy your books, write your reviews, and the rest will come in time. *wink*

What are the most books you read in a week?

I once read ten books within a week. They were all by the amazing Kallysten. My #1 Girl Crush - I love you Kally *wink* LOL. I read her On The Edge andDemons Age series when she was my 'Author of the Month.' Most of them were short reads, but I'm still proud of myself for devouring that many books in the one week.
