Iam love  Illuminae  by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff  (omg such  good book) So I was  very excited to here that the cover for Gemina  Book 2 in the  series  got  revealed today !! and OMG is it so wonderful !!!.( Click the authors name  and book title for more information )




SYNOPSIS
The highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.” 
 
Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.
     The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestsellerIlluminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. 
     Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and theHypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. 
     When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
     But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.
     Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

INTERVIEW

1    Hi Aj  Thanks so much of answering these question the first thing i want to start out asking is how did you  come up with the idea for the Golden Key Chronicles ?
It is my utmost pleasure to be visiting with you today, JoDeen! Thank YOU for hosting me at your lovely blog! You know...I’m not really sure where I came up with the idea for The Golden Key. I’ve always been a bit of a panster, and I’m a huge fantasy romance reader by nature so, one day, I just decided it was time to try my hand at the genre. I had always wanted to write a fantasy and I had a general idea for the story, but honestly once I sat down at my laptop, the characters did most of the work. They told me what happened and I just sorta took dictation. It’s awesome when that happens. The book comes so fast and is such fun to write!

2    Can you  take us through  what your daily  writing process is?
It’s really pretty boring. LOL When I first get up, I check emails and post announcements to my street team while drinking medically dangerous amounts of coffee. Once the kids are up and I get them off to school...and hubs leaves for work...I sit down and write until about noon. Then I usually check emails again, shower and dress for the day. If I’m lucky, I can sometimes get in another hour or two of writing before I have to leave to pick up the kids, but that’s rare. My husband and I run a business from our home so, many days, I have to deal with business issues and return calls before leaving the house. Then it’s mom duty until bed, followed by another check of emails and handling any promotional issues.
 
3.  The Mythology  in this book is fascinating in my opinion ( Iam  huge mythology nerd lol) what was it like  creating it . Did you pull  any inspiration from any popular myths?
LOL! I love that you asked me this question!!!! I am a HUGE mythology nerd too...and once I’d completed all four books in the series, I thought it might be fun to delve a little deeper into the religious background  of the Austiere Kingdom...aaaaand that’s where things got tricky. You see, I’d already completed the first set of four novellas, so I had all these hints I knew I had to use in the mythology. The way Caedmon curses, for example. The way he references how Helios has no heart and that Selene is the moon goddess. So, in essence, I had to work backward. Take all those elements and come up with a story that would incorporate all the details I’d used in the original series. And I have to tell you, I was KICKING MYSELF for creating NINE GODDESSES! NINE? *repeated head desk* What the heck was I thinking??? So, I sat down and came up with a story that identified each goddess, as well as the love story between Helios and Selene, and how their union played a part in the creation of Caedmon’s world. At the time my daughter was eight or nine, I think? And one night I was helping her wash her hair and I thought it might be fun to tell her the story – G-rated version – just to see what she thought of my little fairy tale. Well, she made me tell her that story every night for months! No kidding. She fell so in love with it, I knew I had a winner. To this day, we refer to the sun as Helios and the moon as Selene. LOL

4.   Rowena is a kick ass strong female  heroine  , there have been   many  debates about what makes female characters  strong and what  doesn't  , what in your opinion signifies strength in female fictional  characters ?,  and can you tell us some of your favorite fictional  female heroine ? 
To me, there are several things that make a “strong” heroine, but I think the most important quality is self-confidence.  A belief that what she is doing is right and the determination to see her goals through regardless of the obstacles thrown in her path. I know this may sound strange coming from a married woman with two kids but, to me, there is really nothing sexier than a woman who knows her own mind. They just exude this poise and aura of assurance that is magnetic. Like, everyone wants to be them – or at least, I do – regardless of their size or age or whether or not their hair looks perfect.
Some of my favorite strong heroines are Jacqueline Carey’s Phedre in her Kushiel’s Legacy series. Kahlan Amnel in Terry Goodkind’s Sword of the Truth Series also comes to mind and so does Dagny Taggart in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.   

5   This Book is a lovely  mixture of  fantasy / time travel and romance  can you  share some  of your  favorite  books  , movies   and  tv shows  in these genres ? 
I sure can! For fans of fantasy I HIGHLY recommend Patrick Rothfuss’ King Killer Chronicles – it’s completely and totally brilliant.  If you like your fantasy super steamy, check out Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy Series. Holy hotness!!! Anne McCaffrey is one of my favorite authors and her Dragon Riders of Pern is an epic read.  

6.   What is up next  for you writing wise ?
Ooooooh! I’m so glad you asked!!! LOL I’m writing a super fun romantic suspense series that is in the process of being contracted right now!!! Whoo Hoo! So exciting!!! I had this story idea floating around in my head for YEARS and finally had the chance to write it, and I fell so in love with the characters and sub-cast, I decided to turn it into a series. Right now, there are only three books planned, but I wouldn’t be surprised if more are contracted in the future. I’m also working on a side project I plan to self-publish which is a little more of an inspirational chick lit, and then at some point I plan to write another set of novellas under the Golden Key name. I keep getting emails to continue writing that world...especially since I left one of the main characters in sort of a pickle. I gotta go rescue that poor prince at some point and give him a HEA. LOL

Character  Questions 
1.   Hi Caedmon  & Rowena  how  are you ? how are things around the castle?
Caedmon bows at the waist, gathering JoDeen’s hand for a soft kiss :  ‘Tis a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Lady JoDeen. Allow me to express the undying gratitude of this King and Queen for the honor of visiting with you.
Rowena elbows him in the side before taking a seat at the table : Caedmon, stop it. You’re making the poor girl blush.
A husky chuckle murmurs in his chest as he claims a chair, tossing a wink at Jolene.
 Rowena:  We’re doing wonderful, thank you for asking. Everyone at the castle is very excited about the impending birth of an Austiere heir.

Have you decided what you’re naming the baby yet ?
Caedmon and Rowena exchange a smile and she rubs a hand over her protruding belly:  Wesleigh, after Caedmon’s father if it’s a boy. Faedrah Isadora after his mother if we are blessed with a baby girl. 

2.   What is your favorite place in the castle (besides your bedchambers lmao )
A pretty blush tints Rowena’s cheeks as she glances at Caedmon, and he smirks before linking his fingers with hers: I much prefer the out of doors to the confines of the castle. The White Queen and I generally spend some time each morning touring the forest and that is my most treasured spot.

3.   If there was one gift you could give each other what would it be ?
Rowena’s brow rises. Well, Caedmon’s already given me the gift of my memories—

He clears his throat. Which you promptly returned.

Turning her head, she levels him with a withering glare.

And that is all I shall ever ask of you, my lady. He smiles. For with your dissent, I was given the gift of your heart.

Get to know more about  A J  Questions

1.   Favorite season ? Fall! Definitely Fall. I love sweater weather. And that’s when I can get my hands on loads and loads of fresh fruits and vegetables.

2.   Top  5 favorite  book boyfriends.?  Oh Lord. I have to pick just five? Okay, um. Broderick MacDougal from Arial Burnz’s Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles. Creighton Matteson from Vonnie Davis’ A Highlander’s Obsession. Kevin “Tuck” Tucker from Mackenzie Crowne’s To Win Her Trust (altho...Max Grayson in To Win Her Heart gives Tuck a serious run for his money), Jackson Granger from Kelly Moran’s Ghost of a Promise, and Caedmon from The Golden Key Chronicles. Sorry. I love that dude. LOL  

  IF you  could travel to one time period what would it be ? Probably the Renaissance. I am in love with that time period.

4    What are your reading right now  ? I just finished reading Sarah Grimm’s latest rock star romance WRECKED...and that’s exactly how it left me. Completely and totally wrecked. That book is brilliant. A must read!!!

5    If you  could invite   5   people  living   , dead  or fictional  to dinner who would they  be ? You know...I’d probably invite my author pals. God, I would so love for all of us to be in the same room together for dinner. It would be such a blast – Arial Burnz, Mackenzie Crowne, Kelly Moran, Sarah Grimm and Vonnie Davis would start the list, but I would probably add many more before the night was over. LOL These ladies are massively important to me. They are my dear, dear friends, my support system, my go-to business advisors and my critique partners. There would be nothing better than to spend the night with them, drinking wine and talking stories.

6    Anything else you like to  add  ? Just my utmost thanks for inviting me to your page! Thank you so much, JoDeen!!!

SYNOPSIS
He needs the kind of rescue only she can provide…

Glass artist Savannah Smith expected a marriage proposal for Thanksgiving—just not from her strong, silent, super-hot neighbor. But when misplaced mail and a wayward can of paint lands them in a compromising position right as her family arrives for dinner, they assume he’s “The One” she’s been talking about.

Then his family shows up.

Fate dealt a crippling blow to paramedic Beau Montgomery’s heart, and he isn’t about to put it at risk again. Except, with his mother crying tears of joy over his surprise engagement to the sexy little blonde next door, he can’t bring himself to ruin her “Christmas miracle.”

Somewhere between the paint can to the head and the chaotic family trip to the ER, Beau manages to talk Savannah into being his fake fiancée long enough to survive the holidays.

If, of course, they don’t fall in love first…





SYNOPSIS
Madison Foley is determined to stand on her own two feet, no matter how wobbly her circumstances. Fate, however, keeps throwing her off balance, and then sending heroically hot paramedic Hunter Knox to save her.

She’s put men on the back burner until she gets her life on track.

But Hunter’s got other plans. 

Decisions. Decisions.

My Waiting on Wednesday book for this week is Rebel Of The Sand by Alwyn Hamilton

SYNOPSIS
She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from. 

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's wanted for treason. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him...or that he'd help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is

REVIEW

Iam  very sad to  be ending the  series   it was such an adventure !! .In this  book we follow Caedmon  and Rowena  who have time traveled back into the future ( this is where Rowena is from) . It was so fun  to  see Oliver and  Violet  again and seeing how they're lives have changed over the last  two year it was also  pretty  funny seeing    Caedmon   reaction to  the future  lol

Seeing  Rowena and  Caedmon  relationship  evolve over these 4 books has really  been a pleasure. Watching them fall  in love,  trust  each other,  care for each other, have each others back ,  argue , sacrifice for each other,  fight for each other,   have  steamy time ( I could go on and on about these two lmao) .They have  sacrificed and went through so much  to  be with each other and  its  lovely  seeing them get  the happily  ever after they deserve

Everyone was  preparing  for war  and  let  me  tell  you those battle  scene  had me  at the edge of my  seat .This last  book was so  action packed !! there was  definitely  some twist and turns in  this book . The way somethings  happened and how it all unfolded  and resolved it self really caught me by surprise and kept me on my toes . 

The Golden Key Chronicles  was so  good and Breadric's Bane   was  a wonderful  conclusion to  this magical ,romantic ,fantasy ,timetravel  series and  I will definitely miss  Rowena and Caedmon along with the other wonderful cast of  characters in this series  . If  you have not  already started the series  I suggest  you  pick up  a copy of the first book (Rowena Key   )   in The Golden Key Chronicles as soon as you can !!!

5/5 Stars

ARC Book Review - One Texas Cowboy Too Many By Carolyn Brown

SYNOPSIS 
For good girl Leah Brennan, the only thing worse than falling for the dark-eyed, tattooed Rhett O'Donnell would be falling for a member of the off-limits Gallagher clan—or maybe both.

All Leah wants is to please her grandmother and bring some peace to the feuding town of Burnt Boot. With Tanner Gallagher—her forbidden, childhood crush—flirting with her and sexy Rhett showing up wherever she goes, Leah soon realizes that this may not be as easy as it seems… Will love be enough to conquer her family's hundred-year-old feud with the Gallaghers?










REVIEW

One Texas Cowboy too Many was a wonderful book!! I finished this book in one  day . It grabbed me and did  not let go until  the  very last word.

One of the main things you  learn  when you  come to the small town of  Burns Boots ( you guys know i love small towns  in my books lol) is there has been  Feud going on between the Brennan's and Gallagher's.  Two  families  who  operate two  different  ranches in the area  for  a very  long time . When I first  read the blurb before reading the book I was okay they have feud this should  be interesting . But OMG  these people take feuding to a completely different  level lol .When you  see some of the  stuff that  they do  to get back at  each other . I cant even tell you !.. you just have to  read it for  your  self lol . But trust me it makes this book so entertaining .

I loved Leah .I loved how much she loved her family,  but  at the same  knew when enough  was enough . It almost felt like Leah was  on  path  to discovering who  she was   away  from just  being apart  of her  family  and finding her happiness. And that was a beautiful thing to see. I felt she dealt with the love triangle quite well , I was very  happy  with who she ended up with in the end  ( I shipped them so hard )they were so  cute !!!.The romance in the  book was so  so good .  I found    that Carolyn Brown did  beautiful job writing it . 

One Texas Cowboy too many was Sweet,  funny , romantic( seriously so  romantic for all those that have  read it all iam  gonna say is .. the Ferris wheel scene!! that is all I have to say you  know what I am taking about )  sexy and the ending was perfect for the book . I was literally  reached the last page and  was like is that it  ? I want more lol  .If you  love all  these things in your books I suggest you  pick up this book when it come out March 1st,2016.

5/5 Stars

Cover Reveal - Music Notes By Lacey Black


Iam Very Happy To be Sharing The Cover for Music Notes by Lacey Black on this blog (isn't it so pretty?!!)





Music Notes
By Lacey Black
Release Date: 3/22/16
A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel

SYNOPSIS

Sing.
That’s what I came to do.
I was prepared to do just that until I walked into my audition and saw him. Tall, mysterious, and gorgeous to boot, he was sitting at the coaches’ table with three others, ready to judge my performance, and decide my future. Yet, since I’d walked onto the stage, he continued to look at anything but me. So, I did the one thing I was there to do: sing. When I opened my mouth and let those words spill from my lips, he finally looked up. Those startling, dark eyes collided with mine with such intensity that I knew one thing for certain: I would never be the same.
I am Layne Carter, newest contestant on Rising Star, the biggest singing competition on reality television. Nothing can stop me from giving this show my all. Not my horrible diva roommate. Not the fact that I’m terribly homesick and miss my family. And certainly not my uncontrollable growing attraction to my coach, Beau Tanner, award winning country superstar. Nothing will stand in my way.

And I’m wrong.
