loveratlast9. JR Ward gave us a tiny excerpt from Lover at Last yesterday. From page 43:

Blay leaned in, his upper lip peeling back from his fangs. “Just so we’re clear, your cousin is giving me what I need. All day long. Every day. You and me?” He motioned back and forth between them with the cigarette. “We work together. That’s it. So I want you to do us both a favor before you think I ‘need’ to know something. Ask yourself, ‘If I were flipping burgers at McDonald’s, would I be telling the fuckking fry guy this?’ If the answer is no, then shut the hell up.”

Wait. Blay and Qhuinn aren’t in love and having the dirty sex by page 43?? WTF JR Ward?

I kid. I kid. This book will kill me. Per Ward, this book came in at 189,000 words. For comparison purposes, about 10,000 less than Tohr’s book.

entwinedwithyou8. Speaking of the dirty sex – Sylvia Day also gave us a tiny excerpt this week. From Entwined With You:

I let out a shaky breath. “You’re a delicious extravagance for a woman, you know. A luscious, mouthwatering—”

“Shut up.” He dragged me under him before I knew his intent. “I’m filthy rich, but you just want me for my body.”

Read the full excerpt HERE. (Why do I love Gideon so much?)

touchandgeaux7. Now to things that are not sexy, why does one of my absolute favorite series get covers like these? *sobs* I feel like this will make people not familiar with the series hesitate to try it. And this series is soooo sexy. Anyway….Riptide released the blurb to Touch & Geaux this week!!!

After having their faces plastered across the news during a high-profile case, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have become more useful to the Bureau posing for photo ops than working undercover. Just as Zane is beginning to consider retirement a viable option, Ty receives a distress call from a friend, leading them to a city rife with echoes from the past.

New Orleans wears its history on its streets, and it’s the one place Ty’s face could get him killed. Surrounded by trouble as soon as they land, Ty and Zane are swiftly confronted with a past from which Ty can’t hide—one with a surprising connection to Zane’s.

As threats close in from all directions, both men must come to terms with the lives they’ve led and the lies they’ve told. They soon discover that not all their secrets are out yet, and nothing lasts forever.

If you follow Abigail Roux on Tumblr, you will have noticed there is a character named Liam Bell that may come between Ty and Zane, or something like that. Here is the link to the Tag for Liam Bell (who she casts as Tom Hardy. Sweet jesus). It makes me all very nervous. I seriously am dying for this book – set to release this April. And as always, if you have yet to read this series – start with Cut & Run – and catch up by April!

nocover-blank-133x1765. Nalini Singh is an evil, evil woman. See how the cover above is blank? Per the blurb for Psy/Changeling #12 set to release June 2013:

Get ready for a major event in the smash-hit New York Times bestselling series—a secret finally revealed, and fans are guaranteed an epic surprise.
In 2006, Nalini Singh introduced the beguiling and sensual Psy/Changeling world in Slave to Sensation, which spawned a series that has had readers and critics cheering. Throughout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini’s legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly-awaited twelfth book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy/Changeling mystery—an answer so surprising we wouldn’t dare spoil it. Even if we knew.

Features a secret so shocking, the title can’t be revealed until publication

Oh the torture!!!! So this has to be the Ghost’s book…but who is the Ghost? Kaleb? Right? No? Read this post at Dear Author and come back and tell me Kaleb is not the ghost.


nakeyrower4. Do you want to see hot men rowing nakey? Of course you do!!! The University of Warwick Boat club have released a trailer of behind the scenes footage of them shooting their 2013 calendar. And the best part is, it’s all for charity, which means there is no guilt. Watch the nakey for charity y’al!! (they also frolic through a meadow naked).

Go HERE to watch the video (nsfw). Go HERE to buy the calendar.

All proceeds support one of my favorite charities, the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation. As I highlighted earlier this year, Ben Cohen has his own 2013 calendar. In case you need a refresher on his video. *wink*



leasthelpful3. This comes from a cute website that collects the least helpful reviews. At least I know never to buy these penis earphones! Whew.


2. If I was on an elevator and the lights went out and when they came back on there was that little girl screaming at me, I would pee my pants. I’m not kidding!!! A scary yet really funny prank. These poor people. LOLOLOLOL.


wineicecream21. Could this be the most PERFECT FOOD EVER INVENTED???? Wine Ice Cream. Zomg. 5% alcohol -  each pint has the equivalent to a 6 ounce glass of wine. Flavors include: Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Red Raspberry Chardonnay and Riesling. They will even mail it to your house on dry ice. For more info go here.

Happy Friday everyone!!

    “why does one of my absolute favorite series get covers like these? *sobs*”

    I know, I hate this cover…. and I really could have done without that last line of the blurb. I see a bumby ride for our boys coming up. This makes me very sad. Even with the Tom Hardy reference, I really want Liam Bell to go away.

  2. Lege Artis says

    Nalini Singh, KMM and Abi Roux are killing me together!
    Ghost’s book…. ::starring in a wall oblivious to everything else::
    Penisy earphones- I died when I saw that…

  3. says

    Ty, Zane, and Qhuay all releasing so close together? My lady boner may never recover from such intensive exposure. Good thing I’ve already got those days approved as Vacation!

  4. says

    I’ve been following Rou’x Tumblr site and everyday I tell myself I need to quit reading it. It’s freakin’ torture to read all these little snippets and wonder if we’re going back to angsty Ty and Zane again. SOB. I loved it when they were together. Can’t they just be together with no problems, and the conflict come from some outside source? Pretty please?!

    I think waiting until April for T&G might kill me. Just sayin’.

    When I saw that blurb for the untitled Psy/Changeling book I DIED. That book cannot come soon enough. That and LaL. OMG… so much goodness!

    The wine ice cream looks heavenly!

    “Wait. Blay and Qhuinn aren’t in love and having the dirty sex by page 43?? WTF JR Ward?”
    LMFAO I love you Mandi LOL!
    That excerpt is rough!! She is going to make this super hard for us hahaha.

  7. says

    Lol for Barbie, and yes that Abigail Roux cover is horrible. I can’t wait for the new Nalini Singh book! You know, we could not even bribe her mother to tell us some secrets last summer.
    Lol, wine ice cream, it had to be invented some day! And that ghost prank is downright evil.

  8. Selena says

    I love how badass Blay seems he’s gonna be in this book :) Qhuinn might be bottom. Just sayin’.

    How have I not heard of Wine Ice Cream?!?! *writes on Xmas list*


  9. bookster says

    that elevator prank is just so wrong it is hilarious! but very very wrong. I will think twice now before I take an elevator. How that little girl can keep a straight face is beyond me, amazing!!!

    Psy series – Way back I wondered about Anthony as the Ghost, then back and forth between Kaleb and Vasic. But when I read Dev’s story, with the Shine Foundation and The Forgotten, I put him in the mix. Now reading that post and others to refresh my mind, I’m thinking more it could be Dev Santos, Director of the Shine Foundation. The humans and The Forgotten have to be more a major factor at some point, and I always thought Dev was going to be a major player in a future book. Looking at Nalini’s character guide, Dev is descended from the Psy, telepathic, can mentally control computers and enter the Shadownet. And Katya is mated to him and part of the Shadownet, but also still linked to the Psynet. Will be interesting to see if any of us are right.
