<— Guess what’s on SUPER-SALE TODAY!!! Twilight Tenth Anniversary/Life and Death Dual Edition OMG!! Happy Valentine’s Day to us!!! *squeeeeee!!!*

Perfectly apropos (at least for me) today, since Twilight is the book that made me fall in love again! Fall in love with reading, fall in love with “book-heroes” (Edward stole my heart), and fall in love with books altogether. So this is the star of today’s show, and since I read Twilight in paperback format years ago, I didn’t even have this one in ebook. *gasp* Now it’s mine!!!! Oh yes. I one-clicked it!! :D


I LOVE roommate books (especially when they hate each other) but I think this one has a touch of love triangle in it!!!

“I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more. “

Oh oh. :D

And here are some more fantastic Valentine’s Day surprises for us!

…she’s ready to start again.Until she sees him.Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.
And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.
Their love just might be the life and the death of them.
“Happy Valentine’s Day, readers! I’m running a giveaway today for my 2 most “romantic” stories…”
A Valentine’s Day gift to my readers, ONE DAY, a Valentine Novella (19k words) is a silly, sexy, fun read and is now LIVE and exclusive to Wattpad!

  • Debra Anastasia just put up her upcoming release The Revenger on PRE-ORDER!! It’s coming out in just a few days… I’ve been hearing awesome stuff about it (Tijan LOVED it) and OMG WHAT. A. BLURB!

“The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him.

Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.

The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.
I’m Savvy Raine.
I used to be a wife.
I used to be a mother.
Now I am the Revenger.”

AWWWW I’m impatiently waiting for RoomHate and the new Penny Reid book sounds so good too. Why do I have to wait?! So not good at waiting. I feel like the girl in Willy Wonka- “but I want it NOW daddy!! *stomps foot and crosses arms*

Maryse February 14, 2016 at 10:40 AM

LOL!! ME too… between “The Lie” and Roomhate, I’m gonna be twitchy for which one to start first…

bev February 14, 2016 at 1:14 PM

Careful Cheryl. She was a bad egg. :-P

Maryse February 14, 2016 at 1:32 PM


Cheryl February 14, 2016 at 1:35 PM

Ha ha Bev. Yeh I think I would be a “good” egg. Just impatient.

I love Gene Wilder in that movie.

Amy February 14, 2016 at 6:13 PM

Hey, you know in the new one with Johnny Depp they check her to see if she’s a bad “nut”…pretty fitting around here. *snicker*

Roomhate and The Revenger…MINE! And I am all over A Love So Tragic…”Tragic. This word sums up my relationship with Nicolas: devastating, painful, depressing.” She screwed up and lost him but still loves him, yet she is married to someone else. YEAH!!! Hopefully it’s not one of those where the blurb makes my heart clench but the actual book is just meh. :?

Maryse The Twilight series is also what got me started reading again after years. I had just quit my job and wanted to see what all of the hoopla was about so I picked up a paperback of New Moon (2). I swear I have never in my life read and reread a series so much. It really opened up the path to PNR/Urban Fantasy and Indie romance. Thank you Stephanie Meyer.

Finished Ricochet and loved it! Perfect timing for Roomhate! Whatever else I thought I was going to read next has disappeared from my mind. All I can think about is Roomhate! Starting it today!

Cheryl February 15, 2016 at 10:02 AM

Several things have to do today, but then finishing Jockblocked- started it yesterday while impatiently waiting for RoomHate. It’s really good and I’m enjoying the slow-burn relationship; she doesn’t date athletes and turns him down several times and he’s usually a player and not at all interested in dating. Told in both their amusing POV’S. Then starting RoomHate! :)

Jean February 15, 2016 at 10:14 AM

Jockblocked sounds good Cheryl! We can read Roomhate together! Anyone else reading it with us? Maryse?

Maryse February 16, 2016 at 12:50 PM

Teri… I thank my lucky stars every day that Twilight exists. :D
