be still, my heart!

knock knock
who's there?
great book
great book, who?
great book called "Mistress to the Beast", that's who!

...wooo still, my heart! *fans self* earlier today i read Eve Vaughn's "Mistress to the Beast" and boy was it good! so good that i actually e-mailed the author simply to sing her praises - something i absolutely never do, but should probably get in the habit of. i mean if we, lovers of this genre, don't support each other, who will...

where do i begin? with a brief summary? here's the publishing website's - Samhain Publishing, Ltd. - description of the book:

Can this beauty tame the beast?

Her father’s shop is more than just a family business. It’s the place they lovingly call home. When a powerful property development company stoops to barely legal tactics to force them to sell, Lila’s outrage spurs her straight to the source to fight the injustice.

A serious accident left Hunter Jamison’s body scarred. A bitter split from his latest lover has left the former playboy without faith in the female sex. Yet, confronted with Lila’s fiery beauty, he finds himself offering her a deal: If she’ll be his mistress for three months, he’ll allow her father to keep the shop.

A simple agreement? Hardly. It’s a battle of wills that flares into much more than either of them bargained for—a consuming passion that could heal Hunter’s soul-deep scars…or inflict new ones.
sooo, have i peaked your interest? hope so, because this book is worth the purchase!

last night i accidentally stumbled upon a list i created a while back containing books that were highly recommended on various bwwm forums and i decided to finally purchase one. was so not disappointed! i mean, the fact that on the website the publisher warns: this title contains blackmail, vehicular sex, angry sex, light bondage and graphic language would make anyone want to read it simply out of curiosity.

anyway, i found this list at the perfect time because i've recently encountered a string of disappointing interracial romance novels and it was starting to grate on me, to say the least. i can't tell you all how refreshing it was to read a story that was so engaging, entertaining, and well written that i wanted to print out copies of it and mail it to all the authors of sucky books so that they can see what real writing is all about!

plus, no grammatical errors - now if that doesn't sell you then i don't know what will! *snap snap snap*
