trick or treat

yesterday i read my first ever holiday ir story. the holiday of course was my personal favorite - halloween!

in the bw/wm "Lonely No More" by Selena Illyria the hero is a sorta dead famous writer who was cursed by his witch ex-gf to remain a ghost until he found true love. the heroine, who is also a writer (the hero is actually the one who inspired her to write when she was younger), moves into the house that he haunts and things take off from there. needless to say there is an immediate attraction between the two characters and the paranormal sex is just as hot and steamy as regular sex! it also wasn't as awkward to read as i thought it would be. so two thumbs up to Illyria for pullin' that off! and for those of you wondering how a relationship between a corporeal person and a ghost could ever work, no worries - for this story has a HEA!

so make it an erotic halloween and stop by liquid silver to pick up "Lonely No More". although, it is a relatively short read, it's definitely one that i recommend.

safety first!

it's no secret how i feel about books written by more than one author - leery to say the least. i'm one of the biggest skeptics i know, so to trust that two people can make their writer's voice sound as one is a big leap for me. but occasionally, i make it. so, following my gut (and danielle's positive review), i decided to purchase "Safe" by Shara Azod and RaeLynn Blue. and i am so glad that i did!

although i'm in the middle of reading several fiction and non-fiction books at the moment, i just had to take a quick break to get my ir-read on and it definitely paid off. "Safe" was right up my ally with a black heroine who wasn't a "doormat" (to quote the book) but also wasn't an ex-ninja (too many tough-as-nails sistas in literature these days), and a white hero who carries a badge (way hot) and is borderline stalkerific (even hotter)!!!

the plot in a nutshell: scum-bag, wife-beating brother kicks the bucket → wife and totally awesome brother-in-law finally admit they love each other → tons of hot oral-sex and intercourse → even more f.b.i. agent type action → HEA → and possible spin off with the hero's partner and a witness.

note: the book is available @ lulu ...and two words: love it!
