The heart remembers. When Aidan Bishop staggers out of the woods, naked and suffering from amnesia, he needs to relearn who he is and where he fits in the world. His boss, nearly five-hundred-year-old dragon Nassim, head of a successful tech company, hurries to claim his wayward assistant and guide him back into the life he disappeared from. As they get to know each other again, Aidan wonders if their relationship went deeper than employer and employee. But Nassim isn’t telling, and Aidan has a secret of his own… even if he doesn’t know it yet. _________________________________________________________________________________ Teaser He pulled the computer onto his lap, lifted the lid, and pressed the power key. Wonder of wonders, it had no password. “Bad Past-Aidan,” he muttered. “But thank you.” Getting into his mail was no problem. As he waited for it to load, he couldn’t help the wriggle of excitement. Maybe there’d be an email from the friend he met on Monday aft

Music & Manga Monday

This meme is hosted by Always Me Since it's now October, we can jump into epic creepy music! So I hope you'll enjoy these amazing yet dark songs. My favorite kind of music personally.  When a girl at Hinata Sorazono’s school is attacked by what seems to be a bloodsucking vampire, everyone is on edge and wonders who’s next. Hinata refuses to believe that vampires even exist, but then she meets her new neighbor, Junya Tokinaga, the author of an incredibly popular vampire romance novel. Dressed in a kimono with an old-world air about him, Junya has a taste of Hinata’s blood and tells her it’s sweet... Hinata can’t help but be drawn to Junya, but could it be that he’s actually a vampire—and worse yet, the culprit behind the attacks?! My Thoughts 3 out of 5 Pink Sticky Stars The art is stunning and what caught my eye at the library. But then I read that it had vampires! Huge bonus! That being said, nothing much happened. Some murders are going on an

Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn... _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ My Thoughts 4 out of 5 Pink Sticky Stars I don't usually like friends-to-lovers but this one is one of the few that I thought was cute!

Back from the dead with no memory of who she is or what has happened to her, the Falconer now possesses even greater otherworldly powers and a ruthless instinct to kill—and the one piece of knowledge that can change everything. Find Kiaran. Two fae monarchs, Aithinne and Kadamach, stand on the brink of war, and according to an ancient curse, one must die at the hand of the other or all the worlds will perish.

Aileana’s only hope lies in the legendary Book of Remembrance, a book of spells so powerful that it can break the fae curse and even turn back time. But the book has been lost for centuries, and many are looking for it, including its creato

Spooky time! So I thought orange would be a good choice. Let's see what orange cover I love and which I don't.  Least Favorite  I mean... it's got a bug on it. I don't like bugs. Plus it's just very boring. A bright orange that kind of hurts my eyes with an ant on the cover. Not very intriguing.  Favorite  I just love the covers for the Throne of Glass series. Even though this is my least favorite in the series (that I've read) the cover is s

The writing is great. Flows perfectly, just enough detail to paint a picture but not enough to slow down this short little romance. The characters are great, loved the banter! So all in all this book is great. Now, let's get t

Music Monday - Rock Songs I'm Loving

This meme is hosted over at Always Me .  I don't share a lot of rock songs really and that's weird because it's my favorite genre. So today let's change that! I'm going to share two rock songs that I've been loving lately.  I was so sad when I heard that Adam had left Three Days Grace because it was his voice that kept me loving the band, so I was beyond excited when I found out he was in a new band. This single is my favorite from Saint Asonia so far! Skillet is hit and miss for me. Some of their stuff I love while some just is too heavy handed. This song I do love.

I just love the icy tone to her skin and all the stunning purple! I hated when they redid these covers. They weren't even half as awesome afterward.
