Yeah! A new month and a new look for me!
I decided to do a bit of Spring cleaning and freshen things up a round here. Recently, I had the fabulous Croco go and do a few tweaks to the website to give it that extra pizzazz. I am almost finished with my latest novel, Mountain Shadows (working title) and I decided to add a bit more flavor to the bolg.
What can you expect?

Loved the second installment of the Humanotica series. It was nice to follow Entrues and see where his path led. Haevyn was a new character and a strong woman with more of a role in this novel than Silver in the first novel. I loved the sexy scenes and fantastic world building. Darcy Abriel has created another wonderful book in which I was totally immersed.
Duty and honor demand the ultimate sacrifice.
Humanotica, Book 2
Everyone has their poison. For Haevyn Briena, it’s her inability to … Read More »

A lot of people ask me how I find the time to write, and an extension of that is the other question: why do I write? I never really know what to say. Yes, I have a full time job, a husband and an active little boy that keep me busy—busy enough that my days are already very full. And yes, sometimes the last thing I want to do after a long day in front of the computer at the day job is to sit down with my laptop and write, especially when the characters or the plot or the … Read More »
Aztec Gold by Caridad Piñeiro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Aztec Gold is a wonderful read filled with suspense, action and steamy love scenes.
It is not your conventional paranormal romance and that was what made this book entertaining. It is more of a woman’s journey to find herself, her lost love and to discover an ancient past that threatens her future.
Caridad Pineiro did an excellent job of keeping the reader engaged and emotionally tied up in knots. I loved the setting and the ancient Aztec lore and mythology. Aztec Gold is a highly recommended read. Can’t wait … Read More »
