1) Didn't like how the leopard seal tried to eat all the penguins.

Why did you want to read this?
1) Because I love cows and because I didn't have it and wanted it.

Would you recommend it to read it?

Excerpt from The Legend of Harper and the Reversing Worlds
Whispers from the Pages

            Harper heard whispers coming from her parent’s room and they seemed to be calling her name. Her curiosity urged her to open the trunk one more time. She lifted the trunk’s top, as she glanced over her shoulder to be sure no one was watching her rummage through her mother’s things. Usually she wouldn’t be so secretive about such a move, but there was something in her mother’s hope chest that pulled her in. Her mother didn’t allow her to go near the hope chest. Her mother always told her there were too many old valuable family treasures buried in its depths. Harper, the eager girl she was, couldn’t help but to take a peak time and time again. There were so many fascinating things in the secret chest, especially a book, a mysterious and mystical book that stood out to her. She pulled the old tattered book out, tucked it under her shirt, and quickly shut the cover. She hastily moved through the house before anyone had a chance to follow her to her room. She opened her bedroom door and locked it behind her. She pulled herself up onto the bed, and placed the book in front of her. She admired the calligraphy style print on the old leather binding; it held an ancient wizardry look around the worn edges. The clasp held a lock, but strangely enough, the lock wasn’t like other locks. The clasp wrapped around a small stone wedged into the leather and steel. The red colored stone held strong into the leather and metal clasp. Harper tugged at the stone in hopes to ease the pressure. She continued trying to force the lock open. She tossed the book aside on her bed in frustration. 
            She sat on her bed in disgust and looked down on the mysterious hardcover. The title stood out to her, but she couldn't pronounce the words. “ Shamans-Hatha Ka- AFI Fayeed Jayeed.” She spoke out loud not knowing what the meaning was, or how to pronounce the long-winded title. She shook her head in defeat as she hid the book under her bed. She could hear footsteps as they moved down the hall, and quickly unlocked her door and opened her math book, as though she were studying. Her mother walked in, and was impressed by her ambition to study on a Friday night.                        
            “Sweetie, do you have a test?” Her mother asked.
            “Yah, next Friday,” she told her, but she disliked the thought of lying to her mother.
            “Well, your dad needs help in the boat tomorrow. Do you think you would like to go out in the boat with him?” Her mother looked at her with a hopeful look.
            “Yeah, I will go,” Harper smiled at her.
            “Well you better get some rest sweetie.” Her mother kissed her on the forehead and closed the door behind her.
            She pulled out the book from beneath her bed once again. She opened the drawer of her nightstand and pulled out a letter opener. She tried to pry open the clasp on the book in a desperate act, to find out what could possibly be inside. She used all her strength and put pressure on the clasp. She wedged the stone back and forth. Suddenly the stone flew across the room. She smiled in delight of finally gaining ownership of the stone. She picked it up and examined it from side-to-side and front to back. The stone began to shine. Streams of light radiated through her room as when dropped the stone and then she watched it fade back to its normal color. “What just happened?” She asked herself out loud.
            She looked down at the book she realized that the stone hadn't released the clasp. She put the book back in her nightstand drawer and figured she would try open the clasp later. She curled up in her bed knowing the next day would bring her lots of hard work. She closed her eyes and wondered what could possibly be inside the old book.            
            “Why would her mother have such a treasure?” She asked herself as she drifted off to sleep. She saw a glow through her closed eyelids. Beams of light danced around her room in radiant colors from the crack in her nightstand drawer. She quickly put her feet on the floor and hesitated to pull the drawer open.  

About the Author :

J.T. Brown is a paranormal fantasy/science fiction author, who lives in Downeast, Maine. J.T. has always been drawn to the ocean, maybe because she spent most of her days on her father’s lobster boat as a child, or maybe it’s the phenomenon that shakes her cage daily. The Reversing Falls, which sits on the coast of Maine has always sang its mysteries across the twisting currents of the ocean, but for J.T. that song has always been a tale, waiting to bleed its story across the pages of “The Reversing World’s Trilogy.”

Waiting on Wednesday: Macrieve by Kresley Cole

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 



Uilleam MacRieve believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood. But when a brutal torture revives those ancient agonies and destroys his Lykae instinct, the proud Scot craves the oblivion of death. Until he finds her—a young human so full of spirit and courage that she pulls him back from the brink.


Seized for the auction block, Chloe Todd is forced to enter a terrifying new world of monsters and lore as a bound slave. When offered up to creatures of the dark, she fears she won’t last the night. Until she’s claimed by him—a tormented immortal with heartbreaking eyes, whose touch sets her blood on fire.


With enemies circling, MacRieve spirits Chloe away to the isolated Highland keep of his youth. But once he takes her to his bed, his sensual mate becomes something more than human, evoking his savage past and testing his sanity. On the cusp of the full moon, can he conquer his worst nightmare to save Chloe . . . from himself?

Coming out on July 2, 2013


  1. Because I read the first several books of the series (I’m trying to catch up…)
  2. When I read the description, it sounded a bit “Beauty and the Beast”, and that is my favorite fairytale…
  3. This sounds just plain delicious, honestly.  I want to know what she turns into, and so much more.
  4. I love this cover.  It looks better than a penny bodice ripper, but it still has that sexy/sultry look that screams romance novel.  

So what are you waiting for?

Happy Reading!

Bewitching Book Tour: I’ll Be Damned by Casey Keen

I’ll Be Damned
Anna Wolfe Series Book One
Casey Keen

Genre: Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Romance

ISBN: 978-1483974774

Number of pages: 400
Word Count: 114,426

Cover Artist: Jenna DeVries, Graphic Designer

Amazon     BN      Kobo    Sony    Smashwords

Book Description:

A sister kidnapped.

An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner.

A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is.

The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her.

Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions.

As the owner of the coffee shop Deja Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld.

Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is - a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.


It happens practically every night. My pleasant dreams take on a life of their own, morphing into terrifying nightmares. They are the tsunamis of the dream ocean, spinning me in their churning tides before thrusting me awake, whereupon I find myself drenched in a pool of sweat, and gasping for air. Abandoning my worry isn’t an option since a demonic element is the driving force behind them. It sounds crazy, but even as a child, a special darkness visited me in my dreams. Is it a warning? Or a threat? Your guess is as good as mine.
They always began the exact same way - I'm being hurled into a pitch-black hole of nothingness. I open my sleepy eyes, allowing them time to adjust. Isolation surrounds me, reminding me how unprepared I am for this place. A dim, orange light cuts through the dark abyss like a blade. I squint, realizing it’s much further than it appears. I attempt to move my feet, but they stubbornly refuse. I try a second time, and manage to overcome the terror that is binding them. One step becomes two and I find myself walking at a cautious pace, listening for the faintest sound. I haven’t the slightest idea where I am, which makes me suspicious of everything. My nose wrinkles as I walk through a large pocket of air that reeks with an overpowering odor of burnt hair. I swing and wave my hands, hoping to break up the stench, but to no avail. What could be the source of such a rank smell? I’m not sure I want to know the answer. I quickly push the thought away. Curiosity can be dangerous when it comes between reality and panic.
I tread delicately, hoping no one hears me. I don’t think I'm alone, and I find some comfort in the darkness. Whatever is with me is out of my sight, and therefore, out of my mind. I never thought I would find a cliché so helpful to me until now. I wrap my thoughts around it, mustering up the courage to carry on. The orange light grows, compelling me to pick up my pace. I glance at my surroundings, unsure of what I might find. The curved, dank walls and concrete blocks beneath my feet are bare, but fortunately, no revolting creatures dangle from the ceiling or slither past my feet, although I am thinking of them! Where the hell am I? Dreams have a funny way of camouflaging life’s problems, but this is ridiculous!
A glint of light from the ashen wall catches my eye. I step closer to it, noticing how the curved cobbles gently mold my feet to their shapes. Small, rectangular stones that suggest their age goes well beyond the medieval era are arrayed in front of me. A dense tackiness catches the small granules of little dust motes that are reflected by the light here. Some kind of liquid begins to seep from one of the cracks in the stones, and I lower my head to inspect it. The crimson liquid slides sluggishly, like a snail, towards the ground. Leaning closer, I realize I’m staring at blood, and I gasp, jumping backwards. My heart thuds loudly in my chest as my adrenaline speeds through my veins like a racecar. My eyes skip around, noticing thousands of little red capillaries materializing all over the wall. An overwhelming paranoia that the tunnel will cave in torments my mind. I turn and dash towards the light, fueled by my distress. My lungs scream for air as I push myself further and faster than ever.
The orange light surrounds a large opening. Skidding to a stop, I barely avoid falling over the ledge at the cave’s entrance. I stare out at a fiery, scarlet landscape that appears infinite, and sends me a menacing warning. I lean forward when a wall of intense heat slugs me in the face, forcing me backwards a few inches. The air is dense, and it’s hard to catch my breath. Sweat beads on my brow, evaporating before I can wipe it away. I scan the ravaged scenery, watching pillars of fire erupt from the ground before disappearing into the onyx sky, rimmed in red. A chain of mountains with jagged cliffs, emerge straight up from the bloodshot dirt. Floating objects I don’t wish to know about, travel in an orbit, weaving in and out through the rough terrain. I’m in a completely different world. My terror lingers, refusing to go away. A raging river of lava slices through the valley, determined to leave its own mark in the middle of this inferno. I stroll down a steep trail that leads directly to the unusual river. I stop long before reaching its banks, and gradually inch my way closer. My eyes drift over to the whirling mass of disturbing beauty. Deep shades of red and orange mesh with each other, creating a horrid kaleidoscope of angry colors. Flashes of distorted images of my family and friends bob in and out of the blazing lava. I watch in horror as the greedy river of fire consumes them without remorse. Despite my attempts to reach in, my hand snaps back after feeling the agonizing heat. I step backwards, staring in numb bewilderment. I know I’m dreaming, but it doesn’t lessen my anxiety. My back slams into something solid and unyielding. Long, crooked fingers wrap around the tops of my tiny shoulders like spiders. Suffering and emptiness engulf me. My heart pounds like a hammer as my limbs melt into rubber. The hands squeeze me hard, sending excruciating pain throughout my entire back. The snapping of my shoulders, cracking like glass, shatters the unbearable stillness.

About the Author:

Audio Book: The Care & Feeding of Stray Vampires by Molly Harper


Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running all their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship—and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

Cal - who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way - offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place until he figures out who wants him permanently dead. Even though he’s imperious, unfriendly and doesn't seem to understand the difference between "employee" and "servant," Iris agrees, and finds herself breaking more and more of her own rules to help him - particularly those concerning nudity. 

Turns out what her quiet little life needed was some intrigue & romance—in the form of her very own stray vampire.


The Care & Feeding of Stray Vampires by Molly Harper
5 out of 5

I LOVED this book!  I mean, it was the perfect blend of snark, sarcasm, romance and mystery.  This story had me laughing – HARD.  I love how Ms. Harper creates some believable, yet hilarious situations for the characters to get into and to get out of.  I think that she easily makes characters that you can relate to in one way or another.

Iris is awesome!  I love her cussing substitutes, I love her sugar addiction, and I love her love of plants.  Her determination to provide for her sister and make her way in the world, definitely make her a character you can cheer on.  Plus, at the end of the book, she proves what a badass she actually is!

Cal, an ancient vampire, is a very formal, very stiff, but very sexy vampire.  I love how he wants to take care of Iris and Gigi.  I also enjoy watching him go from Mr. Formal to a relaxed Cal who can laugh and have fun.  I also love how he slowly becomes part of the family.  It wasn’t planned or agreed upon, but it just happens.

Gigi was hilarious!  Her teenage view of everything from sex to food was both funny and refreshing.  Plus – her full name had me groaning “What parent does that to a kid?!?!?!?!”

Again, we got to know Ophelia better… and she scares me to death.  The cold, calculating, vicious vampire all wrapped up into the body of a teenage girl sounds way too dangerous.  Plus, her forms of punishment make me glad I’m not a vampire under her jurisdiction. 

Oh, the villain of the story actually surprised me to no end.  I mean, I thought it was one person, and it was someone completely different!  I love that!

Overall, I found this book to be absolutely wonderful!  I highly recommend it, and I’m looking forward to reading more by Ms. Harper.

Happy Reading!
