I’ve heard of Elizabeth Lowell and I’ve seen many of her novels when visiting Barnes and Nobles but I’ve never had the chance to read any of her novels until I was given this hardcover novel of her most recent release. Perfect Touch is a heart-racing tale in which a former soldier turned rancher and a beautiful designer race to stop a vicious killer—a battle for survival that threatens to explode in an intense and irresistible passion. The novel begins with the heroine who is an art dealer and owner of her own design studio, Perfect Touch. Sara Medina travels the world to find the ideal artwork for her clients and has a sophisticated comfortable life in San Francisco is light years away from the poverty of her family’s dairy farm. Sara will do whatever it takes to keep her business strong and as a dedicated urban career woman focused on her work, she doesn’t have time or energy for a family or distracting romantic entanglements.

The Shadows by J.R. Ward

Title: The Shadows
Author: J.R. Ward
Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group
Publication Date: March 31, 2014
Edition: Hardcover
ISBN-10: 0451417070
ISBN-13: 978-0451417077
Pages: 576
Price: $1725
Buy at AmazonBarnes & Noble

I’m such a big fan of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and so far there have 13 books published including the current release named The Shadows. We previously met the Shadow named Trez “Latimer” in previous books but he doesn’t really exist though it’s not just because his identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. His parents sold him to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, but Trez escaped the Territory. He has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years – all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on…except for his brother, iAm. It has been iAm’s sole goal for most his life to always keep his brother from self-destructing – and he knows he’s failed but it’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around…but by then it’s too late. The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating. Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others – or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything because staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice…that will change both of their lives forever.

In the book See Bride Run! By Charlotte Hughes you meet Atlanta’s Iron and Steel billionaire heiress Annie Hartford. She has no desire to marry a man she does not love, which is where the runaway bride part comes in. Annie’s very controlling father has been calling the shots her entire life but this time he has pushed her too far that she hijacks the family limo, only to have it break down in small town Pinckney, Georgia. Then Annie meets small town lawyer and restaurant owner Sam Ballard who has been unlucky in love as well with his own runaway bride. So the last thing he expects is Annie coming into town in a short waitress uniform and breaking every dish in his Dixieland Café since she only graduated high school and then finishing school. Still, he can’t very well fire her because she has won the hearts of everyone in town and he starts to fall in love with her but he doesn’t know if she will stay or go running back to her rich father.

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Poster

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Poster

It was more than year ago that we had heard rumors that there would be a Fifty Shades of Grey movie coming out in August of 2014 but the movie was pushed back until Valentine’s Day 2015 while they got all the actors together with a script that would make it the movie all of its fans are expecting. Well that day has finally come and it was time to finally see how the actors ended up portraying our beloved Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. I went to the 8:55PM show at College Point Multiplex Cinemas on Tuesday, February 17th (this theater has movie tickets at $7.50 for all ages on Tuesdays only) with my aunt, her husband, my other aunt, my cousin and her husband and three other family members. Since it was a workday after a 3 day weekend I was all excited and working was a distraction that I wanted done with fast.

New Romance Author Interview Podcasts with Phoebe Jordan on BlogTalkRadio

 

Today I have an RT BOOKlovers Convention special show for you because I will be chatting with romance author C. H. Admirand who will be talking about her upcoming novels. And she may even give us a sneak peek into some of her future books as well as any of her other novels that she may have in the works right now and any other projects. She will be telling us about her writing experience and what she has in the works writing wise.

C.H. was born in Aiken, South Carolina, but her parents moved back to northern New Jersey where she grew up, which if you’ve met her would explain a lot. She’s always had her nose in a book, has traveled the world over, and even tested the time-space continuum, thanks to the awesome power of the written word. One of her writing quirks is that she loves to include bits and pieces of her ancestors and ancestry in all of her books. Her family centers her and keeps her sane, which is why she enjoys adding elements of family, hearth, and home in all of her romances.

With 8 short stories and 15 novels to her credit, this award-winning, multi-published author’s books are available in paperback, hardcover, trade paperback, magazine, e-book, and audio book. You can find out more about her by either going to her Website, Blog, Facebook Author Page or Twitter.

She scored fairly high in the verbal portion. She was introduced to the wonderful world of romance a decade later by her best friend at an anime convention in Seattle.

Phoebe Jordan

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
