Bye-Bye 2012!

Oh maaaan. I know I have promised to write these rambler posts more often, and I have not done so. Maybe because there is not much I have wanted to say. Well, I think New Year's Eve is a perfect one for a rambler, don't you think?
I have seen this past days that a lot of bloggers and authors write posts about  their achievements this past year, and what they hoped to achieve in the next, so I thought to put a theme rambler of my own.
My past year has not been that eventful. My family has had some personal losses which has had an enourmous impact I would say, on every one of us in a different way. But I guess that is part of life. You just have too keep on going. No matter how hard it gets, not matter that you sometimes just want to give up, you just have to keep going. Sometimes, that is only that will save your sanity.
After this, all I have wanted was to go somewhere and enjoy good music. Music is often my saviour, let me tell you that. So, I have borrowed money from my fat…

Ask Her at Christmas (GR link) by Christi Barth

My Thoughts
Having read only one other HelenKay Dimon book, I have enjoyed reading We'll Be Home for Christmas for sure. The story begins in least possible way, but I guess this is what made the story so interesting. There is a lot of passion, quirky talk. The novella is heart-warming with a sense of a smal…

Book Review: Nauti Temptress by Lora Leigh

ebook Published November 6th 2012 by Berkley Trade 

Book Description (from Goodreads):
The first in an all new spinoff series of the New York Times bestselling Nauti Boys series, now featuring the Nauti Girls.

The Mackay cousins—Natches, Rowdy, and Dawg—would do anything for family, so when former DHS agent Timothy Cranston drops off four sisters that Dawg never knew he had, there is no question: The cousins will protect and care for the girls, and their mother, because they’re family.

Five years later, Eve Mackay, the eldest sister, has graduated from college and settled in to life as a Mackay in Pulaski County, Kentucky. She works hard as a cocktail waitress and helps out at the bed-and-breakfast that Dawg bought for her mother. If she keeps herself busy enough, maybe she’ll be able to stay away from the man she promised Dawg she wouldn’t date, the man who has awakened her most ravenous fantasies…

He’s Brogan Campbell, a biker rumored to be a traitor and a thie…

Published December 11th 2012 by Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (first published December 1st 2012) 

Book Description (from Goodreads):
She’s a little bit country, and he’s…not.

Arizona businessman and long-lost McKay love child Gavin Daniels has been awarded sole custody of his teenage daughter Sierra for one year. In order to steer Sierra back on track after a brush with the law, he pulls up stakes and heads to Wyoming, looking for support from his ranching family...even if he isn’t sure where they fit in the McKay dynamic. He’s prepared for every contingency with the move: the less-than-enthusiastic response from his daughter, learning to run his corporation remotely, but he’s thrown for a loop when his new housemate, Rielle, is a whole lot sexier, funnier and sassier than he remembered.

Rielle Wetzler has finally overcome the stigma of having hippie parents and being a young single mother. In the two years since she so…
