Dream Author Panel

Have you ever imagined some of your favorite authors in a room together discussing their books or a certain genre? Recently I was inspired by Eventbrite's Conference Page to imagine my dream author panel and I couldn't be more thrilled to compose and share with you why I'd love for these authors to have a panel together!
I'd absolutely love for some of my favorite romance authors to discuss what makes great romance and also their opinions on subgenres. For this reason, I've paired the following authors together:

All three of these authors have written some of my absolute favorite romance, however in very different genres! Julia Quinn writes Regency Romance, Jennifer L. Armentrout writes YA, NA and Adult Romance and Karen Marie Moning wrote my all-time favorite Highlander Paranormal romance series! 
I think it'd be fun to see these authors exchange ideas and maybe even write a short-story together just for the panel! 
Do you have any authors you'd love to p…

by Megan Linski
"If you love fast-paced plots then you'll

What if your worst enemy is your true love?
Exiled from her coven and torn from the arms of her lover, werewolf prince Lisar, vampire princess Lysandra Romanova-Dracula is lost in the woods of Romania, searching for the elusive location of the mysterious den of wolves. After being separated from Lisar, Lysandra made a pact; find him, and his pack, or die trying.
But she doesn’t find the wolves. The wolves find her. After Lisar pleads for her life, the Alpha makes Lysandra a fragile bargain. If she becomes one of them, she will be allowed to live with her beloved Lisar in peace. Fail to do so, and her execution is imminent.
When shifters are found murdered within pack boundaries, shredded to pieces by a monster hiding in the shadows, Lysandra becomes a prime suspect. Caught in a dangerous game where one misstep could become fatal, Lysandra has to prove her innocence, and solve the mystery of who has betrayed the pack without becoming a victim herself.
Will Lysandra peer through the da…

Monthly Recap {March 2017}

Hello, everyone! I hope y'all had a lovely March! I can't believe it's already over! 
I've decided to modify my Monthly TBR Goals into a Monthly Recap. I'm a moody reader and my reading counts vary from month to month, sometimes quite drastically depending on my schedule. So without further ado here goes!
Books I read in March... I only managed to read two books in the month of March. Traveler took me nineteen days to trudge through!
Books I received for review...

Book News... Okay, here I go showing y'all how old I am, my teen years were chock full of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It had everything no other TV show had back then; paranormal elements, romance and ways to overcome challenges in life that no other show displayed at the time. 
Well, a few days ago it was announced that there will be NEW Buffy books! Kiersten White will write a spin-off series based on a brand new Slayer!
