seriously romantic: the ruthless gentleman by louise bay

hayden wolf needs to get away from it all, he needs to figure out who is leaking company secrets to his competitor and shut it down. his company and his reputation as a businessman depends on it. when he charters a yacht to hole away from the world while he completes the biggest deal of his career he doesn't expect to meet avery walker.

she is the stewardess, he is the ruthless gentleman. her job is to make sure every single one of hayden's wants and needs are met. platonically speaking, of course. there's no fraternization between crew and guests, and avery has never been tempted. her career is too important, it's her redemption. she needs to help provide for her brother's long-term care after a swimming accident left him paralyzed. she needs to help her dad out with the bills.

but in taormina everything changes. it becomes clear that staying away from hayden is impossible. he owns her. and she owns him too. it's not smooth sailing. there are trust issues and betrayal and logistical issues related to being from different continents. but avery and hayden have *it*--that magical thing that makes it so clear that it doesn't matter what happens, what they share is built to last.

**the ruthless gentleman will publish on may 8,. 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of louise bay.

simply catching up on all things general hospital

hmmm, it's been months since i've blogged about gh. partly this is due to the fact that i fell behind while i was traveling. partly because all the outrage lapsed into disinterest when i realized i couldn't bring myself to care anymore and everything that was happening was just so trite and boring.

some days i still feel that way. and there are still whole storylines that i either hate or just fast forward through. but there are some good things too. in no particular order, here are my thoughts on the goings-on in port charles:

1. soras [and why re-casting roles works on soaps even if you do miss the original actors]:
the new, older versions of sonny's kids are turning out to be quite enjoyable. [although hilariously, cameron whom i believe is older than molly is now younger. and because cameron is so cute, i'm kind of hoping they won't fix that. we also haven't seen spencer in ages, so he may be approaching 50.] in any case, at this point we've only seen…

genre debate: urban fantasy versus epic fantasy: team epic gets their say

Team Epic: Why I Love Epic Fantasy!
Since it's my blog, I'll go first: Epic fantasies take you on quests that take you beyond the limits of what is real. The rules can be different, they are different, and everything just matters more. It's not just one life at stake, it's lives, it's a whole world, a whole way of being. Epic fantasies force you to use your imagination and take you on an adventure to places you never thought possible, but as different as everything feels, there are still things that are always real, no matter how you write it.

Erica Cameron - Island of Exiles (The Ryogan Chronicles, #1): Why do I love epic fantasy? It's a blank slate. We can erase all of our preconceived notions of society and law and even science, throwing all of that over the side of a cliff. Epic fantasy lets us push humanity well past the breaking point with ever more impossible landscapes a…

Releasing on August 8, 2017, read on for more information about The Forbidden, including an excerpt and giveaway!


What do you do when you can't control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn't go there? Not even in your head. 

Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she's already in too deep. And Jack isn't only dangerous. He is forbidden.
