seriously romantic: safe haven by red phoenix

safe haven isn't your usual romance. we meet charlie at 18 about to enter the army against his father's wishes in the summer of 1976. disowned from his biological family, he finds a new family in the army. we see him grow into a soldier. we see him lose his first love. we see him after he's lost everything, even an eye.

when he runs into one of his men, someone he helped through a rough time, he is offered a chance to explore a new lifestyle. he gets training as a dominant and is welcomed by his friend to participate at his school for submissives. and charlie finds that maybe he doesn't need to be so alone. that there is a community of people who need things the way he does. that there might be a girl who needs what he can offer her.

cleopatra cox is actually that girl. doesn't matter if charlie, or captain, is thirty-six years older. doesn't matter his scars. doesn't matter than on paper there should be nothing that would ever make them seem a plausible match. she's been abused. she's been vulnerable. but being with charlie soothes her soul and she wants him. she wants what he gives her. how he treats her like his precious pet.

but he believes he's too old. too battleworn. that whatever is there between them is wrong. and how they will cross that bridge, i don't know. because the book totally leaves you hanging.

**safe haven will publish on june 12, 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of candy kane pr in exchange for my honest review. keep reading for more info on the book.

Love has no limits…

At eighteen, I suffered a heartbreaking loss and began exploring my submissive side to escape the pain with kinky pleasure.

A chance meeting sets me on an exciting new path as a student of the Submissive Training Center. There I find Captain, a distinguished Dom I’ve totally fallen for—my safe haven.

But I have a problem.

Captain won’t collar me.


People know me as Captain.

I’ve accepted my title as a war hero, but I’m still overwhelmed by guilt…until I meet her. Candy is like no other submissive I’ve ever met. In her eyes, I see the man I used to be.

She is everything I want, but I can never be what her young heart needs.

Therefore, I must protect her—at all costs.

Love has no limits.

Candy has changed my entire outlook on life. I’ve spent years living in my head, tormented by those I could not save.

It served no purpose—even then, I knew it.

However, it wasn’t until Candy burst into my life that I could see a new path and was able to focus on my life. I am not blind to the insurmountable barrier of time that stands between us. A force that cannot be altered. We are two people born out of sync, but Candy only sees us and I am beginning to, as well.

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…

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.
