seriously romantic: accidentally in love with the pilot by teri anne stanley

megan shuttlekrump, is the adopted daughter of a family of circus act performers. kind of like cousin marilyn in the munster family, megan is the straight character keeping everyone in line. accidentally in love with the pilot opens with a surprise party for megan's birthday, and ben rutledge is roped into delivering the cake. ben who is introverted and shy and overwhelmed by the intensity of her family, but he's intrigued by megan.

and a drunken night at the bar ends up with a quickie vegas wedding that neither of them remembers. and while they try to piece together what happened that night, the only other thing they know for sure is that the condom broke. deciding to stay married for the length of ben's military leave while they figure out where they got married and if they are pregnant seems to be the most logical step.

but soon playing house and being together feels so real. and both of them are afraid to admit that it's what they want. finding their words is no easy task, but the actions that speak louder are all right there. it's just that megan is too afraid to believe that ben loves her, just like she's afraid to admit that she worries that if she isn't needed by her family they don't love her anymore. there's a lot of deep-seated insecurity there, but megan isn't a doormat. she just can't stop herself from being useful to everyone. it's an expression of love for her, and when ben doesn't need her to be useful, it's both a relief but also incredibly scary. their love story is enjoyable and sweet.

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!

Synopsis

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.
