Monday's Muse

Monday, October 25

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

Let's talk dimples this Monday.  I am a complete and utter sucker for dimples....the one on cheeks....on the face :)  Though I am also a fan of dimples on the other cheeks as well *grin*.  What can I say I'm an avid admirer of the male form. I was watching a TV program over the weekend and one of the actors had absolute killer dimples.  He played the part of the bounty hunter, and I sooo couldn't really see him in that role because when he smiled, which he did a lot (not that I'm complaining) he didn't seem ruthless enough to be that kind of man.  Anyways, he was the inspiration for the theme for this week's Muse.  Surprisngly I couldn't find a Muse in my files that had dimples...on the face, so I had to settle for dimples above the other cheeks....I hope you don't mind ;)

After my company left I closed the door and enjoyed some "me" time, and decided I would read Styx's Storm by Lora Leigh.  I've been toying with the idea of not reading the Breeds series any more, especially after my disappointment in Jonas's story.  But somehow I just can't seem to give it up, I'm addicted.  I keep hoping that each new story will hold the intensity, uniqueness, and yes the sexiness that had me hooked after reading Tempting the Beast, the first book published by Ellora's Cave.  When I first read the books it was so different from what I had been reading and I loved her Alpha heroes.  Her heroes are still Alpha, but the series isn't really progressing for me.  At this point the heroes seem almost interchangeable for me.  At least with Styx's Storm the hero, Styx had a Scottish brogue, but I have to admit that even as much as I love that, in this book it just didn't seem to fit.  I think Styx's Storm is exactly what you might have come to expect from Lora Leigh's Breed series, and therein lies the problem for me.  They have become the same book with slight differences and I am saddened by my feelings towards the new novels in the series, but I just can seem to give them up just yet.  Is this the case of a series going on past it's expiration date, is it just me?  If you've read the series, especially the newest books I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Here's what you can look forward to at Seductive Musings this week:
  • Tuesday author Cherise Sinclair will be my guest to celebrate her newest novella, Master of the Abyss. I've become completely addicted to her BDSM romances, and can't wait to get my hands on this newest one.
  • Thursday author Gena Showalter will be here.  Her paranormal romances are very popular, so I can't wait to find out more about Ecstasy in Darkness 
  • Friday author Angela Johnson will be my guest with her new medieval romance Vow of Deception.  She's a new to me author, so I'm excited to learn more about her and her novels.
  • In between that, especially before the end of the month, I have several reviews to post.  Due to the amount that I have to get done they may not be as in depth as I usually have time for, so I'll probably keep them brief and to the point, but I think what I will do is open them up to questions at the end . So if there is something that you want more info on, or more details about you can put them in a comments and I'll respond to your inquiries in the comments.
  • I have a new Tempting Trailer for Dee Tenorio's newest Samhain Publishing release, Shaken.
  • I also added a new item to the left sidebar to show the progress of my Swagbucks Kindle case you're interested....or not :)

That's all the news from me, what's new with you?

I think your choice of dimples is just fine...I've seen a coupla similar cheeks but it's been awhile, unfortunately..*S*
Other than working A LOT & being behind on my reading & reviews not much here. I'd be happy to actually be off on one of my days off. Maybe I could get caught up...I hate being behind.
I've actually gotten rid of a few series lately because of the lack of growth. I never got into the Breeds though. I don't really like the genetic manipulation. I do have some friends who read them. 1 has complained of the same thing. She also got rid of the Bound series and the Naughti's.. I still have both.
Have a great wk!

Oh my. A dimple; so enticing.

I'm a Lora Leigh fan, but not of her breeds. Somehow, I could never connect with those. But now, her Navy SEALS and Elite OPS. Oh yeah!

Looking forward to another great week.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
