Monday's Muse

Monday, January 17

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!

I can't believe it's Monday ALREADY!  But I guess that is a good thing because that means we get to have a new Muse..woo hoo!  

I know our Muse this week has been around the block a few times, but I never get tired of him and I do have a good reason for selecting him this week.  Over the weekend I read the ARC I was sent for Marie Force's upcoming release Everyone Loves a Hero...and that's the problem and LOVED it so much!  Really.  It will have the honor of receiving my first 5 star review for 2011 (more to come in the official review within the next week or so).  

It was the first book that I had read by the author and once I was done I wasn't ready to let it go.  Lucky for me, squee, I knew I had one of her books in my TBR!  Yes, you guessed it I pulled it off the TBR shelf and devoured Line of Scrimmage in one day.  She's become a favorite of mine in one weekend.  I know I'm going to go through withdrawal because I have so many other books that I need to review for February that I won't have time to pick up any of the others until March or so...but I guess that gives me something to look forward to.  I just wish I had time to go back and re-read Everyone Loves a Hero again...sigh.  It was full of romance, and love, a hero to die for, and a heroine that I wanted to be...which brings me back to why I choose our Muse this week, and that's because our hero in Marie's novel is a pilot (former military, now commercial)...hence the Muse :)

So, not only did I read two great books this weekend, but I also eliminated one book from my TBR *smile*.  I'm very happy about that!

This is what's going to be going on at Seductive Musings this week:
  • I'll have several giveaway winners to announce one day this week, not really sure which day...I guess whenever I can fit it in
  • Tuesday I will have a new giveaway for Carolyn Jewel's newest paranormal romance My Immortal Assassin
  • Then on Friday, author Delaney Diamond's will be my guest with her story The Arrangement
  • Sunday I'll be introducing two new guest reviewers to Seductive Musings
  • Finally, I have a new Tempting Trailer in Beverley Kendall's newest historical romance A Taste of Desire
Somewhere in there I NEED to post several reviews. You might also be interested in Monica Burns's "Pleasure Me with Romance" blog event that begins this week.  She's going to have a TON of guest authors with daily giveaways and a grand prize.  I know I'm going to make a stop over there every day if I can find the time.  I've posted more details about her event on the "Contests & Giveaways" tab at the top of the blog if you are interested in learning more.  Other than that I think that's about all I have for you.

p.s. when working on some things for the blog this weekend I noticed that it was loading MUCH slower than usual. Have you had this problem or is it just me?

I'm a big fan of Marie's and I'm totally looking forward to Everybody Loves a Hero. I just got Fatal Justice and I'm planning to read it next weekend. She also has two self-published ebooks out (True North, and The Fall) that are a great bargain at $2.99 each.

I finished "Everyone Loves a Hero" this weekend, too. I love Cole but not so much Olivia. He's not just a hero but a saint for putting up with her low self-esteem problem. Still, the ending was great and I love the descriptions of Sausalito and San Francisco.

I'm waffling about "Fatal Affair" though. Maybe I'll wait until I'm in the mood for a rom suspense.

I have Fatal Justice and will be reading it some time this week. This Muse is gorgeous . Just so sexy. :)

Forgot to add that it wasn't just you. I tried following the Dreaming blog hop but everything was loading so slowly on AL the different blogs I just quit.

No matter if the Muse is a rehash. Still beautiful....

I will have to look for Ms. Force's books. She is new to me. But I do so like pilots. *sigh*

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)
