Monday's Muse: Dark Angel

Monday, March 28

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!

This last week I began reading Pamela Clare's I-Team series novels (currently Unlawful Contact) for the very first time, in preparation for her new release in May (Breaking Point), and the thing that strikes me most is how much I love her Alpha heroes...and the stories.  Especially the stories because I think they are the perfect blend of romance and suspense (approx 50/50).  I'm also loving the whole investigative reporter heroine thing going on in the series, because the women are smart and work hard to make the world a better article at a time.

But  since it's Monday, let's get back to that whole yummy Alpha hero thing Clare does so well.  I just finished reading Tessa and Julien's story in Hard Evidence, and when the heroine asks him about his heritage he says that he's half Italian, at which point she asks him which half,  and he cheekily replies "from the waist down ".  Yes siree, our hero Julien is an Italian Stallion :)  Tessa is one lucky lady!  Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.  Anyways, our Muse this week is how I envision Julien Darcangelo aka 'Dark Angel' .  I could be holed up with him in protective custody for a very, very long time and not get bored :) How about you?

As you can tell, I'm really really enjoying this series and can't believe I haven't read them before.  My big big thanks to the Musings readers who suggested I should give her books a try.  I now have a new to me author to add to my auto buy/auto read list :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  author Jill Shalvis will be my guest for her newest Lucky Harbor novel, The Sweetest Thing and some special extras :)
  • Wednesday:  Review for Lorelei James' Saddled and Spurred by new Seductive Reviewer "DD" (see below), and one or two reviews by yours truly :)
  • Thursday:  Maybe a new Thursday's Thoughts, but more than likely a review
  • Friday:  Debut author Lecia Cornwall will be here to celebrate the release of her new historical romance Secrets of a Proper Countess
Also of interest:
  • As I mentioned above there is a new Seductive Reviewer in town!  She will be writing under the reviewer name "DD" and I think you are going to enjoy reading her reviews just as much as I do.  I think they are witty and insightful at the same time...basically they are so much fun to read that I can't wait to share them with you.  Her first review will appear on the blog on Wednesday with her review for Saddled and Spurred.  Here's a little bit about her:
Hello!! I am DD. I am only child, not 30 nor am I 40, am deathly afraid of wrinkles, and spend way too much money on Moisturizer. I love cats, but I am married, so I cannot be called a cat lady. I will not disclose the amount of time I would spend sleeping if I could. I do have a real job, and unfortunately it really hinders the time I can spend on reading and naps. I also roll my eyes frequently and frown on a professional work environment.

5 words to describe yourself:  Moody, Bossy, Emotional, Nosey, and Sweet ♥ And a hermit. And wordy.

  • And if you didn't already know, and missed my post on Sunday, Operation Auction for Fatin on Ebay is up and ready for your bids.
    • I have a widget in the left sidebar that will show you what the current bids for some of the available items are, and you can view all of the items by visiting the Operation Auction Ebay Store.
    • The auction will take place with new items added every three days or so.  Bid now and Bid often (except for the items I would like to win...then you can save your money for something else equally tempting)
    • The banner at the top of the blog is now directed to the Ebay store, however if you'd like to visit the Operation Auction blog for more information, or to donate click here.
    • Seductive Musings (me) donated a few items for the auction, including a few collectible books.  Since the shipping is free for the items, money earned from the Amazon purchases that you, my lovely Musings readers, have made will be used to ship the items to the winning inadvertently you have played a part in the effort to support Fatin and her family during this terrible time and for that I want to thank you all for your generosity when making purchases at Amazon using links found on the blog and at the Seductive Musings Amazon store.  From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!
  • I have a new Tempting Trailer this week. It is for Rhyannon Byrd's new paranormal romance that releases this week, Rush of Darkness (I enjoyed this one).
Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Jenelle Denison, Larissa Ione, Gaelen Foley, Lisa Marie Rice, Jill Shalvis, Erica Ridley, Katharine Ashe, Olivia Cunning, and last, but certainly not least, Lecia Cornwall.  There's a lot of great new releases this week!  Here are just a few of the others that might tempt you:

Have a great Monday my friends!

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)
