Monday's Muse: The Pamela Clare Edition

Monday, April 4

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!
Last week I featured a Muse that looked like what I felt the hero, Julian Darcangelo, from Pamela Clare's Hard Evidence looked like (he's also what I picture Joe Morelli to look like from the Plum series by Janet Evanovich). this week I have not one, but two Muses inspired by the last  few I-Team series books by the same author that I read last week, Unlawful Contact and Naked Edge.  I LOVED THEM SO MUCH! I can't even express in words how much I enjoyed this Romantic Suspense series.  I can't wait to read Breaking Point, which comes out in a few weeks (May 3, 2011).

I was going to feature either Marc Hunter (hero from Unlawful Contact), or Gabe Rossiter (hero from Naked Edge) but I couldn't pick just one.  I loved them both for very different reasons...actually I've loved all of the heroes AND the heroines from this series.  Basically, I just love me some Pamela Clare!  Hence this week's special edition of Monday's Muse, dedicated to the I-Team series that she so brilliantly wrote.  On the left we have what I picture Marc Hunter to look like.  If you are not familiar with  his  story he is a convicted murderer who escapes from prison and kidnaps the woman who has filled his dreams and his fantasies during his incarceration. He is willing to sacrifice everything for the people he loves...loved him!  On the right we have what I picture Gabe Rossiter to look like.  He is a park ranger who is an extreme climbing enthusiast, easy on the eyes, is basically a man-whore, but he has a big hidden heart (that's been broken and betrayed) and is one of the most heroic heroes I've read about in a long time.   How can you choose between that?  The can't!

I finished Naked Edge (Gabe & Kat's story) over the weekend and now I'm having complete RS withdrawal. I just got the latest book in Maya Banks' KGI series, but I just couldn't bring myself to start it because I didn't want to compare the two Romantic Suspense books, so I had to go back to reading a Historical Romance...and then I remembered I have a few Pamela Clare historicals sitting in the TBR :)  Dare I read them even though I have other books that I need, and should read first?  I'll tell you, it was a serious temptation, and I contemplated it for several minutes before my conscience intruded ;)  I may try to sneak them in before the end of the month as part of my TBR Challenge, but then again I just received Saddled and Spurred and Sweet Possession in the mail last many books, so little time :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  I'll have a new giveaway for Larissa Ione's first book in her new Lords of Deliverance paranormal romance series, Eternal Rider
  • Wednesday:  I'll have winners from a few giveaways, as well as the 2nd chance winner from the Operation Auction Seductive Musings Ad item
  • Thursday:  I'll have my March Month in Review post with a recap of the books I read last month
  • Friday:  I'm hoping to be able to post the Jill Shalvis interview, but if not then I will have a few reviews for you.
Also of interest:
  • I mentioned earlier that this was the Pamela Clare edition...didn't I?  This week Pamela begins her month long countdown celebration with lots of her own Muses (including Jed Hill), I-Team Trivia, Games, Interviews, Prizes and Giveaways!  I plan to make her blog part of my daily morning ritual.
  • And since we're celebrating the I-Team series, what should be more fitting than featuring the Breaking Point book trailer as our Tempting Trailer of the week!
Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings authors Maya Banks, Lauren Dane, Lora Leigh and Erin McCarthy.  Here are just a few of the many books that released this week to tempt you:

I love both, but Marc is my favorite. I can't wait for Breaking Point to be released and I might switch to Team Zach after I read it.

I'm a big fan of Pamela Clare's I-Team books! I can't believe Breaking Point is coming out soon. Totally love all her heroes; they're just so yummy :) On another note, I recommend you to read Saddled and Spurred. I really liked the story and I think it's a good one to start after Naked Edge. I was in a book funk but was really glad I read Saddled and Spurred.

I heart Marc too! In fact I think he might be my fav hero, even though Hard Evidence might be my fav of the series so far, but like you said...I need to reserve final judgment until after I've read Breaking Point :)

Hey J3nny!
On one hand I was lucky that I didn't start reading the I-Team series until recently because I could read them back to back and completely binge on them :) And now the wait, while seems like it will be forever, is actually quite short.

I really really wanted to read Saddled and Spurred, especially since I had to wait several weeks to get the copy I had ordered because of the release date of Maya Banks' Sweet Release. I would have if I had not committed to so many books to read and review for March.

Thanks so much for the recommend and if you have any others I'd love to hear about them!

Really Like both Muses! Like Pamela's Work as well and looking forward to her new release.

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)
