Published July 17th 2012 by Toadhouse Books

Aine (pronounced "Aw-nee") believes herself to be a regular teenager in 1930s Alabama, but when a blue-eyed monster named Biblos attacks, she discovers that the reclusive woman raising her isn't really her grandmother and that she's been living inside a book for the past five years. With her blind brother, Spenser, she flees the pages of the novel she's called home, one terrifying step ahead of Biblos' black magic. Her only chance at survival lies in beating him to the three objects that he desires more than life.

As she undertakes her strange and dangerous odyssey, Aine must choose between a family she doesn't remember and her growing attraction to a mysterious young man named Gilgamesh. Only through treacherous adventures into The Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities, and the epic Indian saga The Ramayana will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.

A Story of Sexual Obsession

Lily:
I should never have agreed to it.

A woman will do a lot to keep her husband happy. But when my husband sells me to the highest bidder—billionaire, former navy SEAL, pride of Boston's business scene—I agree, not to keep him happy, but because it gives me the chance to finally escape. Escape my marriage, escape my debts, escape my life…

Josh Lane demands a steep price: my pride and my morals. But the truth is, I've never felt anything like what I feel for him. He brings color into my gray world. And his insistence that I submit to his commands—his depraved, filthy, amazing commands—only feeds my craving to be taken by him. Again. And again.

I should never have agreed to it, but I'm so glad I did.

30 Song Challenge: Song You Listen to When Sad

This, like most challenges like it, is technically suppose to be a 30 day challenge but I've decided to make it weekly because; sadly, I'll only be blogging for 9 more weeks (not counting the final blogoversary week).



Song 9: Song You Listen To When Sad


Which happens often.
Or maybe I'm just thinking about last year.

And I'm getting to a point where I feel I need to be blunt about it.

I recently had a situation where I said something couldn't be done. I didn't say I couldn't do it, I wasn't asking for help, and even when I got the unwanted help it still wasn't possible.

Then, of course, frustrated with the uselessness of that help I went back and of course was able to figure it out myself.


This is basically me and relationships. It's not that I can't find anyone, I'm just not trying very hard. I'm not asking for help. I don't appreciate being asked if I have a preference in nationalities. I don't want to hear that I'm being picky when I say I have no interest in the younger guy they're telling me about, I don't want to meet random guys that just broke up with their girlfriends and I don't want to hear how my life is going to change with the guy someone picked out for me. (Someone once said that about a vegetarian changing my eating habits. No.)
