Toil and Trouble Review and Giveaway

Title: Toil and Trouble
Author: H.P. Mallory
Release Date: Dec 3, 2010
Publisher: Indie
Source: Author ( Thanks H.P.)

Blurb:
The Underworld in civil war.

The cause? A witch who can reanimate the dead.

A sexy as sin vampire determined to claim her.

An infuriatingly handsome warlock torn between duty and love.

Who says blonds have more fun?


After defending herself against fairy magic, Jolie Wilkins wakes to find her world turned upside down—the creatures of the Underworld on the precipice of war.
The Underworld is polarized in a battle of witch against witch, creature against creature, led by the villainous Bella, who would be Queen. 
While Jolie has one goal in mind, to stake the vampire, Ryder, who nearly killed her, she also must choose between the affections of her warlock employer, Rand, and the mysteriously sexy vampire, Sinjin.
And as if that weren’t enough to ruin a girl’s day, everything Jolie knows will be turned inside out when she’s thrust into the shock of a lifetime.
Toil and Trouble is the second book in the Jolie Wilkins series, the follow up to Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble
.

Jolie is preparing... preparing for a war that has been brought upon the creatures of the underworld because of her. Jolie is a witch that can reanimate the dead. Reanimating the dead is a very desirable trait when your legions are dying. Bella is a vampire that is set on claiming Jolie as her own, and make her reanimate dead creatures to make herself more powerful... so powerful that she will be the queen of the underworld if she succeeds.

Not only does Jolie have to deal with the guilt that she has put all the creatures of the Underworld at risk because of what she can do. Jolie also has some romantic issues, Sinjin is a sexy vampire that wants Jolie to be his and his alone. He will stop at nothing to protect her, even if that means risking his reputation. Rand is a warlock who Jolie has fallen in love with, but lately he seems to be pushing her away. She can't get any time alone with him. So as Sinjin is drawing Jolie closer, Rand is pushing her away and Jolie can't decide who she wants to be with. 

Jolie has a lot to think about. First things first though, she must prepare for war. Jolie has victory in sight but has reasons of her own for wanting to fight in the battle. Just when things seem to have taken a horrible turn, Jolie gets thrust into the past... will she make it back in time to save the Underworld? or will she alter things in the future and change her own fate?

Toil and Trouble is an all around awesome read. It has romance, violence, action and adventure. All the characters are well written and composed. You get to know each character on a personal level, which is something I really enjoyed. By feeling that I knew the character it was easier to see myself along Jolie and her friends, experiencing everything right along with them. 

The book kept me turning the page from page one to the very last page, I just couldn't get enough! I believe that I have read this book so many times that I could recite it by heart. At the current moment I have read it around 75 times I think. But its just that good. 

I can't help but feel for the characters and route for Jolie to figure things out in her love life. How can you not? Jolie isn't the damsel in distress type, which was a wonderful change of pace. She doesn't need saving... she can save herself! I love that! She is a kick ass first, take names later type of girl, with a strong attitude, confusion about her future, and the confidence to see it all through. Toil and Trouble is a curl up on the couch and read book, trust me you won't want to put this one down. In a phrase Toil and Trouble is .... KICK ASS!

EdenFantasys Sex Toy Review: Over 18 WARNING!

18 and over warning!

Evolved Novelties
Fleur De Lis Seduction Review

     I received my first toy from EdenFantasys to review. It is the Fleur De Lis Seduction made by Evolved Novelties. First off I wanted to share with all of you how descreet the packaging is when it arrives. It came in a priority mail cardboard box, with nothing on it indicating that I had just received a sex toy in the mail. The return address on the package is Web Merchants, so there was no chance anyone would have known that inside the box was a sex toy, it appeared as if you just had ordered something offline.


This is the Fleur De Lis Seduction made by Evolved Novelties, it comes in a etched domed case, with a charm attached to the top. There is some very brief details about the toy written on the bottom of the case, that is all the instruction that the toy comes with.

Removing this from the case can be a little tricky. You unscrew the bottom piece from the dome, then unscrew the toy from the bottom piece, then unscrew the bottom of the toy and remove the bottle cap type piece of plastic that attached it to the bottom piece. 

The Seduction is 7 1/2 inches in length and 4 3/4 inches in circumference. It is made of a velvety silicone, that is soft to the touch. I did notice that it does have a habit of picking up dust due to the texture of the toy. I personally will be keeping this in the case that it came it to avoid getting dust stuck to it. Which the case is an excellent thing to use as storage seeing it is made of a hard plastic and is made to house the toy. Or if you wished to display it, you could merely leave the domed lid off. 

The Fleur De Lis Seduction does have limited flexibility but does move. About half way up the shaft is when it is able to move due where the batteries are placed. The vibrations on this toy are extremely intense. I am new to the whole sex toy seen and this was just a little bit too intense for me. On low it was fine but on high I couldn't use it. The vibrations did cause my fingers to feel kind of fuzzy after a while, but not too badly. You can feel the vibration through the entire toy, it isn't concentrated on any certain point, more than any other. 

This toy runs off of two AAA batteries. All you have to do is remove the bottom of the toy by unscrewing it and there is a plastic sheath in there that you remove and insert the batteries into the plastic sheath and put it back into the toy and secure the cover and you are in business. There is a waterproof button on the bottom, which you press in to start and press to change the speed or to turn off. The Seduction has 3 speeds ranging from low to high. You can barely hear this toy when its on, when we first got this I was sitting on one end of our couch and my husband on the other end, when I turned it on, he wasn't able to hear it where he was sitting which was less than 10 feet away. Even on high he was unable to hear the vibration. So for being a very powerful toy it is a very quiet and discreet toy.

The Fleur De Lis can be used for a number of things from simulation, to insertion. I personally thought this was just a bit to powerful for me, so it will be used strictly for stimulation, which I have no doubt it will be great at doing.

This toy is also very easy to clean! All you need is your favorite toy cleaner or some mild soap, apply it to the toy, roll it between your hands under warm running water and wooo la  good as new!

You can pick up this you and many more toys, lingerie, candles and much much more over at EdenFantasys

EdenFantasys has turned into one of my favorite places to shop for all my bedroom needs. Its more professional than any site I have seen before. They are discreet when shipping, and the staff is very friendly. They also have a great place called EdenCafe where you can go and meet other people, talk and enter to win some sex toys.

Thank You to Jenn from EdenFantasys for sending this out to me, and helping me get set up to review items.

Cover Alert!


Author: Josephine Angelini
Release Date: June 1, 2011

Blurb:
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention.

Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?


 WOW! all I could think of when I read this description was that it sounded absolutely amazing! I honestly can't wait until I can get a copy of this... June 1st being the latest possible date for me to obtain it. I have to have this! It has been a very long time since I have honestly jonesed for a book... This is that book!

The cover is absolutely amazing as well! Its whimsical and romantic with the woman standing on a cliff by the ocean, with her dress and hair blowing in the breeze towards the water and the stormy sky in the background is a wonderful finish. The color scheme is beautiful with the purples and blues. I don't think that I would ever tire of looking at this cover.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone has a fantastic holiday with their family today! I know that I will be gaining about 20 pounds with mine and spending all next year trying to lose it.... I think that's why new years is after the holidays.. so you can make a gluten of yourself and then make the new years resolution to lose it all in the new year. Anyways have a great holiday... eat to much, watch some football... most importantly enjoy your family time :)

The funny thing? We have wild turkeys like that one in the picture in our backyard! No we didn't shoot him for dinner! ... We bought ours from the outdoor field we like to call the grocery store, my sister however did decide to kill a turkey this year... for that Thanksgiving meal, I think I will not be eating any turkey, I have a thing about wild meat... No thank you!

Waiting On Wednesday



Title: Toil And Trouble
Author: H.P. Mallory
Release Date: Jan 1, 2011

Blurb: (Created by Mary @ Sparkling Reviews... There isn't a description officially out yet for this book!)

H.P. Mallory is a fantastic Indie author! She has two other books out, To Kill A Warlock and Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble. Toil and Trouble is the sequel to Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble. It is about a witch named Jolie who is in love with a warlock named Rand. Unfortunately their romance has pissed off another very powerful witch. Bella has never had anything taken away from her before... until now that is. Rand defeated her during a battle and with him took the only thing that will make her queen of all the creatures in the otherworld.... Jolie. Now Bella is waging war against Rand, the creatures of the otherworld have been split, half fighting for Rand and the other have with Bella, the outcome of the war will either mean peace and freedom or captivity and torture. Will Jolie and Rand have what it takes to defeat Bella? or will something come in the way?

I am lucky enough that I get to Alpha read this book. But I am really looking forward to the release. It is an amazing book so far and I can't wait to finish it. For me there is nothing like H.P. Mallory to deliver an amazing Paranormal Romance. There is action at every turn and romance comes in no short supply. This is one book that is sure to please.

That's what I am waiting for this Wednesday ... Make sure to leave me a link to yours in the comments.
