Cover Reveal: Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 | PERMALINK

Romance, secrets and hockey come together in full force in Sawyer Bennett's upcoming novel Garrett, the second book in her Cold Fury Hockey series, which kicks off this October with Alex. And while Garrett doesn't come out until February, we have something rather delicious to tide you over — the cover! And let us tell you, it's a hot one. But don't let us spoil it for you, read on to see the reveal and to learn more about the book.

Let's start by seeing what this book is about:

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type — confident, sexy, smart ... his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian Spill on Co-Authoring

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 | PERMALINK

Writing a book by yourself can be rather lonely — but that all changes when you team up with a co-author to pen a story. Or, in Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian's case, an entire trilogy! To celebrate today's release of Ashes to Ashes, the third and final entry in their Burn for Burn series, Jenny and Siobhan discuss the ins and outs of their partnership, complete with GIFs! Take a look:

We have been reading each other’s work almost since day one of our friendship. We wrote together, we traded pages and gave each other notes, and maybe most importantly, we fell in love with each other’s stories. We were so in-sync that it made perfect sense to collaborate on a book together.

Outlander Recap: Episode 1.6 — "The Garrison Commander"

BY Regina Small, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

Last week: Claire traveled with the Castle Leoch crew to collect rent — and discovered that Dougal's trying to raise money for a Jacobite army to unseat England's current king. Hurray, treason!

We left off last week with British soldier Lieutenant Jeremy Foster asking Claire if Dougal is holding her against her will. Returning from the smash cut to black, we pick up immediately with Claire's answer: No, she's not a prisoner. She's a guest of Clan MacKenzie.

Foster still feels his superior would want to speak to Claire, so he requests she come with him. Dougal insists on going as well and, as they travel, Claire VOs that there's something comforting about riding with her own people; after all, she did serve in the British army for six years. I don't totally understand her affection for THIS British army, given the fallout of the brutal crucifixion we saw last week. But okay.

Claire notes Dougal's discomfort — though they're still in Scotland AND on MacKenzie land, the town they're heading into has a strong British army presence, so Dougal's definitely in enemy territory.

Once they arrive, Foster takes Claire and Dougal directly to his commander, a foppish gentleman seated at a long dining table with other soldiers. He bolts out of his chair to introduce himself to Claire, proclaiming it's been too long since he's seen a "lovely English rose." Then he kisses her hand, and wastes no time calling Scotland "blasted turf."

Witches of East End Recap 2.9 — "Smells Like King Spirit"

BY Elissa Petruzzi, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

Holy schnikey, witches! Quite an episode! What an ending! In hindsight, I should have known something was up because they sent Jenna Dewan-Tatum on a press tour this week, talking up the show. But I’ve been watching soaps for a long time, so I wasn’t so sure I believed the commercials about “the most shocking episode ever” and that I wouldn’t believe the last two minutes. But I was shocked and I couldn’t believe the last two minutes.


Just remember, we’re all in this together.

Ready? Onward!

Ingrid is ignoring Dash’s calls, and the warlock is not happy about it. He’s boozing and smashing stuff in the attic when he comes upon some old letters and journals, containing pictures of old Ingrid from the satanic cult days.

Okay, you guys, this is pretty squick worthy (worse than tentacle man, if you can believe it), so let’s try and get through this together. Freddy’s still carving up his blindfolded girlfriend, who’s oblivious thanks to the “numbing cream” he used. There’s blood all over the bed. It’s terrible. Freddy raises the knife up high … but he can’t do it.

Exclusive Cover Reveal: A Christmas Hope by Stacy Henrie

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

If you're someone who would listen to holiday music year-round if you could, today's reveal is for you! Stacy Henrie first enchanted us with July's Hope at Dawn, the first book in her inspirational historical romance series set during World War I, and today, we're revealing the cover for "A Christmas Hope", an upcoming novella in the same series that releases in December, right before the full-length sequel, Hope Rising. Let's take a look:

Drum roll, please!

...

...

Ta da!

Whatever lip color that is, we want it. Here's what Stacy had to say about the cover:

"I think the cover for 'A Christmas Hope' wonderfully captures the heroine with her poised and beautiful demeanor, as well as the feel of the time period. Christmas 1918 was especially poignant since the Great War had just ended the month before, and yet, there were so many people — soldiers and citizens alike — who were struggling in the aftermath of the war and needing to find hope again. A hope that just might be found in the anticipation and beauty of the holiday."
