“I used to be a full time teacher (11-13 year olds) then I became a full time mother. During that time I also found my passion for writing. Over the last ten years I have been studying the craft and putting myself out there.

My first trilogy came out in November, 2011. It has been a wild ride swimming in this indie river and I have loved so much of it. I have learned so many amazing things and met so many great people. It has totally solidified the fact I want to be a writer for as long as I possibly can!

I now have five books published and am working on a new YA Fantasy trilogy for 2013. I am having so much fun with it and can't wait to share it with everybody.

I am from New Zealand, but am currently living in China with my husband and two sons. It has been a culture shock, but it's pretty cool living in such a different country.” ~ Melissa Pearl

Book Blast and Giveaway ~ Immortal Seduction by Jennifer Lynne

Gods of Love, Book 4
Release Date: August 27, 2013

Some seek love, some seek power. For Aphrodite, the two are permanently intertwined. And when the goddess of desire hungers for love, who among mortals could possibly resist her power?

Fire fighters Ashur, Kieran and Hugh are damaged men. A tragedy that took the life of their colleague has left them scarred, both physically and emotionally. Love and power are nothing to them but empty words. Hoping to reignite their mother’s passion for life and love, the erotes bring these mortal men to Aphrodite’s attention.

But with the blackness inside Ash, Kier and Hugh becoming ever deeper, will it take more than the power of a goddess to save them? And if she loses that battle, how will she rediscover the path to healing for her own emotionally damaged heart?

Warning: this erotic romance novella contains ménage (MFM and MFMM) sexual scenes between the goddess of desire and three hot fire fighters. The story is suitable for Adult readers only!


Rated Adults-only, 18+

A male body was behind him, the slick wet head of a cock prodding between his ass cheeks with a persistence that made him want to bend over and be fucked for the first time in his life. And then…oh, God! There were lips on his thigh. On his scar. Someone was raining tiny kisses all over the disgusting puckered flesh before dragging their moist tongue back and forth across his skin.

How could they face doing that?

His eyes flashed open. It was Hugh who had sucked him in deep, so deep that the top of his cock hit the back of his friend’s hot throat when his hips shuddered in an instinctive thrusting response. It felt so fucking good. He couldn’t believe he’d made such a big deal about not doing this in the past.

Hugh. He wanted to laugh, and cry at the same time. Who knew?

Breath laced with a familiar whiskey smell was hot and hard against his neck, identifying Kier behind him. His buddy was busy back there, stroking his body and caressing the crease where his butt cheek met his leg, teasing his ass in the most delightful way possible.

But his senses honed in on Aphrodite. She was kneeling in front of him, side by side with Hugh, and she was touching his scar. Celebrating the mutilated flesh on his leg with her lips, and tongue, and even her fingertips.

“Aphrodite,” he whispered. And that’s when the shaking began. Real shaking, as if he had a fever of some kind and his body was no longer his own. “I don’t want…I want…” He couldn’t get his tongue around the quaking words. Couldn’t get his brain around the thoughts. “I don’t know what I want.”

Tears squeezed out of the corners of his eyes and an ache formed deep in his ears and throat as he held in a sob. Jesus. I’m better than this. I’m stronger. But he just stood there, unresisting, tears falling silently as he let them all love him.

Cover Reveal ~ Two Roads by L.M. Augustine

TITLE: Two Roads
AUTHOR: L.M. Augustine

GENRE: Young Adult



SYNOPSIS: The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers. Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life. But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty. And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all…

Two Roads
is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are.
It contains some language and mild sexual content.


L.M. Augustine is a YA romance author who is obsessed with writing about dorky teenagers, love, and happy endings. He currently lives in New England, where he spends far too much time reading books and screaming at his computer, and he believes that the solution to the world’s problems can be found in chocolate cake.

Book Review: Stag Spooner - Wild Man from the Bush by Chris Maclean

Title: Stag Spooner - Wild Man from the Bush
Author: Chris Maclean
Release Date:
August 13th 2012
Craig Potton Publishing

Source: Received from the publisher via Booksellers NZ for the purpose of an honest review

Stag (Neville) Spooner (1917-1946) was a government deer culler in 1939 and 1940, initially in the Tararuas, and then on the South Island's West Coast. While his successful career as a culler was cut short by the Second World War, he did leave behind a remarkable legacy from this period, a painted diary of his experiences that he entitled Those Wild Men from the Bush. This diary, which forms the heart of this book, is a fascinating chronicle of the life of a professional hunter, who somewhat unusually, was also an artist. Stag Spooner went on to create another highly individual body of art during the war, a series of decorated envelopes that were sent back to his family and friends. In this book Chris Maclean brings to light Stag's singular body of artwork, while also telling the story of his adventurous life, which started in the Wairarapa where he developed his love of hunting, progressed into becoming a deer culler, and then saw active service during the Second World War in North Africa and Italy, as part of a Field Ambulance Unit. Soon after his return to New Zealand Stag's life tragically ended on a hunting trip, alone, in the Fiordland mountains. Stag Spooner is a unique book that finally recognises the life and world of a remarkable New Zealand hunter and artist.

My Thoughts

So this is definitely not my usual read, but when you're given the chance to read about a not-so-well-known but poignant person in your country's history, you take it!

Stag Spooner - Wild Man from the Bush is a treasure of a book. Not only does it beautifully display the artwork of Stag Spooner but it lovingly tells his tale.

I have spent hours pouring over the art in this book, and each time I take another look, I see something I hadn't noticed before. The 'tattooed envelopes' are my absolute favourite thing art-wise in this book, they are definitely the highlight for me.

Stag Spooner - Wild Man in the Bush is so much more than just the art. This book will not only keep lovers of art happy, but the family stories detailing deer hunting, everyday life of the hard working man, going bush and more, will keep the blokey reader happy also.

Definitely one of the best non-fiction reads I've had in a long while, Stag Spooner - Wild Man in the Bush deserves to be on your bookshelf.
A book for everyone, 5 Stars
