Another Onyx Teaser!

He looked me straight on. “You are a terrible liar. You do want this. Just as badly as I do.”             My mouth opened, but no words came out.             “You want this as badly as you want to go to ALA this winter.”             Now my jaw was on the floor. “You don’t even know what ALA is!”             “American Library Association midwinter event,” he said, grinning proudly. “Saw you obsessing over it on your blog before you got sick. I’m pretty sure you said you’d give up your firstborn child to go.”             Yeah, I kind of did say that.             Daemon eyes flashed. “Anyway, back to the whole you wanting me part.”             I shook my head, dumbfounded.             “You do want me.”             Taking a deep breath, I struggled with my temper… and my amusement. “You are way too confident.”             “I’m confident enough to wager a bet.”             “You can’t be serious.”             He grinned. “I bet that by New Year’s Day, you will have admitted that you’re madly, deeply, and irrevocably—”             “Wow.  Want to throw another adverb […]

Book Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz!

Deadly Little Lies: Touch Book 2 By Laurie Faria Stolarz Hardcover/Paperback/e-book 288 pages Book Description from Amazon: Last fall, sixteen-year-old Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious new boy at school who turned out to have a very mysterious gift–pyschometry, the ability to sense the future through touch.  But just as Camelia and Ben’s romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months studying everything she can about psychometry, and experiencing her own strange brushes with premonition. Camelia wonders if Ben’s abilities have somehow rubbed off on her. Can the power of psychometry be transferred? Even once Ben returns to school, Camelia can’t get close enough to share her secret with him. Despite the romantic tension between them, Ben remains aloof, avoiding contact. Then when an unexpected kiss leads to a frightening argument, Camelia makes the painful decision to let Ben go and move on.  Adam, the hot new guy at work, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn’t.  Adam is easygoing, and seems to really care about her. But when Camelia and Adam […]

When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her.

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read! It’s a great way to meet new blogger friends! This week’s question: Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across? I guess I’m kind of stuck in the middle.  I have a hard name to pronounce (for other people at least) that sometimes I wish my name was a little bit more common like Stephanie or Jessica.  But I guess I’ve gotten used to it now.  By the way I guess the easiest way to pronounce my name is Nah-ray-duh…it’s still not right though. I like unique names but at the same time I don’t like when they are too far out there.  Such as Patch from the Hush, Hush series.  Patch is one of my FAVORITE male characters but I just can’t get over his name, it’s a little bit too weird for me.  […]
