Nascar Racing

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

I love watching my favorite driver race in different races. I watch Nascar racing every chance I get at home on my satellite TV. I ordered satellite tv from http://www.directstartv.com/directv_current_offer.html. The Nascar Sprint Cup Race for the Chase has been a great series of races. There are a couple races left and every driver is trying to do the best they can. There is not much of a difference in points between some of the drivers right now. The top ten are going to the final race. I know my favorite driver, Kevin Harvick, will be in the final race. He is first place in the points standings right now. So there is really no doubt that he will compete in the final race. I think that he is the greatest driver in Nascar. He is about 34 years old and has been racing professionally since he was 20. He has the driving experience and a good personality. He has been my all time favorite driver for a long time. I can't wait to see the next race. He has won many races and many awards in his career. I am hoping he will win the final race in this Sprint Cup series. I love watching the races, they are so exciting and full of suspense. This next race is going to be a good one.

Review: One Fine Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy ~ ARC

He's got a way with horses...and with women...

His heart is as wild as the horses he trained...

Nate Shawcross is perfectly content to spend his days training wild horses. So when a beautiful greenhorn unexpectedly shows up for a seminar from the famous "Horse Whisperer" of Wyoming, all Nate wants to do is send her packing...

The last thing she expects is a lesson in romance...

Graduate student Charlie Banks came to the ranch to learn about horse communication, but when she meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy, she starts to fantasize about another connection entirely...

Nate needs to stay focused if he's going to save his ranch from foreclosure, but he can't help being distracted by the brainy and breathtakingly sexy Charlie. Could it be that after all this time Nate has finally found the one woman who can tame his wild heart?
description taken from here.

One Fine Cowboy is the second book from Kennedy, the first being Cowboy Trouble.  Now, I have not read the Kennedy's first book, so I cannot say anything about her last book, or how it plays into her new book.  However, I can tell you that her story was excepetional!  I love cowboys anyways, so her guys just touched me and made me 'aww'.  I completely fell in love with her strong and silent cowboy.  Her story line tossed in twists and turns that me turn the page as fast as I could and I laughed through a good part of the book. 

Joanne Kennedy is a great writer, and I will be racing to the book store ASAP to get her other book. 

You can check out Joanne Kennedy's website here.

Review: Sin Undone by Larissa Ione

HER TOUCH IS DEADLYI love the Demonica series by Larissa Ione.  I have been a big fan of hers for a while now and was awaiting the release of this book when I saw Hatchette was handing out review copies.  Safe to say, I hopped aboard that train. : )

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.


Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.  description taken from here.

Let's start with the cover first.  While it's very nice, I think the last 4 covers in the series were way hotter.  I'm probably being biased though, because those guys that stared on those covers were ammmazing.  Still, the cover is not a big deal, so moving on..
I loved the characters.  Sin stayed herself through the whole book, which I thought was very important.  I mean, Sin is a hard ass.  She can't say, 'oh, that guy is so hot and sweet that I'm going to give up killing people now'.  It would have felt very fake and wrong, so I'm extreamly happy that Ione stayed true to her characters. 
Con was a great character as well.  I loved the two sides of him, the werewolf and the vampire, I thought it made him a nice contradtion. 
Also, I'm not going to mention what it was, but I loved the twist in the story. : )   The plot was well thought out and the ending was great to lead  into a new series.

Review: Shelly Laurenston ~ Pride Series

I love Shelly Laurenston's books.  It's that simple.  They are hot, sexy, and full of laughs.  That's why I'm not writing individual reviews, because they would be super long and I would talk about them all even though trying to stay at only one book.  So, I'm just going to say that I love them, why I love them, and then give you guys the names, and other info you might need to find these books and buy them if your interested.

The series I'm reading is the Pride series.  Here is the list of books and links to the author's site so you can read snippets of the books if you want to:

And, book 6 will be coming out in 2011!!

Now, I have not read The Beast In Him and The Mane Attraction because I do not yet have them.  But the other 3 I do own and have read. They are all so good.  The sex scenes are hot, the romance is there, the connections are there, the friendships are fantastic, plots are excellent and the humor is everywhere!  I just really love these books.

They are about shape shifters (lions, tigers, bears, oh my!)who live in New York, present day.  One family of wolves owns a string of restaurants and they cook all the time.  One polar bear/lion is a professional hockey player for a shifter only team.  And, some more lions own a hotel.  As you can tell, the shifters kind of have their own little world going for them and the humans (although they live with them) don't know about them.

Now, I know that are more expensive because they are trade paperbacks.  These books are normally around $14.  But, I got mine for around $3.50 at my local used book store.  If you don't have one in your area, look on amazon (it looks like a lot of hers you can purchase for around $5 and up used) and on eBay.  You can also check at the BookDepository.com which offers FREE SHIPPING worldwide on all of their books (there it looks like you would pay around $6 and up).

It looks like AbeBooks.com is the cheapest to get her books though.  (I've used them before and they are great.  You can sell your books [used and new] to them as well.)  

I know some of you have probably read either all or some of the series already, but to the ones who have not, I hope this gives you a list of some new reads and that you check the books out because they are so good.  They will always have a permanent spot on my favorite's shelf, that's for sure. : )

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!

Finding the Best Deals Online

This guest post from Lewis Beck

I use hughesnet to dial up to the internet and find the best deals no matter what I am shopping for. Whether I am looking for a new outfit or when I was looking for wireless internet providers by zip code, I always turn to the world wide web first. The internet has so many sources that can help you save money. Whenever I am looking to buy something new I look online first. I can find the stores that offer the item at the lowest price, order directly online, and even read reviews on which items are the best ones out there. My satelite internet Bryan TX has helped me save thousands of dollars on items big and small. I was able to find the best deals on my kitchen appliances and save over five hundred dollars by simply going to the store that offered the best price. The internet cuts out the time it takes to shop around and go from one store to the next. With a few clicks of the mouse I am able to find the best prices and buy the items I need at a price I can afford.
