Grab this deal quick.

The original price for 'Dating The Devil' is $11.99. Get it today for only $1.99.


Lucy O’Neill is a plain-Jane New York PR assistant with a tiny apartment, a dead-end job, and a pair of annoyingly perfect roommates. Nothing exciting ever happens to her, until one night at a neighborhood pub . . .

Lewis Mephisto is tall, handsome, and hot. Very hot. He meets her gaze through the crowd, a wicked grin on his lips, an irresistible invitation in his eyes.

He’s Mr. Right Times Ten. Sophisticated, wealthy, sexy, and completely devoted to her, body and soul. So what’s her problem? Can’t she handle dating the Devil?

Lewis looks at me hard for a moment in the darkness, then nods. “So you’ve figured the whole thing out,” he says ruefully. “You’re—” “Yeah,” he says. “Say it,” I say in a trembling voice. “I want you to say it.” He reaches over and switches his bedside lamp on, and suddenly the room is flooded with warm light. Then he looks back at me and shrugs. “I’m Satan,” he says.

He looks so boyishly vulnerable, sitting there shirtless amidst the rumpled sheets, one sock on and one off, blinking sleep out of his blue eyes, that I want to laugh. Of course, I also want to cry. I can feel the tears welling up in the corners of my eyes, but I manage to keep my voice steady. “And you’ve been—all this time, you’ve been—trying to steal my soul?”

“Not steal it, exactly,” he says. “Just . . . lead you into temptation.”

Cane Hutchinson took one look at heiress Alexandra Duke and knew she'd be big trouble. He was an ex-Marine whose expertise as a bodyguard had him working with high-risk clients all over the world.

Babysitting a billionaire's princess was the last thing he wanted to be doing...

The last thing Alexandra wanted-or needed, was a bodyguard. But her father had worries for her safety after winning an important contract against an unscrupulous business rival.

Being stuck with Cane 24/7 was bad enough; now she had to contend with an uncontrollable attraction for her handsome and virile bodyguard who looked like he belonged on the cover of GQ magazine. She was used to keeping people at a distance because of the fortune her father represented-but for how long could she keep her rising feelings for Cane at bay?

4.19.13: President Obama Discussed The Developments In The Boston Attacks

4.19.13: Massive Manhunt In Watertown, Mass Leads To One Suspect Dead, Other Captured, In Hospital - 4.22.13: Update

A massive manhunt began Thursday in Boston and then Watertown that resulted in a shootout early Friday morning between police and the two suspects involved in the terrible Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and injured over 180 people.

The suspects turned out to be two brothers. The older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed. A photo of his dead body surfaced online. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured later in Watertown, in one of the most televised manhunts ever.

Folks were riveted to their televisions, iPads and smartphones for updated information. The showdown ended when the suspect was found in the backyard of a Watertown residence, hiding in a boat.

After thousands of police officers, FBI, etc, searched, the suspect was captured.

He is hospitalized in serious condition.

During the tense manhunt Friday, family members of the suspects began speaking out, including their Mother who claims her sons are innocent and Father, who stated if his second son was killed "hell would come upon the United States". He then claimed his sons were innocent.

[Side Note: Now I know the Father was full of emotion after being told a son was dead and another was on the run and both were alleged terrorists. But he had some damn nerve threatening our country after what his demon seeds did to innocent people. Allegedly.

An uncle spoke out, speaking with common sense. An aunt spoke from Canada and she was just... there are no words. Take a look at the following videos for additional details of the above mentioned.

Again sending prayers to the families that were affected by this cowardly and horrific act by these evil things.

Via NBC News: The younger suspect has been charged.
The hospitalized Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction – and the White House said he will be tried in a civilian court.

Dzokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing. “He will not be treated as an enemy combatant. We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

“Under U.S. law, United States citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. And it is important to remember that since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists.”

Tsarnaev, 19, a naturalized U.S. citizen of Chechen origin, made his initial court appearance at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition. He was advised of his rights and charged with one count of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in the U.S. and one count of malicious destruction of property with an explosive device. He was assigned three federal public defenders. The charges could carry the death penalty.

The suspect agreed to "voluntary detention," but declined to answer questions about bail, according to a court record. A probable cause hearing was set for May 30.

"Today's charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston and for our country," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. "We will hold those who are responsible for these heinous acts accountable to the fullest extent of the law." 
A criminal complaint laid out some of the evidence against Tsarnaev, who was arrested Friday after a daylong manhunt, and his brother, Tamerlan, who was killed during a firefight with police.

A black jacket and white hat, matching the ones worn by "Suspect No. 2" in surveillance video, were found in the younger brother's dorm room, along with green strands of fuse like those used in the marathon explosives that killed three and wounded more than 170.

The video also captured the suspect making a cellphone call seconds before the first bomb exploded on the east end of Boylston St. during last Monday's race, and his utter calm in the face of spreading panic, the complaint said.

The footage showed him hurrying away from his knapsack just 10 seconds before a blast erupted where he left it. Tsarnaev was brought to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the head, neck, leg and hand. He had been communicating with investigators in writing because he couldn't speak, federal officials told NBC News.

It's unclear what he told them. The FBI has not revealed a motive for the attack last Monday that killed three people -- one of whom, Krystle Campbell, was laid to rest in Medford on Monday. Investigators are still probing whether the brothers received assistance from others, officials said.

Happy Earth Day!

[Video] - Al Sharpton Speaks About John King's Botched CNN "Exclusive" Reporting!

[Video] - CNN / John King Gets Boston Marathon Bombing Arrest WRONG + John King Claimed The Suspect Was DARK SKINNED

CNN's "reporting" of the Boston Marathon bombing story yesterday, if you can call it that, was atrocious. Wolf Blitzer and John King were live in Boston reporting on the horrific bombing that happened earlier this week.

John King stated on air that a credible source relayed to him that a suspect had been arrested in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing. He even went further and stated that the suspect was a 'dark skinned' male. He wouldn't go into any additional details on the supposed description of the "suspect". Only that he was 'dark skin'.

He claimed the credible source told him additional information on the description of the suspect, yet he chose to not relay the information, because he wanted to be "sensitive" to how some folks might feel.

Really? What in the hell are they doing over at CNN? Over the course of the last sixteen months, CNN has begun to morph into a clone of FOX NEWS Network. The new head of the network Jeff Zucker, has made a plethora of eyebrow raising decisions that has included firing several POPULAR black journalists and analysts, while hiring a steady stream of conservative journalists.

Well after yesterday's amateur and inaccurate reporting, it left CNN/John King the laughingstock of news. Twitter went IN on John King and the network. Many folks spoke out about John King's one descriptive of the "arrested" suspect.

The FBI even had to release a statement to the media about reporting ACCURATE information. Now it's REALLY embarrassing when the FBI has to call out a major news network... CNN will never be looked at as a credible source of news again.

They proved yesterday that they didn't care about the facts, they only cared about getting an EXCLUSIVE, even if the EXCLUSIVE was dead ass wrong.

If you missed the inaccurate reporting yesterday, take a look now, it began with John King saying a suspect had been identified.

In conclusion, MSNBC/NBC did not run with the story about a suspect being arrested.... they waited for the facts.

Hats off to MSNBC/NBC for actually wanting to report real news, accurate news.... for being a CREDIBLE news network.

I know Chris Cuomo is wishing like hell he stayed at ABC and Anderson Cooper had to be pissed. Just saying.

[Chris Cuomo and Anderson Coopers are REAL journalists]

Box Office Wars: '42' Strikes A Home Run!!!!

'42' slid into first place at the box office. The Jackie Robinson film grossed an estimated $27,250,000 in ticket sales.

The movie was outstanding! If you haven't seen it... do so.

The fifth installment of the horror parody franchise SCARY MOVIE flopped badly. The film only managed to bring in an estimated $15,153,000 in box office receipts.

How bad did it bomb? Well SCARY MOVIE 4, which released in April 2006, pulled in $40,222,875 during it's weekend debut.

By far, the most successful SCARY MOVIE in the franchise was the original that released in 2000 and during it's run, had an intake of $157,019,771 in domestic ticket sales, on a $19 million budget.

The worldwide total box office numbers for the original SCARY MOVIE was a staggering $278,019,771. The Wayans were attached to the project, which was why the film was successful.

My favorite was SCARY MOVIE 2. The Wayans' were also attached to the sequel.

By the time the third SCARY MOVIE rolled around, the Wayans' weren't involved, which was a big mistake for the powers that be. They should have kept the Wayans on the project.

Just to put into contrast the Wayan name and talent. Marlon Wayans released A HAUNTED HOUSE in early 2013.

A HAUNTED HOUSE was also a horror parody film.

On a budget of only $2.5 million, the film brought $18,101,682 in ticket sales the first weekend, landing in the number two spot.

The film grossed over $40 million dollars after it's run in theaters.  It's all about the numbers.

Marlon was one of the two writers of the film, one of the producers and the main lead. He made some cheddar.

There will also be a sequel to A HAUNTED HOUSE.

Mini-Series Pick: TRADE WINDS [1993 - Interracial Romance, Drama, Suspense] Released On DVD In 2004

 photo 394bf2a0-787d-4434-ba29-eb3c5e357664_zps07699620.jpg 

This mini-series has received various reviews from good to bad, and everything in between. But overall, the majority of the reviews are favorable. As it should be.

Originally broadcast in 1993 by NBC, the network pulled the mini-series before the last two hours were aired. The DVD was later released in 2004 and folks started grabbing it up, adding it to their movie collections.

TRADE WINDS is filled with exotic locations, interracial romance, intrigue, betrayal, forbidden love, feuding families and murder..... yup all the ingredients that make for one hell of a story.

Even though TRADE WINDS boast an ensemble cast, Michael McLafferty and Michael Michele have great chemistry in this mini series and were every bit 'Romeo and Juliet' like.

 Plot [Via Amazon] -
A forbidden love affair blossoms on the gorgeous Caribbean island of St. Martin in this juicy tale of two feuding families vying for control of the island.

Family patriach Cristof Philips (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) attempts to bring the Philips and Sommers families together, but tempers flare when sparks fly between hunky island adventurer Ocean Sommers (Michael McLafferty, General Hospital) and exotic beauty Maxine Philips (Michael Michele, E.R.) newly engaged to another man.

Maxine's family warns her: "This Ocean has a riptide and he will drag you under!," but nothing can stop her from running out in a hurricane for a secret, rain-soaked night of passion!

Tensions grow when Ocean is accused of murdering Maxine's brother Chris in a scuba-diving mission for a cursed treasure, while her fiance is determined to see Ocean behind bars for the rest of his life. Now Maxine will do anything -make any sacrifice - as chaos erupts when the shocking truth behind Chris' death and long-hidden family secrets are revealed.

4.7.13: Fashion Designer Lilly Pulitzer Passes At Age 81

4.8.13: Margaret Thatcher Passes At Age 87 - A Look At Her Life


As a huge fan of Stephen King's work, I'm thrilled that he continues to release a steady stream of work that never disappoints.

However this year will bring forth something that King fans have long awaited for, a story in some way shape or form that would be a sequel to the horror book classic THE SHINING.

In DOCTOR SLEEP, King centers the story around 'Dan Torrance' and puts forth an interesting tale for the now grown Torrance.

King will also release a new novel in the HARD CASE CRIME SERIES titled JOYLAND.

JOYLAND will be released in paperback only during it's initial release. The e-book format will become available at a later date.

I can quite understand King's decision not to release JOYLAND in e-book format initially, there is just no comparing reading an actual BOOK. Even better when it's a good read.

While e-books are convenient, digital book shopping just doesn't compete with browsing a local bookstore or library for your next great book or turning pages, anticipating the next chapter and when you've finished, adding it to your collection housed on various bookshelves.

Even the smell of the pages when you crack open a new book is exhilarating.

That's why even to this day, there is major debate about e-books versus traditional books. It's a topic that will never end.

JOYLAND [Hard Case Crime Series] Releases 6.4.13


Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites.

I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we’re going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being.

Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

 DOCTOR SLEEP Releases 9.24.13

Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.

On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the “steam” that children with the “shining” produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence.

Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant “shining” power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival.

This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

Book Of The Month: [April 2013] - BARED TO YOU By Sylvia Day - [Crossfire Series Book #1]

 photo 77f75d2f-dd81-4bcf-8c28-c7711e5ebd00_zps0b3ad13a.jpg 



Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot.

I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily… Gideon knew.

He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires. The bonds of his love transformed me, even as i prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...

 photo 05785800-683e-4176-8ba8-7dc2dc74a163_zpsce3e2933.jpg 


The hotly anticipated second book of the Crossfire Trilogy continues the sensual saga of Eva and Gideon that began in Bared to You…the New York Times bestselling novel of “EROTIC ROMANCE THAT SHOULD NOT BE MISSED” (Romance Novel News).

Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to.

He was my addiction... my every desire... mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.

We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession..

ENTWINED WITH YOU By Sylvia Day - Crossfire Series, Book #3 is available for pre-order, will release 6.4.13

This extremely popular series has been on my goodreads 'to read' list for a minute. I was looking forward to finally delving into the series to see what the fuss was about.

So it was a must to choose the Crossfire series as this month's book of the month choice.

Currently half way through BARED TO YOU, and I have to say it doesn't disappoint... too much. I do feel the story is a bit rushed and the character development could be a bit more descriptive, but seeing as though the story continues in additional novels, I'm sure additional details will follow.

The chemistry between Gideon and Eva is felt, yet there seems to be a slight discord with the flow of their relationship so far in BARED TO YOU.

With that being said, that is one aspect that keeps you turning the page to see what will become of Gideon and Eva. What secrets are they hiding and will it destroy their relationship?

BARED TO YOU will hold your attention and I'm sure as the end comes to light... you will eagerly start reading REFLECTED IN YOU, book two in the series.... at least I know I will.

Happy Reading!

'Molly, You In Danger, Girl' was a very appropriate episode title for last night's episode of SCANDAL. Another amazing episode with dialogue execution and cast chemistry run amuk.

The edge of your seat drama last night was nail biting, yet exhilarating.

Huck's attack, Quinn stepping up, David well on his way to becoming a part of 'Pope & Associates, Mellie being Mellie, Cy fighting to keep his family together...tho we (the audience) can't forget the brief moment when Cy was going to have his hubby killed to keep the vote rigging a secret, yet panicked and changed his mind at the last minute, Jake not appearing at all who he seems, just when you know he's bad, he 'saves' Olivia the fate of being killed, as we are assumed to believe, then Olivia actually sleeps with Jake and yet after a course of tense drama, Olivia ends up in the hospital and has a very 'special' visitor arrive to see her....and lawd at that moment I was grinning like a damn fool!

Only to have a frown appear on my face when it was announced SCANDAL would be back with new episodes in three weeks! Another freaking hiatus. I have never witnessed a crazy schedule like this for such a popular show.

With all that being said, the best show on television, SCANDAL will return.

Missed last night's episode? Watch it now.

BOOKS: [Have You Read?] - PEARL By Tabitha King

 photo pearl2_zps03e1ca78.jpg 

I recall reading this book years ago, perhaps in the early 2000's. I remember stumbling across it at a local library. I'm shocked that I hadn't given a referral on this title prior to now.

The only reason this particular novel came to mind today, is because I read an article about Tabitha King and her husband, famed horror author Stephen King donating millions to a library. I instantly remembered Tabitha's novel PEARL, and recalled how that at the time that I read it, I was pleasantly surprised that she wrote the main character as a woman of color who became involved in interracial relationships. That was rare to find in a novel, even back then (the 2000's).

Though I didn't read PEARL until the early 2000's, the actual publication date of the novel was 1989.

However besides the interracial factor, the novel PEARL in itself was a great read. The dynamic of the characters interactions, mingled with their flaws set the course of heartbreak, betrayal, love and redemption.

I definitely will read this novel again and add it to my collection. Unfortunately it is not available on kindle. PEARL is available in new and used book editions

 As always... Happy Reading!

Pearl Dickerson arrives in tiny Nodd's Ridge, Maine, to claim an inheritance and lead a quiet life. But soon, exotic Pearl threatens the fabric of everyday life in Nodd's Ridge . . . as she becomes involved with two attractive, very different men, whose seething rivalry explodes into violence.

This gripping, finely crafted novel illuminates the depths and desires of an independent woman and exposes dark truths about life in a small town

Publisher's Weekly Description:
When the admirable heroine of the title, a 35-year-old black woman, arrives in Nodd's Ridge, Maine, to live in the farmhouse bequeathed her by an unknown uncle, local residents gossip a little behind her back, but otherwise do not respond to her color.

Having abandoned her career as librarian, Pearl Dickenson takes over the local diner, and with her deep, throaty laugh and indomitable spirit (not to mention her fried chicken), wins the hearts of both Reuben Styles, who runs the local garage, and David Christopher, the town's resident poet.

As summer progresses, Pearl is happy to find her life weaving seamlessly into the daily fabric of Nodd's Ridge, but the dilemma caused by her liaisons with both Reuben and David takes its toll. As Pearl helps Reuben cope with his wild teenaged daughter, David's past, which includes witnessing the shooting death of his young sister, makes him increasingly unstable.

Occasionally slipping into melodrama, King (author of Small World and The Trap and wife of novelist Stephen) resolves her story happily for nearly all of the small-town characters she brings vividly to life. Pearl's quiet wisdom and prodigious energy make her slightly more mythic than human, but she remains an unforgettable character. Literary Guild alternate.

Good News: RUTGERS Fires Basketball Coach Mike Rice After Video Goes Public

Karma has finally caught up with Mike Rice. It's was past time for the abusive idiot to be fired. Additional deets below.

 Via NY Times:
Rutgers fired Mike Rice, the coach of its men’s basketball team, on Wednesday, a day after a video surfaced showing him berating his players during practices, throwing balls at them, kicking them and taunting them with slurs.

Rice’s termination comes nearly four months after the university’s athletic director, Tim Pernetti, suspended him for three games and fined him $50,000, with little elaboration.

On Wednesday, Pernetti called that decision a mistake and said that he would “work to regain the trust of the Rutgers community.”

Rutgers announced Rice’s termination on its Twitter account Wednesday morning, saying, “Based upon recently revealed information and a review of previously discovered issues, Rutgers has terminated the contract of Mike Rice.”

Rice could not be immediately reached for comment. ESPN broadcast video on Tuesday from practices from 2010 to 2012 that showed Rice’s conduct at practices. The video went viral, putting scrutiny on Rutgers and prompting the university to take further action.
