8.28.13: The 50th Anniversary Of Martin Luther King Jr.'s March On Washington - Keep His Dream Alive

Dr. King's legacy lives on, despite some attempting to make his dream a nightmare. The good far outweighs the bad.

We must continue to keep his dream alive and not be knocked down or disillusioned by self-interest groups that will fade into the background sooner than they think, as we continue to move forward past all obstacles in the way.

 Rest in peace Dr. King.

Daisy Johnson Keane has a lot to be thankful for. However, happiness has always come at a price. In the past Daisy chose to gamble with love for what she believed her heart desired. It proved to be a costly mistake.

But Daisy has changed and so has the man she now calls husband. Aiden Keane, a powerful casino mogul and master manipulator who has been tamed by love. Or has he?

Aiden Keane has a secret. The man he despises believes himself to be the father of Aiden’s child. To reveal the truth would expose a web of lies and take him and his new bride down a dark path that could ultimately cost him everyone he cherishes. His wife Daisy pleads for patience and compromise. She wants to be done with the past and the animosity between her ex-lover and her husband. It will not be.

What is a man to do when his heart tells him to have faith in her but his pride demands a under handed dealing of justice? If you’re Aiden Keane you strike first. Do what is necessary for control, and vengeance over your future and past. You let it ride. At any cost.

No Regrets is the final story in The Tale of Three Hearts Trilogy. The final exploration of the dark side of love that will leave you, the reader, breathless from page one to the ending consequences. The lives of Daisy, Aiden and Pete are now forever changed. Who will be the victor? Only true love, forgiveness and repentance will decide.

Check out the previous MUST READ titles in the series if you haven't read them as of yet.

Book one in Aiden & Daisy's story from the (Tale Of Three Hearts Series) was the 'Chocolate Chick' January 2013 book of the month pick, again if you haven't read the series.. catch up by reading book one and two.



Meet Aiden Keane: rich, sexy, and bored. He owns Vegas and every lost soul looking to make it rich. No bets are placed at the infamous Shamrock Hotel from which Aiden Keane doesn't collect.

But with all that he's acquired, he's squandered even more. Arrogance and curiosity draw Aiden to a young couple down on their luck.

One look at Daisy Johnson and a plan forms. A young woman, whose simple, small-town upbringing makes her crave the glamorous life, seems the perfect prey for Aiden's wanderlust.

He approaches her and her boyfriend with the promise to make her dreams come true. But does he? A deal is made. One sex-filled night on his terms with Daisy Johnson will bring about a bounty of a million dollars, free and clear. The stakes? Her dignity, and her young lover's pride. Can the love of money and a young woman's greed destroy the bonds of 'true love'? Aiden thinks so. It's a wager he's sure to win--until he, too, learns a valuable lesson: play with the wrong woman's heart and you may lose your own.

*Also read book #2 in Aiden's, Daisy's and Pete's story... DAISY'S CHOICE



In the game of hearts there can be more than one loser... Take Daisy Johnson, for starters.

She came from nothing but now she has it all: a thriving business, a beautiful daughter, and the financial security that makes her the master of her own destiny. Yet the memories of two very different loves cast a shadow of doubt and fear that keeps her trapped in self-imposed isolation.

Aiden Keane remains haunted by the games he played with one woman's heart. Now she's gone, and his obsessive nature has fueled a five-year mission to find her. Her rejection and disappearance has left him wondering if he'll ever see her again. But what Aiden wants, he wants, and he will risk it all to find and claim her once more.

Pete Doyle wants a fresh start. He's sure as hell earned it. It's taken him five years to get over his first love and the role he played in destroying it. Now he has a new girlfriend and a business opportunity of his own. Pete wants closure, or maybe something more. Until he understands which of the two is most important, his life continues in limbo.

Tragedy hits the small town of Hollow Creek, and the paths of all three players collide in the most unexpected of ways. Daisy had her reasons to remain hidden from both of the men in her past. When all her secrets are uncovered, Daisy is faced with one question: does she have any choices left?

Sad News: Lee Thompson Young (The Famous Jett Jackson, Rizzoli & Isles Star) Commits Suicide, Dead at 29

Side Note: My goodness! This is just so tragic. Lee Young was talented, successful, smart, gorgeous and on one of the most popular shows on television.

Don't know what demons he was fighting, but hope he has found some peace. Wish he could have sought some type of help instead of the option of suicide. Again, extremely tragic.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.

 photo 3633bebf-93c3-4852-a527-464595ee5bee_zps44fb73d6.jpg 

The second novel in the popular "Submissive Trilogy" by Tara Sue Me is now available. Book two in the series released yesterday.

Continue the explosive romance between Nathaniel West and Abigail King. Be sure to pick up book one ["The Submissive"] in the series if you haven't read it. Very interesting read.

Update 8.8.13: Just began reading 'The Dominant', (recently finished 'Divergent... it was epic. Will read 'Insurgent' soon). F.Y.I 'The Dominant' is basically the same story as 'The Submissive', being told from Nathaniel's perspective. Lawd Mr. West, Mr. West. We get the chance to find out what was going on in Nathaniel's mind during the events that took place.

Now comes The Dominant, the continuation of the tantalizing trilogy by Tara Sue Me, which has captivated millions… Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control.

As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits.

Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt.

But when Nathaniel begins falling for Abby on a deeper level, he realizes that the trust must go both ways—and he has secrets which could bring the foundations of their entire relationship crashing down...

Book Of The Month: [August 2013] - DIVERGENT By Veronica Roth

 photo d226a8fd-bdd9-48f6-b6b0-8456d1f1d119_zps6a64e4fc.jpg 

The uber successful young adult book series DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth has been catapulted into an international sensation. The popular book series is now a motion picture, set to release in 2014. So I'm excited to delve into this series and find out what all the fuss is about.

So, the book of the month choice for this month [August] is DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth. Also be sure to grab the second book in the series, INSURGENT and pre-order the third installment titled ALLEGIANT, due on bookshelves October 22, 2013.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent).

On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences.

As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the YA scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

Sylvia Day's CROSSFIRE Series Heading To Television + THE Man Who Should Be Cast As Gideon Cross, In My Opinion... O. M. G.

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

Sylvia Day's wildly popular 'Crossfire' series that centers around the tumultuous, loving and passionate relationship of Gideon Cross and Eva Tramell is heading to television.

Both damaged in their own ways, each try to heal from their emotional wounds to allow their minds to understand and adhere to what their hearts are refusing to let go of, each other. It's one hell of a roller coaster ride.

A must read series if you haven't already delved into it. I'm sure the 'Crossfire' television series will spark another successful foray onto a different platform for Sylvia Day.

Will you tune in? Of course! Additional deets below...


 By: Lindsay Deutsch, USA TODAY
It's official! Sylvia Day'sCrossfireseries is headed to small screen. Lionsgate, the production company behind the new Netflix seriesOrange is the New Black, has optioned the best-selling erotic trilogy. No network has yet signed on.

Day's books, which are often compared to E.L. James' Fifty Shades series, have sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. The most recent book in the series, Entwined With You, debuted at No. 1 on USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list in June. The series centers on Eva Tramell, a young woman in the New York advertising world, and her steamy relationship with billionaire businessman Gideon Cross.

Day spilled the beans in an interview with Bookish in June, in which she talked about the big news. She said she'll act as an executive advisor, but will not write for the show. And of course, since it's a book known for its erotic sex scenes, Day addressed how they'll approach the subject for television: "Usually, protagonists in erotic romance have difficult times communicating verbally, so the way that they get their feelings across--whether it's anger, happiness, love, lust, all of it--is during the sex scenes. You really couldn't do a PG version of Crossfire! It just wouldn't work. They have that in mind. We're all on board with the fact that it would need to be premium cable, on which recently we've seen a lot of wonderful book-to-film adaptations: Game of Thrones, Dexter, True Blood."

Day goes on to say it's expected that producers will follow the storyline as she wrote it. "I'm sure we'll see a lot of that translated to film, which should be interesting and hopefully not too hard on the actors... I'm really excited. And of course, it's Lionsgate, which has The Hunger Games and Twilight; they're working on Divergent right now. This is a studio that is very familiar with book-to-film adaptations and doing them really well and staying true to the stories. I expect no less with the Crossfire series," she says.

"Sylvia has created an enduring, sexy and edgy story, and we're looking forward to working with her to create a show that both excites and connects with audiences as her books have done," said executive vice president Chris Selak in the studio's press release.

The first book in the series, Bared to You, reached No. 5 and has spent 65 weeks on USA TODAY's list, and Reflected in You made it to No. 2 and has spent 43 weeks on the list.

Now who should be cast as the gorgeous Gideon Cross? In my opinion, model/actor JUSTICE JOSLIN should at least be given a screen test. If he's interested. Good gawd he is scrumptious! He also has a gorgeous brother, singer/songwriter JEF JOSLIN

Condola Rashad & Orlando Bloom To Star In 'Romeo & Juliet' On Broadway

 photo rashadbloombroadway_zpsc4d0adca.jpg 

Get ready for another version of William Shakespeare's classic story 'Romeo and Juliet'. This Broadway installment will star Condola Rashad and Orlando Bloom.

This highly anticipated production will preview on August 24th, and will officially open September 19th.

For additional information and/or to purchase tickets, go to

 Via The Hollywood Reporter:

Directed by David Leveaux, the mixed-race contemporary staging will begin performances August 24 at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre.

NEW YORK -- A cool and crisp image of William Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers is the first photograph released of Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad in the upcoming Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet.

Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad to Play 'Romeo and Juliet' on Broadway The two leads are seen clad in pristine white as they lock eyes on a white bed in the shot by photographer Robert Ascroft.

Directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux, the production will retain Shakespeare's original language but adopt a modern setting, adding to the conflict by making the Montague family white and the Capulets black.

However, a press release on the production reads: "While race defines the family lineages, the original cause of the ‘ancient quarrel,’ passed down by successive generations to their young, has been lost to time."

The play begins preview performances on Aug. 24 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, with its official opening night on Sept. 19. Bloom will be making his Broadway debut opposite rising star Rashad, who has scored consecutive Tony nominations in the past two seasons for her work in Stick Fly and The Trip to Bountiful.
