About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

Romantic Suspense

Okay Everyone,

I am not normally the type of reader who enjoys romantic suspense. I love suspense movies, but not books, because honestly I will flip to the end and rush to see what happened and if I was right in my earlier assumptions.
But, I picked up Aliyah Burke's book Sin is not a Four Letter Word. I have reader several of AB's books in the past and enjoyed them. So, I thought well, this book is a different genre of romance, but I'll try it. Can I say I loved this book twenty times and you all believe me? I loved it. The heroine (Sinjin)in the book is kick ass, like it is nobody's business and boy does she have reason to be. She's got a chip on her shoulder as big as the iceberg that took out the Titanic and a wall around her heart like the Great Wall of China. Now, the hero (Mace)is struggling with emotions of betrayal and righting a wrong from the past, but he has a compelling need for Sin that just won't quit.
This book reads like a good suspense movie. There is always something happening and going on new at each page. But, never to complicated that if you are not a suspense reader you will be confused. Aliyah Burke is a multi-faceted writer that has written a book that is hot, intense and gripping to the end. So, if you haven't read this book or anything by this author...pick it up in eBook or print. You will not be disappointed.

Keeping It S.A.S.S.E!

Hello Everyone,

2009 has start off as an amazing year for Yvette Hines. Yes, little o'le me. First, I discover that my cover One Reckless Night got an Honorable Mention. Then my publisher releases the top five list and I came in number one for December. Than to top it off, I went to All Romance eBooks chat and scrolling down on the first page what do you think I saw. On the top ten list for ARE was Holiday Affair. Can you believe it, I came in number 9. That was one of my items on my wish list. I would look at that list frequently while on the site buying books and think, "One Day I'd love to see my name on there". Well, 7 Jan 09 must be the day. ;)
ARE have a lot of heavy hitters. That site isn't for lightweights or those writers who have thin skin.
For even better news, Coming Together: At Last with my story Shot at Love will be out this month. Volume 1 and 2, with LA Banks doing the forward. I'm in Volume 1. The awesome thing about this book is all proceed go to Amnesty International. That's right!!! You can support a worthy cause by picking up your copy of this book.
So, to all the readers who picked up a copy of Holiday Affair or any other book by Yvette Hines in 2008, I thank you and hope not to disappoint in this new year.

Happy Reading!
Keepin' It SASSE in 2009!!
