January 2020 Wrap Up

IMG_8624Hello, friends! Welcome back to my little corner of the internet. 

Today I’m posting my January 2020 Wrap-Up. It’s kinda wild to think that we’re already a month in to the new decade, huh? I still can’t wrap my mind around it. 

You may or may not have noticed a couple things are different, or have changed recently, here on my blog. What I’ve changed is my GoodReads widget. Before, I had my “Current Reads” up, but I changed that to my “Recently Read” because I don’t exactly update my GoodReads “Currently Reading” thing, like, at all. But, I do change my Recently Read quite a bit in comparison!

What I’ve added to my blog is a link to my shop! If you didn’t know, I now make book sleeves, and they’re pretty cute if I do say so myself! (SHOP LINK BELOW or in the menu bar) Continue reading

48131274._SY475_She’s hot for an alien…

Adriana is the first human to walk the icy planet Rendu as part of an exploration mission from Earth. An extraterrestrial anthropologist, she’s charged with observing the alien culture and finding out what makes them tick. One particularly gruff male makes her heart race and sends her professional judgment out the window…

… but he’s cold as ice.

Taron ad Naals brought an expedition of humans to his planet, only to find his home in political turmoil. The King is dead, and unscrupulous enemies threaten the young Queen’s life. On top of that, a certain voluptuous, warm-blooded scientist is set on uncovering secrets that should remain buried. One warm touch, and he’s hers: she brings him pleasure he never imagined existed.

Her love will melt his defenses.

As Adriana’s curiosity triggers a dangerous mess of galactic proportions, Taron must race to save her life. Yet she is the one who will rescue him – and his entire nation.

Cold Attraction is a steamy standalone Sci-Fi romance perfect for fans of sexy alpha aliens and strong heroines. It features a full HEA and has no cliffhangers.

Cold Attraction took my by surprise…..in the best way possible. I did not expect what this story gave. I expected something a little more cheesy and completely off the charts unrealistic. Continue reading
