Book Spotlight - Kiss Me, Dancer

Book Spotlight!
Kiss me, Dancer
Alicia and Roy Street

If you're looking for a good romance novel to cozy up to, check out this one.  It's great!  Alicia and Roy Street are a husband and wife writing team, and they are a great one!  If you've never read one of their books, then you have truly missed out. This one is about a ballet teacher and the father of one of her students.  It's a great read that is not to be missed.  Would make a great Christmas gift for someone who likes romance novels!

Book review - Hot and Forbidden by Patricia Macias

Book review of:
Hot and Forbidden by Patricia Macias

This is the second book in the De La Cruz family saga by author Patricia Macias.  For info on the first book, check out my review link just above.  And for those who may be wondering, no you don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy the second.  But I highly recommend that you do - read both books, for the author has created a fascinating group of characters that you get to know more about through these books.

This book is about two other members of the De La Cruz family, Nicolas and Daniella.  They are cousins, and they fall in love.  At first they fight the feelings that they have for each other, knowing that it is wrong for them to be in love, since they are cousins.  But eventually they can’t fight the feelings that they have for each other, and give in to them.  And this is where the story really begins, for they must hide their relationship from their family, which is not easy.  For they come from a very close family that is always in each other’s business.  So how do these two forbidden lovers hide their romance from their family?

Ahhh, now you know I don’t tell.  To find out, you have to read the book.

This book and it’s predecessor are just part of a series that the author has planned.  I look forward with great anticipation to the coming books in this series, and I highly recommend both of the published books to readers everywhere.

ebook review - Goblin Spells Unicorns by Christina Worrell

Today I am reviewing the ebook - 
Goblin Spells Unicorns by Christina Worrell

Author’s website

The book, Goblin Spells Unicorns, is an absolutely charming children’s book.  If you kids like wizards, goblins, and unicorns, then they will like this book.  Check out this quote from the book:
Goblins are short, green, and bratty.   Not one goblin likes to work.   They’d rather play all night and sleep all day in their caves under trees.
This book is about 2 little goblins who work for a wizard.  Now the problem all comes in when they get lazy and careless in their work.  And this leads to the creation of a unicorn, which leads to more problems.   In the end, the goblins learn a lesson, and the unicorns win the day.  To find out just how all this happens, you have to read the book.

What makes this book even more special is the dedication.  Here are parts of it:
This book is dedicated to Super D from his mother and sister.   We wrote this together for him.   Super D’s autistic and has ADHD as well as speech and physical disabilities.
He says he’s a super hero, wants to fight bad guys, and save people.   All proceeds from this book will go to this hero.
The profits from sales will help buy him educational toys and supplies, clothes, and a swing set for his back yard.
Super D also asked me to let you know that he is strong, brave, and will save you from bad guys if you just ask.
So when you buy this book for your child, you are helping out another child.  It doesn't get more great than that.  You can check out Super D’s facebook page via the link above.
