To distraction

Hullo. *g* Okay, last week we got this email from Harper Collins Publishers. Since I’m being lazy LOL (actually, have a new post, we’ll have that tomorrow :P), will just copy paste it here:


Dearest Book Bitches,

I’m not sure if this is something you might be interested in posting about, but we’re working on a unique opportunity for readers of romance with one of our biggest romance authors, Stephanie Laurens. We’re releasing her new book, To Distraction, two weeks early as an ebook! This is a great chance for romance lovers to get a jump on an upcoming title and to read it before all their friends do—weeks before it hits the stores! We just posted it live, at: harpercollinsebooks.com. Free excerpts from To Distraction are also available for download.

Please feel free to let people know. We’re gearing up for a lot of romance, and I’m happy to send some your way!! We recently launched our Avon Red imprint (erotica), and we have a fan fiction program launching soon (avonfanlit.com). Keep in touch, and let me know if there’s anything you need.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks,
Dave


What are you waiting for? Go check it out! *g*

PS. For those of you who have yet to read The Other Boleyn Girl, our August BBC selection, I just want to remind everyone discussion will be on Monday and Tuesday next week. You all better be reading!

PPS. Can you believe August is almost over? Boy, how time flies. Anyway, Trollop and I have a lot of goodies in store for you guys this coming WHOLE first week of September. Uh-hmm. What, you may ask? Stay tuned. *wink*

I've never read a Stephanie Laurens book. Any recommendations?

Thanks bitches!

Lollie, if you want to try SL, her Cynster novels are okay. Though the series has produced too many books, I stopped reading after On A Wicked Dawn. LOL

Her characters seem to stay the same with most of her novels, only the names seem to change.
Mildly good historical romance reading, but not great.

I have to agree with Aggie about SL. Her books are all the same. Same plot, same characters, just different names. I admit liking the first few books in the Cynster series, but it got so repetitive I stopped reading. Hot sex scenes though. LOL

Thanks ladies. I'm thinking of getting Devil's Bride since my UBS has an available copy. I looked it up at Amazon and it's the first in the series. Will let you fab women know if I like it or not!

I'm with Aggie and Petra about SL. Her Cynster novels are all the same. Not bad, but you know, not good either. But yeah, there's always the HOT sex. LOL And boy, can she describe how to kiss or what? I liked that actually.

OOh, a Publisher contacting your blog, Bitches! very Impressive *clapping*

Here's my little list of "The Best of Stephanie Laurens. She has a style all her own, and is worth reading, but some of the Cynster books get redundant. IMO:
(in order)

PROMISE IN A KISS
DEVIL'S BRIDE
ALL ABOUT PASSION
ON A WICKED DAWN
ON A WILD NIGHT

These Cynster's are HOT heroes, no doubt about it! I thought all of the above books were excellent!

The only SL book I liked is DEVIL'S BRIDE. LOL BTW, am I the only one who thinks the names of her heroes are a tad weird? Devil? Vane? Demon? Lucifer?

Jolie, you're right about the names! What's up with those?

Oh boy! Goodies! Can I just mention that my bday falls on the first week of September? LOL

Jolie, I believe those are nicknames from the Cynster boys' adolescent years.
