 Good Friday everyone . Today is a special day for me, I finally got this man corralled and got him to sit down for an interview . Let me introduce you to Keith Montgomery and his book THE SANDRIAN CHRONICLES

Welcome to the blog Keith .
 Thank you for having me today, excited to be here

Tell us a little about yourself –
I’m happily married with 4 four legged children. The third of four children, so I guess that makes me a middle child. I’m a Gemini and I’m sure my wife will confirm, I have two personalities and yet one. Sports is my pleasure. The home town Cavs and Indians are of course my favorite teams. I’m a veteran who served in the United States Air Force for four years, stationed at Andrews AFB in Maryland, and served during Desert Storm. I’m a Treker, Star wars fan and my favorite movie is Marvel’s Avengers.

Before we continue I would just like to say a big THANK YOU  for serving your country and keeping the world safe for us all .

 What are you working on right now?
I’ve started working on Royal Blood, which is book 3 in a possible series of possibly six books. Also, I’ve begun mapping out the Sandrian Chronicles: The Anthology. I have other projects in my laptop that are currently on the back burner along with an idea for a short story for Maximus Shock Vol. 2, assuming that gets off the ground.

 What does your writing process look like.
Chaos! LOL!! There are those who use story boards and such to guide them in the novel creating, but the mad scientist in me has contempt for such order. Only in chaos can true order be found! More often than not, I’m not so much the author of the novel, but a chronicler of events that take place. It often led to twists in Bad Blood then even I didn’t see coming.

 Who inspired you to start writing
I’ve always written. But for the longest it was only to entertain myself friends and family. Gradually, I began writing letters to the editor in the local newspaper. From there, I entered a poetry contest. Though I didn’t win, the poem was impressive enough that it was included in the anthology titled The Whirling Sea. 

 Do you happen to read your reviews and do you respond to any of the bad reviews.
yes I read, all my reviews but so far, out of the reviews I’ve seen, I don’t have and bad reviews. I’m very proud of that and humbled too. In the end, the readers determine how good you are.

What is the best part of the writing / publishing process do you like and which part do you hate?
I don’t know if there’s any part of it I hate. It’s a whole new universe to me. I’m still exploring it and learning and it’s all interesting. I think it’s a good idea that I learn as much about all sides of the process as possible. The day may one day come when I might decide to do for novice authors, what Christina did for me.

 If your book was turned into a movie who would play the main characters?
This is an easy and fun question. I’ve actually thought about this already! If my book were made into a movie, with the cast I have in mind, it would have to make a mint just to break even! Here goes:

Adalius- Jason Mamoa                      Kiel- Chris Hemsworth      Taine- Chris Rock or Kevin Hart
Kalleal- Mike Colter                           Maya- Rutina Wesley Trey   Thomas- Omari Hardwick         Trish- Jenifer Lawrence   Anna Longfellow- Charlize Theron    Gil- Sam Elliot
Well, there you are. And that’s a partial list!

 I have read this book and so agree with all your actors . Especially Jason Mamoa 

 if you weren't writing what would you be doing?
Truthfully, I don’t know. There haven’t been many times in my adult life when I wasn’t reading or writing. 

What do you feel is your best accomplishment?
Another easy question; my greatest accomplishment was getting my wife to marry me! Second was completing Written in Blood. It was one of the most fulfilling, frustrating, hair pulling thing I’ve ever done, and yet it was a labor of love. I truly enjoyed it. I know it makes no sense , but its true.

DO you have and rituals or favorite times to write?
No, anytime is a good time. No rituals, no preambles, just open the laptop and go.


Chocolate Milk

Favorite junk food?
Pizza. Friends have called me a black Italian!

if you had a super power what would it be?
Teleportation. If I could teleport others with me, I’d never drive again!

What if any secret talents do you have?
That’s classified.

Favorite book and author?
J.R. Ward is my favorite author, she’s the bar I set for my writing. Not sure I have a favorite book but my favorite series is the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. VERY good reading

What would you tell any aspiring writer out there?
Never give up. The greatest enemy you will most likely face will be your own self-doubt. Don’t listen to that voice, if it tells you you’re not good enough.  Once you start your project, whatever happens, keep going. Lastly when writing, don’t worry about going back and fixing anything you’ve written. Just get the book down on your laptop or paper. Once you finish, then you can go back and fix your errors or inconsistencies, and get ready, because that’s when the REAL writing begins.  

Last but not least where can people find you?
I can be found on facebook at

Good Thursday all . Today we going to take a look at CHESAPEAKE BRIDE by Mariah Stewart

                           BOOK BLURB

Cassidy Logan has sworn off good-looking adventurers, having just divorced the one she’d married. Now working with her father’s construction company to build ecologically friendly, historically accurate homes on the Chesapeake Bay, she’s designing them for Cannonball Island. Knowing there’s been no new construction on the island in almost one hundred years, Cass is sensitive to the heritage and history of the sparsely populated island, and has come up with plans so perfect she’s determined to buy one for herself to live in. Even the fact that Owen Parker—whom she dismisses as a lightweight and a player— seems to be everywhere she goes isn’t enough to deter her from building her dream house.

Owen is and always has been sinfully handsome and wickedly clever, a magnet for mischief as well as the girls in St. Dennis. He’s also a rolling stone, going and doing whatever appeals to him, from flying a mail plane in Alaska to working on a cattle ranch in Australia and a shrimp boat in Louisiana, to surfing and diving in Costa Rica. When an old friend offers him a job salvaging a sunken ship in the Chesapeake, Owen gladly accepts. Something’s been telling him it’s about time to head home to Cannonball Island, and a job is as good an excuse as any. He’s totally smitten with the pretty architect, but it seems he’s finally met a woman who’s immune to his charms. Sooner or later, Owen will have to face the reason why he always runs, because this time, leaving just might be harder than staying.

 Good Monday everyone , hope you all had a great weekend and stayed dry . Today we are going to review GOING DOWN and MAN CANDY the first book in the five wishes series by Elise Sax .

                         BOOK BLURB 

“Elise Sax will win your heart.”—NYT bestelling author Jill Shalvis

"Elise Sax will make you laugh. Her larger-than-life characters jump off the page and make crazy seem like a fun place to hang out."--Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author of Texas Hold 'Em

“Elise Sax belongs on every bookshelf." -- Melissa Foster, New York Times Bestselling Author

The Five Wishes Series: Novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away. Each novella is approximately 100 pages with NO cliffhanger.

Book 1: Going Down:
Marion MacAlister wants to nail her audition, not get nailed. Truly. Honestly. All right...maybe she does want to get nailed, but that's just because her hottie landlord and local diner owner Mack Ryan is confusing her. Can friends become lovers? Especially friends who might not even be friends in the first place?

Book 2: Man Candy:
Raine Harper is in love with Wade Gates. But Wade likes women who are model thin, and Raine is model thin plus a whole lot of pounds. Desperate to make him love her, she trains just a little too hard and passes out in the arms of superstar movie star Dirk Adams. Dirk thinks Raine’s junk in the trunk is perfect and proposes to make Wade jealous by becoming her pretend boyfriend. Pretend soon seems very real. Is Dirk a great actor, or is something really developing between Raine and the movie star?

                      MY REVIEW 
    Book one Going Down 
   This was such a fun read .  Marion and Mack are so fun to read . They are friends but Mack is wanting more and Marion just wants an acting job.  Will they get together or not . 
  The characters in this short had me on the fence . One min I am wanting to slap Marion because she was so annoying at times . But she does turn it around after the elevator scene . Mack is brooding and oh so hunky and is finally fighting for what he wants . I would love to go fishing with him. Read the story ladies you will understand . 
 The story is short and fun filled laugh riot . 

  This is a really sweet , Raine and Dirk are such a cute couple together . Dirk could care less about the junk in her trunk ,he finds is so sexy . Raine is set on making another man fall for her . Too bad this othe man is a jerk . 
  I really liked Raine I mean we have all fallen for the guy that wants another type of girl . And do almost anything to get his attention while the perfect guy is right under our noses . Dirk is a sweet hunky guy who would do anything for the girl he likes even be a front for her . He is kind and sweet you just want to hug him and kiss him all night long . 
  This is a fun read that will hit home to most of us . The wrong guy and what would we do to figure out he is the wrong guy.  While the right guy is right there. The author has a great sense of humor . 

   Over all I loved both of these stories . Man Candy had a bit more story to it then Going down . There were more characters and it just felt like a better story . Don't get me wrong the first story was hot and the elevator scene was great . I really like the author's writing style , and is so friggen funny . So if you want a good set of stories to read check it out .

 Good Wednesday all , today we have a treat for you . We are going to review a really cool graphic novel in HARLEY'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK by Amanda Conner

                         BOOK BLURB 

The fan-favorite creative team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti joins forces with a slew of superstar comics creators—including Neal Adams, Simon Bisley, Joseph Michael Linsner, Billy Tucci, John Timms and more—for HARLEY’S LITTLE BLACK BOOK.
She’s the psychopathic psychotherapist with a heart of gold and a mind for mayhem. Now she’s uniting with the greatest heroes in the DC Universe in her very own team-up title. Ain’t it amazing?

With the Joker firmly in her rearview mirror, Harley Quinn has become an antihero like no other. But sometimes she runs into threats too, uhh, threatening for any one person to beat. That’s when she turns to a who’s who of the biggest, baddest, most bodacious heroes in the whole universe!

Superman. Wonder Woman. Green Lantern. Zatanna. Lobo. And…Harley Quinn???

Whoever’s tagging along, there’s one thing for sure: Wherever Harley goes, high-octane hijinks are sure to follow!

Flip through at your own risk! Collects the full six-issue miniseries.

                             MY REVIEW

   I absolutely love Harley Quinn she is my soulmate in a way. She may be psychotic and crazy to the bone but she has come into her own in this series . She takes us on an adventure Harley style . Each story in this book Harley meets and teams up with a different super hero,  The funniest part is when Harley steals Wonder Woman's suit and decides to wear it . Each story is actioned packed and you will love each one of them.
   The graphics are awesome and the story lines are so well written  . I am glad that Harley story line is continuing . I feel like Harley is an unsung hero or anti hero in her case. The Harley story line I can see going on and her doing good things and getting into trouble along the way . So if you like HARLEY QUINN and you love super heroes in general check out the series . I promise you that they will bring Harley into your life and have some mischief

 Good Monday all . hope your long weekend has been great . I have a great shifter book for you today . DESERT WOLF  by Linda Thomas Sundstrom.

                         BOOK BLURB 

Grant Wade is a former Texas Ranger. He's also a Lycan Alpha and, in the ghost town of Desperado, he's found a perfect refuge for his desert pack and a place to shelter other werewolves in need of a safe place.
Determined to reclaim her full birthright, Paxton Hall goes home for the first time in decades. Her plan to strike a deal with Desperado's new owner doesn't work any better than her attempts to resist this sexy cowboy. Even as she falls for him, Paxton has no idea what he's trying to protect her from—his animal desire, her own true nature and a rogue predator on the prowl…

                       MY REVIEW 
       Desert wolf is such a good read, It starts off with a bang and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole read too . Meet Grant Wade a alpha of a pack that is hidden in the desert. He is also an ex Texas ranger and as hot as sin . Paxton just inherited the land the ghost town is on and wants to sell  . Will they survive each other and will they survive the rogue that is on the prowl. 
       I love the characters in this book . The author has written such complex, well developed characters . Paxton Hall is such a city girl when she first comes out to the desert to see her land . As you read you find out there is more to Paxton that she even knows and we see her grow and fall in love with everything desert even the tall ex Texas ranger Grant. Now ladies he is hot and I mean swoon worthy and he is commanding in his own way. The sparks fly between these two but there are some things that need to be taken care of first . 
    The story is a nice fast read for those late autumn days . We go on a journey with the characters in this book . The author has a way of writing that will keep you reading all through the night .   I adore shifters and this book was a great page turner . I read it in an afternoon , couldn't put it down  I had to find out the answers to the questions that kept popping up and when I did it was like wow who knew .  And who doesn't like some romance thrown in for good measure . So if you want a great read for the chilly fall night check it out

Books to curl up with: TODAY IS RELEASE DAY

Books to curl up with: TODAY IS RELEASE DAY:  Good Thursday all , today is release day for Mike Evans and his second book in the Demons Beware series . DELIVER US FROM EVIL           ...


 Good Thursday all , today is release day for Mike Evans and his second book in the Demons Beware series . DELIVER US FROM EVIL

                         BOOK BLURB 

Deliver Us from Evil begins fifteen years from where book one ended. Billy and James no longer mere boys are now leading the fight against evil, one demon at a time, doing the work of God.

In Deliver Us From Evil, the demons are back and have spread beyond Chicago. They have increased their threat and now those that fight demons have become the hunted!

The Devil is recruiting for his play in the domination of Earth, and has sought out someone not possessed to do his bidding.

Can head exorcism priests Billy Parker and James Clapper keep evil at bay, or will the demons rule, causing hell to come to Earth?

                            MY REVIEW 
  Devil us from evil starts `15 yrs after the first attack . Billy and James are all grown up and have entered the priesthood . They are part of a special force through the church that deals with the fighting the demons .  Can they keep the devil from taking over the world or will they die trying 
    This is the second book in  the series and when I sat down to read it . I was wondering how Mike was going to scare us now and if he could scare me again . Well he did his job really well . I couldn't put the book down. I was turning pages well into the night . The uneasy feeling I got when I was reading is a good indication that Mr. Evans was on the right track . 
   The character are the same characters that were in book one . They are older and wiser and ready to wage the war on the devil . Billy and James are such strong characters more like brothers then good friends . They battle on the side of good and you cheer for them the whole way through. You will also shed a tear or two as you read and find out what happens to a few of the beloved characters . 
      This book will keep you on your toes as you read . It is fast paced and scary as all get go . You will be on the edge of your seat for most of the book . You will want to protect the main characters as they battle the demons . This isn't a book for the feint of heart . If you cant handle blood and the gore that comes along with fighting said demons . You will question the bonds of good and evil and who easy it is to be swayed . The author is sure to tempt and torture you all at the same time . So if you want a great series to read for your fall and Halloween read check out DEMONS BEWARE series . You will not be disappointed .

Good Wedesday

   Good Wednesday all , I can't believe it is the end of August , where did the summer go . I hope you all had a great summer . Now that the kids are heading back to school its time for fall reading . I know my list is long . Here is a book you might want to add to your list. FIREBINDERS : MAREK . (The Firebinders Series) by Isobelle Cate

                         BOOK BLURB 

A firebinder. A scientist. A blood that heals. A blood that kills. A supernatural mortal in search of his kind. A woman in danger of losing her life and her heart.

Marek Bannach, a firebinder, is in search of the rest of his kind – mortals with the gift of fire in their blood – before they are killed off by someone only known as The Shadow. Accepting his friend’s help of a meeting with a powerful witch in New Orleans, his thoughts of self-preservation get derailed when he rescues a woman who stirs his blood not realizing that she has something he needs.

Gwen Fraser never expected a man with the deepest blue green eyes to keep rescuing her from danger. He intrigues her and sets her heart racing. Escaping those who want to harm her because of her research, she agrees to go to New Orleans with him. En route, he gives her an unguarded moment of pleasure, not realizing that he has something she wants.

Thrown together by circumstances dictated by Serendipity, they succumb to the passion that engulfs them even if only for a few days. But danger isn’t far behind and Gwen’s life is under threat once more.

Now that he has found the woman the universe has decreed to be his, Marek must keep her safe at all cost.

Because he is nothing without her.

***CONTENT WARNING: This story contains adult language and sexual situations and intended for audiences 18+ ONLY***
                    MY REVIEW 

    This is the first book I have read by this author . I must say I was pleasantly surprised . The story grabs you and keeps you engaged through out .  This is the first time I have heard about Firebinders . They really intrigued me their blood can either heal you or kill you . With a magic so powerful they are forced to hide in order to stay safe . Until the day that they have to come together to fight the evil that is bent on destroying them . Marek is a fire binder and when his father dies , he is fated to keep the journal safe and to find the others . Until the day he runs into his mate, the woman who is destined to be his . Will they survive the shadow and will they survive to realize that they are meant to be together .
      The characters in this book are well written and developed . The main character Marek is a sexy alpha type that one minute you want to throw him on the bed and have your way with him and the next minute you want to slap him upside the head . Gwen is a scientist and a kick ass heroine in her own right. She has a logical mind but wants to believe in the magic of Marek . She is also attracted to the man and you want her to get together with him so badly . They are a fun couple to read .
    The author takes us on a magical adventure .  There is a lot going on in this book , murder . mystery a little intrigue and a lot of hot romance . The book started off a little slow but once it hits about the third chapter it takes off . The author has a magical way of writing and it shows in her work . Over all I did enjoy this book and would like to read more from this author . So if you want a different paranormal read check it out .

Good Tuesday all

 Good Tuesday all , today we are going to give you a treat . We are reviewing the TANGLED LIES SERIES by Pam Godwin. A three book series that will rip out your heart and then put it back together .


                        BOOK BLURB 

One promise.
One forever.

One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness.
When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me.
A promise that's destroyed in the most irrevocable way.

Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.

Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn't.
At first, he's a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves.
He knows I'm still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.

Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.

Promises resurface.
Lies entangle.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.

I love two men, and I can only have one.

                            MY REVIEW 

  Well Pam Godwin has done it again . This is not a typical romance book for this author . She has put away her dark side and brought out a story full of heartache and lust with a strong woman and the hot sexy brooding man who wants her but alas something happens . Well you all know how pam writes .

The characters are very well written and trust me ladies there isn't just one hot sexy brooding man but there is two . One, Cole the man in her past , who trust me ladies is all domineering and sexy as sin . Then there is Trace the man who barreled into Danni's life and turned her life upside down . Trace is sex on a stick and wears a suit so well . He is torn , he is hiding something that will drive them apart if he lets go of his control and fall for Danni . Danni is going through her own personal hell and is wallowing until the day Trace walks in . He makes her come to the realization that there is love after tragedy . To me she was just a little needy at the beginning but then her sassiness kicked in and you see her start to heal .

The author takes us on a very emotional roller coaster . In her style she tears us down and then builds us back up . I was hooked by the third page and I stayed up all night reading . The pages just turned themselves . I cried and laughed and swooned . The twist at the end is true Pam Godwin . She really knows how to throw a kink into a budding romance . I can't wait to get my hands on book two I need to know what will happen and I will say this I need a Trace fix . This book boyfriend is so swoon worth , when I was reading the image of Jason Momoa kept popping into my mind and he could play Trace so well . So if you want a sexy read full of angst , healing and sexy sexy times . Check out the first book in the series ONE IS A PROMISE will be a great beach read this summer

book two  TWO IS A LIE 

                             BOOK BLURB 

Two lies.
Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.
And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.

The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.
Fighting and f*cking.
Resisting and submitting.

Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.

I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.

                        MY REVIEW 

    This is book two in the series and starts right where book one leaves off. Danni finds out her first love is not dead and is back to claim her again. But she has moved on after finally realizing that he is dead with Trace the oh so hot casino owner . When she finds out what is happening she is torn , her first love or the man that loves her now and consumes her every desire . This is all out war will there be survivors .

I will say that this one took me on an journey . The characters are so well written . Trace is the strong alpha man who is very intense and will do whatever it takes to win Danni's heart even letting her go . He is all man . Trust me ladies . Cole is another strong character but to me he sometimes comes off as a spoiled child . With the attitude of if I can't. Have her no one can .
Danni to me really needs to grow up . She needs to become the woman that they deserve . She is acting like a brat playing the both of them against each other . I honestly think she doesn't deserve either of them .

Pam takes us on a journey that will hit you in the gut and take you on roller coaster ride of emotions . You will be picking a side and cheering the men on . Team Trace all the way . So if you want a great series to read check it out

book three  THREE IS WAR 
                        BOOK BLURB 

Three means war.
Three sides vying for forever.

My first love.
The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.

My second chance.
Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.

The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight.
I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering.
What options do I have left?

I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

                            MY REVIEW 

    OMG is all I can say . This is the third and last book in the series and Pam out did herself . We have Dani , Cole and Trace all in the same house again. But this time the rules are different . Dani has no say , it is time to play by the guys rules. Will she decide and will they survive each other.

This book had me sucked in from the first page . You can't help but fall for the main men in the story (team Trace all the way) . They are so well written . Co,e the brooding sexy first love . The Trace the hot sex on a stick alpha make . He is just well sigh . Dani well she does grow up in this book . I didn't really feel like I wanted to slap her . They all actually grew up in this book.

This was a fast read for me . The author has a way of pulling you in and keeping you turning pages all night . There are parts of this book that had me fanning myself . Will never look at a Wal-Mart bathroom the same way again. Read the book ladies and you will understand ., the author broke my heart and she then mended back together , just to rip it out again. This series is another hit . If you want a great read check out this series . Pam delivers again and again .
