Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

"Wyoming cowboy Tucker falls in love with the least likely person: Lizzie Vaughan, a reporter from New York who disrupts his life by writing an article about him, pegging him as the last living cowboy. While researching a new story on vampires, Lizzie becomes frightened, and returns to Wyoming and the waiting arms of Tucker. But the vampires, convinced that she is their queen, track her down, kidnap her, and bring her back to New York. Tucker, with his faithful dog, Rex, in tow, heads to New York ready to face whatever vampire terrors await him for the sake of his true love, Lizzie. But he arrives too late. Julius, the head vampire, has already turned Lizzie into one of his creatures. But love prevails, and Lizzie and Tucker must find a way to stay together--and stay out of the sun. "

Well, the title says it all. It's definitely a different kind of romance. I just love it when the writer gives you a totally unconceived version of how vampires came to be. You will love it and Lizzie's cowboy, his family, and friends. Enough humor to keep the story from dragging on too long and enough biblical fact to make you go hummm. Definitely worth your time to read. Just wish there was another book to look forward to with Lizzie, Tucker and of course wonder dog Rex.

Hi Lisa, we just stumbled across your kind review. You might be happy to know that the book was re-released just last month with a sexy new cover. Visit our website for more info, and find us on facebook. We've got two more books planned, but in the meantime, there's plenty of fun stuff on the website, and the new version has "had a little work done as well." Check it out...and thanks again for the great review.
