Historical and spicy romance author, MarianneTheresa, is my special guest poster today. She writes stories with sizzle and spice, with her first short story, Hidden Passions, out now with Momentum Books.

When a guy falls in love with a mate’s girl, there is only one thing he can do … leave town.

When Chad Whittaker receives a frantic call for help from the woman he loves he’s on the next plane home to Sydney.

But will he get there in time?

Cally Foster just kicked her boyfriend’s no-good, lying, cheating ass out of her apartment and her life. That’s what a girl gets when she falls for the wrong guy.

So why does she feel so desolate? Shouldn’t she be on top of the world?

Not when her fickle heart is crying out for another man she loved all along and may never see again.

You can find out more about MarianneTheresa at the bottom of the post.

So tell us, MarianneTheresa, what’s in your TBR pile?

My TB read pile is as much an assortment as a 20cent bag of lollies used to be at the corner store.

There is Paranormal holding hands with Historical dancing with Contemporary who is dining with Sci-Fi Fantasy & Spicy Romantica titles ….  I love ‘em all

Erica Hayes has a new series out, The Seven Signs. It’s based on the Biblical Apocalypse and set in the near future.  It has all my favourites, Hunky Hero & wonderful Heroine, Angels & Zombies and of course HEA… usually a must for me in stories. Book#2, Redemption, has just arrived and I can’t wait to get to it.



What I’ve just read:

The Last City by Nina D’Aleo

This story was fast paced and kept me reading till the end, hardly could I put it down. One of those, stir the gravy with one hand and hold the e-reader with the other kind of books 🙂

It’s a crime/ sci-fiction blend. The romance was not as strong as I prefer but in this story I did not miss it too much. A battle of Breeds, machines & races in a combat against time and evil.

What I’m reading:

Not being a great T.V watcher I read in preference, but I have been bitten by the MKR bug and it has *eaten* into my reading time.  So by the time this post goes to air I’ll probably have finished this book, but plans are for Bound By Lies to be next. It is the 2nd in the Medieval Fantasy Series by S.E.Gilchrist (Bound By Love is #1) 





What I want to read:

Don’t you love it when you find a new author? Deborah Challinor is a New Zealand Author and she writes History (my favest genre) – Fiction & non-fiction. I’ve read her first Historical Trilogy set in NZ & now I want to start on her Historical Series set in Early Australia. The first one Behind the Sun is out now.
