Here’s this week’s question:
 Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off of a Mardi Gras float -- what would you do to have them throw to you…?
Oh My! I've never been to a Mardi Gras.
I guess I would make my way to the front of the crowd and simply hope that they were throwing in my direction.

Todays Tease comes form Eternal Vows by Chrissy Peebles

The Blurb:

Never marry a stranger... even if he is a drop-dead gorgeous immortal king.

Never pretend to be a princess.

And most importantly... never slip on an ancient wedding ring you know nothing about.

Sarah Larker returns to a cave where her sister disappeared ten years earlier. She walks through a portal and is mistaken for a runaway princess on the run by a dangerous immortal king in medieval times. Her plan is bold as well as daring-become this princess, wed the king, and slip on an ancient wedding ring that will unlock the portal back home. Then find her sister and run as fast as she can out of Dodge. But taking on the identity of Princess Gloria comes along with dangerous consequences; and slipping on the ruby ring comes with an even higher price.

The Tease:
"You're mine now - forever. Our bond is unbreakable, the spark between us never to be quenched." In slow motion, she saw his face lower onto hers, their lips barely touching. His hand wandered to the low of her back, drawing her closer, her chest pressing against his as his lips came down harder but with nowhere near as much force as she would've expected from such a man.
Sweet and gentle? That'll work. Don't all fairytales end with the perfect kiss? A flame spread over her, spanning from the tips of her toes to the top of her head. He wasn't kidding about that spark!

Stacking the Shelves #20


Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks.

Okay, so a few weeks ago I came across a box set of the the first three books in The Mortal Instruments Series for half-price, and of course since I haven't started this series yet, I couldn't resist adding it to my collection.

This week, deciding to make the set as complete as it can be, I chose to add #4 and #5 to my shelf. Now I just need to find the time to read them sequentially.


As many of you might be aware, Book #6 - The City of Heavenly Fire is due for release in March 2014.

Okay! So what did you add to your shelf this week?
I'd really like to know.
