Dark Side of Sunset Pointe (A Lance Underphal Mystery) By Michael Allan Scott

What is this book about?

This book is about a man name Lance Underphal, who life was turned upside down due to his wife death. Barely hanging on the brink of survival he takes a job as a crimes scene photographer just to make ends meet. While at the scene of the double homicide he is immersed in phenomenon not only can he hear his dead wife but also he begins to have premonitions of the past murder and the future ones to come. Underphal doesn’t want to accept his apparent gifts, which is causing him further grief. He struggles with dealing with the supernatural events because he is on the brink of losing reality. Determined to do the right thing, Underphal reached out to a hard-ass detective Salmon to help him solve the case. As they race to expose and catch the killer they are tied in to more of a tangle weave of sex, drugs, murder and greed. Its hard to determine the who, what, where, when and how when there are several suspects with a motive to commit murder.

Interview With Tara Sivec

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?  I’m awesome, the end.
Ha, just kidding!  Okay, no I’m not.  But seriously, I am *cough* 35 *cough*, married to my high school sweetheart (no joke, we met on the school bus when we were 12), have 2 kids, entirely too many pets and live in Ohio.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?  I kind of always wanted to do something creative in that regards.  I’ve been writing poems and short stories for as long as I can remember.  It wasn’t until a few years ago that I finally decided to just bite the bullet, concentrate, and write a full-length book.

Title: Troubles and Treats
Series: Chocolate Lovers #3
Author: Tara Sivec
Release Date: November 30, 2012

Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives - well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.

With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren't on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the disconnected duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple's lives.

Troubles and Treats Will Be Released On 11/30/12 and Giveaway News!

Tara Sivec's 3rd book in the Chocolate Lover Series is expected to be released on November 30, 2012, I am so excited about the release of Tara's new book that I wanted to jump in and help spread the word about these amazing books.   I bought Tara's book weeks before I actual read it.  I had no idea of what I was missing out on. Seductions and Snacks was laugh out loud funny from the first to the last page. The folks in my house wanted to smack me silly because I was interrupting their quiet time in the house. LOL :-) when I found out that Tara did a sequel to seduction and snacks I immediately had to buy it an boy was Futures and Frosting's just as funny. Please check out my review on Seduction and Snacks and Futures and Frosting's by clicking on the links.  (Please don't forget to scroll to the bottom to enter Tara Sivec's AWESOME Giveaway)


I thought it would be a bunch of arguing and pointing fingers about whose fault it is that we’re not having sex anymore.  

Maybe she doesn't think that’s the problem.  Shit, maybe that isn’t the problem.  Maybe it’s just my problem.  She’s not faking a work injury, she’s not cheating on me…what the hell else could it be?  A few years ago she cut me off from sex for a week because I gave her a Dutch Oven in bed one night.  While hilarious, it’s never a good idea when your wife is naked and getting ready to mount you. There was another time when I gave her a Wet Willy when she started coming.

The Druid Breeders Novel By Marata Eros

I want to start off by saying I really enjoyed the series of the Druid Breeders and was excited to see that the author continued with the story by writing the novel and I look forward to this novel turning into a series.
The book is about a raging war in survival.  The faction, reapers, vampires and priest must race to fight for the druids in order to preserve their coven.  Each coven wants the druids for either their magic or breading in order to tip the scale in the battle against their enemies. There are so few druids left, so to preserve their coven the reapers make a pact with the druid’s guardian Jasmine. Both Druids and Reapers must complete a ritual in breeding in order to preserve the life line of the reapers and to start the new world order while the priests are plotting to steal the druids to increase their magic. The faction are watching and plotting their own strategies to inquire the druids for themselves.  In the mist, there lies an important trump card that no one is expecting. A druid queen with exotic blood a rare lineage that is so sought after. As the war begins to collide the druid queen’s father must race to join the battle in order to save his daughter. Black magic and the undead make an appearance in this battle; and it’s hard to tell who is friend or foe because there is trickery amidst.
