Week in Books (23)

Posted May 31, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments


I’m down to the last two Psy/Changelings books in my reading pile and I’m taking my time with them, savoring them so I didn’t get a lot read last week. Such a great series, you guys.

Currently Reading

Allegiance of Honor (Psy/Changelings #15 ) by Nalini Singh.

The “unparalleled romantic adventure”* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world…

The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: Old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.

But a century of distrust and suspicion can’t be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman’s cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: A child who is both Psy…and changeling.

To find the lost, protect the vulnerable—and save Trinity—no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?

I’m a little sad that this is the last book in the Psy/Changelings series that I have to read but I’m reading it. The Psy side of this world has really grown on me and I’m super in love with all of the Psy characters that I’ve met, well except for Ming LeBon and Shoshanna Scott and you know, all of those bad Psy characters. But I love me some Vasic, Aden, Kaleb, Sascha Darling, Faith and well, you get the idea.


Shards of Hope (Psy/Changelings #14) by Nalini Singh | 4.5 out of 5

Book Boyfriend

Aden Kai from Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

“Whether we bond or not, your loss would change me forever.” A quiet voice that held so much power it vibrated with it. “You are written indelibly on my soul, Zaira. Nothing will ever alter what you are to me.”

I didn’t think I could love another Psy hero the way that I loved Judd then later on Kaleb and Vasic but Nalini Singh keeps hitting it out of the park with these Psy heroes. Aden Kai was everything that I hoped he would be and he made this book for me. I adored him. I adored the way that he wouldn’t give up on Zaira. I loved the way that he lead the Arrow Squad toward a bright new future and I loved the man he grew up to be. His powers? Wowzers. That is some kind of power. I love it. I loved everything about him and even though his book was the only book I read last week, I probably would have still chosen him for my book boyfriend. He was just all kinds of awesome.


Summer of Sloane by Erin L. Schneider


Wasted Words by Staci Hart
Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs (Jane Jameson #1) by Molly Harper
Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men (Jane Jameson #2) by Molly Harper
Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever (Jane Jameson #3) by Molly Harper

I heard about these books from Nath. They sound good so I’m in.

Man Crush Monday (15)

Man Crush Monday

I can’t stop, you guys. I’m still on this Psy/Changelings series high and this week’s Man Crush is Hawke Snow, the SnowDancer Alpha and this is how I see him.





My favorite Hawke quote?

“You have the power to tear me to pieces, to wound me so deep and true that I’ll never recover. What Rissa’s death did to the boy I was? You have the ability to do a thousand times worse to the man I’ve become.”


Until next week…enjoy!

Throwback Thursday (13)

Posted May 27, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments


I came across a picture that was taken over 15 years ago and I couldn’t believe how small Brenna was and how little hair she had. Haha.

Check it out:


Look at how cute my baby was!!!

She was still crawling around and I’m not even going to pretend that this wasn’t taken at the local Walmart that I used to work at. LOL. She took another picture with the Niko boys (her brothers) right after this but we couldn’t get her to smile or even look at the camera. She wanted to look everywhere else but the pictures still came out cute.

Brenna used to be such a happy baby until she became a cry baby and now? She’s a loud baby. She whines about everything under the sun but she’s still a good kid so I’m proud of the young woman she’s grown to be.

Still, she was stinkin’ cute.
