In exchange for her father’s life, Amarantha agrees to marry the dreadful Beast and be his wife for seven days. Though the Beast cannot take Amarantha’s virginity unless she begs him to, he can and does take her in every other way. From the moment they are alone together, the Beast relentlessly strips Amarantha of all her resistance.


If Amarantha can resist her cloaked and terrifying husband, she gains his entire fortune and will be allowed to return to her family and a normal life. But the Beast seduces her at every turn, exposing, binding, tormenting, and pleasuring Amarantha until she no longer knows her own deepest desires. Increasingly desperate to break the curse that chains his humanity, the Beast drives Amarantha past every boundary. But her desire for a normal life may jeopardize the love that will save them both.

News: Open Road Media's Romance Matrix

romance matrixPublisher Open Road media has launched a new Romance Matrix to help readers discover new titles, new titles that are on sale. There are 17 titles in the matrix, several historical and several contemporary, organized by heat level. The mild books are on the left, and the steamier ones on the right. If you go to the Romance Matrix website, you can click on each book to read a sample from one of its love scenes. These books are on sale right now, until December 17, 2012.


This is an interesting idea, and I think it is a great way for readers to discover new authors - visually. I find the matrix very appealing and easy to use. Also, I certainly am much more willing to take a chance on new-to-me authors when books are on sale.


This picture doesn't do the matrix justice. I reommend that readers check out the following links to experience the matrix for themselves. Plus, you might find a book you would like to read.

BEA 2012 Musings

Earlier this week, I was in New York City for the 2012 Book Expo America. This was my second BEA, and it was much less overwhelming the second time around. But overall, I found the Expo extremely tiring, crowded and often mind-numbing. It has taken me several days to find the strength to actually wrap my brain around my experiences.


There are way too many people at BEA. I am an introvert and get cranky when faced with hordes of people all trying to get somewhere. I only went to for two days, opting to return home on Thursday. There is no way that I could’ve handled another day of the madness.


The lines for most author signings are WAY, WAY too long – especially for young adult books. I definitely hate waiting, but even more so hate the way the long lines wrap into the aisles making it impossible to navigate the exhibit hall.
