KLB tour: The Renfield Syndrome by J.A. Saare

Thank you for stopping by on my stop of the tour.  I would also like to thank KLB and J.A. Saare for allowing me the opportunity to take part.  I really loved this book and hope you enjoy my review!

The Renfield Syndrome (Rhiannon's Law, #2)The Renfield Syndrome by J.A. Saare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vampires, and werewolves, and demons, oh my.

Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she’s about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.

Unfortunately, time changes a lot of things; including those most trusted around her. When she’s faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she’ll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.

After all, when it’s all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul.

So I started this book exactly 10 seconds after finishing the first installment of Rhiannon’s Story (seriously, read it if you haven’t – it’s fracking amazing) and I was not disappointed! It’s hard to write a review and not give spoilers on a book that I liked so much.

The Renfield Syndrome is a rollercoaster of emotions, action and wicked hot passion. Rhiannon is awesome. I love her tenacity, her drive and her gumption. She handles the situation extremely well and sets out to try and make the world a better place. I also love that she's all kick ass and take names later. As for Paine, I have to wonder – does he feel like he does because he can’t see her death or does he really love her for who she is? Disco is not my favorite character in the story this time. He doesn’t give Rhi a chance to explain anything and really hurts her in the worse way possible.

The writing is easy to read, flows well and had little to no grammatical errors. The passion and excitement are definitely felt by the reader while reading. I applaud Rhiannon for not running away and holding her own. I think this is an excellent story, as well as series. I’m waiting, very impatiently BTW, for the next in the series and am sure it will be just as good if not the best!

CBSL: Up a Dry Creek by Avery Flynn & Giveaway!!

Welcome to the CBSL tour stop for
Up a Dry Creek by Avery Flynn 
Review & Giveaway!!

UP A DRY CREEK (Dry Creek #1)UP A DRY CREEK by Avery Flynn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dry Creek has been home to the Layton family for generations, a heritage Claire Layton and her brothers Hank, Chris and Sam all appreciate. Claire is a successful, though somewhat debt-ridden, restaurateur who minds her own business—literally. She has enough on her plate between an irascible chef, an abandoned sous-chef, and the pressure of running her highly praised eatery, Harvest Bistro. But when she discovers one of her customers dead in her dumpster, her world begins to unravel.

Even as her County Sheriff brother Hank and his team are still swarming the property looking for evidence, Claire receives a threatening call. It seems there’s a slight problem involving the dead young woman in the dumpster. She doesn’t have her phone and her flash drive with her. The killer makes it clear that Claire better find them by noon the next day or he’ll go after her and her entire family.

With the clock ticking, Claire searches for the missing items to no avail. Complicating matters is the arrival of Jake Warrick, a hotshot security expert hired by the dead woman’s father to find her killer. Claire’s trying her best to get Jake out of her restaurant when her Jeep goes up in flames. The noon deadline has passed.

Determined to find the killer and to keep her family safe, Claire refuses to back down, even as the murderer continues to terrorize her. Jake isn’t backing down either, and the tension between the two—sexual and otherwise—continues to mount. Jake has no intention of leaving Claire in danger—or of leaving at all before he gets to know her much, much better.

Clues, most leading nowhere, pile up, and the threads of the mystery are becoming still more complicated, even as the killer comes closer and closer to claiming his prize—and his prey. (Goodreads)

Up a Dry Creek is an edge of your seat, breath-holding, romantic mystery. The entire time it has you wondering, where is that damn phone? Claire and Jake are easily both characters to fall for. Claire goes through so much in the story, it’s amazing she holds herself together so well. I feel that she’s a strong woman, emotionally and I appreciate that in a female character. Jake at first in out only to get the information he needs and was prepared to do almost anything to get it. He didn’t expect falling in love, but then again who does?

The mystery/danger element of the story works well, but I feel Claire could have been more shook-up or outwardly afraid. The chemistry and attraction Jake and Claire feel for each other right off the bat is believable and wicked hot. The relationship with Claire’s brothers was enjoyable and humorous at times. The baddie in the story was definitely bad and his character was written well. The writing is easy to read, contains little to no grammatical or spelling errors and is very enjoyable to read. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this story and would definitely read this author again in the future.

Author Introduction: Jason McIntyre - Bled

Jason McIntyre
Author of the bestsellers: ON THE GATHERING STORM and SHED
Plus the #1 Kindle Suspense: THE NIGHT WALK MEN

She only wanted to leave. But he took that option from her. Now she wants it back.

Set on the same island as the reader favorite Shed, the latest literary suspense novella from bestselling author Jason McIntyre picks up the Dovetail Cove saga with this story of one lonely woman...trapped.

Tina McLeod is on the cusp of a new life. Extraordinary change is rare in her world but this newsflash means she can finally leave her small island town for good. No more pouring coffee for townsfolk in Main Street’s greasy spoon, no more living under the weight of her born-again mother. That is, until Frank Moort comes in for his usual lunch and dessert on an ordinary Friday in May.

Bled sees things turn backwards and upside down for each of them. Their encounter is prolonged and grotesque, the sort of thing splashing the covers of big city newspapers. Both are changed. And neither will come out clean on the other side.

A story about taking what’s not yours, Bled explores pushing back when you’ve been pushed too far. It paints in red the horrors from our most commonplace of surroundings: right out in the open where nothing can hide behind closed doors and shut mouths.

About the Author

Jason McIntyre has lived and worked in varied places across the globe. His writing also meanders from the pastoral to the garish, from the fantastical to the morbid. Vibrant characters and vivid surroundings stay with him and coalesce into novels and stories. Before his time as an editor, writer and communications professional, he spent several years as a graphic designer and commercial artist.

McIntyre's writing has been called darkly noir and sophisticated, styled after the likes of Chuck Palahniuk but with the pacing and mass appeal of Stephen King. The books tackle the family life subject matter of Jonathan Franzen but also eerie discoveries one might find in a Ray Bradbury story or those of Rod Serling.

Jason McIntyre’s books include the #1 Kindle Suspense, The Night Walk Men, Bestsellers On The Gathering Storm and Shed, plus the multi-layered coming-of-age literary suspense Thalo Blue.

To purchase Bled, or any of Jason McIntyre's books, visit Amazon and enjoy!!

Bleeding on the page: 
An introduction to the new book ‘Bled’

I started writing the untitled short story which became Bled for an upcoming anthology called Nights Gone By. When I passed 10,000 words on it, I realized I had something way bigger and more involved than a short. I also realized that some of the characters from a previous novella called Shed had crept into the cafe where the main character works in this book. Uh oh, I thought. This means we've started a series!

And, sure enough, as the word count grew, I saw how things needed to evolve on the island where these two stories take place. And, I saw more stories beginning to form. Bled will not be the last book, novella or short tale to take place in the same universe as Shed.

There are more to come.

As for Teeny McLeod, her mom and the patrons of the Highliner Cafe, I'll be honest when I say it all occurred to me when I was sitting at a cafe inside a big box store near where I grew up. Since memories of where I grew up mingle freely with the world of Dovetail Cove and Shed, the two worlds became mentally entwined.

I recognized the sixty-something waitress from when I was a kid and used to visit the same cafe with my grandparents. They would get their sixty-cent coffees and I would get a slice of pie and ice cream. Here was this waitress, all these years later, still pouring the coffee, still bringing out the dessert. I wondered what her life would have been like if, say, one thing had gone differently a long time ago.

I began on Bled, still without a title at that point, only an image of this waitress as a young woman. What might the world have looked like for her, I wondered. And away I went.

Book Blogger Hop 9/8/2011

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

Hard to say. I don't think I'd give up, I'd be super ass sad though. I really, really love Paranormal Romance, it's what got me really back into reading. I think if it all went away, I'd have to double up on erotica, menage and cowboy romances (especially erotic cowboy menage romances).

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?

Hmmm, I think maybe Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights (I know I used that book for last week's post, honestly I'm not obsessed with the book, but I really can't think of another example at the moment).  That's my only bad guy who I wanted to win. All the bad guys int he books I read now are really, really bad and I usually cheer for the hero/heroine when they defeat the baddie. Now if it were a case of the "other guy" - I'd have to say I really wanted Jacob to win Bella's love in New Moon. Sorry Team Edwarders, that's just how I feel.

CBSL: T-R-O-U-B-L-E by Sable Hunter -- Interview & Giveaway!!

by Sable Hunter
Published August 2011 by Secret Cravings Publishing

Trouble comes calling on Kyler Landon. He falls hard and fast for his beautiful, mysterious neighbor after she saves him from a rattlesnake attack.The sexual tension mounts between them with each sensual encounter, but he soon realizes that Cooper has been hurt and is leery of men. So he sets out to teach her that a real man can be gentle, loving, and sexy as hell. Trouble seems to follow Cooper, and Ky makes it his mission to protect her from her past. Kyler would move heaven and earth to keep her in his bed and in his life.


Kyler Landon smoothed the supple leather with a large, roughened hand.  The saddle was almost completed.  This particular saddle would go to the Houston Livestock Rodeo and be presented to the current World Champion cowboy. It was solitary work, but work he enjoyed.  Tooling patterns on the leather was his favorite thing, this one had a vine pattern, and the brand of the cowboy’s ranch figured prominently in the design.  Letting his mind wander, he found himself caressing the leather, remembering the last time he touched the velvety skin of a woman.  Stop! He tried to turn his mind away from sex.  He tortured himself night after night with images of a soft, sweet woman who would welcome him between her thighs.  He wanted a woman who would let him love her as much and as often as he wanted.  A woman that would enjoy his loving as much as he enjoyed loving her.

The sound of a vehicle stopping at his front gate pulled him from his sensual reverie.  He imagined it was the mysterious little black car from down the road, but he knew better.  This was a bigger engine.  Sometimes, when he was working out in the front yard, that car would go by and slow down to a crawl.  The windows were tinted completely black, a great deal darker than was legal, he knew. So, he was at a disadvantage.  He couldn’t see who was behind the wheel, but whoever it was could sure the hell see him.  And they had looked, long and hard.  He could actually, physically, feel their gaze on his skin.

Hell, he had even fantasized about who was driving that sexy little car.  Once, when he had been working on the front fence without a shirt, the driver had actually run off the road.  That fact had made him smile.  Whoever it was, he was getting to them. As his luck ran, however, the driver was probably a woman in her seventies or a man in his forties.  But one could dream.

He sat there too long, dreaming.  He heard the vehicle leave.  Rising from his chair, he made his way out of the Saddlery shop and across the yard to the main house.  A package sat by the front door.  ‘Must have been UPS,’ he thought.  Good!  He had been waiting on some custom silver belt buckles for a special order.  Taking the six front steps in two leaps, he grabbed the package from the floor, opened the door, and let himself in.

Laying the cardboard box on the coffee table, he grabbed a beer and headed back to the yard.  The belt buckles would have to wait.  One of these days, a cold front would head this way and he would want to put a fire in the fireplace, so wood needed to be split.  He opened his mouth to call the dogs, but then remembered he had taken them to the vet for their annual check-up and shots.

Today, it would just be him.  Alone again.  Going to the side of the house, he retrieved his axe.  Chopping wood would go a long way to working off some of his sexual frustration.  Maybe.  Hell, it was worth a try.  The wood was piled out front near the gate, a mix of red oak and hickory, as good for barbeque as it was for heat.  He swigged the beer, and then set the bottle up on top of a fence post.  Ky had employees who could have done this work for him, but he like to keep in shape and there was nothing better than real physical labor to put on layers of muscle—it beat the crap out of a gym, any day.  It didn’t take long for him to find his rhythm and even a shorter time for him to get hot and decide to shed his shirt.

Cooper drove slowly by the Landon place.  Ah, sweet Lord!  There he was.  And the fact she had been a good girl was paying off in spades.  The powers-that-be had seen fit to reward her by letting the sun beat down hot enough to cause Gorgeous to shed his shirt.  She slowed to a crawl.  Sometimes, he would stop working and watch her drive by.  Today, he appeared too busy to notice.  A movement at the side of the woodpile caught her eye.  What in the world?  Cooper was alarmed to see a huge snake crawling out of the stacked logs.  The vibrations of the axe on the wood had obviously disturbed it.  This couldn’t be good.

Cooper pulled over and stopped.  Trying to be as quite as possible, she opened the car door but did not shut it.  The snake was right behind her neighbor and she was afraid to call out, for fear, any sudden movement on his part would cause the snake to strike.  The rhythmic movement of the man and the axe had the snake, seemingly, hypnotized.

She walked as silently as she could, until she was at the fence, right behind the snake.  He was coiled and ready to strike.  Cooper knew snakes, having grown up on in the deserts of southwest Texas.  She quickly recognized that either the rattler had somehow lost his rattles in an accident, or someone had intentionally caught it and removed them for a hat decoration or whatever.

It was now or never.  Putting aside her normal reservations about being so close to a man, she decided his safety was more important than her own.  Climbing slowly up on the fence, she spoke softly. “Don’t move, Mr. Landon.  Don’t move a muscle.”  The snake was huge!  Coiled up, it was hard to judge, but it could easily top five feet.

The beautifully muscled man slowed his movements, until he was still.  “Is this a hold-up?”   He asked the question softly, with a touch of humor in his voice.

“No, but there is a major-sized rattlesnake right behind you, and it’s getting ready to strike.”

I'd like to thank Sable Hunter for taking the time to answer some questions about her writing and some questions about herself.

What's your perfect place to write?
My perfect place to write is in my recliner. It is located in the living room between the fireplace and the big screen TV. I set the laptop on my tummy, lean back and work away. My red wiener dog, Mojo, climbs in with me and stretches his extra long, chubby self right next to my hip. He thinks he is helping, providing me with support and inspiration. And he does. There is an ulterior motive in being next to the TV. It’s not that I'm tempted to watch it - my family can have it on - watching Swamp People, American Pickers, The Blind Side - whatever, and I am oblivious to the picture or the noise. But late at night, when I'm by myself and I need extra inspiration for that difficult sex scene that I'm writing, I can sneak Cinemax late night on and watch one of their juicy programs. Actually, I use Lingerie's Michael Scratch as the inspiration for a lot of my heroes. He is one luscious man.

Which character of yours is your favorite?
I prefer my male characters. I always fall in love with my heros - always. My favorite character in TROUBLE is Kyler Landon. He is what is known as a 'Texas Good Ole' Boy' with a heart of gold and a body that will make any woman fan herself, even in a Texas blizzard. Kyler does manly things to make a living - runs his family's cattle ranch, timber company and makes saddles and other leather items 'just for fun'. In other words -ahem - he is good with his hands. And even better, he is involved in community service projects and loves animals. What is there not to love? But what makes him sexy in my book is that he is the type of man who falls hard, and the woman lucky enough to capture his heart is the center of his attention. He is possessive, protective, and determined to keep her in his bed and in his life.

Least liked?
The least liked character in T-R-O-U-B-L-E, of course, is the villan. Cooper's ex-husband, Richard. is abusive. He has mistreated Cooper, beat her, and tortured her physically and mentally. Misuse of steroids has made him a big bully with an uncontrollable temper. Plus he is a crooked cop who has turned to selling drugs to a Mexican cartel. Unfortunately, Cooper ends up with his record book and he is determined to get it back.

What makes this story different?
In my books, I like to address topics that are sometimes avoided in romances. I have stories that address heroines with cancer, kidney failure, politically incorrect victims of prejudice, surrogate pregnancies gone wrong - I love dealing with circumstances where the heroine grows stronger despite huge challenges and setbacks. In T-R-O-U-B-L-E, Cooper has escaped a bad marriage. She was a victim of severe spousal abuse and he has her convinced that she is ugly and unlovable. Writing the interaction between Ky and Cooper was an emotional roller coaster for me. He falls head over heels for her and aches to show her that a real man can be gentle, loving and sexy as hell. I have decided to give a percentage of my sales to a shelter for battered women in Austin - TheSafePlace.

What are some of the situations in your stories that relate to your life?
Sadly, I do have knowledge of abuse. It's not something that I talk about except to say that no woman should have to suffer at the hands of someone in whom they have placed their life and trust. I also live among Texas 'good ole' boys', cowboys, and all of the Texas and Louisiana culture that make my books into pages from my own life. In my paranormal novels, I relate many of the stories and situations that I grew up with where the older people on my street practiced hoodoo. They thought nothing of going to church in the morning and making an appropriate mojo bag at night to aid someone with their gambling or their love life.

What kind of books/genres do you like to read?
I write what I like to read. I enjoy love stories that take me behind the bedroom door. The first hot-hot book I read was Leslie Kelly's Slow Hands and that book made me replot my first novel to be more erotic. I also like to read horror and non-fiction accounts of ghosts and hauntings. Oh - and cookbooks - I love to sit down and look at one from cover to cover, especially Ina Garten or Bobby Flay.

Do you listen to music when you write? What kind?
No, I do not listen to music. I enjoy playing the piano, but listening to music when I write distracts me. I like an assortment of music - from Elvis to rap - but when I write, music just gets on my nerves.

What was the last concert you went to?
I don't go to concerts. I go to rodeos, casinos and I haunt graveyards at midnight with all sorts of ghost hunting equipment on a mission to prove that love survives the grave.

What are you watching this summer?
I am watching TRUE BLOOD. I have always been a fan of Charlaine Harris. The series of hers that I like the best is the one about the girl who can sense where bodies are buried. But the Sookie series is delightful. I love Eric Northman and Hoyt and Jason - but my dreamboat is the werewolf - Alcide. That shifter is sex personified. My newest hero Joseph McCoy in Her Magic Touch is based on the outstanding beauty of Joe Manganiello.

If you could pick a $500 gift card from any store you wanted, which one would it be?
Give me five hundred dollars on Amazon any day. I love to buy books for my kindle - oh, goodness - I even buy sex toys from Amazon. And it’s my reliable source of San Marzano tomatoes that I use to make my homemade Marinara sauce. The tomatoes are the best in the world and are grown in the volcanic soil of Mount Vesuvius - the great volcano that erupted and covered the ancient city of Pompeii. It was a terrible time in history - but the foothills of that area grow the most wonderful tomatoes in the world.

“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)

I'm seriously looking forward to being able to go outside again without feeling like I stepped into an oven.  Georgia is hot and for a Michigan girl who loves snow and cold weather, I feel like I'm melting.  I say bring on the snow and let me start a fire in the fireplace.

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

****This is going to be a spoiler fest so try to write the title of the book as a dominant feature - and warn people about spoilers.

Ohhhhhh gosh that's a hard one.  I like all of the books I'm reading now and how they end for the most part.  I think I would change Wuthering Heights to actually have a happy ending.  It's one of the most unsatisfactory book endings ever.
