Yes. I am still alive and well. I know. No; I am not lazy. Unfortunately; the world stops when it's testing time...testing prep-time..anything testing related. So, needless to say I have gotten behind on my reading. But GOD has smiled on me and testing will be over on the 26th of April. Life as I know will be back to normal. My normal at least so be patient with me...the reviews are coming!!!!!!

From the first sentence when Frankie longed for Jake Rios to the end of the novella; this was a can't put down read. I started reading with trepidations because I'm not into vampire romance but this was FABULOUS!!! The story centered around Franscesca Stewart; a young woman with had a hurtful past and painful secret. Jake Rios; the mysterious man who worked as a security counsultant guarding the govenor. Frankie as she was called; was not the type to approach a man but she spent many days daydreaming of ways Jake would make love to her. Thing is; the only time they ever talked was when it concerned work. Unknown to Frankie; Jake was drawn to her as well but for reasons she could never imagine. Unfortunately; he had to bide his time because he had a couple of big secrets. Due to several twists; he has to tell Frankie some things rather quickly. I can't give any more away. You have GOT to read this. It has an excellent plot, it's refreshing....it's original in a time when you get all these cookie cutter vampire stories.
Virna DePaul has done a great job with "A Vampire's Salvation". It is original, well written and has a great plot. My only complaint would be that it ended. I give this story 3 1/2 stars out of 4.

I'll start it as soon as I can load it on this dang NOOK!! I have two books I am currently working on. Hopefully tomorrow I will have two updates to share.
On another note....I'm going to juice my page up. I think I have figured out how.

I completed "Toil and Trouble" the second book in the Jolie Wilkins series by H.P.Mallory today. The second book begins with Jolie being held hostage by Bella and Ryder. She goes through a horrendous ordeal only to be helped in her escape by ........not telling.(getting the hang of not giving out spoilers lol) Jolie goes back to Rand and prepares for the impending battle of the Underworld creatures. As fate would have it; in the middle of the battle Jolie is transported back in time to the 1800's. This is where it gets so good you will read like a fat kid eating cake. Jolie finds out about her and Rands connection, and Sinjin and Rands connection and the prophetess connection. A lot of the pieces from the first book into place as well as set the stage for the third book in the series.
I won't tell anymore except to say go out and get the books in this series. They are fabulous. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

I'm just going to give a quick update on my current read..Jolie is preparing to go to battle unbeknownst to Rand. She is enlisting the help of Sinjiin and Mathilda to get ready. I won't drop any spoilers but Rand is currently not speaking to her because of an incident with Sinjiin. Toodles you all until next time.

I am beginning "Toil and Trouble" by H.P. Mallory today. I plan on having it finished within a few days and will give a full review. I completed the previous book last night and could not wait to wake up today to start this one. At the end of the last book, Jolie had secured the help of the Fairy King (spoiler sorry) in the battle against Bella. I will tell more as I read the second installment of the Jolie Wilkins series.
