When young Angelica meets Lucien at a business function she quickly discovers just how dangerous and sexy Lucien is, as he seduces her into an erotic world of dominance and submission using a mysterious pleasure technique called the 'Devil's Touch'.

 5 Sassy Books!

Review- Miss Sparx I have a question for you. How is it that you know about "The Devil's Touch" hmmm???

For an author who has dedicated her time to writing mostly erotica, Vivien never repeats herself. She continuously amazes me with her creativity and imagination (although sometimes I think maybe it's not just her imagination with some of the things she comes up with!). The Devil's Touch will shock and amaze you with the intensely sexual situations that Sparx puts her characters in. She has created an addictive storyline that will have you to glued to every word until the very end.

Insanely erotic and steamy, The Devil's Touch will capture your mind and have you curling your toes in anticipation of what's to come next. It may even spike your interest into trying something new.

Just like the rest of her stories, this one is not to be missed! If you like sexy, intense, erotic, dramatic, heated reads then this is perfect for you!

What one angel will risk to earn the title of Herald,
is matched only by what another will do to keep it.
 
Heralds are the most powerful of all angels, secretive and feared, created for a single purpose. Only those most courageous and worthy earn a place within the elite choir, and only by breaking ancient oaths held sacred can the honor be stripped. It's a punishment that hasn't been imposed in over two-thousand years, until a single reckless act sets off a firestorm, threatening to consume all creation.

Rise Hawke never suspected she'd been marked to play a role in the deadly events unfolding in the spiritual realm. Independent and resistant to authority, she isn't thrilled when she meets Dominik, an angel with new wings, an old grudge, and a mysterious agenda he's determined to impose.

Vowing to uncover the secrets kept from her, Rise soon learns that knowing what you are isn't nearly as dangerous as discovering why. Hunted by those who want to destroy her, and controlled by those who would see her fulfill her purpose, she is forced into a brutal battle set in motion long before she was ever born. It soon becomes clear that what one angel will risk to earn the title of Herald, is matched only by what another will do to keep it.

Book Review: Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Title: Alice In Zombieland
Author: Gena Showalter
Release Date: 1st October 2012
Published By: Harlequin Teen Australia
Copy: ARC from Harlequin Teen Australia

Description From Goodreads:

She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave.

Forever.


Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.



My Rating:
 
 
 
 
 
My Review: Firstly I'd like to thank Harlequin Teen Australia for sending me this book in return for an honest review.
 

This was my first ever zombie book and I must admit It's not what I expected, it was so much more! Gena Showalter has created a new way for zombie's to terriorize this world and all of us in it.
 
We meet Alice Bell, she's had a sheltered life due to her father's crazy antics, for he believes that monsters (zombies) are real and they are coming to get him and his family. One tragic night and Alice's world was turned upside down, changed forever! Now she must trust in everything her father taught her in order to survive.
Starting a new school Alice meets some new friends and catches the eye of an unusual boy named Cole Holland, from the very first glance there is a strong connection between them. Sparks literally fly off the page! After that moment they can't stay away from each other. They both have secrets to be revealed. Oooooo sounds good ha?!
 
The characters, the plot, everything together makes this book a 'can't put down read'. I was hooked!
 
For people that are a little afraid to venture into the zombie realm, this book is a safe start. It puts your imagination into overdrive and a little warning it may preduce goosebumps lol.
 
So, why not add this amazing book to your TBR lists I recommend this book to EVERYONE!!
