Do you prefer writing sexy scenes or action scene? with Terry Spear

Do you prefer writing sexy scenes or action scene? I love both. I’m really big into thrillers, mystery, action and adventure, and suspense, so it’s really easy for me to write action scenes. They just come naturally. I can see them happening, and then after I quickly write them down, I’ll go back in to add more emotions, the thrill in the actions, more details. With sexy scenes, I have to work more at them. Why? Because that has to do with the characterization. What one hero would do, another wouldn’t. How one would react in a situation will be different than another. And the same with the heroine. As I develop the characters further, they show their playfulness, their sexier side, the romance, the […]

SEAL Wolf Undercover is my first Terry Spear novel and I really enjoyed myself while reading it. With it being the #22 in the Heart of the Wolf series I did not feel lost at any point in the plot. Like most PNR series I’m sure each book has its own plot line with inter-crossing world building and characters. In fact I was curious about some of the secondary characters so I researched them and the jaguar couple has their own book in the Heart of the Jaguar series (A Very Jaguar Christmas #5) so I may start reading that series from the beginning since it’s a shorter series. But someone new to the series like  me can easily jump in with SEAL Wolf Undercover. Jillian and Vaughn start […]

                  I discovered the Shadows of the Immortals series as it came out this year on audio. It was a pleasant surprise containing many elements I enjoy. There is magic, many types of paranormal beings in this fascinating world. After three books, I don’t know if I understand very much about how the world works. Hollie Jackson continues to do a fine job with the narration. She is Lexi to me. There were many new and interesting characters in the underworld for her to give voices. She made it all come to life and allowed me to focus on the story. Lexi, providing our view of everything, doesn’t know much about her family or how she got her skills, […]

  Check out my review for both books in the Penelope Blue series next Tuesday!   In the mean time enjoy this excerpt from Saving Mr. Perfect. “I’m sorry,” Grant says. “I don’t mean to be so overbearing, but you have to remember that as much as I love you, you’re not a favorite with everyone at the Bureau.” “Give me time,” I say. “I’m only one woman. It might take me a few years, but I’ll get there.” His lips twitch. “Penelope…” “And it’s not as if he said or did anything bad,” I add, eager to leverage that oh-so-promising break in his exterior. “We mostly talked about you. He seemed nice.” “That man is not nice. I don’t want you to have anything to […]


Urban Enemies

Urban Enemies

Posted August 3, 2017 by Anne in Book Review | 2 Comments

            The anthology includes seventeen short stories from many authors which I have mentioned in the order within Urban Enemies.  I have read only five of these authors but they are some of my favorites so I was excited. After all, reading an anthology like this, which was edited by a mystery author, was what took me out of over ten years of reading only mysteries. It turned out to be more science fiction, paranormal romance and urban fantasy stories. I enjoyed many of the stories even though I had read none of the authors before and three series I started on immediately from it were Keri Arthur’s Riley Jensen series, Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries and Carrie Vaughn’s Kitty Norville books.

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

I have a weakness for romances with friends-to-lovers and Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon hit the spot! Eye Candy is about two best friends, Jackie and Vince. They share titles as vice-president at a marketing firm, they share pizza, beer and movie nights. They also share the fact they both are divorced and are gun shy about getting back into the dating world. Vince has done the “guy thing” and had a few one-night stands over the years to get over his ex-wife, but he is ready for more with his BFF, Jackie. She on the other hand has dragged her feet in the dating world and he doesn’t want to be her rebound. Vince comes up with a plan to get Jackie out there […]

                 Oh. Oh. I just got caught up. I was only one book behind, so I read The Staff and the Blade.  And I’m so glad I did. Damien and Sari have such a long and winding road. It is a very lengthy book and yet it doesn’t seem like enough. This Irin Chronicles series has morphed from urban fantasy, with the first three books all being Ava / Malachi, into more of a paranormal romance with a different couple in each book. It is a great having the overall story arc of the world continue and getting to have more depth on characters which supported earlier stories. Please do not read this series out of order. OMG. I […]

Jennifer Snow’s 10 Reasons Why Sexy Scenes are Best!

  Is That a Gun in your Pocket? Nope, it’s a Hard-On: 10 Reasons Why Sexy Scenes are Best! Reason 1: Most hot guys don’t carry guns, but EVERY hot guy has a penis. However, bonus points goes to Police Officer/Military type Heroes who have both! Reason 2: In sexy scenes, our super hunky hero is naked. Enough said. Reason 3: After reading an action scene, readers may want to cuddle with their significant others for protection, but after reading a sexy scene, significant others get laid. Don’t believe me? There was a major baby boom about 10 months after the release of Fifty Shades of Grey.  (Okay, so not an actual fact…might be worth a Google;)) Reason 4: In sexy scenes, readers can be […]
