No Prince Charming

What little girl has not dreamed of finding her Prince Charming...... ????? Well what would happen if both Prince Charming and his Cinderella found a chance at happiness over 300 years after they had first found ...... and lost each other. Taking a famous and frequently abused fairy tale and putting her imaginative spin on it, Shiloh Walker has once again found gold. Joining her first Grimm tale Candy Houses is the latest in the Samhain publishing novella series No Prince Charming which releases next Tues Jan 26 2010. This book was amazing.... sexy Grimms (guardian angels), demonic succubi and a love triangle that has the players finding lost love in a sex club. I won the chance to read this book a few days prior to publication and will be tweeting some cool blurbs from the book on Mon and Tues for Shiloh. Watch for the hockeyvampiress tweets to find out more but for now here is a little treat for my followers......

Another memory that didn't fade ? The Memory of the pain in her eyes the day she realized who he was. Her stepsister's fiance.

Watching her walk away had been the hardest thing he'd ever done in his life. To that point.

Since then, his life had been a study of hard lessons. Watching as another man touched this woman was just the latest lesson.

Living a long, empty life without her. Watching her tuwn away from him. Running after her only to find her too late. By the time he'd caught up with her she was forever out of his reach--unless he made a choice.

"The day will come when she will need you. The day will come when she will die without you. But it will not be easy. You will spend a great many years alone..... you may die saving her and even if you don;t, she may never forgive you. What do you for her? Or would you rather die?"

That was the choice he'd been given all those years ago by a strange white haired man who went by the name of Will.

"How can she ever need me again? She is dead. I have failed her." " Things are rarely as they seem. The woman you love is not dead."

Michael closed his eyes, banishing the memories. He couldn't think of the night he'd come face-to-face with Will. Couldn't think about how he had plunged a knife into his own chest either...........

See what I mean..... who wants more of this Prince.... more of his beloved Elle???? Tuesday is your chance to find out more about this pair, how they came to be together and how they survived for over 300 years without contact only to be brought back together to thwart an evil demon.....

Later S.

What would you do....

Hey everyone.... Happy New Year!!!

Got to say that I am very very glad that 2009 is over. A new decade... hopefully a new break for my family in the financial, health and stability situation. Actually ever since my car accident in Nov of 08 my life has taken a tale spin and I can only hope that I can find a way to change that for the good in this fresh new year. My health probs though are prob not going to change... according to my doctor last time I talked to him I would have shoulder probs my whole life and now my knee is acting up.... OK has been acting up for the last 6 months... got to go in soon and see if there is anything they can do for it... tired of braces and pain....
Anyway.... lets talk about something fun today.... A blast from the past was handed to me today at work. A friend that I used to be a penpal with when I was 14 brought in an old letter that I wrote her back in had a very naughty recipe for Banana Bread... ingredients included 2 laughing eyes, one large banana, a fur lined bowl.... well I think you get the idea.... anyway the fact that she kept this letter was mind boggling since we never really hung out to much, she was my neighbours that I babysat fors kid sister, but wrote letters maybe once a month to each other.... On the other side was the letter itself and I killed myself laughing at it almost as much as the banana bread because I was telling her how I got sent a autographed picture of Peter Barton and she needed to come see it when she came down next time. Can anyone remember Peter Barton???? I also loved Shaun Cassidy.... he was my fave... got an autographed pic of him too..... sent him christmas ornament one year made of sugar...??? LOL

Speaking of sending things to people you idolize.... tonight I entered another contest to win an arc of Broken by Shiloh Walker. Shiloh is one of may absolutely fave authors. I have most of her books available in print and would love to get an arc of one of her books to add to my collection. I did manage to get an e arc of her last work Hunters Need but it isn't quite the same for a print collector like me.... I have offered to bring her a bottle of ice wine to the RT convention next April which is the week before my birthday. I still have hopes to attend and have half the money saved from the sales of my book thongs to pay for my registration. So if anyone else wants to order some and help me out I would love you forever. Anyway.... back to the arc of Broken... if anyone else wants to help me out by giving me an idea of how to get on Shiloh's good girls list let me know.... I am going to be doing a review here, possibly BBB or Beautiful Reads, amazon, facebook book review and wherever else I can get the word out.

So finishing tonight with my other love.... hockey.... we had a very sad young man go to bed with tears in his eyes after tonights loss to US in the gold medal game of the World Junior Hockey tournament. Every year the finals are on my youngest sons birthday and this is the only hockey that he ever really enjoys.... wants to watch and even dresses up for. He does not participate in sports like my other boys and when he can actually join in on the fun and excitement of the game we all love it is really great. When asked by anyone who his favorite team is he always says Canada. I must say though that except for the one sided officiating in the first half of the game, it was a very good game to watch. The US boys outskated ours and were very fast on the puck. We had some great chances and the Campell boy was amazing in net saving the game more than once in the last few minutes of the game.
In my own hockey watching.... my boys in blue and gold are still playing great.... they have their off nights but all in all they are playing fantastic. Congrats to my fave Ryan Miller for making the US Olympic team.... good for you.... your efforts will take them further in the game in Feb. My sons team has yet to win a game in regular play... they have struggled off and on all year, have tied some of the top teams but have failed to put a W on the page.... But on the other hand in tournament play they are 5-3-2 and 2 of the losses were only 1 goal games.... so heading to Buffalo in a couple weeks we are optimistic that they will do well there too. The only problem..... we are going to Buffalo when my beloved Sabres are on a west coast swing and they will not be any home games for me to attend with my son who loves the SAbres too....

Well going to sound off for the night.... thanks for visiting.... keep your fingers crossed for my win of a Shiloh Walker arc, for the boys to win in Buffalo and for the snow to stop falling.... LOL

Later..... Shell
