Growing up for girls can be a tough experience, with many conflicting voices giving advice on life coaching and living an authentic life. Luckily, this optimistic guide for teen girls coming of age provides everything about women and self-esteem to help break through the teenage drama and become your own personal goddess.


Dealing with every sort of teenage drama, from eating disorders to boyfriends, Sofia Kyriacou presents a new style of life coaching aimed at turning teen girls into women and self-esteem plays a large role in this. Peppered with her own experiences of coming of age, she manages to meld together the best bits of differing philosophies in order to create a manual of growing up for girls which will one day see them living an authentic life filled with health and happiness.


“It gives good sound advice and I think young girls need as much advice, help and support they can get these days. Reading another young girls point of view will perhaps be more taken on board than listening to an adult!” Gine Gee, Amazon UK. 

“Every girl needs this book in their life! Seriously opened my eyes to things on a new perspective!” Celine Klein, Amazon UK.

“Wow amazing inspirational must read.” Caroline K, Amazon UK.

Magna Blade Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin



I loved this razor. NO nicks or cuts left my legs feeling smooth. I was in love until it feel out of it’s holder and broke. Now I am trying to search on getting some blades the handle still works but I need more blades. It comes with one.

Magna Blade is a patented device which can be found online at Getmoreshaves.com. It is a unique product which extends the performance life of the razor blade edge by a factor of 2 x 6 times normal expectations. This is accomplished by the exposure of the razor blasde to the magnetic energy field imbedded in Magna Blade which projects a “reverse polarization energy field ” to accomplish this outcome. The product has no batteries, or moving parts and last for at least a decade. This product includes a handsome chrome handle designer quality razor with a high quality five blade head. Magna Blade is currently available in Island Coral and Fforest Green.

Note from the Author for post–

Hey guys!

Thank you so much for stopping by today to check out my debut novel, Choosing Evil! This

baby was a labor of love, for sure. And, its tagline, ‘Embrace Your Inner Demon’ has already

raised some eyebrows around my small beach town (oops!).

Well, if you’re into the paranormal like I am, it won’t shock you to know the demons in Choosing

Evil are not only sexy and bad-ass, but full of emotional baggage and human appeal.

While Choosing Evil is Serafina’s story, her love interest, Damon is a giant part of it. If you like

what you read, get ready for the sequel, Breaking Evil, which I’m hoping to release in 2015.

Both books are part of The Ensouled Trilogy, which not only pits good against evil, but makes

each character, and reader, question what evil really means to them.

I hope you have fun today getting introduced to Choosing Evil, and me! Don’t forget to find me

on social media and, of course, sign up for my giveaways below :)

Thank you again for helping me celebrate Choosing Evil’s release!

Compulsive Fascinations by N. Isabelle Blanco Release Day blitz


He owns her—Every. Single. Breath. She just doesn’t want to admit it. To him, or herself. . .
You get hurt once; you assume that’s the norm. You see others suffer; you assume that’s the norm, too. 


At least, that’s what Livana once did. One rough go-around was enough for her. After that, she kept it simple, no strings attached. It was just easier that way. Even necessary. 



Until she went out one night and met Calum Alexander, a man whose intensity broke through each of her defenses, leaving her vulnerable. 



Afraid to fall in love, she tries to keep some of her walls up around herself, even though Calum is determined not to let her. 



Faced with a man that seems intent on possessing her, Liv knows it’s a mere matter of time before she no longer has a choice.



That is. . .until Calum’s own insecurities come to the fore, throwing their new, fragile relationship into a tailspin. 



Will the feelings between them be strong enough to keep them together, or will their issues get in the way of what they had just started to build?


It occurred to me that we never
really had angry sex before.


It was about to happen.
Right now.
Leaning down, he slanted his mouth
over mine. I took it, opening my mouth for the aggressive thrust of his tongue.
Our tongues tangled, breaths mingling. He kissed me with slow, hard laps,
making his message clear.
He owned my body.
He knew it.
Did he think that gave him the right
to hug his ex in front of me and that I’d have no say about it?
Hurt, I bit down on his lip.
Not breaking our kiss, he groaned
and sucked on my tongue. His fingers tightened around my nipples. That hint of
pain again.
Each sting merged with the
sensations his tongue evoked, until I was drugged. Couldn’t think about
anything but him coming inside me.
Letting go of his wrists, I fisted
his lapels. “God, just fuck me already. Please.” My tone was incoherent. Needy.
He wrenched my head back with a fist
in my hair, attacking my neck with his tongue and teeth. “You want me to fuck you?” He gave me a harsh bite
that made me yelp.
It wasn’t lost on what his words
truly meant. “Yes. You.” Gasping for breath, I pressed as close to him as
possible. “Always you.”
He didn’t deserve that, but I had no
choice but to give it to him.
A guttural sound left him. His hands
came down on my ass, lifting me up against him. “I’ll give it to you. Every
single, God damned thing.”
Christ, please tell me that meant
what I thought it meant.
Bending at the knee, he scooped me
up into his arms.
I’d become so lightheaded with want
that it took me a few seconds to find my voice. When I finally did, it sounded
raspier than I’d ever heard it. “Where are we going?”
The look in his eyes somehow turned
I couldn’t focus on the beautiful
garden around us, or what direction he stormed in.
It was all about him. That austere
expression, the hardened brow. His golden eyes fixated ahead and burning with that violent energy.
Oh, God. I loved him. I truly did.
So fucking much, and suddenly, I couldn’t breathe through the emotion—could
barely contain the words inside me.
Calum raced up another short flight
of steps and lowered me down to my unsteady feet. He reached into his coat
pocket for that passkey again and stepped up to me.
His free hand met my pussy through
my dress, palming it, the action possessive. “We’re going somewhere private.
You’re mine. No one sees you come but me.”

About the Author
N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life. 

An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.

N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.

Interview with Rachel Brimble

Interview with Rachel Brimble

Cover 1

Babs….When did you know you wanted to write?

I was very young…as in nine or ten…but I didn’t start a serious intent toward publication until 2005 when I was thirty-one. School, getting a ‘real job’ and two babies came first, but once the youngest started school full-time, I had my ‘now or never’ moment!


Babs…..What would you like your readers to get out of Christmas At The Cove?

Pure festive enjoyment and a sense of contentment – the book is set in my fictional UK seaside town of Templeton Cove and is the fourth in my Harlequin Superromance series (although the books can be read stand-alone), so I wanted to explore the Cove around the holidays. The story is full of emotion, family, children and fighting for true love against the odds.


Babs…..Do you have a current project in the works?

Always! I am currently working on the first draft of my fourth Victorian romance with eKensington. This is Jane’s and Matthew’s story who were secondary characters in book three, What A Woman Desires, coming in Jan 2015. The writing is going well so far…long may it last!


Babs…..Do you have a ritual when you are writing? ie coffee, music, food etc

Not a ritual as such but I do start each working day with my much needed cup of coffee – I treat my writing as full time work so it’s a case of keeping my butt in the chair from 8.30-5.30, five days a week.


Babs…..Hobbies outside of writing?

I love to knit, walk the English countryside with my family and dog, or watch far too much TV. My favorite shows are US drama series, British period dramas or documentaries on the British monarchy.


Babs….What book or books are you currently reading?

I am currently reading The Yard by Alex Grecian which is a fabulous, if sometimes gory, crime novel set in Victorian London, a year after the notorious Ripper murders. SO good! I have already bought Grecian’s backlist (don’t tell Mr. B!). On my kindle, I have just started Mary Mark’s Forget Me Knot – a cozy mystery. I love Mary’s style and characters already, brilliant! As you can see I am on a ‘crime’ reading mission right now, but sproadically flit from ‘romance’ to ‘history’ missions too.


Babs….If you could be one character from one of your books who would it be?

I would love to be Cat Forrester/Garrett from my Templeton Cove series – she is the Detective Inspector of the town and features in almost all the books. She is feisty, sexy and can quietly bring down any offender. Love her!


Babs…Favorite drink?

Day – coffee or water


Evening – chilled white wine


Babs…..What is your favorite ice cream?

Mint choc-chip or coconut


Babs….What is your favorite food?

Chicken Satay


Babs…Anything else you would like to add?

More family for Christmas?

Scott Walker doesn’t have time for a relationship. The sexy mechanic has career

ambitions, not to mention a mother and three sisters to take care of. The last thing he

needs is Carrie Jameson, the beauty he never forgot, arriving in Templeton Cove over

the holidays with some unexpected news.

Scott still finds Carrie irresistible, and he’s not one to shirk responsibility. Scott’s

issues with his own dad make the prospect of parenthood a minefield. But if he and

Carrie can overcome their fears, this Christmas could bring them the best gift of all.

Cranberries & Spice Thanksgiving #Bloghop ~ Erotic Romance

Welcome to my stop of the blog hop.


For my stop I have the pleasure of having a few erotica authors from Musa Publishing offering up their ebooks for giveaways. I have also asked Brita Addams for a quick post.

Giveaway is at the bottom

Erotica vs Porn

All too often, erotica is mistakenly described in reviews as porn. There are vast differences. Since I wrote my first book, I’ve explored the subject.

In my reader experience, erotica comes in different stripes, while a common theme is explicit and abundant sex. Some are centered around the sexual experience for the characters, while other stories are both character or story driven, supported by how the sexual activity impacts their lives.

Porn, however, is strictly about the sex and any story that might be present loosely connects the sex scenes.

While all have their audiences, Musa Publishing’s Eros line focuses on bringing readers high quality erotica.

As a reader, I love well-written, character-driven erotic romance and erotica. I’ve read more than my share of historical erotic romance, which is my particular reading of choice. I love plot, characters, and an engrossing story, along with hot sex.

I don’t, however, read books that simply detail a jumble of body parts finding their counterparts and humping, sucking or well, you get the idea. There is no story, no plot, no characters, save the handsome, well-hung, long-haired, tattooed guy and the eager-to-please, not the least bit surprised when he’s climbs through her kitchen window – chippy, who seems to understand the look in his eyes the moment she sees him.

She opens her mouth, the scene goes to black, and the next thing you know, they’re hanging from the foyer chandelier, banging away for a time well past human endurance. Fast forward, because frankly, all that banging away looks the same after awhile, and low and behold, the next vignette is exactly the same, save for a different well-hung, long-haired tattooed guy and yet another eager-to-please, not the least bit surprised that he’s climbed through her kitchen window, chippy.

I’m proud that my historical erotica Sapphire Club series has found a home in the Musa Eros line. I join wonderful authors who pour their hearts and souls into the stories they write.

I invite everyone to study the offerings in the Eros line on the Musa website. If you love erotica, you will want to scoop up every book in this line. Get to know all the authors’ work and I guarantee you’ll be glad you did.

Musa’s Eros Line produces wonderful stories for every reading taste. Down and gritty or full stories, Eros has it all.

 About Brita Addams:

Born in a small town in upstate New York, Brita Addams has made her home in the sultry south for many years. In the Frog Capital of the World, Brita shares her home with her real-life hero—her husband, and a fat cat named Stormee. All their children are grown.

Given her love of history, Brita writes both het and gay historical romance. Many of her historicals have appeared on category bestseller lists at various online retailers.

Musa Publishing publishes Brita’s heterosexual historical romances, including the rewritten and expanded, best-selling Sapphire Club series, each with new titles. Again, each of the titles have again hit the best-selling lists at various online vendors.

Tarnished Gold, the first in her gay romance Tarnished series for Dreamspinner Press, was a winner in the 2013 Rainbow Awards, Historical Romance category. The book also received nominations for Best Historical and Best Book of 2013 from the readers of the Goodreads M/M Romance Group.

A bit of trivia—Brita pronounces her name, Bree-ta, and not Brit-a, like the famous water filter. Brita Addams is a mash-up of her real middle name and her husband’s middle name, with an additional d and s.

Readers can find more information about Brita Addams at any of the following places:

Cranberry Bluff book Blitz/tour

Cranberry Bluff

Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner

Molly Elliott’s quiet life in Tallahassee, Florida, is disrupted when routine errands land her in the wrong place at the wrong time: the middle of a bank robbery. Accused and cleared of the crime, she flees both media attention and mysterious, threatening notes, to move across the country to Cranberry Cove, where she has inherited her Aunt Maggie’s bed and breakfast on the Northern California coast. Her new beginning is peaceful – that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.

Mix together one blushing honeymoon couple, one flamboyant boutique owner, a deadpan traveling salesman, and a charmingly handsome novelist, and there’s more than scones cooking at Cranberry Cottage Bed and Breakfast. As true motives become apparent, will Molly’s past come back to haunt her or will she finally be able to leave it behind?



Author Deborah Garner

Deborah Garner is an accomplished travel writer with a passion for back roads and secret hideaways. Born and raised in California, she studied in France before returning to the U.S. to attend UCLA. After stints in graduate school and teaching, she attempted to clone herself for decades by founding and running a dance and performing arts center, designing and manufacturing clothing and accessories, and tackling both spreadsheets and display racks for corporate retail management. Her passions include photography, hiking and animal rescue. She speaks five languages, some substantially better than others. She now divides her time between California and Wyoming, dragging one human and two canines along whenever possible.
