It's been a few days. I've been absolutely captivated by a wonderful book that I just finished reading. I simply couldn't put it down.
If you are fan of Vampire romances, or author's Lynsay Sands, Katie MacAllister, Christine Feehan or Laurell K. Hamilton, then this book should appeal to you. How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks. This authors quirky humor is a unique voice and lends itself to a wonderful world where vampires have a few new toys in their bag of tricks. The romance between the two main characters is HOT and yummy. Her world building is such that you know there are more books coming...and you end up looking forward to them. I know I do. I already emailed the author. You should check out her website it's adorable! http://kerrelynsparks.com/index.html
There's even an excerpt to read. With every book , there's always the hard fact of the "but" factor. I mostly liked the female lead, Shanna Whelan. I mean she puts up with a lot of shocks to her system and all, but I think she was written with a few too many tear scenes. Most worked actually...but there were a few spots where I just felt, less tears and more ... something stiffer, more - I don't know... reaction with action... Fortunately there were not too many of THOSE moments., so the story doesn't lose it's momentum. I LOVE the fact that she's a dentist and if you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I once had an idea of an
"Evil dentist who preys on Vampires" and I questioned what would happen to the vampire without his teeth. Guess what???? This book solves the riddle....Boy was I surprised to see that in there!!!! I liked this book a lot, I recommend it for an Awesome summer read and I hope you check it out.
NOW, Time to excercise your smile muscle again. This was sent via email to me by another good friend who knows that smiling is a "favorite thing".

...................... SENIOR DRESS CODE
Many of us "Old Folks" (those over 60, WAY over 60, or hovering near 60) are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashions. Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:
1. A nose ring and bifocals
2. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedo's and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
10. Bikinis and liver spots
11. Short shorts and varicose veins
12. Inline skates and a walker
And last, but not least . my personal favorite:
13. Thongs and Depends
Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.
