Oh, You've GOT to read this one!
This is the cover to the book. I've read one story of Ms. Popp's before and I remember enjoying it. So, when I saw her name, the Cover AND the back blurb...well, buying it was a given.
OUT OF THE NIGHT - by Robin T. Popp
If you enjoy paranormal romance, or- forget the romance, just like paranormal...this one delivers. The link takes you to Amazon.com reviews. I can't say it any better. Most gave it 5 stars!!!! I would too. I just love the originality of it.
If you think you've seen all there is to be seen with regards to vampire romances.....think again..READ this and THEN you'll be up to date with the genre. I've not seen this creature mentioned in any books...Gargoyles, yes, but not what Ms. Popp writes of. And I enjoyed how she worked it into the story. Pure genius.
When you read it...you notice I said "when", let me know what YOU think. I'm itchin' to know.
Before I continue with the next book that I finished in 18 hours...
I would like to share a picture of incongruity that I found on the net. What do I mean? First, the Definition:
Incongruous: adj: not consistent with or suitable to the surroundings or associations: not harmonious, appropriate, or proper.
Second, the Example:
Or, A joke for the truly tasteless, i.e. not appropriate:
To prepare for his big date, a young man went to the rooftop of his apartment to work on his tan. Not wanting any tan lines, he sunbathed in the nude but fell asleep and burned his penis.Not wanting to miss out on his date with the hot blonde, he applied some ointment to his manhood and wrapped it in gauze.
The blonde showed up at his apartment, and after dinner they went into the living room to watch a movie.During the movie, the young man's sunburn began to hurt. After several minutes of extreme discomfort, he asked to be excused.
A friend had told him that milk was very effective in reducing sunburn pain. So he went to the kitchen, poured a tall glass of cold milk, and placed his sunburned member into the milk. He experienced immediate relief.The blonde, wondering what the young man was doing, wandered into the kitchen and found him with his shaft fully immersed in the glass of milk.
With a look of understanding the blonde exclaimed, "So that's how you load those things!" --
Now back to my second good read:
I want to mention a well known and beloved author of wonderful Scottish Highland alpha males. Her name is Karen Marie Moning. Her most recent visit to those wonderful Kelter Druids is SPELL OF THE HIGHLANDER. click on name for ratings from Amazon.
I could not put this book down. Of course, I couldn't put ANY of the books in the series down until I'd read them cover to cover. She is such a talented writer.
If you've read it, what's your favorite part?
As I'm sure you are aware, Hurricane Rita is about to wreck a swath of flooding and damage like Katrina. I have a friend in Louisiana that lived in an area of the state untouched by Katrina. Not so with Rita. She emailed me this morning.
And what she said has me very worried for her and her family.
Rita is expected to slam us. Listen to your news this weekend. If you hear anything about East Texas, Ark-La-Tex, I-20, and Shreveport areas, that is us. Hurricane Rita is expected to stall over us for 3 days dumping 25-30 inches of rain. We are a little scared. They have not talked about evacuating yet. But where would we go, anyways? Everyone from Texas and down from New Orleans are in our shelters......."
......" This maybe the last e-mail probably until Tuesday. ...."
So, please keep my friend, her family and ALL folks about to be affected by another punch from mother nature, in your thoughts......
Until Tuesday comes...I won't know about my own friend.
What a humbling feeling.....
Truthfully? Worrying sucks.
