Bear with me a moment…. A few weeks ago I went back to my hometown to visit my parents. As I drove to my childhood home, I couldn’t help but see the memorial on the side of road, literally one mile from the house. It’s where a few months […]

But trust me when I say that once the blood starting hitting the walls, I was ALL IN!!!!
White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout is out today and I say RUN and grab it if you love urban fantasy, YA, romance, gargoyles, and demons sprinkled with some zombie-like wraiths…
