Introduction and June's Book of the Month

Hello fellow book clubers.  Some of you may have noticed that our little blog has not be updated since April.  Bels has tried to keep the blog current but with her new business and such she has been unable to.  So, she gave me a call and asked if I would help her out and take over this here blog.  My name is the Happiness Fairy (you can call me Happ for short) and I am honored to now be the Big Blog Honcho here.  For June we are only going to have one book rather than the series and the books of an indy author. This is so I can get a hang of this blog thing.  I've never blogged in my fairy dusting life so please bear with me as I ride the blogging learning curve.

Now, for the really important stuff.  June's book is Loving on Borrowed Time by Olivia Cunning, best selling author of Backstage Pass and Rock Hard from the Sinners on Tour Series.  This is her first self published book so I am sprinkling her with lots o'happy dust and wishing her the best!

Lara Kensington is living a perfectly mundane life as a museum curator, when bad boy treasure hunter, Reece Jerhico, leaps into her life. Literally. Obviously distressed, Reece tells Lara that one year in the future she will be murdered. The evidence he uses to back up his incredible story doesn’t convince Lara. She thinks he’s crazy. Especially after he claims to be her future fiancé. Lara would have remembered dating someone as delicious as Reece Jerhico. Hot as Reece is, Lara has a difficult time believing anything the man says until the broken amulet he wears around his neck transports them into different bodies, during a different time, in a different place--an ancient place, a cold place, a place where Lara arrives naked, hysterical, and... Norse.

On the run through time, attempting to escape a man who is hell-bent on Lara’s lack-of a-future becoming a reality, the couple must leap from one time and place to another just to stay alive. In the first volume of this sexy and humorous new series, Lara and Reece share an existence with a ruthless Viking and his captive bride and then with a noble medieval knight and the feisty lady he is determined to win.
ENJOY!!!

With enough trouble controlling her powers—the added rivalry between the two tough Guardians leaves Nexi in urgent demand of a fire extinguisher. But when tragedy strikes the very core of the Otherworld, Nexi needs to shape up as she lands herself knee deep into vampire society—a world run by vampire Mistresses who offer their assistance in unearthing a deadly plot of revenge.

About Stacey

I love the paranormal romance/urban fantasy genre and love a series more!! Nothing can hook me in more than an adventure and one that keeps on going. I love a page turner, one where I’m up at a ridiculous time and my eyes burn because I can’t stop reading. Witty characters, dominant men, danger, action, romance and hot sex―oh my! My novels are lighthearted fantasy, heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again.  I’m not a planner.  I don’t write with a set idea because no matter what I plan, the characters’ voices always come through and demand I listen to them. So, I gave up trying to fight it!
