Boulevard Bellini

Has anyone bought a Magic Bullet Blender yet? I just got one, haven't tried it yet, but I found a recipe on their site that looked pretty tasty. Here's what it says...

A unique frozen version of the snazzy, upscale Bellini cocktail. A delicious blend of fruity flavor that's tasty without being sweet. A perfect cocktail for brunches and luncheons, or poolside, or breakfast, or anytime! (Breakfast?!!! ha ha)

frozen peaches
2 shots champagne
2 shots peach schnapps
1 shot lemon-lime soda
1 tsp. sugarPreparation

First ...Fill a Party Mug or Tall Cup halfway up with ice and add frozen peaches to fill the cup.

Then...Pour in all of the liquid ingredients.

And ... Blend until smooth.

I don't know about breakfast,but it sure sounds like a tantillizing afternoon drink! I could use one of these tonight!

Dark Tales Reviews

Look what Lyda at Bitten By Books had to say about Dark Tales 1: Vampyress...

What is a vampire supposed to do, when she’s stuck in a bar in the middle of a raging storm with no electricity? Especially when she is stuck with humans who have no clue how they are going to pass the time. Storytelling! Someone actually suggests they all share a story to make the time fly by and Vampyress Ivona Knight has been nominated to share the first tale.

So she decides to tell them the true story of how she fell into the darkness. And the silly humans, they cannot seem to tell whether she is telling the truth or simply just trying to scare them. All except one -the one human who shares a remarkable resemblance to her past and only love Dragomir. Lucian is his name, and he is one hundred percent certain Ivona is telling the truth. And even though he is scared to death, he finds himself unable to move, enthralled by her story, he has to hear her tell the rest. Then maybe he could share his own tale.

Vampyress is absolutely captivating. It is truly reminiscent of campfire stories with an audience simply eager to hear more. The story is simply evocative as if I was personally in the setting hearing Ivona tell her tale that I was actually sorry and disappointed when she finished. I ate up every word and personally am anxious to read its sequel.

Greenwood Manor Review...

Look what Megan at Bitten By Books had to say about Greenwood Manor...

Laura Flannery is a 35 year old woman who needs a vacation, yesterday. She is working at a dead end job, has an old bitty that lives next door and always wants to know her business. If that is not enough, when Laura gets a vacation her neighbor asks if she can feed her five cats. When a post card comes in the mail for a new bed and breakfast, Laura decides to go on a little vacation of her own.

Barnabas is the owner of Greenwood Manor but stays out of sight at first. His butler William and cook Rosie get her settled in. When Barnabas does meet her face to face, he tells her that he is her husband. By the way, he is also dead.

Her stay begins with a taxi driver that cannot wait to get away from her and the house. Strange things keep happening at the old manor such as hearing voices in her head and people floating instead of walking. Laura thinks that she has gone nuts because the alternative is too scary.

This book had me giggling and getting misty all at the same time. Shannon Leigh knows how to get the emotions out of her characters and bring them to life on paper. The love scenes are on the spicy side but done in a way that shows the special connection between Laura and Barnabas. Greenwood Manor is a book that I would recommend to all my friends.

Erotikos Review...

Look what Megan at Bitten By Books had to say about Erotikos...

This was a combination of three books in one with three friends who get together for a girls night in. It consists of getting drunk, playing board games and a possible movie. Renee, Candi and Mina are all completely different but are great friends who do not spend enough time together.

Mina brings over a new board game to play that she found. It says that it can bring you adventure in sex for either one or multiple players. The rules are that each woman picks a pewter man of her choice. They have a choice of a vampire, construction worker and a business man plus five others. After reading the directions, they roll the dice to start their own sexual fantasy.

Each woman had her story and a certain man of her choice so there was a variety. The men that were chosen were perfect for each woman and I have to say that I would have picked them all. Hey, I can dream can’t I? Shannon Leigh has been added to my automatic buy list. The sex scenes are very explicit in Erotikos.

Chasing Booty Review

Look What Amy at Bitten By Books had to say about Chasing Booty...
What a thrilling ride! Ms. Leigh brings us a different kind of intergalactic tale with steamy hot sex in this story. Gaelyn and Reese have been attracted to each other forever, yet both refuse to give in and pursue their lust and desire. They are equally stubborn, but when they connect, their chemistry goes way beyond explosive. Both are bounty hunters and they end up chasing after the same bounty. But when the bounty is the one doing the chasing, they both need to work together and overcome their past issues.
This is an enjoyable book with tons of sex scenes, in bedrooms, in caves, pretty much everywhere that they can. With lots of suspense and action, Chasing Booty will surely keep you at the edge of your seat. This is definitely a must read to those who love a short tale with lots of suspense and thrills.
Rating: 4 Tombstones!
