Hey, guys. I’ve got a thing for people looking for a good fantasy romance book. The lovely P.J. Rogers has released her first full novel, for $2.99 on Amazon’s kindle. It’s definitely worth a read.

The rolling fields of Whitekeep are green and the scent of spring is in the air. It’s the time of year when the world wakes anew, planting begins, the flowers bloom. The time of year when thoughts turn to love and marriage.
At least, they should for Sebastian Dunn, Prince of Whitekeep.
He’s the most eligible bachelor in all the Dales, but he’s not looking at settling down. Instead, the Prince is working to rebuild his kingdom in the aftermath of a brutal coup. His lands left fallow, his people starving, Sebastian has worked these last few years to turn his kingdom around. This year will be his year, and Whitekeep will flourish again if the harvest holds.
Besides, there’s only one woman in his thoughts — Celeste Clarke, both lovely and forbidden. With her history as a feared and hated mage, she would never be accepted by his nobles. What’s more, she disappeared four years ago after her mother’s murder.
When he finds her near his hunting lodge, wounded and tired, he spirits her away to his castle. Sebastian has the woman he’s sought for years in his home at last. Celeste doesn’t seem convinced — she’s not here to be his mistress. If he lets her go now, she’ll slip through his fingers.
He’ll have her, or no one at all — if only she’ll give him the second chance.

Followers should definitely give it a borrow, take a look, leave reviews. Let’s feed this new Indie author! :) I’ve already got my copy.

So. I sat down and finished my copy of Fit for Royalty last night. Oh my god. I haven’t had a story hangover that good in awhile. I got to the end and wanted more. I wanted to know what was going to happen next for Celeste and Sebastian. The prose was beautiful, it was hot, it was just wonderful.

First novel, and it’s fantastic. Seriously, solid gold. 5 stars.

Prince of the Aureum Isles, Constable of the Royal Army, and Knight of the Benesian Order. A seasoned soldier and a talented marksman, he is known for his prowess in multiple forms of combat. As a renowned war hero, he fights with his life for the kingdom and for the people but just how far is he willing to sacrifice if the people are calling for blood - his brother’s blood.

You’re restless the moment you step foot into your lodging, even though it’s fit for royalty. It’s impossible to sleep despite how soft the linens are and how comfortable the pillows are under your head. Jongdae’s words are echoing in your brain, and the fact that you had to wait till daybreak to start the search for a member of the court was too much. They couldn’t waste time, if this was London, then that boy could be dead by now.

Underland is twice as terrifying, so why are you all just waiting?

Moving from casual wear to formal wear (and with it to some new scenes, cos screencapping that same scene over and over turned out to get old really quickly).

“The Winter Palace” – “A classic, formal cut. Crimson accented with royal blue. Fit to meet royalty.”

I loved this on Adi (and Cullen and Dorian mmmm) when we saw it at Halamshiral, and I still like it now. Somehow I doubt Adi’s going to want to wear any of the formal outfits but they do look quite nice on her.

Pampered Dogs Live in a $20,000 Victorian Mansion

External image

Nothing says “I love my puppies to death” like spending a ton of cash on a small Victorian mansion, the pooches can call home.

Chelsea, Darla and Coco Puff can definitely brag to their barking friends, about having the most luxurious doghouse in the world. Featuring hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, central heating and air-conditioning, this mini-mansion is literally fit for royalty. In terms of design, it has hand-made curtains, mini blinds, expensive wallpaper and ceiling fans.

And they all have to thank their owner, 42-year-old Tammy Kassis, who lavishly spent around $20,000 on this over-the-top dog mansion. She loves her two Yorkies and one Pomeranian to death, and she decided to give them a home of their own, when an owl almost snatched one of them up.

She asked deluxe kennel builder, and owner of La Petite Maison, Alan Mower, to create a small replica of her own home, a beautiful Victorian mansion, for her adorable fur balls. Next on her shopping list is a small plasma TV, because the spoiled trio loves to watch Animal Planet.
