Fictional Candy has only been around for 3 months! But blogger Liz has done an amazing job of getting started. Along with her kindle and voracious appetite for books she turned to the internet and discovered the world of book blogging! She turned her blog about her road to becoming smoke free (and she still is! Congrats on that) into a book blog. She has a full time job and a preschooler! and reading/blogging is her therapy <G>. She also made the mistake of letting me know she can do a little bit of code (which I do none of!) she made the little Sheep Share button we now have on our site.
Thanks for all the code advice and for finding time to read and blog...Liz, you ROCK!

Dead Or a Lie by Jason Barret
A sun allergy predisposes Lee Teadora to a solitary existence as the night security director of New York Medical. Endless nights watching uneventful images on her security monitors make her desperate for excitement. Be careful of what you wish for... One night, while visiting her father's grave, a group of bloodthirsty vampires attack her. Despite her martial arts training, she is outmatched. She should be dead...or undead, but she survives. Lee isn't alone in her battle. A shadowy figure watches from afar...protecting her.


The Legend of Michael: Sin and Satisfaction by Lisa Renee Jones
HE IS A LETHAL WEAPON...
One of an army of human soldiers injected with alien DNA, Michael is a legend within this new race, split between good and evil. Untamable, he has walked on the dark side and returned to the light. Feared and misunderstood, he leaves everything behind, including the one woman destined to be his mate.
HE IS HER ENEMY...AND HER DESTINY...
Cassandra holds the key to Michael's power, and his pain. With loyalties divided and against insurmountable odds, Cassandra's heart propels her to Michael's side-but can her love do anything but destroy him...
No ordinary woman can control a creature such as Michael, and only one thing is clear-the world will never be the same...


Changeling Dream by Dani Harper
In times of stress Jillian Descharme has always found calm in her dream of a great white wolf with haunting blue eyes. But she is startled when the visions return and this time seem so real. Late at night he comes to her, speaks to her, touches her. It's almost as if he's alive...
Thirty years ago James Macleod lost his wife and unborn child to a killer bent on destroying the Changelings. Though he longed for death, his animal instinct fought for survival and James has been a wolf ever since. Yet now a woman has reawakened the man in him, taming wild instincts but arousing still wilder needs. With his ancient enemy hunting the legendary white wolf, James must fight for new life, new hope, new love.


Night's Cold Kiss by Tracey O'Hara
The tension between the Aeternus, an ancient vampiric people, and humanity has been mounting for over a century. But when rogue vampires begin to drain humans in order to achieve an illegal blood-high, all bets are off.
After the death of her parents, Antoinette Petrescu devoted her life to becoming one of the top Venators, the elite hunters who destroy the rogue Necrodreniacs. Her kill count is legendary and her skills superb.
But now the serial killer who killed her parents has returned. And to stop him Antoinette must join forces not only with the Aeternus, but also their most legendary killer. One that is both dangerously attractive, and involved in buried secrets of her past. More dangerous still, a dark attraction grows between them--one that could doom both races.


Out of the Box by KallySten
The first time Virginia went to the dance club On The Edge, she only wanted to find out what a night in a vampire’s arms would be like. Anando showed her it could be much, much more than she had imagined. Over the next few months, every time she returned he continued to stretch her imagination and the boundaries she tried to set on their relationship. Soon, though, Anando’s limits were tested as much as Virginia’s when their sexual encounters gave way to feelings neither of them had expected.


Living Out of the Box by KallySten
The very first time Virginia spent a night with the vampire Anando, she couldn’t have begun to imagine all the sensual and sexual games she would experience with him. She also couldn’t have imagined that she would fall in love with him, or he with her.
As she moves in with him and they find their places in each other’s lives, the discoveries start again. A few of them happen through old games revisited: role-play, public sex or a familiar dildo in a different hand. Other discoveries come through new toys, some battery-operated, others custom-made to fit just right. And yet more discoveries come from playing with old and new partners.
But in the end, the one lesson that remains the same might be the most important of all: love.

The Vampire Warden Series by Lisa Renee Jones
The Wardens series begins with the three Brooks brothers, Evan (34), Aiden (32) and Taylor (28). They were early settlers of the town of Braunfels, Texas. When the town was haunted by a series of brutal animal attacks, that left a half-dozen townsmen murdered, the Brooks brothers took things into their own hands. Armed and ready for action, they set out into the wilderness, determined to find this animal and kill it. What they found was a female vampire who decided the brothers were scrumptious morsels, worth keeping around for a lifetime. She attacked the brothers and turned them to vampires.

No sooner did she turn them, though, than another vampire appeared and killed her. This vampire declared himself a “Warden” of the Vampire Council. Wardens uphold the rules of the Vampire race and report to the Council. Killing a human is punishable by death and their ‘Maker’ had broken that rule. The brothers were then taken to the Council, where they were taught how to survive without killing, how to mingle with humans as if one of them, and when to move on from a location so that they would not be suspected as vampires. Most importantly, they learned who their enemies were and how to defeat them.

In the end, the brothers were granted a financial dowry that had belonged to their Maker and given the choice of freedom, under Council rule, or an alternative—to become Wardens.

Now, the brothers travel together as Wardens, tracking outlaw vampires, killing them and protecting innocent humans. It is their eternal duty.

  1. Some great holiday movies! I actually watch all of these as kind of a marathon movie Christmas countdown. But I have two favorites not mentioned yet. It’s a Wonderful Life and The Bishop’s Wife. Two of my favorite movies of all time. Hope I matched the right movie to the right author…
