November Eve. The Hunt Ball. And to prove her right to rule, Tate must capture a mate. It should’ve been simple. Snag a vampire barely turned and have him kneel and swear devotion to her. But Fate has other plans…and one of them involves the powerful son of the ruling Queen.
Jager, a vampire she’s hungered after for years, allows himself to become her prey. But with his promise of sinful, wicked pleasure comes a catch. Jager only wants her as his slave. Nothing more.
Tate has no plans to bow down to him…until Jager shares a shocking truth with her. Suddenly Fate is playing hardball.
Mine’s pretty blah today, mostly cause I’m doing it up right now very quickly but, mine’s on the 13 things I currently am anxious/can’t wait for.
1. The toronto romance writers chapter meeting in a few weeks. It’s a bit pathetic but it’s one of the only times I go out and do something on weekends that’s fun, for me.
2. That being said, the DC conference in July. Nervous as heck, but excited to meet so many new people. I’ll be the shy one not talking… guaranteed. LOL.
3. Finding out if I get this new job.
4. Sending in my 3 lines for the contest (never entered a contest before…)
5. Finally saying that I finished a novel. It’s in its final stages of editing… but by May 1st I want to say that it’s DONE and move on to book two.
6. Seeing my aunt and uncle next thurs. Yay. They’ll only be passing through really but still. It’s been awhile.
7. Moving on to the next book to read. Not that the one I’m currently reading is bad, but it’s just different. It has little characterization and tells 3/4 of the way through, explaining every little thing, like, ‘telling through dialogue about old furniture’ when it could easily be shown. Little things… but it still pulls the reader out.
8. Tomorrow. It’s my day off. Which means sleeping in. 🙂 I’m a zombie right now, cause of a bad night of continuously waking up and getting no real sleep, so this is one thing I’m REALLY looking forward to. Heh.
9. Getting my hair done before I go up to DC in July. Hah. I haven’t gotten it done since the summer so it needs to be touched up. I don’t have enough money to do anything right now other than try and dye it myself. Which I did… earlier this month but it turned out redder than I expected and doesn’t quite suite me so I need it to grow out.
10. Going home for a week in Aug to spend time with the fam. I talk every day pretty much for a bit to my mom on msn and I do call home, but it’s not the same. I want to spend time on the farm, with the dog and my parents… and be able to walk to the lake and pick strawberries…
11. Warm weather. It’s still quite cool out. I don’t mind the rain, I love it. But cold rain no. And the fact that it snowed a bit last week? No… go away. But at least we don’t have snow on the ground like my parents… they’re still getting snow storms some days.
12. Subway. LOL. I know that it’s completetly ridiculous but I’m craving Subway… so I decided that on the way home, I’d pick up a sub or something.
13. Paying off my visa… ok I have about one more paycheque to be put in… well two I guess. That means I can start saving again and putting money in my RRSP again… or put it toward the student loans- boo- to help pay them off faster.
Happy April Fools!
It’s been a busy week, I almost wasn’t able to do this week’s, but I’m quickly going to jot it out because come on, who doesn’t want to learn more about what’s going on in the science world? I know it’s something I get excited about, because it means more story ideas. 🙂
The first article this week is about how the brain responds to viral infection. It may not seem all that interesting, but as someone who has always been curious about viruses, this article caught my attention.
Also, researchers are helping to save a rare venomous mammal that is shrew-like and kills its prety with a venomous bite.
Something of complete interest to me is Egyptology and this article jumped out at me right away. A CT scan has revealed a hidden face underneath the bust of Nefertiti.
This last one I’m going to post is a bit weird and almost sci-fi-ish. It has to do with a yeast-powered fuel cells that feeds on human blood which is thought one day to maybe power implants such as pacemakers.
From the Earth Hour site:
YOUR LIGHT SWITCH IS YOUR VOTE
This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.
For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.
In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.
We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.
VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

I personally am not much of a shoe person. If you looked at my shoes, you’d see that. I wear a pair until I wear out the sole and it starts to come apart. But I know some of you out there love shoes… so I thought I do my thursday thirteen on 13 weird shoes.
So any takers? LOL.
A lot has been going on lately, and the first article I’m posting is an interesting story that Science News has put up about reading a mind’s memories by looking at patterns on brain scans.
For those interested in cars, ScienceDaily also wants you to read about the flying car that took to the skies in its first test flight on March 5th.
Not exactly sure what this means in the big picture of things, but here’s an article about artificial genetics and the new type of DNA that has 12 chemical letters instead of 4.
Compromising Positions releases today!
Falling in love is the last thing on his busy agenda…but compromising positions can lead just about anywhere.
David Strong knows how to do a lot of things—run an international fitness company, finesse stock portfolios and stay out of emotional entanglements. That is, until he gets tangled up with Sophie Delfino and her Sensational Sex workout. He’s supposed to help her demonstrate Kama Sutra positions for her couples’ yoga class. The rigorous postures require more than just physical control. And his co-instructor unexpectedly tests his control to the limit.
Sophie’s been fantasizing about David since her teens, but she never dreamed she’d actually be expected to run through her intimate desires—with an audience! The class is very professional, tame even—or it would be, if she’d been in any of the positions before. But she hasn’t—except in her wildest fantasies about David. Sophie knows she wants David in every way, and she’s flexible enough to use whatever she has to get him.
David can’t afford any unexpected distractions. Besides the sensual positions he has to endure without embarrassing himself in public, there’s an embezzler stealing from his company. And then there’s Sophie—who is well on her way to stealing his well-guarded heart.
Warning: This is one exercise program you won’t need to consult your doctor before beginning…unless he’s hot and available for house calls. The Kama Sutra isn’t for the prudish or faint of heart, and neither is this story.
In a world where fonts are people, Times New Roman is king. My favourite is Wingdings, who is annoying and talks in gibberish. It is one of College Humor’s original videos and is a good one. This was posted on RD and I thought it was hilarious so I had to pass it on. Check it out:
