Hot Top Tuesday: Dragons, Deeds and Desires

The best part of being Tuesday is all the new releases that come out.  For some (like me) they happen on a Monday and for others a Wednesday or perhaps a Friday, but for the majority of the book lovers in the world, it’s Tuesday that is the best day of the week.  Tuesday is new release day and for those eager to download to the Kindle or the Nook or waiting for that package from Amazon or for the front doors to open to their favorite corner book shop, Barnes and Noble or Borders (please don’t close, fingers crossed),  […]

What do you get with a werewolf named Kitty, a radio show and a fresh look at werewolves in literature?
