"This whole episode appears to be about people getting revenge on those they feel have slighted them."
What book does C.L. Parker wish she wrote? Continue reading to find the answer to that and more...
With Cyrus and the queen forming an alliance to take the kingdom in hand, it appears as though this episode will set the tone for next week’s finale. The episode opens with the confirmation that the twins are not the descendants of the queen. Eleanor is on the path to finding answers, she knows the queen and Cyrus had something to do with the reveal and she’s going to find out what is going on. The queen also drops a bomb after Eleanor accuses her of killing Robert, her brother...
Did you catch the season finale last night? Raven Presley is here with a recap of our last taste of Storybrooke until the fall...

In honor of romance-loving moms everywhere, we’ve put together a list of great reads for Mother’s Day, with picks from our very own Scandal, Tiffany Tyer, and editor Sue Grimshaw. Happy Mother’s Day and happy reading!
"Kat Latham returns to the world of rugby football in her London Legends series, this time with a second chance at love story between an man who has sacrificed everything including love for his career, and the one woman who might be more important than rugby TAMING THE LEGEND. I admit it, I’m a sucker for a story about two people rekindling their passion for each other and this book delivers. TAMING THE LEGEND is one of the most mature and emotionally satisfying romances that I have read in a long time."
"BREAKING NOAH starts as a slow burn, but when things start to heat up, they get explosive in a hurry. The resulting story is one of finding love amidst loss and taking chances to pursue passion, with a heaping helping of intrigue. Fans of angsty New Adult fiction with heat will love this one."
"Usually I love a show that kicks off with an “Adult Content” warning -- but maybe not so much with this one. Jake is busy recovering at warp speed under Liv’s watchful eye. Quinn and Huck are next door doing all sorts of nasty torture “adult content” things to Russell. They want to understand what Foxtail is and Quinn has the power tools and isn’t afraid to use them. Brutal, just brutal; but then again, when you work for Papa Pope, crap like this is in the job description. We know Russell was trained better than that – he doesn’t need a kneecap or his fingernails – they won't get the Foxtail scoop out of him."
Christina is back with her erotic picks. This month she brings us her favorite science fiction/supernatural erotica.
"I don't like thinking about tropes. They're a requirement in my job, and so I do it, but it's not something I enjoy. But first: What the bleep is a trope?"
"Kenyon spared no backstory detail in BORN OF DEFIANCE, giving us some of the biggest pieces of favorite characters’ history and the secrets they have been hiding. (Which I am not going to share, so you’re going to have to read to find out because I’d hate to have the author’s plot bunnies make me their next victim.) I’ll say that I really didn’t expect Talyn’s book to be this packed with both history and Andarion culture. "
"In this installment we meet Joshua, the new manager. He’s Ivy-league educated with a Masters degree and is looking to take the Den to the next level. He has a higher standard and wants to see more of a gentleman’s club atmosphere -- a stark contrast to the slightly seedy club frequented by bikers and other average strip club clients. He’s got a new book of rules and regulations and a heavy hand, but when he meets Macey, he immediately realizes he may have just met his match."
You know what they say: April showers bring May flower (beards)! In honor of the new month and the bright, sunshiney weather that comes with it, we wanted to celebrate with some floral fellows who make our cheeks a little rosier.
First, the episode title: "Broke and Pantyless.” Priceless! And Josh is a bluegrass player? Did we seriously need any more reasons to love him? As we’re admiring how good Liza’s got it, Kelsey gets a booty call text from her hot Swedish author Anton that she plays off to Liza and Maggie as “work,” though they know what’s up. Later in bed, Liza makes a reference to the Go-Go’s while Josh is thinking Lady Gaga and the fact that they keep having these moments of total wire-crossing is pretty funny.
It’s difficult not to love a cowboy of the Old West – think Gary Cooper and Clint Eastwood – and these authors know a thing or two about Old West cowboys. Historical Western authors Linda Broday, Rosanne Bittner, Jo Goodman, Kaki Warner, Jacqui Nelson, and E.E. Burke share their answers to the question: What are the characteristics an Old West cowboy hero must have?
Author Deeanne Gist joins us today with great imagination (and a little help from author Damon Suede) to answer the question: If a Victorian man wanted to try out a few pick-up lines, what turn of phrase might he use?
"I could not help but fall in love with Melisande. Even though she puts off the persona of being a “stupid poodle” the reality is she is a brigh -- quite often hilarious -- woman with the will to live and love. She made me laugh (more than once) and she made me cry; the courage she showed in the midst of bone numbing fear make Melly the embodiment of a heroine."
It’s 1535 and it’s about to get real in England. Informative caption tells us that the Act of Supremacy declared Henry head of the Church of England but Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (and nephew of Henry’s ex-wife Catherine of Aragon) and Ambassador Chapuys refuse to recognize the King’s new title or his marriage to Anne Boleyn...
With the Sterling Cooper gang transitioning into the office building of McCann Erickson, it becomes very apparent that this move is more like herding lost sheep into the wolves’ den. Devoured by the new agency within their first week, and forced to tackle a checklist of -isms, the executive team is slowly fading away...

The Evil Queen stops at a group of villagers and stalks towards them after stepping out of her buggy. She finds out that the villagers are planning on wedding at the spot where they stand: royal lands. The queen loses her temper and yanks the heart of the groom out of his chest. When her father begins rationalizing to her the benefits of sparing her people (since she is losing her temper on account of what day it is) she angrily crushes the grooms heart -- killing him instantly. As the bride and their family wail over his body, the queen returns to her carriage. She goes to the grave of her beloved Daniel. Seeing a yellow rose sitting on his grave stone, the infuriated queen turns to find her mother standing behind her...
The momentum continues to build and in last nights episode there was some great action as well as the introduction of some new faces.
Jess Moro recaps last night's episode -- including a shocking twist. Spoilers ahead!
I love this urban sci-fi series. I feel I have to stress that every week with every epiosde that airs. The pace is simply amazing, the POV's of the characters gripping, and the revelations are never-ending. Just when you thought you know it all, another false bottom breaks and it's mayhem once again. [Spoiler Alert!]
