Whittling the TBR (2)



grab the following code for your
blog



Whittling the TBR is an event hosted by The Romance Reviews every Tuesday, that aims to decrease the TBR pile one book at a time. The purpose of this event is two-fold: 1.) to help book lovers tackle their ever-growing TBR pile as part of a community effort, and 2.) to bring not-so-recently published books to light.

Reading is a solitary event, but let's do it together!

Pick out a book (or two) that's been languishing in your TBR pile for six months or more with the intention to read (and finish) it this week. On the last Tuesday of the month, we'll have a Whittling the TBR Brag Day wherein we'll give a mini review  of the books we've read or a full review, if that's your preference.

The book I chose for this week is


Description from author's website:

Forbidden Temptations…

Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter—and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she's been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn't all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she's finally met the one man she cannot resist.

Fatal Desires…

Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe—her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions, and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: he's falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.

Still available at Book Depository (print).

Mechanics of Whittling the TBR meme:

1. Grab the button up there and place it in your Whittling the TBR post.

2. Put your blog name (the name of the chosen book in parenthesis) and the URL of your Whittling the TBR post in the appropriate Linky fields.

Example:
Blog Name: The Romance Reviews (Passion Unleashed)

3. Check out as many blogs listed as you can and leave encouraging comments, especially if you've read the book before. This is a good way to meet more people. Moreover, conquering a mountain, not to mention several mountains, is a community effort!

4. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste within your post under "HTML".

5. Non-bloggers can also join in the fun! You cannot leave the blog link field blank nor can Linky accept duplicate links, so I'm sorry non-bloggers, but you'll just have to leave your intentions in the comment section. Please leave an encouraging comment in the original post at The Romance Reviews for the non-bloggers. For Whittling the TBR Brag Day, we may allow non-bloggers to make a guest post review at The Romance Reviews! Those interested, please send an email to caroletrr(@)gmail(.)com, preferably within these two weeks so that we can work out a schedule.

I LOVED Passion Unleashed. Wraith is my favorite but Lore is a close second. All the demon brothers are yummy.

I have yet to read those two! Lore's the hero in Ecstasy Unveiled, right? I'm looking forward to them. :) Then there's Sin Undone to look forward to.
