'The Bullied Series'
My journey as a writer and reader has led me to many places and to many books. These books are gems, priceless because their meanings in my life are infinite but there are special books whose words weave around my soul before becoming a huge part of me. Sometimes, I have found them on a dusty old shelf and sometimes, I have found them on a tablet or phone. That is where I found The Bullied Series by Vera Micic… On a phone, while scrolling through Wattpad.
The Crescent Hotel and Spa
In Eureka Springs, Arkansas overlooking a valley sits The Crescent Hotel and Spa. Opening its doors on May 20, 1886, it began its rich and haunted history which eventually gave it its nickname of America’s Most Haunted Hotel. Designed by Isaac L. Taylor and built by The Eureka Springs Improvement Company headed by the governor of Arkansas, Powell Clayton in hopes of taking advantage of the springs surrounding the hotel that were touted as healing waters, stonemasons from Ireland were brought in for construction and brought the 78-room resort to life boasting numerous towers, chandeliers, beautiful gardens and wooden pathways. People flocked to The Crescent Hotel but when they realized that the springs held no healing power they stopped coming and the hotel closed its doors.
When thinking of gunslingers, murder, the goldrush and ghosts, one can’t help but to think of Tombstone, Arizona where the wildest of the west was fought but Southwest of Tombstone in Cochise County are the remains of a simple adobe cabin by the name of Brunkcow’s Cabin nicknamed ‘the bloodiest cabin in Arizona’. Brunkcow’s Cabin is the scene of at least twenty-one deaths with many of those who died buried on the property.
Romance Reviews: Daphne Loveling's 'Lords of Carnage'
In the world of romance, there are many sub-genres. As a reader, we pick the ones that interest us, and in many cases, we pick the ones that reflect things in our lives. I grew up around bikers. My favorite babysitters were a biker and his old lady. I also married into a biker family, worked around bikers and my children’s godfather was a biker. So, when I chose to read M.C. romance, it was important to me that they were represented well. As a romance reader, I do expect them to have hot romance and even hotter men. In the Lords of Carnage series, I found everything I expected.
