Review for Ice-Cold Lover

Susan W. from The Romance Studio posted a lovely review of Ice-Cold Lover, which is the 2nd book in my Winged & Dangerous gargoyle series. Here is a snippet from the review:

Right from the very first page author Mel Teshco creates a rich, sensual and pull-at-the-heartstrings romance where marvelous storytelling, combined with a high level of emotion makes for a non-stop delight of a story. Filled with secrets, misunderstandings and a high level of danger add a compelling edge to this fast paced plot that will have the reader sitting on the edge of their seat waiting to see what's next for the lovers.

Ms. Teshco steams up the pages while drawing the reader into the emotionally powerful and highly enchanting relationship between Celeste and Pascal, a heroine who is equally matched by a strong and delightful hero. Well-drawn, empathetic, sexy, charming and enduring Pascal and Celeste are some of the most imaginative and bewitching characters to come along in quite a while. The sex is steamy and more than a bit naughty. The dialogue is sharp, snappy and sassy. The supporting characters work well to drive the action forward.

Ice-Cold Lover keeps the reader's attention from the beginning!

Overall rating:
Sensuality rating: Explicit

Tomorrow: When the War Began


I went for a drive to the coast to check out this movie with Miss Twelve. TWTWB is based on a book series by Australian author, John Marsden. I SO enjoyed it, and in fact will definately check out the book after seeing the movie.
A group of teens go camping at a remote area called "Hell" a good drive (four-wheel-drive of course) from their little country community. In the meantime their 'town' has been invaded by another country of unknown asian origin, (find me those flags...) and these teens-after coming back to dead animals and missing family, decide they have no choice but to fight back.
It's so great to see such a fantastic Australian movie, really recomment it.

Reading...

I generally read three or four different books at a time, and have been lucky enough to read some brilliant books recently. I'm almost finished these three below, and loving them!


Kissing Sin, is Keri Arthur's 2nd book of the Riley Jenson series starring a sex-hungry werewolf cross vampire heroine, a horse shifter lover and quite a few other past lovers.... did I mention the fight scenes and the sex scenes? Loving it!



Forbidden
is Christina Phillips take on the Roman times with Maximus and Carys who share a forbidden love! I have to say I loved the opening scene (no spoilers here) and of course you gotta love/hate the bad guy!!




Acheron is Sherrilyn Kenyon's 15th book in the Dark Hunter series. I was never a fan of S.K's but this book is making me reconsider. Acheron is a god sent to the womb of a human queen to save his life. Only he grows up to endure unspeakable abuse and horrors. I'm only halfway through this book, and all I can say is I'm looking forward to his HEA!!!!

DISCOVERING SOFIA, release date and blurb!

My free Ellora's Cave read, DISCOVERING SOFIA, is due out November 1st. Here is the official blurb!

Sofia is a divorcee, struggling to deal with the infidelities of her ex-husband. Then one day she sees a man hitchhiking. A muscular, sexy, younger man with a beautiful ass. Impulsively, she pulls her car to the side of the road and picks up the scrumptious hunk.

Jake is an adventurous guy who believes in living life to its fullest. He lets Sofia know that he thinks she is a beautiful, desirable woman, and he wants her. Jake makes her feel sexy and confident. Sofia just has to get up the nerve to go for it because she suddenly knows just what she needs to do to end all the pain and unhappiness that has consumed her.

Believe it...or not? LoveCat post


I'm chatting at the LoveCats about my passion for paranormal writing/reading and movies. About what creates such intense emotions. I based much of this on my recent scary alien movie 'Fourth Kind'. If you like alien encounter horror/thrillers, with supposed real life footage - this movie is one you don't want to miss!

My Birthday/Cocktail party

My two eldest daughters organized a cocktail party for my 40th birthday. It was so wonderful just to sit and talk to people, with cocktails flowing out of the kitchen LOL! I think all the guests had a great time. Hubby then cooked a bbq, though I think many of us were to bloated from said cocktails to indulge in too much food.
Was also great to catch up with my brother who lives in NSW (and who many think is my twin) and whose birthday is actually the day before mine.
As if such a great night wasn't enough, my husband topped off my birthday morning (the next day) with a gift voucher with four different sessions at a beauty clinic: Visit 1: Aromatherapy Facial (swiss formulated botanica products massaged into skin followed by a gentle exfoliation then a drenching mask applied.) Visit 2: a Bliss Back Facial (tingling exfoliation crystals massaged into back, neck and shoulders and removed gently with warm compress. Silky moisturising balm then applied.) Visit 3: Sole Retreat (tired and aching feet plunged into a warm foot bath. With deep sea minerals, essential oils and an expert touch, tired legs and dry skin will vanish. Soak, foot and legs massage) Visit 4: Spa Massage (A specially designed massage. An aromotherapy blend with subliminal music and the sound of you own heart beating for a restful state.
What a gorgeous present!!! Thanks hubby! And thanks to my girls! =)

Cover for Free Read: Discovering Sofia


I have a free short read coming soon through Ellora's Cave. I had such fun with DISCOVERING SOFIA , a story that just came to me almost from start to finish. Here is it's very unofficial blurb:

Young Man. Older woman.

Sofia is a soon-to-be divorcee struggling to deal with the infidelities of her ex-husband. It's only after she impulsively pulls her car to the side of the road and picks up a hitchhiker, that her insecurities begin to melt away.

Under Jake's gentle tutelage, for the first time she feels cherished. Beautiful. And strong enough to walk away from it all in the end.

Another Lovecat Read... Nikki Logan




One of the things I love about being in a group author blog, is reading their books! The Lovecats have some stellar writers and I can't wait to read ALL their work!! I've started out with Nikki's LIGHTS, CAMERA... KISS THE BOSS her debut category romance novel!

The heroine, Ava Lange is a landscape designer, caught up in the world of tv presentation she doesn't particularly want any part of. She's a hands-on kind of girl, not a pinup poster for the network who also have her past love and producer-Dan Arnot-on their pay roll.

It was a great insight into the tv industry, and I loved the Australian setting - of course! =)

Cover Reveal!

So happy with the wonderful cover from Totally Bound for my story, Blood Chance. Some readers might remember this story as Her Dark Lord...
