Links, Brides & Tigresses

Today's a bit of a grab bag.

First, I have a confirmed release date for Caressed By Ice, the third Psy/Changeling book. It's going to be September 07. Yippee!

Second, if you're in the mood to win stuff, Paperback Writer is doing giveaways - plus she has a list of others doing the same.

Third, have you seen the movie Bride and Prejudice? It's been out for ages but I couldn't get hold of a copy in Japan (though I did manage to find Bend It Like Beckham). I was prejudiced (*g*) to like this anyway because that cute Martin Henderson is from NZ, but I thought it was a sweet, romantic movie that had me grinning throughout. That song "No Life Without Wife" is hilarious. If you haven't seen this, leave your serious side at the door and have a look-see.

Fourth, I have to rave about a book I finished at 1a.m. last night: Animal Instincts by Gena Showalter. The reason I have to rave is that this book is a single title contemporary - a funny one, which doesn't usually work for me (I'm into the darker stuff in case you hadn't guessed). But the second I read the first line of Gena's book, I couldn't put it down. Naomi, the heroine, is a doormat (in her own words) who is trying to channel her Inner Tigress. Unfortunately her sexy (whoa!) new employer keeps throwing her off the path to Tigress-ness.

Sexy, funny and emotional, this is just a great book. Go read! Here endeth the book pimp section of today's post.

Have a great weekend folks!

I have looked at Bride and Prejudice a few times but never picked it up, I will have to grab it for a light watch, thanks. Animal Instincts is on my wishlist for Christmas. I love Gena's books, she cracks me up.
