Reading on the Dark Side: Five Reasons why Jericho Barrons isn’t so Bad

Posted 25 January, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Reading on the Dark Side / 13 Comments


Most of you are well aware of my obsession with JZB. He has been my ultimate book boyfriend for a long time and with good reason. However, I get teased a lot here at UTC by Suzanne because I am in love with “a douche.”

Okaaaaay, so I’ll admit that Barrons isn’t the type to write poems or send a girl roses on Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t make a great book boyfriend! And today, I’m going to prove it!

Here I give you the top five reasons why Jericho Barrons isn’t so bad.

  1. He can save your life with his dick – Remember when Mac was Pri-ya? Suffering intense horniness that nothing, NOTHING but Barrons’ magic stick couldn’t fix? For a month or two, Mac and Barrons had marathon sex from sun up to sun down. And he isn’t the classic alpha in bed either where he’s only on top. Barrons is willing to give up the reins and sit back to enjoy the ride.
  1. He’ll let you drive the Lamborghini- If you’ve got a need for speed, luxury cars sitting pretty in his garage are more like long-lost jewels to you. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
  1. He knows when a fight isn’t worth it – Barrons is as alpha as you can get, but even then he knows when to shut up when something isn’t worth fighting for. This, my friends, is something most men still struggle with, Nine or not.
  1. He trusts you – Not many people can stand by Barrons’ side proudly. That spot needs to be earned through a lot of hard work and likely years of trying to prove yourself. Yet when push comes to shove and the stakes are extremely high, Barrons is still able to take a step back and allow you to fight when it’s required.
  1. What’s yours is mine, baby – And no, I’m not simply talking about the expensive clothes, the cars, or the ancient antique relics in his possession, I’m talking about Barrons, Books and Baubles! That bookstore is every reader’s dream home. With its towering bookcases, its chesterfield couches and crackling fireplace, there is no place I would rather be than be with cozied up with a good book.


Tell me in the comments what you love about Barrons so I know I’m not crazy for loving this psychopathic, brooding, sexy man!

The last book that kept me “up all night” reading was Marian Keyes’ “Anybody Out There?”



I’d read other Marian Keyes books and I love her Irish humor. I love how she writes about really dark things (addiction, depression, alcoholism) and can still make you laugh out loud. When I started “Anybody Out There” it was light and funny and piqued my curiosity because you don’t know what’s happened to the heroine…so I kept reading and reading because I had to know and then…I found out.

I actually put the book down and decided I couldn’t read this one.

I was lying there, though, thinking about it and thinking about it, so I picked it up again. This was before I read on my tablet, so if I wanted to stay up all night reading, I had to leave the bedroom so as not to disturb the husband. Now I can (and do!) literally read under the covers on my tablet!

I actually shed some tears as I got back into the story and after that, I couldn’t put it down. I’m still wishing for a sequel to that book – there are other stories about the Walsh sisters, but I’d so love to read a follow up story for Anna.

Enter the Dare To Love world created by Carly Phillips with this steamy story by Kelly Jamieson! Celebrate the Dare To Love Worlds novellas with the hashtag #DoYouDare.


A Kelly Jamieson story set in New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips’ “Dare To Love” Kindle World!

Love hurts…even when you don’t believe in it…

Interior designer Micki Arnott is anticipating her boyfriend’s marriage proposal with excitement. She and prominent businessman Garrett Caulfield have been seeing each other for over a year and they’re in love. Okay, maybe Garrett hasn’t actually said those three little words, but Micki knows he feels them. But instead of a diamond ring, Garrett hands her a contract…

Garrett wants Micki to move in with him, to commit to him and only him, but he doesn’t believe in love and marriage. After watching his parents cheat and hurt each other all while proclaiming their love, that’s not what he wants his life to be. A contract seems like the perfect way to make sure he and Micki both understand the parameters of their relationship.

When Micki throws Garrett’s contract in his face and tells him to never call her again, he’s shocked and confused. He’s not a quitter, but he’s not going to fight with Micki like his parents did. Micki knows she’s doing the right thing—she deserves to be loved and isn’t going to waste her life on a man who doesn’t even believe in love. Garrett blames his misery on too much scotch…but what if that pain isn’t really the mother of all hangovers…what if it’s…love?

About Kelly Jamieson

Kelly Jamieson - author pic

I'm a married mother of two who lives a very ordinary life outside of my imagination. When I'm not writing I'm usually reading. I also like to cook and that means I like to read cookbooks and cooking magazines.

I also love to travel. As you can see, pretty much all my activities involve reading somehow! Although I don't have as much time for it any more, I also love to shop, especially for clothes and shoes. Some think I'm obsessed with shoes but that is not true (although my husband would point out that there is no room left in our closet).

Top Ten Sexy Beards

Posted 24 January, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Top Ten / 5 Comments

Take good care of your beard! Close-up of young shirtless man wi

When did beards become so sexy? It seems to have snuck up on me; one minute beards are something only Father Christmas and old men in leather vests wear and now, I don’t seem to find anyone sexy unless at least 40% of their face is hairy. Personally I am blaming Penny Reid with her introduction of the sexy Winston brother, all bearded all gorgeous, that lady has a lot to answer for. However, she isn’t the only one influencing my love of a good beard, have you seen some of the hotties packing the facial hair recently? How can a girl resist these guys? So here is a list of the top ten guys currently getting us squirming over a good beard!

circle10Ryan Gosling

Sexy. Sophisticated…and more importantly sporting a beard that gets a girl wondering exactly what that would feel like rubbing against her!


Joe Manganiellocircle9

Ruggedly sexy, Joe looks like he would spend all day chopping would with his very large ax and then come home and show us a different kind of wood, it’s got to be the beard, then again it could also be the abs!

circle8Luke Evans

So Luke doesn’t exactly have a big bushy beard, but he has some a marvelous ‘tache going on, and although I know it came out recently that he is batting for the other team, but a girl can dream!

Ryan Reynoldscircle7

No matter what this guy does, he looks gorgeous, beard or no beard, but I have to say it adds a little something!


circle6Hugh Jackman

I admit I have a few XXX rated thoughts about this member of X-Men…the rough beard, the gorgeous body; mouth-wateringly good!

Hugh Jackman

Henry Cavillcircle5

I love this picture, he looks so gosh darn manly! The gorgeous chest hair, the untrimmed beard and hair in disarray. It makes me want to do bad bad things, which will feel oh so good, is it the presence of the beard? Maybe.

Henry Cavill

circle4Charlie Hunnam

Grab a drool bucket and some tissues and look at the picture below, need I say more?

Charlie Hunnam

Jake Gyllenhcircle3aal

Whether he is running around in Prince of Persia or being super creepy in Nightcrawler, all my girly parts know it is Jake and I can’t help but give a little sigh and stare adoringly. And does he rock the beard? Hell. Yeah.

Jake Gyllanhal

circle2Chris Hemsworth

Or Phwoar (get it Thor, Phwoar!) as I like to refer to him. Blonde and gorgeous, he just begs another look at. And that beard, I wouldn’t mind getting lost in it!

Chris Hemsworth colour

Jason Momoacircle1

Jason has long been a UTC favourite, he manages to slip in our fantasy casts on a regular basis, mainly I believe because he slips into our fantasies on a regular basis! He just looks so sexy, wild and dangerous, and the beard? It all adds to the appeal!

Excerpt: FALLING AWAY by Penelope Douglas

Posted 23 January, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Author Override / 3 Comments


Chapter 6 Excerpt

As he made his way back through town, the only sound we could hear was the water on the streets being kicked up under the tires. He’d silenced the radio, we weren’t talking . . . and I felt as if he’d switched off.

Everything had felt alive when he kissed me. His heart under my palm. His breath in my mouth. His hands roaming over my skin as if they were trying to memorize every inch of me.

Now he was a bullet. Going from point A to point B without hesitation.

Until his flat tone finally filled the car. “Come home with me.” It wasn’t a question, and I couldn’t hear a trace of emotion.

I turned to him, stunned. “Are you serious?” I asked. “I don’t think I’d be enough for you.”

“Don’t do that,” he shot back. “Don’t ruin what happened between us. You were fire in my hands, and I want you to remember it, K.C.”

I could feel his eyes on me as I clasped the strap of Tate’s messenger bag sitting on the floor.

“Clothed, naked, I don’t care . . . ” He trailed off, sounding almost sad. “As long as your lips are on me again.”

I shifted in the seat, trying to buy myself time. What I wanted and what I should do were two different things. I’d fought that battle with Liam, my mother, and hell, the list went on. It was true when I told Jax that I wanted to be a mess. But I didn’t want to get hurt.

“Thanks for the lesson,” I said. “And the ride. But I’m not like you, Jax. I don’t just ignore the rules and take what I want.”

“You don’t know me.” His tone turned defensive. “You know nothing about me.”

“And what do you know about me?” I threw back. “Other than you wanted me to spread my legs in high school? You want to have fun with me and nothing more, Jax. Find someone else.”

He jerked the steering wheel to the right, and I grabbed the door handle to keep from vaulting over to his side of the car as he sped up into his driveway.

My heart jumped into my throat, and I shot out my hand, grabbing the dash when he skidded to a quick halt in front of his garage.

“Jax, Jesus!” I scolded.

He shut off the car, yanked the parking brake up, and turned to look at me, leaning his forearm on the steering wheel. “You think I don’t know you?” he challenged.

I pursed my lips. “Other than that I’m gutless and helpless, no.”

He shook his head. “You want to travel. To unusual and dangerous places. You hid a binder full of National Geographic pages in your locker in high school because you didn’t want your mom to see all the pictures you’d torn out to keep track of the places you wanted to visit.”

My jaw dropped slightly, and I widened my eyes. What?

He continued. “You didn’t eat lunch for an entire month senior year, because you saw Stu Levi not eating and found out his single mom was out of work and couldn’t afford to put money on his lunch card. So you put your own money on it. Anonymously.”

How did . . . ?

“You love dark chocolate,” he kept going, “Ricky Gervais, and any movie with singing and dancing.” His voice filled the car, and my heartbeat was in my ears. “Except The Wizard of Oz, because the witch freaks you out, right? And you’ve collected almost an entire set of vintage Nancy Drew books. You had the most badges in your troop in Girl Scouts, and you had to quit swimming when you were fourteen because your mom said that your shoulders were getting too muscular and you wouldn’t look feminine. You loved swimming,” he added.

I wrapped my arms around my stomach, the air turning cold. Tate and Liam didn’t even know all that.

“I didn’t drool all over you in high school, K.C. I listened to you. I paid attention to you. What the hell do you know about me?”

And he swung the car door open, climbed out, and slammed it shut, not waiting for an answer.

I sat there, watching him walk into his house and close the door.

Then the tears spilled over, and as much as I wanted to prove him wrong, I couldn’t go after him. He didn’t know that I’d watched him, too. He didn’t know that I’d paid attention as well.

I always saw him.

“Music centers you,” I whispered to an empty car, staring at his front door. “You listened to your iPod between classes and while you sat on the bleachers before school every morning.” I smiled, letting more tears run down my cheeks and thinking back to him and his black hoodies, looking so dark. “You love popcorn. Almost every kind and flavor but especially with Tabasco sauce,” I said, remembering the times he would come into the theater where I worked. “You hold the door open for women—students, teachers, and even old ladies coming out of Baskin-Robbins. You love movies about natural disasters, but they have to have some comedy in them. Your favorite one is Armageddon.” I swallowed and thought about how little I’d ever seen Jax truly smile. “And while you love computers, it’s not your passion,” I concluded. “You love being outdoors. You love having space.” My whole face hurt, the last words barely audible. “And you deserve someone who makes you happy. I’m just not that person.”



Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid.

K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away….

K. C. Carter has always followed the rules—until this year, when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and to make matters worse, trouble is living right next door.

Jaxon Trent is the worst kind of temptation and exactly what K.C. was supposed to stay away from in high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn’t give him the time of day and the only one to ever say no. Fate has brought K.C. back into his life—except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too close for comfort. As the bond between them grows, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.…

Excerpt: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ALICE by Katie MacAlister

Posted 22 January, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Author Override / 3 Comments


“This day,” Elliott said to a gull that sat on the railing of the cabin’s minuscule deck and pecked in a desultory manner at a bit of bread it had scavenged up somewhere, “is one of the longest I’ve ever known. It should most definitely be seven o’clock by now, shouldn’t it?”

The words spoken aloud shocked him into adding, “Not that I am looking forward to dinner with Alice, mind you. It’s just that I’ve been in the cabin all day, and I’ve written the amount I set myself to write, and then some, and now I am hungry and thirsty and could do with a break. That’s all very reasonable, isn’t it, gull? It’s not as if I’ve been wishing I could have gone with the others to see the windmills. I’ve seen windmills. Once you’ve seen four or five, you’re really at the limit of windmill appreciation, and nothing further can be served by seeing more.”

Except the fact that a little fresh air and exercise is good for the creative processes. And he might have been able to explain to Alice any signs that were in Dutch.

Guilt twinged at him when he thought of her. “I don’t fancy her,” he said, sitting down in a wobbly plastic chair and putting his feet up on the rusted railing. The gull, not in the least bit frightened of him, hopped along the railing to peck hopefully at his shoes. “Oh, she’s nice enough to look at. More than nice enough, quite pleasant, as a matter of fact. No, it’s not that I couldn’t fancy her given half the chance, but she’s so . . .” He waved a hand in the air. The gull cocked his head and watched him, clearly expecting treats. “. . . so spontaneous. You didn’t see, but she just asked me out to dinner as if I’d been hoping for it. Which I haven’t. Hell, she was Patrick’s girl! I’d never poach on a friend’s girl. Although Patrick made it quite clear that he’s done with her, so if I wanted to, it would be within my rights to do so.”

He fell silent, absently watching the gull nibble on one shoelace. Why was he there, at that moment? Why hadn’t he gone back home once he found the cabin was occupied? Why had he accepted Alice’s dinner invitation when he had every intention of keeping her at arm’s length?

Dammit, he didn’t need a woman complicating his life, and he certainly didn’t need a spontaneous, erratic woman who evidently acted on every whim, and who took so much joy in simple things.

“She’s never been abroad,” he informed the gull, who attempted to consume his shoelace despite the fact that it was attached to his shoe. “Look how excited she got about seeing a bunch of windmills—poor woman is desperate to soak up all the local color, and she’s stuck with this motley group. I could have gone with them, could have shown her around, let her see the interesting side of Holland rather than a dry, uninteresting visit to a collection of moldy windmills. I could have gone with her today, and written during the night, while she was sleeping.”

The memory of her snoring gently into her pillow the night before made him smile. She certainly had been exhausted, and although he had expected to find her presence in the cabin an irritation, it had been just the opposite—he had written late into the night, strangely comforted by the sounds of her sleeping just a few feet away.

“Right,” he said, shaking his head and getting to his feet. The gull squawked his protest, and flapped his wings. “Those are borderline stalker thoughts. I refuse to be interested in her. She’s on the rebound, and vulnerable, and it would be ungentlemanly to express any sort of carnal thoughts about her. I will simply accompany her to dinner, and then let her go her own way without my attentions.”

He held on to such noble thoughts until the last few hours dragged past, most of which he had spent writing. When he finally did escape his laptop that evening, he found himself on the dock watching as Alice hurried toward him. Her walnut-colored hair trailed after her like a banner, the gauzy material of her dress molding to her body with the gentle caresses of the wind. He suddenly wished he was that wind, then reminded himself of the fact that he wasn’t interested in her, at least not in a physical way.

“Your Majesty!” she bellowed, waving her arm in the air in a manner guaranteed to attract attention. He sighed as several tourists, on the way to and from their own ships, paused to look curiously at him.

“She’s deranged,” he told the nearest group. They nodded and moved on.

Importance of Being Alice, The



First in a new series!

From New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister comes a series about finding your own wonderland—through one roadblock at a time…

Nothing about Alice Wood’s life is normal right now. Her fiancé, Patrick, called off their wedding and relationship only days before their nonrefundable wedding trip. And though a luxurious European river cruise for one is just what she needs, it’s not what she gets…

Due to a horrible misunderstanding, Alice is now cramped in her “romantic” suite with one of Patrick’s friends. Instead of cruising along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers sipping champagne with the love of her life, she’s navigating the waters with a strange—yet mysteriously handsome—British aristocrat.

An author, Elliot is just looking for some alone time to write. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life…and include him in her own happily ever after.

About Katie MacAlister


For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn’t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

Interview and Giveaway with Karen Marie Moning!

Posted 21 January, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Interviews / 196 Comments


Welcome to UTC, Karen! The Fever series is my favorite series so I am thrilled to get the chance to ask you some questions about the newest release, BURNED!

BURNED marks another change in the Fever series where Mac and Barrons are back with a vengeance. How will their presence set the pace for the rest of the series?

It definitely amps up the action and tension of subsequent books because you’re not only getting Dani’s (and insert name:)) journey but Mac & Barrons’ as well.  Combined, the two stories work so much better than they would have otherwise! That was a large part of the reason I reconsidered my original plan of writing three Dani-centered books followed by two Mac & Barrons books.  Running the storylines concurrently was not only necessary, but delivered a more exciting, fast-paced read.

Anyone who has read your books before will know that nothing is quite as it seems and you’re not afraid of taking risks with your writing. I think most readers will be interested to see what will come of Dani in this book. How do you think readers will react to the changes Dani experiences? Why are these changes necessary in Dani’s personal journey?

I hope they love it!  I absolutely adore writing Dani. I love her humor, her youthful exuberance and her determination to live, no matter what.   Not merely survive, but LIVE, out loud and in color. I planted clues in ICED about her pending fate, and I think some readers may already be anticipating it.  With Dani, I explore something that is perhaps more difficult to deal with than losing a sister.  There’s a quote I have taped to my computer that’s applicable: “What you have become is the price you paid for the things you thought you wanted.” Granted, some things were done to Dani without her consent, but there are many things she chose.  What you send out to the Universe, what you ask it for, is usually what you get, and generally not at all how you thought you’d get it. Nothing is free. Everything has a price.  The larger you live, the higher that price may be. But as Dani would say, “Go hard or go the feck home.

With so many other players in the game, such as the Unseelie Princes, Christian, Dancer, the MacKelter twins and even Kat and Sean, how do you keep track of events, characters, etc?

It’s a challenge!  It helped that I wrote a lengthy Fever compendium while I was working on BURNED, revisiting every character and rehashing their significant developments.  That being said, with each character’s POV, it’s like slipping into an old familiar skin. I begin writing, and suddenly I know everything they know, feel everything they feel and it all comes rushing back.

You’ve been sharing more details about the Nine. Apart from Barrons and Ryodan, who will we most likely see more of? Do you have a favorite?

In BURNED, you’ll see a lot more of Ryodan, Lor, Kasteo and Barrons and also learn another name.  In the glossary at the end, you’ll find an interesting rumor about the Nine.  As far as favorites go, there’s only one JZB but Ryodan utterly fascinates me.  I can’t control him anymore than I can control Barrons.  Lor is a blast to write because I get to be as raunchy as I like and indulge my dirty mind, LOL. Kasteo is an onion I can’t wait to peel. That rumor in the glossary has been tantalizing me for years!

What can you tell us about the next book in the series, FEVERBORN?

I’m finally getting to do things with Mac and Dani that I’ve been dying to do.  Mac and Dani are darker, edgier, sexier and more empowered than ever before.  You’ll find out more about the Nine (or should I say the Ten?) It’s coming out like a wild roller-coaster ride.  Everyone is getting into everyone else’s business, as you’d expect with so many Alphas on the page and the resultant chaos is a blast to write!

Thank so much for having us, Karen! Congratulations on the release of BURNED!

Thanks for having me!


It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.MacKayla Lane would do anything to save the home she loves. A gifted sidhe-seer, she’s already fought and defeated the deadly Sinsar Dubh—an ancient book of terrible evil—yet its hold on her has never been stronger.

Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.
