Today’s book…

One woman who’s sworn never to love again.

Two men who can’t help but desire her.

And the magic and passion that binds them together…

Haunted by a traumatic attack when she was eighteen, Lilya Orensdaughter has become a courtesan in the Temple of Dreams, determined to never again lose control. But she will do anything for Byron Andropov, the man who nursed her back to health all those years ago—and who now wants her to help his friend Alek Chaikoveii come to terms with the powerful magick he possesses.

In Alek, Lilya finds a kindred spirit. The attraction between them is immediate, and soon Lilya surrenders to nights of unimaginable ecstasy. But she can’t forget Byron, who’s concealed his feelings for Lilya because he believed she would never love again. As tensions escalate between the two men who are vying for Lilya’s heart, Lilya finds herself torn between her desire for the man who saved her, and the man whose soul resembles her own—only to discover that in the world of unrestrained passion there are no boundaries. If only you’re willing to give up control…

  1. I liked Harry Potter

  2. I’ve gotta get out more. The only new movie I saw in 2011 was the second half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I love the visual effects!

  3. I loved Horrible Bosses! I laughed and laughed all through the movie, it was fantastic.

  4. I liked Super 8 and Harry Potter wrapped a great run of movies.

  5. Oh that’s an easy one… Breaking Dawn: part 1

    Even stood in line for about 4 hours to go to the midnight showing (a double feature of it and Eclipse), did not get home tell 2am, and still went to work at 8 the next morning 😉
