The Blog Has Been Compromised!

Over the past couple of days I have been taking a little break from reading to focus on some of my other hobbies, mainly my knitting and prepping for the arrival of my niece. This morning I logged back into my google/blogger account to find that it had been hacked.  My blog url had been changed (I've since changed it back), my blog name had been changed and several inappropriate posts had been scheduled to post later today, in addition to several non blogger related "surprises."

I have decided that because this account has been compromised that I will be moving my blog to a different account.  I have backed this blog, minus all the bad stuff and will be importing it to the new account after I post this message.  I hate that I basically have to start my blog following over again but I don't want any repeat performances of this ickiness to happen again.  And I like to be safe rather than sorry.

The new blog can be found here.

I Love The Hunger Games AND The Muppets!

In My Mailbox ~ Pre-orders, "Bones", and Robb OH MY!

In my mailbox is hosted by the lovely Story Siren. In my mailbox is our chance to show off the books that we've purchased, downloaded, received for review, got from the library, swapped or however else you obtain your books.

The upside to this meme is there are always a TON of great books out there to be oggled through our computer screens. The downside of this meme is that your wishlist will grow 10 fold.

I've got a couple of giveaways going on right now. One is International (The Guess the Arrival giveaway) and one that is open to US and Canada (100 Follower giveaway).

Don't forget to leave me a link to your IMM so I can check out what you got this week!
Deadly FallWhen his latest case falls on him and his parter—quite literally—Detective Nick Markov knows the destruction of his car by a not-yet-cold body is the least of his worries. The deceased is prominent businessman, Andrew Langan, and suicide is swiftly ruled out after Nick pursues the killers down twenty-seven flights—and loses them.

To his superiors' frustrations, Nick doesn't believe Langan's soon-to-be ex-wife, Augusta, is guilty, even though she has motive, opportunity, no alibi and a shady past. The only reasons Nick has for going against logic are the feeling in his gut and the constriction in his chest.

Augusta is thrust back into an unwanted spotlight and her quiet life shattered. Then things go downhill. In between dodging the media, she confronts muggers, kidnappers and goons better dressed than she. With Nick, who dredges up a past she'd rather forget and feelings she'd rather not acknowledge, Augusta must race to unravel her late husband's secrets before she finds herself skydiving without a parachute.

A White Cougar ChristmasRestless and alone on Christmas Eve, Niki decides it’s time to scratch the itch and heads into a nearby town for some action. Once there, it isn’t sex she finds, but a fight instead, that is until tall, dark and handsome intervenes…

Dean recognizes the stunning but surly Cougar for what she is the minute she gets close. Now it’s up to him to show her just how far a night of passion can go.
Déjà Dead (Temperance Brennan, #1)
     "Fans of TV's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven" People stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs' electrifyingly authentic bestsellers. Her life is devoted to justice -- for those she never even knew.

In the year since Temperance Brennan left behind a shaky marriage in North Carolina, work has often preempted her weekend plans to explore Quebec. When a female corpse is discovered meticulously dismembered and stashed in trash bags, Tempe detects an alarming pattern -- and she plunges into a harrowing search for a killer. But her investigation is about to place those closest to her -- her best friend and her own daughter -- in mortal danger...

Naked in Death (In Death, #1)
It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion.

When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation.

A Sliver Of Shadow (Abby Sinclair, #2)Just when her new life as a TouchStone – a mortal bound to help OtherFolk cross between Faery and human worlds – seems to be settling down, Abby Sinclair is left in charge when the Protectorate, Moira, leaves for the Faery Court. And when the Protectorate’s away…let’s just say things spiral out of control when a spell on Abby backfires and the Faery Queen declares the Doors between their worlds officially closed.

The results are disastrous for both sides: OtherFolk trapped in the mortal world are beginning to fade, while Faerie is on the brink of war with the daemons of Hell. Along with her brooding eleven prince Talivar and sexy incubus Brystion, Abby ventures to the CrossRoads in an attempt to override the Queen’s magic. But nothing in this beautiful, dangerous realm will compare to the discoveries she’s making about her past, her destiny, and what she will sacrifice for those she loves.

Redwood Bend (Virgin River, #18)Katie Malone and her twin boys' trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie is having trouble putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.

Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.

In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.
