Beard of the Day

I personally think Viggo Mortensen is one of the hottest actors around. Just look at that scruff. He is an alpha male all the way. Yay for alphas!

I have read quite a few books on my new kindle. However, I don't feel like writing any reviews since they were okay, not stellar. I am having a problem with the "light" BDSM erotica stories. My feeling is that most of the authors jumping into this genre are using the BDSM as a titillation device, without really understanding the lifestyle and emotional and physical ramifications of what that means. I need to read a few historicals to "cleanse my palate"-- hee hee. :)

I just downloaded Christine Feehan's newest Ghostwalker book, Street Game. I'm hoping it will bust me out of my funk. In the meantime, I am finally back to work on Sweet Magik, the second of the Klaus Brothers Series. It's great to be working on a new book. Sweet Inspiration continues to climb the charts of the e-bookstores. It is currently #2 at eBookwise and Readerwise, and #3 at Fictionwise and eReader (on the romance bestseller lists). Huge thanks to everyone who has supported me and this debut novel!

Stay warm,
Penelope

Oooo Viggo looks SO good here! Nice choice!

Very nice - love Viggo! (for whatever reason I like him better "scruffy" than cleaned up)

Don't you love the Kindle? I wasn't sure I wanted one until I got it and now I love it!

Hi Juju! Viggo has incredible sex appeal...I could just eat him up!

Hi Patti! OMG! I am so in love with my kindle it is scary. I stare at it adoringly. I just downloaded my first full-length book on it--Street Game-- I can't wait to read it. I cannot fit any more books in the basement, so it's a good thing I have the kindle now!

I read Street Game a couple of days ago and it was really good. But I felt like something was missing from it. I also read Jayne Ann Krentz's book Fired Up and I loved it. I think out of the two I enjoyed Fired Up a little bit better.

Penelope said...

Hi Sherry! I was just wondering about Fired Up...I love her Arcane Society books. Thanks for the recommendation...I am off to order it for the kindle!

Viggo is so hot. Thank you for sharing the picture. It really sounds like you are enjoying the Kindle, although your even easier access to books is only going to feed the dangerous addiction. I'm waiting for my Nook to arrive so we can go out for coffee and sit and read books on our e-readers together and be companionably anti-social.

Hey Michelle....I am very interested to hear what you think about the Nook. We're going to have to attend E-Readers Anonymous Meetings...believe me.
