Amanda Carlson Guest Post and Giveaway: Jessica’s love letter to Rourke

Amanda Carlson Guest Post and Giveaway: Jessica’s love letter to Rourke Both Jo and I put Amanda Carlson’s debut Full Blooded on our Best of 2012 lists.

What’s harder though is picking the ten heroes from novels published this year to make my annual swoon-worthy list. Last year Eve Silver’s Lokan took top honors and the year before Stacia Kane’s Terrible was causing fevers all over the...
