"Dammit, man! I'm a doctor not a physicist!" (Macoy is awesome!)
Then our TV took a shit! It's the second time this problem has occurred. The first time was about 4 years ago. We paid to have it fixed at the tune of nearly 400 bucks. This time however we just decided rather than putting that money out again to have it fixed we'd just upgrade. My husband is just tickled to have an LCD now. We had one of those big screens from about 10 years ago. It was a fabulous tv during it's time, and still would be if it hadn't broke. We downgraded a tad in size, but it's perfect. We had to get a stand for it, and that's where I get excited! I could care less about the TV. I love the new piece of furniture in my livingroom :).
I did get a few good books this week! One of them was waiting for me when I got home last weekend. Tortured by Amanda McIntyre! I read it a few days ago. I'll post my review closer to its release date of August 4th. But I will say, I think for all of you who like a good dose of Medieval story-telling then you'd want to consider adding this one to your list! Amanda will be stopping by here on her "25 blogs in 25 days" Tortured Tour on August 27th. I believe she'll be giving away a copy!
I also got Taming the Fire by Sydney Croft (Love the ACRO series!), and In Over Her Head by Judi Fennell, thanks to a 25% off your entire order at Borders!
Acro Series Book Four
POWER. PLEASURE. DANGER. IT DOESN’T GET ANY HOTTER THAN THIS.
He came to the underground London club for a night of extreme sex play with the enigmatic “Mistress Rik”. But the Special Agent known as Trance is really on a search-and-rescue mission to keep her alive. Part predator, Ulrika “Rik” Jaegar possesses feral powers that make her a danger to others–and to herself. That’s why the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives (ACRO) wants to recruit her to their side….To do so, Trance will have to pull off the impossible: capture and control Rik, both woman and beast.
On the run from the deadly agency that changed her into a pleasure-seeking shape shifter, Rik uses sex to rein in her own raging desires. Operating on pure instinct, she trusts no one…especially the magnificent alpha male with the power to seduce her into submission. An undercover agent with unique hypnotic gifts, Trance is surprised by his instinct to hold Rik and keep her safe — but he has a job to do. And as he hunts her down, as Rik and Trance are thrust into the ultimate game of domination and submission, they’ll enter a place where surrender is their sole hope of survival — and the only thing that can tame the wild beast in both of them…

When Erica Peck, one terrified-of-the-ocean marina owner, finds herself at the bottom of the sea conversing with a Mer man named Reel, she thinks she's died and gone to her own version of Hell. When the Oceanic Council demands she and Reel retrieve a lost cache of diamonds from the resident sea monster in return for their lives, she knows she's died and gone to Hell.
When they escape the monster and end up on a deserted island, she amends her opinion - she's died and gone to Heaven. But when Reel sacrifices himself to allow her to return to her world, she realizes that, Heaven or Hell, with Reel, she's In Over Her Head.
