Video of the Day--Her Fake Fiancé

I'm in the middle of reading The Woman Who Lived Again by Thomasine Rappold (available December 8th), which is about a woman who convinces a virtual stranger to pretend to be her fiancé and escort her to a friend's wedding because she can't face her ex and his new bride-to-be without having someone on her arm.  Obviously, since this is a romance novel, they go from being fake engaged to falling in love with each other.  As I started reading it, I kept thinking about Mac and Felecia from General Hospital.  They did the whole fake fiancé thing back in 1998.  I was still 11 when those episodes aired, but I loved the whole concept.

Today's video of the day is from their wedding (from 1998 not 2013 when they remarried after the whole Frisco fiasco at the Nurse's Ball).  One of the things I loved about that storyline was that it was supposed to be a double wedding (with Lucy and Kevin) and Mac and Felecia were going to call theirs off before actually going through with the ceremony.  In the end, there was only one set of "I do's" said (In the middle of the ceremony, it came out that Lucy had caused Serena's accident by siphoning gas from Eve's car because she was jealous of Eve and Scotty's relationship--Lucy would eventually marry Scotty despite maiming his daughter and Eve would marry Kevin before they all divorced and Lucy somehow ended up with Kevin all over again).

For any of my readers that are old school GH fans, look carefully and you'll see original recipe Jerry Jacks (before he was a hostage taking, town poisoning sociopath played by Sebastian Roche) as well as V, who I think just disappeared one day.  I really liked her and her role in the Ned/Alexis/Jax/Chloe debacle in 1999.  I miss old school GH--back before Guza ruined every single woman not named Carly or Sam and bowed down to the alter that was The Sopranos.

All you Elizabeth haters: Guza's the reason she's the way she is.  Before he became head writer in 2000, she was a much different character.  Unfortunately, the character assassination apparently continued under Carlivati.  Such a shame.

  1. I enjoyed watching this clip. I forgot about that wedding. Look how how they all looked. Nicholas before he got all pumped up & Bobbi before her plastic surgery. Elizabeth used to be so sweet and now they made her into a lying witch.

Throwback Review: The Dream Trilogy by Nora Roberts

There are some books that stick with you no matter how long it has been since you first read them.  For me, the Dream Trilogy has always been in the back of my head.  I probably read them a good 15 years ago and the last time was a good 10 years back.  As a matter of fact, that trilogy was part of the first round of books I purchased when I got my first kindle for my 24th birthday (I never actually read it after buying the digital version; I guess I just needed to know that I could read them if I wanted.


The first book of the trilogy, Daring to Dream, was released in 1996 when I was just 10 years old and more concerned with passing math (I did, but not without many a night of struggling to remember what the E in PEMDAS meant) than I was with the goings on of fictional characters inside the pages of a book.  In fact, if I read at all during that time period it was to get a free pan pizza through Pizza Hut and the Book It! program.  I've mentioned this a few times before, but I act…

Review of "Bay of Sighs" by Nora Roberts

A couple of months ago, I volunteered to read Stars of Fortune, the first book in Nora Roberts's Guardian Trilogy for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge because ParaNoras are my crack.  If they were illegal, I'd be serving a life sentence for possession/intent to sell a controlled substance.  Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of book 1, but I'd already requested Bay of Sighs, so I felt the need to read it too.  Plus, I liked the idea of a mermaid heroine -- one whose name was not Ariel.  I really wish I resisted reading this.  It was awful.  It took everything I hated about SoF and magnified it to the level that I wasn't able to finish it.

Annika is a mermaid, sent to "the shore up above" to stop an evil goddess from getting the Stars of Fortune.  Together with the five other guardians, she must search for the stars and protect them.  Afterwards, she must return to the sea, which wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for Sawyer King...

Review of "Sleepless in Manhattan" by Sarah Morgan

I bought this book with the intention of reading it on a plane from San Francisco to New York City last weekend.  Of course I read about 30% before even stepping foot onto the plane and once I was actually on it, I read maybe 5%, listening to the most recent Smart Bitches podcast and watching a few episodes of Charmed on Netflix because I had an awful night sleep the evening prior and was too tired to read.  I finally sat down to read it Sunday and Monday night.

Paige Walker has lived a sheltered life, brought low by a heart condition that had her in and out of the hospital until her late teens, but now in her late 20's she's finally healthy and happy.  She loves her life in Manhattan.  She'd felt stifled in her hometown of Puffin Island and as soon as she was able she moved to New York with her best friends, Eva and Frankie, as well as her older brother, Matt.  On the verge of a promotion at work, she figures she's got it all, but then the rug is pulled out from unde…
