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.

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2


Most readers remember their first, the first book of their particular genre that they read, whether they enjoyed the book or not.  I have two firsts--the first romance I ever read was a Harlequin Intrigue written by Amanda Stevens.  If you've read my blog before you probably already know this.  The first historical romance I read was Mesmerized by Candace Camp, which was also the first book in her Mad Morelands series.  

I was a senior in high school when this series began and I remember seeing the paperback version of Mesmerized on the shelf at the Target on Queens Blvd (yes, I spent a lot of time on Queens Blvd as a teenager), and was pulled in by the gorgeous cover.  Apparently, that book has had several covers over the last 15 years, but this is the one I remember:


Isn't it pretty?  Of course from the cover I…

Happy Bookaversary! A Review of "Edge of Darkness" by Karen Rose

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


It seems like I've been reading Karen Rose novels my entire life.  I remember the day I came across Count to Ten in the Duane Reade on Queens Blvd.  I'd finished the paperback I brought with me to school that day while sitting in the Dining Hall eating lunch and needed something for the long bus ride home.  I almost didn't buy it because it was $9.99 and I hadn't gotten my financial aid money yet, but the cover copy called to me.  Not even the 500+ page count could scare me away.

I recently learned that Edge of Darkness is Ms. Rose's 20th book and in a strange way, I feel like a proud mama watching her child cross the stage to get their diploma.  I'm just a big ball of happy nostalgia, thinking back to all of the other books I've read by her and hopeful about the ones to come, so befor…

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year--Christmas in September

The day after Labor Day I woke up to an email from my contacts at St. Martin’s Press, inviting me to review six of their upcoming Christmas books, all of which have release dates in early October. For most people, this would probably be a problem — who wants to think about Christmas before Halloween — but for me, I’ve always had a soft spot for the man in the red suit. Even after I stopped believing in the Christ-Myth, I still loved that one holiday. To me, Christmas represents everything that Thanksgiving is supposed to be, but with better music and no obligatory turkey. Some of my favorite books have a Christmas theme and so I jumped at the chance to review those six books (well, five of them because the sixth has to do with cowboys and if there is one sub-genre I just cannot do is cowboys). I read the first two, With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins and Deck the Halls by Donna Alward, fairly quickly, especially since they’re both novellas. Both are being released in a little o…

If you follow me on social media, you'll have seen my posts about this book over the last week.  For the most part, they weren't very positive -- until about 20% into the book, I hated the hero.  If I could have set him on fire, I probably would have.  It was only Ms. Morgan's prose and the fact that I had been looking forward to this book for 6 months that kept me reading.  For once, I am glad I was so wrong about a character.

Have you ever seen the description of a book and known immediately that it was going to be awesome and upon reading it were faced with the possibility that it might actually be better than you originally thought?  For me, that book was Hacking IT by Kimberly Dean.  A female white hat hacker using her skills to uncover a black hat hacker, who has stepped away from his computer and entered the real world?  Um, yes, please.
