Cum e noul detergent Persil Discs 4 în 1

24 noiembrie 0 Comments
├Än cadrul campaniei BUZZStore ├«mpreun─â cu Persil am avut ocazia s─â testez noul detergent sub form─â de capsule 4 ├«n 1. Mi-au pl─âcut dintotdeauna produsele lor ╚Öi am constatat c─â ╚Öi de data aceasta au fost pe placul meu. 

Cel mai mare avantaj al detergentul este faptul c─â previne supradozarea ma╚Öinii de sp─âlat cu detergent. Este simplu ╚Öi comod de utilizat cu efecte vizibile. 

Detergentul Persil Discs 4 ├«n 1 este disponibil ├«n dou─â variante: pentru rufe albe ╚Öi colorate. Acestea sunt foarte u╚Öor de distins prin culoarea diferit─â a compartimentului din mijloc: roz pentru rufe colorate ╚Öi alb pentru rufe albe. 

Cele patru avantaje ale capsulelor sunt ├«ndep─ârtarea petelor, str─âlucirea, prospe╚Ťimea de lung─â durat─â ╚Öi grija fa╚Ť─â de ╚Ťes─âtur─â. 

├Än toate cazurile ├«n care le-am folosit ├«n ultima lun─â, au ├«ndep─ârtat cu succes inclusiv pete mai vechi ╚Öi rufele au r─âmas cu un miros pl─âcut, f─âr─â s─â mai folosesc alt produs complementar. Totu╚Öi, deoarece prefer ca rufele mele s─â aib─â un miros mai puternic de proasp─ât, voi folosi ├«n continuare balsamul meu obi╚Önuit ╚Öi, eventual, un produs lichid de ├«ndep─ârtare a petelor direct pe zonele cu probleme mai mari/persistente. 

Singura problem─â pe care a╚Ö putea afirma c─â am avut-o a fost la ultima utilizare, c├ónd o capsul─â a fost ├«mpins─â pe u╚Öa ma╚Öinii de sp─âlat ╚Öi a r─âmas blocat─â acolo, iar unul dintre compartimentele ei a r─âmas intact p├ón─â la finalul sp─âl─ârii. Atunci mi-a╚Ö fi dorit s─â ╚Ötiu exact ce con╚Ťine fiecare compartiment, ca s─â ╚Ötiu dac─â a lipsit o parte important─â din acel ciclu de sp─âlare. 

Am d─âruit capsule ╚Öi prietenelor mele, care le-au testat ╚Öi mi-au transmis c─â „spal─â foarte bine” ╚Öi „au un miros mai pl─âcut dec├ót alte capsule pe care le-am ├«ncercat”. Marea majoritate le vor achizi╚Ťiona pe viitor.

Le recomand cu c─âldur─â.

Book Tour & Giveaway: Stolen Princess by Nikki Jefford

22 noiembrie 0 Comments

Stolen Princess
Nikki Jefford
(Royal Conquest Saga #1)
Publication date: November 11th 2018
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, New Adult, Retelling
She sacrificed herself to save her family from poverty…
The ball was only the beginning.
It wasn’t enough to kill my mate, heir to the throne. My obsessive Fae brother-in-law wants the crown. And he wants me ruling by his side.
I thought I was done with romance until a certain pompous elf reappeared in my life at the illustrious Monster Ball. A little teasing led to bruised lips and captured hearts. No one wants Jhaeros and me to be together, not even my favorite sister, Melarue. But she’s a teenager just coming into her elemental powers and discovering boys—the wrong kind—the type I want to shoot arrows through.
My royal in-laws are playing a treacherous game, and my brother-in-law is determined to get what he wants. But this elf princess no longer has a master. I don’t want a crown. I want freedom, family, and the love of a lifetime. But love might be the one thing that destroys us all.
**This book will now include the prequel novella Enemies and Lovers.

Nikki Jefford is an award-winning, bestselling author of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and quirky combinations in-between.
She is a third-generation Alaskan now living in the Pacific Northwest with her Westie, Cosmo, and her French husband, who she wouldn’t trade in for anyone–not even Spike or Mr. Darcy!
When she’s not writing, she’s reading, walking, or out riding her motorcycle, a Honda CB500F, (so long as it’s sunny and warm)!

(reading the last 20% of the book as we're speaking)

One more night in Sweetbell.
I skipped dinner to avoid Father’s scathing tongue and Shalendra’s venomous glare. I’d had adversaries in Faerie, too, but none of them thought as ill of me as my own father and sister.
One more night, I reminded myself.
I couldn’t wait to return home—to settle into a cozy, little cottage with Mel and make up for the time we’d lost together. We could maintain the place ourselves and discuss her elemental magic further. It would give her more time to warm up to Jhaeros and see the wonderful male I’d come to know.
I hated to admit it, but my brother-in-law, Liri, had given me a second chance by poisoning Cirrus. If not for him, I might have been stuck in Faerie forever. Cirrus had been nice enough, and more attentive than I required, but he’d forbidden me from visiting my family. He was all too happy to deliver letters back and forth between the realms, but it hadn’t been enough, and a dark part of me reveled in his death.
“Yes, I did us both a favor,” a husky voice whispered across the room after I’d crawled into bed.
My eyes flew open, and my body tensed, sensing the presence nearby.
His skin was as pale as the moon, his hair white as snow. He’d braided it back into a whiplike tail that followed him as he crept along the edge of my bed.
I tried to sit up, but every bone in my body felt as though it had turned to mashed potatoes. “What are you doing here, Liri?” I demanded.
He smirked. “I am not really here, which is a shame.” He climbed onto my bed, walking on his knees toward me. The mattress made no movement, no dip or shudder. “See?” His smile widened as he made his way toward me until he straddled my limp body.
I narrowed my eyes at the pitiless face above mine. He was beautiful, but I knew better. “Why are you here?” I asked again.
“I’ve come to check on you,” Liri said, stroking the blanket near my hip. I hated the tingle I felt even though he wasn’t really here, wasn’t really touching me. But my brain said otherwise. He smiled coyly, well aware of the fact that he didn’t need to physically touch me for me to feel him.
“I would have come sooner,” he continued in a lazy drawl, “but I’ve been busy.”
“Poisoning more rivals?” I asked in a haughty tone.
Liri’s next smile showed all his teeth, white and gleaming like his hair and skin. If it weren’t for his pointed ears, I might think him a vampire. He was just as heartless.
He stared at my lips, his eyes turning lambent. “My desire for you has not changed, nor my wish to have you as my bride.”
“Nor have my wishes changed,” I fired back. “I’m back in the elven realm where I belong—where I want to be.”
Liri shook his perfectly sculpted face.
“You belong on the highest pedestal, my pet. Nothing short of a kingdom will do for such beauty, such grace, such…fire.” His eyes gleamed. His long, pale fingers faded into the covers on both sides of my thighs, causing my hips to rise toward him. Sure, now my limbs worked. I thought he’d rub it in my face, but his expression brightened with hunger.
“My brother made you a princess, but I, sweet Aerith, will make you a queen.”

Review: The Veiled Threat by Sophia Menesini

22 noiembrie 0 Comments
The Veiled Threat
Sophia Menesini
(The Veiled Duchess #1)
Publication date: June 30th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, LGBTQ+, New Adult, Romance
Captain Shea Lara is the current leader of The Veiled Duchess. The most feared pirate ship in all of Neried. And now, after completing her former mentor’s final score, she’s retiring. Everything seems to be coming to an end… Until a mysterious stranger drags her back into the fold with an offer for a score she can’t refuse. All she has to do is kidnap the crowned princess of the northern Queendom, Princess Joana of Arethusa. The prize is just within reach. But sparks fly as the two women collide. And an obscured threat that could upturn Shea’s entire world storms on the horizon. She’ll face it alone unless she can allow herself the support she needs from old and new allies alike. Something’s coming and Shea is at the center of it.

Sophia Menesini lives in Martinez, CA with her husband, and their two small Chihuahuas, Ziggy and Zeppelin. The Veiled Threat is her first novel and the first book in The Veiled Duchess Series. Sophia is an avid tea connoisseur and lover of Scotland with an unconventional memory for obscure Disney and Broadway song lyrics.
You can find my blog, updates, and other entertainment at my website:

The Veiled Threat was like a journey on the sea - I got an exciting start, a storm of emotions about the story, anger at the way characters acted, and in the end, the sea calmed down when the book ended with me feeling satisfied that I had reached my destination. 

When I read the synopsis, I was hooked. Shea Lara, an elvish woman, is the feared captain of a pirate ship. The story begins with her having captured the Pearl of Lycos, the very treasure her adoptive father asked her to get when he died, before she finally retires. But after a life of adventure and piracy, the impulsive woman can't go to living a normal life, can she? So, understandably, she gets dragged in a plot she doesn't understand and accepts to kidnap the crown princess of Arethusa. 

This mission felt to me, as a reader, too easy to accomplish, everything goes very smoothly and fast. In fact, a lot of the story feels as if every obstacle is very easily conquered, and even when the characters were in grave peril, I didn't fear for them knowing in a few pages they get out of the situation somehow - someone is always in the right place at the right time to save them. 

What I loved was the history of the land and the secondary characters. I felt very emotionally involved with the status of elves within the story, how they are considered a lower race by humans despite being the first beings created by Gods and the fact they are gifted with magic. I rooted for Shea when she did what best she could to save her people, risking it all on a dangerous and foolish mission for the chance to help them somehow. I was sad to read that elves no longer recognize as their own those poor elves who get their ears cut by those who enslave them. 

I yearned to read more about V and the Gods and Goddesses, which I think the next book will do. I think the secondary characters all had interesting back stories and enjoyed reading more and more about them. 

However, I particularly felt annoyed with how the love story develops. Princess Joanna of Arethusa falls in love at first sight with the elvish pirate and vice versa and this makes them act foolish most of the times. Joanna has multiple occasions where she can escape or lie to get away and she doesn't. Shea can't make her mind as to what to do with her - fulfill the mission or try to escape with her crush. The two become the center of each other's universe so fast that I find it hard to digest. Shea even goes so far as to put Joanna before her crew who she claims to be her family. 

Another problem I had with the book is that it lacked proper editing. It was filled with mistakes, some I found very annoying like the incorrect use of the apostrophe in ''let's" or the incorrect spelling of ''your'' and ''you're". I had to re-read a few phrases because words or letters were missing and this should be fixed as soon as possible in a new edition because it takes away from the story. 

I recommend this book to lovers of sea adventures and elves as long as you can look past the spelling errors. It is not suitable for children as it contains some graphic description of sexual actions and violence.

Trenduri toamn─â-iarn─â 2019-2020: love & hate

07 octombrie 0 Comments
Fie c─â e╚Öti pasionat─â de mod─â sau nu, inevitabil tendin╚Ťele sau, mai bine zis, schimbarea lor ├«n timp ├«╚Öi fac sim╚Ťit─â prezen╚Ťa odat─â cu apari╚Ťia noilor colec╚Ťii de ├«mbr─âc─âminte din magazinele fizice sau online. Inten╚Ťionat sau, de ce nu, involuntar, ne ├«mbr─âc─âm dup─â ultimele tendin╚Ťe datorit─â disponibilit─â╚Ťii lor ├«n magazinele de unde facem shopping. Brandurile de fast fashion preiau tendin╚Ťele caselor mari de mod─â ╚Öi le fac disponibile publicului larg, la un pre╚Ť mai accesibil. 

V─âz├óndu-le peste tot, ├«n magazine, online, purtate de oamenii din jurul nostru, cu siguran╚Ť─â c─â exist─â unele trenduri de care ne ├«ndr─âgostim, dar ╚Öi acelea pe care nu mai suport─âm s─â le vedem ├«n fa╚Ťa ochilor. 

Fiind o persoan─â extrem de comod─â atunci c├ónd vine vorba de ├«mbr─âc─âminte, pot s─â spun c─â m─â bucur─â tare mult diversitatea tendin╚Ťelor din acest sezon O noutate ├«n trendurile actuale, preferata mea, este reprezentat─â de bocanci. ­čĺŚ De c├ónd ├«ncepe s─â fie mai frig, obi╚Önuiesc s─â ├«ncal╚Ť botine sau bocanci, de preferin╚Ť─â c├ót mai bine c─âptu╚Öi╚Ťi, mai ales pentru c─â sunt foarte sensibil─â ╚Öi imediat r─âcesc dac─â ├«mi este frig la picioare. Anul acesta, voi putea face asta ╚Öi s─â fiu ├«n acela╚Öi timp ╚Öi ├«n trend, cu o colec╚Ťie mare de bocanci la care pl─ânuiesc s─â mai adaug c├óteva piese care mi-au s─ârit ├«n ochi. De exemplu, mi-au s─ârit ├«n ochi o pereche superb─â de bocanci din piele ├«ntoars─â maro-aurii, cu talp─â anti-alunecare.

M-a cucerit ╚Öi o tendin╚Ť─â nou─â pentru mine, carourile, ├«ndeosebi cele sco╚Ťiene. Am apreciat dintotdeauna aspectul acestora ╚Öi sunt o ├«mp─âtimit─â a serialului ╚Öi c─âr╚Ťilor Outlander (ac╚Ťiunea are loc ├«n Sco╚Ťia secolului XVIII), dar nu am ├«ndr─âznit p├ón─â acum s─â le adopt ├«n stilul meu vestimentar. A╚Ö asorta o fust─â maxi cu un pulover comod ├«ntr-o singur─â culoare ╚Öi ├«nc─âl╚Ť─âminte c─âlduroas─â, c├ót timp nu se instaleaz─â iarna. Ce s─â fac, sunt tare friguroas─â!


Un trend pe care pur ╚Öi simplu nu ├«l pot aprecia, ├«l reprezint─â sacourile teddybear, ├«ns─â ├«n anumite contexte. Da, sunt de acord, plu╚Öurile sunt adorabile, pufoase ╚Öi irezistibile, dar nu pot ├«n╚Ťelege integrarea lor ├«n anumite ╚Ťinute. Purtate ├«n cas─â sau la munte, sau peste un outfit simplu (blue jeans) ╚Öi f─âr─â preten╚Ťii, ├«n activit─â╚Ťi casual, le pot ├«n╚Ťelege ╚Öi nu le-a╚Ö refuza. ├Äns─â, c├ónd le v─âd cuplate cu o rochie lung─â cu imprimeuri, mai ales dac─â se adaug─â ╚Öi o pereche de pantofi sport, ├«mi d─â cu virgul─â, creierul meu ├«╚Öi d─â c├óteva reporniri ╚Öi nu pot dec├ót s─â m─â uit cu ochii mari ╚Öi s─â m─â ├«ntreb: de ce?

Așa nu (părere personală)

A╚Öa de o mie de ori  DAAA!!! (din nou, p─ârere proprie ╚Öi personal─â ­čśů )

Fire╚Öte, nu trebuie s─â uit─âm de tendin╚Ťele pentru b─ârba╚Ťi, unde r─âm├ón ├«n trend culorile intense, ceea ce nu poate dec├ót s─â m─â bucure, r─âm├óne doar s─â ├«mi conving partenerul s─â le ├«mbr─â╚Ťi╚Öeze ├«n ╚Ťinutele lui, mai ales c─â i se potrivesc at├ót de bine. ╚śi dac─â nu sunt neap─ârat o fan─â a hainelor ├«n culori neon, un hanorac ro╚Öu intens e la fel de ├«n trend ╚Öi pl─âcut la ochi, cu o pereche de jean╚Öi dup─â gustul fiec─âruia.

Trendurile sunt importante deoarece pot fi un bun punct de plecare ├«n a descoperi noi stiluri care ne plac. Unele studii arat─â c─â persoanele care se ├«mbrac─â dup─â ultimele tendin╚Ťe ├«n mod─â sunt mai sigure pe sine ╚Öi mai pline de via╚Ť─â. Hainele sunt un mod foarte bun de a te exprima ╚Öi o parte important─â a propriei identit─â╚Ťi. Cu toate acestea, cred c─â ar trebui s─â le urm─âm ╚Ťin├ónd cont de preferin╚Ťele personale, dar ╚Öi de lucrurile importante pentru noi: estetic─â versus confort, culori ╚Öi designuri care ne complimenteaz─â silueta ╚Öi tenul.

Prince Poison Book Blitz & Giveaway

05 octombrie 0 Comments

Prince Poison
Klarissa King
(Gods and Monsters #1)
Publication date: October 1st 2019
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult
“I can tear your throat out right here,” he said, his voice a hushed whisper of threats and spilled blood. “I could kill you a thousand different ways where you sit.”
The nail cut deeper. Blood beaded, then spilled down my front, over my breasts. I choked on a whimper.
“Now tell me everything.”

Few knew Valissa’s secret but it already carried a death toll. One.
If the Gods ever discovered what she was, they would capture and flay her alive.
But in the land of Gods and Monsters, no secret stays hidden for long.
Lissa—drunk on the high of a midnight party that’s rife with mysterious pirates—gets too close to one of the pirates, who turns out to have secrets of his own.
Jasper is no pirate. He is a servent of the Gods. And the moment she touches him, she steals his power.
He kidnaps Lissa, and he’s taking her to one of the most brutal Gods in all the lands … He’s taking her to Prince Poison.
Prince Poison’s mere touch kills and his cruelty is said to stretch beyond even the darkest pits of Lissa’s soul. But when she’s standing in front of this fearsome God, ready to face her gruesome fate, the Prince might see more in her than she ever thought possible.
What could possibly be worse than dying at the hands of an evil God?
Becoming his obsession…
Gods and Monsters will be six books that are novella-length
99¢ for a limited time only!
Or FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

Ava was kissing him—the pirate I’d spent all night wooing.
I saw red.
“He’s mine,” I gritted out.
She was too slow to hear me, so I stomped forward and snatched both of their arms in a vice-like grip, ready to wrench them apart—
It was a mistake. I shouldn’t have touched them—especially not him.
I cried out in surprise.
Ava choked on a scream and stumbled back from the pirate.
But Jasper was no pirate…
His skin was suddenly glowing. Then the glow faltered before it slipped into me.
Stunned, I watched his glow wriggle its way up my bare arm, along my collarbone, then rush down the other arm, where it sank into Ava’s skin.
I stole Jasper’s glow, his essence—his power.
With my touch, I’d dragged his power out from his skin and channelled it through my own body into Ava’s.
Mortiz was right. I should have stayed home. Stayed alive.
Aniel,” whispered Ava, her disbelieving eyes fixed on Jasper.
He looked just as shocked as we did.
But I had no choice other than to snap the hell out of it and get as far away from him as possible.
This was what my mother died to protect me from—
No one can know what I am. A thief of power. No one can know—especially not an aniel, the child of a God.I snatched Ava’s wrist harder than before. Her bones creaked under my grip.

When not writing, Klarissa can be found in bed poring over a great new release, or reluctantly walking her demanding dogs who pretty much run the house.
She is the writer, Isla Jones. Isla uses the pen-name Klarissa for fantasy, while using Isla Jones for her darker, grittier horror works to help separate the styles and genres for her readers.

A venit toamna, acoper─â-mi... locuin╚Ťa frumoas─â cu ceva | FAVI

30 septembrie 0 Comments
A venit toamna, acoper─â-mi inima cu ceva
Locuin╚Ťa frumoas─â cu ceva,
Cu un raft de lumânări parfumate
Sau, mai bine, cu unul de ceai și de cafea.

L─âs├ónd nostalgia versurilor lui Nichita St─ânescu, cu to╚Ťii sim╚Ťim deja prezen╚Ťa toamnei, fie c─â vorbim de temperatura de afar─â, fie de schimbarea obiceiurilor noastre de zi cu zi. Personal, una dintre activit─â╚Ťile mele preferate de toamn─â este s─â citesc sub o p─âturic─â pufoas─â, al─âturi de o can─â de ceai, neap─ârat ├«ndulcit cu miere de salc├óm, ╚Öi ├«nconjurat─â de c─âldura ╚Öi magia unei lum├ón─âri parfumate arz├ónd ├«n apropiere.

A╚Öa cum ne preg─âtim garderoba de anotimpul nou ╚Öi r─âcoros, ╚Öi locuin╚Ťa noastr─â trece printr-o u╚Öoar─â metamorfoz─â. ├Än acest sens, e foarte de ajutor s─â folosim un motor de c─âutare pentru mobil─â. cuprinde peste 100 de magazine online ╚Öi fizice la un singur loc, astfel ├«nc├ót c─âutarea noastr─â s─â fie c├ót mai u╚Öoar─â ╚Öi eficient─â. 

Pentru a crea o atmosfer─â prietenoas─â ╚Öi cosy de toamn─â, eu m-am g├óndit s─â ├«ncep cu un frumos raft de perete din lemn masiv de pin, care m─â duce cu g├óndul la o caban─â c─âlduroas─â ╚Öi cititul la c─âldura sobei. Pe el, a╚Ö expune colec╚Ťia mea ├«n cre╚Ötere de lum├ón─âri parfumate, care mai de care mai colorat─â ╚Öi mai ├«mbietoare.

De╚Öi mai este cale p├ón─â la Cr─âciun, eu ├«ncep de toamna s─â m─â ├«nconjur de lumini╚Ťe calde. Le folosesc mai ales pe fundalul videoclurilor mele de pe YouTube, dar ╚Öi ├«n fotografiile cu c─âr╚Ťi. ├Än englez─â li se spune fairylights, ╚Öi nu e de mirare, dat fiind c─â au o magie aparte, de z├ón─â sau licurici. M─â refer, bine├«n╚Ťeles la cele cu lumin─â cald─â, nu la cele multicolore, specifice pomului de Cr─âciun. Am g─âsit pe o sumedenie de astfel de lumini, dar ce mi-a atras ├«n mod deosebit aten╚Ťia este o sticl─â decorativ─â, care are ├«n interior o mic─â ghirland─â de lumini galbene, calde, parc─â dau impresia unor licurici sau z├óne. Cred c─â nimic nu poate fi mai cosy dec├ót at├ót!

Pentru a completa atmosfera c─âlduroas─â, perfect─â pentru citit, am g─âsit ╚Öi o lum├ónare foarte tomnatic─â, av├ónd miros de dovleac, chiar la timp pentru s─ârb─âtoarea Halloween, pe care o s─ârb─âtoresc citind c─âr╚Ťi cu mister sau horror. Lum├ón─ârile de la Yankee Candle sunt printre preferatele mele, ele fiind foarte puternic mirositoare, ceea ce e ideal pentru ca mirosul s─â poat─â fi resim╚Ťit atunci c├ónd lum├ónarea este aprins─â. 

╚śi pentru c─â tot suntem la acest capitol, nu poate lipsi un ceainic nou, a╚Öa c─â am optat pentru un ceainic ceramic cochet, cu un aspect mai vintage, ideal pentru a te sim╚Ťi desprins din atmosfera unui roman britanic. Nu uita s─â ridici degetul mic c├ónd bei din ce╚Öcu╚Ťa de ceai.

Acum că m-am făcut comodă, tot ce lipsește este o călduroasă păturică de lână, în culori de toamnă, sub care să citesc sau să mă bucur de ultimul episod apărut din serialul meu preferat. Ah, asta da toamnă!

Oricare ar fi modul t─âu de a-╚Ťi preg─âti locuin╚Ťa de toamn─â, ├«╚Ťi poate fi un real ajutor. G─âse╚Öti pe site orice, de la mobil─â, la decora╚Ťiuni, textile, obiecte de iluminat ╚Öi orice altceva ai avea nevoie pentru c─âminul t─âu. Toate sunt organizate frumos, pe categorii ╚Öi subcategorii, astfel ├«nc├ót s─â po╚Ťi g─âsi u╚Öor inspira╚Ťie pentru a-╚Ťi crea locuin╚Ťa visurilor tale. Cuprinz├ónd peste 100 de magazine fizice ╚Öi online, pentru o c─âutare ampl─â, rapid─â ╚Öi eficient─â, nu ╚Ötiu de ce ai mai c─âuta ├«n alt─â parte. 

O toamn─â minunat─â, dragilor! V─â a╚Ötept ├«n comentarii s─â ├«mi scrie╚Ťi cum v─â preg─âti╚Ťi voi de toamn─â.

To Kill a Fae 
by Jamie A. Waters (The Dragon Portal Series, #1) 
Publication date: September 26th 2019 
Genres: Adult, Fantasy 

The darkness holds more than just secrets… Marked for death, Sabine escaped from her home and fled to a human city. But the Wild Hunt will never give up. For more than a decade, she’s kept her head down and avoided talking about her past. Even the best-laid plans eventually fall apart… When a charismatic stranger arrives, Sabine is unwittingly drawn to him and his power. Keeping her distance is nearly impossible, especially after a life debt is called due and she’s tasked with helping him steal a rare artifact. In order to break the magical barriers protecting the item and save her companions, Sabine will be forced to drop her glamour and reveal her true identity. The Fae aren’t the only ones hunting her. And the most dangerous monsters aren’t always confined to the dark.

despre autor

Jamie A. Waters is an award-winning, fantasy and science-fiction writer. Her first novel was a winner of the Readers' Favorite Award in Science-Fiction/Fantasy Romance and the CIPA EVVY Award in Science-Fiction. 

Jamie currently resides in Florida with two neurotic dogs who enjoy stealing socks. When she's not pursuing her passion of writing, she's usually trying to learn new and interesting random things (like how to pick locks or use the self-cleaning feature of the oven without setting off the fire alarm). In her downtime, she enjoys reading on her Kindle, playing computer games, painting, or acting as a referee between the dragons and fairies currently at war inside her closet. 

You can learn more by visiting:

Sabine tensed, scanning the dead-end alleyway for a place to hide. If they climbed the trellis again, they’d be spotted. It was too risky to try to use her magic to shroud them from view, but if the guards turned around, they’d be in clear view. It was unlikely the guards would trouble her too much, but Dax would kill Malek if he found out he’d accompanied her. Not even her mark on Malek’s wrist would stop him.
Yanking off her heavy cloak, she tied it around her waist to cover her weapons and give the appearance she wore a dress. With her hair unbraided and covering her ears, it might be enough for the guards to overlook them. At the very least, they might not recognize her right away and would assume they were two lovers engaging in a quick tryst in the alley. Malek’s expression became quizzical, but she ignored him and gripped his shirt tightly.
“Kiss me,” she whispered urgently, aware they only had seconds to pull off this ruse.
She pulled him toward her just as footsteps rapidly approached. Awareness filled his eyes, and he lowered his head, pressing his lips against hers. She put her arms around his neck, listening for the guards.
Malek wrapped his arms around her, drawing her even closer. Focus was critical, but his nearness affected all of her senses. Oh, this was a very bad idea. The taste of his lips and the scent of his skin were heady, threatening to overwhelm her from pure sensation. Despite the danger of the approaching guards, he took his time, tasting and exploring her mouth. Malek did have magic, but she couldn’t tell how much because it was tightly controlled and suppressed.
She whimpered and softened against his body, unable to resist him. Part of her was tempted to claim she was merely playing a part, but she wanted this. She wanted him. Unlocking his magic wouldn’t be difficult, but she wasn’t willing to force him into revealing his secrets before he was ready. This kiss was only a hint of what could be between them, and she suspected this brief taste of him was never going to be enough.

Madeline Little este sigur─â c─â va deveni un mare om de ╚Ötiin╚Ť─â, precum bunicul ei, un faimosbiolog.

Kit esen╚Ťial pentru vacan╚Ť─â de la Sensiblu

08 septembrie 0 Comments
├Än vara aceasta am testat mai multe produse ├«n cadrul campaniei Buzz Sensiblu ├«n colaborare cu BuzzStore Rom├ónia

Primul dintre ele este crema solar─â L'Erbolario, un produs cu factor de protec╚Ťie SPF30 de 75 ml. Aceast─â crem─â este potrivit─â pentru fa╚Ť─â ╚Öi ├«ntregul corp, fiind recomandat─â ╚Öi pentru pielea sensibil─â, chiar ╚Öi la copii. Con╚Ťine uleiuri naturale, morcov, susan ╚Öi unt de shea. Mi-a pl─âcut mirosul acestei creme, ├«ns─â are o formul─â destul de gras─â pentru aplicarea pe ten. Personal, am ├«nt├ómpinat probleme la aplicarea pe fa╚Ť─â deoarece odat─â ie╚Öit─â ├«n soare, chiar ╚Öi pe un drum scurt p├ón─â la autobuz, ├«mi transpira foarte tare fa╚Ťa ╚Öi sim╚Ťeam cum ├«mi curge produsul pe fa╚Ť─â, ceea ce nu mi s-a ├«nt├ómplat cu alte creme solare pentru fa╚Ť─â. De asemenea, nu ├«mi place formularea ,,ideal─â pentru fa╚Ť─â ╚Öi s├óni" de pe eticheta produsului, deoarece se poate ├«n╚Ťelege c─â ├«ncurajeaz─â expunerea s├ónilor la soare, ├«n condi╚Ťiile ├«n care cancerul mamar este destul de frecvent, din p─âcate. Altfel, e un produs interesant, pl─âcut pe piele, probabil ar putea fi ok ╚Öi pentru fa╚Ť─â la persoanele care au un ten mai uscat.

Spray-ul Dr. Hart ├«mpotriva ╚Ť├ón╚Ťarilor ╚Öi c─âpu╚Öelor este un repelent pentru insecte care con╚Ťine ingrediente active naturale, ceea ce ├«l face potrivit ╚Öi pentru copiii peste trei luni. Ingredientul activ al produsului este Citrodiolul, un amestec de dioli extra╚Öi din eucalipt (Eucaliptus citrodiola), av├ónd efect repelent ├«mpotriva insectelor, exist├ónd ╚Öi studii realizate pe acest ingredient, dar ╚Öi pe spray, care atest─â acest efect. Personal, l-am folosit de c├óteva ori, ├«ns─â locurile unde am fost erau deja stropite, a╚Öa c─â nu existau ╚Ť├ón╚Ťari de care s─â m─â protejeze. De╚Öi nu pot afirma dac─â este eficient sau nu, neav├ónd ocazia ├«nc─â, pot spune c─â are un miros pl─âcut de eucalipt, ╚Öi las─â o senza╚Ťie r─âcoroas─â pe piele. Aceast─â senza╚Ťie de r─âcoare persist─â, e o senza╚Ťie cel pu╚Ťin interesant─â, dar poate fi nepl─âcut─â pentru unele persoane. De asemenea, locul unde a fost aplicat produsul r─âm├óne lipicios. Cu siguran╚Ť─â voi lua produsul cu mine ├«n concediul de luna aceasta, cu speran╚Ťa c─â dac─â sunt insecte, ├«╚Öi va dovedi eficien╚Ťa. 

╚śampoanele uscate nu sunt o inven╚Ťie recent─â, dar este pentru prima dat─â c├ónd am testat unul. Am primit ╚Öamponul uscat Batiste, varianta original─â clasic─â, ├«n ambalaj mic de c─âl─âtorie. P─ârul meu se murd─âre╚Öte destul de greu, are un aspect curat chiar ╚Öi dup─â c├óteva zile de la sp─âlarea obi╚Önuit─â, astfel ├«nc├ót nu am sim╚Ťit nevoia s─â am├ón sp─âlarea lui (deobicei la 5-7 zile) cu un astfel de produs, dar am sperat c─â se va dovedi eficient ├«n eventualitatea cazurilor ├«n care se ├«ntrevede o ie╚Öire spontan─â ╚Öi nu am timp s─â fac o baie (uscatul dureaz─â foarte mult deoarece am un p─âr des cu fir gros). Nu mi-a pl─âcut deloc acest produs, nici mie ╚Öi nici prietenului meu (care l-a ├«ncercat just for fun) nu ni s-a p─ârut c─â ar fi o diferen╚Ť─â semnificativ─â dup─â aplicarea lui. Mie mi s-a p─ârut anevoios procesul de sp─âlare uscat─â, av├ónd at├óta p─âr de dat la o parte pentru a ajunge la r─âd─âcini. Chiar ╚Öi dup─â piept─ânat, dup─â ce am eliminat excesul de produs, mi s-a p─ârut c─â nu a f─âcut nimic, dec├ót s─â ├«mi provoace o m├ónc─ârime la nivelul scalpului. Am plecat la Mall ╚Öi abia am a╚Öteptat s─â m─â re├«ntorc acas─â ╚Öi s─â ├«l sp─âl cu ap─â ╚Öi ╚Öamponul meu obi╚Önuit. Nu recomand.

Produsul meu preferat din campanie a fost deodorantul roll on Dr. organic cu rodie. Acesta con╚Ťine ingrediente de origine organic─â, vitamine ╚Öi minerale. Este perfect pentru pielea sensibil─â, eu l-am folosit chiar dup─â epilare f─âr─â probleme, iar mirosul este minunat. Este unisex, de altfel prietenul meu ador─â s─â ├«l foloseasc─â. Eu nu am observat s─â fie mai eficient dec├ót deodorantele folosite anterior, dar eu nici nu transpir foarte mult, sau dac─â transpir, aproape orice deodorant ├«mi acoper─â mirosul cu brio. ├Äns─â prietenul meu spune c─â e singurul produs cu care a f─âcut activitate fizic─â intens─â (mers cu bicicleta urmat de c─â╚Ť─âr─âri) f─âr─â s─â miroas─â nepl─âcut la final. Ca s─â ├«l citez ,,cu alte deodorante se amestec─â mirosul lor cu cel al transpira╚Ťiei, cu ─âsta miroase doar a rodie ╚Öi nu se mai simte altceva."

├Än mare, ideea kitului esen╚Ťial pentru vacan╚Ť─â de la Sensiblu este bun─â, cu toate c─â a╚Ö mai ad─âuga ╚Öi alte produse cosmetice, precum sprayuri pentru arsuri solare sau o past─â de din╚Ťi. ├Än mod clar a╚Ö scoate ╚Öamponul uscat de pe list─â deoarece nu mi se pare un produs bun ╚Öi e, p├ón─â la urm─â, doar o am├ónare a inevitabilului sp─âlat pe cap clasic. P├ón─â la urm─â, depinde de personalitatea fiec─âruia ╚Öi tipul vacan╚Ťei ├«n care mergi, care produse sunt pur ╚Öi simplu indinspensabile. Oricare ar fi acestea, eu v─â doresc un concediu minunat ╚Öi lipsit de probleme ╚Öi griji!
