Driven Snow
(The Pennymaker Tales, #2)
by Tara Lain


Young Snowden “Snow” Reynaldi is brilliant, beautiful, and alone. Though he’s shy, weird, and tolerated by the NorCal University students because he’s a renowned whiz at chess and helps put the school on the map, that doesn’t keep him from dreaming of the object of his desires, Riley Prince, championship quarterback.

When Riley needs a physics’ tutor, Snow jumps at the chance, and their relationship heats up—but Riley has to come out of the jock closet to get anywhere. Meanwhile, Snow’s one true friend and mentor, Professor Kingsley, marries a woman who secretly wants the chess tournament glory and money for herself. Soon after, the professor collapses and Snow finds himself underwater—literally. In a car!

Seven frat brothers from Grimm College rescue Snow just in time for his life to get even worse, and Snow discovers the one relationship he always wanted slipping away. With evil looming at every turn, Snow must survive if only to prove he’s the fairest of them all and regain the trust of his handsome prince.

“There are rumors here and there, but I’m a big guy, and nobody says it to my face.”

Snow shrugged. “So why change now? You’re a senior. You can do what you want next year.”

Riley leaned his head back against the couch. “Because it’s chickenshit, like I said. People are always going to give gay guys crap when they don’t know anyone who’s gay. I can change that. A lot of people think they know me. I mean, look at you. Chess champion. Much bigger than I’ll ever be. But you never claim to be anything but gay.”

“I’m so weird, nobody’s surprised.”

“No, you’re not. You show the world that gay guys can be brilliant geniuses and beautiful. I can show them that gay guys can be big and strong and well coordinated. We all have a part to play.” He chuckled. “I have to confess, I practiced that speech, but I’m hoping it’s true.”

Snow’s heart beat so loud he could barely hear. Could this really be happening? “Umm, so you said you have enough experience to teach me.” He stared at his moo shu.

Riley sat up and got a very serious expression. “You see, Mr. Reynaldi, it’s all a matter of physics. Your quantum physics says that electrons can be in two places at the same time.” He leaned forward and pulled Snow across his lap, somehow managing to not spill any Chinese food in the process. “It’s like my tongue can be in my mouth—” He ran his soft tongue across Snow’s barely parted lips. “—and inside your mouth at the same time.” He insinuated inside and kissed Snow slowly and thoroughly. So that’s how it feels. Invasive and completing at once.

Riley pulled his lips back from the kiss but kept them close to Snow’s so his breath warmed Snow’s wet mouth. “And just as particles can be waves and waves particles, so I can feel completely relaxed and completely excited simultaneously.”

Snow grinned. “I knew physics could be fun, but this is far beyond my expectations.”

“You didn’t have enough faith in your subject matter.”

“Clearly.” He smiled and whispered, “What happens now?”

“First, I want to know if you’re interested in me, or am I just living in fantasyland?”

Snow’s eyes widened. “Oh, did I not show enough interest?”

Riley laughed. “Yes, but I don’t want to take anything for granted. You’re too special.”

My, that moo shu is interesting. “I’ve been dreaming about you ever since the first time I saw you. I didn’t think you were gay, so I never even hoped it could be more than a dream.”

Riley caressed Snow’s hair. “Think of all the time we wasted dreaming about each other.”

“In quantum physics, particles in contact become quantumly entangled. Perhaps we simply needed more time for the entangling to occur.” Snow smiled softly. This had to be a dream.

Tempt Me Tuesday #141 by Mad Hatter Reads

Tempt Me Tuesday  
Happy Thanksgiving a few days early! Hopefully, you’ll have some time off this week to spend with family and friends…and maybe a new temptation or two! How are you going to spend your Thanksgiving? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Beyond the Grave by C.J. Archer

The Ministry of Curiosities, #3
Beyond The Grave (The Ministry of Curiosities Book 3)At the request of Lady Harcourt, Charlie and Lincoln begin searching for her missing stepson. Still recovering from her ordeal at the hands of a diabolical villain, Charlie is supposed to be resting. But resting is dull, so she throws herself into the task at hand, much to Lincoln's frustration.
The search leads them down a dark path littered with family secrets and titillating scandal. Using her necromancy to expose those secrets, Charlie unwittingly raises a spirit with the power to override her control. With a dead body on the loose in London, Charlie and Lincoln must work together to send it back before havoc is unleashed, and the committee members find out.
Because if they do, they will have more ammunition in their fight to send Charlie away from her home and everyone she loves.

Bound in Darkness by Jacquelyn Frank

Immortal Brothers, #4
Bound in Darkness (Immortal Brothers, #4)From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the captivating conclusion to the sizzling series featuring four immortal warrior brothers who love as hard as they fight.
After drinking from the fountain of immortality along with his brothers, Maxum is condemned by the gods to be entombed in the earth. Even though he has now been granted a reprieve by day, each night he is buried anew, his rock-hard body immobilized, his bones crushed by the pressure. When he emerges, his body heals, but his spirit remains scarred. There is only one way for Maxum to be completely free: He must kill the god who cursed him.
The task will require tremendous power, so Maxum embarks on a quest to gather talismans to equip him for the battle. Then an earthy wench seduces him and steals one of his magical amulets, but he catches her. Finding herself between a rock and a hard place, she strikes a bargain. The beautiful and alluring Airianne is a skilled thief—and she can help him in his acquisition of the talismans. Will this stealthy seductress also try to steal his heart—or will their boldness end up getting them both buried?

Desert Wolf by Heather Long

Wolves of Willow Bend, #8
Desert Wolf (Wolves of Willow Bend, #8)Cassius, Alpha of Sutter Butte, leads the most ruthless and dangerous pack in the United States. A pack comprised of misfits who didn’t fit in their previous packs, cast offs discarded by their packs and forgotten wolves who rose to create a pack more than a century before it utter defiance of the order of the day. Sometimes pitiless and cruel, he wants more for his people than a yearly bloodbath as they fight for a new place, a better spot in the pecking order. To change his pack, means to change himself and he will find rebellion on all sides, not the least of which is his own defiant heart.
Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent, lives a cherished, beloved life in the center of her pack, a delicate and hard won balance. Though she is not the only Omega, she is the most experienced with the tremors of pack upset when power shifts from Alpha to Alpha. When her Alpha approaches her about Sutter Butte’s request, Sovvan considers the matter for several long months. While she might hold within her the key to helping the Sutter Butte Alpha, the undertaking could very well kill her.
Accompanied by a single Hound, Sovvan begins a journey to help Cassius rebuild the foundation of his pack, but first she will have to transform him.

Dragon Storm by Katie MacAlister

Black Dragons, #2
Dragon Storm (Black Dragons, #2)TURN ON THE CHARM
According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he's now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep—until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon's dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman...
Bee isn't sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he's grown to love with fierce intensity.

Feel the Burn by G.A. Aiken

Dragon Kin, #8
Feel the Burn (Dragon Kin, #8)War makes strange bedfellows.
I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know that better than most, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman.
Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce—and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am, and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you’re with.

Legacies Reborn by Pittacus Lore

Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files, #13
Legacies Reborn (Lorien Legacies: I am Number Four: The Lost Files, #13)In this game-changing 100-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series, the Mogadorian invasion of Earth has begun and one teenager's life will be forever changed.
At first, Daniela Morales thought the spaceship attacking New York City on the television was just part of some science fiction movie. Then the horrible truth became clear: it was happening in real life. Aliens do exist, and they were invading the planet.
Unable to reach her mother, Daniela makes it her mission to get to her mom's job downtown to find her. But with the city under fire, trying to make it from her apartment in Harlem to the Financial District proves nearly impossible—until Daniela makes an incredible discovery. When a squad of Mogs get the jump on her, she is somehow able to throw them across the street, using telekinesis. Daniela doesn't know where this power came from or why she suddenly has it, but she is sure as hell going to use it. Aliens are tearing up her city and she'll destroy every last one of them that gets in her way. But when she comes face-to-face with the Garde, will she be a friend or a foe?

Queen by Aimee Carter

The Blackcoat Rebellion, #3
Queen (The Blackcoat Rebellion #3)Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton's niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person's rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear...and ultimately, between life and death.
To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton's secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she's loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty's survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.

Wild Cat by Christine Feehan

Leopard People, #8
Wild Cat (Leopard People, #8)In the new Leopard novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cat’s Lair and Leopard’s Prey, passions explode like wildfire when a young woman’s feral instincts are ignited by a man who’s too dangerous not to desire…
A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather’s friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard-bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah’s reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.
Then Siena discovers the truth of her Leopard heritage, of the secrets in her grandfather’s inner circle, and the sinister plot of revenge that has put her in jeopardy. When Siena’s grandfather is assassinated, she realizes the only man she can trust is Elijah. Now as her Leopard rises from within, Siena and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival—but a desire so raw and wild it may be the only thing that can save them.

Witch Glitch by Robyn Peterman

Magic and Mayhem, #2
Witch Glitch (Magic and Mayhem, #2)Witches and glitches and testicle obsessed cats… Oh my.
One dilemma down and approximately 74,876,283 to go. I think being the Shifter Whisperer is hard—or Shifter Wanker as I enjoy referring to my new job—but healing wounded Shifters is easy compared to finding and eliminating the lurking freaking evil.
Throw in a ghost, a potentially explosive ex-cellmate, a long lost dad and a smokin’ hot werewolf who’s convinced he’s my mate, and suddenly it’s party time—from hell.
And this is my mission?
Life is getting messy and I don’t do messy. With feelings I didn’t know I was capable of having, and the word love being thrown around like a football on Super Bowl Sunday, poofing away with a magical twitch of my nose is becoming more appealing by the moment.
But to show I’m not a weenie, I’m gonna pull up my big girl panties and hurl some fireballs at Baba Yaga's older than dirt warlock posse if they don’t pony up the info I need. If I don’t burn the town of Assjacket down while trying to save it, I’m donning my red cape and playing who’s the big bad wolf with a for real wolf who’s hotter than any fireball.
I just pray to the Goddess my heart doesn’t get burned in the process.

A Wilde Interview with Author Jenn Stark

Welcome, Jenn!

Today, we are thrilled to have Jenn Stark with us! Jenn Stark is the author of the new Immortal Vegas series. After reading a snippet of her series in the Twelve Shades of Midnight anthology, I become enthralled with the characters and story. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Stark decided to publish more books in the series.

Dana: Jenn, thank you for stopping by!
Thank you, Dana! You’ve been so amazing since the very first time we’ve chatted, and I’m beyond excited to be here today on your blog… and on Occult Day as well! I mean, seriously, how cool is that?
Dana:  A-mazing! 

Dana: Jenn could you tell readers about your Immortal Vegas series?
Jenn: Absolutely! Immortal Vegas is an Urban Fantasy series about a Tarot-reading magical artifacts hunter, Sara Wilde, and her adventures to find relics for the Arcana Council, a group of larger-than-life demigods based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Sara’s not just treasure hunting for fun, though: she uses the money she makes on the arcane black market to help protect psychic children both from dark practitioners and from other enemies of the “Connected”, or individuals and creatures with psychic and magical abilities.
The Arcana Council is based in Las Vegas, which is why the series is called “Immortal Vegas,” but Sara’s travels take her all over the world—from Rio de Janeiro to Siberia to Paris and Rome… and soon, even to Atlantis!
Of course, now that I think about it, I think Sara should visit Puerto Rico, too!

Dana: Absolutely!  Home of the Piña Colada, baby! We would have a blast!

Dana: Which of these whispered to you first, cajoled you into writing the Immortal Vegas series: The Magician, Sara Wilde, or the Tarot cards?
Jenn: oooo, what a great question! Honestly, I would say it was the Magician. The very first incarnation of his story was a tale called BLACK JACK, and the titular character in that story is very similar to the current Magician. Sara back then still read cards, but she wasn’t nearly as intense as the current Sara is. J

Dana: The Tarot deck is such an interesting mold to your series. Did you know how your story was going to revolve around the tarot cards from the very beginning in the fashion they are being presented or did they magically appear in your main character's hands?
Jenn: I knew Tarot would play an important part, but its role in the stories has evolved over time. Sara’s on-the-fly use of the cards has been so much fun to develop, and I like the fact that she doesn’t really do traditional reads… who has time to do a full Celtic Cross reading when you are running from bad guys? I also knew that I’d have a council of Tarot-wielding sorcerers, but the Arcana Council takes on additional dimensions with each new story. One member of the council I haven’t introduced yet (but will soon!) is Death. I’m very excited with where that introduction is going!
Dana:  *jumping up and down* Goodie, goodie!

Dana: One of the first things that drew me to your work were the exotic locations and the in your face action-adventure sequences. Each of your books in the series have these amazing opening scenes with an epic Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft adventure flavor to them. Have you visited the locations mentioned in your work? Did you always know you wanted to begin each book with an artifact retrieval mission?
Jenn: I have visited some of the locations (I’ve been to the section of Paris I describe, and to the Vatican in Rome), but not others (I haven’t been to Lake Baikal in Siberia, or to Rio de Janeiro). And the artifact retrieval mission to open the books crystallized for me with WILDE CARD. I wanted something to show why Sara is the chosen Finder for the Arcana Council (because she’s really good at what she does!) but do it in a really fun way. Which is why she’s waking up dead people in WILDE CARD and crashing a naked orgy in ONE WILDE NIGHT. J With an occupation like “magical artifacts finder,” you just never know where the job will take you.

Dana: Sara is a tenacious, kick- ass heroine. Her character and powers have developed in so many interesting manners. I find myself surprised each time something new is revealed about her. How different is she from other female characters you have written about in the past?
Jenn: Sara has a true wound from her childhood/teen years that shapes everything she does. She’s the first character I’ve written that I’ve been able to explore beyond one book, and that has been completely fascinating for me. All my other characters have had their story told in a single arc, but Sara’s journey is more complex than that. Because she isn’t fully aware of everything in her past (much of which will come to light in book 3, BORN TO BE WILDE), she’s also learning alongside the reader, which helps keep things interesting as well.

Dana: I’ve become a bit obsessive with The Magician aka Armaeus. I find his heritage beautifully intriguing and refreshing. In my mind’s eye I kind of see him as a cross between Sendhil Ramamurthy and Olivier Martinez. He is such an alpha male character and it brings this strong sexual undercurrent to the story. Was making him so dang hot and dreamy intentional or did he evolve as you wrote the story? 
Jenn: OMG, I completely love your comps! When I first envisioned the Magician, I viewed him as a youngish, superhot incarnation of Naveen Andrews—definitely exotic, definitely sensual, in keeping with his French-Egyptian background. And as to his sexual undercurrent, there’s a particular brand of magic based on, well, sex—and I’ve always known that that would be Armaeus’s power base. It absolutely makes him fun to write, but also compelling because he has wounds as well that can only be healed with the help of another person. And only healed in a particular way…
Dana: *drooling* Yes!  Naveen Andrews  is wonderful too.

Dana: Many of cards have been revealed to us in the series so far? Will we meet the Joker soon?
Jenn: You have already! The Joker of our modern playing deck is the ONLY Major Arcana card that made the leap from the Tarot decks to today’s cards. All of the Minor Arcana made it – The cups became hearts, the wands became clubs, the pentacles became diamonds and the swords became spades. But only the Fool, or Trump 0 of the Major Arcana deck, made it to today’s cards, as the Joker. The Fool is Simon, and he’s mentioned in GETTING WILDE and has a more involved role in WILDE CARD.
So far, we’ve met the following members of the Arcana Council: The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, and The Devil… and we’ve heard about The Emperor, though we haven’t met him yet. (But we will soon!).

Dana:  How interesting!!! Simon is a hoot! Can't wait for more.  While reading your series I would look up information on the Tarot Decks.  I find it  fascinating. 

Dana: Do you know how many books there will be in the series?
Jenn:  I honestly don’t—I decided when I put out book 1 that I would wait to see what reader response was. I knew I would have at least three books beyond the prequel novella ONE WILDE NIGHT—those books are GETTING WILDE, WILDE CARD and BORN TO BE WILDE. However, I thought that might be as far as the series went, if readers didn’t care for Sara’s adventures.
So far the series seems to be finding readers, which absolutely thrills me! As a result I’ll have at least one more book, WICKED AND WILDE. After that, we’ll have to consult the cards! I like to think that as long as there is magic in the world, Sara will have a job to do. :)

Dana: Have you written other books or series?
I have! Under the pen name Jennifer McGowan, I also write Young Adult historical romance about royal spies in Elizabethan England. Those are published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, and the series starts with MAID OF SECRETS. In addition, I write New Adult contemporary romance as Jennifer Chance, with a series published by Random House/Loveswept (the Rule Breakers series, starting with ROCK IT) and an Indie-published series (the modern royals Gowns & Crowns series, starting with COURTED). So, I stay busy! But I truly love to write, so that works out.
Dana:  I had no idea you had so many.  I'm taking notes so I can stalk you work right after this interview. 

Here are some fun rapid fire

 questions for you?

• Your personal theme song? 
“The Pretender” by Foo Fighters

• Chocolate or vanilla? 
Mmmmm, Chocolate…

• Favorite cartoon? 
Thundarr the Barbarian. Because I rock it 80’s style.
OMG mine too!  I wanted to be his magical Princess girlfriend!  *sigh*

• Guilty Pleasure? 
Reading about or watching the NFL when I should be working.

• If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
 “…And Miles to Go Before I Sleep.” (part of one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost)

• Does your computer have a name?

 It does not! Poor little computer. 

• Favorite food? 

Pretty much anything Mexican. Which I haven’t eaten in SO LONG since I seem to be perpetually dieting

• If you could go on a road trip with any author (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go? 
I would go on a trip with J.R.R. Tolkien, straight to Middle Earth.

Thank you so much for 
stopping over Jenn! 
We can’t wait to have you back and to read more in the
Immortal Vegas series!!!

Thank you! And Happy Occult Day!
