Guest post with Milly Taiden


Today I'm happy to have the rocking Milly Taiden on my blog. She here to share her top five romantic movies! Take it away, Milly.

Milly: Let's talk romance. Those movies that make us sigh, weep, smile, or hug our other half like they just gave us the best orgasm this side of last week. Yeah, those movies lol. Let's begin.

5. Sweet Home Alabama. This is a fun romantic comedy. Coming back home with super sexy hunk number one only to find she’s still married to hunky guy number two…oh what is a girl to do? I say keep em both. But since this is a romance she gave one up. All I can say this movie was heartwarming, fun and I loved the dialogue. So fun!

4. What Happens in Vegas. Oh this movie was such fun! I loved the combination of Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz playing the evil opposites who end up getting to know each other so well and trying to dislike each other so much, they can’t help but fall for the other person. Sometimes in life, we are struggling against the attraction until we can do nothing but accept it. Great movie.

3. A Walk to Remember. What a movie. Seriously heartwarming and romantic and sad. Can I just say that is the kind of romance that makes a woman slap her man over the head and say “why can’t you be more romantic like that?” Yeah I love those kinds of movies LOL.

2. The Proposal. Has the be one of my all time favorites. Sandra Bullock rocked as a woman who'd forgotten what it's like to have a family and people to care for you. One hot assistant. A few days alone to really get to know each other. Ryan Reynolds. Nekkid. Need I say more? Lol.

1. The Notebook. A lot of people disliked this movie. I'm sorry you guys but I loved it. The commitment that man had for his wife made it absolutely worth watching.  A love that transcends a memory eating illness is just amazing. No one in life is perfect, but if you can find someone to look past those imperfections to the beauty within, you have a winner.



Blurb: When Raine Bowe volunteers for a sleep study for the extra cash, she didn't expect to wake in a lab or to be victimized by a mad scientist. She escapes with one objective--to find someone strong enough to wage war with the evil growing inside her.

Ryder Storm is a man with a reputation--the bad boy of his own universe. He doesn't take prisoners, won't give into a sweet smile, and doesn't cut his pack an inch of slack. He knows the desperate woman in his bar is his the moment he lays eyes on her. He'll give her anything she wants, except the one thing she's begging for. Death.

Raine enlists Ryder’s help to unravel the mystery surrounding the hours she lost in the lab and to help tame the beast inside her. In their search for answers, the road will lead them to a twisted experiment involving shifters, humans, and the creation of the ultimate Alpha. He's ready for the adventure and she's ready for her answers. Neither are ready for the lust that calls down from the mating moon. But a wolf knows its mate, and an alpha will not stop until he or she gets what they want.




Excerpt: "Run!
     The loud hammering of Raine’s heart drowned out the single word bouncing around her mind—and the dogs barking at her back. Their angry growls faded the faster she ran. A little further. Just a little more, and she’d be home free.
     Trees swooshed past her with every step she took away from the small isolated facility. She ignored the hospital gown swinging against her legs and the blood dripping down her arms from the torn IVs. Barefoot, the rocks bit into the soles of her feet. None of that mattered. She had to survive. Her life depended on getting as far away from that place as possible.
     Inhaling the comforting scent of mud, trees, and the wild, she barely heard the barking over the breeze rustling through the willows with each step she put between them. At any other time, she’d have dissected her reaction to the forest. Not now. And she didn’t stop. No way was she getting captured again without a fight.
     Air beat in and out of her lungs in tandem with the pounding of her feet on the rocky ground. Moonlight filtered through the branches overhead, highlighting her path. Her hair caught on the tree limbs, snatching at the loose strands. Some of the hanging vines prodded her arms and stabbed her sides. Her breath hitched, and she missed a step, lurching forward. Something inside her tightened. Her arms swayed and her core muscles flexed. Before she face planted, everything balanced out. She blinked. More scared now than she’d ever been in her life. Something controlled her body and it had reflexes far superior to a normal human.

     Moisture gathered in her eyes, blurring her vision. She blinked it away. Panic would only get her caught.
     Raine glanced at the moon. It had shifted twice—now in front of her, rather than behind. She stilled. The trees rustled with the wind. An owl hooted. But she still didn’t hear the annoying bay of the dogs.
     Ragged breaths beat hard in her ears. A horn’s blare sounded in the distance. Fear and excitement gave her a burst of energy. Cars meant help. She urged her body faster.
     Street lights peeked through the trees. Air panted out of her chest. A second car honked, speeding past another. She was almost there. So close. Thank god. She was going to make it.
     Slowing down at the edge of a hill, she darted glances around the now quiet street. No people milled about or walked around. Nothing. A big store, one she recognized from the one time she’d gotten lost in the shadier side of town, sat a block to her right. The sudden quiet made sense now. Nothing good happened this far south of Tempting Eats. It was known as the dead side. The thought alone gave her chills. Women went missing…all the time. That had been enough to keep her uptown in suburbia-peace-nation.
     She glanced around, searching for anyone who might be waiting for her or even any of the dangerous men her neighbors said roamed the streets, but there was nothing, not a single being. Her feet hit the pavement in a rush. Once across the street, she hid inside a dark alley. The stench of rotting food and piss coated the air with a thick blanket of disease and chaos. Her throat convulsed, and the acidic taste of bile hit the back of her tongue.
     Retreating, she took several steps toward the end of the street to a small motel. Its yellow, neon Vacancy sign blinked on and off with a buzz. A man’s yell pushed her to slink into the dark. The sound came from the shadows in front of the motel.

  3. Great new series to try! You give me Fever ... Loved this story! 5 star review links below...
    Favorite passage: Damn but the man was sexy. Not just the body, or the award-winning tongue, it was the way he carried himself. What he'd said was true. He was definitely the

    alpha. No other animal had that type of commanding presence.
