Yes, I wrote the lyrics. But no, they do not have actual music that goes along with them. One of my readers said she was going to record some, but I haven't heard it yet. So for now it's up to readers' imagination. :)(less)

“He was smoking hot. As in H-O-T-T, hott. I’d never understood until that moment why girls insisted on adding an extra t. This guy was extra-t-worthy.”
Wendy Higgins, Sweet Evil

“I know I’m just a human woman, but so help me, if anything happens to her while she’s with you—”
“I assure you she’ll be in good hands.”
“Mm-hm, that’s part of what I’m worried about.” She pointed at his hands. “Hands off, mister.”
Wendy Higgins, Sweet Evil

“Good gracious, he was sexy—a word that had not existed in my personal vocabulary until that moment. This guy was sexy like it was his job or something.”
Wendy Higgins, Sweet Evil

Topics Mentioning This Author

“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”
Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

“You're leaving me, Rainbow Girl.”
Karen Marie Moning, Dreamfever

“Although it may not seem like it, this isn’t a story about darkness. It’s about light. Kahlil Gibran says Your joy can fill you only as deeply your sorrow has carved you. If you’ve never tasted bitterness, sweet is just another pleasant flavor on your tongue. One day I’m going to hold a lot of joy.”
Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

“I never thought about it before, but I'm proud to be human. We're ever so flawed. We're frail, confused, violent, and we struggle with so many issues. But all in all, I'm proud to be a Daughter of Man.”

#2 Thank you for Kaidan and Anna and the rest of the gang
#3 Keep up the great work.


Sweet Evil was amazing, Sweet Peril was even more amazing (if that's possible) and I think Goodreads needs more stars because I think Sweet Reckoning wont have enough stars on here to rate it.

Do you think you might ever release novellas for Blake, Ginger, Marna, Blake and Kaidan. I would love to read from their POV and would like to know them a little bit better.

Anyways Thanks again,
You are awesome :)

Sweet Peril was so incredibly genius and perfect and wonderful and thoughtful and OHMYGOSH KAI!

For the time being my thoughts are much to crazed to make an actual review of the darn perfect book, but I will speak to you once my fangirl heart settles down.

Until then ... I think I'm ready for a second read of Sweet Peril ;)
