Capitivate by Carrie Jones

OK NOW this has gotten interesting... so much better than the first book and its broken away from the twilight kind of references and taken on a life of its own. Zara is really coming into her own, realizing everything around her depends on her, not Nick (the were') who wants to protect her. There's Pixies, Weres, Valkyries and (really?? I didn't see this one coming) Elves. There's an end all war that they think is going to happen, where all the warriors are getting ready for battle. Meanwhile she's dealing with her Pixie dad, more kings coming into the territory and hefty decision to stop being blue or not... GREAT book! Now to read Entice!


Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

Get the Dirt, but Keep it Clean Campaign

We know it, you know it: women love celebrity dirt. This Valentine’s Day, a new mobile campaign from Clorox® Regular-Bleach helps women clean up their own dirt while they enjoy their Hollywood news.
Clorox is sharing quick clean-up tips on how to keep fashionable winter whites white, keep flowers fresh longer and host a Hollywood-style party. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, a girl can use some help. Tips like…
 * Nothing says “I love you” like roses. Want to enjoy those flowers longer than a celebrity romance? Just add ¼ teaspoon of Clorox® Regular-Bleach to each quart of cold water you put in the vase.
 * Got a stain from a heart-shaped chocolate on your favorite whites? It’ll come out in a snap once you add ¾ cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach to the hot water and detergent in your washing machine.
