Ware is a pen name for Colleen Gleason, author of The Gardella Vampire Chronicles.

A Good Ol' Book

I don't even follow stock car racing, and I am tearing through this entertaining history of NASCAR. The focus is on the first fully televised Daytona 500 in 1979, but other fascinating characters and times are highlighted along the way. Sometimes a subtitle says it all. Since this title has everything but the kitchen sink thrown in, I'll let it speak for itself: He crashed me so I crashed him back: the true story of the year the King, Jaws, Earnhardt, and the rest of NASCAR's feudin', fightin', good ol' boys put stock car racing on the map

Mixology 101

Mixed drinks have undergone a massive revival. High end restaurant menus often have artisanal cocktails listed with specific and detailed ingredients. Old drinks have been refashioned and new beverages created by cutting edge bartenders, often called mixologists. Why not try creating these luscious libations in your own home?

Brunch Books

When the snow is falling on a weekend morning, I just want to watch it through the window while relaxing with another cup of coffee, and another, and another. The next step in this scenario is some delicious food to soak up the caffeine. What could be better than a home-cooked breakfast or luxurious brunch?

A Selection of New Romances

If you're looking for the latest romances, here are some books we just received in January 2010!

The Steamy Kitchen

Once again, I am eagerly anticipating a cookbook. Jaden Hair's The steamy kitchen cookbook : 101 Asian recipes simple enough for tonight's dinner promises quick recipes accompanied by colorful illustrations. Perfect for armchair cookery, even if I never make it to the kitchen. While I'm old-fashioned enough to want the book, I can enjoy popping on to her blog in the meantime.

Historical Romances on CD

Put these in your CD player and let the stories, ranging from sweeping epics to romantic suspense, carry you into the past.

Emergency Supplies

As the snow falls, this mom has but one thought. Do I have enough books if tomorrow is declared a snow day? Not for the children, silly. For me. A snow day means no alarm clock and a morning in jammies for the kids and me, so I need to stock up on new romances. Perhaps Shades of midnight by Lara Adrian: set in frozen Alaska, it would make our little snow seem like nothing. Maybe Our little secret by Starr Ambrose, which has a bit of mystery. Or a Regency like The bargain bride by Barbara Metzger. And something for the kids, too.
