Game of Thrones ⚔ Flashback Friday

To celebrate the return of Game of Thrones, we're flashing back to when I published Hockey Gods, my fantasy/action/adventure book that was inspired by the HBO show and written with my fellow hockey fans in mind.

Dear Reader,

As a hockey fan, I often find myself mentioning the elusive “hockey gods” while watching a game. As in: “The hockey gods had a hand in that short-handed goal” and “Man, the hockey gods sure weren’t smiling on such and such team tonight.” Players pray to them and commentators thank them for trades, goals, etc.

Like many of you, I spent the summer glued to my TV watching Game of Thrones. And then it hit me upside the head—like most of my ideas do—wouldn't it be great to have a story with all of the same enchanting elements, but about hockey?

So I sat down in my writing cave and mixed together elements from my favorite fantasy/action/adventure stories, weaved in some betrayal and sex, threw in a dash of violence with a twist of magic, revolved it all around my favorite sport, and Hockey Gods was born.

I hope you enjoy Nataliya and Calder's adventure as they set out to win the coveted Cup and become the greatest, most revered heroes of all time—the Hockey Gods.

Immortally Yours,
Rachelle Vaughn

Top 5 Sinful Colors Nail Polish List

Hello, I'm Rachelle Vaughn and I'm a nail polish junkie.

After being a diehard Wet n Wild fan (probably because of the super affordable price), I discovered Sinful Colors when they were on sale for 99 cents. As you can tell from my collection below, that discovery has developed into a full-blown obsession...

The clerk at Walgreen's once asked me if I had a salon. In my defense, I was only purchasing a handful of new colors. I guess that's the only way I could justify buying more than one? Come on lady, let a girl have her fun!

There's something exciting about bringing home a new color of your favorite brand. The possibilities are endless. You can ombre it with similar shades you already have, you can match it to your cute new sandals, you can add it as polka dots to a contrasting color.

Even if it doesn't apply the way you wanted it to or clashes with your skin tone, it will still look cute on the shelf with the rest of your collection.

And then there are the colors that you fall in love with. Even though you have dozens of others to wear, you find yourself reaching for those same favorites time and time again. Today, I thought I'd share five of my ultimate faves with you.

I've never used an entire bottle of nail polish before, but I'm dangerously close to doing that with these fabulous colors. The two on the left have a shimmer to them, and I find that helps them to stay on your nails a few days longer than the ones that don't. The purple one in the middle is my signature color and it's usually what I leave on my toes all the time. The baby blue one is too cute because it's the color of my favorite duck's bill (read more about that seemingly strange explanation here), and the dark pink one on the end? Well, I'd never take if off if it weren't for my love of the other four.

So, there ya have it. I've bared my shameful secret, now it's your turn. Do you find yourself adding to your nail polish collection, even when it's *gasp* not on sale? Or do you collect something entirely different? Don't even get me started on lipstick! That's another post for another time. And then there are books and candles and...

It Must Be Love ♥ Nathan & Sarah

Even though she’d never felt love before, she could recognize the feeling she’d been experiencing ever since she first saw him. Love was that tingling feeling she got whenever he was around. Love was the butterflies in her stomach whenever he kissed her. Love was the warm feeling of being whole when he held her close...
