All about Tall, Dark, and Divine by Jenna Bennett

Tall, Dark, and Divine, Jenna Bennett

Preorder at Amazon

Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe–or want–anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.

Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.

Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

Paranormal romance has long been a genre grounded in heavy world-building and dark, tortured heroes. We love those traditional paranormals at Entangled and have an amazing selection under our Select and Edge imprints. Book series like Rosalie Lario’s Demons of Infernum, Tiffany Allee’s Files from the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency books, and Nina Croft’s brand new Order novels are just a few of Entangled’s offerings.

But if there’s one thing we know about paranormal romance, it’s that it breaks rules. All kinds of rules. And that’s where the Covet imprint comes in. Covets are firmly grounded in the contemporary world, but each novel brings in supernatural twists, breaking the contemporary and paranormal rules, alike.

Covets have all the sexiness, emotion, and happily ever after that readers have come to expect and love from Entangled. With our launch this month, we’re bringing five titles to the forefront of this rule-breaking imprint. Greek gods, witches, demons, shifters, vampires … there’s something for everyone.

To find out more about our launch titles, chat with authors, participate in special events, and to find out what books you’ll be coveting next, visit

the Entangled website, follow us on Twitter, and LIKE our Facebook page. We have lots of exciting events coming up, and Round Two of our launch in May!

Review: Tall, Dark, and Divine. Plus win a Galley Copy of GD!

I am so fortunate to be interviewing Jenna Bennett this week, author of TALL, DARK, AND DIVINE, one of the amazing books revealed this week by Covet, an Entangled imprint!

This book was a really fun read. Jenna’s take on Greek mythology is certainly one-of-a-kind! There was an overall playful tone that I adored, and the way the main character of Eros looks at Annie is the way every woman wants a man to look at her! Jenna also places a much-needed-in-fiction focus on how Eros loves Annie’s appearance, extra fifteen pounds and all, and her use of romance, erotic scenes, and description is… well, divine.

If I wanted one more thing from this story, it would be a little bit more intensity to Annie’s reaction when she finally learns who Eros really is. The way Zeus is integrated into the story was glossed over a little too quickly for my tastes, but I loved his character and the way he spoke, and his beautifully tense marriage with Hera.

All in all, it was a great story that I give 4.5 stars, and will definitely add to my re-read list. I can’t wait to see other books from Jenna, and I highly recommend you pick this one up if you’re looking for a lighthearted romance with modern-day Greek Gods! I think Annie’s character was the most lovable, and I want her to bake me some of those damn cookies. I seriously ate two handfuls of dry Captain Crunch while I was reading it because I had no good desserts in the house.

And I’m SO lucky to get to interview Jenna this Friday! Stay tuned for that… with a sense of humor like hers in the book, I can’t wait to share her answers. :-)

SO….. who wants to win a Galley copy of GILDED DESTINY, my Vesper novella?? I have ten copies up for giveaway on Goodreads! Please click and check it out, it’s a super-easy entry and it’s only going on for a week. Hope to see you on Goodreads!

Today I am so excited to participate in the cover reveal for Entangled Publishing’s COVET imprint. These books look awesome, and the covers are HOT HOT HOT, so please enjoy and be sure to check these books out when they release on April 21!

Gone With The Wolf, Kristin Miller
CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder has given up the search for his one true love. When he discovers that she’s a secretary in his company, Drake’s primal instincts kick into overdrive.
What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard…
Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers.
Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense…
When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life.

The Awakening: Aidan, Abby Niles
Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse?
After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life?
Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?


The Demon’s Song, Kendra Leigh Castle
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. At least, that’s how it seems to Sofia Rivera when her attempt to help a friend ends in a blood-soaked confrontation with creatures that aren’t even supposed to exist. With a group of rogue vampires determined not to leave a single witness to their violence hot on her heels, Sofia finds herself saddled with an immortal bodyguard—Phenex, the fallen Angel of Song.  While the vampire king roots out the corruption threatening to take down his underworld kingdom, Sofia will have to deal with a fallen angel whose dark beauty is often at odds with his ornery nature. Slowly, Sofia and Phenex give in to the strange attraction neither can deny. And as the darkness closes in around them, Phenex begins to wonder whether even the wickedest Fallen might find his own happy ending…and his heart.

Deceiving the Witch Next Door, Melissa Bourbon Ramirez
Down-on-her-luck witch Storie Bell never thought the biggest threat to her future would be Reid Malone, the very man she’d run from years before. After striking it rich in Texas shale, he’s back in town, and he seems hell-bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. A witch trying to blend in in a small southern town is hard enough, but now he’s seriously testing her strict No Kissing Mortal Men policy. But even witches don’t have a spell for that.
Reid knows there’s much more to Storie than meets the eye. But right now he has only one mission: to infiltrate her shop so he can snatch the elusive secret ingredient to his father’s million-dollar moonshine recipe. Once he does, he can go back to the city and get out of his small hometown, a place in which he has no future.
But as the days go by, he can’t help falling for Storie in every way…and every encounter brings him closer to finding out what happens when you try to deceive a witch.
