#BookTour “The Edge of Death” by Joni Parker

~~~

coverTitle: Edge of Death: Book Two of the Admiralty Archives

Author: Joni Parker

Genre: Urban Fantasy

In this second installment of The Admiralty Archives, the warrior Lady Alexin, the Keeper of the Keys for the Elf realm of Eledon, finds herself exiled to the harsh world of near-future London. Rendered little more than a political pawn by the Elfin Council of Elders to avoid a war with the Rock Elves, she has little choice but to struggle to find her way in this strange new land. Taken under the protection of kindly mentors, Vice Admiral Malcolm Teller of the British Royal Navy and his wife, Alex brings all her skills to the fore as she uncovers a series of deadly plots.

Murder is on everyone’s mind as an underground White Supremacist organization takes aim at Admiral Teller while two wizards, resurrected from death, must kill Alex in order to survive. To make matters worse, the Rock Elves dispatch a hundred assassins from Eledon with their sole mission to bring Lady Alexin to the very… Edge of Death.

Blurb

Once upon a time…

A sister told her brothers, “Eventually, a girl is going to come along and flip your world upside down.”

She was right…

…and Nate was the first to fall.

After saving Remi from a house fire, Nate’s instantly drawn to her…like a moth to a flame.

He should forget about her, the way he does with everyone else he saves.

However, that’s easier said than done when he can’t stop thinking about her or those pretty green eyes. They are almost branded into his brain.

It breaks his rules to visit her. Even if it’s to check she’s okay.

But screw it…Nate’s rules can go and burn.

The woman from the fire is more than he expects; funny, sweet and hot as hell.

Suddenly those careful plans he has in place no longer seem important.

Can Nate create something unique with the woman of his dreams, or will his past, jealous best friend and her crazy ex-boyfriend take the spark that is their attraction and make it disappear in a puff of smoke?

Song Lyric Sunday | “Didn’t We Almost Have It All” – Whitney Houston

Song Lyric Sunday_new

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Did/Didn’t/Do/Don’t/Does/Doesn’t.

~~~~~~~~~~

Calling it show-tune schmaltz and knocking it for it’s big emotional finish, many music critics didn’t care for Didn’t We Almost Have It All, the second single from Whitney Houston’s second album, Whitney, in 1987.

But when has the music-loving public ever listened to a music critic?

The song debuted at number forty-one on the Billboard Hot 100 in August and in just six short weeks, it landed at number one, where it stayed for two consecutive weeks and became Whitney’s fifth consecutive number one song.

Didn’t We Almost Have It All is about wishing for a reunion with someone, and making the case for it by recalling past good times. It was widely speculated that the song is about Houston’s relationship with then NFL star Randall Cunningham.

FUN FACTS:

  •  The single stayed in the Top 40 for 13 weeks, and topped the Adult Contemporary chart for three weeks.
  • Michael Masser, who worked as a producer on the album, wrote this with Will Jennings, a lyricist from East Texas who around this time was also writing for Steve Winwood, B.B. King, The Crusaders and Randy Crawford.
  • Following Houston’s death in 2012, Entertainment Weekly published a list of her 25 best songs and ranked Didn’t We Almost Have it All at 16.

So much for music critics, eh? 😀

The official video for Didn’t We Almost Have It All is a live performance for members of the military in Saratoga Springs, New York. It played in heavy rotation on VH1, MTV, and BET, but is not a favorite of mine. Whitney’s “performance” actually takes away from her singing and doesn’t do the song justice.

I chose a static album cover with a radio version of the song instead.

Enjoy!
