books that sucker you in: the character (again)

So, not only do I have a thing for characters who are veterinarians, but apparently I can’t resist me a psychic.

Yeah. Go figure.

Especially given that anyone reading my mind would get me in to some serious shit.

About Kris

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

  1. Apparently I can't resist me some Bay City Paranormal psychic by the name of Sam.

  2. Cecile says:

    Okay, I really do not want anyone in my mind.. cuz iz be a scary place!
    that's all im sazing

    hope your day is going great kris!

  3. You just long to lay all your dirty secrets out and roll in them! πŸ˜‰

    I personally can't resist me a lonely confused Dom.

  4. If someone were able to read your mind, they might need immediate medical attention.

    I've come to realize I can't resist a billionaire alpha male who spent time in the military and now runs a mega-corp and knows what his lover wants better than the lover does.

  5. Chris says:

    LMAO at Wren's comment! Did you just read Force of Law by any chance?

    Kris: Was there a particular book that led you to that realization?

  6. Chris says:

    Well, crap, I have to comment again, even though I have nothing else to add, simply because of the veri word:


    Like street cred, but involving toes?

  7. Tam says:

    I would not want someone who can read every detail of my mind nor would I want to read someone's mind but maybe just being able to tell if they are lying generally, or upset or have a connection during sex (continual feedback loop baby) would be good.

    I don't mind paranormal psychics, but not sure about a contemporary psychic a la Kreskin or that spoon bendy guy. That would be kind of hokey I think.

  8. Chris: Maybe.

    Chris: I thought of toe crud.

    Tam: Spoon bending – we don't need that. Zipper opening – now that's a skill!

  9. Chris says:

    Wren: Ewww! I was thinking toe/street cred because I got a pedicure over lunch. πŸ™‚

  10. Sorry. When you get a pedicure, they clean the crud off your toes!

  11. Jenre says:

    When it's done well a psychic who can read minds is quite sexy. I love it when they try reeeeeeaaaaally hard not to read the other hero's mind but just can't help themselves.

  12. Eyre says:

    Does toecred have anything to do with unprotected toe sex?

    My veri word is candies. I guess that's a sign that I need to go look at some mancandy.

  13. Ingrid says:

    Kris you are not the only one, I like them as well.

  14. hdsmith says:

    Not all the psychic is mind reading – the Psycops they got mad skilz.

    I love the Law (only the girls call him Laurie.

    How about the Omega wolfs in JL Langleys With or Without series. The scene where Remi heals the little boy with juvenile arthritis..lovelrly.

    Veri – macker. If kissing is the macker the kisser or the kissee.

  15. Kris says:

    KC: I saw that you've been on a BCP reading kick. I think I read them one after the other too, although I had a little hissy fit a couple of books in because Bo pissed me off.

    Cecile: I feel the same. Happy to read about it, but in RL?? NO!

    You too, hun.

    Miranda: “You just long to lay all your dirty secrets out and roll in them! ;)”

    Now there's an image. LOL.

    Aww, the lonely Dom searching for his perfect sub. This might be one of mine too. I appear to have a lot of them. πŸ™‚

  16. Chris says:

    Kris: Maybe Wren or KZ could write you a book that incorporated all of your theme fascinations…

  17. I'd need a spreadsheet of all of them before I could even begin!

  18. Kris says:

    Wren: “If someone were able to read your mind, they might need immediate medical attention.”

    You've been hanging around KZ too much lately. Just sayin'.

    You have a very specific unable to resist character there. I'm disappointed that you didn't go into details about clothes and the car he drives though.

    Chris: It was State of Mind by Libby Drew.

    Sorry mate. When I think of toe cred, I think of toe crud too. I got a pedi on Friday. πŸ™‚

    Tam: The sex feedback loop is what it's all about, baby. Tell me who in their right might (Get it?! I kill me.) wouldn't be interested in that.

  19. Dress shirt. Black trousers.

    Lamborghini Diablo.

  20. Is there a problem with hanging around KZ?

  21. Kris says:

    Jen: Yes! That's one of the reasons why I liked ZAM's The Long Road Home so much. It's still my absolute fave of hers and a regular reread.

    Eyre: “Does toecred have anything to do with unprotected toe sex?”

    Do you have a foot fetish that you're trying to be subtle about, Eyre? πŸ˜›

    Hey, have I told you my Eyre's tumblr story?

    Ingrid: You and me, hun. We're a team. πŸ™‚

  22. Kris says:

    Heidi: You're right. I like all the different variations of having psychic abilities and who cannot help but love Vic and Remi. That scene when Remi is playing/healing the little boy… it's so touching.

    “Veri – macker. If kissing is the macker the kisser or the kissee.”

    The kisser definitely. If he was the kissee, he would be the mackee. πŸ˜‰

    Chris: “Maybe Wren or KZ could write you a book that incorporated all of your theme fascinations…”

    That would be awesome. Are you gonna negotiate on my behalf?

    Wren: “I'd need a spreadsheet of all of them before I could even begin!”

    And? What's your point?

    “Dress shirt. Black trousers. Lamborghini Diablo.”

    See, I knew you'd already though of this stuff.

    “Is there a problem with hanging around KZ?”

    Apparently just for you. *kiss, kiss*

  23. Eyre says:

    You have a story about my Tumblr? Whatever happened, it wasn't my fault!

  24. Chris says:

    Kris: Put together the spreadsheet. πŸ˜€

    And do share the tumblr story – did it involve the BB??

  25. Tam says:

    I wanna hear the tumblr story.

  26. Kris says:

    Are you guys following me around this morning or what??

    Since you asked…

    So, most of you know that I work for myself from home, right? Hence my awesome procrastination skillz.

    Last week I had someone come to my 'office' for a meeting, which meant I had to de-gayerotica my computer work space.

    It wasn't until she and I were sitting at my desk and looking at the computer screen that I realised that we were looking straight at a mini-screen shot of that day's pics from Eyre's tumblr.

    If you use Google Chrome you will know they do this mini-screen shot thing of the sites you most. We've established that I'm a perve. Move on, people.

    Anyway that day one of the most prominent pics on the site – and I mean that literally – was the one of the uncut cock wearing sunglasses.

    Yeah, you could still see it.

    Yeah, I'm praying to God that the lady didn't.

    It's really, really not that funny.

    Ok, it kind of is now, but at the time…

  27. Tam says:

    Ha. Safari does that as well. I use safari on the desk top computer and I'm sometimes worried the kid will have a go at it although she uses Chrome. I don't have a problem with her seeing the stuff on my Tumblr but usually the dashboard also shows up which is way more graphic. I try to log-out so she can't accidentally sign in. LOL

    I'm sure she never noticed.

  28. Eyre says:

    Oh, poor Kris!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she didn't notice or that if she did notice, she appreciated the humor!

    You can set Chrome so that it just lists the page titles and doesn't show the pics.

  29. Oh my God. Of all the pix!

  30. Chris says:

    Classy! Oh yeah.

    I think it's time you did something to shake up the BB's world.

  31. Eyre says:

    I suppose you could always say it was art–a satire on society's prudish oppression of sexuality?

  32. Or just a modern-day Mr. Snuffleupagus.

  33. Kris says:

    Tam: Yeah. Let's hope that she's not as big of a perve as some of us.


    “I suppose you could always say it was art–a satire on society's prudish oppression of sexuality?”

    *writes that down just in case*

    Wren: I'm never watching Sesame Street ever again.

    Chris: “Classy! Oh yeah.”

    That's very reassuring, Chris. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

  34. Emilie says:

    I like a well-written story about psychics. I read a lot of paranormal romance, and was a big X-Men fan back in the day.

    Just the other day, Kris called me a perve because my LJ post once again included an observation about how good Christian Mann of Verbotene Liebe looks in jodhpurs and riding boots. Takes one to know one, huh, Kris?

  35. Kassa says:

    everyone loves psychics.

    “I can see you have a big dick… come to daddy”

  36. Kris says:

    Chris: 😦

    Emilie: “Takes one to know one, huh, Kris?”

    Maybe. πŸ˜›

    “I like a well-written story about psychics.”

    Me too… obviously. I really like the ones that deal meaningfully with what it's like to have psychic abilities and the impact that it has on a relationship. An excellent example of this is PsyCop. Now, I feel like rereading them all. πŸ™‚

    Kassa: Hun, I'm pretty sure that's not xray vision you're talking about. LOL.

  37. K. Z. Snow says:

    1. Why does my name always come up when I'm not here?

    2. Do y'all realize just how many books Wren and I have lined up to write? She'd have to swear off nookie for months, and we all know that's not going to happen.

    3. An uncut penis wearing sunglasses? Seriously? Did it have toecred?

    4. Loved the LOL dog!

    5. What was the question again? Was there a question?

    6. Don't you have a contest going on or something?

  38. Chris says:

    Kris! Quick! Torquere just released a new psychic book for you!

  39. Kris says:


    1. Because.

    2. Good point. Wren, you better prepare yourself.


    4. I know. So cool.

    5. You expect me to remember??

    6. Nope. Want me to come up with something new? I can do that. *hehehe*

    Chris: God damned enabler!

  40. Chris says:

    You're welcome, Kris.

    Wren, why are you sighing?

  41. I couldn't come up with anything more clever. Earlier tonight I was stocking up on the nookie I'm going to have to swear off, so now my brain's dead.

  42. Chris says:

    TMI! *lalalalalalalalalalala* I can't read you!

  43. Kris says:

    Geezus, Wren! Readers do NOT want to know about the nookie authors may or may not be getting. God.

  44. K. Z. Snow says:

    “Readers do NOT want to know about the nookie authors may or may not be getting.”

    They only want to know about the nookie bloggers may or may not be getting from they authors they stalk. Heh.

    (P.S. Google says your link is crap.)

  45. What? Bloggers are getting nookie from authors? Who? Where? When?
