“Someone won’t be winning parent of the year anytime soon either.” The edge of his lips rose in half a smile. He looked at her and then at his sleeping daughter, he loved seeing them like that, they looked perfect.
Maria stared at him, a smile automatically dominating her face. “Your parenting skills are contagious.”
Maria’s fear and hate for men is solidified by Ricky’s abuse and his obsession to kill her. In an effort to save her son, she runs away and crosses paths with Dave, a man going through his own tribulations with his wife. He is determined to protect her, and to show her that not all men are evil and that true love does exists. And he in turn, finds a woman worthy to be a mother to his daughter, and his wife.
But their dream of having a loving family is short lived when a ghost from Maria’s past comes back to take it all away from her in the most brutal and torturous way.
But Maria isn’t alone anymore and most importantly, her father finally shows up to do what he was supposed to five years ago. Protect his daughter.

I was thinking a few weeks ago about how much I love Christmas, and especially Christmas films, and I thought…Why not watch lots of Christmas films and review them on the blog?? I also thought wouldn’t it be great if all the girls here at SLOFL watched some of the Christmas films and discussed which ones we love and which ones we MUST watch at Christmas…
I put together a list of 30 films that I want to try to watch before midnight on New Years Eve…not an easy feat if you have a busy life, but I think it can be done.
The list is below…
A Christmas Carol (w/ Jim Carrey)
A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas
Babes In Toyland
Christmas Carol: The Movie (w/ Kate Winslet)
Deck The Halls
The Grinch (live action)
Home Alone 1 & 2
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the cartoon)
It’s A Wonderful Life
Jingle All The Way
Meet Me In St Louis
Mickey’s Christmas Carol
Miracle On 34th Street (New)
Miracle On 34th Street (Old)
Muppet’s Christmas Carol
Nightmare Before Christmas
Santa Clause 1, 2 & 3 (Tim Allen)
The Polar Express
So, what do you think? Are there some of your favourites in there? Are there some you would like to have seen on the list? If you leave us a comment by Christmas eve we’ll pick a few of them to watch during the week running up to New Year’s Eve. Plus, with it being Christmas and all, we thought we’d play Santa so those that we do pick will receive some goodies from us (including something extra special for 2 of you). They will arrive a little late of course but hey, it’ll give you something to look forward to in January
So, to sum up, all you have to do to enter is, leave us a comment and recommend a film that isn’t already on the list and leave us either your email address or Twitter name so we have a way of contacting the winner. As usual, if you’re under 16 please get permission from your parents.
Merry Christmas everyone!

We are very excited to announce the release of Wolfhardt by M. Leighton. It is an absolutely magical read that we think you’ll all enjoy! The front cover is just beautiful! Here is a little bit about the Madly series:
MADLY: BOOK 2, WOLFHARDT
Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a mermaid princess, that is.
Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, Madly’s home beneath the sea. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.
The first spirit to arrive is that of Ulrich Wolfhardt, a man that was once obsessed with wolves and a young maiden he would follow through the woods. After a bite from a wolf, Wolfhardt’s obsession with the girl became an unnatural hunger and the young maiden’s grandmother cursed him with a fate worse than death. And now he’s back…with a vengeance and a bite that can infect others as well.
Madly must learn the identity of Wolfhardt’s descendant and stop him before he kills again and spreads his curse across the earth. But the only person strong enough to help Madly is Jackson, the Sentinel who vowed to protect her and the one person capable of breaking her heart. Can Madly resist forbidden love long enough to save the world from Wolfhardt? Or will she have to sacrifice her heart and her destiny to save the ones she loves?
Find out in book two of the Madly series, Wolfhardt.
To celebrate the release of Wolfhardt, we are giving away the e-book which includes both Madly, the first book, as well as Wolfhardt. The contest will end midnight (UK time), 1st August 2011 and is an international giveaway so everyone can enter.
All you have to do to enter is tweet “Madly” to @SLFictionLovers. You must also be following us to be eligible for the giveaway.
The winner will be chosen using random.org. We will announce the winner on 2nd August via Twitter and we will also post it on the blog.
