WHY "I-Can't-Wait-To-Read" REBEL BELLE by Rachel Hawkins

I just love the sound of Rebel Belle!  Pitched as Buffy  (which I love) with a Southern twist (awesome setting) this new series from author Rachel Hawkins' sounds perfect with it's action, magic, and romance. Oh yes, and of course a southern gal with some sass in her. I love a strong heroine, and I can't wait to meet Harper, and hope she is as kick-butt as she sounds.
