Regan Hastings didn’t miss a beat in the sequel of her The Awaking series. I couldn’t get enough of Teresa, Rune or the awesome storyline. As in the fRegan Hastings didn’t miss a beat in the sequel of her The Awaking series. I couldn’t get enough of Teresa, Rune or the awesome storyline. As in the first book you get a sizzling action pack romance story. This book goes deeper into the story on how these witches came into their current predicament. I really enjoyed the surprises that came about during the adventure Rune and Teresa had in getting to Teresa’s Artifact piece. That also reminds me I loved the addition on the mystery, darkness and magic around each witch’s Artifact and I can’t wait to see what Reagan will add in the next book.
Teresa is one tuff and powerful witch. I loved her power and how she took to her Eternal Rune. Rune is also very powerful with his magic. When these two get together nothing will stop them. Rune and Teresa romance start out with a bang and they sizzle the pages all the way to the finish.
I simply loved this book. I haven’t had too many books this year that gave me that WOW! Affect, but this one gave me just that. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves some sizzling magic....more
This is Stacey Kennedy’s new spin off from her Magic Sword series called The Blue Bloods series. This is my favorite by Stacey, the others are very goThis is Stacey Kennedy’s new spin off from her Magic Sword series called The Blue Bloods series. This is my favorite by Stacey, the others are very good, but this wolf story just satisfied me in all the right areas. I loved everything about this book from the dangerous action to how Stacey wrote the wolves. You cant have to much dominant Alpha;) As always Stacey gives you romance, hot sex and leaves a happy ending. This book has an excellent mystery I never guessed it to be blank LOL you thought I was going to say it NOPE… So take a walk on the wild wolf side and give this one a try.
With this being a spin off you can read her Magic Sword series to find out more about this couple and I would suggest it, they are good books, but Stacey tells enough so you don’t really have to go back and read the Magic Sword series to understand this one.
Rynn was thrown into this world by a horrible experience with a wolf, Now she is settling in and becoming more comfortable with her new life. In some new turn of events Rynn helps in a dangerous adventure along the way she finds her dead beat parents and she also finds this adventure will hit closer to home than anyone realized. I love reading Rynn and how strong she is, as each turn of events unfolds she becomes even stronger. She also finds out she has some special abilities.
Briggs is now one of my favorite wolves. He is strong and protective and knows how to take care of Rynn. In this new adventure he finds he has to step up and claim his mate sooner, then he has to deal with her dead beat parents and it doesn’t stop there, when things start to unfold his mate will be in the crossfire, will he be able to keep her safe or will he lose her? You have to read and find out.
A little warning here these wolves are more hard core killers then in your romance books....more
I have had this casserole book for a while and love it. As you can see from a picture below all the tabs I have on it. There is everything in here bee I have had this casserole book for a while and love it. As you can see from a picture below all the tabs I have on it. There is everything in here beef, poultry, pork, seafood, meatless, breakfast and brunch, side dishes, quick and easy, serves two, and potluck pleasures. There is a picture for just about every recipe and easy to read and follow, some are easy and some are harder so if you have the time or not there is something for everyone.
Over the last few years I have been able to add several fruit trees and a few fruit bushes to our backyard and this year I am getting a garden ready,Over the last few years I have been able to add several fruit trees and a few fruit bushes to our backyard and this year I am getting a garden ready, so I figured I better get a head start and figure out the best preserve fresh produce before summer gets here. I went to Netgallay hoping there would be something there. While most publishers wont allow a romance blog to review their cookbooks, I found one that did and it just so happens it was just what I needed.
I never knew how much went into canning. This book took me from beginning of the canning process to end, which was what I was looking for in a book. Too often times we have to buy several books to get a completed product, but Blue Ribbon Canning takes you all he way through the process and with awesome recipes, such as, Spiced Barry Jam and Mint Jelly, which I will be trying in a cake recipe as soon as I am able, I don’t see me having to buy anymore canning books for a long time.
The authors included not only jellies and jams recipes but they also, include recipes for fruits, vegetables, pickles and more. They also offer Canning techniques, step by step for pressure canning, canning equipment and much more. I could see this book working well for beginners all the way to advance canners.
Recipes are easy to read and follow. I love how they added things like, if you love Margaritas then you’ll love this jam and Did you know facts corner with saying like, Did you know there are over 3,000 fairs healed in America each year…. Heck, no I didn’t LOL
I would have liked to see more pictures of the completed recipes and I wished they would have included the sales for devices instead of just paperback, but all in all this is an awesome book that I will be buying ASAP. ...more
Nexi is back again in high fighting action, along beside her is Kyden and her cat protector Willow. There is a few things happening almost back to bacNexi is back again in high fighting action, along beside her is Kyden and her cat protector Willow. There is a few things happening almost back to back, but the author knows how to write, so its not confusing. I was so into reading this installment I had a hard time putting it down, so I could get things in my real life done lets just say I done things quickly so I could get back to reading.
I loved the first of the book where Nexi is helping a woman Rynn that has been wrongly turned into a wolf. I also cant wait for the spin off book of Briggs and Rynn. There is so much packed in this book there is no way I could cover it. If you’re a reader of this series please don’t miss this installment and if you haven’t tried this series please check it out.
I really enjoyed this book. Nexi is always in the middle of the action and has some awesome friends that is always in the middle to help out. This time around she finds out there is something more between Magnus and her and its not good ,she has to find a way to get rid of Magnus. Kyden goes all out to keep Nexi at his side. That’s one reason I like Kyden so well.
The author always leaves a HEA in the closing even though Kyden and Nexi has a few obstacles that comes up between them. I recommend this to any UF reader that would like romance and a little sex in their books and for the paranormal reader that wants a little UF in their romance....more
Before I get into the review I would like to say for those of you that loves PNR and has never tried a historical this would be an excellent series toBefore I get into the review I would like to say for those of you that loves PNR and has never tried a historical this would be an excellent series to try. You still get adventure and the great hot sex thats in PNR of course, you’d miss the paranormal part, but with all the fun that’s in this series I don’t think you’d miss it much.
The second book in the Mackenzie series did not disappoint me one bit. My words for the whole book is delightfully fun! Jennifer Ashley does it again I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the way she kept what Mac done in the past to make Isabella leave away from you while you read, then she starts throwing in little details about it before she just piles it all on. I found it a fabulous idea, it kept me turning the pages. But the author doesn’t stop with that, she also gives you lots of different emotions, humor, danger, a mystery with a villain that’s full of surprises then she tops it off with hot romance with cream on top;) I just cant ask for anything more.
Very little spoilers Isabella was wonderful to read. She is the one who always ends up in the news with all of her scandalous ways of living. And you know what the first big scandal was, her marring Mac. This book is about her past life with Mac present and future. If you read the first book in this series you found she and Mac is separated. She is still in love with Mac but doesn’t want to put up with his ways anymore. But she soon finds you can and should give someone a second chance. She also learns in return she has to give it all to Mac including her heart and trust before they are both whole again.
I loved reading about Mac and how he wants to make things right again between Isabella and himself. Isabella is not going to take off of Mac again. Mac soon finds out he has to give all before Isabella will have him. Then on top of things someone is after him and Isabella. He will stop at nothing to keep from loosing her this time around.
I love the way there is already so much love between these two even after what all has happened, they want no one else. Now with saying that let me tell you a little on the really hot sex, I am not going to spoil to much, lets just say it involves some cream and body part;) It was so good, I still remember the page numbers and I have never done that! Its 98 and 99. It was delicious and fun to read. Now the problem is going to be waiting for the next book……....more
Silent howl is the second book in Stacey Kennedy’s Blue Bloods series; I simply loved this book from start to finish. I enjoyed the first book to theSilent howl is the second book in Stacey Kennedy’s Blue Bloods series; I simply loved this book from start to finish. I enjoyed the first book to the series, but this book was what I needed to help me over a hump. When things in life are upside down it’s nice to open a book or in this case a PDF copy and be able to read something to pick you up, make you have a brighter day and to know that there is always love to be found. Not all books have to have a big bang or the hottest romance, it’s nice to find a true love romance between a couple, along with the love of others that helps each other in a desperate time of need, against worst of killers.
Briggs and Ryann’s relationship develops even more in this book. It’s amazing to see how a writer can develop the characters each book. Briggs and Ryann have a wonderful romance story and Ryann learns to embrace her wolf and live more by the pack ways. Briggs is one of my favorite hero’s, he maybe a beta to his alpha leader, but Briggs can be alpha and he shows this to Ryann. OMG! It was one hot scene, so be careful reading this book because you may find yourself saying “I want my own Briggs.” LOL. I simply love Ryann; she is a heroine that I wish I could be anytime.
Special note, I loved how Stacey tied the title of the book with Briggs and Raynn it was very sweet.
The author also brings in characters from her other series; I love how she does this it ties everyone together. This is an awesome series, so kudos to Stacey for dreaming up this great series for all to enjoy....more
Stacey Kennedy has another hit with Whispers of Evil, book two in Stacey’s extremely hot paranormal romance series. This is a fast romance that will hStacey Kennedy has another hit with Whispers of Evil, book two in Stacey’s extremely hot paranormal romance series. This is a fast romance that will have you hanging on to find out how Griffin is going to get Nayeli to give him her heart, bare and exposed (loved that at the end.). You’ll find adventure, action, hot sex, and one scene with voyeurism (that happened in the ceremony) and another scene with spanking. I look forward to reading more in this series in the future. Note there is a punishment scene at the end that has the spanking. I didn’t find this scene bad in anyway or forceful. I found it more in love and respect. If you have read books with these scenes I’m sure you know the difference that I am talking about. I loved the storyline and Griffin. The way Griffin handles Nayeli was wonderful he has to push her a little fast at first, but he was very patient and he really wanted to learn who Nayeli was deep down. I liked how Nayeli was willing to do anything to keep from going back to the hospital.
If you’re a paranormal romance reader and haven’t tried Stacey’s books please do. ...more

I was truly saddened when I found out Ronda is now passed, I was hoping for more books. I loved the writing flow and the surprises that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could to see what was happing next in this one, to me it was totally different from the rest of the series. In book one you’ll read that Amelia is to be married to Lord Collingsworth in this book you’ll find out what happened to them after they are married.
Amelia found herself in a heap of trouble on her wedding night, she thought that the thing (Yep, I did say thing, you’ll have to read;) was her husband, as she was screaming and fighting this thing off of her, she ends up killing the thing or at least she thought she did. Then all the sudden as if from one of her dreams a man from her past came to the rescue his name is Gabriel. Gabriel being wolf he could hear her screaming, he didn’t know at the time who it was, but it was someone in trouble. So he comes in and finds Amelia with a dead man. As you get into the story more they are sounded by shape-shifting creatures that wants nothing more than to kill them. These creatures goes as far as to burn the house down, So Amelia the maid and Gabriel is now on the run form these creatures and they have a ways to go on foot to get to Gabriel’s house. it’s a exciting adventure with lots of twist and turns that will keep you going. I found this book nothing less than wonderful.

Again another favorite for my family of female's + one firend. Who wouldn’t fall in love with three brothers that wanted to be devoted to your happiness in everyway. This is a great suspense story with loads of totally hot sizzling sex. The story starts off kind of cheesy, but between the men and the sex it well makes up for it.
* spoilers* Adam, Ryan and Ethan is up front with what they want form Holly, it confuses her for a small time, but her attraction for the brothers makes her cave really quick, but she has a big problem, she is in need to get rid of, it’s her husband. This is where the adventure comes in getting rid of the husband maybe a harder task then they thought, but as they make that task more to reality they get a little something special added into the mix. There is no m/m in this book....more
