Fur Ever Yours: A Paranormal Shifter Romance (Black Paw Pack Book 1)

When his father is killed by a coven of witches, Rafe Erickson claims his destiny by becoming the Alpha of Black Paw Pack. Or so he thought…

An ancient prophecy tells the tale that all Black Paw Alphas will find their mates during Yule. The attraction will be instant. The craving will be unlike any other. Everyone knows you can’t fight Fate. Or can you?

To Hell with that! 

Rafe has no desire to find a mate and tells the Fates to take their prophecy and shove it! Witnessing the devastation caused by his father’s death was enough for him to know that he’d never purposely put someone through that kind of pain. As far as he’s concerned, his pack is his destiny. All he has to do is stay away from the newcomer who crossed into his lands looking for help.

Escape & Survive! That’s all Mina had to do. The Alpha of Twisted Tail Pack has plans and she has no desire to play any part in them. He is evil. The worst of their kind. He’d kept her against her will and threatened her family. If she doesn’t give him what he wants, it could mean the end of her life along with everyone she loves. 

Mina’s only hope is to build up her strength so she can save her mom and sister from the monster they’ve been forced to follow. She unwittingly runs right into the path of an ancient prophecy. Will her freedom be short lived when a sexy new Alpha sets his sights on her? Will she be able to save herself, let alone her family?

This was definitely an enjoyable read. Connected to the Twisted Tail Pack series, this one does not involve our favorite matchmaker. The author does a wonderful job of storytelling. I for one, will be back for more.

He’ll make me his perfect little pleasure trophy….

Who knew listening to sexy alien abduction stories could get a girl into trouble?

Or that a listener could also be the gateway to another galaxy? I definitely didn’t…but here I am anyway, mated to the Tsenturion High Commander just like the unwilling human heroines in my favorite sci-fi romances.

The Commander demands obedience. He intends to claim me, train me, and turn me into his perfect little pleasure trophy.

He doesn’t believe in love. I don’t believe in giving in without a fight.

There’s no amount of discipline or ecstasy that could break me to his will…I hope.

Don’t Forget #Coronavirus #COVID-19

Now that so many adults are home 🏡 because they’ve either been laid off or they are working from home, I thought it would be a good idea to remind you of some of your normal tasks that you should still be doing.

Set the Alarm Clock

After all the time my husband and I spent in the military, I can say this without any qualm, your body gets accustomed to getting up at a certain time. Now I know it’s tempting to sleep in, but don’t do it. Keep getting up at the same time. The current employment situation will come to an end and you will get another job. So stay in the habit of getting up in the morning.

Shower 🚿, Shave 🪒, and Shoes 👞

Okay, I get it, ladies don’t shave every morning like the guys do, but you get my point. If you’re single or a childless couple, it’s so very easy to spend half the day in your PJ’s. Seriously, don’t do it. You will feel much better about yourself after showering and dressing. Not to mention, we’ve all seen the ads on TV 📺 depicting a person working from home and they’re only dressed nicely on the top that shows on camera. You don’t need to put jacket and tie on, but do put clothes on that wouldn’t embarrass your grandma 👵.

Sit down for at least one meal 🥘 each day.

Plan your meals and sit down to enjoy them with your family. Actually spend some time together. If you’re sitting down for supper, talk about how your day was. Sadly, this is something that needs to be pointed out to some families.

Volunteer your time to help others.

If your health allows it, consider volunteering in your neighborhood. There are so many people who really need a little help right now. Whether you volunteer to deliver groceries for a neighbor or spend some time sewing 🧵 masks 🎭 to donate to a local hospital 🏥, do what you can to make things a little better for someone else. It will make you feel better about yourself. Not to mention, it will help make your day go faster!

If you’ve been laid off, update your resume.

Everyone should have a copy of their resume. Take this opportunity to update it to include your most recent job. Don’t be afraid to acknowledge that you were laid off/let go because of the Coronavirus. Face it, you aren’t alone in that regard. If you learned new skills while employed, highlight them. Earned new certificates? Add them in! Even include any and all volunteer activities you participated it. Let employers know that you are willing to help wherever and whenever needed.

Reach out to your parents and friends.

For those who have the capability, make it a video chat. For your family, this can help keep everyone close. For your close friends, do the same thing. Social Distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation. Plan to check in on older relatives regularly.

Finally

I have absolute faith that we will get through this. At some point in time, you will again be looking for work. Don’t be afraid to include any volunteer work you’ve done while home in your resume. Include any new courses you may have completed. Show prospective employers that you took advantage of this time to help others.

Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup | America’s Test Kitchen

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as making your own soup 🍜. This is a recipe from Cook’s Illustrated that I’ve made several times. It tastes so much better than the canned ones.

Plain tomato soup can be thin and sharp. Adding cream—the usual stodgy solution—merely dulls it. We wanted to tame the tartness without losing flavor.

Enjoy the Giggle (Part 1)

Sometimes when things get crazy, you just have to sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the giggle. So in honor of this idea, here’s a few memes on the subject…..


Now obviously, I didn’t draw these! My eternal thanks for the many cartoonists out there who did. Some of these came from the great folks at MSN who scoured newspaper websites gather these up!

Her Dragon’s Heart (Dragon Guard Series Book 8)

What do you get when you combine one head-strong dragon shifter with a young woman whose past won’t stay hidden? Then add a coven of demon-raising wizards and a Fate that will not be denied? The perfect recipe for sizzling romance, spine-tingling intrigue, sword swinging action and swoon-worthy love. Enter the world of the Dragon Guard…Forever be changed.

Fabulous entry in the Dragon Guard series. I love the way things flow from start to finish. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

I borrowed this book through a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

The Rebel and the Rogue (Interstellar Brides® Program Book 19)

Zenos, from the Astra Legion of Rogue 5, is on a mission to find an antidote to the deadly venom flowing through his body.  Without the antidote, one bite during mating will kill a hybrid Forsian’s chosen female. Zenos must acquire the serum at any cost, for like his Atlan cousins, his mating instinct will eventually consume him. The last thing he needs is a distraction, but one look at the defiant female bounty hunter and he can’t deny his body what she’s offering—a few wild hours of pleasure.

Ivy Birkeland’s entire ReCon unit was annihilated as a result of Quell, a mind-altering drug the pirates of Rogue 5 are known to distribute. A rebel to her core, her heart still broke when she was forced to walk away from her life as a Coalition fighter. Now she hunts a bounty that will allow her to catch the criminals selling Quell and avenge her dead friends. Free of the Coalition Fleet’s strict regulations, she makes a deal with an unknown Rogue 5 operative to gain access to his home planet and travels to Transport Station Zenith to meet him.

When Ivy’s smoking hot, one-night-stand turns out to be her Rogue 5 contact, every carefully-laid plan she’s made goes to hell. Because when a rebel and a rogue are forced to work together, sparks will fly. They don’t need the criminals to kill them, they just might finish each other…if they don’t fall in love first.

Ever since we were first introduced to the people of Rogue 5, I’ve been waiting for a return to this moon. This was everything I could have wanted to read in such a story. A guy who loves so much that he denies himself to protect his love, and a girl so loyal she’s willing to do the unthinkable to protect and avenge her friends. I notice the mention of a new race in this one that seems to be compatible with Earth girls, so when are we going to meet them???

Bring to Bear (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 24)

Winter Delgado loves planning a good party. She’s excited about her newest client, Gerri Wilder, but not so much for the hot alpha bear that’s most definitely her mate. The party will push her career to new heights. If only she could focus on her job and not on tall, dark, and sexy Finn. This whole mate business is making her rethink not wanting to get involved. 

Finn Blackburn is on the outs with his clan. He owns his own security company in the city and life has been pretty quiet until now. After one fateful afternoon, he’s found his long-lost twin brother, his parents, and more importantly, his mate. He’s not getting a chance to catch his breath or check out Winter’s curves before everyone is depending on him to save his clan, but no pressure. 

Finn’s oppressed clan is only the beginning of his problems. The clan elders are set on pushing his family out of the way and having their own corrupt people in charge. Between fighting for his clan, putting his family together, and making sure Winter is safe, it’s a hell of a time to fall in love. As the drama unfolds, Finn and Winter team up to face evil head on and risk one, or both of them, being killed.

Wonderful

Great completion of the characters and events begun in the previous book. This is definitely a keeper in my book. Well done!

Mating Chaos from the sexy, suspenseful Ashwood Falls Series by USA Today bestselling author Lia Davis is now on Audible!

One-Click Today: https://adbl.co/3csnjwa

As pack Beta, Dane Raines has seen far too much pain and death. But with war on the horizon yet again, thanks to the new Alpha of Onyx, Dane will have to work twice as hard with the other Ashwood Falls leaders to ensure the safety of his pack. The last thing he needs at a time like this is a complication like Jasmine.

Jasmine Russel’s life is chaos. Between her first full-time job running the family bar, and her second full-time job caring for her trouble-making twin brothers, she never slows down and she’s always on edge. The prospect of another war only adds to her life of turmoil. She’s determined to keep what’s left of her family safe no matter what the future holds, and that means keeping Dane as far away as possible.

Yet the unavoidable truth for all wolves is that once a mate is found, the bond cannot be denied. Dane is tired of waiting, standing on the sidelines with nothing more than Jasmine’s excuses to keep them apart. With everything on the line, he’s prepared to claim his rightful mate once and for all, even if that means mating chaos.

As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating. Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid.

Travis Hunter’s main objective is to destroy the Onyx Pack – a group of drug using, murdering rogue shifters. His seek-and-destroy plans are put on hold when he rescues a female from a brutal attack. The beautifully exotic tiger shifter, Shayna, stirs a passion he thought died with his long-lost mate. When Shay’s first heat cycle slams into her, Travis has no choice but to submit to her needs–and his own. But there is always a price to sleeping with the Pack princess. Not only will they have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will have to deal with a mating that is beyond a single night and could have consequences more than either of them had thought. And when Travis finds out Shay wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.
