Rockin’ Around the Dragon Tree: MacAllen Clan (Dragon Guard Book 43)

The holidays are long gone, but Dragons Love Forever!

Something is always roasting on an open fire, bells damn sure still jingling somewhere if momma has anything to say about it, and snow falling in the desert…

WAIT! WHAT?

Yep! That’s right. Snow is falling in the desert. The cacti have icicles, the bobcats are frostbitten, and the coyotes have started a bonfire. If the temperatures don’t start rising soon, the deer are threatening to get more than a little horny.

One kiss, that was all it took. Now, a whole year later plus three months into a new year and this poor Guardsman’s sportin’ a broken nose, a missing Mate, and snowdrifts instead of tumbleweeds blowing in the breeze.

Ho! Ho! Ho! What’s a Dragon to do?

Time to cozy up in your favorite readin’ spot and get ready for a romance for all seasons. The holidays are long gone, but Dragons Love Forever! After all, Fate Won’t Be Denied, and neither should you. 

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was such a fun read. There were a number of times when I had to remind myself not to laugh out loud since my husband would not have understood!. The characters are really fun and the chemistry between the two was just wonderful. Please Julia, keep them coming!

Her Dragon, His Demon (Dragon Guard Series Book 12)

Her Dragon is strong and loyal, a leader among his kin. He makes her feel things she never thought possible and…he is her only hope for survival.

His Demon is beautiful and alluring, the other half of his soul. She is the One the Universe made for him and… she is his only hope for eternal love.

Together they must battle a darkness unlike any other led by Hell’s Chancellor himself. It’s not just their love that’s at stake…this time it’s their very existence.

Oh Yes!! This is such a good pairing. I definitely wanted to laugh a few times. But it was really good to see Rian find his mate. I do have to say, this series is definitely better when read in order. You need the story of all the previous ones to really enjoy what you’re reading!

Wolfing Her Down (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 26)

With little evidence and no witnesses, she’s not sure what to do. Will Ava solve this crime, or will she be the next name on the killer’s list?

Ava North is more comfortable talking to a dead man than a live one. Unfortunately, that also means it’s that much harder to find love. She’s in her forties and an introvert. Chasing down bad guys and being the best homicide Lieutenant is a piece of cake. Mmm cake. Finding a good man to share life with? That’s another story. 

Slate Forbes is busting his fur to make a success out of his pack’s cabin business. He’s too busy dealing with renovations, and a competing bear clan, to think of a mate. But none of that matters when the most beautifully awkward woman bumps into him and steals his drink. Now, he can think of nothing more than to find her, mate her, and make her his. 

Coming across a dead body on vacation is not Ava’s idea of relaxation, but she can tell something fishy’s going on in the small town. She’s not willing to let a possible crime go unsolved. Her focus on getting justice for the dead might be the end of her vacation and her life. With little evidence and no witnesses, she’s not sure what to do. Will Ava solve this crime, or will she be the next name on the killer’s list?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I definitely enjoyed seeing this couple come together. It’s especially nice when the couple is a little bit older. While all the young couples are good, ones that are more mature have a definite charm about them. I will definitely be looking forward to the next one!

Ham and Green Beans in the Instant Pot

This is an old recipe that I grew up eating. In case I hadn’t mentioned it before, I grew up just outside of Philadelphia. A lot of the meals we ate were ones that could stretch to feed a lot of people. This is one such recipe. I made it in my Instant Pot, but it could easily be made on the stove.

  • 3/4 lb cooked ham. I used smoked ham. You can adjust the amount to cover your needs.
  • 1 lb potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces.
  • 1 lb fresh green beans. Clip the ends off, then into bite sized pieces.
  • 2 cups water

Add everything into your pot. As you can see, I used new potatoes instead of peeling potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Set your Instant Pot to cook for 20 on High Pressure. When it finishes, let the pressure release for 5 or 10 minutes before doing a rapid release.

This is a simple one-pot meal. You can easily swap in frozen green beans if you’re cooking on the stovetop. To brighten up the flavors, splash some balsamic vinegar on your plate.

The Fate of Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 10)

Trapped for almost a century. No chance of escape. All hope was lost and then he felt…her…

Sleepless nights, a man haunts her at every turn, his voice calling her, begging her…needing her… 

Not even the Universe has the answers and time is running out…

The Fate of her dragon may be the death of them all!

Drago and Alicia are a great couple. Part of a large family of powerful white witches, Alicia wasn’t going to let anything stand in the way of being with her Dragon. This was a fabulous way to introduce a new group of dragons 🐉. Heading for the next book 📖 now!

Dragon Rights (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 25)

Clarke Indiana, antisocial artist, needs an adventure. She wants to live. She wants to love. And Gerri Wilder can make it happen. But like all Gerri matches, Clarke isn’t even a little ready for two sexy shifters that want her for a mate. They might be ice dragons, but they’re hot enough to melt away her resistance.

Sleet and Hale are ice dragon alpha and beta on planet Aurora. They’ve begged Gerri to help them find their mate to complete their triad. Without this special woman, they will never be the rulers their clan needs them to be. Once they meet her, they know Clarke is the mate for them. She’s funny, sassy and those lips are driving them crazy.

When Clarke learns the clan’s secret, she invests more than just her time with them. After innocent lives are put into danger, Clarke goes all superwoman on them to get the precious ones back, no matter the cost. And it will take everything both dragons have to keep her alive long enough to succeed.

This was absolutely fabulous. The triad was great together and really worked well. Gerri is a hoot to watch as she got yet another couple/trio together. I’m dying to see what else she gets up to!

Cucumber, Tomato, And Avocado Salad

This is another little recipe that came across my Echo Show. We liked how it looked so we decided to try it. Wonderful! It was really easy to make and best of all, sized for 2 people. When you are empty-nesters, that can be important.

Just a few ingredients before I send you to find the recipe:

  • 1 english cucumber, diced
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 3 ripe avocados, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
