But the highly disciplined doctor likes protocols and control, in bed and out of it. His second and an equally ruthless warrior, Captain Trax, agrees. Unfortunately, their new mate has a wild streak, a thirst for danger, and an appetite for violence that both shocks and thrills them. When her penchant for stirring up trouble brings danger to The Colony, they’ll stop at nothing to save her.

Nothing at all.

You gotta love the warriors on the Colony. They’ve been through H#ll and came out the other side still fighting. Still willing to stand between the innocents and the evil that lurks in the dark. It was so good to see this pair of Prillons getting a mate. Even if they didn’t think it would ever happen!

Little did she know, her mate had no intention of giving into the Fates.

Ethan Lockhart had found his mate, and he wasn’t very happy about it. He didn’t want a mate—didn’t need a mate. The Fates had already messed with his life in ways that had changed everything, and none of it for the better.

But they just had to go and throw the woman of his dreams in his face—when they knew damn well, thanks to their meddling, he couldn’t claim her. Yeah—he was tired of playing their games, but somehow he would have the last laugh. All he had to do was avoid her, and her
mouthwatering scent.

Camryn Dochart was proud of the life she lived. As the owner of Cam’s diner, she works hard, but never has time to play hard. She longed for a mate. Someone to share her life with.

This was great! This couple were so great to watch. She didn’t understand what he couldn’t explain. Such a different series but it goes along with the Black Paw ones.

He’s Back with a 2 day project!

Ted came back on Wednesday to start working on my kitchen cabinets. He was going to start earlier in the month, but given that his wife, Carol, is battling leukemia, we wanted to wait a bit. Her new medicine is working well and she feels wonderful. So the work begain!

It started by taking out old cabinet and dropping the others down. From there, he build the head space next. And let me tell you, trying to get that up in place with an 80+, 70+ and 60+ in a very small space was not easy! (Yeah, I’m the baby of the bunch!!!)

So here’s the photos from the first day.

That mess on the table is NOT how I like my dining room table to look! Luckily by the end of day 2, this is how things looked.

Next up is to put the molding up, get things painted and add the last two “beams” up!

Reborn: House of Phoenix: An Academy of the Phoenix Novel (Wicked Reform School)

And since they clearly want me dead, I’m on a mission to find out who they are and show them why The Phoenix Council is terrified of me.

Even if it means revealing a secret I’ve guarded for all of my lives.

Rising from the ashes of my own death wasn’t the epic event I pictured. It was painful and confusing. After the hazy cloud of my rebirth lifted, my first thoughts were of Lucent. He’d slammed death fire into me and teleported me away from the crime scene.

Why? So he could take the blame and spare me from final execution at the hands of The Phoenix Council.

And I couldn’t live with that. So, of course, I turned myself in.

But reform school is no joke, and every assignment tests my already thin patience. I may be making new friends, and collecting bodyguards I never expected to need, but someone is sabotaging my attempts to succeed. And since they clearly want me dead, I’m on a mission to find out who they are and show them why The Phoenix Council is terrified of me.

Fire Maidens: Portugal (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 4)

A jaded warrior who doesn’t want to get involved + an irresistible she-dragon on the run.

For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.

Novice dragon, Laura Sampao, always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. She thought it would never happen to her.

Wrong.

Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. But that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.

Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe.

Why? Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.

Wonderful! Another great entry into this series. If there’s one thing I truly love about Anna’s books, it’s the wonderful descriptions of people and places. The characters are people who have flaws and strengths that every one can relate to. I’m looking forward to reading more.

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Anna Lowe loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting the later inspire her fiction. If she’s not hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story, you’ll find her hiking in the mountains or biking country roads. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Claws, Class and a Whole Lotta Sass: Sassy Ever After (Dragon Guard Book 20)

The Universe may not make mistakes, but She doesn’t make things easy either. It’s gonna take claws, class, and a whole lotta sass to save the day this time.

Hiding in plain sight as the Pack Healer for a bunch of wolves was the perfect cover…

Using ancient magic to hide her true nature hadn’t always been easy, but it beat the hell outta being dead…then he waltzed in. Six foot-nine inches of pure male dragon, looking better than a man had a right to and making her dragoness wake from a long hibernation to spread her wings, not only rocked Dannika’s world, it almost turned it upside-down. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an evil as old as time and twice as deadly has reared its ugly head. Her ability to hide behind her patented sassy attitude may have kept Dannika safe for all these years, but now the future of all things paranormal is at stake and only she holds the key to its survival…well, at least part of it.

It was supposed to be a simple cross country trip, but then, he’d heard that somewhere before… 
Since the death of his father almost a century ago, Wolfe McCallum’s life had been a series of incredible ups and devastating downs that made riding a roller coaster seem like a walk in the park. It also didn’t help that he freely admitted to being more stubborn than a mule and twice as contrary. He prided himself on being able to outlast, out argue, or just plain irritate anyone on the planet into giving up without raising a single claw or breaking a sweat…until he damn near tripped over the most beautiful woman in the world.

One look…one kiss…one extraordinary night… 


Secrets unlocked, Destiny knocking at the door, and a Fate that will not be denied. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, be prepared for sudden stops, and by all means – buckle up. Fireworks are the least of your worries when one bull-headed dragon and his sassy-since-birth dragoness are faced with saving not only themselves, but everyone and everything they hold dear.

Yahoo!

You have to love a woman with a lot of sass! Dani had a very good reason for hiding who and what she was. Wolfe just had a “wee” bit of trouble understanding that one!

Brocke (Alien Warlord’s Conquest)

Yet if he discovers that he is willing to lose everything he has held dear in the name of this feisty, curvy woman, can he really hold on to what he thought he was?

Every ray of light needs darkness to make it shine…

Cora Frey has been working for the Galactic Union for far too long to be rattled by anything. As a Terran investigator on the Corgan world Gaiya, she stands between the violent alien race and the Union itself, chasing down those who wish either side harm. But when a string of violent murders sweeps the Corgan community, even Cora may have finally seen too much. And it only gets more complicated from there, when one passion-filled night with the most terrifying man in the realm leaves Cora with a surprise she wasn’t quite prepared for…

Brocke is the well-kept secret of Corgan society. As the executioner and guard of the Chieftain’s private prison, he is what Corgan parents use to scare their kids into behaving, the Guardian. He is the darkness that comes before the light and no nightmare has ever gotten past him. Until now.

But his paths cross with Cora, and the Corgan warlord finds himself considering whether there isn’t something to be said about the lighter things in life. And when news of Cora’s pregnancy reaches not only Brocke but the evil they’re meant to vanquish, all bets are off.

Together, they must chase down a crazed convict and untangle a web of lies and murders that have kept both Corgans and humans on edge for far too long. With Cora’s and their unborn child’s life is put in danger, only the heartless warlord can be the one to save them both…

Yet if he discovers that he is willing to lose everything he has held dear in the name of this feisty, curvy woman, can he really hold on to what he thought he was?

Rating: 3 out of 5.

There has been quite a bit of time passed since the previous books ended. Brocke is Nadar’s son. Things have definitely taken a turn for the worse on the planet. This is one that like others, I wouldn’t have finished if I didn’t enjoy the series that Ms. Voxley has created. There’s no indication of how Brocke grew up to give him such a hard outlook on life. Not the best one in the bunch.

Vi’s a small-town girl with big city dreams. Born and raised in Texas, she’s always had her eyes to the stars. Telling stories is her passion and when she can mix a whole lot of steam with equal parts sexy alien hunks, well, things just get that much better, right?

An ardent Rangers fan, she believes all men should come in a yummy beefcake package and that’s exactly the kind of heroes she prefers. A curvy woman herself, Vi likes to write heroines as sassy as she is.

She likes indulging in a little wine and a little chocolate, but her first love int life is writing and everything else follows second.

If you have enjoyed her books or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact her via e-mail: voxley.vi@gmail.com
