Hunted and Claimed (Wayward Mates Book 7)

She thought she could run from her mate. Then he lassoed her.

Riley decided years ago that she would be better off on her own, but when the alpha of the local pack finds out there’s a lone wolf causing trouble on his turf he takes matters into his own hands.

As far as Cameron Nichols is concerned, Riley will be joining his pack whether she likes it or not. Her only choice will be whether to submit to his authority with or without needing to be stripped bare and spanked over his knee until she is kicking and crying and promising obedience. When she chooses the latter, the Navy SEAL turned cowboy is more than happy to oblige.

But Cameron knows instantly that Riley isn’t just a feisty female in need of an alpha’s firm hand. She is his mate, and she knows it too, despite her best efforts to deny it. No matter how many times she tries to run, he will always chase her down, punish her thoroughly, and then mount and claim her so roughly that all she can do is scream her helpless, shamefully intense pleasure into the pillow as her body betrays her and surrenders ever more completely to his demands.

I have loved the Wayward Mates series and have reread all of the previous books in the series. Delta James is one of my favorite romance authors and no one does shifter romance better. I especially liked Hunted and Claimed because of Riley, arguably the strongest of the many strong heroines in this series. I also liked the hero’s appreciation of Riley’s strengths and his persistence in pursuing her. The books may be standalone, but are best read in order. I highly recommend this series.

First of all, let me tell you that I love this series! The women are so strong and the men are wonderful overprotective asses! 😁 Riley and Cam are no different.

Riley has run from her pack so that she can have her own life. She spends time with Bae Diogel and Skylar before they are disbanded. Riley rescues the women that are being stolen and abused by the clans that don't have mates. She is found by Cam and he realizes that she is his fated mate. Riley doesn't disagree, she just doesn't want to be mated. She wants to continue her mission. She escapes before he is able to mate her and that is the start of their game of cat and mouse.

I loved this story, as I have loved all the stories in this series. I rejoice with the women when they defy their men, who are overprotective and overbearing. But, I still like them. I can't wait for the final book to come out! I give this book 5 stars. I would give more if I could!

The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook

650 Recipes for Everything You’ll Ever Want to Make

Because smaller families shouldn’t have to rely on recipes built for four or six, America’s Test Kitchen has reengineered 650 of our best recipes to serve just two. Over the years we’ve discovered that scaling down a recipe isn’t as simple as cutting the ingredients in half—cooking times, temperatures, and equipment need to be adapted as well. This comprehensive cookbook takes the guesswork out of cooking for two so you can be sure that anything you want to make—from Classic Beef Stew to Lasagna to a mini batch of Fudgy Brownies or a Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake—will come out right (and perfectly proportioned) every time. We’ll also give you options when you’re short on time. 150 recipes, including Chicken Saltimbocca and Pan-Seared Rib-Eye Steaks with Sweet-Tart Red Wine Sauce, can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. For those times when you want healthier fare, we’ve provided more than 100 recipes labeled “Light” such as Provencal Vegetable Soup and Poached Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit, each with nutritional information listed in an easy-to-read chart in the back of the book. And we include chapters on for-two slow cooking, grilling, and baking pies, quick breads, cakes, and cookies. A 25-page manual teaches the basics of cooking for two, including clever shopping strategies to reduce waste, smart storage tricks help extend freshness of key ingredients, and our picks for the most useful kitchen equipment for any two-person household.

The reason given in the forward for this cookbook is really quite sweet. A neighbor, a man and his daughter, complained that about having too many leftovers after he cooked. After receiving hundreds of requests along the same line, the editors decided answer the requests. Then they discovered that cooking for two people required much more than just dividing the recipe in half!

This cookbook is the result of their work. I’m an empty nester so it was perfect for my husband and myself. I was so impressed I bought copies for both of my daughters! It was so great to see a cake recipe that wouldn’t leave me with enough cake to eat every day for a week!

Even better, IMHO, is the section in the beginning where they give some tips on buying for a smaller household. Tips for using up the leftover ingredients, smaller sized pans. These are all things I personally struggled with after my last daughter moved out!

I have this to say, stop your whining and do some COOKING!!!! This cook book uses common ingredients and common sense to make theses recipes.

Memories of Christmas

How was your Christmas this year? Did you gather around the virtual tree? Did you still go all out on your decorations? I didn’t exactly go all out. Thanks to having redone my bedroom furniture, I was able to spread my normal decorations out more and place a lot of my snowmen in the bedroom. My husband had gotten me a crystal swan and votive holders so I used them as my centerpiece.

I gathered a few of my photos from this year and made a short video to share.

New on the Blog

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve started redoing some of the old posts, updating the information and the photos. I also plan to start adding in new series. I noticed that Delta James is starting a new series called “Tangled Vines” that will follow the “Wayward Mates.” Additionally, I want to add more of the series with a “mail order brides” theme. Those tend to also include a great deal of spanking in them. So if that’s not your thing, feel free to skip them!

Weekly Cup of Coco!

Our old dog, Odie, was never one to play with any kind of toys or to chase a ball. When we got Coco, we purchased a couple of toys to see if she would play with them. As you can see in this (very) short video, she loves her toys!

Scrooged Over (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 29)

Priscilla Bryant thought being matched by the famous Gerri Wilder would make her romantic dreams come true. She’s wrong. So wrong. The shifter she’s been matched with is a complete jerk and no matter how handsome he is, she never wants to see his face again. Talk about being  scrooged over.

Lake Walker knows that sexy Priscilla is his mate the moment he sees her. He can’t wait to get the curvy goddess naked. What he doesn’t understand is why she hates his guts. That’s not supposed to happen with your perfect mate. She’s a handful, but he’s ready to fight for the woman he knows is his.

It’s not every day Gerri Wilder’s told she made a mistake. Okay, more like never. But it seems someone’s trying their damndest to not only keep them apart but doesn’t mind if one dies along the way. This is one time seeing is not believing. Will Lake and Priscilla get wrapped up in danger or can Gerri put a bow on this relationship before it’s too late?

Every year this author works her Christmas magic and brings us a fantastic holiday story we don’t want to miss. So much action, suspense and steamy moments that lead to love with the help of a certain silver wolf. I love this newest addition to the series and how we don’t really know people the way we think we do. The characters went through a lot in a few short pages, but they left their mark on me all the same. I hope the author brings us many more PDA books in the new year, and maybe a little history lesson from the famous mate maker. No matter what she sends my way next I’m sure it’s going to be amazing.

This story starts out a little differently than the others as Gerri has already set up Lake and Priscilla on their first blind date. We start out as the date is beginning but everything seems to go wrong and it appears that Gerri has lost her touch. Little does Priscilla know that the person she is on a date with is not Lake at all but someone trying to keep them apart.

As I am a twin myself I, I can easily see someone not being able to tell twins apart. I really felt for Priscilla and loved this twist to the story.

Claimed and Mastered (Wayward Mates Book 6)

She vowed she would never be mated. He claimed her anyway.

Ava Rhys has always chafed at submitting to the authority of her pack’s alpha, but when he tries to sell her body in return for money and influence, she decides she would be better off on her own. Ava’s plans to live as a lone wolf in the backwoods of Maine are thrown into turmoil, however, when the local game warden makes it his business to take her in hand, and the battle-hardened former Army Ranger soon proves to be just as fiercely dominant as any alpha shifter.

Declan Collins knows a woman in need of a man’s firm hand when he sees one, and it isn’t long before Ava is kneeling naked at his feet with her well-spanked bare bottom on display. Once he has taught her a better use for her sassy mouth, she quickly finds herself screaming her helpless, shameful submission into the bedsheets as he claims her so roughly and so thoroughly that she is left in no doubt that she belongs to him and there is nothing whatsoever she can do about it.

With each passing day he masters her body ever more completely, never hesitating to punish any hint of defiance before using and enjoying her in ways more humiliating than she could have ever imagined. But when instinct causes her to bite him in the throes of yet another intense, desperate climax, will she lose him forever or will she end up mated to an alpha shifter after all?

Master of the Grill: Foolproof Recipes, Top-Rated Gadgets, Gear, & Ingredients Plus Clever Test Kitchen Tips & Fascinating Food Science

Part field guide to grilling and barbecuing and part cookbook, Master of the Grill features a wide variety of kitchen-tested recipes for meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, pizza, and more. These are the recipes everyone should know how to make— the juiciest burgers, barbecue chicken that’s moist not tough, tender grill-smoked pork ribs, the greatest steak (and grilled potatoes to serve alongside). Regional specialties are included, too—learn how to make Cowboy Steaks, Alabama BBQ Chicken, and Kansas City Sticky Ribs. Colorful photography captures the beauty of the recipes and step-by-step shots guide you through everything you need to know. A section on grilling essentials covers the pros and cons of gas and charcoal grills and which might be right for you, as well as the tools you’ll use with them— such as grill brushes, tongs, vegetable baskets, and wood chips and chunks.

Do you know someone who loves to grill, but needs a little help? I bought this book for my husband. He loves to grill, but doesn’t always know how to make what he wants. This book is perfect for that. Besides all the wonderful descriptions that ATK is known for, they have step by step photographic directions! That makes it easier to understand what they are telling you do. I would point out, however, that’s better to only try one new recipe at a time!

This book has many terrific recipes in it; I know because I have made and enjoyed many of them. As far as I can tell, all of these recipes have appeared in the magazines (Cook's Illustrated/Cook's Country). So, yes, I gave it four stars because the recipes are great, but I am returning it because I have a full set of the magazines - that is why I am writing this review, so that potential purchasers will know that if they have a full set of the magazines, they essentially have this book. IMO it would have been more accurate if ATK had subtitled this book "A Collection of the Best Grilling and BBQ Recipes from Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country".

That being said, it is a beautiful book with great pictures, good tips and advice, and a fun format. I am a big fan of ATK, but I don't have room on my shelf for another book when I already have the recipes. BTW - For anyone interested in canning and preserving, check out ATK's new book that subject. It is great!

What’s Next?

The COVID-19 vaccine is starting to be distributed. This is a good thing, but we still need to be cautious. The country is going for “Herd Immunity.” And this can be a good thing. It’s what stopped the Zika virus in Brazil. It took TWO YEARS for enough people to have been exposed for the virus to be stopped. That’s a long time to ask people to wear a mask and keep their distance. We already have people refusing to do, citing “my body, my choice.”

That’s a slogan people my age (Baby Boomers) have heard before. Then it was used to refer to the choice of whether to have an abortion or not. That was a personal choice that didn’t affect the people you passed as you went along your way.

Today is a totally different scenario. Simply breathing can affect the people around you when you are out of your house. You can be affected by others who aren’t wearing masks. The best guess scenario is that it could be next fall before we get back to something we can call normal. You don’t want the vaccine? Fine, that’s your choice. But for the love of God, please at least wear a mask!

and this is a dandy beginning. Banning is king of the Lunar-White Dragons but because he had recklessly pissed off a wizened old witch (she had cursed him) he now found himself a gargoyle statue looking out over a water fountain. "His giant ego, fed by his own aspirations of glory, had not only led to his downfall, but that of his Clan." Thus sets in motion the start of this series. His own salvation rests in finding his mate. The only one who can save him from his endless predicament. Ms. Mills has woven a fantastic story of two people who meet in their dreams and eventually come face to face. Myanna is such a strong woman with a backbone fit for a berserker's mate but she has a giddy refreshing innocence surrounding her. She has suffered much with the loss of her mother. She seeks solace in her special place mentally and verbally talking about her loneliness with the dragon statue that for some reason she feels a special connection to. Between these two a friendship is developed and the powerful force of love is discovered. The reader is also treated to an intriguing hint of book #2 at the end of this story that holds a promise of great reading to come.

Interstellar Brides Book 1: Assigned a Mate

When a potential threat against her life forces Eva Daily to seek shelter on another world, she has only one option available to her. She must offer herself to the Interstellar Bride Program. After a deeply humiliating assessment of her suitability, Eva will be assigned a mate and transported to his world to become his bride.

Upon arriving on the desert planet Trion, Eva soon learns that things are quite different than she is used to on Earth. Her assigned mate, the powerful, handsome High Councilor Tark, makes it clear that she will be expected to submit to him completely, and she quickly discovers that disobedience will earn her a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom.

An intimate examination from her new mate leaves Eva blushing crimson, but to her surprise Tark’s mastery of her body arouses her beyond anything she could have ever imagined. Soon enough she finds herself naked, bound, and unable to resist the urge to beg for more as his skillful lovemaking brings her to one shattering climax after another.

It doesn’t take long, however, for Eva to realize that there is much more to Tark than just a dominant brute who will not hesitate to take his misbehaving wife over his knee and redden her bare bottom thoroughly. But just as her passion for him begins to blossom into love, events back on Earth threaten to tear her away from him forever. Can Eva find a way to remain at Tark’s side and in his bed, or will she be left with nothing but memories of the man who has claimed both her body and her heart?

It turned out to be a good story and I'm willing to give next book in the series a try. I listened to the audible version of the story and the narrators did a great job. I enjoyed Eva (Evelyn) and Tark characters. I loved that Eva was a strong character and challenged him at every turn. I also loved that Tark was sweet, protective, and caring when it came to her even though he had a job to do and rules to follow. They desired each other and the sex scenes were hot. The story was steamy from beginning to end. However, I expected a little more action besides sex to happen in this story and was slightly disappointed that there wasn't more. There was a little incident that happened in this story but I thought it would be more action packed. It wasn't but over all, it was still a good, steamy, paranormal read.

Claimed and Mated (Wayward Mates Book 5)

He tried to romance her, but now it is time for his mate to be claimed.

When Catherine Livingston travels to Italy to investigate her sister’s disappearance, it isn’t long before she crosses paths with the man who has been ravishing her almost every night in her dreams. More shocking still, the mysterious, darkly handsome stranger leaves her in no doubt that he is well aware of the connection between them and he has no intention of ignoring it.

Marco DeMedici seems to all but own the city of Florence, and it soon becomes clear that he will not rest until Catherine belongs to him, even if it means carrying her off, stripping her bare, and spanking her until she is sobbing, obedient, and begging him to take her hard and thoroughly.

Despite Catherine’s efforts to run from him, her body’s response to Marco’s stern dominance cannot be denied, and when he reveals that he is an alpha shifter it only makes it more obvious that her world will never be the same. She will be his mate, and the only thing left up to her will be how loudly she screams his name as he claims her as roughly and shamefully as he pleases.

O.M.G! There were definitely times when I had to admit that I would have done the exact same thing as Catherine. It made me laugh to read it. Strong willed as she is, only Marco could have stopped her!

Good mix of drama to make this story more than just spanking naughty mates and detailed sexy scenes for the reader to experience through the characters.

This is Catherine and Marco's story. Catherine is human and Marco, Italian wolf, feels her presence while enjoying a bite with his wolf friend Griffin. Marco chases Catherine hard and Catherine runs. Great lines from Marco to Catherine like 'you have not had a man worthy of your submission, so you have withheld it.' Talk about lines to warm your girlie parts. Catherine has a lot of spunk and sass even after it results in lots of spanks and hard loving to ensure all is forgiven.

What can I say...Marco and Catherine they are one of my favs. Marco is such a compassionate and caring alpha. Cathrine is a sassy independent woman who needs no man. Little does she know, how wrong she is. Delta James is a fantastic writer and I love the imagery she sets in Florence; you feel as if you are there with Catherine seeing what she is seeing. Well done
