I'm now reading How to Date a Dragon by Ashlyn Chase. It's second in a new trilogy about dating paranormals. The third book will be out in March but here's the first two ~

Flirting Under a Full Moon

How to Date a Dragon

And the summary is ~

"Bliss Russo thought nothing exciting ever happened in her life. Until her building caught on fire and she had to be carried out of the flames in the arms of a gorgeous fireman. Sure, her apartment is now in shambles and she'll have to start her huge work project completely from scratch. But at least her love life is finally looking up...if only she can find her red-hot rescuer again. Dragon shapeshifter Drake Cameron is the last of his clan, and the loneliness is starting to claw at him. He's met only one woman who might be able to stand the shock of his true nature. After all, she barely batted an eyelash when her home burned down. And feeling her curves against him was just as hot as the inferno. Just when he thinks he'll never track her down, she walks into his firehouse-with no idea what she's about to get herself into"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy reading everyone!

She is a mystery, a woman on the run, hunted by two different men. As much as she longs to be captured by the magnificent warrior Phelan, she knows she must resist the temptation. A vengeful evil is stalking her, watching her every move, a madman who will stop at nothing to possess her power. Once, she sold a piece of her soul for magic. Is she willing to risk Phelans life, and give up her heart...for love?

Yes, I did. I am. It is getting really good. Heather took a tumble into a lake and caught a bad cold and was feverish and ill for a few days, but she is getting better. She still is no where near her full strength, so she will have to stay in bed for a while.

Laura, had a bad migraine yesterday so was not concentrating very well and forgot to come here. Sorry about that. Poor Heather. Hope she gets her full strength back soon.

Sorry to hear about your migraine, Darla. Do you get them often? I never get headaches. Heather got back up to her full strength and then it was her turn to nurse Duncan because he got cut by a sword while he was taking back some cattle that had been stolen and his leg was a real mess and Heather held him while her maidservant put some oil in the wound to cleanse it and Duncan was very ill for a while, but recovered and I finished that book last night and I am now reading Consuming Fire and it is about a woman called Maggie Robertson and she has entered a nunnery to escape some problems that she has been having with her father, and a friend of the family showed up at the nunnery hospice badly hurt and the nuns took care of him and he was very sick and feverish from his wounds for about a night, but recovered and told Heather that her father was dying and wanted to see her, and she didn't want to go, but went anyway and her father is still hanging in there, but doesn't have much longer.

Darla~ Hope that nasty migraine doesn't come back. I did finally finish the romance book, The House on Persimmon Road by Jackie Weger. I give it a 5 stars. I enjoyed reading it as it was such a nice romance story and funny too. I think I described this story already. I can say that it is a good read and done well. So now, I am looking for another one to read. That is the hard part.

4 years ago

Laura, I get migraines once every month and a half or so. I used to get them much more often but something changed and I rarely get them now. Glad you don't get headaches. It's great Heather got back up to her full strength. I'm sure she needed it to nurse Duncan as men make the worst patients! Hope you enjoy Consuming Fire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sally, glad you enjoyed The House on Persimmon Road. Hoppe you find something else good to read.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I finished Somewhere to Dream and it was excellent. I give it 5 stars.

I'm now reading Heart of Venom by Jennifer Estep. It's part of a series about a woman named Gin Blanco who is an assassin called the Spider. In each book she takes care of some bad guys who are hurting innocent people. The books in the series are ~

Spider's Bite

Web of Lies

Venom

Tangled Threads

Spider's Revenge

By a Thread

Widow's Web

Deadly Sting

Heart of Venom

The Spider

And the summary is ~

When I say you're a dead man, take that literally. To me, killing people is like a day at the salon: cut and dry. Well, more like rinse and repeat when you moonlight as the assassin the Spider. But my last spa day ended redder than my freshly painted nails after a twisted Fire elemental and his goons kidnapped my close friend Sophia Deveraux and nearly killed her sister Jo-Jo in the process. Up Ashland's most dangerous mountains, and deep into the heart of its blackest woods--I'll track these thugs no matter where they take Sophia. It doesn't matter what kinds of elemental magic they try to throw at me, my Ice and Stone powers can take the heat and then some. I "will" get Sophia back, over their dead bodies. Because anybody that hurts Gin Blanco's family "becomes" a body.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sorry to hear that. Yes. Duncan was very feverish and fussy, but he soon got settled. Consuming Fire is still great. Maggie's father has about three months to live. He became an alcoholic after Maggie's mother died and all that alcohol abuse has caught up to him and given him jaundice and some other issues. Nothing much is going on right now. Maggie is still at home, but wants to go back to the nunnery.

Laura, thank you. Glad you're enjoying Consuming Fire.

And the summary is ~

Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy's incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own. To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin's mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion, culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.

It is really good so far, Darla. He was murdered, so he was punished accordingly, and now Killian and her son are back at the castle and Ruarch wants her to come down to the great hall for supper, but she does not want to see people after what has happened, but she will be joining the rest of the castle for breakfast tomorrow.

I'm now reading Heart of Stone by Christine Warren. It's first in a new series about gargoyles and demons. I got the book for $5.03 with the last of one of my Christmas Amazon gift cards. Here's the summary ~

Ella Harrow is trying to carve out a normal life for herself. Well, as normal as an art geek with psychic abilities can hope for. As museum docent and gift-shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people—and her powers in check—while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves. But how on earth is she supposed to act normal when a thousand-year-old statue on the museum’s terrace suddenly comes to life?

 

HEART OF STONE

 

Not your ordinary gargoyle, Kees has been asleep for eons, waiting for a portent of evil to wake him from his slumber. Kees isn’t a vision; he’s a bat-winged guardian created to protect the world from the seven demons of the Dark. Somehow, Ella triggered his reawakening. Maybe the demons have been unleashed? Maybe his heart is finally ready to be chiseled open? The fate of the world isn’t carved in stone… yet.

It sure is. I finished it last night and am reading A Love Forbidden, which is Kathleen Morgan's last book. It is about Shilo Wainwrigt rather impulsively accepting a job as a teacher at the White River Indian Agency in northwestern Colorado, and she is currently trying to get the Ute Indians to send their children to school, but only one child is attending, and the people are not open to sending their children to school, at least not right now.

The staff—and a frisky Calico kitten named Twinkletoes—adopts Holly and her new dog on arrival.  But someone in this friendly town is bad to the bone. One of the employees at the inn has been killed in a hit-and-run accident—which is looking anything but accidental. Now Holly and her furry companions will have to nose out the murderer before someone else gets muzzled.

Books graphicsHello Darla~ I just got through reading a romance novel. Titled, Texas Secrets: The Gallaghers of Morning Star by Jean Brashear. I give it a five stars. It was funny and always got you wondering if the couple was ever going to get together. Basically a woman, Maddie, from NY has to stay at this house for 30 days out in the country side due to a Will of her father's friend made correcting a wrong that was done to the father. But the father's son Boone is also there in wanting the house. So it starts off crazy in getting at each other and then solving a family mystery on Maddie's side. So it is quite an interesting story.

I'm reading the third book of the Forever Fae series. So far I am liking it. Just wanted to let you know I'm still reading but takes a little time for me to get through a book.

Laura, sounds like a lot happened. I've read the dragon riders of Pern series or at least most of them. Hope you enjoy Dragonholder.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sally, glad you enjoyed the romance book. Hope you continue to like the third book in the Forever Fae series. Glad you're still reading. It's okay that it takes you awhile to get thru a book. Is Texas Secrets an e-book or a regular book?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I finished Murder, She Barked yesterday and it was excellent. I give it 5 stars. Can hardly wait  for the next book in the series.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm now reading Because of You by Jessica Scott. It's a military romance and is good so far. I'm 16% of the way thru it. Here's the summary ~

Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there's more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he'll never see again- until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.  Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there's a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels - for the first time in a long time - like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty -it's a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected - her deepest desire.
