EDEN DISCOVERED Released and a Mask Giveaway!

Eden Discovered
(Eden Series #3)
by Lexi Post
Now Available


Animal lover Jaelene Upton doesn’t expect to lose sight of her sister when she follows her through a bizarre travel portal, but that’s exactly what happens when she’s distracted by a cute baby porcupine. Lost, she asks for directions, only to be nearly assaulted by one naked man before being saved by another. Her best guess is she’s landed among a native tribe in the middle of a jungle….but odd reflections and energy sources have her questioning even that assumption.

Theron misses his home in Loraleaf and the brothers of his heart, Konala and Rekah. His new home, a lonely cave, is his escape from seeing the woman he loves happily bonded to Loraleaf’s leaders. When he saves Jaelene from lawbreakers, he finds himself drawn to her intoxicating curiosity and despite his best efforts, he falls for her. But no matter what his heart wants, he can’t offer her anything but safety and a reunion with her sister. Unless…

If Theron can interest Konala in Jaelene as well, then he would only have two more obstacles to conquer, Rekah and Jaelene herself. But Rekah, hurt by Theron’s betrayal, wants nothing to do with Jaelene, and when she discovers Theron’s past love, she refuses to be his consolation price. As the battle with the lawbreakers grows near, Theron realizes this time, he may well lose more than his heart.
 


Excerpt from Eden Discovered:  
   Jaelene didn’t know whether to laugh or cry to find herself escaping from one naked man intent on rape only to run into the arms of another naked man who wanted who knew what.
   “Shhh, we must be quiet if we don’t want him to find you.”
   The soothing baritone voice did more to slow her panic than his actual words. She nodded against his arm and he lifted his hand away. 
   “So in other words, don’t scream.” She raised her head to look at the face of the man that held her and sucked in her breath. His eyes were the deepest brown she’d ever seen. They reminded her of dark chocolate, one of her biggest weaknesses. His cheek bones were prominent and his lips full. The only imperfection was a small bump on his nose.
   Those lips lifted slightly. “Yes.”
   Wow, she needed to focus. She didn’t know this man any more than the blond one.
   His hold on her loosened. “We need to leave here. He will soon tire of chasing my reflection and come looking for you.”
   “Your reflection?”
   “Later. Can you run?”
   “If you mean fast, then no. I think I have small lungs, but if you need help lifting something…” her gaze moved to his arms. “Never mind.”
   He turned his back to her as he grinned.
   He found her amusing, but she was used to that. No one took her seriously except her sister and her boss.
   He bent his knees, and spoke over his shoulder. “Jump on my back. I’ll carry you.”
   She looked at his broad back, the muscles tensed for her weight. A glance below it showed a hard rounded butt and thighs the size of her head. Oh, the man was built. “Are you sure?” Now that was a dumb question.
   “Yes.”
   She glanced back where she’d last seen the blond man headed into the jungle. What choice did she have? At least this man was nice. And seriously hot.

Known by Kendra Elliot


 

The best place to murder someone starts in the Cascade Range of Oregon.  Although the main target stayed alive, others died along the way.

A blizzard filled the mountains with snow and ice, closing roads, and cutting off communication.

This is when Chris Jacobs checks the smell of smoke a distance from his own cabin.  He finds Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter hiding out in their vehicle near a burnt out cabin.

Naturally, he takes them to his cabin, Chris and Gianna exchange glances of interest and arousal, and they’re stuck together for a few days.Product Details

I enjoyed the suspense part of the story as people kept getting murdered by a killer who couldn’t do his job very well –in other words, he still hadn’t gotten his main target, Gianna.

I was all for Gianna and Chris getting it on since they didn’t have a lot else to do in a cabin with a fireplace and beautiful snow tumbled over the forested range outside their  windows, but I felt I didn’t “know” them very well.  Gianna had a flat personality and Chris was too quiet. 

I’ve decided quiet characters aren’t given the best opportunity to express themselves.  Chris is chivalrous, though, in saving the ladies and taking care of them until the killer is discovered.  I’ll give him that.

Known is the fifth story of the series Bone Secrets.  If anyone has read any of the other novels of the series, I’d love to hear what you think!



Happy reading,

Dawn

Smile For The Birdie!

Hey guys, good to see ya’all.  Hope everyone is staying cool.  It’s hotter than nine kinds of hell in Phoenix this week, so those of you in cooler places should count your blessings!

Okay, so I have an update on Little Bird…remember him?  He’s the dove my neighbor rescued and hand-raised.  Well, he’s still the neighborhood party boy and still comes to visit.  (And he’s been asking me where the Butterscotch Martini Girls have been lately.)  LOL

Anyway, the other day my neighbor came over to visit a bit and she and I were sitting out on the back patio talking.  Suddenly, there is a big flutter outside the screened in porch and it’s Little Bird swooping back and forth.  He can hear us chatting on the patio and he’s upset that he can’t get to us.


So we continue to talk, thinking he will light somewhere and calm down.  Uh…nooo.  The longer we talk, the higher his stress level soars.  Within ten minutes, he’s flying back and forth looking for a way through the screen.  He tries to land on the screen, but can’t get hold of it.  



Then he lands on the big cooler that we use to cool the patio, and is craning his neck to see us.  As you can see, he's all puffed up because he's getting mad.  Then he goes back to swooping back and forth.  Occasionally, he will land on the ground and pace back and forth, but he’s soon airborne again.
  





Finally, we tire of teasing him and we are finding it harder and harder to visit over the sound of his flapping wings and frantic cooing.  So I go and push the patio door open.  I’m barely back in my seat before he spots the open door and swoosh, he swoops in the door, almost knocks himself out on the big patio heater, banks, and comes to a not-so-smooth landing on my neighbor’s head.





Now he’s pissed that he couldn’t get in earlier, so when she tries to pet him, he won’t let her.  Instead, he is trying to bite her.  Fortunately, a dove’s beak is shaped in such a way that it’s sort of like being bitten by a toothless puppy.  So Dawn leaves him to stew while we try to continue visiting.  

But that was a no-go.  Why?



Because it’s freaking hard to talk to a woman with a bird on her head! 





That’s my story, birdie and bonkers, and I’m stickin’ to it.  Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!






Love ya,

Kayce
