Zombies! Not your average St. Patrick's day.


Zombies, drama, romance…what’s not to love?!

Okay, so this isn't a St. Patrick's day themed post. But I'll toss in a shamrock decorated pooch for the fun of it! Adorable! I hope that fills my requirement of St. Patrick's day festivities. Let's get back to zombies, shall we?



Demon Night by M.J. Haag

Every secret has a price.

It’s a truth that Angel knows too well. Since the hellhounds and infected started to roam, Angel has guarded her secret carefully. But, she’s growing weaker by the day and needs help. In this new plague-ravaged world, the weak don’t survive long, and the useless are quickly abandoned. That’s why Angel’s secret needs to stay secret. If anyone found out about the baby she carried, they’d ditch her in a heartbeat to save themselves.

To make herself an asset, she offers her services as a relationship expert to one of the dark fey, who rose with the hellhounds, in exchange for food. Shax is eager to win over Hannah, and if Angel can help make that happen, just maybe she won’t be kicked out when she has the baby.

Falling for her "client" was never in her plans.

Sin and Magic by K.F. Breene



Alexis may have found out she’s more than just a crystal ball psychic, but she still loves her life in the cracks of society between the normal world and the magical world.  And she loves her two wards, Mordecai and Daisy.  And she has a hard time admitting and hiding her love for Kieran, the Demigod and son of Valens, a horrible and powerful Demigod.

Kieran needs Alexis in more ways than one…mostly two ways.  Alexis is the only one who can free his mother’s soul from entrapment (she needs to get her seal skin), and he needs her love.  Of course, it’s something he can’t have to keep her safe from his father.Sin & Magic

So how can Alexis use her newly found magic to battle Valens to achieve Kieran’s first need for his mother’s soul?  How can Alexis battle her own love for Kieran when she knows it’s safer to stay unknown?

Dressed in her flood pants and other assortment of goodwill clothing, Alexis still makes a scene when she enters the life of the magic. She doesn’t care if she doesn’t fit in, but rather she will take care of business along with her new sidekick, Bria, a necromancer.

Kieran vows to keep her safe, but will that make him deny the one outrageous woman that turns his heart to mush?

This is an endearing story with a lot of wit, strong-minded women, and love that just might be as powerful as the magic.

Veronica Reviews: A WICKED REPUTATION by Liana Lefey

A Wicked Reputation 
(Once Wicked #3)
Liana LeFey

4.5 Stars
  
"Very few people truly know themselves…we all invent ourselves daily”

Lady Diana Haversham finds herself an outcast in a time when gossip and perception rule all and a person’s reputation means everything.  But never one to back down from a fight, Lady Diana rebrands herself and with the help of a benefactor, finds herself one of the most wanted courtesans in England.

Lord Lucas Blackthorn has recently returned from his exile imposed by his family.  His eyes can’t believe that the once meek and shy Lady Haversham is now the mistress of Lord Harrow—a man with certain deviances according to stories circulating amongst the ton.  The gambler in him sees getting her into his bed as a high stakes game he’s eager to play, but when the truth of her wicked reputation comes to light, he finds that his heart is all in and the rules of the ton be damned.
 
In truth, life was painful, unfair, and utterly without mercy.  Especially when it came to love.”

A Wicked Reputation is a delicious historical with a heroine that is no shrinking wallflower.  Loved Diana and her approach to life and not giving a damn what others thought of her, but fought fiercely for those she loves.  While this is the third installment to the Once Wicked series, it may be read standalone.  Liana LeFey is a new to me author, and I can’t wait to read more!  Absolutely loved, and highly recommend!

About Elkhorn In The Moonlight:
The search for stolen Sacred Arrows leads to much more.
Marcus Blackhawk is on a mission to locate the Sacred Arrows that were stolen from the Cheyenne Nation. When he learns that someone has seen the arrows he leaves immediately to track the person down and get more information.
Nicole Lancaster ekes out a living in a small town by helping her brother run a motel and working part-time in a restaurant. Her mundane life suddenly becomes more exciting when Marcus arrives in town asking about some arrows that she came upon years ago while hiking in the Elkhorn Mountains. The gorgeous man makes her heart beat fast, but she knows he’d never be interested in a Plain Jane like herself.
When Marcus offers Nicole a large sum of cash to lead him to the cave where she saw the arrows, she takes him up on the offer. After a three-day hiking trip through the mountains they locate the cave, but then the unthinkable happens, and they find themselves trapped inside. As they wait, hopeful they’ll be rescued, they give into the passion that’s been simmering between them.
Will help arrive in time to save them? And if so, can their night of passion ever be anything more? Marcus has no interest in an actual relationship, and Nicole wants the whole nine yards.

Excerpt: “You pass it every time you go into Mason. The other two are on the other side of the overpass. Sandpiper Mine you can see from the highway, but you have to go on Gulch Mine to get to the Elkhorn Mountains. The mountain ranges there are the highest, and there are a lot of vertical drops, so you’d have to travel where you can walk it. It’s not something where you can climb it and be there. You have to go in a roundabout way.” “Do you have a very clear vision of where this cave is, and how to get to it?” he asked. “Yes. I remember it clear as day now.” “How soon can you get yourself ready for the hike?” “What? I’m not going there. You are. I can’t just take off and leave, I have work to do. Plus, it’s way too cold to go there right now. The mountains in that area still have snow on them.” “You think I would know where to go by the information that you provided?” “I gave you very good information,” she said. “Do you have the coordinates for GPS?” “No. I don’t.” “So, you think that I, who have never traveled these mountains before, would have no problem finding that cave?” Marcus’s eyes narrowed as he regarded her. “I don’t have any idea how you intend to get there. Personally, I think you should wait until summer to do it. The weather in the mountains is unpredictable.” Marcus sat thinking about the situation for a second, and then he said, “Name your price.” “Huh?” “I said, name your price,” he repeated. “I need you to lead me to that cave, and I have to do it this week.” “You’re not listening to me. I can’t take you there. I have work to do here. I can’t leave to go on a weeklong camping trip.” “You can for a price,” he said grimly. “You can’t buy me off to get what you want,” Nicole said defensively. “Everyone is willing to do certain things for a certain price. Will thirty thousand get you interested and willing to go?” “I…I…thirty thousand? No, I won’t be bought,” she stammered. “Look, Nicole. Let’s quit with the games. I’m going to go there to get those Sacred Arrows, and you are the one who is going to take me there and bring me back. I’m offering you thirty thousand for a week…week and a half of work. I think your brother and his wife can handle the motel for that length of time.” “I’m sorry.” She stopped for a few seconds. “I won’t be bullied. My answer is no.” She stood up to leave. “Just think about this. Like I said, thirty thousand for a week and a half of work. Think what you could do with that money. Think of all the possibilities and opportunities you’d have. As for the weather, I know you have lived through worse weather right here in Mason. You know what to expect. I would not let you go up there without your GPS, your cellphone and satellite phone, your two-way radio, and letting your brother know exactly where you’re at should there ever be an emergency. I’ll give you until tomorrow at noon to tell me your decision, and if I were you, I’d think about this very seriously. I intend to have my way in this,” he said sternly. Grabbing his maps and the pictures she gave him, he walked back to the causeway and to his room.

Hello, March!


Hello, gentle readers!
Can you believe it’s March already! Weren’t we welcoming 2019 just yesterday? Gosh, time really does fly when one gets older. Amazing how that is, isn’t it?
Lots of things happening this month. Several birthdays within my extended family. DH’s is coming up, too, and it’s a big one! Not sure if he’s excited or dreading the fact that he’s now eligible for Medicare. My son is coming to visit this month, too! Can’t wait to see him.
But today, we’re celebrating our friend, Dolly. She’s a remarkable woman and I love her to pieces. I’ve never met anyone quite like her (though her daughters are just as amazing)! She’s in her nineties (and doesn’t look a day over 60…just goes to show what good genes and good living can do) and very active in community service. I’ve never known a woman her age (or any age, for that matter) who so willingly gives her time and her kindness to those who need it most. She truly has the biggest heart and the most loving attitude of anyone I know. And that makes her very special to me.
That’s not to say I don’t know (and love) others who have big hearts and loving attitudes. I do. I am so very blessed that way.  
And that’s about all for me―time to go cut up my veggies and make my salads for the work week so I can go have some birthday cake!

Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.
Marie

BEAST OF EDEN by Lexi Post Available for Preorder! Releases March 28

Beast of Eden 
by Lexi Post


Can anyone control the Beast?

Xavia Jones, a zoologist with a focus on evolution, is only on planet Eden for two days before one of her Edenists is exiled from his city. Furious over the injustice of his banishment, she stows away with him. But once outside the walls of Tolba, in a jungle filled with criminals and a beast she could never have imagined, she wonders if she did the right thing.

Lyka feels the weight of responsibility for Xavia’s safety and despite believing she’d be better back in the city with the two brothers of his heart, he’s honored that she’s with him. Now he just has to convince his old friend and long-time exile, Davos, that keeping her with them is best for everyone. As far as he’s concerned, only the beast can truly protect her.

Davos blames himself for every Kindred of Eden being exiled from Tolba. It was his lack of control over the Beast that caused the city to distrust his Kindred. Now he must ensure they all survive in his jungle home. It is a hard life for a man and no place for a woman. A woman would cause disruption and chaos. A woman could release the Beast.
