New Release ~ BJORN CURSED by N.J. Walters


Bjorn Cursed

Forgotten Brotherhood, Book 4


N.J. Walters

Blurb ~ 

Lucifer is up to his old tricks, causing problems for the Forgotten Brotherhood. This time, he’s had a woman removed from the Norse afterlife and placed her right in the path of Bjorn Knutson. After the slaughter of his wife and family centuries ago, tortured and broken, Bjorn was cursed as the first Norse werewolf. Now he’s been tasked by Odin himself with killing the woman who escaped. Failure is not an option.

Before he can track her, he stumbles across a woman being accosted by three men in the middle of the night. Even though she’s human, he intervenes and is shocked to recognize the face of the one woman he could never kill — his wife Anja.

She’s also the one he’s hunting…and if he doesn’t kill her then both their lives are at stake.

Teaser ~

With the tattoos flowing over his face and body, he was like something out of a nightmare rather than anyone’s idea of the perfect lover. He’d always been a warrior, more at home on a battlefield than trying to broker peace talks. Now he was even deadlier. People feared him—humans and paranormals alike. Only she’d ever looked at him with love.

A POCKET IN TIME (Time Weavers Inc. #2) by Lexi Post is available for Pre-order!


A Pocket in Time 

(Time Weavers, Inc. #2)

by Lexi Post

Releasing February 22!

The long awaited second book in the Time Weavers Inc. series is now available for pre-order!

Katz Almira’s mission is clear—travel to the past, steal the note that ruins the world, travel back to the present. Easy. She’s the best pickpocket Time Weavers, Inc. has ever had. Posing as a poor widow in Regency London, she convinces her target, Lord John Byron, a man as sexy as he is wealthy, to take her in off the streets. But at her request to keep her hidden, instead of his cushy manor, he allows her to stay in a warehouse full of orphan boys he cares for there.

It’s the perfect place to hide, and bonus, her new roommates can help her find the mysterious note. With John as their pseudo-father, they know what he does every day, and with who. Katz can’t afford any distractions, but she soon finds herself getting attached to the orphans—and John—even helping him plan for their futures.

Each day she spends in the past is another day closer to her deadline, another day closer to returning to her own time, and another day John and this makeshift family get dangerously closer to her heart. But Katz staying in the past would have dire consequences for them all…

Home Repairs and Writing


       Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
I love my house. I really do (and it’s a good thing, too, because with the pandemic, the DH and I are spending more and more time at home). It’s the perfect size for us and our four-legged fur babies. We’ve been here for twenty-four years. But, it’s an older home (it’s actually my age) and back when they built it, we didn’t have some of the compliance rules we have now so when something breaks or isn’t working right or we try to do an update, we’re always in for a surprise. When we ripped up the carpet in the living room, we found lovely hardwood flooring…except it was only in one part of the living room…the extension that was added years later was just pieces of plywood fitted together. Plus, whoever laid the carpeting poured tar all over the hardwood to make sure the moisture barrier stayed in place. Really? Who does that?                   
Anyway, you may remember the saga of my old house and having most of my plumbing replaced last year. Well, the plumbing issues returned (in the places where it wasn’t replaced) and I realize, I should have had the entire house replumbed because we developed a leak…
In our younger days, my DH and I would fix these problems ourselves, but as with older homes, we’re not as young as we used to be and find we just can’t do it (heck, sometimes just rolling out of bed the wrong way makes us hurt for days! Can you imagine trying to twist ourselves into pretzels to reach a pipe? The leak was behind the kitchen sink!)
I am thankful that I have good plumbers. They come in (fully masked and with a ‘can do’ attitude), assess the issue, and fix it. No muss, no fuss. I’m also thankful I have a crawl space under the house which made the pipes easier for them to reach and replace.
As I sat here listening to the high-pitched whir of the drill (the pipe needed to be cut out entirely and replaced), it occurred to me that home repairs are a little like writing. You’re going along and everything is going smoothly until KABOOM—you develop a leak or write yourself into a corner. There are only two options at that point—you can try to write yourself out of that corner by patching it up as best you can or—and this is a big one—you go back to where you started writing yourself into that problem and delete those words. It may be only a few sentences or paragraphs or it could be pages and pages. Maybe even a whole chapter! In the end, you hope the fixes you put in place were the right ones.
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

New Release ~ WHAT SHE WANTS TONIGHT by Jillian Neal


What She Wants Tonight

Holder County Series, Book 3


Jillian Neal

Blurb –

Meridian Holder has long believed that most gorgeous men ruin their God-given gifts as soon as they open their mouths.

Just because that theory doesn’t prove true with her boss, District Attorney Jack Denton, it doesn’t mean she would ever do something as stupid as risking her position as his A.D.A. to gain his affections.

Until he has the one thing she needs—to protect her family from a lawsuit without his interference.

Lucky for her, Jack has needs of his own—specifically, a date to his former fiancée’s wedding. Surely, she can hold her own out in Bourbon Country with his blue blood, debutante family for a week.

She’s certain that with a little persuasion, they can negotiate a trade. If he can also scratch that little itch that she gets whenever she thinks of him, all the better.

Jack has spent the last four years imagining Meridian’s long, auburn hair wrapped around his fingers while he indulges her lethal mind and body.

As much as he would love to spend the week scratching any itch Meridian has, taking her with him would expose her to his family’s vitriol and to the secrets he protects at all cost.

Meridian never backs down from a challenge.
That is not an attribute his family appreciates.

Together, they discover the only thing that burns hotter than a whiskey-fire feud between their families is the passion that ignites the two of them.

When their loyalties are divided, will all of those lust-filled nights be enough to save them both?

Author Bio – 

There are a few things Jillian Neal knows for certain—coffee should be hot, sweet, and readily available--just like her book’s heroes. Good chips and homemade salsa make the world a better place. Girls with naturally curly hair shouldn’t have to live in the Southern humidity, but she’s sure the heat inspires all of her smart, steamy romances so she’s decided it’s worth the trade.

 When Jillian isn’t writing about heart and panty melting heroes, you’ll find her in her kitchen whipping up new recipes, trying to give her teenage sons advice, or flirting with her husband who’s always willing to help her figure out the spicy scenes in her stories.

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

 When a chance for retribution is handed to you, will you take it?

Sage Singer prefers a solitary life, few friends, male or female, but rather the intricacies of creating and renewing old recipes in the dark of the night at the local bakery.

Josef Weber plays an important humanitarian in the local village.  His ninety-plus age doesn't keep him from being active with the community. He meets Sage at the bakery, and each have an unusual interest in one another.   

It's after Joseph requests Sage's help in a risky plan, that Sage takes her concern to the Justice Department.  Leo Stein responds to  her call.

Leo has a solitary job, too, and the urgency of the familiar story Sage brings to him takes a few discussions to sink in as the real thing.

Before Leo and Sage acknowledge their chemistry, a decades old mystery from WWII must be unraveled to allow their hearts and minds to accept changes in the present.

The parallel story of Sage's grandmother can bring you to tears and an understanding for the need for revenge.  Sage isn't sure it's her duty to mess with a plan bordering on illegal.  Josef doesn't consider if he deserves a relief of his former life.  Leo wants to legally charge the wrongdoer, and then have the chance to get closer to Sage.  

It's up to Sage on what will happen in the end, and that's a huge order.

Deeply riveting and loaded with emotions that will melt you into the pages.

Happy reading,

So while he’s not looking for a relationship, he has no problem standing outside his apartment looking intimidating as his sweet neighbor finally kicks her verbally abusive ex to the curb.
