Book Review-The Haunting of Wolfe Haven-Debbie A. Heaton

Thursday, July 31, 2014

This book had me on my toes! I really couldn't figure out who the "Beta" was and truthfully would never have guessed. It combines mystery, paranormal and some romance in a way I've never read before-but I sincerely loved it. I know you will too!! The about the book will tell you enough without me trying to not give anything away!! A definite 5 in my opinion--maybe higher!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

"Riley Russell is gorgeous, smart, and successful. She also has a broken heart she’s managed to keep secret from everyone—including herself. Three years ago, she walked away from her marriage to entrepreneur Tristan Russell, believing there was no hope for the relationship. But when he reenters her life unexpectedly, Riley must fight to remain independent and in control of the life she has built.

Tristan, as handsome and accomplished as ever, is planning to get remarried, but first he must divorce Riley. To save her broken heart, Riley must confront her feelings for Tristan, his family, and his haunted ancestral house, Wolfe Haven. Along the way, she must navigate a minefield of secrets and mysteries, including arson, betrayal, and murder.
As Riley and Tristan try to find love with each other a second time around, they come to grips with things that go bump in the night. If Riley isn’t careful, she may fall prey to enemies that are closer than she thinks."

New Series Cover Reveal-Harborside Nights-Melissa Foster

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

**READERS** I'm proud to announce my New Adult Romance series releasing in April 2015! 

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to spread his parents’ ashes and to try to figure out his next step. 

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—even if her jealous boyfriend is giving her hell for it. But he doesn’t have anything to be jealous of…or does he? 

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

Book Review-Big Pharma Big Agri Big Conspiracy: A New World Order Spin on Drugs and GMOs-Dina Rae

Do you like reading about various conspiracy theories? Are you well versed in what is good for you to eat and what isn't? Do you know why at one time butter was no good for you--but now margarine is no good? Eggs are another one that has gone back and forth.

I have personally never trusted the FDA (Food & Drug Administration)-they have changed their tune once too often over my life time. At this point if they say something is bad for you I assume rightly or wrongly it is NOT bad for you and they will reverse their "findings" in a couple of years.

What I didn't know was how Big Pharma companies and Big Agri companies get involved in all this--somehow I am not surprised--

If you are interested in what goes into your bodies and the bodies of your families you really should read this book-it is relatively short but with so many references it may make your head spin. Take what you read with a grain of salt--but do your own research-so very much in here is true!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Ever wonder why the world's food supply is controlled by a handful of people? Or wonder why American pharmaceuticals are so expensive? Curious about GMOs or black label warnings? This book is an ode to those who suspect something sinister about the quasi-monopolies of the world's food and drug corporations. Is this another layer to New World Order advancement? Big Pharma, Big Agri, Big Conspiracy is a collection of legitimate research that might make you think twice about crackpot conspiracies.

Amazon/PP-2 Winners-WW-Whole Latte Love-Rachelle Ayala-Ends 8/3

Monday, July 28, 2014

I have read many of Rachel Ayala's novels and there has yet to be one that I have not simply loved. She will have you laughing, gasping, sometimes even have you shaking your head at how you can actually picture things happening in real life.

The world of investment banking-especially in NYC or other large cities like in California, is cut throat and that is putting it mildly. Carina, an Oriental young girl brought up in a strict home has only one thing in mind--to keep her sights on the job. She has never had any boyfriends because her parents always instilled in her the need to succeed first in school-now in her chosen profession. She managed to snag an internship at a prestigious firm where she hopes they will want to hire her permanently. When she asks an old friend if she knows where she can rent--things start to get interesting!

She moves in with a sexy barista and lays down the rules--in writing--which he agrees to--somewhat. Heavens Carina loves rules and even more so when they are in writing AND signed!! At work she has some trouble just because she is female------when her female boss says she will help her if Carina when asked to jump will say how high---darn-I refuse to give away this story--

Her sexy barista friend has a hidden past of his own-----he is not exactly the free wheeling rock star he appears--well he is--but---

Okay--it is a five--read it--you will love it!! It is one of those new genre Young Adult--I found nothing offensive what so ever-but I leave that to your discretion as to whether you want your teen to read this or not.

Investment banking intern Carina Chen doesn’t need any distractions—especially the sexy, guitar-playing barista she rooms with for the summer.

Free spirit Dylan Jewell appreciates the delightful universe of women who vie for his attention. His goal in life is to do good, make happy coffee, and help the homeless.

When Carina moves in, she insists on rules of conduct to quell her instant attraction to Dylan. But when her boss asks her to turn Dylan into a businessman, she can’t think of a reason not to take advantage of his hospitality.

Their chemistry is white hot, but Dylan refuses to play Carina’s game, unable to understand how he can fall in love with a woman who puts profits in front of people. When Carina realizes Dylan isn’t budging, she risks all to gain a single night with him. Will her gambit backfire or will Dylan discover Carina’s true heart before she runs away with his?

Set in Berkeley, California, Whole Latte Love is an opposites-attract romance mixing bluesy rock music, hot, steamy love scenes, and financial shenanigans.

Steamy love scenes and language. Suitable for readers 18+.
