Reborn 
(The Awakening Volume 1) 
by Dean Murray



True love never dies.

In just a few days a new arrival at Selene's high school will turn her entire world upside down. She's never met anyone so attractive—or so mysterious—before this, but Jace's unyielding insistence that they've known each other for decades can't be denied—not given how familiar he feels to her.

In the hidden world of gods and fairies what you don't know can get you killed faster than anything else and only those you love have any chance of saving you.

Deception: 
Invasion Series Book One
by MacKayla Daniel




What would happen to the world if we knew aliens existed?

Two weeks ago, a US military jet disappeared from radar 280 miles northwest of Fairbanks, Alaska. Twelve hours after the official investigation terminated, a clandestine group of aliens known as the Alliance, launches a search and rescue helicopter to find the downed aircraft.

As a full-blooded Nobian warrior, Captain Jessica Windsor thinks it's time the men in her life, her father, an illustrious general, and the arrogant Colonel Orlov, understand she has a mind of her own. She’s on board the secret recovery flight, prepared to use her supernatural skills to keep them all alive. But a sinister force tracks their movements and sets up an ambush. Crewmembers die and Jessica’s in a battle for her life.

Alliance officer, Colonel Alexander Orlov is the commander of the Rapid Response Team, an elite unit of soldiers known for their vicious counterstrikes to terrorist attacks. When the helicopter crashes, his team’s mission is to locate survivors and determine whether the evidence indicates foul play. What he discovers doesn’t surprise him: the Korelians are here and have an evil agenda.

Together, Jessica and Alex venture deeper into the dangers of hostile Korelians bent on a centuries’ old revenge. However, when Alex learns completing their goal depends on Jessica mating a Korelian warlord, he takes matters into his own hands. Romantic skirmishes occur, and the biggest ones are on the frontlines of the bedroom.

The future of humankind is uncertain as the aliens’ battle over the planet. If the Nobians lose the war, the Korelians will enslave and breed us like cattle.

Now you know the truth. The aliens are here. They are your neighbors, coworkers and friends. Stay Vigilant. Be aware of your surroundings, and keep your doors locked because that creaking or odd sounding bump in the night just might be a Korelian lurking in the shadows.

Merging real-life historical events with the author’s vivid imagination, DECEPTION, the first book in the Invasion series, is a fast-paced paranormal thriller with enough action and romance to keep readers enthralled.

Split Second
by Douglas E. Richards



What if you found a way to send something back in time? But not weeks, days, or even minutes back. What if you could only send something back a fraction of a second? Would this be of any use? You wouldn't have nearly enough time to right a wrong, change an event, or win a lottery.

Nathan Wexler is a brilliant physicist who thinks he's found a way to send matter a split second back into the past. But before he can even confirm his findings, he and his wife-to-be, Jenna Morrison, find themselves in a battle for their very lives. Because while time travel to an instant earlier seems useless, Jenna comes to learn that no capability in history has ever been more profound or far-reaching.

Now, as Jenna fights to defeat the powerful forces arrayed against her, nothing less than the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. . .

SPLIT SECOND is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller, one that will have readers pondering the nature of time, and of reality, long after they've read the last page.

A SEAL's Oath 
(SEALs of Chance Creek Book 1)
by Cora Seton




Wanted: one wife, one baby. Love not required.

Navy SEAL Boone Rudman has six months to find a wife and get her pregnant or he’ll lose his chance to win 1500 acres of prime Montana ranch land. So when he discovers Riley Eaton living on his new ranch, all grown up from the tomboy she used to be, he decides she’ll do for his bride—whether or not she’s got other plans.


Riley Eaton quit her job, sold her car and moved to Chance Creek with her friends to pursue the dreams she’d put on hold for far too long. She has no idea her uncle sold the ranch out from under her—and has no plans to marry any time soon—but when Boone shows up, sexy as hell after fifteen years in the service, she begins to wonder if her priorities are all wrong.


When duty turns to desire, Boone launches a campaign to win Riley’s heart. But is it too little, too late? Or can he convince Riley to forget the past and create a future worth fighting for?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?








"It's Monday! What are you reading?" is a fun meme hosted by Kathryn @ The Book Date. This is where we share the books we have read the last week and our reading plans for this week.




Book Reviewed



Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty. 

Even so, she’s inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet’s soul. Which means she’s still searching for something. Searching for peace. Searching for the less…that’s more. 

And when the foundation of her life is pulled out from under her, grieving, she goes to the mountains to find her oasis. She hits Carnal, Colorado and decides to stay. 

Deke Hightower lost everything at the age of two. He lost it again at fifteen. His life has not been about bounty. It’s been about learning to live with less, because there’s no way to get more. 

Deke’s also watched all his friends go down to the women who gave them what they needed. He wants that for himself. But he knows that search isn’t going to be easy because he’s a rider. His home is the road. That’s the only place he can breathe. And the woman who takes her place at his side has to do it sitting on the back of his bike. 

When Deke meets Justice, he knows she’s not that woman. She’s cute. She’s sweet. And she’s into him, but she’s got it all and Deke knows he won’t fit into that. So he holds her at arm’s length. Establishes boundaries. And Justice will take it because she wants Deke any way he’ll let her have him.

But when Justice finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game, Deke makes a decision. 


When he does, he has no idea he’s just opened himself up to bounty.

Olivia shouldn't be checking out the sexy older guy at the coffee shop. She should remind herself what happened the last time she was drawn to a man.

Olivia should know better than to start something that could ruin both their lives.

The trouble is, sometimes the things we shouldn't do become the hardest habits to break.


Lindsey Baker and Will Claxton had once been best friends, until betrayal drove them apart.

Now someone is sabotaging Lindsey’s ranch, and Will seems the most likely candidate. Although Lindsey wants to believe he’s innocent, he’s the one with the motive. Years earlier, her father had foreclosed on a loan that cost Will his family’s land. Still, he insists he had nothing to do with the ‘accidents’ plaguing Lindsey's ranch. He wants his property returned, but he plans to buy it fair and square.

Lindsey wants to believe the man she’s loved since childhood, but she fears he'll do almost anything to reclaim his family's ranch. His sudden interest in her as a woman is too convenient. Can she trust a man who’s never seen her as anything but a friend, when she knows he’ll do anything to regain his family’s heritage – including breaking her heart once again? 



In the follow up to “Chasing the Wild Sparks,” Hadley Beckett’s quest for wedded bliss perseveres…

What would you do if the love of your life were closer to making your dreams come true?

Riding high in her relationship with her sportscaster/local daredevil boyfriend Finn Wilder, Hadley Beckett makes plans concerning her future with Finn. Big plans. 

Infamously anti-marriage, Finn promised Hadley he’d consider taking her to the altar if she gives him more time. Diving headfirst and with encouragement from friends, Hadley formulates her own way to handle Finn if he can’t commit to her soon. 

Knowing she has an uphill climb ahead of her, Hadley is still determined to succeed, yet is she unwittingly destined to fail?

The bastard child of Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 and Stephen King’s CARRIE, KAI explores how one innocent girl becomes the target of enormous rage living inside another girl-who is seemingly from another world. 

Satsuki Takamoto is an invisible otaku teenager in Hiroshima. The only thing she has going for her is the upcoming birth of her sister. No longer will she be alone. But when her mother has a gory miscarriage right in front of her, Satsuki loses her one chance at happiness. She spirals into a deep depression, shutting out everyone and everything by locking herself inside her bedroom-for good. Her sadness, however, pales in comparison to her uncontrollable anger. It spreads like a nuclear fire, ambivalent to what or who it destroys, and won’t stop until Satsuki accepts her sister’s death. 

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world in Evanston, Illinois, Seul Bi Rissiello can’t sleep because every time she closes her eyes, she relives her adoptive parents’ gruesome deaths. Why is she thinking so much about them now, ten years afterward? As she struggles with working at a clinic for the mentally disturbed, Seul Bi starts to unravel under the weight of living a lonely life and being twice an orphan. Her life devolves into a series of ominous and dangerous hallucinations that threaten not only her sanity, but her very existence as well. 

As both girls struggle to understand what is happening to them, their enigmatic connection comes into focus, raising the question: What if all the suffering in your life was carefully choreographed by somebody you’ve never met?

Prompt of the week
What are you most thankful for (in the blogging world)?

Of course, thankful for bloggers and authors/publishers!

About what Alison said regarding the struggle of a long time blogger... I feel it ALL THE TIME! It's becoming a real struggle for me to keep posting (reviews). YES, losing your old blogger buddies whom you used to visit and exchange ideas with...aww it can be depressing.

Been blogging since 2008 (Multiply to Blogger) and I've picked up some other hobbies like gardening, scrap booking, and lately, sewing (yikes still a beginner). Aside from that,  kids are now both in school and they make me crazy busy with their assignment and projects. Before, I was up around 4 in the morning reading and blog hopping but now it's because of school stuff. Sooo... how about you?

Don't Remember
by Rich Silvers



How much will Julian sacrifice to find the truth?

Julian Barnes makes a bet with fate: if he can drive through the intersection without stopping, it will be a sign that he won’t lose Julia, the woman he loves.

But instead Julian wakes up in a hospital, his body shattered from a car accident he can’t remember. The prominent neurosurgeon who broadsided him swears his light was green. An eyewitness disagrees. A woman is dead, and the surgeon is accused of manslaughter.

A stranger warns Julian that if his memory returns and he tells anyone what really happened, Julia will die, too.

What don’t they want him to remember? Julian knows he got in the car an hour before the accident, on his way to see Julia. But then…nothing.

Why was he driving away from Julia’s apartment when the car hit him?

What did he see just before the impact?

Julian bears the weight of not knowing. His quest will take him to places he never expected...

Q - When you settle in for the night with a good book, do you read until you can't stay awake or simply have a nightly page goal? (Silver's Reviews)


A -  If it's a really good book, I could never put it down even if I need to be up early. Happened a few times, slept only an hour then went to work with overtime. This is actually  the very one thing my husband hates the most. He rarely gets angry but if  he caught me doing this, I'd get a tongue-lashing for a whole week.  




Kindle on Discount ($0.99): The Duke's Ever Burning Passion by Charlotte Stone




The Duke's Ever Burning Passion
by Charlotte Stone



Are second chances truly possible?
The Duke of Sermont, Shep, has spent every summer since childhood at Pritchford Place... with his best friend's sister. Lady Julia Frederickson.
As they grew, their relationship grew into something else...
Love.
Writing letters back and forth to one another and making plans has been a part of them...
That is ... until Shep did something that broke her heart - he married someone else.
Since then...
She has spent her life wearing a mask.
She vows to never let anyone know how much Shep meant to her.
When Shep is widowed and comes to stay at Pritchford Place, just like old times, they antagonize one another as usual.
Is it because they hate one another? Or... because they cannot stay away from one another?
Who cares if he thinks she is the Ice Queen- cold, cruel and unfeeling?
Julia knows who she is really is, even if Shep continually misunderstands her.

"A man who loves me? A man whom I love? A family? It is all I have ever really wanted," she said.
"I never knew that about you," he whispered as he turned to look out the window.
"I am beginning to think you did not know me at all."

But is it too late for Shep to realize he made a terrible mistake all those years ago?
Can Julia forgive Shep for breaking her heart?
What about another suitor who will get in his way?
