Sassy Ladies and the Men Who Love Them

Leave a comment

One of my favorite authors, Milly Taiden, has written a wonderfully funny series packed with action, sarcasm, and love. The series is filled with sassy females that take no BS from anyone and the mates that love them. Click on the book cover for a link to the author’s website and access to reading the first book in the series.

Sassy Mates Series, Book 1: Scent of a Mate

Mission: Scent a Mate
Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack’s scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan’s scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha
When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan’s strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Zombies!

Leave a comment

I don’t think I’ve actually written about Mark Tufo’s books, so I will start with this one. Zombie Fallout, one of the best zombie books out there. If you haven’t read it, do so. I will include a link below.

Synopsis:

It was a flu season like no other. With fears of contracting the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known, was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country, convulsed, collapsed and died, only to be re-born. With a taste for brains, blood and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family and his friends. This is their story a band of ordinary people just trying to get by in these extra-ordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for.

Book 1 of the Zombie Fall-Out Trilogy follows our lead character in his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road always skirting on the edge of insanity. Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy’s powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie Queen – a zombie that seems by all accounts to have some sort of hold over the zombies and Mike himself? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family together with the remnants of a tattered community while not fighting each other, fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.

Children Make Mistakes…Still

Leave a comment

Since the last time I was here my family has expanded a bit. My oldest daughter (in her mid twenties) has had another child on April 10th, a girl! So I am now the grandmother of two beautiful girls. That is the good news. The bad news, they moved out. Unfortunately, upon moving out our daughter filled out a change of address form, after she was already moved out for months. The problem? She wrote down family rather than individual.

You’re probably wondering, what is wrong with that? She still has our last name. So in filling out the change of address form with family checked, our mail has also been moved. I know what she was thinking in doing this, her family, her girls. The thing is, her girls have a completely different last name than hers. We received a notice from the post office saying that all of our mail is being forwarded to where she lives now, if this was done in error then to contact them. So I did, the next day. I couldn’t do anything as far as having it cancelled since my daughter is the one who filled it out. However, I did place a notice in my mailbox as well as going to my local post office.

Our local post office has been absolutely wonderful. We have been getting mail that had not been forwarded prior to receiving the notice. However, anything that did, is going to my daughter’s address. That includes all the bills. Take a breath with me. I contacted my daughter and told her what is happening with what she did. Of course she apologized and said she would get it reversed. I was hoping it would happen shortly after speaking with her. It has been two months and she has finally gotten it reversed. Now we are waiting for oour mail to come back to us. I know breath. I’m so thankful that we have the people working at our post office that we do. We had ordered stuff online, and they have been great in getting them to us. Especially since they are Christmas gifts. Unfortunately our bills are still not getting here.

She is supposed to be mailing us our mail, redundant, yes. We live about an hour away from each other, but she has no vehicle. Since she is the one who made the mistake it is her that has to fix it. I know it sounds crude, but that is the way it is.Children must learn from their mistakes even if the parents are the ones to suffer for it as well.

That’s it for now. Until Next Time!

Back Again

Leave a comment

I am back, yet again. Don’t ask me why it takes me so long to get into writing mode, but it does. Hopefully you were able to track what I am reading thru goodreads.com. I have been keeping up on that one just to keep track of what I’m reading as well.

So much has happened in the past year. I will have to start a new series of postings! I am going to keep this short and sweet for now, so until next time!

Have a great day!

Melissa Haag,” Judgement of the Six” series

Leave a comment

Book 1: Hope(less)

Our world is being judged and we are unaware.

In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks filling her mind, representing the people around her confirm it.

Clueless regarding the reason behind her sight and her place in the world, Gabby struggles to find an explanation. A chance encounter leads to her  closer to answers she’s struggled to find, and into a hidden society where fur is optional. An introduction sends her running back home without the answers she wants – and not quite alone.

Gabby tries to ignore Clay, the werewolf delusional enough to follow her home thinking he has a chance with her, while continuing to search for answers on her own. Her problems compound when other werewolves, ones with abnormal sparks, start stalking her. Instead of gaining answers, her list of questions are growing. When she finds the answers, her will never be the same.

**I absolutely loved this book. I really had a hard time putting it down. I realized it was 2:30 in the morning and had to force myself to sleep. Really good story, great characters, and I love the humor in it as well. Well written. I liked it so much I bought the second shortly after finishing this one.**

Book 2: (Mis)fortune

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one can protect her – unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part wants to keep her safe. The second book of “Judgement of the Six” series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

**Loved this one too! Definitely a hard series to put down. The characters are great. I especially love Jim, his mischievousness knows no bounds. I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the series. I can’t wait to find out who it’s going to be about and how everyone will tie in. Definitely a new favorite on my list.**

I have more recommendations on the way. I’ve been reading nonstop, however the problem with that is my recommendations are not completely up to date to what I’m reading. I will try to get the rest of the books in. Starting Thursday, because Wednesdays are my game days. Woot!!

Until next time!

Weight Loss Again?!

Leave a comment

I wanted to talk a bit about weight loss.  Every year I go out and try a new diet. I lose weight, gain it back, and lose it again. It’s a never-ending cycle. I have finally something worth while. I decided to take a 6 week class that was provided for free by my library called “Lose Weight and Keep It Off”. It is done online so it makes it a lot easier for me. The teacher gives a lot of good advice.

This time around I’m not actually dieting, just more watching what I eat. More veggies, without giving up all the other stuff that I like. Just doing it all in portions and not overeating. Also, you learn more about yourself and your eating habits, different ways to deal with stress, creating exercise and food goals that you can live with, and how sleep could be effecting your cravings.

Since I’ve been taking the class I have lost 5 pounds and I am into week 5. I have about 36 pounds to go before I reach my main weight goal. Heck 10 more pounds and I’m happy! I think the extra weight is causing me some major back problems. I believe that is the cause of things, though I could be wrong. Maybe my back is just mad at me for the prior abuse of labor in my youth. Who knows! The weight loss can only benefit and make me healthier. That is the major goal, to be healthy and be able to keep with my daughter.

Check out http://www.ed2go.com/ or your library and see if they have anything like that available. They also have a bunch of different courses you can take for self-improvement or just for fun! I stick mainly with the courses that are free to me (I’m pretty broke) but they have other classes that you pay for if that is what you really wanted to do.

So go out there, learn something new, if you want (not holding a gun to your head) and have fun!

Until next time!! Happy reading and live healthy!
