Rebellion Release Day!

It’s book birthRebellionday for Rebellion! Book two in the Alien Attachments series.

“Have any interesting dreams, Red?”

“Don’t call me Red. I’m just here to find out what this means.” She lied. She knew the second she entered the room what it meant. He was the one. Her psi-mate. A cold blooded killer.

 

Ria Montori is no stranger to kicking ass. Though petite in size, she packs a punch as a former Sandarian military officer who currently serves the Cavacent clan on a strange planet called Earth. She has no interest in seeking her one psi-mate who could bring her unparalleled pleasure through a sensual, otherworldly bond. She has no time for a lover of any kind. So why is she lured in by the beguiling Curzan native who just killed a government official?

Ty Sordina hates Ria’s kind. The Sandarians murdered his parents while he watched and enslaved his people. Driven by revenge, he vows that nothing and no one will stand in his way. Especially not a feisty redhead who challenges his every instinct and calls to his psi like no other.

But war is coming. And the two must succumb to temptation for only the power of their completed bond can defeat and destroy the enemy. But only if they surrender…

Available at Amazon and all major retailers.

Sabine Reads from Alien Attachments.

Greetings Earthlings!

It’s my turn to read today. I’m cheating. It’s not the ‘when the MCs meet’ scene but a bit from when Dani discovers aliens are real.

And by the way, am I the only one who can’t stand the way they look doing this crap? I mean, I can’t stay still. My head bobs and weaves like a drunken duck. Oh well. Here I am in all my spasmodic glory. Enjoy. Laugh. Make fun. I’ll be right there with you!

Diamond Legacy by Monica McCabe

Diamond Legacy I just found Ms. McCabe and throughly enjoyed her book. The characters drew me in and held me till the end. I just had to love our heroin. She’s basically a dentist for endangered species and she’s got guts. And passion. She loves what she does and it shows.

Our hero is flawed, as all good heros should be and the two are a fantastic mix.

I loved the setting and the glimpses into the lives of African tribal society and the workings of a wildlife preserve.

Blood diamonds are real and the book did a nice job of peeling back the curtain and giving a glimpse of the smuggling trade.

You can check it out here. Amazon.

Blurb:

Africa-where diamonds are the currency of the weapons trade, and trust is the only option between two strangers…

 
Miranda Parrish is a world-renowned veterinarian specialist with expertise in endangered species. She’s fearless and will go anywhere an animal is in need. But when she journeys to Katanga, an animal sanctuary in the heart of Botswana, she lands in the middle of a blood diamond smuggling operation. And there’s only one man who can help her.
Special agent, Matt Bennett’s parents were murdered by a ruthless arms dealer when he was fourteen. He’s devoted his life to avenging their deaths and ending the cycle of violence threatening southern Africa. Undercover at Katanga, he clashes with Miranda. He’s never met a woman so stubborn, who’ll let nothing stand in the way of what she believes in. But he’ll let no one come between him and the vengeance he craves.
Matt and Miranda must learn to work together if they want to save Katanga, and both of their lives, before it’s too late.

The Psy-Changeling Series by Nalini Singh

NS1 Where do I begin with these books? First, I love this woman’s voice. She manages to give just enough detail that you think you know everything about the world, but if you go back and look, she’s actually let you fill in the blanks. Brilliant.

Hot and sexy shifters. Check.

Hierarchical clans and alpha males. Check.

An entire people with Psy conditioned to repress all emotion (‘cuz we all know how well that’s going to work out.) Check.

A psy net that ties the psy together. Check that.

Bonding psy-mates. Check, check, check!

I must confess to binging on these books all summer long. I’m not a fast reader and we traveled like crazy people this year so I’ve only read the first three, but I loved everyone. I also got to take a selfie with Nalini at RWA and she signed Slave to Sensation! I was the first person in that line (okay, I kind of ambushed her, but she was going to sign books anyway. Really.)  I’d post my selfie, but I kid you not when I say I look like a crazed fan. I don’t want to scare her away. Her talk was delightful (loved what she did with that train thing. *snicker*) and you can just tell that woman has a big heart.

NS3 Nalini isn’t afraid to go deep and dark. With each new set of main characters she delves into the phych and pulls you in with her.

There’s another reason I think I love these book. Psy mates bonding. I love that trope. I write that trope in my Alien Attachments series. Ok, so I spell it psi but the undeniable bond and telepathic communication are there. As is telekinesis and other powers that go along with it.

Psy, psi, sigh. It’s all good right? If you love it like I do, dig in!

Oh, and she has another series going. Hot dudes with wings. I’ve got one of those coming as well but my dudes aren’t’ angles and there are no feathers. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll rethink the feather thing. I’ll save the other series for another post.

I highly recommend these kickass books. And Nalini, I hope you’ll let me buy you a drink someday and toast to your success. Keep on writing, chick!

Tips From The Chicks – Sabine Kicking it with Resin.

Hello everyone!

I’m up today with our Tips from the Chicks series. I have to confess, when it comes to helpful tips around the home I’m about as helpful as a jackhammer in swim lessons. I do, however, love to create things. I once turned my child’s bathroom into an underwater world with seaweed that reached the ceiling and dozens of different aquatic life. Stencils were the key. It was amazing and I never once took a picture of it.

*face palm* Learn from my mistake and make sure you take of picture of something you’re proud of. Oh, look. I just gave you a KickAss tip! Yay me!

Moving along. I’m sharing a new hobby today using found items on our local beaches and resin. Okay, so the camel, little people and tiny divers weren’t found on the beach. You’ll just have to cut me some artistic slack on that one.

Hope you enjoy the vid.

Here’s some still shots in case my amazing vlogging skills left you woozy.

Kids – got to love the little blighters.

Because it’s summer and those with kids have them underfoot more right now, I thought this was appropriate. Plus I have a friend who just gave birth. Welcome to parenthood, Nichol!

 

We’ll start with a funny video about those with kids and those without.

 

If your darling little one is prone to tantrums I suggest learning to speak their language. Or at least mimic it and make a funny video.

These dads nailed it.

And once  you’ve made it through the all of that? You get a brand new TEEN!

 

Happy Friday!
