He sat down muttering, "No go home. No want to go home. No feel like going home."
This weeks SS post is going to be postponed. Today is my papaws birthday party. His actual birthday was the 4th but we are having the party today. There is suppose to be close to 200 people there! I made sand. It's like dirt cake only with vanilla wafers. I can't wait to eat it.
I hope everyone had a great 4th week! I know me and my family have!
Book 1 in the Animal Urges series.
City girl Abby Clumm wouldn't normally travel to remote cabins in Alaska alone. But expecting her Survivor-type friend to be arriving shortly, she reluctantly makes the journey to their rented cottage solo. She'll settle in for a quiet night before a toasty fire with a pot of coffee and a good book.Unfortunately, things don't go as she plans—no real surprise, they never do—and she finds herself alone in the boonies, a shotgun she doesn't know how to use and a failing wooden door the only things standing between her and a very hungry animal outside.
Research scientist Tarik Evert has no idea what's wrong. He's suddenly driven by a need so urgent it's painful. The scent of a woman nearby beckons him, sends him staggering outside into the cold. And then somehow he's at her door, naked and shivering, not sure what just happened…or what is about to happen if she lets him inside. He only knows one thing—the hunger that brought him to her in the first place.And that's just the beginning of their troubles…
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.
Fierce Dawn by Amber Scott...X-Men action meets True Blood Heat! 2011 Best in Paranormal Romance (Angels & Demons) nominee!Heartsblood by Carolyn McCray...Blood magic is all the more dangerous with two hearts on the line.Soul Search by Amber Scott...The wolf inside him is fighting for control in a race to find a missing boy.Fated by Carolyn McCray...Bound for eternity, torn apart by history.
Blood and death aside, love is all that should matter... Tragedy brought her to a new place. Fate put her in the arms of a vampire. The truth could destroy her. Hailed as the most inspiring read since Twilight. Take a journey of tears and heartache as Ara finds that love is a reason to live. Will the vampire be her knight, or will the truth about him finish what fate started?
Love was only the beginning of her nightmares.
When Ara discovered the existence of vampires, she was given the choice between a life as one of them, or a life without her true love.
But fate has a funny way of making choices for you.
After breaking the heart of the boy she loves with a truth he cannot bear, Ara will find herself in the arms of a predator who will steal her innocence and force the hand of fate.
Will David Knight become her rescuer once again, or will he be too late?
Death never leaves us. Once it's touched our souls, it hungers for our return--waiting for us to fall. And if it finds Ara again, she will have no way to escape.
Moving on from David was hard, forgetting the abduction and torture was almost impossible, but nothing as devastating as the thought that now, because of her, David might face the horrific punishments of the Set.
No one knows where David went after he lost Ara, but she can only hope he's the one leaving subtle clues for her to discover, and it makes her desperate to find him--desperate enough that she would risk her life, hanging out with an informant who means to kill her. What truths she is told about David's dark past, though, will threaten to change her heart and destroy the way Ara perceives everything. She must ask herself if it's right to love one monster, then hate the one who tried to destroy her.
In all her searching, the promise of immortality will finally be renewed, but sold at a price Ara's not sure she's willing to pay.
Is love enough to make her submit to this new role, or will it fail her once again and leave her reaching back for the grasp of death?
