SereneLife PSLMSQR10 - Bug Zapper Electric Light

 I live in Florida where the species of bugs out number humans probably 100 to one. We have ugly bugs, cute bugs, strange bugs, big bugs, little bugs, get the picture. Anyway lots of bugs and I would say 99.9% of them BITE. A bug zapper is a must have not just during the summer either, these bugs are out year round. So I hung this one about mid way of my back yard on a large shepherd's hook. My husband and I were setting on the back porch and let me tell you, this light got annoying. All the popping, cracking and zapping. I did not get bit by anything, but those bugs got bit by this zapper.
  The zapper is about 11 inches tall and about 6 inches across. It is kind of oval shaped. It has a sturdy ring at the top for hanging. It does come with a power cord. I am  not sure how waterproof the power cord is so I the end in a plastic bag and wrapped a rubber band tightly around it. This is a great light and it really works great.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Case, Protective Bumper Case 5-Pack by Boxeroo for Samsung S6

I love having a case to protect my phone. I really love having a bunch of cases to switch out with my outfit, mood, or whatever. This set of 5 bumper cases, is great. The colors re very vibrant and I can change out my phone case 5 times a week. These bumper cases are very soft and flexible but yet strong and durable. They fit snugly. All of the buttons and openings are in the correct spots. These really add no weight to my phone. The rubbery feel of the cases give me a better grip on my phone too. I really love the pink and the purples ones. The green, blue, and bacl ones are nice also.

Yet when she sees the sexy athlete coaching the local kids in a makeshift sandlot, her heart and her body stop listening to her head.

A surprise invitation to Trovare Castle throws them together once more. A mysterious prince and a fatherless boy complicate their already tense reunion, but they soon discover that the greatest dare is the one that leads to true love.

Audiobook Review of They Never Die Quietly by D. M. Annechino

This is a great book. Once I started it I couldn't stop. The book is about a Religious fanatic Simon, who kills women in front of their small children. He feels that killing these women purifies him. His mother who has been dead for years keeps telling him he is doing God's work.
Sami Rizzo is assigned to head the task force on the case of the murders. She wants to end the terror so much so that a handsome face clouds her judgment at first, before she becomes suspicious of the man who she is attracted to.
She ends up in the middle of the insanity herself. 

This book is very fast paced. From page one this book drug me in and didn't turn me loose until the last period in the book. There is just enough description of surroundings to keep you in the know but not so much as to bore you. At least not for me. D.M. Annechino has done a great job with this book. I can't wait to get started on the next book. 

I listened to the Audio Book which is read by Christina Traister. She does a wonderful job. you can feel the characters emotions in her voice. She as well as the book has a way of keeping you involved. I really like when listening to a audio book and the narrator makes it sound more like a conversation then just a fat book. You know when the character is smiling because you can hear it, I will be looking for more books read by her.

I was given an audiobook by the Author in exchange for my honest review.

Book Description:

Desiderus has served Ba'al faithfully for nearly one hundred years. When Haven Rowe put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, her fierce nature stirred emotions he hadn't felt since before Ba'al claimed him. With his sight set on consuming her body and soul, he'll use every deceptive idea at his disposal to make sure she belongs to him.

When Haven walked in on a demon stealing her brother, Jeremy, her entire world unraveled. Born to a family of magic users, yet unable to use magic of her own, Haven will do anything to get her brother back from the depths of hell, even if it means she has to bargain her soul.

With the help of a witch, Haven seeks out loopholes to the soul bargains that have been made. She either finds a way out for her and Jeremy, or they both might be lost forever. What she doesn't count on is the betrayal of her own body and the insurmountable attraction she has for the demon she's trying to escape.

Surprised by the female's actions, Desiderus watched her run for a moment before his mind registered her actions. Her obsidian hair flew behind her with a strange bag slung over her small shoulders. In a way, he should have known Haven would bolt. Experience all but told him that. Many had run and failed. Desiderus shook his head and a grin spread across his lips. She wouldn't get far and not just because she was naked. He had a pretty good idea that Haven didn't worry about her loss of clothes as much as she worried about what he might do to her. He would have loved nothing more than to chase after her...but she needed to be taught a lesson, to understand what it meant for him to have her name, for him to be in control.
After quickly making Ba'al's sign in the air in front of him, a toad with a circle, magic flickered into the sigil like sparking a match. The sign brightened to an orange color. Desiderus had been a demon so long it took seconds to create. Under his breath, he let her name roll off his tongue in one easy motion, "Haven Rowe."
The color of the sigil sprinkled away on a breeze and black smoke swirled. Haven's image slowly began to appear, little by little, tantalizing, as if she somehow knew he wanted her body, far more than he had any other mortal female. Her legs came first, the lazy curve of her hips, he groaned with the swell of her heaving breasts, and finally her face construed in a perfect scowl piercing him with those damn blue eyes.
"Running will do you no good, Haven." Inside lust coiled around his core, urging him to do anything but stand there looking staring. Her skin shimmering with sweat, making his tongue slip out to lick his lips. He swallowed a groan at the thought of tasting her tanned flesh. Lost in his erotic notions he didn't see her foot until it was too late and a sharp jolt of lightning like pain raced up from between his legs, shooting over his spine and slamming into the base of his brain. Colors formed in his eyes and he blinked it away as his stomach churned. His knees weakened, but he kept himself standing somehow, adrenaline replacing the pain as anger mounted inside him like a lion.
"But that does demon." Haven turned to run for the second time and despite the throbbing radiating from his balls, Desiderus reached out for her, latching fingers around an ankle that had come up from the ground and Haven fell front first into the dirt with Desiderus falling on top of her.

Book Blast for May Your Heart be Light by Sandy Lender

May Your Heart be Light
by Sandy Lender


GENRE: Paranormal Romance



After graduation from business school and escape from engagement, Jennifer DeVision wants peace on earth for the holidays. Joining friends at the Rose Chateau seems like the calm answer to a question she hasn’t asked.

When the mysterious owner of the bed-and-breakfast begins to bring out more than the Christmas spirit in Jennifer, the forces that have been holding her in check get angry. Caleb Odan and his enabling staff of merrymakers might turn this vacation back into the romantic and magical time it’s supposed to be, if they can figure out what they’ve invited into their midst before it threatens both Jennifer and Caleb’s existence.


From Chapter 1

“What’s all that ruckus out there?” Caleb asked his driver.

Roger pulled a stocking cap from his head, mussing his curvy brown hair as if he’d touched a plasma globe, and dropped into the high-backed barrister chair opposite Caleb. He sank into the dark, velvet cushion as if he’d been running for days and said, “The nine ladies dancing have arrived.”

Caleb’s grimace answered him. “It sounds like a flock of cackling hens.”

“Cackling hens? Those were French hens. Three I think.”


“Are you with me, Caleb? Three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear—”

“Are you singing?” Caleb interrupted him.

Roger chuckled. “Perhaps not very well. The last of the guests have arrived for their holiday package. Christmas has officially begun, my friend. You might as well get into the spirit rather than sitting in here with a look like you’re about to stab someone with a bayonet. Do you want to welcome the last four guests to the chateau or go hide in your happy solitude?”

Caleb made a grumbling sound under his breath as if selecting which topic to respond to. He looked to the fireplace where orange and bright shards of branches gave way to the black and gray outlines of wood that had finished burning. The fire had died; the embers merely had to admit it now to make it so. Caleb stared at the patches of orange, considering the effort necessary to break the tender wood to release the flames still hidden inside. It was easier to allow the embers to slowly give up, to slowly extinguish all hope for rekindling.
