Secrets and lies have become deadly.

While investigating the murder of her parents, Roxanne Bowman encounters more than she ever thought she would. The secrets that both of her parents kept knock her off kilter. Finding an intruder in their home afterwards changes her life forever.

GHOST operative, Hawk Delany is back in the swing of things after being shot while working a case.

Writing has been a desire my whole life. Once I found the courage to write, life changed for me in the most profound way. Bringing stories to readers that I'd enjoy reading and creating characters that are flawed, but lovable is such a joy.

When not writing, I'm with my family doing something fun. My husband, Gene, and I are bikers and enjoy riding to new locations, meeting new people and generally enjoying this fabulous country we live in.

I come from a family of veterans. My grandfather, father, brother, two sons, and one daughter-in-law are all veterans. Needless to say, I am proud to be an American and proud of the service my amazing family has given.


Natural Vitamin E Oil from Mary Tylor

I use vitamin E oil a lot for my dry skin. I have used several different brands over the years too. After receiving and using this Vitamin E oil from Mary Tylor I am happy to say it measures up to a lot of the more expensive brands I have used.

This bottle of Vitamin E oil has 45,000 IU. It is the strongest type available. This vitamin E oil is mixed with Jojoba and rosehip oils. All 3 oils are organic and great for your skin.  This can be used alone or as a carrier oil for homemade cosmetics and skin care products. This is also great for your hair too. And best of all you only need a few drops, so this large bottle will last a very long time.

The oils comes in a 4 ounce amber glass bottle. It has a screw on lid but also comes with a screw on glass eyedropper. This is a pure oil not synthetic as you will be able to tell by the orangish color.

I either received this product for free or at a discounted price and have chosen to leave this honest and unbiased review.

travel inspira 35L Lightweight Foldable Backpack

This is a really nice backpack. The top picture is of the back pack folded down for storage, while the bottom picture is to show the backpack when unfolded. The full backpack folds up then your slide it into the inside out large front pocket. It then zips shut to make the compact version. This great for traveling. You can put it into a suitcase to take with you for when you get to your destination.

The backpack is made of a lightweight but yet pretty sturdy. I would not pack it with heavy books or over stuff with clothing. It is waterproof so great for camping. This bag is sized for using as a carry on on airplanes.

My husband and I go on a lot of day trips and I am one of those people that likes to pick up souvenirs. My husband usually carries a tote bag for me but I will be upgrading him to this back pack. There will be plenty of room.

The back pack has 2 large sized zippered pockets. These posckets are large enough for laptops, notebooks, and tablets. There are smaller pockets as well for storing stationary supplies, make up, hygiene supplies and more.

Halloween Spooktacular tour for Enemy Games by Marcella Burnard

Deviled Potato Bites

This is a plant-based, vegan,
gluten free recipe. It doesn't look creepy, which bums me out, but with
'deviled' in the name, you can't go wrong. And these things are devilishly

You'll need to buy a pack of baby
yellow potatoes. Rinse them, cover them with water in a pot and boil just until
they're fork tender. I start checking at about 8 minutes. Once a fork pierces
the largest potato easily, remove the potatoes from the heat and drain. Set

Now for the 'deviled' part


1-2 Medjool dates - Pitted
1/4 Cup boiling water
Place your dates in a blender.
Pour the boiling water over them to soften them for a few minutes.

1 Can garbanzo beans drained and
1 TBSP spicy brown mustard
1-2 tsp dijon
2 cloves garlic
2 TBSP lemon juice

Place these ingredients in the
bowl of a food processor with the blade fitted inside it.

Blend your dates in the soak
water. Start on low, then turn up the speed and let them get pulverized. If
your dates were really hard, you'll be happier if you soak them longer, even
overnight. I find the organic medjool dates in the produce section of my local
grocery store are moist and soft enough to use with maybe five minutes of soaking.
You'll have to experiment there. Once the dates and water have been blended,
add them to the other humus ingredients in the food processor. Rinse down your
blender with a little more hot water - you might add it to your humus as you
process it.

Turn on the food processor and
process your mixture down to a texture that pleases you, adding a bit of the
rinse water from your blender as needed to achieve the consistency you prefer.
Taste for spices and adjust to your taste. The dates add sweetness to the mix
and most closely mimics the flavors of Deviled Eggs from my childhood. You may
prefer to omit them. If you do, use plain water or veggie broth to thin your
humus as it blends.

Cut your reserved potatoes in
half. Use a melon baller and scoop a divot out of the inside of the potatoes.
Spoon the humus into the cavities. Dust with smoke paprika and chives. Then
watch yourself eat them all in one sitting!

Book Description:

While combating a plague,
scientist Jayleia Durante becomes a pawn in a greater game. With her father
missing and intergalactic mercenaries on her trail, her decision to cooperate
with Major Damen Sindrivik may prove advantageous...if she can control her
attraction to the officer who abducted her.Some secrets aren't worth
keeping...Damen, a spy from a rival government, will use anything, including
his predatory instincts, to achieve his mission...locating Jayleia's father.

She reacts to Damen's charm and
seductive power, so why does he question her motivation?Conflicted loyalties
and enemies abound...Traitors and the alien enemies threaten to destroy the
galaxy. Jayleia must choose.

Betray her father, risk her
friends, and lose Damen, or prevent an Interstellar war?


Damen, fully
dressed, left the tiny chamber by stalking straight up to her and glaring at
her, a knot in his jaw. If she backed up, she’d collide with the bed. His bed.
Muscles low in her abdomen clenched tight. Confusion rocked her. What had
happened to make her react to the man? She sidled away, circling toward the
open shower door. He leaned in, his gaze holding hers. Rational thought
evaporated. She stumbled into the sanitizer. “What aren’t you telling me?” he
murmured, his gaze fixed on her mouth. The air left her lungs and she struggled
to recall that she had no business hoping Damen would make good his implied
threat to kiss her. Pressing her lips tight, trapped by his gaze, she nudged
the button to activate the system. The door shut in his face.
