Part human, part wolf, he walks on the Wylde side.

Wylde

Xi Force Book 3

By S. C. Mitchell

Forced to undergo experimental procedures that grafted wolf DNA into his own and then given super healing powers, Jonathan Wylde wants nothing to do with civilization, preferring instead to run with his wolf pack. A reluctant member of the Xi Force super team, he keeps to himself unless is talents are needed.
Dove Locklear returns home after spending exciting and adventurous weeks with the Xi Force super team, and reconnecting with her childhood friend, John Wylde. But danger lurks in her father’s genetics lab. An agent of Red Guard, with nefarious plans, whisks her away at gunpoint to a secret Russian facility.
When his closest friend, Dove Locklear, is kidnapped, Wylde needs to learn to work with his team if he wants to save her. He knows where they took her, and the danger she’s in. He’ll do whatever it takes to rescue to her, even if that means confronting the man who created him—his father.

Cover Reveal – Phaze

She could walk through walls, but she couldn’t escape love.

I just received word that the second Xi Force book, Phaze, will be released early next month, so I thought today would be a great time for a cover reveal.

PHAZE

Xi Force #2

When Kayla Armstrong is attacked in her lab, she falls into a chemical stew. Now she’s walking through walls and falling through floors.

As the leader of Xi Force, Joel Weisberg is always looking for new superheroes for his team. What he wasn’t looking for was sexy Kayla Armstrong falling through the ceiling of his apartment right into his bed. Still he isn’t complaining when the event finds him a new Xi Force member and a new love. Now she just needs some training and some time.

But when an old enemy comes back with new powers and captures Joel, it’s up to Kayla to lead the Xi Force against her. But can they rescue Joel before he’s murdered . . . again?

I am so stoked. I think Soul Mate Publishing did such a fantastic job on the cover.

Forever Brides (3 Book Series) by  A.S. Fenichel

Whether you’re joining me from A.S. Fenichel’s blog post or starting your blog hop here, welcome.

Today’s topic comes from the delightful Jenna Da Sie – Would You Rather Cooking Edition: 1) Cut out butter forever or sugar? 2) Have a normal size oven that heats inconsistently or have a toaster oven that bakes everything perfectly? 3) Make something beautiful that tastes terrible or make something ugly that tastes great? 4) Forget to preheat oven or forget to bring ingredients to room temperature. 5) Have to measure ingredients by eye or have to guess how long things have been in the oven? 6) Win a national baking award or create a recipe that gets handed down for generations? 7) Mix everything by hand or wash all dishes by hand.

Well, as the bulk of my cooking experience is centered around the creation of cookies, consider this my Would You Rather Cookie Edition.

1. Would you rather cut out butter forever or sugar?

Okay, cookies are basically butter and sugar, so we’re talking about half the ingredients. Also, being from Wisconsin, I almost have to side with real butter. But a cookie without sugar? Ugh. Looking at all the alternatives, I would probably be making my cookies with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (even though I really can.)

2) Would you rather have a normal size oven that heats inconsistently or have a toaster oven that bakes everything perfectly?

Well, I’d have to bake them in fours or sixes instead of a dozen to the pan, taking twice as long, but I usually try to sample one from each batch because . . . warm, fresh from the over cookies are the best. So 2 to 3 times the samples = win. And unevenly baked cookies can be gross.

3) Would you rather make something beautiful that tastes terrible or make something ugly that tastes great?

Even the ugliest cookie is beautiful. No contest.

4) Would you rather forget to preheat oven or forget to bring ingredients to room temperature.

No, no, no, no, no. Cookies have to go into a hot oven. the dough can come out of the freezer, but that oven has to be hot.

5) Would you rather have to measure ingredients by eye or have to guess how long things have been in the oven?

Tough one. I use Siri on my phone to time cookies to perfection, and I am sure my eye is a lousy measuring device, but I’d rather have cookies with too much sugar than have them come out burned.

6) Would you rather win a national baking award or create a recipe that gets handed down for generations?

Cookies are a personal experience for me, so I really have no interest in awards or creating recipes for others. What I’d really rather have is a recipe that is so good it has been handed down for generations.

7) Would you rather mix everything by hand or wash all dishes by hand. 

Here is where my age will show. I have stirred up batches of cookie dough by hand, and by the end my hands hurt. On the other hand, nothing makes my hands feel better than soaking them in warm water.  (Lots of hands in this paragraph. My editor would kill me.) Anyway, bring on the dishes.

So, there are my answers. To find out what’s cooking in Leslie Hachtel’s kitchen, check out her blog post as the Romance Writer’s Weekly blog hop continues at: https://lesliehachtelwriter.wordpress.com/

The Defiant Bride by [Hachtel, Leslie]

 

Whether you’re joining me from Leslie Hachtel’s blog  or starting your blog hop here, welcome.

Leslie is also giving us today’s topic: Let’s talk about your New Years’ Resolutions.

I’m not the kind that makes really hard New Years resolutions. I’ve tried and usually failed, instead I try to set some goals to strive toward. My goals for this year include:

  1. Re-branding. Look for a new look to my website, social media, and Amazon pages.
  2. Advertise and grow my readership. I’m going to put a little more effort into getting the word out: “Hey, I write stuff.”
  3. Lose weight. (On the list every year. usually a fail, because I like to eat and hate to exercise.)
  4. Write, write, write, or, yeah, and write.

Anyway, goals are set, full steam ahead.

Into the Darkness by [Devine, J.J.]

Whether you’re joining me from J. J. Devine’s blog post or starting your blog hop here, welcome.

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful J. J. – What is your favorite holiday cookie recipe?

Now I’m sure the idea behind this topic is to give you all some great cookie recipes you can bake, but I’m not much of a baker or cookie maker.

However, I do consider myself a top-notch cookie eater, and when it comes to Christmas cookies, I don’t hold back, and I pretty much love them all. (Thus the continuing New Years resolution to lose weight.)

But my all-time favorite, the one i only allow myself during the Christmas season, is the plain old Iced Sugar Cookie. (<– Okay, there’s a recipe linked. Don’t know if it’s the best, but it looks damn good to me.)

Anyway, I have these tempting me right now:

I’m thinking breakfast…
