Cover Release of BOUND

 (The Cities Below, #2)
 Jen Colly

Published by: Lyrical Press
Publication date: January 31st 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Romance

The streets are a battleground for humans, vampires, and demons alike—where survival is a skill, love is a weapon, and the most dangerous act is to care for another . . .
Keir is an assassin devoted to Lady Arianne, the last of her royal bloodline. He is sworn to protect her, and that means eliminating any threat to her life. But while on a mission, he is set upon by a pack of demons, barely escaping with his life.
Cleopatra lives by a set of rules so rigid she no longer knows her true self. But her kind and loving nature resurfaces when she finds a man, bloodied and dying. Moved to help him, she risks her future and her life to save a stranger far below her aristocratic station.
Their attraction to each other is as powerful as it is forbidden. But even as their love grows, Keir keeps his true identity a secret—and this lie is not the only threat to their love . . . or their lives.

Project Complete

When we moved into our current home, there was an old rusty swing frame in the back which I was all for pitching, but the HH wanted to restore it and add a swing. Let me just say we should have looked into the cost of a new one versus  restoration.  Grin.
As of last week: project complete.
Okay, guys, how long do home projects take you?

Movies We've Seen

The Equalizer

I love Denzel Washington and I liked the premise of this movie, man comes out of retirement to right wrongs.  I felt it had a lot of potential, but for me the storyline got lost in the violence. 

London Has Fallen
My main complaint: I got tired of the F Bomb being dropped over and over again. 

This YA movie is from the Divergent Series.  I enjoyed it.  The HH had trouble following the plot.

Two Left. Three Came Back.

Greetings, blogster buds.  We're back!  We drove to central Illinois for my nephew's wedding, with a stopover in southern Illinois to see my aunt and uncle.
Our travel encounters usually involve weather, construction and traffic.  This trip our travel challenge was a little different.
The day we were to leave my aunt and uncle's, I heard a meowing in the woods.  A man cutting the grass said he thought it was a catbird.  I'm thinking, please be a catbird. But just in case I called.  Across the road and out of the woods streaked a kitten, just as a car came down the road. My heart stopped.  The kitten raced across the lanes, luckily before the car reached him and landed at my feet.
We tried rescue--filled up.  And the neighbors--it wasn't theirs.
Like so many other kittens, apparently he'd been  dumped.
If there had been another option, we would have taken it, but there was no way he could have survived in the woods.  So we packed him up and he went to central Illinois with us then back to NC.  Let me just say here, that the HH has always been great about rescues and this was no exception.  He said the minute he saw that kitten streaking across the road he knew he'd be coming with us to NC.
My main concern traveling with him was would we be able to get a hotel room that would take a kitten.  My sister had made us reservations at Days Inn. When we inquired about their pet policy, we found out that all they required was a ten dollar pet deposit. Whew. I was extremely relieved as I had visions of sleeping in the car with the kitten.
I'm going to put him on petfinder.com but we both think we've got another cat.
Okay, it's your turn.  What's been going on while I've been gone?
