The Prophecy - "Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse."

Erica Sterling owns her curves, and inspires passion in every person she meets. It’s the curse of having the Greek muse, Erato, lurking in her soul. After a hot night with a firefighter, she struggles to keep her distance from him. The gods have other plans, but Erica has crossed the line between passion and obsession once before, and she’s never going back. Not even for her Guardian.

No one understands fire and heat like firefighter, Reed McIntosh. After being burned by a bad marriage, he’s sworn off love. But he’s never been with anyone like Erica, and after meeting her, a dormant ability is awakened inside of him, along with the desire to keep her safe.

When a stalker’s threats turn up the heat, Reed will put his life ---and his heart--- on the line. But when the ashes settle, will love be too late?



Linda's Thoughts:
“Are all firefighters as hot as you?”

New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti brings us the second book in a thrilling romantic suspense series.

A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars-even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

With twists and turns that will take your breath away, LETHAL LIES is sexy, action-packed suspense at its very best from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti. 




Kimberly’s Thoughts:
Heath and his blood brothers are still on the run and fighting their past. However, when he meets Anya, the danger of entanglements might be too hard for him to fight.
Anya decides that fighting back against the serial killer playing with her is better than watching others die around her. When she announces on live tv that her and Heath are engaged, she knows the danger she is putting herself in, but she never could have imagined the greatest danger was to her heart.

Brynley Blake's Bucket List:


I’ve always been a little obsessed with bucket lists, so it’s probably not surprising that one finally made it into one of my books (or three actually, as the bucket list plays an integral part in the entire Phoenix Rising series).  Heartbroken over her older brother’s death and the whispered suspicions that he was illegally dealing arms before his death, McKenzie Prescott (the heroine of Rogue) has one mission—to finish her daring Navy SEAL brother’s bucket list, even though she’s scared of heights and prone to anxiety attacks.  However, the bucket list turns out to be a treasure map of sorts to the guns Liam sold to the Mexican drug cartel before he died—but never delivered.  Completing the list, and finding the guns, turns out to be a matter of life and death as Liam’s sister

#Giveaway of Oola for Women: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World for Women by Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl

After the release of their first book, the OolaLifestyle has become a sensation with readers who are trying to seek balance in an unbalanced world. Dave and Troy have built their entire phenomenon through social media, and now have more than 700,000 followers. The idea for creating a movement solely for women came when they realized their social following was primarily female. OOLA FOR WOMEN consists of more than 40 stories by inspiring, everyday women living the OolaLife. You can check out Dave and Troy in action here as they travel on their 16 city book tour across the country.



33566189Oola for Women: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World--7 Key Areas of Life to Have Less Stress, More Purpose, and Reveal the Greatness Within You
by Dave Braun, Troy Amdahl
Kindle Edition, 264 pages

If you haven't heard of the 'Oola phenomenon' yet, it's time to catch up. First, though, you need to understand what it is: Oola is that state of awesomeness you experience when your life is balanced and growing in all the key areas of health and well-being. It can be a noun or a verb. It can be a destination or a feeling. It can be as complex as a life growing and balanced in fitness, finance, family, field, faith, friends, and fun (the 7 F's of Oola), or as simple as a sunset, a quiet book on the beach, or a special moment with a child. It is that place we all shoot for in life. That feeling we experience and that we celebrate in our successes along the way. In short, Oola is cool.

Since the first copy of the original book, Oola: Find balance in an Unbalanced World, rolled off the presses a few years ago, the Oola Lifestyle has become a literal phenomenon—a  dynamic movement. OolaPalooza live events have been routinely sold out since the day they were started, and the Oola message has been taken to countless cities across America and to every major city in the world via 700,000+ Oola fans on social media. In their 1970s VW Surf bus, authors Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun have taken their OolaDream tour on the road, from coast-to-coast, collecting dreams and goals for a balanced life from people who adorn their vehicle with colorful Oola stickers.

The OolaGuys know that women are the ultimate multitaskers. While a circus performer might spin seven plates in a single show, women spin seven plates—figuratively—every day. They not only juggle kids, family, and home life, they also juggle work responsibilities, customers and clients, make constant business decisions, handle professional events and so many related activities that it's truly mind-boggling how much a woman can pack into a 24-hour day. In this Oola especially for them, the book shows, through the experiences of 54 inspiring women, how to overcome unexpected hardships, and transform the juggling act of everyday life into a dream lifestyle of simplicity, tranquility, abundance, and opportunity. That's what 'living Oola' means—and it's not only an attainable goal, but a well-deserved reward.
