Red As The Sun & Free Kindle Books

Before I get to rambling on and on about something completely off the subject I wanted to talk about, let me tell you why I am so excited today. I harvested my red onions yesterday and they look AMAZING! I was certain that I had planted them too late and they would never grown. Instead of the expected disappointment I was thrilled with the size of each onion. Right now I have them laying out drying up on the back patio. I have visited them a few hundred time already and took about a gazillion pictures. I went straight to YouTube and watched a few videos on how to harvest onions. I think they just might be my new favorite veggie to grow. I really like the fact that I can store them and use them over winter. Next year I will try a few yellow onions as well as the red again.

Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers–Book 1)
by Morgan Rice
4.1 Stars (1,523 Reviews)
Genre: Teen & Young Adult | Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

“If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. In RISE OF THE DRAGONS Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny.

Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is.

When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon — and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever.

15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too — and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

A nearly flawless museum robbery, a missing million-dollar necklace, a stalled police investigation. For the victim of the crime, the situation calls for desperate measures.

Penelope Fitzpatrick wasn’t born to wealth. Her grandfather fed the family by selling his small stash of gemstones smuggled from tsarist Russia when the monarchy fell. Now, Pen has done well for herself as a successful novelist. But when the final jewel in her family legacy becomes the target of a cunning band of thieves, and the priceless piece is stolen, the police have many excuses why they can’t solve the crime. Not one to accept defeat, Pen does the only thing she can do — gather a group of friends to help catch the crooks and steal back the necklace.

It becomes apparent the thief is a master con man who is likely working with an international theft ring. The chase takes the Ladies far from home and into elegant European enclaves as they attempt to face him down. Close calls and near misses — it’s never quite certain whether the women will be able to pull their own spectacular heist and see justice done.

Let Me Tell You & Free Kindle Books

Let me tell you just how I am feeling this morning (I always do) and for once I am not freaked out by a nightmare about clowns or sharks. Although I did have a nightmare last night with actor Vincent D’Onofrio trying to get me to eat at a fast-food restaurant. For some reason I really didn’t want to go and it was making me pretty upset. If this had been real life though I would have told him to point the Mcway and said Mcthank you. Don’t get me wrong. Fast-food restaurants have their place and no family vacation would last more than 1 day without them, but if I am close to home I would rather eat at home. I get the feeling Vincent D’Onofrio eats pretty well himself and wouldn’t push anyone to eat what they didn’t want to. He seems nice like that. Well now I have rambled on and on. I will tell you later what I am so excited about.

Genre: Literary Fiction | Sagas

FREE for a limited time

Coming back to his childhood home after years of absence, Ben is unprepared for the secret, which is now revealed to him: his mother, Natasha, who used to be a brilliant pianist, is losing herself to mysterious disease, which turns the way her mind works into a riddle. His father’s new wife, Anita, looks remarkably similar to her — only much younger. Feeling isolated, being apart from love, how will Ben react to these marital affairs, when it is so tempting to resort to blame and guilt? “In our family, forgiveness is something you pray for, something you yearn to receive — but so seldom do you give it to others.”

Behind his father’s back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices — his eloquent speech, her slang — are being caught by his father. What emerges in this family is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

Dealing with the challenging prospects of the marriage of opposites, this book can be read as a standalone novel as well as part of one of family sagas best sellers. Still Life with Memories is a family saga series tinged with family saga romance, fraught with marital issues, and riddled with the difficulty of connecting fathers and sons.
