Stolen Chances by Elisabeth Naughton

Nine years ago, Archaeologist Maren Hudson lost everything when a member of her team was killed during a routine dive. Now she’s been drawn back to Mexico and the career she walked away from in order to protect the most precious thing in the world: her daughter.

One desperate phone call brings salvage expert Thad Leighton back to Mexico. For his murdered brother, he’s ready to settle the score, but one look at Maren and everything changes. Years may have passed, but she’s still as mesmerizing as she once was, and a few days on site together have him questioning his priorities and why the hell he walked away from her so long ago.

Sparks between them …

A retired schoolteacher—and yes, daughter of a Fitzgerald fan—Daisy Buchanan has found her calling in the village of Millbury, Pennsylvania. While her husband endlessly renovates their old house, Daisy happily presides over Sometimes a Great Notion, a quirky shop that sells sewing bits and bobs, antiques, and jewelry.

Lyrics:

Sanctuary: Jonathan’s Song

Broken and buried in an avalanche of pain.

I’m forever stained. 

Grief and guilt are crushing me.

Shelter me.

Please, shelter me. 

Eyes shine bright with a violet light

But the white wolf calls you tonight.

Heart to heart and skin to skin

Make me believe I’m whole again.

Cut away my scars with blades of steel.

Cure the unseen wounds that never heal.

Bind them up and stay with me.

Let the white wolf run free.

You’re my sanctuary. You’re my safe …

Rules. Balance. Consequences. War.

When Fate gave Dane the water from Eden to drink, she did more than save his life. She changed his destiny.

Since the beginning, a compact between God and Lucifer has maintained a tenuous peace, balancing Soulkeepers and Watchers and the natural order of things. Dane upset that balance the day he became a Soulkeeper. Fate broke the rules.

Now, Lucifer is demanding a consequence, requiring Fate to pay the ultimate price for her involvement. God intervenes on the immortal’s behalf but in order to save her soul must dissolve the compact and with it the rules, order, and balance that have kept the …

7 Surprising Facts About Me Few People Know by Peter Palmieri

7 Surprising Facts About Me Few People Know by Peter Palmieri

7 Surprising Facts About Me Few People Know by Peter Palmieri
Author of The Art of Forgetting

1. I was raised in a home with no television and no refrigerator.

We did have complete (if outdated) sets of Encyclopedia Britannica and Encyclopedia Americana that helped pass the time on rainy days and in the evening after it got too dark to play outside. My aunt – who raised me from the age of five — bought fresh food every day during the summer. In the winter, our entire terrace became a freezer. I don’t remember a single instance when our food spoiled or when I couldn’t find something to keep me entertained.

2. I was a remarkably dumb …

Review: Sleep Well for Kids CD

Review: Sleep Well for Kids CD

Sleep Well For Kids – Relax at Bedtime

Soothing guided imagery & relaxing melodies create a nurturing atmosphere that can help children and their parents drift off to sleep. Sleep Well for Kids is part of the Live Well Series from Jeff Gold and Janet Montgomery.

I was contacted by Jeff to see if I was interested in reviewing this CD. Since I am a mom to a persnickety toddler who isn’t always a fan of sleep, I jumped at the chance! We received the CD and Natalie loved looking at the animals all throughout the front, back and inside covers.

Since it was nearing bedtime, I put the CD in and let it play. Natalie actually …
