BlueMoon Teaser

 

Blue Moon is the final book in a double trilogy. I have read ever last word in ever last book. Every book, every chapter, every paragraph and every last word leaves you wanting more. The character development is done wonderfully. I for one, would not mind stealing the gorgeous and sexy Ayden Stone from Beth Parker Stone. Although, Beth is a fireball and I would have quite a fight on my hands if I did attempt to steal him. Beth is an incredibly strong and beautiful woman making her more than a match for Ayden.

Sad to see the their story end, Sydney does not leave us hanging or wondering about the fates of our beloved characters. She ties up each loose end beautifully. I highly recommend this entire series. If you want a series that has a bit of everything in it, then I will tell you to pick this wonderful series up and savor each moment.

From the first book to the last, Sydney delivers wonderful moments both good, tense, thrilling, scary and heartbreaking.

I give this series 5 wonderful stars!!!!! I will miss Ayden and Beth but I know that I can return to their story anytime I miss them too much. I love to find great novels and I will reread the greats multiple times!

Equine Love

Standard

Hello all,

I have loved horses since I was nine years old. It was like a switch came on. One day I was afraid of the them, the next I loved them. I did the usual reading and watching movies about horses and I took lessons. When I met a girl down the street from me, I had access to horses several times a week. Through her family, I learned about horse care and more about riding. I was introduced to horse showing and trail riding.

After I moved away, horses were harder to be around. It wasn’t until after high school that I picked up a part time job caring for horses at a private boarding place. When I left that place, I leased my first horse. An American quarter horse by the barn name of Bear. Registered name of Sugar Flash Clark. A great grandson of Doc Bar on top and Sugar Bars on the bottom. He was a gentle bombproof horse.

I wound up buying him and owned him for five wonderful years. When I had outgrown him and my goals had changed, I sold him to a wonderful woman who owned him for the rest of his life. Colic claimed him at age 28.

An interesting story is the day that the woman who bought Bear called me about him was the same day I was going to look at my next and current horse. She fell in love with Bear and bought him. I fell in love with my next horse, but the current owner was out of town. When he returned four days later, I bought him and went to pick him up.

The horse I bought was a three year old quarter horse. His barn name at the time was Webster. The owner had just gotten him registered. Late as far as papered horses go. His registered name is Argyles Sensation. I changed his barn name to Blaze. He is a grandson of Investment Asset through his dam. Through his sire he is a great grandson of Two Eyed Jack.

I bought him as a show horse and have shown him only about a dozen times. I do trail ride with him but he is happier as a show horse. For years I kept him in a show barn, under lights and blanketed. Now he’s a pasture horse and loves it. He lives with two donkeys and one or two other horses. Loves not being cooped up in a stall up to 12 hours a day.

On March 16th, he reached his 14th birthday. He is just as sweet and affectionate as he was at three.

My love of horses had to transfer into my novel, so Mary became a horse trainer. The horses became supporting characters in their own right. Each horse in my life and my stories have distinct personalities and it shows. I loved how Ghostly Image, in JAM, made her story and voice be heard. She developed a tight bond with Mary. And even developed a bond with Jordan too. Ghost’s role in the story became bigger than I intended.

Today’s spotlight is on Eryn LaPlant. She is wonderful talented writer. I am beyond lucky to call her a friend and colleague. Eryn has the sweetest and biggest heart and it shows in her writing.

She has as of today, released five books! The third book in The Falling for Heroes series, Falling for Phoenix follows the story of the third Hannel brother. Rhys is the middle child between older Interpol brother Edward and movie star brother, Oliver.

When Rhys meets a beautiful woman named Gracen Phoenix, she turns his life upside down in more ways than he can count. Everything he did and thought, she has changed his views on his world.

I couldn’t put this book down! I have read the two previous novels and fell hard in love with “The Shock,” Oliver Hannel. Edward is easy to love as well and Rhys, well, you will fall hard for him too.

I encourage you to pick up this entire series! Falling for Heroes is a wonderful sexy set of books! Falling for Shock, followed by Falling for Freedom and now, Falling for Phoenix!

If you love Ollie and Edward, you will flip over Rhys!

Then check out her other work. Beneath the Wall and Blue Lute!

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Love teaser Tuesday! It’s a great time for authors to showcase their books! So I am taking today to post a couple of teasers for JAM Jordan and Mary. My debut novel.

JAM: Jordan and Mary

Secrets refuse to remain buried.

Bonds of love are tested.

Horses prove they are loyal creatures.

Jordan Jennings is a successful self-made photographer with a dicey past he refuses to face. He’s had no reason to, happy in his life with his mother and twin brother. That is until he meets a woman strong enough to draw him from his repression.

Running from her own past, Mary Evans has lived in hiding for the last 12 years. Horses became her life when she discovered she had a gift for working with them. When she is brought a fiery cremello mare, a mental bond develops between her and the animal like no other. But it isn’t until a sinfully gorgeous photographer enters her barn that her life takes a drastic turn.

Together, Jordan and Mary find a new lease on life. But before their future can begin, they must return to the each of their pasts, two parts of their worlds that collide and threatens to tear them apart. Now the question remains, will they survive the torment? And is it even possible to achieve the perfect happily ever after?

Horse injuries

Standard

Horses are big creatures and one would think they are strong, but they they surprisingly delicate. My quarter horse, Blaze had a swollen right hind leg this morning. I am not sure what he did exactly. Most likely, he banged it or got it caught. There are no cuts. The leg is swollen from the hock down. He is walking on it and bearing weight. He even rested his left hind putting full weight on his right hind while I hydro-ed the leg.

My first step was to access the damage. I found no cuts but could tell the right was swollen compared to the left hind. Then I watched him walk. No lameness. He was sound on it. If I had made him trot, I probably would’ve seen him favor it.

Next I felt the leg. On the inside of the long bone, I felt heat. No a huge amount but definitely some heat. So I took him to the hose and applied water. Cold water can help reduce swelling. After running water on it for several minutes, came the tricky part.

I needed to give Blaze bute. It’s an anti-inflammatory. It relieves pain and helps with swelling. Only Blaze hates eating it. Bute comes in three forms: Powder, paste and pill. I only have powder. Sprinkling it on his food won’t work. He eats around it. He also hates paste. So I did a combination. I took the powder, added it a large tube syringe and added water. After mixing it together, I was able to squirt it into his mouth after a bit of a struggle as he hates getting a tube in his mouth. I have the same battle when it comes to deworming him.

It has been awhile since I have had to treat Blaze for injury. He’s a pretty low maintenance horse. I will monitor his leg and if it is not better by tomorrow, I will consult with my vet.

Below is a full picture of Argyles Sensation aka Blaze and his hind legs while I hydro-ed it.
