McDonald's Carmel Frappes...YUMMY

YES, I am now addicted to McDonald's Carmel Frappes. It's not my fault! ;-p  my assistant brought them in one day and I've been a goner ever since. 
So we've nick-named Friday's "Frappe Friday's" because that's the one day we set aside out of the week to have an office treat.

So while I was online looking for pictures of McDonald's Frappes, I found this 'copy cat' recipe and I'm going to try it out this weekend.

Not only is today FRIDAY, but the weekend is upon us. YAY!! 
I so can't wait to be sipping on one of these while I'm working on the fourth book to the Other Kin Series. Hehe
Thank you Monkey and a Princess for helping us addicts out!

Have a great day everyone. Stay cool & read lots!!

Relaxation Music

Relaxation, calm down, meditation music. I found a few good pieces on Youtube, here's my favorite.

Sometimes it helps to just sit there with your eyes closed and breathe slowly in through the nose and out through the mouth.

Hope you all have a peaceful day, and read lots!! :-)

Sand Cranes of Florida

So, I'm at the day job and look out my window to see this huge bird walking across the parking lot. I call out 'what is that?' my assistant replies, 'a sand crane.' I'm like a what? I get laughed at and my assistant says, 'watch how close I can get to it before it goes the other way.' So I follow him out, and he did get pretty close to the thing, and then...and then, I hear this noise and look over to see another one behind the shrubs looking over them. First thought that came to mind... Velociraptor from Jurassic Park and believe I said, 'crap that thing sounds like a Velociraptor from Jurassic Park.' again, I get laughed at. 
Ya all in a days work LOL.

2 GREAT reviews for The Werewolf's Mate

Rating: 4 stars
Reviewed by Tulip 

The Werewolf's Mate has everything it takes for a fun and sexy read. It has hunky Lyken, sexy vampires, and bad-ass fairies all living together in peace until an ancient evil threatens not only their town but their very souls Now, an outcast has returned to save them all - and to claim the man she still loves.

...I'm a big fan of the paranormal genre and of shifter stories in general. That being said, it was the heroine that stole the thunder in this short story. Kala was one kick-ass Fairy. She protected what was hers. That meant she was willing to go to the mat to defend her mate, her daughter and her town. I also liked the fact that instead of being a vindictive bitch, Kala came back to save the same people who had treated her so badly. 
...I must say that I was very impressed with the author's writing. The plot was very interesting. The storyline was consistent. However, I thought it would have been better had we heard the hero's point of view. As a rule, I enjoy the story more when I get to experience not only the POV of the heroine but that of the hero also. Just a small suggestion would be that next time give the hero a voice too. That being said, I still liked the story enough to look forward to a next entry in the series.
For the full Long & Short  REVIEW

Heat Level: 2 Chili's
Rating: 4 Lips
Reviewer: Tangie

Ms. Salo gave her readers a well written story filled with believable chemistry.The characters were well developed and the chemistry felt real. I found the town to be totally believable and I am looking forward to meeting more of the residents of Alston.

For the full Two Lips REVIEW

JULY 2013

What does a Dragon shifter do when she’s told her soul mate has been chosen—fight like hell.

Mariwen Gawain, dragon shifter and protector of Alston trusts very few and when she comes back to protect her home and territory from the darkness, her body ignites with passion for Rhys Beven the powerful vampire coven leader of Alston.

Fighting her passions and the threats to the town, Mari breaks down and gives the hot-blooded Vamp a chance.

Learning that trust is a necessity as they fight the darkness for their town, their lives, and their love, especially when Mari charges into battle using her dragon’s fire breath full force at their enemy with Rhys right in the middle of the battle field. 

Have a great Sunday all and read lots!!
