3 stars-- Cody's Come Home by Mary Sullivan

Cody's Come Home started off very strong for me. It was action packed and had me anxious as the heroine found herself in desperate straights--not only being chased through the woods and shot at but injuring herself and being trapped in the woods overnight. I was all in and captivated especially after a childhood friend, who'd just come back home, becomes her rescuer and defender against someone who is clearly out to harm her. But things puttered out for me a bit in the end.

4 stars-- A Duke to Remember (Season for Scandal #2) by Kelly Bowen

Oh my. Bowen totally rocked this one. From start to finish I was seriously smitten with A Duke to Remember.

The quick of it is that a duke has died and his heir? Well, most think him long dead since he disappeared as a child. Everyone but his sister and his mother who are being made out to look crazy. So it's come to Elsie and her team to hunt down the long lost heir and help him claim his title from a cousin who will stop at nothing to claim it himself.

3 stars-- The Stranger (Wounded Warrior #2) by Anna del Mar

Southern girl vs Alaska. Oh dear. The Stranger was full of exhilarating action, family drama, and enough heat to keep you warm even during the coldest of Alaskan nights.

The quick of it is that Summer's younger sister has run away and she's headed to Alaska to track her down. A somewhat simple task if only Alaska would stop trying to kill her! Yeah. She's having no luck with this state at all. Thankfully a hot stranger dealing with his own demons comes to her rescue. Though he may just be a handful all on it's own. Mmhm.

So I liked a number of things about this one...

It's time, once again, for Blog Ahead! Woohoo!

This challenge it's all about getting ahead and giving yourself a blogging buffer.
It's amazing how much having extra scheduled posts can make during emergencies, vacations or just when dealing plain ol' blogging slumps. It can really cut the stress during every day blogging as well :) And what better way to get ahead than with the support of other bloggers?

Tag: The Cat Herder [Edition 21] -- art, muffin tops & dicks on fire?!


Bwahaha so lots of kitteh like usual and some naughty humor and, well, a couple NSFW ones here too.
Click with caution!

Rock the Blog-- Random Blogger Features You Should Know

Rock the Blog is our  "How To" for bloggers!

From graphics to html and all kinds of bloggery goodness!

This feature will focus primarily on the Blogger platform (since that's where I'm hosted) though some ideas may apply to Wordpress.

I'm so bad at posting these! But going to try and get back on a schedule with them. If you're on Blogger and curious on how to do something let me know and I'll see what I can do. For today...

There are SO many elements available in Blogger. Some of yall will know all of these but I figured I'd go ahead and share since I know some are starting out as well. 

So. Some of the little elements you can tweak or use.

4 stars-- Trouble Walks In (The McGuire Brothers #2) by Sara Humphreys

I finally read a Sara Humphreys!!! I've been having a lust-fest over her covers for ages and damn! I'm real sad I haven't managed to read any of them before now. Trouble Walks In was fantastic!

The quick of it is that female realtors are being targeted and it's got Ronan all in a dither because his childhood crush and current friend just so happens to be one of the top agents in the city. Thankfully an out of town wedding provides the perfect excuse to get her safe and hopefully spark up something more than just friendship between them. Win-win as far as he's concerned...
