The female’s back is still a mess. The male’s back has decided to join in. Solidarity is not wise in this case, male human. Don’t join the female on this one. She does not want company this time.
She took a day off, which was lovely! Princess slept with her. I kept a close eye on the male.
The female then, after playing some games and splashing around in some water, worked on the Vampire of Montana. She is now approximately 10% done the book. She is having a good time with the book. It is currently a play project.
Next week, she’ll likely start Catnapped, but she might push it off another week if she’s still having loads of fun with Vampire. (She has the luxury to do this, and that is very lovely!)
Before we showcase a book for the book faire, we have a snippet we’ve yoinked from Dirty Deeds!
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Another frown. “Who’s Jack?”
“He’s this kid who went up a hill to fetch a pail of water and ended up bonking a girl named Jill. It didn’t end well. She got pregnant and was totally ostracized. He left her to deal with the baby by herself. Karma got him, though. He ended up with syphilis. Totally melted his brain.”
“Mal, that is unkind.”
Edna, a ghost with short, finger-waved hair from the thirties, wearing a short cardigan and a tailored skirt, appeared sitting at the round table to the left. She’d been with Mal the longest. She looked at Merrow.
“The phrase means that taking time away from work rejuvenates the body and soul, and Mallory does need it. She pulled too deeply on her power and came dangerously close to death while trying to stop your two countrymen from their plot. But you know this.”
The last was gently chastising.
“It’s been three weeks. Her body is more than able.”
“Perhaps. But this is a request made by those who love her, and she is abiding by her promise to them.”
Mal snorted. “So’la does not love me. He went along because he knew it would drive me nuts.”

As the female is tired and achey, today has only one book faire entry, but it might be a fun one for those who are still in the holiday mood. Snow on the Range by Sofia Aves is available in the kindle unlimited library or can be purchased for $4.99. It is flagged as 18+ for sexual content.
Every Christmas, Red Hart Ranch opens their doors, and Montana provides the perfect backdrop for good company and better food. But this year, the table won’t be as full.
Eve Beaumont is a twin heir to Red Hart Ranch. She loves the land, loves the people, and will do anything for them. Christmas sees most of the ranch hands return to their own homes to celebrate. Only a few long term cowboys remain with the family.
When Eve and her brother Trav go into town to collect supplies, they each bring home a drifter for Christmas. Rhys Archer and Simon Haldon are as different as two cowpokes can be. One rough edged who can work the land and animals with a firm hand; the other a smooth talker with a devilish charm. Eve finds both men attractive against her better judgement, but when tragedy hits the ranch, romance is the last thing on her mind.
Vandalisms happen around the ranch, and Eve isn’t sure who she can trust. She knows neither man is who he pretends to be — but when no one listens to her, she has to prove her suspicions on her own.
Our thoughts: While this cover doesn’t precisely scream romance to us, the female loves it because it screams ‘action! adventure! excitement!’ and possibly blood. She’s in a mood.
But seriously? The composition of this cover just makes the female happy, and she’ll probably check it out on kindle unlimited just because of the cover.
What? It’s just nice and she likes it!
But for now, she is going to bed. It has been a day, and she is tired.
Happy reading, folks!
P.S.: She was supposed to write a nice fun little thingie about why she selected Joyce as the lead character for Doggone Mess, but to be honest, “it seemed like a good idea at the time” is the truth.
(What do you think? Was it a good idea?)
