About the Books:

Tainted Blood by M.L. Brennan

Former film student Fortitude Scott is finally gainfully employed. Unfortunately, said employment happens to be with a group of sociopathic vampires—his family. And as much as Fort is loath to get too deep into the family business, when his brother, Chivalry, is temporarily unable to run the territory, it’s up to Fort to keep things under control.

So when the leader of a powerful faction of shifters turns up murdered, Fort finds himself tracking down a killer while navigating dangerous rivalries, longtime grudges, and hidden agendas. Even with the help of his foxy kitsune sidekick, Suzume, he’ll need to pull out all the stops to hunt for the paranormal assassin.

But as he calls on fairies, witches, and ghouls for help, he discovers that the problem is much bigger than a single dead werebear. The supernatural community is preparing for a massive shift in power within the Scott family leadership—and Fort has landed right in the middle of the gathering storm.…

Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards

Half-bloods with Thierry’s skill set are given two options. They can join the conclave’s marshal program, or they can pack their bags. Turn down the job offer, and you’ve just shredded your residency pass for the mortal realm and booked yourself a one-way ticket to Faerie.

Texas is the only home Thierry has ever known, and she’s not going anywhere. Even if it means following in her notorious father’s footsteps as a peacekeeper. But pinning on the badge opens her eyes to the fact sometimes fae need protection too, and that sometimes humans are the real monsters.


Books by Dawn Brower

A Flawed Jewel

Pieretta Carlyle experienced the loss of her father, leaving her alone in the world except for her grandpere, Comte Renard Dubois. The comte insists that she travel to France to live with him. Pieretta doesn’t want to leave Charleston and the only home she has ever known. Her grandpere is her guardian, and she must do what he says.

Thor has a score to settle, and Pieretta is the key to his revenge. He became a pirate unwillingly after his business partner tried to murder him. He must acquire Pieretta by any means necessary, and he doesn’t mind plundering a ship to obtain her.

When Pieretta and Thor meet, they are instantly attracted to each other against their better judgments. Pieretta is disgusted by the pirate’s actions. Thor knows what Pieretta believes, but proceeds with his plans anyway. She is only a tool to achieve vengeance. What happens will depend on Thor’s need for revenge and Pieretta’s ability to forgive him for his dastardly deeds.

A Crystal Angel

After a night of cards and drinking, Thor’s splitting headache is the least of his worries. When a messenger arrives with a contract for him to sign, his wife Pia discovers he’s agreed to betroth their son to the Earl of Devon’s daughter. Pia’s beyond furious and demands he fix it—or else. After overhearing the argument between their parents, the twins Liam and Lily decide to runaway in protest of the contract. Thor and Pia set out to find their rebellious children before something dreadful happens to them. Will Thor convince Pia to forgive him and find the twins before Christmas, or will their family fall apart forever?

Cowgirl Fever

Dallas Novak swore off women after his fiancée broke their engagement when his parents died. His plans were drastically changed when he was suddenly responsible for his family and their ranch, Novak Springs. Resigned to his new life, he threw himself into making the ranch successful alongside his siblings. They were the only things he had room for in his life. That changes when his little sister comes home from college with a broken heart of her own. She needs a distraction and has an idea for a Cowgirl Yoga program on the ranch. Dallas reluctantly agrees to give her new business a trial run so she has something to keep her mind on her lost love.

When Emma Novak approaches her to write an article for her new business, she drops everything to experience what a real ranch is like. She had secretly always loved ranches and is attracted to sexy cowboys. So with her best friend in tow, they prepare to experience a horse ranch in Washington state.

When Dallas meets Ginnifer her is instantly attracted to her. He starts to question his rule of only spending one night with a woman and forgetting about her. The more time he spends in Ginnifer’s company, the more he wonders if he can live without her. Can he get over the betrayal he felt when his ex-fiancée left him long enough to grab happiness?

Coveted by Shawntelle Madison

For werewolf Natalya Stravinsky, the supernatural is nothing extraordinary. What does seem strange is that she’s stuck in her hometown of South Toms River, New Jersey, the outcast of her pack, selling antiques to finicky magical creatures. Restless and recovering from her split with gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Thorn, Nat finds comfort in an unusual place: her obsessively collected stash of holiday trinkets. But complications pile up faster than her ornaments when Thorn returns home—and the two discover that the spark between them remains intense.
Before Nat can sort out their relationship, she must face a more immediate and dangerous problem. Her pack is under attack from the savage Long Island werewolves—and Nat is their first target in a turf war. Toss in a handsome wizard vying for her affection, a therapy group for the anxious and enchanted, and the South Toms River pack leader ready to throw her to the wolves, and it’s enough to give anybody a panic attack. With the stakes as high as the full moon, Nat must summon all of her strength to save her pack and, ultimately, herself.

Lord Goldstone, a Scottish duke, thwarts her carefully laid plans at every attempt. Sparks fly as the pair find themselves at odds with each other. Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion? Is it strong enough to make Amelia give up her English home after all?

    Ham. It’s good cold for sandwiches or heated up to eat with sides. Oh and the desserts. But we were good this year and had fruit salad for dessert. LOL

  2. Margaret Cook

    Desserts are great leftovers. When they start to dry out, put ice cream on top and they’re good. I have half a chocolate pie left this year.

  3. Northwomn

    We made chicken pot pie this year and somehow even the crust is awesome the next day. We also made raspberry pie.

    We spend Christmas morning and have breakfast at my mom’s and then go to my grandmother’s for lunch. So we get home late in the evening and just have a light snack type dinner. So there are no leftovers for us after Christmas. I may have to go get a ham to make this weekend so I have some leftovers. 🙂

  5. Cold ham slices and my MIL’s fruit salad is my day-after-Christmas breakfast every year. We never have loads of leftovers of any other stuff thank goodness as I’m really the only family member who will eat them. 😛

  6. Barbara E.

    Turkey, I love the nice turkey sandwich with a bit of cranberry sauce added to it. And of course the left over pumpkin pie is great for breakfast. 😀

  7. Shelley Romano

    Turkey. You can also make Turkey with gravy. Turkey sammiches with lettuce, tomato, and provolone!
