"The Cat Who Ate His Tail"
by Jacqueline Simon Gunn

Author's Book Description :
    Have you ever wondered what your pets are thinking?

    Inspired by true events, this heartwarming story is told from the perspective of Sneakers, a curious cat with serious emotional baggage. Neglected and ultimately abandoned by his original owner, he compensates for the trauma by overeating and making droll observations about the crazy love life of his new owner… who also happens to be a psychologist.

    Through paying attention to her work, the loving home she provides and watching her own trials and tribulations, Sneakers learns so much more about life, love and the ways of the world. Both their lives take unexpected turns, both suffer for their own inability to see their inherent worth. But just maybe they can help each other learn the most important lesson of all before it’s too late: If you let it, love can heal even the deepest wounds.

    Sometimes you must be willing to take that second chance.

"A Scottish Lord for Christmas" [Sins and Scandals Series, Book 3] by Lauren Smith

Author's Book Description : The best gifts come wrapped in a kilt . . .

Beautiful Lady Rowena Pepperwirth can have any man her heart desires. Unfortunately no gentleman has elicited even the slightest flutter---until she meets the brooding Lord Forres at a holiday house party. With just one look at the dashing Scottish lord, Rowena suddenly knows what she wants for Christmas.

Quinn MacCauley, Lord Forres, is in need of a wife. When he meets the lovely Lady Rowena, he knows she'll be a good mother to his daughter and a capable household manager. But Quinn doesn't count on Rowena being the most tempting woman he's ever met. He's determined not to risk his heart, but Rowena's just as determined to give him the greatest holiday gift of all---a chance at true love.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! For the past year, Quinn has suffered the loss of his wife who died unexpectedly, but now for his young daughter's sake he plans to find a suitable woman to marry. Rowena is an idealistic young lady who is a romantic at heart and loves children. These two meet at a house party and soon their lives quickly change for the better .... or so Rowena believes, Quinn may come around once she helps him "see the light."

#Horror Book Recommendations from Natasha at @myreadingisodd & some #StephenKing Characters! | Fangirling & Spreading the Word

Natasha, of myreadingisodd, started this series--which probably will have more videos on her account at some point--about her recommending horror novels based on iconic Stephen King characters and what she feels they might enjoy reading. For the three videos I have seen thus far within this video series (which you can watch all below) I can wholeheartedly say I love her thoroughness and everything about each video! And that is coming me -- a girl who 90% of the time reads romance, watches horror films with a pillow in front of her face and thus far has only read one official horror novel. 🤣 Yet, with that being said, I do promote ANY kind of novel on here even if it's not what I read. Therefore I give you ... Natasha! 😀

Abandoned as a child on Christmas Eve, he has no use for the holiday season. When his best friend’s widow arrives in Glacier Creek, Montana, determined to give her small daughter the fairy-tale Christmas she’s dreaming of, Cole is prepared to dislike her.

"Wolf in her Soul" [Salvation Pack Series, Book 8] by N. J. Walters

Author's Book Description : Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her--the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He's just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she's the assault victim on a case he's working on, and there's a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she's his mate.

Hannah Burdette has a secret she's never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who--or rather, what--she is. There's a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her "impure" blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn't have to be alone anymore, she's wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

Each book in the Salvation Pack series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed in any order.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! About a decade ago, Reece dreamed of a woman that had red hair and who he needed to save. Therefore, he followed what his dream told him and moved away from his pack in North Carolina to Chicago where he became a detective. Yet, those years hit him hard by living in a city and being away from his family, so the day he decides to finally go back home for good he meets the woman from his dream, Hannah. She definitely needs his help as she has someone who wants to kill her. But are they both ready for all the new changes that fate has in store for them?
