Release Day Blitz ***HOT SEAL Target (HOT SEAL Team #6) by Lynn Raye Harris***Release Day Blitz


New Release

Blurb:

Navy SEAL Adam “Blade” Garrison’s assignment to infiltrate a tech billionaire’s criminal operations just got complicated. His cover: bodyguard for the man’s wife. His problem: Blade knows Quinn Halliday far too well. A sophisticated version of the chubby, shy girl Blade once knew, Quinn brings out all his protective instincts—as well as a few carnal ones that surprise him.

Quinn’s pride in having improved herself has turned bitter. She’s trapped in a relationship with a brutal man who views her as nothing more than a possession. Blade’s unexpected arrival makes her hope for more than a barren existence in a gilded prison. Until tragedy strikes, and Quinn realizes she’s next on the hit list.

Blade will do anything to shield Quinn from danger and keep her safe. But as they draw closer, an enemy works to flush them out. If he succeeds, he’ll put an end to Blade and Quinn’s budding happiness.

Unless Blade and his SEAL Team strike first…

**Stand Alone, No Cliffhangers, No Cheating, Happily Ever After Guaranteed!**


Another captivating pageturner in the Hot Seals series by Lynn Raye Harris. I really enioyed this story about Blade and Quinn and the action around it. It was sweet, sexy and filled with lots of action from the first page to the last! 
I loved to see Blade help Quinn, the girl he knew in High School when he defended her against some bullies. He makes her see her own worth again and helps her see that it is not about her weight but about what she feels and how she feels. 
Having dealt with my own share of weight problems, imagined or not, I felt with Quinn and loved Blade for being there for her when she is caught in a marriage with someone who is not only a criminal but also someone who tears other peoples down.Another bully in town....
I loved the love story and the action that went along with it. This book was once again a wonderful and thrilling read that made me look forward to the next installment in this amazing series!

This book was a wonderful surprise! My daughter is the one who loves to 
crochet and right after having read the book, she asked me to go online 
and look up the author. Turns out that the author has a website where I 
found the next patterns to fall in love with.... 

This book has quite a number of patters for really cute and loveable looking rugs and 
pillows and bags and...other things inside. The explanations and 
instructions are well done and easy to follow. 
Apart from the patterns themselves, there are also very helpful general explanations 
and instructions on how to crochet and different sewing and crochet 
techniques involved. 

All those projects are really cute and will brighten a child's room and I am very positive 
that the kids will love them as much as I do. Those rugs and the pillows and other things that go 
along with them are sweet and charming and also not too difficult to make.

Bookbarn international re-visited...



... or how to get out of it and still have space left in the car?

                                                          
                                                                Re-visiting the Bookbarn and its rows and rows of tempting (and cheap) books.

All books in these rows cost just a pound and there are many more rows to browse...If you still don't find anything or are looking for something special, there is still the computer where you can find the other books. And if you are looking for the really old (and unfortunately also expensive) ones - there's a room for that as well where you find Darwin books and it's collection of beautiful old books.
The damage..... 


*sigh*
