Snow in July by Kim Iverson HeadleeSnow in July by Kim Iverson Headlee Genre: Medieval Paranormal Romance From the award-winning pen of Kim Iverson Headlee comes the exciting, poignant love story of a distressed damsel who wields a fierce fireplace poker and the smoking hot knight she must save from himself. "Captivating!" ~ Kemberlee Lugo-Shortland, Heart of Fiction Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre has been granted what every man wants: a rich English estate in exchange for his valiant service at the Battle of Hastings. To claim this reward, the Norman knight must wed the estate's Saxon heiress. Most men would leap at such an opportunity, but for Alain, who broke his vow to his dying mother by failing to protect his youngest brother in battle, it means facing more easily broken vows. But when rumors of rampant thievery, dangerous beasts, and sorcery plaguing a neighboring estate reach his ears, nothing will make him shirk duty to king and country when people's lives stand at risk. He assumes the guise of a squire to scout the land, its problems, and its lady. Lady Kendra of Edgarburh has been granted what no woman wants: a forced marriage to an enemy who may be kith or kin to the man who murdered her beloved brother. Compounding her anguish is her failure to awaken the miraculous healing gift bequeathed by their late mother in time to save his life. Although with his dying breath, he made her promise to seek happiness above all, Kendra vows that she shall find neither comfort nor love in the arms of a Norman… unless it snows in July. Alain is smitten by Lady Kendra from the first moment of their meeting; Kendra feels the forbidden allure of the handsome and courtly Norman "squire." But a growing evil overshadows everyone, invoking dark forces and ensnaring Kendra in a plot to overthrow the king Alain is oath-bound to serve. Kendra and Alain face a battle unlike any other as their honor, their love, their lives, and even their very souls lie in the balance.

Can Kieran and Emily emerge from the darkness to find happiness and love? **easily read as a standalone!** Add to Goodreads Amazon * B&N I believe I was destined to be interested in history. One of my distant ancestors, Thomas Aubert, reportedly sailed up the St. Lawrence River to discover Canada some 26 years before Jacques Cartier's 1534 voyage. Another relative was a 17thCentury "King's Girl," one of a group of young unmarried girls sent to New France (now the province of Quebec) as brides for the habitants (settlers) there. My passion for reading made me long to write books like the ones I enjoyed, and I tried penning sequels to my favorite Nancy Drew mysteries. Later, fancying myself a female version of Andrew Lloyd Weber, I drafted a musical set in Paris during WWII. A former journalist and lifelong Celtophile, I enjoyed a previous career as a reporter/editor for a small chain of community newspapers before returning to my first love, romantic fiction. My stories usually include an Irish setting, hero or heroine, and sometimes all three! I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, and Celtic Hearts Romance Writers. A lifelong resident of Montreal, Canada, I still live there with my own Celtic hero and our two teenaged children.

From Pups To Powerhouses - The Brock BlogThis shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GrowingUpPurina #CollectiveBias As most of you know my pets play a huge part in my life. I have showcased Sora multiple times on here and now it is time that the dogs get the spotlight! Donut and Oz went from pups to powerhouses in the few years that we have owned them, each growing up in their special way. Donut may have grown in size but his personality is still puppy-like. Being playful and gentle is what makes him unique to our family. He is literally our gentle giant and Joshua’s best friend. I have never seen a dog take to a toddler so well, it’s like he was born to be around kids. Oz on the other hand is the smaller of the two but the most protective. Oz has lived up to his name from day one, being great and powerful. Oz is not afraid to take charge… unless Sora is around. If I had to describe Oz in one word it would be BOMBASTIC! These two may have totally different personalities but they have shared a love for Purina since day one.

Healthy & Fun Snack With Nesquik - The Brock BlogThis post includes affiliate links. If you purchase or click on links in this post I will make a small commission at no extra charge to you! Snack time is honestly Joshua’s favorite time of day! He loves to eat. If we let him, he would probably eat ALL day. That being said I love the opportunity to include Joshua in snack time preparation. Today I am going to be sharing Joshua’s favorite snack that we make with NESQUIK Powder. It is easy to make and you can even make a game out of it. Joshua always likes to spend time in the kitchen, especially if he knows I am making food. Once I realized that there was almost no keeping him out of the kitchen, I decided that it was time to get him involved in snack time! What you need to create these delicious skyscrapers are: 1. Graham Crackers2. Fresh Fruit (Bananas & Strawberries were our choice)3. 8oz Pack of Cream Cheese4. NESQUIK Strawberry or Chocolate Powder I initially prepared things for his help while he was watching shows. I sliced the fruit and mixed the frosting. To create the frosting you mix 3/4 cup of NESQUIK Powder with the 8oz of cream cheese at room temperature. Once all that is done it’s time to get the little ones involved! The rest is simple. Frost your base cookie on one side and let your little one stack some fruit. From there you frost both sides of the graham crackers so they stick to the fruit below and then stack the opposite fruit on top of that cracker. Repeat until you decide to stop or it falls over! Warning: More fruit may end up in your toddlers mouth than on the snack but hey that’s the fun of it all! Do you like involving your little ones in Snack Time shenanigans? Our high score is stacking our crackers 8 high! Can you make it higher?

The Perfect Scarf & Beanie Duo - The Brock BlogI am a sucker for scarves and beanies. I always have been. Find me a cute infinity scarf and I will rock it all fall and winter long. I love beanies because I don’t have to worry about “doing” my hair when it get colder which is a major win for me. The reason the word, doing, is in quotes is because the way I style my hair is either a bun or soaking in it cold water and letting it air dry. Leaving your hair in a bun 24/7 is damaging but soaking it in cold water in the fall and winter seasons is like asking to become a Popsicle, so of course beanies are must have for me in the fall! So far my favorite scarf and beanie of the season is from Kaylyn’s Hit Knits N Things on etsy! The best thing about this scarf and beanie is that they are sold in a bundle so you get both for such a great price. When purchasing something from Hit Knits N Things you are helping support small business which is amazing because your purchase can be what provides diapers for the month or even Christmas presents. When I ordered this scarf and beanie set I wanted it because the red would really make my hair POP but when I received it I fell so in love with it. The colors of this scarf and beanie are so beautiful and so vibrant but moody. If that makes any sense. The colors of this scarf are perfect for not only fall but for winter and Christmas as well. Red is the perfect color to rock during the colder months! This scarf and beanie set sells for $30.00 which is about as much as you’d spend at Target. Do you have any favorite accessories? Let me know below! Also if you have yet to check out Bobby K Photography go do it! He is the photographer I use for my blog and I am absolutely in love with his work!
