Friday's Feature Freebie: Dark Wolf Rising by Rhyannon Byrd

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and all have survived Black Friday.  Today has been a very lazy day.  I've been on the couch pretty much the entire day watching snipits of football, while reading.  I'm trying to dwindle down my series so I'm currently reading Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan and For Love of Evil by Piers Anthony.  For Love of Evil is in paperback which is why I'm also reading Spark on my Nook.  I prefer not to read paperbacks in bed and I do most of my reading in bed.  Both of these books have started a little slow, plus it's been over a year since I read the last book in either series; I'm having some recall issues.  If you are relaxing on the couch looking for something to do, check out this freebie!

Dark Wold Rising by Rhyannon Byrd

Eric Drake, a powerful Dark Wolf, has never trusted himself around human females-preferring to mate only within his pack. That is, until he encounters Chelsea Smart snooping around Silvercrest pack land in search of her missing sister. Secretly, Chelsea thinks Eric is the sexiest man she's ever seen, though she is wary of his potent Alpha energy. Then it's discovered that Chelsea's sister is being held by a pack of vicious Lycans, and Eric heroically leaps into action. Now, Chelsea will risk everything-her body and soul-to surrender to the passion that will mark her as Eric's woman for all eternity...if they survive. ~ Goodreads

Happy Friday!

Top 10 Tuesday- Top 10 Things we are Thankful for

This week's Top 10 Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.  Tonight's topic, Top 10 Things we are Thankful for.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, why not reflect in what we are thankful for.  I once heard a saying, "What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"  Makes you think.  We are so busy day after day, do we take the time to be thankful for everything that we have today?  I know I don't always.  Well, this list should cover us for tomorrow.

1. My friends and family, who recommend me new books. All our conversions end up getting around to "What are you currently reading?"

2. My boyfriend, he supports my crazy reading habits by purchasing me a tablet, pick up books that are on hold for me at the library and being understanding when my only verbal response is "uh-huh" to all his questions when my nose is in a book. 

3. Book Club, it provides an environment of wine, books, fantasy boyfriends and girl time. All things I love. 

4. Libraries, without libraries I would be broke many years ago and wouldn't have been induced to so many lovely books. 

5. Authors, without authors we wouldn't have all these great stories that help us to discover who we are and who we want to be.

6. Books, they transport us to a different world and body. They provide a escape from reality that everyone needs from time to time, no matter how old you are.

1. My husband, for everything; my kids, my sanity, and for understanding me so well.

2. My kids, without the idle time at little league games and practices I wouldn't have read as many books that I have.

3. My family, friends and co-workers, for letting me vent, keeping me on track, and being supportive. 

4. My job, for challenging me to be a better person, so I can provide for my family and be able to support my habits (see #5 and #6).

5. My camera and equipment, my creative outlet to capture all the important moments to freeze forever in time.

6. My nook, for providing me with hours and hours of entertainment.

7. Authors, for developing wonderful characters and worlds for me to visit any place, time or day.

What are you thankful for and couldn't live without?
