ARC REVIEW Cowboy Braver by Carolyn Brown


Cowboy BraveLonghorn Canyon #3, Yay this isn't the last one! Longhorn Canyon Ranch is a working ranch that in the summer takes on some city kids on the verge of being troublemakers and teaches them about ranching and other stuff. We've already seen the oldest of the Maguire brother's find true love and their best friend/foreman find true love, Justin wasn't looking he didn't even think he was ready to settle down but the moment he set eyes on Emily Baker everything changed.

Emily is the events coordinator at a retirement community and one group she deals with heard about the Longhorn Canyon Ranch and their work with kids and asked Emily if she could arrange a special trip for them to the ranch. By all appearances Emily is a city girl but there is more to her than meets the eye. The attraction between them is instant but Emily is determined not to fall for a cowboy. Justin has never felt this way about anyone and he's determined to show Emily he means it. Aside from Emily's family that she hasn't told him about another obstacle is Justin's mother who took an instant dislike toward Emily automatically assuming she's a golddigger.

Overall, this was another really good read from Carolyn Brown. I loved Emily and Justin and all the hyjinks that the Fab Five get into are hysterical. Even though Justin's mom kind of plays the part of the bad guy in this book Emily really is her own worst enemy. The Bonus Book Second Chance Cowboy by A.J. Pine is a book I have previously read it's the first book of the of Crossroads Ranch series and is really good. So as a two for one deal this one is really good one both books are entertaining and fantastic reads.

Now or Never (San Francisco Thunder #4) - Victoria Denault

This is book #4, in the San Francisco Thunder series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.


Winnie has known Holden most of her life.  He made her feel bad in her youth.  Now he is more of a white knight.  Can she forgive him about the past?


Holden is trying to gain the trust of those he has wronged in his youth.  He has grown up and past the angst that plagued him back then.  Now, he is hoping most for the trust of one specific woman.  The one he has always wanted.


I really enjoyed reading this story.  I had wondered and waited for this book about Winnie.  It had more of punch than I expected, but it also felt very real.  The feelings were strong, the heat was sizzling, and the couple is just right.  These characters are so fun to read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

ARC REVIEW Forever Broken by Carrie Anne Ryan
Forever Broken (Talon Pack, #9)Talon Pack #9, The final book of the series! This makes me sad even though I know she's not done with this world and she plans to come back at some future point this was the genre I fell in love with her writing way back in the beginning with The Redwood Pack. So it is sad for me to see the characters go I'm happy they all have HEAs at least for the time being.

Cheyenne Liles is the last of her friends to get something more than Friend of the Pack status. She was ready to move on with her life move away and start again somewhere new until the bastard Alpha Leader of the Aspen Pack kidnaps her and starts torturing her. After he leaves her for dead something happens that leads up to a chain of events that changes everything.

Max was broken, not the same shifter he once was, no longer the happy one always ready with a joke not letting the packs horrible past get to him. No one comes away from an epic battle without some damage and due to the events in the last story arc Max was forever changed. He never thought he could find his mate and be a good mate and it never even registered that his attraction to Cheyenne might be something more until her life was on the line and then suddenly the bond was there. With Cheyenne surviving they had some clue as to what their enemy was up to but nothing prepared them for him actually doing it.
Overall, this was one hell of a conclusion and one I didn't expect. I kept distracting myself at the end of the book because I was delaying the inevitable, I really did not want this to end. It was an emotional and freaking HOT romance Max and Cheyenne finding out how they fit together and how together they fit with the pack. I love how CAR writes a battle scene how it's total chaos but her writing isn't it just portrays the chaos and the violence, it's edge of your seat, holding your breath, and reading as fast as you can action.

ARC REVIEW Highlander Ever After by Paula Quinn

The Wicked Ways of Alexander Kidd - Paula Quinn
The Sweet Surrender of Janet Buchanan - Paula Quinn
The Scandalous Secret of Abigail MacGregor - Paula Quinn
The Taming of Malcolm Grant (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs) - Paula Quinn

Highlander Ever After (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs, #8)

The MacGregors: Highland Heirs #8, I jumped into this series at the halfway point but it was okay because each book pretty much reads as a standalone. I love Paula Quinn's writing style it's part of the reason I keep coming back to her books, whatever trope she's using she has the MacGregors make it their own. Another reason I keep coming back is that I love this family. The MacGregors' are warm and welcoming to friends and are just as fierce warriors as they are fiercely loyal to those who prove they are worthy. The family also has very close, very secret ties to Queen Anne so when she orders Adam MacGregor, the reluctant heir of the clan, to marry one of her ladies in waiting they have no choice but to follow her orders. Melusina de Arenburg was raised for court life she was a trusted Lady in Waiting and the bastard daughter of the heir to the throne; part of keeping her safe was keeping her unclaimed. Sina looked upon Queen Anne as a best friend and an almost mother like figure so she couldn't understand it when Anne orders her to the Highlands to marry someone from a very infamous clan rather than the man she wants to marry.

Sina is pretty much a spoiled brat when she gets there, acting like she's the only one who had her life disrupted, once she realizes they aren't the barbarians she thought they were and that her new family isn't all that bad she starts to open her heart to Adam, who she finds attractive as much as she hates that she does. Adam is nothing but patient with her, he gets aggravated and pissed off but he sympathizes with her and he likes her. Eventually they start to warm up to each other and fall in love unfortunately Queen Anne dies not to long after the wedding and soon enough Sina's father sends for her and she has to go back to London where the marriage will be annulled.

The second half of this book takes place in London where Adam tries to prove he's worthy of staying married to Sina, but under the disguise of someone else. Sina also along the way learns some very disturbing news that makes her long for Adam all the more. Normally I don't care for the books that take place in the King/Queen's Court with all those people and their power hungry machinations and backstabbing not knowing who to trust but there are a few exceptions and this is one of them.

Overall, this was such a good book. I hate to see the MacGregors go I really hope this isn't the last of them and that maybe the next generation will be up to a few adventures.

Royal Blue Roses That Last A Year, How To Start A Rose Garden

Growing Royal Blue Roses that last a year doesn't need to be a high-support task with hit-or-miss achievement. We talked with Melinda Myers, a cultivating master and affirmed arborist who has composed more than 20 planting books, for a couple of tips on growing a vivid rose garden and getting a charge out of it a seemingly endless amount of time.

Choose a Sunny Spot

Pick an area for the garden that gets immediate daylight. "Roses grow best in full sun," Myers says that. "Morning sun rays is the best choice on the off chance that you don't have a place that gets sun throughout the day." To get morning sun (in the northern half of the globe), plant the blooms along the south or east side of the grass or house. Abstain from planting the garden in low spots in the yard where water pools. Standing water can prompt ailment, parasites and root decay.


Test the Soil First

You'll discover a great deal of appeal about adding lime or different fixings to your dirt to enhance developing conditions, yet a portion of these medicines can influence the pH of the dirt and lead to issues, as well. "Lime should just be utilized to enhance acidic soil. Continuously take a dirt test first to abstain from making issues that can take a long time to fix," Myers cautions. "The equivalent runs with sulfur. Sulfur can help bring down pH in antacid soils. However, an excess of can hurt your plants."

Myers encourages nursery workers to have their dirt tried before planting roses. Test packs are accessible at home and garden habitats for about $16. However, you'll get increasingly precise outcomes utilizing a unit and getting the outcomes from your nearby agribusiness expansion focus. Locate your nearby augmentation here. The drawback is that you'll need to sit tight half a month for the results, so test the dirt ASAP, or when the ground defrosts.


Prep The Soil

Other than any lime or sulfur, you'll additionally need to include around two crawls of peat greenery or fertilizer to your garden soil. "Burrow down something like 12 inches, which is where the feeder attaches will be," Myers says. "On the off chance that you burrow two scoop spades profound to turn over the dirt and blend in the peat greenery, that is around 12 inches, which is preferred for the plant over going shallower. Make sure to revise the whole garden bed and not simply the openings where you'll be planting the roses. So uncover and add peat greenery to the entire Royal Blue Roses that last a year garden. Else, you make an in-ground holder that can restrict root development and seepage. The peat greenery will enhance waste in earth soils and help hold dampness in sandy soils, Myers says, giving a strong establishment to the plants.


Buy Roses for Your "Hardiness Zone"

 The country are divided into Different parts of hardiness zones to ID the plants that are most likely to Distinctive parts of the nation are isolated into strength zones to ID the plants that are well on the way to thrive there. The zones depend on all things considered yearly winter temperatures. Nearby home and garden focuses can reveal to you which roses are destined to do well in your general vicinity. Myers likewise prescribes choosing sorts of roses that are low support, solid, and impervious to malady—home and garden focuses can prompt you on this. Indeed, even tenderfoot nursery workers or the individuals who have attempted to develop roses in the past can have accomplishment with these roses. "There are bunches of good roses for whatever dimension of work you need to put into them," Myers says. "The uplifting news is developing Royal Blue Roses that last a year  doesn't need to be a great deal of work."



Bare root Royal Blue Roses that last a year, which are delivered and sold without being planted in soil, ought to be absorbed a basin of water before they're planted. "Splash them medium-term or for multi-day to hydrate the roses and begin them taking up dampness," Myers says. Exposed root roses are typically less expensive to buy than pruned roses, which arrive in a holder with soil and are prepared to be planted when they're sold.
