Falling for Fall and don't miss these great book deals!

Monday just keeps coming around again.
Weird, right?

The BOY picking apples for the Fall Festival at the firehouse.
Grimm on a limb! I'm sure he'll be just as popular as that creepy elf!
Hamish the Hairy of the Cattle Clan MacShortRib, stealing Halloween candy.

It's foggy and chilly in the North East this morning. I woke to see frost on the pumpkin. Literally. And, the grass. And, the cars.

My most favorite season is almost over, BUT ... the BOY and I had to complete one very important tradition.

When Officer Blake Herro agreed to go undercover in the Mob, he thought he understood the risks. But he's made mistakes and now an innocent woman has become their target. He's determined to protect her at all costs.

The Mob's death threat turns Dr. Dani Hart's life upside down, but there is one danger she doesn’t anticipate. As she's dodging bullets, she's falling in love with Blake. With danger all around them, will she and Blake survive and have a happy ending, or will the Mob make good on their threat?


She had no time to react when a strong force bowled her through the doorway of her apartment, and a large hand plastered over her mouth. The man she had bumped into on the stairs had a firm grip on her as he kicked the door closed behind them. She struggled to get free, but his hold kept her back pressed against his chest.

“It’s okay. I’m a cop. My name is Blake Herro.” He hauled her into the living room. “There are six armed men coming up the stairs. We need to hide. Where can we hide?”

Her mind went blank, she even forgot about the ice cream.

“Where?” he demanded with a quick shake.

She pointed to the six-foot long, three-foot high handcrafted cedar chest she used for a coffee table. Officer Herro pulled her to it and flung open the lid.

“Get in,” he ordered.


Chrys Fey is the author of Hurricane Crimes and 30 Seconds. She is currently working on the sequel to Hurricane Crimes that’ll serve as book two in the Disaster Crimes series.

When Fey was six years old, she realized her dream of being a writer by watching her mother pursue publication. At the age of twelve, she started writing her first novel, which flourished into a series she later rewrote at seventeen. Fey lives in Florida where she is waiting for the next hurricane to come her way.



At eighteen, Yoko Hirano falls into the tentacles of a human trafficking organization and is forced into prostitution. Her first sexual experience is close to a rape, so she becomes traumatized and her opinions about men are low and unflattering. She uses her charms only as means of manipulation.
Four years later she meets the tall, dark and charming antique dealer Mark Chandler. They both acknowledge reluctantly the complicated chemistry between them, but Yoko’s grand scheme of things doesn’t involve falling in love, nor does she think Mark would want her if he found out about her past. To get revenge and prevent other girls from sharing her fate, she plans to ruin the Chinese triad that has destroyed her life and innocence.
However, she doesn’t realize that Mark can be an asset in her plans of bringing down the powerful mobster Michael Chen and his interlopes. 
Together, they make a quite formidable pair...

  1. Fall is my favorite season too. Why does it have to go by so quickly?? Looks like you and your cutie had a blast raking leaves. :)

  2. Great set of shots getting your boy jumping in the leaves!
    Fall is my favorite. Football!

  3. So many great books to pick from and so little time to read them all. As I raked leaves last week I missed having the kids around to jump into them. And help rake them.

  4. Ha! Those are some great pictures! I do enjoy fall--not too hot, not too cold. Not looking forward to winter if it's anything like last year.

  5. Those are awesome pictures of fall! I wish I could play in a big pile of leaves. ;)

    Thank you so much for including my sale announcement, Heather! I really appreciate it. And The Plot sounds gooood!

  6. I miss autumn so much. It was always my favorite season. Those pictures are great, too. My sister always takes pictures of my niece jumping in the leave piles.

  7. My husband mows our leaves so I don't get to jump in a pile anymore. Your son looked really cute when he jumped in.

    I love your fuzzy coo sitting in the candy dish.

  8. I did so enjoy those awes photo's and reading your book reviews. Thanks for a wonderful post.

  9. It's been warm for this time of year in Michigan...maybe not warm, but after a few really cold days, 40 degree weather feels warm. LOL

  10. Those are some iconic Fall photos. Nice.

    I wish the featured authors well.
