I was inspired by a post I read by Kelsye at Wise Ink Blog Ultimate Bloggers Guide to Growing Your Readership. Her list of ways to increase traffic got me thinking about how little I actually do to set schedules and really update readers on what to expect from my little slice of the inter-webs. In theory, this feature should help keep me on track and active. My long term goal is to turn this post into a weekly newsletter of sorts outlining where we are and where we are going.
My dogs got in on the fun with my Secret Sister’s box this month! It was dog themed with a few super adorable gifts for Jake and Bailey along with some goodies for me! A stuffed fox with plenty of squeakers (squeakers are important!), Greenie teeth cleaning treats (Yum), an adorable doggie pen, a dog poem book from my Goodreads Wish List and
I’ve already started reading some of the poems and its rather cute. It actually reminds me how lucky I am to have such well behaved dogs! 😉 So, my afternoon plans are to sit and read dog poetry while my dogs enjoy their spoils:
I definitely adore this box for so many reasons. Dogs being one of my favourite things, but also the fact that my dogs will be busy the entire afternoon! I’m going to leave this post with mostly just pictures of Jake and Bailey enjoying themselves because: dog pictures!

I don’t know what happened but over the last year my interest in adult romance has waned. I received A Touch of Passion earlier this year and really enjoyed it, but it was at the end of my “fling” with romance works. Considering Bowen is releasing the next book in the series and I have to know what happens next it wasn’t much of a struggle to request book four of The Disgraced Lords series. It’s going to be fantastic!
Sensual heat melts the ice in the new Disgraced Lords novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans, as a marriage of convenience leads to delightful pleasure—and mortal danger.
Lady Marisa Hawkstone’s nightmare is just beginning when she wakes up naked, with no memory of the night before, lying next to Maitland Spencer, the Duke of Lyttleton—a man so aloof and rational, he’s nicknamed “the Cold Duke.” A scandal ensues, in which Marisa’s beloved beau deserts her. As a compromised woman, Marisa agrees to marry Maitland. But on her wedding night, Marisa discovers the one place the duke shows emotion: in the bedroom, where the man positively scorches the sheets.
Taught from a young age to take duty seriously, Maitland cannot understand his new wife’s demands on his love and affection. Marisa’s hot-blooded spirit, however, does have its attractions—especially at night. In retrospect, it seems quite silly that he didn’t marry sooner. But being one of the Libertine Scholars requires constant vigilance, even more so when the enemy with a grudge against his closest friends targets Marisa. Now Maitland must save the woman who sets his heart aflame—or die trying.
