Helia – What should have been a nice vacation on a yacht quickly turns into a nightmare. The only one I can trust is the guy I instantly feel a deep connection with. Carter also becomes the reason why I’m willing to put my own life in the balance to create a good outcome for all of us.
Carter – Each day to the next I’m dragging through life due to my job and taking care of my father. All while I’m trying to keep my head above water long enough to take my next breath. Helia enters my life and she completely makes my world turn on its axis. She gives me hope, makes me feel my worth and so much more, until unexplained events disrupt the balance of life and death.
* Submerge is a young adult horror/thriller suspense novella with a hint of romance *
Adler Haley writes great sex…just not under her name. And certainly not about her experiences—or lack thereof. There’s no safer place to express herself than behind the obscurity of ghostwriting romance novels. By day, Adler’s perfectly content to blend in at her boring nine-to-five as an executive assistant. At least until she meets Joel—her new boss who has her wondering if love at first sight is more than just fiction.
Joel Lewis is convinced that relationships bring out the bad in people. And marriage? The worst. Ask his parents. His siblings. And his ex-girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, Joel trades the Big Apple to take the helm at a struggling venture capitalist firm in Denver. After meeting his new assistant, he has to work overtime to fight his feelings and adhere to the no-relationships policy he’s instated for his life.
Armed with The F-Buddy Rules for Survival, a clever set of guidelines designed to keep their friendship fun and fun only, Adler and Joel find themselves whisked into the most entertaining ‘situationship’ of their lives. But it’s not long before Adler discovers a major issue with the rules—they weren’t meant to protect her from falling in love. They were only ever meant to keep Joel from finding out.

Windsor – She’s intriguing. Smart, brilliantly beautiful. She knocked me into awareness when I almost bumped into her. Anything but mundane, she’s a biker princess and a special agent trained to solve criminal cases. I guess she’s not the only one knocking the wind right out of me when my life takes an unexpected twist.
Linnette – Handsome. Kind. And let’s not forget those tantalizing abs, making him irresistible after he almost ran into me. A one chance meeting. They say a first impression matters, and with us it definitely did. And of course the first guy who jolted my heart into awareness becomes a case I need to give my full attention to. Can you spell disaster? Because I can, in full detail, when his family brings death to my doorstep.
Love, family, loyalty; united as one or lost forever.
This is the complete Ryckerdan Trilogy (For One Chance, We Two Shall, Unite Three Times); a royal romance set in a biker world where mafia collides with justice.
What does Live Your Best Life really mean? To me, it means being the best me that I can be for me and not anyone else. It means living in my truth and not the truth of someone else. It means living the life that I was meant to live and being okay with it deep down inside myself and not based on what others think, believe or approve. It means a lot to me. It’s not always fun and sometimes it’s downright scary but it’s me and I’m okay with it. Why? I only have one life to live on this earth and this is it. You ready? Let’s go!
By request by author this review is my own thoughts.
Live Your Best Life by Julia Royston is a short, motivational book ( 91 pages) meant to encourage and provide s. how to navigate your best life. Her enthusiasm and cheerfulness is contagious and as you read, it’s easy to imagine her speaking to you with a smile on her face.. Live Your Best Life is not just a title of a book its a way to a happy life. If you need some encouragement or know someone who could use a little motivation buy this book. They will thank you! Lisa
Plants are sessile organisms that are unable to move but face the challenge of ever-changing or adverse environments. The study of the development of environmental changes in tolerant plants is fundamental for the maintenance and streamlining of high crop yields and plant adaptation in natural environments. The identification of genes that lead to changes or stress tolerance is urgently needed for the growth and development of plants in their natural environment. The Secret of Plants in the ENVIRONMENT addresses environmental concerns such as the different types of stress situations and plant adaptation to changing environments, including the positive and negative effects of stress on the growth of crops, the beginning stages of plant life cycles, and plant output. This book seeks to discuss the impact of environmental changes or stress on plant life, environmental stress physiology, and adaptation mechanisms. It highlights the impact of environmental stresses on plants and crops under changing environments and gives a comprehensive overview of how plants respond to such environments. In addition, it serves as a helpful guide to the students of BSc, MSc and to all professionals engaged in teaching and research on environmental-related subjects. It dwells on some important aspects of environmental change or stress as the main issue affecting the survival of plants at the early stages of their life cycle. Hence, the author hopes that both early-career scientists and research scholars interested in pursuing environmental science to an advanced stage would also benefit from the important information discussed in this book.
About the author:
Rishikesh Upadhyay, PhD, also known R K Upadhyay was born and grew up in a small Nepalis’ hamlet, Bhanjang Basti, just a few kilometres of Haflong, the district headquarters of North Cachar Hills, India, Rishikesh Upadhyay is an Assistant Professor, researcher, and author. He loves learning and teaching to expand his horizons and ideas. Dr. Upadhyay believes in and writes about Plants and its environment. Much of his work is confined to teaching and researching physio-biochemical and environmental stress responses in plants.
I read and reviewed this book after being contacted by the author. But my review is my own thoughts and options. As a gardener and homeschool teacher I always enjoyed sharing my garden and plants knowledge with my students. This book is written by a teacher and researcher that delivers a wealth of knowledge in between the pages of this book. With great pictures this book is readable to everyone who cares about the environment. . I will be using this book in my science class and recommend this book to others who enjoy the science and plants. Lisa

Taking the world by force is all Frederick has ever known. Domination is in his blood; which is evident in the boardroom and the bedroom. While stranded on the doorstep of his virtual assistant, Frederick finds himself in new territory. As a person who demands and takes, Frederick now finds himself ready to give.
Taryn has built her walls high with layers and layers of guilt after the deaths of her sister and nephew. Her solitary life, void of most pleasures, is her self-imposed punishment. Working is her only connection to the outside world; that is until her work barges through her front door.
Thrown together in a snowstorm, secrets are uncovered. Will Frederick break through her walls built by guilt? Can Taryn open up and let go? Or will their curiosity bring them to their knees?
I’ll be there. Through thick and thin. Ride or die. You can count on me.
The promises people make. The vows we take. Assumptions of the heart. Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions. Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.
For Grip and Bristol, love started at the top of the world on a Ferris wheel under the stars, but when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

When my past came knocking, I wasn’t expecting it to arrive in such a tempting package.
Lavender – My parents weren’t the type to win any awards, but I did learn a few things. Like how to read lines of code and get through the backdoor of pretty much any site or program. I also learned about the man my mother had dated when she’d met my dad, someone who has intrigued me for years. I never thought I’d get the chance to meet him, until my parents end up dead and I can’t think of anyone else who might be able to help. I know too much, know my parents’ death wasn’t an accident, and now I’ve been targeted. If the infamous Voodoo Tracer can’t help me, then I’m screwed.
Reality is so much better than fantasy, and with one look, I know the reason I haven’t dated is because I was waiting. For him.
Wire – I never really expected my past to come knocking at the front gates, nor did I expect it to be in such a sexy package. Lavender isn’t what I’d call a siren, but with her glasses perched on her nose, her messy hair, curvy figure, and adorable tees, she’s exactly what I want and don’t need. A nerdy, geeky, super intelligent woman who craves me as much as I crave her. So I did what any man would do… I claimed her. Now she’s mine, and if an enemy from my past thinks he can hurt her, I’d like to see him try. He might have killed her parents, but I will destroy anyone who tries to take her from me.
