It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Vanquished by Bradley Wright
Xander King, book 2

The deeper the wound, the sweeter the revenge.

When ex-Special Forces legend, Xander King, moved his Vegas celebration to a yacht off the coast of the Virgin Islands, he was supposed to be taking some much needed time off. When he woke up in the hospital a week later, all he had time to do then...was run. It's bad enough that Russia's most feared assassin is after him. But it's the man who sent this deadly killer, and why he sent him, that has Xander desperately scrambling every resource at his disposal.

As if things aren't difficult enough, Xander has been forced to cooperate with the CIA, and mistrust begins to unravel his new team. With lies and betrayal burdening every decision, the pressure mounts to end the threat before the threat ends them. The pressure...Xander can handle. It's the shocking revelation of a jaw-dropping secret that finally brings him to his knees.

Injured, exhausted, and furious, with everything he has ever fought for now in question, the only thing left for him to do, is fight. This time, however, Xander will have to overcome far more than just bullets if he hopes to vanquish this enemy.



What did you just finish?
Whiskey and Roses by Bradley Wright
Xander King, book 1

If someone murdered your family, how far would you go for revenge?

The world knows Xander King as a handsome, charismatic, and successful young businessman who was able to rise above a violent tragedy in his past. The CIA knows Xander as the US military's most legendary soldier, turned vigilante assassin, that sharpens his skills in the shadows until he can exact revenge on the monster that stole his family. They have watched his double life go on long enough, and now the government wants their weapon back.

Xander has different plans.

After a passionate night with Hollywood sweetheart, Natalie Rockwell, is violently interrupted by a surprise attack at Xander's home, those plans are set in motion. Xander's experts say it's suicide, but with the CIA closing in he must sidestep them and take the fight directly to his rival. With unlimited resources and unimaginable skills, Xander's enemy will need an army to survive his wrath. Turns out, that's precisely what he has. This is no longer just about revenge, this is war.


What do you think you'll read next?
The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery
Mischief Bay, book 1

Nicole Lord wants to be a good wife, but there's a difference between being supportive and supporting her husband, who quit his job to write a screenplay she's never seen. He won't even help take care of their son, leaving Nicole to run the house and work full-time at her Mischief Bay Pilates studio. Can she say enough is enough without losing the man she loves?

Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg rose to become Vice President in her firm, but she wonders now whether she made the right choice. An exciting new love with a great guy convinces her that it might not be too late-until he drops a bombshell that has her questioning whether she can have it all. And if she can, does she want it?

Although Pam Eiland has a beautiful house and a husband she loves, she feels… restless. She wonders who a stay-at-home-mom becomes after the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise her husband brings the heat and the humor back to their marriage, but when unexpected change turns her life upside down, she'll have to redefine herself. Again.

(I picked this one up at the library while on vacation and I've got to return it)
