Two days ago my trusty Kindle Fire died. Sniff, Sniff. I have had that Kindle for about five years or longer. When I went to bed my kindle was fine. Woke up about 3:30 in the morning, because I could not sleep and turned my kindle on and it was stuck in a boot loop. I have tried everything that I could find online, and nothing works. Yesterday, I spent nearly all day trying to revive it. No, luck. So, I broke down and ordered me a new one off of Amazon. It has a bigger screen and is lighter and thinner than the old one.
The only thing is I had a game I was playing and did not back it up on Facebook. Now, all that work on the game is lost. I cannot get in to link it to my Facebook account. Now, my poor cities on Empire Z is going to be farms for everyone else. SNIFF, SNIFF. I had 3 accounts and 6 cities on the game. I guess I will have to be content with the ones that I have left. Now, I have to read my books on my phone until I get my new Kindle in 4-5 days. I already feel quit lost without it. Until then I will continue with my morning.
Can she find a killer in a town where the basest desires are allowed to run free?
There are zombies in the Dead Zone and Juliana Norris is sent to take care of the problem. And for there to be zombies, there had to be bodies. When vampires are found to be the culprits, Juliana is sent undercover in the red light district of Kansas City. Lying to her mate, Thomas Kendrick, isn’t something she wants to do, but she’s in another vampire’s territory and Thomas would not be pleased. Besides, she’s more than capable of doing the job and she needs to prove it to everyone. Most of all herself.
Charles Morgan is in control of the Kansas City area, making a rich living off his various enterprises. Juliana goes undercover at the strip club Lust and gets sucked into his dark, decadent world. More victims turn up and the Agency is positive they’ve got their man, but Juliana is not so sure. When the Agency refuses to listen, she reluctantly turns to Thomas for help. He intervenes but finds Juliana unaware of the danger she is in and discovers she may just be too deep for him to save.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS just gets better, and better. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Owl is in trouble again. The IAA is after her for stealing several artifacts, but there is one catch, she did not do it. Yes, she stole a few, but not the ones they are accusing her for. She escapes Egypt and is determined to find who is out there stealing artifact in her name. After careful research they trace it back to the city of the dead. Someone is stealing cursed artifacts and selling them. Now, Owl must return those artifacts. During one of her retrievals, she accidentally touches one of the artifacts and is cursed. Now the clock is ticking and she must find a way to lift the curse or die. Oh, and she has to stop the people stealing the artifacts also. I love this series!! It is like Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider all in one. I also love her cat Captain, he steals the show. If you have not picked up the first book in this series, I really urge you to do so. You will love it. I give OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS 5/5 STARS.

This is Episode Four of the five-episode Timber Towers novella series.
Episode Four Excerpt:
“Tonight is about us, no one else, and that’s the way I want it to stay. No more interruptions,” Derek said.
I took a deep breath and reached for my wine. I wasn’t going to let my brain jump to conclusions. This weekend was about us. Not Taylor. Not Reed. “I agree.”
He leaned into the table, his hand moving higher up my leg. “Kiss me.”
We weren’t in a back booth, and this restaurant wasn’t nearly as private as The Hole. There were more servers, a more open floor plan, many other tables close by. What he was asking for was much more than the peck I had given him before I’d gone to the bathroom. “Those fingers,” I said, placing my hand on top of them, “aren’t planning on going any higher, are they?”
He licked his bottom lip, teasing me with just the swipe of his tongue and the whiskers that surrounded it. “They weren’t, no. But now that I know it’s on your mind, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop them.”
