October 25: “Defy the Dawn” by Lara Adrian, 14th book in the Midnight Breed series, a paranormal romance at 286 pages. Blurb from book: Daywalker Brynne
survived a hellish upbringing as a product of a madman’s lab. Tough, driven,
and devoted to her work in law enforcement, Brynne has never dared to risk
opening her heart to anyone—least of all a handsome immortal from a world on
the verge of a war against hers. Atlantean warrior Zael left the intrigue of
his realm several lifetimes ago, along with the battles he fought as one of the
queen’s legion. As a free-spirited loner walking the fringe of two worlds—that
of his secretive and powerful people, and the outside world belonging to
mankind and the Breed—it was never his intention to return to combat and
bloodshed. Nor had he imagined that he might ever be tempted into anything
stronger than desire…until he meets Brynne. Thrust together as allies of the
Order in the fight against a diabolical enemy, Zael and Brynne embark on a
mission that will ultimately force them to decide between duty to their people,
and a passion that defies all bounds. I’m still engrossed in this
series, even after fourteen books! Wonderful romance. **heavy sigh** Kirkland
I got a notice in the mail yesterday that my newspaper (Dayton Daily News) is raising rates…AGAIN. I finally got fed up with the increases and cancelled it. How bad did it get?
- In November 2014 I was paying $21.44/mo.
- In July 2015 they raised it to $24.99/mo.
- January 2016, $30.52/mo.
- July 2016, $35.49
- December 2016, $43.49!! That’s over $500/year!!!
I do have some GOOD news. Seems the construction crew is just about finished with widening the road my road connects to. Lines were painted yesterday so it would make sense that I should be able to turn left off our street today. Would you believe they actually PARK the equipment in the middle of the road so no one can get through? It’s been a pain to have to go around, but at least the end is in sight! Yay!
So… Do you subscribe to a newspaper? Think I waited too long to cancel? I’m thinking maybe I have. Oh well…
