Cowboy Painting

 I did a little painting again - I saw this picture in my paint class and had to give it a try.  After one class, I have two of the wooden beams done.  Very enjoyable.  If you look closely, you can just about make out the cowboy sitting on the fence.  :)

Watcha reading?

It’s Monday! What are you reading this week? is hosted at One Person’s Journey Through a World Of Books. It’s a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

I spent the weekend reading the three books (three friends' stories) from the Magnus Pack series by Shelly Laurenston (see post below).  They were such cute love stories with funny, funny dialog  - loved the girls and their guys - wow!  I am still looking around for something to read next.

Magnus Pack Series by Shelly Laurenston Book 3


Angelina Santiago didn't think her life could get any stranger. Her best friend is a shapeshifter. Her other best friend is in love with one. And people are actively trying to kill her. But she never thought helpful hillbillies would kidnap her, drag her cross country, and dump her at the home of their eldest brother and gorgeous shapeshifter, Nikolai Vorislav, for safe keeping. Nik the Hillbilly Tiger never wanted a woman in his life for more than a night, but he never met anyone like the psychotic hellcat his brothers drop on his doorstep. Now he has every intention of showing his little house pet exactly how strange and sexy life can get.

Magnus Pack series by Shelly Laurenston Book 2

How much trouble can one small female be to a modern-day shapeshifting Viking? Well…it really depends on local gun laws.

Conall Víga-Feilan, direct descendent of Viking shifters, never thought he’d meet a female strong enough to be his mate. He especially didn’t think a short, viper-tongued human would ever fit the bill. But Miki Kendrick isn’t some average human. With an IQ off the charts and a special skill with weapons of all kinds, Miki brings the big blond pooch to his knees—and keeps him there.

Miki’s way too smart to ever believe in love and she knows a guy like Conall could only want one thing from her. But with the Pack’s enemies on her tail and a few days stuck alone with the one man who makes her absolutely wild, Miki is about to discover how persistent one Viking wolf can be.

Magnus Pack Series by Shelly Laurenston - Book 1

What a fun weekend read this was - three books in three days.  Loved this series - so, so funny.  I am definately going to find some of her other books.

What's an Alpha Male to do when he meets the Alpha Female of his dreams? Step one, hide all sharp objects. All Zach Sheridan ever wanted was to become Alpha Male of his Pack and be left alone. What he definitely didn't need in his life was some needy female demanding his attention. What he never saw coming was the vicious, scarred female who not only demanded his attention but knew exactly how to get it. Sara Morrighan knew this was the best she could expect from her life. Good friends. A nice place to live. And a safe job. But when Zach rode into her small Texas town with his motorcycle club, Sara knew she wanted more. She knew she wanted him. But after one sexy encounter with her dream biker, everything is starting to change. Her body. Her strength. That new thing she's doing with the snarling. Even her best friends are starting to wonder what's going on with her. But this is only the beginning. Sara's about to find out her life was meant for so much more. And Zach's about to find true love with the one woman who makes him absolutely insane.

What are you reading on Monday meme #2

One person's journey through a world of books has taken over the hosting of the weekly book meme that have bloggers posting about what they are reading on any given Monday. This is my second post.  Just use the link if you want to be part of the fun!

This is the book I am reading at the moment.  I have read a lot of reviews and everyone seem to agree that it is a great book but I am finding it very hard to get into.  I have read the first chapter last week and have not been able to pick it up again.

Skins for Kindles

Did you know that you could get "skins" for your kindle - it's for pleasure and protection :) Here is my favourite from DecalGirl.

Irish Thoroughbred by Nora Roberts

Irish Thoroughbred (Irish Hearts #1) (Silhouette Romance #81) Irish Thoroughbred by Nora Roberts

What a cute little story that I was able to finish in a few hours. I just love a story where there is no third romantic character to butt into the relationship. Okay, there was one but she had about a paragraph in the book :)
