The Chronicles of Steele: Raven Free Ebook

Chronicles1banner
Human life has value. The poor living in the gutter is as valuable as the rich living in a manor. The scoundrel is no less valuable than the saint. Because of this, every life a reaper takes must be redeemed. Raven has lived by this first tenet since she was trained by her father to become a reaper. But since his death, she’s been spending years redeeming the lives she’s taken. By her count, she’s even and it’s time for that life to end. If she settles down and becomes a wife, she might just feel human again. But on the way to the life she thinks she wants, the baron of New Haven asks her to complete a task which she cannot ignore… Just when Raven decides to give up on her life as an assassin, she’s pulled right back in. The Chronicles of Steele: Raven is a steampunk-inspired fantasy set in an alternate universe.

Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset

Sunset

 

Return to Annie Crow Knoll. . . a place where people come to restore their spirits, heal their pain and reclaim their lives.

Nate Bidwell blamed his mother Annie for his parents' divorce. Buried hurts and resentments between mother and son make Nate reluctant to risk his heart when his childhood friend Beth Ann offers him her own. Instead, he allows himself to fall in love with the fragile and dependent June, and Annie's opposition to their marriage reignites years of unresolved conflict with her only child. Nate swears that he will never return to Annie Crow Knoll, his family home on the Chesapeake Bay. Instead, he opens his dream restaurant in Manhattan and tirelessly works to build his career as a chef.

When near-tragedy strikes their lives, though, Nate is forced to return to the one place he hopes may save his wife: Anne Crow Knoll. There, surrounded by the love and support of his mother, their friend Packard and Beth Ann, Nate and June face their doubts and fears about themselves, their marriage and their future. In the beauty of this Chesapeake community, they find hope and healing.  

Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset will be released on September 14th. . .

Menopause and the Polar Pillow Review and Giveaway

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Menopause and Polar Pillow
 Review and Giveaway
Oh! these are wonderful times...NOT! Night sweats and hot flashes make sleeping an adventure for me and my poor Hubby. Tossing and turning and just plain miserable. I have my air conditioner set at a warm 60 degrees at night. Still there is no relief. 
The makers of Polar Pillow have saved me from sweaty, sleepless nights on the menopause roller coaster. 

I was sent two different products to review. The first was the Polar Pillow. 

Polar Pillow ®

  • Cooling pillow with turbo-cooling pack.
  • Gel layer on top, pocket for cooling pack in center & soft poly-fill on the bottom.
  • Stays cool all night with turbo-cooling pack.
  • Firm level of support is ideal for side-sleepers & good for back sleepers.

The Polar Pillow surprised me. It was heavy but very soft on the outside. A cooling pack came with it. You just put the Turbo Cooling Pack in the fridge until cold and then slip it into the middle of the Polar Pillow. Voila!  My first night sleeping with it was wonderful! I slept through the night and had NO night sweats. I couldn't believe it. It was cool but not so cold that it would have been uncomfortable. I can't say for sure how long it stayed cold...because I SLEPT!


The next product I tried was the Turbo Cooling Pillowcase.

Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase

  • Turn your favorite standard pillow into a cooling pillow with this pillowcase! 
  • Pillowcase fits any standard size pillow (standard pillow not included).
  • Comes with one Turbo-Cooling Pack that fits in the front pocket of the case for cool sleep.
 This is a great product if you want to use your own favorite pillow, but you still would like to have some relief. The Turbo Cooling Pillowcase was so soft to the touch. It also comes with a Turbo Cooling Pack. There is a pocket especially made for the cooling pack. I used this one night while I slept. While this was a great product too, I still liked the Polar Pillow better. And let me tell you why:
The Polar Pillow stays colder longer than the Turbo Cooling Pillowcase. 

Now, I am just greedy, or maybe it's because I have just found the perfect combo for combating hot flashes and night sweats. If you are at war with menopause at night, you have to try both of them at the same time. 

I used the Polar Pillow to rest my head on and the Turbo Cooling Pillowcase on my pillow to hug. Talk about cooling down!!!
These don't have to be used just at night. While I am relaxing, I put my Polar Pillow on my lap. It helps when the hot flashes decide to try and burn me alive. 
You can also use these when you have a sunburn or even when trying to bring down a fever. 

The wonderful people at Polar Pillow have given a chance for one of my lucky readers to win the Polar Pillow AND the Turbo Cooling Pillowcase!
