REVIEW: Paging Doctor Wolf by Rebecca Royce

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:As a trauma surgeon, Dallas is too busy to date, so he signs up with 1Night Stand, but his plans are derailed by a savage wolf attack. Still recovering, he agrees to meet with the woman Madame Eve found for him anyway. Werewolf Cara is disappointed when her date is cancelled at the last minute, but finds out a few weeks later why. She agrees to meet with him to help him to help him through all the changes he’s experiencing. Running out of time, they each meet with their own ideas, never realizing what Madame Eve really had in mind.
Thoughts:Rebecca Royce certainly has a way with writing werewolves. She’s got plenty of world building in such a short time that catches anyone not familiar with her work up without any confusion. You can tell there have been other stories prior to this one, but it doesn’t hurt at all if you’ve not already read them, though it does peak your interest enough to…

I'm sharing my review of Cover Him with Darkness today. Happy reading!
*****************************
Summary:In rural Italy, a priest keeps a dark secret beneath his chapel — a prisoner. Only the elder holy man knows who this prisoner is and even the priest does not know how long he has been there — hundreds of years, perhaps, or even longer. His fear is that anyone in his parish would ever come in contact with his mysterious and unholy charge. But what happens is even worse than he could have imagined. His lovely young daughter, whose innocence and devotion to god he prizes over all else, trails her father into the cavern and catches a glimpse of the prisoner, a beautiful being like the most handsome of men and yet not. She looks in his eyes and sees pain and wisdom and eternity. Unable to keep away from this silent creature chained to an altar stone, she lives in fear that her father will catch her. One day he does and sends her off to America to be raised by her aunt in Boston…

LUNG CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Image
As an asthmatic, I’ve had my share of lung related difficulties.  Thankfully though, I’ve never had lung cancer or known anyone personally who has.  I am, however, that much more sympathetic to the plight.  So when Heather Von St. James emailed me and asked if I’d help spread awareness by sharing a little of her story and some helpful information, I agreed.


Heather was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, a highly aggressive cancer most commonly attacking the lining of the lungs, as an adult, but learned it was caused by wearing her dad’s jacket to do outdoor chores as a child.  How, you ask?  It was covered in asbestos fibers.  I was skeptical that a person would track the cause to something so specifically random, until I learned that Mesothelioma has exactly one known cause: exposure to asbestos.  Asbestos still isn’t banned in the US.  So while it’s not widely used anymore, it’s still important to know the risk factors and signs associated with lung cancer.
General risk factors for lung can…
