#ProductReview Ancient Greek Remedy Oil 2

The smell of this product, I wasn't too sure about at first. I mean, it's nothing terrible - it was just different to me.

We are using this on my daughter's acne (twice a day) - since we've just started using it and it's recommended for a minimum of 3 months, we're still just watching. However, we have already noticed her skin isn't as oily.

We're also using it on her split ends (she's colored her hair for the last few years as well as a daily straightening iron). It's already showing improvement as well.

There are a number of uses for this product for your skin and hair. I am absolutely loving it because it is 100% pure. I've been slowly working to everything pure, natural, and fresh (since I have a ranch, it's pricey, but doable). This is just one of the new products that I have discovered to help get us one step closer to the "clean" lifestyle we are trying to achieve.

As you can see, there is an expiration date - but its definitely long enough to fully use the product.

Since I'm solar and wind powered, I'm always looking for neat decorating ideas that don't pull a whole lot of my power (I have a washer, dryer, and fridge - to name a few - that do that very well already).

You can use these almost anywhere. I had them on my headboard around the mirrors and doors until I left for a funeral. At that point, my girls moved them into their room around the closet.

The really great thing about these is that there's a remote and you can set a timer for them. Totally a blessing when you don't plug into the local electric grid.

There are so many ways these can be used. On Amazon, it mentions for weddings - One of the images shows them put into a glass - looks beautiful. You can also use them on beds and around closets as we did. I had also thought they'd look great around my entertainment center. It's a soft light, so there really are many functions.

First Chapter: A Gentleman's Surrender

, by Mystee

Historical Romance
Date Published: January 1, 2016

Call her a romantic—or a fool, Lady Monique Cathdon is determined to marry for love. After watching her parents tolerate an arranged betrothal, life seems too short to be wasted on keeping up appearances.

After all, what’s the point of having a heart if one refuses to follow it?

With a smile the devil himself might be proud of, James Stanton is not what her mother would call “a matrimonial prospect”. Still, there’s something about the young man that sends Lady Monique’s heart thumping around her chest, and silences her voice of reason.

Unfortunately for Lady Monique, the stakes are high, and young ladies of the ton make for very poor gamblers. Especially when James Stanton is on the hunt for revenge, and won’t let an innocent woman—or his own passionate desires—get in the way of righting past wrongs.


June, 1804

James Stanton shifted on his feet and struggled to curb his growing agitation. Tinkles of laughter and the strains of violin filled the ballroom, but he ignored the distractions. He was impatient to meet Lady Monique.
Stanton scanned the crowd once again before sighing and returning his attention to his cousin and the attractive women chatting at them. The endless pleasantries and banal conversation was beginning to grate on his nerves.
The woman to his left, whose name he could not recall, waved her fan impatiently. “It’s unforgivably vulgar for Lady Monique to be so late and keep her guests waiting.”
Only half listening, Stanton envisioned her sporting cat’s claws and a set of twitching whiskers. The image bolstered his fading smile.
“Perhaps Lady Monique is feeling poorly,” said another, more charitable, woman.
The first sniffed at the comment. “Then she should have apologized to her guests and bid them begin without her.”
The speculation droned on as to the cause of Lady Monique’s absence. Stanton didn’t give a fig why the hostess’s unmarried daughter had yet to appear and open the dances. All he wanted was an introduction to the damn woman so he could take her measure. After all, she would play a key role in his quest for revenge.
Mercifully, someone took pity on them and finally initiated the first set of dances and Stanton breathed a sigh of relief. Music filled the expansive room and dancers floated across the floor, a rainbow of color in full dress. Their balletic movements were a testament to their rank and privilege, which only served to amplify Stanton’s irritation. Gazing at the dancers again, Stanton wished he was anywhere else. Unfortunately, his plan could not proceed without this step.
He became aware of a ripple of whispers and eyes darting toward the grand hallway behind him. Turning to see what had riveted the attention of those around him, Stanton’s eyes met those of an elegant woman. Lady Monique, he presumed. His quarry had arrived.

From the moment she could put pen to paper, Mariel Grey knew she wanted to be a writer. Like all good adventures however, it didn’t happen overnight; it was after several decades of working in litigation that the desire to create dramatic worlds and characters became too great to ignore. Her first foray into historical romance, Surrender of Trust, explored the grime and glamour of regency horse racing, following the determined but impoverished Lucy Goodwin and upright Lord Chalifour. Her second novel, A Gentleman’s Surrender, released January 1, 2016 introduces the innocent Lady Monique and tortured Mr. Stanton, both struggling to find love in a world filled with deceit.
Though entirely at home in the ballrooms and street alleys of London past, Mariel Grey’s is currently working on  a contemporary story set in Florida, a landscape dear to the author’s heart. When she isn’t conjuring words on her computer screen, Grey can be found on the water fishing, snorkeling, and enjoying the incredible natural beauty of her home.
Mariel has a wonderful husband (the hero of her own romantic story) as well as a mischievous cat (who seems happy to play the role of villain). In addition to being a dutiful wife and animal wrangler, Mariel is a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Ancient City Romance Authors chapter.

#ShoutOutSaturday #cowboy The Rebel Cowboy's Quadruplets by Tina Leonard

, by Mystee


Justin Morant can't believe he answered an online dating ad! Turns out, beautiful Mackenzie Hawthorne is looking for a ranch foreman, not a husband. Good thing, because marriage isn't in the injured bull rider's future. Justin is happy to take up the cause of saving the Hanging H ranch—and then there's the bonus of playing stand-in father to the sexy single mom's four angelic newborns.

Mackenzie doesn't know what miracle brought Justin to Bridesmaids Creek, Texas, but she'd be a fool to fall for the hunky cowboy who wears his rebel status like a badge of honor. Justin's a natural with her daughters and a whiz at ranching…yet one day she knows he's going to gallop off into the sunset. Unless, of course, the marriage-minded townspeople get their hands on him!

Now enjoy an excerpt:

“You’ve got the strangest look on your face,” Ty said as Justin returned his gaze to Mackenzie. He just couldn’t seem to get enough of looking at her. “I’d say you have indigestion, except you’re smiling.”

Justin relaxed his mouth so the smile would disappear. He had been smiling, because his muscles ached a bit. Like he’d been smiling a long time—watching Mackenzie walk and chatter with some friends who came over to talk to her.

“I’m not smiling, but I may have indigestion.”

Ty snorted. “I see what’s going on here.”

“Do you.” He made the comment as flat as possible. His buddy’s opinion didn’t really matter. Ty had no idea what was going on, because Justin had no idea.

“You’re tired,” Ty said. “Being around those babies and that falling-down farm has worn you out. You better hit the road with me. You’ll be back to your old self in no time.”

“What was my old self?”

Ty put his hat on, prepared to leave, which was fine with Justin. Then he could go back to surreptitiously staring at Mackenzie. “Grumpy, cranky, annoying.”

Justin grunted. “Thought that was you.”

“Not me.” He peered at Justin. “I really hope this wasn’t too much for you, old buddy. I didn’t mean to bring you down. Figured some time in a small town with a real job would do you good.”

Justin put his hat on, too, because if he didn’t get out of there, people were going to notice that he couldn’t stop staring at his beautiful boss. “That’s what you get for thinking. See you at the house. Don’t get there too soon. I’m taking the boss lady shopping.”

Ty stared at him, stunned. “What’s happened to you?” he whispered. “You’re a shadow of your former self!”

Well, that was a question he didn’t care to ponder too much. Mackenzie came to stand beside him, smiling up into his face, and his poor stupid heart felt like it took the final dive into his stomach.

What had happened to him indeed.

Mackenzie and four babies were happening to him, and they were going to require a great deal of consideration. This was a bad idea, this tiny woman with the big eyes and her sweet family. A very bad idea, because he wasn’t a family man; he wasn’t a staying man.

“You ready?” he asked Mackenzie, and she nodded.

“If you’re not going to chicken out,” she teased.

Oh, he might. He was thinking about it. Thinking about it hard.

But something told him he probably wouldn’t.

#ShoutOutSaturday #Cowboy Last of the Red Hot Cowboys by Tina Leonard

, by Mystee


A sexy cowgirl gives a rugged Texas loner the ride of his life in USA Today bestselling author Tina Leonard’s seductive new series.

Ava Buchanan dreams of a career on the rodeo circuit. Winning a spot on a one-of-a-kind team would be her ticket to the life she’s always wanted. Ava won’t let anyone stand in her way—not even a stubborn cowboy whose slow-molasses smile and red-hot swagger set her senses aflame . . . and whose talents as a trainer could make her a star. Rodeo might be a man’s game, but Ava knows the right woman’s touch can tame the wildest heart.

Trace Carter believes his mayor’s plan to raise the town’s profile has disaster written all over it, and he won’t allow the Hell’s Outlaws Training Center to be dragged into the fiasco. Yet watching Ava’s delectable body on horseback proves too much of a temptation, and his fantasies stray to her riding skills outside the arena. Soon Trace is fighting like hell to rein in his unbridled desire for the petite brunette before it becomes a passion hotter than the Texas sun.



“It doesn’t matter,” Trace said, glancing over at Ava.  “Don’t let the Horsemen guilt you.  They’re working an angle, and it’s always a crooked one.”

 “That makes no sense.”  Ava gave him a look of disgust, which he intercepted with good humor.  He was just happy to have her in his truck.  Frankly, she’d come with him more easily than he’d thought she would.  Especially after he’d overheard Fallon ask her out.

That alone had caused Trace to shift his gears.  He hadn’t really planned on dragging Ava off.  The plan had been to talk rationally to her, help her put her horse in the barn.  Hell, he hadn’t had a plan.

Until he’d heard Fallon make his boneheaded offer—and split-second, Trace had known that just couldn’t stand.

“It makes sense to me.  You don’t want to hang out with them, Ava.  Trust me.”

“I don’t know if I trust you at all.  You seem shadier than they do.”

He shook his head.  “Just some friendly advice.  You don’t know the pitfalls of Hell.  Friends help each other out.”

“Do they?”

He felt her glare and grinned.  Such a sweet, sexy body, so much sass.  “Last I checked, yes."

“You need to sell your idea to Judy.  Not me.”

“You let me handle Judy.”

“Fine.”  She waved her hand dismissively.

“You don’t really like me much, do you?”

Ava looked at him, her dark-green eyes gazing at him curiously.  “You’re arrogant and short-tempered.  You didn’t want to give us a shot in the first place, and this is the second time you’ve put me in your truck to twist my arm.  Did I miss what I’m supposed to like?”

“Now that you put it like that, I realize I haven’t given you much to be impressed with at all.  Let me fix this snag.”

“Go right ahead.”

He turned his truck toward his barns to put her horse away.  “If I train you, you’ll be a helluva rider.”

“I’m a helluva rider now.”

“Yeah, but when I get done with you, you’ll be a badass helluva rider.”

“Why?  Why are you suddenly so motivated?”

He laughed, parked the truck.  “Maybe I hate to see a nice girl getting taken advantage of by the Horsemen.”

“I’m not being taken advantage of.”

“I meant Judy.”  He grinned, enjoying himself.

“It doesn’t matter.  You’re not that kind of guy.”

“Unselfish?  Sure I am.”  He went around to open her door.

She slid out of the truck.  “Considerate.  You’re not considerate enough to try to help us out.  Your ego may be involved because you’re competitive.  But not considerate or unselfish.”

He grabbed her hand, turned her to face him.  She’d been sassing him with those pink lips for a few days now, and a man could only take so much.

He kissed her, long and slow and sweet, taking his time since she didn’t protest.  She felt better than he remembered, even in his wildest fantasies, which he’d had plenty of concerning her.  He was dying to move his hands to her waist, circle it, palm her sexy fanny.  Told himself it was too fast, and too fast never got a man anywhere.

Her lips moved under his, returning his kiss, surprising him.  Had she just moved a fraction closer?  She seemed to melt against him, surrendering, and Trace’s world spun at all the magical wonder suddenly opening to him.

Somewhere a truck door slammed.  Ava gasped, moved away from him.  Stared at him, blinking, then silently went to unload her horse.

He followed, helping her unlock the trailer.  She unloaded Mack, walking him to the barn.

“Go away,” she told Trace.

That was it?  He’d given her a kiss to melt the hardest heart, and she was telling him to drop dead?  “Hey,” he said, “don’t freak out.”

“Do I look freaked out?”  She walked her horse inside the barn, checked that Mack had fresh, cool water and plenty of fresh hay.  “This is the face of annoyed.”

That wasn’t a woman’s typical response to his kissing.  “I’m sorry.  I jumped the gun.”

“You jumped more than the gun, buster.”  She put her horse into a stall, checked the hay, filled the water, brushed past him.

He followed her as she sashayed toward her own beat-up blue truck she’d driven from Virginia.  “Ava.”

“What?”  She moved a mountain of paper and horse stuff from the front seat to the back.

“Can you forget that happened?”

“Easily.”  She got in her truck, switched the engine on, rolled down the window.  “I already have.”

He jumped back as she peeled away, shredding his gravel drive.  Trace grinned.

She might try to forget, but that kiss was going to last him a while.

It had to.  He wasn’t touching the lady again—she was going to have to make the next move.

#ShoutOutSaturday #Cowboy The Cowboy's E-Mail Order Bride by Cora Seton

, by Mystee


Ethan Cruz should be mending fences on his Montana ranch, but instead he's driving to the Chance Creek, Montana, airport - to pick up the bride he didn't know he had. This latest salvo in his ongoing practical joke battle with his best friend, Rob Matheson, has gone too far, and Ethan plans to send his "bride" right back home, then get busy plotting his revenge. One look at Autumn Leeds changes his mind, however. Perhaps he needs a bride, after all. A breathtakingly beautiful city bride.

Autumn Leeds needs a story - fast - or she's going to lose her lucrative contract with CityPretty Magazine, so when she sees the crazy video plea for a modern mail-order bride for a cowboy, it sounds like the story of the century. Making a video of her own, she casts herself as the perfect mail-order bride for a rancher, but when she finally reaches Montana, she's surprised to find Ethan's the perfect cowboy husband-to-be. Against her better judgment, her plan to keep her handsome groom at arm's length disintegrates into a night of passion spent in his arms.

Ethan knows he can't keep playing this game - he has to come clean with Autumn and tell her the truth; about the practical joke and about the state of his ranch. He's about to lose it all because of the debts his mother racked up before his parents' deaths. Now his sister, Claire, wants to sell the ranch and collect what little money they can. He'll be out of a home and a job, and in no shape to support the bride he desperately wants to marry, after all.

Autumn's in bigger trouble than ever. Not only has she fallen in love with the subject of her expose - she might be carrying his child. If she doesn't write this article and secure her contract for another year, she'll lose everything - her career, her apartment, and more importantly, her family's approval. The only alternative is to stay and marry Ethan. But how can she trust a man she's just met when she knows too well that men always let you down?

Can a love based on lies last?

Review: I've been waiting months for this. I was so thrilled when I got the update in my inbox that it was available and at a special price for a limited time. I went right to grab it. I did take two days to read it, even though it wasn't a full length novel. Why? Because I didn't want to see it end. 

I'm rarely so attached to the characters in a book. But Ms. Levine wraps me up each time. You feel like you know each one, their struggles...

I do hate to have any of the books end. For the record, I have read the first three full novels in this series. Although they could each stand alone, I really do advise reading them in order. Then you get to really know the characters.

Anyway, it was time for Kit and Ivy to get married. The reunion with her parents made it emotional as did the fact that Kit knew Ivy really needed this - even though she didn't know it. I've always loved strong men, and sometimes you just have to let them take over.

What I didn't like (which usually never comes out of my mouth on a Red Team book) is Kit crying. I guess I'm too old school in thought to have men shedding any wetness onto their face.

Of course, I also have to take this moment and pout about Owen. Please ANYONE bu Selena lol. (Nevermind that I've fully volunteered myself for the position lol.)

In the end, this is another MUST read from Ms. Levine.

Review: Ok so. I must again say- cowboy hat on the cover? Ahh well. That's ok.
This time we get to focus on Ty, although all the guys are still around. We also meet Kit's former girlfriend and the daughter he's never met. As with the first book (Rocco's), I feel a connection to the characters and their devotion to each other (If only we could all find friends as dedicated.). 
Ty's story is another that tells of tremendous abuse. (Remember, Rocco had PTSD?). His was from his child/teen years. Eden is more than willing to accept and try to help him release the past.
As with book 1, there's suspense and action. There's still the on going war and keeping the town and it's law enforcement safe. And Ms. Levine's made Val an absolute refreshing character in this one (wonder if she'll give me Val in an upcoming book - well, since Kelan seems to be taken?).
Another must read. I'm off to go purchase book 3 - Honor Unraveled.

 July 27, 2013
Love Isn't a Battle...

Kit Bolanger, ex-spec ops soldier, has followed the trail of an international drug lord back to his childhood town, the one place he swore never to return. He and his team of terrorist hunters are the only thing standing between the town's residents and the evil threatening them. It doesn't help to know that she's here--the woman who betrayed his trust and shredded his heart.

...It's a War and He's Offering No Quarter

Deciding to put roots down, Ivy Banks has brought her daughter home to the sleepy ranching community of Wolf Creek Bend, Wyoming--the one place where she was certain she'd never run into her high school flame. But he's back, fighting a global enemy and homegrown terrorists in a hidden war that puts their lives and their hearts in jeopardy. He was bad news in high school, and he's even worse news now.

Surrendering to him is not an option...but it's the only thing he'll accept.

Rating: 5/5

Review: Well, this is book 3 in the series (if you click the author name in the tags down below, it will take you to the first two book reviews). This is also the last one in the series until 2014 :( 
In this one, we learn more about Kit (Mandy's brother - and remember; Mandy is also Rocco's girlfriend). He and Ivy have loved one another for years, but her fear of losing him again makes her not want to risk it.
As with the other books, Kit has a trouble. His, like Ty's, was during his childhood and teen years, though very different from what Ty experienced. Once again, you feel for the characters and their struggles. Their fear of stepping into something scarier than the place they already hold.
Once again, Ms. Levine has a winner in this one.
Although, I do have to say, since a girl can change her mind, (previously I'd said I'd love to steal Val) - I'm changing that. After this book, val sort of annoyed me - his charm kind of left me. I'll steal Max - or maybe even Owen instead. :)

Book Review: Mercy by B.J. Daniels

, by Mystee

*Book & Details provided by Net Galley in exchange for honest review.*


The hunt for a killer leads to a battle between justice and desire 

For U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid, there's the law…and then there's his law. When the two don't agree, he always trusts his instincts. A killing spree has gripped the Northwest, showing a strange connection that only he sees, and now the old rules of justice no longer apply. Forced to turn rogue, he goes deep undercover to track his mysterious female suspect to a quiet, unassuming café in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth, Montana. 

But encountering Callie Westfield complicates his mission in ways he never expected. As suspicious as she seems, her fragile beauty and sexy charm get to Rourke. Then the gory crimes begin ANEW. With his heart suddenly at war with his instincts, he has only two options. Either turn Callie over to the law, or put everything—including his badge and his life—on the line to protect her.

My Thoughts:

This was one of the best suspense books I've read in a while. It kept me questioning and turning the pages. Of course, the fact that Rourke is now a marshal helped too (I mean, who doesn't love a hot marshal?).

Add rogue marshal and you have a winner. Right?

You are captured into this story from the beginning. There are a lot of characters, but it works. Character and story development are absolutely wonderful.

This book is part of a series, which I have not read, but can stand alone. I will say I will be picking up any and every book by B.J. Daniels that I can get my hands on now. Make sure you have the time to read this one because you won't want to put it down.

Book Review: Reckless For Cowboy (Stampede Sizzlers) by Daire St. Denis ( #cowboy #romance #erotic )

, by Mystee

Book Description

 November 12, 2013
"You ever play 'dare' with a cowboy before, sweetheart?"

When it comes to the Calgary Stampede, Brooke Hamilton has one piece of advice...stay away from cowboys!

Too bad she can't follow it herself. You'd think it'd be easy, considering how badly she's been burned. But the minute she meets Cooper Hays, saddle bronc rider and rodeo hotshot, her reckless heart falls hard and fast.

Brooke knows it's all a game to Cooper. Everything's a game to him. Risking his life on the back of a wild animal. Winning impossible dares. Whisking her off on the best dates ever. The man knows exactly how to shock and surprise her, taking her places she's never been before and making her feel things she's never felt before.

But Brooke's counting down the days to the end of Stampede--to the moment when Cooper gets what he wants and walks out of her life. Proving to her, once again, her reckless heart should not be trusted.

WARNING: Like the hot dude on the cover, this is a hot read intended for a mature audience. Beware of scorching sex scenes with explicit language.

Review: I'll admit I'm on a cowboy kick. I'm not sure why, but I've been grabbing up anything that looks like it might have one in it.
This was a quick read for me. There's some tension, some over thinking of the situation because of the past. It was also a hot read. Cooper was funny, especially he and Denny (the gay bartender. I can't tell you more, you'll just hav eto read it).
My biggest issue with the quickness of the "I love you." In some books, it seems to fit when they pull the words so soon, but for me, in this one, it didn't seem to fit. Nonetheless, a sizzling book for a quick read. You'll flip through the pages and not even realize you're already on the last one.

Book Review: The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris

, by Mystee

Book Description

 January 15, 2010
He was going to lose the house and everything in it.

The rare pleasure of a bath, the copper pots hanging above the kitchen island, his family-again he would

lose his family. He stood inside the house and took stock. Everything in it had been taken for granted. How had that happened again? He had promised himself not to take anything for granted and now he couldn't recall the moment that promise had given way to the everyday.

Tim Farnsworth is a handsome, healthy man, aging with the grace of a matinee idol. His wife Jane still loves him, and for all its quiet trials, their marriage is still stronger than most. Despite long hours at the office, he remains passionate about his work, and his partnership at a prestigious Manhattan law firm means that the work he does is important. And, even as his daughter Becka retreats behind her guitar, her dreadlocks and her puppy fat, he offers her every one of a father's honest lies about her being the most beautiful girl in the world.

He loves his wife, his family, his work, his home. He loves his kitchen. And then one day he stands up and walks out. And keeps walking.

THE UNNAMED is a dazzling novel about a marriage and a family and the unseen forces of nature and desire that seem to threaten them both. It is the heartbreaking story of a life taken for granted and what happens when that life is abruptly and irrevocably taken away.

Review: This is a pretty original idea for book. This book brings to light what could possibly happen, along with the struggles involved, in being married to {having a family member within your home} that has an almost compulsive disorder. 
Tim will just walk. He gets compelled to start walking and he leaves everything and cuts off contact with everyone to do just that. It can be hours or even weeks. Then comes the call to pick him up and who can ever be certain as to where his pickup will be. The weather doesn't affect this thought to simply just walk. 
Joshua explores the mind and human limitations as well as a search for a cure through this book. 
I found my brain working a lot on this one for some reason. So, I'd recommend this for one of those times that you're in the mood for a thought provoking read.
