Why not curl up with a good book and a cup of Green Mountain Coffee. Doing a BzzCampaign being a BzzAgent I got to try Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Certified K-Cups for my Keurig. This coffee has a bold taste to it so for me it was good to wake me up and/or keep me awake so I can read. So if you like a coffee with a bold taste this is for you. I myself couldn't drink it all the time but once a day I possibly could. But I am one that doesn't like the bold or strong coffee. So if you have a chance to have a cup of coffee why not try Fair Trade Certified K Cups by Green Mountain Coffee.

Hi, my name is Mary, S.D. Mary is actually a pen name and it derives from my real name. I am 29 years old, married to a wonderful and very handsome man and I live in a small country in Europe.
I work in advertising and I love it. Besides writing I also love cooking and reading, of course, and lately I enjoy swimming, so that is my health hobby.
Writing has always been a passion and up until recently I wrote several essays in my native language. So, if you feel there are words or phrases that don’t seem like the usual writing, it’s because English is not my native language.
Smoke is the first erotica book I have ever written and is part of a trilogy, the Beyond Trilogy. It follows the life of Claire and Sebastian and tells their story from a dual point of view.
That being said, I hope everyone will enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I look forward to any comments or suggestions on my blog:

BOOK BLAST~~ OUT OF TUNE by Michelle D. Argyle

Twenty-year-old Maggie Roads’ parents are legendary in the country music world. She wants nothing more than to follow their example, but the limelight is not reserved for singers who cannot carry a tune, let alone keep a rhythm.
When her parents tell her they are getting divorced, Maggie decides it’s time to leave home and take her future into her own hands. Moving in with Cole, her best friend and sometimes boyfriend might not be the best of ideas, but she has to start somewhere. 
Their off-and-on romance gets even more complicated when Maggie crushes on her new voice teacher, Nathan, who unlocks her stunning potential. 
A sensational music career of her own is finally within reach, but Maggie might need more than perfect pitch to find what she is really looking for.
Cole’s steady beat on the drum relaxed her. She could feel his eyes on her as she played, but she did not turn around. He would never know what this meant to her. She had wanted and dreaded this moment forever. She could only imagine what tomorrow would be like, with an audience full of strangers.
She closed her eyes as the music flowed into her. Iza came in on her fiddle, her notes weaving in and out like bright threads in a tapestry. Justin started singing the first lines and she tapped her foot, counting like Nathan had taught her. “Every beat is a physical thing,” he had said. “See the music, feel it, just like you’ve done your whole life. Pearls on a string—let each one slide through your fingers. Measured.”
Mandolin line. Then the bass started. Maggie’s turn.
When she came in, her voice was louder and stronger than it had ever been. Justin’s voice filled her up like honey. She swam through it, adding her own to his. Maybe he was a womanizer and constantly looking at her like, he wanted to get her in bed, but he was an amazing singer. They smiled at each other as they melted into the song.
She had never been inside music like this before. The stage lights sparkled in her eyes and she understood for the first time in her life why musicians put up with all that travelling and recording, and the stressful nights like when her mom was puking her guts out with the flu—the real flu—but had to go on stage in five minutes. Maggie remembered her smiling as she wiped her mouth and shrugged. “It’s part of the singin’ life, hon. We don’t always get breaks when we need them.” She had patted Maggie on her twelve-year-old head and squared her shoulders as her makeup artist dusted some powder over her pale cheeks. Then she had left for the stage in a flutter of sequins and curls.

OUT OF THE BOX AWAKENING by Jennifer Theriot

Out of the Box Awakening Blog Tour Banner


Olivia is a good woman, a good mother, a good wife. She’s got it made. She doesn’t want anything to change. Of course, it does... Swept from her perfect paper-doll life in Houston, Olivia finds herself in Chicago, alone, betrayed, and far from home. Soon everything she thought she knew about herself and her life will be challenged. She has only courage, love, and her passion for music to carry her through the maelstrom—or draw her further in. Ash is the man who has everything—everything except healing from the losses of a lifetime. His only peace lies in the sweet flow of music pouring from his guitar. What happens when the married woman and the handsome widower are thrown together by fate? Out of the Box Awakening is a story of shared passion and shared joy. Jennifer Theriot has written a compelling book about what happens when two people find new life and new love for themselves and for those around them. Meet the Author IMG_3201Jennifer Theriot hails from the Great State of Texas. She is a career woman, working as CFO of a Texas based real estate investment firm, while happily living with her husband. Working in her capacity as CFO, she felt something was missing and discovered her passion for writing novels – mostly at night and on weekends. In her limited spare time Jennifer enjoys being outdoors; preferably somewhere on a beach curled up with a good book! Spending time with family and friends, watching a baseball game and enjoying a good bottle of wine are usually on her to-do lists. Jennifer is also ‘MiMi’ to two beautiful grandchildren and a mom to three grown children, all of whom she adores. Theriot is an admitted music junkie, loving every type of music, which takes up most of the memory on her iPhone. She listens to music from sun up to sun down and her love of music is reflected a great deal in her books. Jennifer took a chance that there could be an interest in romance with middle aged couples who are finding themselves at a crossroads and wrote her debut novel Out of the Box Awakening, which centers on the hope of finding happiness and passion through unexpected heartache. It emphasizes the need for family and friends as Jennifer has learned in her own life. The book has been described as "Mature Sexy" by one reviewer. Jennifer is currently working on her second book, Out of the Box Regifted, and she has books 3 and 4 of the series in the works. Jennifer also has plans to co-write a new series, with a good friend, who shares her same passion for a good romance novel in the near future. Social Links

 Alissa Sullivan has got it made -- a supportive, loving family, a cause she believes in, and her new boyfriend. With her best friend Kat at her side, she was counting the days until the end of high school when they could go away to college together. Then she met Scott, a man who wouldn't touch her but would turn her life upside-down. 
Katherine Horne is perfectly content being in the background. All she wants is to graduate and get out of the town she's grown to loathe. She'd do anything to avoid confrontation but when she finds herself in increasingly humiliating situations, she realizes some things can't be ignored. Especially when it comes to bullying. 
With their carefully planned futures unraveling, Kat and Alissa will come to realize the bond of their friendship will be tested... and might not make it through intact.

This is book 1 in a 3 part series.

BABY SANTA by M. Maitland DeLand

Baby SantaBaby Santa by M. Maitland DeLand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This has to be one of the cutest and most colorful Christmas children's book ever. The pictures were so big and colorful that my granddaughter was able to make out the colors and part of the pictures and she is visually impaired. The story about Baby Santa and how he opened all the presents and when it came time to deliver on Christmas Eve they ran into a problem. Baby Santa takes after his dad cause he knew what present was what and who they were for even after they were wrapped again and no name tags got put on the presents. I so recommend this book for children of ALL ages.

Beautiful Chances (Beautiful, #1)Beautiful Chances by Alicia Rae
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a copy for an honest review. Lilly ran away from the world. After a car accident that left Lilly alone she didn't want to be near anyone. She has only 2 friends one a male who works at a restaurant and one female. Lilly never had a relationship with any man until Kyle walks into her life. Though out the book which is well written and keeps you going Alicia Rae is having Lilly face her demons. Which also to me is telling her readers they need to do the same. Where Beautiful Chances ends the next book My Beautiful begins and I mean it. You don't see many books pick up at the same spot the other one had left off. I can't wait to finish reading My Beautiful. Don't bury your demons or think you will forever cause one day you will have to face them.
