Books on my Nightstand – #9

So just did a review of my last list, and I did make some headway, but really only managed to add a few more books to my list. Not to mention, a couple of the books I read took cuts and weasled their way onto the top of the list before I could say no! But…. wow! So good!

I read Circe by Madeline Miller, and she has just made another fan! Loved her take on the life of the Goddess of Witchcraft! Highly recommend if you are into Mythology! I also finished books by Dana Nussio and Elizabeth Heiter, both with Harlequin and just perfect for a weekend read. Here are the blurbs:

In the wilds of Alaska, grieving former marine Colter Hayes shuts out the world…until he and his combat tracker dog become Kensie Morgan’s last hope of finding her long-missing sister. The improbable mission starts to rekindle Colter’s desire to rejoin the world—while saving Kensie from a killer unsettles his heart. Can they find all they are searching for before it’s too late?

Elizabeth Heiter – K-9 Defense

State Trooper Kelly Roberts joins Special Agent Tony Lazzaro’s task force, determined to bring down a cybercriminal preying on young victims. Solving this case is a chance for redemption. If Kelly catches the killer, she’ll be one step closer to solving her best friend’s abduction. She never expects to fall for Tony. But trusting him means risking everything she holds dear…

Dana Nussio – Her Dark Web Defender

I have The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams on my #TBR pile, and after I get through a couple of beta reads I have promised, I will be diving into that! Can’t wait! I have heard a lot of great things about it!

But before I dive into some recreational reads, I do have a little bit of research to finish before completing my series. I was lucky enough to hear Floyd Clown Sr. and William B. Matson speak at the Ann Arbor Library last year, and I will be reading their book which gives a personal account of Crazy Horse’s life and legacy. One of the scenes in the final book of my series, takes place at the Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota, and while I don’t go into the history of Crazy Horse in particular, I was inspired to learn more about the Lakota culture.

Floyd Clow, Doug War Eagle, and Don Red Thunder, representatives of the Crazy Horse family, via writer William B. Matson, reveal family stories that illustrate the famous leader’s life and death in ways that will alter the commonly held knowledge of the Lakota Warrior. It is time that this rich source of oral history, told in a Native American voice, is heard.

What books do you have on your TBR pile right now? I would love to know! Drop me a line anytime at or comment on any of my social media links which you can find here.

If you are looking for a book to add to your TBR pile, you can follow this link to a promotion I am part of in February! It starts on the 1st and runs through the entire month, so please be sure to check it out if you like Paranormal, Fantasy or Sci-Fi Romance. There are some great looking books on there, so you won’t want to miss it! I may be doing some shopping myself, so perhaps some of those will be on my next Nightstand post!

Happy reading! XO
