Blasting About: Phoenix: The Beauty In Between (With #Giveaway)

Bestselling Author of the A Beautiful Series, Alter and the Confidante Trilogy, Lilliana has always loved to read and write, considering it the best form of escapism that the world has to offer. 
Australian born and bred, she writes New Adult Romance revolving around her authentically Aussie characters as well as a biographical trilogy based on an ex-Sydney sex worker, named Angelien. 
Lilliana feels that the world should see Australia for more than just its outback and tries to show characters in more of a city setting. 
When she isn't writing, she wears the hat of 'wife and mother' to her husband and four children. 
Before Lilliana turned to writing, she worked in a variety of industries and studied humanities and communications before transferring to commerce/law at university. 
Originally from Sydney's Western suburbs, she currently lives a fairly quiet life in suburban Melbourne.
Her latest book is the new adult contemporary romance, Phoenix: The Beauty in Between.

S Is For Soup Nazi

Now there is something I haven't done in years.... sledding down the hill in the winter.
I can remember as a kid, it was fun to get wet and cold out on the hill. Now, I'm not so sure my old bones can handle the run, let alone the cold.
So I decided to tell you one of my many talents. It has even dubbed me "The Soup Nazi".




I can make a soup out of just about anything. Whether it's leftovers in the fridge, a recipe or off the cuff with fresh ingredients, I can make a mean soup or stew.
During the colder months it is what we eat more and more. Hearty meals was the soul in the Fall and Winter.

So recently I made a beef vegetable soup in my slow cooker,  and I figured this would be a great chance to give ya'll the recipe.
Ingredients:
1 lb beef, stewed or cut steak ( I prefer buying a steak and cutting myself.)
1 1/2 cups baby carrots
1 1/2 cups green beans, cut
2 large potatoes, peeled and cut
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 can of niblets corn
1 small can of tomato sauce
3 cups…

#Giveaway: The Night Is Forever - Heather Graham

What happened here, on a historic horse ranch outside Nashville, during the Civil War? And what’s happening now?
Olivia Gordon works at the Horse Farm, a facility that assists patients with mental and physical recovery; her specialty is animal therapy. She’s always loved her job, always felt safe…until now.
People are dying, starting with the facility’s founder, whose body is discovered in a ravine on the property—site of a massacre in 1862. And before every death, Liv sees a horse and rider, wearing a soldier’s garb, in the night sky.… Warning? Omen? Or clue?
Liv calls in her cousin Malachi and his Krewe, an FBI unit of paranormal investigators, to discover the truth. New Krewe member Dustin Blake knows they need Liv’s involvement in the case, yet he’s worried about her safety. Because he and Liv quickly become more than colleagues…and he doesn’t want to lose her to the endless night.



New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham has written more than a hundred novels, man…

#Giveaway & Excerpt: Never Desire A Duke - Lily Dalton

A Marriage Beyond Hope

Lady Sophia has long been estranged from her husband, Vane Barwick, the Duke of Claxton, whose rumored list of amorous conquests includes almost every beautiful woman of the ton. Yet a shocking encounter with him in a crowded ballroom-and a single touch-are all it takes to reawaken her furious passion for him. But how can she trust the man who crushed her dreams and took away the one thing she wanted most?

A Love Beyond Reason

Claxton has never forgiven himself for the youthful mistake that ruined his marriage to Sophia. Now, after nearly a year abroad, the reformed rogue vows to win back the only woman he's ever truly loved. He'll do whatever it takes to prove he can be the honorable husband she deserves-and the passionate lover she desires. As the snowdrifts deepen outside their ancestral home, can they rekindle the flame that burned so bright and find a new path to forever?
