Series: Master At Arms #3
Available: Barnes & Noble / Amazon

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four war zones, but now finds himself running from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a twenty-five year age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't a little girl anymore—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Karla Paxton fell in love with Adam when she was a sixteen-year-old runaway and he rescued her. Now, nine years later, she's determined to make Adam see her as a woman. But their age difference is only part of the problem. Adam has been a guardian and protector for lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally …

SUMMARY: When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four…

Tuesday Jams

Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Jams, a weekly post hosted here @ Salacious Reads. This is my way to share with you another one of my Wanna share your favorite song or artist, just comment linking back to your site & I'll be sure to stop by.
I've been listening to Melanie Fiona this week...her voice is so soulful and *shivers* the girl can sang...okay!

On her latest album, there is a song called "Bones". Now this album is two parts..she actually explains the reasoning for a specific song on her album...I like that. Well Bones as you can imagine in my the thought of a love so consuming of someone so much, that you just have to get to the core of that person....oh, it's deep!

The last couple of books I've read these past couple of weeks kind of resonate with this song...

What worlds would you move to be with your soulmate?

Painter Tessa Barnum is struggling. Her husband left, she's broke, about to be evicted and has made some serious missteps in her career.
