Doggone Blog Hop

Welcome. We love our dogs and we’ve come together to support our favorite animal charity! Thanks for joining us. FYI, June 21st is Take Your Dog to Work Day and National Dog Party Day.

I’ll be donating a dollar ($1.00) for each comment to the Texas Humane Heroes, a no-kill shelter in Leander, TX.

One thing, among many, I love about my dog Dakota a border collie mix, is the unconditional love he gives me. A year ago this past April I rescued him from a kill shelter in Bristol, CT and immediately a bond was formed between us.

When I got him he was underweight, had bad teeth and hadn’t been fixed. Now he’s at his proper weight, his mouth is healed and I got him, as any good dog owner would, neutered.

When we were living in CT we had to deal with leash laws but now here in TX he can be a dog. I let him run around outside, mostly unsupervised, on his own. Finally he’s become what he truly is, a real dog who knows how to have fun.

Even when I leave him home to do to town, don’t forget here in TX people get vicious if they see a dog left alone in a car, he might whine or so I’m told then goes to sleep. But, when I get home forget it, he’s all over me.

I’ve even named my muse after him, now if that isn’t love I don’t know what is.

Besides hanging out in his house, a wire crate, he loves lying on the floor with his head under the bed. I guess if he can’t see me then I can see him. Go figure.

Besides donating to the SPCA I’ll give to one commenter an eBook copy of my newest release, Ice Queen. Sorry but there aren’t any dogs in the story. Well, yeah if you consider what Ronny, Jessica Sales boyfriend does, you might consider him a dog.


Military grade weaponry is disappearing from bases all over the world, only to end up in the hands of terrorists and dictators.

Governments are helpless as the threats of being overthrown mount. As a last resort the IceQueen_SMworld leaders turn to The Consortium to bring the biggest arms dealer to justice. They set Special Operative Jessica Sale on the trail of Justin Grey.

Portraying herself as the go to person when a buyer is looking for quantity and quality Jessica easily instills herself into his organization.

Buried deep within the mountains of Wyoming she finds her target and something she didn’t expect-a traitor in the guise of her boyfriend.

With personal feelings aside she charges ahead with the mission. Flying to New York Jessica arranges for monies to be transferred and weapons shipped. Pleased with her work he invites Jessica back to Wyoming except he never makes it home.
