Praise for Say No More, Book 3:

“The third Gravediggers contemporary romantic thriller (after Gone to Dust) continues Hart’s winning formula of combining high adventure and espionage with steamy sex...Globetrotting from France to Last Stop, Tex. (home of the Gravediggers), to the British Virgin Islands, Hart’s high-tempo thriller never lets up. Fans will enjoy her employment of the entire Gravedigger team, who sat out much of the last book, as they stay one step ahead of the enemy.”
—Publishers Weekly


“[Say No More] by terrific talent Hart is a caper thriller where the stakes are life and death. Hart has built a compelling world…Each of these books builds on the characters of the previous novels, which adds emotional and psychological depth. With plenty of action, danger and romance, this is a book a romantic suspense fan can really sink their teeth into.”
—RT

About the book:

Return to New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s romantic suspense series, the Gravediggers, with SAY NO MORE, the thrilling game of cat and mouse between a member of the Gravediggers and the brilliant woman hot on his heels.

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families. Sometimes the dead do rise…

Dante Malcolm is a man of refined tastes. He was once a part of Britain’s elite intelligence force, but his double life eventually caught up with him. There was a reason he’d never been able to capture Simon Locke, a notorious thief who always seemed to be one step ahead. Dante was Simon, and eventually his extracurricular activities cost him his life, and he now belongs to the Gravediggers.

Liv Rothschild is a detective inspector with Interpol and the woman responsible for catching M16’s most notorious agent in his final heist—the heist that killed him. But something about his death has never sat right with her, and she’s been haunted by it for months. It was too easy, and Dante Malcolm was too smart to go down that way.

Dante might belong to the Gravediggers, but his heart and soul will always belong to the next job—each one with a bigger payout and more dangerous than the last. The rest of the team doesn’t know about his alter ego, because he made sure the information went missing from his file. So when the job he’s waited his whole life for seems like a possibility, he sneaks out of the country like a thief in the night, only to run into the one woman who’s ever been able to match him in brilliance—and passion—for the job. The problem is they’re standing on opposite sides of the law—and only one of them can walk away with the prize.

Recipe from Gena Showalter! Naughty or Nice Blog Tour Giveaway

Today, I'd like to welcome the Harlequin Naughty or Nice Blog Tour to In the Hammock! I'm featuring a recipe from author Gena Showalter along with a tour-wide giveaway!!



"The Harder You Fall"
by Gena Showalter

Synopsis: 


Find Gena Showalter:


More info on "The Harder You Fall" here:

Bestselling Author Gena Showalter Shares Her Favorite Recipe: Cornbread and Spicy Turkey Stuffing

I found this recipe several years ago and despite protests from my family—too spicy!—decided to give it

a try. I’m so glad I did! The spiciness is tamed by the cream (it’s like winning a bad boy with a heart of

gold…you get the best of both worlds). So go ahead, dim the lights and unbutton your pants. You’re

going to eat way too much. But your taste buds will thank you.



Ingredients for Cornbread:

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 cups stone ground cornmeal

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

4 tbsp white sugar

5 eggs, beaten

6 tbsp butter, melted

3 cups buttermilk



Ingredients for Stuffing:

2 tbsp salt

2 tsp ground white pepper

2 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp onion powder

4 tsp dried oregano

2 tsp dried thyme

6 tsp chopped fresh basil

4 bay leaves

1 cup minced onion

1 cup chopped green onions

1 cup chopped parsley

2 cups chopped red or green bell pepper

2 green chili peppers, chopped

2 tbsp minced garlic

1 cup butter

2 cups chicken broth

1 tbsp hot sauce

7 eggs, beaten

2 cups evaporated milk





Directions for Cornbread:

Preheat oven to 375oF (190oC). Butter a 13 × 9 inch pan.



Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar, and mix well.





Whisk together the eggs, butter and buttermilk. Add wet to dry ingredients, mixing just until

incorporated. Pour into prepared pan.



Bake in preheated oven until top is browned and a toothpick comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Allow

to cool completely.





Direction for Stuffing:

In a small bowl, combine the salt with the white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder,

oregano, thyme, basil and bay leaves.



In another bowl, combine the minced onions, green onions, parsley, red or green peppers, chili peppers

and garlic.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the spices and cook for a few minutes. Add the vegetables and

cook about 5 minutes. Do not allow the vegetables to brown. Add the broth and hot sauce. Stir and cook

5 minutes more. Crumble the cornbread into the skillet and mix then remove pan from heat.

Whisk the eggs and evaporated milk, and pour into stuffing mixture. Return to low heat and cook,

stirring, for about 2 minutes. Remove the bay leaves. Place stuffing in a bowl, and let cool before

stuffing turkey.

Giveaway and Excerpt: "Redeemed"

To celebrate the release of Redeemed, the last House of Night book by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, I am happy to feature an excerpt from the book, and a giveaway of a signed House of Night comic!


"Redeemed"
by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: Oct 14, 2014

Summary from goodreads.com:
In the final electrifying novel in the HoN series, Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. A Dark Goddess is loose on Tulsa and the world. No single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her - unless that creature has the power to summon the elements as well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey Redbird is heir to such power…but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help. Find out who will win and who will lose in this epic battle of Light versus Darkness.
Excerpt


Excerpt #2:
Kalona streaked across the billowing thunderclouds almost in time with the lightning. The storm’s winds buffeted him, but Kalona took no heed of it. He had one duty, one responsibility, one edict from his Goddess. He would protect the people in need. No matter the cost, he chose to stand between Neferet and those he had come to value, even to love.
Suddenly, the clouds before him began to boil and change form until Kalona was staring into the glowing eyes of the White Bull. His body was an enormous cloud, his horns dripping with a rain of blood.
Though it has been eons since last we met, you are as predictable now as you were then. The voice blasted through Kalona’s mind. What mutually beneficial deal shall we make this time, Kalona?
“None, bull. Last time we met I rejected you in words, but not in my heart, nor in my deeds. Last time we met I allowed your Darkness to feed that which was weak within me and poison my life. This time I am different. This time I reject you in words, in heart, and in deeds.”
Really, Son of the Moon? Would you still reject me if I told you I had the power to restore to you everything you lost during the eons you have wandered the mortal realm?
“There is nothing you can give me that would be worth the price.”
But you haven’t even heard my price. It would be so very little in comparison to that which you have lost…

Giveaway and Review: "Mini Myths: Play Nice, Hercules!"

"Mini Myths: Play Nice, Hercules!"
by Joan Holub, Illus. by Leslie Patricelli

Publisher: Abrams Appleseed
Release Date: Sep 16, 2014
Source: sent by author


My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

Summary from goodreads.com:

Hercules is not as interested in “playing nice” as he is in playing strong! But when one feat of strength destroys his little sister’s 12-piece tower, he must use his powers for good to restore the tower and seek her forgiveness. She forgives him indeed, and then shows her own strength by gleefully knocking down the stacked blocks herself! Joan Holub’s expertly focused text pairs perfectly with Leslie Patricelli’s famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Hercules’s Twelve Labors myth at the end.
My Review:

I recently reviewed the first book in this new board book series for little ones, "Be Patient, Pandora!", and like the first book, this story is based on a Greek myth, retold for toddlers of today. In this installment, little Hercules isn't playing nice. He's being rough with his toys, and even knocks over his little sister's castle of blocks! He's kind of bad, really! But never fear, because Hercules realizes he wasn't playing nice, and helps to fix his mistakes. I think that I may have enjoyed Pandora's story a little bit more, but I think little ones will have fun reading (listening to) this one.

Like the previous book, the illustrations are bright and fun to look at! I think it's cute that Hercules' dad looks a little bit hipster, that makes me smile. Little Hercules and his sister have such expressive faces. You can easily see how they are feeling.


Bottom Line: This is another fun and lively installment of the Mini Myths series of board books. It's great to read a retelling of Greek myths for little ones, which will hopefully spark more interest in classics for childrens in the future.
