Hunted for her ability to steal time, Bay North lives a life on the run. All she wants is to make the crime lord who slaughtered her family pay. But now he’s set the ultimate hunter on her trail and Bay will need all her skills to carry out her revenge and survive.

Ex-Navy SEAL Sean Archer saw his team killed by a time thief in Afghanistan and came back a broken man. He’s made a dark deal with a criminal to hunt down all time thieves and now Sean’s tracked the wily Bay North to Denver where he plans to rid the world of one more dangerous mutation.

But during a shootout, hunter and hunted find themselves depending on each other for survival. Joining forces to exact payback by stealing a priceless treasure, their reluctant alliance shatters both their defenses. Can Bay find the courage to trust? And can Sean convince a woman honed in revenge that she can have more than vengeance, blood and killing?

Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?

Another find via Kelly 🙂 This sounded like a fun, sexy fantasy/sci-fi novella… and it was. While sometimes I read a novella and don’t feel like I need more of a back story, this time I did. Don’t get me wrong, it all makes sense. I just wanted more explanation. I enjoyed reading this (I even picked it up after putting it down for a few days), however, I didn’t feel a connection with the romance which left me questioning whether I want to read the next in the series or not.

{Fit Friday} Spicy Buffalo Quinoa Salad

fit fridayToday is my office’s Final Four Potluck. I never know what to bring to potlucks (or family dinners). It’s usually expected that I’ll bring something healthy… and then no one eats it. This time I’m hoping there are plenty of leftovers to take home 🙂

Spicy Buffalo Quinoa Salad

(adapted from this recipe)

  • 2 cups cooked and chilled quinoa
  • 1 small bottle of Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • 1 can black beans
  • bell peppers, diced
  • celery, diced
  • green onion, chopped
  • crumbled gorgonzola

I cooked the quinoa the night before and let it chill in the fridge overnight. This morning I pulled out my already diced celery and bell peppers (I was lazy and bought them this way). I chopped up some green onion and drained and rinsed the black beans.

I started by just combining the quinoa and black beans. Then added the whole bottle of hot sauce. Then I added celery, bell peppers, and green onion until it looked like a good mix. I left the cheese out to be added separate since I know people that wouldn’t like it mixed in.

*If* there are leftovers, I plan on having it with chicken for dinner 🙂

{Time to Talk} Blogroll

timetotalk2

My blogroll hasn’t been updated in a long time. Actually, it says I updated it in Feb 2013, but I’m not sure what I did to it. The Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin has a handy option to help build and update your blogroll. However, before I put time into that, I wanted to know…

Do you look at blogrolls?

I don’t think I do. I find new bloggers from comment sections on my own blog and other sites, but I don’t remember the last time I looked at someone’s Links page.

I’m thinking it would be more worth my time (and more beneficial to my fellow bloggers) if I starting doing Who Am I Stalking again instead of updating the page. Thoughts?
