Tuna sandwiches don't seem like dinner, but tuna melts do. Basically, you're making a grilled cheese sandwich with a generous layer of tuna salad. It's just harder to turn over. So butter a piece of bread, put in the skillet, top with a spoonful of tuna salad, then slices of your favorite melting cheese. Put another piece of buttered bread on top. Push down with a spatula and grill till the bottom piece of bread is crusty. Carefully turn it over, cook until the second side is crusty and the cheese is melted.
My Tuna Salad Recipe
12 oz white flaked tuna in water drained
1 stalk celery finely diced
3 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dijon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Drain the tuna well. Albacore tuna has the freshest
flavor, any brand will do as long as it’s packed in water. Put the tuna into a
bowl and use a fork to separate the pieces.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
(I like tuna salad sandwiches, but I also like it
on wheat bread or wheat crackers. Or, make a tuna melt!)
Omega Gray Tomlinson is positive he’ll remain unmated
for the rest of his life. By his mid-thirties, he remains unclaimed and without
prospects, and lives confined to the Omega Quadrant, where he’s sure he’ll end
up dying alone.
When his older brother, Silver, and Silver’s alpha die
in a tragic accident, Gray’s nephews come to live in his little sequestered
world. Without an alpha, he knows he has little means to help support the boys.
The only choice he can stomach is to offer his services as a surrogate.
The minute Gray meets Jamie, the infertile omega who
so desperately wants a child, he senses a bond like none he’s ever felt before.
It’s brotherly love at first sight, and Gray decides Jamie is the one, agreeing
to carry his and his alpha, Rohan’s, child.
But when circumstances change, Gray is faced with new
challenges, a new love interest, and a battle for the very life that grew
inside him. And maybe there’s an alpha out there for him after all…

Okay, first off: This is a non-shifter, mpreg book. With
that out of the way, lol, OMG. Look, I’ve read a lot of Kel’s books, but this
one… this one really got to me. I cried. And I’m someone who does that over
books, as a rule. The emotions in this… whoo boy, prepare thyself. When this
came out, I told Kel I thought it was the best book she’d ever written.
The worldbuilding is out of this world, and really,
for me, that’s one of the highest compliments I can give. (See a pattern here
LOL? I go for books that focus on worldbuilding!)
Neo jumped up, rushed to the door, and stabbed the wall
plate granting permission for entrance. It slid open, and Neo’s breath caught. Low
lighting from the hallway illuminated auburn
hair threaded through with gray now and soft, big blue eyes bracketed by crow’s feet.
“Dad!” Relief flooded Neo. “Oh gods, Dad!”
John wrapped his arms around Neo’s waist and hugged
him. “My….” John’s voice broke. “My young.”
John hugged him as hard as he could, making Neo
grunt. He closed his eyes, and they started that stupid burning thing again,
and dammit, he was about to lose it there in front of the guards.
“Neo?” John rubbed his palms up and down
Neo’s back. “I’m sorry. I wanted to be here sooner, but I also wanted to find—”
dad’s turning red in the face, my friend. You, ah, might want to loosen your grip
Neo gasped, opening his eyes. Giving his dad one last hug, he let go and reached
for Laken. “How did I miss you standing there?” He demanded, pulling Laken into
honestly have no idea. It’s not like you can’t hear when I’m around.”
Laken smirked, the bells chiming sweetly in his hair as Neo lifted Laken off
am so glad to see you. So damn glad.” Neo lowered Laken back to his feet. Neo’s
heart yearned for Hamza, but if his mate couldn’t be here, then Laken was the next
best thing. He truly was Neo’s best friend.
Can a Warlord and a Prince find love when the galaxy
is on the brink of war?
Chief Warlord Sohm'lan has a job he loves protecting
the family who claims him as one of their own. He has known the loss of a mate
and believed he would walk alone for the rest of his life… that is until Prince
Mestor demanded more from him than duty. Unable to fathom why Mestor would want
a widowed older warrior, Sohm'lan maintains his distance believing Mestor will
eventually choose an amor closer in age and experience, even though the thought
causes him more pain than it should.
Prince Mestor is tired of pretending and his patience
is eroding. He needs Sohm'lan to see past their respective ranks and duties to
who Mestor is underneath it all. Worried Sohm'lan will be lost to him if he
pushes too hard, Mestor and Sohm'lan are caught in a dance of denied desires
and tangled obligations.
Warlord Sohm'lan and Prince Mestor struggle to find a
way to their heart's desire against the backdrop of galactic conspiracies, the
dangerous mission escorting the Fal'Amoric royals, and discoveries within the
Vondorian family that threaten to tear apart everything they hold dear. The two
of them stand together to fight the coming battle whatever the consequences.
*Note: Constant is 250,000 words and is
the third book in the series that must be read in order.
My thoughts: It’s here! It’s here! Y’all, when I heard this book was coming, I can not
tell you how loudly I yelled lol. I’m a huge fan of this series. You want excellent
scifi worldbuilding, this is the book for you. The details are so clear, so
crisp…. It’ll impress you. It did me. Lexi doesn’t build just one world. No,
she builds a whole frigging universe lol. Speaking from experience, that’s not
This book covers Warlord Sohm’lan and Prince Mestor’s relationship,
but it’s so much more than that. We get an in-depth look at the younglings of
the royal Vondorion family. We see how they feel, how they react to what’s
going on with Zeus and other plot points.
You absolutely need to read Alpha Trine and Striker
first, or you will be completely lost, in my opinion. This story runs parallel
to events in Striker but the overall plot *is* continued. Make sure you have plenty of time when you start this. You won’t want to put it down lol.
These are books I’ve read and really enjoyed. Most of
what I talk about will probably be paranormal/scifi but not always. Although
it’s rare, I do read some contemporary.
This week is: Murder Husbands by E.M. Denning
DARK MM Romance Pounds of flesh repay debts in Pierce's world.
In a sea of nameless bodies, Henry Prince is sold to Pierce to settle a score
and turns out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
Pierce’s empire is crumbling around him and before Henry, he hadn’t cared to
salvage it. Henry is full of secrets, and Pierce is desperate to learn them
all, even if it means risking both their lives to protect him from the enemies
closing in around them.
Together, Henry and Pierce are unstoppable. Their devotion is immeasurable
until two men from Pierce’s past threaten their trust in each other when it’s
needed most. Drew and Griffin are a painful reminder of how much Pierce will
risk protecting the man he loves. Henry's attraction to Griffin might be the
key to uniting his past and his future, but Pierce’s animosity and desire for
Drew threaten the delicate balance the men have forged.
Good men can be bad and bad men can do good, but life isn't always black and
white. Sometimes all you can do is fight to save yourself and those you love.
Is there strength in numbers or will Pierce fail when it counts the most?
My thoughts: First off, let me say how jealous of that title I am lol. No kidding, I am such
a title slut, and I would’ve killed to have thought up such a cool title! Okay,
now that I got that off my chest, lol, once more I seem to be highlighting a
dark book. This isn’t the darkest thing I’ve ever read, but it does touch on stuff
that might trigger some folks, so be aware of that. The blurb does a good job
of telling us what the story is about also. Yes, this is a love story, but it’s
not your usual fluffy love story. There is violence. Blood. Pierce was actually
my favorite character, although Henry def makes the book.
