This book grew out of the first seven years of August Lageman’s practice as a shaman. The book shows how the teachings of the Four Winds Society actually work with clients. In addition, August kept an open mind and integrated tools and insights from other forms of healing such as reiki and Holographic Healing. This book demonstrates how a person with a rocky childhood can heal from early wounds with the help of skilled shamans. August writes from his heart. You will learn how a shaman needs to be ready for the unexpected.

 

About the Author

Then August was commissioned as an officer in the Army Reserves and National Guard, serving both in the reserves and on active duty. He retired with over twenty-nine years of service as a full colonel in 2003. August trained as a shaman in the Four Winds Society, graduating in 2010.

Daisy Bishop is a sassy single mom with a dream of making her part-time job of dancing in throwback burlesque shows her full-time career.

Excerpt
He stood as she wrapped the towel around the ice and applied it to her ankle. “Ahh, sweet Lord. God, that hurts.” She squeezed her eyes shut. This pain in her ankle was starting to feel expensive.
He must have read her mind. “I think you need to go to the hospital.”
“No thanks.” She couldn’t afford it, although she be damned if she told him that.
“It’ll be my treat.”
She opened one eye and stared at him from underneath her false eyelash. His lips crooked in a half-smile. “You sure know how to show a girl a good time, but no thanks.” She shot Jonathan a look. “Can you make sure Henry here gets home okay? He’s been drinking too much to drive, and I don’t think his buddy’s much better off.”
“Sure.” Jonathan waved at Henry. “Come on. I’ll get you a Lyft.” He turned and then shot a glance back over his shoulder. “You can wait out in the lobby.”
It was a dismissal, and Henry had to know it. He looked at her, reluctant to go. “Here.” He scrounged around on a nearby table until he found a piece of paper and a stub of a pencil. He wrote something and handed her the paper. “If you need anything, anything at all, give me a call.”
She looked at the paper. Henry Stanton. 555-3022. She stuck it in her cleavage, momentarily forgetting her pain when a flush swept over Henry’s face. “What? It’s not like I have a pocket in this get-up.”

Review

Wow, this novel really blew me away. From the characterization, to the drama, to the setting. I think that every moving part to this novel really came together and made it unforgettable.

This is just an overall well balanced novel. The pacing and flow are spot on and I was thoroughly engaged throughout.

This is a novel that while you think would be very cut and dry is actually not. I was surprised in several spots and the writing was superbly done.

Review

Love, Action, Heart-pounding mystery.

There is so much going on for these characters throughout the story. It is a fast paced ride from the beginning.

These characters each have their own personalities and depth to them. None of them felt one-dimensional or forced, they all shined through as individuals.

 

I loved the descriptive way this novel was written. It really submerges the reader into the world. Tamara H. Hartl’s writing is a breath of fresh air.

Crazy Sexy Love

Title: Crazy Sexy Love

A Dirty Dicks Novel

Author: K.L. Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2018
Blurb
Three-time world champion bull rider Rhett
Allen has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Hard work, sweat, and
determination have gotten him where he is today—and that’s holed up in a
hospital room, wondering how he let that damn bull buck him off. He’s also
wondering why he thought it was a good idea to let his twin brother talk him
into returning home to heal.
Rhett has a million reasons to come home to
Heaven, Texas, and only one reason to stay away. That reason comes in the form
of a sweet and feisty girl who stole his heart long before he ever thought to
give it away. The only problem…that girl has turned into a stunning woman.
Monroe Gallagher is downright sexy with more
curves than he has notches in his bed post. It’s been six years since he’s seen
her, six years since he’s felt any form of peace, and six years since she
gripped his heart in her delicate little hands and squeezed the life out of it.
The longer he’s in Heaven, the more he starts to realize that the heart she
took from him—the one she crushed into a million pieces—she also never gave
back.

Excerpt

 

“Make love to me.”
“Plannin’ on it.” Pushing up from the bed, I kick off my
shoes and slip her sandals from her feet. Her eyes follow my every move.
Careful not to lift my left arm too high, I reach behind my head and pull my
shirt off. When I reach for my sweats, she sucks in a sharp breath, her eyes
glued to my cock as I let my pants fall to the floor.
“Your turn.” I crawl onto the bed, her eyes searing through
me. When I undo the button of her shorts, she lifts her hips, allowing me to
pull them off, along with her white cotton panties. Sitting up, she reaches for
the bottom of her shirt, lifts it over her head, and flings it off to the side.
“You are so beautiful, Mo.”
The last time I looked down at her like this, sprawled out
in front of me, I was too young to appreciate her—too young to understand the
depth of what she was giving me. But that’s no longer the case. I’ve dreamed of
her many times over the last six years, but my fantasies didn’t do her justice.
Nothing compares to having her in my bed—hair fanned out, chest heaving, creamy
skin begging for my mouth. I have to reach out to touch her to make sure she’s
real.
I slide my fingers over her abdomen. The muscles contract
beneath my touch.
She looks down, but I shake my head. “No, sweetheart, keep
your eyes on me. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. I’ve seen every inch
of you, remember?”
Her cheeks turn the prettiest shade of pink. “It’s been a
long time. My body has changed.”
“Hasn’t been that long, and trust me, your body is perfect.”
With a flick of the front clasp, her bra opens, her
beautiful breasts spilling out. She shrugs out of it, and I lower my body to
hers, scarcely able to believe this is happening.

Laiken has finally heard the dark rumors about me.

Everyone who hears runs away. But she can’t.

She’s trapped here, in my house—with me.

Each minute we’re together I’m driven to swallow her up. To see if the
electricity that moves between us will grow or vanish. I thought we were
falling in love.

Now, I’m sure that she hates my very existence.

But when she glares at me… I see a flicker of desire in her blue eyes.

The way she fixates on my mouth reminds me of how filthy we’ve been.

How filthy we could be.

My father has warned me to stay away from her. He knows she’s become my
weakness.

All my life, I just wanted to be the perfect soldier for him.

To do everything he asked so he’d be proud.

I thought I could.

She’s doing her best to prove me wrong.

Review

Informative and Inspiring at the same time. This is one of those self help novels that I feel really did what the blurb tells you it will do. It gives you real life examples and experiences. Not everything works the same for everyone else, but I think reading about someone else’s struggles helps you not feel alone in the battle. Seeing that it has been done, it can be done really gives you extra hope and motivation. A solid non-fiction piece of writing.
