Can’t help it…Spring makes me smile! by Elle James aka Myla Jackson

After the long hard winter we had, I anxiously awaited the first glimpses of spring. And here they are for your viewing pleasure!

First were the blue hyacinths, bigger than my hand and fragrant.


Then came the daffodils (not sure what kind of daffodil this is, but it’s pretty and different) DaffodilsNow my pink and yellow tulips are blooming with a vengeance and the hosta plants are leafing, ready for the first round of deer feasting (that’s right, we call it deer salad).  The sky is blue and clear of the dreary winter clouds, the sun is shining and it renews my spirit.TulipBunchYellowTulipPinkTulipskyI found the first snake in our front yard. I thought it was worm at first until I saw the ring around his neck. He looked a little beat up and shell-shocked from just waking up to a cool spring morning. (Not a fan of snakes? Even the little ones? Sorry. I think they are cool). I hope you’re enjoying your spring and that you aren’t getting the snow my friend in Montana was gifted recently. firstsnakeWhile you’re out enjoying the blooming trees and tulips, check out my upcoming release SEAL’S SEDUCTION, the 6th book in my TAKE NO PRISONERS series. It’s available for preorder and releases April 28th.

SEAL’S SEDUCTION (A Take No Prisoners Book #6) by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Elle James

Navy SEAL puts his training to the test when he must rescue a sexy news reporter from a hostage situation

Home on emergency leave, Navy SEAL Dusty Ford didn’t expect to run into his high school sweetheart, local news reporter Jenna Turner, figuring she’d have shaken off the dust of their hometown a long time ago. A woman as addicted to action and adventure as he was, he thought she’d have moved on. But she was still there, and every bit as distracting as she’d been when they were teens.

Jenna Turner never got over Dusty, but moved on with her life, establishing herself as a news reporter for the local station. In an effort to take on more than reporting social events and weddings, with the help of a cousin and an inside connection on the police force, she chases the hotter news items, determined to make her break into the national news scene.

Now that he’s older and wiser and his father is on the mend, Dusty tests the heat with his old flame and finds it’s sizzling. When Jenna is caught in the crossfire and taken hostage during an ATF raid, Dusty and his brothers stage a rescue operation to bring her and others out alive.

    Ewwwwwwww on the snake~~ In my opinion, the only good snake, is a DEAD snake. I killed one just about that size in my yard on Sat. The sucker crawled over the top of my foot and that was too much for me. Husband said it was a baby water moccasin. But I’m not stupid…..if there’s a baby one, then the mama won’t be far behind. Gives me the creepy crawlies.
    Loved the flowers, they are beautiful. And the excerpt wasn’t bad either. Already preordered.
    Have a great day.
