In 1900, only two percent of meals in America were eaten outside the home; now it is over fifty percent. Dr. Hyman calls for readers to take back their health by taking back their kitchens. The major culprit of diabetes, obesity and heart disease is insulin imbalance. Following Dr. Hyman’s scientifically based program for rebalancing insulin and blood sugar levels, this cookbook presents 175 delectable recipes that are free of allergens and harmful inflammatory ingredients. Readers will exchange toxic factory-made foods for nutritious and easy-to-make dishes such as Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Mexican Shrimp Ceviche, Tuscan Zucchini Soup, Raspberry Banana Cream Pie Smoothie, Chocolate Nut Cake, and more. THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION COOKBOOK will illuminate the inner nutritionist and chef in every reader.
Here is the Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning book description from the Amazon website:
Violet Raines is happy with things just the way they are in her sleepy Florida town, but when Melissa moves to town from big-city Detroit, all of a sudden things seem like they’re changing whether Violet likes it or not. It’ll take a few run-ins with lightning and a whole lot of courage for her to realize that growing up doesn’t have to mean changing who you are. Readers will be struck by this moving coming-of-age story. Danette Haworth held a number of writing jobs before turning to fiction, including positions as a technical writer and a travel writer. Growing up in a military family, Danette lived up and down the East Coast and in Turkey and England; she now calls Orlando, FL, her home. Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning is her first novel.
Here is the Kiss of Steel book description from the Amazon website:
When Nowhere is Safe
Most people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria Todd, it’s the last safe haven. But at what price?
Blade is known as the master of the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It’s been said he faced down the Echelon’s army single–handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood–craving he’s been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal.
When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She’s so…innocent. He doesn’t see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he’s been seeking.
Here is the Making You Mine book description from the Amazon website:
Always in control, the meticulous and professional Salvador Moreno is thrown for a loop when the newly hired bartender Grace Zendejas suddenly invades his family’s restaurant, and infuriatingly, his every thought. For the first time in his life, Sal is fumbling. But after recovering from a few blunders he discovers his feelings for Grace run much deeper.
Things begin to heat up between him and Grace, but then the ever-perfect Sal does something even his brothers never did—screws up royally. Now he’s scrambling to cover up a mistake he knows could cost him dearly. As his relationship with Grace grows even more serious, Sal’s secret is a ticking bomb, threatening to destroy the one thing he now lives and breathes for—his relationship with the love of his life—Grace.
With a BONUS Sarah and Angel 11k word short story “Only Eight Days” .
Free App of the Day
Today’s Free App of the Day is Sprinkle and this game app is normally $12.99 in the Amazon App Store but is free for today only.
Here is the app’s description from the Amazon App Store website:
On a Planetary Moon, far, far Away
The inhabitants of Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, lived out their days happily and peacefully in straw hut homes, without the need for fire protection or defense for as long as anyone could remember. Then one day, space tourists from Earth inadvertently crashed through Saturn’s rings, bringing a storm of flaming asteroids crashing down on the Titans. To combat the widespread fires threatening their homes, the Titans built a massive water cannon. And they’ve asked YOU to man it!
Using a water cannon mounted on a crane, players must adjust the height and angle of the cannon to fight fires, move obstacles, spin wheels and activate traps in this challenging water physics-based puzzler! Squirt carefully, as you will run out of water, and the less water you use, the more drops you earn.
Using some of the most realistic water physics seen on a mobile device yet, Sprinkle is a brain-teasing game that will have players straining to figure out each puzzle and obstacle.
Amazing water physics: some of the most realistic water physics ever seen on a mobile device make Sprinkle an exciting and addictive puzzler.
Brain-teasing puzzles: what starts as simply pointing and spraying to quench each fire becomes much more challenging through the 72 levels, as players must overcome the intricacies of each puzzle before time and water run out.
Blocks, boulders, and cogs (oh my!): Use the power of your water cannon to move blocks of ice and boulders, spin giant cogs, and depress traps in order to reach and extinguish every last fire.
