Book-of-the-Day: Cascadia Wolves: Standoff


Every day from today until January 4th, 2010, I’ll be giving away one of Lauren Dane’s fabulous novels. In turn, she will be giving one of mine away. Head on over to her blog to see which one.

By random drawing, the winner of yesterday’s book-of-the-day contest for CHASED is LaRonda, who said, “Happy New Year all! Here’s to health, happiness and good books.”

Congratulations! You have a week from today to contact me and collect your prize. anyabast (at) gmail.com

Cascadia Wolves: STANDOFF: Cade Warden has put his Pack first for most of his life and now Warren Pellini and his thugs threaten everything he holds dear. Into that life of intense focus and increasing loneliness walks the woman he’s been waiting for.

Grace Pellini isn’t just Cade’s mate, she’s the sister of his greatest enemy and she’s been putting herself in grave danger to gather information to aid the Nationally Allied Packs. Cade is everything she could have hoped for in a man even if he is overprotective and pushy at times.

Against the backdrop of their increasing passion and deepening bond, they race against time to find a key to stop Pellini’s biological weapon. And then the stakes rise again when Pellini calls an ancient Challenge. It’s up to Grace to stand by and let her mate risk everything for his people. And his life is in her hands.

  1. I tried something different this year. Resolutions have a negative connotation, meaning there is a problem which must be resolved.

    I have 5 aspirations for the year. One of them is to just say “no” without adding an explanation when I don’t want to do something.

  2. My darling husband and I have decided to go on a diet. Since he retired this past October, and he loves to cook we have put on a few extra pounds in this short period.
    We basically eat healthy, but maybe too much and the holidays have not helped it either.

  3. This year I have solid attainable goals. I plan to strive for them this year and hopefully the goals will put doors in my path. Door I may or may not choose to walk thru, but choices non the less.

  4. Like Cathi and Jennifer, I tend to avoid “resolutions” in favor of goals. This year I haven’t set any new goals though, except for generally trying to read more books off my TBR :)

  5. Instead of resolutions I have goals: To write more, read more, enjoy the things I have & generally be inspired.

  6. No resolutions this year. I love my life like it is now so I haven’t anything to change. Wishes, yes those I’m having and I am working on to reach them all ;-)
    Happy New Year everyone!

  7. Since trying to stick to a diet has not worked for me, this year I am just going to try to eat healthier and to walk more each day.

  8. I am still contemplating the resolutions….Will finalize by days end

  9. I haven’t made any resolutions for years. I just have hopes for each new year (usually good health for family members etc.)

  10. Not exactly a resolution, more like a decision. Things I want to do, see, and experience that I’ve always said I’d do later…well, later is now.

  11. I made only one, to spend more time with my family.

  12. I made one to carve out time to read at least 2 books a month.

  13. I am not so good with resolutions…so this year I am trying goals. Some of the goals include becoming debt free (or at least working on it), eating healthier, and spending more time with my friends & family instead of working to much.

  14. Mine is to try to read more books than last year!

  15. I didn’t make any resolutions this year – I didn’t want to be disappointed when I broke them…again!

  16. My resolution is to try to be more social.

  17. No no resolutions. I never stick to them so i decided not to make any. I just try to do the best i can and hope for the best! lol


  18. I don’t really do resolutions. In the past, I’ve usually abandoned then all by the first week :grin:

  19. learn to bake a cake… and get better at tweaking my new blogger :)

  20. I didn’t make any resolutions because that’s a sure bet that I won’t stick to them.

  21. To read as many books as I can get my hands on!!!!

    Happy New Year! :wink:

  22. Resolutions? No.Whenever I used to make them I never kept them.So why waste the time in making any :)

  23. I don’t really do resolutions anymore. I try to stay consistent with my goals year round.

  24. Goals are more attainable for me so this year I made a few small one but the main one is a meeting of ladies I have become very fond of through of all thing the Internet total for 18 plan to head for common ground in July I am from Canada the meet is in Nashville.
    Have a good one.

  25. No resolutions, I’m just going to try to keep going in the same vein as 2009, working hard to get my nursing degree!

  26. I don’t normally do resolutions since they’re too easy to break. But I’m hoping to maybe start my own blog and try to stress less about making everyone else happy all the time.

  27. Nope. No resolutions. Too easy to get down on yourself if/when you fail to follow through. I’m too busy being a small business owner in a tourist town and am going to be a grandma in July. Don’t need the added stress of failed resolutions.

  28. No resolutions. I had numerous health problems in 2008 and 2009 saw my health much improved and want to continue improving in health for 2010.

  29. I want to be as healthy as I can, so I’m going to try to work out and eat better. I also want to find a new job. Keeping up with my blog and staying more organized would be nice as well.

  30. My resolution to myself this year is to work on my novel and short stories and write at least 500 words a day. Being a stay at home mommy and having little ones around makes it a bit hard but I’m going for it.

    Happy New Year to all!

  31. Keep up doing the treadmill for 1 hour every day and trying to eat healthier.

  32. I thoroughly believe New Year’s resolutions are destined to be broken, so I plan my goals one January 2nd! I resolve to put a huge dent in my TBR list! Please wish me luck! It’s a rather large list! lol! Happy New Year!

  33. I don’t like saying “resolution” either so I didn’t set any BUT I do resolve to eat healthier! And maybe lose some weight for my cruise in the summer!

  34. My resolution for 2010 is getting my first flat – I delayed it a few months but now I really need to get one *tschaka*

  35. My “resolution” is to do some volunteer work at a nursing home.

    Forget about dieting, I like sourdough bread too much!

  36. Mo resolutions, they usually never last thru th first week, however I do have some aspirations for the year, to be a better listiner to my family, to scrap more of my memories, not to be so negative:)

  37. No resolututions, I just pray that the current year doesn’t suck as bad as the last.

  38. No resolutions. they just fall by the wayside.

  39. YES! But only book related “goals” (I don’t like using the term resolutions…. they seem destined to be broken!)

  40. I didn’t make any this year. I am just going day by day. LOL. Happy New Year.

  41. I didn’t make any resolutions this year. I never seemed to keep them and always made me feel bad, so instead I just plan to live in the moment and enjoy every day….I guess you could call that a resolution :)

  42. I don’t usually make any resolutions. When I make resolutions, I never seem to keep them. I would like to firm up some since I lost some wieght last year. Also I am planning on trying to be there more often for my family and friends (even my online friends) and also to get back to reading all of the great books out there. I am behind on my reading.

  43. I hope to look for the positive and never dwell on the negative. I also want to exercise more regularly.

  44. I am going to keep my house tidier. This involves wading through a lot of junk and reading through the books I have on my shelf before buying new ones or taking from the library.

  45. My resolutions this year are to make more time for my photography and to walk 3 times a week.

  46. I didn’t make not ONE! I’m giving up on resolutions :smile:

  47. I dont do resolutions. But i do feel the need for goals in life.

  48. I don’t have any resolutions, but do have a wish. It’s that can read even more books this year.

  49. I refuse to make resolutions. It’s like a form of pressure to me. I’d much rather resolve to do something, and get it done when it needs to be.

    God Bless,
    Rhonda :blush:

  50. I decided against having a resolution this year as they never last, instead in the next few months i will decide on something i would like to try. For instance last April i gave up smoking & 9 months on i am still off them, whereas that had been my resolution for years & i never managed it more than a few day.

    So my resolution is no more resolutions.

    Thanks for running this giveaway.

    Happy New Year Everyone. xx

  51. Yes, to relax more and read more. To keep my home neat..lol .. not sure about this one.

    But I am thankful for my health and family.

  52. To quilt, knit and READ more!

  53. My resolution is to get my house clean and attempt to keep it that way, despite the efforts of my 7 y/o to prevent that.

  54. I have got to become more organized…I waste an amazing amount of time looking for misplaced items!

  55. I’m hoping it will be a happy new year. I have not made any resolutions and I don’t have any plans to make any.

  56. Resolutions per se never seem to work, but I have promised my self to clean out one closet (or room) per month and unclutter my life. :grin:

  57. My resolution is to study and do better in school.

  58. to get into nursing school

  59. I WILL make time for a personal life. LOL I must remember that there is more than college and work.

  60. I always seem to get more discouraged after making resolutions and then breaking them so I decided not to make any; I will simply give myself some encouragement in what I would like to achieve.

  61. I stopped making resolutions many years ago; I never keep them after a month anyway. I’ve been working on trying to become a more spiritual, Godly person for some time now -obviously a lifelong process that I would like to continue.

  62. I don’t make resolutions, but I an planning on trying to eat better this coming year.

  63. This year I didn’t make any resolutions since I never seem to keep them.


  64. I never keep my resolutions so I did make one this year.
