Strands of Love
Tapestries, Book 7

Tied to the land in a way that only another Texan can understand, Samantha Calloway is facing mounting debts and a merciless drought as she struggles to save the farm that’s been in her family for generations. Unwilling to surrender to an unscrupulous neighbor who offers her a way out, Samantha is left hoping for a miracle when she’s stunned by the mysterious appearance of two hulking, otherworldly warriors on her land—men who stir an undeniable sensual desire in her.
Darian and Jace Hunter are deeply committed to the welfare of their expansive lands and all the people who rely on them, but privately they are also deeply saddened at the prospect of living out their lives without the blessing of a loving woman. They know well the stories of the magic tapestry that might bring them a bride, but they’re still shocked when the tapestry appears—and mysteriously transports them to the world of the beautiful and sensitive Samantha.

As the brothers try to explain the promise of the tapestry to a skeptical Samantha, the trio are suddenly transported back to Javara, where Samantha soon learns that the brothers are as deeply dedicated to the land as she is—and also dedicated to unleashing the power of their passion to bring her to sexual heights she’d never imagined. And as she’s confronted with a choice between returning to her home alone or forsaking it all for a chance at a loving life with Darian and Jace, they will stop at nothing to entice her with every glorious erotic pleasure and unquestioning devotion to win her heart and a lifetime of unending love . . .


“What the hell have you done to me? Did you drug me?” Sam was angry, but beneath the anger he heard her fear, and that just wouldn’t do.

“Do you remember the tapestry?” Jace asked her, keeping his voice low just as he would when dealing with a high-strung filly.

“The small rug.” She rubbed her temple and frowned. “Yeah, I think so. But that couldn’t have happened. A rug doesn’t simply float in the air.”

“This one does. A powerful sorceress created the tapestry a very long time ago.” Jace relaxed his stance as he continued speaking, keeping his arms loose by his sides. Darian carefully inched slightly behind Sam, ready to catch her if she decided to run.

“In Javara women are scarce and the sorceress gifted our world with the tapestry. Once or twice a generation, the tapestry brings a woman from another world to ours. It is a woman who has the potential to thrive in our world.” Jace frowned, still not understanding what had happened. “The tapestry has come several times in our generation and this is only the second time in history that the tapestry has taken any of us with it when it went to find the woman.”

Sam crossed her arms over her chest and scowled and Jace. “That’s all fine and good for you, but I want to go home.”

“Sam,” he began, but she wasn’t having any of it and actually stamped her foot.

“No, I don’t want to hear it. I want to go home. Now.”

Jace shook his head slowly, his heart breaking for her, for all of them. Obviously, the tapestry had made a grave error. Sam was a wealthy woman in her world, a landowner. Nor did it seem as though she was interested in them at all.

He, on the other hand, was totally enthralled by her, her strength and obvious courage, her beauty and kindness. She’d taken two strangers into her home, offering them refreshments from such priceless glass cups. What could they offer her here?

Their hearts and their love. It was all they had to give. Their loyalty and the promise of a family. But would it be enough?

The Keto Bread You've Been Dreaming Of

I’ve been living the ketogenic lifestyle for more than a year now and have tried many disappointing bread recipes. This is the keto bread you’ve been dreaming of. It doesn’t taste eggy, is actually soft, light and flavorful, as well as low carb. And bonus, the recipe is super easy, requiring no real baking skills. I use these rolls for avocado toast, as hamburger buns, for sandwiches, or have them whenever I’m craving bread. They are great toasted and served warm, slathered with butter or some cream cheese.

Skill Level: Easy

Servings: 6

5 tablespoons ground psyllium husk powder
1 ¼ cups almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cider vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
3 egg whites
1 cup water
Oil (I use avocado but any variety is fine)
Everything bagel seasoning (optional)
(4 tablespoons sesame seeds, 4 tablespoons poppy seeds, 2 tablespoons dried minced onion, 2 tablespoons dried garlic flakes, 2 teaspoons sea or pink Himalayan salt) Or just buy some everything but the bagel seasoning

Preheat oven to 350F
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add vinegar and egg whites, mix well.
Bring water to a boil, either on the stove or in the microwave for 90 to 120 seconds. Add to other ingredients. Don’t over mix, just until its doughty and well combined.
Spread everything bagel seasoning in a shallow bowl or plate.
Moisten fingers with oil, so dough doesn’t stick, and shape into 6 separate ovals.
Coat in bagel seasoning and set onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (I only coat the top.)
Bake on lower oven rack for 50-60 minutes until tapping the bottom of roll creates a hollow sound.
