Author Spotlight: Terry Bolryder
It is rare that I buy every book from one author. In the case of Terry Bolryder, she has found a formula in her writing that draws me in so much, that I pretty much want everything that she has written.
I have read SEVERAL complete series and box sets from her. From the books I have read, it seems that she writes paranormal books focusing on bear and lion shifters as her main characters.
I discovered Terry Bolryder when I purchased the Polar Heat Boxed Set . I liked her writing style because she has so many different types of plots that are somewhat similar in a way, but still different enough that I am entertained. Her heroes are alpha protectors who will do whatever they have to do in order to be with their mates. The heroines are independent, sassy, and can hold their own against the dominant men who come into their lives.
Another great thing I like about her writing, fated mates does not matter when it comes to race or species. Some stories are BWWM and others are bear-lion or bear-wolf shifter combinations. None of it seems forced. They (usually the guy) recognize who their fated mate is and they do what they have to do in order to ensure the relationship’s success.
Should you buy? I think so! I just went ahead and provided the links for the box sets (where available) because you cannot read just one!

I’m a doctor. Not just any doctor. I’m an OB/GYN, so I know my way around the female anatomy. It goes without saying, I’m pretty comfortable around women. That is, until one particular bespectacled beauty makes me incredibly uncomfortable. And suddenly, I’ve got no clue whatsoever what to do about this particular woman.
I did it. I had a one night stand and now all the warnings my momma gave me are coming true. I’m pregnant and he’s not really into relationships, let alone the instant family kind. So, I’m going it alone in Ireland, a country I’ve only just moved to, and ready to be a single mother, until my search for a doctor leads me right back to him.
Keifer Vassago, The Prince of Dragons, has enough on his plate without adding a brunette with a bad attitude to the mix
Fate has a way of screwing all his plans, though, whether he wants them screwed or not. One second he’s fetching his brother from yet another situation that could possibly compromise the Vassago name, and the next that brunette is grabbing his assets.
Blythe isn’t after anyone’s assets, though. She’s a good girl. All she wants is to graduate from nursing school, get a job, and move out of her hell hole apartment. What she does not have time to deal with is a sexy bearded man that accuses her of grabbing his junk.
She tries to forget about the encounter, but fate’s a cruel bitch.
One second she’s a normal college student barely living paycheck to paycheck, and the next she’s setting her panties on fire with powers from an ancient immortal dragon.
To add insult to injury, she’s hearing voices, and none of them are figments of her imagination. Blythe’s life is turned upside down, and Keifer forces her to adapt even though she doesn’t want to. She likes her life just the way it is.
Not to mention she wants nothing to do with that arrogant asshole. She doesn’t care that he rides a dragon. She also could care less about his stupid beard, and his sexy eyes.
Yeah, who was she kidding? She wasn’t convincing anybody.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
This month for Try It Tuesday, I decided to tell you about Siggi’s yogurt. I admit that I bought this yogurt because of the stylish packaging. ***I am a marketer’s dream<3*** As I read the label to see what was made Siggi’s yogurt from other yogurts, I realized that I never had an Icelandic style cream yogurt and thought that would be good to try in case I liked it.
It caught my eye, BUT the regular price (I think regular price was $1.75) was more than I wanted to pay for a cup of yogurt. When I saw it on sale last week at my local grocer, I decided that it was time for me try.
The number of calories in Siggi’s are much higher than what I usually expect when eating yogurt. In reading the package, the company said that they do not use as much sugar as other yogurts brands. I thought this would be a good thing because sometimes I think that yogurts are too sweet. I like sugar and honey as sweeteners but do not like stevia, sucrolose or aspartame.
After tasting this yogurt, I thought
- I needed to add honey because it was not sweet enough.
- I could not taste the coconut flavor, tasted like plain yogurt (not even hints of vanilla).
- It was thicker than Greek yogurt and very creamy.
TOW Opinion: If you are looking for a yogurt that has a lot protein and very little sugar, then you will like this flavor of Siggi’s. To me, I would prefer buying plain Greek yogurt since I still need to add sweetener to it. When I eat yogurt with granola and fruit, I want my entire cup to be 200 calories or less. I would rather sacrifice a little bit of the creaminess for a sweetener like honey. However, if the prices were the same, I might opt for the plain Siggi’s (about 80 calories) which is similar to plain Greek yogurt but a lot creamier.
