Welcome to the first stop on the St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop!! Yes, I know its the day before St. Patrick's Day, but as I will be celebrating tomorrow, I made the hop the day before LOL.
Below this post is exactly how you can win some prizes...so read on.
So what does it mean to be a person who celebrates the holiday? Well, for some, they drink. And drink often. For others, they wear green so they don't get pinched. For others...well...there are so many ways.
For me? Well, I'm 50% Irish. So I usually call my gramps and have him tell a tale. That's what he does. Then I wear a splash of green. Mostly because I work at a school and hate to be pinched. Then I make corned beef and cabbage - because its AWESOME. Sometimes I go out and have a green beer. But really, it just depends. I love the holiday and how everyone comes out of the wood work and is now "Irish" LOL.
What do you do for St. Patrick's Day? Are you "Irish" or Irish?

A Taste for a Mate.
Jasper Jamenson fought himself as he walked into the bakery that morning. This would be the seventh week in a row in which he came here every day but Sunday. And that was only because the damn store was closed. As good as the cinnamon rolls were, and they were little tastes of heaven, it was the woman behind the counter that brought him there every morning.
Following a particularly bad night in the forest on a hunt Jasper was pissed and hungry. Another wolf tried to play a dominant game, forcing Jasper to hurt him. The stench of other’s defeat remained on him, only angering Jasper just that much more. The scent of the morning’s freshly baked goods pulled him through the quaint and welcoming door while the slender goddess who served him brought thoughts of a different form of servicing to mind.
Slightly above average in height, he would guess about five foot seven; she was the perfect height to settle against his body. For someone who owned and operated a bakery she was as skinny as a rail. However, if he looked close enough he could see the telltale signs curves. He knew that just a little bit of his help and pampering she would gain well-needed cushion but no matter what, she would look amazing underneath him. Long, light brown hair was constantly in a bun on the top of her head. His fingers ached to pull out the pins and watch it tumble down her back. Hazel eyes sought him and begged for his protection. Damn, he was willing.
A Taste for a Mate Blurb
Jasper Jamenson’s only responsibility to being the Beta of the Redwood Pack, second son of the Alpha, is to protect the Pack from themselves and the human world. After a century of selfless service, his brother’s new found mating forced him into taking a good look into his life. He isn’t sure he wants a mate, but fate may have other ideas.
Willow Delton is a skinny, bakery owner – the type most woman love to hate. Being without family, she finds herself alone to the Greek god with green eyes who saunters into her bakery every morning. Her desire to follow him, to be with him, overrides every rational sense she possessed.
Jasper and Willow are drawn together, despite every nuisance that works against them. But evil beyond even Jasper’s supernatural compensation will make war against him, by going after the only thing in his eternal life he desires – Willow. Is Willow’s heart enough to overcome Jasper’s soul to save her life? A fight he cannot win, but to save her life – he must.
