Stephanie's Favorite Summer Recipe
I like to keep it simple with blue-raspberry vodka and lemonade with LOADS of ice. I could drink these all day on a hot summer day!!

Stephanie's Summer Tip:
If you have dogs, take a giant tupperware bowl, fill it with chicken broth and dog toys and freeze it. When it's fully solid, take it outside and let your dogs go to town on it! They get a nice cool treat and a bunch of other fun surprises while eating away at the yummy ice. 

Stephanie's Favorite Summer Memories
I have to say it was when we were younger, my mother would take my sister and I to all the nearest lakes in the state to go swimming. We had so much fun diving off piers and meeting new friends and having picnics on the beach. I really miss those days!! 

E.Lo's Favorite Summer Recipe
I live in the land of watermelons, we even have a watermelon festival every summer around my birthday so naturally my favorite summer recipe is a good ol' spiked melon.
All you need is a watermelon that's about 10 lbs, and your favorite bottle of vodka. 
Cut a hole in the melon large enough to fit a funnel and start pouring. Pour enough that you are not overflowing the melon and let it rest for a bit, about 3 hours or so and repeat the process till you have enough vodka to your liking. Pop that melon in the fridge overnight, slice it up and enjoy! 

E.Lo's Favorite Summer Tip
When you know that you and the fam are going out for the day, pop a few wet washcloths or sponges in a ziplock bag in the freezer the night before. The next day, put them in your bag or cooler and you will have something to help you and your gang to cool off with. 

E.Lo's Favorite Summer Memory
As a kid growing up in the country in the Heart (and heat) of Texas we were outside from sunup till sundown. We had several tanks on our property that we usually found ourselves sneaking off to. We had a rope tied to a tree for a good ol' rope swing, it's a miracle that none of us broke our necks on that We would listed for our Grandmothers call and when we got to the house she would "rinse us off with the hose", because of course none of us were smart enough to change into our swim suits. Our evenings would be spent catching lightning bugs and putting them in a mason jar while eating homemade ice cream. I sure miss being a kid sometimes.

Synopsis A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story. The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.

Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure th…
