Re: May the Best Man Win (4:52pm August 4, 2016):

This sounds like a great read and I think it will be very interesting to find out
what brings Jase & Emily together and in love. I would love to read how their
story unfolds.

Re: His Prairie Sweetheart (4:48pm August 4, 2016):

I love cowboy heros!!! If only I could meet one in real life...

Re: Grilling the Subject (4:47pm August 4, 2016):

My favorite recipes would have to be basic and simple things - and of them
all I would probably have to say my favorite and easiest is cereal & milk. =/

Re: Gone Too Deep (4:46pm August 4, 2016):

I think they are all great reasons, but I would have to say that #1 is probably
the best reason of them all. Also, I wanted to note that I haven't actually read
a book yet where #2 is true. If I have ever read, it was always the female, not
the male, so I think this would be interesting to check out.

Re: The Theory of Deviance (4:45pm August 4, 2016):

Wow, you really can learn a lot from someones Facebook profile!

Re: A Scandalous Adventure (4:44pm August 4, 2016):

My favorite adventures include hiking or reading a great book on the beach!

Re: Trouble Walks In (4:43pm August 4, 2016):

Currently I have Sins of A Duke.

Re: Triple Score (2:50pm July 25, 2016):

I can't think of anything off the top of my head, however I do think that
dialogue really makes stories move forward.

Re: The California Gold Rush Romance Collection (2:50pm July 25, 2016):

I love reading books with dogs as companions and protectors. almost as if
they are a true human in the family. The best one I can think of off the to of
my head is The Guardian.

Re: Torn (2:48pm July 25, 2016):

I look forward to reading the Girl on the Train.

Re: Racing To You (1:55pm July 25, 2016):

I would have said only chocolate, however after reading your list I realized
that ALL of those are also my guilty pleasures.

Re: Fire Danger (1:54pm July 25, 2016):

I like to read about shifters, however I find this interesting too and may have
to check it out!

Re: Heart of Steel (1:53pm July 25, 2016):

I really like the 2 girls from 2 broke girls. I think they have great chemistry
and their differing personalities really complement one another.

Re: In The Line Of Fire (11:51pm July 19, 2016):

I love the ocean and mountains. So I'm pretty much okay going anywhere
that has some element of nature!

Re: Cowboy Player (11:50pm July 19, 2016):

This is going to sound crazy - but I actually don't eat steak.

Re: Live and Let Psi (11:50pm July 19, 2016):


Re: The Reason (11:50pm July 19, 2016):

I'd offer prayer.

Re: Portrait of a Conspiracy (11:49pm July 19, 2016):

It sounds risky and dangerous in a way, but also sort of awesome! I'm not
sure I would be the type of woman to join a secret society though.

Re: Daughters of the Bride (11:49pm July 19, 2016):

I can't wait to read it!

Re: Rose Bride (11:48pm July 19, 2016):

totally sexy!!

Re: If the Earl Only Knew (10:25am July 12, 2016):

I love the first kisses that come on unexpectedly!

Re: A Gift for Guile (10:24am July 12, 2016):

Wow, I'd have to say every man in every romance novel I have read so far!

Re: Billionaire in Wolf's Clothing (10:22am July 12, 2016):

He sounds very sexy and kind of perfect!

Re: Lark (10:21am July 12, 2016):

Lazy summer days spent reading or at the beach!

Re: Almost Like Being in Love (7:42am June 29, 2016):

In movies and romance novels....haha!

Re: Into the Whirlwind (11:27am June 10, 2016):

I love your books - especially Luke's story! Can't wait to read more!

Re: To Love A Wolf (11:26am June 10, 2016):

Anything superhero related

Re: Vendetta (11:18am June 10, 2016):

I have a friend that refers to herself as Vendetta so I found the title of this
book very interesting in itself!

Re: Jordan's Return (11:17am June 10, 2016):

Anywhere warm, tropical and relaxing!

Re: The Bones Will Speak (11:16am June 10, 2016):

I can't wait to read this book, as it is your first I am sure it will be very

Re: Rock Steady (11:15am June 10, 2016):

This book sounds like a great read and I can't wait to check it ou!

Re: Wanting More (6:34pm April 4, 2016):

Happy Birthday Jessica!! I love spending my birthday with my family and
loved ones!

Re: The House by the Lake (6:31pm April 4, 2016):

I don't have any mysteries to solve! However, I do love reading mysteries!

Re: Tide And Tempest (6:29pm April 4, 2016):

I would love to go backpacking through Europe!

Re: The Real Thing (4:01pm March 21, 2016):

My héros are my parents. Why? Because they are simply amazing, selfless
and hardworking. They do everything and anything they can for me, and I
respect them and look up to them for everything they do!

Re: Romancing the Ranger (4:00pm March 21, 2016):

Music really gets me going and moving! I love to listen to music when I am
cleaning because it is upbeat and makes the boring and annoying tasks
slightly more fun!

Re: Miriam (3:59pm March 21, 2016):

I find myself very lucky to say that the Miriam I know is my mother. She is so
full of love, and so selfless. She is always giving to others, myself included.

Re: A Father's Second Chance (4:53pm March 4, 2016):

I love reading romances! They are my favorites!! I am open to reading all
kinds of romance novels, regardless of the time period or age, etc. However,
one thing that does appeal to me is a happy ending for the lovers. I enjoy the
suspense and drama throughout the story, but I always prefer books where
the lovers unite as one in the ending.

Re: London Tides (4:52pm March 4, 2016):

I hope to get drawn into the book so much so that I am unable to put it
down. I love reading about romances and love stories, with no preference to
age, time period, or circumstance. I really enjoy a happy ending for the

Re: Island Hope (4:51pm March 4, 2016):

My favorite héros are those that are selfless and honorable, with integrity,
honestly and loyalty. Someone that I can truly look up to due to the good
choices and morals they have.

Re: Ashes in the Sky (4:47pm March 4, 2016):

I look for honesty and integrity, loyalty and good manners. Someone down to
earth and someone that you can look up to as a good role model.

Re: Her Fierce Warror (4:45pm March 4, 2016):

I would have to say anywhere with family and friends, as that is what makes
the occasion so special. However, a family style bbq on a nice summer day
in my backyard would be perfect!

Re: My Tempting Highlander (4:44pm March 4, 2016):

I think I would love to visit ancient Egypt, and see the building of the
pyramids! I would even love to see the pyramids today as they are, but
watching something so massive and beautiful being built back then without
the technologies we have today would be really cool to see.

Re: One Texas Cowboy Too Many (3:12pm March 2, 2016):

Ahhh!!! This is great!!! lololol I would love to see what the rest of the story
has there!

Re: MacLaren's Bride (5:41pm March 1, 2016):

I look forward to reading your book and learning more about Meg and
hopefully Alec's love story!

Re: His to Keep (5:40pm March 1, 2016):

Unfortunately, I have never been to Vegas. However, if I ever do get a chance
to go I would love to visit the casino and watch some live plays too!

Re: Jump Cut (11:04am February 29, 2016):

I think it is interesting that you choose to leave out those characteristics,
which is often found in almost all books I have read. I would like to see how
this forms my opinion of the characters when I reading.

Re: An Amish Market (9:02pm February 27, 2016):

I really love my local towns farmers market. They do it every Friday during
the season, and I know a part of the profits goes towards things that the
town needs - whether it be for the schools, firefighters, senior center, etc. It's
nice to shop local and know you are giving back.

Re: Thirty Nights (8:59pm February 27, 2016):

I am intrigued by him. He seems like a man with a big heart.

Re: An Amish Market (11:15am February 26, 2016):

I think honestly and loyalty are very important in true love, along with respect
for one another.

Re: Temper (5:15pm February 25, 2016):

I enjoy just walking away and clearing my mind. Doing something to relax,
whether it be read a book or just call a friend so that I can take my mind of
things and come back later with a clear head and maybe a new way of
looking at things!

Re: An Amish Market (12:18pm February 24, 2016):

I would love to read your book! I love learning about different cultures and
people, and I always enjoyed my trips to PA where I learned some bits and
pieces about the Amish lifestyle.

Re: Chicken Soup & Homicide (12:17pm February 24, 2016):

The strangest things I have observed include baby octopus and also conch. I
was too scared to try either though. I just couldn't do it. Especially the baby
octopus, with all of its arms - it was just too weird!

Re: True Blue Seals: Zak (12:14pm February 24, 2016):

NO, they are never on vacation! I feel like they are always on duty in the back
of their minds/hearts.

Re: Highland Spitfire (12:13pm February 24, 2016):

I have not read many books that have taken place in Scotland. Although, I
really enjoyed the movie Braveheart which was set in Scotland.

Re: The End of the World (11:29am February 22, 2016):

I always dream of being away on a nice and peaceful beach with a super hot

Re: An Amish Market (11:24am February 22, 2016):

I think it is so kind of you to share your secrets and hints/tips for others out
there looking to get published. Thank you!

Re: To Catch a Rake (12:31pm February 19, 2016):

I'm always into the rakes. But like others have mentioned, they have to
have a good heart and genuinely be a good person that made bad choices
in their past. Not just someone that is rude and uncaring, selfish or plain

Re: The Bride Wore Starlight (12:29pm February 19, 2016):

I love when animals are part of the story - especially horses and dogs.
Dogs are just so loyal, and its like they have a 6th sense. They just always
seem to know what is going on and are there when you need them at the
right time.

Re: How To Wrangle A Cowboy (1:39pm February 14, 2016):

I have no idea how my parents or grandparents met. However, from
observing my parents it was always easy to see that they truly loved each
other. I think that is the most important part. I am going to ask them today
how they met!

Re: Forever Dusk (1:36pm February 14, 2016):

I feel like hate is the strongest emotion. Hate makes people do unthinkable
things....we all see it on the news everyday.

Re: To the Stars (1:30pm February 14, 2016):

I believe this will be a great book to read, especially with the topic of
violence, which is often taboo and not really written about openly.

Re: The Cowboy's Bride Collection (1:25pm February 14, 2016):

My hero growing up was my dad. He always worked so hard to provide for
our family and I thought that was admirable.

Re: Always Watching (1:24pm February 14, 2016):

My favorite things include reading, beaches, warm weather, and being
around my family and loved ones.

Re: For Cheddar or Worse (10:08am February 10, 2016):

I love NYC. It is so alive and there are so many different things to do, foods
to eat, and places to see!

Re: Into the Fury (10:07am February 10, 2016):

the great gatsby

Re: Thin Ice (3:25pm February 7, 2016):

One of my favorite things lately has been to try new foods from all kinds of
different countries. Luckily, my SO does also enjoy trying new things so it is
awesome that we can do it together. It's cool because sometimes we will
find something new that we both love....whereas other times we have a story
of how gross something tasted! lol

Re: A Father's Second Chance (3:24pm February 7, 2016):

I am passionate about my education and also just doing little things in life to
have fun, relax and enjoy myself. I just stay focused to keep towards my

Re: SEAL Wolf in Too Deep (9:50am February 4, 2016):

I would have to say that you have to use a leash or something because the
wolf might not be trained and can be dangerous. Atleast until you can assess
the wolfs mindset.

Re: Until I'm Yours (12:53pm February 3, 2016):

I know this is so cliche but I would have to say Edward Cullen from Twlight!

Re: Love Walks In (12:51pm February 3, 2016):

Hmmm....the excerpt doesn't really give us any hints as to what is in the
suitcase! I believe she is coming in to retrieve it because it rightfully belongs
to her. However, I am very curious as to what is inside of it now!

Re: Will's True Wish (12:49pm February 3, 2016):

I love that they are always loyal and that they are so smart and can be
trained to do so many different things - like dogs that are trained to smell
certain scents, or dogs that are trained to help in farming, or dogs that are
trained to offer protection, or simply - a dog that is trained with love and
compassion as a family pet!

Re: By Break of Day (12:48pm February 3, 2016):

I just love being able to follow characters from one story to the next. I feel
move invested and involved in the characters. It is almost like watching a tv
show (book series) vs watching a movie (stand alone book).

Re: Enchantment of a Highlander (6:57pm January 22, 2016):

I am working hard towards finishing school!

Re: Heir To The Duke (6:57pm January 22, 2016):

I'm great at scaring my mom, but unfortunately only her so I probably don't
have that much skill! Lol

Re: Remaking Ryan (6:56pm January 22, 2016):

The best part to me is driving through the countryside and seeing the
scenery. The worst is having to pre!

Re: Montana Wild (6:53pm January 22, 2016):

The perfect man

Re: Linny?s Sweet Dream List (7:04pm January 19, 2016):

I think honesty would be what I'm looking for in my happily ever after!

Re: Taken by the Highlander (7:19pm December 30, 2015):

I love to go to NYC!

Re: Divorced, Desperate, and Daring (12:52pm December 22, 2015):

I am thinking knives!

Re: Justified (5:22pm December 18, 2015):

My favorite is making homemake cookies from scratch. The women in my
family always get together and literally make dozens upon dozens. We wrap
them up nicely and give each family/friend/loved one a dozen of cookies
right before christmas. It means a lot because we get to spend time together
making something delicious that we then get to share with others. I
especially will enjoy it this year because I have been so busy and haven't
had much time to spend with the women in my family lately so it will be nice
to reconnect.

Re: Slavemakers (5:20pm December 18, 2015):

I don't actually have a favorite science fiction novel.

Re: Love, Dogs And Other Catastrophes (11:38am December 16, 2015):

I look forward to a peaceful new year filled with love and joy for all, void of
the terrible things we have seen this year.

Re: Slamdunked by Love (11:36am December 16, 2015):

I would have to say Alicia Keys Teenage Love Affair - always brings me back
to my high school memories!

Re: Shame of Thrones (11:35am December 16, 2015):

This sounds like a book that I would truly enjoy reading! Clementine is an
adorable name too! I wonder if Sebastian will return home because of

Re: True Deceptions (11:33am December 16, 2015):

I love reading, however I don't actually have any visions of stories in my
head. I guess I am just not that talented. However, everytime I read a book I
get sad at the end because I am so drawn into the characters and their lives
that I hate that I do not know what happens next. That is one of the reasons
why I enjoy reading books that come in series. I will usually get over it once I
am a few chapters into my next book, and invested into new characters!

Re: A Skeleton in the Family (12:26pm December 15, 2015):

This sounds like a nice mystery read!

Re: Pouncing on Murder (12:26pm December 15, 2015):

I love reading books that take place abroad since it allows me to learn bits
and pieces about different places and cultures.

Re: Carry Me Home (12:25pm December 15, 2015):

Oh, the Hemsworth brothers are probably also my favorites from Australia.
They are just gorgeous!!

Re: The Royal Conquest (12:24pm December 15, 2015):

I believe in love at first sight, but I think you also need time to get to know
someone too.

Re: Target Engaged (7:02pm December 1, 2015):

I would have to say it was the 3rd Harry Potter book, only because I waited
outside all night in line for the store to open to get my copy!

Re: Here Today, Gone Tamale (7:01pm December 1, 2015):

I would love to read about Josie & Ryan! Sounds like sparks are in the air!

Re: My Soul to Keep (2:17pm November 19, 2015):

I don't normally re-read books, mainly because there are so many other new
books that I want to read too! But The Great Gatsby is one that I find myself
coming back to often.

Re: Chance of a Lifetime (2:16pm November 19, 2015):

I haven't actually ever sat down and written a list, so no, I don't really have a
list. However, I would love to travel the world!

Re: Resist (2:16pm November 19, 2015):

Cures are a big thing that I think the entire universe could really utilize. One
big one for me specifically would be a cure for diabetes, especially since so
many people have that in today's society.
Another cool thing would be cars that could fly!

Re: Once Upon a Power Play (2:14pm November 19, 2015):

I love their dedication and ability to work well in teams. Of course, I also love
the hotness of their bodies due to all that hard work they put in!

Re: Murder Under the Mistletoe (2:13pm November 19, 2015):

Chocolate, bubble baths, cheesy romance books, hot cocoa, shopping...lol

Re: Easton's Everything (2:12pm November 19, 2015):

I like to read both. I wouldn't choose not to read a book just because it was
a stand alone or just because it was a series. However, I do enjoy series
because I get to follow the characters and watch their stories develop from
book to book. I already feel invested into the characters when I read the first
book so sometimes it is hard to just forget about them in stand alone books.

Re: Dark Turns (2:10pm November 19, 2015):

I don't really venture out of my comfort zone. I like to stay where I feel safe.

Re: A Gentleman for All Seasons (2:26pm November 12, 2015):

I love romances and like that these add a tad of history and a different
lifestyle from the ones that we live now.

Re: Hidden Impact (9:00pm November 9, 2015):

My mom's handmade sweets/desserts!!!! SO DELICIOUS!!!

Re: Dangerous Tidings (9:00pm November 9, 2015):

I love to visit the tree and go ice-skating in NYC.

Re: When Fall Fades (8:59pm November 9, 2015):

I always try to remain optimistic and think of the good - see the glass half
full! At the same time though, I also like to think things through and have a
solid plan and also back up plan just in case. I don't think I have any super
powers - unless organization counts!

Re: Blowback (3:55pm November 5, 2015):

I like to read novels that take place in actual, real towns. Something that I
can look up and google, or possibly even visit one day. Other than that
though, I sort of like reading to escape from my reality.

Re: Viking Warrior Rising (3:53pm November 5, 2015):

I am actually new to the whole viking history and mythology thing.

Re: Recipes For Love And Murder (3:53pm November 5, 2015):

My favorites would have to be healthy recipes that are fast and easy to

Re: Stop at Nothing (3:52pm November 5, 2015):

I love second chance romances. It is nice to see people reconnect after time
has passed and find their love again.

Re: Forever And Always (3:51pm November 5, 2015):

I love reading trilogies, and cowboys are always awesome! I look forward to
checking this out.

Re: A Cowboy Firefighter For Christmas (7:30pm October 7, 2015):

I love finding first editions!

Re: First Season / Bride to Be (7:29pm October 7, 2015):

I feel like they often come in the form of the elderly.

Re: Thunder On The Plains (7:28pm October 7, 2015):

I am still working on that.

Re: Dark Before the Rising Sun (7:28pm October 7, 2015):

Yes, I love romances!

Re: This Love of Mine (7:27pm October 7, 2015):

No, I tend to stick to my comfort zone.

Re: Shooting Dirty (12:41pm September 24, 2015):

I def prefer good guys !

Re: The Bones Will Speak (11:24am August 14, 2015):

I love to see romance with my thrillers! I am a hopeless romantic and I
probably wouldn't read a thriller novel if it didn't have a romantic storyline.

Re: Darkest Misery (11:23am August 14, 2015):

I think the best part is that the woman is powerful - it's a difference from the
normal damsel in distress romance books (although I enjoy reading those
too!). It's nice to see a different type of female character.

Re: Penalty Play (11:22am August 14, 2015):

I like a story that is easy to read in which I can attach to the characters
storyline. I think being able to relate, or atleast understand the characters
point of view, is important for me to connect with a book.

Re: The Great Estate (11:21am August 14, 2015):

I love reading new books (and sometimes re-reading old books too!) and
watching my favorite TV shows. Those are about the only things I have spare
time for these days.

Re: Merger of the Heart (11:19am August 14, 2015):

Lucky for me, no picky eaters! We are vegetarians though, so eating out can
be difficult at certain restaurants.

Re: Agent N6: Dylan (1:02am August 6, 2015):

Hmm....this is a hard one! Sometimes the face on a cover can draw me into
picking up the book, but then I also like to use my imagination too! I guess
since it is just the cover of the book, and only 1 face, I wouldn't be too
bothered. However, I NEVER watch book turned into movies first! It always
ruins my reading and imagination process. I prefer to read the book first,
even if I have to stay up all night before the movie premieres!

Re: The Assassins of Altis (1:00am August 6, 2015):

One of my favorites in which I believe the characters were kept real is The Great
Gatsby! It's a great classic that I think everyone should read once if they have the
chance to.

Re: Red Blooded (12:59pm August 6, 2015):

hahaha.....ahhh!!! A substitute teacher in high school!!

Re: Fudging the Books (12:58pm August 6, 2015):

I love visiting the Caribbean!! The beaches are so clean and beautiful, and it is
always beach weather!! I also enjoy the beautiful nature and hiking. It's so
peaceful and calming to be down there!

Re: Midnight on the Mississippi (12:57pm August 6, 2015):

I haven't really given this much thought...I can't really think of a specific town
name. I would have to say I'd prefer somewhere down south where it is warm
year round (no snow, and no shoveling!!). I'd also probably enjoy somewhere
close to the beach, even if it isn't walking distance atleast in a reasonable driving

Re: A Peach of a Pair (12:55pm August 6, 2015):

Hmm...I'd have to say a nice, cold bottle of water on a hot day...or a hot cocoa
with marshmellows on a chilly day!

Re: A Radical Arrangement (12:54pm August 6, 2015):

I enjoy volunteering my time at my local soup kitchen. It is really sad that some
people do not have food, which is like a total necessity for life. So I find it
enjoyable to be able to help provide them with a hot meal to hopefully make
their day go a little bit better!

Re: Caged (12:51pm July 15, 2015):

Bound is my favorite!!

Re: The Empress Game (12:49pm July 15, 2015):

Unfortunately, I do not have one!!

Re: Once And Again (12:48pm July 15, 2015):

My secret place isn't so secret - it's my bed! hahaha I love going in there when I
just need to getaway!

Re: Murder.com (12:34pm July 15, 2015):

I would have to choose Stephanie Plum & Ranger!

Re: Center of Gravity (12:32pm July 15, 2015):

I am the biggest book nerd ever! I can't even begin to tell you how many nights I
have spent awake reading an amazing book that I just couldn't put down! I love
to read. It is relaxing and so much more fun than watching TV.

Re: Never Resist A Rake (6:56pm June 12, 2015):

A delicious dinner, at home our out, and maybe a movie!

Re: Shadow Fires (6:55pm June 12, 2015):

I love reading stories were opposites attract - my favorites include the great
gatsby and the notebook! So romantic!!

Re: Five Brides (6:53pm June 12, 2015):

I don't think so! I feel like I would need people I can trust around me to give me
advice I can trust.

Re: Alive (6:52pm June 12, 2015):

Any kind of red wine!

Re: Murder Freshly Baked (6:52pm June 12, 2015):

I love twists and turns that come up throughout the story from the main
characters past.

Re: Against the Tide (6:51pm June 12, 2015):

It is hard to choose just one, but I guess maybe Rafe!

Re: Champion of Entean (6:49pm June 12, 2015):
