Re: Trouble In The Tarot (10:39am March 16, 2013):

I definitely like humor in my cozies! I also like a little
paranormal element as well.

Re: The Geek Girl And The Scandous Earl (10:29am March 15, 2013):

How exciting! It must be so much fun to see your books on the

Re: Her Knight's Quest (10:28am March 15, 2013):

I love when second characters get their own books - It makes
the story arc in the series so much more interesting.

Re: Lord Of Darkness (9:13am March 4, 2013):

I love this series - can't wait to read the latest

Re: Wait Until Dark (12:26pm February 28, 2013):

I like that they have conflicting definitions of home - I can
see how that unrecognized difference would create a lot of
tension. Thanks for sharing!

Re: The Eldritch Conspiracy (11:35am February 12, 2013):

I did like the Harry Potter movie adaptations, although I felt
some were better than others. I also liked the Colin Firth BBC
version of Pride and Prejudice. Those are the rare exceptions,
however. Usually I'm disappointed by movie adaptations.

Re: Lady Eve's Indiscretion (12:43pm February 7, 2013):

This is definitely good advice - that's how I get myself to
exercise. If I'm not in the mood I'll say I'm only going to
work out for 15 minutes, but once I get going, I usually go
the entire time.

Re: Beyond Valor (11:37am February 2, 2013):

I think my favorite military romances are the KGI series by
Maya Banks. Lots of fun!

Re: Murder for the Halibut (5:00pm January 27, 2013):

I'm very insecure about tax season, lol! Don't think I have to
explain that one.

Re: Real Men Don\'t Break Hearts (10:43am January 24, 2013):

This sounds so cute, and the cover is absolutely adorable!

Re: Kiss Of The Betrayer (12:31pm January 12, 2013):

I like the idea of taking walks to get out of the house! My
dog is older and has to go out a LOT, which can be annoying,
but I keep reminding myself that a few extra steps go a long
way. Good luck!

Re: In His Brother's Place (4:37pm January 5, 2013):

I like contemporaries and historicals, but I favor contemporaries these

Re: Prince Of Power (11:33am January 3, 2013):

The cover does have to work. I've definitely passed over books
just because the cover didn't look professionally done.

Re: A Taste Of Ice (1:03pm January 1, 2013):

I like hearing about urban settings that aren't the typical
"big" cities. I like Southern cities especially.

Re: A Seal At Heart (12:22pm December 14, 2012):

Definitely my family, although I have a great group of friends
that goes out for Ladies' Night every Thursday!

Re: Just A Cowboy And His Baby (12:21pm December 14, 2012):

Oh I definitely like some arguing between the hero and
heroine! That can create some great sexual tension!

Re: Fortune's Hero (12:21pm December 14, 2012):

Definitely more cures for diseases would be great, although I
like the idea of living under the ocean!

Re: One Night with a Hero (12:29pm October 28, 2012):

Who can resist a man in uniform?? Their integrity and honor only makes the package that much more appeaing.

Re: Night Thief (12:20pm October 25, 2012):

I like some accurate history! I think it helps draw the reader in!

Re: Tempting the Best Man (8:40am October 24, 2012):

I definitely enjoy reading about alpha males, but like Sally, I agree that they're more appealing in fiction than real life, lol!

Re: Losing Control (8:39am October 24, 2012):

I do like linked series. Lately I've enjoyed Sarah Morgan's Ferrara series.

Re: Run The Risk (11:14am October 11, 2012):

I like a lot of Christina Dodd's contemporary romances, like Danger in a Red Dress, because the heroes always do something REALLY dumb. As long as there's lots of groveling later, I'm okay with that!

Re: In the Line of Duty (8:26am August 26, 2012):

I definitely prefer a manly man, but he needs to be one who isn't threatened by a strong woman!

Re: Relentless Pursuit (9:53am August 20, 2012):

Adrienne's books are so funny! Billy is a hoot and I can't wait to read his book!

Re: Primal Possession (10:28am August 15, 2012):

I like strong heroines, but they don't always have to be physically strong -
as long as they're smart and not pushovers, I'm a fan!

Re: Deep Blue (11:58am August 14, 2012):

I've never been on a cruise, but I like the idea of one! I have to admit, though, that the buffets would probably do me in. Too much food!

Re: Seducing Cinderella (12:53pm August 13, 2012):

I like the friends to lovers and enemies to lovers tropes!

Re: Hell On Wheels (12:45pm August 10, 2012):

Motorcycle and military man - sounds great to me!

Re: The Last Victim (12:53pm August 5, 2012):

Good advice! It's really hard to silence those outside voices and listen to your inner voice sometimes, but the final product will be better for it!

Re: Married By Midnight (7:35am August 3, 2012):

I usually don't wait, unless I know that an
author tends to end books with
cliffhangers *cough* Outlander! *cough*
That's really the only time I'll postpone
reading a series.

Re: The Princess and the Outlaw (12:58pm July 1, 2012):

To add a little fun I like to have a girls' night out with friends!

Re: The Marriage Bargain (7:05pm June 15, 2012):

I'm definitely a sucker for a happy ending, although I'm also okay with a Happy For Now!

Re: Chase Me (12:31pm June 7, 2012):

Oh Roarke, OF COURSE! Plus, I have a soft spot for "Bluebell" in Nalini Singh's Guild Hunters series.

Re: Seeker Of Shadows (11:03am May 31, 2012):

I picked up Girl with the Dragon Tattoo while waiting for an oil change once, and I"m so glad I did! Normally I wouldn't have read it, because I'm a wuss and don't like thrillers, but it was excellent.

Re: The Rebel Rancher (3:50pm May 26, 2012):

I'm glad to hear that there still are heroes around today! Cowboy heroes are even better.

Re: Where There's Smoke (11:42am May 25, 2012):

This is an interesting premise - I like the idea of having to steal a soul "or else". Sounds great!

Re: The Courtesan's Lover (11:33am May 17, 2012):

Interesting! Sounds like there could be some suspenseful moments if the Duke decides to chase her down!

Re: Kiss Of The Goblin Prince (1:03pm May 11, 2012):

Creepy! I like the twist of "angel's wings" that are actually not.

Re: Royal Street (10:57am May 7, 2012):

I love the idea of pirates, but I always think that the reality would fall short. Sure, Johnny Depp is hot, but in the movies he always looks like he hasn't showered in ages, and that's just gross, lol. Now, an undead pirate might be different...

Re: Under His Protection (12:32pm April 29, 2012):

It really depends on the Alpha hero! If he's a strong character who appreciates a strong female partner, I find that very appealing. I'm not as interested in reading about Alpha males who like submisssive females, though.

Re: Somebody To Love (11:13am April 24, 2012):

I had to start over when my husband got a new
job, and it was tough, but also fun. I love going
new places & meeting new people but hate
leaving old friends.

Re: Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire (11:36am April 22, 2012):

I love category romances, too! I do like Alpha heroes, but I prefer when they like Alpha heroines as well!

Re: Trouble Me (11:29am April 9, 2012):

That's the problem with one night stands - it never ends like you think it will, lol! This sounds like a great set-up for Rob to fall hard!

Re: Texas Baby Sanctuary (1:53pm March 27, 2012):


Re: Assassins In Love (11:17am March 22, 2012):

I'm a closet trekkie, so romance in space sounds great to me!

Re: Sticks and Stones (9:32am March 21, 2012):

I'm not sure who I would write a book with - possibly my sister because she's so creative! I would NOT write one with my husband. There'd be blood on the walls for sure.

Re: Cassie's Grand Plan (1:04pm March 20, 2012):

I come from a big town and have only recently started living in a small one. I like it a lot, but I do wish there were more restaurants and shops! A big positive is that the shops that are in town are great about ordering something for you if you ask them. They have a real vested interest in customer service!

Re: A Sliver Of Shadow (11:00am February 29, 2012):

I've never believed in instant love. I think you can be attracted to someone in an instant, but for real love to exist it has to develop over time.

Re: Courting His Favorite Nurse (1:32pm February 21, 2012):

I've never been in a hot air balloon, but every summer there's a hot air balloon festival in my town. It's so neat to seem them light up at night!

Re: Darkest Highlander (12:38pm February 6, 2012):

I do like mixing magic with my historical romance! Depending on how far in the past it is, the time period can seem magical on its own.

Re: Double Dare (1:08pm January 27, 2012):

Loggers is a new one for me as well! I have to admit I'm a sucker for a man in uniform - firefighters, military or police!

Re: Fever (9:05am January 25, 2012):

I've had VERY indifferent success with New Year's Resolutions, so on that front my goal setting skills are practically nil. I do best when I have a support group or have to report to someone by a certain date.

Re: Banshee Charmer (1:10pm January 22, 2012):

I like strong alpha heroes who aren't afraid to let the heroine play to her strengths as well!

Re: The Fallen Queen (12:41pm January 20, 2012):

I've been reading several fallen angel PNR and UF series lately, and I've really enjoyed them. It does seem like all of a sudden they're very popular, but given the lengthy publishing process, that's to be expected. There are still lots fewer books about angels than vampires or werewolves, so there's definitely lots of room for more!

Re: The Angel Of Blythe Hall (1:45pm December 30, 2011):

My unexpected gift was my Kindle. My husband claims it was the best and the worst gift he's ever given me, since I now spend way more time reading than I did before!
