Re: Deadly Secrets, Loving Lies (8:16pm May 18, 2012):

I'd pick Tony Stark because he has such a quick wit to go with his brains & those beautiful eyes.

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (12:17pm March 16, 2012):

I thought hot & sexy - because the SEALS have been in the news a lot. And the cover is fabulous. Thanks for the contest.

Re: Dire Needs (7:46pm March 5, 2012):

I like series and stand-alones. If the series is short, like a trilogy, I like to wait until I can get them all & read one after another. But sometimes I just can't wait...

Re: Clobbered By Camembert (1:07pm February 25, 2012):

I just ate lunch & you still made me hungry with these descriptions. Like others, I love the titles & would love to win the books - even if it means more time on the treadmill.

Re: Wedded In Scandal (2:39pm December 22, 2011):

I spend time on my computer entering contests. I try to quit but then I win a little something. Just a small prize revs up the entry addiction.

Re: The Earl's Mistaken Bride (10:26am November 30, 2011):

Lemon is one of my favorite flavors. I'd rather have it than chocolate. I also love the sound of this book. I'd like to win it. Thanks for the contest.

Re: The Wedding Affair (5:37pm September 6, 2011):

Loved the house. That safe looks just like one my great-grandfather had at his house. Thanks for the contest & sharing your treasure.

Re: Bel Air (5:41pm September 4, 2011):

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Homemade strawberry and homemade peach are my favorites.

Re: Redeeming The Rogue (11:40am August 30, 2011):

I always loved Wild Wild West. I thought is was only fair when Artemus got some female attention. I liked Pam's idea of a short story if you don't have time/material for an entire book. If you make it a free short e-book, it could also serve as a promotion of your other work.

Re: The Landlord's Black-Eyed Daughter (2:40pm August 10, 2011):

I love happy endings. There's enough bad news in the real world.

Re: Just One Season In London (4:59pm July 11, 2011):

I'd like to win this book and meet Sophie. Thanks for the contest.

Re: Money Shot (12:51pm June 10, 2011):

I tend to be a bit of a dialogue junkie too. Sometimes I read a book for the second time & wonder how I missed an important setting or wonderfully lyrical description the first time. So I'll slow down for the next book(s) but eventually I'll be speeding again. Apologies to all authors.

Re: Frostbound (5:44pm June 7, 2011):

Haven't read your books but this looks like a good introduction. Thanks for the contest.

Re: A Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your Man (1:31pm May 26, 2011):

I think you're seducing me into a life of sin. Can't wait to read the book.

Re: Dirty (4:51pm May 22, 2011):

I haven't read any self-published books but I've seen that several authors are re-publishing books to which they've regained the rights. This if the first newly published book to catch my attention. Good luck on our endeavor!

Re: SEALed Forever (8:54pm May 20, 2011):

Wonderful post to honor the Seals. I'd love to read this book. Seals, abandoned baby, NC connection - what more could I want?

Re: Total Abandon (11:20am April 30, 2011):

I'm a spreadsheet keeper also. I've just gotten my Kindle so there's not much on it - yet. I think that will change for my beach vacation. But I do like the feel of print books and I think they're easier to skim.

Re: Hidden Embers (6:48pm April 22, 2011):

I love the summer. My family has a house on a lake and summer means swimming, boating and waterskiing. There's always a trip to the beach. Summer also reminds me of childhood - no school, playing outside every day and only wearing shoes on Sunday.

Re: Tangled Threads (7:32pm April 18, 2011):

I agree with your calls on Hawaii Five-O and Burn Notice. I'll add in Castle and White Collar.

Re: A Marriage of Inconvenience (1:10pm April 16, 2011):

I'm not a cotrol freak though sometimes I'd like to be. For characters, I thought of Christina Dodd's book Tongue in Chic. It's all about controlled/controlling man meets free-spirited woman. I'd like to read your take on the subject.

Re: Drip Dead (8:29pm April 14, 2011):

Middle schoolers can be a scary group. Glad you had the courage to meet them & find out how great they can be. Would love to win your books. Plumbing - a new adventure....

Re: Demons Are A Girl's Best Friend (6:48pm April 12, 2011):

I like witch books because witches have the power to control events. Some days I wish I had those magical powers. And for some reason, I like stories that contain humor about snarky teenagers vs powerful adults. So your new book looks really interesting to me.

Re: Collision Course (5:42pm April 8, 2011):

I'm going to date myself too. I watched the original Star Trek episodes wthen they aired the first time. I was hooked on episodes of Doctor Who. Don't know which number he was but he had a really long scarf. I think I started reading sci-fi with Andre Norton. I'll watch or read almost anything in the genre.

Re: The Shadow Guard (8:54pm April 5, 2011):

I'll have to join the group that wants to meet Roarke. I can see the dark hair & blue eyes. But I want to know what the face of a "fallen angel" looks like.

Re: The Return Of Black Douglas (5:37pm April 1, 2011):

The information on the Gaels & Celts was very interesting. I probably won't remember the details in a few days but the general picture will linger. Now what was that remark about the wrong assumption of kilt wearing all about?

Re: A Lot Like Love (8:58pm March 24, 2011):

Similar a prior comment, I like to read on the back deck, in a lounge chair with some sweet ice tea. In the peaceful woods I hear birds and occasionally spot deer. I'll take either type of romance if the story is good.

Re: Hummingbird Lake (4:57pm March 22, 2011):

Reading blogs do bring new books to my notice. "Hearing" what the author says about the book & how it is said make a difference to me. Covers also can give a sense of the book. I like all these elements in your new book and would like to read it.

Re: Highland Heat (9:34pm March 21, 2011):

Sounds like a good book and I can't resist a man in kilt. Please enter me in your contest.

Re: An Unlikely Countess (6:59pm March 19, 2011):

I like the glitz and glamour. I sometimes like to imagine myself in luxury. Like your heroine, if I did live in luxury and lost it, I'd try to get it back. I enjoy when the characters' stations in life change for the "fish out of water" element.

Re: It Happened One Bite (10:25pm March 14, 2011):

The book sounds intriguing. I was especially interested since I'm from North Carolina to. Fun to find "local" talent.

Re: Angel's Rest (2:40pm March 12, 2011):

I'd love to win your book. I like finding "new" authors. Congrats on your rebirth.

Re: What I Did For A Duke (3:42pm March 10, 2011):

I read the excerpt for your new book and the one you're giving away - Like No Other Lover. Both left me wanting the end of the story. Hope I win one. I'll be looking for the other.

Re: Animal Magnetism (8:25pm March 5, 2011):

Puppy is adorable & so is the guy. I'll be looking for this book.

Re: Scandal of the Year (10:55am March 4, 2011):

I like your idea of moving to the early 20th century. I don't think I've read any romances in that era. The Girl-Batchelor series sounds like fun. I'd love to win it.

Re: Treasure Me (12:40pm March 3, 2011):

I'm a reader & I enjoy these posts about the writing process. It's fun to see the differences in how authors feel about and approach their profession.

Re: Against the Law (9:09pm March 1, 2011):

I've read excerpts from a couple of the "Against" books and loved them. Winning 2 would be a great start on the set.

Re: RiverTime (10:50am February 16, 2011):

There's bad news on TV and in the paper - not to mention in my bank statement. I'm trying to escape all that. Your book sounds like it fits the bill. I'd love to win it.

Re: Dangerous Secrets (1:28pm February 11, 2011):

I took an early retirement. Then, in rapid succession, my grandmother went into assisted living, my single sister had a child and my married sister, who had 2 kids, lost her husband to cancer. They were all in different cities. My parents & I needed to be many places at once. It wasn't what I planned but I felt lucky to be able to help my family.

Re: The Mistress' House (8:32pm February 10, 2011):

This is a book I'd like to read (and win).

Re: Society's Most Disreputable Gentleman (3:16pm February 9, 2011):

The Bad Boy has a charisma that he retains even after he's "tamed". In real life, I find myself drawn. But I've grown careful and look for the good guy.

Re: Everyone Loves A Hero (8:19pm February 2, 2011):

I haven't had a big heroic moment but maybe a small one. Our neighbor's 4-year old was in the lake and I saw a snake swimming near her. I was afraid it was a poisonous water moccasin. My mind just went blank. Then I waded in, picked her up & got us to shore. The snake was probably as scared as I was but I couldn't risk it.

Re: Eternal Prey (7:49pm January 26, 2011):

I'll echo others with my admiration for Roarke. I agree with Carol about Kelley Armstrong's Clay. He's known for his barbaric defense of his werewolf clan but totally devoted to his mate. I also like Charles from Patricia Briggs' books. Another werewolf enforcer that has to maintain his tough rep to keep the others from "foolish" challenges. Only his mate sees his gentle,humorous side. My ficional heroes are the loyal protectors.

Re: At Hidden Falls (8:11pm January 25, 2011):

I think my love of books dates back to early childhood. My mother read to my sisters & me every night. I liked the stories where you did hand motions to go with the story. (I'm much older than the children's books with sound.) Then when I could read on my own, I loved my elementary school library. I liked biographies, myths, and Zane Grey. I wanted to read all the books in the library. The books were my journey away from my small rural community. I've never stopped my journeys through reading.

Re: Deadly Heat (2:06pm January 22, 2011):

I'm also one of the "mood" readers. Sometimes dark appeals. Sometimes I like humorous. The careful combination of light and dark is always a pleasure. I've noticed that I really want something humorous and light if I've read several dark romances in a row.

Re: Wicked Seduction (12:14pm January 11, 2011):

I guess I need to become a writer also - like Jeanne above. I don't even have a family to blame for the mess in my home office. I know there's a microSD card adapter that I need in that jungle somewhere. So now I'm off on safari......

Re: Against The Wind (7:46pm January 3, 2011):

I like trilogies. They're more like a small town where everyone & everything is somehow connected.

Re: Marked By The Moon (5:33pm November 4, 2010):

I don't like the traditional, totally evil, monsters. I like those who have protective natures. That's true even if monsters head out for a little live snack later. I'm anxious to read the next book in the Nightcreature saga.

Re: Twilight Hunger (1:01pm October 21, 2010):

I'd like to this prize. I've read your romantic suspense books but now I'm eager to read the vampire series - especially knowning it laid the foundation for the vampire genre.
