Re: Highland Spitfire (6:37pm February 28, 2016):

I really enjoyed the excerpt. I don't have a particular favorite. I love when I feel like I am pulled into the story and everything is in the correct time period.

Re: Enchantment of a Highlander (1:05pm January 28, 2016):

You are a new author for me. I have been working very hard to lose more weight this year. Last year I lost 40 pounds. I'm hoping I can gain my ideal weight this year.

Re: A Touch of Passion (1:49am April 23, 2015):

The Battle of Waterloo took place near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Re: More Than A Duke (6:14pm January 15, 2015):

I like heroes who are flawed and fall hard for their heroines. I like heroines who are kick ass and can take care of themselves, but are putty in the heroes hands.

Re: How to Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy (6:10pm January 15, 2015):

I love your books and their covers, Vanessa! Unfortunately, I haven't read this series yet, and am looking forward to it.

Re: The Lady's Disgrace (8:50pm September 10, 2014):

I love historical romances. They were the first romance books I ever read, and I can't get enough of them. However, I loved history when I was in school.

Re: My Highland Spy (11:31pm September 9, 2014):

Hi Victoria! I have never been overseas. I would love to visit Scotland, Italy, France, England, and many other places. Thanks for the giveaway!

Pamela, I am sending out a lot of thoughts and prayers your way. So glad you were current on your mammograms and found the cancer early. God Bless and I will be thinking of you tomorrow as you have your surgery.

Re: To Charm a Naughty Countess (7:29pm May 22, 2014):

You are my soul mate or I can't live without you. Of course, those words would only work if I felt the same way.

Re: Lady Gone Bad (8:34pm May 19, 2014):

No, I don't think I could survive in another time period with my health problems. Also, I don't like the thought of women just being chattel.

Re: Hell for Leather (12:59pm May 18, 2014):

I really enjoy Nicole Jordan, Sabrina Jeffries, and Shana Galen's series books.

Re: Risky Game (12:51pm May 14, 2014):

I have read sports romances and really, really enjoyed them. The only one I can think of right now is one I just read: KNOWING THE SCORE by Kat Latham. Your books sound really good, Tracy, and I need to get them. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Wild About Her Wingman (9:27pm April 23, 2014):

Laying back in my recliner with either popcorn or chocolate, and either raspberry tea or a diet pepsi or coke, reading a good book.

Re: Playing It Close (3:11pm April 14, 2014):

I have never had the pleasure of seeing a rugby game, but would love to. The players are sexy,

Re: The Ace (7:27am April 12, 2014):

I love it when the game is close, and the other team steals the ball and wins (except for when it is my teams -- Lol!)

Re: Mad About You (4:20pm April 3, 2014):

I really enjoy reading friends to lovers stories. The most recent one I have read is Tawny Weber's A SEAL'S KISS. My beloved late husband of 39 years and I started out as good friends, turned into best friends, and evolved into a wonderful and warm loving relationship.

Re: The Winter Bride (4:15pm April 3, 2014):

I enjoy both the alpha and beta heroes. I do love romances that make me laugh, and Winter Bride sounds like a fun one. I also like muffins (ladies and the kind you eat). Give me a blueberry, cinammon, apple, or chocolate chip muffin, and I feel like I am in Heaven.

Re: Stealing the Groom (6:21am March 19, 2014):

Hi, Sonya! STEALING THE GROOM sounds like a must read. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Her Summer with the Marine (5:21am March 19, 2014):

Re: The Duke's Quandary (1:30am March 15, 2014):

My hero was my DH of 39-1/2 years, who died from lymphoma cancer on August 1st of last year. My husband was my best friend. He protected me from my very abusive father, was always bringing me flowers and plants and candy, always knew just what to say when I was down, in general supported me in everything, and was always there for me. I miss him terribly.

Re: The Bride Insists (10:33pm March 13, 2014):

I haven't seen the movie, but I watched the series back in the 70's-80's. I loved it and the men of the squadron!

Your book sounds fantastic. Thanks for the chance to win!

Re: Desperately Seeking Suzanna (10:24pm March 13, 2014):

I can't pick just one. My favorite desserts are chocolate cake, strawberry pie, and cheesecake. Yummy!

Your book sounds like a must read. Thanks for the chance to win!

Re: The Rancher's Second Chance (4:50pm March 12, 2014):

I have loved cowboys since I was a little girl back in the 50's watching westerns. Your top 10 pretty much sums it up. However, I would add honest and a good sense of humor. If you have a good sense of humor, it is easier to work things out with your mate.

Re: Sapphires Are an Earl's Best Friend (10:13pm March 7, 2014):

Hi, Shana! I love your books and have been waiting patiently for Lily's story. I am really looking forward to reading it. Thanks so much for this giveaway! Good luck everyone!

Re: Safe in the Tycoon's Arms (11:59pm March 4, 2014):

I lost my husband from Lymphoma cancer on August 1st last year. I have been learning how to be independent for the first time in my life, and it has been very difficult for me to be alone after being married for 39-1/2 years.

Re: The Rebel Pirate (11:55pm March 4, 2014):

I have a lot of favorite authors. Some of them are Tawny Weber, Joanne Rock, Eloisa James, and Julia London.

Re: Must Love Dukes (12:53pm March 2, 2014):

My most awkward moment was beefore my husband's funeral on August 1st of last year. I had gone into the restroom, and somehow my dress got caught up in my panties and my butt was sticking out, and I was walking around that way in front of everyone for about a minute when my best friend told me to get my dress down. Lol!

Re: The Trouble With Honor (7:28pm February 25, 2014):

Hi, Julia! Love your books and the great excerpt of THE TROUBLE WITH HONOR. Can't wait to read this one. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: What The Groom Wants (8:14pm February 13, 2014):

I was going to guess D, but got here too late to make that comment. Jade, I love your books! The covers are gorgeous.

Re: The MacGregor's Lady (2:25pm February 7, 2014):

Hi, Grace! I'm a little late to your party, but am wondering when and what made you want to write historicals?

Re: What The Groom Wants (2:14pm February 7, 2014):

I love your books, Jade! How about in a stopped elevator, up against the elevator walls and floor?

Re: The Groom's Gamble (4:43pm February 5, 2014):

I like THUNDER STRUCK because of the vivacious colors and THE GROOM'S GAMBLE because it is sexy.

Re: The Groom's Gamble (2:22pm January 5, 2014):

Hi, Jade! I love your books! I like all his covers but my favorites are THUNDERSTRUCK and THE GROOM'S GAMBLE. I really like the colors in them.

The grocery store or a restauraunt is where I'd probably meet my famous man. Maya, your book sounds good.

Re: The Wedding Game (5:01pm November 24, 2013):

Hi, Amy! I definitely wouldn't marry a stranger for any amount of money. You never would know who you'd end up with. It could be someone that is cruel and/or abusive.

Re: Once A Seal (12:58pm November 17, 2013):

Hi,Anne! You are a new author for me. Once A Seal sounds very good. Thank your husband for his service, please.

Hi, Mary! Thanks for sharing about the corsets and historical dress. It was very interesting. How to Handle A Highlander sounds like a must read. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Never Underestimate a Caffarelli (8:25pm October 27, 2013):

My DH of 39 years was pretty much confined to a wheelchair whenever we went anywhere. The wheelchair was heavy and hard to wield. It was also hard to get through some doors or hallways. Then there was the terrible time of trying to get around in the winter.

Re: Norse Jewel (8:20pm October 27, 2013):

Hi, Gina! Your book sounds fantastic. I love historicals of almost any date frame except 1900's-200's. I have always loved stories of Vikings and their captured love interests. I love books with a twist in them.

Re: A Lady's Secret Weapon (7:14pm October 18, 2013):

I love historicals period. I love them with danger as well as funny and light.

Re: One Night in the Spa (2:00pm October 8, 2013):

I like to turn the space heater on, wrap up in a warm blanket, listen to oldies music, and read a good book.

When it's cool outside, I like to snuggle under a blanket, drink hot chocolate or hot tea, and read a really good book.

Re: The Highlander's Desire (3:15pm August 31, 2013):

I love Scottish stories and my favorite fairy tale is Cinderella.

Re: What the Bride Wore (9:55pm August 29, 2013):

I prefer historical books, but also enjoy contemporary. Right now I am reading Sweet Enemy by Heather Snow.

Re: Rugged Hearts (1:18am July 25, 2013):

My husband of 39 years. He taught me to not be shy and to stand up for myself.

Re: Breathe Again (5:28pm July 6, 2013):

My medical heroes were Dr .Kildare and Dr.Casey way back when. I wouldn't want to change anything about them.

Hi, Julie Anne! Congrats on your new book. I loved the excerpt, and yes, it does happen again. One big, big BOOM.

Re: Wish You Were Here (6:20pm June 29, 2013):

I have always loved reading, as far back as I can remember. I became a romance reader at the age of 18. I love contemporaries and historicals.

Your book sounds like a must read.

Re: Long Simmering Spring (9:27pm May 29, 2013):

I have made many mistakes in my life. Usually it has been to say something that has hurt someone's feelings. I have always apologized, but sometimes I wonder if what is said in anger, stays with some people even if you regret it and apologize for saying it.

Re: The Secret Life of Lady Julia (7:07pm May 26, 2013):

I often wish I had become a Veterinarian or a Lawyer instead of a Secretary. I have dreamed of becoming a writer for many years now also.

Re: Lady Vivian Defies A Duke (9:46am May 24, 2013):

I love books where familiar characters make a reappearance. One of my favorites is The Hellions of Hallstead Hall. I also enjoy your books very much along with Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallory. Thanks so much for this giveaway!

Re: Protector (3:09pm March 3, 2013):

Hi, Nancy! I always take at least one book with me whenever I am going somewhere where I have to wait or on a vacation. When I am in a waiting room I always read. I do re-read books I really enjoy.

Re: An Encounter at the Museum (3:24pm March 1, 2013):

I met my husband of 39 years at a wedding. He was Best Man and I was Maid-of-Honor. We were married about a year later.

Re: Hot Ticket (11:32am February 28, 2013):

A good friend is someone that supports you in good times and hard times. They are always there for you, whether to clean your house, or just listen and give advice.

Re: Jake (12:16pm February 26, 2013):

Hi, R.C.! You are a new author for me. I love cowboys. They stay busy and buff with their ranching. I believe that most are honest and hardworking men. I loved your excerpt of Jake. I will have to read all 3 of the Conway brothers stories. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: X Marks The Scot (3:34pm February 22, 2013):

I love bad boys in books, but can't think of one right off hand except for Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind.

Re: Checkmate, My Lord (3:30pm February 22, 2013):

I don't have a favorite secondary character that hasn't gotten his/her own book so far. Secondary characters lend so much to the book and cry out for their own story. Checkmate, My Lord sounds wonderful.

Re: Treacherous Temptations (10:08am February 9, 2013):

Hi, Victoria! TREACHEROUS TEMPTATIONS sounds like a must read. Love your books!

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (2:57pm February 1, 2013):

I am from a small family but enjoy reading about large families in a series.

Re: The Autumn Bride (2:54pm February 1, 2013):

I don't belong to a book club. In fact, I don't know of anyone that I personally know that reads romance stories except me. I read to get away and enjoy the stories.

Re: The Officer Breaks The Rules (7:53pm January 24, 2013):

I like it when friends become a couple. I married my best friend, whom I met at a wedding where I was Maid-of-Honor and he was Best Man. As Ann Landers said, it is friendship caught on fire.

Re: Fall Into You (3:04pm January 20, 2013):

Hi, Roni! I like series and standalones. If I know it is a series, I always try to read the first one first, but I don't always do that.

Re: Waking Up With A Rake (1:22pm January 11, 2013):

A hero who is cruel to humans and animals turn me off. Your new series sounds very interesting and good. I'm looking forward to reading them. Loved your excerpt!

Re: In His Brother's Place (12:34pm January 6, 2013):

I like both, but prefer historicals. A lot of times I wish there was a time machine for me. Lol! I love the Harlequin lines.

Re: Fallen Angel (2:34pm December 30, 2012):

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma in February. I am very grateful that he is still alive and with me. We are praying for remission. We found out Friday night during a trip to the VA ER that the cancer has penetrated his left kidney. Please pray for us.

Re: Captive Of The Border Lord (5:16pm December 22, 2012):

We go to my sister-in-law's house every Christmas Eve. She, my husband, and their two other brothers always tell tales about when they were growing up or when their kids or grandkids were growing up.

Re: Jane's Gift (1:05pm December 9, 2012):

The books that are on my wish list for Christmas are Jane's Gift and Seven Nights in A Rogue's Bed.

Re: The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (4:30pm December 6, 2012):

Hi, Grace! Thanks so much for the interesting facts about Victorian times. I love to read historicals, and I love your books.

Re: Rancher's Son (4:25pm December 6, 2012):

Hi, Leigh! I don't really know anything about Florida, except it's beautiful, Disney is there, it's warm throughout the year, and they have hurricanes. Now, I know it's the 3rd largest beef producing state and they raise cattle and have cattle drives. I guess you never get too old to learn. Lol!

Re: Too Close For Comfort (4:19pm December 6, 2012):

Hi, Lynne! My husband bought a gun years ago, and we have it locked up in the house, but within range if we ever need it. We went to the rifle range quite often, but I never became a really good shot, so I hope I never have to use one, even though I could hit a large target.

Re: Under the Mistletoe (8:55pm December 2, 2012):

Hi, Jill! Great post! I love your books! You have definitely gotten some very interesting gifts. I especially had to chuckle about the glow in the dark gummy worm. Lol!

Re: Heart Of A Texan (2:09pm December 1, 2012):

Great post on cowboys. I grew up in the 50's and 60's, so there were plenty of cowboys to watch on TV, and I couldn't get enough of them. I always wondered why none of the sons on Bonanza married, and now I know. Looking forward to reading your book.

Re: A Christmas Bride / Christmas Beau (11:37am November 27, 2012):

Hi, Mary! I love your books, but haven't read any of your Christmas books yet. They sound wonderful, and I look forward to reading them. Merry Christmas!

Re: Taming the Outback (12:55pm November 25, 2012):

Hi Ann! Taming the outback looks and sounds like a fun read. I love feisty heroines.

Re: Holiday in Crimson (12:31pm November 24, 2012):

Hi, Patricia! I really liked the cover and the blurb for Holiday in Crimson. You are a new author for me, and this sounds like a must read.

I love the Christmas tree, presents under it, and all the family gathering for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I can remember one Christmas that my brother and I were searching for our Christmas presents and found them in a closet by the washer and dryer. We were so excited until we found out on Christmas that those were the only presents we were getting. Needless to say, it was a big letdown, and we never tried to snoop for presents after that. We didn't tell mom and dad about that until we were adults. Lol!

Re: Untamed (12:37pm November 23, 2012):

Hi Sara! Untamed sounds like a good book.

I agree with you about the Black Friday sales. We thought we would try it one year and really regretted it. I don't like the huge crowds and all the pushing and shoving that entails.

Our tradition for the day after Thanksgiving is always to just sit back, relax, and enjoy each others company.

Re: Wolfishly Yours (12:27pm November 23, 2012):

I really enjoyed reading the Hadley family's Christmas list. I have new clothes and books on my Christmas list. I love your books, ladies, and am anxious to read this series. Thanks for a fun post and a giveaway!

Re: The Warrior (12:51pm November 3, 2012):

Hi Margaret! Thanks so much for such an interesting post! I love your books and would love to win THE WARRIOR. Yes, Gerard Butler inspires me. I also enjoy the old love songs from the 50's-70's. Of course, White Christmas and Merry Christmas Darling always gets to me. I love reading about Highlanders and old castles and the legends behind them. I do have a question for you. Where do you get your ideas about stories from?

Re: The Warrior (2:01pm November 1, 2012):

Christmas songs like White Christmas inspire me. I love old castles and the legends about them as well as your books.

Re: One Night with a Hero (12:36pm October 27, 2012):

I love military heroes because they are hard working, loyal, courageous, caring, and they are fighting for our country, safety, and freedom. Most of them are also very hot.

Re: Mistletoe Cowboy (1:13pm October 26, 2012):

Most of the books I read draw me in and I feel like I am that character for a while. I can identify with the things the characters are feeling and doing. In some of the books, they make me laugh out loud or cry. I do like to see appearances of previous friends from the books that came before them.

Re: Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight (1:05pm October 26, 2012):

I love Christmas stories. My husband and I got engaged around Christmas, and it still holds a special place in my heart. It was the day baby Jesus was born, and it still is a season of hope and joy.

Re: Return Of The Border Warrior (10:22pm October 17, 2012):

Hi Blythe! I don't have any secrets, but would love to be entered in your drawing for RETURN OF THE BORDER WARRIOR.

Re: Shattered Silence (10:50am October 16, 2012):

Hi Margaret! I love your books and this one sounds like another winner.

Re: Death, Taxes, and a Sequined Clutch (10:45am October 16, 2012):

I have found that the best way is to treat them with kindness when you see the louse. Say hello whenever you see them. It will just kill them and make them feel guilty if they don't already.

Re: Against His Will (1:14pm October 8, 2012):

Hi Trish! It never ceases to amaze me how authors can start with a hero/heroine they/you don't like and have them redeem themselves. Both AGAINST HIS WILL and FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL... sound like must reads. Thanks for sharing both stories with us.

Re: Lady X's Cowboy (12:59pm October 8, 2012):

I have never been ashamed of reading romance novels. Some people tell me that I need to read something of substance, but I just smile and read what I enjoy.

Re: Secrets Of A Wedding Night (12:34pm September 28, 2012):

Hi Valerie! You are a new author for me. Secrets of A Wedding Night sounds really good. I love smart heroes. They make things more interesting since they always have a plan and are thinking ahead. There's no way for you to keep up with them. Lol! I don't know anything about faro.

Re: A Home For Nobody's Princess (12:58pm September 25, 2012):

Home is where you feel comfortable and wanted.

Re: Charming Blue (11:56am September 22, 2012):

Hi Kristine! You are a new author for me. I love fairytale related stories, and yours sound really good.

You can't please all the people all the time, so don't worry about it. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Where There's A Will (11:53am September 21, 2012):

Hi Karen! Yuo are a new author for me. Where There's A Will sounds like a must read. Great twist for ugly duckling!

Re: Enemies at the Altar (6:48pm September 20, 2012):

Yes, I do think that love and hate are closely related. They are both very passionate emotions. You can love and hate someone at the same time.

I think that hate is a reflection on us. It only eats away at us, but doesn't harm the one we hate unless we try to ruin them and succeed.

Re: A Lady And Her Magic (5:11pm September 14, 2012):

My first love was my dog, Duchess. My parents got her when I was a baby and we were inseparable. She passed away from what we thought was a heart attack at the age of 14.

Re: When You Give A Duke A Diamond (1:54pm September 8, 2012):

Hi Shana! I am looking forward to reading your series about the 3 Diamonds. I don't like selfish heroines. I think I would like to read more books about courtesans. It is a very interesting concept.

Re: In the Line of Duty (2:07pm August 26, 2012):

Hi Donna! In the Line of Duty sounds like a great read. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Blame It On Texas (1:58pm August 26, 2012):

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma Cancer in late February. Since then, several friends have also been diagnosed. Laugthter and reading books is what is keeping me sane.

Re: Florentine's Hero (4:11pm August 25, 2012):

HiDebra! Thanks so much for the thumbs up about Entangled Publishing. That is one I didn't know about. RODEO REBEL sounds like a fun read. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Not the Marrying Kind (4:03pm August 25, 2012):

Hi Nicola! I really enjoy your books and NOT THE MARRYING KIND sounds like another winner. I loved the excerpt and would love to win this one.

Re: Deep Blue (9:14am August 14, 2012):

Hi Kat! I love your books. I don't remember reading DEEP BLUE, but am planning to. I have never been on a cruise before, but would love to go someday. How wonderful that you were one of 25 authors on a Carnival Cruise Line ship with 650 readers. I would love to do something like that.

Re: Sweet Deception (3:27pm August 13, 2012):

Hi Heather! Love your covers for Sweet Enemy and Sweet Deception. Thanks so much for the wonderful excerpt of Sweet Deception. The one thing that I am most stubborn about is standing up for my family. I am also very stubborn about not wanting to give or get rid of any of my books. Sigh...

Re: Wild Texas Rose (4:32pm August 6, 2012):

Hi Jodi! Congrats on your 35th book! I think Texas is beautiful and I love Historical Romances. Wild Texas Rose sounds like an interesting read. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: The Last Victim (3:11pm August 5, 2012):

Hi Karen! Congrats on your newest book. So glad you listened to your inner thoughts on THE LAST VICTIM! Looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Re: Married By Midnight (11:48am August 3, 2012):

I usually buy the books as soon as they come out if I know the author. If I don't know the author and find out about them later, I read what they have out.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: The Secret Mistress (3:27pm August 1, 2012):

I think that it is refreshing every once in a while to have a beta hero. Love your books Mary!

Re: Deception (9:56pm July 30, 2012):

Lynn, I also have frizzy hair and would not make a good romance heroine. I am a much better romance reader. I love your books,

Re: Goddess in the Middle (1:39pm July 28, 2012):

I have never read a menage before, but this one sounds and looks wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: Creating Fate (4:57pm July 24, 2012):

I met my husband at a wedding. He was Best Man and I was Maid-of-Honor. I was dating someone else at the time, and just wanted to be friends with him. One night about a week after we met, he took me to his family's home for a dinner. His parents told me to call them mom and dad. That was my oh-shit moment. Another one was when my dad told me that since our dog liked him, I had permission to marry him if he asked me some day. Needless to say, we did get married and have been married for almost 39 years now.

Re: Deep Autumn Heat (11:33pm July 6, 2012):

Elisabeth, congrats on your debut, DEEP AUTUMN HEAT. It sounds musty. Love the cover.

Re: Lord Of Fire And Ice (11:29pm July 6, 2012):

Lord of Fire and Ice sounds like a must read. I love both yours and Connie Mason's stories. Also looking forward to Touch of A Scoundrel.

Re: The Wrangler (11:23pm July 6, 2012):

The Last Cowboy sounds interesting. I have known riches to rags, and it is not fun.

Re: Wicked Nights (1:57pm June 29, 2012):

I am always caught up with the character in the book I am now reading. Since I'm not reading anything right now, I will say Rhett Butler in Gone With The Wind. He has stayed with me the longest of any of the other characters I have read.

Re: Lady Amelia's Mess And A Half (1:42pm June 29, 2012):

Hi Samantha! One of my favorite movies is JUST LIKE HEAVEN. She is in a coma, he moves into her apartment, and she comes to haunt him. At the end they are reunited as a totally human couple.

Re: Invitation To Scandal (7:00pm June 27, 2012):

I wouldn't want to be anyone but myself. The grass always looks greener on the other side, but rarely is.

Re: Her Forbidden Hero (1:16am June 20, 2012):

I am very disappointed in a story if it is far-fetched. I think if the author is writing a book that she/he should get their facts straight.

Re: Honorable Rancher (1:11am June 20, 2012):

I loved to read as soon as I learned how to read. I got my books from the library. I got started on romance when I was in my late teens. I started reading Barbara Cartland books and moved on to Kathleen Woodiwess and other great writers.

Re: The Casanova Code (4:17pm June 18, 2012):

My advertisement would read: Looking for an honest, faithful, humorous, handsome man to shake my world and take me away.

Re: About Last Night (3:36am June 11, 2012):

Hi Ruthie! About Last Night sounds like fun. I am looking forward to reading it.

Re: Diamonds Are Truly Forever (8:38pm June 4, 2012):

My parents and grandparents taught me to tell the truth. They said that if you lie, you get caught up in it, and end up screwing things up. Lol! Seriously, I try to be truthful at all times. If I am in a spot where the truth would hurt, I gently try to change the conversation.

Re: The Homesteader's Sweetheart (11:24am May 29, 2012):

I don't remember reading any stories about single dads before. I like the great mix you mentioned.

Re: Tangle Of Need (11:21am May 29, 2012):

Nalini, I love series books. I enjoy following the minor and major characters in their own stories.

Re: Finding Her Son (11:18am May 29, 2012):

Hi Robin! My hero is my husband. He is loyal, has a great sense of humor, does lots of things just for me to make me happy, is very romantic, and is my Rock of Gibralter.

Re: The Taming Of A Scottish Princess (8:47pm May 23, 2012):

I love all the heroes in romance books. Can't really say that I have a favorite one.

I have been waiting for this book, Karen, and can't wait to read it.

Re: The Reason Is You (5:49pm May 22, 2012):

I also like the flirting, holding hands, lightly touching, laughing, and of course good sizzling arguments that get the juices flowing.

Re: Beauty and The Best (7:20pm April 30, 2012):

Hi Judi! I love your books! Beauty and the Best looks and sounds like another must read.

Re: Secrets of the Knight (11:15pm February 13, 2012):

My favorite paranormal books are the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. Love Sookie, those vamps, and the weres.

Re: A Scandalous Countess (11:10pm February 13, 2012):

Thanks so much for the history lesson, ladies! I really enjoy your books. I love both periods: Georgian and Regency. I like the fashions of both periods except for the wigs and not washing in the Georgian era. Just give me a to-die-for hero and a kick-ass heroine and I am happy.

Re: Spin (10:10pm February 13, 2012):

Kate's love interest is Henry. Thanks for the great interview, Jen and Catherine. Spin sounds like a great book.

Re: Ride With Me (9:55pm February 13, 2012):

Hi Ruthie! I have been waiting for this book to come out. I love hot foods, but my stomach doesn't. Lexie and Tom's story is a must read.

Re: Touch Me (12:20pm January 30, 2012):

I love almost all romance -- especially if it is an historical, cowboy, or men in uniform. I do enjoy friends to lovers romances. My husband and I dated as friends for 6 months before we realized we actually loved each other. Everyone else knew we would get married the night we met at a wedding rehearsal where he was Best Man and I was Maid-of-Honor.

Re: Double Dare (5:04pm January 27, 2012):

Hi Sky! I've never really thought about loggers before, but I guess they would be sexy. I like fit and sexy men in uniforms and handsome college professors. Also someone that is fit and works with their hands.

Re: Dreamers (5:38pm January 21, 2012):

Hi Shawn! I know my roots very well, so there aren't any secrets there. I am a very depressed person that is trying to learn who the real me is. There is so much of my past that was so painful that I buried it deep inside. I am also an optimist. I always try to see and think the best of people although many times I have been disappointed. I do know that I am me and therefore unique.

Re: Sex, Lies and Surveillance (6:09pm January 19, 2012):

Hi Stephanie! SEX, LIES AND SURVEILLANCE sounds like a must read. As far as a favorite spy goes, I have 3 that have already been named: Maxwell Smart, James Bond, and Jason Bourne. Maxwell because he was funny, James because he is sexy and smooth, and Jason because he is so intense and doesn't know what is going on in his life.

Re: Scrumptious (2:24pm January 16, 2012):

When I was little, I wanted to be a veterinarian, but my doctor said I had too many allergies to do it. Then I thought of becoming a lawyer and a secretary. I ended up as a secretary for many years, but was wishing I had become a lawyer instead.

Re: Dylan (2:14pm January 16, 2012):

Hi C.H.! Loved the excerpt! Dylan sounds like a hot cowboy that knows what he wants and goes after it.

[email protected]

Re: Sins Of The Highlander (11:36am January 12, 2012):

What a great excerpt. I laughed out loud at the happy part of his anatomy and his worrying that she was looking at him after he got out of taking his bath in the loch. My must have traits in a person are honesty, humor, and caring.

Re: Hot Rain (12:56pm January 4, 2012):

Kat, I love your books and will have to get Hot Rain.

I have been married for 38 years, so I'm not dating. Of course, back then, they didn't have online dating. I prefer the romance of actual dating, but I know it is getting very popular. My husband's cousin has already had 3 marriages after his online dating, so I'm not certain it is that good of a thing. There are too many liars and bad people out there, so it can also be dangerous. Of course, I am sure there have also been some very successful relationships out there which started that way.

Re: Wedded In Scandal (2:55pm December 22, 2011):

Give me my computer and I am happy. I spend way too much time on it, but I'm addicted to all the authors and sites I keep track of. Next in line, is please, please, please, give me a book. I am perfectly happy with just those 2 things. Unfortunately, because of my addictions, there are too many times I should be house cleaning or something else, but here I am with a book or on my computer, and it's hard to go away from either one.

Re: Lady Seductress's Ball (4:56pm December 19, 2011):

My favorites are chocolate chip, peanutbutter, and oatmeal. I recently went to a cookie exchange at church and had a great time. As you mentioned, definite gym time is needed.

Right now I am reading Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novel Club Dead. Her books are fun to read and hard to put down.

I am looking forward to reading Tristan's and Olivia's love story in LADY SEDUCTRESS'S BALL. It sounds really good.

Re: The King's Mistress (10:49am December 18, 2011):

Hi Sandy!

I love your books. Thanks so much for this blog! I really learned a lot from and enjoyed reading it. Good luck in the giveaway everyone!

Re: How To Worship A Goddess (5:19pm December 13, 2011):

I agree that it's nice if a hockey player has all his teeth so he can have a sassy grin. He also needs to be good with his hands so he can hold his woman. I don't particularly like summer or winter. Give me spring and fall, please.

Re: Wild Thing (3:14pm December 5, 2011):

Hi Robin! I think that opposites attract, but at heart, they want the same thing. Love, acceptance, frienship, and understanding.

Re: The Earl's Mistaken Bride (11:58am November 30, 2011):

I used to be a lemon person where my cup was always half full. I married an optimist, and after 38 years of marriage, he has made me see that using lemonade is a much sweeter way to live my life. The EARL'S MISTAKEN BRIDE is a perfect example of making lemonade out of lemons. Constance wears off on Marcus and brings his thinking around. I can't wait to read this book.

Re: The Spy Who Left Me (11:42am November 26, 2011):

I am looking forward to reading your book. Right now, I have atarted to read the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. It is a riot, and I plan to read them all.

Re: The Highlander's Heart (11:26am November 16, 2011):

David and Isabelle sound like interesting characters. I just love tortured heroes whether they just suffer from internal demons or love for their heroine. In fact, we know that he will be tortured by the heroine, so that just leaves any internal demons he might also have to deal with.

Re: Until There Was You (11:20am November 16, 2011):

Hi Kristan! I love your books and this sounds like another winner. Thanks for the contest.

Re: Genie Knows Best (2:22pm November 10, 2011):

Loved the outtake on Genie Knows Best. After going through that, Kal deserves happiness. Really looking forward to reading this book. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Darn Good Cowboy Christmas (12:28pm November 4, 2011):

I would wish for less hatred and more kindness in the world.

Re: Always a Temptress (12:16pm November 3, 2011):

Hi Eileen! You are a new author for me, but your books do sound like must reads. Again, I have found a new author to read. Right now I am reading Sabrina Jeffries books about the Sharpes. I love them! In fact, there have been many series books that I have enjoyed -- Sweet Savage Love among them, but I can't remember them all.

Re: Enchanted Destiny (1:24pm October 31, 2011):

Hi, Rayka! Your book sounds interesting and I love the cover.

Re: Radiant Desire (12:11pm October 30, 2011):

I agree with you that an alpha male is defined by competence, but also other atributes. When I think of an alpha, I think of a strong, caring, giving, and smart man. As far as Brad Pitt goes, I don't think of him as an alpha but as a horse's petutie.

Re: A Maverick For Christmas (12:03pm October 30, 2011):

Yes, there have been people who stepped up to the plate and helped me and people that I have helped. Positive discussion and listening are a very big part of helping people out. Of course, there are other ways as well: taking people somewhere when they can't drive and need to go, bringing people food, donating time, cleaning an ill person's house, sometimes just giving someone a smile, and in general, doing and being there for people. Those are all things that people have done for me and I have done for them.

Re: Utterly Charming (12:19pm October 19, 2011):

I think my favorite fairy tale is the Princess and the Pea.

Your book sounds like a lot of fun with Prince Charming falling in love with Cinderella's lawyer. Lol!

Re: Against The Storm (11:04am October 17, 2011):

Hi,Kat! I loved your blog and your perseverence. If you hadn't persevered, the world would never have met you as a great author. So far, I have all your Against books, and love them. Looking forward to reading your newest one, AGAINST THE STORM.

Is your husband still writing as well? Sure hope so!

Re: Roommates (2:04pm October 4, 2011):

Hi Katherine!

I like the names Robert, James, Michael, Steven or Stephen, Sean or Shawn, William, Christopher, Aiden, Alexander, Matthew, Clark, and Cary.

Re: The Norse King's Daughter (9:46am October 2, 2011):

When I'm in a reading slump, I usually go for a walk or to the gym for a good workout, or even do housework. I also visit my favorite blog websites and go on Facebook. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Lord and Lady Spy (3:35pm September 8, 2011):

Hi, Shana! Loved your ideas for a casting couch for Lord and Lady Spy. How about Roger Moore or Sean Connery, thinking of James Bond characters, and they are both British?

Looking forward to reading Lord and Lady Spy. It is on my to buy or win list.

Re: Lady Of The English (8:27am September 2, 2011):

Hi, Elizabeth! I am familiar with Matilda and the name of Lady of the English, but not Adeliza. Lady of the English sounds like a wonderful book. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Red's Hot Cowboy (1:33pm August 24, 2011):

Hi, Carolyn, and welcome! You are a new author for me, but I am hooked. I love cowboy stories because of those sexy hot cowboys waiting to be tamed, and the sassy heroines who tame them. If Wil was holding my leg and looking like he'd like to have me for breakfast, dinner, and supper I would either smile and say, "I'm yours" or I'd faint -- maybe even both.

Re: Love Me Twice (4:17pm August 18, 2011):

Hi Roz and welcome! I am not a good dancer, which is a good thing, since my DH isn't either. Love your blurb about LOVE ME TWICE. Congrats on it's release. I definitely want to read it! Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Midnight Fear (10:54am August 7, 2011):

Hi, Leslie and welcome! Congrats on becoming a newly published author with 2 books under your belt. I can hardly wait to read Midnight Fear and Midnight Caller. Midnight Fear sounds awesome. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Too Hot To Touch (5:48pm August 3, 2011):

My first crush was a boy in grade school. He knew I had a crush on him because of some of my big mouth friends. I think it embarrassed him because every time he saw me he blushed. Lol!

Re: Notorious (10:06pm July 29, 2011):

Hi Nicola! You are one of my favorite authors, and I absolutely love your books. Please keep them coming. Notorious sounds like another winner. I think if I were to do something scandalous back then, I would like to be a romance writer and write books like those written today. I would also like to elope to Gretna Green with one of my heroes.

Re: A Gentleman Never Tells (1:00pm July 25, 2011):

Hi Amelia and welcome! You are a new author for me and I loved your blog about bloopers. A GENTLEMAN NEVER TELLS sounds delicious and a must read. I was a secretary for many years and had to proofread my own letters, so not many misspelled words get by me. I agree with the others about bloopers in books/ebooks. I have seen them on covers where the hair colors don't match, misspelled words, paragraphs repeated, hero/heroine name changed, and paragraphs or sentences not finished.

Re: Touch If You Dare (2:11pm July 21, 2011):

My favorite hero depends upon the book I am reading at the time. Love them all! Jarvis sounds like a man one can love and respect. Loved the knitting and hair stylist along with his great love for only one woman. I want him right now!

Re: In The Heat Of The Bite (4:22pm July 19, 2011):

Hi Tammy and Jodie! Welcome! Loved your blog and the cover of It Happened One Bite is beautiful. I would love to win it. I can't think of any secondary heroes right off hand since I have read about so many over the years. I think that good secondary heroes and heroines help make the story though, and if they are good they deserve to have their own book. I like them in the foreground or background.

Re: The Doctor Takes A Princess (12:09pm July 8, 2011):

Hi Leanne!

I found that by cradling them close to your chest, crooning to them, and rocking them in your arms or in a rocking chair helps tremendously. It also helps to calm them by taking them for a car ride or putting them in their swing.

A great idea is to check their diaper first though.

Re: Loved By A Warrior (12:41pm July 6, 2011):

One myth (?) is the story of space ships coming down to earth. I think the tales are based on fear. Another myth is about frogs giving you warts.

Re: Night Veil (12:13pm June 27, 2011):

I liked both, but if I really have to choose, it would be Superman. I grew up watching the series. Yes, I thought it was silly that no one recognized him with his glasses on, but I loved the premise -- truth and the American way. I was really sad when George Reeves committed suicide and the series ended.

Re: Burning Skies (1:39pm June 24, 2011):

Your books sound fabulous. Will have to check them out.

Everyone has already mentioned all my reasons for wanting to fly, but here they are anyway: fly above traffic, be able to take off at a moments notice without paying airfare and messing with the airlines, overcoming my fear of heights, and just be able to see everything down below.

Re: Under a Desert Sky (1:40pm June 19, 2011):

I love happy endings and don't read books unless they do have one. Of course, HEA means a lot of commitment, being open and honest, and a lot of work in the real world.

Re: Cover of Darkness (12:33pm June 5, 2011):

Hi Kaylea! Your book sounds wonderful. I have read quite a few books about sexy, hot, and determined heroes, and have loved them all. Our Miltary forces rock!

Re: A Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your Man (4:59pm May 26, 2011):

Only 7 sins? I have committed them all. I think the 8th sin should be I am waiting for the next book since this one was so wonderful.

Your A Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your Man sounds awesome. Good luck everyone!

Re: Dirty (1:04pm May 22, 2011):

I am a reader. I think that self-publishing can be good for a lot of writers. I am sure it is cheaper to do and you don't have as many hoops to jump through to get your book published. I do want a good, meaty story, that is well written and well proofed though.

Re: Wickedly Charming (12:10pm May 16, 2011):

Congrats, Kristine! Kudos to you and your DH. Wickedly Charming sounds like a must read.

Re: The Hat (5:55pm May 9, 2011):

My mother was my best friend. She protected me from my dad, who was very abusive, although he never abused her. They fought like cats and dogs until the day of her death. She was always there for me and my brother, and made a good home, if not a totally happy one, for us while my dad forced her to keep working as an RN so we could have money they didn't have growing up. We were always happiest when dad was at work and not home. Mom taught me by exmaple how to be truthful, honest, happy, loyal, hardworking, loving, giving, and caring. We were always there for each other. She has been gone now for 12 years and I will always miss her.

Re: A Family Affair (4:57pm May 6, 2011):

Hi, Mary! Enjoyed your blog and would love to win your book. Both my DH and I come from dysfunctional families (especially his). In my family core, my dad was the dysfunctonal one, but he is gone now. My DH has 2 brothers and a sister, and it's not a good idea to turn your back on any of them unfortunately. Unless you are useful to them, they don't want to be bothered. In fact they are lying and deceitful. My DH and I weren't lucky enough to have children, so our dogs have always been children to us, and they have never disappointed or turned their backs on us.

Re: Love Drunk Cowboy (3:10pm May 4, 2011):

Hi, Carolyn! You are a new author for me, but I love the sound of your Love Drunk Cowboy starting out your SPIKES & SPURS series. I have a couple of pairs of cowgirl boots and love them. I also have always loved reading about cowboys.

Re: My Favorite Countess (10:23am April 28, 2011):

I don't think I have ever read a book where a doctor was a hero. Like so many others, I adored Ben Casey, Dr. Kildare, and of course the Mash doctors in the movie and tv series. I like both the alpha and beta males, and your book sounds like a must read.

Re: The Devil in Disguise (1:27pm April 23, 2011):

Hi,Stefanie! Congrats on your new book! Love the cover -- it screams buy me!

I like to see reviews/chapters of your book/books as they come out, contests, what you have been doing, and pictures of you and of course family and pets. Oh, did I mention contests? As far as recipes go, I have so many now that it's a turn off for me.

Re: Hidden Embers (2:01pm April 22, 2011):

I have two favorite seasons: Spring and Autumn.

I love spring because it is the time for new beginnings and the weather is neither hot nor cold.

I love autumn because it's when the leaves start changing colors and drop from the trees and crops are harvested. The weather also is nice: neither hot nor cold.

Re: Haunting Desire (6:05pm April 6, 2011):

Hi, Erin! The cover looks wonderful! I love stories about time travel, history, and legends. If all 3 books are like that, I need to read them. Thanks for blogging with us today.

Re: The Shadow Guard (10:20am April 5, 2011):

I would prefer to draw my own conclusions on what both the hero and heroine look like. That way, I'm not disappointed. I know you just asked about the hero, but that also applies to the heroine in my mind. Sorry to hear that Jake was such a rat. I would love to read about him. Lol!

Re: Rock Hard (2:11pm April 4, 2011):

I was in a love/hate relationship before i met my DH 40 years ago. Luckily the hate won out and I broke up with him. Your book sounds wonderful and I love the cover.

Re: Play Me (2:53pm March 29, 2011):

Hi, Kaily! You are a new author for me, but Play Me sounds like a good read. I would love to win it.

I like hot romance in or out of the bedroom, but it has to have it's place in the book and not be there for the sake of it. Profanity also turns me off.

Re: A Lot Like Love (3:00pm March 24, 2011):

I also prefer a slow burn. Love the anticipation buildup.

I like to read in my recliner with or without food or drink. Also, whenever I go some place where I know I'll have to wait a while, I go have book will travel.

Re: An Unlikely Countess (3:46pm March 19, 2011):

I don't think the hero or heroine should always love their place in society. No one wants to live in the bottom of the heap, but hopefully you can work and strive for what you want out of life and achieve your goals. Jo, I love to read about glitz and glamour, but it depends on the characters in the story. Mostly, I guess it's the way the author weaves the story together.

Re: It Happened One Bite (2:37pm March 14, 2011):

It Happened One Bite sounds like a great read! I love sexy and good vampires, and add a good witch and you've got a book that begs to be read. Best of luck with your series, Lydia!

Re: Angel's Rest (11:42am March 12, 2011):

Congrats Emily for your reborn life and your new series to go with it. Also, congrats to your daughter on her college graduation and your son on his wedding.

God bless!

Re: A Taste of Seduction (11:15am March 12, 2011):

I'm sorry for all the pain you went through, but there is a plus to it -- Anthony Weston.

I would love to read A Taste of Seduction.

God bless!

Re: Scandal of the Year (4:44pm March 4, 2011):

Laura, I have never read any of your books. I did win a $25.00 gift certificate for Barnes & Noble, so that is about ready to change. Unfortunately there are more books I want to read than having the money to chose between food and books.

My favorite period in books is historical, but I actually love any well written book with a feisty heroine and strong, sexy hero.

Your books sound great! Looking forward to reading them.

Re: Wicked Seduction (1:16pm March 2, 2011):

I can identify with everything you said. I read books and tend to put myself into the character of heroine who will be swept off my feet by the hero. All of the characters are fantastically real to me. I think it is totally normal for an author and reader to do that.

Re: His, Unexpectedly (2:33pm February 25, 2011):

Your books about the Fallon sisters sound wonderful.

I grew up with an abusive father, and was taught that I was not worth anything and unworthy of love from aynone. When I met my husband, I was constantly thinking he was cheating on me because of my upbringing and feeling that I was unloveable. After almost 2 years before getting married, my husband finally made me realize I was worth loving and there would never be anyone else for him. I was able to believe in his love, but still unloveable and not worth living for other people. My husband and I have been married almost 37 years now, and each day I thank God for him. As for my dear father, I was always still trying to win his love, only ending in disappointment. He passed away 2 years ago, and I finally realized he never had the love to give anyone. Since then, I have learned that I am a worthwhile and loveable person with my husband, family, friends, and therapist's help.

God bless!

Re: Storm Of Reckoning (6:39pm February 19, 2011):

Doranna, your blog was a lot of fun to read. Evil overlord... Bwahahahahahahaha! I also find myself talking to characters in books I read. It takes them a while to come over to my way of thinking, but they usually do. Lol!

If Storm of Reckoning is as good as your blog, I definitely want to read it.

Re: Beneath The Night Tree (12:09pm February 18, 2011):

My first love was a boy I met in 5th grade. That love carried me into high school. It was a case of love from afar though, because we never really spoke much.

During college, I met two men who I thought was the one. The first one was a rat, and it didn't take me long to realize it. The second one cheated on me, but came back right before I was to marry my wonderful husband of 37 years now. I couldn't beleve that he wanted me to break off my relationship with my DH and marry him instead. I have often wondered what happened to him, but I have never been sorry that I married my DH. He is the one true love of my life.

Re: Breaking the Rules (4:37pm February 14, 2011):

I'm not much of a drinker, but we always celebrate with a bottle of wine. Happy Valentine's Day!

Re: Society's Most Disreputable Gentleman (1:40pm February 9, 2011):

I love to read about rakes. They are so exciting to read about that you have to fall in love with them. You can even imagine yourself in the heroine's shoes. When I was dating, I dated quite a few of them, to my chagrin. Alas, and to the better, I am sure, I was not the woman to tame them.

In real life, I have been married to a wonderful, exciting, caring, giving, honest, and loving man that was never a rake for almost 38 years now.

Re: Everyone Loves A Hero (2:49pm February 2, 2011):

Hi, Marie! Everyone Loves A Hero sounds like my cup of tea. I look forward to reading it.

Thanks for your story about the elderly lady and you. I had a good laugh over that one. Don't worry though because next time you will come through with flying colors.

I haven't had my heroic moment yet, but hope that when I do, I will be cool, calm, collected, and helpful.

My real heroes are our military in Iraq and Afghanistan and the ones that came before them. I also recently lost my dad who was in World War II. Also, firemen and policemen are my heroes. They put their lives on the line every day.

Re: The Irish Princess (9:06pm February 1, 2011):

Karen, you spent a lot of time on research for this book. You make the history jump out at you without even reading the book. Please count me in for this contest. I would love to read Gera's story.

Re: Wild Man Creek (4:01pm January 29, 2011):

Haven't read any of the Virgin River series yet, but sounds like I need to. I loved Jack Sheridan's narrative, and the books covers are beautiful. I think I also read that a lot of the men are ex military -- even more reason to read them.

Re: Eternal Prey (12:33pm January 26, 2011):

Hi, Nina! I really enjoy your books!

I love alpha males with a soft spot for their families and friends who are brought down to their knees by the heroine. As far as a favorite hero goes, I don't have one. I love them all. I just finished Beverley Kendall's Sinful Surrender and am now reading her A Taste of Desire. I love James Rutherford, Thomas Armstrong, and Alex Cartwright in these books, so they are my heroes as of this minute. LOL!

Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

Re: At Hidden Falls (2:47pm January 25, 2011):

I had an abusive father growing up, so I would hide away and read lots of old Engligh Norman books and westerns. Later, I read all the romance and westerns I could get my hands on. At times, I thought I had read almost every one of those types of books in the library. When I was a bit older, I read most if not all of Barbara Cartland's books. I graduated to Kathleeen Woodiwess and other great authors. When I was in my 30's, I found Harlequin and have been reading them ever since. I also have a huge library that I keep adding to, and hope to read them all someday. LOL!

Re: Deadly Heat (12:49pm January 22, 2011):

I like my books to have some humor, lots of heat and/or sex, misunderstandings, a villain, and a lot of twists and turns. Of course these stories must also have an HEA.

Re: Yours For The Taking (1:32pm January 19, 2011):

My dream work day would be to sleep in and be woken by my hubby who would have a cup of coffee in his hand for me and breakfast already madeand ready to eat. He would do dishes while I get ready for work.

It would be a beautiful spring day with birds chirping. I would walk to work where I have an office facing a river. I would work and enjoy the scenery. After that, I would walk home again. My dear hubby would have dinner ready, burning candles on the table with a red rose by my plate. After dinner, he would kiss me, do the dishes, then take me by the hand and lead me to our bedroom...

Well, if I have to dream, it has to be big... LOL!

Re: Pleasure Me (2:05pm January 14, 2011):

The most pleasurable aspect of reading a romance is being able to be drawn into the book as though you are the heroine and being able to identify with the characters.

Re: Kiss At Your Own Risk (12:49pm January 12, 2011):

I haven't had anything bad happen to me as an adult, but as a child, my life was H***. I had a very abusive father who would slap me clear across the floor. I spent my entire life trying to please him and gain his love. He passed away 1-1/2 yrs ago, and with my loving and wonderful husband of 38 years help, I am finally beginning to learn who I am and to love myself. I still have a long ways to go, but little by little, I am getting there.

God bless!

Re: Red Ink (9:05pm December 28, 2010):

Hi, Kathi! I really enjoyed your article.

It is nice to write about what is in your realm, but it can get boring after a while. So glad you decided to branch out. I know it is harder work, but it is worth it.

God bless!

Re: The Irish Warrior (5:32pm December 21, 2010):

Kris, I would love to win The Irish Warrior. I love your books.

These are quotes from The Truth About Lord Stoneville. I liked a lot of them, but these examples are just two I liked.

The two men closed in on Freddy, with him stammering that he just "wanted a look at it, is all."

Hefting Freddy's sword, she brandished it at the nearest fellow. "Let him go! Or I swear I'll spit you like an orange."

To her right, a voice drawled, "An orange? That's your dire threat, my dear?"

"Well?" he said huskily when he was done. "If I had any sense of decency, I would give you a chance to consult with a lawyer about settlements and such, especially since you'll be coming into some money. But ---"

"---you have no sense of decency, I know," she teased. She tapped her finger against her chin. "Or was that morals you claimed not to have? I can't remember."

"Watch it, minx," he warned with a lift of his brow. "If you intend to taunt me for every foolish statement I've made in my life, you'll force me to play Rockton and lock you up in my dark, forbidding manor while I have my wicked way with you."

"That sounds perfectly awful," she said, gazing at the man she loved. "How soon can we start?"

Re: The Viking's Captive (3:27pm December 20, 2010):

I have so many books that it's hard to keep all of them. The one thing about it though is that with my memory I reread and reread the ones I liked and kept, and it's like picking up a new book.

Re: The Heir (1:40pm December 16, 2010):

Hi, Grace! Your story is very interesting and one I can identify with. I was always sleeping with my head under the covers so that none of the monsters could see me if they did come in the dark since my dad refused to let me have a night light asnd insisted I sleep with my bedroom door closed. I think I was most afraid of the upstairs, basement, and my closet. Lol! I also never liked seeing horror stories and still don't to this day.

It's wonderful that you can take those fears and put them into creativity.

The Heir sounds like my kind of book. A working woman with secrets who ends up becoming a Countess.

Thanks for this chance to win.

Re: The Ghost Hunter (6:32pm December 11, 2010):

I just like historicals. I prefer them to take place in England, Scotland, or Wales though.

Re: Unguarded (6:09pm December 11, 2010):

I found Kristen Higgins and Liz Carlyle among quite a few others this year. Love them one and all!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Re: Sparks (1:03pm December 3, 2010):

Laura, Sparks sounds like a fun and interesting read. Sparky, a familiar, is a fire salamander, an elemental creature that's the embodiment of fire. He sounds like a very loveable and ornery pet. He jealously guards her from potential lovers -- sounds like a beagle I used to have. Whenever a date came over, she would situate herself on the couch between the two of us and growl if he tried to touch me -- except for my future and longtime husband. She barely growled at him, which was unusual for her since she hated men except for my dad and brother. LOL!

Anyway, getting back to Sparky. I'm not that knowledgeable about familiars. Were they people that were pressed into service. If so, does Sparky change into a man towards the end of the book, or does he stay a pet? Just curious if they can be released into human form.

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Re: Twins Under His Tree (2:24pm December 2, 2010):

Both my father and father-in-law were WWII veterans. My husband is a Vietnam veteran. Veterans are my heroes. They serve unselfishly for what they believe in. I can only imagine how hard it is for them to be far from home and missing their loved ones -- especially during the holidays. I love to read stories about war heroes, and your book sounds wonderful. God bless!

Re: A Christmas Odyssey (2:26pm November 26, 2010):

Henry Rathbone is the lead character in The Christmas Odyssey.

Re: Swift Justice (12:59pm November 17, 2010):

My husband and I don't have any children, so our Holidays are usually pretty low key. We either go to a relative or friend's house, or have them over to our house. I have always loved to bake cookies at Christmas time and give them to loved ones. Thanks so much for this chance to win! Happy Holidays to you!

Re: Deadly Fear (9:54am August 26, 2010):

I can relate to paranormal characters because I love the heroes and heroines. They have feelings and they also have their flaws like we do.
