Re: Elliott Redeemed (9:23pm September 1, 2017):

I am honestly not too much into rock music. Maybe I should pay them more attention.

Re: In The Line Of Fire (11:38pm July 24, 2016):

I greatly admire Marines and enjoy reading about them.

Re: Fire Danger (11:35pm July 24, 2016):

Boy, that title Fire Danger comes up just as I watched a terrible fire in California shown on the news. So terrible.

Re: The California Gold Rush Romance Collection (11:31pm July 24, 2016):

We have a Yellow Lab named Buddy that we love dearly. He is truly a member of the family.

Re: Forever Dusk (12:13pm February 14, 2016):

Love is mentioned as the strongest emotion, but reading the daily newspaper or following the internet makes hate seem to hold that distinction. The things that are being done throughout the world today because of hatred just overwhelm one. It would be wonderful if love could halt the harm that hate is causing.

Re: The Cowboy's Bride Collection (12:00pm February 14, 2016):

I attended Hardin-Simmons University where the football team is the Cowboys and the band is the Cowboy Band. The college is located in West Texas where I was surrounded by lots of cowboys. They are interesting and very friendly individuals and books about cowboys are my favorites.

Re: Always Watching (11:51am February 14, 2016):

I love working in my yard. I find it very relaxing and lets me forget any troubles I might have.

But as a suggestion to you for a trip not to miss, the most interesting and beautiful place I ever visited was the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The hotel is a huge castle originally built as a stop on the Canadian Railroad. At the back of the hotel is what is called "The Million Dollar View" which includes a waterfall, stream, beautiful golf course surrounded by huge Christmas-tree-like trees and gorgeous mountains. The employers of the hotel wear kilts and a bagpipe player plays out front daily. The daily buffet must be seen to be believed. My daughter insisted I take pictures of that buffet. The town of Banff Springs is delightful and in walking distance of the hotel for shopping as are marvelous free gardens. Tours to other Canadian towns and attractions can be arranged for at the hotel. The whole area is fabulous. It makes for a dream-come-true vacation.

Re: How To Wrangle A Cowboy (11:32am February 14, 2016):

My mother lost her father when she was very young and my maternal grandmother was left to care for my mother and three other children. My father's mother died when he was only four and his dad was left with three children to raise including my father. Both parents drifted to wherever they could make a living for their children. So my maternal grandmother and my paternal grandfather ended up in Santo, Texas where they picked cotton to provide for children. At very young ages my mother and father met picking cotton in the cotton fields of Santo and eventually fell in love. It was a love and marriage that lasted their lifetimes.

Re: Divorced, Desperate, and Daring (2:46am December 27, 2015):

How about a hardback copy of the author's own book or a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People"?

Re: Divorced, Desperate, and Daring (2:42am December 27, 2015):

A fingernail file, a doorstop, a paperweight, one's dentures, cowboy boot, a corkscrew, grass clippers, bottle of champagne, victim's own picture, dog collar, a hairbrush.

Re: Marrying Mr. English (Part 2) (2:04am December 27, 2015):

I read every book with a Christmas time theme I can get my hands on. It is a great time of year. I even read The Miracle of 34th Street again this past week.

Re: Harvest Moon (1:54am December 27, 2015):

I was reading a book about a huge snow storm and I thought about White Christmas and found myself humming the song. I also love the movie of the same name and have watched it many times. Then I checked my email and read about some college students claiming that White Christmas should be banned "because it is racist". I wondered how they ever made it to college.

Re: Once Upon a Power Play (1:34pm November 20, 2015):

I love a lot of sports. Football is my No. 1, but hockey is exciting, too.

Re: Resist (1:29pm November 20, 2015):

When you mentioned making mistakes when writing it made me think of the last book I read. The author didn't know the difference between crocheting and knitting and kept making the heroine do both at the same time.

Re: Katie in Waiting (1:24pm November 20, 2015):

I have s complete set of Christmas cookie cutters and make real fancy decorated cookies for the children and their classmates.

Re: Darkest Misery (12:04pm August 14, 2015):

Sexy boyfriends would make for great fun.

Re: Hope Harbor (10:33pm July 10, 2015):

Ryan Molloy from Rancher at Risk, by Barbara White Daille. He as such a nice guy.

Re: Change Of Heart (10:28pm July 10, 2015):

Amish people are simply interesting subjects, their life style is so unique.

Re: The Rescued (10:26pm July 10, 2015):

My favorite pie is pecan pie. Topping it with vanilla ice cream makes it special.

Re: Love's Rescue (10:59pm June 15, 2015):

I love cowboys, Te West is simply romantic for a scenery and cowboys entrance.

Re: Against the Tide (1:04am May 29, 2015):

I would love to take a slow trip through Canada. Their gardens are fabulous!

Re: Passionately Yours (1:01am May 29, 2015):

Sounds like lots of action in this story. Intriguing!

Gladys Paradowski

Re: A Rancher's Christmas (10:52pm August 27, 2013):

My town would need to include a nice cafe, a bookstore and a park.

Re: High Country Rebel (10:50pm August 27, 2013):

I find Wyoming a fascinating place to read about. The state itself makes me think of cowboys and romance. Your books are totally enticing.

Re: Plain Fear: Forgiven (12:17pm August 2, 2013):

I read about both good and bad boys. After all, variety is the spice of life (and books>)

Re: Rugged Hearts (12:21pm July 24, 2013):

My grandmother was a tremendous influence in my life. She was such an humble, kind, sweet, and helpful person and her advice helped me to make friends much-easier than I feel I would have otherwise. Everyone simply adored my grandmother.

Re: Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir (8:35pm July 23, 2013):

A house in Ireland sounds wonderful. I hope you enjoy it even more than you feel like you will

Re: Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe (1:22am July 19, 2013):

Cupcakes are making me hungry. I love them, but, alas, I'll have to settle for something else in a minute. LOL

The book sounds great!

Re: Flirting with Disaster (9:22pm June 9, 2013):

I dislike a conceited, cocky hero. A bit of humility is very inticing.

Re: Dream Nights with the CEO (5:45pm June 5, 2013):

I enjoyed sharing your day. Surprised that you and hubby rescued the mouse. Most folks would have bid it farewell. LOL

Re: True (8:35pm June 1, 2013):

I had a wonderful time in college, My dorm roommate was delightful and we still keep in touch by mail although we live several hundred miles apart. Boy, I would gladly relive those days were it possible.

Re: South Of Surrender (8:31pm June 1, 2013):

The subject of disabilities is very timely with so many returning from the current war. The scenes in real life of such soldiers being welcomed so warmly is heartwarming.

Re: Flora's Wish (10:55pm May 23, 2013):

I presume the villian gets his comupance...Right?

Re: Kissing the Maid of Honor (10:54pm May 23, 2013):

I haven't every experienced a kissing booth either; but I can invision one.

Re: The Sword Dancer (10:52pm May 23, 2013):

Reading about China is interesting, so I would love to read your book!

Re: The Summer I Became A Nerd (10:50pm May 23, 2013):

I am a nerd when it comes to keeping up with politics. After taking a government class in college, I just can't help myself. LOL

Re: Lady Vivian Defies A Duke (10:48pm May 23, 2013):

Lady Vivian Defies a Duke sounds intriguing! She must show a lot of nerve! LOL

Re: Father By Choice (11:57pm April 30, 2013):

I have read both. With the breakup of families nowadays, I guess romances with children involved are realistic.

Re: The New Rules for Blondes (12:38pm April 24, 2013):

I love the idea! And I love books containing humor. I prefer to laugh, not cry, when reading.

Re: Loving the Rain (12:52pm April 22, 2013):

'Got a chuckle out of your double negatives. for that is a mistake made so often. I cringe each time I hear a football coach on TV say, "My team played good today."

Re: Thrill Ride (1:48am April 21, 2013):

Boy, what a thrill ride! I am ready to hop aboard!

Re: A Man for All Seasons (12:52pm April 20, 2013):

I am superstitious about the number 13, but I don't really know why. The Bible mentions angels, so they must exist.

Re: Mr. Perfect (12:20pm April 19, 2013):

The book I am currently reading is well-worth recommending. It is The Struggle by Wanda E. Brunstetter. She makes her characters so realistic and actually there is great advice given in places in the story. The book so outshines the last book I read that there is no comparison.

Re: Love, Lies, and British Spies (9:53pm April 15, 2013):

You must have fun mentally picturing those handsome, inticing guys. Makes me wonder how many are inspired by guys you have known during your lifetime.

Re: Bite Me, Your Grace (10:29pm April 11, 2013):

Your heroine sounds facinating. So different from ones that a reader usually meets.

Re: Flirting Under A Full Moon (9:32pm April 11, 2013):

Ir was interesting to learn that authors have "babies." I had never seen that term used in such a situation.

Re: March With Me (9:38pm April 8, 2013):

I am white, but I remember how kindly my father treated blacks and how much the blacks loved him. My father set a great example for me and everyone who witnessed his actions. Actions do speak louder than words.

Re: Last Chance Book Club (11:35pm April 6, 2013):

I just finished reading a book where the hero played first base on a baseball team. I guess it is an appropriate subject at this time of the year. Your book sounds more interesting.

Re: Darius (9:26pm April 4, 2013):

Hubby keeps lists for everything and I plan to start doing so. It seems I stay busy all the time, but still can't accomplish everything I need to.

Re: Once Tempted (10:04pm April 1, 2013):

I dearly love to travel and always say that "G" stands for Gladys and "G" stands for G0. But the most memorial trip I took was a train trip from Texas to Banff Springs, Alberta, Canada. Viewing the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona, the vastness of the Pacific Ocean in California and the unbelievable beauty of the gardens in Canada from a picture window in the living room of the train's sleeping car
was an education in itself. Staying in the magnificent castle, the Banff Springs Hotel, with the kilt-clad employees and the bagpiper seemed like a trip to Scotland.

Re: Revenge On Route 66 (10:42pm March 29, 2013):

I have a very good friend whose birthday is April 1st. I can easily remember her birthday, for she starts April and my birthday, April 30th, ends the month.

Re: Identity Crisis (9:53pm March 27, 2013):

I find it hard to believe that many folks can successfully duplicate a great painting. It would seem to me that an artist's technigue would show. Maybe I am wrong.

Re: Sins of a Ruthless Rogue (6:30pm March 26, 2013):

Boy, what an experience you had getting to Russia, but what memories you must have of the country and congratulations on using those experiences in your book.

Re: Sins of a Ruthless Rogue (12:06pm March 26, 2013):

Rogues are always intriguing.

Re: The Forsaken (6:31pm March 24, 2013):

What a delightful story! I hope I do have an angel watching over me.

Re: Lord of the Keep (10:28pm March 23, 2013):

I prefer the cover of Lord if the Hunt. I do not have an e-reader, so do not read e-books. I love browsing in a bookstore and am definitely attracted by book covers.

Re: Nickeled-And-Dimed To Death (1:31am March 22, 2013):

I had never heard of an author being called greedy for writing more that one book a year. I think readers get anxious for another book if they enjoy one by an author. I do get confused when an author goes by many different names.

Re: When She Was Gone (10:12pm March 20, 2013):

I was born in a large city and still live there, but I attended college in a small town and loved it. My home is in an area that has a civic club with rules, but I enjoy it.

Re: Falling Into Paradise (9:44pm March 18, 2013):

Bad boys might cause havoc in real life, but they make mighty interesting subjects in books.

Re: Buried In A Bog (12:13pm March 18, 2013):

You make Ireland seem like a great place to visit. When I was about 9 years old, I was part of a group who was taught to dance the Irish Jig so that we could perform it at thw Miller Memorial Theater in Hermann Park in Houston. I can still dance the Irish Jig and it definitely does set one's toes to tapping.

Re: Buried In A Bog (1:15am March 17, 2013):

Your comments are outstanding and you make Ireland sound like an especially-interesting place to visit. It is no wonder that your book is selling so well. Congratulations!

Re: The Geek Girl And The Scandous Earl (11:50pm March 14, 2013):

I am glad you did not give up and I say: "Congratulations!"

Re: Out Of Circulation (10:06pm March 10, 2013):

Your books sound great. I especially loved hearing about the Maine Coon Cat. I am anxious to "meet" him or her.

Re: The Survivor (6:34pm March 5, 2013):

We hsve block captains in our meighborhood and any crime is reported to them and the info is emailed out to everyone. This truly keeps us up to date on what is happening and what to watch out for. Reports of strange persons and strange cars are reported so ao can be on the lookout.

Re: The Christie Curse (8:36pm March 3, 2013):

Sounds like you and your daughter had quite an experience. I am afraid working with my mom or daughter would prove a disaster. lol

Re: Greta and the Goblin King (7:43pm February 24, 2013):

I am an outdoors person, so I like summer. Fall can be nice, too, before the weather turns too cold. I don't like being loaded down with sweaters or coats.

Re: Gold Fire (10:47pm February 22, 2013):

I love the plot you mention and look forward to reading it. You also solved a mystery for me. I always wondered why so many writers write in so many different names. I never thought about publishers requesting it. It gets confusing for me.

Re: X Marks The Scot (10:22pm February 21, 2013):

There is a "high good time" to be had when reading about the Highlanders. Looking forward to this story.

Re: Checkmate, My Lord (10:19pm February 21, 2013):

I will say Wilhemina from Some Girls Do by Leanne Banks. She was a problem for her dad. She met all of her problems by overeating. He tried hard to find her a husband, but was unsuccessful.

Re: The Mistress Memoirs (9:31pm February 20, 2013):

The very title "rogue" is intriguing. This excerpt is one of the most-enticing I have read in a long time. I am very anxious to learn the outcome.

Re: Murder Hooks a Mermaid (10:42pm February 17, 2013):

Oops! That should have been "tbe gardens and scenery "ARE" gorgeous. My English Professor might see this. LOL

Re: Murder Hooks a Mermaid (10:37pm February 17, 2013):

I,too, love to travel. I tell everyone that "G" stands for Gladys and "G" stands for G0. If you wish to visit a fabulous place, visit Banff Springs. Alberta, Canada. The gardens and the scenery there is gorgeous.

Re: The Eldritch Conspiracy (8:27pm February 12, 2013):

Movie producers take too much liberty in changing the story as it was written. Some times they let authors help in making the movie, but many actions in the book are not dramatic enough to please the producers. Also, the book may cover too long a period of time and much is deleted in the movie script.

Imagination can be very nice and reach a plateau that movies can't reach.

Re: A SEAL's Seduction (4:00pm February 11, 2013):

I have never used a cover over my book cover. If the picture there was so depraved that I would feel it would be embarrassing, I doubt that I would be interested in reading the book.

Re: Seven-Night Stand (1:17am February 10, 2013):

Since I was born in and have lived in a huge city all my life I love story settings in small towns. I did attend college in a smaller town and the people were so friendly. I loved being there.

I love stories about cowboys and ranches, also.

Re: Fly Away Peta (9:07pm February 8, 2013):

My hero is Michael Wingate from Some Girls Do by Leanne Banks.

Re: Once Again A Bride (10:51pm February 7, 2013):

I have a lot of antiques in my home, mostly handed down from my father and mother and a beloved aunt. I love them. We have friends who have a totally modern home and to me it is "cold." I will admit my home is much harder to keep dusted amd polished.

Re: Lady Eve's Indiscretion (10:45pm February 7, 2013):

Horses are beautiful animals. Living in a huge city, I don't own one, but I love reading stories about both cowboys and horses.

Re: To Brie or Not to Brie (10:05pm February 5, 2013):

I love to listen to a singer who can stand at the mike and sing without the noise that drowns out the singer and you can';t hear the words. Amplication is way overdone. And when someone keeps yelling the same words over and over and over, I could scream.

Re: Beyond Valor (12:27pm February 5, 2013):

With a husband who is a military man I look forward to reading your books.

Re: Soul Deep (12:24pm February 5, 2013):

Soul Deep sounds great! Since my husband and I met when we were in Junior High School and became very good friends long before marrying this story sounds s bit like our story and I definitely recommend knowing each other well before tying the knot.

Re: Secret Santa Baby (12:18pm February 5, 2013):

Since I have no e-reader I am not into e-books, but someone as enthusiastic as you are is bound to put the necessary effort into writing a story to make it truly interesting. Congratulations!

Re: Blue Ice (10:39pm February 3, 2013):

I am a bit familiar with some of the activities of ICE, having read of their work in our local newspaper. But I would enjoy learning more. Homeland Security has a special responsibility currently, since Al Qaeda had treatened our country this week because of the U.S. helping France in Africa. Your book is very timely.

Re: Murder for the Halibut (10:32pm February 3, 2013):

The sled dogs are just gorgeous and I love the plot of the story. I am amazed that you chose to go to such a territory to "get away from it all." I am sure you viewed some beautiful scenery. Congratulations on you choice of adventure.

Re: The Autumn Bride (12:07pm February 2, 2013):

I have never joined a book club but it is quite a coincidence that I found myself only this week comparing the writing styles of two different authors. I have read three books already this week by two diffent authors and the characters of one of the authors were so believable. Their actions and reactions were so like how real people do so. The storyline and characters of the other author left me thinking the author must have worked to write the most books, not the best books she could. I kept feeling "no body would do that."

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (11:57pm February 1, 2013):

I don't recall reading a book about a big family, but I lived across the street for years from a family of eleven children. Boy, they would have made a book! The children were so different and in constant conflict.

Re: Murder for the Halibut (10:27pm January 29, 2013):

Boy, that is some family you have! If all their friends buy your books, you have it made. LOL

Re: Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (10:23pm January 29, 2013):

I have heard so much about Pride and Prejudice, but have never read it. Your blog reminds me that I should do so..also your book.

Re: Falling for her Fiance (12:42pm January 24, 2013):

I absolutely love hum0r in books and it takes an intelligent person to provide real humor.

Re: Real Men Don\'t Break Hearts (12:40pm January 24, 2013):

The plot of your book sounds great. The characters do sound like real people. Congratulations

Re: The Officer Breaks The Rules (12:37pm January 24, 2013):

Actually my own life went somewhat like this. I had met my now-husband when we were in Junior High School, though attending different schools. We were friends for a long time, but did not get romantically involved until many years later. We attended different colleges...his in our hometown and mine in another town. We dated many others, but eventually got together.

Re: After the Rain (2:17am January 21, 2013):

I have often wished I could take back words I have said in haste.

Re: Live And Let Love (6:38pm December 29, 2012):

Sounds like great reading. Hope I'm lucky.

HAPPY NEW YEAR1

Re: Love Thy Sister (6:49pm December 12, 2012):

Boy, having to learn so many languages was quite an accomplishment. It must be nice to be able to communicate with so many people. It took a while for your writing career to take off, but congratulations on your persistence.

Re: Holiday Man (2:25am November 25, 2012):

Hoping to enter your contest here.

Re: How To Tame A Willful Wife (4:03am November 18, 2012):

Chuckled at the ways to calm a willful wife.

Love does, indeed, make the world go round and reading about it makes the world more interesting.

Re: A Wedding In Apple Grove (3:59am November 18, 2012):

I chuckled at your comments about those who keep the story going. Gossips can make life interesting.

Re: The Curse (1:41pm September 16, 2012):

I do not have an e-reader and have never read an e-book. I love having a book in my hand and I read constantly, keeping a book started at all times. I definitely have books I can't bear o part with.

Re: Deception (5:17pm July 30, 2012):

Gee, but you seem normal. You could have been describing most everyone. I guess that is why we fantacize that we look like the horoines in the romance stories.
'
But just be grateful that everyone doesn't look like fashion models. They look either starved or ill. LOL

Re: Wicked At Heart (2:37am July 29, 2012):

I often find myself falling for the hero in a romance novel. I like heroes who are witty, kind and strong. ButI was surprised to read that you never write about the same hero twice.

Re: Creating Fate (9:18pm July 23, 2012):

Hubby and I met when we were in Junior High School, but then for years we led very different lives. Eventually we got together and married, but then his service responsibilities caused a separation again. So I do understand the effects of separations. I do believe that absense can make the heart grow fonder, for you realize the sadness of separation from someone you love.

Re: Sacrifice of Passion (11:46pm July 22, 2012):

I was not familiar with Dexter, but his daddy seems a terrible influence on him. His advice seemed to be anything but what a guy needs.

Re: Scotsmen Prefer Blondes (11:40pm July 22, 2012):

I enjoy both Regency and modern romances. Variety is the spice of reading.

Re: The Officer Says I DO (1:05am July 20, 2012):

When my grandmo would get really mad about something, she would say in exasperation, O.U.S.S.L.Y. Sadly, I never asked her to explain it even though I heard it many times. Does anyone know what it means?

Re: The Reluctant Matchmaker (8:47pm July 10, 2012):

I am 5'2" and I always seemed to be asked out by guys over 6' tall. I think they got a charge out of towering over me. I ended up marrying a fellow 5' 5" and it is great. No cricks in the neck.

Re: Deep Autumn Heat (4:47pm July 6, 2012):

Meeting over a coconut cake. What a sweet beginning for a romance.

Re: Lady Amelia's Mess And A Half (7:48pm June 28, 2012):

I just finished reading War Cloud's Passion by Karen Kay. The heroine is a white and the hero is an Indian. Their customs, beliefs, etc. are so different and the setting is at a time when Indians and whites were battling for territory. One learns a great deal about how life was at the time. The couple face what seems like unsurmountable obstacles, but it is an interesting picture of the times.

Re: Invitation To Scandal (11:15pm June 26, 2012):

What would I like to be? A successful gardener. My green thumb seems to be some other oolor. I try hard, spend a lot of time at it, as well as cash, but my plants tend to fold up and die.

Re: Sins Of The Angels (11:06pm June 24, 2012):

You have a great sense of humor, but there may be more truth than humor in your reasons that writers write. LOL

Re: Honorable Rancher (11:26pm June 21, 2012):

My dad and mom were both avid readers and it just was expected in my family that we would read a lot. There were books all over the place and the same is true here at my home.

Re: Her Forbidden Hero (8:40pm June 19, 2012):

What a delightful subject...a true hero. Coming from a long line of military relatives this sounds like my kind of story. Congratulations!

Re: The Casanova Code (9:43pm June 18, 2012):

Casanova Code sounds great. I am amazed at the number of people who now meet strangers via the internet. In the past most met at school, church, various dances and such.

Re: No Ordinary Sheriff (11:48pm June 17, 2012):

I hare to learn you are leaving Ordinary, but I am sure Accord will please me as well.

Re: Undead And Unstable (11:50pm June 15, 2012):

Enjoyed your message of gratitude for how writing has improved your life. Congratulations on your success. And thanks for the excerpt!

Re: The Wild Wood Enquiry (5:31pm June 14, 2012):

Round tower?

Re: A Fatal Fleece (8:37pm June 12, 2012):

Your characters do seem like old friends and getting to know them even better is great fun. When they "surprise you" they certainly surprise us readers. Great work!

Re: Joy Ride (4:47pm June 10, 2012):

I had never heard of Seventeenth Summer, but you gave me an interest in reading it even though I am far from seventeen. There are so many books that sound ineresting and so little time to read. I insist in reading something every single day.

Re: About Last Night (10:54pm June 9, 2012):

I love the excerpt! What a delightful approach. I would fall for it, too. LOL

Re: Soul Bound (12:47pm June 5, 2012):

I am afraid I would have to say there is a limit to how bad a hero I would pull for.

Re: Home For The Summer (11:34pm June 4, 2012):

We had umpteen youngsters in our small neighborhood when I was growing up and we thought of all sorts of things to do..from climbing trees to planning picnics. When I went away to college it was great to come home, see my family, go places with my high school chums, even date a few of my high school classmates. I enjoyed college, but I loved my hometown, too.

Re: Big Sky Country (1:47am May 31, 2012):

Of course I should have checked my spelling and not left the "a" out of qualities.

Re: Big Sky Country (1:46am May 31, 2012):

I can well understand your difficulty in choosing one of the heroes over the other. They each have their great qulities and weaknesses...so true in real life.

Re: Seeker Of Shadows (1:42am May 31, 2012):

I just finished reading a book that had me hating to take a break from reading it and at the same time hating to have the book end. It had humor, a wonderful hero, lots of action and didn't have me feeling that the book was written just to include sex scenes. The book was When Two Hearts Meet by Janelle Mowery. I throughly enjoyed reading this book. I hope to find more such books.

Re: Under Fire (7:06pm May 15, 2012):

My hubby, too, is an Air Force guy; but we haven't had to move as often as you. I have found meeting so many folks connected to the military to be very interesting and actually very educational...so many hometowns, such different experiences,etc.

Re: The Wedding Beat (7:02pm May 15, 2012):

I knew my husband to be from the age of about fourteen, but, of course, had no idea that we would some day be wed; but I feel like I hit the jackpot.

I agree with you that there is a guy involved in every romance, but I find it surprising that you are around so many couples, yet are single. It looks like the love bug would bite you, too. Maybe it will some day soon.

Re: A Wild Night's Bride (6:55pm May 15, 2012):

This story is intriguing. From the blue eyes, the hand kiss to the finish...a winner!

Re: A Lady's Revenge (5:52pm April 26, 2012):

You seem to have chosen an unusual beginning for your story, but I bet it grabs the reader from the "git go." I look forward to finding out.

Re: Enraptured (5:47pm April 26, 2012):

I haven't read a book lately that contains a true villain. Sounds intriguing.

Re: Illicit Intuitions (12:49pm April 11, 2012):

I have seen the word Pinterest, but am in the dark as to how it operates and don't feel I have the time for it. I am not on Facebook and hate the fact that so many companies and sites almost try to force you to join Facebook to have any interaction with their site. Do you really like a company or site if they have to blackmail you into joining Facebook? I prefer sweepstakes or contests to interact with authors.

Re: The Devil and Miss Jones (4:01pm April 9, 2012):

Boy, sixty books is some milestone! Congratulations!

And titles are very important. I love the "The Devil and Miss Jones" title. It does get away from the too-familiar type of title that makes one think of a book they have already read. This title is intriguing and will definitely interest those searching for a new book.

Re: One Hot Cowboy Wedding (3:55pm April 9, 2012):

Cowboys are just naturally interesting. Their lifestyle is romantic as is the areas they live in, Texas in particular. "One Hot Cowboy Wedding" sounds delightfu!

Re: Trouble Me (3:49pm April 9, 2012):

I love the way the couple meet at the bar. I like guys who aren't too pushy and Rob sounds like my kind of guy.

Re: Wasteland (6:09pm April 6, 2012):

Evidently you are constantly on the alert for story ideas. Maybe your friends had better be on the alert before they find their actions in your book. LOL

Re: Sanctuary Cove (8:21pm March 29, 2012):

Books are much more interesting that the plots shown on T.V. and even at the movies. Small towns especially present the residents in events that are heartwarming and believable.

Re: The Chase (8:17pm March 29, 2012):

The minute I saw the words "cold case" I thought of what is currently going on in Houston with the successes that a cold case squad has experienced of late. A native Houstonian, I am definitely interested in reading this book

Re: Wildest Dreams (8:13pm March 29, 2012):

I love books set in the Western part of the U.S. There is just something romantic about the lives lived in that rugged part of our country. "Wildest Dreams" soundd intriguing.

Re: Sex, Lies and Contracts (5:29pm March 27, 2012):

That "wolfish grin" plays a big part in making a hero appeal to me. My heart goes pitter-patter when a good looking guy grins at me. Muscles and abs are much less important in a hero as is being six-foot tall. Short guys can be very sexy.

Re: The Wings Of Morning (5:25pm March 27, 2012):

The Amish are interesting people. I didn't realize they did not fight in the war, but I am facinated by their lifestyle.

Re: Texas Baby Sanctuary (5:20pm March 27, 2012):

OOps. That should have been "than a cowboy?"

Re: Texas Baby Sanctuary (5:19pm March 27, 2012):

This native Texan loves stories about Texas. What is more romantic that a cowboy?

Re: Against The Night (10:19am March 10, 2012):

I find myself loving old movies more than most current ones. Too much animation and not enough real actors and actresses. Not being interested in Startrek has caused me problems when working the crossword puzzles in the paper. I am very familiar with your books, however, and know you are a great writer.

Re: Under The Covers (10:14am March 10, 2012):

I had never thought of comparing children leaving home with having a book out on its own; but I see what you mean. Waiting to see how well a book sells must be a quite an experience. Best of luck with Under the Covers.

Re: Obsidian (9:00pm March 3, 2012):

Oops. I meant "pictured the characters." It has been a long day. I pulled up weeds in my front yard and I am tired. LOL

Re: Obsidian (8:59pm March 3, 2012):

I enjoyed reading about how you pictures the characters. Obsidian sounds intriguing.

Re: Darkest Highlander (9:43pm February 6, 2012):

I enjoy magic. It adds a special dementon to a story. my heroes don't always have to be tortured, but they need to be strong individuals.

Re: Chosen By Sin (9:21pm February 1, 2012):

You are so right about evil in this world. Just reading the daily paper makes one wonder about the actions happening around the world. You are also right that good exists in the world. Let's hope it is more than the evil.

Re: Double Dare (11:11pm January 28, 2012):

I'd say cowboys for their rugged lifestyle.

Re: Falling For The Fireman (5:19pm January 24, 2012):

Firemen risk their lives and save so many lives. A story about them would be wonderful to win.

Re: Amazon Heat (1:38am January 23, 2012):

Novellas can be great. Often one doesn't really have the time to read a longer story, but still want to read. The novellas I have read have proven very satisfying and your Brazillian rain forest setting adds an interesting part to your Amazon Heat novellas.

Re: Dreamers (1:30am January 23, 2012):

I daydream quite a bit. I do know my background, but after reading your story, I found myself wondering how it would be not knowing expected facts about myself. It would certainly be strange. Would I constantly be seeking the missing information? Would I meet people and wonder if they played a part in my past? You have written a fascinating and thought-provoking story.

Re: Banshee Charmer (1:20am January 23, 2012):

Banshee Charmer sounds absolutely wonderful. If there is anything I enjoy reading in a book it is humor. The hero here provides it beautifully. The nerve of entering a home uninvited and making oneself so at home paints a picture of a guy who will make life (and a story) both fun and entertaining. He's my kind of guy!

Re: Sex, Lies and Surveillance (3:52am January 19, 2012):

Of ouurse I meant "Loved the excerpt."

Re: Sex, Lies and Surveillance (3:51am January 19, 2012):

Loves the excerpt. Intriquing beginning. Congratulations on an interesting storyline.

Re: Hidden Summit (3:12am January 18, 2012):

This was an interesting interview. I was amazed that a successful author suffered through eight years unable to sell a book. Thank goodness she did not give up. Her readers (including me) would have missed so much.

The name of Leslie's ex-husband is Greg.

Re: Lure of Song and Magic (2:06am January 18, 2012):

Yes,there are a lot of magical things in the world. The magic of a bud turning into a beautiful flower, an egg becoming a beautiful bird, the birth of a darling puppy or kitten, and on and on. There have also been times when I thought of someone out of the blue and then found out they had problems I could help them with. One needs only to look for magic and they will find it.

Re: Bride By Mistake (12:24pm January 12, 2012):

I enjoy reading about marriages of convenience, but I am not sure I would want to be in one with anyone. I spent a long time choosing my husband and enjoyed the picking. LOL

Re: Mozart's Last Aria (8:46pm December 27, 2011):

It would be interesting to read about Mozart. I know nothing about his personal life.

Re: Finding Felicity (8:42pm December 25, 2011):

We received a large number of Christmas cards and I was honestly surprised that by far most of them had a religious theme. This thrilled me, for I hope people are beginning to realize what Christmas is really about.

Re: The Nine Lives Of Christmas (8:27pm December 25, 2011):

Well, Christmas day is coming to a close. It has been a nice day and I am grateful for the kind deeds of friends and family and looking forward to a nice New Year. I wish you the same.

Re: Lady Seductress's Ball (8:01pm December 19, 2011):

I love cookies that contain lots of pecans. The cookies can be vanilla or chocolate, but I love crunching on pecans.

Re: Sleight Of Paw (7:56pm December 19, 2011):

I wear my blouses and tops out loose for comfort and to not have to be constantly retucking them into my slacks. Twice lately someone has taken my picture at a meal event where I am seated and the blouse is sticking way out across my lap. In both pictures, I look like I weigh 300 pounds and actually I am a small person.

Re: Mistletoe and Margaritas (12:14pm December 11, 2011):

I prefer warm weather for I love to work in the yard.

Re: Until There Was You (10:44pm November 16, 2011):

Boy, does your comments about the prom bring back memories of my high school days. There were definitely the in-crowd and those overlooked. I had a nice time in high school, however, and hubby and I still meet once a month with a group of graduates from our high school. We're the Tiger Lunch Bunch!

Re: The Highlander's Heart (10:39pm November 16, 2011):

You have given David a realist portrayal and I am anxious to meet him. Congratulations!

Re: Demons Prefer Blondes (11:00pm June 20, 2011):

I throughly enjoy reading romance stories. I like realism, but happily-ever-after stories. I don't want to read stories or see movies that make me feel sad or cry. Why do that if there is no actual reason to do so.

Re: Money Shot (12:50pm June 10, 2011):

I love dialog, but I must admit I enjoy reading about the setting,also. The book I am currently reading is set on a beach front in Florida and reading about the water, sunsets, seagulls, fishermen, etc. adds a lot to the story. I sorts place myself in the location and it is fun. But, gosh, a book wouldn't be a book without interesting dialog. So I love both.

Re: The Alchemy of Desire (1:01am April 25, 2011):

Oops! That should be "definitely."

Re: The Alchemy of Desire (12:59pm April 25, 2011):

I like variety. but nice guys are detinitely welcomed. Alpha males can be too much so. I like nice guys in real life, so I love reading about them, too.

Re: Vowed In Shadows (8:37pm April 11, 2011):

I would like to be Libby from Sable Hunter's "Cowboy Heat." Se is talented, but modest about it. Ranches and cowboys provide the perfect plot for romance.

Re: The Paris Secret (7:21pm January 22, 2011):

My favorite librarian is one at our local library. She's young, attractive and very knowledgable. I have had occations to deal with her many times...from when I needed help to when I was donating books to the library. She is always smiling and cheerful.

Re: Deadly Heat (7:12pm January 22, 2011):

I read a bit of every type of book. I enjoy humor, but read just every book I can get my hands on and then share them with others.

Re: The Spy Who Saved Christmas (11:46pm December 12, 2010):

I love Christmas cards...both sending and receiving. I pin the ones we receive hanging down on velvet ribbons on the wall in our entry way. They become so colorful displayed that way. Folks who visit us during the Christmas season invariably look for their card. I later use the fronts of the cards when wrapping the following year's Christmas packages. Cards are not just left lying around at our house. I also love Christmas carols for they have such an inspiring reaction from folks. What do we bake? Cornbread dressing with chopped up celery and onion and lots of sage. Smells heavenly and tastes the same. Merry Christmas to you!

Re: Sparks (8:47pm December 4, 2010):

Sparky sounds great. Phychic, fire department, lots of excitement. That's for me.

Re: Twins Under His Tree (6:49pm December 2, 2010):

During World War II our whole nation was involved. There were victory gardens, high schools sold victory bonds and such, women took over jobs in amunition factories, products were rationed, in short the war was on everyone's minds. Today's wars seem to be ignored except for families who have members serving in them. Those fighting today deserve the same appreciation and respect as those who fought during World War II. Thanks for writing a book that reminds us of that fact.

Re: Second Chances (12:34pm November 30, 2010):

P.S. I know of a couple that are enjoying a second chance. Their names are Terri and Clay and both had very unfortunate first choices.

Re: Second Chances (12:28pm November 30, 2010):

Second chances can bring happiness that was missed the first time around. It would be sad if nobody were given a second chance at romance if they were very unlucky the first time. In many cases couples just were not met for each other but did not find this out until later. I enjoy reading about second chances.

Re: Her Kind of Hero (9:37pm November 24, 2010):

I had attended the same church since very small, so by the time I was in the Junior High Department in Sunday School I knew all the young people at our church. One Sunday I was sitting in the main auditorium of the church and a friend was seated next to me. On the other side of my friend there was a new boy whom my friend obviously knew. I asked my friend whom the new boy was and he told me. It happened that the new boy had just moved to town and had started attending the same school as my friend and my friend invited him to our church. Well, not only did I end up marrying that new boy although years later and my friend who introduced us that Sunday in church ended up being a groomsman at our wedding.

Re: Angel in My Arms (12:16pm November 22, 2010):

The Civil War was an intesting time in American history. Now I wasn't there of course, but I have read a great deal about it and actually have visited some of the locations where the battles were fought. You book sounds intriguing.

Re: Swift Justice (2:01am November 18, 2010):

We do a lot of decoration starting on Thanksgiving afternoon; but I just can't get into the shopping mood until December. I always fear that the person will purchase an item before I get to give him or her the same.

Re: The Taming Of The Wolf (1:57am November 18, 2010):

Wolves and more wolves it seems. Loved the David Letterman take-off. LOL The genre seems to be really taking off, too!

Re: Miracle Baby (5:06pm November 17, 2010):

Rory O'Brien is the kind of hero a book should have. He is the kind of person who makes the world a better place. Congratulations to you for creating Rory O'Brien and may his tribe increase!

Re: The 3rd Secret (6:00pm November 10, 2010):

You seemed to have had a rough go in life for awhile, but are fortunate to have an understanding husband. My congratulations to you for attempting to help others who havc similar experiences. Your efforts are greatly appreciated, I am sure.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Re: Casting About (12:47pm November 9, 2010):

Let's make that "unpossible" into "impossible." It is almost midnight and I am sleepy. LOL

Re: Casting About (12:45pm November 9, 2010):

I read a lot of fiction stories and enjoy them greatly; but I just finished a story that stretched the plot to such far-fetched limits that it seemed like the author was just trying to add stuff to give the book additional pages. So I found out that it is possible to add too many unpossible events to a story.

Re: The Devil She Knows (7:05pm November 6, 2010):

Our family gathers at our house for Thanksgiving, but, sad to say, the number has shrunk through the years instead of grown. But we have both turkey and ham and all the trimmings and truly enjoy being together. Maybe memories of those no longer with us make us more appreciate those who remain. After eating Thanksgiving dinner, the young males in the family always decorate our yard for Christmas and they go all out. They place lights in the trees, flower beds and all over the place. We get lots of compliments on their work. It really gets us all into the Holiday spirit. Those lights burn nightly until New Year's night.

Re: Holiday Grind (10:01pm November 5, 2010):

I love many foods at the Holidays, but if I must narrow them down to one, perhaps it might be
Fruit Ambrosia. Since my husband is diabetic, I don't bake all the sweet stuff I did; but we still have great feasts during the Holidays.
Happy Holidays to you!

Re: Pinned for Murder (5:55pm October 27, 2010):

Developing a character must be an interesting experience. Thanks for sharing some ideas of what it is like.
