Re: My Highland Spy (7:13pm September 9, 2014):

I have only been to Jamica, Mexico and the Cayman Islands. I would love to travel more. My oldest has been living in Germany for the past two years and has been to twenty different countries.

Re: Anointed (6:02pm March 6, 2014):

I would see the future.

Re: Donna of the Dead (6:00pm March 6, 2014):

Picked up my first YA by Holly Black. Instantly realized that YA isn't necessarily kid stuff.

Re: What The Groom Wants (5:58pm March 6, 2014):

Love your books.

Re: If Wishes Were Earls (5:06pm December 30, 2013):

LoL six big strapping brothers. Sounds like a new series to me. Love the concept.

Re: Billionaire Blend (3:56pm December 7, 2013):

I love coffee. Your mysteries have everything I love a great story, coffee and food. Love the recipes.

Re: A Brew to a Kill (10:13pm August 6, 2013):

Love the recipe for chocolate ricotta muffins. I love a good cozy mystery with a hot cup of latte.

Re: A Brew to a Kill (10:11pm August 6, 2013):

Love the muffin recipe. I love to bake. Coffee and a murder mystery sounds perfect.

Re: The Medic's Homecoming (5:30pm July 8, 2013):

I enjoy zombies, but I am a bit of wimp. I can't watch anything too gory. I loved Zombieland also.

Re: When The Morning Glory Blooms (6:57pm May 21, 2013):

I keep most of my friends. I no longer talk to my constant friend from high school. Sadly, I realized that she really wasn't my friend.

Re: Flora's Wish (6:47pm May 21, 2013):

love the concept of a Lady Pinkerton. Thank you for sharing your stories.

Re: Lush (11:25am April 3, 2013):

love the cover. the book sounds great and I would usually avoid any books with a rock star hero.

Re: Identity Crisis (4:47pm March 28, 2013):

I have Starry Night on my bedroom wall. I think that original art has so much more impact than prints. But I would not spend millions to have the original on my bedroom wall. However, I do admire what J. Paul Getty did with his money. The Getty Museums are a wonderful and a truly great gift to us.

Re: A Shot Of Sultry (3:31pm March 28, 2013):

My sweetheart of 31 years, built our new home six years ago. Just for me. Because I can sit for hours in a hot bath, reading.

Re: The Survivor (1:07pm March 8, 2013):

I live in a very rural area. So the crime is much, much smaller. We don't lock our cars or houses. But there has been several sexual assaults. Many, many times women are under the influence. So my advice would be to never drink to excess. Do not leave your drink unattended. Rape is always wrong and just because you were under the influence does not make you responsible for your rape. But be aware that drinking to excess will make you vulnerable to bad people.

Re: Hot Ticket (12:43pm February 28, 2013):

Wow, I am having a hard time topping these great comments. A good friend knows you and likes you for who you are. They enjoy your company as you enjoy theirs. They have your back during the hard times.

Re: The Eldritch Conspiracy (2:49pm February 12, 2013):

I love the movie versions of some of my favorite books. I love Lord of the Rings, Jane Eyre, The Secret Garden, and, of course, Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth. I hated the movie version of Practical Magic. Ugh, double ugh. Personally, I would love to see a movie version of Georgette Heyer. With her delightful dialogue and great characters, it could be fantastic.

Re: The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (4:09pm December 6, 2012):

I love historical romances and I love them to be accurate. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Escape (7:52pm October 21, 2012):

I love history. Your story sounds wonderful.

Re: Deadly Little Lies (10:12am September 19, 2012):

My favorites are Lord of Scoundrels, Cotillion, I Start Counting, anything by Jane Aiken Hodge or Mary Stewart. I have books which are over 40 years old.

Re: Immortally Yours (12:09pm August 27, 2012):

I love it. The werewolf cellphone article cracked me up the most. so true.

Re: Sweet Deception (10:30am August 13, 2012):

I never want to give up on any project. Failure is not an option. Unfortunately, the smartest thing would be to give up on a doomed project and go on to a more successful project.

Re: Demon's Bride (2:02pm May 2, 2012):

I love commoner heroes. Some of my favorite historicals have featured successful commoners.

Re: Wedded In Scandal (3:28pm April 3, 2012):

Love your books. I greatly enjoyed Wedded in Scandal.

Re: Darkest Highlander (2:55pm February 6, 2012):

It depends on the author. I love paranormal and history when written by Teresa Medeiros and Amanda Quick. I don't enjoy it as much when Elizabeth Thorton and Liz Carlyle. I think the reason is that I love Thorton and Carlyle's straight historicals so much.

Re: Roommates (1:26pm October 4, 2011):

Damain, Dominic, Alex, Shane, Tom, Jack, and Malcolm are fav. Currently, I am watching mostly comedy on tv. I like the show, The New Girl.

Re: Sweet Justice (4:31pm September 3, 2011):

Scariest was the murderer in Ashes to Ashes by Tami Hoag.

Re: The Full Moon Bride (2:28pm August 1, 2011):

Love reading about India. Look forward to reading The Full Moon Bride

Re: The Devil in Disguise (3:31pm April 23, 2011):

I love book recommendations from authors. Also, I find whenever an author writes about something that she is passionate about, the newsletter is great. For example, Loretta Chase writes about history. Lilith Saintcrow writes about writing.

Re: Scandal of the Year (3:55pm March 4, 2011):

Hmmmm, I am a lifelong reader of genre fiction. Give me characters that I care about and I want to read t he book. I think that it is more important for the author to have the twist than the other. If you don't care about what you are writing or get bored, it will impact the writing.

Re: The Irish Princess (7:11pm February 1, 2011):

I love the Elizabethan period. The story of Gera sounds fascinating.

Re: Deadly Identity (7:54pm December 30, 2010):

I don't know anyone who doesn't feel satisfied when they take the time to write what is in their hearts.

Re: Precious and Fragile Things (7:26pm December 17, 2010):

Precious and Fragile sounds great. Hope it is wonderfully successful. Have a wonderful holiday ladies.

Re: Seducing The Duchess (6:10pm October 6, 2010):

I have been reading romances since age 11. I read Georgette Heyer's A Convenient Marriage. I was thereafter a romance addict. I remember when I found and read The Flower and The Flame. It was great. I am not ashame of romances. Why be ashamed of enjoying a book. I rather read about happiness and romance than doomand gloom any day.

Re: Wicked Highlander (2:48pm September 15, 2010):

I love Jason and the argonauts. Love to have the story of Hercules and others be true.

Re: Don't Cry (3:26pm August 28, 2010):

I have a huge TBR. Would be very worrisome if my book pile was not a foot high.

Re: Nemesis (3:24pm August 28, 2010):

Looking forward to fall, the reading season is starting. Love your site and the reviews.

Re: Silent Truth (8:30pm April 19, 2010):

My passion is books. I purchased a bookstore this year and enjoying it greatly.

Re: The Highest Stakes (4:13pm April 1, 2010):

I love the history of horse racing in the 18th century. Sounds like a great story.

Re: Something About You (5:21pm March 19, 2010):

love the excerpt. Love suspense. Hitchcock is my favorite director. My favorite tough guy is hard to choose, but I always loved Rod Taylor. I loved him in Marnie.

Re: The Scarlet Lion (2:35pm March 11, 2010):

Oh definitely, I have songs to the soundtrack of my life. Certain songs take me to a certain event and time. Of course, when "our" song plays, I remind my husband that it is our song. He always gives me the bewildered look.

Re: Accidentally Demonic (1:49pm February 17, 2010):

Hi Dakota: I greatly enjoy your books and your twits

Re: Over My Dead Body (4:40pm November 16, 2009):

Happy Thanksgiving Michelle..in my house, I make the banana bread. My teen son loves it. I love to have good smells coming from the kitchen. I was much thinner in my younger days. I realize now that I didn't eat. so my kids learn early to grab a can and give it to me as a hint to cook. Isn't that sad? Now I cook all of the time.

Re: Highland Rebel (3:19pm September 3, 2009):

I call it being in the zone. When it happens, it is the most satisfying feeling in the world.

Re: Dragons Prefer Blondes (11:33am August 29, 2009):

I prefer to read interviews. I love to watch trailers, but I prefer to read interviews.

Re: Red Kiss (3:58pm May 7, 2009):

I love the excerpt to Tatooed Butterfly.
sounds great.

Re: Comfort Food (4:12pm May 3, 2009):

Honestly, I need a big pile of books waiting be read. It makes me feel secure. If I had a cd player in my car, I would go for an audio book. IT would make the commute go faster.
