Re: The MacGregor's Lady (8:10pm February 6, 2014):

Mr. Darcy is hard to top, but a Scotsman has many charms, to be sure! ;-)

Re: The Groom's Gamble (8:09pm January 5, 2014):

I love the cover for Wedded In Scandal! So romantic and lush.

Re: If Wishes Were Earls (6:55pm January 5, 2014):

Yea! Yea! Yea! I'm so excited to read this novel!

Re: Paws For Murder (12:52pm January 2, 2014):

I am so looking forward to reading this book! Oh, and I adore the title! :-)

Re: Bite Me, Your Grace (12:29pm December 17, 2013):

Congratulations on all the excitingness! :-)

Re: Undressing Mr. Darcy (11:41pm December 9, 2013):

Yes... But I would be blushing up a storm! I'll go with a Mr. Darcy and say Matthew Macfadyen :-)

Re: Bulletproof (11:28pm November 13, 2013):

I really enjoyed reading your post!

Re: Daughter Of The God-King (6:29pm November 10, 2013):

True! I guess that's why reading is the ultimate escape-- it takes you very far away from the real world! I love it! :-)

Re: Upon a Winter's Night (12:59pm November 7, 2013):

I love the gift-buying. I adore that 'click' I get when I see that perfect gift for someone! :-)

Re: Scion of the Sun (1:18am November 5, 2013):

Twilight got me into reading for fun! I can't wait to read your new novel! It sounds amazing!

Re: The Wicked Wallflower (11:13pm October 25, 2013):

Oh, most definitely. I've always been The Wallflower, or the person that guys only came to for advice. Both are pretty brutal when you're young. Now... it makes me realize, thanks to romance novels, that waiting for the right guy to notice you is worth the wait :-)

Re: My Lady Quicksilver (12:23pm October 5, 2013):

Not come back to bite me, per say, but one little white lie can quickly turn complicated. Lie about this, which means you have to lie about that... You either have to have an extraordinary memory to remember them all, or be an awesome storyteller. I do not have a extraordinary memory. *WINK*

Re: Long Shot (6:25pm October 1, 2013):

I have no idea! Will your book tell us? *GRIN*

Re: How To Entice An Enchantress (1:12am September 18, 2013):

The library, the library, THE LIBRARY! Ahem. But, yeah. The library.

Re: It Takes Two To Tangle (10:38pm September 12, 2013):

Mine is Missy Prissy-- and honestly, I've always loved it

Re: Against The Ropes (5:21pm September 6, 2013):

Against the Ropes sounds like a terrific story! *Swoon* I'm looking forward to reading it!

Re: Last Chance Reunion (3:59pm August 21, 2013):

I love suspense, because I love a good whodunit! And, of course, romance with everything :-)

Re: Three Days on Mimosa Lane (11:44pm August 20, 2013):

My family make sacrifices for me every day, due to a heath situation that limits me. I'm extremely blessed.

Re: A Cursed Embrace (10:25pm August 12, 2013):

Thank you for the encouragement and congratulations!

Re: Jaguar Fever (7:57pm August 1, 2013):

YUM! Loved that excerpt!

Re: Tall, Dark, And Vampire (7:54pm August 1, 2013):

All of those: UM, YES! :-)

Re: Rugged Hearts (8:37pm July 24, 2013):

I would have to say Jane Austen. Because of reasons. :-)

Re: Raspberries and Vinegar (11:06pm July 21, 2013):

I am into eating from scratch, as I cannot cook, haha ;-) I like to think I'm just enough country and just enough city!

Re: Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe (10:07pm July 19, 2013):

I can't wait to read this!

Re: Merger to Marriage (7:26pm July 14, 2013):

I LOVE I Love Lucy! I would have to go with the grape scene. It just gets me every time!

Re: If The Shoe Fits (10:09pm July 11, 2013):

That's where you have me, because I am ALWAYS drawn to the untraditionally romantic characters! :-)

Re: The Medic's Homecoming (9:09pm July 8, 2013):

I LOVE zombies! Warm Bodies was amazing. I read the book and saw the movie; and while both are quite different, both are equally awesome!

Re: Exposed (9:44pm June 26, 2013):

I can not WAIT to read EXPOSED!!!!

Re: One Day in Apple Grove (5:27pm June 13, 2013):

I haven't, no, but I hope to one day!

Re: It Had To Be You (6:55pm June 5, 2013):

Love you picks! Boys Like Girls are great. Adore Pink and Kelly. Plain White T's-- *SWOON*
I'm lovin' the Lucky Harbor series!

Re: True (5:35pm June 2, 2013):

Yes, I am very much looking forward to reading True!

Re: South Of Surrender (5:33pm June 2, 2013):

I enjoy very much reading about characters with challenges to face-- it makes it all the sweeter when they finally reach their much deserved happily ever after. How intriguing these characters sound, one who craves touch and the other wearies of it. Tension, indeed!

Re: A Wedding In Springtime (10:10pm May 2, 2013):

Both. Both. Definitely both. *Grin*

Re: Heart Of Iron (10:08pm May 2, 2013):

Whew! I'd take Will any day ;-)
A like a guy that isn't instantly anything-- but, rather, you discover amazing things about him a little at a time.

Re: Thrill Ride (8:21pm April 21, 2013):

Thanks for sharing about your novel, Julie! It sounds AWESOME!

Re: Night Demon (12:30pm April 14, 2013):

Nothing is sexier then a man who thinks ;-)
Oh sigh. I love me a good tortured hero. What ever does that say about me? *Grin*

Re: Flirting Under A Full Moon (7:24pm April 11, 2013):

Thank you for sharing your deleted scene with us! I love those special sneak peeks. Congratulations on your new novel! Whoo! :-)

Re: Bite Me, Your Grace (7:21pm April 11, 2013):

"works for a living" No! Say it isn't so! Excuse me while I swoon.
Huge congratulations on your new novel! :-)

Re: Sweet Madness (9:50pm April 5, 2013):

Purple. Yes, it fits very well. I am very much a queen, of course ;-)

Re: Darius (5:25pm April 4, 2013):

Oh, gosh. Lists, yes. I am such a list person it's embarrassing. But they calm me. So I guess that's something :-)

Re: Sinner's Heart (11:45pm April 3, 2013):

I definitely don't wait until every book is out until starting it! I don't have that much self control ;-) But I do try and read them in order. If it makes a difference, anyway. If the books are kind of series-yet-stand-alones, well, who knows. Maybe I'd go wild and read out of order ;-)

Re: Lush (11:43pm April 3, 2013):

Sounds LUSH! To much? ;-)

Re: Identity Crisis (10:29pm April 1, 2013):

I like art. I like to look at it, imagine what went through the mind of the artist while painting it- but I have no desire to own any of it. I like the fact that it hangs for everyone in the world to see.

Re: Sins of a Ruthless Rogue (8:38pm March 26, 2013):

Whoah! What a time you must have had! :-)

Re: The Forsaken (8:36pm March 26, 2013):

That's amazing. I think everyone has someone looking out for them.

Re: If You Give A Rake A Ruby (9:19pm March 21, 2013):

You are so right.
The hero can be all of those things, but maybe we don't know it at first. We have to earn, along with the heroine, that special look inside of him :-)

Re: The Geek Girl And The Scandous Earl (10:25pm March 14, 2013):

I'm so happy for you that everything worked out! I am so excited to read your novel!

Re: The Survivor (5:16pm March 10, 2013):

Know your neighbors. Become friends. Watch out for each other, watch over their houses when they are gone. That's how we do in our neighborhood. If we notice a car we don't recognize, immediately we're on the phone, asking if it's someone they know. Be aware. Pay attention to things around you, so you'll notice when they're different. Know your neighborhood. Be safe!

Re: The Blue-Ribbon Jalape?o Society Jubilee (6:08pm March 7, 2013):

This series sounds like it is going to be so much fun! I'm excited!!!!

Re: Lord Of Darkness (3:19pm March 4, 2013):

Sounds positively wicked lovely!

Re: The Christie Curse (10:47pm March 3, 2013):

I adore my family, so I think it would be a blast! I can't wait to read this book!

Re: Into the Spotlight (10:45pm March 3, 2013):

I've never been, but I want to! NEVER have I heard anyone say that had a bad time in Vegas. Neva! And that says something, right there.

Re: X Marks The Scot (4:27pm February 22, 2013):

My favorite bad boy... Damon!

Re: Checkmate, My Lord (4:26pm February 22, 2013):

Most of Kerrelyn Sparks' secondary characters! Lucky for me, she usually writes their stories ;-)

Re: The Mistress Memoirs (9:47pm February 20, 2013):

LOVE! I can't wait to read this new series!

Re: Cupid?s Shaft (8:25pm January 25, 2013):

Thank you for sharing your story with us, Desiree! I love reading author success stories-- gives me hope :-)

Re: The Missing Manuscript Of Jane Austen (6:54pm January 6, 2013):

Syrie! I am so super excited to read The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen-- just the title gives me shivers! :-)
Three rounds of revisions sounds super intimidating-- but I imagine when it's all done, and you're happy, and holding the finished copy in your hands with it's shiny new cover, that it's the greatest feeling in the world :-)
Wishing you nothing but the best!

Re: Prince Of Power (8:45pm January 3, 2013):

This series sounds amazing. Wow! I'm really looking forward to it.

Re: Christmas On Mimosa Lane (4:59pm December 26, 2012):

We get together and have dinner and open presents and run wild ;-)

Re: Love Thy Sister (8:26pm December 11, 2012):

Congratulations on your success, and thank you for sharing your journey. You should be deeply proud.

Re: Jane's Gift (8:19pm December 11, 2012):

Hundreds and hundreds! Haha ;-) But I'm really looking forward to Nearly a Lady by Alissa Johnson :-)

Re: Christmas Confidential (2:12pm November 28, 2012):

We put up the tree, eat a huge dinner with family and go light-seeing :-) I absolutely adore Christmas...

Re: A Christmas Bride / Christmas Beau (9:02pm November 27, 2012):

*Sigh* I love Christmas. And books. So Christmas books are the best :-)

Re: Blame It On Texas (1:49pm August 26, 2012):

Your book sounds wonderful, Christie! And as a huge fan, I know they always are!
I adore your grandma's quote!

Re: Sweet Deception (1:36pm August 13, 2012):

Needing help. It's like an instant reply for me. "Do you need some help?"
"No, thank you. I got it."
I can't help it! It's an inpluse! ;-)

Re: The Last Victim (11:12pm August 7, 2012):

First, I want to say a big CONGRATULATIONS on 31 years of writing! That is so, so amazing. I can't even... just amazing :-)
Second, that is such great advice! It's hard not to take negative comments to heart, but at the same time you need to be true to what feels right, not what someone else tells you they feel is right.
Your writing is amazing, you're amazing, just... keep being amazing! :-)

Re: Married By Midnight (6:39pm August 3, 2012):

I have no control when it comes to books, haha ;-) I dig in-- and hope I'm not left hanging! I'm looking forward to reading this series-- and glad to know you got to finish it! :-)

Re: The Secret Mistress (5:29pm July 31, 2012):

Oh, I absolutely adore beta heroes! I think I may even love them more than alpha heroes. *Gasps all around* I know! Scandalous ;-)

Re: Wicked At Heart (3:26pm July 30, 2012):

Your series sounds absolutely amazing, Danelle! I agree that heroes do impact a story very strongly. He has to be just right in our (reader) eyes, because we have to fall in love with him right along with the heroine! :-)

Re: The Officer Says I DO (2:06pm July 19, 2012):

I've always liked the way STFU sounds when you say it fast, haha ;-) (shut the f*** up)

Fire Alarm Response Team.
--No one thought that one might be a little to unfortunate?? ;-)

Re: Lord Of Fire And Ice (6:42pm July 5, 2012):

This book sounds amazing!! I can't wait to read it! Great interview!

Re: Wicked Nights (10:14pm June 29, 2012):

Lothaire in Kresley Cole's IAD series :-)

Re: Lady Amelia's Mess And A Half (2:50pm June 28, 2012):

Oh, man, I *really* try and only watch movies with happy endings-- I hate being sad! :-) All of the movies you named-- ugh. Just ugh. I can't! ;-)

Re: Sins Of The Angels (1:36pm June 24, 2012):

Great post! This series sounds fantastic!

Re: The Most Improper Miss Sophie Valentine (5:22pm June 22, 2012):

Oh, different is so important in reading! And romance writers are the best at bringing new ideas to the table-- such a creative bunch!

Re: A Gentleman Says "I Do" (5:06pm May 25, 2012):

Hi, Amelia! I soooo can't wait to read A GENTLEMAN SAYS "I DO"! It sounds wonderful and, guh, stunning cover!

Re: Lessons After Dark (8:29pm April 6, 2012):

Wow, this book sounds super amazing!! I'm going to be looking out for this one!

Re: Wedded In Scandal (4:54pm April 3, 2012):

Very great post! I absolutely can't wait to read Wedded in Scandal!

Re: A Scandalous Countess (10:00pm February 16, 2012):

I love all! As long as there's a good romance, I'm good :-)

Re: The Alchemy of Desire (1:57pm April 25, 2011):

I do love me some nice guys, but I also ADORE the wounded-warrior type hero! You know, the one's who need the love of their heroine to heal :-)

Re: Hidden Embers (6:20pm April 24, 2011):

Autumn. Not to cold, not to hot.... Sigh.

Re: The Devil in Disguise (6:17pm April 24, 2011):

Ohh! Book recommendations, definitely! I am a total book-aholic, so recs are always wanted :-)
