Re: It Happened One Midnight (3:22pm July 3, 2013):

Sounds fab! I cannot wait to read it!

Re: Lord Of Darkness (10:37am March 4, 2013):

I absolutely adore Historical Romances and find that Hoyt's way of incorporating action in the Ghost of St. Giles theme to be smart and unique!

Re: Fever (2:01pm January 25, 2012):

Great post Joan and lovely interview with Cindy! I love her Black Ops series. I just discovered them earlier this month and just love the balance of suspense and romance in the novels. I wonder, is maintaining this balance churning in the back of your head as your write?

Re: Ecstasy Untamed (4:02pm October 26, 2011):

Most imaginative movie? Maybe the Harry Potter movies or Avatar. Those ones definitely made me think, wow! Where do people come up with this?

Re: The Lady Of The Storm (5:19pm August 4, 2011):

Wow, this is a new to me author! Would love the chance to win and read her work! Cover and blurb look and sound amazing!

Re: Too Hot To Touch (5:18pm August 4, 2011):

First crush for me was my neighbour in kindergarden! is that too young? *bites nails* I got the lead as Mary for the Xmas play and he was Joseph. I put his arm around me and I was in heaven. Literally. We made baby Jesus, LOL!!
