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

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

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):
