Re: Three Days on Mimosa Lane (6:27pm August 16, 2013):

My parents were part of The Greatest Generation and as such they never thought of it as sacrifice. However, they very rarely spent money on themselves. They didn't go to the movies, or a show. They stayed home with their (nine) children and taught us what family was. It wasn't until I was much older that I realized the importance of their humble life style and dedication to the family. Sacrifice? They never thought of it as such.

Re: Three Days on Mimosa Lane (4:46am August 16, 2013):

My parents sacrificed everyday for me and my 8 siblings. My parents were part of The Greatest Generation as as such had lived through the Great Depression and WWII. The thought nothing do "doing without" in order to feed, house, and clothe their children. They were awesome people.

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (9:08am August 5, 2013):

My path right now is retirement. After many years of strict 'time management' I am learning to relax!

Re: Second Ride Cowboy (2:03am July 28, 2013):

Re: Rugged Hearts (1:20am July 24, 2013):

I had a boss who believed in me and encouraged me to "be all that you can (I could) be"! With his encouragement, I completed my 4 year degree (night school) and earned several good promotions at work.

Re: Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir (3:03pm July 22, 2013):

I am so very impressed. How wonderful for you and your hubby. I have never done something so life changing. However, my parents sold everything and moved to Florida (from Pa.) with 6 of their (then) 7 children after a 2 week vacation! They had one more child after moving (Mom was 48 and Dad 50 when the last was born). It was really life changing for all of us.
The bravest thing I did was enroll in Junior college at the age of 32. I was newly divorced, raising my 2 children, with a small house, yard, and a demanding job. Yet, I somehow managed to eventually earn several degrees including a BS in Business Administration!

Re: An Open Heart (11:22am July 21, 2013):

I have read many life after death books. Yours has an interesting twist to it. I think I would enjoy reading it.

Re: Rancher to the Rescue (1:41am July 17, 2013):

The one thing that shocked me was his lack of empathy toward others and his infidelity.

Re: Charm and Consequence (2:44pm July 15, 2013):

Growing up my brothers and their friends were all teasers! What one didn't think of the others did! It was constant teasing. I can't believe that I actually miss it now! ;o)

Re: Wish You Were Here (1:05pm June 29, 2013):

I remember my grandmother taking me by the hand to see a re-release of Gone With The Wind. I couldn't have been more than 6 or 7 years old. It was so awesome. Years later I bought a copy of the book, I must have been all of 11 by then. I took a flask light and read the book under my bed covers late at night. This was the start of my devotion reading.

Re: Wish You Were Here (7:53pm June 27, 2013):

I remember hiding under the sheet reading "Gone With The Wind" as a child of about 10. My Grandmother had taken me to see the movie and I wanted to read the book to see if it was the same.

Re: Just Beyond the Garden Gate (9:42am June 24, 2013):

My cousin and I had a date to meet male cousins at a local hang out. We showed up, but the male cousins were short one. We waited and when a friend of theirs showed up he was incorporated into the group to replace the missing male cousin. I ended up marrying him about 6 years later.

Re: Summer at Mustang Ridge (8:49am June 11, 2013):

Our best family tradition is "The (family name) fudge". Its a recipe that my grandmother used and my 3 sisters and I continue the tradition. It is rich and creamy and definitely addicting! Did I mention that the best part is 'licking the spoon (or pan!).
Great giveaway and I loved the write-up! I am from a family with 9 siblings!

Re: It Had To Be You (1:41pm June 4, 2013):

Believe it or not...I like noise when I read. I think it comes from being raised with 8 siblings! The house was almost always noisy!!

Re: True (12:11pm June 2, 2013):

I also worked full time and went to school full time during the last year. I was also divorced with two teenagers and was 50 the year that I graduated! LOL and loved every minute of it!

Re: South Of Surrender (11:55am June 1, 2013):

Over coming physical impairments adds to the flavor of the book and the strength of the character. I enjoy books like this!

Re: Lord of the Mist (9:55am May 4, 2013):

This sounds like a great read!! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

Re: Married By Midnight (7:41am August 3, 2012):

When I find a new to me author that I really like, I go to their website and see what else they have to offer. If the book that I liked is part of a series, I will try to obtain the other books of that series. If the author has yet to finish the series, I keep up-dated and buy the books as they become available. So my answer would have to be, I do both. If the series is complete, I buy them all, if not... I (not so) patiently wait for them to be released.

Re: A Scandalous Countess (2:56am February 17, 2012):

Brenda Hiatt had me for the Regency era when she said..... I happen like my heroes a bit less . . . adorned. (And, okay, cleaner. Beau Brummell did us Regency afficionados a big favor when he popularized daily bathing!)How wonderful that much of the 'heaviness' of the Georgian era was left behind including the aromas! LOL... The Regency Era brought in the more modern thinking also giving way to heroines with more interesting characterizations. I choose Regency.

Re: Sins Of The Highlander (8:05am January 12, 2012):

Is this the first time you have co-authored with Connie Mason? Was it weasier or harder than writing on your own?

Re: Embrace The Highland Warrior (8:08am November 1, 2011):

I grew up in an old 3 story Victorian house. It was about 100 years old when my family and I lived there....and still setteling....floorboards creaked....pipes rattled. Therefore "things that go bump in the night" just remind me of my childhood and give me a warm comfortable feeling.
