Re: Dead, White, And Blue (2:50pm May 30, 2013):

I want to be Annie Darling and marry Max Darling. I love the characters.

Re: Changing Lanes (6:29pm May 16, 2013):

Spend more time doing what I love.

Re: What A Mother Knows (4:57pm May 6, 2013):

I usually only skim through those scenes anyway.

Re: Identity Crisis (3:23pm March 27, 2013):

I vividly remember the first time I saw a real Rembrandt.

Re: Buried In A Bog (8:56pm March 17, 2013):

I am partial to things Irish (since my name is Shannon and my eyes are green).
Happy St. Pats!

Re: Out Of Circulation (6:53pm March 10, 2013):

I love cozies, and books, and cats, and mysteries!

Re: The Christie Curse (7:37pm March 3, 2013):

It would be fun and crazy making. Certainly not dull.

Re: Deadly Patterns (6:14pm December 15, 2012):

My grandmother's homemade fudge. I also like the green wreaths made with
corn flakes, green food coloring, marshmallow cream and red hots. Oh, and
lace cookies, too!

Re: A Christmas Bride / Christmas Beau (3:13pm November 27, 2012):

Sounds like perfect reading for the holidays.

Re: A Wedding In Apple Grove (3:34pm November 16, 2012):

This looks like it will be a good one.

Re: What The Cat Saw (6:48pm November 10, 2012):

Sounds like a fun read.

Re: Mistletoe Cowboy (3:22pm October 26, 2012):

I definitely read for character development. My favorite series have very well
developed characters.

Re: Return Of The Border Warrior (3:10pm October 17, 2012):

I may be weird, but I've always liked old sea shanty's and Irish folk songs.

Re: Death, Taxes, and a Sequined Clutch (3:43pm October 16, 2012):

Breakups are never fun, but they are inevitable. You spent most of your early
years trying to figure out what does and doesn't work in a relationship.

Re: Construction Beauty Queen (6:20pm September 30, 2012):

I have recently relocated to a small town from a large city and I love the fact
that the worst traffic jam is when you get stuck behind a tractor.

Re: Allergic To Death (9:31pm August 18, 2012):

Sounds like some fun reads.

Re: Hearse And Buggy (10:21pm August 17, 2012):

I loved the Little House Books.

Re: Scotsmen Prefer Blondes (2:24pm July 21, 2012):

I like the period, setting and history of Regencies.

Re: A Fatal Fleece (3:06pm June 11, 2012):

Congratulations. I look forward to checking out this series.

Re: Home For The Summer (7:38pm June 4, 2012):

A week at the beach for family vacation, two weeks each at both sets of
Grandparents, summer camp, swim lessons and playing outside -- of course,
that was all before adding in band camp!

Re: The Proposal (1:48pm May 4, 2012):

Sounds like it will be a good one.

Re: The Landlord's Black-Eyed Daughter (1:37pm August 10, 2011):

Sounds like an interesting book.

Re: The Mysterious Lady Law (2:40pm February 4, 2011):

I read both (characters and authors) who are men and women. Some are better than others.

Re: At Hidden Falls (4:04pm January 25, 2011):

I come from a family of readers. I don't remember a time without books.

Re: Dating Mr. December (9:13pm November 22, 2010):

This sounds like it will be delightful.

Re: The Forever Queen (4:57pm November 11, 2010):

I'm reading Winston Churchill's the History of the English Speaking Peoples right now and this book would go right along with it!

Re: Holiday Affair (6:20pm November 1, 2010):

I'm lucky if I get my Christmas cards out by Valentine's day.

Re: Highland Hellcat (3:29pm October 15, 2010):

Tab!

Re: Love Me (10:01am September 24, 2010):

I'm more attracted to colors and the general "feel/mood" of the cover than the people.

Re: Guarding Grace (4:43pm August 30, 2010):

I like my monsters with more than a touch of humanity.

Re: Tomb With A View (10:55am July 19, 2010):

Ghost stories used to scare me to death...and I really hated haunted houses...

Re: Murder in the Abstract (10:52am July 15, 2010):

I like the quote: "Better to have love and lost, than to wake up next to a psychopath the rest of your life."

Re: To Conquer a Highlander (2:36pm July 12, 2010):

Books, especially juvenile horse books and vintage Nancy Drew.

Re: The Wild Irish Sea (1:12pm July 8, 2010):

I love the ocean/sea/beaches and Irish accents (would love to visit Ireland someday)...

Re: Crush On You (5:05pm July 7, 2010):

I like friends to lovers, but in real life I also like lovers to friends transitions...

Re: Crush On You (12:39pm June 11, 2010):

I don't remember. Probably jeans and a t-shirt (in college).

Re: Blown Away (10:49pm May 30, 2010):

I love to read series (mostly mystery) and tend to read them as I can. I do like to read in order, but some of the best series I have ever read I happened to discover after the first book. I have gone back and read them in order when possible.

Re: Sex And The Single Earl (12:36pm May 19, 2010):

You spend much less time in traffic in a small town so you can actually have relationships!

Re: On Folly Beach (12:05pm May 18, 2010):

Nothing like trips home to bring back the memories. I was fortunate in that I was able to be with my grandmother (and my mother) the last week of my grandmother's life.

Re: Web Of Lies (12:04pm May 18, 2010):

I like a variety -- but you can't beat a good old-fashioned who dunnit.

Re: Rumor Has It (11:17am May 7, 2010):

Sounds like a lot of fun. I want to check it out.

Re: In Shelter Cove (5:53pm May 4, 2010):

Those that live at the beach!

Re: Dead Head (4:42pm April 14, 2010):

How well do we really know anyone?

Re: On Shadow Beach (4:27pm April 7, 2010):

I love covers that evoke a mood or feeling.

Re: The Highest Stakes (1:09pm April 1, 2010):

I love horses and horse racing and would love to read this book. Thanks!

Re: The Highlander's Sword (2:48pm March 17, 2010):

Happy St. Pat's. Thanks for the overview of the Celts.

Re: The Stolen Crown (12:10pm March 15, 2010):

I love historical fiction (and rely on authors to be historically accurate).

Re: The Scarlet Lion (10:56am March 11, 2010):

Music is definitely a mood changer/enhancer.

Re: The Cowboy From Christmas Past (4:19pm March 9, 2010):

She sounds like a trip. She would have gotten along great with my Nana.

Re: Lake Magic (1:39pm March 2, 2010):

I am not sure when I read my first romance novel but there have been some memorable ones.

Re: Island Of The Swans (12:29pm February 8, 2010):

Thanks for the insight into the writing process.

Re: Viking in Love (4:38pm February 4, 2010):

I am actually going back and reading the classics right now -- I'm almost finished with Sense and Sensibility. I want to reread Jane Austen before I read the novels that are sequels to Pride and Prejudice written by a contemporary author.

Re: My Dearest Mr. Darcy (1:40pm January 7, 2010):

I pretty much shut my eyes during birth scenes (but do like the line from Gone With the Wind -- especially because she assured everyone she was an expert).

Re: Over My Dead Body (1:53pm November 17, 2009):

Happy Thanksgiving. We are always adding new "traditions" into our Thanksgiving. When my Chinese sister-in-law joined the family, we started trying to add a bit of Chinese flavor to the festivities (although she LOVES green bean casserole).

Re: Possess Me At Midnight (3:38pm October 22, 2009):

Thanks for the insight into the process...

Re: The Lute And The Liar (12:56pm October 7, 2009):

Great advice!

Re: Cleopatra's Daughter (12:14pm September 14, 2009):

Sounds exciting, and very interesting.

Re: Loving Mr. Darcy (11:30am September 10, 2009):

I'm a bit of an armchair traveler myself! That is why I read...

Re: Air Time (2:50pm August 25, 2009):

I love the idea of a "You Never Know Day"...

Re: It Happened One Night (4:18pm July 31, 2009):

I work at a research university -- so am always hearing about very cool research.

Re: The Diva Takes The Cake (11:29am July 24, 2009):

Thanks for the heads up. I am always on the lookout for a new author...

Re: The Texas Twins (5:58pm June 3, 2009):

My favorite authors can never write as fast as I read...one good reason to revisit old favorites and classics.

Re: Beneath Bone Lake (10:17am May 28, 2009):

some snakes and spiders, but not all

Re: 6 Killer Bodies (12:56pm May 12, 2009):

Thanks for the suggestions!

Re: Let It Ride (4:05pm May 11, 2009):

You can always catch up on another series if you have on-demand!

Re: With a Twist (2:04pm May 8, 2009):

Yup. I have to be patient when I wait for my favorite author's next book to come out -- for some reason, I read much faster than you can write!

Re: Red Kiss (2:16pm May 7, 2009):

Thank you for the insight into the business and creative side of things.

Re: Sea Lord (12:43pm May 5, 2009):

Most romances are fairy tales!

Re: Fight Fire With Fire (2:32pm May 1, 2009):

Thanks for the insight.

Re: Wild Heat (11:24am April 30, 2009):

I started reading romances before I found Judy Blume (and then couldn't understand why the library wouldn't let me check out Judy Blume with permission).

Re: The Madness Of Lord Ian Mackenzie (2:41pm April 29, 2009):

I like heroes that are real, but someone I would be drawn to.

Re: Rescue Me (3:15pm April 26, 2009):

Thanks for the insight into your creative process.

Re: The Secret Mistress Arrangement (5:45pm April 22, 2009):

I haven't met my prince charming yet so who knows...

Re: Killer Keepsakes (12:39pm April 21, 2009):

The shower is also a great place to solve problems.

Re: While My Sister Sleeps (1:51pm April 17, 2009):

Yep, artists/writers are also business people.

Re: The Texas Twins (3:55pm April 15, 2009):

Do what you love and the recognition may or may not follow -- but then you won't care if you are doing what you love.

Re: The Accidental Human (3:13pm April 13, 2009):

I've been known to pick up a book because of its cover. I love spring colors, pinks and greens for some reason.

Re: Last Gasp (9:53am April 10, 2009):

Its interesting how much we are influenced by the reading we pick up from other people (especially at our grandparents houses).

Re: 4 Bodies And A Funeral (4:40pm April 8, 2009):

Sounds like a fun course to take.

Re: Dragonbound (11:58am April 8, 2009):

You've got to tell the story that is in you.

Re: Rewriting Monday (3:51pm April 7, 2009):

Congratulations on the new book.

Re: Would-Be Witch (3:57pm March 16, 2009):

Paris (20's) or Hawaii just about anytime in the contemporary era.

Re: Scandal (1:05pm March 6, 2009):

I forgot to mention my favorite series -- Angelique (long out of print)

Re: Scandal (1:04pm March 6, 2009):

I like historicals because I love to learn about how people lived in other times and places.

Re: Vexing The Viscount (11:36am February 13, 2009):

Thanks for the insight. (I hope I win!).

Re: Millionaire's Secret Seduction (5:07pm February 12, 2009):

It was a soap opera that taught me that a handsome guy could lose his attractiveness when he behaved badly.
