Re: Merger to Marriage (11:23am July 14, 2013):

I love reading a good book. I never try to figure out why I like a book, I either do or don't like it. Your book sounds great. I like the chocolate factory story-line on Lucy the best.

Re: If The Shoe Fits (4:23pm July 12, 2013):

Re: Winning a Bride (4:36pm July 5, 2013):

I don't care for a very short novella. When I read a story, I want to read the story, not a preamble to the story.

Re: Paradise Valley (4:20pm July 4, 2013):

I've never read any of your books, but this one sounds like a great place to start.

Re: Prince of Secrets (6:46pm July 3, 2013):

For most of my life I had various dogs, one at a time. However I now live in a nursing home where they are not allowed. I get my dog fix now when people bring their therapy dogs in so we can pet them.

Re: If The Shoe Fits (11:32am June 21, 2013):

I love listening to Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole these days. All his music has a Hawaiian sound to it.

Re: Widow Of Gettysburg (11:20am June 21, 2013):

I like to look at book trailers, but it's the blurb that influences my purchase a lot more.

Re: One Day in Apple Grove (8:05pm June 16, 2013):

No, I've never been to a reader' event, but they do sound like a lot of fun.

Re: The Fireman's Homecoming (6:52pm June 12, 2013):

Now I read a lot, but I used to do crewel pictures, some needlepoint and I also knitted. My hands no longer allow me
to do those things.

Re: Summer at Mustang Ridge (6:47pm June 12, 2013):

We always made lots of different cookies for Christmas, but it was always chocolate chips cookies that was our favorite. So now we just make chocolate chip cookies and eat them as we sit around the Christmas Tree and open our gifts.

I also like your playlist, but I prefer quiet while I'm reading.

Re: Sweet Revenge (4:05pm June 3, 2013):

Your idea for a hero sounds interesting, but I've never read a historical romance unless the hero was rich. I'd like to try it once.

Re: Katie's Choice (4:22pm June 2, 2013):

I like reading about lifestyles that are different from my own, including about the Amish, which is very different and so much simpler than ours. Look forward to reading KATIE'S CHOICE.

Re: Five Days in Skye (4:16pm June 2, 2013):

Your book sounds great. Would love to read it. I too have read a number of Scottish Historicals, but never run across a modern Scottish story.

Re: Lady Vivian Defies A Duke (6:51pm May 24, 2013):

I haven't read too many series books, though I did enjoy the ones I did read. The most important thing to me is reading a good book, and your book sounds great.

Re: When The Morning Glory Blooms (11:23am May 22, 2013):

I am disabled and now live in a nursing home due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. As I became more disabled over the years and less able to participate in activities, I have lost touch with friends and family. I now depend on one sister, her husband and her daughter for outside companionship. I hardly ever see my other sister and her kids and grandkids. So keep healthy.

Re: Seducing Charlotte (11:15am May 19, 2013):

As long as the story is good, I don't care how it starts, although it is a bit unusual to start with a hot scene.

Re: Past Due (6:58pm May 17, 2013):

I've learned that the older you get, the faster time moves forward. So enjoy what you have while you can.

Re: Changing Lanes (7:15pm May 15, 2013):

I am disabled by rheumatoid arthritis. If it were possible, I would not have that.

Re: The Practice Proposal (6:17pm May 11, 2013):

I love to read highlander stories, however I don't think I could live the life.

Re: Heart Of Iron (11:23am May 7, 2013):

I don't have set ideas on how a hero should act, except being protective of the heroine. Different stories require different heroes, if the story is good, I'll like the hero.

Re: Fearless Heart (10:47am May 5, 2013):

Your story sounds like one I'd love to read. I grew up hearing my father's stories about how tough the great depression was. He was always affected by it. During the worst part of it the only work he, his father and uncles could get was with the WPA.

Re: Lord of the Mist (10:53am May 4, 2013):

Re: By Hook or By Crook (10:53am April 28, 2013):

Look forward to reading this book.

Re: Honorable Rancher (11:32am April 27, 2013):

Re: Mr. Perfect (6:46pm April 21, 2013):

I too miss the local bookstore. I prefer to hold books in my hand to read. My favorite author is Julie Garwood, but it's her historical novels that I love. I've reread any number of them more than once.

Re: Bite Me, Your Grace (7:39pm April 11, 2013):

This book sounds interesting. Would love to read it.

Re: Last Chance Book Club (7:12pm April 7, 2013):

Re: Darius (6:41pm April 4, 2013):

I try to think through a problem first, but if no solution comes to me I try to talk to friends and family about solutions.

Re: Secrets of a Runaway Bride (10:39am April 3, 2013):

I love all Julie Garwood's historical romances. Especially FOR THE ROSES, a western, and LYON'S LADY, a regency. I've read both of them numerous times over the years.

Re: Once Tempted (7:49pm April 1, 2013):

I've gone on a number of interesting trips, but unfortunately none that changed my life.

Re: Second Chance (4:31pm March 31, 2013):

If I were to go back in time, it would be further back than 1998. That wasn't that great a time for me.

Re: A Shot Of Sultry (7:02pm March 28, 2013):

I guess the most romantic gift I ever got was a dozen red roses for my birthday.

Re: The Forsaken (4:47pm March 24, 2013):

I live in a nursing home and I think the nurses and aides come close to being angels. They are always here for us. But, I also think I am watched over by angels, although I've never interacted with them.

Re: Lord of the Keep (7:28pm March 23, 2013):

Congrats On the reprint. The cover can grab my interest, but the plot is the most important thing.

Re: Nickeled-And-Dimed To Death (7:25pm March 23, 2013):

I love reading, but I do get confused when an author writes under more than one name.

A bad has t want to change to really change in order to successfully do so.

Re: The Eldritch Conspiracy (7:20pm February 13, 2013):

Re: Seven-Night Stand (6:37pm February 9, 2013):

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (5:03pm February 1, 2013):

Re: Deck the Halls With Love (12:06pm January 31, 2013):

Your book sounds like a great read. Would love to win it. When I read a book, I usually enjoy it fot itself, not thinking about future books about other characters in that book.

Re: Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (4:32pm January 28, 2013):

When I was younger, I never thought about redo's, But now I am in my 70's and I wish I could redo some of my financial decisions.

Re: Wedded In Scandal (4:27pm December 22, 2011):

Re: My Favorite Countess (12:00pm April 28, 2011):

I always liked Marcus Welby, M> D. and Dr. Kildaire (not sure of spelling). I just don't seem to have much interest in doctor dramas on TV anymore. As far as doctors in books
they are as intersting only if weel written.
