Re: Falling for the P.I. (9:09pm August 18, 2015):

I like books with kids if they fit the storyline, because kids bring so much depth and humor to a story.

Re: At Ease (9:07pm August 18, 2015):

My least favorite word is horrific. It was used so often on 9/11 that no matter where it's now used it brings me back to that sad day.

Re: Island Dreams (9:03pm August 18, 2015):

I love Mackinac Island in northern Michigan. No gas powered vehicles and great fudge!

Re: Penalty Play (8:44pm August 13, 2015):

I want to connect to the characters' emotions and get caught up in their journey to their HEA.

Re: Courtship of the Cake (8:59pm June 23, 2015):

I love a classic carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

Re: The Spring Bride (8:54pm June 23, 2015):

I love reading romance for the character's journey towards their HEA.

Re: At the Spy's Pleasure (1:23am May 27, 2015):

I like second chance stories. It's interesting to see how the character's have changed in their time apart...and how they're still the same.

Re: A Family for the Bull Rider (1:18am May 27, 2015):

I don't have a favorite, but I'll be looking out for Harve now!

Re: Heart of a Bull Rider (1:14am May 27, 2015):

I've never been to a live rodeo. I've only caught bull riding on TV, so I don't have one favorite rider. But I'll be watching out for Reese now!

Re: Against the Tide (1:09am May 27, 2015):

I'd love to travel Route 66. I think that would be fun and educational.

Re: Passionately Yours (1:06am May 27, 2015):

So far I only have Olivia's story, so I have to pick her. ;)

Re: Wedding Bells in Christmas (12:57pm May 27, 2015):

I love the "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue" wedding tradition.

Re: The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook (9:41pm March 31, 2015):

Apple pie, any cake and all the ice cream disappears. LOL

Re: Heartbreak Cove (12:11pm March 10, 2015):

I loved the blurb and the excerpt! I'm really looking forward to reading this book.

Re: At Wolf Ranch (10:03pm February 25, 2015):

I love that they are strong, protective and honorable.

Re: Forever in My Heart (10:58pm February 24, 2015):

I love former military men as heroes. This book sounds really good!

Re: Meet Me At The Beach (10:51pm February 24, 2015):

Well, I met my hubby at work on the midnight shift on a locked Psych unit. Usually there were only three of us working each night so we had to get along and work well together. We've been married for almost 24 years so I think we're doing okay. LOL

Re: Claimed by the Sheikh (7:21pm February 19, 2015):

Congrats on your book, Rachael! It sounds really good!

Re: Once a Wallflower, At Last His Love (8:28pm February 11, 2015):

I'm looking forward to reading this story, Christi!

I'm almost finished reading NO MATTER WHAT by Erin Nicholas and I adore the hero, Adam Steele. He's a single father of a teenage daughter who recently lost the lower half of one leg due to cancer. He sounds like you described yourself...he'll do anything for her. :-)

Re: More Than A Duke (8:34pm January 15, 2015):

They have to be smart, loyal and able to stand up for their beliefs. They can be flawed, both emotionally and/or physically, but they have to be capable of loving someone else more than themselves.

Re: Hard to Come By (9:42pm November 26, 2014):

Donna Alward wrote HER LONE COWBOY with a former military man who had lost his right arm.

RaeAnne Thayne wrote DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT that had a heroine who was former military and had lost a leg.

These were both good books, but I plan to start reading Marz tonight and I can't wait! I love your Hard Ink series, Laura!

Re: Play Me Wild (9:28pm November 26, 2014):

I read every day. I plan to start HARD TO COME BY by Laura Kaye tonight. I love her Hard Ink series.

Re: Two Week Seduction (12:11pm November 6, 2014):

I love the changing color of the leaves and the crisp smell in the air.

Re: A Rake By Any Other Name (12:08pm November 6, 2014):

My favorite rake is whichever one I'm reading at the time. There are too many great ones to choose just one. LOL

Re: Lady Elinor's Wicked Adventures (12:05pm November 6, 2014):

I love reading cookbooks! I'm lucky that my MIL does also and I'm giving her a reprinted historical cookbook for her December birthday this year.

I wish I knew what Devil's Tears were. My first thought was tiny tomatoes, but I can't recall when people stopped thinking that tomatoes were poisonous.

Re: What To Do With A Bad Boy (6:45pm November 4, 2014):

Jill Shalvis - Lucky Harbor and Animal Magnetism series
Susan Mallery - Fool's Gold series
Laura Kaye - Hard Ink series

Re: Bridging Two Hearts (10:04pm October 3, 2014):

I loved reading your post, Michelle! What a journey. I had to laugh at the first question you were always asked: Where did you get my number? LOL And now to be'followed' on twitter. :D

Re: Her Best Shot (9:57pm October 3, 2014):

I have to go with Daniel. I also love a good sense of humor. :D

Re: Reforming the Rock Star (12:12pm September 30, 2014):

I'd love to reinvent myself. LOL But at my age I don't think it would change anything. My hubby has stuck around for 23+ years with the me he has. ;)

But I loved your story, Christine. :)

Re: Always a Rogue, Forever Her Love (12:29pm September 19, 2014):

Sheesh. That would be THE and BOOK. :D

Re: Always a Rogue, Forever Her Love (12:28pm September 19, 2014):

I loved te excerpt and am looking forward to reading the boo!

Re: Driftwood Tides (10:09pm September 5, 2014):

Driftwood Tides sounds like a very good story!

Re: The Laird (10:06pm September 5, 2014):

I'd love to meet Michael Brodie.

Re: A Winter Wedding (10:02pm September 5, 2014):

I have a rather zany sense of humor which I love to use on unsuspecting friends. LOL

Re: Ain't She Sweet? (11:55pm August 15, 2014):

Wow, what a great post, Sarah! I don't know how I missed this book, but I'm going to get a copy ASAP. I think we all can relate to Sugar Beth.

Re: Across the Line (10:40pm August 15, 2014):

Hi Kate! I watched a couple of the prank videos. LOL

I've already read both of your books and loved the tie prank on Fishy! Poor thing. :D

Re: Accidentally Married on Purpose (12:57pm July 19, 2014):

I never had a crush on a movie star or a poster on the wall. I started reading romance as a preteen and focused on the characters.

Re: The Longest Night (11:47pm July 16, 2014):

I love snowbound stories and this one sounds great!

Re: In Bed with the Competition (4:30pm July 10, 2014):

I've never watched Suits. Must check it out. LOL And I'll take Jude Law. ;)

Re: The Return of the Rebel (4:23pm July 10, 2014):

A beach read has to have some humor in it for me.

Re: Firewall (4:21pm July 10, 2014):

I'm not a writer, but I like BRAINSTORM. ;)

Re: Crimson Heart (9:33pm June 28, 2014):

The book sounds great! I had to laugh about you checking out people in other cars and brainstorming their stories. LOL

Re: Once Upon A Kiss (10:38pm June 26, 2014):

I love the humor in this story!

Well, I fell off my chair once. LOL

Re: Mischief By Moonlight (10:34pm June 26, 2014):

Intelligence, honesty, loyalty and a sense of humor.

Re: Taming the Country Star (7:48pm June 21, 2014):

I loved this book and I hope you are planning a book featuring Kylie's limber yoga friend. LOL

Re: Somebody to Love (12:53pm June 18, 2014):

I always learn something new when I read historical romances.

Re: Once Upon a Highland Autumn (12:37pm June 18, 2014):

I like the sound of this book/series and I really love the covers!

Re: Playing the Game (7:39pm June 10, 2014):

I like how Jay is the go-between for the other two more dominant characters. He sounds fun.

Re: Their Unexpected Love (7:24pm June 7, 2014):

Susan Mallery's latest Fool's Gold book, BEFORE WE KISS, was really good and had many funny moments. You don't need to have read any of the other books in this series to fall right into this one either.

Re: Meet the Earl at Midnight (10:59pm May 22, 2014):

During our first year of marriage my hubby decided to attend a six month lineman school (learning how to climb power poles) about 300 miles north of where we lived. While he was up north I continued to work full time and every other weekend we'd meet halfway between us for about 36 hours. It wasn't easy or fun for me, but I knew it was something he really wanted to do.

Re: To Charm a Naughty Countess (10:45pm May 22, 2014):

"You own my heart."

I can't wait to read this book, Theresa!

Re: Always Emily (12:48pm May 14, 2014):

I have a friend that I consider the sister of my heart. I can always talk to her and know that she'll always have my best interests at heart. Even though we now live in different states, it seems like no time has passed when we talk.

Re: Risky Game (12:43pm May 14, 2014):

I really like sports romance. Some of the series I like are:
Love and Football - Julie Brannagh
Portland Storm - Catherine Gayle (hockey)
Men of the Show - Rhonda Shaw (baseball)
In the Zone - Kate Willoughby (hockey)
Fighting for Love - Gina Maxwell (MMA)

Re: Wild Ways (12:31pm May 14, 2014):

You're a new author to me, but I like the sounds of these books.

I recently read my first MC book and I was surprised how much I liked it. I think it's all the alpha males and their bond as 'brothers' that I like.

Re: Searching for Perfect (8:49pm April 30, 2014):

I love seeing characters pop up in other books in a series! Some of my favorites are:
Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis
Fool's Gold by Susan Mallery
Hard Ink by Laura Kaye
Thunder Point by Robyn Carr

Re: A Beautiful Distraction (12:56pm April 30, 2014):

This is a new author to me, but I love the sound of this book! I'm a sucker for a wounded warrior.

Re: Out of Control (12:52pm April 30, 2014):

If the setting works for the story than it works for me. I'm open to explore with the characters since I haven't traveled that much myself.

Re: A Broken Kind Of Beautiful (9:18pm April 25, 2014):

People with a genuinely good heart are beautiful. Those that go out of their way to help others with no thought of themselves.

Re: East of Ecstasy (7:45pm April 24, 2014):

Hi Laura. I'm looking forward to reading this series.

I love series because I connect with book characters and don't want their stories to end. It's almost like they're friends and I want to catch up with them as their life changes after their own book has ended.

Re: A Shot of Red (9:53pm April 23, 2014):

I've been to a cheese factory but would love to go again since I love cheese. LOL I'd also like to try glass blowing. I've only seen it done on TV and it looks like a lot of work, but fun.

Re: Wild About Her Wingman (9:46pm April 23, 2014):

Hi Robin! I loved Troy and Erin - since WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN already met my eReader!

Cake and ice cream, cheese and crackers, chips and dip, chicken and dumplings, bagels and cream cheese, a cat and a piece of string. :)

Re: Rustler's Heart (5:17pm April 22, 2014):

'Salt of the earth' to me is someone good, honest and loyal.

Re: The Ace (6:06pm April 12, 2014):

A grand slam homer with bases loaded.

Re: A Promise In Pieces (9:09pm April 4, 2014):

Your story was touching. I'm glad you nurtured that girl inside with the big voice. Congrats on your debut book!

Re: The Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off (9:16pm April 3, 2014):

The book sounds great, Carolyn, and I love Jalapeno Poppers.
I like this better than canned sauce because you have control of the salt content.
Enchilada Sauce
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon salt
Heat oil in a large skillet to medium heat. Whisk in flour and chili powder. Reduce heat to medium and continue to whisk until lightly browned. Gradually whisk in tomato sauce, chicken broth, cumin, garlic powder, onion salt and salt. Stir until smooth, and continue simmering over medium heat about 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Serve immediately, or keep in a covered bowl in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes 2.5 cups.

Re: How to Handle a Cowboy (9:10pm April 3, 2014):

I love series and/or connected stories and cowboys are an added bonus. I like seeing what previous characters are doing because in a good book they almost feel like friends and I'm invested in their lives. I like starting with the first book in a series, but also think each book should stand alone so the reader doesn't feel lost if they don't start with book #1.

Re: Dash of Peril (6:56pm April 2, 2014):

I'm so impressed that you're a pantster, Lori. That must make the writing process so exciting. LOL I can't wait to read this story and I love the cover.

Re: The Winter Bride (6:51pm April 2, 2014):

I like beta heroes, because I believe even they have a bit of alpha hidden in them when it comes to someone they love. I can't wait to read this book, Anne. The cover is gorgeous, too.

Re: Mad About You (7:10pm April 1, 2014):

I love friends to lovers stories. I recently read NO STRINGS ATTACHED by Nicolette Day and really enjoyed it.

I met my hubby at work and though we were friendly, we were more co-workers than friends at first.

Re: Dyed and Gone (7:05pm March 29, 2014):

Lots of interesting uses. I've used them to pit cherries. My grandmother had a fruit farm and taught me that trick.

Re: Moonlight on My Mind (6:05pm March 28, 2014):

I really enjoyed this discussion...and actually hearing Jennifer's voice. I love her books and can't wait to read Moonlight On My Mind. I'm also excited to hear she's got another book coming about an accidental wallflower! Yea!

Re: Sex and the Single Vamp (5:26pm March 27, 2014):

What an interesting take on history. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Turned (10:19pm March 26, 2014):

I loved the teaser and that this is the first book in a new series.

Re: Home to Stay (10:17pm March 26, 2014):

In Wizard of Oz when Scarecrow realizes he was smart all along and didn't need a diploma...and when Dorothy realized she'd always had the power to go back home.

Re: Her Summer with the Marine (5:42pm March 20, 2014):

I've read this book and loved it! I also love series and am so happy to see the other Donovan brothers will get their own books. I can't wait!

Re: Silence Of The Wolf (5:37pm March 20, 2014):

I want Guthrie under my Christmas tree. LOL Cold weather is always better with someone warm to snuggle with.

Re: Kissing with Fangs (5:32pm March 20, 2014):

I haven't read your books before, but I loved the excerpt and would love to read more.

Re: Turned (7:00pm March 19, 2014):

I would love to read more. The blurb and teaser are intriguing.

Re: The Bride Insists (1:51am March 15, 2014):

I haven't seen that movie, but I love the picture you posted above. And I love the sound of your new book!

Re: The Rancher's Second Chance (7:14pm March 12, 2014):

I love cowboy heroes because their muscles come from hard work and they're loyal and honorable. The jeans and chaps don't hurt either. ;)

Re: Some Like It Wild (12:23pm March 12, 2014):

Sounds like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: How Sweet The Sound (12:01pm March 8, 2014):

No signs of Spring here in Michigan, but I look forward to the daffodils and the bird songs.

Re: What The Groom Wants (11:31pm March 5, 2014):

What a fun and funny blog post! Thanks, I really needed the laugh today.

I've read several of your Kathy Lyons books, but now I must read you as Jade Lee. :)

Re: Mustang Sassy (3:31am March 5, 2014):

I don't have a special song, but I do love the new one called "Happy"...or maybe it's "Because I'm Happy." It's very upbeat and catchy. :)

Re: Searching for Beautiful (3:21am March 5, 2014):

'Beautiful' is someone with a big heart and who takes into account how others feel.

Re: Safe in the Tycoon's Arms (3:17am March 5, 2014):

The last big thing was when I finally bought an e-reader. LOL Now I don't know what I had against them.

Re: The Chance (7:33pm February 27, 2014):

I can't wait to read THE CHANCE. I loved the previous books in this series!

Re: Must Love Dukes (7:31pm February 27, 2014):

It has to be when I encountered a not very well-liked boss sitting at the next table at a restaurant. And he didn't have a clue he wasn't well-liked. *sigh*

Re: Hot Rock (9:56pm February 25, 2014):

I think it's because they sing to us and their lyrics touch us in some way. It's very appealing to feel that someone understands us.

Re: The Temptation of Laura (9:51pm February 25, 2014):

I've never been to Bath but I love reading about it. This story sounds so interesting and unlike other books I've read.

Re: The Trouble With Honor (9:49pm February 25, 2014):

I love this excerpt. Honor is one smart cookie. George Easton better stop underestimating her. LOL

Re: Between the Sheets (12:04pm February 25, 2014):

Congrats on the new book! I checked into it and it sounds fabulous!

Re: Bound to be Dirty (10:06pm February 22, 2014):

I haven't read 50 Shades, but have read other books in this category. You're a new-to-me author, Susan, and this book/series sounds like a fun and interesting concept. I'm going to check out the other books in this series on your website.

Re: Full Measures (10:00pm February 22, 2014):

I have great respect for military people and their families. I'd love to read this book and will be putting it on my wish list.

Re: Mint Juleps and Justice (9:56pm February 22, 2014):

{{{Nancy}}} My thoughts are with you and your family.

In real life I prefer beta, but in books I'll take an alpha who reveals his beta bits only to me.

Re: The Cowboy's Mail Order Bride (6:31pm February 20, 2014):

I love mail order bride stories and I'm tickled to find out you were one, Carolyn. LOL I loved the excerpt and the book is already on my wish list.

Re: The Tycoon's Socialite Bride (6:10pm February 19, 2014):

I like more realistic romances, but romance books are to get away from the real world and escape in the fantasy of the story.

Re: Lord of the Sea (6:08pm February 19, 2014):

No hero is perfect, but they can learn from their flaws and become a better person in the end.

Re: Once In A Lifetime (5:40pm February 19, 2014):

Such a touching scene...sigh worthy. But then again, I adore Jill's writing!

Re: Lord of Swords (7:52pm February 17, 2014):

Thanks for the giveaway. This book sounds perfect for me. I love medieval Knights.

Re: Much Ado About Jack (11:12pm February 13, 2014):

I think the Regency would have inspired Shakespeare to write a whole slew of new stories!

Re: What The Groom Wants (11:08pm February 13, 2014):

I was hoping it was B because that sounds like family fun. LOL But D works, too.

Re: Deep in My Heart (9:01pm February 12, 2014):

That was a great interview, Patricia. I loved that it was given as if by your characters. And I had to laugh when they thought a May/December romance meant the months of the year instead of one with people of diverse ages. LOL

Re: What The Groom Wants (9:06pm February 7, 2014):

Skype sex? In that version the internet provider is in control. LOL

Re: The MacGregor's Lady (9:00pm February 7, 2014):

I love a good Scottish burr, too, and I adore a kilted man. *sigh*

Do you plan more than three books for this series, Grace? If so, how many more.

Re: Breakaway Hearts (5:50pm February 5, 2014):

I love watching the Olympic Games. I love the figure skating, ski jumping and the bobsled racing. My favorite movie is Ice Castles. The song "Through The Eyes of Love" from that movie was sung at my wedding.

Re: A Perfect Distraction (5:46pm February 5, 2014):

I'll be lucky if my hubby evens remembers Valentine's Day. But he usually gets some candy for 50% off the next day. LOL My favorite flowers are daffodils and jonquils.

Re: Risk Taker (10:15pm February 2, 2014):

I can't wait to read Ethan's and Sarah's books!

Re: The Wedding Game (11:43pm January 31, 2014):

I like weddings and reality TV, so your book sounds like something I'd love. Thanks for the chance to win a copy. :)

Re: Control (11:10pm January 30, 2014):

Sounds great. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Love in the Library (10:14pm January 29, 2014):

I like both alphas and betas in books, but in real life I'm very happy with my nerdy beta. ;)

I love your Brides of Bath series, Cheryl.

Re: Wishing On Buttercups (7:16pm January 24, 2014):

There are things in my family that I fear I'll be judged on if they were well known, even though I had nothing to do with it. I try to live for the present.

Re: Love Songs for the Road (5:16pm January 21, 2014):

Congrats on your first book! I used to work on a locked Psych unit and we never used our last names for safety. I'm careful what/where I post things because of that experience.

Re: More Than A Touch (8:43pm January 17, 2014):

It has to be the connection of the characters that makes me care for them. They become *real* to me and almost like family by the end of the book. That's why I like series. More time with the characters.

Re: Sadie's Secret (8:37pm January 17, 2014):

I never knew Pinkerton agents could be women. How fascinating! I always learn new things when I read historical books.

Re: Between A Rake And A Hard Place (5:20pm January 16, 2014):

House parties at a country estate...because the characters are forced to spend time with each other and there is time for a lot to happen. LOL

Re: One Rogue Too Many (5:01pm January 16, 2014):

I met my first crush at summer camp. *sigh* How could I forget that. LOL

Re: Now or Never (4:44pm January 16, 2014):

It's never too late for love. I love to read about older heroines.

Re: The Magic Between Us (4:24pm January 9, 2014):

I loved the story about your son and your book sounds wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Compromising Willa (11:27pm January 8, 2014):

I really like the sound of this book. I like a stubborn and feisty heroine.

Re: The Groom's Gamble (3:10pm January 5, 2014):

I'd have to vote for The Groom's Gamble. There's just more Harvey to love on that cover. And I love kilted men so this book is for me. ;)

Re: Paws For Murder (2:52pm January 2, 2014):

I love animals in stories and I love the cover. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Re: The Scandal in Kissing an Heir (6:35pm December 31, 2013):

I loved the excerpt and now can't wait to read the book!

Re: The Bad Boy Billionaire's Wicked Arrangement (6:01pm December 31, 2013):

Oh my, I loved that excerpt! I'd love to meet a bad boy billionaire on a cruise ship. That way he's trapped unless he's an exceptionally good swimmer. LOL

Re: If Wishes Were Earls (6:38pm December 30, 2013):

I love this series and am really looking forward to reading this book. It'll be a good way to welcome in 2014!

Re: Needing Her (5:02pm December 24, 2013):

During HS when a friend was driving I would reach over and honk the horn when passing a cute guy. I'd duck down in the passenger seat and she'd be left looking at the guy as he looked to see who honked. LOL It worked many times.

Re: A Perfect Distraction (3:12pm December 23, 2013):

My list has many from your list. LOL

White Christmas
The Family Stone
The Holiday
While You Were Sleeping
It's a Wonderful Life

Re: Welcome Back To Apple Grove (3:39pm December 20, 2013):

That's Peanut BUTTER Blossoms (above), not bitter. LOL

Re: Welcome Back To Apple Grove (3:37pm December 20, 2013):

We always make Peanut Bitter Blossoms (your PB Kiss cookies) and Pecan Tassies - basically little pecan pies made in the mini muffin tins.

Re: Take Over at Midnight (3:18pm December 20, 2013):

You're a new author to me, but I loved the excerpts from this book and I'll be sure to check into it.

Re: Bite Me, Your Grace (7:15pm December 17, 2013):

I enjoyed reading about your path to being pubbed. I love the title and plan to look further into this intriguing book.

Re: Fighting Love (11:20pm December 16, 2013):

I've never been on a friend shelf. Except my hubby is also my friend and that's a good thing.

Re: Thrown (11:14pm December 16, 2013):

I really like the sound of this book. I'll be sure to check into it. Thanks for the contest.

Re: Gentlemen Prefer Mischief (5:24pm December 13, 2013):

I love it when the characters in the book are interviewed. LOL

The book sounds great. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Last Chance Proposal (12:06pm December 11, 2013):

I've never had an upside down Christmas. LOL And in our family we couldn't do without our stockings.

Re: Tangling with the CEO (12:04pm December 11, 2013):

Both - If the story is good I'll read it.

Re: Undressing Mr. Darcy (4:42pm December 9, 2013):

Your book sounds like such fun! I'd definitely go to an undressing Mr. Darcy party. LOL

Re: The Best Game (6:22pm December 8, 2013):

Thank you for the post. Without emotions love scenes are just mechanical movements. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book.

Re: Legend Of The Highland Dragon (12:19pm December 6, 2013):

I've never been a secretary, but I can just imagine Mina's shock when Stephen transformed in front of her. LOL

Re: Stranded (12:15pm December 6, 2013):

Dani is a new-to-me author, but this series sounds interesting. I also like the tips given.

Re: Tempest's Course (12:12pm December 6, 2013):

I like quilts and gothic romances, so your book sounds great! Is the title, TEMPEST'S COURSE, the name of the quilt pattern on the cover?

Re: Hustlin' Texas (6:00pm December 4, 2013):

I really enjoyed the excerpt. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of this book.

Re: Rugged Hearts (5:58pm December 4, 2013):

My family means the most to me. My health hasn't been the best this year, but my family is there to help me when I need it.

Re: Billionaire Blend (7:04pm December 3, 2013):

I love a book that includes bonus recipes.

Re: Down Range (10:01pm December 1, 2013):

Re: Three Timeless Loves (8:09pm November 29, 2013):

I love Medieval romances so I'd like to go back to Scotland in that time. The book version since I'm too fond of soap to want the real time. LOL

Re: A Change of Heart (3:20pm November 28, 2013):

I'm not a writer, but I can appreciate your journey. I like military based stories and it's good to see one with the heroine being the one in service.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Re: Hard As It Gets (4:07pm November 25, 2013):

I love Jill Shalvis's Animal Magnitism series because it's loaded with quirky animals.

Kristan Higgins' book, Just One of the Guys, also has a dog that just cracked me up. It was in heat and the hero put underwear on her before she escaped to run rampant down the main street of the town. LOL Many of her books contain animals.

Re: Home for Christmas (4:01pm November 25, 2013):

We really don't do a lot of decorating, but I love to see houses with Christmas lights glowing, especially through falling snow.

Re: Aloha Rose (3:58pm November 25, 2013):

I love quilts and the stories behind the patterns. This book sounds really good.

Re: Reign (7:45pm November 24, 2013):

I've had squid ink pasta, but never soup. I'd have to try a bit of it. I like trying unusual cuisines. We're having Turducken for Thanksgiving. ;)

Re: The Wedding Game (7:41pm November 24, 2013):

I'm not sure. I'd have to ask my hubby first. LOL

Re: A Song At Twilight (7:55pm November 18, 2013):

I love the sound of this book!

I recently read a book (The Marquess of Cake) where the h worked in her family's bakery and a Marquess so loved sweets he bought the store. He also had other business ventures though some looked down on him for it.

Re: Once A Seal (8:50pm November 15, 2013):

The book sounds great! I can't wait to read it.

Re: Texas Tango (10:30pm November 14, 2013):

I love the sound of this book series and am looking forward to reading it.

Re: Shenandoah Crossings (7:19pm November 14, 2013):

I love medieval stories and would love to time travel back to that period, but only in a book. I like bathing and smelling good too much to actually want to live there. LOL

This book sounds fabulous!

Re: Bulletproof (5:25pm November 13, 2013):

I like their strength, their protectiveness, their honor...and their muscles. ;)

Re: Have You Any Rogues? (5:22pm November 13, 2013):

Wow, what an excerpt! I can't wait to read this novella.

Re: Bikers and Pearls (10:57pm November 11, 2013):

I grew up in a family filled with teachers, so there were always a lot of books around. Reading, romances in particular, is my favorite passion.

Re: The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh (10:53pm November 11, 2013):

The book (and the post) sound like such fun, Ella!

Re: A Cadence Creek Christmas (9:51pm November 9, 2013):

I love the Cadence Creek stories. I haven't gotten on Pinterest for the same reason you tried to stay away. I'd find myself spending way too much time there...for no good reason. LOL

Re: How To Handle A Highlander (9:28pm November 9, 2013):

I love Highlanders. Men in kilts. Yum.

Re: Born Wild (2:59pm November 1, 2013):

This book sounds good. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: A Midsummer Bride (2:53pm November 1, 2013):

I like heroines to be smart, kind hearted and have a sense of humor.

Re: Once a Rake (10:59pm October 30, 2013):

I like the fashion and all the rules the characters have to follow...or try to get around. LOL

Re: Because Of Audrey (6:49pm October 25, 2013):

I love the sound of Audrey's style and Gray's reaction. :D

The funniest costume I've ever worm was a duck: home-made and complete with a yellow feather duster tail.

Re: The Wicked Wallflower (3:29pm October 24, 2013):

Yes, I have, because I was so shy and would have *died* if the boy had known. LOL

Re: Cinderella Screwed Me Over (9:36pm October 23, 2013):

I like Beauty and the Beast, but maybe with Beauty being the beastly one? LOL

Re: Christmas Quilt (5:04pm October 22, 2013):

I love to quilt...and there's nothing like the way a baby smells.

Re: Behind the Shattered Glass (12:31pm October 17, 2013):'s between trapped in marriage or laying fires at 5am. I'm just glad I really don't have to make such a difficult decision.

Re: Bare Knuckle (12:29pm October 17, 2013):

I love series!

Re: Run The Risk (12:27pm October 17, 2013):

I'd love to win a copy of this book!

Re: Her Accidental Boyfriend (6:12pm October 14, 2013):

I loved your story, Robin. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for something accidentally wonderful to happen to me. *fingers crossed*

Re: Lord of Swords (5:58pm October 12, 2013):

I love the picture with the kneeling knight above. I love a beautiful book cover and step-back print. I really wish e-books would also include step-backs as sometimes those are even prettier than the cover. Looking forward to reading your books!

Re: Paige Rewritten (1:00am October 9, 2013):

I love Christmas and since I'm in Michigan it's rare when we don't have snow. The book sounds good.

Re: Secrets Of A Scandalous Marriage (9:36pm October 8, 2013):

This was a great post. I loved finding out how you had to come up with a trilogy overnight. LOL You did good, Valerie!

Re: One Night in the Spa (2:36pm October 7, 2013):

Go Kathy, go!

Re: Newton Neighbors (5:42pm October 5, 2013):

Is there anything other than chaos? LOL I've never seen it.

Re: Kisses On Her Christmas List (6:17pm October 3, 2013):

I love Christmas stories and look forward to reading them every year.

Re: Dirty Trick (5:10pm September 25, 2013):

Apples, cider and soup - any kind of soup. LOL

Re: How To Entice An Enchantress (5:11pm September 20, 2013):

The Library. LOL

Re: To Wed A Wicked Highlander (5:07pm September 20, 2013):

I dread the coming ice and snow.

Re: The Surprising Enchantress (5:34pm September 16, 2013):

I've never seen a Broadway play. That would be so special. The books sound fabulous!

Re: Tempted in the Tropics (5:29pm September 16, 2013):

Cheesecake. Yum.

Re: Everlast (5:25pm September 16, 2013):

I love Fairy Tales and this sounds like an interesting adaptation.

Re: It Takes Two To Tangle (12:41pm September 13, 2013):

I was always called Marcy as a shortened version of my name, Marcelyn. But sometimes other kids would call me Moosey or Mousey. My online friends call me Marshy (shortened from Marshmallow, or Marshy-mallow because I'm so sweet. *gg*) and I use a flaming marshmallow as my FB picture. LOL My hubby will sometimes call me Snookums. :D

Re: Traces Of Mercy (7:07pm September 11, 2013):

This book really sounds intriguing. I like the amnesia plot. And your son's wedding sounds so special!

Re: Shades Of Mercy (7:05pm September 11, 2013):

Shades of Mercy sounds great. I love historical books and the things I can learn from them.

Re: Command Performance (7:35pm September 10, 2013):

Congrats on your debut book! It sounds great. You can't go wrong with a military hero if you ask me. ;)

Re: Bad Nights (7:25pm September 8, 2013):

This sounds like a really intriguing book!

Re: Against The Ropes (7:24pm September 8, 2013):

I love humor in books. I figure, if you can't laugh at things it's a sad life you're living.

Re: The Good Wife (2:25pm September 3, 2013):

It sounds great. I like that the couple are married and are working through their issues together.

Re: Never Say No to a Caffarelli (2:22pm September 3, 2013):

My mother's 3-layer carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. So good!

Re: The Highlander's Desire (2:56pm September 2, 2013):

THE UGLY DUCHESS by Eloisa James.

I also love the beauty and the beast trope.

Re: Love Him or Leave Him (7:03pm August 30, 2013):

I never read the Sweet Valley High books. I started out reading older Harlequin Presents books that I got from my Grandmother. LOL

Re: What the Bride Wore (6:59pm August 30, 2013):

The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers.

Re: The Arrangement (10:41pm August 24, 2013):

I love characters that are wounded emotionally and/or physically. It just gives such depth to their stories and makes me admire them even more. I loved Sydnam from Simply Love and The Survivors Club series sounds fantastic!

Re: Cowboy Seeks Bride (3:21pm August 23, 2013):

I don't like when series come to an end as I do feel like the characters are almost friends/family by then. I'm all for spin-off books with related characters though. I like the reality TV premise in this story, too.

Re: Wicked Beat (3:10pm August 23, 2013):

A sense of humor is a must and Eric sounds like a keeper! LOL

Re: Surrender To Sultry (3:05pm August 23, 2013):

I loved the excerpt. Now I want to know more! :)

Re: Three Days on Mimosa Lane (6:52pm August 15, 2013):

When my two boys were young I ended up in the hospital and I had friends step in to help out with them so my hubby wasn't more overwhelmed than he already was.

Re: Once Upon A Tartan (6:49pm August 15, 2013):

I've never thought about writing a book. I'm much happier reading them!

Re: Love On A Midsummer Night (7:01pm August 9, 2013):

This books sounds fun. I love historical romances.

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (6:16pm August 5, 2013):

Good luck with the weight loss, Susan. I've been sick lately and have accidently lost weight. I need to lose more but have little motivation until I feel better. :)

Re: What the Bride Wore (6:13pm August 5, 2013):

Waving at you as you pass under Michigan!

Re: Second Ride Cowboy (6:16pm July 29, 2013):

As long as both people want to work out their differences I believe it's possible to find love again.

Re: Rugged Hearts (8:07pm July 26, 2013):

I always looked up to my mother and she was always supportive of me. I still miss her after losing her 23 years ago.

Re: The Officer And The Secret (12:52pm July 20, 2013):

Just making time for the little things you can share together. Send something silly that reminds you of him, regular calls and emails and face time when available.

Re: Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe (12:49pm July 20, 2013):

I like a book that also has recipes in it. Sounds like a fun read.

Re: Rancher to the Rescue (4:22pm July 17, 2013):

My hubby won't go to the store wearing shorts, even if it's 100 degrees out. He always changes into jeans or pants. He doesn't feel it's proper...and he's 6'10" and has gorgeous long legs! LOL

Re: Merger to Marriage (4:13pm July 13, 2013):

I don't mind a tried and true set up since each author handles it differently.

While I love the chocolate factory episode, my favorite one if where Ricky is singing a requested song at Club Babaloo for someone who wants to tell her hubby they're having a baby. It still gets me when he finds Lucy in the audience and realizes that he's the one about to be a father.

Re: If The Shoe Fits (3:17pm July 13, 2013):

I can't think of any right off my head, but your book sounds great.

Re: The Rogue Steals A Bride (3:15pm July 13, 2013):

I love Historical romances and this series sounds great.

Re: Pieces Of The Heart (3:13pm July 13, 2013):

I love the quilt on the cover. So pretty!

Re: Paradise Valley (6:57pm July 7, 2013):

The cover is just gorgeous!

Re: It Happened One Midnight (6:56pm July 7, 2013):

It will happen again. ;-)

Re: Wish You Were Here (5:24pm June 28, 2013):

When I was a preteen I came upon my grandmother's box of romances one summer while visiting. That's what hooked me. LOL

Re: Smoking Hot (5:22pm June 28, 2013):

Totally angelic thoughts. *adjusts tarnished and slightly crooked halo*

Re: All Out of Love (8:15pm June 26, 2013):

That was fun! I had 3 for Jill Shalvis and than 2 for Lori Wilde!

Re: The Look of Love (6:46pm June 26, 2013):

I'd love to read the Sullivan series!

Re: The Lady Mercy Danforthe Flirts With Scandal (6:46pm June 26, 2013):

You're a new-to-me author, but the book sounds great. Thanks for the excerpt.

Re: Billion Dollar Cowboy (4:41pm June 15, 2013):

Carolyn did the right thing, but I'm sure those eyes had a bit to do with it. LOL Who can resist a cowboy?

Re: One Day in Apple Grove (4:37pm June 15, 2013):

I've never attended a reader's event, but the huge book signings held at the RWA conferences sound like so much fun!

Re: Summer at Mustang Ridge (6:55pm June 12, 2013):

My mother in law passed down the family's 'secret' recipe for white fruitcake. And it really is good! Totally different than the molasses based dark ones. It's fought over at my house.

Re: The Fireman's Homecoming (6:40pm June 12, 2013):

Obviously I love to read. LOL But I also enjoy counted cross stitch and quilting.

Re: Flirting with Disaster (5:13pm June 12, 2013):

A hero without flaws would not seem real to me. A fatal flaw would be if he were verbally or physically abusive to others. That would be really hard for me to overcome and give the guy a chance to win me over.

Re: Lady Vivian Defies A Duke (5:33pm May 24, 2013):

This book (and series) sounds like so much fun!

I love series and having characters pop up. Some of my favorites are the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis and the Highland Pleasure (Mackenzie) series by Jennifer Ashley.

Re: When The Morning Glory Blooms (4:58pm May 22, 2013):

It is sad to lose friends due to moving/distance. The book sounds good.

Re: Kissing the Maid of Honor (4:50pm May 22, 2013):

Any muscular military man will do just fine. And my hubby. LOL

Re: The Sword Dancer (4:47pm May 22, 2013):

I like Beauty and the Beast and friends to lovers.

Re: The Summer He Came Home (3:23pm April 18, 2013):

The first concert I ever went to was Chicago. My brother surprised me with tickets.

Re: Darius (6:46pm April 4, 2013):

I make a mental list of possible solutions and then try to think them through and come up with the one that feels the best for me. It's not always the easy one, either. *sigh*

Re: Secrets of a Runaway Bride (5:25pm April 2, 2013):

I like Sarah MacLean's "Rule of Scoundrels" titles (A Rogue by Any Other Name & One Good Earl Deserves a Lover). They just make me smile.

Re: Once Tempted (5:47pm April 1, 2013):

My father was a teacher, so every summer he'd load up my mom, the tent and all five kids for a massive 'educational' road trip. Usually it included some conference for him to attend while we were left at the campground. HE got to go to Disneyland...none of us kids did. I also got the mumps during that California trip and had to be snuck into the rest stops on the way home. No fun for us at all.

Re: Identity Crisis (5:00pm March 28, 2013):

What a fascinating post. I never knew that many forgeries were in museums, and I was floored to hear that Picasso even signed 'good' forgeries.

Re: A Shot Of Sultry (4:57pm March 28, 2013):

My hubby isn't romantic, but once the night feedings were over with our two boys, he took over getting up at night if the boys ever called out. I was with them during the daytime and also worked in the evenings, so he gave me the gift of sleep.

Re: Sins of a Ruthless Rogue (3:58pm March 26, 2013):

That was an exciting introduction to Russia, Anna. LOL The book sounds great.

Re: A Risk Worth Taking (6:59pm March 10, 2013):

I like a little of both. I read to escape, but I have to be able to relate to the heroine.

Re: The Marriage Bargain (6:44pm March 6, 2013):

It's always about the story. I read category and mainstream romances. If a story is well written I don't care how it's packaged.

Re: The Turncoat (6:40pm March 6, 2013):

I haven't read a book that I can recall with people on both sides of an active war, but this one sure sounds interesting.

Re: The Mistress Memoirs (5:40pm February 20, 2013):

Sir Colin sounds like fun. And the cover is gorgeous!

Re: Treacherous Temptations (10:15pm February 9, 2013):

The book sounds wonderful!

Re: Love Thy Sister (6:23pm December 12, 2012):

Thanks for sharing your story...and stories with us!

Re: Holiday Buzz (2:34pm December 11, 2012):

The book and recipes sound great!

Re: Contract For Marriage (3:02pm October 4, 2012):

I can confront quite well when the need arises. LOL

Re: Charming Blue (6:56pm September 21, 2012):

I love books based on fairy tales!

Re: Where There's A Will (6:55pm September 21, 2012):

I like a physically/emotionally damaged hero who doesn't feel that he's good enough for the heroine.

Re: A Fatal Fleece (4:09pm June 11, 2012):

I love series and A FATAL FLEECE sounds good! Thanks for the contest.

Re: Against The Night (4:02pm March 9, 2012):


Re: Always a Temptress (1:37pm November 3, 2011):

I love series! The characters become like family. One of my favorites is Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series.
