Re: By Hook or By Crook (4:55pm April 27, 2013):

My husband is difficult, because he's annoying. Of course, he would say I
was the difficult one!

Re: The Big Beach Book (3:31pm August 23, 2012):

Summer only lasts so long in WI and a trip to Lake Michigan is always fun.
We "collect" mullets. The person that finds the best mullet wins a drink
(soda for kids and beer for adults, it is WI after all). I one once with a waist
length mullet wearing a speedo!

Re: The Last Victim (6:45pm August 5, 2012):

I think if you write a book that you love then other people
will love it as well. If they don't, so what.

Re: Married By Midnight (8:55am August 3, 2012):

No I don't wait for a series to end. Why? If I like an
author, I'll often follow them from series to series. If one
abruptly stops, I get really sad, but I just wait to see what
happens next.

Re: The Secret Mistress (10:39am July 31, 2012):

Beta males can be fun. They don't think like the bad boys but
offer realism. I like that. I actually read a book where the
female was the "alpha hero" and the male taking the
traditional female role. It was fun. I liked reading about
him standing behind the female for protection.

Re: Her Highness, The Traitor (4:44pm June 1, 2012):

I would love to win this book. I love your books and I'm sure
I'll love this one too.

Re: One Month To Become A Mum (6:26pm April 19, 2012):

I have never read a medical romance, but I would love to try

Re: The Zen Man (6:23pm April 18, 2012):

Magnum PI, of course. He was freakin' hot!

Re: The Wolf Who Loved Me (9:55am April 12, 2012):

There is no such thing as keeping secrets in my family! No a
single one of us can keep a secret. My mother is the oldest
of 13 children and I am the oldest 50 grandchildren (and a few
great-grandchldren) and not a single person in my family can
"hold water". It makes for some fun family gatherings though.

Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (6:06pm March 17, 2012):

Nice to know I wasn't the only that first thought about seal

Re: Neil's Fire (6:04pm March 17, 2012):

I hate that question too. Be specific! I'm a lot of stuff.
Short, I have a head shaped like a peanut, crabs give me the
creeps and Jack Russell dogs hate me and all sorts of other
stuff. Pick a topic and I'm all over it. But DO NOT ask me
that general question and expect an answer that makes sense.

Re: The Lord Of Illusion (7:19pm February 3, 2012):

I would love to have fire magic. The ability to soothe a
mental hurt would be very useful today.

Re: Pretty Persuasion (12:16pm January 9, 2012):

I do rate books. I find that when I read reviews of a book
I like to see what others rate the book. I don't always
follow their reviews, but I like a general idea of what
others think. So, I feel that if ratings help me decide to
read a book, my ratings might help someone else.

Now, there are very few books that I don't finish. Even, if
I find myself not liking a book sometimes gets better toward
the middle of the book.

Re: The More the Terrier (9:56am December 31, 2011):

My plans? 1. Force my 18 year old to learn how to drive.
2. Convince my 16 year old that she can't work a job and handle 4 AP classes. 3. Actually finish one of my remodeling jobs. 4. Learn how to make a quilt using my regular sewing machine. And, 5. call my father more.

Re: Flawless (10:32am October 20, 2011):

Yes bad boys can be redeemed. Is there a line that shouldn't
be crossed? I don't know. I've read romance stories where
the hero is mean and abusive, and didn't deserve redemption.
They were redeemed and earned the heroine's love. Those
stories stretch the envelope, but leave a lasting
impression. A good story is a good story. I say, do be
afraid to push the boundaries, just be prepared for the

Re: Wilder (4:52pm October 7, 2011):

I have never read a book about a Professional Hunter. That
sounds really cool.

Re: The Goblin King (8:45am October 6, 2011):

I tend to be inspired by real people doing real life things.
A tired mother pushing herself to finish shopping (if she
can do it, so can i); A brave father shoe shopping with his
16 year old daughter (that's what I call love); or even my
7 year old niece trying to convince me why she needs $1000
for her birthday (that was just funny).

Re: The Norse King's Daughter (9:38am September 30, 2011):

I've had that problem too many times. When my TBR pile
doesn't inspire me, I turn to the internet. I ask if anyone
has any books to recommend, I discovered a new author that
way. Also, I follow a lot of authors (including you) on
facebook and email and that's a great way to see what my fav
authors are offering.

Re: The Seduction of Sophie Seacrest (8:39pm September 26, 2011):

My brooding hero is more contemporary. Buffy the Vampire Slayers,
Angel. Nobody could brood like Angel!

Re: The Dragon And The Pearl (10:39am September 14, 2011):

Costuming is part of the development of the character. Clothes give a visual to an internal emotion or thought.

Re: Kindling The Moon (2:05pm September 10, 2011):

Not really urban fantasy. But, my favorite thing ever, was in Dean Koontz's Seize the Night. Instead of a human that seemed to know everything, we got a genius dog. Gotta love that.

Re: The Bone House (5:36pm August 22, 2011):

There is absolutely nothing better than a psychological

Re: Haunting Desire (12:30pm April 6, 2011):

My favorite legend is that of Boadecia. I love stories about
warrior women, especially if they are based on truth.

Re: Love Me If You Dare (3:34pm February 14, 2011):

Valentine's day is about the all of your loved ones. I
celebrate Valentine's Day with my family. I get my girls a
heart shaped pizza and a box of chocolates. My husband
celebrate this as a family holliday.

Re: Immortal Champion (4:34pm January 27, 2011):

I'm a stay-at-home mom with a husband that works at home and
two teenage daughters. I need something to drown out the
constant chatter.

Re: Deadly Heat (9:10am January 22, 2011):

I like romance with twists, turns and the unexpected. I don't
want the read a recipe, I want some that makes me think. Even
if all I'm thinking is, "Wow".

Re: Dreams' Dark Kiss (2:45pm January 18, 2011):

My muses are my teenage daughters they get into the strangest
situations. It really takes serious imagination to help them
through it. My imagination wasn't that great until my girls
reached their teenage years.

Re: Real Vampires Have More To Love (7:51am January 4, 2011):

I wouldn't mind tying myself to a man for all eternity if he
was the right one. Forever is a long time to play the field,
there could be a hundred years between boyfriends. No thank
you. One is enough.

Re: Backstage Pass (1:37pm October 13, 2010):

Yes, I have a herd. It's the
kids I keep collecting. I don'
know where they come from but
they keep inviting themselves
for dinner.

Re: Sazerac Seduction (10:06pm October 10, 2010):

My dream man is tall, with color
changing eyes and completely
annoying. Oh wait, that's my

Re: Royal Blood (5:10pm September 3, 2010):

You are right, the last thing I
want is to read a book about is
carpooling. What I do like to
read is laugh and scream at the
same time!

Re: Hero (4:30pm August 16, 2010):

When I read a review, I like to know
if the reviewer has read other books
by this author. Some reviews givr
too much informstion and a review
by a reader or a hater can turn me
away from a good book. I just read
what I want to read.

Re: Rule's Bride (4:12pm August 16, 2010):

I love series books. Sometimes I fall
in love with a back character and
want to hear their story. However it
is important for the story to be a
stand alone, because sometimes I
enter a story with a book in the
middle of the story.

Re: Tomb With A View (9:30am July 19, 2010):

As a child, I never liked
ghost stories, 'cause I did
have monsters that went bump
in the night. As an adult,
reading ghost stories helped
clear the darkness. So yes, I
do love a good ghost story.

Re: Dead in the Family (7:47am May 30, 2010):

I'll be reading:

Laurell K Hamilton: Bullet
Jacqueline Frank: Naamah's Kiss
and Naamah's Curse

Re: Blown Away (7:38am May 30, 2010):

I read the books when they are
released. Once I have all of
the books in the trilogy I
reread them all at once so I
can pick up any nuances that I
may have missed the first

Re: Silent Truth (9:27am May 15, 2010):

I can't make this years
conference, so I'll read several
books and drink lots of
Margaritas so I can participate
from afar.

Re: Haunting Warrior (10:40am May 12, 2010):

I don't want to go forward or
backward in time. Now is hard

Re: Some Like It Rough (9:46am May 10, 2010):

I read to experience things
that I wouldn't otherwise be
able to experience in my own
life. I would never have the
opportunity to join the mile
high club; airplanes scare
the living heck out of me. In
magazines I read the book
snippets to find new authors.

Re: Touching Darkness (9:27am May 5, 2010):

I'm a homemaker. The best part
is taking care of my family.
The not so best part is my
family needs a lot of taking
care off.

Re: Think Twice (10:01am May 2, 2010):

Last week I finished reading
Sliver Born by Patricia Briggs,
and Bengal's Mate and Lion's
Heat by Lora Leigh. They were
all fantastic.

Re: Silent Truth (3:33pm April 19, 2010):

My newest passion is quilting.
I taught myself to sew during
my Martha Stewart phase and
have loved it. But sewing
always made me want to swear!
With quilting I can learn and
try new techniques. Best of
all, no swearing involved.

Re: On Shadow Beach (10:47am April 6, 2010):

I don't have a fav type of
cover; but I do look to covers
to give me a 10 sec clue as to
what's inside the book.

Re: The Stolen Crown (6:35pm March 15, 2010):

I love historical novels. Particularly ones based on actual historical figures.

Re: The Marriage Ring (9:09am March 11, 2010):

I haven't worn my wedding ring in years. Mostly because of problems with my hands, but my husband comments on it all the time. Although, I think his comments have more to do with the cost of the ring than a sign of possession.

Re: Lake Magic (4:57pm March 1, 2010):

A lesson I teach my daughters
is to follow your dreams,
wherever they take you, even
if it feels like you are off
track. The road to dreams is
not a straight line.

Re: Naked Edge (6:55am March 1, 2010):

My husband and I have almost
nothing in common. We've been
married for 15 years. I don't
know if opposites attract but it
does make life more interesting.

Re: The Mane Squeeze (9:59am February 28, 2010):

I'm an at home mom, so my reading is usually the books my daughters get assigned for English class. I read their books with them, so I can help with homework and have intelligent answers. For fun, I read anything and everything. I love historical non-fiction; I love paranormal romance; sci-fi and young adult. I was pretty excited to introduce the twilight series to my daughters long before anyone cared about sparkly vampires.

Re: Cowboy Trouble (10:25am February 25, 2010):

I think the one genre missing is
an Alpha Heroine that solves
pursuing the Hero and solving
the puzzle.

Re: Cowboy Trouble (10:23am February 25, 2010):

Re: The Betrayal Of The Blood Lily (4:48pm February 22, 2010):

In Wisconsin, it's cold a lot. So I always have a book on hand. Books can take you anywhere.

Re: Legend Of The White Wolf (12:36pm February 3, 2010):

Werewolves who as humans are sexy, loyal, and protective, and as wolves, regal, loyal and protective. A human with those qualities is my ideal man. Make him a werewolf, well that just adds spice.

Re: Drive Time (9:38am February 2, 2010):

There shouldn't be secrets
between couples. But there are,
because some secrets will cause
more pain than necessary. Tell
when appropriate.

Re: Getting Lucky (7:07am January 17, 2010):

I love books that are a part of a series. In single books I often wonder what happens to certain characters after the book is finished. A series lets those character's stories be told.

Re: The Keepers Of Sulbreth (6:03pm January 13, 2010):

I have found many great books, based on the title alone. Character names are important; when the names don't fit, the story doesn't flow right.
