    Falling In Love With Romance

    I'm an avid reader of Harlan Coben's books, so of course, the second I laid my hands on Missing You, I knew it would be next up. Blurb: Surfing an online dating site, NYPD detective Kat Donovan feels her whole world explode. Staring back at her is her ex-fiancé, the man who shattered her heart—and whom she hasn’t seen in eighteen years. But when Kat reaches out to the man in the profile, an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light. As Kat begins to investigate, her feelings are challenged about everyone she’s ever loved—even her father, whose cruel murder so long ago has never been…

    Maybe I’m morbid but I have a habit of thinking doomsday scenarios whenever the slightest hiccup happens in my life. For example the latest episode with my knee buckling and me not being able to walk or stand or wear most of my shoes or practice yoga or dance. My favorite dance is the Twist and I just know my twisted knee would not like it. I sigh to think that the Twist may be firmly in my past. So that would be the doomsday version. To never do any of those things again. There are other things that are worse than temporarily losing the use of a leg. Losing the use of both legs.

    21 May 2015 | 7:25 am
    Moving along to the next installment of my #TBT look the Bachelor Chronicles series (in advance of the June 2nd release of Mad About the Major), this week we are going to look at How I Met My Countess. Opening up what I think of as the last third of the Bachelor Chronicles is a trio of books about the Widows Standon. The idea for the book came from Love Letters of a Duke, where the hero laments having these warring dowagers from the previous heirs driving him crazy. I wondered about these three and then came up with the idea that all three had married very young and not really all that…

    In my continuing #TBT look at my Bachelor Chronicles series (in advance of the June 2nd publication of Mad About the Major), today’s smack down is more of a cover standoff: Confessions of a Little Black Dress v. Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress. A little background might be in order–after writing Love Letters from a Duke, Avon asked me to come up with a title that had the same sort of communication theme. I absolutely wracked my brain trying to find a “Letters” sort of title for Tally’s book. And then, driving down the highway one morning on the way to take my…

  • The Mice are back!

    24 May 2015 | 6:41 am
    Roland Garros has started today and I'm watching selected matches courtesy of UK ITV 4 relayed here to France. Technology is wonderful!The weather is still not brilliant. We get snatches of sunshine and relax but then it clouds over again. I saw a deer in the field yesterday, around midday, no less. We both saw a fox running across the road as we walked Tim, and DH was startled by the appearance of a mouse almost in front of his nose as he sat at the big desk! The little blighters have had a go at breaking into Tim's sack of biscuits so we've put half in a red metal container - I think it is…

    A brilliant sunny day yesterday, so not much work was done, but I did get a wash load dried, ironed and put away. There's not much work involved in putting  a washing machine on, and apart from that, we downed tools and soaked up the sunshine. Today it is me who has the odd problem - one of my eyes has swelled. Not the eye but the socket and lid. It's either a reaction to pollen, of which there is a lot drifting about on the wind, or some tiny insect has bitten me.I shall be relieved when the farmer has cut all his hay because only then will my nose stop prickling and filling up.

They stayed all afternoon and tonight he's flat out asleep.It's good for him to socialise and it was interesting to watch him go from aggressive Get-off-my-patch to hesitant-can-we-play to full on play. We cut some more grass  and pulled up a few weeds from the patio while all this doggy fun went on..Yesterday was dh's birthday and I promised him I'd cook. I did, but it was a disaster.  Isn't that…

DH got out the mini tractor and began cutting the grass while I unpacked and gave Tim several walks around the fields. I got involved in rescuing plant pots hidden in the long grass then divesting them of the slugs and snails that infested them. Both creatures are so much bigger than than the ones in my garden back home!Then Tim ran over what turned out to be the base of a broken bottle in the long grass around the end…

So close to Stansted on the M11 yet it is a world away from the busy 21st century. We spent three quarters of an hour there with Tim off the lead and racing through the buttercups. We're lucky that though he loves to run, he never runs far from me and his recall is good. We'll certainly stop there on the way back from France. It's a medieval hunting forest now looked after by the National Trust.We have the chairs…

Even better, by college bestie would be in town. It was one of those rare events when everything seemed to go well. We found other friends on the train on the way to the concert.

They'd get into it and give me super smile faces and they were tiny and cute and I just loved it.Now, the big one is so far over it I'm not sure he'll even agree to be in the next one. The middle one is more interested in making faces than taking good photos. And the small one? She has never sat still long enough to take a photo that isn't blurred.It's really too bad for them.

  • My Tooth – One Week Later

    Joely
    23 May 2015 | 8:36 pm
    Checking back with an update on how my tooth is doing. It’s a little hard to tell if the nerve pain is completely gone because of the weather and my allergies. The pollen counts have been very high in the area, and so I’ve had a lot of sinus pressure and headache that makes my face hurt. However, it’s both sides, not just my right, so I don’t think it has anything to do with the tooth itself. I quit drinking the eggshells in my smoothie a few days ago too. There’s a bit of an odor (boiled egg smell) and it makes it hard to drink it day after day. I’ve also…

    When technology stopped working, the world as they knew it ended. In a secluded cabin, John and his loved ones have survived. He should feel grateful. But his family is in his face 24/7, he has to watch his best friend, Arden, and brother, Gabriel, flaunt their love, and as a techie in a Luddite world he's pretty much useless. The cabin is brimming with people, but he feels utterly

    21 Apr 2015 | 6:16 am
    There's a thin line between blood and madness. Children of Night, Book 5 Early Twelfth Century. When the half-civilized Conrad Quintano stumbles upon a stacked battle on an isolated beach, his first instinct is to walk away. What does he care if a bunch of worthless vampires kill each other? But a dying ember of chivalry compels him to rescue the pretty female vampire in distress—radically

  • Focusing On Category #Romance #Blog

    19 May 2015 | 5:46 am
    For a while, I've wanted to target Harlequin's Blaze line. I don't know what stopped me. Perhaps the time wasn't right, or maybe it was the friend who told me Blaze was looking for dark stories a while back. Whatever prevented me from trying seemed to have passed when I heard about the #BlazeBlitz submission call just a few days before the closing date in March this year. I knew it was time to finally focus my attention on this line. Blaze seems to have changed once again. Where they were looking for dark stories, they now seem to have left such tales behind and are publishing lighter stuff.

    After a year of just...man... I can't even begin to tell you about my year! Needless to say, I'm thrilled 2014 is over, and I'm totally looking forward to getting into 2015. I expect it wasn't surprising that by the end of 2014, my body had finally decided to step in and give me a break. I got sick around mid-November and ended up battling one bug after the other. In the end, I caught flu--I've never had flu in my life! But I caught it just before Christmas and it floored me. I'm still not 100% yet, but I'm feeling far more ready to take on the world.I had high hopes for getting out…

    22 May 2015 | 2:30 pm
    I have never (or at least for a decade or two) gone for darkness in my entertainment. I tend to prefer light paranormal and romantic adventure over dark paranormal romances or urban fantasy or suspense. My husband can't drag me unconscious to a horror movie. And when I tried watching Daredevil on Netflix recently, I couldn't watch past the episode where the bad guy decapitated someone by bashing a car door against his head. For, like, 5 minutes.Lately, though, I've gotten myself into some pretty dark stuff. Like iZombie. It didn't start out dark. I mean, as far as zombie fiction goes, it…

Once the last episode aired (so sad!), I canceled my subscription. Or so I thought.I clicked the cancel button, and confirmed I wanted to cancel, and then they have this cute little video telling you that you don't want to cancel. Down to the right, where the eye doesn't naturally fall (trust me, I learned about the Z-pattern thing working at an ad agency), was a check box you had to click to say yeah, I still want to cancel.

No one ever gets too close to him. But then he meetsher. Ella Lancaster is tired of being a prisoner.  She escaped one hell just to find herself in another, but Eric doesn’t consider her containment with his agents as punishment.

      Today is the official release day for TWISTED! TWISTED is the second book in my dark and sexy LOST romantic suspense series–a series about agents who search to find the missing. This book can be read as a complete stand-alone (that’s the way I’m writing all of the books in this series). I LOVED writing the heroine of TWISTED–Emma Castille is a tough, street smart woman who plays by her own rules. She is more than a match for the hero of the tale, LOST agent Dean Bannon. In fact, she blindsides him most of the time! To celebrate the release, I’ll be posting…

That’s before he meets the drop-dead gorgeous con artist who makes him want to lose his legendary control. With her past, Emma Castille doesn’t claim to be psychic. She just notices things other people don’t. Like the fear in a runaway’s eyes—or the pain in an ex-FBI agent’s heart. Her chemistry with Dean is blistering, but Emma…

The hero is Smithfield, Marcus’s best friend from The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior. Here’s the blurb: He was once happily bedding and boxing, but in the newest Duke’s Behaving Badly novel, Nicholas Smithfield has inherited a title and a bride . . .

I was thrilled when they were so well received in the Taming the Alpha box set, and going back to their relationship was a complete joy. The original story didn't allow me to have all the details I wanted in the story, because of the constraints of the box set, so I've been tinkering with it to weave those things back into it before I released it.It's also the beginning of a new series of contemporary romances…

    In April, I kicked off a six-week program of very low carb eating. My mission was two-fold. I wanted to zip my jeans again after a vacation (that happened within a week) and turn a two year “pre-diabetic” diagnosis around. After the first pre-diabetes report, I quit eating sugar. No more desserts. For me, that was huge. I love chocolate and sweets of all kinds. After the second test, one year after giving up sugar, my numbers were better, but I was still pre-diabetic. My doctor suggested cutting carbs that turn to sugar in the body. The white stuff: flour, potatoes, pasta. This…

In another entirely different way, desire leads to liberation, fulfillment and happiness. LaPorte’s Desire Map project, with workshops and books, clarifies desire done right. It has been 21 days life-changing days since my Desire Map workshop with Laura Zera. I’ve done a lot of writing, thinking, and desire mapping.

    Maybe I’m morbid but I have a habit of thinking doomsday scenarios whenever the slightest hiccup happens in my life. For example the latest episode with my knee buckling and me not being able to walk or stand or wear most of my shoes or practice yoga or dance. My favorite dance is the Twist and I just know my twisted knee would not like it. I sigh to think that the Twist may be firmly in my past. So that would be the doomsday version. To never do any of those things again. There are other things that are worse than temporarily losing the use of a leg. Losing the use of both legs.

  • The party's over...

    25 May 2015 | 3:40 am
    The first bit, anyway! Am just about recovering from a weekend of partying. Nicki Gaskin of Select Cakes did us proud with really, really fabulous cakes (and they tasted even better than they looked - went down very well indeed) - the joint one was because archery is a dad-and-son thing, and the 18th one is - well, he's planning a PhD in chemistry so it just had to be a chemistry cake. And this is the four of us just before our posh dinner party :)
  • 18-50 party prep...

    22 May 2015 | 2:51 am
    Helium balloons, birthday banners, table confetti and extra cake fountains - tick. So tomorrow is picking up cakes, delivering one to the hotel for our posh dinner party, and shopping for the houseful-of-teenagers bbq/cakefest. Sunday is manic baking. Oh, and I have a deadline :) Good 121 this morning but forgot to press 'stop' on my workout (and the fitbit doesn't want to edit it, sigh). Rough estimate, we're looking at about 520 calories - 6m peak, 31m cardio and the rest fatburn. Righty. I have words to put down and a shopping list to double-check. Have a nice day :)(Also - new hair...)

    Yesterday was a lovely day (despite exams!) - son had a really lovely birthday. As well as giving him money, we wanted to give him something special to keep for his 18th, and it occurred to me a while back that he'd love the Isle of Lewis chess set. He was really pleased with it. And we had a nice dinner out - he enjoyed ordering his first pint, too. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes :) Oh, and a bit of news from me - my ed liked the revisions, so book 66 has been accepted. Medical romance - no title yet - and we think probably January next year. (Pandora bead for it will have to…

    Happy 18th to Eldest Teen (well - we intend to make it happy, despite the fact that he has his two toughest exam papers today!). He's brought us a lot of joy over the last 18 years and I'm very, very proud of him - he's kind, he's thoughtful, he's bright and he definitely makes the world a better place. This is one of my fave pics of him as a toddler. Happy birthday, Chris, and may the world be your oyster.

Frankly, I'm sure that my readers and my editor would all prefer me to produce stories rather than cudgel my brain to come up with something fresh and new for every single bit of social media every day - but apologies in advance if that comes across as being arrogant, uncaring or snotty. It's not. I'm a working mum of teens in the middle of exam season and milestone birthday, there's other family stuff going on which is a…

Even the snow kite race event was cancelled.  I figured that as the…

To participate, share a movie, TV show or book that fits the self-explanatory title of this fest.I'm rather sure I'm not going to be the only one to pick this TV show and the books it is based on certainly fit the description too. My children bet on how many minutes into an episode of Game of Thrones the first nude scene will occur because lots of skin will be shown every week. Usually full nudity and not just of boobs.

    I thought you'd like to see some of my spring shots.I usually take my camera and drive around, taking shots, and have that planned pronto. There were some gorgeous white bark sycamores along one creek, but parking/walking there is dangerous. Those will have to wait until I have a "spotter" with me.These are called different names, "Johny Jump Ups," "Wild Violets", etc. They are lovely in my back yard. Do you have other names for them?I did take some good yard shots by the house, and the following are some of them:We're having lots of storms in the Midwest, and we use our weather alert…

  • Retrograde-d

    Jenyfer
    22 May 2015 | 8:18 am
    A Mercury retrograde began on Monday – astrologically speaking this causes obstructions to progress, technological issues, slow-downs, traffic problems, etc. I have always been interested in astrology but have only more recently been aware of things like retrogrades. Frankly, it explains a lot! And even if I hadn’t know that the retrograde had started, I’d still have been suffering the effects. Monday evening I was out taking a walk and dropped my phone on the sidewalk, cracking the screen. Tuesday afternoon was spent having that fixed (and picking out a better, more…

    17 May 2015 | 12:36 pm
    I love music. I love taking road trips on my own when I can listen to music LOUD and sing along (with no audience). I have the radio on in my kitchen most of the time when I am home. The only time I don’t really care to listen to music is if I am working or trying to write. If music is playing I am singing along. If I am trying to write, I need to listen to my thoughts! When I was a child, I listened to whatever music my mother played. She had a turntable with a really long stick and she would load half a dozen (vinyl) albums up on the stick and let them play on the weekends as she went…

    There is a vaguely kidney bean shaped flower bed in my front yard, and a large stump of what the neighbors tell me was a pine tree in the narrow end closer to the house. I have been wanting to have the stump removed since we moved in but it has been pretty low on the priority list overall. However, that end of the flower bed tends to get pretty ratty looking in the summer. There is ground cover in that end of the bed that disguises the stump for the most part, however the grass from the yard has migrated into bed as well and is so thoroughly integrated with the ground cover it isn’t…
  • One Thing After Another

    What a busy week it has been – and not necessarily entirely the fun kind of busy. I had a minor, low speed collision in rush hour traffic at the end of last week when the person in front of me stopped suddenly and I bumped them from behind. We opted not to call the police since the damage was minor – and all to my tiny car. It honestly didn’t look like a big deal but that wasn’t what the body shop found of course. So I arranged to drop my car off bright and early Monday morning. Last weekend I drove to Kenosha, Wisconsin for a tennis tournament with my daughter (in my…

    I’m a planner by nature and I find that my weeks always go more smoothly when I have some ideas for dinner before the week starts. Not necessarily a set-in-stone plan for every night of the week – I can wing it a few nights – but at least three ideas of something I can make with what I have on hand. If I’m really on top of things I can think of ideas with enough time to pick up what I don’t already have in stock. The last two weeks have not been great weeks for meal planning. I muddled through much of last week and we got take out twice. This week is not shaping…

    ”They’re Fams, they’re intelligent,” Walker said.“Yes.” Danith looked around, lowered her voice. “Not as intelligent as cats or foxes or dogs, but sentient.” She went over to a big box on the counter at the end of the room, cooed. “Here they are. Adorable.”He peered into the box and found a huddle of small housefluffs piled together and sleeping. Most women would want one. For himself, he was glad he had an adventurous fox on the way.“My Fam won’t eat it, will he? Since Sedwy will be my liason to all of you scary nobles, explaning FirstFamily customs, I don’t want to…

"Ship, what's wrong?" "Transmission from T'Elder GreatHouse requesting help from Ruis Elder, FirstSon and Heir to T'Elder GreatHouse." "Just tell me what's wrong!"

    Camellia was very proud of the decor and ambiance of her tearoom, Darjeeling's HouseHeart. All in all, it seemed like a HouseHeart to her.Not that she knew of a HouseHeart personally, she didn't, but she did her research – hard not to do that when one of her best friends was Glyssa Licorice, the Heir to the PublicLibrary Family. So she had seen records describing HouseHearts in general, and even some private records and holospheres of an unnamed HouseHeart or three. Since the destruction of the HouseHeart led to the complete ruination of a Residence, information on them was stingy.But…

    Yes, anime again. :) I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately, although this one I saw a while ago. It’s called Kyoukai no Kanata or Beyond the Boundary. I loved it so much that I bought it on iTunes. It’s a supernatural humorous romance adventure, which really just hit me in all the right places. Each character has some type of hangup, including some weird perverted ones which the show makes fun of, but which are a bit weird for my American-cultured background. But aside from that, the action and adventure is really entertaining. And the heroine’s sense of being alone, mirrored in…

I have a three-story series of Victorian novellas, The Disciplinarian, The Disciplinarian’s Daughter and The Bet with Red Sage Publishing, and a Roman saga called Conqueror Vanquished with Ellora’s Cave.So imagine how excited I was on a recent trip to Los Angeles to be able to visit the Getty Villa in Malibu, which is dedicated to Greek and Roman antiquities.This place was amazing.

This is written with a lot of humor and I'm enjoying it tremendously. Plus, he gets extra points for acknowledging his ghost writer on the cover. (You don't really think most of those autobiographies of famous people are actually written by them, do you?)

But there’s bad days, too. Where I struggle and sweat and a half hour creeps by and I’ve written three words. And half a day creeps by and I’ve written a sentence and a half and then I quit for the day and play computer games. You know, sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you. ~ George R R Martin
