I went to a writing conference this past weekend and met a lot of my favorite authors. Jenny Proctor, author of Wrong For You, taught one of the classes. She’s a sweetheart from North Dakota, and I might have grinned all during class because I was so happy to be learning from some pros. Her new book was awesome, so let me tell you about it.

Here’s another great book for you to check out. Chance for Home is a contemporary romance set in Washington D.C. between Kari and Ryan. Here’s the blurb. Continue reading
Okay, this title might sound boring, but the book is anything but! And I’m not talking about the type of pork butts that my husband smokes up outside. I’m just saying (in a long round-about way) that this book is incredibly awesome. It’s one that made me smile the whole way through as characters became friends, and their trials and triumphs became mine as well.
Here’s another great book. It is actually on my 2016 reading list because I read an early copy, but it just released this month. Color of Love by Anita Stansfield is a Regency romance with a unique twist. The heroine is a colored girl of Indian descent and, therefore, doesn’t fit into English society…and never will.

I’ve had quite a bit of down time due to my hip surgery last week. Four days in the hospital, and I felt I needed every second of that healing time. I don’t think I read once while I was in there, and even in the preceding days at home after, I’ve been too uncomfortable to do anything but feel sorry for myself. My own personal pity party.
But it’s over now–for the most part. Day by day my body is healing and I am beginning to want to read again. This latest book–Kept Secrets–was pretty intense. I couldn’t put it down once I started it. Continue reading
Time for another book review. Another one by Jennifer Moore, one of my favorite authors. This story comes to you from the Greek islands in the Regency time period.
Miss Diana Snow is a chaperone for a younger girl as they vacation to Greece. When a charming man named Alexandros barges in on their outdoor luncheon to chat with them and gain introductions, and then just as mysteriously disappears, she can’t stop thinking about him. Continue reading
I have a deliciously sweet story to tell you about today. This one gives me warm fuzzies to review because I read it in the beta-phase and then again once it was published. I loved it both times, but the final version really nailed my devotion to the board. Jennifer Peel is a master at writing books just for me. I swear…she has this ultra-sensitive radar that signals in and finds my most favorite books button to push…and then she doesn’t just push that button once…but about eight times. Yeah. She’s that good.
All her books have hit that button in me, so she ranks in my favorite author category. Her stories have delightful characters that are fun, good-crazy, sweet and sassy. Her plots always make me smile because they snag my attention and then hang onto it tight…and I always am sad to see “The End” because I want to keep reading. Her writing style is crisp and clear, fun and witty. Seriously, I can’t think of anything I don’t like. Continue reading
