And it’s hotter than July!
This is a favorite scene:
“You’re welcome. Scrapper’s not really a bad guy,” she interrupted hurriedly to defend her brother. “He just gets carried away, that’s all.”
“Carried away?! You call kidnapping me and tying me up simply getting CARRIED AWAY?”
“If he didn’t tie you up, what would have been the point of going to the trouble of kidnapping you?” she queried reasonably.
Saul put an arresting hand on her arm. Stopped walking. Stared at her.
She shrugged. “I’m just saying. You said being tied up as if it has the equal weight of being kidnapped when it’s such a given part of the process that it’s not even worth mentioning really.”
“Libra. Stop. Don’t even.” Saul wanted to scream, but made himself say calmly, “I can’t believe you’re trying to apply logic to even this fucked up, irrational situation.”
She grimaced. “Sorry. Habit.” Genuine concern was back in her gaze as she said, “I know your head must be hurting and it’s dark and late. As you’ve never been here before, I’m sure you’ll have a hard time finding your way home, so I’ll drive you.” Her soft alluring voice was the stuff of a thousand wet dreams and the number one reason he had no business accepting a ride or anything else from her.
All I Want for Christmas, the fourth book in the Christmas at the Meadowlark series, will be released tomorrow July 22, 2018. And don’t forget, today’s the last day to get the third book, A Lot Like Christmas for .99¢.
Sometimes the best family is the one you make for yourself.
Libra wanted Saul from the moment they first met and he didn’t hesitate to let her know the feeling was mutual. After a shocking discovery, scars from her tragic past compelled her to push him away. Then came the Christmas she would never forget—the night he announced his engagement…to her sister. The wedding is fast approaching and torn between guilt and regret Libra is determined to keep her secrets and support her sister.
Confused and hurt by Libra’s rejection Saul decided to finally yield to family pressure and get married. It didn’t hurt that his fiancée’s ambitions meshed perfectly with his own. Though his intended bride is an excellent business partner, sweet Libra still has his heart.
When the wedding day finally arrives both are caught up in a whirlwind not of their making and in the end the question remains; which sister will be his bride?
Okay, kids, the third book in the Christmas at the Meadowlark series is .99¢ for one week only. This Christmas in July sale is the hottest thing ever and we’re just getting started. Remember, the next book in the series, All I Want for Christmas drops on July 22nd. Guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit no matter how hot it gets!
I have a crazy long commute so I listen to a lot of podcasts. My current fave is called Revolutions. So far he’s gone from the English Civil War to the American Revolution to the French Revolution and then the Haitian Revolution. Being a history geek I already knew a little bit about these but not nearly enough. The Haitian Revolution has been particularly interesting. I love the way he called them The Avengers of the Western Hemisphere. And the crucial relationship between that revolution and the South American Revolution which I’m listening to now is fascinating.
As you know I frequently use current or historical events as backdrops for my stories. I can guarantee I will have some stories from these if not a whole series.
I’ve only got four books up so far, though I found out today I can do a bulk upload so I hope to get the rest up this weekend. I know some of my international readers prefer GooglePlay and Kobo. It’s exciting to find a new (to me) vendor, but please be patient while I get the rest of the books uploaded. Thank you.
Other than creme brûlée macarons are my favorite dessert. Try as I might, I’ve only managed to make the finicky little cookies a handful of times. Maybe that’s why…oh yeah, Lisa said no spoilers. You’ll just have to wait until the 22nd to see what happens to them. Don’t miss, All I Want for Christmas, July 22nd.
I can say that Libra is my second heroine to own a bakery. I am a passionate baker and I tend to have characters involved in things I have an interest in. Oddly enough, though, I haven’t had a character who is a quilter. At least not yet.
