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?
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.
You only have a few more days to get the second book in the Christmas at the Meadowlark series .99. The sale ends Saturday.
And remember, the fourth book in the series, All I Want for Christmas, will be released on July 22nd!
Been tooling around in PhotoShop again. What do y’all think? I like the refreshed covers and have a few more planned. This is such an awesome story I think it deserved a cover to match.
When Ryannon shows up on Gabriel’s doorstep claiming that he is an archangel with the power to trigger the Apocalypse and that he’s in danger from an End of Days cult he thinks she’s crazy — crazy hot — but still crazy. Despite being a trumpet player named Gabriel, the life he’s led has been anything but angelic, however he has no choice but to believe her especially since the cult is already in hot pursuit. He and Ryannon must go on the run to save themselves and dozens of others from the cult leader’s diabolical schemes. Even the desperate circumstances are not enough to dampen the fiery lust that pulls them together.
Gabriel knows that Ryannon is the one for him, but he’s a player and always has been and Ryannon has no intention of being just another woman in his bed. Will they survive long enough to develop trust and find love, and somehow avoid inadvertently setting off the Apocalypse?
Catch up with all the wacky happenings at the Meadowlark—ON SALE!!! Starting Sunday July 1st one book from the series will go on sale for .99! For one week only. Then on July 22, we’re dropping the latest and funniest book from the series, All I Want for Christmas. If you haven’t already been onboard, this would be a great time to catch up.
Finally got around to doing a new cover for this book. I never liked the original cover, but it’s what I had to work with back then so we went with it. I like this one so much better. Since I have nothing but time these days, being under the weather and all I thought I’d get some of these housekeeping issues taken care of.
I don’t know if I ever mentioned it, but Hot For Teacher was inspired by a blog post from a blogger who deleted her blog nearly two decades ago and vanished to the ether of time…or did she? Either way, it was hilarious then and having dug it up out of the Wayback Machine it’s still funny as hell now.
The hero reminds me of this big bodybuilder looking guy who was a teacher at an elementary school. Watching this massive man be so sweet and tender with the littles got my juices flowing and I had to make him a romance hero. Nothing like big hulking dudes with tiny kids, I love it!
So what do you think of the new cover? Yes, no?
Some of you might have noticed that I changed the title of Christmas Wishes & Kisses to A Lot Like Christmas. I never liked the previous title, and this one suits the story better. We changed the font for the titles of the whole series. This one is just a lot easier to read. Nothing else has changed, so don’t accidentally buy it again! Thanks!
Hard to believe that it’s been ten years since my first fiction book, Rock Star, was published. (Actually, it’s in September, but I’m impatient.)
To commemorate that glorious event I’ve redone the covers for all the books in the Rockers of Storm Crow series, and plan to release the final book in the series, Storm Crow, late this year or early next year.
Thank you for your support of this series over the years. I’m so proud to have written the very first rock star romance and your reception has been incredible. As always, Lovers Rock.
