Another Recommended Read

Another book I just recently read was Spirited Away by Cindy Miles. This was Cindy's first book, but it's just delightful! And very well written. I discovered this great book by receiving one of her bookmarks at a writers' retreat this past fall. Since I've always been a fan of ghost romances, this one instantly caught my eye. I'm so glad I got that bookmark! I was a big fan of author Angie Ray's when she was writing her ghost romances back in the 1990's. I've missed them. But Cindy is filling the void for me.

Spirited Away is a fun, tender romance that keeps you wondering if Andie Monroe, a forensic archaeologist, will ever be able to really touch her knight in shining armour, Tristan de Barre, who has been haunting the halls of his castle since 1292. The sexual tension in this novel just sizzles off the page. And Andi and Tristan are joined by some wonderful secondary characters--like Tristan's band of brave and ghostly knights, and Jameson, the staunch but tender-hearted butler.

I loved everything about this book. I couldn't put it down. Bravo, Cindy. I'm looking forward to reading Into Thin Air. Visit Cindy's web site at

Do you like romances with a ghostly character, either as one of the main characters, or a secondary character? If so, why? I've always thought it'd be cool to have a friendship with a ghost. Just think of the unique conversations you could have with someone who experienced history first hand?

Recommended Read

I just finished AT YOUR COMMAND by Harlequin author, Julie Miller. Wow! This is a great book. Julie not only delivers one yummy hero in Marine Zachariah Clark, but she gives the reader insight into what it's like to watch a loved one be deployed for military duty. AT YOUR COMMAND is hot, tender, action-packed and emotional. I loved the chemistry between Zach and Becky, plus the camaraderie and respect between Zach and the men serving under his command. Zachariah Clark is a true romance hero to steal your heart. AT YOUR COMMAND is a Romantic Times BOOKreviews Top Pick, 4 1/2 Stars, and I can see why! And that's one sizzling cover! I wouldn't mind taking a turn at helping him with that pesky shirt!

Have you read AT YOUR COMMAND ? If so, what did you like about the book? Or do you have another Julie Miller book you'd recommend?

Country Fling

Hey, ya'll! I'm hard at work on the second book in my Fling Duo! Country Fling is coming to life and I hope to have it done soon. If you read and liked Cowboy Fling, I hope you're looking forward to Dorie's story. I'm not sure when it will be available, but I'll keep you posted as things progress.

I'm excited about Country Fling because I love my hero, Vin Sheridan. He's 100% cowboy, but he's a cowboy who's heart has been hardened by some tough times. Hmm. I wonder if Dorie Holister has what it takes to soften his heart and help him love again? Guess I'll have to finish writing the story to find out! I guess you could say this is kind of a Beauty and the Beast story, only cowboy style.

In the meantime, I'd love hear what you liked, or didn't like, about Cowboy Fling. Did you have a favorite scene? A favorite character? Just let me know!

Happy Birthday Elvis!

Wow! It's hard to believe if Elvis were still with us he'd be 73 today. Where does the time go?

I hope by now some of you have had a chance to read Studs for Hire: Woman in Charge. If so, I'd love to hear from you. Please share with me what your favorite scene was in the book, and why.
