Three Historical Romance Novellas


THE PROMISE THAT KATY DID, by Annette Lyon: After the death of Sue Ellen, the closest thing she has to family, Katy knows it’s time to leave the house she’s lived in as a guest and start over in the city. She quickly secures a job, but before leaving, she must honor the unusual promise she made to Sue Ellen on her deathbed: meet with Mr. Balmer. The elderly gentleman arranges for his grandson Barrett to escort her to a town dance. That evening, shy Katy quickly feels at ease with her partner. If her new position weren’t taking her from town, perhaps something could develop between them. But Barrett may not feel the same about her, and besides, they don't have enough time to find out.

A LADY OF SENSE, by Sarah M. Eden: Eleanor Sherwood has lived her entire life under her parents’ thumb with little hope of escape. When they choose the unbearable Mr. Broadstead to be her future husband, she begs her father for another option. He arranges for her to meet Peter Havensham, who quickly proves himself a good and kindhearted gentleman, completely different from Mr. Broadstead, and utterly undeserving of a forced engagement. Eleanor cannot bring herself to prey upon Peter’s honor, but neither can she imagine a life with Mr. Broadstead. What is a lady to do when faced with such an impossible choice?

A SECOND CHANCE, by Heather B. Moore: Virginia needs a new start in order to recover from her broken marriage, so when her best friend Millie invites Virginia to Chicago, she goes to live with her friend’s family. But when Millie asked Virginia to participate in a double-date, Virginia knows she’s not ready to start dating again. Reluctantly she agrees, only to find out that Max might just be the man who can repair the cracks in her heart.


Three Contemporary Romance Novellas

BRAELYNN’S BLIND DATE, by Victorine E. Lieske. When Braelynn agrees to go on a blind date, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot. Tyler is gorgeous and the perfect gentleman. Of course she should have known it was too good to be true. It turns out that Tyler really wasn’t Tyler, but a random stranger who went along with Braelynn’s mistaken assumption. So, she chalks it up to a dumb mistake until she gets to work Monday morning and discovers that her gorgeous blind date is now her new boss.

BIANCA’S HOPE, by Rachel Branton: A blind-date-gone-wrong is not the way Bianca would have chosen to celebrate the news that she might be losing her business, but saying no to the sister who took care of her after their mother’s death proves impossible. So for one date, one torturous evening, she’ll endure the company of an infuriating, heartless man she has no intention of ever seeing again. She doesn’t expect her heart to have other plans. Bianca soon learns that sometimes the unexpected is not only what you need, it’s exactly what you’ve been waiting for all along.

BLIND SPOT, by Sariah Wilson: Ria has prepared most of her life to meet her prince, trouble is, her mother keeps yanking her back to reality. So when Ria reads about a country teeming with princes, she drops everything and applies to grad school. But every blind date goes wrong, and while Ria commiserates with her roommate Tessa and Tessa’s totally un-prince-like brother Paolo, Ria discovers that all the things she thought she wanted in a man are far from what she really needs.

Classroom Library Update!


It's the first day of school! I just wanted to show you a how-it-all-turned-out picture of my daughter's classroom library that I've been working on for the past few weeks.

Isn't it great? I was so glad to have found not only the books, but also the animal print blankets and pillows. I'm so proud of this little library! I hope the kids love it, too. And that it's a great year in sixth grade!

Is it back to school for your family?

Interview with Award-Winning Author Sian Ann Bessey!


I was so excited to welcome Sian Ann Bessey to book club this month. Not only does she write amazing books, but she also was born in England and raised in Wales and has a great accent. I could have listened to her all night!

We did a fun video interview, though, for those of you who couldn't make it, and she answered a lot of questions. If you'd like to see it, you can click here

Sian has a new historical romance coming out in November and I think I'll be first in line to get my copy!

I'm Celebrating My New Release With A Giveaway!



The Marquess Meets His Match is LIVE! I am so excited that this day is finally here!

To celebrate, I am offering three awesome prizes, a book basket, a $25 Amazon gift card, and an autographed copy of The Marquess Meets His Match. Don't forget to tell your friends!

If you can't wait, you can get your copy here or scroll down and enter the giveaway!

Here's the back copy:

Lord Christian Wolverton―known as Wolf in a covert group operating during the war against Napoleon―has been called home from his military duties. For the moment, his family responsibilities require him to suspend his more clandestine activities. But information falls into his hands that a traitor will soon try to tip the scales back into French favor and Christian doesn't have much time to stop it from happening.

Going to the one person who can help him, the powerful Duke of Huntingdon, Christian comes face to face with Lady Alice. She’s a beautiful member of the ton with a very big secret―she’s also a trained agent and already on the case. Forced to partner with her to lure the traitor out of hiding, Christian wants to quickly close the case himself, before Lady Alice is more closely involved. But Lady Alice has ideas of her own and she’s going to prove her theories correct―with or without him.

Danger is closer than they think, however, and it’s a race against time to expose the traitor’s identity before British lives are endangered. Both Christian and Alice have strong opinions on who he is, but which one will be proven right?

My Favorite Spy Show Alias


I've been re-watching my favorite spy show Alias with my son and his wife. We finished the series finale tonight and I admit, I loved watching Sydney and Vaughn again. I love that the show stayed true to their romance and we got our happy ending.

Of course Seasons one, two, and three are my favorites where we are being set up for a lot of big reveals and unraveling the msyteries of Rambaldi. I love that the writers made even the most unbelievable plots believable. It was fun to see Sydney attending college one day only to be recovering Rambaldi artifacts in the Antarctic the next day. Her relationships with her father and mother were complicated, her interactions with co-workers were so believable and, of course, her chemistry with Vaughn was off the charts. It had it all in the character department and was a really fun spy show. I really, really wish they would do a reboot of it. The series finale definitely left that door open.

Did you watch Alias? Do you have an old series favorite that you like to watch over and over?
