Yesterday morning my youngest son buckled into the driver's seat, followed all the rules of the road at just the right time, and a California state employee granted him the right do drive all by himself.

I really do think I was more nervous than him as he pulled away from the curb. Being a Mom bus driver for so many years has had its glorious place, but I'm soooo over it! As my children grew, a... Read more of this blog post »

When Lizzie finds herself trapped in time with Fin, the one man she finds both irresistible and maddening, she agrees to combine forces with him to rid Scotland of the evil witch, Grainna. Finlay MacCoinnich’s attraction to Lizzie sizzles the very air they breathe. Tearing down the solid walls the woman has built around her won’t be easy, but he’s willing to do anything to keep her by his side.

The ghosts are mostly kind, lost souls, but when a lovely, erotic dream about Ethan turns into a nightmare, Lauren wakes to an ice-cold room and the fear that she’s not alone. Ethan's attraction to Lauren blooms the first time he sees her. As they grow closer, he realizes she is hiding something, but never expects her secret to be a ghostly stalker. Ethan’s only concern is protecting Lauren, but when the ghost becomes violent, Ethan must risk everything to save her. Can Lauren let him take that risk alone?

Shelly Kotalik Hi Catherine!

We don't know eachother but you sent a request to me to be my friend, so I thought: what the heck, why not!? Perhaps you made a mistake? Oh well, the more the merrier. I see you read and enjoyed the Circle Trilogy from Nora Roberts. Me, too. Tremendously! Ah, what's not to like about a steamin' hot vampire? heh heh.


Catherine I'm really not sure how to navigate this site. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
