My husband might have side-eyed me for measurement for an "I love me" jacket. Pretty sure it will be under the Christmas tree this year.

So for starters, I'm working on a brand new series that I hope to start releasing in 2020. I'm not ready to reveal all the details yet, but it will be fun, a little sexy, and a little mysterious.

I'm also working on a novella that will set sail sometime in 2020 or 2021 depending on how things go. It's all about second chances and first loves.

But taking precedence is my last two women's fiction books for Annie's Fiction and their Inn at Magnolia Harbor series. (less)

There are really three couples that hold first place for me.
David St. James and Vivi LeBrun from WORTH THE WAIT by Jamie Beck.
Eve Dallas and Roarke from the In Death series by JD Robb
Cat and Bones from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost

I fell in love with Vivi and David from the start. They were so different, yet each saw that something special in the other that no one else noticed. I think that's what it is about Eve and Roarke too. They saw past the exterior to the person inside and excepted them for who they were. For Cat and Bones, it was their attitude that first grabbed my attention. Beyond that, it's the fact that they would die for each other and the other person's happiness matters more to them, than their own does. (less)

The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

I finally got to read the full story of THE BOYFRIEND PROJECT and I LOVED IT.

If you read my “extended preview review” you’ll know that I was captivated right from the start by this book. I love strong, smart heroines and female characters and Farrah Rochon totally delivered. But for a romance to work, it has to have great chemistry between the two main characters, in this case, Samiah and Daniel, Read more of this blog post »

"5 - "Now, tomorrow, and always..." Stars!

Not quite as good as book three, better than book two, and by my reckoning there are at least six secondary characters in this book that the author could give stories too (everything crossed here for that).
