My husband and I have a deal. He follows me into quilt shops and I let him take a dirt road. We wind up with days like last Saturday that I started describing in my quilt blog. These are days that we get to be uniquely us, days that bring us closer together, days to love.
After our hamburgers at the Avon Family Cafe, we traveled north toward . . . → Read More: Back Roads Montana
I’m happy to introduce Cheryl Gorman and her new contemporary romance, The Rancher and the Event Planner. I’m a big fan of contemporary romances, especially those with a western theme (probably has something to do with living in Montana)! If you like the blurb and excerpt below, be sure to support the author with a purchase and a review!

Let’s face it, wine and winemaking are entwined with romance. Books about winemakers and the life in Napa and Sonoma are popular. When my husband and I lived in California, we were entranced by the number of wineries around our home in Santa Cruz County. We were so engaged that we wrote a book about that historic region.
We learned a lot about the winemaking process and how hard it is to own and operate a vineyard and winery. By the end of harvest in the fall, everyone is ready for a break, including the vines.

Tess stepped off the train in Billings, Montana on a dusty Saturday morning, freshly minted MFA in her hand, Karate black belt around her waist.
“How ‘bout I meet you for a drink tonight–seeing you’re new in town,” the taxi driver asked.
Only one way to become friends.
The bar was dingy, her new friend late. A cowboy-hatted stranger sat down next to her and started talking. The driver came in and crowded her other side.
The next morning she got on the eastbound train, back to New York City.
Strangers knew their place there.

Interviewer: Our guest is Laurie Bevins, history graduate from Westminster College in Salt Lake City. Her father is a Hollywood television producer. I understand his first movie, a romantic suspense, is coming out next month. Would you like to tell us about that?
Laurie: Um. Not really.
Interviewer: Oh. We were really hoping to hear about the movie. Um. Let’s see. You grew up on . . . → Read More: First Time….I Shot a Gun….
My travel foot is getting itchy. This Montana winter has been the winter that wasn’t–plenty of snow in the mountains, but not here in the Missoula Valley. The open road calls.
Last year we traveled through back roads of Nevada to get to California. I wrote about a creepy rest stop we’d found and the suspense story ideas it generated in a previous post. In December I finally wrote and sold the suspense story — my first. I received the cover from . . . → Read More: Suspense Story Inspiration
In my California Romance Series the heroes and heroines need to go through a change before they can get the love they want and deserve. I’ve found that through my own life, as well as with friends, that love only improves when you face and deal with your own demons.
One of the reviewers of California Sunset hit the nail on the head when she said:
“I guess it is a symbol of our country that adults are afraid to take a chance and stay locked in jobs they do not like just to keep . . . → Read More: Inspiration for Change to Find the Love You Deserve
Admit it. You’ve loved just one in your life. They’re the cool guys…always living on the edge. The sex, when it comes, and it will, is going to be fast, furious and fulfilling. He’ll swear he loves you to the day he’d die, that he’ll change everything about him if you’ll only be his.
And, except in rare cases, he’s lying.
But you don’t care–he could be the one for you and you could be the one to change him–reality be damned!

Yesterday I had the privilege of being part of Kindle’s Daily Deal. It’s an opportunity that not everyone gets and a big thanks to my publisher, Crimson Romance, for getting me that slot for California Sunset.
As the numbers shot up, I felt like a I was at a horse race. My aunt and uncle used to take me to a track somewhere in Pennsylvania across from where they lived in Titusville, New Jersey. We’d sit there in the almost empty stands, eating the occasional bad hotdog and spending a little bit on a bet here and . . . → Read More: Readers –Thank you
