#TuesdayTeaser His Seduction Game Plan and Fortune’s Prince Charming

As part of our #CelebrationTime Nancy Robards Thompson and I are doing a joint #TeaserTuesday.  You can comment on this blog, like or share this post on FB to be entered to win signed copies of both of our books! We are going to pick two winners one from Nancy’s page and one from my mine.

Fortune’s Prince Charming:


Fortune of the month: Zoe (Fortune?) Robinson

Age: 25

Vital statistics: she is the beautiful, sheltered daughter of computer guru Gerald Robinson – who just might be Jerome Fortune.

Claim to fame: Zoe handles marketing for Robinson Tech. She is also a pro at “handling” some challenging to family members, including her dear old dad.

Romantic prospects: she’s the boss’s daughter, which some might find highly appealing. For Joaquin Mendoza, it means she’s wearing a big sign that says Keep Off.

“They say women of my generation don’t believe in fairytales. We are not sitting around waiting to be rescued by a handsome Prince – we take care of ourselves.

“That may be true, but I still believe in love at first sight. And in recognizing your One True Love when he comes along. For me, that’s Joaquin Mendoza. He’s gorgeous and sexy, but he’s so much more. I feel as if I can see straight into his soul. He wants me, too – I just know it – and I want him to be my first. My first love, my last, my only. But my strong silent hero is holding back. Joaquin has no idea how like we really are…”

“Will you have dinner with me tonight?”

She tipped her head to the side, pretending to think it over. “I guess so.”
“You guess so?”

“You said it yourself. I’m used to classy.” She didn’t want to make this too easy for him. With that pretty face and muscled body, she doubted he ever had to work hard to get a date.

“Oh, I’ll give you classy, Ferrin,” he said. “You just wait and see. I’ll be back at six.”

“I’ll be ready at six thirty,” she said.
He threw his head back and laughed. “You’re a minx.”

Doubtful. But she was tired of the same-old, same-old, and Hunter promised something different.

“Six thirty, then.”

She led him down the hall and opened the front door, leaning back as he brushed past her. But he stopped and put his hand on her chin.

Dinner suddenly seemed like more than just a break in the routine. She suspected he might want something from her but that was okay. She wanted something from him too. A chance to remember she was young and single. Maybe make a memory in California that wasn’t laced with guilt and disappointment.

Recommended Reads For Your Wish List

It probably will come as no surprise to you that a lot of the items on my Christmas list are books. In case you are looking for some good new reads are my favorites for the year!

51qtdZOxkGL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_The first book that I have been eagerly waiting for and have downloaded on my Kindle is Cindy Kirk’s CHRISTMAS IN GOOD HOPE.  Some of you may already know that Cindy and I are good friends. Check out my Events page for a close-up of us blowing kisses from the Harlequin Party last summer! Cindy’s books are always heartwarming and emotional. Her books make me feel like I’ve gotten a warm hug when I’m done with them. In stores and online now, Cindy’s book CHRISTMAS IN GOOD HOPE is the first in her new series and I can’t wait to read it!

Here’s a little blurb:

Ami and Beck would rather forget the past, but this Christmas of love is one to remember.

Amaryllis “Ami” Bloom’s cheerful smile greets everyone in Good Hope, Wisconsin. But her merry facade hides a dark secret she won’t ever forget. Still, she throws herself into celebrating Christmas—and convinces her handsome, and stubborn, new neighbor to join her.

Beckett Cross, however, is determined not to celebrate the holidays. He moved to Good Hope to leave behind reminders of how he’d had it all…and lost everything. But it’s hard to resist adorable Ami, the designated keeper of the small town’s holiday traditions, when she asks for help with the Twelve Nights celebrations. And Ami has a hard time resisting Beck’s soft Southern drawl and gentle eyes. Will a Christmas miracle give them a second chance at love and the hope to heal both of their hearts for good?

The second book I’m recommending is WHY NOT ME? by Mindy Kaling.  I don’t know her but I wish I did!  This book spoke to me from the first blurb I read about it. And I think it’s a really great read.9780804138147_p0_v6_s192x300


In Why Not Me?, Kaling shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it’s falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, or most important, believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you’re constantly reminded that no one looks like you.

Next up is the latest from RaeAnne Thayne A COLD CREEK CHRISTMAS.  I have always had a special place in my heart for the small town charm of the Special Edition series that RaeAnne has created with Cold Creek and this year’s holiday story is now different.  It’s heartwarming and full of the kind of Christmasy feeling that I love.AColdCreekChristmasStory


Sparkle In The Snow Leads To So Much More 

Celeste Nichols has always preferred to keep to herself in her hometown of Pine Gulch, Idaho…until she becomes an instant celebrity! When one of her children’s stories becomes a major success, she’s suddenly the talk of the town. Celeste should be gloriously happy…but something, someone, special is still missing from her life. Could the return of her childhood crush be the answer?

Flynn Delaney has moved back home for his daughter’s sake. Yet all the millionaire’s resources can’t help the little girl heal from the tragic loss of her mother. Shy librarian Celeste and her stories do hold some indefinable magic, though. Flynn came home looking for support—can he find that, and true love, in the one who got away?

Did you hear that?

Do you like audiobooks? I used to listen them a lot when my kids were younger and we’d drive from our home in Florida to the mountains in Georgia to visit my parents in the Fall. We’d rent a cd at the Cracker Barrel near our house and then listen to it all the way up51-PGiMiVcL._SL150_.

So much fun! I also love listening to non-fiction books read by the authors. My favorite is Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. His personality comes through so strongly in the reading.

Several of my books are now available as audio books. I have to be honest and tell you its unnerving hearing someone else read my stuff. Especially The Wealthy Frenchman’s Proposition because the narrator does a French accent for Tristan, which of course, in my head he had, but hearing it read is interesting.

Here is a link to my titles in the Audible shop if you are interested in audio books.  I am giving away a copy of A COWBOY FOR CHRISTMAS from Audible.  Just tell me if you’ve tried audio books or not.  I’ll draw a winner on Monday!

Have a great weekend.51acXw9Ln6L._SL150_
