Winter's Blues GiveawayWINTER’S BLUES GIVEAWAY

First thought— Don’t forget to sign up for my latest giveaway for a chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

Second thought — Still on Meghan and Harry’s side concerning the Royal Scandal. American point of view…first Meghan is one of ours. Yes, we romance lovers read Regency romances all the time, but we don’t really want to marry a real prince. We love our freedom of choice. Being locked inside a zoo really doesn’t do it for us…isn’t that what it must be like to marry into the Royal Family. Mostly, I hate it when it is said that Meghan is coming between Will and Harry. I just don’t think its fair to expect Harry to live in the shadow of a brother just because of birth. Let Harry spread his wings and see what kind of good he can do. Just my thoughts.

Third thought— Still upset with Survivor…and its killing me that they are bringing back the winners over the 40 seasons. But I can’t get over last season…

Fourth thought— Living in New England, I have to say something about the Patriots. My husband and son are depressed thinking that Tom Brady could leave, but my thought is appreciate the twenty great years he has given us and SIX superbowl championships. Life will go on.

Fifth thought— I broke down and got CBS Access. Yes, Picard did it for me. I couldn’t stand not watching it and honestly I think I’m going to love it. The question becomes is it worth it for one show.

Sixth thought—The world has a lot of issues that we all can worry about. Big ones: climate change, epidemics and the threat of war. Small ones: mortgage, kids, and parents. Sometimes everyone needs to escape. Advice—read a book, go to the movies, or get a massage. Escape if its only for a moment. Makes it easier to deal with reality.

Take care and have a great weekend!

51Ds1ruPJ8L._SX342_LADY BE BAD

The Lady Was Determined to Get Her Man and Answers

When the invitation arrived, Marlayna O’Brian was stunned. There was her ex-husband’s name attached to both an engagement announcement and the opening of Kingman Castle, Jorstadt Island, in the St. Lawrence.

Noah Drake walked out of her life without a word – just divorce papers. She wanted answers and he was the only man who could provide them.

When Marlayna RSVP’d she had only one aim in mind: to be in Noah’s arms again – no matter what she had to do to get there.

She gave him fair warning: “Seduction is the plan for today. Keep on your toes, Mr. Drake. You never know when or where I’m going to strike!”

5118LWzlmWL._SX342_MOON SHELL BEACH

Best friends Lexi Laney and Clare Hart shared idyllic girlish adventures all over Nantucket Island, spending much of their time at their secret hideaway, Moon Shell Beach, a magical place where they remade the world.

But when Lexi eloped to a life of luxury at age 19, she left behind a broken friendship with Clare and resentment from nearly everyone else. Now Lexi has returned to Nantucket after 11 years and a bitter divorce.

Clare, a chocolatier living at home with her widowed father and dating a gorgeous carpenter, finds forgiving and forgetting more difficult than she ever imagined. In the less innocent world of adult men and women, awash in failed loves and romantic disappointment, the estranged soul mates struggle to recapture the feelings of bliss that came so easily to them as children.

As an emotional tempest sweeps the vibrant, tight-knit island community, Nancy Thayer’s irresistible and deeply moving novel deftly explores the evolution of a lifelong friendship, the power of forgiveness, and the rewards of believing in miracles.

Set against the backdrop of Antebellum Charleston with the martial clash of brother against brother looming on the horizon, here is an absorbing, tantalizing saga of life during one of our country’s most turbulent times.

Belle of Charleston, Book One

In a world of pageantry and show, the Montgomery family accepts the way of life that has been Antebellum Charleston for over 100 years. Two cousins, the handsome and debonair Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Smythe, were born to be brothers. Raised as Southern gentlemen, their character could never be questioned – loyalty, honor, duty to one’s country, God, and family. It was the tie that binds until their bond is threatened, not only by the cry for secession but by a woman – Josephine Buchanan Wright.

Josephine Buchanan Wright is a dutiful, southern belle. Her future seems fated to the two Montgomery cousins until all she has placed her faith in falls apart. As her life spirals out of control, she tries desperately to cling to the honor and duty that has been instilled in her. But how can she do so when all she has known is no more?

In the second book in number-one New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series, tempers – and temperatures – are rising!

A mercenary in magic-torn Atlanta who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen it all – and some things she couldn’t even have imagined. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow like an ocean current. But once every seven years, a paranormal flare comes and brings magic like a tidal wave. Now Kate faces problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary organization of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes the stakes. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the first contest in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop their cataclysmic showdown, the city may
