Cowboy Giveaway!

Hello all! This weekend was my 29th birthday (yes, the FIRST 29th birthday). I wish I could give away 29 books to celebrate. Instead, I’m giving away a Kindle copy of one of my all-time favorite books. I’m even reading it right now, trying my best to stretch it out as much as possible. Because this is one of those books I wish I could stay in, almost, forever. Becky Wade’s “Meant to Be [...]

People Being People

You know what I like about stories? People being people. People are interesting. Or is it just me? Everyone has something special about them. A quirk, if you will. I read a book recently where one of the characters talked to the cars on the road and did online stress shopping. Yes Austin, you know that story 😉 (Falling For You by Becky Wade). These were small things in the grand scope of the [...]

What Were You Reading?

Book Giveaway!

I’ll spare you the gory details and suffice it to say that my babies went through a long, messy phase and I was an angry zombie. I didn’t do much besides stay afloat…but somehow there was a little time for books. And thank God for that. Being honest, I was in rough shape. I [...]

Beyond Happily Ever After

Poked through with needles. An I.V. digging into the sensitive skin of my inner arm. Flat on my back on a hospital bed. The panic-inducing scent of antiseptic filling the air. Not exactly setting the scene for a romantic dinner, am I? And yet, this became the backdrop for a romance revelation the week leading up to Easter. For those who don’t know, I had the unfortunate experience of going through a stroke several [...]

Obsessive Reading

Do you ever find a new author you just can’t stop reading? Who writes books so exquisite that even when the floors need mopping, blog posts need writing, and groceries need picking up, it’s impossible to stop? My latest author-find is Jennifer Peel, writer of sweet, contemporary romances. Her books have plenty of humor, romance and Southern Mommas who better not be messed with. Ten days ago, I hadn’t even heard about Jennifer Peel. [...]
