LOL! I bet you don’t. Thank you for indulging me with some time off. It was truly a very hectic time as I was busy researching a new book, swamped with my legal work and very hands-on with building and installing some fixtures for my daughter’s new surf and skate shop location. I love working with my hands and as tiring as it was, it was very satisfying to see the location taking shape.
Here are some photos of the fixtures and shelving I put together. My daughter had some great ideas for them and I was glad to help.
I’m in the midst of a number of work, writing and moving issues and will be taking a little break from the blog. Don’t worry, though! I’ll be back after Memorial Day, bright and energized. Thanks for your understanding!
I have to say I was on the fence about Ryan until I started watching Crazy, Stupid Love the other day. Wow. So sexy. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to finish watching the movie, so I’ll have to track it down.
This is a Vine with Ryan Gosling created by Ryan McHenry, a Scottish film director who unfortunately died of cancer just a short time ago. Ryan McHenry was known for his humor and upbeat personality. RIP.
This Vine is from the Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal Vine series.
The two Ryans had some laughs over the Vines and here is Ryan Gosling’s tribute to Ryan McHenry.
Almost three years ago I released The Prince’s Gamble, a romantic suspense story set in Atlantic City.
I’m happy to say that I’ll be re-releasing that novel in early June. The re-release will include a print version of the book for those of you who love to have them as keepers. I’ll also be re-releasing the second book in the series, To Catch a Princess, in July.
Many of you had been asking whether there would be a third story in the series with the thief from To Catch a Princess and I’m happy to say “Yes!” Once I finish writing Embrace the Night, the next book in the Take a Chance series, I’ll get to work on a story for the thief.
It is baseball season, so look for lots of sexy baseball players for Man Candy Monday! Today’s choice is catcher Jason Castro. Jason is a catcher for the Houston Astros and was a reserve catcher for the 2013 All-Star Game.
Today’s throwback is to my very first book signing. It happened in the Menlo Park Mall in Edison at the Barnes & Noble there. So exciting. They had me at a nice table toward the front of the store and gave me some flowers. My hubby and daughter brought me more flowers. This shot is of me with my daughter! How time flies.
STAY THE NIGHT has to be one of my favorite stories. I loved that big strong Navy Seal Rafe Castillo is still in love with his wife after nearly five years of separation, but wondering whether she is still in love with him. I loved that Elena, Rafe’s wife, has grown and made something of herself, but still wants to fight to keep her husband even though their marriage was forced on them by an unwanted pregnancy.
I enjoyed exploring the dynamics between the two and having them find out that as different as they had both become during the five years of their marriage, their love was still strong.
A couple of years back a group of us got together for a booth at Philly Comic Con. Stephanie Julian, Judi Fennell, Laura Kaye and myself had a blast there meeting people, selling books, and chasing after our own fav movie and television stars. Here’s a photo of Laura and me at our booth.
