Mom. Wife. Writer. Reader.  I write romance.  I also write UF as J.C. Daniels.

doing the audiobook... love

Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Met the narrator & heard some sample reads. Amazing.

Finished... I liked

Inside (Bulletproof) - Brenda Novak

I had to read it to see how it ended.  A few things didn't quite come together for me, but overall, I liked it.

Some giveaways

Fragile  - Shiloh Walker Blade Song - J.C. Daniels

I listed a couple of giveaways over on the giveaway page.  One from my Shiloh side and then one from my alter-ego, J.C. Daniels.  You can find them, and other giveaways over here...



The Perfect Hope (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy #3) - Nora Roberts

I had these signed for me by Nora Roberts when I signed with her at TTP... (choke, heart still stops when I think about that).  They are my keeper shelf.  This one was my favorite.  Ryder is a gruff, abrupt ass and that's very often my favorite kind of hero to read.  I liked this one the best.

Blade Song (written by my alter-ego) is the book of the week on iBooks (and it's free)

Some cool news...  Blade Song is the Book of the Week on iBooks this week! This means... it's free! If you haven't tried my alter-ego out, now is the time. This is urban fantasy, not romance, although there is a romantic aspect to it.

Enjoyed it.

The Last Boyfriend (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy #2) - Nora Roberts

I enjoyed it.  It's not my fave Nora, but the thing with Nora...even the ones that aren't faves suck me in and I love reading them.  I've never been disappointed with a book from her.

Just completely and totally glutted on the Halstead Hellions series

A Lady Never Surrenders - Sabrina Jeffries

I rarely read historicals but when I get in the  Apparently I was in the mood.  I read five this week, all by Sabrina Jeffries.


Loved them all, but I think this was my favorite.

What Bullying Really Looks Like

Reblogged from J. Dallas:

I hate telling this story. Just the thought of doing so, of exposing my past to even a handful of other people, makes me feel sick to my stomach. But with Goodreads' change in policy occurring and the word "bullying" being slung around so casually, I think it's time.

Happy Hobbit Week!


Some believe it is only Great Power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. It have found that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.

I need this book. Now.

Disenchanted & Co., Part 2: His Lordship Possessed - Lynn Viehl

The last one killed me.

Reblogged from Karen's books:

liked it for the most part

Guilty as Sin - Jami Alden

I enjoyed it for the most part.  I guessed the killer from the get go.  I tend to do that with a lot of books so that's not a problem.  The main issue I had was that nobody keyed into him sooner. It seemed that somebody should have-he was written skeevy enough that he should have set off alarm bells to somebody.


Other than that, I enjoyed it.  Hero and heroine were likable, the romance was believable and the overall plot worked.  I'll definitely check more of her stuff out.
