Great new book, hot off the presses!

In March I got the chance to have one of my books in an anthology with six amazing women--several of whom I didn't know at all until we got together for the anthology. One of those women was Sherry Gammon. I didn't get to read her book Unbelievable until after the promo was over, but I really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to reading Unbearable, because Booker totally has to find the kind of love he can't turn away from, no matter how adamant he was that love and marriage weren't in his future. And I was right, the book is terrific. I love Tess and her issues and seeing her deal with her past and how she and Booker work things out. Unbearable was just released this week. Check it out!



The Port Fare Series~Three Stand-Alone Novels


You met and fell in love with Maggie and Seth as they struggled to survive a couple of ruthless drug dealers and Maggie's incorrigible mom in UNLOVABLE

**
Next came Cole and Lilah as they found love despite her deception while working with Booker (Much to his dismay) to protect everyone from being murdered.



 Now discover Booker and Tess's story!
Booker Gatto is done. Done with women, his old life, all of it. Only the love of his friends in Port Fare keeps him going as he leaves the MET in exchange for the quiet 
life his new law practice will provide. 
Tess Selleck, once as ambitious and determined as she is smart and beautiful, had to leave everything and everyone she loves in San Diego to escape the man who destroyed her dreams and now wants her dead. 
Together Booker and Tess find love when they least expect it, until their pasts drive
them apart. Is there a happily ever after for these damaged lovers? Or is the thought of loving and trusting again simply Unbearable?

Unbearable is the exciting conclusion to the Port Fare Series. Join Booker as he struggles to find his happily ever after.

Garden Goodness: Bugs, monster greens and quackers!

So, last fall my hubby and I moved to Kansas--a trip of 1100 miles. The climate here is pretty different, even though the summer high temps and winter low temps are pretty much the same. We get a lot more rain here and the humidity pretty much hangs out around 70-80% all of the time, instead of the 10-20% averages where we used to live in Utah.

Can I say that I'm loving the humidity? Okay, so in September when we moved here in the middle of a heat wave where it was mid nineties every day and even more humid than it is now, I wasn't loving it very much, but now that I've adjusted, I'm really enjoying the humidity, even if it does mean I get hot and sticky faster.

Bill and I got involved in the local community garden so in addition to having a plot of our own there, we're helping to run the garden, working with school kids who maintain the un-rented plots and grow lots of veggies for their families, the local food pantry and to sell to others.

While I was in the garden today I came across this furry creature.

Plant and insect identification sites have become very good friends of mine lately. If the website I used is right, this caterpillar will eventually become a Virginia Tiger Moth. Not only is this furry friend not as destructive as the potato bugs I've been seeing way too much of, it's also much more interested in the clover than my tomatoes.

I've also had issues with other bugs, as you can see when you check out this picture of a spinach leaf from my garden. Yes, you heard that right. And yes, this is my hand, which is nearly as large as my hubby's. This is on the large end of the leaves that I've been growing, but definitely not the largest. It blows me away how big these babies are getting. And they aren't tough, either. When I prep six or eight leaves for dinner, we have a good sized salad! If I'd realized this was going to happen, I would only have planted half of the spinach seeds. 

I was talking with a woman in the community garden the other day and she said she's never seen spinach and lettuce get as big as it has this year, though, so it probably won't happen again. I don't know how long it'll be before the heat pretty much ends my spinach crop, but we're enjoying it while it lasts.


And new additions to our family, meet Laverne and Shirley, our Blue Swedish and Welch Harlequin ducks. (You didn't actually think I could go a whole year without some kind of poultry, did you?) They are only about three months old and should start laying eggs for us around Halloween, or a little sooner if we're lucky! They're a ton of fun to watch as they waddle around the back yard. My chihuahua likes to chase them, but she isn't really into catching, so they remain unharmed, if a little ruffled. These two girls are doing a great job of keeping the snail and slug population down in the back yard. I was tempted to get more birds, but our back yard is pretty small and I don't want to kill out the grass, so we'll stick with these ladies for now.



I'm going to try blogging about gardening again once per week--there are so many cool things I'm learning right now.

Sweet Confections is a sweet read with sweet prizes

Okay, so I'm a little partial to books about  bakers, as most of you know, but Sweet Confections featuring a baker and former pro hockey player hit all the high notes for me. 

According to Rachel Marconi chocolate heals all wounds. That and throwing darts at pictures of her ex-boyfriend. Burned by yet another bad relationship, Rachel decides to reprioritize her life, putting her dream to compete on a Food Network Challenge on the top of her list and dating at the bottom crossed out in red sharpie. But what's a girl to do when a certain sexy guy keeps asking her out? 

Cue in Graydon Green, a former pro hockey player turned restaurant owner. After a lot of persistent and humorous teasing, he finally convinces Rachel to commit to a date. Just when things begin to warm up, threatening notes directed at Rachel arrive. When her bakery is vandalized, Graydon's protective streak goes on red alert. Is it her obsessive ex-boyfriend stalking her? Or maybe a challenger trying to sabotage the competition?

Either way, Rachel is definitely going to need more chocolate - perhaps drizzled over ice cream and devil's food cake.


Great characters that made me laugh out loud and fall in love--as any good romance should. The suspense angle is a nice counterpoint to their Rachel and Graydon's growing relationship and I love how he just nudges himself into her life despite the fact that she's determine not to get involved in a romance again anytime soon without coming across as pushy or stalkerish. And he handles her, um, fascinating family with aplomb. 

This book is the first of series Danyelle is planning in Crystal Creek as a group of women move into refurbished homes turned into businesses on Indulgence Row. I'm already looking forward to learning more about her characters in book two.

And playing with a few of them myself in my cross-over series. Which starts this summer.

This is Danyelle's first published romance, though not her first book, but romance has been a love of hers for most of her life. If you're intrigued by the book, check out some first chapters on her blog. You can also check out her website, become her fan on Facebook or go buy a copy for yourself on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and soon, Kobo.

Oh yeah, and did I mention there was a giveaway in conjunction with her book launch? Check it out!

After Aunt Avril comes to Star Valley in pursuit of a supernatural killer, people begin disappearing, and the lives of those McKayla holds most dear are threatened. When the janitor reveals that an ancient curse, known as a geis, has awakened powers that defy explanation, McKayla is forced to come to terms with what is real and what is fantasy.

But when visiting teaching stats are low and she learns that one family under her care is in financial trouble, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure they have what they need. If that includes planting surveillance cameras in their home and watching them from a parked car in the woods, well, isn't that what any caring Relief Society president would do?
