I'll Be Yours!!!

I'm so happy to have my cover for my Historical Romance, I'll Be Yours, coming soon from New Concepts Publishing!

Here's the blurb,

How far would you go to reclaim a love that does not remember you?

Mallory St. Martin will go to the ends of the Earth and beyond. He's a penniless English Duke, turned daring pirate. His exploits are revered throughout the High Seas, and yet, he'd trade everything for one loving embrace with the woman of his heart. Fearing that he will lose his ancestral legacy, he kidnaps Miss Elizabeth Caulfield. She is the woman of his heart, and she's also the richest heiress in all of Christendom.

He seeks only two things, to kidnap her and steal her heart. But to do so, he must ruin her reputation so that she will be forced to marry her or suffer social shame. By marrying Elizabeth, he will gain his true hearts desire, and gain the money in her bank accounts.

Unfortunately, Mallory has met his equal match in Elizabeth. She has molten fire coursing through her veins, and she will not be manipulated. At every turn, she gives him a run for his money, and slowly starts to lose her heart to the sea thief. Elizabeth is a skilled gambler, and Mallory is a skilled seducer.

Neither one will admit defeat. But in this game called love, which will emerge the victor?

Will Elizabeth discover that there is a greater love than that for money, or will her house of cards come tumbling down around her? With Mallory by her side, she'll find out that one true man has the power to sweep her away into a world that dreams are made of.

    Josephine Wall Wednesday!

    As most of the readers of my blog know, I love, love Josephine Wall's art. I'm a huge fan. So, thanks to Ellen's suggestion, I'm going to have a Josephine Wall Wednesday whenever I remember to post...LOL

    Here's a nice little slideshow of her breathtaking art for you to savor. :) If you happen to be a sagittarius (I'm a Gemini) you'll spot her zodiac art depicting the archer of Sagittarius. Enjoy!

    Snow Angels!

    Ava Carrolton has decided to make her own fate this holiday season. Tired of being alone and hoping to find love, she finally agrees to date the dashing and persistent owner of the department store where she works. Who wouldn’t enjoy spending time with a man who looks like a GQ model? But, she has one misgiving. She doesn’t feel The Spark with Mr. Debonair, so how is she to know if he’s The One?
    When Ava literally bumps into Noah Shepard, every girl’s definition of The Boy Next Door, they form an unlikely friendship. As they bond, Noah seems to transform through Ava’s eyes. His thick frame glasses and shy stutters fade away, while a knight in shining armor emerges. Will Ava choose excitement and security with the handsome store owner, or a lifetime of making snow angels with a man who’s anything but ordinary?

    Snow Angels, by my friend Ellen Peters was released yesterday. Sorry, Ellen, I think I had a brain freeze yesterday...I should have blogged about this like yesterday...:) So, here it is. I've already bought my copy, now it's your turn.

    Go here to buy it!

    Winter Wonderland

    I thought the above slideshow of Josephine Wall art was fitting for today, since I'm literally in a Winter Wonderland right now. Everything is covered in looks like a marshmallow explosion outside. The snow is almost covering the fence around our yard. Eye popping, I tell you.

    Oh, and on another note, it seems my two Yorkie Girls have good taste...they too like Johnny Depp. How do I know? Shylah barked at me when I put Pirates on if to say, hey, play it! And, when he comes on the screen if she's in anothe room, she boots it just to see him...Funny. :) I guess you can say she has a bad case of puppy love...LOL

    What Christmas Carol Are You?

    Your Christmas Song Is

    Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
    Had a very shiny nose.
    And if you ever saw him,
    You would even say it glows.

    For you, Christmas is a mix of tradition and fun.
    You're not above strapping on a red blinking nose for a laugh

    Well, at least I'll never be lost in the dark... :)

    The Promise!

    The Promise
    Faery Miniature Rose
    Marly Mathews

    Holly St. Christian is a woman with no real place in the world. Her parents were killed in an accident when she was still a child, and her aunt died almost one year ago. She’s looking forward to a sad Christmas, she’ll be spending it alone…or so she thinks.

    Nathanial Richardson is an intelligent wealthy businessman. He isn’t expecting to find love during the Christmas Holidays, but when Holly blows into his life all bets are off.

    Can a matchmaking ghost bring these two together? Christmas is the best time for miracles, so it’s worth a try. Holly and Nathanial are linked in more ways than one. By falling in love they’ll fulfill a promise never kept, and they’ll finally put a wandering spirit at rest—perhaps, the ghost will even be given his angel wings.

    Today is the day! The Promise will be available for purchase today! If you love Christmas love stories, this story is for you! So, if you're interested, don't delay, get your copy today by following this link,

    I had so much fun writing this's poignant yet, it has enough humour in it to lighten up the dramatic parts. I hope everyone that reads it feels the Christmas spirit in it. :)
