Today I’m giving away a copy of A Ghost of a Chance at Love!
 
Lisa Welsh only wishes to leave a messy divorce behind for a couple of days stay in Salado, Texas but wakes to nightmares and a cowboy in her bed, and she has no earthly idea how he got there. But the situation gets worse when she learns she’s now living in 19th Century Salado. Even more worrisome is the tall dark stranger, and everyone else in town believes she’s some woman named Josephine Rogers who is supposed to be dead.Jack Stanton can’t believe the clerk gave him an occupied room at the Shady Villa Inn, but worse, he was ready to ravage the woman in that bed—until he realized his mistake. Now the woman he thinks is Josephine claims to be some other woman—and though he could never abide by Josephine’s fickle ways, this Lisa Welsh intrigues him like no other. Still, if she isn’t Josephine, he figures he best help her find her way back to where she really belongs no matter how much he wants to keep her with him.

Together, Lisa and Jack must solve the mysteries and face the troubles in their worlds or they will never be free to share the love that binds them across the ages.

So the question to win a copy of A Ghost of a Chance at Love  is: Would you take a chance to find romance and love in the old west? Or would you rather take the old west with you to contemporary times?
Good luck and have fun!

A Jaguar on an Easter Egg Hunk?

April 23, 2011 at 6:53 am (General) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I’m off! And that’s a reason to celebrate. Although I’m working tomorrow and that is not!

Okay, now you know I write urban fantasy, right? So some of it is pretend. Right? So we’re going to pretend. While writing my wolf series, I shared pictures of real wolves on an Easter egg hunt. They had fun eating the colorful eggs.

But can you imagine finding pictures of a jaguar eating Easter eggs?

So here’s as close to it as I could get. 🙂 Just squeeze your eyes tighter, click your heels twice and repeat after me, the stripes on this tiger are spots on a jaguar, and the rock he is inspecting is one huge Easter egg.

There. And if we concentrated hard enough…we’d have it!

The one already ate the whopping big Easter egg, didn’t share with the other, and he’s ticked off.

And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! But wait, everyone can see something different in a story. What do you see???

Happy Easter!!!!

Pets in Stories?

April 1, 2011 at 7:36 am (General) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


Have you ever read a story where a pet takes over a story? Or really adds to the story? Makes the characters more … human?

Who would have ever thought wolves would have pets?

But there are numerous cases where predator and prey live happily together. 🙂

These big sleepy canines are Irish Wolfhounds and they actually killed wolves, not the other way around. But in Heart of the Highland Wolf, they’re the MacNeill clan’s pets. Why?

Those who had more money could afford to have hunting dogs in days of old. In this case, the Irish used wolfhounds to unseat English knights from their horses.

Since the MacNeills started out in Ireland, that was the reason for their having the wolfhounds. But through the ages, they’ve always been the best of companions.

It’s already April 1st, no fooling, and June is just around the corner! Get ready for hunky Highland wolves!!! 🙂

Hope you have a delightful TGIF. I’m going to try and get some new tires on my car today before I have none on the highway…and have lunch with an author friend. But for now? It’s time to get back to big jungle cats!

So what kind of pet would a jaguar cat have???
