Happy 4th and Happy Belated Canada Day!

Good afternoon, everyone! I realize that most of you will be celebrating, and busy with family or friends rather than reading this, so I will keep this short and sweet.

As all of you probably know, I am Canadian, living on the West Coast of Canada. You may also know that on Wednesday (July 1st) we celebrated Canada Day. I wanted to wish my fellow Canadians a great big Happy Canada Day!

As today is July 4th, I also wanted to wish my American friends, family, and readers a very Happy July 4th!

4th-July

I hope you all have a safe and joyful weekend. Enjoy your fireworks, BBQs, and fun in the sun!

Thank you so much for reading! Happy Saturday!

Author Update!

Good morning, blog readers! I must once more apologize for my absence. I’ve been neck-deep in my editing, which is due for re-submission in just over one week. I’ve still got a long way to go, so my days will be consumed with that, when I’m not taking care of the kids.

I’ve got to say a HUGE thank-you to my Mom for coming over and watching the kids for me, and to my husband who has been taking on both the Mom and Dad role over the weekends. You guys are the greatest!

On another note, I’ve also been participating in the Twitter pitch events (and am now a part of the Pandamoon acquisitions team), so I’ve been reading submissions in the evenings. It’s so much fun!

Guess what? I’ve got another blog! I’m participating in Pandamoon Publishing’s group blog! It’s a collection of posts from not just the authors, but some editors, marketing members, and more. I post there on Fridays. Please, come have a look! My last post, This Author’s Big Secret, was posted just this past Friday. And yes, I reveal a big secret.

Thank you all so much for reading! Happy Monday!

One Night With A Prince – by Sabrina Jeffries – Review

One Night with a Prince (Royal Brotherhood, #3)One Night with a Prince by Sabrina Jeffries
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have never once been disappointed in any of Sabrina Jeffries’ books, and One Night with a Prince is no different. In fact, since the first time I read it, it remains steadfastly my favourite historical romance novel ever. This is the twelfth time I’ve read One Night with a Prince, with the intention of reading it again in the near future.

Gavin Byrne is a charming rogue with a scarring past and Christabel is his perfect match, in wits and in every romantic sense. Jeffries wrote their exchanges to be page-turners; I continuously find myself anxious to see what would happen with them on the next page.

I highly recommend this novel, and any of Sabrina Jeffries’ work!

Absence Apology and Author Update

Good evening, lovely blog readers! I’m here to offer my profound apologies for being absent of late. Good gravy, it’s been a month since my last blog! I could give you all the story of the kids’ colds, the big life events, birthdays, vacations, etc. and while they would all be true, they are not good enough reasons for being remiss in my posts. For that, I am sorry.

Alas, here I am attempting to make amends. I will do my utmost to keep up with a minimum of one post per week. Some might be short, some might be lengthy, but I will always do my best to post.

As for an author update, I have completed my short story and submitted it to my publisher. I am expecting the first round of editing notes for Love’s Misadventure soon, which is exciting! Things are progressing, which feels great. I’ll post updates as soon as I can.

On the topic of future blog posts, I have plenty of ideas that I’m prepared to talk about, and most are fun with photos, so please keep in touch!

Thank you all so much for reading! You’re the best!
Happy Tuesday!

Sneak Peek of my Short Story

Good morning, blog readers! If you follow my Facebook page, you would have seen that I’ve put aside my work for the next novel in my series in favour of writing a short story. It’s to eventually go in an anthology with some of my fellow Pandas (authors) from Pandamoon Publishing.

The short story is a lusty Regency tale of a couple meeting at a masquerade.

My hero is a thirty-three year old Canada-migrated Englishman named Benjamin Laverick, the Earl of Huntsford. My heroine is a twenty-six year old widow named Hannah Fitton, the Dowager Viscountess of Edenthorpe.

Also, if you follow me on Facebook, you will have already seen the sneak peek that I revealed yesterday. But since I’m sure that most of you haven’t visited my FB page, here is the sneak peek, just for you! :

{“What is your name?” Ben blurted, the words rumbling from deep within him.

The Beauty’s grin widened and her eyes gleamed with mischief as she shook one finger at him. “Ah-ah. You mustn’t break the rules of the masque.”

He matched her grin. “You follow the rules, do you, madam?”

She cast her gaze down briefly in mock modesty before returning – nay, burning – into his once more. “The rules of the masque, indeed, must always be followed, sir. However…” she hesitated and his heart faltered, “…the rules of society? Most assuredly not.”

Ben almost crowed.}

And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen! I hope you enjoyed it!

Thank you so much for reading! Happy Thursday!
