PERSONAL TARGET Blog Tour Highlights

It’s the final day of my virtual blog tour with Tasty Book Tours and I want to thank all the bloggers and fans who have helped spread the word about the release of PERSONAL TARGET on their blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media platforms. There were some lovely reviews and wide-ranging interviews that asked questions covering the waterfront from the serious writing query to the crazy fun. “If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?” Answer: My kindle with a solar battery, sunscreen, and my husband! (He’s not a thing, but he’s an absolute "must have" in a desert island situation for a variety of reasons.) Highlights from the reviews of PERSONAL TARGET included: “a fabulous book…gripping and addictive…I actually might need a support group, I am that addicted.” “…a fast-paced, action packed, edge of your seat read!

Enter to Win Print Set of THE RETURN OF BRODY MCBRIDE & FALLING FOR OWEN There's a new sheriff in Fallbrook … Meet Dylan McBride. Jessie Thompson had one hell of a week.

Should Heroes Use Endearments?

There was a discussion on a reader loop a couple of weeks ago about whether or not heroes should use endearments for their heroines. Some readers love this. Some readers don’t. For me, this choice is as individual as the heroes I’m writing about. Nicolas, one of the heroes in Sinful Rewards, doesn’t use endearments, at least not quickly and not in public. He’s a private man. He doesn’t talk much. He’s aware that not everyone wishes him well. He wouldn’t expose his feelings and his heroine’s safety by using an endearment. Hawke, on the other hand, calls Bee ‘love’ and ‘sweetheart’ during their very first conversation. He continues to sprinkle their subsequent discussions with these endearments, as illustrated in this snippet. *** “Expect more offers. I can be a persistent pain in the ass, especially when it comes to pretty little women with long brown hair and big brown...
