Cynthia d’Alba does the Texas Two Step

Question Mark 3
If anyone who has read Texas Tangle and Tangled Past has realized there’s a character who appears in both of them… (Just a sign how my brain wanders off on random tangents.)  

Just wondering…

Today is Author’s Choice of Snippet … Since today is my eldest son’s birthday, I tried to find something relevant, but I don’t have any birthdays in my books. Something I may have to rectify in future books. So I decided to make it Readers’ choice and put a call […]

Snippet Saturday: Your choice

It’s Guitar Hero’s 27th birthday today. When we went out to buy his birthday cake of choice (a Dairy Queen ice cream cake), we asked him if he wanted anything written on it. He replied in his usual droll fashion: “How about Happy Birthday, Princess.” So…as is usual for this […]

Happy Birthday “Princess”

Okay, get your mind out of the gutters! Or perhaps I should tell you to put your mind in your garden for a few minutes while we chat. I’m embarking on a huge gardening project–a 26 foot medicine wheel garden–which has taken me a couple of years of planning and […]

His lips hovered centimeters above hers, […]

Cast your vote!

I think each of us defines what is romantic differently. I chose today’s Snippet because there are two different types of romance going on — Nate is observing the unspoken ways Jackson tells his wife Sarah that he loves her, and Nate himself is trying to show Sarah he loves […]

Snippet Saturday: Isn’t it Romantic?

Yes, I’m back neck-deep in edits again, so while I’m busy fixing up all my punctuation and grammar errors, I thought I’d share a recipe my mom just sent me for split pea soup. In the email she noted some changes she’d made over the years to make it her […]

Please welcome today’s guest blogger, Leslie Dicken. (I keep wanting to put an S on the end of her name; I guess I keep thinking Charles Dickens.) Leslie writes HOT historical romances for Samhain and also for Harlequin’s Spice Briefs. This week she’s ventured into the Steampunk realm with her […]

Leslie Dicken: She’s got Steam Heat

Wow, it’s been an incredibly busy — and productive — week for me.  Edits done and sent back to one editor, a synopsis written and submitted to another. Seamus and all his antics dealt with, including his puppy classes and training. To top off a really good week, I had […]
