Giveaway alert!

Just popping in to say that I have a giveaway running on Goodreads right now for my May release, Pregnant by the Colton Cowboy!  Head on over and enter for your chance to win!

Here's the back cover blurb:

A cowboy puts his life on the line for the woman expecting his child in The Coltons of Shadow Creek! 

Determined to steer clear of the horrors his villainous mother brought on his family, rancher Thorne Colton keeps to himself. That means resisting Maggie Lowell. The last time he succumbed, passion took control. But when an explosion nearly claims her life, Thorne discovers their night together yielded more than sizzling memories. 

Pregnant and under Thorne's protection in Shadow Creek, Maggie isn't sure where the bigger threat lies. Out in the open, she's a killer's target. On his ranch, she's in close quarters with the man who's driven to keep her and their child safe but broke her heart once and might do it again…


Have a good weekend!

Celebrate the Small Things -- Catching up edition


Happy Friday!  It's been a pretty standard week here, but I'm glad we've made it to Friday.  We don't really have any big weekend plans--we're having a game lunch with friends on Sunday, which is always fun.  I recently bought the game Organ Attack and have been looking forward to trying it out.
In other news, I finally got the official cover for my July release (Her Lieutenant Protector) and just bought new bookmarks and excerpt brochures that I'm going to take to the Desert Dreams conference in June. I'm really looking forward to this conference, and I hope the swag looks nice!  I'll post pictures when I get it.

What are you up to this weekend?  Any fun plans?

If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week.

Celebrate the Small Things - Birthday edition!


Hello, everyone!  It's my birthday--woo hoo!  Unfortunately, I have to work today (ugh, adulting!) but I'm looking forward to dinner tonight and frozen custard for dessert.  My Mom wanted to make me a birthday cake, but I'm trying to cut back on my sugar and I know if I have a cake in my fridge I will eat it all.  I'd hate to waste food, you know. ;)

We have a busy weekend planned.  I'm getting my nails done with Mom on Saturday afternoon, and Saturday night Mister and I are going over to a friend's house for game night, which is always a fun time.  Then it's the symphony on Sunday for our dose of culture.  I'm looking forward to it all!

Before I go, I'm hosting a giveaway over at Get Lost in a Story--two signed books and a gift card to Starbucks.  Head on over and enter for your chance to win!  It runs through Sunday.

What are you doing this weekend?  Any fun plans?

Celebrate the Small Things - Return to normal edition


Hello, everyone!  When I last posted two weeks ago, Mister and I had planned to go see a movie to celebrate his birthday.  Things did not go quite as planned.  We had just sat down at the restaurant when my Mom called with the news that Little Roo was throwing up.  Needless to say, we canceled our plans and rushed home.  Fortunately, she made a fast recovery.  I wish I could say the same.  I managed to come down with a stomach bug, and I got so dehydrated I wound up in the ER.  I'm on the mend now, but I have a collection of bruises to show for my needle sticks. The experience was a bit scary, but I'm grateful the issue wasn't more serious.

Now that we're all healthy, Mister and I are going to try this movie thing again.  Here's hoping we can make it work this time!

Celebrate the Small Things - This and That edition


Welcome, Friday!  Good to see you again! :)

This week, I'm celebrating Mister's birthday.  He turned *mumblemumble* on the 16th.  He had to work that day (part of the curse of being an adult), but I made his favorite dinner and we are going out to lunch and to see a movie on Sunday, so that will be fun.

Mom and I are going to get our nails done on Saturday afternoon.  I always enjoy getting to spend time with her, and it's nice to have pretty hands as well. I'm still debating on what color polish to get--right now, I've got a glittery pink which is fun, but I'm thinking about a light blue to change things up a bit.  What's your go-to nail color?

What are you up to this weekend?  Any fun plans?  Please share!

Also, you can still enter the Secret Valentine's giveaway I'm running over on Goodreads!

Celebrate the Small Things - Arts and Crafts edition


Happy Friday!  How was your week?  Hopefully you have lots of little things to celebrate.

This week, I'm excited about spending time with some friends on Saturday afternoon.  Mister and I are going on a double date with some good friends to one of those painting with wine places, and it should be a lot of fun.

In other news, I am now hooked on BBC crime dramas.  Mister and I binged the first 3 seasons of Sherlock, and I'm on pins and needles waiting for the latest season to come out on DVD (no spoilers, please!)  We're passing the time watching Luther--we just started season 3 of that show.  Any suggestions on what to watch once we finish Luther?

Just so you know, I'm running a giveaway over on Happily Ever After Thoughts through Sunday.  Head over and enter for your chance to win one of three copies of my latest book, Dr. Do or Die.

Hope you have a great weekend!  Any exciting plans?

Celebrate the Small Things - Social Butterfly edition


Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you've all had a good week!

I have lots of plans this weekend, which is a bit outside the norm.  Usually we have lazy days, but that won't be the case this week.

On Saturday, I'm participating in the North Richland Hills Library's first ever Local Author Festival as part of their Year of the Book celebrations!  I'll have a table set up in the lobby to sell books, and I'll be speaking from 12-12:10 pm. If you are in the DFW area, please consider stopping by--there's loads of other authors participating, and the library has some really fun events planned!

On Sunday and Monday, I'll be blogging at Just Romantic Suspense and on Monday I'll also be over at Get Lost in a Story.  I'm giving away copies of Dr. Do or Die at both sites, so please stop by for your chance to win!

What are your weekend plans?  I hope you have fun, whatever you wind up doing!

Celebrate the Small Things - New Year edition


Happy New Year!  How has the first week of 2017 treated you?  Well, I hope.

Do any of you make resolutions?  I made a couple of goals for the new year, and I'd love to hear about yours!

One of my goals is to cook more meals at home.  I generally cook 3-4 dinners a week, but some weeks are busier than others and we wind up doing take-out or ordering pizza more often than I'd like.  It gets expensive, and it's not the healthiest for us.  So this year, I'm going to try to cook 6-7 dinners per week, and to eat more lunches at home as well.  I know we're only 6 days in, but so far, I've cooked all week.  I drew up a meal plan on Saturday, which made my grocery shopping a lot easier.  It's also nice to know what I'm going to make each day, as it takes a little pressure off when it's time to start preparing dinner.  I was already a big fan of using my crock pot, and I know it's really going to get a workout this year!

It's very cold here (for Texas, that is), and it's supposed to stay that way all weekend.  Mister and I have started watching the new Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, so I imagine we'll spend some time on the couch binge watching the second and third seasons (yay for library DVD check-out!).  I know we're late to the party on that show, but we're really enjoying it and it's nice to have a pile of episodes to watch so we don't have to wait for new ones to come out.

What are your weekend plans?  Anything exciting going on in your neck of the woods?  Thanks to everyone for your patience with my blogging hiatus--posting more frequently is another of my goals, so I hope you'll keep me accountable!

Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and productive 2017!

Mister and I are headed to the movies today, for the first time in what feels like forever.  We're off to see Assassin's Creed, because he likes video games and I like Michael Fassbender :)  Hopefully it will be entertaining, but if not, I love me some movie theater popcorn, so I'll be happy either way.

How are you celebrating the new year?  If you're looking for something to read, my latest book, Dr. Do or Die releases in digital format today!  I hope you'll check it out!

Two doctors are on thin ice as they race to save the world from a deadly disease. 
Epidemic researcher Dr. Avery Thatcher has studied countless illnesses…but nothing prepares her for what she finds at a remote Antarctic base: the man she never wanted to see again and a mysterious ailment ravaging inhabitants. Avery will do whatever it takes to discover the illness's cause, and she vows to keep her heartbreaking history with Dr. Grant Jones in the past—even if reignited passion brings them dangerously close. 
For Grant, ending this outbreak and regaining Avery's trust are vital. As their hunt to contain a lethal pathogen escalates, he'll put everything on the line to avert disaster. But will another insidious threat stop them both cold?
