    Tis the season to satisfy your holiday desires with this festive trio of sexy stories…

    A GIFT OF LOVE Donna Hill

    Drama professor Traci Long spends her free time at the CoffeeMate café, pursuing her true passion—writing her own plays. Meanwhile, sexy barista Noah Jefferson is doing his best to distract her. But once they get involved, past betrayals make Traci wary. She’s right that Noah is keeping something from her—but it might be something that will make this Christmas as sweet as a rave review—and steamier than her favorite chai latté…

    HOLIDAY SPICE Farrah Rochon

    A Christmas-time tragedy took photographer Miranda Lawson’s holiday spirit with it. Since then, she’s traveled the world, determined to outrun her demons. This year she’s off to Istanbul. But the scenery isn’t the only gorgeous site she spots through her camera lens….Kyle Daniels loves Christmas, but he’s looking for escape too—and soon he and Miranda find it in each other’s arms. Yet their connection doesn’t end there. Maybe staying put isn’t such a bad idea after all—especially when there’s someone to celebrate with…


    Unstoppable real-estate developer Ross Montgomery is under orders to get some holiday R&R. A cruise to Miami on his yacht, “The Serenity,” is the perfect place to start—especially when he meets his new personal chef, Essie Bradford. Between her calming presence, her amazing food, and her delectable beauty, Ross just might develop a taste for the good life. And when the two discover they have a lot in common—including an irresistible attraction—the next course may be a spicy New Year…

    Goodbye 2015… Hello 2016… my year in GIFs

    So it’s New Year’s Eve and I’m in the basement on a crazy deadline, stress of my own making really, as I type this.

    I’m happy to have silence in my house for a moment and realizing that I have not posted diddly on this blog in way too long. Sorry about that. I take full responsibility. For all my planning balls are dropping left and right. Speaking of, I look to my left and dust bunnies laugh in my face. Side-eye to you dust bunnies. I laugh right back. No intimidation here.

    huh face

    But back to reason for this post. Since it’s the year end everyone is doing recaps and best of lists and all that so I thought I’d do a recap of my own… of sorts.

    Here is a recap of my 2015 in GIFS since I’m crazy behind schedule and I have no real words to spare.

    Oh and one resolution… to knit more. I really failed on that one last year (that and dusting, but I’m not resolving that- no fun). So knitting at least a row a week. 1 a week that’s 52. Small but so doable. I like it.

    Onto the year in review…

    January – optimistic and hopeful.

    im ready

    February – breathing through it.

    Un cool Luann

    March – trying to disguise the stress.

    No one can notice right?


    April – Whoo Hoo! A deal!

    Did this really happen?


    happy dance

    May – Twin A graduated Whee!!!

    clap 1

    June – Another Deal! Write, Woman Write!

    dance gif 2

    July – RWA National in the HOUSE!!!

    party 1

    August –

    Uh oh, How am I supposed to keep up with this life?

    keep up kim

    September – Seriously, this is getting nuts.

    bad idea

    October –

    No one will noticed as long as my makeup is fierce. Right?


    November – Maybe I’ll just sleep.

    tired 1

    December – A plan. That’s the ticket I just need a good plan.  There’s always next year.

    Cookie 2

    Cheers! Let’s re-boot and give it another go!

    leo cheers

    Happy New Year!

    Dreams Always Matter… #WeNeedDiverseRomance

    Happy Martin Luther King Day here in the US!

    I always think of this as a day of reflection and not just a day of sales or a day off from work. I’m sure it helps that my children share a birthday with the great Dr. King which I always thought was a great honor and never missed an opportunity to remind them of that. They know the history and how far we have and sadly how far we still have to go. Recently, with the passing of my Nana, piggy backing on the powerful and important #WeNeedDiverse books hashtag, I started the #WeNeedDiverseRomance hashtag attempting to honor Nana’s love of romance and highlight the lack of diversity in the genre. Yes, we even have a long way to go when it comes to publishing and getting equal representation when it comes to our stories of happily ever after. And this is me with this hashtag hoping in some way to bring awareness and enact a bit of change to help balance the scales. It may be a small dream but it’s a DREAM all the same.



    And if we have learned anything from Dr. King it’s that Dreams Always Matter.
