Stealing Adda by Tamara Leigh
WRITER’S BLOCK, NIBBLED NAILS, PLAGIARISM, OH MY! AND DID I MENTION ROMANCE? Life for Adda Sinclaire, New York Times best-selling author and historical romance writer extraordinaire, reads more like a country song than a breathless, bodice-bursting affair. For starters, she has no romance in her own life. That might have something to do with the fact that her husband—correction, ex-husband—ran off with Stick Woman, whom everyone knew would never be more than a mid-list author anyway. To add insult to injury (and another verse to the country song), her ex not only took their dog but gave it to Stick Woman. If that isn't enough, Adda has come down with a horrible case of writer's block, finds herself gifted with a Bible that is determined to speak to her, and is the unwitting target of a romance cover model's misdirected advances. Just when she catches her breath—and quite possibly the eye of a certain fabulously good-looking man (ahem…her new editor)—her arch-nemesis gives the pot one final stir.

Spy by Night by Jordan McCollum
After watching her parents’ marriage crash and burn, CIA operative Talia Reynolds doesn’t believe in “happily ever afters.” Besides, her job entails eighty-hour weeks, juggling a dozen covers and disguises, and tracking down a dangerous Russian spy ring. She hardly has time for romantic entanglements, even if she could let her guard down enough to get close to anyone.But all the rules she lives by could be broken when she meets aerospace engineer Danny Fluker.
Danny moved to Canada for a great job — and a chance to start over after a bad breakup. Dating definitely isn’t in his plans . . . until beautiful and enigmatic Talia throws a perfect storm right in his flight path. When he catches a glimpse of the real woman behind her façade, he has to get to know her better.
Talia has to find a Russian spymaster before he figures out she’s not who she claims, and failing to keep her two lives separate in the process could mean the death of more than just her budding relationship. Danny has to decide if a future with Talia — and facing the past — is worth the risk of getting hurt again. If they can break through the barriers keeping them apart (and avoid a major international catastrophe), they just might have a chance at being happy together.

Saving Grace by Michele Paige Holmes
From #2 Amazon Bestselling Historical Romance Author and Whitney Award Winner, Michele Paige Holmes, comes SAVING GRACE, a regency romance from the Hearthfire Romance series: 
After the death of her grandfather, the Duke of Salisbury, Grace Thatcher wants nothing more than to live quietly in the country with her younger siblings. Her father’s debts thwart those plans, and to protect her sister, Helen, Grace must marry a man of her father’s choosing. 
As each suitor proves less than desirable, Grace comes up with clever schemes, causing each to reject her. While staying at the mysterious Sutherland Hall, a middle-of-the-night mishap sends Grace into the arms of a stranger, Nicholas Sutherland—and provides inspiration for her grandest plan yet—one that will leave her reputation in tatters yet free both her and Helen from all possibility of marriage. 
Too late Grace regrets her rash actions when her father’s last choice, Mr. Samuel Preston, proves to be a gentleman and a friend. But Samuel is the sworn enemy of Nicholas Sutherland, the man responsible for her “ruin.” Now instead of being free, Grace is caught between two men—each with his own agenda.

While working at a wood camp in the Logan canyon during the winter of 1880, Caroline Simpson is forced to thwart the aggressive advances of Mr. Butch Larson, and in the process discovers that her long-time friend James has genuine affection for her. But as stubborn as Caroline is, she minimizes the emotions James has awakened in her, and it takes almost losing him to admit her true feelings.
 An Unexpected Proposal was introduced in the first volume of the bestselling and award-winning Timeless Romance Anthology series, Winter Collection:
Amazon #1 Bestselling *New Release* in Clean Romance, Top 10 in Regency Romance, Top 5 in Victorian Romance

Can life really turn on a dime, a missed bus—or a stuck pastry shop door?
Chloe Dillard's life has always been complicated. Her mother is a neurotic romance novelist and her boyfriend, Mathew, has been pressuring her to go "all the way".
But after The Worst Night of Her Life, Chloe escapes on her Senior Class trip to the swoon-worthy city of Paris which takes her mind off her troubles—temporarily. On the final leg of her dream trip, Chloe squeezes in one final run for a last-minute box of decadent pastries. Add a broken shop door, subtract a broken four-inch heel from her cute strappy sandals, and Chloe ends up one stuck girl on the bakery shop floor with a sprained ankle.
Rescued by the shop owner’s dreamy son with chocolate-syrup eyes, the beautiful city of Paris suddenly becomes Chloe’s personal secret adventure. And even though Jean-Paul, the oh-so-kind La Patisserie shop boy is the gentlemanly guy Chloe has always dreamed of, even he has a girlfriend.
The police are tracking her down as a run-away, Mom’s having a nervous breakdown over her daughter’s “disappearance”, and Chloe’s just trying to have a Happily-Ever-After even as her dreams with Matt are swirling down the drain.
What’s a girl to do in the most romantic city in the world?

On the Lighter Side

Here are five fun facts about Lucy and her Echo Ridge story:
  1. She has naturally curly hair. You wouldn't know it from her author photo-but her curl is something to reckon with.
  2. She hides York Peppermint Patties in her desk drawer.
  3. She sews her own dresses and skirts. And they are so cute too!
  4. Her 7 year old can ski better than she can--but she'll keep trying.
  5. She's a compulsive baker.

Snippet from The Candy Counter Heiress

Here's a sneak peak and Lucy's book, The Candy Counter Heiress which I absolutely loved!

Reese had a hard time holding up her end of the kiss because she couldn’t stop smiling. And what woman wouldn’t smile when she felt irresistible? Andy did that for her. Not just by kissing her, but by saying the words she needed to hear.

Robyn, a friend and Kenworth’s employee walked by and whistled, and then Andy was smiling as big as she was. “Okay. I’m really going this time.” He brushed his lips across her cheek but didn’t let go of her.

“You’d better.” Reese hooked her hands together behind his neck and pulled him in for another tummy- sizzler kiss.

“I’m headed for the door,” said Andy, never releasing his hold.

“Don’t forget your tie,” replied Reese, hanging on just as tight and returning his kisses between words.

The bell sounded, signaling the opening of the store.

Reese slid her hands down Andy’s neck and chest. She let them rest there for several seconds, enjoying the feel of his chest against her palms, before gently pushing him back, if only so she could catch her breath.

Andy allowed her to put a few inches between them. “Sorry,” he said, though his grin didn’t look at all apologetic or chagrined for instigating the most scandalous PDA Kenworth’s had seen in quite some time. Pressing his lips to her forehead, he pulled his arms back and started walking away backwards. “I’m going to buy this tie.” He held up the red one.

Reese shook her head. “Nope.”

Andy looked down and switched hands. “This tie. And then I have a meeting, and you’re closing tonight and working tomorrow morning, so I will see you at six at your apartment.”

“I’ll be ready.” Oh boy, would she be ready. Andy wasn’t going to know what hit him.

5 Random Facts about Lucy McConnell:
  1. She has naturally curly hair.
  2. She hides York Peppermint Patties in her desk drawer.
  3. She sews her own dresses and skirts.
  4. Her 7 year old can ski better than she can--but she'll keep trying.
  5. She's a compulsive baker.

Using unexpected supplies

Hello crafty people!
It's been a long time since I've posted a tutorial,
but here I am to show you an unexpected supply
that I used for stamping a background.
I was organizing and cleaning out some things
at the studio where I do a lot of my crafting.
I came across quite a bit of Velcro. 
The problem was that it was only one side of the Velcro,
I had used the other side for a project, so here I was with
this long strip of one side of Velcro.
I said "Guess I don't need to save this." and went to throw it
into my garbage bag.
My friend, thinking she was being funny, said
"Oh can't you use that for stamping or something?"
Fully knowing that I hate throwing something away
that is perfectly good.
Of course, I said "Great idea" and didn't throw it away.
Here's what I did with it.
I inked up the Velcro with some green ink.
Then I pressed it to a piece of white card stock,
and here's what I got.
I continued that process with the green ink and 
a coral ink to make stripes on the entire piece of card stock.
I tried a few different color combinations.
The first one I made is my least favorite.
I think I just pressed harder in some areas than others,
but once I got the hang of it, I really loved the results.
If you pop over to my blog,
you can see what I did with these backgrounds.
Well, 3 of them, I haven't done anything with that 
first one yet.
Thanks for stopping by today,
I hope this inspires you to think outside the box
and to use some unexpected supplies in your crafting.

Until next time, have fun crafting!
