THE COWBOY AND THE VIRTUOUS WIDOW
Clint Hayworth had returned to the Double H to find his father's too-young-attractive widow in charge. The woman had to be a gold digger - so why couldn't Clint stop thinking about her?
Tess Morgan-Hayworth couldn't sit by and watch the ranch be destroyed. It was the only place she'd ever felt safe. So she would have to face up to this stubborn, hardheaded, gorgeous Texan, and tame him...
But Tess wasn't sure she could hold out against the sexy cowboy for long!
Well, what do you think of the cover? The cowboy's not half bad, but the Double H in the background is the wealthiest ranch in the state! I wondered about that shack, but far beyond the cover, I hope readers like the story that deals not only with a strong passionate romance and lots of sizzling sexual tension but powerful issues that females had to - and still- face every single day.
Available on Eharlequin in February and in bookstores in March!
And if you liked Bodine's Bounty, it's up for the Cataromance Best Category Romance of 2007. It's coming in a close second. Please take a moment to cast your votes HERE. Thanks!!
Happy Monday everyone!

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (written by kids)
No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.-- Kristen, age 10

This above picture, sort of wraps up my sentiments in a nutshell. There's a sense of wonder and awe, seeing life through Giselle's eyes.
National Treasure - Book of Secrets was just plain fun. You really have to suspend your disbelief in this movie, but if you're looking for an escape into adventure with lots of stunts and inspiring sets, this is a great movie. Though I did have to look at my husband with a hopeless gesture that said, "Oh, come on," a few times, since this plot made breaking into the White House and kidnapping the president, seem effortless - I still enjoyed it. Nicolas Cage can do no wrong. :)

Can you believe it's 2008 already? It's hard to imagine when I think about all the past hoopla about the millenium. The anticipation and worry and excitement and now 8 years have passed since then.
Well, I for one do have New Years Resolutions. Since I'm a goal-setter, it's easier for me to keep them. In another blog, I'd asked about resolutions and spoke of some ways people can stick to them, but ultimately many people just don't like making them. They feel they are setting themselves up to fail.
You don't think you'll stick to them, so why try?
My own philosphy is that if I don't try, then I can't complain later on. I'd rather just try. Thus, for me, I like to set mental resolutions. This doesn't happen just on January 1st, but during the entire course of the year for me.
Here are a few of mine. More will come later, I'm sure.
1. Keep exercising and try to do it more often. (this is the most popular by far, but a good one)
2. Keep eating healthy. (we do - we aren't fast-food eaters and I'm learning to enjoy making inventive salads)
3. Keep one step ahead of my deadlines. (this requires a lot of dedication and my butt in the computer chair)
4. Try to spend more time away from the computer. (it's 11:47 am and I haven't had breakfast yet - and is in direct contrast with #3)
5. Enjoy every second of planning our daughter's wedding. ( a no-brainer - I'm very excited)
6. Try to spend more time with friends ( they are very important in my life)
7. Play my own version of The Biggest Loser ( try to lose weight each week along with the contestants - for fun and because I'd like to shave off 15 lbs before the wedding!)
I'm hoping to keep all of these thru the year, but if I falter, I'll keep trying.
What about you?
