Word from the Author:
I do regular giveaways including a Kindle for every 250 people who join (aka "Like) my Facebook author page: and I'd LOVE for word to spread about that. We have a lot of fun there as I ask for frequent reader input on current books, with helpers being mentioned in the acknowledgements and fun stuff like that.


A Doctor’s Vow.

When he fled Eagle Point years ago, former air force trauma surgeon Mitch Wellington left only broken dreams behind. Now he’s back with a new dream—opening a trauma center in the rural area and saving lives. He hopes to hire the quick-thinking nurse who impressed him during an emergency. But Lauren Bates lost her faith and doesn’t believe she deserves to help anyone. Mitch knows firsthand what loss feels like. And it’ll take all his devotion to show Lauren that sometimes the best medicine is a combination of faith, community—and love.

Eagle Point Emergency: Saving lives—and losing their hearts—in a small Illinois town.

I have not read a Harlequin Romance for I'm not sure how long, years.  But this book was a rather fun, very quick read.  The characters were quite interesting, you can't help but fall in love with Lem, Lauren's grandfather, he's just an 'old coot' who wants everything to work out his way, it's up to you to read the book and find out.  This is a seriously easy, quick read, a nice diversion from my usual.

Book Review: The Director's Cut


The one thing she can't direct is her heart.
Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She's the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on the set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. Life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could get other people to behave as well as her stars do! When she starts to have feelings for handsome cameraman Jason Harris--with whom she's been butting heads for months--it's enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life--and love--as it comes?

Full of the humor and crazy family dynamics Janice Thompson fans have come to love, this colorful story gives you an inside look at Hollywood and a healthy dose of romance. If you want more of Bella, DJ, Brock Benson, and other favorite characters from Janice Thompson, you'll love the Backstage Pass series.

Tia Morales seems to be one tightly wired woman, is it her make-up, or is there a deeper reason?  There's no missing the fact that's she's an excellent director, on the set, but in real life?  Not quite so much.

The characters and plot reminded me a lot of Janice's book, Stars Collide, so that did bother me a bit, I would have liked to see a bit more originality, but other than that, this was an entertaining read.
