She has always believed that romance and humor go hand in hand. Love can conquer all and as Mark Twain said, “Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.” Combining the two, she hopes she gives her readers a thrilling love story, filled with chuckles along the way, and a happily ever after finish.

I love Christmas. As many of you know, I grew up in the Air Force as a Brat and because of that, I lived in Germany for a huge chunk of my childhood. The first Christmas I really remember was there, and boy do the Germans know how to do Christmas right. So, no matter where we are now, whether we are in picturesque Virginia with snow on the ground or we go to the beach in Hawaii, depending on where we are stationed, I get into Christmas. One of the joys I have outside of my family, is movies. I LOVE to spend a day vegging and that is definitely true around Christmas. Here are my top five Christmas movies:
5. Ghostbusters- okay, this isn't Christmas, but years ago, HBO used to have a secret premiere on Christmas Eve and I remember staying up and watching this one.
|Who you gonna call?|
|Vermont should be beautiful this time|
of year, with all that snow.
|Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.|
|Is it real coffee or some Scandanavian|
|Oh my god! I shot my eye out!|
What a great collection of movies. What's YOUR favorite/must watch movie during the holidays?
THE DEVIL IN WINTER:
A devil's bargainWhere To Buy: Amazon | Kindle | B&N | Nook | Book Depository
Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!
Sebastian's reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden's good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.
But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts -- which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions...or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.
