Titanic Tea Party
by Deeanne Gist

I attended my first tea party in a cast off bridesmaid dress that was a bazillion sizes too big for me. My guests—Teddy the bear, a stuffed Lost Boy from Peter Pan, a white stuffed dog named Pongo and Baby the doll—came dressed for the occasion. I poured tea(aka colored water) from a miniature china teapot into teenincy cups which held about three raindrops each. We ate crumpets (aka Easy Bake Oven delectables) and gossiped about Clarissa—my big sister’s doll who had long platinum hair that spilled over her shoulders in ringlets. (I wasn’t allowed to touch her, so the conversation was quite vicious.)

Now, cough-cough-years later, I get to host another tea party. But this time around, my dress will fit (assuming I don’t eat too many brownies between now and then), the tea will be real, my refreshments will be cooked by a former Iron Chef and my guests will be YOU, along with some of our favorite historical authors. (Have I mentioned Teresa Medeiros, Kat Martin, Elizabeth Hoyt, Alexandra Ivy, Rebecca Forster … and more, more, more?)

In honor of the Titanic’s 100-year anniversary, our tea will take on a Titanic theme: Fabulous dresses. Outrageous hats. Tasty tea. Refreshments made from authentic Titanic recipes. And an opulent boat minus the seasickness.

We’ll play games with the authors, have giveaways and learn whether our pinkie goes up or down when sipping tea. We’ll meet the captain, see the authors in Edwardian costumes, and each of us will take on a specific Titanic passenger persona. At the end of the tea, you’ll find out if you survived or not.

So, come in costume … wear a hat … or come as you are, but don’t delay in signing up for the Titanic Tea, because space is limited and last year, our event sold out! See you there!

LOVE ON THE LINE:
Is Her Curiosity Dialing Up Love--Or A Whole Mess of Trouble?

Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man's world ... which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder.

Dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears though. He's a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stakeout puts Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.
