Just Desserts!

Vicki Batman, who creates feisty, mischievous, playful characters, has just released an anthology of sweet, sometimes funny, and heart-warming short stories, Just Desserts And Other Stories.

For me, with its fast pace and quick stories, this is a perfect read for the bus ride home from the "day job." Others might find it a great beach read. Sit back, and take a peek at what's beneath the book cover!

From sassy writer Vicki Batman comes eleven very short tales with a dash of humor.

Story Blurb: 

Love blossoms in the small town of Sommerville in these clean and wholesome, heart-warming short tales, filled with fun and forever possibilities.

Included are:

Bug Stuff ~ An accountant unites with his co-worker to exterminate a pesky adversary.

Just Desserts ~ A political dinner gone disastrous brings together a reluctant attendee and her handsome seat-mate.

With This Ring ~ When a wife forgets the all-important little black dress, the evening turns into something utterly unforgettable.

Good Girls Finish First ~ When men friends are challenged to fix breakfast if they lose a race, one woman leads the pack and discovers finishing first can lead to romance.

Ouch ~ Who knew a yoga class would be so dangerous...and romantic?

Man Theory ~ When a geeky co-worker espouses his theory on love, a friend risks her heart.

Tommy and the Teacher ~ A young boy steals from the school’s book fair causing interesting possibilities to arise.

Absolutely Positively Lost ~ Helping a map-challenged young man find his way is truly serendipitous.

The Little Birdie Who ~ A new town, a new friend, a new beginning. Who would have thought a little bird could bring two people together?

Check Her Out ~ It’s a sticky situation, especially between a store manager and Auntie Caren when her nephew must pay for the gum he stole.

Remembering Our Nation's First Heroes...

A few weeks ago I made a visit to the Museum of the American Revolution in Philly's Old City. Aside from being an awesome retelling of America's struggle for independence, it also served as a reminder of the sacrifices made by the men and women who fought for liberty.

An inadequately equipped, ill-prepared group who took on a mission that many believed would not succeed. For the men who enlisted, there were never enough clothes, blankets, or supplies. More that 30,000 American soldiers died, not just from battle, but from accidents and disease.

The museum with its collections of artifacts, displays, and documents tells the story of the heroes who through their blood, sweat, and tears created our nation. 

On this Memorial Day, let us remember those warriors who served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Men, and in lesser known cases women, who sacrificed their lives in order to create a new country.

Have a peaceful holiday, and a safe week, Everyone!

Still Time for Cruising For Love...

One of Crimson Romance's talents was taking past releases with a common theme, reinventing them, and releasing the novels in a bundle with  a really cool name, for a limited time, at a special price.

My novel, Magic Moment, was part of a collection released on January 1st titled Cruising for Love: 4 Ship-Shape Romances. Also part of the group were Little White Lies, Romancing the Seas, and Reach for Tomorrow. Like Magic Moment, these stories involved boats, intrigue, the ocean, and sensual romance.

Sadly, as with all Crimson Bundles, Cruising for Love will be retired. Only a few weeks remain to grab four fantastic e-reads for the special price of $2.99. Take advantage, and check it out!

It has been an honor to share the stage with R.C. Matthews, Cait O'Sullivan, and Peggy Gaddis. Enjoy Cruising for Love, and I look forward to future reads from these fantastic authors.


Set a course for adventure with these four couples as they take to the high seas only to find new romance.

Little White Lies: (R. C. Matthews)

Attorney Madalyn Russell may have dumped her fiancé at the altar, but no way is she rejecting the honeymoon cruise. Unfortunately, she didn’t cancel the newlywed package, and now she’s stuck as a single in a lovebird world. That is, until a devilishly handsome man with a secret, Royce Spencer, offers a deliciously indecent proposal: He’ll pose as her husband in exchange for companionship during the cruise. She can’t deny their attraction, but will their little white lies make too many waves when Royce’s past finally catches up with him?

Romancing the Seas: (Cait O’ Sullivan)

When a relationship gone bad sinks sous-chef Pippa Renshaw’s plans, she swaps her job in a prestigious London restaurant to become the head chef on a cruise ship sailing around New Zealand. It’s a great escape plan until a mix-up means she has to share a suite with her new boss, the delectable Jonathon Eagleton, who is no happier about the circumstances. These two can handle the simmer… but when the heat turns up, is it a recipe for true love?

Reach for Tomorrow: (Peggy Gaddis)

Nurse Claire Frazier was devoted to her fiancé, until he threw that love back in her face. Disillusioned and burning with shame, she books passage on a world cruise, along with an intriguing collection of fellow passengers: an attractive second officer, a detective, and a confidence artist. Is love waiting once again at the next port of call?

Magic Moment: (Angela Adams)

Shortly after the FBI brings in Laura Roberts for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she keeps the books, a gang of thugs snatch her off the street. Chase Donovan boarded his boat intending to spend a few peaceful days getting his head together, but instead he finds trouble when he interrupts two men assaulting a woman in his cabin. What’s more, they claim his father told them to do it. Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they put their mutual attraction and time on his yacht to work to discover the truth before someone dies?

Remembering Those High School Classics!

One of the deeds I enjoy doing in my neighborhood is proofreading, sometimes tutoring, several of my high school neighbors when they have a research or Literature assignment (the subject we called "English/Composition" back in my day, our School District now refers to as "Language Arts") to complete.

Recently, one of my neighbors, a freshman, knocked on my door with a copy  of the book and a paper for The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. My freshman friend, not only had a great paper, but I was reminded how Fitzgerald's read had been one of my own favorites in high school.

Not only did I decide to revisit Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, but started a list of those High-School-Required-Reads that I so admired.

Here are the top three!

The Great Gatsby

The story of wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for married Daisy Buchanan.

Buy Links:

Jane Eyre

Follow the encounters and passions of our heroine, Jane, including her love for the mysterious Mr. Rochester.

Buy Links:

To Kill a Mockingbird

A mesmerizing story seen through the eyes of a young girl as her lawyer father defends a black man wrongly accused of a horrible crime.
