Just Romance Me- Sizzling Summer Blog Post

Sizzling Summer

I can’t believe it’s already August. Seem’s like Summer has just flown by. It saddens me to see the School Supplies stocking department stores. ūüė¶

I’ve been working on a new novel set in a Steampunk World – which I’m totally loving.

I’m also a huge fan of Kristen Callahan’s Darkest London Series, as well as Bec McMaster’s Steampunk London series and have found them to be great summer reading.

I tend to use Summer as my exploratory reading phase for both fiction and non-fiction.

So what wonderful stories have you found this summer?


Halloween Hop!

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a little Halloween Movie Monsters.


Van Helsing

Dorian Grey

Vampires & Werewolves - oh my!

I’m a huge fan of paranormal movies and especially classic monsters.¬† I’m not as big on the slasher movies…eww.¬†¬† Leave a comment on you’re¬†favorite type of Halloween movies for a chance to win one of my backlist books.

Happy Halloween – It’s Steamy!

If you are just joining us, we started our Blog Tour here:


So last year I went with a Werewolves vs. Vampires theme.  It remains a great debate with no clear winner. This year РSteampunk !

I’m not sure if Steampunk is for everyone but as of late, it has really captured my writer’s imagination.¬† I find the photography stimulating in it’s beauty, darkness and cold metals with luxurious fabrics.¬† It just sounds SEXY.¬†

So are you a Steampunk fan or are you wondering what all the hype is about?¬† Comment below for a chance to win my EPPIE Finalist¬†E-Book, “Sexing¬†up the Spy”.¬†

So Harvest is just around the corner so I thought why not show some men in the field (literally).

I wonder where they are coming from?






And of course you must rest

 I hope you find time to rest and relax with those you love this weekend.




I love me a man in Uniform!


It’s really no wonder I married one.¬† This fourth of July I give thanks to all those men and women fighting for Independence in countries other than their own.¬† My own husband did two years in Iraq, helping the country to reform.¬† I’m happy to have him home once again.¬† I’d like to say a big thanks to all the military men and women out there.¬† Thank-you for your service.¬†¬† I appreicate it.

I’d also like to recognize some of the men who’ve brought the military to the Big Screen with some style.

Richard Gere in "An Officer and a Gentleman"

An officer and a a Gentleman definately inspired many a military romance of that I have no doubt.

Will Smith in "Independence Day"

How could I not recognize a man in the movie so aptly named?

And of course I have to recognize North Dakota’s very own home grown Josh….Nice.

Josh Duhmel in "Transformers"

Channing Tatum in "Dear John"

Can I just say it’s so nice to have an actor like Tatum who will be around for years to come…Aaahhhh.

Happy Independence Day!
