When it’s chilly outside, Snuggle In with Sweet Romance! Hope you’ll join us!
No matter where you are in the world, be it autumn breezes in the southern hemisphere or spring rains in the north, the weather these days is unpredictable, often chilly and wet. It’s been rain here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
How do you get comfortable on those cold and rainy days?
You might curl up with a good book, a hot chocolate (or a homemade mocha — yum!), and a nice warm blanket to snuggle under. What good book can I recommend?
The AUTUMN’S KISS anthology presents a lovely variety of stories by sweet romance authors from around the globe and gives you an opportunity to discover some new favorites.
While romance readers in the southern hemisphere are enjoying autumn, 6 authors from the AUTUMN’S KISS anthology have teamed up to share recipes for their favorite comfort foods and invite you to share in the bounty!

Two lovely reviews from book reviewer Shabnam (Instagram + site) for Henrietta The Dragon Slayer + Henrietta and the Dragon Stone.
Here’s some highlights!
About Henrietta The Dragon Slayer (Book 1 of the series by the same name):
“This book kept me glued till the end and keep my heart beating fast. I totally am in love with the pairing of Franc and Henrietta cause why should I? It’s so exciting! Thanks to the author for introducing me to such a luscious, exciting, adventurous read. Can’t wait to dig into the next book.
For those who love kick ass female lead characters with great adventure and fights as also some romance to brighten up the mood, I totally recommend it.”
“When we come across story books based on bravery, it is always a gallant, invincible, handsome man who is the leading character and the representative of strength and bravery. To come across ass kicking dragon slayer is very rare that also a woman!”
About Henrietta and Dragon Stone (Book 2 of the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series):
“In the book, one can see the constant fear Henrietta has to go through for the life of her loved ones. However, Henrietta is not a woman to back down and give up.”
Learn more about Henrietta The Dragon Slayer, Book 1, here:
Learn more about Henrietta and the Dragon Stone, Book 2, here:
And now you can learn more about book 3 in this series: Henrietta and the Battle of the Horse Mesahere. (Shabnam will be getting her copy soon, thanks to my Patrons on Patreon. You can learn more about that here.)
I’m excited to bring out to my readers the new Touchstone series.
In this post, I share how you can get your own bookmarks. I’ll ship you 6 bookmarks for you and your friends to anywhere in the world.
All 5 current books are highlighted in the pretty bookmarks, the 2 Christmas ones on one side and the other 3 French-centric romances on the other.
Fun Fact: It wasn’t until I was putting this bookmark together that I realized my French-focused bookmarks all take place in France. That wasn’t a conscious plan! I’ve lived in France and Quebec, and am a bit of a Francophile. Does it show?!
Here’s the list of the 5 books in the series. Click on each link to read excerpts of each book. The links go to pages on my site.
BLOG GIVEAWAY: Also, for those who comment below and share their most romantic Valentine’s Day, I will give away one (1) digital copy of A LABYRINTH OF LOVE AND ROSES. (Read an excerpt here.)

ABOUT CHRISTMAS MAGIC
In this collection: A CHRISTMAS FLING and A CUPCAKE CHRISTMAS, 2 novellas for your Christmas reading pleasure!
What if falling in love put the life you cherished in jeopardy?
Dahlia, a Santa’s Elf, has 21 days left before Christmas to create the best toy in the world without using magic or revealing her true identity. Stuck on how to complete the prototype, and working as a temp in San Francisco’s financial district with no time for love, will her Christmas fling get her unstuck, or will she turn her back on her beloved career for her heart?
Liam, an up-and-coming financial analyst, swore off women after getting dumped by the love of his life. He just found out his ex is going to the company Christmas party with his rival Michael Hendricks. Up for promotion against Hendricks, Liam has to win the favor of his boss. His best bet is to invite the vivacious secretary Dahlia to the party. Will Dahlia be a welcome distraction, or will she turn his life upside down?
What if you risked losing your baking legacy by cooking up a love truly special?
Florian MacMillian needs a final job to complete his baking resume—preferably a job where he’s unlikely to blow things up with his unruly magic—before returning to the North Pole and taking his rightful place as Master Baker to all the elves. Kate Delore desperately needs help in her fast-growing cupcake business. Florian is a perfect fit, so she brings him on as baker. Florian is happily up to his elbows in batter, and Kate’s business is booming. But when things heat up between them, Florian wonders if he should risk his legacy to cook up something truly special.

Every year I pick a charity to donate to, usually under the umbrella of my coaching business. This year, I’m supporting a local charity, the City of Oakland’s Community Toy Drive 2016, under the umbrella of my author self. 🙂
Specifically, I’m donating all three books (in print and signed) in my young adult adventure fantasy series — the Henrietta The Dragon Slayerseries — to the Toy Drive.
And now I’m asking you to help by donating books especially for girls up to 12 years old.
I thought I’d mobilize my author and fan community and make sure that they had enough books this year. A friend told me that they didn’t have enough good books for girls last year. So this year I want to knock their socks off with great books for girls! Boys too, of course!
