Thanksgiving: Family & Friends

Image
With it being Thanksgiving tomorrow I was thinking about this. The holidays always makes me think about my family and friends. At the moment my family is dealing with my poor mom who fell and broke her wrist. She needed surgery and while we waited to see how she came though it I thought about my family and friends. All the people I'm thankful to have in my life. I'm including all of you in this too. If it wasn't for all of you that follow me regularly I wouldn't have a blog. Okay, maybe I would but it would be a lonely place. I was also thinking about what I love about reading romance, (I know it was a crazy time to think about it but...) is that it's never just about the hero & heroine. It's also about all those people in their lives that help make the story better. Sometimes that person is a mother, father, brother or crazy aunt. Then other times it's the nosy neighbor who calls your mother every time you have someones over that's not fami

Book Love: Saved by the Rancher by Jennifer Ryan

Image
This is the book that started my love affair with Jennifer Ryan. From the moment I read Saved by the Rancher I was hooked on her. I've read and loved everything she's written since. Do yourself a favor and read her series in order. They work better that way. From the moment rancher Jack Turner rescues Jenna Caldwell Merrick, he is determined to help her. Soon, he is tending more than her wounds, he is mending her heart. Jenna is a woman on the run—hunted down by her ex-husband, David Merrick, from the moment she left him, taking part of his company with her, to the second she found herself on the safety of Jack’s ranch. More than just a safe haven, Jack’s offering the love, family, and home she thought was out of reach. Jack’s support and love will give her the strength she needs to reclaim her life. The hunted will become the hunter, as David gets what he deserves when they have an explosive confrontation in the boardroom of Merrick International. But not before Jac
