Pink Carriage Rides for Romantic Authors with Sourcebooks

Horse behind us (427x640)
This was the horse behind us.
magical ride (640x519) (2)
At our destination.
Dinner and riverwalk 008 (640x427)spice
And before the ride.
After a lovely meal, we were able to ride in the pink lighted carriages. The horse behind us, pictured, was not pink, but the lights turned him that way.

Talk about a bunch of romance authors having the royal princess treatment! Sourcebooks was great!

And we had a great time!

But the fun is over and it's back to a billion deadlines before the NEXT conference, which is rapidly approaching.

And so is the release of Hero of a Highland Wolf!! Had this lovely review when I got home and started going through my emails! 

Hero Of A Highland Wolf is the 14th book in the series, and I swear this is one of my favorites so far. I just adored every aspect of the story and I couldn't put this one down once I started into it. We see some old characters from past books, which was fun and hilarious and made the story seem even more enjoyable...the icing of the cake!!

The characters in the story were lively and engaging. Grant...is your alpha wolf. Commanding, jealous, possessive and way too over protective, and with a hidden passion that will make you weak in the knees. The male who has had his share of women, and never thought of settling down....but Ian proves him wrong. There is such a male commadarie in the story and we see more of their friendship in this story. Colleen is best friends with Julia....a secret they have kept from the men until now. So they have some aces up their sleeves and know how to pull a wringer on their mates...Collen was such a fun and feisty heroine. She fights for what she believes, is passionate, and independent, but accepts love when she sees it.

Overall a wonderful display of wolf shifter romance, with some historical Scottish culture in a modern day setting, a sexy highlander wolf in a kilt (WOWZERS). a one of a kind heroine, sword fighting, pirate playacting, and some amusing scenes to keep you laughing for days!!! A engrossing story to steal your heart!! EXCELLENT!! Renee B. Addicted to Romance

Carolyn Brown, Sharon Sala, and Terry Spear at #RWA14


I asked if Carolyn would wear her red cowboy boots and she did for our breakfast excursion! She is the sweetest!

And then we had even more of a treat! Sharon Sala sat with us and she shared some wonderful tales that were absolutely fascinating.

Carolyn's husband, Charles, who was our photographer, and I always love talking to him about everything--this time about cameras. :) 
Had a really lovely time, ladies, and thanks so much to Carolyn and Charles for buying us breakfast! :)

Okay, off to visit some more with whoever I can visit with! Hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday! :)

Reviews:


5 Stars!!

 I became hooked on shifter romances years ago and one of the people I blame for this addiction is author Terry Spear. Yes, that’s right, when I began to read Terry Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series, I was hooked. Why? Because Spear creates a fabulous, believable shifter world.

No, I didn’t start looking at my neighbors too closely (though I did wonder about that coyote/wolf that began wandering around). Seriously, though, Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series combines believable protagonists that are shifters whom I’d love to have move in next door. (Yes, quite a few hunky alphas in this group.)

In addition, Spear is a writer who makes every detail clear for her readers. We can see this Heart of the Wolf world take form in front of us with each page we turn. Each of the books include not only charismatic protagonists, but also exciting stories that keep the reader turning page after page.

This spring, I reread the entire series and enjoyed it even more as the details that thread each story and link each book to one another were so clear and well-integrated. The stories may be set in the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Maine, or Scotland, but there are themes and characters that remain consistently as touchstones for her readers. FabFantasyFiction

Romantic Times, 4 Star! HOT

When it comes to paranormal romance, readers can always depend on Spear to deliver. This 14th entry in the acclaimed Heart of the Wolf series will not lee down those rabid fans of the hairy guys who howl at the moon. Hero of a Highland Wolf is guaranteed to excite, tantalize and stimulate all of your senses. And there’s kilts! Jaime A. Geraldi
 

4.5!!!

Ah, those Highland wolves should just RUN when American woman arrive on their doorsteps. They really stand no chance of keeping their hearts to themselves! This is #14 in Ms. Spear's Heart of the Wolf Series. It's a stand alone, although you'll probably want to read the others, because, really...SHIFTERS! Hot Highland SHIFTERS!
Colleen arrives at the castle that she's inherited. She's been forewarned by her best friend that the manager, Grant, of the property is going to try and scare her off. Not that a whole bunch of Highland warriors, wearing kilts and swinging broadswords, would cause her to scarper off. Nope, she's tickled at all the shirtless and oiled men that fill her courtyard.
She is surprised that the men are all shifters. Her father, a jackass if there ever was one, had griped that they were all human.
Once again there are some steamy times as these two work to find their way together. There's a party, with a pirate theme, that had me giggling.
Yep, the Highland wolves should just roll over and show their soft underbellies when the American women come to them. I will definitely be reading more from Terry Spear. Good then she's so prolific!
Kathie Spitz

 

Fresh Fiction! 

I believe that any reader who wants to enjoy an action packed, sizzling romance will enjoy HERO OF A HIGHLAND WOLF ... the shifter aspect isn't overblown, in fact until they shifted to fight at one point    I had forgotten it was a paranormal. It is a fantastic love story plain and simple and one I plan to put in my keeper shelf. by: Annetta Sweetko

The Highlanders Bundle!!! 1st Two Books for One Price of $3.99!!!

HighlandersBundle 500x750
From USA Today Bestselling Author, Terry Spear, comes the long-awaited bundle of her popular two-book Highlander romance series—Winning the Highlander’s Heart and The Accidental Highland Here.
WINNING THE HIGHLANDER’S HEART
Lady Anice vows to flee the amorous advances of King Henry I and return to her home in the Highlands where she hopes to find a laird to wed. She soon discovers her staff has vanished. Premonitions of imminent danger warn her of foul play, and she is certain she is cursed when it comes to marriage.
The king orders the Highlander Laird Malcolm MacNeill, who is seeking an English bride, to provide the lass safe escort and learn what has become of her staff. Escorting her home safely proves a dangerous trial in and of itself and Malcolm has difficulty keeping his heart out of the matter. When the king wishes Lady Anice be wed to one of his loyal barons, the issue is further complicated. Losing his heart to the lass means Malcolm could very well lose his head.
THE ACCIDENTAL HIGHLAND HERO
Lady Eilis Dunbarton’s life undergoes a drastic change with the death of her cousin, Agnes. Now she’s faced with the disagreeable prospect of marrying the man who was to be her cousin’s husband. Not by a change of contract, though. Instead, by deceit—pretending to be her cousin. But if her husband-to-be discovers she’s not really Agnes, her life is forfeit. So what choice does Eilis have but to flee?
When Laird James MacNeill’s clan rescues a half-drowned lass from the sea, there is speculation she is of the enemy clan, especially since she doesn’t remember her own name. James is immediately enticed with the lady, but his focus must remain on finding the proper bride. For if he does not wed soon, he must give up his holdings to one of his younger brothers. Focus slips away with each day Eilis is close, and James finds himself contemplating the thought of taking her to wife without knowing her true identity.
But how dangerous would the end result be? And what will happen if Eilis’s husband-to-be comes looking for her only to find her in the arms of another man?
Still waiting on Barnes and Noble!

Her Highland Hero
Lady Isobel is a Norman laird’s daughter, living near the Scots border where her father, Lord Pembroke, is trying to keep the peace. But her mother was a Highlander and the man Isobel loves most of all is Laird Marcus McEwan, who has been bringing news of her mother’s people for years. But now Isobel’s father wishes her wed to an English nobleman, who will carry on his title. Isobel will wed no other man but her heart’s desire—and that is one braw Highlander from her mother’s homeland.
Laird Marcus McEwan has loved the feisty lass forever. For years, Marcus has tried to convince Lord Pembroke to allow him to wed his daughter. But the Norman lord will not allow it. Then ambushes and murders make it too dangerous for Marcus to reach a peaceful resolution.
Nothing goes as planned and keeping the lass for his own is fraught with danger, as they try to determine who was behind the killings. Isobel and Marcus will do everything in their power to ensure they are together as they have always vowed they would be.

Dragonflies in Flight & the Dinner Out–the New Art of Conversation

2 dragonflies in flight dragonfly in flight (4)dragonfly in flight
When I water, the dragonflies come buzzing around. But even when I don’t, they do. They must be really smart, unlike birds, and know that when I’m out, I might just be getting ready to water. The birds can’t figure out that if I’m out there, I might be bringing them food or water. Maybe that’s where they come up with the term bird brain? It is hard, well, for me, to catch a dragonfly in flight. They fly very fast, but I had fun capturing these images!
sunflower stretching out2 (640x338)
I took some more pictures of the sunflowers. I love them. They remind me of my dad who had planted them so many years ago and once they are gone, I won’t see them for another year. I particularly loved this one, stretching out.

And a picture is worth a million words, don’t you think?

And yes, while this was going on…I took the picture. :)
Okay, I’m back to writing. I only reached 11,000. I was working on setting up a Facebook party for next week for Her Highland Hero Release with some other Highland romance authors. After that, I’ll be doing a Hero of a Highland Wolf one, so stay tuned! And I contracted a narrator who is actually Scottish to do the narration for Her Highland Hero, so excited about that. :)
