A perfect date...oh my word.
Sounds like a lot of pressure, honestly.
I've come to realize that perfection is an impossible standard for this mere mortal. I actually attempted a romantic getaway with Wolf, the hubby last month.
It didn't go well. If you want all the gory (albeit funny) details, including stockings becoming slouch socks, you can read it here.

You've all seen the movie trailer but have you caught...the Lego version????
I eat, sleep, breathe and step all over Legos on a DAILY!! I need to wear slippers to protect my feet from those tiny plastic pieces which have drawn blood more than a couple of times.
Then I came upon this trailer and thought it'd be apropos to share with you all, you know, since I'm a romance author as well as a mom to a bunch of little Lego master builders. =)

Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject.
My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite.
When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I had a storyline in my head. Okay, that's not exactly true. I had about a HUNDRED stories in my head before landing on the ONE, and even then I flip-flopped around until I landed on the…Continue

A fascinating story.
About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
