All I ask is that you Read~Review~Recommend!
For a Knight of the Swan, any mission might lead to fortune—but the chance for love comes once in a lifetime . . .
Margaret Grace is the lady of Fletchers Landing, earning what she can as a beekeeper and mead maker, and playing a nerve-wracking game with the mercenaries who demand payment to ensure her village’s safety.
When an unknown man appears on horseback one day, Meg knows she can’t trust him—especially when the dashing knight claims to be looking for fabled lost riches. But her desires are harder to control . . .
Tormented by the memories of his imprisonment at the hands of a vicious mercenary, Sir Nathan Staves is glad to be abroad on a quest for His Majesty. His task promises the chance to recover a legendary lost bounty, but also throws him into the path of the beguiling Meg. Their breathtaking passion awakens just as a familiar danger does, forcing Nathan to decide which is the greater prize—an elusive treasure, or the love of a woman he will die to protect . . .

Now for some road trip trivia. Don’t let your nerves get too rattled on this one. What is the most-stolen car in America? (See if you can find the answer below.) The 1996 model was stolen 52,244 times last year. Wow!
Does this mean that all of our New Year’s Resolutions can be reset? We’ll take it! We’re also taking a quick detour from our daily hard work to share this bit of trivia with you. Hope you enjoy it!
There are luncheons and then there are luncheons.
The fourth annual Readers Luncheon is one of the latter and is heading to Utah on Oct. 13.
I will be attending, as well as hosting an author’s table, and I’d love to see you there.
The RWA Readers Luncheon provides an amazing opportunity to spend time with other romance writers.
This year, RWA will be held at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah and will feature a number of well-known authors who will share insight into the art of romance writing.
In fact, this year’s keynote speaker is none other than Susan Wiggs. Here’s a bit about her:
For Susan life is all about family, friends…and fiction. She lives at the water’s edge on an island in Puget Sound, and in good weather, she commutes to her writers’ group in a 21-foot motorboat. She’s been featured in the national media, including NPR and USA Today, has given programs for the US Embassies in Buenos Aires and Montevideo, and is a popular speaker locally, nationally, internationally, and on the high seas.
From the very start, her writings have illuminated the everyday dramas of ordinary people. Her books celebrate the power of love, the timeless bonds of family and the fascinating nuances of human nature. Today, she is an international best-selling, award-winning author, with millions of copies of her books in print in numerous countries and languages.
Her novels have appeared in the No. 1 spot on the New York Times Bestseller List and have captured readers’ hearts around the globe. She is a three-time winner of the RITA Award, the highest honor given for a work of romantic fiction. Her recent novel, The Apple Orchard, is currently being made into a film.
Other special guests include top romance writers: RaeAnne Thayne, Lisa Bingham, Irish Winters, and many more. Additionally, there will be book signings, door prizes and opportunities to speak with authors.
Come hungry, as there will be a buffet filled with goodies. Interested in going? You can register here.
