THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING.


Spring officially comes today. Considering the snow still on our lawn, I think winter is hanging on as tightly as it can. I love spring when the brown of dead grass turns green and the daffodil and tulip bulbs I planted last fall start poking their heads out of the ground. When the trees start budding, spring can’t be far behind.



They say in spring a young man’s fancy turns to love. Personally, I think it’s baseball and opening day of the season. Maybe that’s just me. LOL



Spring Break is coming soon and parents grab their kids and head for Disney World and other fun places. According to our kids, we always took them on “encyclopedia” vacations, like Washington, D.C. and Civil War Battlefields.



Spring Break is a special time for the heroine of my romantic suspense, One Red Shoe. She’s about to set off on an adventure that will change her life. For the hero, this spring brings an added complication to an already complicated situation. As he’s being chased by assassins, he’s falling in love with a woman who is all wrong for him.



Blurb for One Red Shoe:

Daria Mason’s life is too predictable. Nothing ever happens in her small Iowa town where everybody knows everybody else. But when she travels to New York City looking for a little excitement, she never expects to bring home a wounded spy.



From the moment agent Sam Jozwiak steals intel vital to US security from a Russian Mafia kingpin, Murphy’s Law takes over. No matter how he covers his tracks, the kingpin’s assassins find him. What’s worse than getting shot in the butt? Accepting help from an Iowa tourist.



Sam and Daria flee cross country with the assassins right behind them. Sharing danger and excitement—and a few kisses—with Sam soon has Daria convinced he’s the man for her. He thinks she’ll be better off once he’s out of her life for good. With their lives on the line, can she convince him they belong together?

One Red Shoe is available at:

  20. My favorite signs that Spring has definitely sprung is the the dull, drudgery colors of gray and more gray finally disappear and the new growth of green grass pushes up from the ground and the flowers in my garden start to come through the dirt with their myriad of colors. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hop.
