Black Friday Celebration at Harlequin.com! Save 40% storewide on all titles, 28 November!!!


If you love romance, you must love Harlequin. I know I do.

Yes, I admit to having a vintage Harlequin collection of books scoured from book sales, auctions lots, and used book stores as a teen. All given away . . . but my Harlequin library is growing digitally between all the new offerings and the reissues of favorite titles (including many that I gave away).

When Lisa Wray emailed information about a special Black Friday sale, I knew I'd be looking for more titles to add to my collection - and though you might want to as well. Here's the information on the different sale offerings.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Reading!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving Week!


HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK!!!

Yes, this is my favorite holiday. Why? It provides a chance to reflect on all the blessings that we are given throughout the preceding year or years and to take stock on where we are in life.

Tasty Tuesday Review: Brassicas by Laura B. Russell

It's hard to think of leafy greens as sexy or romantic and broccoli and cauliflower - forget it! But you'll quickly change your opinion of these vegetables when you begin to read Laura B. Russell's amazing cookbook, Brassicas. Now, I cheated a bit with that statement as how could le petit chou - or Brussels Sprouts not seem a bit sexy when given its French name (also an affectionate appellation). But in truth, this family of vegetables, the Brassicas, has had a bum rap. Jokes are made about Presidents who don't like broccoli, smelly cabbage, and, in truth, when these vegetables are not prepared well, they can be less than appealing.

However the subtitle of Russell's book, "Cooking the world's healthiest vegetables," says it all. Yes. there is nothing sexier or more romantic than preparing foods for your loved ones that help fight cancer. Yes, they're "rich in phytochemicals that act as anticarcinogenics, anti-inflammitories, and promote liver detoxification." (p. vii, from the foreward by Rebecca Katz.)

Throwback Thursday: ISO Mary Stewart - again

Reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Heroes Are My Weakness I'm jonesing to read some classic Mary Stewart gothic romances. Yes, she's a weakness of mine. One of my all time fave authors - ever. I wrote about searching for digital versions of her titles in one of my first Throwback Thursday posts (see: http://www.fabfantasyfiction.com/2014/01/throwback-thursday-iso-some-old.html) and wanted to double check now to see if any of her titles had become available in the six-plus months since that post appeared. They haven't - at least on Amazon in the United States.

What? Yes, this is one of those times that I'm tempted to purchase a round-trip (or maybe a one-way) ticket to the UK. Go in search of that perfect North Wales cottage and hunker down and write - and read Mary Stewart books on my Kindle that I could then purchase from the Amazon UK website.

Forget the Hachette Amazon squabble, I want to know why digital books aren't available in every country. I've seen authors post about this - apologizing to readers for delayed publication dates - but I never thought we'd have an entire author's work embargoed. Really. I. Didn't.
