...much of interest to say (yeah, that's news - ha!) but thought I would share it anyway. First off, I'm knee-deep in the charming "Chesapeake Bay" series by Nora Roberts and am enjoying myself immensely. I've always been more partial to her JD Robb persona and find that while this series can't compare to the "In Death" books, they are still wonderfully engaging contemporary romances with a close family bond that I love.
I also love that while these books were written and released about 10 years ago, they don't feel dated in any way. Love that a lot. Have I chosen a favorite Quinn yet? Well, not completely, but I am leaning towards Ethan. Yes, Cam is a sex god of immense stature, but I've always been drawn to the "still waters that run deep" character, so I find myself leaning towards him. His actions at one point did annoy me a little, but well, I feel his heart was in the right place if a bit mis-guided. Anyway, I'm just beginning Phillip's story, and then there's Seth to adore. This reader is very happy about that.
Last chance to enter my contest over the next few days. I think this is my favorite one yet, so I'm more anxious than anyone (maybe) to draw the winner's name. The original plan was to draw a name February 1st, but well, that's Friday, and the thing is, plans have changed a bit.
See, my boss is taking me and 7 of my co-workers out for a celebratory dinner because both our offices made over 125% over goal - woo hoo! I am going to give myself a shout-out here because day-um I contributed about 95% of my office's results, so I'm feeling a bit conceited and worthy right now...completely ignoring the fact that the bar has been raised considerably and this year will be heinous. It's only January - I'll panic later as no good deed goes unpunished. For now, I'm going to bask a little, drink some girly martinis. Yay me. (Snort. God am I annoying or what?)
So the point of that totally unnecessary explanation was to say that I will probably announce the winner Saturday instead, though it may be a busy one, so I'm not sure what time. The contest still ends January 31st. I know you're impatient to win an evening with Richard, and I am willing to share ;)
And in other news, some of you may remember several months ago I wrote a post about one of my heroes, my good friend Cynthia (whose husband is completely paralyzed and can't even talk). Well, she has a birthday today, and I want to wish her a very happy birthday and send out a gazillion happy thoughts and vibes. She is just one of my all-time favorite people in the universe - and the sister of my heart. Happy b-day Cinj.
It's currently -2 degrees...sigh. Y'all stay warm, dry and happy, and I'll catch ya later.
