For me, playing is the best -- playing outdoors in nature or in my garden, experimenting in the kitchen, spending time with those I love. I also enjoy disappearing into a good book, attempting crafts, learning, writing, exploring, discovering. I especially like to mix it up and have yet to perfect any of it; and I've come to realize that perfection's not the point. It's all wonderfully fun. That's the point!
I prefer authentic and natural, be it food, lifestyle, people. I passionately enjoy both history and science, and certainly sociology to a degree, and I am most truly a romantic.
My husband and I have been married for 39 years. We reside near Houston, Texas and are very glad that our dear children do, too. We have a blast with our little grandchildren.
I thank God for this wonderful life.
Time Travel Romance
He could never lose her. In the infinite vastness of time – past, present, future, past – he wouldn’t lose her.
Love was eternal.
Lachlann had lost his entire family to the plague. He’d lost himself by falling through time. He had to go back, to return to the fourteenth century and try to save his family, save his son. But how could he leave Deidre? He needed her like he needed air. And she needed him.
Would she want him if he told her the truth about himself? Would she even believe him?
Deidre had never known a man could be as beautiful and tender as Lachlann. She wanted to erase the haunted look in his eyes, to make him as happy as he made her. She wished he would confide in her. But was she ready to confide in him? To explain how she’d lost everything – her life, her family, her self-respect – because of her own poor choices?
Why did she have the feeling she could lose it all again?
If Only You Knew
Fly too close to the sun and you’ll get burned. Zechariah knows that only too well. But he hadn’t flown to the sun. She had come to him. And he's absorbing her rays, wanting, needing, desperately reaching for more.
But the sun can’t shine in a cave, which is where he belongs.
Zechariah’s appearance has caused him nothing but grief all his life. Even his mother rejected him. How could someone as beautiful as Augusta Mae Anderson want to even be in the same room with him? Yet he's drawn to her – mind, body, heart.
Augusta Mae has never met anyone like Zechariah Baroudi. Brilliant himself, he appreciates her hard work and her intellect, respects her. He accepts her for who she really is and seems to understand her without even trying. He doesn’t see her as a shallow, stupid blonde like everyone else does. And he has the most beautiful eyes…
Too bad that his bodyguards – aka, his obnoxious brothers – won’t leave them alone and neither will her brother. Too bad they're fighting with everyone they love just because they're together.
Too bad Zechariah doesn’t want this for either of them.
