Elisa Wilde’s recurrent erotic dreams transcend time and place. Dreams so real they seem to be actual memories of a bygone era. Driven to unravel the mystery and reclaim her life, she’s drawn into a sexy adventure—the search for another woman’s lover.
In a tragic twist of fate, Michael Claret lost his true love. He knows her soul will return and has waited decades for their passionate reunion, but getting her back is only a small part of the battle. Edie has changed, reincarnated as a different woman—Elisa. Not only will Michael have to once again win her heart, he must also gain her acceptance of his true nature. And to keep her requires she make a huge leap of faith by completing the mating bond—a sharing of blood binding them together for eternity.
Fate is a cruel mistress who will not be cheated or denied. To make the most of their second chance, Michael and Lis must alter the path chosen for them and rewrite their love story or be lost to each other forever.

Taking the time for gratitude each day is a tangible reminder of how lucky I truly am.
I have my health, which is no small thing. There is a roof over my head and food in the cupboard. I don't take those things for granted. I am grateful for a cup of hot tea on a cold winter's day. For the fluffy pillows and flannel sheets on the bed just waiting for me to snuggle into their warmth and comfort later tonight.
I am thankful for my husband, who is my best friend. He also makes me laugh at least once a day, which is truly a gift worthy of praise.
I could sit here and list dozens of things I'm grateful for. The trick is to remind myself of those things every single day.
Have a great Wednesday!

"Life isn't about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself."
Whoever said this is one smart cookie.

The wait is finally over! Threads of Destiny is now available from Ellora’s Cave Publishing. This time travel/ménage story continues the Tapestries series, although it can be read as a stand-alone book.
Marc Garen knows and understands the laws of his world. On Javara, women are scarce and brothers must share, although only one can be her husband. But he is lonely to the depths of his soul and longs for a woman of his own. A woman who has haunted his dreams.
Kathryn is a scientist, fighting to save two genetically enhanced super soldiers from termination when a magical tapestry transports them all to Javara. Now three men share Kathryn’s bed, all bent on satisfying her every desire. But Marc is resolved to make her his alone. He has three days to convince her…before the tapestry returns.

It has to do with time and calendars.
The Roman (Julian) calendar was a tad off in its calculations of time and in 1582 Pope Gregory decided to fix that--hence the Gregorian Calendar was adopted by Catholic Europe. Now, many Protestants didn't want the Pope telling them what to do, so they ignored it. By 1751, when Britain passed the Calendar Act, there was actually 11 days difference between them and most of Europe. They would have been celebrating Christmas on what was January 6th. Thus the name, Old Christmas Day.
Regardless of where it came from, it is the day when all the holiday decorations are supposed to come down so the new year can begin. Many folks still hold to that tradition. I know my mother does.
For me it depends on how I'm feeling. Some years, I'll leave the deocrations up until Old Christmas Day. Other years, like this one, I have them all packed away and Christmas 2008 is in the memory books.
Happy Old Christmas Day!

I know that Old Christmas Day is tomorrow, but we packed away the remnants of the holiday over the weekend. It was time to get back to normal. Some years I'll keep the tree up until after Old Christmas Day. Other years I've taken it all down on New Year's Day. Most years it falls somewhere in-between.
January is a time of new beginnings. The year is new and fresh with nothing but possibilities ahead.
Now if I can only kick-start myself into 2009 I'd be happy. *g*

And, as Jenn pointed out in her comment, The Seduction of Shamus O’Rourke is nominated in the same category. Somehow I missed that when I first read the list. I think I was so excited about having a book nominated.
That's two JAMESVILLE books nominated for best Erotic Contemporary Romance. I'm going to have to celebrate again. *g*
Thank you to The Romance Studio and congratulations to all the other authors nominated for awards.
You can check out all the nominees at The Romance Studio. You can check out A Legal Affair, or any of my books, at my website.

It's hard to believe that 2008 is over and 2009 is here. I did the ritual putting up of the new calendars today. Those are something I buy at the after-Christmas sales every year.
Now that the page has turned on the last year, it's time to start looking ahead. I don't make resolutions, as such. I just want to try and live as good a life as I can. I figure that covers just about everything.
May 2009 be a very good year for us all!
