Happy Thanksgivukkah to all of my followers, friends and family! 🙂

I love the fact that both of these special, family-centred, holidays which won’t fall on the same day for another 77,000 years!

The last time was in 1888, so cherish the experience 🙂

While some of us enjoy sampling the fruits of our friends’ labour in the kitchen, others enjoy trying new recipes which the rest of us willingly sample.

That’s why I’m posting the links to the recipes for the cute edible Thanksgiving and Hanukkah treats below

Enjoy 🙂

May as many of your dreams and goals as possible me achieved in 2013 and may you also find fulfillment in unexpected ways this year.

I love flowers and thought they’d add to the happiness I’m sending your way. (Check out other photos from LayoutSparks.com)

Preferably close to you, because they take comfort from your presence during times of stress.

Upcoming reviews: “Cade” by Liliana Hart and “Unforgiven” by Deliliah Devlin

Sep 20

It’s been a crazy week and a half peeps! Hoping things settle down over the next few days so I can post the reviews I have on mental shelves. 🙂

Here’s a sneak peak at the next two reviews – erotic romance novellas by two new-to-me authors Delilah Devlin and Liliana Hart.

I’m really looking forward to posting my reviews in the coming days. In fact, my review of Liliana’s novella “Dane” from “The MacKenzie” family series, is already up.

Next in line is her novel “Cade” about Dane’s cousin Cade MacKenzie. If you’re into romantic suspense and/or erotic romance, then you will definitely want to check out the MacKenzies.

Equally a great read for me recently was “Unforgiven” by Delilah Devlin. The novella is book 2 in her “Lone Star Lovers” series and has me intrigued by the rest of the guys and gals we meet in “Unforgiven”.

So check out the book links and author pages I’ve provided (click on red words) and be sure to stop by CABR over the next couple of days for these reviews. 😀

Favourite authors

Aug 5

There are some authors whose workI will always want to read, no matter what anyone says about an individual book. My top three, as you would’ve figured out from the poll, are Nora Roberts, Nalini Singh and Maisey Yates (in random order).

I have vivid memories of how I discovered each author’s work and I’d like to think that’s the sign of an excellent story teller. 🙂

Each writer has her own distinctive style that sweeps me off to familiar yet fascinating worlds, be they contemporary romance, paranormal, romantic  or category romance.

Pick up or download a book by any one or, better yet, all three of these ladies and let me know what you think.

Archangel’s Storm by Nalini Singh

Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh

This book releases on September 4, 2012 in the US and Canada, so make sure you stop by your physical/electronic book store to get your copy!

Ideally, start with book 1 but you will be drawn in and feel connected to the characters no matter which book you start reading.
