Happy Thanksgiving!

I can't believe it's that time of year again! How did November get here so quickly? But I'm thrilled. I get to cook, which I love to do, and spend time with family, which I never get enough time to do. Also, I get to start planning for one of my favorite holidays...Christmas!

I don't want to detract from Thanksgiving in any way, because it's a wonderful time for me and my family. However, I can't resist the opportunity to post something about my Christmas romance, A Sense of Duty. I wrote it under another pen name, and it was originally an erotic romance. However, I went back and revised it for my new publisher and now it's more of just a sweet romance about a returning vet and the woman who captured his heart from her first e-mail. I wrote this one for my mother, who always believed in romance and in the idea that people who are meant to be together will be. It's a story about faith more than anything, and I think that faith is one of the most important elements of the coming holiday season. Here's a brief description:

"Struggling single mom Heidi Gentry and ex-soldier Rick Goodall are two people who always try to do the right thing, even at their own expense. When Wendy, Heidi’s best friend since high school, asks her to start writing her older brother Rick while he serves in Iraq, Heidi is stunned to find herself falling for a man she barely remembers, especially one who’s married. She immediately decides she is still on the rebound from her divorce and cuts off communication. However, Christmas often brings surprises, and a chance encounter at the local mall convinces Rick, back from Iraq and divorced, he has to find out where he stands with the woman who captured his heart with her very first e-mail. With his sister's help, they devise a wacky plan to help everyone get what they want for Christmas this year, even if he has to go undercover to do it."

I hope everyone has a wonderful, peaceful Thanksgiving. I wish you all the best for a wonderful holiday and can't wait to blog as the rest of the season unfolds. Just don't forget to make some time for that very special passion we all share--reading. :)

Happy Reading!
