I returned home from Las Vegas a few days ago, my head full of new information, my heart full of love for friends that have become like family, and my mind full of exciting new memories. As with the past three years, the Romance Novel Convention transported me to a fun and magical place that almost has a dreamy quality to it. I can’t quite explain it to anyone who hasn’t attended and experienced it for themselves, but it’s a place that comes alive with it’s own special heart, soul, and energy, so much so that each time, I’ve hated to leave it behind.
This year’s RNC had an intimate quality to it as well. It always has, but this year even more so. I felt like I got a chance to interact with more people and on a little more personal level. Each of the past couple of years at RNC, I was blessed to find a new friend, but this year, it was more about deepening relationships with people I’d previously met and then gotten to know over social media. I also met new people who I hope to get to know better. Each year at RNC, I’ve stepped just a little further outside my deeply introverted comfort zone, and I’ve never been disappointed with where that’s taken me. For anyone who knows me well, that’s a huge deal.

In just three days, I’ll be heading to Las Vegas to attend the 4th Annual Romance Novel Convention. I’ve had so much fun at the last three, I can’t wait to get started. I’ve made many friends there who have become like family to me, and I’m eager to see all of them again. It’ll be a family reunion of sorts.:-) I’m also looking forward to meeting new people, learning great information in the educational classes, and having fun at the evening activities and at the Book Fair on Saturday. I know I’m going to have a great time.

My only five-star read in March was an oldie but a goodie. It was the second book written by one of my favorite authors and equally as good as the first. It’s the story of a spoiled princess and the man she’s loved all her life. But despite his reciprocal affection for her and all his successes in life, he can’t shake the feeling that his origins as a street urchin make him unworthy of a woman of royal blood. It was a deeply emotional and romantic read that I could hardly put down.

My favorite five-star read from February was a small-town, contemporary, western romance by one of my favorite authors. It has also become my favorite thus far in the series of which it’s a part. It’s filled with tender romance, family drama, and a light mystery that kept me fully engaged, and I was very impressed with how deftly the author juggled a diverse and extensive character palette. It was simply an all-around great read that I really enjoyed.

My favorite book from my January reading was quite possibly the sweetest romance I've ever read. It's a tender story filled with human emotions that really tug at the heartstrings. IMHO, it would be a perfect book to turn into a Hallmark Channel movie. It had been quite a while since I'd read a historical romance set on the old west, and this was a great book to reinvigorate my interest in this romance sub-genre.

I'm a little late getting this posted, but better late than never. I've put together my 2015 Best of the Year Reading List, and as usual, it's an eclectic group of books. Since I'm such a slow reader and rarely have time to read books when they're released, I compile the list from the books I read during the previous year. This makes for a nicely rounded list of brand new books, mixed with older ones, and a little bit of everything in between. I primarily read romance, but on the occasions that I step away from it, I also read a wide variety of other genres. Therefore, my list has lots of romances along with a little bit of everything else, including fantasy, YA, children's, graphic novels, and non-fiction. I've also nominated books in a variety of categories, including best characters, best lines, and prettiest covers. I hope you'll check out my full list and perhaps find your next great read.

If you live in the Phoenix area or will be visiting this coming weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 5-7, 2016, I hope you'll consider attending the Glendale Chocolate Affaire. It's an annual event held just before Valentine's Day to celebrate love and romance. Many of my fellow romance authors and I will be signing our books there. You'll find us in the romance authors tent near 58th and Glendale Avenues, just east of the Velma Teague Library. The event is held in Murphy Park in the heart of historic downtown Glendale. There's always lots of food (including my favorite... chocolate :-)), craft booths, shopping, live music, activities for the kids and much, much more. Parking and admission to the event are free. The Chocolate Affaire is lots of fun for the whole family, so come on down and check it out.
