I've just gotten a wonderful 5 star review from TBR - Goodreads

Another great review from Sizzling Hot Reviews
|Night Owl Choice|
Maybe it was the eagerness in her voice, or maybe just her words, but whatever she said made him smile. Up till then, he’d seemed like a stranger looking back at her. Then his smile changed everything. Unfortunately, it didn’t last too long. But she’d seen enough and decided right away that he had a dear face. Not what one would call handsome, more like interesting. She’d bet that his full head of messy hair cut short and worn close to his head normally didn’t look so scruffy. That wouldn’t be his style at all.
His piercing green eyes didn’t have the same sparkle as his mother’s. They were ruthless and compelling, slightly haughty and intense, and the shrewdest stare she’d ever come across. She felt as if he were trying to find her inside of him by staring into his own eyes.
“Can you see me?” She teased.
“I do believe I can. I went slightly crossed-eyed for a moment, and I have no doubt that was you sneaking a peek.” When he grinned, dimples appeared on both sides of his mouth and created a whole different impression. This man devastated with his attractiveness, his charisma.
Unequivocally, Abbie knew at that moment, not only had her spirit joined with his, but also her heart now faced a challenge. She’d never believed in love at first sight, more fool her. She shut down her corridor to him and curled up into a small ball lodged inside his body. This needed a great deal of thought. She had to talk herself out of this nonsense, and quickly.

2012 - A new Year!
Will this be the New Year I'm praying for? The one where a lot of people find out about my books and want to read them. The year where my sales hit the double and triple digits each day so that I feel that my dreams have finally come true.
Unlike many people, I've been blessed, because I love the work I do. Dreaming up new plots, building my characters from vague, unknown individuals to people I learn to laugh with - and adore. Creating conflicts where those same individuals have to screw up a little like we all do in real life ,and then learn from their mistakes…like we all do in real life!!
So with this thought in mind, I'm praying for this year to be the one. The one that when friends ask me, "when did your career actually take off?" I can say. Oh it was in 2012. My favorite year! I remember it well!
And as much as I hope this for myself, I also have the same wish for each and every one of you. That this will be the year you've all been praying for.
