Christmas Ride Blog Event!

  • I don't know about you, but nothing gets me into the holiday spirit like a good Christmas movie.
    Although "A Christmas Story" is always good for a laugh and "A Wonderful Life" is a classic, my personal favorite would have to be "Home Alone."

    There is something about little Kevin McCallister that just speaks to me. A smart, caring, intelligent 8 year old boy who feels overlooked by his busy and harried family, acts out, says things he doesn't mean and has to live with the consequences. Watching him grow, fend for himself, buy groceries, order pizza (oh, and toss paint cans at the bad guys) is just a great ride of a movie.

    Now, how about you? What is your favorite Holiday movie?

    Those who leave a comment today, telling me their favorite Holiday film, will be entered to receive a digital download of any book from my backlist!


    Collect the songs to enter the grand prize drawing. One lucky person will win a $75 Wild Rose Press gift certificate! All you need to do to enter is attend each day's blog post, identify the carol, and make a complete carol list to submit after the final blog post of Christmas Eve. Don't forget to check the list twice!

    Send it to by midnight, CST Dec. 31st 2008!

    Now here is the pretty big hint to my song choice for the grand prize. By the way, the song is also featured in a scene from my favorite holiday film mentioned above. :-)

    Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet

    Jingle around the clock...

    Good luck in the contest!! And if you missed stops or have gotten lost along the way, here are the past blogs where the ride has been spreading Christmas cheer!

I've been Joyfully Reviewed!

Kaiya Gilbraith’s father, the Duke, is anything but parental towards her. The Duke is determined to marry her off to the highest bidder to cover his debt. When Kaiya keeps rejecting all her suitors, it does not make him feel any warmer towards her. Poor Kaiya is betrayed by the Duke, only to find herself in a situation that is beyond all hope.

Hope and love arrive in the form of an Elfin warrior. Hanarom Avindaul has spent years fighting to save his people and lands, while defending the innocent and helpless. Although he has rescued many fair damsels, Kaiya is different from any woman he has ever met, mortal or immortal. There is no denying his heart, and he could never leave her to the horror that has become her life.

A Magical Encounter is romance-meets-fantasy at its finest. The villains were beyond psychological and social rehabilitation, and the lovers are captivating without being syrupy sweet. The bad guy stalks Kaiya every step of the way, and you are often on the edge of your seat scared for her while hoping that Hanarom will administer a major beat down to the scumbag.

Although Hanarom is an Elf, he’s depicted as another race in the sense of the Lord Of The Rings characters. I might even suggest that he would give Legolas a run for his money on sex appeal. He and Kaiya form an instant connection through their strong character, love of nature and sense of honor. The trials and dangers they encounter really bring them closer. It’s refreshing to see Kaiya save and defend Hanarom nearly as often as he does her. In so many different ways, Ms. Hatfield depicts them as equals, and does a great job of uniting two very different people together by playing up their similarities. The love scenes are passionate, sultry and sensuously written.

Overall, A Magical Encounter delivered on adventure and romance, and more than earned its HEA. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a successful melding of these genres.

Aw, talk about the perfect boyfriend...

Okay, I had to post this picture.

Look at Went...he's got my People magazine, a coffee (the hot one is mine, of course - only he likes those sweet, mocha things - blech!), a new pillow for the bed from Bed Bath - oh, and you can't forget those handcuffs dangling from his oh-so yummy fingers. *wriggling brows*

We broke our fuzzy pair last time around...see the secret smile on his face - he's thinking about it right now. *winks*

LOL! Fiction can be fun. :-)

New Review for the Elf Book!!

A Magical Encounter

Meagan Hatfield


Sensuality Rating: S-ensuous 4 Flames

Rating: 4 Enchantments

"Prince Hanarom, prince of the elves, is heading out to help his friends conquer the enemies and keep his lands safe for his people. He is two hundred two years old, and his mother thinks it is time for him to remarry, produce an heir, and Hanarom is not interested.

Lady Kaiya of Seriador is human, she can’t figure out why her father is determined to marry her off and she’s not ready. After rejecting each suitor her father has put before her, she is finally sold off as a whore, and taken from her lands.

This is a story of love, intrigue and murder, where elves, beasts and humans war with one another trying to keep their lands and people free. This is a love story between an elf and a human who come together in the middle of all of the war and intrigue and fall deeply in love.

This is an absolutely beautiful story with twists and turns at every corner. Meagan Hatfield has beautifully woven whispers of attraction, and sweetness throughout this fantasy culminating in a cacophony or romance. This is truly an enchanting magical love story, a happily-ever-after if I’ve ever read one. The fantasy is beautiful; to watch two people from different races come together in love despite all odds. Truly beautiful! The scenes of love, beauty, discord and sadness are magnificently portrayed. This is a must read for all fantasy lovers and all romantics. Beautiful story, Meagan, well done. This one is a keeper!"

Yea! Sara is alive and coming back on Prison Break!!!

OMG, I am hyperventilating in joy right now! First we hear there is a season 4 of PB and now this!! I don’t need a Christmas or Birthday present for the next 5 years now, I’m so happy! LOL!

Sarah Wayne Callies: Back from the Dead!
Thu, 27 March 2008
In one crazy unexpected twist, Sarah Wayne Callies is coming back to Prison Break next season!!!

Yes, even after her character, Dr. Sara Tancredi was unexpectedly beheaded last season. Apparently she had a contract dispute with 20th Century last year but that’s all been resolved.
In the fourth episode of season three ("Good Fences"), Sara’s head was presumably decapitated, placed in a box, and sent to Lincoln Burrows. So how can she be written back into the series?


Sarah Wayne Callies — whose rather ugly contract dispute with producers led to her apparent decapitation last October — is returning next season. Full-time. As Dr. Sara Tancredi. Head and all. Seriously.How? Why? When? WTF?! All legitimate questions. Good thing I just hung up with Mr. Answer Man (aka executive producer Matt Olmstead).

So... I take it that wasn’t Sara’s head in that box....
Matt Olmstead: Yeah, that wasn’t.But initially it was supposed to be her head.
What changed?
Olmstead: What changed was.... once we realized that the emotional hook of Season 3 was going to be the death of Sara, when we didn’t get the actress to do it, as soon as we wrote it and shot it, we realized that there was actually a way she could still be alive. Lincoln glanced at the head in the box for a split second. That could’ve been anyone. He wasn’t about to pull it up from the hair and inspect it closely. And then we were fairly careful thereafter of references we made to that and who took credit for it and what was seen or heard, and we left it fairly [vague]. But initially when we realized that we never actually saw the character get killed, we just had that knowledge in our back pocket and moved forward with the narrative as we intended. Which was: she’s out of the picture, Michael’s [feeling guilty] and Lincoln is freaking out because if they did that to her, they could do that to his son. It really gave us a real push for the season.

Don’t you think that was a little unfair to the audience — particularly fans of Dr. Sara — to jerk them around like this? They had every reason to believe she was dead.
Olmstead: I don’t think it was unfair, because it gave us some real juice storytelling-wise — it put teeth in the antagonists. Obviously they were now capable of killing somebody. It also gave us a couple of episodes where Lincoln withheld the information from Michael, and that gave us conflict with the brothers. But also, what were we really going to do? Were we going to see Sarah Wayne Callies tied to a chair for 13 episodes? And then if she broke free, what is she really doing? It was almost a disservice to that character to keep her around last season. Certainly, we could have put her on a cruise ship and she’s off sailing away. But we felt that if we’re going to lose that character, why not get the most drama out of it? We didn’t look at it in terms of [us] trying to tell the audience to go, you know, do something to themselves.

What role did the fan response to Dr. Sara’s death play in her return?
Olmstead: It factored in. It was kind of a confluence of events. We saw on the message boards that a lot of fans were wondering if she really was dead. And then that led to conversations of, "Well, what if she isn’t?" But then we put that on the back burner and moved forward with what we had to do, because it wasn’t anything that could be dealt with right then. And then when we came back after the strike and we realized that we were not going to finish Season 3... we creatively decided to blow it all out, jump forward in the timeline and get a fresh start. And so, when we pitched that, a lot of those elements remained, but we were still looking for that emotional core for Michael. We were kind of exactly where we were in the beginning of Season 3, which led to her demise, quote unquote. So we went back and revisited [the idea of bringing her back to life]. And once we started talking about it, it was mentioned again that fans are still wondering about her. And when people who are fans of the show — and of Sarah — are asking, "Is she really dead?", what they’re saying, essentially, is, "I hope she’s not dead." And then it became a kind of groundswell.

But then you have to get the actress to agree to return, which I assume was no easy task given the bad blood that seemed to exist last season.
Olmstead: There wasn’t bad blood on our side. It was a business decision. I understood where she was coming from in that she was given a provisional assurance that she was going to be a part of Season 3, but we had to revisit Season 3 a couple of times in the pitch stage in order to get it picked up. Fox was still looking for that emotional hook. Once we came up with the idea of her character going away, that gave us what we needed to push things over the edge. And although we were comfortable with it, she wasn’t. I also understand on a personal level how it factored in. She was pregnant at the time and looking forward to giving birth, and this wasn’t something she was interested in doing.

What changed for her that she’s willing to come back now?
Olmstead: She and I spoke a couple of days ago at length about what we have come up with creatively for her character.... We’re jumping ahead a little bit in the timeline. There’s a little bit of a mystery period for all of these characters in terms of how they got where they are and what happened to them. And we have some interesting things for her, and she responded to them creatively. We won’t just be picking up where we left off with her character. And she won’t be a damsel in distress waiting for her hero to return. There are some complicating factors involved with her character and things that she’s looking forward to. So we spoke about it, she thought about it, and we made a deal.

No hard feelings, then? Everyone’s moving on?
Olmstead: Moving on. She’s a very smart lady, and we’re all adults here. It was never personal. It was a business and creative decision, and we’re absolutely moving on.

Can you say how she’ll be reintroduced next season?
Olmstead: It’s going to be about figuring out what happened to her during that mystery period [between the end of Season 3 and the start of Season 4], and how she and Michael deal with it.

How much time will have lapsed?
Olmstead: About a month. Enough to jump past expected events that we left hanging at the end of Season 3, answering those things, but also moving forward.

And Sarah is onboard for the entire season?
Olmstead: Yes.

OK, there you have it. Thoughts on this mind-blowing turn of events? Yay? Nay? Jump the Sharkay? Sound off below!

5 Heart Review!!!


The Marquis and the Mistress

Meagan Hatfield
Historical romance
Available from
The Dark Castle Lords
ISBN: 978-1-921347-40-5
February 2008

Cosette has one option left to her -- she must catch King Henry’s eye. She must seduce him and then become his new mistress or she stands to lose everyone important to her. What she never expected was to see her betrothed. The man she believed had died ten years ago at sea. The man whose disappearance ultimately put her in the position she's in today.

Francois has traveled to see the king for one reason only, to inform him of a possible plot against him. But when he sees the woman he has loved for the past ten years, his betrothed that he was forced to leave behind, his plans change. When he begins to believe she could be involved in the plot to bring down the king, he has to decide to turn her in or save her at any cost. Can two lost souls be reunited after so long? Or has time and circumstance forced them apart forever?

Meagan Hatfield has written an exciting tale of lost love, secrets, and devious plots. Cosette and Francois were such well-written characters. The love-hate relationship between these two wonderful people, along with the fiery passion that burns up the pages, is all consuming. I was unable to put this one down. Although at times I found the situations the characters had to withstand a little distressing, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exciting, sexually charged romance because this has to be one of the best I have read. Hats off to this great author. I look forward to reading more of her stories in the future.

Prison Break is killing me!!!

Okay, I'm about to go off here...don't mind me, I'm just venting. :-)

Now, I don't really watch TV. Well, not on a weekly basis, (and I never blog about it.) The whole thing has become so unpredictably annoying it became difficult to emotionally invest myself in a show, only to have it go on some random hiatus for a year, change time slots, (or worse) change days.

However, Prison Break is the exception. Or was. Until they killed the heroine and love interest - Sara.

Now, I read that because she was pregnant in real life, she didn't want to work - wanted to be at home with the babe, etc. Well, I am hoping and praying that the actress had her kid, realizes that life at home with a toddler is monotonous, begs to be written back into the show and they allow it. I was a stay at home mom and after two years, I was pulling out my hair for any adult interaction that didn't require Playdough or Lego's. And I mean, the show is basically a soap opera - characters have returned from the grave before - it wouldn't be the first time. It's totally doable.

While I'm going off on my diatribe here...the whole female prison spin-off concept with the lead actress being Michael's new love interest is thoroughly insulting! No, no, NO!

Words are failing me, so I'll just have you look at this vid of Michael learning about Sara's death.

Now, tell me what does he have left? If Sara was not the love of his life and his soulmate is indeed this new lady, what reaction could he possibly give her? What corner of his heart is left for her?

I'll tell you. Nothing.

He spent all of his emotions, all of his heart on Sara. Meaning anything else would be unbelievable and pointless or render him an absolute ass in viewers eyes.

His character - as it has been outlined from the beginning - is guarded and intelligent. No way would he go for another person caught up in the "company's" net. He would have learned his lesson. As Sara once wrote - he would "know better."

Like I said, I hope that they bring her back. I am a romance author after all and it kills me to not have a "Happily Ever After" for the hero and heroine. But if the writers, in their "wisdom" decide to have her remain dead, I sincerely hope they know better than to give him a new love interest. It would demean anything and everything that Michael ever said or did...and THAT my dear bloggers, would be a tragedy. He is truly one of the best characters to hit the television in a long time and it would be a shame to see him go down like that.

Okay, I'm done. Phew! It's nice to have a place to get that off my chest. Now, back to my dragon hottie...until next time...

But even though her food is damn near as hot as her sun kissed body, Dale is determined not to let anything stand in the way of his success. Especially not some California girl’s enchiladas.

But when a edibly handsome stranger catches her attention at the local bar, Sam can’t deny the intense attraction, and decides to give into the moment and satisfy her unfulfilled desires.

*4 ½ cherries from Whipped Cream Reviews!
"I loved these stories! It was a case of two great stories for the price of one. Both of these stories were HOT, HOT, HOT and yet sweet at the same time... My only regrets as far as these stories went, I wanted more! Even though both stories were short, I felt a connection with the characters and loved their witty byplay. I would love to see a story down the line where we get to revisit these two couples and see how much hotter it could get. Ms. Hatfield has a definite talent for interesting situations and loading on the heat. She's definitely one to watch for."
