“The Book Fair”

Ooh, I’d love to meander around here. (Although I’d avoid the “Dunk the author” part!)

“In a bookshop . . .”

It is a truth universally acknowledged (among book-lovers, at least), that books really do smell nice. ♥

The Magic of Change

I’m so honored to be a part of Read-a-Romance-Month 2019! Here’s a little tidbit from my essay on love and the magic of change:

Graphic: Read-a-Romance-Month logoRomance novels — love stories — can, and do, portray their share of dark matter. But within them, like a bright skein woven throughout a dappled fabric, is an optimistic and unshakable faith in change. That it’s not only possible, but achievable, and it happens just when we’re just about to lose hope. There’s no need to fear, though. See? The heroine and the hero have bettered themselves, they’re changed, their trajectories have met and are firmly joined. 

See? Change; connection; hopefulness. Joy. Magic.

Here it is: love. Magic.

Maybe for us, too. Why not?

Plus, there’s a Q&A, book/author recommendations, and a giveaway! Copies of You May Kiss the Bride and The Laird Takes a Bride, the first two books in my Penhallow Dynasty series, are up for grabs. For a chance to win, simply add a comment at the bottom of the post.The cover for The Laird Takes a Bride by Lisa Berne (Avon Books) Cover for You May Kiss the Bride by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)

Let’s celebrate!

Will you be in or near beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, this Saturday, from 6 to 8 PM? If so, please come join me — and other local romance others — in celebrating the very first annual Bookstore Romance Day at the beloved indie the Well-Read Moose!

It’s a double celebration, really, because the Well-Read Moose is launching its brand-new romance section. (How cool is that?!?) We’ll be talking and signing books, and there will be fun romance-themed drinks and treats available. Plus, if you purchase a romance novel, you’ll get to take a spin on the MOOSE MADNESS PRIZE WHEEL!

For more info, click here. Hope to see you there!
