Happy Valentine’s Day

romantic read

During my dating years, I dreaded Valentine’s day. When the day arrived, I’d smile bravely at the gals who received flowers at the office from their significant others. More often than not, I didn’t have a guy in my life because I worked too much. Or the guy in my life wasn’t into sending flowers.

My way of enjoying Valentine’s day was with a romantic book.

Now that I’m married to my hero, I don’t worry about receiving flowers on a specific holiday. We celebrate our love every day of the year. But I still enjoy a romantic read on Valentine’s Day.

This year I’m reading A Royal Christmas: Featuring Waiting for a Duke Like You and A Prince in Her Stocking by Shana Galen.

What are you reading?

If you haven’t decided on something yet consider a book from the Highland Gardens series and travel to the Scottish Highlands—a place where faeries and brownies and other fae creatures dance through time. And on occasion, so do mere mortals.

February Means More Than a Groundhog’s Shadow

groundhog and shadowFebruary means more to me than the celebration of a groundhog’s predictions on the 2nd. Whether winter continues for six more weeks or not, February has a lot more going for it than 28 days.

For instance, the days are getting longer. I like that! Did you know the 3rd is called Feed the Birds day? (note to self: time to buy more bird seed at Home Depot). Valentine’s Day is coming on the 14th and the stores are filled with boxes of chocolates and lovely flowers. George Washington and Abe Lincoln have birthdays, although we will celebrate them together on the 18th. The whole month is considered Black History Month in the US and Canada. The 26th is Tell a Fairy Tale Day. Lots of writers enjoy that as much as the kids!cat under rug

 

My favorite? Love Your Pet Day on the 20th. I am sure all pets are looking forward to getting out from their warm cubby holes to welcome the Spring…except for that darn groundhog!

Whatever day you choose to enjoy and celebrate, we all know that February is generally cold, damp, and dark. Brighten your February by reading a book, such as the ones I have published HERE.

such as… Heaven-sent Warrior   and coming in April….  Heaven-sent Highlander
