A real love story

Have you read Shiloh Walker? I'll reluctantly admit that I'm hit and miss with her books, mostly because I'm just not into the kinkier stuff. I've known Shiloh for years and while she may act all tough and bad ass, truth be told she's a real softy, a sweetheart who is a dedicated wife and mother whose family is her life.
Shiloh has a new release (out today) titled BEAUTIFUL SCARS. I'd read excerpts from this book over the past couple of weeks and pre-ordered it.  It arrived on my Kindle early this morning and while I was home on a sick day today, I indulged and read it immediately. I'll admit that it's a little more kinky that what I typically prefer, but the love story that is the glue of the story is heart wrenching and made it easy to overlook those scenes that made me squirm.
If you like a romance with straightforward grit and edginess, you should give BEAUTIFUL SCARS a shot. Here's a link to Amazon to help you out!
If you read it, I hope you'll share your thoughts with us.

Anyone miss me?

I hope everyone's holidays were memorable and that your new year is off to a great start!  I've been dealing with an evil, nasty bitch better known as menopause. Yep, the big, mighty "M".  After a few months of overwhelming depression, anxiety attacks, insomnia, and just plain not feeling like myself the least little bit, my gynecologist (I love her) has been working with me to find an anti-depressant that will get me back to my old self. The problem with anti-depressants is that they don't work immediately and if one doesn't help, you have to be backed off of it before you can start another - meaning it takes weeks to find the one that's just right.  Sheer hell and a huge pain in the ass. Feeling like Goldilocks these days, and realizing that this won't be a quick fix - my Dr. indicates that we're talking  weeks to get to an acceptable place and years of medicating to stay there and get through it.

I do feel like we're on the right track with this last prescription and while there might need to be some tweaking on the dosage, my fingers are crossed that we're getting close to hitting the nail on the head.

Let me know what you're reading, whether you have any new authors to dish about, etc. While I've not felt like myself, one of the things I've taken solace in is reading lots and lots of romance!

I may have lost even my most loyal followers after this absence, but I truly hope not. Thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated - and I thank you for your patience!

Happy New Year!
