Hey all, just to let you know, Samantha James is having a big, I mean, huge contest extravaganza to celebrate the release of her new book, The Seduction of an Unknown Lady. Get thyself over there and enter. She’s giving away tons of books, coverflats and some really cool grand prizes nearly every day.

This all started about a week ago when my son’s teacher put out a call for … Read more »

I found it rather vexing that anyone would find it intolerable to watch all six hours of P&P. Really, why would you have friends like that?
So I have to ask, did any of those sound familiar to you? Seeing that I was called “Lizzy” as a child, I don’t find it odd at all that one would want to be called that. But … Read more »
