So hope to meet ‘old’ and new friends today. Come share a moment, say ‘Hi’. Take a break from this wonderful but hectic season 🙂
Today I’m featuring a contemporary romance, “Beyond Words” by Diane O’Key.
THE LAST THING ABBY MATHIESON WANTS…
is a take-care-of-the-business-end partner. Emotional and financial demons spur her dream of self-reliance and her vow to continue her aunt’s legacy, Beyond Words, a Blue Ridge Mountains book-and-gift shop.
IS WHAT SHE MOST NEEDS…

Conflict and sexual tension ramp up as they wrangle over the shop and deal with Abby’s quirky best friend and the incorrigible resident parrot.

“Cool” way to spend a hot-as-Hades summer day 🙂
Fabulous comments…helpful and honest. As a debut historical-romance author, I’m so appreciative of good reviews and readers who contact me. It’s a tough, competitive market, though, and if you’re with a small publisher, it’s a rough road. Delightful, though 🙂
RG2E Featured Author Nancy Lee Badger talks “Mixing Historical and Present Day Worlds”.Looks wonderful, Nancy! Already had/have you on my TBR list 🙂 Have always loved history–taught it thru literature–and write medieval romance, so yours look like a perfect fit for me. I have a special love for England’s Lake District and the Cotswolds. Best of luck,
