Okay, I've slept since I found out that the book was accepted. Now that it's a new day, I'm still in shock.

Thank you folks for the congrats.

Looks like you've been really busy lately because this is the first time you've posted in almost a month.

Are you ready for Christmas yet?

Liadan

Christmas? I don't have time to celebrate Christmas. LOL!

Okay, I have a ten year old. I have to be ready for Christmas. But no, we are NOT ready. Haven't bought the first gift yet.:tt2:

Well, I got word last week that Reunited By Murder will be released in September instead of November as originally planned. I'll be starting my edits in May or sooner. This also means that cover art shouldn't be too far behind.

Thanks Dani! I'm completely nervous about starting the edits. I have this strange feeling that I will have no hair left by the time the book is actually published.

Oh and funny story... I asked the guys who I've based two characters on if it would be okay to put their names in the dedication of the book. They've both said yes but Lucien said "as long as there are no bad connotations associated with the character." I told him, "There aren't so you're good to go." He then replied, "Romantic suspense isn't my usual reading material so it may take me a while to read it." I then replied, "There are guns and explosions." (those were the only words I said to him.) He laughed and said "Awesome! Can't wait to read it now."

Go figure, the way to get a guy to read a book is to throw in some weapons and things that go boom and you've got them hooked.

Typical man. If guns aren't blazin' they ain't readin'!Laugh it Up fuzball

Ya'll need to come by on March 14th to the Latte Lounge right here on Coffeetime. The Champagne authors will be having an all day chat and I'll be there along with Jenn and I hope Lori.

So make sure to mark your calendars and stop in and say hi and add more books to your TBB pile.

Simone pulled her silver Jetta into the driveway just as Vale arrived. She jumped out and hurried over to his car.


“Hey Vale, thanks for not beating me to the house, that was awfully nice of you.” Simone said sarcastically as she turned to Beau. Looking at him brought the Beau she had known to mind again. The man in front of her was so similar to him.


He was two inches taller than her and had the most amazing hair. Which all the women in the office adored. Falling just below his shoulders, it was straight but had a little flip at the ends and was raven black. His hair along with his startling silver-gray eyes made him one hell of a gorgeous man. He was the total opposite of Vale.


While she looked him over, that nagging voice would not quit telling her she knew him. But that just wasn't possible. She realized it was his eyes. Only an Arneaux would have eyes like that. Aunt Marie didn't have eyes like that, Uncle Claude did. Most of Claude's family had those eyes. They were unique and very hard to forget.


Simone glanced between Vale and Beau, comparing the two men. Vale was just over six feet five inches tall and had a pale complexion, beautiful blond hair and was outgoing.


Beau was dark, except for his eyes, and quiet. Beau was in what she and her friends called the three D category. Dark, dangerous to a woman's libido and drop dead gorgeous.

So anyway, when I get home later this evening, I'll post about one of my baddies from the story. Hope you can wait that long!

Just ask Dani... I'm a tease.:tt2:

Hey, I love Bill and Ted thank you!

Yes, she is such a big tease. She could definately be a Hussie if she wanted to be.

Oh yeah, she doesn't share well either, especially with her Highland Caller cover model Christian Pullano. He's a hottie too and she's married, so you'd think she'd share nicely! Laugh it Up fuzball

Liadan
February 26th, 2008, 10:01 PM
Fine! You can have him! NOT!!!!:devil:

Dani
February 26th, 2008, 10:08 PM
*snort* You just proved my point!!

See people, I told you she hates sharing him! Laugh it Up fuzball

Liadan

You know me too well Dani! You can always go to RT this year and kidnap him.:ph34r:

Hahn wasn't worried about getting caught. There was nothing to connect either him or his assistant to the murder and robbery. It would look like thieves or a rival internet company had committed the dreadful act.


He stretched as he got out of bed and looked down at the woman laying in it. Lisa was pretty and had everything in all the right places. She was a tiger in bed as well. It was a shame that before this was all over he'd have to get rid of her. But so far, she was helpful right where she was. Right in the programming department. Watching everything they did and giving him the information.



It was a pity the last new recruit had been so curious about the international aspect of the company. It was supposed to go unnoticed how much money was being transferred on a daily basis.Lisa had caught it early. Before the man could go to the government with the knowledge he had gained he met with an accident. Lisa had been very instrumental in getting rid of him. He grabbed his clothes and headed for the bathroom when his mobile rang.


"Hello?”


"Mr. Vilkin, this is Agent Claude Arneaux with the FBI. There's been a break in at RusExm and we need you to come down. How soon can you be here?”


Hahn smiled. So it was done. Bayard the good was gone and he'd soon be in charge of the company. Time to do some housekeeping. "Just let me get dressed and I can be there in about fifteen minutes.”



He ended the call and turned to Lisa. Such a waste of beauty but she would no longer be useful after tonight. He pulled a gun from his coat pocket and grabbed a pillow. Placing it over her head, he pulled the trigger.

**A bit of evil dude #2 can be found on my yahoo group.**

Actually, I can't this year :(, but maybe next year he'll be there again and I'll get to. Hmmmm, he does own a night club in Vegas if I remember correctly. I could go there sometime and steal him! hahahaha!

Dani
February 26th, 2008, 11:55 PM
OMG!! Now that was evil. What an a**!

You in a place with alcohol and Christian! *shakes head* So not a good combination. :tt2:

Dani
February 27th, 2008, 12:08 AM
Hey now, I may drink, but not like that. It's more like one or two drinks every few months if that. Although, I could get him smashed and take full advantage of it (okay, naughty Dani's slipping in here)! Laugh it Up fuzball

Liadan
February 27th, 2008, 12:14 AM
YAY!!!! Bring out naughty Dani!:clap::clap::clap:

Dani

Well, she hasn't been fully free in a little over 12 years. She spent her 20's locked up tight and she's finally finding a way out. Laugh it Up fuzball
