Will a ghost be the key to his past and their future?

Widow Lara MacLaren hungers for the hunky architect she hires to restore her derelict Scottish manor, but is she ready for a relationship…and is Ian ready for her twins?perf5.000x8.000.indd

Ian Paterson is eager to awaken Lara’s passionate side. Yet, if he reveals his ancestral claim to her estate, he risks losing her and his job. His clan’s history, lost over the years, may be hidden in the walls—along with a ghost waiting for the laird’s return.

When they uncover a room full of Jacobite treasure, proof of his ancestry, Ian realizes he’s out of time. If the ghost is real, it could expose his secret and destroy his romance with Lara. Ian must convince her she and her twins are the future he truly wants.

“Just in time for Halloween! Waiting for the Laird is a delightful romance/ghost story…About 3:00 am I finally had to force myself to stop and get some sleep…yes, it was that good…The mysteries abound in this delightful tale. Secret rooms, treasure, and danger. It’s great to have a ghost story that won’t make you afraid to go to bed at night. In fact, you’ll probably wish for a ghost of your own. Give yourself a treat and grab this book, you’ll have marvelous time, I certainly did.” The Reading Cafe

New Year’s Resolutions You *Might* Have Kept



OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow that we’re well into the year, how are you doing with those New Year’s Resolutions? I’ll share some I was sure I would keep…m
aybe. 

Possibly.

Okay, well, they might work for you, if not this year, then next year.

 

Easy:

  1. Don’t make any resolutions. You never keep them anyway, so why are we still talking about this?
  2. Pick one you can finish today. Put a check in the resolutions box. You did it! You kept one!
  3. Pick one you know won’t come up until December, such as finding a holiday gift for weird uncle Al. Then you’ll have 11 months to do it or forget about it, which is nearly as good.

Moderate:

  1. Give up something you like—but not too much—that’s bad for you. Love brownies? Not a good candidate. Only so-so about snickerdoodles? Perfect!401px-Red_wine_and_chocolate_pairing
  2. Give up something for a limited amount of time. I’m not sure I could give up chocolate or caramel for a week, but one day? Maybe. Five minutes? Sure.
  3. Be a better/nicer/more generous/etc., person. Depending on your personality and inclinations, this could be easy or hard or both, so I’m putting it in the middle.

Hard:

  1. Finish that book! You know the one. You’ve been rewriting the first three chapters for the last six years.Computer_keyboard
  2. Fill a 2016 Blessings jar. This one takes a bit of dedication, but the reward at the end of the year is worth it. Every time something wonderful, significant, happy, positive…you get the idea…happens, write it down on a slip of paper and put it in the jar. At the end of the year, read and recall each bright, shining moment—if you remembered to fill the jar throughout the year.
  3. Get organized! Yes, this should be in a category labeled “Impossible” but I refuse to go there, so it goes here. Every year. My best advice? Start small and work up.

I hope your year is going splendidly!

Cheers!
