My favorite part of Fiesta is the King William parade and fair. No Texas parade would be complete without Longhorn cattle, old trucks, and colorful characters. The King Wiliam parade is informal – where else would you see a Book Club marching with mermaids, chihuahuas and pirates? Add lots of Fiesta medals and fancy hats, crafts and food, and you’ve got a day filled with fun!

Viva Fiesta!

As a little extra, Big Red has given us one of their limited edition medals to accompany the Night Owl Romance prize.

Make My Day – Review!

    

 

If you’ve got a few minutes and have read a book in my His Highland Heart series, you’d make this author very happy if you could post a wee Amazon review!

Whether you love my books or not, your star rating and a mere handful of words (such as “Love it!” or “Best Book Ever!” or “Not my cup of tea”) will inform your fellow readers.  In addition, your review will give my book greater visibility and help it qualify for promotional opportunities that require a minimum number of reviews.

Your opinion counts! Finding out what readers love—or don’t like—is important to me.  I do read reviews, so feel free to write as much as you want. 

Take three minutes, click on the cover (above) of a book you’ve read and scroll down to the Customer Reviews section. Click in that “Write a Customer Review” box. Then click on a Star rating and a Comment box will appear. Add a few words, hit return, and you’re done.  

And I’ll be more grateful than you know! Thank you!

Cheers,

Willa Blair

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In January, I asked my newsletter subscribers what they liked best about Valentine’s Day.  Their responses were many and varied.

Quite a few said they were happiest about the sale on candy the day after. Of course!  As one person said, “..it’s the chocolate holiday between Christmas and Easter!”

Other responses were so lovely and thought-provoking, I just had to share some of them here. Enjoy!

“…reminder to stop and reflect on what you love about the one you’re with.”

“…think about people they love and to think of ideas to make them happy. Whether by gifts or by special moments.  The holiday makes us stop our daily routine and crazy schedules to actually show and acknowledge our love.”

“My husband and I went on our first date on Valentine’s Day.  This day represents the beginning of a lifelong relationship, a committed love, and a wonderful family.”

“…the giving & receiving between couples to each other.  My hubby & I enjoy coming up with surprise gifts & notes and the dinner out.”

“Amidst the hectic rush that so many folks live with, it’s great to take time to think about how much others in our life really mean to us and to let them know. The simplest remembrance  can mean more than one realizes. Valentine’s Day is a day for individuals of all ages, youth to oldsters, to take part in and enjoy.  Just saying “Happy Valentine’s Day” may put a smile on someone’s face!”

“What I love about Valentines are the hearts 💕❤ everywhere. They beat with lots of love!”

“The thing I like best about Valentine Day is that people are nicer to each other.”

“…it’s not only a time to let all the special people in my life how much I love and appreciate them but it’s also a time to engage in random acts of kindness for those I encounter – particularly if it makes someone smile at my craziness!”

Whatever you like best about the holiday, I hope you have a lovely and heartfelt Valentine’s Day!

 

HIS HIGHLAND BRIDE RELEASE DAY!!!

HIS HIGHLAND BRIDE, the third book in my His Highland Heart series is here! I’m so excited for you to meet Mary Rose and Cameron Sutherland. Their love story is one of my favorites. I hope it will be one of yours, too.

A Dutiful Daughter No More
When Mary Elizabeth Rose’s father marries a much younger lass in hopes of siring a male heir, Mary sees her chance to escape her role as his chatelaine, but fears his next step will be to betroth her to a stranger. She has a different future in mind—with a sometimes charming, sometimes difficult and arrogant wounded Highlander.
 
He Owes Her His Life
Cameron Sutherland is not too delirious to recognize Mary Rose is the first woman he could seriously consider taking as his bride. He’d like nothing better than to spend years repaying the debt he owes his angel of mercy for taking him in and saving his life. First, he must convince her to defy her father one last time.

Will They Put Love Before Duty?
For Mary, Cameron has become the man whose every smile has the power to bring her to her knees. But he is as duty-bound as she is, and responsibility calls him back to Sutherland, where she fears he will stay, forgetting her and all they’ve shared. With another powerful clan’s interests at stake, Cameron’s return sets events in motion that will have life-changing consequences for the woman he can’t forget.


HIS HIGHLAND BRIDE is a perfect gift to give yourself. Don’t wait!

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.

Great Reads for Houston!


I’m taking part in Authors Helping Houston. During this event, proceeds from sales of HIS HIGHLAND HEART (His Highland Heart Series Book 1) will go to San Antonio Pets Alive!
SAPA! has taken in hundreds of homeless animals saved from the Houston floods and found foster homes to care for them until they can be
 placed in a new forever home.

From SAPA!’s website: So far, SAPA! has been involved in 4 journeys to areas hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey to provide relief to exhausted animal welfare workers and the animals who have been suffering.  Trips to these areas haven’t been without difficulties, as SAPA! staff has encountered fuel shortages and roads blocked by high water.  However, many more animals still need to be saved from the flood zones, and entire pet shelters are still at risk..The animals in Houston have found themselves out of options, just like the animals we save from the euthanasia kennels.  We will be continuing our San Antonio operations as usual, but we are glad to be able to help Houston’s most vulnerable animal populations.  Those who want to help have several options, including donating, fostering, volunteering, or bringing supplies.”

You can help, too! Click HERE to find lots of great Happily Ever After reads on the Authors Helping Houston website, while helping a good cause at the same time.
