Makes me want to move away from Michigan :)
Honestly during the Spring and Summer I don't mind Michigan. The weather is beautiful and since I live in a tourist town, everyone is working hard to get the town ready and the lake usable. I'm actually not from Michigan, Indiana originally but my husband was born & raised here so this is were we are :) Have you ever been to Michigan? I swear I don't think I'll ever see it all. We love to travel on the weekends and I've been to so many different places I can barely keep track.
There is one place that is my ultimate favorite though and that's Mackinac Island.
It isn't even safely accessible until late spring to Summer and I say safely accessible because during the winter with the water frozen, the only way to get to it is the ice bridge and NO WAY will you catch me out there on a snowmobile lol. The path is marked with Christmas Trees to help people not get lost but still...
However, once the thaw makes way, the ferries leave St. Ignace and Mackinac City several times a day transporting passengers to the island.
My hubby and I try to make it there at least once a year, of course since it's our private getaway, we make sure to go without our kids ! There's nothing like it I swear. No motorized vehicles, except for an ambulance. Mode of transportation on the island is bicycle and horse. It's quiet and beautiful. There's so much to see on such a little island and plenty of places to stay but our favorite is The Inn at Stonecliff.
So, if you're looking for a travel spot, definitely check it out. Mackinac City. You won't be sorry.

While you're reading I'd like to share my two newest releases :)
Harper's Wish & Second Nature
But, when a Santa’s Mailbox mysteriously appears in the lobby of the post office where she works as postmistress, Harper wonders what it could hurt to send her own letter to Santa.
Could he bring her the family she’d always wanted?

Here in Michigan I'm really saying we need to fling into spring fast because all this snow and cold weather is really getting me down. When I think spring, I picture blooming flowers and green grass but out my window this morning, a fresh coating of snow. Really? I think our seasons are confused lol, shifting somehow because the way Michigan is going, we won't see green grass till June! I just realized I still have winter on my website too so I think that will get a spring overhaul today too!

Welcome to my part in the
Cowboy Casanova Giveaway Hop !
This hop is all about Cowboys...our love for them and anything Cowboy related...do you love Cowboys? Why?
For me, Westerns are my favorites to read and write as well. I'm such a sucker for cowboys and I'm not even sure I could tell you why. Maybe it's their love of animals, the pride they take in their family and home, an undeniable work ethic or how hot they look in their blue jeans, cowboy boots and hats :)
So far I've only written once Western Romance but I loved doing it and I'm so proud to be a part of the Western Escape line at Decadent Publishing.
I am giving away 1 ebook copy of Take Me Home, Cowboy to a lucky commenter who can tell me their favorite thing about cowboys!! Don't forget to give your email address so I can contact you in case you win !!!
Now don't forget to hop to the other spots as well, increase your chances for some great prizes !!

My apologies...it's been quite a while since I last posted for My Sexy Saturday but I'm glad to be back :)
Let's see...today my 7 comes from a WIP called, temporarily, For Love and Money.
Wyatt stood at the front door of the Tack & Feed, keeping a watchful eye on Rylee, surprised when she locked eyes on him for mere seconds then turned and walked the other way.
Having lunch at the bar today? That's different.
And he knew because he was keenly aware of exactly what she did, every day.
Usually he watched her from inside the store but not today. And because of that, he could only assume, she'd avoided him like the plague.
"Does she really hate me that much?"
