Six years ago October 2, in a delightfully weird ceremony conducted by a dear friend who happens to be a dotty little Wiccan, my love and I exchanged vows and became Mr. and Mrs. R. It was not the first rodeo for either of us, but it’s our last. I often refer to him as my ‘happily-ever-after’.
I’m so excited, because tonight we have a late reservation at a chichi local restaurant. We’re going to get all gussied up and go out to celebrate all that we have together.
The traditional gift for the sixth anniversary is iron. That presented me with a dilemma. Last year was easy–the fifth anniversary is wood. Or, as I like to refer to it, the gift that keeps on giving.
I briefly considered a new cast-iron skillet. After all, he’s the chef in our house. It didn’t seem like a very good anniversary gift, though. So again, I searched and searched. Finally, Google came through for me. I ordered a mermaid handcrafted of iron to sit on the shelf over his desk. A Navy man from way back, Mr. R has a thing for mermaids.
I also ordered a bottle of good Kentucky bourbon, because, well, it’s a great gift. But shhh! Don’t tell him. 😉
Also happening this week, my eighth book launches on Tuesday, October 3. This is the first new one since I started writing full-time, and I’m really excited about it.
The third book in the Dream Dominant series, it’s about red-haired submissive Jessi Crenshaw, whose husband Graham dies unexpectedly.
But it seems that he had in inkling that his health was in decline, and he tapped his friend and protege in the Lifestyle, Dominant firefighter Judd Farris, to look out for Jessi until she gets back on her feet.
A platonic Dom/sub relationship–it’s unconventional. But Judd’s determined to keep his promise to his friend. Could it be that Graham had more in mind that merely a temporary solution?
FOR SPARROW has been available for the pre-order sale price of 99¢ for the last month, and will continue to be through Oct. 3. My purpose is to have it hit Amazon like a bomb on release day, and I’ve set a goal of 100 pre-orders. If you’d consider placing a pre-order, I’d be forever grateful.

I’ve been pushing hard these last few weeks, but tonight, it’s all about the really important things. I hope you’re spending the evening with those you love. Hug them and let them know how much they mean to you.
Happy Saturday night!
