book chair

When it comes to relaxation, I enjoy a good book along with the perfect  chair.  I prefer a big overstuffed chair with an ottoman.  But here are some  other book chair ideas – would you curl up in one of these?

The opening scene of this novel will have you sitting straight up in your seat and cheering for the heroine.  Lady Tarian is a force to be reckoned with and will do anything to insure her betrothed honors their marriage contract.

Last week I asked everyone to try and finish my country western song.
The first verse was:
Why do you love me when I hate me like I do?
Why is the sun always shinning in my eyes?
And why is there static on the radio when my favorite song comes on?

Here are the verses and/or lines that were contributed.
Please vote for your favorite one.

Buffie:
Will these voices in my head ever subside?
Did the beer in the tap run dry?…

One of my favorite plot devices is one that centers on an arranged marriage that becomes a true love match.  In this turn of the century Christmas story, the arranged marriage is between Randall Blackmore, the Duke of Bellingham and young American heiress, Elizabeth Cummings.  Neither one is thrilled with this arrangement, but time has a way of changing everything…

The last thing that Elizabeth wants is to be married to a duke.  She is in love with someone else and has no intention of letting Randall Blackmore and his title stand in the way of her being with Henry Ellsworth, the man who holds her heart.  Elizabeth’s mother, on the other hand, will have none this nonsense.  Alva Cummings is enraptured …
