#MFRWAuthor Hopping Into A Fabulous Summer

Welcome to the MFRW Summer Vacation blog hop! If you got here another way, and want to know more, click the butterfly button to join in the fun. Our interactive ribbon will take you to all the sites. You don’t have to do anything except read and enjoy the ride!

I started off the summer with a trip to Tennessee, Georgia and Florida in May.

Fun on the coast of Georgia. This is from the boat on our trip to Cumberland Island.

This picture makes me think of my book "Fallen Leaves."

Can you imagine the color in fall?

I love being outside and enjoying nature.  I post all the pictures I take on my wordpress blog. Stop over if you'd like to see them.

Now for Fallen Leaves.

Fallen Leaves Blurb -


As autumn comes to the Winston estate in Ohio, Amber Harrison learns further lessons in her new position as keeper for the spirits and ghosts who haunt the estate--and further lessons in love, too. She and her love, Carter Miller, grapple with the fears and passions of new love, while caught up in the storm of ancient family drama.




This is the second book in the unfolding saga of the psychics and talents associated with the Winston estate, a sheltered place where past, present, and future are woven into a single dramatic tapestry of love and desire. The tale spans multiple generations, multiple eras, and offers something special for all ages of reader. A sexy, erotic winner, with an assortment of couples to appeal to most tastes.



“How long before you install the new cabinets?”


He turned on the ladder. His dark brown eyes captured her, engulfing her in an encompassing warmth. She melted under his heated gaze, which ran from the top of her head to the white socks on her feet. He lifted a brow at her attire, but he didn’t comment on her pink sweat suit.


“With the old cabinets out of the way, I need to knock down this wall and tear up the flooring. The electrical work is next on the agenda.” He climbed off the ladder, yanked off his gloves, and slid a hand through his thick, wavy hair.


“It might be awhile before we install the new cabinets. Right now, we’re simply working to remove the old stuff so we can start fresh.” He smiled, which didn’t hide the dark circles under his eyes or the fatigue in the slump of his shoulders.


“There’s no hurry. If you’re busy with something else, this can wait until your Dad and Mattie come home next week.”


“No, Dad doesn’t want her dealing with this mess.” Carter unbuckled his tool belt and placed it on a workbench. “I promised him I’d have it done.”


“Is Grant helping?” Amber stepped around several pieces of sheetrock and stray bits of wood, to the bottom of the stairs.


He walked to the backdoor. “Friday, his classes are over at noon.”


With his hand resting on the doorknob, he appeared anxious to leave. “I’m headed to lunch, and then I need to drop by the office for a while. Are you sure you’re okay here by yourself?”


Amber toyed with the idea of saying no. She missed the taste of his lips and the strength of his arms, but she nodded instead. “Yes, I’m fine.”


After opening the door, he paused. “I guess I’ll see you later.”


She waved and turned to head to her room, satisfied she’d at least gotten him to talk. Her leaden feet trudged up the steps. Unexcited, she contemplated her latest assignment from the family council. How could she achieve such an impossible task of convincing her great grandmother’s ghost to cross over?

May is such a wonderful time to see the south. Not quite storm season and the humidity is only high, not impossible.

Tina Gayle said...

Had a great time. Love the south and all the beautiful coastline. I even lived in Georgia at one time near Atlanta.

Mary Magdeline said...

Love the south and especially Georgia - where I've experienced the best hospitality/service anywhere I've been. Your book sounds very intriguing and I have marked you down as a 'to read'. I love family sagas.

Beautiful locations, and thanks for the wonderful excerpt!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Your excerpt intrigued me. This sounds like a delightful story.

I've been to Cumberland Island, but it was several years ago. Did you see the wild horses? So amazing to watch them grazing in the dunes.It's such a magical place. I'll hop over to your other blog to see more photos.
