Welcome to the Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop!

I love, love, love autumn. I love going for long walks in the woods along the lakeshore, enjoying the beautiful colors of red, orange and yellow leaves on the trees and hearing the crunch of dry, fallen leaves under my feet. It's a time for sunny days with cooler air and crisp nights. Autumn is about swapping your tank tops for big comfy sweaters and your shorts for soft, faded jeans. It is also a time for winding down and snuggling up in front of a fire with your favorite loved one. Sure, autumn means that the dreaded winter is coming, but even winter can be a welcome change with short days and long nights when you can curl up with hot cocoa under a snuggly blanket with your sweetheart and watch the new season of your favorite TV show. Or, whatever other activity you come up with! What is your favorite part of autumn?

In my romance novel, MEMORIES, autumn comes to Minnesota in the form of a roaring storm on Labor Day weekend, leaving Dani and Michael stranded together in her apartment – much to Dani's dismay. But being cooped up unexpectedly with someone you once loved and then have hated for years can have amazing results. Pick up a copy of MEMORIES to find out what happens between Michael & Dani!

  1. It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!

  36. all the changing foliage! - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  37. Thanks for joining in the hop. It was great to be introduced to your work.
    My favorite part about autumn is that the cool weather gives me the perfect excuse to keep my oven full of yummy deliciousness that I really can't do during two of the three other seasons. I love the feeling of being able to have yummy stuff baking while I nestle in with a good read.

  38. Autumn is like a cool, smooch on the cheek from Mother Nature, with a promise that spring will come again. It allows you express a gentle goodbye to summer. Autumn is riotous collage of red, orange and golden leaves floating, blowing, crunching everywhere in a kaleidoscope of intense of color. It’s the scent of nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon in the air. Pumpkin bread. Succulent turkey. The taste of tangy crimson cranberry sauce.

    Autumn is the time to curl up with a good “who done it” book. Or maybe with a tender romance, or a powerful supernatural with the hard chiseled Vampire lead, I love all genres. It’s moving from the porch swing or from the window seat, relocating to my just “Febrezed” antiquated recliner that creaks and groans like my knees and back every time I sit in it. Fall is the lazy season of life.

    I want to thank all those who made the Autumn Harvest Blog Hop a success and also for the opportunity to discover new authors. Thank you!
