Coming Soon: Captured by the Highlander by Julianne MacLean

18 Nov

Thanks Ms. MacLean for getting me this information!

Captured by the Highlander by Julianne MacLean will be released March 1, 2011. It’s the first book in her new historical romance series.

Lady Amelia Sutherland would rather die than surrender to a man like
Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of his clan—her people’s sworn
enemy—and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut,
and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia’s fiancé. But once
he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead…

Stealing the young bride-to-be is the perfect revenge against the man who
murdered Duncan’s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than
a pawn of vengeance and war. This brave, beautiful woman touches something
deep in Duncan’s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior’s fury. But
when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor—and surrenders in his
arms—the real battle begins…

Where have you been Scooper?

4 Nov

If you don’t want to hear me complain skip this post!

Wondering where I’ve been? Me too. My Internet service provider Frontier, formerly Verizon, has had an outage supposedly in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois since 6 p.m. Tuesday. Lucky me has been part of the outage. They were unable to give me an estimated restart time and when you add that to all the other issues I’ve had (being on the phone with the company for 1 1/2 hour, transferred twice and no resolution) you get me being pissed off enough to cancel my service (as of 5 minutes ago) and sign up for AT&T. *Me taking a deep breath.* I’m hoping to be back in business by Tuesday, but in the meanwhile I’ll be working from the library, McDonald’s, Martin’s (local grocery store) and Borders.

The funniest part about the whole canceling my Internet service thing…they almost cut off the wrong person’s service. Yep, when the technical person tried to tell me my service was on and troubleshoot it with me so I wouldn’t cancel she was using the wrong address. LOL The disconnect lady said “just let me verify this is your address and I’ll disconnect your service. Blah Blah Blah.”

Me: “No. I live across town from that address. There are at least three other Stacy Cooper’s in my town. I know this for a fact because they used to get it confused at the public library.”

Operator: “Oh, I’m so sorry. Let me get the correct address.”

Yes, I am strange. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at the stupid little things.

Favorite Lines: “And to keep things interesting, somebody told Bobby, Kevin’s youngest nephew, the baby could hear stuff and he was determined to make his new cousin his BFF in utero. It was a bit disconcerting having a kid randomly tell bad jokes to her stomach.” (p. 84) Continue reading
