I love to read and escape into another time and place. Authors and publishers, I would be very pleased to receive books for review. If you would like me to review a book please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I mean to make you sigh as though your heart would break, and scream with the wanting, and at last cry out in my arms, and I shall know that I've served ye well.
And when my body shall cease, my soul will still be yours. Claire, I swear by my hope of heaven, I will not be parted from you.
I wept bitterly, surrendering momentarily to my fear and heartbroken confusion, but slowly I began to quiet a bit, as Jaimie stroked my neck and back, offering me the comfort of his broad, warm chest. My sobs lessened and I began to calm myself, leaning tiredly into the curve of his shoulder. No wonder he was so good with horses, I thought blearily, feeling his fingers rubbing gently behind my ears, listening to the soothing, incomprehensible speech. If I were a horse, I'd let him ride me anywhere.
"You are my courage, as I am your conscience," he whispered. "You are my heart - and I your compassion. We are neither of us whole, alone."
"Seems I canna possess your soul without losing my own."
"D' ye think I don't know?" he asked softly. "It's me that has the easy part now. For if ye feel for me as I do for you - then I'm asking you to tear your heart out and live without it."
"I do not know if the wound is mortal, but Claire - I do feel my heart's blood leave me when I look at you."
I can't believe it! I have been honoured with a sweet blogging award from Shannon over at Augmented Gem. Shannon is a very talented fellow Canadian who designs some exceedingly beautiful jewellry. Her jewellry shop is on ETSY so hop on over and give her some love.
Here are the rules for accepting this award:
1 - Post who gave you this award. 2 - Name 10 things you like. 3 - Give this award to 10 other people and notify them with a comment.
Now....on with the show! The 10 things I like are:
1) Pomegranite martinis....mmmmm! 2) Talking about hunky fictional men from the books I read with girlfriend Heather! (We are trying to find her a Scottish Highlander like Jamie Fraser!) 3) Blogging....I am addicted! 4) Writing...it gives me an outlet for some of the emotions I have a hard time revealing. 5) Anything with carbs in it....nachos, bread and dip, more bread.... 6) Curling up reading in bed (or in my chaise lounge) with a cup of tea on a rainy day 7) Meeting up with old friends and catching up over a glass of wine...fellow women inspire me! 8) Bling....Sparkly bling! 9) Beautiful little out-of-the-way boutiques 10) My family....3 kids and the hunky husband
Well...what do you think....any other book loving, carbaholics out there? I will be passing this award on to ten other blogs tomorrow. Cheers!
