Mini Blog Tour

Happy Cyber Monday Everyone!

Today is the first day of my mini blog tour for His Reluctant Bodyguard. I'll have six blog posts in the next couple of weeks and here's the schedule:

 11/26 – Romance Reviews Today

11/28 - Long & Short of It Reviews

11/29 – Literary Nymphs

11/30 – MamaKitty Reviews

12/3 – The Pen & Muse

12/4 – You Gotta Read Reviews

I hope you'll have time to pop in and leave a few comments. I'm giving away free downloads of His Reluctant Bodyguard at every stop. Plus at the end of the tour, I'll give a $20 gift card (winners choice of Amazon or Barnes & Noble) to one lucky commenter. I'd love for the winner to be one of YOU, my loyal followers!

Hope to see you there.

Kaua'i Part 3 North Shore

Okay, I'm wishing I was back in beautiful, warm Hawaii, so here's one more round of piccies from my recent (too short) stay on Kaua'i.

These shots are from the north shore of the island and its famous Hanalei Bay. There were "dangerous surf" advisories the day we visited, but is that not the most gorgeous water you've ever seen?!?!

And here's a piccie to show you what Kaua'i is called "the garden isle." And if the mountains in the background look familiar, these are part of the Napali coast, made famous by those aerial shots in the movie Jurassic Park!

Finally, one more shot of the beautiful water and sky... That tiny little building on the very end of the bluff is the Kilauea Lighthouse. It was built in 1913 and is said to be on the northern most point of the island. It was being refurbished (no doubt for its 100 year anniversary next year) and the road was also undergoing construction, so this was as close as we chose to go.

I can't imagine what life was like for the original inhabitants so far away from everything.

Would you like to live in such an isolated area? Aunty will take a pass on this one -- too far into town for pizza and Pepsi!
