Welcome to JoanReeves.blogspot.com

At long last, the new blog URL http://JoanReeves.blogspot.com is up and running. I'm still slinging words, but the URL and design have changed.

What a month I've had in trying to finish the template amidst moving!

Here's a string of adjectives to describe the trial and tribulation of packing up our household and moving into temporary quarters for 4 months until we can move into the townhome we bought.Exhausting, frustrating, debilitating, and -- well, you get the picture. It was not a happy month.

Mere hours ago, we signed the papers on selling our home and headed out for the long drive to our weekend home where I'll hang my hat for the next four months -- and try to get back into the world of writing.

Prizes, Prizes, Prizes

There were times I wished I'd postponed the blog changeover, but I went ahead with it anyway. Consequently, not all the pages are up and running. It's now 1:30 in the morning, and I'm exhausted so this first post is going to be short and sweet.

Adam Stanford always does the right thing, but when he meets Catherine Bourgeault honor and gentlemanly conduct are forgotten.

However, what seems like a straightforward effort to purloin another man’s wife is fraught with deceit and the dark secrets of a demented man who’ll do anything to save his empty marriage.

Perfumer Amanda Whitfield knows the Science of Smell. Harrison Kincaid knows the Science of Computers. But what about the Science of Sex Appeal? Pulsing, throbbing, will-not-be-denied Sex Appeal. Amanda, desperate for a man to escort her to her snooty cousin's wedding, and Harrison, desperate to put an end to his mom's matchmaking, get blindsided by desire when they are thrown together.
