Good To Know

1.) I started The Deed (my first romantic comedy and the first book to be published) a year after my mother's death. I was very close to my mother and the year following her death was about the most miserable time imaginable. But then I decided I was tired of being down and unhappy, and looked around for something to lift my spirits and make me laugh. When I couldn't find anything, I decided to sit down and write my own. It worked! Emmalene and Amaury's antics in The The Deed had me chuckling as I wrote.
2.) I met my husband in New York in July 2003. I was there because of the RWA conference and he was there on vacation. The first day there we kept running into each other and chatting in front of the hotel, and then he asked to join our group (it was very brave of him. He was the lone male amongst six or seven women, lol). He's a Brit and I'm Canadian and the first two months of our relationship were conducted by phone as well as over the internet. Our first date was a week in New York in September, followed by three weeks in England. He then came to Canada in both November and December, the first time to propose and the second time for Christmas with my family and then to take me back to England with him for New Years. I lived in Northern England for two years. We married in New York and now live in Canada.
3.) I was writing about my husband before I met him. Single White Vampire came out in September 2003 and I took a copy with me to England when I went for the three weeks. I walked into my now-hubby's house to find at least six months worth of mail unopened and stacked up on a shelf inside the front door. When I stopped dead, eyes going wide with shock and asked "My God. That's mail. You don't open your mail?" He looked embarrassed and muttered some explanation about bills automatically being paid by the bank so no need to open those and everything else was unsolicited and he couldn't be bothered. When I burst out laughing, he started to frown and said "What?" My response was to dig out the copy of Single White Vampire and hand it over with the suggestion he read it. The mail thing wasn't the only similarity he had to Lucern Argeneau. There are many more and when he sat down to read the book, he kept stopping and turning a rather startled and even suspicious gaze my way and muttering that this sounded familiar" or that did. I had to point out that it really was coincidence, that I had written that story at least nine months before meeting him. LOL.

    Sweet Revenge

    This was the first book I have read of Ms Sands, I did enjoy the book and will read more of her books but I have to admit that the charactor's at times were a bit silly, but I do recommend this book to others as it has a good plot, funny scenarios and steamy romance.

    Is this madness or love??? Since its Lynsay might be both!!

    Well, Lynsay is back with another delightful tell. After her brother's nearly fatal wounding, she flees the hills of her Highlands and finds herself captured by a well-muscled Scotsmen. Little did she know the Scotsman was bent on revenge. Laird Galen MacDonald's wife was murdered nine months beforet by his enemy, Laird MacGregor. When Galen learns that the MacGregor plans to take an English woman as a bride, he decides to get his revenge by stealing her and marrying her himself. Lynsay's character is no weak-willed miss, and while thrilled she is saved from having to marry the MacGregor, she plans a little revenge of her!! Lynsay proves once again she is a writer that delivers!!!

    SHE DOESN'T DISAPPOINT IN CHARACTERS OR STORY PLOT

    Ms. Sands writes with humor and characters aplenty. In Sweet Revenge, there is a section that was soo funny, that I had to put the book down to recover, but the book draws in a number of lively characters that U get caught up with. Besides Ms. Sands humor in her writing, her stories do not fall about, and the characters are warm.
