The Unraveling of Lady Fury

Tags

, , , ,

I did a review of Shehanne’s book, Splendor, on my Art Gowns blog. It was totally enjoyable, especially due the period of the romance.

It was here I came up with the memorable saying:  “Never judge a book by its cover, unless there’s a gown on it.”

The moment I saw the new cover of Shehanne’s re-released tale of Lady Fury, I fell in love with the gown! Then, I read chapter one on Shehanne’s blog post about the re-release.

She really knows how to set up a story, and lure you into it. I’ve received a courtesy copy (Thank You, Shey!) and am currently reading Chapter III.

Below is the blurb.

Genoa 1820

Rule One: There will be no kissing. Rule two: You will be fully clothed at all times…

Widowed Lady Fury Shelton hasn’t lost everything—yet. As long as she produces the heir to the Beaumont dukedom, she just might be able to keep her position. And her secrets. But when the callously irresistible Captain James “Flint” Blackmoore sails back into her life, Lady Fury panics. She must find a way to protect herself—and her future—from the man she’d rather see rotting in hell than sleeping in her bed. If she must bed him to keep her secrets, so be it. But she doesn’t have to like it. A set of firm rules for the bedroom will ensure that nothing goes awry. Because above all else, she must stop herself from wanting the one thing that Flint can never give her. His heart.

Ex-privateer Flint Blackmoore has never been good at following the rules. Now, once again embroiled in a situation with the aptly named Lady Fury, he has no idea why he doesn’t simply do the wise thing and walk away. He knows he’s playing with fire, and that getting involved with her again is more dangerous than anything on the high seas. But he can’t understand why she’s so determined to hate him. He isn’t sure if the secret she keeps will make things harder—or easier—for him, but as the battle in the bedroom heats up, he knows at least one thing. Those silly rules of hers will have to go…

💥💥Warning:💥💥

If you’ve never been to Shehanne’s blog, don’t be shocked when you are accosted by a pack of highly opinionated Hamsters! Chapter one is right under their shenanigans, I promise.

Egads! That’s a crazy fetching gown.

The Eve before Chickmas…(reblog)

Merry Chickmas, all!

Rethinking Life

Twas
the
eve
before
chickmas
and
all
through
The
Coop
the
chicklets
were
peeping
and
looking
for
loot
they
ate
all
the
cookies
the
bread
and
the
corn
and
nothing
was
left
for
the
next
Chickmas
morn

the
hens
shook
their
feathers
and
went
right
to
work
chirping
and
peeping
they
turned
with
a
jerk
to
see
their
sweet
chicklets
all
fuzzy
and
bright
they
knew
they’d
be
cooking
well
into
the
night

tiny
wings
started
flapping
and
joy
filled
the
air
cuz
the
meaning
of
Chickmas
is
to
love
share
and
care

Post Scrip:  This poem was a collaborative effort by chicklets, Zack, Martha and Zoe, who, with the backing of the other chicklets, wanted to thank the hens for their hard work.

The chicklets raided the kitchen and ate most of the treats for the party and for Christmas morning.  The hens, knowing that would happen, hid quite…

Marylin, les premières…the first stages

Wait until you see what happens! I adore the way JMR approaches his artwork.

Art et Technique / Art and technics

Quelques photos de la première session, toujours étonnant de voir prendre forme un tableau, moi qui prend tellement de temps à les terminer et pourtant ils prennent habituellement forme dans la première heure.

A few pic taken from the first session on this new painting, I am always surprised how fast my painting are taking form in the first hour, especially knowing how long I do work on each one after.

Maybe I should take a hint from that and work faster, not trying to over do it…something to think about I guess, but I am so taken into putting details in…

Advent Calendar – Day 11

Yay, I’m in Dale’s Advent Calendar. It is a most cool idea. Thank you Dale! Hey, check it out and see who else you might know!

A Dalectable Life

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Day 11 – Graffiti Lux and MuralsANDQueen’s End

Resa McConaghy is one busy woman!  Not only is she a costume designer by day, she is also a photographer, a writer and creates the most gorgeous art gowns, evah!  (Click on her name to go to her website and drool away.  I promise you, you have never seen such magical dresses.)

We follow a few blogs in common – most notably, A Frank Angle and have bantered…

Two Day Trip to Kuala Lumpur the BIG CITY and Some Thoughts on Architectural Photography in Congested Urban Centers

Love this post about Kuala Lampur, by Nawfal!

Behind the Lens

Kuala Lumpur is exciting, busy, and VERY TALL

Kuala Lumpur is a city I always enjoy visiting, and I suppose that is because of my Urban Planning background: I have a Masters of Community and Regional Planning degree from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. My Masters thesis was actually about Urban Planning in areas with Limited Land Space. That, however, seems like ages ago, when I was in graduate school at UNL.

Kuala Lumpur is bustling and always growing. Construction is non-stop. And, every structure seems huge in Kuala Lumpur.

A Frank Angle Challenge

Tags

, , , , ,

Frank, over at “A Frank Angle” has invited us to dance a challenge.

Here’s how it works!

“The She/He Challenge involves writing a story that bounces between the mind of two people. The twist is that I have written what is the man is thinking about her (She statements), so the challenge involves writing the woman’s thoughts (He statements about him). To increase the challenge, each sentence in the woman’s thoughts must begin with “He” to complement the “She” that starts each sentence in the original story.”

❦❦❦❦❦❦❦❦

She’s the one for the next dance.

He probably thinks I like his vintage tux and ruffled lime green shirt.

She displays a slight smile as I approach.

He swallows hard, & his clip-on bow tie falls off onto the dance floor.

She changes her face into a glow as I extend my hand.

He steps on his bow tie, as he takes my hand.

She graciously engages my offered frame.

He holds me too close, and the lime green ruffles irritate my decolletage.

She transforms my leads into beautiful motions.

He steps on my right foot!

She glides the floor with grace and elegance.

He steps on my left foot!

She makes me feel like the king of the ballroom.

He thinks he’s the king of the ballroom?

She smiles in appreciation as the music ends.

He tells me he’s decided to invest in another vintage tuxedo.

She is the one.

He is the two…. left feet!
