MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!! 🎄🎄🎄❄️❄️❄️ I’m super-late today, and it’s not why you think… You’d think that it would be a fun-filled Christmas morning, but actually, my electricity went out early yesterday evening due to bad weather that we had, and just finally came back on this morning.
Luckily I’m prepared for hurricanes (sort of… LOL!!) so I pulled out my battery operated lanterns, lit up a Yankee Candle, and pulled out a teeny tin can sounding battery operated radio, and slept to the sound of that. Luckily radio stations were playing Christmas songs all night, so it was sort of peaceful anyway.
And now… I’m working on this post as we speak. 😉

3. Niccolò’s character showed up in my imagination sitting on his miraculous Andalusian stallion. I had very little impact. He came to me fully furnished, overpowering, and set the pace. I could only follow and write everything down as it took place in my consciousness. He is a loner, very emotional, and he has a giant heart. But Niccolò isn’t even aware that hidden from view he has also some dark, sinister and a bit disturbing traits. I find men like that fascinating.
Hey Guys! I’ve just read Nothing in my Heart by Peri Elizabeth Scott and Arranged: A clean billionaire romance by Trisha Grace. Hero hates being married to h for some reason, but then there is a turning point. From then H starts to grovel.
