Isn't that the cutest commercial? It's been playing every year on TV ever since I can remember and I always enjoy seeing it. That said, I hope you all enjoy a wonderful and safe holiday season! I won't be blogging for the next few days, as I expect many of you won't be either in favor of celebrating the season with friends and family. Thank you all so much for stopping by to chat and read my posts throughout the year. I love and appreciate you all so much! Also, just in case you didn't see, a mini-episode of BBC's Sherlock was released today. Be sure to check it out!

Now Rowen is determined to cash in on his IOU.
Dawn Crandall's books are unique in the Christian fiction genre. A Cautious Maiden is more preachy than church on Sunday and also as pulse-pounding as a bodice ripper. I know, right!? You wouldn't think the combination would work, but Cranda…
The Story: Responsibility knocks, and a reckless, hedonistic man responds and opens the door to love—thus is a daredevil snared. #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens brings you the third installment in THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, continuing the drama of Regency-era high seas adventure, laced with a mystery shrouded in the heat of tropical jungles, and spiced with the passionate romances of four couples and their unexpected journeys into love.
