Author Pamela S. Thibodeaux is here to talk about her choice for Fall #RomanticTravel and her Tempered Series Bundle. I had no idea Bandera was so beautiful.

It’s no secret I love Bandera, Texas so when my author friends decided to do this #FallRomanticTravel idea, it was a no brainer that Bandera would be on my list.

What makes this town so special and romantic?

Besides the fact that it is known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” (I mean, what’s more romantic than cowboys, right?) – Bandera is seated in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.

I don’t know about you, but there’s not much that is more romantic than sitting by a campfire beneath a start studded sky, or watching a beautiful sunset paint the clouds glorious hues of peach, gold and purple.

Then of course, there is sitting on a bench on top of a hill or having your morning coffee as the sun rises over those same hills.

If you ever want to get away, visit Bandera, Texas and the Silver Spur Guest Ranch, where there’s plenty of opportunities for romance.

Book Review Club: A Desperate Fortune @SusannaKearsley

Desperate Fortune coverA Desperate Fortune
by Susanna Kearsley

This is another of Kearsley’s signature story-within-a-story tales. In the contemporary world, Sara Thomas is a computer programmer with a talent for deciphering puzzles. She also has high-functioning Asperger’s syndrome. When she needs a new job, her cousin recommends her to decipher an 18th c. diary written by a Scottish Jacobite living in France.

The 18th c. story involves clandestine Jacobite spying. Mary Dundas, a young Scottish woman born and reared in France, is asked to provide cover for a wanted English Jacobite. When she gets to Paris she meets the enigmatic MadPherson, who acts as bodyguard and protector of both the wanted man and Mary. At first she’s afraid of the large scary violent man of few words, but when she comes to see his good qualities and many thoughtful gestures, like carrying her dog, she eventually falls in love with him.

Mary’s story is revealed as Sara makes progress deciphering the diary. In the meantime, Sara is courted by a handsome and easy going Frenchman named Luc. Sara has always shied away from relationships because of her Asperger’s. She doesn’t expect to find someone who can understand and appreciate her, but Luc isn’t easily discouraged. And since this is a romantic novel, all ends happily for both couples.

Kearsley is one of my favorite authors, and I found this book to be very enjoyable, as did two of my friends (one a non-romance reader) in my readers group.
