Beard of the Day


It's Friday! Time for....Beard of the Day. (Or rather, Scruff of the Day, as the case may be). Clive Owen looks way hot in this photo, and ready to rumble!

Super quickie reading updates.....I read Guardian Cowboy by Crystal Rain Love this week. It's a "sweet" (rated G) e-book about a sexy cowboy named Presley (guess who his Mama likes?). Even though I was sad we didn't get to see Presley in any good lovin' scenes (he has that whole hot cowboy thing going on), I really enjoyed this sweet, well-written and emotional story. Now I'm in the mood for some more cowboy books!

Also read: I Thee Wed by Amanda Quick. AQ never disappoints....I got a spunky heroine, a highly disciplined hero who is shocked by his passionate response to the heroine (so shocking!), a fun mystery/story line, and an HEA. What more could a girl want?

Hope y'all have a good weekend,
Penelope

I enjoy a sweet emotional story now and then. I'm liking the bearded guy too! :)

Clive is so swoony!

Hey FV--I def. recommend Guardian Cowboy...I couldn't stop thinking about the characters after the end. Presley is a real hero.

Hi Juju....Clive is so fine....those rugged good looks...yum!

Crystal-Rain, thanks for writing such a great book! I am really looking forward to reading more of your work. So, here is the pressing question of the day....is your name for real? Or is it a pen name?

Crystal-Rain Love said...

Ah, the #1 question in my life ( - ; It is my real name,and the "Rain" part came from Elvis Presley's song, Kentucky Rain. And no, my parents weren't hippies. (-;

Penelope said...

Seriously, with a name like Crystal-Rain Love, you were more or less preordained to be a romance writer! That name rocks!

LOL. I am coming to love this whole beard of the day bit. And a fine one that is!!!

Yup. I get that all the time and joke about it myself. Also, according to ancestry.com, my very distant cousins are Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen. Writing's in my blood. LOL!
