  1. You have great writers on you list Teresa! I haven't read Jamie Carie yet. The cover of Pirate of My Heart is simply wonderful!!

    Laura Frantz's The Frontiersman's Daughter is my favorite book ever! I loved her other books too, but TFD is very special I think. I'm so happy it will release in Dutch Feb. 2012!

  3. Jamie Carie is one not to to be missed, Marian! I have Pirate of My Heart on my TBR shelf (have read ALL of her books, but couldn't list her as a 2011 fave b/c I haven't read POMHeart yet :)), need to get to that soon as she has another one, The Guardian Duke releasing soon...hope I have that title right.

  4. Jamie Carie is really GOOD! You will love The Guardian Duke (I got to read it early, heehee!) and I can hardly wait to read the second book in the series.

    Thanks, Teresa, for including my book! There are so many books I want to read, but time is a problem. :-( And Julie Lessman's new book is the only one I haven't read! Her books are great.

  5. TERESA!!! WOW, I am incredibly blessed to make your top-ten list with this group of authors who are ALL on my favorite list as well -- WOW!! I cannot thank you enough, not only for including me on your list, but for taking the time to read my books in the first place -- MUCH appreciated, my friend.

    I wish you and all the lovely ladies of Overcoming Through Time the happiest, healthiest and holiest of new years!

    Hugs,
    Julie

  6. Marian, Jamie's book was wonderful! I have to admit it was the beautiful cover that caught my attention, especially with the word Pirate on it. :) Diana, I'm with you I can't wait to read her next one, The Guardian Duke.

  7. Thank you JULIE for your blessing of our blog! MELANIE, the cover for Guardian Duke is beautiful and tempting. If only it were on audio...

  8. DEBRA, waving, Serena Miller is one of my new favorites. Awesome writing and she is one of the most fun people we have had on the blog all year. AND her hubby is alive only by the grace of God so she has this incredible testimony that gives me God bumps.

  9. Julie, the pleasure was ALL mine. From the first few pages of a PMP, I was hooked. :)
    Happy New Year!

  11. Teresa, I'm going to pre-order Jamie's next release. Forgotten Castle Series. As I told you earlier when I see the word 'Castle' I want to read it! LOL
    If you all like her books then I must get to know her work too :)

  12. Marian, isn't it something that small words like "castle" or "pirate" can make our hearts race with excitement? ~sigh~

  13. Marian, I really enjoyed Jamie's, Duchess and the Dragon and Angel's Den, too! Did you know the sequel to the Guardian Duke (Forgotten Castle Series), The Forgiven Duke, is already due to come out in July!? They just write them faster than we can read them!

  14. Teresa, WOW! I'm beyond honored by this list and others. It's quite a shock to me, actually, as I wrote so many years in isolation, never dreaming my work would be read or appreciated. I'm thrilled you like my Roxanna and that rascally Colonel McLinn. Hope you all enjoy Love's Reckoning, too. Thanks so very much for including me with such wonderful authors!
