Do you see the eyes? Can he see me? They love having their pictures taken.

I thought I could get a better still shot if he was sleeping, but, nope. All his whiskers and eyebrows were fluttering in sleep. Can you see his nose?

Max and his untidy coiffure

Max and his untidy coiffure

Max’s beard is in that in between stage. It won’t lie down and instead crimps up in odd ways no matter how much I brush him, especially the hair around the eyes. It’s too short to pull up, and it needs to lie down and form his beard. Sometimes I can get it to behave, and then he shakes his head and we’re back to this. When it gets longer, it will probably be better.

I have to say that all dogs are different, just like people. Just like wolves. A wolf biologist was studying a pack of wolves and one had hair that went every which way. I thought that was funny, and so added it to one of my stories.

Off to write! Been keeping up with word count–20,000 words done on She-Wolf, figure they’ll change the title because I have a man on my covers all the time, with 60,000 words to go. 1/4 of the way done! And to think just a few days ago, I had just Chapter 1, the title, written.

It’s amazing what setting goals can do for a body–if I keep working at them.

I’m also working on 4 Matheson bears. I’ll be trying to get their heads together today–adding eyes, attaching the heads to the bodies. Tomorrow, it will be ear day. That’s 8 ears to sew on, and I’ll sew up their backs. Once that’s done, need noses, and it’s time to embroider their paws, finish their hats, and sew them on and their sashes on. The sashes are ready to go.

Also, we’re having a FB party for Kissing the Highlander. Lots of my ancestors were born and raised in Ireland. One was Welsh and he married into the Kelly family, which is like Smith is in the States. My Hawthorns were also there, and one of them was born on a ship crossing the Irish Sea, then others were born in Scotland.

It is said that the MacNeills descended from the Irish king, Niall of the Nine Hostages. My MacNeills and Campbells were from Scotland, but what if the MacNeill had originated from Niall, the Irish king? Possibly. So I’m all for celebrating St Patty’s Day! It’s in celebration of our Kissing the Highlander anthology!

One of my prizes for the St Patty’s Day party!
Confetti Bear is coming to celebrate Kissing the Highlander Luck o’ the Irish party!!!

"'One

He comes with his daddy’s pipe. You didn’t think baby bear was using one that early, did you? And no drinking green beer either!

I make the bears from scratch and they’ve won awards for them, they’ve been featured in magazines and newspapers, and they’ve found homes all over the world.

Kissing the Highlander… a fun Highland anthology filled with romance and adventure!

His Wild Highland Lass by Terry Spear

Lady Sorcha Barclay fled her brother-in-law’s castle because of his unwanted advances. An awe-inspiring circle of standing stones captures her attention and she captures the attention of the laird who owns the land.

Laird Ronan Daziel takes Sorcha to his castle to protect her and give her a home. Before long, he wants much more. He’s duty-bound to take a wife whose clan wishes an alliance with his. So why does he long to have something more? Everyone loves the lass as much as he does. But he has pledged his loyalty to his clan. Taking Sorcha to wife could lead to battle on several fronts. How can he wed another when she stole his heart from the first moment he laid eyes on her near the ancient standing stones on his lands?

The Highlander’s Charm by Eliza Knight

They should be enemies… But passion and love know no bounds.

Returning from battle to England, Samuel de Mowbray discovers that his two younger sisters have been stolen by Highlanders. Determined to save them from vicious warriors, he convinces the king to send him north. While there, he discovers that his loyalties are wavering and that a headstrong, feisty lass could destroy everything he believes.

Catriona Buchanan must travel north to ask for help in saving her brother and ridding her castle of brutal English knights. Unfortunately, to do so, she must trust in the thing she mistrusts the most—an Englishman. Minute by minute, the man who should be her enemy breaks down her defenses. There is something different about him and she can’t help but be captivated by Samuel, and his steamy kisses.

Heart of Stone by Willa Blair

Riding home after two years away, Gavan MacNabb encounters a lass and her deerhound in a moonlit circle of standing stones. Little does he know the garland of bluebells she weaves and the spell she sings will change the course of his life.

Marsali Murray doesn’t really believe the old wives’ tale that making a chain of bluebells by the standing stones under a waxing moon will bring true love, but she’s desperate to try anything to escape the boring, everlasting sameness of her life.

Gavan has already seen much of the world denied to Marsali. He’s ready to settle down. She is eager to spread her wings. Can they find what they need with each other?

Kilts and Kisses by Victoria Roberts

Since the deaths of her parents, Ceana Gunn has lived in the shadow of her uncle and his family. She wants nothing more than to see her clan the way it was when her father was still laird. But her uncle has other ideas. Ceana soon discovers that the only refuge to be found is in the last place she expects—the arms of her enemy.

Luthais MacKay wants to be left alone. His only interest is training his prized hawks. He certainly doesn’t have time to listen to the petty squabbling of his clan when his father travels to Edinburgh and leaves him in charge. But when Luthais discovers a mysterious woman on his lands, he’s determined to unravel her secrets…one layer at a time.

My Captive Highlander by Vonda Sinclair

Can unexpected passion and a little ancient magic turn enemies into lovers?

During a fierce storm on the west coast of Scotland, Shamus MacKenzie barely survives a galley wreck only to be captured and held for ransom by the enemy MacDonalds. Aided by the gift of second sight, Maili MacDonald, sister of the ruthless chief, senses the handsome, dark-haired stranger will somehow be important in her life. Compelled to help him, she insists on providing him food and a healer to see to his injuries. She knows she is daft to fall in love with this captivating warrior after one forbidden kiss but cannot help herself. With each visit from Maili, Shamus finds his thoughts consumed by the enchanting lass. Can he convince her to help him escape the dungeon and prevent the impending battle between the two clans?
