I am offering a signed print copy of my book Without Saying A Word

 to a lucky commentator who can tell me who they would want to share a picnic with. As a teaser, I would love to share a picnic in the sunshine with Mr Richard Armitage. Laying on a rug under a tree...sharing a glass or two of sparkling pink bubbly. A breeze blowing his ebony locks and myself, leaning against his chest entwining my hand through his smattering of chest hair. Just as he bends his head towards mine, and I think he is about to kiss me, Richard takes a bite of my quiche and I hear the sound of "Manda. Wake up. Edward needs you"

So there you go. Have a very hoppy time on the blog hop and I will ask my husband to pick a winner on March 15th.

With love,




  1. Well, I'm going to go with being shallow-Chris Hemsworth. He's just too gorgeous to live and that accent *melts*.... I like him so much, he's my Jamie (of Outlander :))

  2. Yum, good choice Mimi. Hope you discover some new authors on the hop. Best of luck in the draw!

  3. I'd love to go on a picnic with Mephisto from Annabel Joseph's Club Mephisto series; only instead of laying under the tree, I'd be tied to it. Being flogged. :)
    Good times !


  4. Thanks for the hop.

  9. George Washington but not in a romantic way - I'd like to pick his bran about agriculture.

    Romantically? Adam McQuaid mcquaid

  10. My husband, we rarely have time for a romantic picnic together.


  11. First, my husband since we hardly have time to do anything together. If we're talking fantasy, then Columbus Short.

    1. Congratulations Renee. My husband picked your comment as the winning entry. I have emailed you and hope you enjoy my book Without Saying A Word

  12. Hmmm. This bears much thought. Of all the people in the world (or fictional worlds), I'd love to have a picnic with one of Angela McCallister's Merry Men. I'd prefer a supernatural one, thank you very much. They are so very, very sexy. Yummy.

  13. Wow that is a hard one ! I have a few that I would like to choose! HMMM let me see I guess it would be Jensen Ackles! I am a huge fan of his and not to mention that he is so yummy! Thanks for sharing amy bowens
