We’re going to time hop a little bit in the past now, at this point I am just really hoping wherever the muse takes me, so I hope you all are able to keep up. This particular trip was the start of taking my youngest back to school. I know! What am I going to do without my weekday travel buddy? I guess that means I’m going to have to knuckle down and get back to the joys of cleaning out the storage and sewing items for my website.
Anyway, I don’t know about you guys, but I Love Lucy! We found ourselves staying in Findlay Lake, NY on this trip, so we headed out to Celoron, the home of Lucille D. Ball, to check out her memorial park. This park was right off the water and so beautiful to spend some time at. They had statues of Lucy, a Veteran’s Memorial, and a little lighthouse.
The girls were a little less then enthused by the time we got there, but really who could blame them. We had a 7 hour winding mountain drive, a front seat passenger with severe motion sickness and our hotel was not all that we were hoping it was going to be, but hey! I’m not going to let that keep me down, or indoors, so out we went.
Good thing I brought one of my absolute favorite books along for the ride. This park was the perfect place to sit and re-read the story of how this alpha male found his HEA when he least expected it. This series is one of my absolute favorites by the author. She puts so much detail into her characters and the storyline, that I can see the movie take place in my mind as I read. Sooo good.
If you ever find yourself up this way, I recommend a stop over to visit Lucy. And of course, don’t wait to read this book until you travel! This is one of those books that is best read anytime and as often as possible.

When You Dare: An Anthology (The Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor Book 1)
Published to Amazon on February 24, 2015
Author Lori Foster
The tougher they are, the harder they fall… Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard-and-fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure. Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all…
Official published review:
Saved by love
I cannot tell you how many times I have read this book. It is one of my absolute favorites and began my love of the author and the series. The characters are phenomenal! I love the strength Molly showed, and her ability to rally from almost any upset, while still keeping that sweet, innocent disposition. And Dare is my dream alpha male. He is strong and yet oh so gentle with the woman who captures his heart. The author brought action and danger to a captivating love story that I just can’t get out of my mind. This book is the perfect weekend read and I already can’t wait to read it all over again.
