Fall hit hard this week. Which I both love and hate. Love because I get to pull out the hoodies! Hate because it means winter is coming—not my favorite time of year. 🙂
But there are other great things about fall (one of my favorite seasons). Perfect days of mild weather, clear skies, and fresh air. The colors of the trees as they turn from green to gold, orange and red.
Halloween. So much fun dressing up and taking my kiddo trick or treating. Sports! Football. Hockey.
And school. As much as I love spending the summer with my kiddo, it’s nice to have some free time when she goes back to school. And she loves it as well.
As summer fades to fall and the temperatures drop, schedules pick up, and we prepare for winter I like to pull out some books that heat things up! What do you do when the temperatures turn chilly? What is your favorite season?
Leave a comment and your email and I’ll pick one winner to win an ebook of Finding Her Dream. The giveaway ends September 26th. I’ll post the winner’s name in the comments.

Add to Goodreads:
It wasn’t until she watched her best friend find the man of her dreams that RayAnne Hill realizes there’s a part of her missing. She knows the empty space can only be filled by finding her own true love, complete with kids and the white picket fence. Fear of letting someone in stops her cold, and it’s much bigger than just finding Mr. Right.
James Shaw moved away from Kentucky and the family business to chase his own goals, settling in the small town of Kimmswick, Missouri. His business is succeeding, now he’s ready to complete his life with a wife and kids. One night, one look and he’s found her. RayAnne is everything he’s been searching for.
As hard as James has fallen for RayAnne, can he be enough to help her overcome her worst nightmare? Or will he decide he can’t wait forever, and walk away to find happiness?

Born and raised in Texas, Jennah is a transplant to Missouri long enough ago she should probably consider that her hometown. But she will forever be a Texan. She loves to write any story that will make a reader smile, laugh, and maybe even cry (although you won’t ever hear her admit that she cries). Whether the next story she writes is contemporary, urban fantasy, LGBT, or whatever other crazy idea she comes up with, there will always be love and romance in the midst of trials and turmoil.
“I’m sorry, Ray.”
What? She whipped around to face him. “Why?” she squeaked.
“For that night. For being late. For letting you down. All of it. I hated not getting to spend some time with you.” James clasped his hands in front of him. Her gaze lingered a little below his belt. He cleared his throat and she jerked her head up. At seeing his smirk Ray’s cheeks warmed. She’d been caught.
“I should be apologizing to you, James. It was wrong of me to ignore you. I was being selfish, too worried about myself and how much I wanted to have dinner with you. Everything ended up okay, right? I mean I know it’s been a while, but…” she trailed off. Rambling would get her nowhere.
James grinned. The cooling fire inside ignited once again. “Yeah, sugar. Everything’s good. Shadow was perfect and her foal, Levee, is a beauty.”
“Levee? That’s an odd name for a horse isn’t it?”
“Maybe. I don’t care. She’s named after the Levee Apple Pie at the Owl.”
“Why would you name your horse after an apple pie?” Ray didn’t know much about horses, but she figured an odd name like that had to have a story.
“It’s not the apple pie. Once upon a time I met this girl and I screwed up. So this was my way of reminding myself what can happen if I don’t pay attention.”
Being a native Floridian I really look forward to fall and winter, they are very short here, but if you know how to look you can see the seasons. Yes, the leaves do change color 😉
As always I wrap up in one of my Twilight throws or GoT throw and read.
Again, a huge thank you to my favorite authors for bringing me such Joy
Thank you for stopping by! There’s nothing better than wrapping up in a blanket and grabbing a good book! Even in Florida. 😉
The excerpt is such a tease! 🙂
Fall is my favorite time of the year, although I think a large part of that is that my birthday is in October. 😉 I love wearing jeans, sweatshirts and just being out in the party-cloudy sunny days. The sun just seems so friendly & comforting. As opposed to the suck your breath away heat of the summer. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy all the seasons, but fall is my standout. In the evenings I like to watch a few of my favorite shows, and then get extra comfy with my quilt & a book. Even better for reading is when we get snowed in. My quilt & books are constant companions & keep me warm inside & out. 😀
I bundle up in a lot of layers and summer is my favorite time of year email@example.com.
Gorgeous cover, Jennah! We layer and bundle up when temperatures drop… and yes, we turn the heat up too! Wool socks are awesome, btw–we have some tile floors and those get really chilly when it’s cold! I think spring’s probably my favorite season–love the green and the sense of promise!
I love Fall and Winter. Living in Texas means we don’t get much cool weather so I enjoy it when it’s here with lots of hot cider, soups and chowder. That’s the time of year I enjoy cooking!
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by!!
Gail: I’m glad you liked the excerpt. Even if it is a tease! 😆
Toni: I love Summer too. By the time Winter is over, I’m begging for Summer. lol 8)
FlChen: Thank you! I absolutely love this cover. I need some wool socks, I hate cold feet. 😀
Michelle: I used to live in Texas, so I know exactly what you mean. Hot cider is awesome when it cools off. 😛
My favorite season, by far, is fall and then into winter. Where I live in East Texas, the leaves change into beautiful autumn colors and around my house is breathtaking. And like you, I also enjoy football, especially college.
We have a beautiful rock wall fireplace in our family room and once the weather gets really cool/cold, I just get my kindle, build a big fire and settle in for the day. Being retired does have it’s advantages. Usually we build a fire as soon as we get up and then we keep it going all day. And if I’m very, very lucky, my husband cooks a big pot of homemade soup and I don’t have to do anything except make a pan of cornbread and we’re set.
Nothing better than fall in the piney woods of East Texas. 😆
I like what I read of Finding Her Dream, RayAnne and James story.
I love Fall into Winter because of the cold. I’m going through menopause, so all cold weather is welcome. Also, I enjoy Christmas as I love my trees and decorations. And, get to enjoy my trees as the turn 360 degrees on turners. I can sit and watch for hours in the dark.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for sharing the excerpt Jennah 😉
I’m an Aussie, so the seasons here are far different from yours. I live in what is known down under as the Sunshine State. Witers in Queensland are practically a non event, and I actually do love the cold.
And guess what? I’ll never seen snow up close and personal! So my favourite season would be Autumn. I love that it’s not too hot, but there is that slight chill factor 😛
I like Spring when every thing is budding out and turning green. It’s like a new beginning. However like Ginger I like fall & winter mostly because I’m hot a lot and it helps. I like sports. We have football and the start of basketball in the fall. It is so pretty when the leaves turn colors. Good time to photograph some pictures.
My favourite season is spring when everything is turning green again and the flowers are starting to bloom. I don’t like fall because everything is turning brown and dying. I like to have a fire when it turns chilly.
I cheer when it’s time to open the windows and turn off the A/C (although I groan when the pollen starts kicking up, lol) but my favorite time is Spring…all of that promise of things to come! Nice excerpt!

Awesome teaser Jennah 🙂
I LOVE how RayAnne & James have to come to terms with their busy lives.
I LOVE Fall, the weather is just starting to get cool up here in PA & pretty soon the leaves will get Fall color. The Fall fruits & vegetables will be ready to eat soon & HALLOWEEN is coming 😆 ❗
Thanks to everyone who stopped by! I’m glad you all liked the excerpt for James and Ray.
