Cover Reveal - DEATH AND MR. RIGHT

Welcome to the cover reveal for DEATH AND MR. RIGHT, a quirky, fun urban fantasy by the lovely and talented Kendra L Saunders. Here's the jacket copy:

It is March 32nd, the day that doesn’t exist, and Death, the agent of nightmares, has been demoted and exiled to live among mortals for the rest of his unnaturally long life. Everyone knows They don’t look lightly on important items getting lost or an agent falling in love.

Can the diva-like Death navigate the modern world, recover what was stolen from him (the names of the damned… ooops!) and get his job back? Or will he fall in love with Lola, the pretty thief who got him into trouble in the first place?

The Sweetest Thing Blogfest

It's super ironic that I'm writing this post, because I don't really like sweet things.

Candy? Never eat it. I'd rather eat raw green beans.

Soda? Can't stand it. Give me plain water. Even better, plain seltzer water.

I do, however, have a special place in my heart for Mozartkugeln. You can read all about them here.

I first tried them while on vacation in Austria; one bite, and I was hooked. They are these perfect little round bits of happiness, made up of pistachio marzipan, hazlenut nougat, milk and dark chocolate. I know. Fricken heavenly.

And, since we've got a bunch of sweet romance writers on this blog hop, I'll share an absolutely, 100% true sweet romance story. One day, I came home from work to find that my husband had bought me a navy blue beaded chiffon dress, the sort of dress you'd wear to a formal wedding. He bought it because he thought it would look nice with my hair.

Then, he presented me with an opal and sapphire ring, because it matched the dress!

Really. With sweetness like that in my life, who needs candy?

Now, remember to hop on back to Kelly and Beth and visit the rest of the sweeties!
