My husband and I had the privilege to visit London just days after the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The city was filled with locals and tourists alike, celebrating the wedding and we had the time of our life visiting all the historical landmarks that I’d grown up reading about in my historical romances.
We visited Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Victoria Station, the London Tower, the London Bridge and many more places that captured my imagination but my all-time favorite was actually a place that we added at the last minute because I wanted to experience riding a train through the beautiful spring English country side. What a thrill!
It was Hampton Court Palace, the sometime home of Henry the VIII that I fell in love with. A long time amateur historian of the Tudor era, I was in heaven as we were allowed to roam the palace and grounds at will. It would be hard to chose a favorite between the Gardens, Gallery, Great Hall, the Chapel Royal, Maze … I could go on forever. I highly recommend you experience it for yourself and when I read historical romances of that era now, I’m transported there and the stories come alive!

In Lynn Crain’s, Hooked on a Feeling, two Vietnam vets get a second chance at love while facing enemies at home. A rodeo star falls hard for a showgirl in Diane Deeds’s Total Eclipse of the Heart. In Kay Phoenix’s An Unexpected Knight, a hero on a mighty steed captures the heroine’s heart. A good girl learns that being bad can be very, very good in Tami Cowden’s It Happened One Vegas Night. Mobsters and G-men, cowboys and showgirls, singers and dancers, and even a knight in shining armor all find that Sin City is not just a place to have fun – but also a great place to fall in love.
Home At Last by B.A. McIntosh:
A desperate singer finds new hope with a not-so-jaded casino owner. Ella would do anything it takes to find her sister, including moving to Vegas with nothing but a few bucks, a talent for singing and her dreams.

“Are you all right?” He asked softly as he bent closer so she could hear him in the noisy casino. His warm breath caressed her ear and neck where she’d pushed her hair back and sent a ripple of awareness through her. She was so out of her element with a man as sophisticated as this one. What was she thinking just blindly following his lead? She blamed her compliance on his relentless presence in her life. It was just so much easier to go along with Mister I can do whatever I want.
They stopped at the bank of elevators where she withdrew herself from his embrace. “Luke, maybe this isn’t such a good idea.”
He nudged her chin up with a firm hand and held on until she met his warm brown eyes. “You need to adjust your thinking if you believe that I would ever do anything that hurt you or make you uncomfortable,” he whispered, rubbing his thumb over her lips. “And I don’t want you alone in your room when the waiter arrives with our dinner.”
“You’re worried about the waiter?”
He dropped his hand and shot her a stubborn look. “No, I’m worried about you.”
He guided her through the open elevator’s doors. “We’ll discuss this when we get to your suite.”
Men were so confusing. She shook her head. “So it’s all right for you to enter my hotel room but not the waiter?”
“Yes.” Amusement filled his eyes as he dragged his hand through his hair. He pressed his lips to her ear and murmured, “You are innocent and sweet, Ella. I don’t trust other men not to try to take advantage of you.”
Ella rolled her eyes at him. It was pointless to try to talk some sense to him. She might not be as experienced and worldly as he was, but something wasn’t adding up and she would find out exactly who he was and what he wanted over dinner.
