Hey, romance addicts. This week’s Open Book blog hop post had me ponder the impact of commercials, making me love or hate them. I decided to examine two commercials that garnered world-wide attention for their messages, one a mixture of positive and negative, the other all negative.

Each May, the animal welfare organization, American Humane, designates a week in May as Be Kind to Animals Week. I chose May 2020 to release the second book in my contemporary Pet Rescue Romance series, Finding Love at Compassion Ranch, for that reason.
In the book, I showcase a variety of animals that receive kindness from the primary and secondary human characters. The book is based on a real animal sanctuary found in my state: Kindness Ranch. This rescue organization takes in animals that have been researched on, including sheep, cattle, horses, dogs, and cats. At times, the group also has rabbits, goats, and pigs. Some of the animals that come to Kindness Ranch are adoptable after a time of socialization; others will spend the rest of their lives at the ranch, being loved and cared for in large pastures or buildings that replicate homes. No matter where they live, these animals are given a second chance at life outside a testing facility.
Darkness lurks behind their gazes. There’s something sinister about their smiles. Their name incites fear in their enemies. Their touch arouses passion in the women they love. They are the DeLucas. In the streets and in the sheets, there’s one word that describes them best … SAVAGE.
The men of the DeLuca family prove that the bigger the alpha, the harder they fall… in love.

A 60th birthday celebration at my friends’ ranch last month brought me down their ½-mile graveled lane. As I drove toward the house, two large, lanky birds squawked, jumped, and bowed. I smiled, stopped the car, and watched them. Springtime beckons sandhill cranes to this location, and every March when I visit the same spot to celebrate my birthday, the birds are almost always there to welcome me back, just as the land welcomes them.

Writing has always been a solitary journey. Maya Angelou liked to lock herself in a hotel room and allow no one to enter. She said, “I have a bedroom, with a bed, a table, and a bath. I have Roget’s Thesaurus, a dictionary, and the Bible. Usually a deck of cards and some crossword puzzles.” Lately it feels like this is all any of us have. Covid-19 has made our solitary choice, mandatory. This confinement has produced positive and negative side-effects. Effects that we are all learning to manage during this crisis.

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want? Interesting question. Obviously I want readers to read my books. But I see some authors coming out with a formula book (read: any Hallmark movie plot) every couple months, and I can’t imagine doing that just to get a book out there.

Hello readers! I’m Fiona McGier and I write what I call erotic romance, but what others might just call romance. I call it erotic because you get to experience the sexy times had by the main characters as they are falling in love.
