McMillan and Wife

darcy flynn romances

Last week, while on Spring Break, I rediscovered one of my favorite TV shows from the early 70s!

      McMillan and Wife

darcy flynn romancesRock Hudson and Susan Saint James *sigh*

I simply adored their on screen chemistry! And the theme music depicts it beautifully. The show is on Netflix and Hulu and if you google the title you’ll find several other places online to view some of the shows. And of course, you can buy the dvd’s on Amazon.

Here’s the delightful theme song composed by Jerry Fielding from Once Upon a Dead Man, the movie that came before the TV series, McMillan and Wife. This is a compilation of both the opening and closing credits. Enjoy!

What’s your favorite TV show from the 70s? Did it have a fantastic theme song?

darcy flynn romances, sweet romances, joy dent,

Running away is nothing new for Annie Dell, aka high-fashion model Anna Delany. With the paparazzi hot on her trail, an out of town wedding couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. What better place to hide out than the quaint Florida beach town Liddy’s told her so much about. But a delayed flight, mix up with the car rental, then a speeding ticket from the local Sheriff of Nottingham, her getaway is looking anything but relaxing.

Franklin County Sheriff, Levi Hawke, is tired of the spoiled, out-of-control students on fall break, who think they can speed through his county without consequence. After giving a ticket to a beautiful young woman he assumes is just another daddy’s girl looking for some fun in the sun, he discovers she’s his weekend date at his best friend’s wedding.

 Through gritted teeth, masked by a half-hearted truce, they survive the weekend, only to find themselves stranded alone in the middle of a hurricane. You can discover a lot about a person while spending thirty-six hours without the comforts of electricity and modern conveniences. When circumstances further extend her stay in town, Levi pries deeper to find out what Annie’s running from. He knows when someone is haunted by their past. As the saying goes … it takes one to know one.

Tagline ~

Would she betray the man she loves in order to save his life?

 

Blurb ~

Sir Darius Lee is a Knight of the High Order.

But when Darius discovers a stranger in his room in the middle of the night, and the intruder turns out to be a beautiful woman, he begins to question how he is meant to live his life.

Princess Megan of Bethyea is being held captive.

But when two knights help her to escape and bring her back to her home planet, she finds the home she knew no longer exists.

When The Council of Twelve questions Darius about his relationship with Maggie, she tries to flee from The Academy of the High Order to prevent him from losing his knighthood.

Will Darius and Orion find Maggie before she leaves Albion? And if they do, how can they face the decision of The Council? And what about the feelings Orion has developed for the princess?

Excerpt ~

“I thought you said you were here to buy slaves?” The man spoke crisply, with a high nasally voice. He was not exactly the type of man Darius had imagined the slave trader would be. Zavca Moore stood about five-foot-four, was nearly completely bald, and wore thin, gold-rimmed glasses. Still, something in the glint of his cold steel-blue eyes and tightly drawn mouth told the story of a man used to being ruthless. He now ran his eyes over Maggie, quirking an eyebrow.

“I am not a slave. I—” Maggie flinched as Orion raised his hand to hit her. Darius grabbed his wrist in midair with a loud snap. He glared at Orion, setting his teeth. He glanced around and relaxed the muscles in his face and shoulders, releasing his grip.

“Not in front of our host, Gorga,” he told Orion imperiously, turning to give Zavca a smile. Noting he was still staring at Maggie, Darius explained. “Oh, she—well let’s just say…” He took Zavca by the elbow and steered him away to speak confidentially. “…she’s a little tiresome. Beautiful, yes,” he said looking back at her, “but tiresome. Gorga can’t seem to tame her tongue no matter what he does. And believe me, he’s done his best.” Darius chuckled. “I was wondering if you might consider taking her in trade. I’ll pay good money for the rest, I assure you. I want to get her off my hands and find myself some new beauties, if you know what I mean.” He elbowed Zavca, playing up his spoiled rich man’s role to the hilt.

“Yes, well, I believe I could get a fair price for her. And Mic here hasn’t met a slave he couldn’t subdue somehow or other, right Mic?” The Neanderthal beside him showed a toothless grin, rubbing his hugely muscled arms forebodingly. Maggie shivered. “Take her to my room. I’ll be in shortly.”

The 7th Day of Christmas! Finger Foods!

On the 7th Day of Christmas I grill chicken wings! The key is in the marinade! You’ll need lots of napkins for this one! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS                  darcyflynnromances.com, joy dent

5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
24 chicken wings

DIRECTIONS

Mix the soy sauce, brown sugar, sherry, mustard, and garlic powder in a bowl. Arrange the chicken wings in a 9×13-inch baking dish, and pour marinade over the chicken. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Grill until the wings are no longer pink in the center.

If you prefer, you can bake the wings in the oven. Preheat to 375 degrees F.  Remove the plastic wrap from the baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken wings are no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour, basting occasionally.

 

I love books with dogs and this delightful book cover is calling my name! Meet Rachel Lacey and enjoy her book blurb!

Unleashed by Rachel Lacey

Rachel Lacey Unleashed Book CoverWhat happens when you find the right one at the wrong time?

Cara Medlen has a serious case of animal attraction. And it’s not because of all the foster dogs she’s rescued. She’s got it bad for her incredibly sexy neighbor. Her one rule: Don’t get attached. It’s served her well with the dogs she’s given to good homes and the children she’s nannied. Yet the temptation of Matt’s sexy smile might just convince her that some rules are made to be broken.

Matt Dumont doesn’t need his skills as a private investigator to detect disaster on the horizon. Cara is everything he thought he’d never find—gorgeous, funny, and caring. But there’s no way he can start a relationship just as he’s about to move to another state. Talk about bad timing. As their attraction sizzles too hot to deny, they’ll have to make a decision: forget the consequences and let loose, or forget each other and let go…

The 5th Day of Christmas! Appetizer Recipe!

On the Fifth Day of Christmas I search through my cookbooks for appetizer recipes… the easier the better. What I love about this one is that it’s a no cook and can be prepared a day before.

darcyflynnromances.com, joy dent

 

INGREDIENTS:

Cherry tomatoes.

Chicken salad. (You can make your own or I buy mine already made from a local meat and three restaurant. You can also use tuna salad.)

Slice about 1/8 inch of the tomato off top end. Scoop out the meat of the tomato. Fill with chicken salad. Garnish with either, green bell pepper slivers, bean sprouts or a small piece of fresh avocado. If you use the avocado put it on a few minutes before serving.

On this fifth day of Christmas I’d like to introduce you to Media White. Enjoy the blurb!

Christmas Journey

darcy flynn romances, joy dent

I just finished reading Christmas Journey by my friend and fellow sweet romance author, Patricia Kiyono.

Truly a must read for the holidays! Add it to your Wish List!

Here’s my review!

Christmas Journey, a delightful and heartwarming Christmas story is not only inspirational, but also highly entertaining. Miss Kiyono’s casts of characters literally jump off the page and into your heart. I fell in love with Mike Sikkema from the beginning. He is the perfect hero for the beautiful and lovely widow, Helen DeGroot.

I really identified with Helen in so many ways. Her son’s ‘litany of criticisms’ made me smile, especially where it concerned ‘all her stuff’! Hum…sounded a lot like conversations at my house. J I also loved seeing a second chance at romance blossom between this beautiful middle-aged woman and single, never been married, handsome man.

I found Miss Kiyono’s insights on how each generation views ‘aging’, both poignant and relative. She’s woven together certain inevitable truths about life and aging with heartwarming humor. You’ll not only be touched, but you’ll laugh out loud, and you’ll smile a lot.

This story is about family relationships, and romance and how, ‘happily ever after’ is never too late.

5 Stars!
