Cocoa Please...

This week I plan on sitting back and reading. No writing, no editing, just reading. This week I feature all the books I've read since opening the Boudoir and give a hearty thank you to those who've read along and cheered me on.

It's been a wonderful year! I've met some new friends and found some new authors. This year's lingerie has featured Victoria's Secret; AdoreMe; and Old Navy. I can't wait to see what the New Year has in store. I'm always looking for nice boutiques and would love to feature some local vendors. Among the lingerie M2 Vinter Inc. donated a lovely bottle of wine for Liana De La Rosa's debut book.

this weeks PJ's

This weeks jammies are a gift from my sister. Oh how she knows me so well. The Llama pj's hail from Old Navy and the great box framed picture is from my husband. 

It's been lovely sharing this with you. Enjoy the gallery of pics from this year and have a Happy Holiday.

Science Fiction Pillow Talk...

August Boudoir Read

8/23  to  8/31

"Salvation"  by  Lea Kirk

Salvation is the 2nd book in the Prophecy series. In recognition of this special science fiction romance, I've dyed my hair a nice out-of-this-world magenta.


When a mysterious disease strikes the hidden sanctuary of the Anferthian dissenters, Nicholaus Bock and Sakura Yamata are called upon for their special healing gifts. But these two hardly hit it off when Sakura challenges Nicks loyalty to everything he values. And that may be nothing next to the secrets the lovely emotionally fragile Saku holds close. 

These two will have to set aside their differences and work together to find the origins of this disease and develop a cure before the peace between three worlds is shattered.

Jammies by Victoria's Secret

I couldn't resist this turquoise babydoll with an accent of neon lime-green lace. The lavender ribbon is something I added for a pop of color. This is a fun favorite and halfway through Salvation I knew this was the pick for the week.


Neon reminds me of science fiction. What color can you see a Terrian Sakura wearing way out there on the Earth's sister planet Matir.
