-Harlow Kane-

She’s what you would consider a tom boy at heart. Sporting gym shorts and flip-flops over designer jeans.  Growing up in rural southeast Arkansas, she often jokes that her first pet was a mosquito.

She’s a lover of all things good and pure and currently resides in in southern USA with her husband, two amazing kids, and fur baby, Rocky.

She is a blogger, PR guru and now author.

She has always been a lover of books old and new.  Read Gone with the Wind at age fifteen and absolutely fell in love with reading ever since. Her reading was mainly limited to what the library had to offer. Like V.C. Andrews, Danielle Steele and Jude Devaraux. Since then, technology has made books so accessible but she loves the feel of the pages in her hands while the story unfolds before you.  She always buy her favorite books in hard copy so that if the apocalypse ever comes, she’ll have them.

If she’s not reading or blogging you can often find her spending time in the garden, drinking wine (duh) at night by the fire, working out or with the family at her cabin on the lake.

Life is good.

-Jolene Cecil-

If you’re looking for someone to sprinkle you with fairy dust and tell you that your book is the best thing next to Wisconsin cheese curds, wine and Jason Momoa, Jolene isn’t that girl. Some people may recognize her as the quirky, opinionated book blogger, Valley Girl Gone Country but to me, she’s my blog sister.

She has a thing for the bad boy vampires, the scantly clad highlanders, twisted but lovable shifters and pee your pants funny romantic comedies but she doesn’t sugar coat things….she will always give an honest review. Jolene is a bookaholic, book blogger , book reviewer and has helped many authors with editing and proofing their novels.

  • Hi Harlow and Jolene,
    I am trying to follow proper book etiquette and introduce myself…I am Patricia Catacalos, an author of 20 novels and novellas (historical romance and historical mystery/intrigue).
    I am searching for bloggers with whom I can develop a friendly relationship and I was drawn to your blog because of its name! My ‘home is where the wine is’ to be sure!
    Please check out my website to get a better glimpse of who I am and perhaps, you would consider reading and reviewing one or more of my novels.
    Thank you! Patricia

    • Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for stopping by and introducing yourself. Harlow and I are always looking for new book (and wine) suggestions. Your book, An Appealing Apparition seems quite intriguing that I book it on my list for books that I need to check out.

      I hope you have a great weekend!

    It is an erotic romance novelette that follows one woman’s journey into the world of an open lifestyle with her former dressage coach and trainer.

    Thank-you in advance for taking the time to read my request and give it consideration for review.

    Kind Regards,

    Alexa Connor is back home after twenty years, once a top Grand Prix competitor in the equestrian sport of dressage, she returns home to find herself falling in love with her former trainer and team mate Mike Landon. Together they embark on a wild, passionate exploration of their own search for sexual freedom and expression. The lifestyle is a completely foreign world to Alexa who must stare down her own fears and inhibitions in order to gain the freedom she so desperately craves. When Mike first introduces her to his world Alexa is overwhelmed with mixed emotions of accepting the highly intriguing and erotic pleasures offered by the secret lifestyle that is now part of Mike’s world. After years of loneliness, broken marriages, and their share of bad relationships Alexa and Mike find themselves on a journey of sexual exploration and passion that brings them closer than they ever dreamed of finding the fairytale romance they once dreamed of as teenagers. But when a strange twist of fate brings Alexa’s past into the mix she is forced to reveal a secret that she spent a lifetime running away from if she can ever hope to find the peace that has eluded her all these years. Mike is stunned to learn the real reason she walked away from the sport and out of his life. Unsure if he will ever be able to accept her choices, he may just lose the one woman on the planet that he has spent a lifetime trying to find. Will love be enough to overcome the barriers between them when Alexa challenges his deep-seated beliefs and commitment to living in an open lifestyle with a partner that can accept him for who he is and not for his money? Alexa has a choice of her own to make and that choice may very well decide both of their fates.
