Spring fever!

I've just clocked the thermometer at 22 degrees here on the sunny Hampshire Riviera - hotter than Melbourne, Australia, so one of my Twitter friends tells me. Phewee!!

And look:

The wild violets are springing up all over the drive;spring is here!!!

The weather's set to stay fine over the weekend if the BBC weather team are to be trusted, so it's going to be a good one. It's kicked off even better for me after reading this fab review of Kidnapped by the Greek Billionaire by Desere at Romancing the Book :

This was one of the most enjoyable and delicious Greek books I have read in a long time. I loved the way the author incorporated history and art into the book. Not to mention that there was not one scene that I found too overwritten or in the least boring. I also loved that Andreas's character was the strong, dominating and ruthless kind of hero who falls to his knees at the hands of a very interesting female character.

The passion between the two main characters was so stunningly written and gorgeously blended with the rich history of Greece, better than I have ever seen done in any book featuring a Greek hero.

I also truly liked how the author spiced up the book with some very memorable characters like the luscious Liz and her Australian beau. That I really hope Rachel blesses us with Liz's story.

Now why didn't I think about that? Hmmm, got me thinking now though!

And then Desere awarded it top marks with a 'Rose that Rules All. Magnificent!!! I LOVED it and forever will!' rating.

Roses in springtime ... just perfect. :0)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xxxx
