Happy National Rescue Dog Day!

Dogs are love

When my darling friends Lindsay Emory and Ophelia London and I decided to write The Last Plus One, we knew two things: it had to be swoony and it had to have dogs.

Honestly, what’s better than falling in love to the pitter patter of sweet doggie feet?

In these three novellas that take place at the same beach wedding in Maine, the bride’s mother’s rescue dogs are always around. On the beach when they’re not supposed to be, roaming the extensive grounds of their compound, even chilling with the guests at the lavish pre-wedding cocktail party in the parlor.

And maybe, just maybe, they give a cupid-like nudge to the three couples as they figure out they’ve met their last plus one.

Do you love your romance with a side of sweet puppy love?

A Fireside Chat with Alexandra Haughton

From my home in west Texas to yours…Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s almost nine o’clock on Thanksgiving morning, and I’m still in my pajamas, drinking tea. (It’s pretty wonderful.) My sister-in-law is hosting this year, so Mom and I are only responsible for a couple super-duper easy things. (Easy, but vital: GBC aka green bean casserole!)

Considering my mom was sick as a dog last Christmas, and I singlehandedly cooked and got the tablescape ready, I’m kind of enjoying doing next-to-nothing today.

My gratitude list is something I keep track of on a daily basis—y’all, I’m not a saint, sometimes all it says is “I’m really grateful for this long-wear nail polish and sweet Tia who always gives me an extra-long hand massage.” But today, especially, I’m filled with the warm fuzzies. If I sat here for three hours, I likely could still fill the list of things I’m grateful for.

Including you, especially you, dear reader. Thank you for bringing me into your heart and home when you read one of my books.

Speaking of readers, I sent out a missive to The A-List subscribers, and if you’re not behind the velvet rope with all the other VIPs, you should be. In it, they got a shot at two hundred free copies of Love is Here to Stay. (I know, right?!) It’s my Thanksgiving story (although it’s disguised as hot, grumpy, bearded rancher meets pretty Park Avenue Princess romance), so it just seemed like the thing to do. Annnnnd they also got an exclusive reveal about a new project.

All I’m going to say here is keep your eyes peeled in December.

Oh, one last thing: if you love that little graphic at the top of this post, you can grab a download of the hand-lettered “grateful” for your own images —> https://haught.pub/GratefulHeart <—

You can easily overlay the transparent .png image in apps like Union and Canva if you don’t have Photoshop. (And who does, besides graphic design nerds like me?)

Holidays can be tough, but I hope you enjoy a little slice of sweetness today.

xxoo
