50 Dates cover

If you’ve ever been in a relationship for a while you know how easy it is to get into a rut, to put off making special time for each other and fall into the doldrums. My beloved Captain Cavedweller and I found ourselves (okay, it was mostly me) in that same boring boat and decided to do something about. We agreed to spend a year putting a little zippety-zing back into our marriage through weekly dates. As the subtitle implies, I kept a journal of each date, writing down my thoughts and feelings of each experience. Some weeks were exciting and wildly romantic. Others… well, let’s just say not every week we put our best foot forward.

Here’s the official blurb from Amazon:

“What happens when a hopeless romantic with a bit of a sarcastic attitude falls in love with an introvert who dreams of living in a man cave?

They wed, of course – and plan to live happily ever after. The only problem is that life seems to get in the way.

Waking up one day to discover they’d gone from perpetual honeymooners to a boring, predictable couple, Shanna Hatfield and her beloved husband, Captain Cavedweller, set out on a yearlong adventure to add a little zing to their relationship.

This G-rated journey through fifty of their dates provides an insightful, humorous look at the effort they made to infuse their marriage with laughter, love, and gratitude while reconnecting on a new, heartfelt level. “

And here’s a little excerpt:

Date Eight

Blown Away

There are a few things that Captain Cavedweller gets really, really excited about.
One of them is football.
From magazines talking about football to watching games on television to attending local high school games, he can’t get enough. He’s even been known to sit and watch reruns of football games if he happens to find one airing in the summer months.
Because of his football obsession, for his birthday I purchased season tickets to the arena football games that take place an hour away.
Today’s big date, hosted by CC, was to drive to the city to pick up the tickets, visit a couple of car dealerships since we are hunting for a new vehicle, and then take me out to eat.
Picking up the tickets was fun. The team members were so gracious and friendly and let those attending know they truly appreciate the support of the game.
Car shopping also went pretty well considering we never saw a single car salesman. Generally, we can barely get out of the car before one swoops in, trying to talk us into vehicles you would never see me ride in dead or alive.
Apparently, the forty-mile-an-hour winds coupled with frigid temperatures kept them inside the showroom where it was warm and toasty, and their hair wouldn’t turn into a wild snarled mess, resembling something created by Medusa’s own hairdresser.
Once I started crying and begging for mercy from the wind (okay, I wasn’t crying, but the wind did make my eyes water. A lot.), CC offered to take me to the mall. I was not in a shopping mood at this point, much more interested in sitting down somewhere warm.
Since it was late afternoon and we still hadn’t eaten lunch, we went to a barbecue restaurant. That would be my first pick once in a blue moon. However, the moon was not blue that day…

And a few words of praise from Reviewers:

“For those of you who have read books by Shanna know that she is a hopeless romantic in her writing. This book is a true peek at the hopeless romantic in her everyday life. How many times do we as readers get to know our authors up close and personal? Oh, and you can’t make this stuff up! Cute and funny, this is an endearing offering of romantic endeavors of two people very much in love! Dinner and a movie aside, some adorable ideas for memorable date nights. Thank you, Shanna for allowing us to intrude into your heartfelt love for your Cavedweller!”

Amazon Reviewer

“This is a great fun read…that gives you so many ideas for easy, fun and romantic date nights! If you want a good clean read and want to know more about Shanna and her “Captain” this is a great way to get to know them! I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking quick, easy and affordable date night ideas to keep any relationship spontaneous and fun!”

Amazon Reviewer

“This book has inspired me to try planning some of the date nights mentioned in the book. How fun to bring back some of the romance, to a marriage where the day to day living tends to get you in a rut. The fact that this was a joint effort and garnered surprising dates, shows how you need to put a little effort into bringing back the romance. Trying new things and planning surprises. Way to go Shanna, you have done it again. Stepping outside your comfort zone and doing something your mate is passionate about reinforces that marriage is a “give and take” process.”

One more day of shameless self-promotion, then I promise I’ll post a recipe tomorrow!


Aundy Free Promo

If you’d like to find out what all the Pendleton Petticoats buzz is about, hop on over to Amazon and download the first book in the series, Aundy, for free!

That’s right, FREE!

You can get Aundy’s story through Sunday as a free Kindle download.

It’s a fun read set in 1899 in the city of Pendleton, Oregon. Here’s what others have said about Aundy…

“Shanna Hatfield writes a story that is reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian, complete with the conflict between cattleman and those daring to raise sheep.” 

InD’Tale Magazine

“The author makes the land, weather, and seasons an essential part of this fascinating story! The characters, including Aundy, are people I genuinely came to care for and want to know more about…This book also provides an accurate picture of many aspects of life in the West at the turn of the century.”

Amazon Reviewer

  “What sets this story apart is humor, as it adds a bit of clean spice to a wonderfully written love story…”

Amazon Reviewer

 “I just love stories with strong female leads and when it combines with historical…WOW! Read this book in just hours.”

Amazon Reviewer

 “It isn’t your usual historic romance novel! The author brought each and every character to life.”

Amazon Reviewer

The official book blurb says:

Desperate to better her situation, Aundy Thorsen agrees to leave behind her life in Chicago to fulfill a farmer’s request for a mail-order bride in Pendleton, Oregon. When a tragic accident leaves her a widow soon after becoming a wife, Aundy takes on the challenge of learning how to manage a farm, even if it means her stubborn determination to succeed upsets a few of the neighbors.
Born and raised at Nash’s Folly, the family ranch, Garrett Nash loves life in the bustling community of Pendleton as the 20th century approaches.
When his neighbor passes away and leaves behind a plucky widow, Garrett takes on the role of her protector and guardian. His admiration for her tenacious spirit soon turns to something more. He just needs to convince the strong-willed woman to give love another chance.

And just for fun, here’s an excerpt:
Before he let sense overrule desire, he yanked off his gloves and tossed them on the nearest chair then took her face in his hands, brushing his thumbs over her cheekbones, gazing into her eyes and getting lost in the warm blue depths.

Lowering his head to hers, he only meant to give her a swift, chaste kiss. Heat exploded between them at the touch of their lips. Garrett lost his ability to think as he repeatedly pressed his mouth, hard and hungry, to hers. When her arms slid around his neck, he drew her even closer and deepened the kiss.

Garrett felt lost to everything except the woman in his arms, the woman who fit there so perfectly. He admired her spirit, appreciated her fine figure, enjoyed her laughter, and liked her caring heart. What he felt now, though, was so much more.

He felt passion and, if he cared to admit it, soul-deep love for the girl who kissed him with every bit as much yearning as he kissed her.

Aundy finally pulled back with a ragged breath, eyes wide in delightful wonder. She’d promised herself she would never get involved with another man, but her feelings for Garrett were more than just involved.

Involved meant there was care and concern, maybe friendship and fun.

The wild currents of longing swirling inside her were so strong they made her bones ache. The emotions Garrett stirred in her were much, much more than she ever imagined feeling for anyone and most definitely beyond being merely involved.

“Garrett, I… you…” she said, unable to think with the delightful tingle of his kisses still riding her lips. She couldn’t believe he’d kissed her. Or that she’d kissed him in return.

Never, not once, had any kiss ever made her feel like her heart would pound right out of her chest. Her stomach felt light and her knees weak while she scrambled to regain the ability to have a coherent thought. How could one kiss, one magnificent kiss, affect her so?
