welcomes author Helen Scott Taylor.
Let's get to know Helen:
USA Today bestselling author, Helen Scott Taylor, writes contemporary romance and has published novels, novellas and short stories in both the US and the UK. Her latest release is Italian Christmas Proposal, the first in a series of three sweet romance novellas set in Naples and the Amalfi Coast.
I love Radley bags. I have a Westie and although the cute dog logo on Radley bags is actually a Scottie, it looks like a Westie to me! I love a gorgeous handbag - add a doggy charm and I'm in heaven.
This particular bag caught my eye as I was looking for a new grab bag with handles but also a long strap that allowed me to wear it across my body for those times when your hands are full of shopping bags. J
The color choices were lovely. I had a hard time choosing between the red and a gorgeous teal. I love my red bag but I still hanker after the teal color. I often open the bag's sale page on the Internet and stare at it longingly. I'd seriously consider buying both if they weren't so expensive.
The bag has a solid base and stands up well on its own. I normally buy softer bags, but I've found this feature really useful. It's a smooth, fine-grain leather and looks lovely.
In summary, adorable, beautiful and worth every penny of the exorbitant price tag!
A bit about Italian Christmas Proposal: Desperate to forget her controlling ex-fiancé and have a fresh start, Claire goes to Italy to write about how the Italians celebrate Christmas. Leo has his own troubled past to overcome, but when he rescues Claire from the rain and takes her home to meet his daughter, the magical Italian Christmas offers them both a second chance at happiness.
