You know you’re a chatterbox when:

· An aunt says you were fed “yak” milk as a baby.

· Someone asks if you were vaccinated with a phonograph needle.

· Your friends call you “Brook,” as in babbling …

· Your child’s speech development is delayed because s/he can’t get a word in edgewise.

· You go to a parent/teacher conference. The teacher mentions your child talks a lot during class, then says s/he can tell said child is my child.

· A friend signs you up for membership in the On-and-On-and-On Anon group.

· People tell you to “breathe.”

· If you’re quiet, everyone asks if you’re feeling okay.

· You’re given a t-shirt that says, “Help! I’m talking and I can’t shut up!”

Brande from Book Junkie just gave Sapphire and Gold a fabulous review. Here are a couple of snippets:

Let me say this here and now, Penny Rader wrote one heck of a good book in Sapphire and Gold, completely engaging with a sexy and sensual historical tale of love, regret and a villain you will love to hate.

and
Penny Rader has created a sexy historical romance that is rich in depth and literally transported me into the 18th century. If you are looking for a suspenseful read that is filled with romance that will draw you and keep your turning the pages, then look no further.
