Focused by Carolyn Hector

Carolyn Hector 
Hi Everyone! The last we spoke... school was getting ready to start. I'm down to four boys in the house. I'm getting organized and staying focused.
I'm down to four boys in the house but at least they're all at the same school this year. These fellas certainly aren't too happy with it.

These next few months are going to fly by! Did you know there are 110 days left until Christmas? Let the holiday countdown begin! I can't wait to start carrying my bag around. Oh wait.. I may have to update this bag. I have another Christmas book coming out. My book is A Tiara for Christmas follows Niobia Bryant's Christmas with the Billionaire. Can I tell y'all that Niobia is BRILLIANT and I'm so honored have my name near hers! Check her out. These books are kicking off the holiday season just right though.

So now I need to know one thing....

So a little about my book, A Tiara for Christmas, this is the final book in the Once Upon a Tiara series. This last book brings Kimber Reyes to full circle. We met her in The Bachelor and the Beauty Queen. And now she's all grown up with a story of her own. 


Kimber Reyes has been good all year—and she’s ready to be a little naughty. Back in Southwood, Georgia, to help her aunt with a beauty pageant, she’s reconnecting with former bad boy Dario Crowne. Her other mission: track down the mysterious designer of beautiful pageant tiaras. Dario is guarding secrets—and his heart. But unless he reveals both, the perfect Christmas gift might slip through his fingers…

This will hit your Friends to Lovers trope and a bit of Cyrano. I had a lot of fun torturing these two meant-to-be lovers. I hope you'll enjoy reading them. 

While we're on the topic of full circle, I'm at the end of my contract with my books. It's time to crank out more and stay.. what's that word I use with my kids.... focused!
This is going to be my last blog with Smart Girls Read Romance. I've enjoyed getting to know all of you. I hope I didn't scare you off with my stories.



  1. Lovely book cover. You know, it's not nice to scare me so early in the morning. "110 days to Christmas." AGGGHHHHHH!!!!

  2. Congrats on the Christmas duet!

    I always enjoy your posts and will miss reading them; however, I do know that sometimes you have to move on. Maybe you can come back for a guest post now and then? Hope so.

  3. Best of luck with all your endeavors. "A Tiara for Christmas" sounds like a wonderful read. I'm not ready for Christmas yet, since I'm a lover of autumn in Pennsylvania, but thanks for the heads up!
