Lots to tell you about today, starting with the news that today is the official release of my newest Harlequin American Romance, With This Ring!

To celebrate, Max and I are running a contest. Everyone who posts a comment here on the blog between now and next Monday will be eligible to win the DVD version of Disney’s 1959 classic, The Shaggy Dog. Yes, the one that features Fred MacMurray and Annette Funicello!

This is “the wild and woolly edition” that includes both the original B&W and the color version. It’ll make a great holiday gift for yourself or someone on your list. Max and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, December 11, so be sure to check back then.

I’m thrilled to tell you that With This Ring received a wonderful 4-star review from Cataromance:

“. . . Lee McKenzie gifts readers with a Christmas story that showcases a rich princess and a blue collar Prince Charming. Brent and Leslie will surely win a place in reader’s hearts. With This Ring is a lovely holiday story to emphasize the notion that love comes from all walks of life and all you have to do is reach out and grasp it.”

I’ll be signing copies of With This Ring and The Man for Maggie this weekend at Chapters in Victoria. Please drop by if you’re in the area.

Tomorrow I’ll be guest blogging at with Trish Milburn at Reading, Writing & More, Oh My!

And remember, Max the Old English Sheepdog will be back on Thursday with the inside scoop on Brent’s visitor.

Looking forward to it, Trish!


Super review! Can’t wait to read it! I really loved “The Man for Maggie.”

I just saw Fred MacMurray as an anti-hero in Billy Wilder’s “Double Indemnity,” with Barbara Stanwyck. What a great film. I know he played mostly comedy stuff, but he was really good at playing amoral opportunists, too (see “The Apartment” with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, for another example.)


Esri, I’ve seen the “The Apartment” several times – it’s a wonderful film, and you’re right about Fred MacMurray’s role. But I also loved him in those zany movies like “The Absent-minded Professor” and “Son of Flubber”!
