What Lady Jenny wants for Christmas...
For Christmas, soft-spoken Lady Jenny Windham craves the freedom to pursue her artistic ambitions, though it will mean scandalizing her ducal parents and abandoning all hope of a family of her own. She confides her plans to successful artist Elijah Harrison when he's commissioned to paint a portrait of her small nephews, because assisting Elijah will bring Jenny that much closer to her heart's desire—won't it?
...Will break both their hearts.
Elijah Harrison finds in his unlikely assistant not only an inspiring muse and unappreciated talent, but also a lovely and passionate woman. If Elijah supports Jenny's career, his own professional interests will suffer, but more significantly, he will lose Jenny forever. Both Jenny and Elijah must choose between true love and a lifelong dream.

Not really art talents, but musical talents yes. Ok mediocre.ReplyDelete
Oh, one of my favorite authors. I've read half of this series so far. Being an artist is what I wanted to do but I was told I had to get a real job. My youngest daughter is very talented and I supported her. She got a degree in fine arts and graphic design. At the moment she works two jobs but one is in her field and she is on her way in pursuing her dreams.ReplyDelete
No, I have no talents in the arts. Or musical talents, either.ReplyDelete
I'm not artistic at all.ReplyDelete
When it comes to the Arts I have no talent, but I do have a small degree of talent when it comes to my craft work.ReplyDelete
I'm definitely a creative person. Love to write poems and bake various delights. I enjoy sewing things and quilting, making Christmas cards... Never painted because I was not that good with a brush. Do really enjoy creating things from scratch & make pictures of stuff I've placed together, items I made & food I cooked. I like to believe there's a "struggling" artist in me that sometimes comes out. If I would call myself artistic or talented is not for me to say. But it must be wonderful to capture a persons soul on canvas! To see them come alive... Jenny's story sounds really good and I would love to read it :DReplyDelete
I have no art talents, but I do some crafts. Love the connections you make!ReplyDelete
No special talent for me....heck sometimes I can't even draw a straight line!ReplyDelete
Ii don't have any special talents either, apart from my love of reading!! Well, that's a talent too, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Zippo artistic talent .. but I do enjoy seeing/experiencing the arts.ReplyDelete
This sounds really good I can't wait to read it. I love the Historical romances.ReplyDelete
I love art I have 1 small painting my Mom did years ago it's a lake with pine trees and mountains in the back ground. She could really paint. She would have been 100 years in April 5th, I sure miss her. My older sister could paint too she did barns and trees, I could have been good at it but I did filet crochet instead. My oldest daughter (19) she took art in school and can draw and paint very good.
No talent but having fun playing with various media with a group of friends. Jewelry making today.ReplyDelete
Don't enter me in the contest...I just wanted to add my recommendation for Grace's books. I just finished enjoying Lady Jenny's book this week.ReplyDelete
I don't really have any special talent, but I know how to crochet so I've been able to be a bit creative that way. I also took quilting classes for a time and I loved that creative outlet, but haven't done any sewing for a while. It was more fun when I shared the hobby with my sister, which is harder now that we don't live near each other.ReplyDelete
None but my daughters are very good. :)ReplyDelete
I have NO artistic talents, but I've always wanted to be able to draw!! Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
I don't have any artistic talents, unfortunately. I really wish that I did! I do love doing some things that are somewhat artistic in a crafty way like crocheting and I love to doodle but I am not good at it, LOL.ReplyDelete
I actually play the flute. I'm not a professional and it is just a hobby, but I really enjoy playing. I started a few years ago when I was in 5th grade, ok more like 35 years ago, lolReplyDelete
I enjoy art museums a lot myself and I never thought about it but maybe my lack of talent is the reason for the fascination.ReplyDelete
I don't have any artistic tallent.ReplyDelete
I use to paint and sketch, but haven't done so in years. Maybe once my life slows down a bit I can resume it....ReplyDelete

I can sing a little bit; other than that, I have very little talent.ReplyDelete
I love to draw and sing a little bitReplyDelete
Sadly no talents in music and the arts. My whole family are all talented i drawing and painting. Just skipped passed me. :)ReplyDelete

I can play and organ or piano, but don't have any talent in the arts. I do enjoy latchhooking though.ReplyDelete
I'm a dabler - I can play a little piano, draw a bit (tho I'm better at copies than creating an original). Have done some nice crafts & needlework.ReplyDelete
None, I like paintingReplyDelete
