Welcome - our Newest Crusader!!

Ever since I first saw North and South, I've been trying to get a certain fan of the romance genre to watch it without being pushy. Instead I've tried gently encouraging.

She emailed me the other day to see she finally watched it - and she LOVED it. I knew she would. Just about all of us do don't we?

Anyway, she blogged about North and South in her latest post - so go over and say welcome to our newest Crusader - and a friend and one of my favourite authors, Pamela Clare.

And of course this calls for a........VIDEO.

or maybe two


Pamela Clare said...

Thanks, Kristie! I should have listened to you a couple of years ago. Thanks so much for the excellent recommendation.

I got teary-eyed watching that ending again. *sigh*

Now get some sleep! LOL!

And thanks for adding me to the Crusaders!

Occasionally I'm struck anew by just how blimmin' lovely he is.

Kristie (J) said...

Pamela: Thank YOU for becoming a member!! This is one group that can NEVER be large enough :-)

Kara: Oh you do, you really, really do! It is just AMAZING in every way - the acting, Richard Armitage, the scenery, Richard Armitage, the music, Richard Armitage, the cinematography, Richard Armitage, the story itself, Richard Armitage - well you get the point - heh heh heh.

Lover of Romance: Well thank you *g* And welcome. One thing I think I can say is one never knows what they will get here. While primarily about romance, on occasion I do go off on different subjects altogether, which is why I added the etc.
And saaaayyyy - since you are new to the blog, let me tell you a bit about The Great North and South Crusade (heh heh heh heh heh) It's been going on since November of 2008 and anyone who has seen it and blogs about North and South becomes an 'official' Crusader and gets their blog linked to the left there under the most wonderful video. The links are to all the posts The Crusaders have done on North and South, the newest of whom is Pamela. In addition, there are some wonderful authors who contributed their thoughts in the early days of the Crusade, including Lisa Kleypas and Carrie Lofty. And since you've seen it, loved it and have a blog, well.........:-)

Carrie: I know!!!! I can go along for a while and kind of not notice, then I'll look at my calendar at work, or drink a cup of coffee or use my mouse pad and it's all brought back how gorgeous he really is.
And!!!!! I will be seeing you in a day or so SQUEEEAAAALLLL

How wonderful to get another one into the fold. I guess it's time to watch N & S again to celebrate. Yay!

Kristie - every time you post about North & South I have this hankering to watch it again *grin* I may just have to purchase a copy rather than continuing to borrow it from the library :)

Kristie (J) said...

Kwana: There can NEVER be enough!! The goal (although I'm sure we will never reach it) is to get every reader who loved a good romance to watch this series. But we can try - one reader at a time ;-)

Orannia: LOL - every time there is a new Crusader, I too have a hankering to watch it again :-)
And speaking of Crusaders - I don't see your name on the list of them!! So you will have to get your own copy, watch it again and post about it so you too can have your name added *g*

I first saw your post about North and South in passing when I checked out your blog, then i went on Pamela Clare's blog and saw her post about it and i did a double take lol. Lots of North and South going around. Then i read PC's blog and saw what the connection was. Loved the final scene - sigh - seems just like the type of film/series i would love.
