Callie should be having the time of her life. She id on a class trip to London. The problem is that not many of her classmates like her, since she called her best friend Katie and made fun of the cheerleaders... while one was in there. So, Callie decides to use her "emergency" credit card to buy a pair of Prada pumps. After just putting them on, Callie trips on a grate, and wakes up in the year 1815.
She finds a caste and is mistaken for Rebbecca, Emily's Long lost friend that should be sailing over from America, soon. Callie has spark with Emily's Cute, but arrogant cousin Alex, also known as Duke of Harksbury. Emily is getting forced to marry Denworth, a man that is thirty years her senior and Emily might have feelings for someone else.. Callie has little time. Will she be able to break the engagement, make Alex open up, and Gain some grace?
I love Callie and her Unique personality. It was great to see her shenanigans and humor. Emily was so sweet and you'll be cheering for a happy ending for her. Alex was very interesting and charming. Both the modern day and past were well done and elegantly mixed together. I can't wait to see more from Hubbard in the Future.
Prada and Prejudice comes out on June 11th.

  5. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – How To Sell A Home in a Recession - Essay Contest

    Pahoa, HI, April 14, 2009: Sheri Smith and John Williams, a couple from Southern California (the wife was born in NYC) who now live in Hawaii, have come up with a unique, pro-active way to “sell” their one-of-a-kind 1,300 square-foot custom, never-before-lived-in home in a depressed real estate market - they are offering it as the grand prize in an essay contest.

    Smith and Williams, as, llc, are sponsoring Essay 101, a contest of skill, where anyone (21 years old or older) can write a short essay (101 words or less) and, for a $101 entry fee, get a chance to win a brand new, custom home on the Big Island of Hawaii. The contest is open worldwide, however essays must be submitted in English, and must be the entrant’s original work. 101 finalists will be chosen and then judged by community leaders.

    This home (affectionately called the “Sweetheart Cottage” due to its many design details) was built by Williams, a local builder, with the goal of selling it immediately and using the proceeds to finish construction of his castle (, a future vacation rental or bed and breakfast. Due to the recession, real estate sales are down and thus, this fun and exciting vehicle was created. Contest entries will be made online at, although postal mail entries will also be accepted. Local schools in Puna to benefit by donation from the sponsor. Essay 102 is in the works (with two spectacular homes to choose from) and they hope to write an e-book to share their method with others to try to turn around the economy, one house at a time.

  6. We decided that a little old weekend wasn’t enough, we want to share our paradise for longer!
    So we're giving away a WEEK stay at the Castle ... instead of only a weekend. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY! We made it “mo betta” 8-)
    Please share this link:

    Aloha and Mahalo. In a climate of bad news, foreclosure, economic downturn, recession and other ugly and depressing words that bombard us daily, an inspirational story based on either of these words will win this custom-built, never-lived-in Hawaii dream home. This concept deserves a look to inspire Americans. And for those in climates of FREEZING weather… well, the chance to live in paradise…?
    AmeriCANS are coming up with creative ways to help ourselves (no bailout here), others (winner of the home) and our local schools (the beneficiaries of a substantial donation who are depending on our success.) There is a 1 in 6000 chance of winning the home – better than ANY state lottery.
    Please see for yourself (an interview on SUNRISE, our local morning news show): and
    Here’s the URL on WomenEntrepreneur:
    We’ve offered Oprah an exclusive to award the home and the donation to the schools on her show. We can only hope she accepts.
    Help us make history and not be a victim of the economy!
    PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD! We CANNOT be successful UNLESS people know about it.
    Feel free to forward (bcc) this email… actually - PLEASE… forward this email…. And come visit us in paradise…the castle is on the front of our community and our doors are always open. Aloha and Mahalo! A hui ho, John Williams
