Hello and happy Monday!

With the sun warming up our days, my thoughts start drifting often and thinking about all the places I’d love to visit this summer. Like Spain for example… Enjoying hot summer strolls around quaint towns, flamenco nights, tapas, sangria, listening to the sexy Spanish accent, and more…

That’s why you won’t be surprised with my choice of today’s tune: Sangria by Céu.  Just press play and you’ll see what I’m talking about. You will be transported to a distant place, dreaming of traveling now!

Lucky for me, before summer vacations, I’m heading to my writer’s retreat real soon. I’ll be sharing you my tune from there next week. Stay tuned!


Brika moon

Hello and happy Monday,

Can you feel the Spring in the air? I certainly can! Even Canada is warming up and it is lovely to walk in the park with some sun and warmer breeze on my face.

Today I wanted to share with you a song Moon by Brika. I love her moody voice and I love listening to her while writing and reading.

Listen below.

Happy Spring,
Madison Lake

small-blackHello and happy Monday!

I hope you’re having a great start of the week!  My dog Pippa took me for a nice walk this morning, and I’m now sitting in my writing studio, drinking hot Chai Latte and getting ready to do some writing.  But first, here’s our Music Monday column.  Today I’d like to share with you a music recommendation by my reader Wilbur, he says “Boys Life”, a song by New Yorkers Small Black, is one of his latest musical discoveries, and he loves listening to them when reading Madison Lake’s romance novels.  Thank you, Wilbur, for this lovely recommendation!

On another note, if you are in Vancouver on February 11th this year, save the date for my Boudoir Stories book reading at The Art of Loving, an adult store and sex shop based in Vancouver. The event is free, but please signup here, so we know how many guests to expect.

Until then, have a fabulous Monday! If you’d like to recommend your favorite song that you like to read or write along with, please send it to me at madlakepages @



Hello and happy Monday!

Isn’t this one of the best weeks?  We’re in between holidays, after one long holiday weekend and looking forward to another long holiday weekend.  I could get used to it!  How was your Christmas Eve and Day?  I hope you celebrated it surrounded with dearest family and friends.

I enjoyed my holidays greatly – although I am still suffering from a cold.  Have you noticed the full moon for Christmas?  It was beautiful!  I hear this was the last full moon on a Christmas Day for the next 25-30 years, so with that in mind, it was even more special.

Today on our Music Monday column I wanted to share with you Tracy Chapman with “Give Me One Reason“.  There’s something in her voice that soothes my soul, and I just love listening to her.

I’m drinking a lemongrass tea with a spoonful of honey and lemon.  I hope the cold and fever go away completely before the New Year’s Eve!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!


Hello my dear!

Here it is, another Monday, another new week, and another song from my collection of songs that I love to listen to when I’m reading or writing.  Recently I’ve been on a streak of watching old black & white movies, and with such a classic inspiration, I wanted to share with you a song from this marvelous gentleman, Frank Sinatra.

This December we will be celebrating Sinatra’s 100th birthday, and many museums, institutions, galleries and other companies have prepared special tributes to this “American Icon”, as they named his exhibition at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. On December 12, which would have been the singer’s 100th birthday, Sinatra’s son, Frank Jr., will perform a tribute concert at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, California. See all the events happening in tribute of “The Voice” here.

If you’re not able to attend any of the events, be sure you stock up your music library and endulge in his voice and lyrics.

Today I share with you one of the Sinatra classics, Strangers in The Night.
