Wicked Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt

Today marks the start of the amazing Wicked Scavenger Hunt. Yup, the entire month of July, I along with a ton of other bloggers have joined together to form a scavenger hunt. Be sure to stop by and search for clues in all the posts. The answers will be there, but DO NOT post them in the comments. That gets the comment immediately deleted, folks, so be sure you don’t do that.

So let’s get to it!

The Cajun Heat series has been a lot of fun to write. I love my little corner of the world. In case you’re not familiar with me, I write erotic romance with a touch of Cajun spice. And yes, I can officially say I’m Cajun. My paternal grandmother’s family came to south Louisiana centuries ago during The Great Upheaval from Nova Scotia. They settled in and around the town I live in now and never looked back.

My hometown isn’t as small and homey as the fictional town portrayed in the Cajun Heat series, but it used to be. I remember when you went to the store, you’d run into family or friends and neighbors. Everyone knew everyone which made misbehaving a problem. But I didn’t mind. After Hurricane Katrina though, life changed dramatically. Industry moved west and people followed where the jobs went. Now we have extremely high real estate, a shrinking sugar cane farming community and as much traffic congestion as a mighty metropolis.

And maybe that’s why I created this town. I miss small town life. Now that I’m older and not as inclined to misbehaving (while at home. I save my naughtiness for conventions and conferences), I miss knowing who lives nearby. I miss the peace and quiet. *sigh* I’m actually a little jealous of the shifters of Pointe-Aux-Chat Parish (which means point of the cat or nose of the cat) because they have the world my town has left behind in favor of improvements.

Enter this rafflecopter for a chance to win the grand prize which is massive, y’all. MASSIVE!

Blurb:

The_Good_Sister_WEBSITE_USEAfter her mother’s sudden death, Ryanne Myers is home again. It has been fifteen years since she escaped Mount Pleasant and everyone and everything in it. Now she must oversee the closing of her mother’s affairs.

The only bright spot is Ryanne’s blossoming friendship with boarder CJ Richter. Ryanne senses that CJ just might be her soul mate, but the handsome excavator is somewhat of a standoffish loner.

After an unthinkable event, Ryanne’s life spins out of control, and she must deal not only with her grasping, selfish sister, but also a manipulative, wannabe suitor. CJ offers Ryanne a way out, but at what price? Beware: Everyone has secrets in Mount Pleasant…And they enjoy them!

Drama, romance, mystery, and murder, all centered around a little town. THE GOOD SISTER is an outstanding debut novel from Amielise Gable. Ms. Gable presents the reader with a unique love story with a cast of endearing  yet almost  misfits, who each have their own foibles as well as qualities that make them dear to the reader’s heart.

Bio:

Shae Shannon was born in California where she lived until the age of 13.  Her family decided to uproot and move to a small town in Oklahoma.  It was fate, Karma, or coincidence that had put both Shae and her future husband on the paths of destiny and love.  She spotted him in the back of a pickup truck while cruising town, his hot sexiness capturing her attention and her heart.  One introduction later and she knew that he was her soul mate.  Dustin was also from California, and had grown up only 30 miles from her.

After marriage, Dustin joined the Army.  They spent 9 years in northern New York and 4 years in Georgia. He served 3 tours overseas, and numerous stateside training exercises. It was during the long, stressful, lonesome deployments that Shae found she could escape into imagination and majestically teleport into juicy books. Her most prized gift came in the form of a kindle, sent from her husband in Iraq.  She quickly filled her digital library, and adds to it every week.

They are blessed with three kids ages 16, 10, and 5. Two dogs, a hamster, and a fish make for a chaotic crazy daily routine that Shae handles like a pro, and with a lot of humor.

Needing to branch out more, Shae picked up her laptop and began to write, allowing her boisterous imagination to fly.  After what seemed like an eternity, she finally created her first novel that soon became published by Siren Publishing.  She was finally on the path of her dreams of becoming an author.

Shae currently lives Oklahoma, where the tea is sweet, the grass is green, and people still say ma’am and thank you.  Every summer, they load up the family and head for the lake for swimming and fishing. There is not a water park or swimming pool in the world that could ever compare to a rope swing and a floaty.  The only thing that will change is that Shae will be scribbling and writing as she floats on the water and works on her tan.

Book 2: Always and Forever

An alpha wolf, and an alpha panther—both of which are hot, sexy, brick walls of ooh-la-la wrapped up in “yes please, give me more”—decide to pursue Giselle Shalay, things explode in a supernova of desire and need. She is torn between what her body craves and what her mind protests. She is a free-spirited, independent witch who could never succumb to the role of an obedient, mindless, submissive wife. Aiden Grey refuses to share Giselle, whether Brandon Knight is meant to mate her or not. Brandon tries to show him reason, but any discussions end up in blows. When push comes to shove, he turns to his pack and declares war against the panthers in a fight to win her hand.

Can they come to terms with what fate has dealt and work together in convincing Giselle that her place is with them, or will egos and misconceived ideas keep destiny from joining their hearts forever?

Excerpt:

Brandon spotted her from across the room. He was thunderstruck and rendered paralyzed. She was the most magically, erotically, sensually, gorgeous woman he had ever laid eyes on. Her movements were like a spell, weaving around her in a web of delight. When he was able to pick his chin up off the floor, he darted in her direction. A low rumble oscillated in the caverns of his chest, threatening to exit in a roar. Mine.

Giselle let go. Dancing was more than fun to her. It was a way of life. Her witch heritage used dance for many spells and rituals. It was part of her being, allowing her to shimmy and sway all stresses away. She was barely aware of the body that had pressed up against her from behind. The movements coming from her esoteric dance partner fueled the fire that had cast inside of her. She ground backward, against the steel structure who met her sway for glorious sway. She dipped down, entwining her arms as she went to touch the floor and arch her way back up. Without skipping a beat, she was turned and embraced in the cage of enormous arms. Her surprise was evident, but instead of her stopping or freezing momentarily, her mouth curved into a flirtatious grin at the violet-eyed, sexy hunk of meat holding her. She began testing him, intensifying her moving and curving against his body. She fluttered her way down his towering length, keeping her face a breath away from his body until she reached his crotch. Giselle lingered there for a moment, continuing her grinding to the beat of the song, before slowly making her ascent. A feral look flashed in his eyes.
