Long Time Coming (Part Two)

I promised to tell y’all about the rest of RomantiCon and I will.

See, even though the workshop happened on Friday, our two male blow-up dolls, Tyrone and John (recently renamed to Juan Diego), became an instant conference sensation. They’re suave. They have facial hair as well as chest hair. And nothing else. But that doesn’t stop them from challenging cavemen and trying to romance the ladies.

But before we even made it to the workshop, Tyrone, Tammy, John (Juan Diego) and Judy had a little fun. We left them in bed together and scared housekeeping who thought they’d walked in on an intimate moment.

For those who attended the workshop and were thinking we just threw some positions out there for y’all to fail. Think again. Before we headed out with the gang, we ran them through their paces.

 

Even Desiree Holt enjoyed the boys. Mostly because she said they’re the perfect men. Mostly. I’m guessing you can figure out what would make them imperfect…

Griffin felt bad for John, I mean Juan Diego because he’s a complete sub and was so readily overlooked…

We had a trivia night after Bingo on the last night of the conference and the losing team had to get motorboated by Tyrone. Who rolls like that.

Needless to say we’ve been asked if the boys were coming back next year. I’m not sure. And if you’re worried about the girls…Well, you should be. Tammy went home with Jose after the workshop and we haven’t seen her since. But Judy was given a job with EC.

What did I come away with from this conference? Avoid skirts. Bring blow-up dolls next year. Have a blast. And try not to spend so much time on my knees!

The Cabal of Hotness minus Piper and Sky

Get your minds out of the gutter! I meant, nearly every picture I took was of me on my knees in some way or another. Sheesh!

Before I let you go, I’m over at Close Encounters with the Night Kind today for Paranormal Speed Dating. Go check it out!

A Long Time Coming (Part One)

It’s been two weeks since RomantiCon and I’m sure y’all were all wondering where my review was. Well, life gets crazy. I swear, since the beginning of October, I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. By the way, do chickens really run around after their heads are cut off? I may have grown up in the country, but we didn’t have chickens. My uncle did, but those little fuckers were mean and I never went around them. I left that to my brother and cousins. Cannon fodder.

Anyway, RomantiCon. Le sigh. Oh RomantiCon. I wish you could last for longer than four days. Honestly, I think I told Lea Barrymire that I wished life was RomantiCon interspersed with writing and reading and family time. Why do we have to come back to the real world after such a great, long weekend? Why? (Imagine me falling to my knees screaming this to the sky. Because I can be melodramatic too.)

I got there on Wednesday, arriving a day before the actual conference started. First off, let me just say I had a layover in Tampa, had about three Bloody Mary’s with this 80-something year old lady who was on her way to Baltimore for the Ravens’ game. I asked who they were playing and she said, “I don’t know, I’m just going to party.” Hell yeah! I had to have drinks with her after that. So by the time I got to Ohio, I was feeling pretty good. Found the shuttle and settled myself in the middle row while the driver went to find other passengers headed to the hotel.

But when he returned, it was with seven…Cavemen. Now when I’m traveling, I’m not in Danica mode. I’m in me mode and me, I mean I don’t dress up, wear just enough makeup to not scare little children and my hair is always in a pony-tail. So you can imagine my horror when I look up to see the seven buff, attractive Ellora’s Cave cover models headed my way like they were strolling out of a Quentin Tarantino. You know, slow motion, the wind whipping around them, shades on…cue the awesome soundtrack.

The driver says, “I have more people than I thought, maybe you’d like to take the passenger seat?”

Y’all, I jumped out of that van so fast I probably looked like someone had pushed me out. All I could picture was me being squished on that seat surrounded by muscles while looking like holy hell and it was enough motivation to get me moving faster than I’ve moved since my brother kicked me in the nose and ran away from me. I caught him, by the way. Anyway, I was safely seated in the passenger seat, buckled up and smiling brightly when seven very muscled men forced themselves into the van. With Aline Hunter perched on the stool between me and the driver. Good. God.

This is trouble waiting to happen. And it was just the first day of the conference!

I’m not going to give a blow-by-blow assessment of the whole conference because I have pictures for that. Yes, pictures. But, I will say that I really wish it wouldn’t have ended. And there were some highlights for the conference. Mainly me trying to take out three cavemen during one of the group shots on Bollywood night. Yeah. Totally. Bad shoulder + saree + kneeling to take a picture = Danica is stuck on the ground. I may have used Rodney’s broad shoulder to hoist myself to my feet wherein my saree fell apart right there on the stage. Yup, it started unraveling. Thank god I was wearing full on clothes underneath. For everyone’s sake.

Before the sauri and knock-down-the-cavemen moment

I did two workshops this year. The first one was “There’s an App For That” and OMG, we had so much friggin’ fun! I mean, seriously, we had so much fun I think I want to do it again next year. Slightly different of course, but look for yourself!

From left to right, Lea, Me, Jose, Ramrod, Griffin and Cara

Two of the teams trying to get the position right with the aid of Tyrone, Tammy, John and Judy…(The blowup dolls)

We had guest judges, Desiree Holt, Joey Hill and random audience participant Nancy overseeing the antics

Then Saturday, I took my turn with the cavemen. Okay, for two days in a row, there are photo shoots. The cavemen are made available for “book cover” like pictures with the registrants of the conference. Last year I took two pictures and I was so nervous and scared and ecstatic, I thought I was going to pass out. This year, I was a little more comfortable. Until I got up there.

You want me to what?

        

This was after Daivd grabbed my hair because “I know it gets in the way.” Um.

Then I become a giggling mess…

 

A hysterical giggling mess because David, the lovely man behind me, began to hump me

This is the final shot. In the others I was laughing too hard for you to see anything but my mouth.

Tomorrow, I’ll continue the saga of RomantiCon as told by blow-up dolls. Needless to say, we had a blast and I’m already gearing up for next year. Oh, what am I saying? I was ready for RomantiCon 2014 as I was checking out of the hotel on Monday morning. It’s the best fun you can have with…well, I was going to say with your clothes on, but mine fell off at Bollywood and the Cavemen walk around half-clothed most of the time. Well, it’s still fun.

Bio:

I live in Northern NH, in my hometown. I have enjoyed reading and writing since I was a young child and wrote poetry since I can remember. Through my school years, I took every opportunity to take a literature or creative writing class.  I worked in finance for 28+ years until Feb. 2012 when the company downsized and I lost my job.  The opportunity to pursue a lifelong dream of writing a novel came about when a Facebook friend encouraged me to try after reading a couple blurbs I spit out upon being asked some advice!  I took my vivid imagination, my gift of words which I attribute to God, and wrote my first novel Another Man’s Treasure.  Admittedly, I fell in love with my own characters and continued their story with my second novel Undiscovered Treasure.

I write romance/erotica and at some point in the future want to try my hand at paranormal and adventure/action.  My biggest inspiration is my sister Jennifer.  She has stood behind me all the way and given me so much emotional support.  Along with her, I have some amazing friends who I refer to as “my cheerleaders”.  They keep me motivated along my writing adventure.  When I am not writing, I have to admit I am an electronic junkie.  If it has a push button, I either have it or want it!

It had been a long time since Miranda lived in this white picket fence, one horse town.  Willow, a sleepy little town located in the Shenandoah Mountains of Virginia, where Miranda called home as a child, held many memories of her adolescence…and a ghost or two.  After her parents died in a car accident when she was 15, she was raised by her brother David.  Miranda felt completely lost without her parents.  David did the best her could, but no one could replace them.  They were the epicenter of her life.

Shortly after her 18th birthday, she moved to the west coast. Los Angeles, to be exact…The City of Angels.  Lights, excitement and a new career awaited her and she wanted it all.  LA held a real estate job she loved, a night life she craved.  Even so, she was compelled to come back after all that happened in LA.

Driving into town, she started to daydream, and immediately Hank flooded her brain.  Miranda shook her head trying to remove him from her memories, but dammit he followed her everywhere! Hank always said she would never shake him, but for fuck’s sake she sure as hell was going to try.

Ross lifted her chin once again and this time kissed her hard.  His hand gravitated up her body and rested on her breast.  Francine moaned against his mouth as their tongues tasted each other.  She could feel his erection grow and press against her. She reached her hand down and rubbed it through his jeans.  Ross groaned deep in his throat and lifted his lips from their kiss enough to speak.

“Jesus, Frannie, I want you so fucking bad.”

“Let’s go back to my apartment.”

“With your parents downstairs?  Not happening.  I passed the parent test earlier.  That would ruin my reputation of being a good guy.”

“Oh my GOD! Are you serious?”  Francine started to laugh and couldn’t stop.  “I love a guy who can make me laugh!”

“Laughing at me, are you?  Let’s see what I can do to correct that.”  Ross grabbed Francine around the waist and threw her over his shoulder.  She squealed and thrashed, but he held her firm. “Still laughing?”

“I can’t help it!  Are you afraid to rob me of my virtue?”   Ross slapped her on the ass and laughed.  “Ouch!  No fair, I can’t fight back.”

“Exactly.  Still feel like laughing?  You are light as a feather and my hand is barely warmed up.”  Francine giggled and tried to cover her mouth so Ross couldn’t hear, but her whole body shook.  Ross rubbed her ass in a circle and spanked her again. “How’s that?  Still laughing, Frannie?  I can stand here and rub your ass all night.”

Amy and Brett have been friends since they were kids; and their friendship has withstood the test of time. But can it withstand Brett’s fiancée, Vanessa?

As the big day draws closer, Brett begins to think that marrying Vanessa might be a bad idea. She wants him to give up Amy. Completely. Will he give up his best friend for the woman he’s supposed to marry?

Amy King is heartbroken to learn that Brett is marrying another woman. But, when Brett is jilted at the altar, he begs Amy to go on his honeymoon with him. A week on a tropical island with her best friend, the man she’s fantasized about for years is a dream come true for Amy. But when Brett suggests crossing the line from friends to lovers, Amy is reluctant. Will she risk years of friendship for one night of passion?

**Adult Excerpt** 

Amy awoke early the next morning, wanting to get out of bed and dressed before Brett woke. She allowed herself a moment to admire his naked body. He was gorgeous, sexy, and holy hell did he know what he was doing in the bedroom. She closed her eyes and let the memory of last night fill her mind. Her fantasies did not do the man justice. Holy crap, he was fantastic. And big. Good God, he had the biggest cock she’d ever seen. But their one night was over and all she had now were her memories of the best sex of her life. With a sad sigh, she gently tried to ease out of bed.

            Before she got too far, Brett reached out and grabbed her around the waist. In one swift movement, he pulled her to him, rolled her onto her back, spread her legs with his knees, and pushed into her. Then he just stopped.

“Brett, what are you doing?” she gasped with surprise—and pleasure.

Without a word, he rolled them over so that she was on top of him. Instinctively, she brought her knees up to rest on either side of his waist and straddled him. He put his hand on the back of her head and brought her down to his lips, and kissed her slowly. She moaned into his mouth, the desire to move on him, to ride him was overwhelming.

“Brett, no, we agreed. One night, remember?” She looked down at him, but made no effort to move.

“One night wasn’t enough, Amy. I want more.” His voice was deep, heavy with sleep, and sexy as hell. He ran his hands down her back and gripped her ass, squeezed her cheeks, and then pushed her down on his cock as he lifted his hips to meet her.

“Oh, God,” she moaned. Christ, how was she supposed to think when he was buried inside of her?

“The choice is yours again,” he said, kneading her ass in his hands. “You can get up and we’ll move on like last night never happened, or we can do this again.” He rotated his hips ever so slightly, just enough so that she felt the movement.

“Brett.” She tried to sound serious, but it came out as needy. Amy put her hands on either side of his head and stared at him. His eyes weren’t the normal crisp blue that she was used to seeing. No, they were hazy and filled with desire. How much more did he want? Once? Another full night? It was one of those questions that she wasn’t sure she really wanted an answer to. So, she did the only thing she could – she eased her body up and off him.

Brett grabbed her waist. “Amy, please,” he pleaded.

Hmm.

Then there’s the tattoos. I know Dr. Phil said only thugs had tattoos in his day, but this is 2013 and tattoos are acceptable and I love them on sexy men.

The Cabal of Hotness has been a specatular group in 2013. We wrote 21 short stories together, put out in 5 anthologies and we won an award for it. That’s not bad considering we started off as a group of ladies goofing off in the bar at RomantiCon 2013. It’s been a lot of fun and even if we don’t write more spoofs, I know I’ll always have that group to fall back on when I’m dancing on the ledge of insanity.

So we joined forces with one of our favorite blogs, Close Encounters With The Night Kind and put together this hop. There are at least 70 blogs participating, so be sure to visit all of them since we’re all giving away individual prizes as well as giving you chances to win the grand prize.

We have two rafflecopters for today. The first is the grand prize which will pull three winners!

Bad Girls

I’ve been such a bad blogger this year. I’m sure when I get to the last post of the year, I’ll think “But I didn’t blog much this year!” because I haven’t. Maybe it’s a natural part of diving deeper into my writing. Which I haven’t been doing. Or maybe it’s just laziness. Whatever it is, I do apologize for not blogging as much as I used to.

I’m trying to fix that. It might even be a New Year’s Resolution. Which I never follow anyway. Oh well, looks like y’all are out of luck!

This is going to be a busy weekend, by the way. This afternoon, I’m heading to Lake Charles, Louisiana for the Ellora’s Cave show and book signing with some great Cavemen. You can tell I’ve been waiting for this for a while, right? I was so concerned back when I found out when it was because of the shoulder. But I know if I can fly to Ohio to be crazy at RomantiCon, I can definitely cheer and go crazy over the dancers. *cough*

Once I get back to town tomorrow, I’ve got to jet to my nephew’s 2nd birthday party. He’s so darn cute I could just eat him up with a little spoon! I can’t be late for that, so chances are I’ll be sleep deprived when I get there tomorrow. Add onto that edits I’m expecting from my CPs and it looks like I won’t be getting any rest this weekend. But hey, how does that saying go? No rest for the wicked? And I can be very, very wicked when I want to. 😉

So to come back to the title of this post…Because tonight’s show is going to be hunky men doing their thing on the stage, it’s going to be great. And although this song is so played out because of Bridget Jones’ Diary and I think it was in Magic Mike as well, it’s perfect for the craziness that’s sure to go down tonight.

This is my Freaky on Friday song dedicated to the Cavemen show tonight. I hope to do a full RomantiCon blog post next week, so look for it!
