CoverWill his call of duty break both their hearts?

Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph’s only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.

Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.

When faced with the realization that she’s fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?

“You never answered my question,” Brandon says.

The movie ended an hour ago, but we haven’t moved from the couch. I’ve never understood why couples make out in the backseats of cars. Couches are so much more comfortable.

“Which question was that?”

“Who could you date?”

“Hmm.” I pretend to ponder. I mean, really, shouldn’t it be obvious by now? “Someone who is kind-hearted. Someone who walks old ladies to the door of the coffee shop. Someone who looks sexy in a paisley apron.”

He smiles. “What about a Kentucky Wildcats fan? Could you date one of those?”

It’s a fair question, considering my Indiana roots and my love for Hoosier basketball.

I wrinkle my nose. “I suppose.”

“Good to know.”

—————————————————–

 

Excerpt #8:

“How was your run?”

Brandon sits down beside me. “It was good. Why are you up so early?”

“I love the Kentucky sunrise. I’m going to miss it.”

“I’ll miss it, too.”

“I was just wondering if a Georgia sunrise would be just as pretty.”

“I don’t see how.”

I smile. “And the bed was cold.”

“Steph, it’s summer.”

“The bed was still cold.”

He grins and leans over, kissing me on the cheek.

“I guess I need to get used to it, huh? Cold beds, I mean.”

Brandon dips his head and kisses my shoulder. “I’m afraid so. For the next twelve weeks, anyway.”

“And after that?”

I shouldn’t ask, because I know the answer. After that, if I want a warm bed, we’ll have to get married.

The United States Army won’t let us live in sin.

————————————————————–

Excerpt #10:

 

Steph suddenly lifts herself up, straddling my waist and sliding her hands along my stomach. Another flash of lightning in the sky shows me what she’s wearing.

It’s my Princess Bride T-shirt, the same one I was wearing the day we met in class.

“Nice shirt.”

“Thanks. I stole it from your closet before you left. I’ve slept in it every night.”

“Thief.”

With a sly grin, she leans down and kisses me again.

“You’ve stolen my clothes. Stolen my heart.”

Steph smiles against my lips.

“There’s something else I want to steal,” she whispers.

I slide my hands along her back, pulling her closer to me as I raise myself up. Wrapping her arms around my neck, she melts against me when I bury my face against her neck.

“I’ll give you anything, Steph.”

“Anything?”

”Whatever you want.”

I lift my head and find her eyes, deep and dark and full of tears. All of her earlier playfulness is gone as she places her palm against my cheek.

“I want your last name.”

THE INTERVIEW:

What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo? A favorite pen? Devil horns on a headband?

Cara: My computer. LOL. I write on a laptop, but I have a separate keyboard and wireless mouse that I must have. And I need a notebook to jot things down. In winter, I often wear fingerless gloves because my hands get cold. But I don’t have a special talisman to create a magical mojo.

Cynthia: Nutella! Cynthia Sax runs on this chocolate hazelnut goodness. One of these days, I’ll organize a huge Nutella-sponsored writer-reader world tour. We’ll go on the road, eating Nutella straight out of the jar, talking about books and creating havoc wherever we stop. That’s the dream!

Other than Nutella, I have no rituals. I’ll change anything and everything to coax the muse out of hiding. If a story isn’t working on the screen, I’ll handwrite a few scenes. If the handwriting in blue isn’t working, I’ll write in hot pink. I’ll turn on or off music, listen to country, rock, opera, rap.  

A.M. Griffin: None. I used to play with one of my son’s toys while I wrote. It had a calming effect. But as you know, if I had it then he had to have it. I gave up on that. I do like to sit on my bed and write. I’ve tried to go to other parts of the house to write, but I found that it’s either too noisy or distracting, especially if there are messes to clean.

Lolita: I need music and soda—and that’s about it. Well. Okay. Sometimes, especially when I’m writing late at night, I like to wear my purple house robe. I basically shuffle around the house looking like The Dude—but no white Russians here. :0  I’m strictly a teetotaling soda girl!  (And that’s a Big Lebowski reference, for those not in the know!)

 Blurb:

Grabbed, Book Three

To escape her father’s debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She’d rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything.

The years of constant war haven’t been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love—and bind and adorn with his ropes.

After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy’s late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all.

Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy’s haunted past threatens the future they’re trying to build. He finally has a reason for living—and he’s not giving her up.

Loving Dangerously, Book Three

Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.

Rasha, captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.

It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving and the world seems like a strange place. Probably because other than Turkey day, I spent nearly my entire 5-day weekend in sweats or pajamas. Ahh, it was wonderful! I didn’t even crack open my laptop except to order pizza. Gotta keep my priorities straight. I didn’t write this weekend even though it’s what I’d planned. Nope, I read. And read some more. And read even more. And it was fabulous!

But I also seem to have caught a cold. Joy. Nothing worse than trying to sleep but you can’t because you can hear yourself breathing, hear the congestion in your chest and feel the post-nasal drip. Ugh. What a nightmare, but that’s okay. It’ll pass and I can use the foggy-headedness to write. Hey, I take every advantage I can.

Now I know y’all aren’t really here to find out about my cold, my pajamas or how much cake I ate while I was off. Y’all want to know who won the 20 prize grand prize of the 1,000 blog post giveaway. Right? Well here are the winners:

Excerpt:

That first change hurts.

The Derain’s were there for us during the whole miserable time. Then they changed as well. Marie nuzzled at Jennot and my world turned red. I chased her, snarling and snapping, away from Jennot. I didn’t care how big and strong Marie was; Jennot was mine, not hers. Not ever hers. My new body knew that our society was dominated by the women. As long as I wanted Jennot, he was bound to me. I knew that even if I set him free, we would spend the rest of our lives circling each other.

Jennot’s scent filled my nose like the most beautiful perfume. I knew I would do anything to protect him. To keep him with me. After I chased away the Derain’s, Jennot and I chased each other, running and pushing at each other, nipping and calling out in the new language we had at our disposal. Then we became mates under the heavy summer moon.

I had thought I had loved him with all my heart. I was wrong. What I felt after we changed was stronger than anything I had ever thought I could feel.

Post 1,000 Woo-Hoo

Here it is! The 1000th post on my blog.

Seems like it should be more impressive than that, doesn’t it? Hm. Well, I can’t exactly give y’all fireworks and mostly naked men dancing around, but I do have a giveaway scheduled.

First though, let me just say that it’s been a wild ride. Blogging isn’t all that easy when you’ve been doing it a while because you don’t want to start regurgitating posts. Which I think I’ve done a few times. I’ve blogged about writing, getting through the rejection process, getting an agent and losing an agent. I’ve blogged about sexy men. Lots and lots of sexy men. I’ve even interviewed several of them. By the way those were some of my most visited posts. I also blogged about life in south Louisiana, shared some Cajun French with y’all. That’s the set of second most viewed posts. Yup, seems everyone is curious about how to pronounce things or what have you.

Secondly, I have the best friends ever. The writing community is amazing. Simply amazing. I’ve met a lot of wonderful people on my road to publication, through the rocky pass of being a published writer and everything in between. If you ever embark on this same wild ride, be sure to surround yourself with people who will tell you like it is, but do it with their shoulder and a bottle of booze handy, who won’t run you down to make themselves feel better, and who’ll understand what you mean when you start talking about the voices in your head talking to you while you’re taking a shower and not think you’re insane.

So saying all that…here’s the giveaway. I have several of these awesome people offering up prizes. Be sure to enter and tell your friends.

And because it’s What’s Playing Wednesday…I just gotta share this song with y’all. Because it says everything. Let’s get this party started!

Well, well, we made it through Monday mostly unscathed. At least I think we did. I so overslept today and I did it in an awkward position which means I’m limping since my hip hurts like the Dickens. And if you’ve ever read Dickens, you’ll understand why it hurts. No offense to you Dickens lovers…but really? Ouch.

As most of y’all know, we had a big blog hop going on. Yup, the Big Cocks & Broomsticks Blog Hop to celebrate Halloween, the Cabal of Hotness and just being goofy. We chose our winners and they’ve been mailed. Now to wait  for their responses which will probably be “Yippee skippy!” or something like that.

The Grand Prize ($100 gc to Amazon or Barnes & Noble) goes to Val Denis.

Second place ($50 gc to Amazon or B&N) goes to Joey Ross.

Third place ($25 gc to Amazon or B&N) goes to Shelley Monro.

First off, we had so much fun with this hop and it’s always a pleasure to meet so many new people! Really it is. Secondly, I hope most of everyone sticks around because with the Cabal of Hotness, there’s no telling what we’ll come up with next. Honestly, I don’t even know what we’re doing next…mostly because those bitches are crazy. Y’all hear?

Oh! And I had a giveaway here on my blog as well. Random.org chose…

Jasmyn Novachek as the winner of the Danica Avet fleece blanket! Yay!

So glad everyone participated in the giveaway and if you’re looking for more goodies to win, be sure to “like” me on Facebook. I hold monthly giveaways known as Fan Appreciation Giveaways. This month I’m giving away gift cards to help with holiday shopping.

Oh and in case I haven’t mentioned it, I’m also holding a giveaway here on the blog when I hit my 1,000 blog post! I have prizes from a large group of writers who are most awesome. Among a few,  you can expect to win books from Cynthia Eden, Lea Barrymire, A.M. Griffin, Lucy Felthouse, Cara Carnes, Cassandra Carr, Cristal Ryder, Amy Ruttan, Anya Richards, Denise Tompkins, Kari Gregg, um…Sky Robinson, Piper Trace, swag and prizes from Jillian Chantal, Tara Nina and gosh, there are even more authors who I’m sorry to say I forget at the moment. Needless to say it’s a cornucopia of romance! Yay! So look for that giveaway to happen…um, next week most likely. I’ll start the actual countdown to the 1,000 blog post tomorrow.

Peace out!
