A collection of standalone novellas from your favorite authors; A.M. Griffin, Amy Ruttan, Anya Richards, Danica Avet, Sabrina York, Cynthia D’Alba, Jennifer Kacey, Felice Fox, Tina Donahue, Sayde Grace and Lynne Silver, writing hot to erotic romances about hot men brought to their knees by love.

The Alpha male. Strong. In control. Letting no one and nothing rule him…until he meets the one, and all bets are off. The world tilts, the bed rocks, and suddenly that tough guy finds himself Brought to His Knees–in more ways than one.

This collection of ten hot to erotic novellas and one short erotic novel will take you on journeys of lust, love, and adventure, leave you breathless and quite possibly in need of a cold shower.

A.M. Griffin ~ Dark Wolf Enterprises ~ Murder, mayhem and imprinting with a hot wolf shifter… And they say being an accountant is boring.

Amy Ruttan ~ Building Bridges ~ A vet tech and a lone wolf rancher ride out a sudden storm, but can they weather the emotions they stir up in each other…

Anya Richards ~ Three Strikes ~ Two lonely men. One secret affair. Irresistible passion that will push them both to the breaking point, and beyond.

Cynthia D’Alba ~ A Cowboy’s Seduction ~ One exhausted cowboy + One uptight account x A tropical resort = A hot seduction. But who is seducing whom?

Danica Avet ~ Born To Sin ~ A tomboy in love makes a desperate attempt to seduce her best friend and succeeds beyond her wildest dreams. But this Alpha male isn’t easily tamed and has secrets that could very well tear them apart.

Felice Fox ~ The Sound Of Your Name ~ Their silent erotic encounters change his luck and awaken his soul, but secrets and cowboy superstitions can only keep them apart.

Jennifer Kacey ~ Beneath The Pages ~ One wicked night with her did nothing but whet his appetite. Now he’ll settle for nothing less than her complete submission.

Lynne Silver ~ Cruising For Love ~ A vacation cruise comes with surprises–like the BDSM theme and her high school love, the one man she can’t resist.

Sabrina York ~ Whipped ~ A scalding attraction. An irresistible passion. A pity she’s the one woman he can never have…

Sayde Grace ~ Chief Sin ~ A taste of Sin isn’t enough. Instead she wants all of him, including the heart she once broke.

Tina Donahue ~ Make Me Surrender ~ When it comes to two of the hottest guys in town, she has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts.

So many amazing short stories for only 0.99 at all of these retailers

Hey Stranger

Um, so it feels like forever since I blogged. For some reason, I just can’t seem to come up with anything interesting to write about in terms of me.

Are y’all still here? If so, thank you so much! How’s life been treating y’all?

You know how things just sort of go crazy. You have a set plan in place, a goal in mind that you’re bound and determined to follow and then BLAM! fate throws you a curveball? That’s what it’s been like for me. After the release of Touched by Lightning, I’ve been dodging curveball after curveball. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been ogling sexy men over on Facebook because y’all know that’ll happen no matter what.

But for about three months my creative energy was gone. Oh I tried to write, tried to pretend I was going to have a story finished by April and another finished in May. I even had a spreadsheet with all of my ideas and schedules planned out. Then real life intruded, bold and brash, bullying my muse. Between the EDJ and family crises, my muse was whimpering like a whipped puppy.

Things aren’t better, but they aren’t worse either. I’m starting to finally (slowly) get a handle on things. None of those things that’ve been holding me back have gone away. If anything, they’ve gone from schoolyard bullies to massive giants stomping all over everything, but my muse is fighting back. She wants to write stories with happy endings (and not just of the sexual kind heh). She wants to exert a little control over something even if it’s an imaginary world.

So saying that, I’ve just finished a short story for an upcoming box set called Brought to His Knees. I’m going into this awesome undertaking with ten other authors: A.M. Griffin, Amy Ruttan, Anya Richard, Sabrina York, Sayde Grace, Jennifer Kacey, Felice Fox, Cynthia d’Alba, Tina Donahue and Lynne Silver. I have to say, it’s pretty amazing what eleven determined authors can accomplish and I really think this box set will have something for everyone’s tastes. My contribution to this set is the next story in my Southern Sin series. Don’t worry, we’ll be having a huge book cover reveal and prizes and… you know what? How about y’all follow our Facebook page to find out what’s going on next? We’re having takeovers, giveaways, you name it and we have it 😉

Brought To His Knees

And starting soon, possibly even today (shocker!) I plan to start a series that’s been driving me insane for the last two months. Maybe it has to do with all of the stress that’s built up since January, but I’m going dark and grim with this new series. Oh don’t worry, I still plan to write my shifters in the Cajun Heat series and stories in my Grand Terre world, but a writer’s got to write where the muse allows her, right? 😉

I’m going to try a lot harder to blog more often, but I’m not promising anything because when I do… 😉

So how about y’all? How has everyone been?

Fantasy Man Friday

Greetings, my lovelies! It’s a dreary, rainy day here in south Louisiana, but who cares? It’s Friday, but more importantly, it’s Fantasy Man Friday.

Before I get to that though, here’s what’s going on. I’m still on my blog tour and you still have chances to win at the places I’ve been this week. Check out my contest page (http://danicaavet.com/Contests-Appearances.php) for locations. Today I’ll be at Escape by Fiction (http://escapebyfiction.blogspot.com/2011/09/cbsl-aint-no-bull-danica-avet-book-tour.html) with a review and giveaway (they just keep coming, don’t they?).

Secondly, today over at Darker Temptations (http://darkertemptations.wordpress.com/) with a scavenger hunt giveaway! We have a slew of prizes up for grabs, are you ready for this??

What you can win:
From Sayde Grace – two digital copies of her books

From Cynthia Eden – an ARC of Angel of Darkness or a digital copy of Never Cry Wolf

From Danica Avet (that would be me!!) – digital copy of any one of the Veil series and a set of Romance Trading Cards

From Rebecca Zanetti – signed copy of Fated

From Kristin Miller – digital copy of Intervamption

From Marcella Burnard – signed copy of Enemy Gates

And now for the Fantasy Man…rar. I really debated for this one. I had to find a man who spoke to me today. Well, they all speak to me, but some tend to speak more than others, you know? Just like real men. Of course, most of the time they say stuff like “lick my six-pack abs” and “you know you want to bite my thighs”…but there has to be more to it than that, right? *snort* Okay, I lied. What do you think of this one?

*drools* It’s like he’s begging me to tie him up and have my very wicked and imaginative way with him. That happy trail…*fans herself* G-R…GRRRR He brings out the Eartha Kitt in me. Well, not that I really have an inner Eartha Kitt…maybe an inner pervert, but she’s on the surface a lot more than inner and why am I explaining this to you when I could be drooling over this man? Go away now and don’t forget to stop by Darker Temptations.

Happy Friday, y’all, have a safe weekend!

What A Release!

Okay, so I don’t really have anything to blog about today. I rejected several ideas all morning long and finally decided I’d pimp some friends out (because I’m a good book pimp like that).

This week is a book release frenzy, so I hope you have a paper and pen ready to take notes!

First off, Rebecca Zanetti’s debut release, Fated comes out today from Kensington Publishing! If you remember, Rebecca was nice enough to stop by last week for an interview (which I had so much fun with) and a giveaway. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to win an ARC (like me), I recommend you go out and buy Fated.

MARRY ME

Cara Paulsen does not give up easily.  A scientist and a single mother, she’s used to doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter.  But “Whatever it takes” has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous stranger with an attitude problem…
                                    OR ELSE

Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he’s there to protect Cara and her daughter.  He also says that he’s a three-hundred-year-old vampire.  Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he’s had that long to practice…

Next up, is Cynthia Eden’s release in the Deadly Series, Deadly Lies out from Grand Central Publishing. Cynthia is a cool lady with some really great books you won’t want to miss!

She wants to hide the past…

FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn’t fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger.

He needs to uncover the truth

One night isn’t enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable—until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn’t who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of blood-thirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.

As a merciless criminal spins a web of . . .

DEADLY LIES

Then we have the release dates of the Sizzler ladies! Jillian Chantal’s second book with Siren Publishing, Surfer Bride, is being released today and trust me, this is one lady who can make you drown in her story (bwahaha, so did not intend that pun!). *snicker* Okay, getting back to the book! You have to pick it up. Her heroes are muy caliente!

Quincy Holt, a world champion surfer, was in love with a police officer, Fennimore Smith. He dumped her over a rumor that she cheated on him. Two years later, she’s moved on and is engaged to Percy Hicks, a British man that she believes could make her happy. Quincy thinks her fiancé is an antiques dealer but he’s actually a firearms smuggler. A smuggler being investigated by her former lover, now an ATF agent. When Percy’s private plane full of weapons is confiscated while Quincy is aboard and she’s arrested for arms dealing, Fennimore Smith flies to Bali to rescue her and get her to testify against Percy. She turns him down as she has plans of her own. She sets off to London on a quest to trap her fiancé and bring him down. Will she survive her mission? Will her former lover have to rescue her again?  

And last, but not least, is the amazing Sayde Grace’s first book in the Moonlight Cravings Series, Untamable which is being released on Wednesday, February 23, 2011. Don’t let Sayde’s innocent southern lady looks fool you, this book is hot and a paranormal at that! You don’t want to miss it!

Waking up tattooed, mated and a werewolf would shock most people but for Siddalee Brighton it’s just another day.

Siddalee has always held a burning hunger for her best friend, werewolf Jasper Gandillion. But she never realized what belonging to the animal within him would mean until he marks her in a show of passion and dominance, awakening the werewolf inside her. Siddalee was the first of many illegal breeding experiments that the Luna Werewolf Nation Alpha, Dane Velham, created and the only one strong enough to stop the monster from torturing other women and creating more experiments.

So with all of these great books released this week, you shouldn’t have a problem finding something sizzling hot to read!

Fantasy Man Friday

I’m singing Another One Bites the Dust this morning because it’s Friday which means we’ve conquered another work week! It’s been an action-packed week…again. I’m not complaining! I’ve had so much fun between interviews and guest appearances and finding out the date of my next release, I’ve barely had time to take a breath. I love weeks like this because it feels as though I’m accomplishing something. What it is, I have no clue, but it feels good, LOL.

Before I get to the gorgeous Fantasy Man, I’d like to announce the winner of the final mask for Ruby’s book. The winner is…Jen B! Jen, please contact me and I’ll try to ship your mask tomorrow. I have to thank y’all for following along on this blog tour. I’ve had so much fun!

It isn’t over either because the next tour for book 2 of the Veil will start on February 28th! I’ll be posting the dates for everything once it’s all settled. If you have a guest blogger spot open, or would like to interview me, I’m cool with that! Just send me an e-mail at danica.avet@gmail.com and we’ll work something out. I have more masks to give away, these completely different from the masks given away for Ruby, so if you follow along on the tour, you could probably win one of those as well!

I’m not going to rhapsodize about the week like I normally do. I’m ready for my Fantasy Man this morning. As I sipped my coffee, I pondered which one I’d choose. I have a whole stable of gorgeous men waiting to be viewed, so you can imagine how difficult the decision process is. Le sigh.

So…here we go. Today’s Fantasy Man is…Well, he isn’t wearing many clothes, that’s for sure. The minute I saw this guy, I thought of Sayde Grace which so isn’t fair. I mean, really, I should be concentrating on him and what he shouldn’t be wearing. I’ll let you look and decide for yourself what should go.

Ah, I see he’s already reading my mind. He knows exactly what needs to go. *fans herself* As you can see, this is another man from the Gods of Football calendar. I didn’t know Australia had cowboys, but day-um! If they look like this guy, I’m moving and I’m taking my bullwhip with me. Okay, I don’t have a bullwhip, but I would buy one. And spurs. Yee-haw!

Happy Friday, y’all! I hope you have a great weekend.

The People We Meet

In continuing with my year-end review, I can’t go another day without mentioning the people. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the romance writer’s community seethes with wonderful people. If you’re lucky, you “click” with several of them.

This happened to me this year. 2009 saw me going through the writing process alone. Sure, I’d started emerging from my shell (because Danica pushed me out), but I still hadn’t developed friendships. I think it started with my first critique partner. To be quite honest, I’d forgotten I signed up to the Romance Writer’s Community (a place to help critique partners find each other).

Then one day, this lady named Daisy Harris sent me an e-mail asking if I’d like to partner up. I was scared because up until then, I hadn’t really had anyone other than agents read my stuff. It felt…weird. Then I got my first critique. This woman made me crack up laughing at her comments. I wish I could lie and say she found no problems with my manuscripts, but she did. And she made me laugh at my goofiness. Yeah, there were a lot of “you know there’s a line between troubled and crazy…” kind of comments throughout that particular manuscript and I had to agree with her.

Daisy is one of those people who’ll make you laugh and then tear into your manuscript with a vengeance. She points out things you don’t see and doesn’t make you feel dumb for missing them in the first place. I adore Daisy because she’s managed to make me a better writer and helped me see that humor can be a part of the critiquing process.

A month or two after I met Daisy, I met Avril Ashton. Avril is sassy and stylish (she gave me inspiration to move my characters out of leathers and into high fashion) and she loves a strong heroine. I love a strong heroine as well, but up until we started working together, I think my leading ladies were wishy-washy. By critiquing her, I saw what a heroine could be and applied the theory to my own work.

Where Daisy points out the ridiculous and makes me laugh, Avril will point out that though the hero and heroine had sex, they hadn’t even kissed yet. Horror of horrors! She’ll also tell me flat out if she likes my heroine, if my dark moment is gripping enough and not melodramatic. She’s been a rock for me.

But it doesn’t end there. Oh, no. The critique partners aside, I’ve met so many wonderful people online and in real life. At Nationals, I finally got a chance to meet two of my favorite online personalities, Jillian Chantal and Sayde Grace. Southern ladies with sass, they made me feel like one of their own. I love these ladies and can’t wait to meet up with them again.

Then there were my “clicks”. Nora Roberts mentioned that sometimes you meet someone you click with and end up friends forever and ever and ever. I made a click at the conference. A spunky lady named Silvia Arada. She and I spent a lot of time together going to workshops, hanging out at the book signings, and huddling with the Smoker’s Club. We decided at the conference that when we’re both published, we’re going to sit near each other at the literacy signing. It will happen. We know these things.

There are so many people I’ve become close to in 2010. I’ve made so many new friends I wish I could mention them all, but that would take a much longer post. As much as I love to ramble on, I wouldn’t want to bore anyone into drooling all over their keyboard, so I’ll stop here.

The people we meet through our writing journey are people we’ll work with. They’ll become colleagues, they’ll become staunch supporters, and rivals on the NYT Bestseller’s List (We hope!), but most of all, they’ll become friends. They’re people you go to for advice, for moral and emotional support. They’re the people who flat out tell you your characters sound crazy and unbalanced and that is not attractive in a heroine. They’re people who will tell you that you have to take a leap of faith and not to let past problems burden you. They’re the people you’ll want with you for a very long time and if you’re lucky, you’ll have them forever.

What’s Playing Wednesday

It’s another What’s Playing Wednesday when we take a listen to whatever pops up on Danica’s Magical Music Player! First though, I’d just like to thank Sayde Grace for her wonderful interview and remind you that you have until tomorrow to leave a comment to win one of her books! We’ll be announcing the winner on Friday and heck, I might even dedicate this week’s Fantasy Man to that lucky person!

Now for What’s Playing Wednesday! Ah, my Magical Music Player pulled up a good one today! Remember me talking about how when I was little I was given the choice between watching The Blues Brothers and Halloween II? Well, like any goofy 5-year-old, I chose Halloween II. Yes, nightmares ensued. However, it wasn’t much later that I got to see The Blues Brothers. To this day, it’s one of my favorite movies.

One scene I remember well, was this older man singing blues on the sidewalk in Chicago. Mr. John Lee Hooker. Something about his voice caught my imagination and I became a fan. Years and years later (not saying how many), I went out to play darts with my cousin. We were dressed up and looking cute, if I say so myself. Well, the dart board was next to the bar and there was an older man sitting there nursing a drink. My cousin, who’s six years younger than me, was talking and the man said this:

I like the way you walk. I like the way you talk…like a little baby doll.

It wasn’t until I started looking for songs that I realized he totally ripped those lines off of John Lee Hooker. I laugh about it now, but I thought that was the coolest thing anyone could say. Anyway, today’s song is Boom! Boom! by John Lee Hooker.

What a song! This is one of those songs that instantly transports you to a smokey bar. I can almost see myself (many pounds lighter) wearing a tight blue dress, matching gloves as I sashay across the room while this song plays. It has to be a sashay. It can’t be a stroll or a stalk. Or is that just me?

Ah well, I hope you enjoyed today’s song!

Author Interview – Sayde Grace

Greetings readers! Today I’m at the hospital with my mom who’s having toe surgery. In lieu of one of my ever-so-fun rambling posts about nothing at all, I decided to track down and interrogate interview a very special lady. Sayde Grace is the author of the Built Cowgirl Tough series. She currently has two books in the series out right now with Wild Rose Press.

Take it away, Sayde!

Bio:
A native of South Alabama Sayde Grace was raised among the cotton fields and dirt roads of the south. She has a deep love and appreciation for the rural communities and uses her experiences of small town life in her books. A lifelong story teller, Sayde  began writing full time two years ago and has written five full length manuscripts which range from romantic suspense to young adult and even erotica. In each of her five books she uses her experiences in farming, ranching, or rodeoing to make the story setting believable. Growing up in the equine and cattle industry have given her a behind the scenes knowledge of the industry. Sayde is currently enjoying and loving life in beautiful South Alabama with her husband and two young children. She is published with The Wild Rose Press for two novella’s and working on a third.

Blurb:

Raised by parents who don’t believe in affection, Melanie Brantley developed a hard-edged outlook on life…and love. But then along comes a cowboy who makes her blood boil, and not only with anger. A fact that scares the hell out of her. Enough that she seeks solace at Minx, a club that caters to the more carnal pleasures.

After recovering from a bull ride gone wrong, Lance Wright is ready to move forward and he’s set his sights on Melanie. Her temper tells him all he needs to know about the passion he’d find in her bed. The wildcat fights him every step of the way, but she’s in for a surprise. The harder Melanie bucks, the more Lance wants to ride.

Okay Sayde! Here’s what I’ll do: give you lots of questions. If you want to skip some, go for it. I’ll probably post it on Sunday or Monday, pass you the link and have it ready to go for Tuesday morning. *rubs her hands together* Here we go!

Tell us a little about your writing. What inspires you to start a story? Do you read tea leaves, or rune stones? (Just asking!)
No tea leaves, or rune stones. No voodoo either. Most of the time I’ll be listening to the radio and a song will play. It’ll make me think about the love or desire between the characters in the song and spark something with me. That’s when I usually start plotting (yea, I said the P word what of it!). Or if I read a book and it ends wrong to me I will ask myself what it would have taken to make that book work for me. That’s when I start thinking about a setting, a plot, and characters that I could use to turn the romance that didn’t work for me into something that will.

You’re a southern girl after my own heart. Do you have a favorite place to visit in the south and why?
You know, I love visiting River Rd, Louisiana with all the plantations. I think that’s my favorite place. It’s so neat to think back and romanticize the past even though I know it was a harsh life. My grandfather was a huge farmer so I know exactly how hard farming can be but those homes, inspire all kinds of romantic ideas.
And I adore Fort Worth Texas. I had the chance to tour the Fort Worth Historic Stockyards before the renovation was complete and it was beyond neat. The history there is inspiring of all kinds of westerns. In fact one of my books is set in the Stockyards while another is in Oak Alley from Plantation Rd!!

You seem to have a wide range of writing interests! What appeals to you most? The genre, or the story and how do you choose which to write in?
Well,  I love writing and reading paranormal romances. I mean they are what I really do enjoy the most but my ideas seem to wonder into the already done area. I have two paranormal romances that I think stand out really well but we will just have to wait and see. For me I write erotic romances featuring cowboys the best. I rodeoed my entire life so I know a great deal about the equine and cattle industry so it’s easier for me to go into those life styles and give the characters all kind of wicked things to do in the entry fee both, or in a hospital bed after one gets hurt.

What’s the worst part of living in a small town? (Cause I want to make sure I’m not the only one who goes crazy because everyone’s in everyone else’s business!)
You are so not the only one who goes crazy. I think for me the worst part is staying out of the gossip. I love talking, so it’s really easy for me to listen and comment when someone is spreading gossip but then I have to stop myself because, NO I do not want to be that little old lady with blue hair who knows everything and everyone and is always spreading gossip while stroking one of her ten thousand cats. Nope not me!

What is your writing schedule like? Do you sit down to write when the muse beats you over the head, or do you write all the time regardless of creative juices? Doesn’t that just sound naughty?
You know I used to sit down just as soon as my daughter went to school in the morning and write most of the day. Now my son (who is 3) doesn’t allow me to do that. He’s needy. Plus my husband’s work schedule got changed and now it’s hard to write while trying to make sure my son isn’t tearing down the bedroom door while my husband sleeps so he can work that night. Rotating shifts can be a pain, but I’m hoping I’ll get back into my regular schedule soon! It’s killing me.

How many books do you plan for your Built Cowgirls Tough Series? Your Wicked Cowboys Series (are they connected)?
My Built Cowgirl Tough series will end with four. Originally I’d thought to end it at three but then needed a book to introduce my Wicked Cowboys. In my last cowgirl book you’ll meet my wicked cowboys and their ranch. These series are connected through one couple who will run the ranch.  In the Wicked Cowboy series I have no idea how many cowboys I’ll end up with. I mean its Texas, the possibilities are endless!!

Cowboys, cowboys, and more cowboys! The Built Cowgirls Tough Series has some Alpha cowboys in them. Do you know cowboys like this? Just asking cause uh, if you do, are they single? 😉
You are so bad!! But I love it. On the biblical basis, no I don’t know them. On a friendship level I did know a few.  But no, they are now happily married. Sorry!!!

I stalk follow you on Twitter and I’ve seen you tweet about the many manuscripts you have in the works. How many projects do you work on at once, and do you find it hard to concentrate on more than one project at a time?
I currently have about five projects either in rewrites or started. I find it very hard to concentrate on one at a time. But the great thing is that when I get stuck or bored (this happens often) I can open another project up and write on it for awhile and usually my head clears enough that I get unstuck. And if you’re stalking me on twitter I guess it’s a mutual stalking, um following J!!

We’ve had a conversation at Nationals about a special um, party you went to for one of your chapters. Have you used what you learned in your books? (Give me allll the juicy details!)
Ok, I’ll tell everyone about the party that I went to. At RWA nationals the Passionate Ink Chapter had a reception/party. Now the PIC chapter is made up of erotic romance writers. The reception was very well catered and I got to sit with Angela Knight. Now after they announced the winners to the Passionate Ink’s contest they had a presenter talk. Boy of BOY I was not prepared for the speaker. Lol, it turned out to be a young lady who was extremely nice who did a presentation on the living the BDSM lifestyle. She gave us tons of examples of types of submissives, Doms, and things they do to each other. I’m pretty open minded and write about things that shouldn’t make me blush but oh man this DID!! My face was so red, but she gave us great insight to it all. In fact she even did a few examples. One she made a young lady from the audience be blind folded and kneel in front of her by command. SHOCKED!! Yes, I’m way innocent!

 

But you know what, she told us some things that about BDSM stuff that we find in books that is not real. I mean, I guess it could be but she informed us that most of what you read in books about people living a “true” bdsm life is not real. I have kept that in mind while writing one of my books because the main character (another cowboy) is into that life and is trying to introduce my heroine to it.

What’s up next for Sayde Grace?
Next I will be publishing an urban fatansy that falls into the erotic side with Siren Publishing and their Siren Classic line. I’m super excited to be with a new publisher and seeing the difference between publishing houses. The tentative release date for Untamable is April 2011 which I believe our lovely host will also be releasing a book that month as well as our friend author Jillian Chantall.

 

What’s your favorite movie of all time? You know, the one you will watch time and time again because it’s so good. Please tell me there are sexy men in it!
Ok, is John Wayne sexy? I know his son is, or was. I have no idea what his son looks like now but my favorite movie of all time is Mcklintock. John Wayne turns kinda way alpha in it as does his son who plays Devlin Warren. Maybe that’s why all my hero’s are alpha and cowboys!!

*******

 

All right, in the honor of the holiday season I’m giving away a digital copy of your choice between either Riding Double (ménage) or my new release The Harder They Buck.

“It’s the most wonderful tiiiime of the weeeeek” Yeah, I’m so singing that this morning because it’s Friday! Can I get an “amen”? Thank you!

So it’s been quite an emotional rollercoaster over the last couple of weeks. Between good news, a rejection (which totally didn’t break my stride), and worrying about the upcoming holidays, I feel like Sybil. But that’ll all change, I hope.

Time marches on, dragging us all to the end of 2010 and the beginning of a new year. Mais, it’s insane. It feels like 2010 had just begun! It reminds me of what my mom always said about time flying as you grow older. I always figured she was just crazy (which she is!), but she’s also correct. The older I get, the faster time seems to pass and I don’t want it to! *sniff*

So here’s the deal. On Tuesday, December 13, I have a special guest author interview with the ever-sassy, ever-Southern girl, Sayde Grace about her latest release, The Harder They Buck. If you can’t tell from the title alone, it’s a book about cowboys and cowgirls. When we set up the interview, I was thinking…you know, if we’re going to have a discussion about cowboys and their ropes and chaps and…oops, sorry. If we’re going to discuss delicious cowboys, then we need to have a cowboy Fantasy Man Friday, right?

Right.

Except I found two, count them TWO, gorgeous specimens and I can’t choose which one to go with. So because I’m torn between them (in a very good way), I’ve decided to post both cowboys. You can choose which one you like better, but me? I’d love to take both of these men home and er, serve them coffee. *cough*

Cowboy 1

Look! He’s even bringing his own rope! His jeans are a little dark for me, but who really cares about that? Isn’t there a saying that it isn’t what a man’s jeans look like doesn’t count, but what’s inside them? Nom, nom…

Cowboy 2

He has tattoos!! *swoon* And he looks to be in some um, physical distress. Poor, poor, sexy man. I’m sure some sweet, innocent, young writer…say like, me, wouldn’t mind helping him out. *fans herself* Those lickable tattoos…gr-owl!

So now that you’ve drooled all over your keyboards and fogged up your monitors, I hope you have a Happy Friday and a wonderful, safe weekend. Be sure to stop by on Tuesday to visit with Sayde to find out more about her hot cowboys and the women we’ll all pretend to be when reading her books. 😉

Winner!

Well, after a wonderful weekend of comments, Jillian has picked a winner in her giveaway. Sue Serigny, you’re the lucky winner of Jillian’s shoe charm! I’ll contact you today to let you know how you can go about receiving your booty (bwahah).

It’s always a pleasure to interview my friends who are coming out with new releases. The one thing I can say about this writing business is that it’s amazing how tightly knit the writing community is. When my friends find success, it feels like my own. There are so many out there who have books coming out for the first, second, third, and many more times, I wish I could interview them all!

In keeping with that, I’ll be interviewing the wonderfully sassy Sayde Grace, author of some wicked cowboys! Can we say hot? *fans herself* Sayde will be talking about her latest release,  The Harder They Buck, and I’m still trying to figure out what kind of naughty questions to ask her! 😉 She’ll be by next Tuesday (December 14) and I suppose I’ll have to find a sexy cowboy for this week’s Fantasy Man Friday. You know, to whet your appetite! 😉 Such a chore. Really!

Next month (yes, I’m already talking about 2011), I’ll have Avril Ashton , another one of my fabulous critique partners. Her first release, A Wicked Ride, will be out February 1, 2011 and I can’t wait for everyone else to read it!

I haven’t scheduled anything for February yet, but I’m sure I’ll find someone I just have to interview!

Again, I’d like to thank Jillian for taking time to stop by Unearthly Musings. I had a wonderful time with her interview and hope you all pick up her latest release. Don’t forget, we’ll have another interview next week with Sayde Grace and another in January with Avril Ashton! Also! I’m so pimping out my other critique partner! Daisy Harris’ first release Mere Temptation is now out on Kindle! Squee!!

I know what you’re thinking: so many books, so little time. So you’d better hop to!
