Welcome! I’m currently in the middle of a Just Romance Me Blog Hop. Just click that banner to join in! It’s a lot of fun, and there’s a Kindle Fire up for grabs. I’m sharing a few feel-good stories from 2012. Come see!
Work in Progress News ~ Thanks to Twitter Hive Mind (specificallyÂ Lea Griffith) I have a title for my recently completed book! I then submitted Taking Her ThereÂ to a few publishers. Now the fun part…waiting. (That’s sarcasm right there). I did post chapter one on my site, so you’re welcome to go read it and see what took me so long to finish.Â Now back to work on Dean’s story. Earth Scents Book Two, tentatively titled (already! I know!) Rising Heat. I really didn’t get much done at all last week, with Christmas filling my time. Â I’m just under 9K. Let’s hope I can get into a groove this week.
Favorite Song of the Week ~ Josh Groban sigh has a new album coming out soon. This is the first single.
Tweet of the Week ~ This lady cracks me up:
My husband just had to get in the car to make a phone call if you’re still considering having kids.

What I’m reading ~ I’m in the middle of Pestilence by TA Chase. This is one of four “Horsemen” books, obviously about the four Horsemen. Blurb: Having lost his wife and child during the Black Plague, Pestilence accepts the fate destiny has given him as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. For centuries, Pestilence did his job, spreading plagues and disease around the world. He does it to keep the balance between good and evil, yet he hates every minute of it. He longs to be left alone, but suddenly fate seems to have a different plan for him.
Search Term of the week aka How People Found My Websites ~ “candy erotic southern “googlebooks””. I don’t know what that means, but it sounds delicious. And probably deep fried.
Book Snippet ~ A short excerpt from For a Price:
Nick though, didn’t stop to chat. He continued guiding her with his strong hand pressing against her spine, and his long strides led her around the corner of the establishment, in the same shadows where she watched him before. He took her by both arms, and backed her against the cool brick.
“You didn’t answer my question.”
She could smell his breath. Taste the moist puffs of air against her mouth. Her heart pounded in excitement. Such highhanded treatment should have made her livid, but instead it lit a fuse on a powder keg of desire. Looking into his appealing face, she couldn’t even remember the question.
“I thought you wanted to kiss me,” she said almost inaudibly.
And then he did. His firm mouth covered hers. She indulged in the scent of his spicy cologne, the feel of his warm lips. She parted hers, and boldly darted her tongue inside his mouth. Whiskey never tasted so damn good.
Okay folks. Have a great New Year, be safe and responsible. See you next year!
