My Writer Friends: Karenna Colcroft. Check out Hear Me, See Me.

Here is the blurb:

Since Rachel began dating Orrin, he’s pushed her boundaries sexually and she’s loved every second. Now, to help her overcome her fear of being overheard during sex, Orrin has brought her to a “house party”, where nearly everyone will be engaged in some kind of sex act before the night is over.

In a small cubicle made of three walls and a curtain, Orrin brings Rachel to such feverish heights she can no longer remain silent. When Orrin’s friend Roy hears them, how will Rachel respond?

And isn't this a great cover?

ANOTHER LOVER set for release April 6th from Ellora's Cave

I just got word from my editor that ANOTHER LOVER will be release on April 6th. After edits, this story turned out so well.

Here's the blurb:
Dorian Montgomery has one driving need, to be selected as the Westminster Whore’s final lover. The last two years, others have outbid him. This year he is determined to have her, and places the culmination of three years’ bids as his offer. Will it be enough to win her?

Isabelle St. Hillaire has fashioned her sexual legacy—one lover a year for thirty days only—on her unusual features and her uncanny ability to pleasure men in all the right ways. Her last client will be the masterful aficionado she has never had. A man with an astounding reputation as a lover and an equally magnificent body. She has only one rule. Don’t fall in love with her.

This year’s winner? Well, let’s just say he didn’t have the highest bid, but he had the most to offer.

My Writer Friends: Shoshanna Evers. Check out Hollywood Spank!

Doesn't this title just make you want to hit the buy button? Check out Shoshanna's newest release, HOLLYWOOD SPANK.

Here's the blurb:

When the studio heads for Mark Cannon’s new action movie discover that their leading man likes to spank his personal assistants, they insist Mark hire a professional submissive who won’t run to the tabloids with his kinky secret.

Andrea Landley may be a wonderful assistant, but she lied through her teeth about being a BDSM pro to get the job—and now her real career as an undercover tabloid reporter has gotten very interesting.

Andrea is willing to do whatever it takes to get the dirt for her scathing exposé—even if it means learning how to take a spanking from a movie star. She doesn’t realize until it’s too late that Mark Cannon has a lot more in store for her than just a simple stinging bottom.

And here's the BUY link:

My Writer Friends: Tory Richards. Check out her newest release.

Check out Tory's newest release from Ellora's Cave: Breathless Surrender.
Here's the blurb:
Months of running into her sexy new neighbor takes a toll on Alexis' libido. There's interest in his smoky gaze every time they meet, but he seems reluctant to ask her out. And other than a slight nod, and a polite hello, that's all they share. About to take matters into her own hands, she finds herself thrown into a situation that could end her life.
With nothing but erotic fantasies of Alexis to warm his bed at night, Reid knows he has to stay away from her until his undercover assignment is over. But when a coldblooded initiation to prove he's trustworthy forces him to involve her, there's nothing to keep him from claiming her.

Here's where you can buy Breathless Surrender.

And here's the cover:

Ozark Romance Authors Conference July 23, 2011

Join me along with New York Times bestselling author Shannon K Butcher (author of Love You To Death and Burning Alive) at the Ozark Romance Authors Conference in July. There'll be lots of great sessions plus the uber talented Leah Michaels.  Admit it - hers was the first book you read when you decided you wanted to write romance! I know I did!

Shannon and I will be talking about writing hot heroes - a favorite topic of mine. And you all know where I get my source material - DAVID GANDY. Yup, you knew I would bring him into this blog, didn't you?

Had an excellent mini-vacay in Florida and got to do something I've always wanted to do: sailing! I signed up for a class and spent three hours on the water learning to tack and jibe. On the first run through, I did a complete 360 on the turn, but got better after that.

Sailors claim that a "bad day on the water is better than a good day at work." I think I agree with them. Of course, I had a perfect day for lessons - ten mile an hour winds, little powerboat traffic in  the bay and a scrumptious teacher, but a bit young.

My sail day was both a check-off on my bucket list and a bit of writing knowledge for a new contemporary romance I'm working on. AND a tax writeoff.  Really, how could I go wrong?

I enjoyed it enough that I might make this a semi-annual outing.  Land-ho and back to work. And wasn't it good of David Gandy to come along.

My Writer Friends: Cindy Jacks. Check out WAKING MAGGIE.

My writer friends include CINDY JACKS, who also publishes with Ellora's Cave. Check out her new release WAKING MAGGIE.

Here's the blurb:  Maggie’s just decided she’s been stood up when she bumps into hard-bodied guitarist Calvin—literally. Once the shock of their abrupt meeting wears off, Calvin asks Maggie out for a drink and she figures, why not? She’s all dressed up for a date…just not this one.

She enjoys his company, even if he’s only twenty-seven and she’s forty…something. And while witty conversation’s all good, they’re just as compatible in bed. One drink turns into multiple romps between the sheets. He’s old enough to know how to make love to a woman and young enough to look damn fine doing it…and doing it. He even manages to convince Maggie she’s still pretty hot herself.

Now if he would just stop serenading her with that infernal Rod Stewart song.

On the Bookshelf: Time Traveler's Wife

I'm curious to know what readers thought about this book. I found this book several months after it came out, devoured it and then recommended it to a friend.  Guess what?  My friend didn't like it. When the movie came out last year, I was anxious to be the first to say it would be bad, nothing could compare to the book. I was right and wrong.

The movie made a good attempt to put together a cohesive story and had I not read the book, I would have thought it very enjoyable.

So what did you all think? I was amazed by the writer's ability to piece together a very complicated time line. Yes, I cried at the end. I guess I hoped for a happily ever after when it needed to be a "happy for now," story.

I'm at RT Book Reviews!

There are several awesome moments in the life of a writer...finishing your first book, getting an agent, selling a book AND being the SPOTLIGHT AUTHOR at RT's Everything Erotica!  This was such a COOL honor. When Morgan Doremus emailed me several days ago to ask if I wanted to do this, I was like, does anyone EVER say no? Well, I wasn't going to be the first...

And if that wasn't enough, I got a FOUR STAR Review. I think you have to subscribe to read it...sorry.


And this gets you to the Everything Erotica section of RT Book Reviews.

YES, this is an EPOCH in my writing career! Thanks RT. It's hard to think of David Gandy at a moment like this. Well....almost.

Got my next novel wrapped up and submitted to my editor.  WICKED LORD was a treat to write and I had a hard time giving up the wicked Lord Redding. It's fun to create opposing characters - one innocent, one wicked. The sparks seem to fly without in real effort on my part.

Now if only my editor wants to buy it!
