Happy Cupcake Award!


Anna's post reminded me of the cupcake award passed on by the lovely Ju Dimello!
Now, this shouldn't be a hard task - ten things that make me happy!!
1) My children. Three girls who are 20. 12 and almost 3, they are wonderful and make me so very proud!
2) My grandson. He's five months old now, and a happier little man you couldn't find =)
3) My husband. For supporting my love of writing that sees the house that little bit messy, the dinner often late (g)
4) Writing! Of course!! This is my passion.
5) Pizza, especially the fire eater.
6) Kettle chilli chips
7) Bourbon and cola (preferably with either 5 or 6)
8) Time to reflect. Sometimes as life rushes by it's easy to forget how lucky I am.
9) Eating out. I love trying others' cooking. Plus it saves me washing and cooking.
10) Horse riding. Particularly with miss 12. She loves her horse and loves coming out with me.

I pass this award onto these 10 lovely girls - if you're willing! =)

March: Quote of the Month



Writing fiction is a solitary occupation but not really a lonely one. The writer's head is mobbed with characters, images and language.

Guest Blogging


Anna Hackett and I are guest blogging over at Christina's blog today. We've each shown an excerpt snippet and revealed a little about ourselves.
Hope you can visit =)

Book of the Month and March reads



India has become one of my favourite category authors, and I have to say SPANISH ARISTOCRAT, FORCED BRIDE didn't let me down.

With a deliberately misunderstood hero in aristocratic Tristan Romero and a delicate flower heroine in model Lily, it sounds almost typically presents/sexy characters. It's anything but. Gorgeous writing that is chock-filled with emotion. I can highly recommend it!

Kallie Revealed - April release day!!


KALLIE REVEALED
Release Date: April 20th!!

Unofficial Blurb:
When Kallie's fairytale life turned into a nightmare, she dealt with the stress in a way she never would have imagined. For too long she's yearned to live outside the box, experience things she has always been too afraid to try.

Becoming every man’s fantasy as a stripper drives away the constant ache within and makes her feel beautiful again. She discovers her dark side and sets out to explore her secret desires.

Seth Masterton is a rising star in the corporate world and he is everything Kallie has ever wanted. He’s watched all Kallie’s performances and never hides his lust for her. She knows it's time to face her demons and make some changes in her life. Maybe this possessive man is all she really needs. Tonight, she’ll find out.

Note: this book contains a brief female/female sex scene, which takes place during a steamy, male/female group sex scene.


Excerpt:

Chapter One

He was here again.

Kallie knew it the moment she strutted onto the stage in a white cowgirl hat and matching, sleek tasseled dress. Even as the Sydney club echoed with wolf whistles and lewd cheers, from somewhere in the crowd she felt his stare.

Seth Masterton. A man going to the stratosphere in the corporate world. A rising star. He could have any woman he wanted, and yet here he was, watching her.

Her skin tingled, her pulse thudding like a freight train quickly gaining speed. She smiled, hoping he liked what he saw! And hell, she wasn’t one to disappoint.

Not anymore.

Heavy bass flooded the stage. A spotlight dazzled directly above her, the spectator’s faces now dim in the crowd as she threw her head back and then strode forward, hips swiveling to the beat before she grabbed hold of the center pole and executed a turn.

Ha. The audience would expect more, but she liked to tease, liked the pretence of innocence before she showed her true self. Literally.

Shoulder blades bracketed against the pole, Kallie leaned back, tan, thigh-high, heeled boots spread wide and arms above her head as she slithered down and then ever so slowly up. It was just her and the music now. The men, and probably a few women, were all silent, salivating as she did her thing.

A delicious thrill zapped straight between her thighs. Yes, she danced for everyone who’d paid to watch. But in reality, Kallie danced for only one person—Seth.

She straightened and the tips of her fingers traced the outer rim of her cowgirl hat. Then, with a flick of her wrist, she launched it through the air, her arrow-straight blonde hair immediately cascading to her waist.

A roar of approval met her performance. The room pulsed with energy and crackled with lust and Kallie couldn’t deny the excitement leaping within.

She stilled, closing her eyes to soak it all in. She could have any man or woman here tonight—married, gay, rich or poor. The knowledge licked through her veins and made her pussy wet.

She’d fuck Seth tonight.

With a smile of anticipation, she opened her eyes and sashayed forward. A hidden, industrial fan ensured the sudden gust of air whipped back her long hair and pressed the white dress against her straining breasts.

A chair waited for her at the front of the stage and she stilled behind it while she looked out into the darkness to her left, sensing Seth’s presence. She shivered with longing.

This is for you.

One hand resting on the high-backed seat, she gyrated to the music while her other hand lifted. Her fingers, one by one, released the studs at the front of her dress. It peeled open to reveal glimpses of gold-tanned flesh and barely-there crimson lace underwear.

The music peaked and then went silent. She heard someone moan even before the light slipped away and ran over the crowd.

She stepped out of her dress and kicked it to one side. And in the cover of shadows she allowed her smile to fade while long repressed grief stirred and swelled.

It was bizarre how life had panned out. Sorrow had catapulted her onto this journey of self-discovery, this exploring of her fantasies, where for the brief moments when she was on stage, she felt whole and beautiful again.

Oh god. Don’t think about it. Not now!

Vampire's Tango

For a chance to win Michele Hauf's VAMPIRE'S TANGO, visit Anna's blog and make a comment on your favourite vampire power.



BLURB:


Vampire Alexandre Renard never met a more intriguing woman than Veronica Marshall. He waited for weeks for the mysterious woman to make her move...and wasn't disappointed when they shared a seductive dance at a Paris tango club. Their passion made him want to savor their embrace forever—even though he knew that Veronica was a slayer waiting for her chance to destroy him....

Faced with an early death, Veronica became a vampire hunter to do some good in the world before being forced to leave it. But as her game of cat-and-mouse with Alexandre turned into nights of unforgettable pleasure, how could she destroy the man she came to love?

With time—and their enemies—against them, vampire and slayer will have to fight to win just one more day in each other's arms....
