My Christmas Story :D

Hello and welcome!

Paperback Angel-3v.jpg

I wasn’t in the Christmas spirit this year, just didn’t ‘feel’ it… then it happened …

I never heard a thing, before a pair of hands wrapped around my face to cover my eyes.  The movie I had finished watching on television had just ended, and I had just turned the screen off, with the idea of heading for bed.  It was Christmas eve, midnight.  If I didn’t get to bed quickly, Santa would miss my place and my stocking would be empty in the morning.

Don’t say a word, a deep dark, dangerous sounding voice, whispered in my ear on a breath, and my skin immediately erupted into a rash of goose bumps.

 All things considered, it will sound strange for me to say this, but I didn’t feel threatened, not at all.  There was no sense of danger about how this man’s aura washed over mine.  I could tell he was strong, but his intent was pure, and filled with mischief.  I got the feeling this could be fun, or at the very least interesting.

Stand up, but no peeking, the man’s voice breathed into my ear again, and I couldn’t help but smile.  It tickled.

Who is this?  I asked breathlessly.

 You will find out in time, the man promised.

That was when he took his hands away.  I wasn’t about to comply with his wishes.  I rushed to turn, felt suddenly dizzy and the world turned black as it spun around me.  It seemed strange that I was able to hear, yet had no control over what was happening around me.  Still, I wasn’t worried.

You weren’t supposed to hurt her, another voice sounded in concern.

She isn’t hurt, the man I had heard earlier spoke.

How long will she be out?  The second man asked.

A few hours, by then we should be back home and I doubt if she will care after that.  The first man answered.

Ha, was my thought.  Someone was going to hear about this!

I felt my body being lifted by a set of very strong arms, and then was cradled against a warm well defined male chest, something I took advantage of by snuggling in closer to.  It felt so good.  Whoever this was, he smelled of the deep forest, and it gave me a sense of peace.  Please, I thought to myself, don’t let me go, I want to die here.

Shh, you will not die, I won’t let you, the man promised.

 I felt the cold of the outside air for a few moments, and then a deeper warmth enveloped me, as I was passed over to another person.  This set of arms was even better than the last.  I felt even more secure, and warmth, as if I was enveloped in softness, yet the chest under my cheek was hard as stone.  The contrast was overwhelming.

Sleep Eniko, and dream of a world filled with beauty and love, wake to find it real, a new voice crooned.

I smiled, as I slightly squirmed to get closer, and remembered nothing until I felt movement around me.

You will need to drink something to ease your thirst, wake Eniko, a female voice sounded in my mind.

Can I open my eyes yet?  I asked, while my mind began to wake.

 The woman softly laughed, as she answered, Yes, you can look around you to your heart’s content.

I opened my eyes to look into the most angelic features on a face that I ever saw, she even had a set of white wings attached to her back.  If this was a dream, I didn’t want it to stop.

Where am I?  I asked.

You are on Tantalus, for now.  Kyllan heard your wish when you were last visited by a few of our people.  He will return in a moment, but in the meantime you can refresh yourself.  I am Karia; you will meet Mitchel in a moment.  He is taking care of the baby, as you woke at about the same time as Alusia did.  You will get to meet her too.  She stated.

Will I get to hold her?  I asked.  I really didn’t believe I was on Tantalus, but, whoever had set this up had done one pip of a job of it.

Karia took me to a different part of the aerie, where I took care of my needs, and then went back to the main room, where the largest man I had ever seen was pacing as he hummed.  He was holding a tiny child, and they both had wings!  He slightly bowed in acknowledgement of my presence and smiled at the expression of surprise that crossed my face.

I am Mitchel, he announced.  He then crossed to where I stood and gently placed Alusia into my arms.

I looked at the most beautiful baby girl I ever saw, her eyes sparkling and looked back at me with wide curious stare.  My own eyes filled with moisture and smiled, how could I not… then Alusia reached out and touched my face with her small hands while her small wings covered my head… they were so soft… my tears fell freely feeling the happy and warm energy she sent my way.

Both Karia and Mitchel laughed, pleased by my reaction, as they gazed with loving pride at their daughter.

I will never hope to compare after this. A new voice sounded, as two men entered the aerie.  One had a set of huge white wings, the other had none, but was hidden behind the first enough that I couldn’t tell who he was.  I did know that I had met him before, and would be happy to see him again.

Welcome to Tantalus, Eniko.  I will give you a choice of where you would like to sit, while you visit.  Karia, you can take Alusia back now.  The man ordered softly.

Yes, Great Grandfather.  Karia answered, as she lifted Alusia from my arms.

We have met in thought in the past, I am Kyllan. the man introduced himself.  He then moved to the side slightly, as the second man came forward, and he was smiling widely.

You remember me! Lothrariel spoke.  Kyllan was kind enough to come to the Elven Empire to pick me up, so that we could both spend time with you.

Oh YES!!! I sure do! sigh  I really had to restrain myself from jumping him when he opened his arms, but went into them slowly and he gave me a warm hug…. bliss I tell you… sheer bliss

SANTA CLAUS DID COME AFTER ALL!!! They all laughed at my uninhibited enthusiasm.

I will sit in the middle! I declared, as I made myself at home on the center cushion of the couch.  I wasn’t sure how long this was going to last, but I intended on making sure I didn’t miss a minute of it.  Not this time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will let you imagine the rest, all I will say that it was the best Christmas Eve ever and I still feel giddy, grinning like a loon 😀

Hope you enjoyed it.

My Chat with Cailean!

Hello and welcome!

I met my next guest a few days ago and …. Just keep reading 😉

Welcome! Welcome!
where is my ice bucket?  … he is soooo… YUM 

What is your full name?
Cailean Ross

Do you have a nickname?
Cailean the Champ. The by-name hails from my champion knight status on the tournament and Highland Games circuit, namely the hugely popular Heatheredge Gathering in Scotland’s far north.

What is one word best describes you?
Dedicated.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Aye, well… As you’ve caught me at the start of EDGE OF YESTERDAY, I’m in my most resplendent medieval reenactor gear. I was just heading for the joust, so I’m mailed, plated, and helmed in shining armor. As I’m proud to be a Scot, I’ve also slung my Ross plaid about my shoulders. And, of course, I’m carrying my trusty sword, Triumph.

I dinnae like to boast, but I’ve been drawing the eyes of the ladies here at the Gathering. A shame none of them appeal to me, lovely as they all are. I’d rather have a fine and braw medieval lass, but they are thin on the ground in modern-day Scotland.

Do you think the authors portrayed you accurately?
He grins For the most part, aye. It wasnae always easy accepting the mores and such of medieval Scotland – after all, how many men these days have an overlord who pretty much rules everything ye do? Good thing I liked and respected the one the authors chose for me. Otherwise, I might have walked off the page.

So, aye, Tarah and Sue-Ellen did me proud. Their pens gave me my head for the most part, with them just following along, scribbling away as I went about my business.

If I could change anything, I’d request potatoes in the story. Damn, I missed my tatties! But spuds didn’t exist in medieval Scotland, and so… I did without.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My lady’s brother asking if I can sit a horse or swing a sword. He chuckles shaking his head He only asked once.

What is your favourite dessert?
Millionaire Shortbread, which sadly also doesnae exist in medieval Scotland.
I have to search that... searching on the weboh they look yummy

Millionaires-Shortbread2.jpg
recipe

What is your favourite drink?
Anything but medieval cider. He shudders
I remember your first experience with cider 😀

What is your greatest fear?
Now he really laughs I would say my mother-in-law, but as she is indeed a formidable and very powerful woman, I’ll no’ risk her seeing this interview and getting annoyed. I’d like to keep my head on my shoulders.

What is your favourite colour?
The shining silver steel of my sword.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Cold Highland air and my lady’s attentions.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Aye, well… I wouldn’t mind taking my love, Lady Julianna, to modern-day Heatheredge for a pub lunch at the town’s cozy tavern. Then I’d drive her north to Durness on Scotland’s rugged northern coast for a few days of long walks across the beaches and cliffs there. Privacy with her, see you? There is no’ much of that in medieval Scotland.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
A champion knight is ne’er ticklish, lass. No’ in this time, nor in the auld days.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Peat smoke on a chill autumn day. And if I have to tell you what it reminds me of, you’ve never been to the Highlands.
Unfortunately I have not, but it is on my bucket list.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Hey, her looks. I’m a man, after all. But what really matters, what keeps me looking, is what comes out of her mouth. It’s a strong and smart woman that fires my blood. I’m blessed to have just such a spitfire in my beloved Julianna. She’s smart as a whip and bold as they come. God, I love her!

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I sure do. My lady wife, Julianna. Though, in truth, I don’t have her quite yet. As I understand this romance-novel-hero deal, you readers have to first read my book before I can truly claim her. We have to reach our happy-ever-after ending and all – and do so in public! Before readers’ eyes. I did have a chuckle at that part, you were quite embarrassed 😀

Did you hear that? I don’t think that is really fair. I want her now, see you? So get reading, lassies! Grab a copy of EDGE OF YESTERDAY, read on, love the book, and make me a happy man.

What is one word best describes her?
Daring.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Aye, EDGE OF YESTERDAY is book one of Tarah Scott’s and Sue-Ellen Welfonder’s co-authored EDGE series. These are Scottish time travel romances. There will be lots more “EDGE OF..” books coming, so readers can get ready to spend lots of exciting times in Heatheredge, Scotland, the fictitious Highland setting of the series.

I’ll add that the location is based on a real place known to the authors. I’ll also vouch that readers will enjoy their time there. After all, how can they not when I’ll be there to greet them?

I sure did enjoy myself. Thank you Cailean for chatting with me, say hello to Lady Julianna for me.

Now, thank you for having me, dear lady. It’s been good to have a blether with ye, as we Scots say. But I need to get back to my Julianna now. She knows I love her, but she might no’ like me spending too much time with all your lovely modern-day lady readers.

So I’m away… See you at the Edge, ladies!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for joining us and I hope your had fun, I know I did 😉

EDGE OF YESTERDAY-cover.jpg

As Cailean mentioned he hails from book 1 of the Edge Series, Edge of Yesterday by two amazing authors, Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder.

Edge series-banner.jpg

Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…

Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.

World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.

Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.

When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

Excerpt (+18 please)

“Is my company so abhorrent that you must flee?” she asked.

“On the contrary your company is too pleasing.”

She dropped her gaze in a clear attempt to hide her expression but Cailean could see she was pleased.

“Then stay,” she said.

“If your brother catches me here, he will try to kill me.”

She snorted. “Lennox knows I am a woman grown, and I am no maiden. I can do as I please.”

“That doesnae mean he would want me dallying with you.”

“Dallying?” She lifted her brows. “Ye think well of yourself, sir.”

“Dallying isn’t what ye had in mind?” he asked.

Her eyes darkened. Yes, this woman was trouble. She started toward him. He straightened from the wall and remained perfectly still until she stopped in front of him.

“I am no idiot,” she said. “I have seen the way you look at me.”

Trouble, trouble, trouble.

But he wasn’t going to take the bait. He stared but said nothing.

“Ye find me pleasing to look upon,” she said.

“I have eyes,” he said, then cursed his tongue. Give the woman inch and she would take a mile.

She stepped closer and before he could move she placed her hands on his chest. “You want to know what it is like to kiss me.”

It wasn’t a question.

She slid her hands up his chest and over his shoulders, her fingers brushed his flesh and tickled the sensitive hair at the back of his neck. His cock began to lengthen.

“Julianna,” he said, but she was pulling his head down.

Their lips touched and Cailean felt his surroundings slip away. Her mouth, warm and soft, melted beneath his. Her breath was sweet with the taste of rosemary and mint. Lightly, her tongue flicked at his lips. Cailean sucked her tongue into his mouth. She pressed close and her hard nipples poked into him. Cailean gripped her shoulders and crushed her to him. Julianna speared the fingers of one hand into his hair and tugged as she nipped at his lips. Heat flashed through him. She abruptly pulled back and Cailean jarred. Julianna backed him toward the bed. Leaving would have been the better part of valor. But a kiss or two wouldn’t hurt…

“Your brother will never forgive me,” he said.

“Then we willnae tell him.”

The backs of his legs bumped the wood frame of the bed and he fell onto his arse. His cock jerked when she knelt in front of him. Sweet God, she wasn’t going to… She kept her eyes on his face as she reached toward his…belt. Laughter appeared in her eyes as she unbuckled his sword belt. The woman was a tease—and knew it. She grasped the sword and pulled the belt from around him, buckled it, then hung it over the small post at the foot of the bed. Julianna rose, hiked up her dress, and straddled his lap. She reached beneath her skirt and shoved his kilt up to his waist. He held his breath as her velvety soft skin made contact with his thighs.

“God have mercy,” he breathed, and she laughed as her mouth descended onto his.

Cailean kissed her back and wondered if he’d ever truly kissed a woman before today. He’d known beautiful women, had cared for one or two, but Julianna took his breath away.

Her soft belly bumped his engorged cock and a spasm of pleasure pulled his bollocks so tight he grimaced in discomfort. Bloody hell, he wanted the woman. Her mouth moved on his and this time she sucked his tongue into her mouth. Cailean grasped the hairnet she wore and pulled it from her hair. Two long braids tumbled free. He took one braid and worked it loose until the thick tresses filled his hand. He drew a fistful of the hair to his nose and breathed deep.    

She began to rock her mons against his erection. He drew a sharp breath when her soft curls tickled the underside of his cock and bollocks. Cailean gritted his teeth against the compulsion to orgasm. He hadn’t embarrassed himself in that way since he’d been a lad of nineteen. He broke the kiss, then tugged down a sleeve of her dress and revealed one perfect breast with a light pink areola. He ducked his head and took the nipple in his mouth. Her skin tasted slightly salty and felt like velvet. He flicked the nipple with his tongue. She gasped and rocked harder. Each bump against his member sent pleasure rocketing through him. She hadn’t lied when she said she was no maiden. The woman knew what she wanted—and he liked that. So much for the submissive wilting medieval woman.

Cailean twisted and rolled Julianna onto her back. He shoved his hands beneath her arse and scooted her fully onto the bed. Her loosened hair framed her face like spun gold. Cailean brushed his lips against hers. She stilled and satisfaction shot through him. She wasn’t afraid to ask for what she wanted, but she hadn’t expected tenderness…and maybe a little more?

He kissed her again and covered a breast with his palm. Julianna slid her arms around him and hugged him close. Cailean gently rocked against her. It would take every ounce of determination he had not to come before he pleased her, but he would do it. She arched her hips. What would she do if he slipped a finger into her wet heat? His heart pounded. God help him, if he touched her sex he might not be able to keep from driving inside her like a beast.

My thoughts – 5 stars
To the authors: I haven’t done any cleaning and is all your fault 😛

I couldn’t stop reading, I could not put it down, the whole time I was in suspense waiting to see what happens next, loved the buildup, the story is amazing. The characters mesh well, loved the interactions between Cailean and Julianna. Made me laugh thought how long it took Cailean to realize he was not in his time anymore, it created quite a few interesting moments for him. The ending was surprising… a good one, I promise 😉

Beyond the Myth – Release Day

Hello and welcome!

Today is the release of “Beyond the Myth” by M. A. Abraham. Congrats on the new release, Ms. Abraham! Love the cover done by Cora Graphics.

Darlene and Derek Stanton are top-notch archaeologists, born and raised in the field. They are sought out for their expertise, along with the prestige they bring to each job they do, which is why they were hired to check out a myth that led to a buried city.

Darlene hides her vulnerabilities behind a wall of ice, where she feels safe from the rest of the world. Her twin, Derek, on the other hand, is quite the opposite, adventurous and easygoing. What they find in the buried city, and experience soon after, sends her into a state of shock.

Ripped from her home planet, forced into a relationship, and lifestyle that is totally alien to everything she knows, Darlene fights to regain some form of stability in her life. Derek doesn’t have the same problem, as he settles into their new lifestyles without a problem. It doesn’t help when the handsome man who now owns her is so charismatic that she can barely keep her hands off of him. How is she to face the reality of the life she has found, beyond the myth?

Atl is the eldest son of the leader on a space ship. He wants nothing more than to marry his childhood sweetheart, until he meets Darlene. She is beautiful, spirited, and nearly more than he can handle. Will he be able to connect with her heart or will he lose her forever?

My Chat with Ty

Hello and welcome!

I’ve been waiting with much anticipation since I heard about his story and now that I read it, I had to invite him for a chat. My knees are trembling… OH MY! … sigh … too bad he doesn’t have any brothers, those eyes DAYUM … my fave colour

Ty.jpg

Please welcome Ty!

What is your full name?
Tyler McKay

Do you have a nickname?
My friends call me Ty. My sisters sometimes call me Ty the Tiger, but I let them live.

What is one word best describes you?
Principled.
That you are, I am impressed how much.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
A navy Ermenegildo Zegna suit, and white shirt with French cuffs and gold cuff links – a graduation gift from my grandfather. They have my initials engraved on them. I don’t much do casual, even business-casual. I’m also wearing a silk tie that Amy picked for me. It’s a little more colorful than I would have chosen myself, but I’m taking her out for dinner tonight and she’ll like if I’m wearing it. Pleasing Amy is very big for me. Stepping out of my comfort zone has proven to be a big part of pleasing Amy, but it’s totally worth it.
A little colour is good for you 😀

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I don’t think I’m quite as bossy as Deborah made me sound. I did get that exasperated with Amy, though. That part was all true, every single word. My car is never going to look right again, and it’s my own fault.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Being surprised. That can make me laugh or it captures my interest. Amy did both the first time we talked, which explains a lot.

What is your favourite dessert?
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I was always a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, but Amy’s homemade pasta is changing my thinking very quickly.

What is your favourite drink?
Red wine.

What is your greatest fear?
I don’t have many fears. I was raised to see fear as a challenge, and to address it with my choices. So, if I were – just for example – afraid that this relationship with Amy might not continue to be as incredible as it’s been so far, I’d make every effort to keep that from happening. I think relationships need to be nurtured, and that partners need to be appreciated. My parents do that for each other, and Amy’s parents apparently did that (I would have liked to have met them) so we both are committed to talking and sharing. I’ll never take her for granted, and that’s a big part of what undermines fear.

What is your favourite colour?
I’ve become unexpectedly partial to tangerine. Just catching a glimpse of a dress in that color – especially if it’s a puffy bridesmaid’s dress – makes me smile.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. What do you wear? he winks
Wouldn’t you like to know I say with a grin

What is the perfect romantic date?
I used to think it was one in which everything went according to my plan. The thing is that while it’s satisfying to organize something well, it can also be a bit dull. I didn’t realized that until Amy and I started our fake date plan – I was never entirely sure what was going to happen and that actually increased my interest in seeing her. She challenges my expectations and I like that, I like it a lot.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
As if I’d admit anything that will make me vulnerable.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I like how women smell. I like how the scent of a woman’s perfume (if she wears any) and her soap and whatever other products she uses all blend with her own scent to create a distinctive and personal scent. In particular, I like how Amy smells. I could find her in the dark.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I read mysteries and thrillers, so I’m intrigued by a woman who can’t be understood at a glance. Amy, for example, used to dress very plainly. It was probably easy for people to overlook her, but I noticed that she had a quiet confidence, and also that she was quite pretty. After we were in the elevator alone together and she was too flustered to remember to push the button for her floor, I knew she’d noticed me. After that, I paid attention. I saw that she read a lot, just like me. I noticed that she always brought her lunch to work, just like me. I saw that she bought herself a coffee only on Fridays and I wondered why. Why one? Why only on that day? Because we’re both readers, I thought of Amy when I decided to take a fake date to my sister’s wedding. Because she chewed me out for my assumptions the first time we talked… and quoted Anaïs Nin to me! I had to know more – which is why that fake date led to an engagement of our own. She wasn’t like any other woman I’d met before, so I had to know more.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Amy, my own enigma. We’re getting married soon.
I hear, congrats to you both!

What is one word best describes her?
Unexpected.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Simply Irresistible is the first book of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies by Deborah Cooke. Next up is Addicted to Love, which is my friend, and partner, Kyle’s book. Kyle is the high king of one-night stands, so I’m not convinced that Deborah can lead him to a happily-ever-after, but maybe and I say this with some doubt, it’s only a question of Kyle finding the right woman. Maybe.

Thank you so much Ty for chatting with me, I really enjoyed your company and I am looking forward to read how things progress in the next books. Hugs to Amy.

I give him a quick hug… hey… I couldn’t resist feeling up his hard body… I know, I know, I am shameless 😛 … and those eyes? Le sigh!

As I close the door after Ty, I hear …

Pssst – this is Deborah. It’s actually a question of Kyle having a second chance with the woman he already knows is the one for him. She married someone else, so he knows that a relationship with any other woman has no future for him. Lauren is Ty’s sister, though, and Ty knows nothing of either the night Lauren and Kyle shared once-upon-a-time, or the fact that Lauren has turned to Kyle for pure pleasure after the end of her marriage. Don’t tell Ty. He’ll be shocked that his favorite sister would do such a thing.

Great timing Deb, Ty just left. Thanks for sending him over for a chat. I am sure Ty will get over it and be happy for his favourite sister. I can’t wait for Kyle and Lauren’s story. I can’t believe I have to wait for 6 months to read it o_O

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.

As Ty mentioned, he hails from “Simply Irresistible”, book 1 in the Flatiron Five series.

Tyler McKay has had enough…
Going to his fourth sister’s wedding without a date will only encourage his female relations to “help” him find romance. Ty’s ready to wait for Ms. Right and is busy enough as the finance guy for F5. When he learns that the cute woman who works in his building is in the same predicament, he’s sure that fake dates are the perfect solution. She agrees, but Ty soon realizes that there’s far more to Amy than meets the eye. When she enrolls in a bondage class at F5, he finds himself taking a disguise as dangerous Matteo to keep her safe. How far will he go to win the heart of a woman he finds…simply irresistible?

Amy Thornton can’t get enough…
Amy can’t resist another romance about a hot hero and the woman who steals his heart away with naughty games. When she decides to write her own book, she knows she needs to do research. Her fake date, Tyler, is gorgeous but too nice to play naughty games—unlike Matteo, Amy’s mysterious personal instructor at F5, who plays them so well. When Amy has to choose, will she pick the nice guy or the promise of the forbidden pleasures she finds…simply irresistible?

My review: 5 stars

I think I am in love … I really enjoyed Ty and Amy’s story, the way it unfolds, with small detours that seem big at the time. What I liked the most is that Ty is a nice guy, no dark past, no scars or emotional baggage and that is refreshing. The excerpts from the book Amy is writing are from an actual book which I read and enjoyed, another novel idea I love, having two authors collaborate this way. I can’t wait for Kyle’s book. Thank you Ms. Cooke for an awesome read!

Maybe you remember I posted a while ago that this series is connected to Ella Ardent‘s Euphoria series. With Tyler’s encouragement, Amy decides to follow her dream of becoming a writer. She begins to write an erotic fairy tale called Her Dark Prince. I read that one too… Amy you naughty girl LOL…  and I am hoping I can get Lothair to come for a chat 😉
