My Chat with Reid *mmmm*

Hello and welcome!

I finally got to chat with him… YAY… the one I fell in love not long ago when reading the newest instalment in this awesome series. But keep reading and find out who he is 😉

Welcome Reid!

What is your full name?
Reid Jackson

Do you have a nickname?
I’ve been called a lot of things, but that probably doesn’t count.

What is one word best describes you?
Private. My buddy Troy’s wife would say ‘solitary’, but Shayla is determined to fix me up.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Jeans and an old sweatshirt. It’s the middle of the night and I’m awake, watching a bad horror movie. I think I’ve seen this one…

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She thinks she did and Cassie thinks she did, but a guy has to have some secrets. If she missed anything, I’m not telling.

What makes you laugh out loud?
A woman who says what she’s thinking, even if it’s not socially acceptable. I like that.

What is your favourite dessert?
Anything Cassie Wilson is serving. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but I can’t get enough of her.

What is your favourite drink?
Water.

What is your greatest fear?
I don’t have one anymore. The worst has already happened and I survived. I wasn’t really living, though, not until Cassie came back to town and shook me up.

What is your favourite colour?
Black. I especially like black leather boots, when the woman wearing them is gorgeous …. and she knows it.
Oh yeah, I think I know what you are referring to 😀 Cassie was wearing leather boots when we were chatting a while ago… smoking hot.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Delivering Pappy’s fried chicken to a woman who’s reluctantly babysitting – and who guarantees to make it worth your while. I could have stayed there all night long.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’ll never tell.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Dill pickle brine. It reminds me of the day Cassie walked back into my life.
I remember, I was laughing at the young lad and feeling sorry for him at the same time.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her confidence. She doesn’t have to be classically beautiful: she just needs to believe in herself and I’m hooked.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes. Cassie and I are getting married next week.

What is one word best describes her?
Courageous. I always thought she was confident, lucky and gorgeous, but now that I know her secret, I realize she’s a lioness. She can roar for more from me anytime she wants…

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?

Yes, Some Guys Have All the Luck is book #4 of the Flatiron Five series. Next up is a shorter story, Going to the Chapel, which includes Cassie and my wedding and more. After that will be Theo’s book, Bad Case of Loving You. I’m looking forward to knowing a bit more about him. He’s the most mysterious of the F5 partners to me.

Thank you Reid for taking the time to chat with me. Looking forward to reading the wedding book 😉 Hugs to Cassie and congrats to both of you!

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

Well… there you have it and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I think Reid is a contender to Ty for 1st place for BBF in the series. Almost… Do I have to choose? Nope, I do not. So can I have both, Deb? LOL

Sten & Errisa … surprise!!!

Hello and welcome!

If you are following this blog for a while, you know that I get the most unexpected visits and they are usually from one of two places, the Elven Empire or Tantalus. Not that I am complaining, far from it, I really enjoy myself every time and I hope you do too.

Keep on reading to find out what happened earlier today.

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

I look up from my desk when a sudden cool wind distracts me from the edits I am working on and notice a man ushering a gorgeous looking woman through the doorway of my office. They are both wearing capes and have most of their faces hidden from view, but I can tell she is drop dead gorgeous, and he is enough to make a woman kill for possession. DAYUM the cape can’t hide his physique, but  I want to see more, much more.

Eniko? A deep voice enters my mind, telling me this is another alien from Tantalus, but there are no wings on these two.

I nod quietly and he smiles as he adds, I needed to make sure I had the right place and the right person.

The couple removes their capes and I can feel the drool collect in my mouth. I also catch the whimper that threatens to escape from my throat.

I am Sten, and this is my fiancée, Errisa he quickly introduces them both.

I can’t believe I am looking at these two. I happen to recognize them from one of the stories I read and I give a sigh of appreciation, along with a huge smile, as my mind thinks, how often does anyone get a chance to interview a merman and his mermaid Life Mate? I am talking about reality here, not one of those fake shows that you can tell have been formatted to suit the storyline.

Who sent you? Did they stick around long enough for me to thank them? Can I ask you questions? Hear your Siren voices? adding deep in my mind ‘jump your bones?’ I hope I am not rattling too much and you don’t read my mind, Boy, do I hope you aren’t reading my mind. I have never met a Siren before and I am suddenly feeling shaky.

Errisa immediately rushes to get some water for me as she hums a light song that I find soothing. It feels so good I can only wonder if she added something to the water. I turn to ask her, she smiles and speaks with a light melodic voice. I only took the impurities out of the water. You will feel better in a few moments, she assures me.

What can I do for you? I am game to offer you an assortment of services, I continue to speak without engaging my mind.

Sten grins, and I have a suspicion he has plucked the thought out of my mind where I considered a wish to jump his bones. I feel my face go up in flames and Errisa rushes to get more water, in hopes this might help my condition. Nope. But some ice might help to cool my cheeks. Sten only watches me with a grin on his face and chuckles. The cad!

I will be alright, I speak. I know it is a lie, but I have to do something, other than pretend to recover. Sten isn’t helping as he folds his arms across that incredible looking chest and continues to watch Errisa and I. What can I do for you?

We had hoped you could help us find a place where we can hide from Echoe and Vikor. They are hounding us to death. Sten explains.

I can’t help the nervous giggle that comes out of my mouth, as I remember Errisa’s sister and her husband’s actions. They still making your life interesting?

Something tells me you were told too much about what went on, who should we blame for that? Errisa asked.

I won’t tell, I replied, adding in my mind ‘Do your worst, I won’t rat out my friend.’

I see, I think we should make a little social call to our writer friend, Errisa suggested to Sten.

Perhaps she can help create a safe zone for the two of you. I add.

I can tell Sten is considering both ideas. In the meantime, I ask, Would you answer some questions? You are the first Sirens I’ve have met.

Sten frowns, as he wraps his cape back around his gorgeous body and then helps Errisa with hers. Then he comes close to forcing her out of the room. He stops, looks at me and comments, I am sure you are right, but we are leaving anyway. We have a writer to throttle… errr… I mean talk to.

Don’t hurt her, I call out. She hasn’t finished writing all the books pertaining to your series yet.

Sten stops and asks, This is important to you?

I reply, Probably to you too.

You do know she doesn’t deserve you, Sten declares.

I know, I can’t help but grin, But, she is stuck with me anyway.

As we are with her, Sten points out.

You won’t consider doing an interview? I can only hope and ask again.

Perhaps sometime in the future, Sten states, then escorts Errisa out of my office and they are gone.

In my mind I shout very loudly in hopes they hear me, That is totally unfair.

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

Well, there you have and I hope you enjoyed it. I did, despite leaving me frustrated. I know, I am greedy, I always want more… more information… more time… more… more… more … 😀

Sten and Errisa hail from the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, their novella, THE SIREN CONNECTION will be releasing on September 18, 2018. I hope you will join them and find out how bad Echo and Vikor are, they made me so mad at times, I wanted to smack them, how much interference they ran between Sten and Errisa.

TheSirenConnection-cover-lowrez

The oceans of Tantalus are teaming with Aquarians, the dangerous, predatory mammals that feed off anything that lands in their territory. What is strange about them is that they are avoiding the part of the ocean, close to the shoreline where Trysuil is planning to build the city of learning for the future generations. His question is, why this area? What is keeping them at bay?

As the water is no place for a winged man, Kyllan turns to his friends, the Sirens. They will soon get to the bottom of this, but it will come at a cost to the Tantalarians. The Sirens take one look at Tantalus and the sight of all that water feels like home. The home they knew on Mars never called to them in the same way and they know it is time to move on.

Read chapter 1 here.

My Chat with Heather Firth

Hello and welcome!

I am excited to introduce to you a new voice I discovered recently, smooth, scrumptious, rich like fine velvet.

Please welcome Heather Firth!

Heather-pic

Do you have a nickname?
Not that I’m aware of. If I do, nobody calls me it to my face.

What is one word best describes you?
Emotional. I’m 100% an emotional empath. It’s not uncommon for me to cry watching a commercial on TV.
Yeah… my son looks at me funny because I cry too.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Hmmm, I’m not sure. But there have been plenty of times when I’ve been listening to an audiobook and laughed out loud. Once I was driving and almost veered into the curb because I was laughing so hard!

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Definitely vanilla. I’m not really sure why. Maybe something to do with baking? Growing up, my grandma was the master of baked goods.
I love the smell of baking, my Mother used to bake every weekend and she used me as her mixing machine 😀 maybe that is why I hate baking… but I love to eat sweets

Favourite place to spend time in.
Other than my recording studio? That’s definitely a favorite place for me. But outside of that would have to be anywhere in the mountains.  Nothing beats fresh mountain air and mountain views.
I know what you mean. I was born and grew up in the mountains, I miss them.

What is your fave genre to read in your spare time? Do you have any spare time?
I really stick to romance books for the most part. Thanks to my career in narration I have branched out to Sci-Fi as well though. I really don’t have a lot of spare time these days. I used to read 3-4 books a week. Now I’m lucky if I can finish one book in a week. Most nights I fall asleep with my Kindle in my hand.

Audiobooks! What started them?
This one is a long story! It wasn’t one thing, but rather a chain of events. First, I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with a major in Dramatic Arts. My dream was to move away to a big city and become an actress. Looking back now, I realize I’m not a big city type of girl. Instead I got married, had children and worked jobs that helped pay the bills. In 2015 my friend invited me to see the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I had heard of the books, but never read them. I thought that they “weren’t really my thing”. I even asked my friend, “Are you sure you want to go with me? I was embarrassed watching Magic Mike!” Well, it turns out it was my thing. The day after the movie, I went out and bought the Fifty Shades books in paperback and read them four times. Thus, my love and obsession with romance books was born. Shortly after, I created Naughty Book Blog. I then discovered audiobooks. It was while listening to Colleen Hoover’s November 9 that I had a lightbulb moment. Audiobook Narrators can work from home?! Maybe I can finally find a career I love and put my university degree to use! So I made it my goal to become a voice actor.
I am so glad you did. Your voice must be heard!

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
At this point, I really have no interest in narrating non-fiction. My heart is with fiction. Although, I probably wouldn’t do anything with excessive amounts of gore. I don’t like horror movies so anything that has content similar to horror movie would be a no go for me because it would most likely keep me up at night or give me nightmares. I’m too sensitive to deal with that kind of imagery.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
If given the chance, I would love to go back to stage acting or even venture into film. I’m also a singer so I’d definitely love the chance to record music.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I’m not sure there’s a specific emotion or message, but being an extremely emotional person, I think that my real feelings sometimes bleed into my performance. It isn’t uncommon for me to be narrating a scene with a death and I have to stop and collect myself because the emotion gets caught up in my throat and I can’t speak properly. I have to hit the pause button, let the emotion out and then take a couple deep breaths to collect myself. These sort of scenes are really hard for me to get through because I feel it too much sometimes.

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
That’s a great question. I’ve never really given it much thought. Being new to this career, I’m just happy when someone sees my name attached to a title, has no good idea who I am, but is willing to give it a listen! At this point in my career though, I’m focusing on romance projects, so I’d say romance listeners are my target audience.

What is next in your narrating work?

Twisted Series-banner

Just finished up the fourth and final book in the Twisted World series by Kate L. Mary, Twisted Fate. It’s a zombie apocalypse with a well integrated love story as well.

Next up is my first romantic comedy, The Fine Line Between Love and Hate by Ashley Erin, a fellow resident of Alberta, Canada!

 

After that is Whole Lotta Frogs by Samatha Harris.

Conquered and Mastered-banner.jpg

Then I have two very naughty sci-fi romance titles by Sara Fields, Conquered and Mastered.
ooooh yum…. I am looking forward to these ones 😉

Thank you so much Heather for spending time with me. I am looking forward to lots more hours of listening.

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

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat and will give a listen, I promise you, it will be an experience.

SurvivingEden-audioCover

I listened to Surviving Eden book 1 in the Surviving Series by Virginia Wine and here is my review:

Story 4 stars
Performance 5 stars

I picked this book because of the voice. Ms. Firth’s is a new voice for me and I really enjoyed listening to the many voices and emotions of the characters. She really pulled off this dual POV story with passion. Her talent is evident and I am looking forward to many more.

New author for me, Ms. Wine gives us a forbidden love story. But when love is present, is this relationship really forbidden? I thought so too at the beginning, but following their story, I couldn’t help but cheer them on as Eden and Theo heal each other and the HEA ending changed my mind. When is the next book out in audio? I hope soon.

Here is a HAWT (explicit) snippet from the audiobook, if you are offended by that type of content, please DO NOT listen to this. There are more samples on the website or on SoundCloud, follow the links at the bottom 😉

Here are the links to find out more and keep up to date with her work.

My Chat with Alex

Hello and welcome!

One of my newest BBF (book boyfriend) stopped by for a chat, it was easy to fall in love with him. Keep on reading and find out who it is 😉

What is your full name?
Alexsandr Maksim Markov. In case my name didn’t make it obvious enough, my parents are Russian. he chuckles

Do you have a nickname?
No. Everyone just calls me Alex.

What is one word that best describes you?
If you ask my associate Marissa, she would say, stoic.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My girlfriend Dana would laugh, but I’m wearing a grey suit. She teases me about the lack of color in my wardrobe. I just like what I like.
I love it, gray is one of my fave colours too 😉

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes. It was somewhat disturbing, actually. I would like to find out how Ms. Leo got some of her information. Never mind. Maybe I don’t want to know after all.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Few things. I’m a pretty serious guy. It’s just my temperament. But Dana makes me laugh. She makes me smile a lot. That’s how I knew.

What is your favourite dessert?
Well, I’m vegan so the desserts I love may not be as decadent as others. If you gave me a few pieces of ripe fruit, the juices dripping from them, I’d be in heaven.

raspberrySmoothieBowl

source

Raspberries are my fave fruit, I found this great recipe for vegan smoothies, and made some for you, hope you like it.

What is your favourite drink?
Ah, these are tough questions, Eniko. I don’t drink alcohol. At least, I don’t anymore. I try to keep as healthy as possible. Even in my clubs, I stick to Coke.

What is your greatest fear?
I’d rather not talk about it, if you don’t mind. I already saw it realized and … well, the thought of anything happening to Dana sends me to very dark places.

What is your favourite colour?
he laughs It should be grey but it was recently replaced as my favorite color. I’m very fond of dark brown now, the color of Dana’s eyes.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he laughs again Eniko, does any romance hero come to your blog and admit to wearing clothes to bed?

What is the perfect romantic date?
Despite the decadence of my surroundings at Vice, my needs are basic. I like the idea of minimalism. For me, an ideal date would be Dana, a beautiful nature trail and time to enjoy it. he winks Of course, I would never say no to a firm mattress.
Or a booth in Covet VIP room? That was hot, I have to say.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I don’t get ticklish. he taps me on the nose Did you hear me? Not ticklish at all, especially not under my arm!

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Dana has this amazing perfume. She says it’s a custom blend. It smells like flowers and fruit and powder, all at once. Whatever it is, I need to buy the factory where they make it. I’ll probably sound like romantic fool, but she smells like the gardens at Versailles.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
It’s never just one characteristic. It’s the way the woman carries herself and the light in her eyes. When I first met Dana, we were both in a bad place, but there was a spark in her. Of course, I’m also obsessed with her beautiful dark skin and those legs.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
You mean I get to talk about Dana some more? Awesome. She’s been in my life for over a year now and we’ve set a date.

What is one word that best describes her?
Heat. My Dana is pure heat.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
It sure is. Ms. Leo tells me my book is number 2 in the series. I hear a third may be in the works. In fact, I’ve heard rumblings that the heroine of that book will be Marissa Flores, my colleague and the designer at Vice. I’ve known Marissa for a while and she’s always been tight-lipped about romance. I can’t wait to see her get her turn.

oooh I can’t wait to read her story, I like her, she is a good friend to you from what I’ve read so far. Thank you Alex for stopping by and for the chat.

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

Hope you enjoyed the chat. I certainly did 😉

VegasSins-2covers

As Alex mentioned, he hails from Covet, book 2 in the Vegas Sins Series by one of my fave authors Rosanna Leo.

I LOVE these covers, intense and beautiful, just like the stories.

Covet Dana teaser

Alex just acquired Sin City’s hottest casino hotel, and he’s determined to make Vice the ultimate pleasure palace—along with the mind-blowing new club, Covet.

But behind the successful entrepreneur façade, Alex struggles with a past that continues to haunt him, day in and day out.

After a surprise hookup with a beautiful stranger, he thinks he’s found the perfect distraction…until she walks out, leaving him with an unfamiliar ache which the pulse-pounding nights of excess at Covet can’t soothe.

When their paths cross once again, Alex realizes Dana is so much more than a mere distraction. He wants her—all of her.

But having her means he needs to face both her demons … and his own.

My review – 5 stars

I was so happy when I heard that we get to go back to Vegas. Ms. Leo didn’t disappoint, as usual the story is heartfelt and engaging. As the story unfolds, the layers reveal complex characters some that we get to love, some that we get to hate or pity.
I did fall in love with Alex and the way he got Dana to love him. They love, they heal, they protect each other. They get their HFN ending. The one thing I would have added to tie the loose ends, or satisfy my need for revenge, is what happened to the reporter and the driver. I guess will have to imagine that 😉

I hope you give this series a chance, you will not regret it.

Here is a short excerpt

“Ms. Hamill?”
“I’m sorry. What were you saying?”
“Just that we do work closely with a number of the other hotels on the Strip. It’s a busy week in town, but I’ve heard there might be openings at the Flamingo and Excalibur. I would be happy to see if we can find you something at one of those properties.”
Okay. The time for calm was officially over. “Excalibur, huh? We booked Vice, the most sophisticated hotel on the Strip, and you want to send me to a place that has a fire-breathing dragon in the lobby?” Dana checked the clerk’s name tag. “I’m sorry, Cecilia. That just won’t do.”
“But we have no rooms.”
“Check again. I bet if you try really hard, you’ll find a couple.”
“You don’t understand—”
“Oh, I understand, believe me. Did I mention I work for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Association? I’ve spent the last few years bringing major conventions to the Strip. I have worked with every hotel and have sent a great deal of revenue in Liam Doyle’s direction.”
“Mr. Doyle no longer owns Vice. Mr. Markov is the new owner.”
Dana’s frustration erupted in a crazed laugh. “You’re missing the point, Cecilia! I’m trying to tell you I have done this before. Now I’m not blaming you. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, someone else mislaid my reservation. Mistakes happen. Systems go down. I get it. I’m just asking you to fix it. Maybe you could bump someone else and send them to Excalibur.”
“Ms. Hamill.”
“Look, we’re wasting time here. I want to speak to a manager.”
“I’m sure my manager would be happy to talk to you but she’s in a meeting.”
“Great.” Dana’s voice cracked. “Please. I don’t like causing scenes. I’ve had…a lot on my plate lately. Woman to woman, help me out here.”
A deep voice sounded over Dana’s shoulder. “Maybe I can help.”
Dana froze.
That voice.
The last time Dana heard a voice like that, it was cursing softly in her ear as its owner fucked her into oblivion.
Help me, Jesus.
She turned, degree by degree. It couldn’t be.
And yet, everything she remembered was there. The cat eyes, the sun-kissed hair, the long, hot body.
This Alex looked different, though. The stubbled, jeans-clad creature from Joe’s was gone. He’d been replaced by a man who held himself with an easy authority. Dressed in an expensive grey suit, he looked as if he’d be just as much at home on a catwalk as in a casino. His short hair shimmered under the hotel lights, a deep golden color that would make most trophy wives salivate. His lips compressed as he took in the shock on her face.
Various emotions flickered in his pale eyes. Disbelief, concern, even anger. She understood them all and would have felt them too.
It was the last emotion that caused her heart to sink.
Indifference. The Alex from her fantasies now looked at her with indifference.

If you missed my chat with Ms. Leo in 2015, you can check it out here.

The Gift of Goodbye

Hello and welcome!

Today I would like to introduce you to a book I read recently and found it compelling.

gift-cover

How do you explain Alzheimer’s Disease to kids? Start with a bedtime story that will help them process what’s happening to Grandma.

“This heartfelt exploration of Alzheimer’s Disease is the perfect read to help your children develop an understanding of the effects of the illness on your loved ones.” E.M. Fitch

Caleb will do anything to protect the people he loves–and his grandma is top of that list, especially now that she has Alzheimer’s disease.

After Emma accidentally insults Grams, Caleb lashes out and makes fun of Emma’s dyslexia. Emma’s best friend Sydney rushes to her defense, starting a girls versus boys cartoon war that involves the whole sixth grade. Pencils ready, students of Whitman Elementary, prepare to battle!

When Sydney starts taking art lessons from Grams, she connects with Grams in a way that Caleb can’t. Love, lost memories, and new friendships enable powerful conversations to happen, especially about the toughest topic of all–Alzheimer’s disease.

From the Author
Watching a loved one progress through the stages of Alzheimer’s disease is difficult, and talking about it is even harder. That’s why I wrote THE GIFT OF GOODBYE. It’s a story for kids, about kids, not about Alzheimer’s disease. A book that was primarily focused on dementia would have been too sad for children to read. But I know that there are lots of kids in America right now who are witnessing Alzheimer’s change their grandma or grandpa. If THE GIFT OF GOODBYE helps one reader feel less alone, then my effort was worth it.

I finally managed to post a short review on Amazon and Goodreads after 4 tries where my Kindle was not cooperating and managed to delete THREE TIMES o_O the review right before hitting the submit button. GAH

My review: 5 stars
Ms. Cypress gave us a great book that touches a few sensitive topics, but is easy to read and compelling. Follows a group of children, each dealing with various challenges. One family dealing with Grandma’s fading to Alzheimer’s, another family falling apart after the Father’s accidental death and then the family where the dyslexic daughter facing challenges at school because of it. I recommend this book to readers of all ages.

Alzheimer is a terrible disease and it affects so many families, including my own. There is so much more going on in the book, friendship, young love, betrayal, bullying and child abandonment and the emotions evoked are many: sadness, anger, disgust, fear, indignation, mixed with hope, love, joy, reflection. The author did a great job without making it depressing and showing a different perspective of looking at things that are hard to see or bear. I think children can relate to the story and might help them deal with their feelings, but as I wrote in my review, it can be read by readers of any age.

My Chat with Cassie!

Hello and welcome!

I have few BGF (book girlfriends), usually is the hunks that grab my attention.

One of the few joined me for a chat today and we are celebrating.

Welcome Cassie!

What is your full name?
Cassie Wilson

Do you have a nickname?
I guess Cassie is technically a nickname, but no one has ever called me Cassandra. Except my mom when I was in trouble as a kid.

What is one word best describes you?
Energetic. Positive. Passionate.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m going to work at the Flatiron Five club tonight, so I’m wearing my fave dancing shoes. They’re black leather thigh-high boots with spike heels and I think they go perfectly with my little black, short dress. It drives Reid crazy when we meet again at the beginning of our story, because he can’t see exactly where the boots end. I’m going with that. I’ve twisted up my long blonde hair and painted my nails red, to match my lipstick. It’s going to be hot at the club tonight!

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes. She made me share a big secret with Reid, one I’ve been keeping for a very long time – even though I didn’t like it at the time, I felt better afterward. Lighter. Maybe it was time to let that old stuff go.
That was quite a secret, I am glad you were able to share it, I know it helps.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Reid. He makes all these one-liners, deadpan, and cracks me up every time.

What is your favourite dessert?
Something sweet and thick, like chocolate syrup, but I don’t want it on ice cream.
I like how you think LOL

What is your favourite drink?
Something fizzy – like sparkling water, or champagne.

Muscateller-glasses

Champagne is mine too, here is my fave sparkling wine, had a bottle chilled to celebrate today. Last year’s crop was pretty good.

What is your greatest fear?
It was going back to Montrose River, the town I couldn’t wait to leave. I guess I need a new fear now.

What is your favourite colour?
Red. Or black. Or both together.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing.

What is the perfect romantic date?
One that ends with great sex.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Ha! Of course, I am, but I’ll never tell where!

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Fried chicken from Pappy’s in Montrose River. It used to make me think about hanging out with my friend, Tori, at my uncle’s garage and eating take-out in the summer, but now it makes me think about jumping Reid in Tori’s kitchen.
That scene is really hot!

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes. His hands. His smile. The way he looks at me.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Reid Jackson.

What is one word best describes him?
Unexpected. she winks
You can say that again!

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Some Guys Have All the Luck is book 4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke. Book 5 will be Going to the Chapel, will be published September 27, 2018 and book 6 will be Bad Case of Loving You, to be published January 22, 2019. It’ll be Theo’s book and I’m looking forward to learning more about his unrequited love. I also have the first tattoo that Chynna gave away at F5 and which launched the Secret Heart Ink series. I guess hmm I have the tattoo that proves her right, that this tattoo given on a full moon brings love to the person who wears it.

I am excited by what is coming! Thank you Cassie for dropping by, I really enjoyed your story and the chat. Maybe you can put a good word in to Chynna and she will agree to come for a chat.

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

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat.

Flatiron5-covers

As Cassie mentioned she hails from the Flatiron Five Series by Deborah Cooke and Some Guys Have All the Luck is her story, which released today.

CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Cooke!

Adding Reid to my BBF list, Ty has competition for number 1 spot in the series now, or maybe I am taking both. Remember Ty? He chatted with me back in December 2016, if you missed it check it out here.

Cassie has everything she wants…
Cassie Wilson’s life is pretty much perfect, with a dream job, great partners—and the freedom to do whatever she wants whenever she wants. The last thing she wants is to go back to Montrose River, the town she couldn’t wait to leave, and revisit the past. But when her oldest friend asks her to be a godmother, Cassie sees an opportunity to make a difference in Emily’s life. Maybe teaching Emily to dream big will be her legacy. Besides, one weekend in the Midwest won’t kill her. She’ll be back in Manhattan so quickly that they won’t have time to miss her at Flatiron Five.

banner

Reid knows what he wants…
Reid Jackson is convinced that luck has to be made. Keeping his eyes open has been the secret to his success, along with a lot of hard work. He might have come from the wrong side of the tracks, and he might have a reputation of being bad to the bone, but he’s built success after a major setback. When Cassie Wilson comes breezing back into town, Reid is ready to find out if she really is different from everyone else. Cassie is everything he imagined. She turns his expectations inside out—and shakes up his life. When Cassie decides she wants more than a fling, Reid knows he’s not the man she wants him to be—can Cassie change his mind and convince him to hope for more?

My review: 5 stars

Loved this new story, it has the usual smooth flow and the organic unfolding of the story I love in Ms. Cooke’s books. 

I really enjoyed learning more about Cassie and her past, she has quite a story. To carry that secret for so long… WOW
Reid is such a lovable guy and he came so far despite his childhood. Loved the chemistry between them, hot and sweet and real without the angst and drama so prevalent these days.

It is true in real life too, we only get to know somebody as far as they allow us to see or sometimes as far as we are willing despite having all the clues in front of us.

I can’t recommend this series enough.

Book 1, ‘Simply Irresistible‘ is on sale for a limited time.

My Chat with Riven

Hello and welcome!

Today, I just wanted to stay home, put my feet up, watch a good movie and relax. Nothing more, well, nothing that I can write about on an open forum at any rate. 😉

Imagine my surprise earlier today when I get home after doing a grocery trip, there is a note waiting for me on my front door.Dinner is on me. If you are interested, call this number. They will give you the address and send a car for you, dress accordingly. Riven

Right, as if I am going to believe this. I enter my apartment and the smell of hot food teases my nose and I suddenly feel hungry. The only problem is, my son ate it all. He looks at me in surprise and comments, I thought you were going out, or so the note on the bag said, so I ate it all. There wasn’t that much anyway.

Right, this is the ‘hollow leg’ talking, there is never much of anything and what there is, gets absorbed. I swear that teenager inhales the food and goes looking for more. It did smell good though. I look at the number on the note in my hand and think I have nothing to lose. I will give it a try and see what happens. At the very least, I might get a free meal out of this. I dial the number and a man with a slightly nasal sounding voice answers. I might sound prejudiced, but usually that type tends to be stuck up.

Good evening, you have reached The Chase Restaurant. What can we do for you?

I roll my eyes and then answer, I was given this number and told to mention Riven has instructions for me.

Of course, Ms. Eniko, I will have the limousine dispatched for you immediately. It will arrive in a half an hour. Our dress code is formal, I will tell Mr. Riven that you are on your way.

I hang up and my eyes grow big… It is real… and The Chase? Oh yum, and I am starved.

Dress code, formal… of course… and in half an hour. I am going to break the speed limit getting ready and making sure I am not late for my ride.

I smile as a stretch limousine arrives at the front door exactly a half an hour later and breath a sigh of relief that I beat it by a mere minute and a half. So, I am a little out of breath, but I am having dinner at The Chase.

A gorgeous dark haired male meets the limo and opens the door with a bow and a smile that makes me sigh, amongst other things. Man, this man should have a warning label on him. I can’t help but return his smile with one of my own and he offers his hand to help me out of the back of the car. Of course you know I am not going refuse his help, right? Snort. I am feeling sooooo shameless right now. The moment I am out of the car he tucks my hand onto the crook of his arm and leads me into the restaurant.

I hope you don’t mind my sending for you the way I did, I am Riven, Teryka’s husband. Merika said I am to treat you right, or she will make my life interesting in ways I don’t want to think about for the next year. She didn’t tell me that I would be greeting a lady though. I am very impressed. Teryka says to say hello, and she sent a little surprise for you, homemade truffles made with the best chocolate she could bring through the portal into our world. She says you are partial to them.

Merika knows me well. Many thanks to her.

Tyrus and Kodac have added a little something for you too, which left me to gift you with flowers. As I never know what to order for a woman, I have told the florist to sent a couple dozen blush peonies to your home. Unfortunately, they won’t arrive until tomorrow.

Oh those are my fave!

I have been told by a little birdie a few of your favourite dishes, Calamari, Veal Masala and Filet Mignon. They are preparing them all so you can take your pick or try them all if you wish.

fl_marsalasource

I feel spoiled already, and so hungry. My stomach makes a noise agreeing heartily.

The man has an slight accent that I can’t place, but I bet it could slay dragons. I am going to enjoy this… 

We chatted well into the night and I managed to get some answers out of him. Read on and find out.

What is one word best describes you?
Generally I would say down to earth, but something has thrown me off my game lately.

maninsuitsource

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I have found that while I am more comfortable wearing work clothes, I do like my suits. I am wearing a dark grey Gucci 3 piece suit at the moment. What do you think? Does it suit me?
It sure does… very well!

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
The way she carries herself. You can always tell if she is confident with who she is deep inside.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
There is and always will be only one woman for me, Teryika. My wild rose.

Thank you Riven for the lovely evening. Sending hugs to Merika and Teryka and regards to Kodac and Tyrus.

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

I hope you enjoyed my little surprise dinner. I sure did.

Teryka-cover

 

Riven hails from Teryka Rose, book 2 in the ‘Daughters of the Valley Trilogy‘ by M. A. Abraham releasing on July 31, 2018.

Teryka Rose is Tyrus and Merika’s youngest, and the apple of Kodac’s eye. She is beautiful, powerful and popular. This is something she takes in stride, along with the training her parents offer. She believes she has her life all mapped out, until life throws a twist at her in the shape of Riven and his friends.

Riven took one look at Teryka Rose soon after she had been born and he knew she would one day be his, although that would be a long time in the future. The years have passed and he is ready to settle down, only she has another love interest. This is going to take some creative planning on his part and a little help from his friends to change.

As she her world feels like it is falling apart around her, Teryka decides to make changes. With the help of her mother, she moves into Merika’s old apartment in Los Angeles, and gets a job as an actress. The last thing she expects is for Riven to follow her, or end up in a starring role in the same show, but his being by her side feels so right, and she can only wonder how that happened.

My review – 5 stars
I fell in love with the Valley and its people in book 1 and book 2 is feeding my addiction to this wonderful world the author created. Destined to be together, Teryka and Riven do not have an easy journey. Loved Riven and we get to see another side of him. Kodac is still full a mischief, he is still my fave secondary character. Great continuation of the series. I can’t wait for the next one.

To celebrate the new release, Ms. Abraham is giving away an ebook copy of ‘Teryka Rose’. Tell me what is your fave dish. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a name from the comments on release day, after 3pm on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Good luck!

In the Pursuit of Charity by Alexandria Sure

He expected her to recognize him.

He expected her to be seduced by his charms.

He expected her to fall for him.

Expectations are a funny thing …

When his parents named him Herbert Lincoln James, they already had expectations that Linc would attend an ivy league university and go into politics. Linc didn’t. As captain of his swim team, he was expected to win the big relay to carry his swim team to the state championship for the first time in decades. Linc didn’t. Society expected him to walk past her. He couldn’t.

She expected him to see through her.

She expected him to make her into a joke.

She expected him to be cruel.

Expectations are a funny thing …

ITPOC_teaser 5

My review: 4 stars

I enjoyed reading this contemporary love story about a young man falling for the woman so different from what his family or society expects him to be with. Being part of high society means he has to follow the rules, but Linc falls hard for Alexis. His eyes are opened seeing how society treats those that are not following “the rules”. My heart was breaking for Alexis, who is ‘big’ by society’s standards, seeing how she had a hard time trusting that Linc was really interested in her and not taking part of a cruel prank.

The author did a great job portraying the emotional rollercoaster they both are on being at the opposite ends of the society’s scale and both dealing with the rules forced on them.

One minus is that it ends in a cliffhanger with no warning leaving me with a sad feel thinking… nooo it cannot end like this!!!! I hope the next book is coming soon.

Excerpt

In all the past ceremonies Zara had attended, the collar lay open. The open collar is the symbol of the Council’s approval of the match between the first-born daughter of a Council member and the son of a Council member from a different sect. The key to the collar is the symbol of ownership for the first-born’s daughter by her Dom. The history of this ceremony requires the collar to be unlocked, the key ready to be presented to the Dom.

When one’s life has been filled with inevitability, processing surprises becomes difficult. Zara’s mind sifts through all of the ceremonies that she has attended, fast-forwarding to the point when the open collar is picked up and placed around the “birthday girl’s” neck. In every memory, the collar is lying open before it is picked up.

Zara’s breathing becomes labored. All thoughts of the collar evaporate as someone steps into the center of the circle.

Shoes.

What can be determined about a man, a Dom-to-be, by his polished, square-toed black shoes?

Nothing.

The dress restricts any attempts at taking a deep cleansing breath, so Zara tries employing a technique taught during years of training to settle her thoughts. The curiosity to sneak a peek at the man now standing next to her becomes an overwhelming challenge destroying her control.

The need to look at his face begins to vibrate through her entire body. Moving would bring her mother’s throat clearing and a definite lecture the moment they are alone later at the celebration. Zara tries another deep breath in an attempt to settle. It doesn’t work.

Discovering what he looks like will not change my future.

Add it to your Goodreads TBR list, and I hope you will give it a chance because it is worth it.

Here is my review – 4 stars
An interesting take on the BDSM genre, it is not your usual story. No revealing scenes, only glimpses of the world where those that are born into it, raised in it, and men are trained to become dominants and the women to become their submissives. This could be read by almost anybody who loves YA romance. It is a charming story of coming of age of a young woman that is being given a choice when she didn’t expect it. This world, mostly secret with no interference from the ‘outsiders’, has an almost cult-like feel. The main characters are strong, interesting and easy to love especially Garrett, the Dom who chose Zara to become his submissive. He breaks the rules for her giving her a choice she didn’t expect. Will his generosity pay off? Let’s just say it ends with a HEA, my fave kind of endings. Loved the secondary characters, Zara’s new friends, Garrett’s parents and best friends are a great addition to the story.

Check out the trailer …

I had the pleasure to meet the author at the Romancing the Falls book signing in Niagara Falls in May 2017. She was handing out fans to all off us waiting to enter the book signing, bless her heart! Now I know that pic shows the dress Zara is wearing to a fundraising event, isn’t it sexy?
