Cd Brennan chattin' it up on Nice Girls Reading Naughty Books

December 5th, 2014

I'm going to be talking with Bernadette Walsh TONIGHT on Nice Girls Reading Naughty Books on Blog Talk Radio this Friday at 9:30 pm EST.


http://www.blogtalkradio.com/bernadettewalsh/2014/12/06/nice-girls-reading-naughty-books--cd-brennan


I'm not sure what she has in store for me. All I'm worried about is not dropping the F-bomb. I have such a potty mouth!

Love if everyone could check it out. I just hope the boys are sound asleep by then. The DH is away for work in the Bahamas, the bastard. LOL

So grab a cuppa, cozy up, and have a listen. I'm sure I'll make a wally of myself somehow. That's worth a laugh on a Friday night!

**If you don't get a chance to pop around tonight, you can listen at the link above anytime! xo

NEW RELEASE - DARE TO LOVE

Alleigh Burrows is a passionate writer and reader of romance novels. Her debut regency historical, Dare to Love, is now available!!




DARE TO LOVE Blurb
The only tangible benefit Dare Landis has of finally claiming the title of Marquis of Raynsforth will be that the current marquis has finally gone to the Devil where he belongs. Until then, Lord Landis will continue to enjoy life on his own terms…as a heartless rake who’s beholden to no one.

Nivea Horsham knows there’s more to Dare than he reveals to the world.  She’s loved him since her older brother brought his ridiculously handsome friend home from school all those years ago. But getting him to notice her has proven to be an impossible endeavor.

Can Nivea shatter Dare’s carefully crafted facade and show him how to love?

Author Bio
Alleigh Burrows loves romance novels. For years she tore through anything she could find—mainly regency romances, but would never pass up a hot Navy SEAL, an overbearing Scotsman, or shape shifting feline.
After reading a particularly intriguing series, she decided she, too, could write a romance novel. How hard could it be? She had worked in communications for years. So, she started writing Dare to Love while working full-time and raising two teenagers. Not surprising, it was slow going.
Fast forward five years. The kids go off to college, and she was finally able to dedicate time to her husband, her cat, and her writing.
Dare to Love is Alleigh’s first novel, but it won’t be her last. Be sure to visit alleighburrows.com or @alleighburrows to see what her next project will be.

Double Cover Reveal for Juliette Cross


WELCOME to Miss JULIETTE CROSS



SEALED IN SIN

The Vessel Trilogy, Book 2
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: April 21, 2015

Blurb:

Sin can look an awful lot like heaven.

One demon prince may be festering in the bowels of the soul eater Cocytus, but Genevieve’s troubles are far from over. Prince Bamal, demon lord of New York City, still wants her. But this time, he wants her alive, to control her inherent power as a Vessel of Light. 

With Jude Delacroix off searching for the prophecy, Thomas—a guardian angel with sea-green eyes and an aura of winter woods—steps into the gap, offering her the power to protect herself.

Yet she hesitates, for the transfer of that power comes through a kiss. While Gen’s love for Jude is true, Thomas stirs a desire where there should be none. Thomas also knows Jude’s darkest secret and plans to use it, if necessary, to win Gen for his own.

While her Vessel power grows and more demon spawn creep from every dark corner of the world, one thing is certain—the Great War between the angels and demons is quickly approaching. And Gen is in a race against time to awaken her full power before the storm breaks.

Warning: Contains a demon hunter with dark secrets, a sexy angel with ulterior motives, and demonic creatures running amok.

BOUND IN BLACK

The Vessel Trilogy, Book 3
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: July 21, 2015

Blurb:

In the belly of the beast, strategy is useless.

Genevieve Drake is on a dangerous mission to find the soul collector, Lethe, and enter the deepest, darkest level of the underworld. No one has ever returned alive from the belly of a soul collector, but she will let nothing stop her from going after the precious treasure Lethe stole from her.

As she is tested against demon spawn and foul creatures of the underworld, each triumph strengthens her Vessel power—and drags her closer to a breaking point that could forever doom her to the abyss.

Meanwhile, with the full prophecy hurtling toward completion, the Dominus Daemonum strategize for the day Gen will battle Prince Bamal’s Vessel to the death, when the Great War between heaven and hell will begin.

But Bamal has a secret weapon. When he reveals it—and Thomas reveals his own hidden agenda—Gen may not have the strength to resist the temptation to fall into darkness, forsaking the fate of the world for her broken heart.

Warning: Contains malicious demons, sinister spawn, and a vengeful heroine with plans to send them all back to burning hell.

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Desiree Holt

November , 2014

So, what's this one all about? Well I'll tell you! We have to list four truths about ourselves. The fifth "fact", we will make up, and you, the guests, have to guess which one is untrue.

The s'mores have all danced as a Nut, and have now earned the right to jig as a S'more. 

So without further ado...

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Desiree Holt

Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams


1. I’m an obsessed football nut. Every weekend beginning in August I don’t answer my phone form Saturday morning to Sunday night.

2. I’ll go anywhere to see a cowboy-a rodeo, the nearby ranch, the little town where I live. If he’s naked, so much the better.

3.I could live on pizza and Chinese food, preferably delivered to my door so I can eat in my Betty Boop yoga oants and LaRue Tactical tee shirt.

4. My favorite song is Bartender by Lady Antebellum

5. I once had a huge crush on Kenny Rogers. I saw him in Las Vegas with The First Edition. Then he kept divorcing his wives and cheating with other women and even his music couldn’t keep me hangin’ on.

* * * *
I'm so absolutely chuffed to have the famous Miss Desiree back with me today. She's my kind of woman. I read her answers and thought, yep-yep-and-yep. Except the football, Miss Desiree. Sorry to say, I'm a die-hard rugby fan. Never really got into the football, but I know it's a huge appeal for most Americans. I'm with you on rodeos and cowboys. Sweet divine, I'm married and still daydream about the sexiness in cowboy boots and a hat. And there is nothing so great as delivered food so I can indulge in my baggy hoodie and yoga pants + Ugg boots, which I've worn until they have holes in the toes! And amen, sista, there is nothing more unappealing to me in a man than a cheater. Effin' bastards. There's a great Lady Antebellum song about two backpacking lovers. I love that one, because my books are all about traveling and love. Thus, Love for a Wandering Heart. What is the name of that one?

This is going to be a hard pick folks! But hey! First commenter who picks the small fib will get a $10 GC to Amazon!! Yippee! 

FINDING JULIA, Desiree Holt's latest sexy release is available now. Go on and get your copy! Loads of links on the Kensington site.  DESIREE HOLT

So, what's this one all about? Well I'll tell you! We have to list four truths about ourselves. The fifth "fact", we will make up, and you, the guests, have to guess which one is untrue.

The s'mores have all danced as a Nut, and have now earned the right to jig as a S'more. 

So without further ado...

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Jessi Gage

* * * *

It's my pleasure, Miss Jessi! Now, to your answers. Hmmm....
#1 I'm the same. Chap-stick or Carmex or something! Plus, some hand lotion. The feel of dry hands for me is like fingernails on a chalkboard. 
#2 This could be totally true. And I'll take a guess. Francis?
#3 Aw, that's sweet, because I think that means he's kind of a hero, eh? I definitely draw from my hubbie, too. 
#4 Everyone has their fixes on telly. Too true, girlfriend. Mine right now? Only because my husband watches it - Utopia. 
#5 I can believe that! I know folks that are addicted to it!

NEW RELEASE- Exposed to Passion by Gemma Brocato

Exposed To Passion (Five Senses Series Book #3) Gemma Brocato

           


Genre: Contemporary romance
Publisher: Kensington Books/Lyrical Press, Inc
Date of Publication: October 20, 2014
eISBN-13: 978-1-61650-616-2
eISBN-10: 1-61650-616-4
ASIN:
Number of pages: 329
Word Count: approx. 85,000
Cover Artist: Renee Rocco
Available in Digital and Print Formats

Book Description:
They walked through the shadows individually. Will they emerge into the light together?
Leading a vagabond life as a curator for a traveling photography exhibit translates to a lot of bad days for Rikki Salerno. But her trouble doubles when a careless high school student shoves her into a marsh. Being rescued by teacher Sam Kerrigan should have made things better, but Rikki’s inability to confess her true identity casts a shadow over their budding affair.
When Sam refuses an overly aggressive parent’s marriage proposal, she’s determined to ruin him. Not only does she doctor photos to make it look like Sam’s behaved inappropriately in front of students, she hacks the foundation website to reveal Rikki’s true identity. Faster than the blink of a shutter, Rikki’s focus changes from pursuing her full-color future to the black and white necessity of clearing Sam’s name.

Excerpt:
“Holy cow! Consider me seduced.” She didn’t recognize her own voice. Desire rasped through it, whispery and thick at the same time. Allowing her finger to slip from the steamy confines of his mouth, he pressed a kiss to her palm, then released his hold. She curled her hand into a fist around the kiss he’d left, hoping to hold onto the heat and lingering sensation.
 “Oh, Jesus. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have kissed you like that. It was too fast, wasn’t it? I mean, we only just met…but I thought, I mean, you seemed to want…and you didn’t say no. Christ, I’m so sorry.” Sam’s tone rattled with a misplaced apology. “I have no excuse. I’m a horndog.”
He eased her away from his chest and helped her to sit up, then pushed himself upright and scooted a respectful distance from her.
The apology in his tone and the loss of his body heat hit her like a cold slap. His words stung. He regretted kissing her. The tingly pulses zipping from her fingertip to her heart did nothing to tamp down the hurt. She hadn’t wanted him to stop. Normally the queen of snarky retorts, words failed her now.

About the Author:
Gemma's favorite desk accessories for many years were a circular wooden token, better known as a 'round tuit,' and a slip of paper from a fortune cookie proclaiming her a lover of words; some day she'd write a book. All it took was a transfer to the United Kingdom, the lovely English springtime, and a huge dose of homesickness to write her first novel. Once it was completed and sent off with a kiss, even the rejections addressed to 'Dear Author' were gratifying.
After returning to America, she spent a number of years as a copywriter, dedicating her skills to making insurance and the agents who sell them sound sexy. Eventually, her full-time job as a writer interfered with her desire to be a writer full-time and she left the world of financial products behind to pursue an avocation as a romance author.

Sundae With Nuts - Sayara St. Clair

October 12, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Sayara St. Clair!

Sundae with the Nut Sayara St. Clair

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
To be perfectly honest, I hate knickers! But I do don them before going out in public. And they are usually either of the cotton or lace variety.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
Well, depending on my mood, it would be either Dwayne (the rock) Johnson or Henry Cavill. Do I feel like running my hands all over those rock hard muscles or staring into those gorgeous eyes of blue? Hmmm, decisions, decisions…




3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Oh that’s easy, most definitely Spanish. I think a Spanish guy could read the phone book, a grocery list or Dr Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat, and it would sound like he’s talking dirty to me. “Si, si Senor. Say it again.”

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity.
This is so not exciting and exotic, but it was a bedroom. Well, it was exciting for me at the time, but you know what I mean.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
I believe in lust at first sight. Longing at first sight. Longing for love at first sight. But not actually love. I think that comes a bit later. You’ve got to give it at least a couple of minutes. He he. 

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Is twister considered a board game? If so, I say twister. Maybe with some oil to make it more … interesting, challenging, slippery?

7.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
This is really lame, but it’s what was playing at the time – I wanna sex you up by Color me Badd. I guess at least the title was fitting. But I have to tell you that I absolutely love Peter Cetera too. Oh, and Marvin Gaye.


8.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
Hawaii. There’s something magical about that place. Drinking lava flow cocktails, listening to ukulele music and watching the hula girls dance, while the sun sets on Waikiki beach. Love it.

9.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
After I finish screaming, jumping, crying dancing and laughing—all at the same time—I’ll book an amazing, extended holiday for my whole family. I live in a different country far away from my folks, so I love getting together with them.

10.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
I wanted to be a neurosurgeon. Seriously. When I stood up in front of the class and made that announcement, the kiddies all laughed at me. And then asked each other in whispers what the heck a neurosurgeon was. I ended up becoming a scientist. Then I did a couple of other things. Now I write erotic romance. Never in a million years would I have guessed the career path that I’ve actually taken!
 
And last but now least.

11.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Mocha almond fudge, with a swirl of whipped cream, hot fudge and nuts on top.

* * * *
Such a huge pleasure to have a fellow Aussie on board for my Nut this week. And what a beautiful name - Sayara St. Clair. I probably should have thought a bit harder on my own pseudonym.

Miss Sayara, I didn't mean to laugh, but when I was listening to "I Want to Sex You Up" on YouTube for the link, it just came out. Because I really believe in to each their own. It's just that mustache on the one fella and the way they did that chicken dance thing - ooh la la! Okay, I will refrain from raggin' on your love song anymore. 

What really interests me in the story in between the scientist and the erotic romance author. How does one transition in those professions? :-) But it was very noble of you to want to be a neurosurgeon, glad you didn't let those shitty kids laughing at you stop you from reaching the stars! 

And hey! A kindred spirit, another who does not believe in love at first sight. But we are in the minority, Miss Sayara, most of my Nuts firmly believe. And the love stories they have behind that belief should be enough for any skeptic, even myself!

Sayara St. Clair's latest release, HURT ME, HEAL ME, sounds HOT! And we are talking Taboo sizzling hot. If you are looking for an erotic BDSM, then click the links below!

Sundae With Nuts - Sharon Struth

September 21, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Sharon Struth!

Sundae with the Nut Sharon Struth

1. What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Like Jamie Lee Curtis, I might be a sucker for them all. Including brogues (Outlander is killing me!) My husband speaks German, enough to converse, and one day he said to me in his always gentle and sweet voice “Was machst du, meine Liebe?” (What are you doing, my dear?”).  I knew “Liebe” was a term of endearment so I DID NOT respond with “What does it look like I’m doing?” See, an accent goes a long way? Also, it’s sad to me that the German language is perceived as so harsh when it’s the person delivering the words that makes any language shine.

2. Do you believe in love at first sight?
At one point in my life, I’d have said no. And I’m not just saying this to score points with my husband, but the instant I saw him, I knew he was special and felt connected to him. After one date, I knew he was the guy for me.

3.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
This isn’t a “real” destination, but I find a snowy winter night with the fireplace lit, a great movie playing and my sweetie at my side pleases me on so many levels. I just realized that in Share the Moon, the book opens in the fall, but the love builds during some of the worst snow seen in Northwest New England in decades. It gives the characters a chance to keep each other warm, right?

And last but now least.

4.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Chocolate. When I was growing up and my family went out to get ice cream, my sister would pour over the flavors as if it were going to be the last time she’d ever get a cone. I’d read them all too…and every single time, order chocolate.

* * * *
Ah, but your romantic destination is a real place, Miss Sharon! And yes, I would have totally agreed with you. There was nothing better when my husband and I started dating when we lived in Ireland than a bottle of red, turf burning in the fireplace, and cold lashing outside - sometimes snow, but rarely in Ireland. We used to cuddle on the couch all the time. Now with 2 young boys in a small house, we liken ourselves to crazy during the winter months. Honestly. So that's the last thing I would think of these days. LOL

The majority of my Nuts believe in love at first sight, just like you Miss Sharon. I'm a skeptic and a scientist by nature, so how did I end up writing romance? 

And yes, I'm half German, and the German language and people are beautiful. Especially Bavaria where I've spent a good deal of time!

* * * *
Miss Sharon Struth has an heartfelt contemporary romance out at the moment, called Share the Moon. Not only an awesome title, but a great story. Iv'e read it and loved it!! Available in both print and digital.


Enjoy Share the Moon's book trailer here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GczH6uBi1og

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Brynna Curry

September 14th, 2014

So, what's this one all about? Well I'll tell you! We have to list four truths about ourselves. The fifth "fact", we will make up, and you, the guests, have to guess which one is untrue.

The s'mores have all danced as a Nut, and have now earned the right to jig as a S'more. 

So without further ado...

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Brynna Curry

Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams

1.I love anime. Inuyasha, Dragonball Z, Witchhunter Robin, Trigun and Sailor Moon are my favorites. My daughter Kayla and I think the ending themes for Inuyasha are so lovely in fact, that I bought the music and googled the lyrics to the songs online so we could learn them. I can sing four of the seven songs in Japanese and get the words right, if not the intonation. I’m not entirely sure what the words mean, but the heart is in the music. Music is universal. 

2.From 7th grade onward, I had a 99% all black wardrobe. The remaining garments were either red, blue or purple. This style choice garnered a rather undesirable nickname from the mean girls…the undertaker. 

3.From the time I was a baby, my father, a band director, pushed music on me. Fortunately for me, I loved music and absorbed everything he said like a sponge. By the time I was in eighth grade, I could play trumpet, flute, piccolo, French horn, marching French horn (it’s entirely different), saxophone, drums, and a little piano. Not only that, but I played well enough to medal in trumpet (my favorite) and flute during sectionals.  Because I spent so much time watching practices, I picked up the majorette and flag routines. More than once I had to trade in itchy wool for a glittery costume to stand in for a sick majorette or color guard. I was in the band  until my senior year, when I decided to do something different and quit band to solo in the choir.  I loved singing. I still do. I was really good. Probably not so much anymore. No one hears me sing now except the walls, Kayla, and the steering wheel. 

4.My first manuscript was both wonderful and terrible. It’s about the spirit of an evil man that torments a family for generations, time travel and love that endures. I knew it was terrible. I never tried to publish it. It served a purpose though and allowed me to escape a bad time in my life. One day, I’ll rewrite it and see if I can make it shine. For now, it’s in a locked file, buried where no one will ever see it. 

5.I’m a girly girl. I love to shop. I’m obsessed with shoes. I have tons of them. I never leave the house without being dressed to the nines. 

Thanks for inviting me to be here today!  Okay, readers, can you spot the fake? It’s so fake it’s my antithesis.  Good luck.

* * * *
Oh, and they'll need it! My breakdown:
#1 I've never really been into anime but know loads of friends that are. It's definitely a genre that I should at least investigate. It's huge, and it's passing me by. Especially after what Miss Brynna has to say about it. Sounds like a world in itself! And how this be the fake with such intimate detail? Well, Brynna is a successful writer. Keep that in mind with your guessing!
#2 LOL, I went through a blank punk stage, too! And I still wear a lot of black. So very Jolie-esque. Without the figure, of course. And the boobs. And the money. And without Brad Pitt. 
#3 Hey, I played the trumpet too! I was a huge band geek. Not saying that you were...of course! :-)
#4 Okay, this one is for the Curry fans out there. Someone must know if this was her first book or not. Bang it in, girls!
#5 Really?? Could this be the antithesis? It's so hard to know when we only get to chat with our friends in a virtual environment. As much as I'd love a cuppa tea with Miss Brynna, I've never had the pleasure to see her walk up in a pair of Jimmy Choo's.

* * * *

Today, the S'mores is part of Miss Brynna's Elemental Magic tour. Let's get it on!

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Sarah Hegger

September 7th, 2014

So, what's this one all about? Well I'll tell you! We have to list four truths about ourselves. The fifth "fact", we will make up, and you, the guests, have to guess which one is untrue.

The s'mores have all danced as a Nut, and have now earned the right to jig as a S'more. 

So without further ado....

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Sarah Hegger

Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams

Oh, yay, I’m a s’more! Okay five facts about me, one of which is a blatant, no hold barred, not even going to blush LIE. If you’re the first reader to get it, I’ll give you your choice of either of my released books – The Bride Gift or my newly released, Sweet Bea. You can check them both out on MY WEBSITE and take your pick. Please be sure to leave me a way to get hold of you next to your guess.

Let the layering begin:

1. I love to give my own interpretation to a fancy dress theme. I went to an Arabian Nights party dressed as a Saudi oil sheik and a James Bond party as a Russian border guard in thigh high boots.



2. An ex-boyfriend used to say I ate like a bird, half my body weight every day. I once ate an entire 18-inch pizza without giving a bite to anyone else.

3. I come from the Welsh Edwards line, but the family name is only half the truth, because we are related under the blanket as the bastard line of the Earl of Durham.

4. My husband sucks at special dates, I mean really sucks. He forgot my birthday, or remembered it wrong seven years in a row. Even my brother in law gave up on reminding him.

5. In my acting days, I was doing a travel program called “Wish you Were Here” and was charged by an enraged black rhino when our jeep got between him and his cows.

      Okay, go on then - give it a go! Guess away! And hurry now, because the first one to get it right gets a free copy of one of her books. I haven't read The Bride Gift yet, but I have read Sweet Bea and absolutely loved it! I'm a bit of a historical romance nut. 

      So here goes my analysis! 
      1 I love that you added a picture and I invite any s'mores in the future to do the same. It just adds a bit more fun to the day, I reckon. Now, whether this is the falsehood or not? Boyo, this one would be my guess, but I could be completely wrong. It happens all the time. 
      2 I used to be able to eat that way when I was a young 20-something and riding my bike everywhere and rock climbing and all this shit. Now I'm over 40 and if I look at a pizza it adds to my belly muffin 2 inches. But girl, if you tell me that you can still eat like that now and not gain a kilo...well, I might just have to put a hit out on you. LOL
      3 Nothing wrong in being a bastard. IMHO
      4 I can totally believe this because my asshat husband does the same shit.
      5 Whether this is true or not, I'm just impressed you were an actor! Can I have your autograph? 

Sarah is a gem and one of those authors that gives everything 100% on everything, including a great story for her readers. Do pick up a copy of Sweet Bea because I adored it so much.

Sundae With Nuts - Christa Maurice

August 24th, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Christa Maurice!

Sundae with the Nut Christa Maurice

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
I have a wonderful pair of leopard print stretch lace that I break out for special occasions and whenever I need to feel super.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
Fantasy male? Hmmm. Either Steve Perry circa 1985 when he was growing his hair back in after that odd short cut and the mustache from the Frontiers tour or Rick Savage circa 1989-90 when he’d toned down a little in his personality and so had his hair. I don’t think I could be with a man could maintain more lift on his hair than I can.



3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Spanish. When I worked in Chile I had a boy in class who just made me crazy. I’m not normally cougar-iffic for the barely legal, but this “boy” was a physically fully mature rugby player complete with broad shoulders and a cute little butt. Most of the other teachers in school had problems with him, but not me. He liked me. He would pass me in the halls and say, “hello meees” and I would say hello and walk on clouds for an hour afterward. Then there was this guy Rey who managed the Baja Fresh near the Borders where I worked. He flirted with me endlessly on the days I came in without my then husband, but when the ex cam in with me, I was invisible. Somehow, that was even sexier. Mm, Spanish. Must go to Spain.

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity?
The front seat of my 1978 white Monte Carlo with the blue landau roof to the singer of a local band. Blond, blue eyed, half decent singer.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
Having fallen in it four or five times now, yup.

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Personally, I’d skip the board games and go straight for the Wii. The things you could do with Wii Fit yoga are intriguing.

7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements?
Not a toy girl.

8.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
My first boyfriend was a summer love and despite it being quite old at the time, I was really into the Journey song “Feelin’ That Way” for the line “when the summer’s gone / she’ll be standing by the lights / once she’d been to where she’s gone to / she will know wrong from right.”


9.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
I’ve traveled pretty extensively. Two years ago I had to have pages added to my passport. Rare is the place that I don’t see romantic potential in. Venice; The Maldives; Blackwater Falls, West Virginia; Paris; San Francisco; Prague. With the right attitude just about anywhere can be romantic. Except Fujairah. I couldn’t find any potential there.

10.Who was your first crush or kiss?
First crush was this boy in named Patrick. I remember riding the bus with him in kindergarten, but we weren’t in the same class that year. We were in the same class for 5th through 8th grade and then he changed schools.

11.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
Try to negotiate the soundtrack. Then go to Disney World.

12.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
I wanted to be Lorelei Shellist. I didn’t know who she was or what the perks of her life were, but I vividly recall seeing an ad she appeared in where she was wearing these great big sunglasses. I thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen and imagined that she had some kind of amazing life. Little did I know. Dated Don Henley right around Hotel California. Modeled for all the big designers. Engaged to Steve Clark until he died. Lived all over the world. Now she rents vacation properties in California and is a life coach. I did manage to live a low rent version of that life so I think I succeeded. I dated musicians and married an artist. I modeled for comics (less dieting involved.) I was nearly deported (she just escaped Milan; I just escaped Chile.) She lived in Japan. I lived in Korea. I’m considering buying rental property when I return to the US and I’ve been a teacher all my life. Plus, I have the big sunglasses. 

And last but now least.

13.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Ice cream? Who cares what flavor it is? I’ll heat up the hot fudge.

* * * *
Wow! I'm loving Miss Christa already. I think her and I would hit if off great over a glass of wine and reminiscing our travels. Plus, she loves Journey. Obviously, since it appeared in two answers. I hooked up everyone to listen to the Journey tune, but I pissed myself laughing at the high-waisted trousers and male camel-toe. But feckin' hell, he was sexy back in the day. I hope I got his bangs right in the picture, Miss Christa!

Good woman, you have special occasion knickers. I love this concept and plan on getting a few of my own soon. It's been too long since I perused Victoria's Secrets catalog. Because my boys are getting old enough now where I can actually go have a couple of special nights with my hubby. What you wear underneath is important to the progression of events as the evening gets on!

I hadn't a clue who Lorelei Shellist was so googled, of course. One of most interesting answers for that question. Christa, you take the Nut award home for that one! But I have to say, you are running some funky parallels in your lives. Way to make your dreams happen, girlfriend!

SATELLITE OF LOVE looks hot as hell. Pick up a copy or one of the other many fantastic books by Christa Maurice!

August 17th, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Desiree Holt!

Sundae with the Nut Desiree Holt!

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
Ooh! Silk with a little lace.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
How about two males?

3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Spanish. I really think it’s the language of love. I have a lot of Hispanic heroes and they have some very sexy phrases.

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity.
OMG! Well, I hope my kids aren’t reading this but on a blanket at the beach.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes. Still do.

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Scrabble using only erotic words.

7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements?
A proper collection of vibrators can do wonders for your sex life, especially used together.

8.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
This will really, really, really date me and I’ve got more than one song: 
I’ve Got You Under My Skin by Frank Sinatra and When I Fall In Love by Nat “King” Cole 


9.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
Acapulco and Bermuda, my two honeymoon destinations. Dancing in the waves at moonlight and drinking champagne.

10.Who was your first crush or kiss?
Hi name was Jackie, we were twelve and when we kissed goodnight our races locked. My dad had to come downstairs and unhook us. Bummer!

11.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
After Cd I’ll call my kids and open the $150 bottle of champagne chilling in my fridge for a special occasion.

12.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
A movie star, Boy, that dream died in a hurry!

And last but now least.

13.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Coffee, coffee, coffee.

* * * *
Ah, another Friday evening getting my Nut post ready, and it's an absolute beaut here in northern Michigan. Listening to the Nat King Cole link and the sun is just setting. Nice. Plus, I just got back from holidays, so feeling (a bit) refreshed and refueled. Tired as hell, but a good tired. Now, where is the wine?

This Sundae, I am totally chuffed (Irish = beyond excited) to have the lovely Miss Desiree for my Nut. She's a bloody legend in romance!! I feel I want to slag her like the rest of the Nuts as it is a bit of a rite of passage, but do I dare? LOL. No, probably not. A bit starstruck, I am. 

Miss Desiree, fab answer for #2, and even though the Nuts has been going now for years, it's an original! Now tell me, any two particular fine specimens you have in mind? Because I'd love that visual. And I don't know if its my change coming or what, but I've had some seriously kinky dreams lately. That just will add fuel to the fire.

Love your twist on Scrabble. Well played, Miss Desiree. For #10, how mortifying for you! Any boner that young man had swiftly vanished, I expect, with the approach of your father. But what a great story to tell NOW. :-) And yes, yes, please call me when you get approached for a movie and I'll pop over to share some of that champers. 

* * * *
Known the world over as the oldest living author of erotic romance, and referred to by USA Today as the Nora Roberts of erotic romance, do give it up for the lovely and talented Miss Desiree Holt. Her latest release, FINDING JULIA, with Lyrical Press/Kensington Publishing is just as hot as the rest. I know because I've read it!

Sundae With Nuts - Shannon MacLeod

August 10th, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Shannon MacLeod!

Sundae with the Nut Shannon MacLeod

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather? 
Mmm…there’s a question. Lace sometimes, spandex sometimes…was commando an option?

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both? 
I always like the rock star type guys – long or spiky hair, earrings, maybe a tat or two…especially if they’re hidden away. I love treasure hunts!




3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in  A Fish called Wanda) 
– that’s an easy one. A deep Scots (Gaelic) burr coming out of the right mouth makes me melt.

4.Do you believe in love at first sight? 
Absolutely!

5.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be? 
Twister!

6.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love? 
Def Leppard’s Love Bites, When I’m With you by Sheriff or Love of a Lifetime by Firehouse (almost dated their lead singer once – we made a date but stood each other up. We ran into each other again a few nights later,  both apologizing for not showing, not realizing the other didn’t either….awkward….LOL) 





7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements? 
There are so many that are special in so many ways. Goodness, now – how’s a girl to choose?

8.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there 
– aside from the idyllic visions of the beach at sunset or a heather strewn field in the Highlands, I’m a firm believer of making the best of what you got wherever you got it. An afternoon trip with your special guy/girl to the hardware store can be a romantic getaway if you apply the right amount of imagination *winks*

9.Who was your first crush? 
The Beatles, Jack Wild and David Cassidy, not necessarily in that order

10.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course 
– I’d likely scream myself hoarse then start planning the mother of all celebration parties.

11.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl? 
Rock star, pro surfer or storm chaser – preferably all three at once.

And last but now least.

12. Favorite ice cream flavor 
– I’m a chocoholic to the core.

Today, I have the pleasure of Miss Shannon's company, a fellow Lyrical/Kensington author and guest from across the pond. First, I have to say commando is always an option. So you're hot after the rockers, eh Miss Shannon? I'm pretty impressed you ALMOST dated the lead singer of Firehouse. So I had to put him in your fantasy male pic. LOL Now there, is some awesome hair. He's second from the left, right? One time I saw Weird Al Yankovic at Mardi Gras. That's my brush with fame. Oh, and I got in trouble from security for trying to take a sneaky picture of Ronan Keatinge at Bruxelles in Dublin.

I adored your answer to what you wanted to be when you were younger. Or in your case a combo-extravaganza. What  a heroine in a story you'd make! I'm also a deep chocolate lover, so I'm down with that, girl. And mother of all parties after such an announcement? AMEN. I'd be doing the same. Sometimes, I catch myself planning it already - who I would invite, what famous music band would play, what I would wear...sigh. But hey, you never know. One day.

I had no idea who Jack Wild was so had to google him. I so enjoy my Friday evenings getting these posts together. Pure enlightenment. Was it the Oliver or Melody stage that you fell for him? :-)

Miss Shannon MacLeod is an extremely talented writer. If you want to find a story that involves that deep Scottish burr she mentions with a bit of time travel, stop by her website or Kensington page!
