S'more Sundae With Nuts - Jessi Gage

October 26th, 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 - Jessi Gage

Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams

Oooh, I love S’mores. But not just with any chocolate. It has to be quality chocolate, like Godiva or Ghirardelli. 

Five Fun Facts about Jessi Gage. One of these is untrue. I will gift a free advance copy of Cole in My Stocking in any eformat to the first person to guess which of these facts is the lie.

1.I never leave home without a tube of Chap-Stick
2.I share a middle name with my mother and grandmother
3.I imbue every hero I write with a characteristic of my husband’s
4.I watch Orange is the New Black like an insatiable fiend
5.My favorite game is Candy Crush

Thanks for having me, Cd! I hope your readers found me high-quality-chocolate-delicious.

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!

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!
