Thank you so much for stopping by my place on the Happy Holidays Blog Hop! For my part, I’ll be sharing from my holiday, rock star romance book. And to celebrate, I’ll be giving away a Lush Bath Products gift box and a signed print copy of Sin’s Flower. Hope you enjoy this bit from Jaxon’s story, where we find him and Lily at the beach, talking…
When Jaxon James, a sexy rock star and struggling single-father, is invited to ditch California and spend Christmas in Tennessee with his estranged family, he hesitantly accepts for his young daughter’s sake. Continue Reading
Happy Monday, friends! It is officially winter and with holidays, festivities and snow falling on the site, I’m calling this month’s guest spotlights our Wintery Welcomes. I’ve asked everyone stopping by in December to tell us what their characters would most like to find under the tree and today that question falls to a truly outstanding, sweet and talented romance writer, Jessica Jayne! I love the first two books in her series and can’t wait to read this newest, Board Indiscretion. I think we’ve joined Jessica in the middle of asking our December question. Let’s see what they’re saying…
Jessica: A big thank you to Carlene for hostessing me today to help promote my new release, Board Indiscretion – book 3 (and the final book) in the Taking Advantage series. (You’re Welcome!) As part of coming here today, Carlene has asked me to share what the hero in Board Indiscretion – Mark Olson – would most like to see under the Christmas tree. So, I asked him. And here’s what he said:
Mark: Hmmmmm! If you would have asked me a few months ago, I would have told you a second chance at love. But I’ve got that now with Suzannah! How about two tickets to Hawaii? Jess, you did say you loved it over there! I’ve never been and I think Suzie would love it. Perhaps that will be our honeymoon destination… but she’ll have to say “yes” first. <he winks> Jess, why the deer-in-the-headlights look?! You okay? <Mark laughs>
Aww, Mark, you’re such a romantic! I’m thinking your lovely author can definitely make a Honeymoon in Hawaii happen. Happy Holidays!
Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!
Happy hump day, friends! With Christmas Eve only one week away and lots still to do to prepare, I entrusted this year’s final tease to Sin Pointe’s genius webmaster, Big Ben. Smoochies Benny for helping me today! Smoochies to our hostess, Sandra Bunino, for her year-round merriment and cheer! See y’all next year!
It looked like much hadn’t changed this year. He twisted his mouth to the side which Lily noticed right away. She reached way up and he felt her fingers softly try to rub his lopsided frown away. Not in a sexy way or anything, because that would be all kinds of wrong and Jaxon would murder him, but her touch felt really good. Sort of like most things he witnessed as the glorified errand boy between Sin Pointe and their women. Continue Reading
Happy Monday, friends! I know it’s not technically winter yet, but with holidays, festivities and snow falling on the site, I’m calling this month’s guest spotlights our Wintery Welcomes. I’ve asked everyone stopping by in December to tell us what their characters would most like to find under the tree. I just started reading Illicit Activity last night and it’s one of those that kicks off knee deep in an emotional, conflict-laden scene. I can’t wait to hear what these lovelies of J.R. Gray’s want most. Best part? Illicit Activity is a Free Read over at Evernight Publishing! Sending out warm, cozy wishes to you all and to Gray, thank you so much for visiting today. I think we’ve joined Gray in the middle of asking our December question. Let’s see what they’re saying…
Gray: What do you hope to find under the tree this year? Continue Reading
Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!
I’d like to send a special Happy Birthday shout out to our hostess, Sandra Bunino, you rock our socks! Thanks for organizing us each week for the tease. XOXO
Remember those childhood toys where we first learned to “walk the dog” and “travel around the world”? Well, that’s me. I’m a teasing yo-yo it seems! I was all set to share more from my wintery, reindeer WIP when I got the wonderful news from Evernight that the second book in the Sin Pointe series is now available in print! So to celebrate, I’m sharing a bit from Sin’s Flower. Here, Lily and Jaxon are away from the rest of the family’s Christmas gathering, trying so hard to find their way to that first kiss, and hoping that everyone won’t hate them for it. Hope you like…
She wasn’t going anywhere, ever.
How long would it be until he did that thing in that place again? She extended her jaw and neck, watching him looking at the spot just behind her ear, the inch of skin between it and her hairline. She’d already memorized how the tip of his nose felt, nudging around the area and then the ridge of his upper lip teasing behind it. Then the way his bottom lip chased all those flowery sensations away. And replaced them with hot, warm, sucking pressure.
Oh my God, again. She didn’t know how much longer she could watch the driveway, the cloudy gray sky, Grace’s dress form in the granny flat’s window that was creeping Lily out right now.
This was crazy. Continue Reading
Tonight I’m sitting here in my living room, watching a little Green Bay Packers football before bedtime. My dogs are already snoring loudly, the family kitten already has her eye on the Christmas decorations I’ve got setting out, and the Flores boys, well, they are lounging around in their skivvies, as usual, after a long hard day of work and school. If I took a look at the thermostat, it would read a toasty 70 degrees (welcome to San Diego winter), even at 8 o’clock at night. I should probably get my lazy bones up and go see if anyone has snuck a dirty dish into the sink when I wasn’t looking. But I won’t, because I’m just too darn comfy (and lazy) to move. Plus from my spot, I can smell the cinnamon and pine candles decking the fireplace mantle, even though they’re not lit. Those Glade holiday editions are potent puppies. It’s a perfectly normal evening here at Casa Flores.
Except for one thing…
This author girl is completely touched, humbled, giddy, overwhelmed and downright honored because something I wrote, well, you liked it! A lot! Enough so that you voted it your favorite “Happily Ever After” in this year’s Evernight Readers’ Choice Awards! And not just that, but you also voted Wicked Flower your second favorite Contemporary Romance! If I could, I’d hug each and every one of you. And I’d get Stefan to help because he likes hugging. A lot. ;-)
From the both of us, and the entire Wicked Flower family of characters, we thank you. We thank you, we thank you, we thank you. This means the world. You have made this night spectacular, extraordinary, one of a kind, unforgettable. Mwah!
