The Key to Survival? It’s in the Bag
By Avery Flynn
If your purse/handbag/pocketbook is anything like mine it is a black hole of crumpled receipts, mysteriously sticky Hot Wheels cars, pens without ink and change. I try to clean it out every few months, but have to admit I usually try to skip it because I’m a big chicken.
I know, I know. I write about the fashion industry and yet my own purse is a total mess. That’s why I sat down with the High-Heeled Wonder herself, Sylvie Bissett (shhh, come on play along with the crazy writer girl) to find out what every woman should have in her purse. Here’s what the hottest fashion blogger in Harbor City had to say.
1. Lipstick. Three shades. You never know when the mood to change will strike you. Plus, if you’re a slacker about cleaning out your bag *ahem Flynnie* you will always have the perfect shade on hand.
2. Mints. Nothing may taste as good as General Tsos from The Darling House, but it is killer on your breath—making it all the more awkward when you’re trying to get a lip lock on the hot private investigator posing as your boyfriend so you two can track down a stalker. Hey, it could happen to you.
3. Mad Money. You never know when you’ll find the perfect sparkly accessory or need to give the waitress an extra tip to ignore the fact that you spent most of your lunch making out—or thinking about making out—with your pretend boyfriend.
4. Smartphone. Perfect to read all your favorite fashion blogs other than High-Heeled Wonder (may I recommend Tom and Lorenzo or Go Fug Yourself?) or to call the cops when a demented human trafficker/fashion designer is holding you at gunpoint.
5. Ballet Flats. I’m taking a chance even telling you that I own flats, but when a woman is running for her life, heels aren’t always the best option. Go with something in a bright color that will add a perfect pop of flash to any outfit. Plus the soft kind will fold flat at the bottom of your bag.
Well there you have it. The key to survival is in the bag.

Tony Falcon, an investigator from the other side of the tracks, is the olive oil to fashion blogger Sylvie Bissette’s Evian water, but it’s not just her temper he’s inciting. When Sylvie’s stalker almost runs her over in broad daylight, Tony must pose as her boyfriend to infiltrate the close-knit fashion community. In a world full of overblown egos and cutthroat ambition, Sylvie and Tony must work together to find her stalker before she ends up with a literal knife in the back.

I’m so excited for today’s Monday Cute Meet guest! The first book I read by Stacey Espino was a very special and touching yet also incredibly sexy title called Cowboy Outcasts. (Which you can find here.) Now she’s here today with her newest release, Cowboys Mine, and from the blurb alone, I can’t wait to read it. If you like sexy hardcore cowboys and a story packed with emotion and heart, I think you’ll love Stacey’s books. Here’s a bit more about the twin brothers and Eva the girl they love, in Cowboys Mine…
Eva Ford lives a sheltered life on her small rural farm. At twenty-two, she feels the need to spread her wings and start her own life, planning a trip to the city to show her prized cows. Colton and North McReed from the next ranch over are determined to make sure she stays out of trouble.
Twin brothers, Colton and North, have always loved little Eva. She’s their rock in life, the one pure thing in their otherwise dark existence. Their abusive father ran out on the family years ago and their mother suffers from a serious addiction. They never look at Eva with desire…until they spend a week alone with her in the city.
Everything changes when Eva and the cowboys realize just how deep their love for each other runs. Once their passion is unleashed, it’s impossible to contain. But can their unorthodox relationship last? Will sex ruin the friendship of a lifetime?
And now a sneak peek…
Happy Monday everyone and welcome to Monday Cute Meet! I’ve really enjoyed bringing this segment to you each week and appreciate your support of the wonderful guest authors and their books. In a romance novel, the “cute meet” is the first significant contact the hero and heroine have that sets them on their romantic journey and it’s one of my favorite story parts. Let’s see what today’s guest, erotic paranormal romance author, Bethany-Kris, has to share from the first book in her Clans of Fire series, A Love Unfinished , and how her characters met.
Thanks so much to Carlene today for letting me come over onto her blog and talk about my latest release, A Love Unfinished. Hugs and love to her.
My hero and heroine have known each other for a few years now. However, it was only recently that Holden disappeared with no word and no explanation to explain away his sudden departure. Heartbroken, Dani runs to New York, but she holds onto the memories of them, despite her anger. One of her very favorite memories, is when they first met.
When Holden was eighteen, he decided to leave Montana to search out something that felt like home to him. Growing up in foster care and being moved around a lot never gave him a sense of peace. Interestingly enough, he felt drawn to Tennessee, so that’s where he went. After arriving in the state, he followed an ad in a paper for a ranch that needed extra hands and there he saw Dani for the first time.
Only seventeen years old, dirty from having been working with the horses all day, he was thunderstruck. She was the first thing to ever make him feel settled. He loved her instantly. They were together, and near inseparable, up until his unexplainable disappearance.
But don’t worry…he’ll be back.
Love that, Bethany! Very intriguing and I love it when the characters have some history together like Dani and Holden.
Happy 2014 and welcome to the weekly segment, Monday Cute Meet. I’ve really enjoyed bringing this segment to you and appreciate your support of the wonderful guest authors and their books. In a romance novel, the “cute meet” is the first significant contact the hero and heroine have that sets them on their romantic journey and it’s one of my favorite story parts. Let’s see what today’s guest, contemporary romance author, Eileen Griffin, has to share from her latest, Dinner for Two, and her characters’ first meeting.
A big thank you to Carlene for hosting me on her blog today. I think my love of all things Italian had a major influence on my decision to make Tony, the male MC and head chef Italian and make the setting an Italian restaurant when I first began writing Dinner For Two. Tony Mancinni is the head chef of an Italian restaurant Sonia Davenport visits when she’s looking for the perfect place for her boss’ company dinner party. Tony rolls out the red carpet treatment for Sonia during their catering meetings for the upcoming party and Sonia quickly discovers that the restaurant is not the only thing she’s found that is perfect. I’m a firm believer that good food can make an evening enjoyable, and Tony and Sonia are brought together through their combined efforts to make a dish they create extra special in order to save the evening from disaster when a catering error threatens the entire dinner party.
You’re very welcome, Eileen. I’m happy to have you!
