Mid Week Tease! Thank the author goddess for Romance! #MWTease

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!


Hello friends and Happy Almost Thanksgiving! Sandra Bunino, I am so very thankful for you, my friend. Thanks for being one of the most giving, talented, truly good people I know, and for making it possible to hang out with so many other talented, lovely ladies in the tease. I’m blessed to know you all.

In the spirit of being thankful, I’d like to share a snippet from the very first romance novel I ever read. Not only did this book suck me in for life as far as the romance genre goes, but it also inspired me to become a writer. That book was Seize the Night by author goddess, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and it is my honor to share this bit between the tragic hero, Valerius, and his kick-butt heroine, Tabitha. Their story, with the sexy, witty, vulnerable words, stole my heart from page one and to this day, has never let go. Thank you to Sherrilyn, for writing such a beautiful, inspiring book.

Happy Friday, Friends!

I’m swimming with my Waterworld Mermaid fishy sisters today and telling the tale of how Sherrilyn Kenyon, author of the Dark-Hunter paranormal romance series, literally led me to becoming a writer!  To celebrate, I’m giving away a wrapped, 5-book set of her Dark-Hunter novels that I won in a raffle basket she donated to my local writing group.  It’s a fun story and a fabulous giveaway, what better way to spend a Friday!  Swim on over, I’d love to see you there!
