Thank yous!

It's been a crazy September what with putting a book out while being heavily pregnant. So before I actually burst - really truly actually burst - I wanted to say a big THANKS to all of you who have supported me in this time. Whether you bought Love Lost and Found, told someone else to buy it, or just cheered me on -
And just as importantly, it takes a whole bunch of people to make a book. So a big thanks to the fabulous editors (Alethea, Rima Jean and, Laura Anne) publicity team (Misa and kiwi girl Emma), critique partners (Bronwyn, Carmen, Tania and Trudi), support partners (lovely James), twitter cheerleaders (sci-five Evie B) and general ace friends that I have in my life. To the other September release ladies (Marisa, Hayson and Sofia), way to go! Now all I have to do is enjoy the ride of having another book out in the world, and have this baby! But in the mean time, don't forget that I'm all over the net answering questions, and unless I'm actually in labor - I'll be stopping by to chat on all these blogs.

And if you've missed it - Love Lost and Found is ready and waiting to bring you a good dose of seriously happy ever after ;-) on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel and iBooks!

x Happy Reading

Fab Four - Final Guest

And finally - the last (but definately not least, because - cowboys!) of the Fab Four Indulgence Release laaadies. The lovely Marisa Cleveland stops by with her new title Reforming the Cowboy. Take it away Marisa!
1. Four words to describe Reforming the Cowboy: Sex, skepticism, sincerity, and strength
2. Four Favorite Indulgences: Cuddling with hubby, sipping champagne, nibbling on strawberries, and reading a romance novel.
3. Four women/characters my hero, BILLY, would never date: Cruella de Vil, Catwoman, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Mystique from the X-Men
4. Four pick up lines my heroine, LACEY, would never go for:
                Do you have a band aid? I scraped my knee falling for you.
                Damn, if being sexy was a crime, you'd be guilty as charged!
                There is something wrong with my cell phone. It doesn't have your number in it.
                You must be a hell of thief, because you stole my heart from across the room.

Country singer Billy Hardy needs to get back on the charts. His manager assures him headlining the opening of a cafe in South Beach is his best chance at getting back to the big time. If he fails, his career is over for good this time.

Lacey Durant can't believe opening night includes the country singer she crushed on through college. And her customers agree he's dreamy. But his playboy reputation threatens her cafe's image and she can't afford that. She insists Billy stay with her so she can keep an eye on him, and thwart overenthusiastic fans.

Billy's charms and Lacey's sexy curves prove more than either can resist, but she refuses to be just another lyric in his well-known songs of heartbreak.

About Marisa:
Marisa loves to laugh, hates to cry, and does both often. She married her best friend, and her adult romance novels focus on sensual relationships developed through friendship. She loves to connect with readers.
Connect with Marisa through her Website, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, Goodreads and YouTube. Wowsers! That's a lot of connecting :-)
You can Buy Reforming the Cowboy on Amazon Barnes and Noble, and 

Thanks to Sofia Harper and Hayson Manning for coming on over this month. You can grab their Indulgence release titles now - and of course Love Lost and Found is ready and waiting to Pleasure your Shelf! :-)  Happy Reading!

Next Fab Four - Guest Hayson Manning

If you're looking for the Fall into Romance Blog Hop - look just a little down the page - clues and info are in the previous post - and there's more on my website too. 

But next up in the September Release Fab Four ladies from Indulgence is Hayson Manning with Winning the Boss's Heart. Hayson  writes fun and flirty romances with alpha dudes and sassy woman. She lives in Sydney with her lovely sloth children, infuriating but much loved shoe-dropping husband, a tubby opinionated cat (as if a cat doesn't ever have an opinion). There will often be a foster dog parked on the couch waiting for their forever home. She loves a good glass of wine, dreams of winning the lottery, cries while watching Antiques Roadshow and is cannot speak she's sobbing so much by the end of Undercover Boss. She is also an expert at finding new and inventive ways to avoid exercise. Take it away Hayson!

Please describe your book in four words.
Heathcliff meets his un-Cathy.

Your four favorite indulgences
Wine. Turkish Delight chocolate. Serums that promise I’ll look eighteen again. Deadliest Catch.

Name the four women/characters your hero would never date
Mason isn’t a big dater, but he’d never date a chatter. He’d only date women who don’t want a commitment. He’d never date a woman who wears her heart on her sleeve. He’d prefer to date a woman who’d go for a formal restaurant dinner over a picnic lunch in the sun playing ‘name that cloud.’

Pick the four pickup lines your heroine would never go for.
Do you want your eggs over easy or fertilized. (Doesn’t that make you shudder?)
It’s your lucky day. Out of all the girls here I chose you to talk to.
I have a body part that is eleven inches long. Wanna see?
Good news, the test results are negative! 

Winning the Boss’s Heart
Mason Christian has twelve weeks to flip something old into something new, and then he's getting the hell out of Footsteps Bay - a tiny New Zealand coastal town. Not even his temporary secretary and personal assistant--the feisty, luscious Billie McLeod--will deter him, but there's no denying she makes him feel alive. More alive than he's felt in three years...
Billie has one dream: save enough money to finish her degree. That's why she's agreed to work for hard ass, all-business-no-pleasure Mason Christian--a man who has every intention of destroying through modernization the town's most cherished historical home. Before she can say 'see ya' she's signed on the dotted line and is contractually bound to be Mason's forty-second assistant. But working with male perfection every day is awesome with a capital A--as long as they can stick to a hands-off policy that gets harder every day...

You can get hold of Hayson through her Website, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads.

Last up will be the lovely Marisa Cleveland with her new title

Reforming the Cowboy (oooo, cowboys :-) )

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
