Naughty Thought for Monday

I wrote 'An Invitation to The World: New Zealand' [an erotic romance with two rugby players and the women they both love] a few years ago. At the time of its release, I posted a great version of the Haka, a dance the All Blacks [New Zealand's National Rugby team] do before every match to intimidate their opponents.

Well, here's a new tradition: nude touch beach rugby before the tri nations test match tournament begins.

Don't you just love visuals!

Hot Couture has three stories in it about women who have a passion for fashion and the men who love them. I'm a rather visual person and like mini book trailers. So, I put the two together and came up with three, that's right, in this case one plus one equals three. Here are the mini book trailers that celebrate:

The Leather Bride

Taming Marie Antoinette

The Gilded Cage

The Leather Bride, Taming Marie Antoinette and The Gilded Cage are available separately or together as Hot Couture from Phaze, Amazon, Barnes & Noble or your local bookstore.

eBook Talk!

I made some progress on my TBR pile [2 Laurell K Hamilton's, a Janet Evanovich and Linda Fairstein, and in the midst of a JD Robb], but the one that's still the freshest in my mind this morning is "Tartan Surprise" by Selena Illyria. A short satisfying read, exactly what I needed this past weekend.

"Tartan Surprise" is a shape-shifter tale with plenty of smoldering tension. Something Illyria does very well is dialogue, it fits.

One son of the pack leader is about to get married, the other is looking for someone to take the edge off before the full moon, fortunately dad has it all figured out. The timing couldn't be better for his assistant to arrive and cause havoc.

Like I said after I read Fling in Vampiropolis, Selena Illyria is one spectacular author who has more books on the cusp of coming out - good!

You know what passion means, right?

Well, if you head over to the Wild on Books Blog you'll see one of my takes on the sultry word. Comment and you're in the drawing for a special contest :-)
