#FunFriday Sexy or not? You pick the teaser!

I’ve always been partial to stories that have a little sexiness because I not only like seeing how the emotional relationship develops in a romance, but where it leads. I also like romances where the hero and heroine are equals in the relationship, supporting and helping each other through tough times. That’s the vibe I was striving for in ONE SUMMER NIGHT. A blend of partnership, sexiness, playfulness and tenderness. So how do I get that point across? Take a look at these teasers and let me know which one you prefer. The top one or the bottom or both? Which one grabs you?

#FunFriday & #Giveaway – Running of the Bull . . . Dogs that Is!

It’s that time of year for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. You’ve probably seen news stories about people being gored or injured as they try to outrun the large bulls on narrow Spanish streets. The practice began when cattle had to be transported from one location to another and local youths would run and dodge in front of them to show how brave they were.

But now, there is another fearful animal to dodge: the bulldogs. This commercial from Geico is hysterical! Click here if you cannot see the Geico Running of the Bulldogs commercial below.

Weekend Movies? Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or Wonder Woman? #FridayFun

I have been so chained to my desk with both my day job and writing, that I haven’t had a chance to see two movies that were both on my “have to watch” list: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Wonder Woman.

I’d love to hear from you if you’ve seen either of the movies and if so, what you thought of them! Maybe let me know which one you’d go see first if you’ve already seen both.

Also, don’t forget I’ve got a month long contest going! You can enter multiple times daily until June 30. Just click here of visit this link:

National Donut Day #FunFriday

Ah, the donut! I love donuts. From Krispy Kremes to Dunkin’ Donuts to Winchell’s out in California, donuts rock.

If you’re like me, today is the day to get some free donuts on National Donut Day. You can find out how to get yours at one of these links:

Now that we got that out of the way, who invented the donut? According to Wikipedia, there is some dispute as to the origins of the donut, but many of those origins are tied to the USA so I’m going with some American somewhere invented the donut. Of course, the French might say the beignet got it all started and yes, they are tasty fried nuggets of dough, but I’m feeling all patriotic lately, so we’ll stick with Americans inventing the donut.

What about the origins of Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins? Try as I might, I could not find any common explanation on the invention of the “donut hole.” According to, the holes were named after the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz since DD thought kids would go for the smaller snacks. You can find more donut trivia from here:

Hope you enjoyed today’s Fun Friday! Have a great weekend!
