Changing up Man Candy Monday this morning! How about a homage to those posterior portions that sometimes snag our attention? Check out this sampling of some very fine men showing off their assets.

#ManCandyMonday Suit or Surfer? You decide!

So what’s sexier? A man in a suit (or getting out of it) or a sexy surfer dude? That’s the choice I had when writing the Pierce brothers, Owen and Jonathan, for the At the Shore Contemporary Romance Series.

Owen is Mr. Suit, all buttoned up and responsible until he does the unthinkable and falls in love with the daughter of his father’s bitter enemy in ONE SUMMER NIGHT.

Jonathan, Mr. Surfer Dude, is the rebel who is always in search of something new and different until he meets a woman who has planned every aspect of her life – except him of course. Look for his story and Connie’s in WHAT HAPPENS IN SUMMER.

So what’s sexier? Or are the Pierce brothers both sexy men?

FYI – My publisher has dropped the price of ONE SUMMER NIGHT to .99 cents for a limited time! If you haven’t already picked up your e-book, you can do so at the following retailers:

#ManCandyMonday Owen Pierce from One Summer Night

I loved Owen from ONE SUMMER NIGHT from the moment he popped into my head. I knew he would be responsible, loyal, sexy and honest (although the last one was hard since I knew he was going to walk a fine line in order to have a relationship with Maggie.)

When I pictured Owen, he was always in a fabulous bespoke suit which fit his profession as a real estate tycoon. Even in casual clothes Owen was very buttoned up, but watch out ladies when it’s time for him to let go!

So what’s better than Owen in one of his sexy power suits? How about Owen out of one?

You can purchase ONE SUMMER NIGHT and find out more about Owen and the fine line he walks to woo Maggie at these retailers:

#MotivationMonday Meets #ManCandy

I am just back from the Fall in Love with New England Conference and I had a blast. I’ll share some photos later in the week!

Today I have with me my friend LG O’Connor who is providing an excellent mix of Motivation meeting Man Candy. How did I get to that? Well, lots of us need motivation to get cooking and what better way to inspire us than Man Candy in the kitchen? LOL!

So here is some info on my friend’s latest project: A recipe book by the hero of her novel, Caught up in RAINE!

Please welcome LG O’Connor and Raine!

Recipes from Raine’s Roost
“One Guy’s Guide to Saving the Day with Food”

I’m super excited to announce the release of the Recipes from Raine’s Roost color cookbook on October 24th! This book is based on Raine’s guest run on USA TODAY’s Happy Ever After blog.
Super Cool Offer!

I released the Kindle version of Recipes from Raine’s Roost TODAY (October 16th) for a pre-launch price of $0.99 cents now through the October 24th launch date just for this offer. (Regular Retail price $2.99).

That’s it! One of my friends is buying 10 of them to use as gifts for the Holidays! Makes an especially nice gift for that special someone who tends to set off the fire alarm when anywhere near a kitchen…
ORDER NOW: https://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Raines-Jillians-Kitchen-Caught-ebook/dp/B0764LQQQC/ 

Book Description:
For the record, this cookbook was Jillian’s idea. So was the hashtag, #hotguycooks. She thought I should share my mad cooking skills with the world. Well, maybe not the whole world, but people like me who have partners with an aversion to kitchens. We can’t let them starve, can we?

For those of you who don’t know me, when I first met Jillian all she had in her fridge was a jug of water, a jar of mustard and a half loaf of bread. Her freezer was empty except for an old bag of ice. I thought, “Damn, what does this woman eat?” Now I’m the only thing standing between real food and Jillian living on a steady diet of yogurt, cold cereal, and chocolate.

This isn’t your ordinary cookbook. It’s more like a medley of favorite recipes, some seasonal, all done Raine-style. Check ’em out. I skew toward organic when it comes to ingredients, and where I can, I substitute a healthy option. #sorrynotsorry. Most of my recipes come with tips, advice, and a small slice of my life with Jillian. The goal: to make you look like a culinary rock star to your significant other. So, come on, step inside the Roost. Poke around and see what’s cooking. Pull up a chair and hang out. The kitchen’s open.

#ManCandyMonday Tyler Hoechlin is my choice for Owen Pierce!

OMG! Just 8 days to go until the release of ONE SUMMER NIGHT so we have to get to the really important stuff, like who to cast for the movie! The hero in the story, Owen Pierce, is dark-haired and has charcoal grey eyes shot through with silver. He is drop dead handsome and dresses like someone off the pages of GQ in bespoke suits since he is a real estate tycoon.

After giving it a lot of thought and doing thorough research – a tough job but someone has to do it — my choice to play Owen Pierce in a movie version of ONE SUMMER NIGHT is Tyler Hoechlin! So what do you think?

You can buy ONE SUMMER NIGHT at these retailers:

#ManCandyMonday Danny Pino & Carlo from At the Shore

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month so I’m going to tempt you all month long with some sexy Latin men! Today’s choice is a familiar face for fans of COLD CASE, LAW AND ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, or THE SHIELD. Danny was born in Miami, but is of Cuban descent and has appeared in a number of television shows and movies as well as motion pictures. He has been nominated for numerous ALMA and IMAGEN awards and has taken home two IMAGEN awards for his work on COLD CASE and LAW AND ORDER. You can visit Danny on Instagram and Twitter.

I actually think Danny would be a good choice for Carlo in #3 in the At the Shore Series. You get to meet Carlo in ONE SUMMER NIGHT, but his bigger role starts in #2 and he is the hero of #3.
