On the Tenth Day of Christmas #giveaway #guestblog

HER VAMPIRE LOVER erotic paranormal romance novellaOn the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, ten lords a leaping!

Interesting thing, Lords. I have to confess to being fascinated by royalty. I guess I passed that on to my daughter, hence her love of all things British.

I’ve had royalty in a number of books and have had fun with them. I’ve also read a number of books with royalty in them. In fact, I’m taking a break for a day or so and finishing up The Royals of Cordina series by Nora Roberts. I’m on my last one, The Playboy Prince, and absolutely loving Bennett.

One of my latest erotic novellas, HER VAMPIRE LOVER, has Count Gregori who is fascinating and a hero in so many ways. So for today, I’m offering up a copy of HER VAMPIRE LOVER to one reader who leaves a comment on my guest blog with the lovely and talented Cathy Perkins!

Have a great weekend! Remember that you can go back and follow the instructions for each day of the giveaway up until Midnight EST on January 6th.

On the third day of Christmas #Giveaway Faith Hope & Charity

While researching this Christmas Carol, I came across an interesting background for the carol, namely, that it was written as a catechism lesson when Christians were being persecuted for their faith.

THE PRINCE'S GAMBLESo what do three French hens represent? Faith, hope and charity and as some of you may know, Caridad means Charity in English.

That means today’s 12 Days of Christmas giveaway is a choice of one of my backlist books. Just check out the booklist and leave a comment with the name of the book you would like to win for a chance to win that book!

#ManCandyMonday Prince Alexander Ivanov

You may be wondering what I had in mind when I thought up Prince Alexander from THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE.

Exotic would be a good word to describe him off the bat. FBI Agent Kathleen Martinez certainly thought so at her first meeting with the prince.

Despite his tone and attitude, it was hard for Kathleen to ignore that he was an incredibly handsome man. The pictures and clippings in her file had not done him justice.

Ivanov stood at least six foot two with broad shoulders that strained the expensive fabric of his designer suit. His well-muscled upper body flowed into lean hips and powerful legs.

She dragged her attention back to his face. The muscles in his chiseled jaw clenched with annoyance. It was hard to tell if he had full lips from the angry slash of his mouth. High cheekbones served to highlight winter blue eyes with an exotic tilt. Or maybe his eyes only seemed clear as the sky due to the midnight hair ruthlessly styled into place.

Two gorgeous men in one day, and just her luck they were both connected to her investigation. But while Detective Roman still possessed a hint of boyishness in his features, Alexander was a man with a capital M. Her flare of attraction to him was disturbing on several levels.

LOL, definitely a MAN with all caps. But the things that I found most intriguing about Alexander were the many layers to his personality. Alexander is a man shaped by hardship and yet privileged as few can be. That really brought a number of different traits to him that I found fascinating and that Kathleen did as well.

I hope you’ll enjoy finding out more about Alexander in THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE.

Now to leave you with a little of my inspiration for the prince!

THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE #Sandy Campaign for the #Jersey #Shore

My friends know better than to double dog dare me! Nearly three years ago I took a trip to Las Vegas to do a writing weekend with friends. I was in between projects and wanting to work on a new romantic suspense, I just needed an idea for it.

The time with my friends was wonderful. We talked books, ate books, lived and breathed and dreamed books. Always a great time, but especially with these dear friends. Of course, we did squeeze in time to take in the sights of Las Vegas, have a nice dinner, see a show and spend a relaxing day at the spa.

As we went from place to place, ideas started taking hold in my brain, but they didn’t gel until my friends double-dog dared me when I said that I could take all our experiences and work them into a book.

THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE was the result of that dare, but being a Jersey girl, I knew I had to set the prince’s casino in Atlantic City. Of course, then Hurricane Sandy came along, causing so much damage to not only Atlantic City, but my beloved Jersey Shore.

I’ve shared some images of that damage on my Facebook fan page.

I’ve always been a person who believed that if you weren’t part of the solution, you were part of the problem. Because I don’t want to be part of the problem, I decided that I was going to be part of the solution by helping out to restore the shore that I love so much.

In order to do that, I’m going to be donating my share of the proceeds from sales of THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE from now until March 1, 2013 to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE is now available for sale at Amazon and should be available for sale shortly at B&N.
