Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop

I can’t resist joining in a St. Patrick’s Day blog hop! I guess that’s the Irish in me. I even have proof, lol. My DNA results came back. So I’m some Irish! (Not to mention a whole lot of others, lol)

I’m curious if anyone else has had it done. Let me know! Did you find any surprises? I had none. NONE. I’m as white as white on rice. A minuscule bit of Asian (less than 1%) and Native American (again less than 1%). More Scandinavian than expected. The Western Europe, not a surprise at all!

I know, not the normal questions for a romance book blog, lol. But it ties in with a story I’ve been slowly researching. It’ll be a few years before I finish it as I’m only researching at the moment. The movement of my ancestors does breath a little more life into it though!

So for my blog treat I’m giving away a $5.00 gift card to your choice of Amazon, Kobo, B&N or Apple.

Just click the rafflecopter link for your options! Visit me on Facebook, follow me on twitter, share a message on twitter and/or leave a blog comment telling me if you’ve done a DNA test and if the results were what you expected (make sure you click that option after leaving a comment!)

Secret Cravings Publishing 4th Anniversary Blog Hop


SC anniversary blog hopThis is Secret Cravings Publishing’s 4th Anniversary! Wow! I have the honor of saying I have been with SCP since 2012.

I have just launched my 5th book with SCP and it’s the first in a Five book series! I am so excited about his series!

Most of you know my previous books with SCP have been cowboy romance, in one form or another. Well hold on to your lassos, because something new is coming your way!

The Animal in Me Series. An Erotic Paranormal series, featuring shifters or the Bear and wolf variety.

Book 1 Hers to Bear released January 7, 2015 and I can’t wait for you to read it!

Hers to Bear

Twenty-five and never been kissed, Jenna Raynes is a beautiful woman with a rubenesque figure often overlooked by men. In the mood for a little honey, the sassy new schoolteacher is stopped in her tracks by one growled word from an alpha bear…“Mine.”
Bern Helms’ inner bear catches the scent of his destined mate. His animal’s desire is drawn to her curves, but Jenna is human, and not lured to him by instinct. Convincing her begins as a sizzling, sweet affair that is soon spoiled by danger. In their small backwater town, nerves are strung taut. Someone is abducting shifter children.
When confronted, Jenna is as protective of her students as a mamma bear. For Bern, all bets are off when the kidnapper’s take Jenna too. Nothing will keep a bear from his mate. The hunters will become the hunted…

Would you like to read a hot little snippet?

Jenna’s beautiful blue eyes gazed up at him swimming with unshed tears. He reached down and pulled her onto his lap, kissing her eyelids, temples, cheeks, and then down to the corners of her mouth. He teased and coaxed at her lips until they opened for him like a flower to the sun and dipped inside to taste her honey sweetness. God, she was exquisite.
One hand held tight to the braid in her hair while the other roamed her back, pulling her ever closer as his mouth plundered the depths of hers. He could feel her nipples peak against his chest and smell the scent of her desire.
A small moan escaped her lips and Jenna tugged his shirt loose from the waist of his pants so she could slip her soft hands underneath. Bern could not stop the growl from his bear at the feel of her running her hands over his chest.
He reached behind and pulled his shirt off with one hand, giving her free access to his upper body. Jenna purred in appreciation at the revelation and Bern preened with pride. Jenna kissed down the side of his neck to his chest and swirled her tongue around one of his nipples. The flat brown disc stood up in notice, and an electric jolt shot straight to Bern’s cock.
Bern kissed Jenna’s neck, the delicate spot just behind her ear made her shiver. He continued down, pushing the collar of her peasant blouse off her shoulder and baring her lacey bra. The swell of her breast above the cup received the same treatment, and then he used his teeth to lower the cup and expose her beautiful flesh.
He licked the strawberry nipple and then drew it into his mouth and sucked. Jenna bucked so hard she almost fell off his lap. “Oh my God. That feels so good,” she murmured.
“Maybe we should move somewhere more comfortable?” Bern said pulling back to look deeply into her eyes.
Jenna stared at him for a long moment, finally she nodded. “Yes, let’s go to my bedroom.”
Bern was surprised. He had been thinking of the couch in the living room. He didn’t think Jenna was ready for a full mating, but his little mate was constantly surprising him. “Are you sure, little one?”
“I’m sure. Just…remember I’ve never done this before.” She licked her lips.
“Oh, my sweet Jenna, that’s something I would never forget. I am so honored to be your first. I promise I will make it good for you.” He leaned in and gave her a kiss full of all the passion and love that was filling his heart.
Bern stood with her in his arms, never breaking the kiss and carried her to the bedroom. He kicked the bedroom door closed with his foot and didn’t bother to turn on any lights. It wasn’t fully dark outside yet. So, the room was lit by the twilight.
Jenna’s bedroom was like her, bright and colorful. Feminine and sweet. A queen size bed sat against the far wall covered in a quilt of greens and blues, cherry night stands sat on either side of the bed. Two bookcases overflowing with romance novels took up one wall and a small dressing table with a blue stool graced the side of the room. Throw pillows of every color of the rainbow adorned the top of the bed.
Bern allowed Jenna to slowly slide down his body until her feet touched the floor. He pulled the tie from her braid and ran his fingers through her hair, spilling the thick tresses over her shoulders and then he proceeded to gently peel off her clothing one item at a time. He wanted to worship his mate. He removed her blouse and bra, caressing her shoulders and neck, kissing and touching, trying to keep her nerves from overrunning her desire.
He dropped to his knees and removed her shoes. Her cute little toes were painted pink and he had to kiss each one. He slid his hands up her calves and over her thick thighs, he had to stop there to squeeze, oh God, those thighs, what they did to him, and then her luscious ass. He couldn’t wait to see that ass. His hands slipped around to the front and he undid the button on her trousers, sliding down the zipper, he pushed her slacks and underwear to her ankles.
Bern leaned in and kissed her stomach and Jenna trembled. He rested his head against her middle and just held her close for a moment. She sifted her finger through his hair and sighed. Bern looked up and smiled at her. “Step out of these for me, little one.”
Jenna complied stepping out of her garments and taking a step back at the same time, this caused Bern’s hands to slip from her waist to her ass and he left them there, crawling forward on his knees he nuzzled at her mound and Jenna gasped.
“Open for me, baby,” he said and he moved his hands to the back of her thighs and applied pressure to spread her legs apart.
Jenna widened her stance and Bern kissed the curls at the juncture of her thighs. He darted his tongue out and swiped it across her opening. Damn, she tastes good. He took a long lick from the bottom of her slit to the top and then swirled his tongue around her clit and Jenna shuddered.
“Oh my God, Bern.”
“Feel good, baby?”
“Mm, yeah. Do that again.”
Bern chuckled. He used a finger to tease her slit, back and forth, back and forth and slowly dipped it inside. All the while licking and sucking her clit. Jenna was moaning now, thrusting her hips in time to the movement of his finger. He added a second finger and her moans turned to chanting his name. Her cream was coating his hand and his tongue. His dick was so hard, he was about to cum in his pants like a randy teenager. She tasted like heaven, like nothing and no one else in the world. His mate. His life.
She was panting now. Calling his name. He added a third finger and bit down on her clit. She came screaming his name. His arm around her waist was the only thing that kept her upright. Bern slowly brought her down from her climax. Making sure she got every moment of pleasure possible and then he lowered her to the bed and lay down beside her. Cupping her face and kissing her deeply, his hands thrust into her hair, holding her head in place for his kiss.
When he pulled back she looked at him with passion glazed eyes. “You are beautiful when you come, little one,” he said.
Jenna blushed all the way to her pretty pink nipples. “Thank you, I think. But, what about you? You didn’t come.”
“We’re not finished my pet. We’ve only barely started.”
“Oh.” Jenna laughed and turned to snuggle into his side. “Then I guess it’s my turn to play,” she said as she began to run her hand up and down Bern’s chest.

Stuff Your Kindle Blog Hop

stuff your kindlestockings1

So your stockings were stuffed, your tummies are stuffed,

hopefully your hearts are also stuffed with joy!

What should your Kindle (or Nook) be stuffed with?

I could be a greedy Grinch and list all my books and just ell you to please, please buy my books! (insert pitiful face here)

But, truly that’s not my style. Instead I’m going to share with you

my top 20 books of 2014- in no particular order.

1- Code Name:Luminous- Natasza Waters – Amazon Code Name:Luminous is an edge of your seat thriller that starts at page one and doesn’t stop the ride until the last page is turned. Danger and intrigue abound, but beyond that, CNL is a highly emotional journey in the lives of the SEAL’s we have grown to love in the the Warrior’s Challenge series. The books can be read as stand alone books, but the emotional impact is stronger if you have grown to love the characters throughout the series.

2-Raleigh Point Rescue- Sue Kellett- Amazon This is VIctoria Sue’s debut novel and she knocked it out of the park!
I love a damaged hero or heroine and Lisa couldn’t be more damaged.The suspense was great and I was shocked at the twists and turns this author wove into the plot. I usually always know who the bad-guy is, and I didn’t have a clue!
Great job, Victoria Sue! I look forward to the next Raleigh Point book!

3- O Captain, My Captain- V.L. Locey- Amazon This is the first book I’ve read by V.L. Locey but it definitely won’t be the last! I absolutely loved this book. I got to the end and kept hitting the side of the kindle to turn the page… no! It can’t be over!

4-Outfoxed by Love -Eve Langlais – Amazon Another hit! I loved Jan and Boris in the first book, but they really came alive in Outfoxed and Jan’s parents were an absolute hoot! Living in the south I know a few people just like them! lol
Great story, lots of suspense, laughter and of course, if you know Eve, hot, hot , hot!

5- Her Forever Cowboy -Donna Michaels – Amazon I loved seeing these two guarded souls open their hearts to each other.
A wonderful combination of hot and sweet, this romance tugged my heart strings in all the right places!

6- Exquisite Trouble – Ann Mayburn- Amazon Wow, wow, wow! What a hot start to a new series for Ann Mayburn. I love Ann and Exquisite Trouble rocked my world. A look deeply into the MC lifestyle, rife with danger, excitement and mystery. Hot motorcycle riding heroes and their odd group of “old ladies.”

7- The Beta Gets his Man – Amanda Clark – Amazon

8- The Astral Mage – Hurri Cosmo- Amazon Action, suspense, mystery, exotic locations and hot M/M loving.
A really enjoyable read.

9- Freakin’ Cougar- Eve Langlais – Amazon In my opinion Lydia Michaels is virtuoso of prose, addressing sensitive subjects with intelligence, emotion and empathy. Kudos Lydia, on another shining gem in your tiara!

10- Forsaking Truth – Lydia Michaels – Amazon In my opinion Lydia Michaels is virtuoso of prose, addressing sensitive subjects with intelligence, emotion and empathy. Kudos Lydia, on another shining gem in your tiara!

11- Lest Old Marine’s Be Forgot – Heather Long – Amazon Lest Old Marine’s Be Forgot will not only tug at your heartstrings it will pull them until they unravel!

12- Bite Me- Shelly Laurenston – Amazon Bite Me has a great combination of action, adventure, humor, and hot hot hybrid loving!

13- Faking It – Lydia Michaels – Amazon If you like stories with heart, hope, love, family and hot hot loving the McCollough Mountain series is a don’t miss read.

14- Big Furry Deal – Celia Kyle – Amazon Two damaged people who find healing in each other. I loved how sweet and protective Wyatt was, but how he knew when he needed to be strong for his Bethy.

15- Feral Heat- Jennifer Ashley – Amazon

16- Bear Naked – Dana Marie Belle – Amazon Wonderful as usual, whens the next one?

17- Alpha’s Strength – Rebbeca Royce – Amazon Alpha’s Strength had more twists and turns than a bad piece of country road. Action, suspense, mystery, and lots of hot, hot loving!

18 – Hard as You Can- Laura Kaye – Amazon Hard as You Can is an emotional roller coaster and brought me to tears more then once. I won’t give spoilers, but stock up on the tissues.

19 – Bait – Tiffanie Helmer – Amazon Bait was a great read. Emotional, heartwarming and very fast paced

20 – A Saint’s Salvation – Beverly Ovalle – Amazon  Nick and Angel’s journey was amazing to watch. Their courage and faith is inspiring, the sassy banter is entertaining, and the love scenes are HOT!

Now, you have some ideas of WHAT to stuff in your Kindle, Here’s a tip on HOW to stuff your Kindle!

kindle fire  For every ten comments I get on this blog post I will give away one of the books on this list! The more comments the more books I’ll give away! Give me YOUR recommendations from 2014. What book did you read and love? Don’t forget to leave your e-mail so I can contact you!

Now, you don’t think I could let you get away without any promotion at all do you?

I have a new book coming out in January, The start of a new series and I am so excited! I hope you will all buy it when it releases! (see here is the shameless begging!) Check it out!

Hers to Bear
Jenna Raynes has been overlooked by men all her life. A big, beautiful, woman, she was always the friend, never the lover. At twenty-five she has never even been kissed. All that changes in a heartbeat with one word from an alpha bear… “Mine.”
Sippe Leiter, Bern Helms got more than he bargained for when he stepped into Andy’s market for a jar of honey. He found his mate! Now if he can only keep her.
HUNTS, Humans United Negation Team for Shifters is targeting children from all the shifter groups. When Bern’s mate gets caught in the backlash and kidnapped along with his niece, all bets are off. Nothing will keep a bear from his mate. The hunters are about to become the hunted…
An erotic paranormal romance, with laughter, suspense and a seven foot grizzly bear who will steal your heart (and your honey, better watch out!)
Mating the Honey Corner’s alpha should mean hot sex and cleaning the den. Instead, Rogue wolves, kidnapping scientists, and raging sows with PMS are Hers to Bear!
