For those of you attending the convention… Let’s play a game! On Wednesday, I’ll be hosting a dirty version of Apples to Apples with authors Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, Louisa White, and Lorelie Brown & Carrie Lofty (aka Katie Porter) from 5-6pm!
And earlier on Wednesday, from 2:30-3:30, I’ll be on a panel with Beth Ciotta, Sarah Frantz, Shannon Stacey, and Erin McCarthy talking about contemporary heroes for Reinventing the Modern-Day Romeo. Oooo. Love these women. I can’t wait.
Other than that…I’ll see you at the bar. Cheers!
Too Hot To Handle - New! Almost Safe for Work Excerpt!
Too Hot to Handle is out tomorrow!!!! I posted a NSFW excerpt here. But if you’d like a slightly more safe for work excerpt, here it is! I hope you love Merry and Shane as much as I do.
Grace froze in the act of sliding a perfect smudge of black liner across her lash line and aimed a hot glare in Merry’s direction. “What do you mean Shane’s coming over?”
Merry stared in wonder. “How do you do that?” she asked for the hundredth time since she’d met her best friend. “I don’t get it. When I put eyeliner on, I look like a five-year-old playing dress up. Or an eighty-year-old alcoholic trying to recapture her glory days.”
“Close your eyes.” Grace scooted Merry around and swiped the pencil quickly over her lids. “There. I’ve shown you a million times. Now tell me why Shane’s coming over.”
Too Hot to Handle - new release!
Too Hot to Handle is out TOMORROW!!!! I had so much fun writing this story. Merry Kade is a fantastic nerdy heroine who makes all the stupid jokes I love to make. She wears graphic T-shirts and sneakers and walks around with ponytail dents in her hair. When things are bad, she insists on laughing. I love her.
Shane Harcourt, on the other hand, is a gruff western guy who’s handy with his big, gruff, western hands. He’s never met anyone like Merry. She befuddles him. Heh. She befuddles him right into bed!
More book info on my site. Here’s a little snippet.
“Oh, God, yes!” she gasped, holding the vibrator up in triumph.
She’d decided she needed it thirty minutes ago. Those thoughts of Shane hadn’t gone away on the drive home. They hadn’t even gone away when she’d tried to work on the brochure. She’d finally decided she needed to indulge her rediscovered lust and go for it while she was still in the mood.
So she’d texted Grace to be sure she was gone for the night. Then Merry had taken a quick shower. Poured a glass of wine. Gulped the wine down and poured herself another. The last step had been finding the vibrator. Three boxes later, and she had that little sucker in her hand.
“Thank God,” she sighed before heading to the kitchen to dig for batteries. And finally, she was ready.
