TRR Blog Hop
May 10 to 14!
Dragos Burned was my first erotic romance, not just published, but to write.
I admit, I had a blast writing about a sexy dragoness and a fireman. I mean really, that’s like mixing fire and water 😉
Two people, falling in love.
Sweaty, animalistic sexual tension.
Calla turned the corner. The wall of the bar was longer than she’d have thought, stretching out to meet a wide shed. To her right, trees spread out beneath the moonlight. She stared into the darkness, letting her eyes change, her vision expand, searching for movement. But the sulfur quickly dissipated. Eric had fled. Again. Her body shook with memories of what he’d done. Of all she wanted to do to him in payment.
“Hey. What was that all about?” Scott asked, catching up to her.
“Shh,” she hissed.
Scott glanced out at the trees even though his sight must be next to useless. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to see even for her.
Shifting her eyes back to human, Calla turned to Scott. He stood like a warrior ready for battle. Trying to play it off, she said, “Sorry. I thought I knew that guy. But he’s gone now.”
“Uh huh.” Suspicion colored his voice. She ignored it.
“Now look, this is my town, my people to protect. You know something and you damn well better share,” he growled.
Calla glanced back at the trees, hoping for something, anything. The smallest sign of the Other.
Scott grabbed her arm and spun her around, backing her to the wooden wall of the bar. A beam of moonlight shone down on his grip.
The feel of his skin on hers sent magic and heat rushing through her body. His palm burned with fire, his fingers sending hot pulses up her arm and deep inside.
Destiny. It had caught up to her.
Who can argue with destiny? Who can turn down a sexy fireman?
Not my dragon shifter, that’s for sure, LOL.
So, you tell me, Why do you love erotic romance?
On May 15th, I will draw a random commenter to win a $5 Amazon gift card. Make sure you leave your email with your comment : ) And don’t forget to check out the other stops in the blog hop.
St Patrick’s Day Fun and Food
St Patrick’s Day. When I think of this holiday, I think ‘Irish’ and ‘Green’.
We also think Corned beef and cabbage : )
I cook this every year around St Patrick’s Day (and any other time I can get away with it, LOL). So today I thought I’d share my take on the recipe.
CROCKPOT CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
1 (3 to 4 lb.) corned beef brisket
1 large head cabbage (preferably savoy)
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 pound carrots, peeled
6 large potatoes
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground
Wash brisket. Using a small sharp knife, cut tiny X slits in the meat and insert garlic cloves pieces.
Place the meat in a large Crock-Pot and cover with water.
Bring to a boil on high setting. Boil for 10 minutes, skimming off the grey foam that rises to the surface using a wire skimmer or large spoon.
Reduce heat to lower setting and allow to simmer (not boil) for 5 hours, adding water as needed to keep covered.
Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. Quarter the cabbage, dice potatoes and carrots.
During last few hours, add vegetables and continue to cook until vegetables are tender.
Since I love giving stuff away 🙂 On this hop, I’ll be giving away a $10 Amazon gift card (winner will be drawn on Sunday) plus all commenters are entered into the Hop’s grand prize drawings.
Just answer the question in the comments: What comes to mind when you think of St Patrick’s day, and do you have any traditional ways to celebrate?
And don’t forget to visit the other wonderful authors in this hop, and see what goodies they’re giving away…
…We’re having a Blog Hop to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and wearing green! Over 120 authors are going to be telling anything they can about being Irish, celebrating the day, wearing green, drinking green beer… pretty much anything!
Each author will be giving away a prize. Like a swag pack, gift cards, ebooks, print books, and so much more.
PLUS We have TWO Grand Prizes for TWO different winners! *gasp*
Grand Prize 1: Winner’s Choice of a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
Grand Prize 2: Winner’s Choice of a $90 Amazon or Barnes&Noble Gift Card
Isn’t that exciting? LOL. So you as a reader – what do you have to do? Well, come on over to these websites on Friday March 16th and comment on as many as you want. The grand prize winners will be chosen at random from the commenters – meaning you can comment on EACH blog – meaning 120 entries to the grand prize.

Black Friday Tips and Bloghop
I love it.
With four kids, a husband, (Me, LOL) and countless family and friends to buy for, I count on Black Friday.
So, what tips do I have for you?
1) Pay attention to the ads. If you know you shop somewhere a lot, sign up for their emails. You’ll get first-hand deals all through the year, not just Black Friday.
2) Don’t use credit to shop. I’ve been there, done that, getting into debt to give my kids a good Christmas. It takes longer and costs more to pay off, so really, it’s a BAD idea…. unless…
3) Since I only have a limited amount of money saved up for Christmas, cause, you know, all the year round bills, I capitalize on Intrest Free credit cards.
– Home Depot is 0% for 6 months if you spend $299 or more. Do I need $300 worth of presents from them? Usually, no. They let you buy gift cards using credit, so that’s what I do. Then, next month when I need to buy something from HD, guess what? Yup. Gift cards.
-Amazon.com is 0% for 6 months if you spend $149 or more. I don’t know about gift cards, but I can always spend that much there between books for everyone in the family, friends, (Again, Me)…
-Walmart is running a special right now 0% for 6 months on ANY purchases made in Nov & Dec. I admit, I didn’t have a Walmart card, but when I saw this, I got one. Why? They had a high ticket item (XBox 360 Kinects bundle, which is good out-of-your-seat & family game play for the whole family). As soon as I pay it off, I’ll close the card.
Now, KEY: I’m not advocating using credit cards for Christmas shopping. (See #2)
But, if you’re like me and don’t have a hefty chunk of money for Black Friday, then shop wisely.
ANOTHER NOTE: If you’re approved for a $2500 card, PLEASE, PLEASE, don’t use it all.
You still have to pay it off, and in order to capitalize on the 0% interest, you must pay it off in the time allotted. Tonight (cause I do a lot of shopping online on Thanksgiving day – see sign up for emails) I purchased the majority of gifts I’ll be buying this year, through Amazon.com which has killer deals and usually reads ads so they can match your local sales, and Walmart (RE: Big item). I spent $400.
In order to pay that off in 6 months, it will cost me about $67 a month.
Yeah, I can afford that.
But I couldn’t afford to pay interest.
So, that’s my little bit of advice.
Now for the good stuff:
Welcome to our Black Friday blog hop! See below for the huge list of prizes!
One random commenter (can be on any of the blogs) will win a Kindle Fire, along with all the prizes below! That’s the easiest kind of shopping I can think of…

Be sure to leave your e-mail address with every comment so we can find you if you win! And don’t forget that several blog owners are giving away prizes specific to their blog, too!
