A Huge Bang!
Since 12:01 am on the first day of the year I have been over run by emotions. Jealousy, hurt, anger, guilt, love, elation, fear and sadness.
My goodness that certainly is a lot of emotions to filter through in one single day! Or should I make that LONG day. But I turned a corner today, and today…. today is a whistling day. You know one of those days when you wake up and you can’t seem to stop your self from whistling whatever tune comes out… one of my more common tunes is the bridge over the river Quai (did I spell that wrong?) song. Do I sound a little crazy? ah maybe I am a touch. Grin. But hey a little craziness is good right? and I think that will be added to my 2008 goals… be a little more crazy each day.
Later this week I will post my 2008 goals. Which include a variety of things some personal, some writing related. Interesting how my day job didn’t seem to make the goal list in 08. (Said as I sit here at my day job and type this.) eek.
First up, a book which I read and critiqued a while back from my CP and Very dear friend Shelli Stevens Dangerous Grounds. This story is the very first in a series set in Seattle WA that will be out from Samhain publishing. This is a Romance with a bit of steam (coffee and other kinds), as well as a bit of thrill… wink.
Here is the blurb.
Something’s hot in Seattle, and it’s not just the espresso.
Madison’s needs are simple. All she wants are two things: Make Ooo La
LattÃ the newest trend in espresso, and seduce the sexiest cop in
Seattle. But things aren’t going exactly as planned.
First, Gabe’s a little hung up on the fact that she’s his best friend’s
little sister, and he’s determined to keep his hands off. Second, her
shop gets robbed by the increasingly violent Espresso Bandit, and now
she’s the only one who can identify him.
Gabe whisks her into hiding for her own protection, but soon finds his
heart is under assault by the luscious and persistent Madison. But no
matter where they hide, danger follows.
On such dangerous grounds, the trick will be to live long enough to
keep the flame alive.
Book # 2 I am pimping today is from my other dear friend and Spice Brief Sister Eden Bradley. I miss you Eden! Her book Soul Strangers Came out from Harlequin on January 1st.
Here is the blurb.
She has come to Veracruz to heal. As the warm water of the Gulf envelops her, the ocean surges, swells, caresses her tender flesh. Suddenly he is standing there–a tanned, muscular stranger, beautiful and masculine, his smile brilliant and warm. She smiles back and he moves toward her. Soon, they touch, fondle, explore one another as the sensuous sea seduces them both. And as the sun descends, they discover new heights of passion and pleasure. Few words are spoken, no names are exchanged…yet for both of them, nothing will ever again be the same.
