Good morning all! Happy Monday!

positiveCan you believe September arrives tomorrow!!?? I’m not ready to think about really cold temperatures or that dreaded S word that makes everything white. I’m just not ready.

It’s been a manic week. My kids start back to school a week from tomorrow and the last minute check list is done and everything is organized. I have a feeling we’ve missed something though and the first day back will be when we realize we have.

Thanks to being sick over this past weekend, things are crazy for today. Lots of things to catch up on.  And this week is nuts as my Son #1 heads back to full length football practices and he’s also on the leadership team so I will be Chauffeur Mom quite a bit this week. But I’m so proud of him for being on the leadership team, helping those new kids coming into grade 9 and helping them through the first few months of high school.

 

Okay, so what’s ahead?

Book News this week The WIP is shaping up very nicely. Almost finished!! I’m looking forward to writing The End on this one. I have a wolf shifter I want to write next!!

My Latest Release: FIGHTING FOR HONOR released last week and it’s doing well on Amazon etc. I was thrilled find out yesterday that it was a STAFF PICK from Lori at All Romance Ebooks, and has received a Silver Star as well, for a bestselling status. I’m pretty thrilled about it, and love that my first shifter is being received so well!! Here it is at aRe … with a pretty staff pick logo & the silver star *g* — HERE

Movie Mention this week – While I was sick over the weekend, I did a marathon with the ROCKY movies. Not # 6 — Sylvester should never have made that one — but the first 5 were awesome to watch all over again. Brought back memories of my Dad as well, they were some of his fave movies.

Reading Mention this week – I have to recommend WHAT LOLA WANTS by JoAnne Kenrick. I read it through many stages of the process, JoAnne did many editions/revisions of the story and it released this past week. It’s a fabulous and fun story that warms the heart. Be sure to check it out — HERE.

 

That’s all for now! Have a super week!!

Happy Reading!

Good morning all! Happy Monday!

ellaquoteIt’s a heat wave again!! Ontario is being slammed with huge temps, nearing 40 degrees Celsius. I’m melting and it’s not pretty!

Okay, so what’s ahead?

Book News this week — The WIP is shaping up nicely. I wrote almost 4k into the story. And have about another dozen pages hand written that I need to type up. It’s coming along at its own pace and sometimes writing is like that. My Muse doesn’t like this heat blast either!!

Book News this week — FIGHTING FOR HONOR has received it’s cover!! The talented Jay Aheer totally left me fightingforhonor1mbreathless and very, very happy with her capturing the essence of the story. I’m over the moon with this spectacular cover!

Fighting for Honor releases August 26th!

My Latest Release: Stirring Up Dirty – Contemporary Erotic Romance. Learn more about that story, HERE. It’s received some great reviews already!

I’m also very honored to have made — well Gavin & Guarding Midnight — have made it to the Final 16 in the “Sex Scene Championship” at Scorching Book Reviews this year. I’m up again tomorrow (Aug 18th) for the next round of voting!!

Movie Mention this week – I shed some tears this past weekend. I watched an oldie, The Skulls, which featured Joshua Jackson, William Peterson and my beloved, Paul Walker. I have a hard time knowing he is gone. I was very much attached to him, his acting, and the family bonding we all did in my house over the Fast & Furious Franchise. The Skulls (the first one — the 2nd and 3rd are blech) is a good movie, and showcased the young talent of up and comers like Joshua and Paul.

Reading Mention this week – I didn’t get a chance to read anything but my own WIP this past week! I hope this coming week I’ll get to take a break and indulge in something fabulous.

Personal fun this week – I’m heading to Grandpa’s today, to spend a bit of time on the water outside his back door with my son. Taking my notebook as well to get a bit of writing in while son is perfecting his kayaking skills. Mom first, then author time.

 

That’s all for now! Have a super week!!

Happy Reading!

Guest Author: Taryn Kincaid & Heat Wave

Heat-Wave2-300x450 (300x450)Sent into the human realm to retrieve prodigal princess, Zena Night, Bhyrne Raines is shocked and unprepared for his carnal reaction to the sexy succubus. In service to the succubus queen, the rugged enforcer must stifle the instant passion exploding within him. Fulfilling his royal duty doesn’t allow for quickie dalliances. His biological clock is ticking, and he begins to enter breedspawn, an intense and unstoppable frenzy of mating all fire-demon males must endure. But the more he wants to avoid Zena, the more he’s drawn to her.

Reluctant to give up her carefree life of partying among the mortals when the hot-as-sin Bhyrne comes to fetch her for the queen, Zena uses her succubus wiles to entice him, or at least delay the inevitable trip to the royal court. Once in the demon stronghold, hidden deep within the Catskill mountains, she learns the reason for the summons: she must choose a consort within two days.

Zena needs a mate. Bhyrne needs to mate. With time running out for both of them, they each turn to 1Night Stand. With time running out, can Madame Eve come to the rescue?

 

Excerpt:
Holy freeze gun, Batman. The words died before she managed to expose them to air. Her mouth snapped shut.

One of the Queen’s guards stood before her, huge and tall, nearly twice the size of most of the other males in the joint, a hella hunka supernatural male. Clearly not human, although Hugo Boss’d to his Adam’s apple in an apparent bid to fit in among the humans trolling for hot sex, illicit drugs, watered-down booze and loud music. Beneath the fabric of the unstructured designer suit, the toned muscles of a demonic warrior rolled like tidal waves. Even without the small lapel pin the uninformed might mistake for the The Rolling Stones’ logo, she’d recognize him for a captain of the guard. Maybe the Queen’s own Captain.

Hellfire and cotton candy. Trouble. T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

But, by the goddess, whattahottie! Despite her certainty that his presence in the club corridor boded ill for her, the force of her sudden hunger shook her.

Like lightning.

Thunder.

A desperate bolt out of the blue.

Instant connection to him on the paranormal plane, as if he’d wrapped her aura in gold chains and tugged her to him. But did that fast lane to heaven run one way or two?

A grim expression straightened the lines of what otherwise might have been a generous, sensuous mouth. A military buzz cut had weed-whacked hair the color of iron. And it didn’t stop there. Without doubt, metal fortified every single cell in the massive male’s body, pure titanium flowing in his veins. The stern planes and angles of a hard-edged, swoon-worthy face set grimly as cement. Though he lounged in the hallway like any Archie or Jughead waiting in line to discharge his rented beer in a urinal, he exuded authority, his carriage and bearing such that he made the others look like a pack of Twizzlers. Oh. Yeah. More than a mere guardsman, she guessed. An enforcer.

Ruh-roh.

 

About Taryn:
Taryn is an Olympic caliber athlete egg roller and spends a great deal of her time petitioning the U.S.O.C. to introduce a fantail shrimp competition. When she’s not bungee jumping off the Palisades or parasailing up and down the Hudson River, she devotes her time to caring for her aging pet walrus, arranging her voodoo doll-pin collection and practicing rhythmic chants. At this moment, she is busy sweeping up the loose masala chai tea leaves she spilled all over the kitchen floor. (Probably because she needs COFFEE.) Wait. Is that something…sparkly?

Taryn hangs around a lot on Facebook and Twitter with her trillions of fans and pops in at Goodreads from time to time. You can catch her on her website, http://tarynkincaid.com, and her blog, http://dreamvoyagers.blogspot.com where she lives for comments!
