My Friday 56 is from: Pleasure Bound by Anne Rainey:                              

"Going away with a man for the weekend and marrying him were two totally different things and not to be confused."

From the Publisher: 

When Desire Burns This Hot…

With his sexy smile and rock-hard body, P.I. Jonas Phoenix is used to having women flock to his bed. But these days, there’s only one woman Jonas wants—and she won’t give him the time of day.

The Only Choice…

Deanna Harrison knows she can’t fight her attraction to Jonas forever, but she’s looking for more than a fling. So Jonas issues Deanna a challenge: give him one weekend at his Miami beach house to win her over. No strings attached. No limitations.

Is Surrender…

Once in Miami, the sexual tension erupts as Deanna finally lets go—and lets Jonas pleasure her in ways she’s only dreamed of. But while their bond grows stronger, danger lurks close by—and it could be deadly for them both…

So What's Your Friday 56?

Waiting on Wednesday - Outfoxed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks pre-publication "can't wait to read" selection is:  Outfoxed by Marie Harte 

When a cat tries to outsmart a sexy fox, only love can save him.

A Cougar Falls Story

Grady Chastell, Shifter extraordinaire, wants to take a mate—the delectable Gabby Easton. She’s sexy, kind, and has the extraordinary ability to shift into two animal spirits, cat and fox. There’s just one problem.

Gabby won’t take him seriously.

He’s at his wits’ end trying to convince her to give him a chance when trouble comes knocking at his door. Before he knows it, he’s unwittingly party to one whopper of a lie that finally has Gabby where he wants her…but will she feel the same when she realizes she’s been duped?

It will take all his cunning, the help of the pride, and a good bit of mutual trickery to convince his foxy lady to forgive and forget. And more, to love him—the cat born to be hers.

Warning: Arrogant cats who think they can outsmart the slyest of foxes. A cat war, devious siblings, hijinks with consequences, and the threat of sexualized danger as a foxy feline turns the tables on a man who likes to tell tales.

Teaser Tuesday - Dark, Deadly Love

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along 
just do the following:

  • Grab your current read 
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be Careful Not to Include Spoilers (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.

Alexandra's mouth dropped open as Ross turned her toward him and kept his arm about her waist.  As they pressed together from chest to knees, she placed her gloved hands on his chest.  Tingles of excitement whirled through her system like a tiny tornado.  As she took a deep breath, she inhaled his masculine scent. 
She found herself trapped in his dark gaze. "Ross, this isn't proper."  

Dark, Deadly Love 

A woman with secrets. A haunted man. A slayer without remorse…

Alexandra Watson is too tall, too opinionated, too American. Too everything for London society—and for Sir Ross Havenwood. Once she dreamed of being his wife, but when she steps off the ship, orphaned and penniless, it’s with the knowledge Ross only feels an obligation to protect her as his ward.

Her empathic abilities tell her that the one man she once trusted is haunted by a dangerous edge. That edge intrigues her…and fuels dreams of murder too brutal to share.

Ross’s life has been a series of missteps. A military career that destroyed his wife. A superficial society he disdains but must endure—along with premonitions he must keep to himself. Alexandra is a sweet, bright bloom in his shadowed life and desire for her burns his soul. Yet if he reveals dreams in which he is a killer, even she will think him mad.

Then the stubborn Alexandra insists on sheltering a young servant who harbors a deadly secret. A secret that will bring them both face-to-face with a relentless menace whose razor-sharp blade is aimed at their hearts…

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or if you don't have a blog share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here. Thanks for playing along!

Waiting on Wednesday - How To Love Your Dragon

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

How to Love Your Dragon (Fire Mate, Book 2) by Lexxie Couper

Yorick “Rick” Hayes takes only two things seriously—his work as a veterinarian and the seduction of lovely ladies. He’s unprepared for the lovely lady police officer who pulls him over for speeding, however. Inexplicable, overwhelming lust threatens to make him do something stupid—like try to seduce her on the side of the road. Throw in sudden flashes of past life memories and Rick is confused, monumentally horny and borderline obsessed with his sexy, no-nonsense cop.

For nearly half a century, Officer Kenna Mackay has denied her dragon side. Her twin sister was betrayed by her mate, and Kenna refuses to risk the same fate—until she makes eye contact with Rick. Her dragon awakens with a vengeance, the mating fire claiming both woman and beast. Hard. Hot. Unstoppable. And exquisitely arousing. The dragon wants her Fire Mate—now.

But history could repeat itself when that mate turns out to be a Druid; one who may have done something bad to dragon-kind in his past life. Something very, very bad indeed.

The Joys of Reading In Bed on Sunday

I love Sundays, while I do get up early to fix breakfast and attend church, I always come back home with lunch and then I curl up in bed, under a blanket and read.  Sometimes I read on the kindle, sometimes it's a print book, it doesn't really matter because nothing is better than being able to read and then if I need a short nap - I can do that too.  What are your plans for today?

I've just started reading The Price of Temptationby Lecia Cornwall, it's pretty good so far.  

Once wed to England’s most notorious turncoat . . .

Lady Evelyn Renshaw can ignore the disgrace her former husband has brought down upon her. She can even disregard the accusations. But when her life is threatened because of his actions, she realizes a stiff upper lip won’t be enough to keep her safe. So she hires a new footman powerful enough to protect her . . . only to find herself shamelessly intoxicated by his breathtaking masculinity.

Captain Sinjon Rutherford is no footman . . . but there are those who believe him a traitor. The only way to prove his innocence is by playing the part of elegant Lady Evelyn’s servant in order to infiltrate her home and uncover the truth about her suspicious relations. Yet what seems at first an easy deception is anything but, once he meets his alluring new employer and discovers just how tempting a woman in charge can be . . .

Because sometimes passion hides in plain sight.

So what are your Sunday plans?

Love Is In The Air Blog Hop - 2012

Welcome to the Love is in the Air Blog Hop being hosted by Under the Covers Book Blog.  All of the prizes will be book related, nothing is better than getting something to do with books for a book lover over Valentine's Day.  

I'm doing an International giveaway and will be giving one winner their choice of either an Amazon Gift Card for $10 
or their choice of book from The Book Depository (as long as they can ship to your country).

Since the topic of the hop is love, I thought I'd share one of my favorite clips from a romantic movie.  I think this is an incredibly sexy scene!

Sunday, February 5, 2012


Today I just plan to relax, eat lots of junk food and watch the Game.

I can't wait to see what the new commercials are this year.  Here's a clip of one of my all time favorites

Have a great day and enjoy the game!
