Happy Release Week to my good friend Liv!  I’m so excited to share The Secret of Obedience with you. I had the pleasure of getting an advance peek at it – and you can see my review here.  If you want the summary – hot, sweet, and 5 stars!

The Secret of Obedience by Liv Rancourt The Secret of Obedience

By Liv Rancourt

Can a jock find love with a hot little hipster? Opposites attract, but secrets divide.

Ronnie Durand is a country boy who transfers to the University of Washington after two years at Central. He’ll have to give up playing football, though finishing his education at a major university in Seattle – and being out and proud without having to look over his shoulder – makes the sacrifice worthwhile.

But finding friends at a huge school is tough, especially when the hottest guy Ronnie meets makes him doubt his own sanity.

Sang’s been on his own a long time. He’s only a couple steps away from living on the street, and he’s got dreams so big they don’t leave space for a steady boyfriend. Then he meets Ronnie, who just might be strong enough to break through his barriers….as long as Sang lets him in on one big secret.

Excerpt:

My bike’s parked right in front of the club. “Are we going far?” I ask.

“Four or five blocks.”

I hand him the helmet. “Get on.”

He slides the helmet on, and I help him tighten the buckles. He chitters a laugh, making the moment silly and a little awkward. I straddle the bike, and when he climbs on behind me it turns me on so bad I almost come again. Damn. I want to be stretched out in a bed with Sang, both of us naked, with a box of condoms and a Costco-sized bottle of lube.

With nudges and hand signals, he guides me to a big brick apartment building about a quarter mile away. I park, and he springs off, leaving me with a sharp shiver at the loss of his heat. By the time I get the bike locked up, he’s on the front door phone. Continue reading

Bethany-Kris: Reckless and Ruined

I’m excited to have Bethany-Kris on the blog today to introduce her new book, Reckless and Ruined. Bethany and I share a similar writing style. You know – light, fun, and … oh who am I kidding. She writes seething erotic suspense with to-die-for alpha heroes. {fanning self} If you can stop staring at her gorgeous cover, you can find an example of one of those heroes in the excerpt below.

Umm – little reminder – my $25 Amazon gift card giveaway ends tomorrow – so make sure you make it all the way to the bottom of the page if you want to enter for that!

Kristina Knight: Chocolate Strawberry Smoothies

Kristina Knight in the house! I’m so excited y’all. I’ve known Kristina since we were both debut authors in 2012. She was releasing What a Texas Girl Wants, the very first book in her Texas Wishes series, and well, I live in Texas and… Friendship! So of course Kristi showed me up by bringing something delish that’s also healthy.  Chocolate and strawberries. Make sure and scroll past the recipe to check out The Anthem Series which include her latest book Start Me Up!

The days are getting shorter and cooler here on the North Coast, but I’m still craving one of my summer favorites: smoothies! RadioMan and I made mudslides (natch) and last week he created a Snickers Smoothie which was *so* good, but my go-to this summer has been Chocolate Strawberry. I’m not sure what happened with our local farmers, but their strawberries this year have been to die for. I’m going to be in serious withdrawal in a couple of weeks, but for now I’ve got fresh strawberries so let’s give this recipe a try!

1 Cup 2% milk – or whatever style of milk you prefer
1/2 packet Carnation Instant Breakfast, either the milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Your preference!
2 Scoops protein shake powder – I use Pure Protein Vanilla Continue reading
